- GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration, both parties here will agree on the following:
4.1. MusicIncite reserves the right to modify the Software, without notice, at any time, and without liability to Licensee.
4.2. MusicIncite grants to Licensee, a non-transferable license to use the Software on a single computer at Licensee’s business or home location. No additional copies are allowed (for example, the Software must not get copied during a business’s backup processes)
4.2.1. Licensee agrees not to copy or disclose in any form whatsoever any of the contents of the Access Email.
4.3. In consideration of feedback and usability input, a Licensee will receive ongoing updates to the Software. With the availability of the first general release, emuso V1.0, the Licensee, will be upgraded to version 1.0, with all intermediate ‘point’ releases inclusive, prior to release 2.0.
4.3.1. Customers who buy a licence for emuso after the release of (non-beta) version 1.0, will receive a licence for version 1.0 and all subsequent “point releases” of version 1. A point release is one which does not result in a new version number, for example, version 1.1 or version 1.9.3. A new user buying emuso at version 2.1 would also receive all point releases of version 2 software going forward. Upgrades from earlier versions of the software will be available to existing users at a reduced cost. Subscription buyers will receive ongoing support and upgrades as long as they are current subscribers.
4.4. Licensee agrees that the Service is the sole property of MusicIncite and includes valuable trade secrets of MusicIncite. Without the express written authorization of MusicIncite, Licensee agrees to not:
4.4.1. Copy, sell or market any components of the Service to any third party; or
4.4.2. Modify, reuse, disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer or otherwise translate Software or any portion thereof;
4.5. The Service is released to the public as ‘version 1.0’ standard. This refers to the fact that the software may yet contain limited errors and as such is provided ‘as is’ – without warranty (see section 14 and 15). The entire risk arising from use, or performance of the software is the sole responsibility of the licensee.
4.6. MusicIncite will not be liable for any damage whatsoever arising out of the use of or inability to use the Service.
4.7. This License Agreement shall be governed, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom. Licensee shall comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, regulations, and ordinances in connection with its activities pursuant to this Agreement.
4.8. You may provide Musicincite Ltd with ideas, opinions, recommendations, feedback, or advice (collectively, “Feedback”) in connection with your use of the Service. If you submit Feedback to Musicincite Ltd, you hereby grant Musicincite Ltd an irrevocable, perpetual, transferable, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, royalty-free, worldwide license (sublicensable through multiple tiers) to (a) use, copy, distribute, reproduce, modify, create derivative works of, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform, and publicly display such Feedback (or any modification thereto), in whole or in part, in any format, medium or application now known or later developed; and (b) use, and permit others to use, Feedback in any manner and for any purpose (including, without limitation, commercial purposes) that Musicincite Ltd deems appropriate in its discretion (including, without limitation, incorporating Feedback, in whole or in part, into the Service or any subsequent technology, product or service created by MI Ltd). From time to time, MusicIncite, Ltd. or a third party engaged by MusicIncite may request feedback and other information from You about such topics as the Products or Your experiences with the Products (“Feedback”). Providing MusicIncite with Feedback is optional. By providing Feedback to MusicIncite, You grant MusicIncite a nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable and fully sub-licensable right to use the Feedback for any lawful purpose, including, without limitation, the right to reproduce, adapt, publish, translate, distribute, and display all or parts of the Feedback in any medium whatsoever along with Your first name and last initial, and local geographic area, as determined by MusicIncite in its sole discretion. MusicIncite may also use the Feedback in anonymous and aggregate reviews.
4.9. MusicIncite reserves the right to update these terms and conditions without prior notice. You agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on our website and that Licensee’s use of the Software after the effective date of the Updated Terms constitutes Licensee’s agreement to the Updated Terms.
4.10. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING YOUR DETAILS PROVIDED DURING THE EMUO BUY PROCESS (via https://emuso.buzz/buy-emuso-studio) ARE ACCURATE (ESPECIALLY EMAIL ADDRESS). FAILURE TO PROVIDE THE CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS WILL RESULT IN NO EMAILS ARRIVING FROM OUR DISTRIBUTOR, PADDLE.COM. THESE EMAILS CONTAIN THE EMUSO DOWNLOAD LINK AND LICENSE ACTIVATION CODE, AS WELL AS YOUR INVOICE. Should a mistake be made, the buy process will appear to hang for several minutes. If such a mistake is made, contact email@example.com and provide us with the incorrect email address used, as well as the correct email address. We will then investigate, and provide the missing details provided our database shows the transaction completed based on that incorrect email address.
4.11. Emuso Licence Activation requires Internet Access. Following on from successful licence activation, the software uses the association of the validated licence to ensure use in line with these Terms and Conditions. Each time emuso is used, it will seek to validate the currency of the associated licence using the internet. You may use emuso where there is no internet access although there is a limit to how many times this may be done and this is currently set to 15 times. After 15 such sessions, the software will warn that it requires it’s licence to be validated and that you should connect to the internet and restart the software to facilitate this. There is a total of five warnings issued in this way before the software will become disabled due to the inability to validate the emuso Licence.
4.12. LICENSE DEACTIVATION REQUIRES INTERNET ACCESS. AFTER SUCCESSFUL DEACTIVATION, THE SOFTWARE LICENSE IS NO LONGER KNOWN TO THE SOFTWARE ON THE MACHINE YOU USED FOR DEACTIVATION. YOU MAY, ACCORDING TO THE RIGHTS GRANTED BY 3.2.2, INSTALL A COPY OF THE SOFTWARE ON ANOTHER MACHINE, AND ACTIVATE THE LICENSE AGAIN, WITH THE SAME LICENSE DETAILS.
This policy tells you:
- what information we may collect about you
- how we may use that information
- your choices and options around the personal information you give us
- when we may use your details to contact you
- what information of yours we may share with others
This Policy covers the use of the Service.
Emuso software means the software offered for sale via the emuso.buzz website. The emuso.buzz website refers to the website (https://www.emuso.buzz) where emuso is offered for sale and which also hosts interactive content to be loaded and executed by the emuso software.
This policy, therefore, covers the browsing of the emuso.buzz website, purchases made via that website and the subsequent installation and use of emuso and the access to the emuso.buzz provided by the emuso software.
What’s not covered in this policy?
Our services sometimes link to services run by other companies, like when you share a link to our website via one of the social media platforms whose links are provided on our site. Those companies have their own privacy and cookies policies, so remember that the information you give them will follow their rules and not ours.
When purchasing emuso online via our site, when it comes time to make the payment, we use our payment services partner, Paddle, to handle this aspect of the transaction. This phase of the buying journey is covered by Paddle’s standard user terms and conditions.
5.3. How do you protect my personal information?
We’re strongly committed to keeping your information safe. And to do this we have designed our services with your privacy and safety in mind. We use HTTPS for all data exchanged between your machine and our website and store all user data in encrypted form.
At the same time, no service can be completely secure – if you have any concerns that your emuso Account or your personal information has been put at risk, for example, if someone could have found out your password, please get in touch right away by email to:
Where we store your information
Our services are provided from within the UK. Any information that you give to us is transmitted to us, and stored, in encrypted form.
5.4. What types of personal information does Musicincite Ltd. collect about me?
We’ll give details about why we need your personal information and how we’ll use it before you begin unless it’s obvious.
Information that you give us
- i. Registering on ourbuzzwebsite your subscription to receive our newsletter.
Our newsletter is designed to inform users and potential users of upcoming developments and enhancements, new products and features. If you elect to receive our newsletter, we will request your email address and your first and last name. We use this data to address you politely in providing your newsletter and the email address tells us where to send it to or provide you with a link to the newsletter. You do not need to buy emuso in order to receive the newsletter.
- Data Gathered During Purchasing a licence to use emuso.
Data we gather about you to support your purchase of emuso is as follows:-
- Your first and last name.
- Your phone number.
- Your email address.
- Which country you live in.
- Whether you used a promotional code and, if so, which that was.
We have designed our processes and procedures in line with ensuring that we use the minimum amount of personal data possible to deliver our services. First and last name is used to ensure that we address you politely and correctly, your email address is a requirement so we can deliver your receipt, licence details along with installation and activation instructions to you.
When it comes time to make a payment, Paddle (our payment services partner) will collect your card details and take the payment. Please note that during this transaction, you will be subject to Paddle’s standard terms and conditions.
Paddle will notify us whether or not the payment was successful by sending us the following data about the purchase and you as a purchaser at the conclusion of the payment transaction:
- The (discounted) price paid for this emuso product (applied only to the first payment on Subscriptions)
- Your full name
- Description of the product sold
- Your phone number
- Your email address
- 2 character country code
- Paddle’s transaction id for this purchase
- ‘Y’ means payment authorised. ‘C’ cancelled
- The time when the transaction occurred
- The amount authorised for payment
- The card type used
- The IP address that sent the payment
As an online internet business, UK law requires that we have at least two verifiable pieces of data that identify which country you are located in. This is why we ask for both your phone number and the country you live in. This allows us to satisfy requirements for accurately charging VAT (or sales tax) at the correct rate for where you live.
Please note that, by UK Law, we must keep these transaction details on file for a total period of six years for VAT tax audit purposes in the UK. Customer sales records kept for this purpose will be expunged or rendered anonymised after this period is elapsed.
iii. Completing a User Profile
As a company dedicated to music-teaching, MusicIncite Limited wants to ensure that its products are aimed squarely at the requirements of its users. We, therefore, ask users to voluntarily complete a short profile questionnaire. We will ask you for the following information so we can make sure that we are aligned with your musical aspirations and needs. The data we gather about you for this purpose is:-
What kind of musician are you? Select from: Student, Hobbyist, Semi-Pro, Professional, Teacher, Classroom Teacher.
Your age range: choose the range which best fits.
The instrument(s) that you play (or are learning to play).
The music genre(s) that you play.
Music genre(s) that you would like to learn to play.
How you heard of us.
By gathering this data, we can plan and prioritise emuso lesson developments to address the musical aims and aspirations of our users. This data is intended to highlight which popular music genres we should develop lessons for, what level to pitch lessons at, and which instruments to focus on.
By telling us where you are located, we can see whereabouts in the world our users are in number and make decisions about the effectiveness, by region, of our marketing and advertising efforts. This will help us to keep emuso delivering what our users really need from us.
We recognise that you provide such data to us on a purely voluntary basis. We will not share any of the information you give us with other users or with anyone outside of MusicIncite Limited unless specifically requested to do so by an appropriate lawful authority. The user profile information will be kept for as long as you decide. You can view, alter or delete this brief profile information at any time by logging in to emuso.buzz and navigating to the profile page.
- Registering your interest in receiving marketing and user surveys from us
During your purchase of emuso on our site, you may elect (via a checkbox) to receive marketing and user surveys from us. This relies on us adding your first and last names together with your email address, that you gave us during the buying transaction, to a list of marketing information recipients. Unsubscribe at any time using the link in the marketing email and your details will be immediately expunged from this list and you will cease to receive these emails from us.
- How long will Musicincite Limited keep my personal information?
- i. Newsletter registration
If you have registered with us to receive the newsletter we send out occasionally, we will hold your delivery data until you unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the newsletter or related email. This will remove you (and any relevant data) from the distribution list and you will stop receiving the newsletter or related email with immediate effect.
- Purchasing an emuso licence
In the UK, by law, we must keep records of individual sales for 6 years from the date of sale for VAT tax audit purposes. After this time records will be either deleted from our systems or anonymised.
iii. Completing a User Profile
When you complete a user profile we will keep that data for as long as you want us to. You may amend or delete this data at any time by logging in to emuso.buzz from your browser, navigating to the User Profile on the website and choosing the option to amend or delete your profile data.
- Registering your interest in receiving marketing and user surveys from us
We will only include you in the list of marketing information recipients as long as you want to continue receiving these. At any time, you can terminate marketing communications from us by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the marketing information email. This removes your name and email address from the list of marketing recipients with immediate effect.
5.6. How can Musicincite Limited use my personal information?
By Law, now we have to have a valid reason to use your personal information. Since the advent of the European GDPR, this is referred to as the “lawful basis for processing”. Sometimes we might ask your permission to do things, like when you subscribe to an email. Sometimes, when you’d reasonably expect us to use your personal information, we don’t ask your permission, but only when:
- the law says it’s fine to use it, and
- it fits with the rights you have
Note: We will never use robots to make decisions about you personally.
We use the information you give us for the following purposes:
- to deliver our services and to provide you with information about them
- to deal with your requests, complaints and enquiries
- to send out user surveys and marketing information
- to check if you’re using emuso and to keep the licensing database accurate and up to date
- to understand what developments and improvements our users want to see from us

We might contact you about things like:

- If you are a subscriber, sending you our newsletter
- To answer you when you’ve contacted us, or to respond to a comment or complaint
- If you are a subscriber, to send you marketing emails and/or user surveys concerning your experiences with using emuso.

We’ll only contact you when we need to or when you’ve given us permission.
We’ll never contact you to ask for your emuso account password. We’ll never contact you to ask about payment card details
5.8. Will I be contacted for marketing purposes?
We’ll only send you our Newsletter if you are a voluntary subscriber to the newsletter. This newsletter will advise of upcoming developments, new products or exciting new emuso lesson series as well as articles and content concerning the advanced uses of; or new features within, emuso along with occasional articles on aspects of music. You do not have to buy emuso in order to receive our newsletter.
When you purchase emuso via emuso.buzz, you will be asked (by clicking a checkbox) if you want to receive occasional marketing information from us which may from time to time, include a short survey asking how you are getting along with emuso. Simply put, we will use your answers to help us make improvements to our services.
Emuso is a brand-new concept in music teaching and we are super-keen to ensure that users are getting the most out of the experience of using it. We are planning to launch versions of the emuso product for other platforms than PC, so we would like to let people know when new products and services are going to be available on tablet and phone platforms. We will only do that if you have given us permission.
5.9. When does MusicIncite Ltd share my personal information with others?
We’ll never sell your personal information. We do share it with others in these ways:
- When you make something public on the emuso blog
- Like posting a comment to our blogging area which other users can see
- Sometimes, by law, we may be compelled to pass on your information to other organisations
- We might share your information if we have to, by law, or potentially when we need to protect you or other people from harm.
5.10. Can I delete my information?
This depends on what information you’re talking about.
- With respect to your emuso login account:
You can delete your account. Your account information is immediately deleted. Keep in mind:
- we keep a record of how you’ve used our services, but this information can’t be linked back to you,
- we also keep anything you’ve uploaded or commented on,
- you will no longer be able to log-in via emuso to access interactive content or the blog.
- What about other information you’ve shared with us?
We might have collected other personal information that you might ask to be deleted that has nothing to do with your emuso login account.
- i) For instance, the data you gave us when signing up for our periodic newsletter.
Simply click on the unsubscribe link at the footer of the email to remove your data from our newsletter recipient list and stop receiving the newsletter with immediate effect.
- ii) Your User profile information.
You may amend or delete this data at any time by logging in to emuso.buzz from your browser, navigating to the User Profile on the website and choosing the option to amend or delete your profile data
iii) Details we hold to send out marketing information or user surveys
Simply click on the unsubscribe link at the footer of the email to remove your data from our Marketing recipient list and stop receiving our marketing communications with immediate effect.
5.12. What are my rights?
Remember, you are in control of your personal information.
You have the right to:
- request a copy of your information. This is called the right of access. This right allows you to ask for full details of the personal information we hold on you. You’ll need to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) explaining the details of what you want. When we get back to you, we might need some identification to verify that you are who you say you are before sending you your data.
- not let robots make decisions about you personally
- to ask us to correct information that’s wrong, to delete it or to request that we only use it for certain purposes
- to change your mind and ask us to stop using your information. For example, unsubscribing from our newsletter or marketing emails.
Please note that sometimes we may not be able to help. For example, if the law tells us we can’t.

Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Website or on other websites.

- USE OF THE EMUSO BLOG FACILITY.
The emuso Blog is open to all emuso account owners. Because emuso users include families with children and minors, we want to ensure that users do not post profanities, Political, Religious, or indeed any potentially offensive material. This site is purely intended for music-related content and we ask all our users to help us to keep it that way. For this reason, we moderate the blog which means at busy times it may take some time for your blog post to show up on the website.
If you have a blog post blocked by us it is because you have violated these guidelines. Persistent abuse of the blogging facility will result in a permanent ban from the blog being imposed upon the user concerned. We reserve the right to determine what may or may not be posted to our site via the blog, solely to ourselves. MI Ltd will not enter into dialogue or correspondence of any kind regarding our assessment of your posts on our blog. By posting items to the emuso.buzz blog, you acknowledge that you waive all rights to the content posted and that MI Ltd may make such use of blog content as it sees fit.
MI Ltd reserves the sole right to edit any or all content posted to our blog.
- REFUND AND CANCELLATION POLICY
You acknowledge that, at the point when you download emuso software to your machine, you are aware that you waive your rights to cancel the transaction under the 14-day cooling-off period. Under our 14-day free trial, you are accepting the software and have those 14 days to cancel. The 14-day cooling off period, runs simultaneously, with the 14-day free trail.
If you do not give your consent to waive the 14-day cooling-off period, then the 14-day cooling-off period still applies, but you will not be able to download your copy of emuso/studio or content until this period has ended.
If the software is faulty, then you should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org giving the details of your purchase from your payment receipt, the transaction id, date and time. Please also include as much descriptive detail as possible on the fault you are experiencing. It is particularly important that you identify your operating system and correct version number. Once we have been able to replicate and have assessed the problem, we will advise you when to expect a fix to be produced to address the issue. Note that only if we cannot fix your issue, will you be offered a refund.
Please be aware that you are buying emuso at the Version 1.0 stage of development and while the software has undergone considerable beta testing and is stable, it is likely to have some minor improvements remaining. If a bug occurs it should be reported to MI ltd via email at email@example.com. We will advise emuso-users when releases will be made available with fixes for these bugs.
In recognition of our launch of Version 1.0 of the emuso software, our (discounted) introductory purchase price includes all point releases from version 1.0 up to version 2.0. This special offer will come to an end once emuso version 2.0 is released. If you are on our Subscription model, you will receive all updates and support while you are a subscriber.
