Dynamic Media Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) of Company shall govern and apply to the sale by Company of any players, music, content or other products of Company to Customer and shall be made a part of and incorporated into any service agreement, order, order form, electronic order, purchase order, order acknowledgement, invoice, agreement or contract (each of the foregoing, together with these Terms and Conditions, the “Agreement”).
Music Services. Company shall provide to Customer an on-site library of music and other content (the “Provided Music”) and shall provide refreshment of such content for each Customer location (the “Music Services”) pursuant to the Agreement. Some programming and/or channels available through the Music Services may include explicit language, which may not be appropriate for Customer’s patrons. It is Customer’s responsibility to impose listening restrictions that Customer considers appropriate for its environment. The Music Services may be unavailable or interrupted from time to time for a variety of reasons, such as environmental or topographic conditions and/or other things Company cannot control. The Music Services might also not be available in certain places (e.g., in tunnels, parking garages, or within or next to buildings) or near other technologies. Company is not responsible for any noise and/or interruptions of the Music Services.
Player. Company agrees to sell and Customer agrees to purchase a playback device (the “Player”) per Customer location pursuant to the Agreement. The computer software residing on the Player (the “Player Software”) is protected by copyright laws and is licensed, not sold, to Customer for the term of the Agreement. Customer may not copy, assign or transfer (by operation of law or otherwise) the Player Software to any other party. In no event shall Customer reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Player Software or use the Player Software for any purpose other than to play the Provided Music at Customer locations set forth in the Agreement. Customer acknowledges that Company’s licensor owns all right, title and interest in the programming of the song selections, or “compilations,” provided to Customer locations, and that the copyright for such compilations belongs exclusively to Company’s licensor.
Player Warranty. For the one (1) year period following Customer’s receipt of a new Player at a Customer location (the “Warranty Period”), Company shall repair or replace a defective Player at no additional charge to Customer (excluding any shipping charges related thereto), provided that the defect is not as a direct or indirect result of Customer’s improper or out of the ordinary use of the Player. In order to receive the repair or replacement of a defective Player, contact the Dynamic Media Business Loyalty Team at 586-978-4214. If Company chooses to replace a defective Player, the defective Player must be shipped to Company at Customer’s expense within thirty days of receiving a new Player. Failure to return the defective Player within thirty days will result in Customer being charged for the new Player. After the Warranty Period, Customer shall be responsible for any costs associated with repair (including any component replacement and shipping charges) of the Player. If Customer requests Company to arrange an on-site installation or service visit related to a Player component or to the sound system located at any Customer location, Customer agrees to pay the cost of any such visit, even if such a visit is merely diagnostic in nature or occurs during the Warranty Period. Any Player or equipment sold by Company may be covered by specific warranties extended by the manufacturer of said Player or equipment, but such manufacturer’s warranties are excluded from and not a part of the foregoing warranty.
DISCLAIMER; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: THE WARRANTY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 4 ONLY APPLIES TO THE PURCHASE OF A NEW PLAYER AND DOES NOT APPLY TO THE PURCHASE OF USED OR REFURBISHED PLAYERS, IS GIVEN SOLELY TO CUSTOMER AND IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. COMPANY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL COMPANY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFIT, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PLAYERS OR MUSIC SERVICES, EVEN IF CUSTOMER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ADDITION, WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, COMPANY’S LIABILITY FOR THE PLAYER SHALL BE LIMITED TO REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE PLAYER, AND ANY DAMAGES SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE CHARGES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO COMPANY WITHIN THE TWELVE MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE SPECIFIC EVENT THAT GAVE RISE TO THE DAMAGE. COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANTY COMPATIBILITY OF ANY PLAYER OR EQUIPMENT SOLD BY COMPANY WITH ANY OTHER EQUIPMENT PROVIDED BY A THIRD PARTY.
Shipment, Delivery, Inspection. All shipments are F.O.B. Sterling Heights, MI. The risk of loss or damage to the Products in transit shall fall upon the Customer, whose responsibility it shall be to file claims with the carrier and/or the insurance company.
Restrictions. Customer shall use the Player only to provide foreground or background music at the Customer locations listed in the Agreement and shall not amplify, transmit or re-transmit the broadcast of Provided Music so as to be audible outside any such premises (beyond ordinary patio or other outdoor speaker usage, which is permissible), nor transmit Provided Music outside any such premises. Customer shall not, without the prior written consent of Company, (i) use Provided Music in conjunction with any advertising or commercial message or entertainment or other public event at a Customer location for which Customer or any other person receives consideration of any kind (ii) use Provided Music at the premises listed herein for any customer location for which an admission fee is charged or (iii) transmit, re-transmit, alter, record or reproduce (or permit the transmission, re-transmission, alteration, recording or reproduction of) any Provided Music other than as expressly permitted under this Agreement. The Player(s) and/or Provided Music shall not be removed from the premises of any Customer location without the prior written consent of Company.
Default; Remedy. If Customer breaches the Agreement for any reason, Company in its sole discretion, and in addition to its other remedies, may terminate this Agreement and withhold any further distribution of additional Provided Music. Customer shall reimburse Company for costs and expenses incurred in connection with Company’s exercise of its rights under this Agreement, including without limitation its costs of collection and reasonable attorneys’ fees. Customer acknowledges and agrees that, if at any time Customer is late in its payments due to Company, Company may withhold distribution of Provided Music to the Customer locations until such time as Customer pays the balance of payments due and owing to Company. In such event, where Company exercises its right to withhold Provided Music to the store locations as a result of Customer being late in its payments to Company, Customer acknowledges and agrees that (1) the full and regular monthly music/content service fees shall continue to accrue with respect to such store locations notwithstanding the fact Provided Music are being withheld, and (2) Company will not be obligated to send retroactive Provided Music once Customer pays the balance of payments due and owing to Company.
Purchase Order Fulfillment. IN NO EVENT SHALL A CUSTOMER INVOICE, PURCHASE ORDER OR OTHER CUSTOMER ORDER DOCUMENT (EACH, A “CUSTOMER PO”) MODIFY ANY OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Customer guarantees and warrants that they are the legal cardholder for this credit card and that they are legally authorized to enter into this one time or recurring billing agreement with Dynamic Media.
Termination. Customer may terminate its subscription of Music Services at any Customer location upon providing thirty days written notice to Company.

Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, Customer shall cease using the Music Services, and at such time Company shall not be responsible for any copyright royalties related to the playback of music in Customer’s locations thereafter.
