i. Notices

In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.

j. Subscriptions

BeLive Studios account holders may access the Services by any of our several subscriptions:

 

 

The Lite Service and the Standard Service are hereinafter referred to as “Paid Subscriptions”.

These Terms of Use apply to you whether you are a "Visitor" (which means that you are simply using the Free Services) or a "Registered User" (which means that you have registered with BeLive Studios to participate in Paid Subscription).  The term "User" refers to both a Visitor and a Registered User.  Registration Process.  Users may register for a Paid Subscription to the Services, here https://belive.tv/packages . By registering for a Paid Subscription to the Services, you warrant that (1) you are at least 18 years of age (or older where required under applicable law), (2) all information you provided during the registration process is true and accurate, (3) you will not permit third parties to access your account information, or to otherwise assign or transfer your rights to the Services, (4) you are the account holder of any PayPal account you provide to us and (5) you will provide us with a current, valid and accepted PayPal account (as such may be updated from time to time, the “Payment Method”) throughout the term of your Paid Subscription. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your registration and login information.  Accordingly, if your payment cannot be processed for any reason, including because your Payment Method is no longer valid, we may terminate your access to the Services immediately. You are responsible for all charges incurred during your use of the Services, including any charges incurred on your account by other parties. PLEASE NOTE THAT SUCCESSFUL REGISTRATION FOR A PAID SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SERVICES IS SUBJECT TO OUR ACCEPTANCE AND CONFIRMATION TO YOU, WHICH MAY BE GIVEN OR REFUSED IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.

Month-to-Month Recurring Paid Subscription. All monthly (as opposed to yearly) Paid Subscriptions are on a month-to-month recurring basis, beginning on the date we confirm that we have accepted your order for the Services and continuing for recurring one (1) month periods from the date on which you make your first payment for your chosen Paid Subscription to Services unless and until you cancel your Paid Subscription or we terminate it (in each case in accordance with these Terms). This paragraph is applicable solely to monthly Paid Subscriptions. If you purchase a Paid Subscription, then each month of your Paid Subscription beginning on the date on which your first payment is payable to us, we will charge your Payment Method and you authorize us to collect the applicable Paid Subscription payment and applicable taxes.  You can cancel your monthly Paid Subscription at any time, but you must cancel your Paid Subscription before it renews for a subsequent month in order to avoid being charged for the subsequent month’s Paid Subscription fees.  UNLESS YOU NOTIFY US BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT APPLICABLE MONTHLY PERIOD THAT YOU WISH TO CANCEL YOUR PAID SUBSCRIPTION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR PAID SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONTINUE FOR SUCCESSIVE ONE (1) MONTH PERIODS AND YOU AUTHORIZE US TO COLLECT THE APPLICABLE PAID SUBSCRIPTION PAYMENT AND APPLICABLE TAXES.

The yearly Paid Subscription is a 12 month fixed term which is paid for in full in advance, and is non-recurring. In contrast to a month to month recurring Paid Subscription, it cannot be cancelled during the 12 month term by the User.

 

Billing Information.  Should you register for a Paid Subscription, we automatically bill your Payment Method each month, on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Paid Subscription, in the event of a monthly Paid Subscription, and in the event of a yearly Paid Subscription – a one time payment for the full 12 months on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your yearly Paid Subscription. 

Sales/Use Taxes.  BeLive Studios may be required to collect sales or use tax for certain purchases, including for the purchase of Paid Subscriptions.  In states or regions that impose a sales or use tax, certain purchases might be subject to tax even if BeLive Studios is not required to collect sales or use tax by any particular state or region.  A purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog, or by other remote means. Whether sales or use tax will be collected on a given purchase and the amount of the tax charged depends on a number of factors including whether the seller is subject to a tax collection obligation in that state or region.  The purchaser may be responsible for any taxes not collected by BeLive Studios.  Certain states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return annually reporting taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay such tax.  For details, see the website of the applicable taxing authority.  If BeLive Studios collects sales or use tax in connection with a purchase, the amount of the tax will either be shown prior to completion of the purchase or reflected in the final confirmation of that purchase.

Cancellation/Refund Policy.  You may only cancel your Paid Subscription to the Services in accordance with these Terms.  To cancel your monthly Paid Subscription, you may click “Cancel Subscription” in the Billing Information section of your Services account in the website. Cancellations will only be effective at the end of each Paid Subscription period. Except only as otherwise expressly set out in these Terms, PAID SUBSCRIPTION FEES ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS, PARTIAL REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PAID SUBSCRIPTIONS OR PARTIAL PAID SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS.  This means that you will have continued access to the Services for the remainder of the current Paid Subscription period and will not receive a refund.  

However, please note, in addition, that you have a right to cancel your Paid Subscription and receive a full refund (if we have taken any payments) at any time during the period commencing from the time at which we accept your order for the Services and ending at the end of the 14th full day after the date on which we accepted your order, but only if you have not logged in or otherwise used the Services under the Paid Subscription (“Cooling-Off Period”). If you have a Paid Subscription, you may cancel it without cause at any time, but PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ANY CANCELLATIONS MADE IN THIS WAY AFTER EXPIRY OF THE COOLING-OFF PERIOD WILL ONLY BE EFFECTIVE AT THE END OF THE RELEVANT PAID SUBSCRIPTION MONTH IN WHICH THE CANCELLATION IS MADE (AND IN THE EVENT OF A YEARLY PAID SUBSCRIPTION, CANCELLATION AFTER THE COOLING-OFF PERIOD WILL NOT ENTITLE TO ANY REFUND).  This means that if you cancel for convenience after the Cooling-Off Period, you will have continued access to Services under the applicable Paid Subscription for the remainder of the then current Paid Subscription month/year (as applicable) and will not receive a refund.

BeLive Studios may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions from time to time, and will communicate any price changes to you. Price changes for Paid Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. By continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect, you accept the new price. 

k. Terminating your access to the Services

We, in our sole discretion, have the right to terminate or suspend your access to the Services (including Paid Subscription) immediately and with or without cause and/or notice, without liability, and these Terms will remain in effect, provided that with respect to termination of Paid Subscription such shall not take effect until the end of the then current Paid Subscription month/year (and we will not take any payment from you in respect of the subsequent month (or thereafter)).

Copyright and Content Policy

It is our policy to respect the legitimate rights of copyright and other intellectual property owners.

Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Section 512 (the "DMCA"), we have designated an agent (specified below) to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement on our Services. Please be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers. The DMCA addresses the rights and obligations of owners of copyrighted material who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed on the Internet, as well as the rights and obligations of Internet Service Providers (as defined in the DMCA) on whose servers infringing material may reside. However, BeLive Studios will also process claims of copyright infringement substantially in accordance with the DMCA procedures for owners of copyrighted materials who believe their rights have been infringed in their jurisdiction or in the jurisdiction of the infringing website owner, even if US Copyright Law are not applicable (but the process of conducting a takedown request will be similar). Notwithstanding the foregoing, please note that the Services are being provided via Facebook Live and therefore we may not have the right or ability to provide any remedy with respect to such infringement notification.

If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide our Copyright Agent with the following information in accordance with the DMCA:

  1. an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
  2. a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed; a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the our Services, with enough detail that we may find it on our Services; providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly;
  3. your address, telephone number, and email address;
  4. a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and
  5. a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner's behalf.

Our designated agent for notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement can be reached as follows:

Please also note that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.

 

Counter-Notification

If you believe that the material you submitted, uploaded, broadcasted and/or posted was removed by mistake, and that you have the right to submit, upload, broadcast and/or post the material, you may elect to send us a counter notice. To be effective the counter-notification must be a written communication provided to our designated agent that includes substantially the following (please consult your legal counsel or see 17 U.S.C. Section 512(g)(3) to confirm these requirements):

  1. A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
