Terms of Service
IMPORTANT NOTICE: DISPUTES ABOUT THESE TERMS AND THE TRUBIFY APP ARE SUBJECT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND A WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION RIGHTS AS DETAILED IN THE “MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER” SECTION BELOW.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF AND ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES (DEFINED BELOW) ARE SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE FOLLOWING, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER.
Welcome to Trubify. These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) are a binding agreement between you and Live Music Streaming Technology, Inc. (“Trubify”, “us”, “the Company” or "we”). Please read these Terms carefully before using Trubify’s website (http://www.trubify.com, or the “Website”), mobile application (“Trubify” or the “Application”), or associated products and services (collectively the “Services”). These Terms apply regardless of how you access the Services. As used in these Terms, "Trubify Account" means the account you have with us for the Services. “You", “artist”, “fan”, “patron”, “user” and "your" mean the person who uses or accesses the Services.
The Services are controlled and offered by Trubify from the United States of America. Trubify makes no representations that the Services are appropriate for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Services from other locations do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with local law.
Trubify is a livestreaming music app that helps artists receive appreciation from fans while finding their audiences as well as allowing fans to connect and support musicians that they like. Appreciation is received in the form of Digital Content, called TruCoins.
The Digital Content that Trubify may offer, on a promotional basis or for purchase, allows Users to express appreciation for specific Users using the Tip feature on the Trubify Services in addition to TruCoins redeemed from views of livestreams and archive streams.
Users acknowledge that Digital Content given to another User in the form of a tip is a gift of appreciation and in no way entitles the tipper to any goods or services from the artist or tipped User.
Your use of Digital Content is subject to Trubify’s Terms of Service, which may be amended without notice by Trubify.
Your Digital Content will remain in your Trubify Account until you redeem any or all of your TruCoins from your Trubify Account using the Withdraw feature. TruCoins may be redeemed for a cash value which may be transferred to your PayPal account by using the Trubify Withdraw feature. We will generally transfer the requested transfer from your Trubify Account to your PayPal account within fifteen (15) Business Days of when we receive your request. It is important for you to know the amount of available balance in your Trubify Account before instructing us to transfer the requested amount from your Trubify Account to your PayPal account. If you do not have a sufficient available balance in your Trubify Account to cover the amount of the requested transfer, your request for the transfer will be declined. We may also transfer from your Trubify Account to your PayPal account without notice to you upon the closure of your Trubify Account as described below and at any time if required by applicable law or if we, in our sole discretion, suspect the Services are being used for illicit purposes or otherwise in violation of these Terms.
Trubify is not a financial adviser, and the Services are not intended to provide financial advice. We are not responsible for ensuring your Account has a sufficient balance for your needs, purposes, or transactions. We do not make any representations, warranties, or guarantees of any kind that the Services are appropriate for you. Before using the Services, you should consider obtaining additional information and advice from a financial adviser.
Your Content and Conduct
If you have a Trubify Account, you may be able to livestream or upload Content to the Service. You may use your content to promote your music business or music-related artistic enterprise. If you choose to upload Content, you must not submit to the Service any content that does not comply with this Agreement (including the Trubify Community Guidelines) or the law. For example, the Content you submit must not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so. You are legally responsible for the Content you submit to the Service.
We may use automated or manual systems that analyze your Content to help detect infringement and abuse, such as spam, malware, and illegal content.
Rights you Grant
You retain ownership rights in your Content. However, we do require you to grant certain rights to Trubify and other Users of the Service, as described below.
License to Trubify
By providing Content to the Service, you grant, to Trubify, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use that Content (including to reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display and perform it) in connection with the Service and Trubify’s (and its successors' and Affiliates') business, including for the purpose of promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service.
License to Other Users
You also grant each other user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to access your Content through the Service, and to use that Content, including to record, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works, display, and perform it, only as enabled by a feature of the Service (such as video playback or embeds). For clarity, this license does not grant any rights or permissions for a user to make use of your Content independent of the Service.
Duration of License
The licenses granted by you continue for a commercially reasonable period of time after you remove or delete your Content from the Service. You understand and agree, however, that Trubify may retain, but not display, distribute, or perform, server copies of your videos that have been removed or deleted.
Removing Your Content
You may remove your Content from the Service at any time. You must remove your Content if you no longer have the rights required by these terms.
Removal of Content By Trubify
If we reasonably believe that any Content is in breach of this Agreement or may cause harm to Trubify, our Users, or third parties, we may remove or take down that Content at our discretion.
To the best of our ability, Trubify tries to protect copyright holders’ intellectual property within our site, application, and services. If you believe your copyright has been infringed upon within the Service, please report the stream using the report feature and send us a notice.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and reserve the right to remove Content, suspend Accounts, or terminate Accounts as we see fit.
Account Suspension & Termination
Terminations by You
You may close your Account at any time. To close your Account please use the “Delete my account” feature or contact Customer Support. User acknowledges that Trubify has no duty to maintain or provide to user any content that was created, viewed, or posted by User before or after deleting the Account.
Users cannot close an Account with an account balance. If you want to close your Account with an account balance under the withdrawal limit you can forfeit your coins or gift them to other Users. If you want to close your Account with an account balance above the withdrawal limit, you can withdraw your balance to your PayPal account or gift your balance to another artist before closing the Account.
Terminations and Suspensions by Trubify for Cause
Trubify may suspend or terminate your access to all or part of the Service if you materially or repeatedly breach this Agreement, we are required to do so to comply with a legal requirement or a court order, or we believe there has been conduct that creates (or could create) liability or harm to any user, other third party, Trubify or our Affiliates.
Terminations by Trubify for Service Changes
Trubify may terminate your access to all or part of the Service if Trubify believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable.
Effect of Account Suspension or Termination
If your Trubify Account is terminated or your Trubify Account’s access to the Service is restricted, you may continue using certain aspects of the Service (such as viewing only) without an Account, and this Agreement will continue to apply to such use. If you believe your Trubify Account has been terminated in error, you can appeal by contacting Customer Support.
Trubify is not a bank. Trubify is not acting as a trustee, fiduciary or escrow with respect to your Trubify Account balance.
You are responsible for ensuring your Account has a sufficient balance for your needs, purposes, or transactions and Trubify makes no guarantees or representations that your portion of the Trubify Account will grow to a specific amount or that the Services are appropriate for you and your financial situation.

More than one PayPal account can be linked to a Trubify Account, but a PayPal account can only be linked to one Trubify Account. You must own or be an authorized user of the linked PayPal account. Subject to change by Trubify without notice, all available user balances, including, but not limited to, tips, or rewards for livestream and archived views, and other Digital Content, will be held in the Trubify Account for a period of one (1) year from the date of receiving the Digital Content or until you choose to withdraw some or all of your Trubify Account balance, whichever occurs first.

This Section 15 is intended to be interpreted broadly and governs any and all disputes between us including but not limited to claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before these Terms or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims related to advertising); and claims that may arise after the termination of these Terms. The only disputes excluded from this broad prohibition are the litigation of certain intellectual property and small court claims, as provided below.
Initial Dispute Resolution. Most disputes can be resolved without resort to arbitration. If you have any dispute with us, you agree that before taking any formal action, you will contact us at email@example.com and provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including your username, if your dispute relates to an Account). Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation with Trubify, and good faith negotiations shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
Binding Arbitration. If the parties do not reach an agreed-upon solution within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is initiated under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, (except as provided in subsection (g) below) subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including the Terms’ formation, performance, and breach), the parties' relationship with each other, and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules for claims that do not exceed $250,000 and the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures for claims exceeding $250,000 in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.
Arbitrator’s Powers. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms including but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms is void or voidable, whether a claim is subject to arbitration, or the question of waiver by litigation conduct. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator's award shall be written and shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Filing a Demand. To start an arbitration, you must do the following: (a) Write a Demand for Arbitration that includes a description of the claim and the amount of damages you seek to recover (you may find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com); (b) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco California 94111; and (c) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to us at: Live Music Streaming Technology, Inc., 3001 Red Hill Ave, Building 3, Suite 210, Costa Mesa, CA, 92626
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Trubify will pay the additional cost. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, Trubify will pay the fees invoiced by JAMS, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses. You are responsible for your own attorneys' fees unless the arbitration rules and/or applicable law provide otherwise.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. Arbitration may take place in the county where you reside at the time of filing, unless you and we both agree to another location or telephonic arbitration.
Class Action Waiver. The parties further agree that the arbitration shall be conducted in the party’s respective individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND TRUBIFY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out Live Music Streaming Technology, Inc., 3001 Red Hill Ave, , Building 3, Suite 210, Costa Mesa, CA, 92626, Attn: Arbitration Opt-Out. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Services. Otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of these paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Trubify also will not be bound by them.
Changes to This Section. Trubify will provide thirty (30) days' notice of any changes to this section by posting on the Website. Amendments will become effective thirty (30) days after they are posted on the Website or sent to you by email. Changes to this section will otherwise apply prospectively only to claims arising after the thirtieth (30th) day. If a court or arbitrator decides that this subsection on "Changes to This Section" is not enforceable or valid, then this subsection shall be severed from the section entitled Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver, and the court or arbitrator shall apply the first Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section in existence after you began using the Services.
Survival. This Mandatory Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your use of the Services.
