Terms of Service

READ THESE CENTRAL TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. THEY ARE A LEGAL CONTRACT GOVERNING YOUR USE OF THE SITE PROVIDED BY DIGITALSTREAM COMMUNICATIONS AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES (collectively, “DigitalStream Communications,” “we,” or “us,” or “our”).

These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the website, mobile application or other online service where these Terms are posted (collectively, the Site). By clicking an Accept, Register or similar button or icon, connecting to the Site through a third party such as Facebook or by accessing, browsing, or using the Site in any manner, you agree to be bound to these Terms and our Privacy Policy, whether or not you registered with the Site. All references to “you” or “your,” as applicable, mean the person who accesses, uses, and/or participates in the Site in any manner, and each of your heirs, assigns, and successors. The Site reserves the right to deny access to any person who violates these Terms.

Eligibility. The Site is intended solely for persons who are 13 or older. Any access to or use of the Site by anyone under 13 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Site you represent and warrant that you are 13 or older.

Copyright. All information, content, services and software displayed on, transmitted through, or used in connection with the Site (with the exception of User Content as defined below), including, for example, news articles, stories, reviews, directories, guides, text, photographs, images, illustrations, audio clips, video, html, source and object code, trademarks, logos, and the like (collectively, the “Content”), as well as its selection and arrangement, is owned by DigitalStream Communicatios and/or its licensors and suppliers. You may use the Content online only, and solely for your personal, non-commercial use, and you may download or print a single copy of any portion of the Content solely for your personal, non-commercial use, provided you do not remove any trademark, copyright or other notice from such Content. If you operate a Web site and wish to link to the Site, you may do so provided you agree to cease such link upon request from us. No other use is permitted without prior written permission of DigitalStream Communications. The permitted use described in this section is contingent on your compliance at all times with these Terms.

Except where explicitly provided for herein or on the Site, you may not republish any portion of the Content on any Internet, Intranet, extranet site or any other online or offline publication, or incorporate the Content in any database, compilation, archive, cache, or similar medium. You may not distribute any Content to others, whether or not for payment or other consideration, and you may not archive, modify, copy, frame, cache, reproduce, sell, publish, transmit, display or otherwise use any portion of the Content. You may not scrape or otherwise copy our Content without our permission. You agree not to decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble any software or other products or processes accessible through the Site nor to insert any code or product or manipulate the Content or the Site in any way, and not to use any data mining, data gathering or extraction method.

Requests to use Content for any purpose other than as permitted in these Terms should be directed to termsofservice@MusicPressAsia.com. In certain cases, you may be able to use individual stories, articles, or video that appear on the Site through online functionality we have specifically designated (e.g., to e-mail a story to a friend or to purchase the rights to reproduce a story for other use). In such cases, we will tell you directly in the portion of the Content you may use or you will see a link in the Content itself that will permit you to email the story, article, or video, or purchase the rights to reproduce it.

Registration. Registration is not required to view certain Content. However, to use some parts of the Site — including without limitation, if you wish to post a comment or upload a photo or video, or view certain other Content — you may be required to register or subscribe and provide certain information about yourself. If you become a registered member of the Site, you accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your registration account. You agree to provide true, accurate, complete, and correct information at the time of registration, and to promptly update this information as needed so that it remains true, accurate, complete, and correct. We reserve the right to terminate your access and use of the Site if individuals from more than one household access the Site using any single registration account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your computer so others outside your household may not access the Site using your name in whole or in part without your permission. If you believe someone has accessed the Site using your registration account and password without your authorization, e-mail us immediately at termsofservice@MusicPressAsia.com

Unsolicited Material and Ideas. We are happy to hear from our users and welcome feedback regarding our Site. The Site is not responsible for the similarity of any of its content or programming in any media to materials or ideas provided to the Site. If you do transmit unsolicited submissions to us through the Site or otherwise, you grant DigitalStream Communications a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and fully sub-licensable license to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, adapt, translate, archive, store, and create derivative works from such submissions, and you understand and agree that such submissions may be adapted, broadcast, changed, copied, disclosed, licensed, performed, posted, published, sold, transmitted, or otherwise used as DigitalStream Communications sees fit. By using the Site and transmitting an unsolicited submission to us, you agree that you are not entitled to any compensation, credit or notice whatsoever with respect to such submission, and that by sending an unsolicited submission you waive the right to make any claim against the Site, DigitalStream Communications and its parents, officers or directors relating to our use of such submission, including, without limitation, infringement of proprietary rights, unfair competition, breach of implied contract or breach of confidentiality, even if material or an idea is used that is or may be substantially similar to the idea you sent.

Transactions and E-Commerce. During your visit to the Site, you may elect to engage in a transaction involving the purchase of a product such as a membership subscription, a print or online advertisement or other tangible goods and services. Credit card transactions and order fulfillment are often handled by a third-party processing agent, bank or distribution institution. While in most cases transactions are completed without difficulty, there is no such thing as perfect security on the Internet or offline. If you are concerned about online credit card safety, in most cases a telephone number will be made available so you can call us and place your order by phone. The Site cannot and does not take responsibility for the success or security of transactions undertaken or processed by third parties.

Linked Sites If we provide links to other websites, you should not infer or assume that we operate, control, or are otherwise connected with these other websites. Please be careful to read the applicable terms and conditions and privacy policy of any other website before you provide any personal information or engage in any transactions. We are not responsible for the content or practices of any website not part of the Site, even if the website is operated by a company affiliated or otherwise connected with us. By using the Site, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible or liable to you for any content or other materials hosted, served, or residing on the domain from any websites other than the Site and then only to the extent provided for herein.

During your visit to the Site, you may link to, or view as part of a frame, certain content that is actually created, hosted and/or licensed by a third party. Because the Site has no control over third-party sites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that the Site is not responsible for the availability of external websites or resources, nor for the content, actions, or policies of those sites. Information you provide on such websites, including personal information and transactional information, is subject to the applicable terms and conditions and privacy policy of those websites.

Errors in Advertisements. On occasion, a product or service may not be available at the time or the price as it appears in an advertisement or other material in the Site. In such event, or in the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error, technology error, error in the date or length of publication, error in pricing or product information received from our advertisers or suppliers, or for any other reason, you agree the Site is not responsible for such errors or discrepancies.

Communications with Third Parties Through the Site. Your dealings or communications through the Site with any party other than DigitalStream Communications are solely between you and that third party. For example, certain areas of the Site may allow you to conduct transactions or purchase goods or services. In most cases, these transactions will be conducted by our third-party partners and vendors. Under no circumstances will the Site be liable for any goods, services, resources or content available through such third-party dealings or communications, or for any harm related thereto. Please review carefully that third party’s policies and practices and make sure you are comfortable with them before you engage in any transaction. Complaints, concerns or questions relating to materials provided by third parties should be directed to the third party.

General Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability. While the Site and DigitalStream Communications use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, neither the Site nor DigitalStream Communications make any warranties or representations as to the accuracy of the Content and assume no liability or responsibility for any error or omission in the Content. The Site and DigitalStream Communications do not represent or warrant that use of any Content will not infringe rights of third parties. The Site and Los Angeles Times have no responsibility for actions of third parties or for content provided by others, including without limitation User Content.

No Waiver. Any failure of the Site to enforce or exercise any provision of these Terms or related right shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
