Furthermore, from now on you agree to have all the necessary rights to exploit your Content through the platform and, therefore, to grant us the administration of your Content per the terms described in Section 6. This right and permission is granted exclusively for those Digital Music Services in which you choose to make your Content available through our services; this means that if you use the Service to make your Content available on a specific Digital Music Service, you may not make the same Content available on the same Digital Music Service using a service other than our Service and Platform.






By registering and uploading your Content to the Platform, you accept the following obligations:


  • You must use the Platform diligently and upload information and Content whose rights belong to you or for whose commercial exploitation you are authorized by the owner of these rights.


  • You must provide all information requested by us while using the Service.


  • You must inform us of any activity that is incompatible with these Terms of Use.


  • You must indicate through the Platform if your material contains “explicit” content. The term “explicit” refers to Content that evokes sexual, racist, violent or other connotations.


  • You must not engage in any illegal activities through the Platform or Services, or take any action that may harm any party, including us.


You agree to use the Platform diligently and, therefore:


  • Do not grant access to the Platform to any third party.

  • Do not use the information, rules or instructions contained in the Platform for purposes other than those set out in these Terms of Use.

This includes any derivative works and translating, disassembling, recompiling, altering, destroying or reverse engineering the Platform or attempting to do so. Do not circumvent the technological protection measures incorporated in the Platform.


In general, you agree to use the Platform in a lawful and diligent manner, and you will not do anything prohibited in these Terms of Use. You shall be liable to us in respect of any breach of these Terms of Use, as described in Section 9.






After registration, you can upload your Content (including sound recordings and audiovisual works, photographs, images and related content) to your personal account, for subsequent Digital Distribution.


You may only upload Content to the Platform that you own or for whose commercial exploitation you have written permission from the rights holders, and you may not upload any Content for which the rights are held by third parties. We may ask you at any time to provide us with all necessary documents, contracts and registration certificates to confirm that you own the rights to your Content (in principle this will not be necessary) and we may also remove any of your Content from the Platform if we are convinced that it does not legally belong to you.


As specified above, you may not, under any circumstances, upload or post Content that is threatening, illegal, confidential, defamatory, harassing, obscene, indecent, or fraudulent, that infringes privacy rights, incites hatred, or includes text of a racist, sexist, or other nature, that opposes, impedes, or limits any individual in any way, or that exposes us or any third party to any harm and/or liability of any kind.


You may not upload any private or false information of any third party, including but not limited to mailing addresses, email addresses and phone numbers.


You are not allowed to upload content that may infringe copyright law or the ownership of third party trademarks.


As specified above, you are free to exploit your content, directly or through third parties, with Digital Music Services that are not selected or available on the Platform.


We reserve the right to access and analyse all or part of your Content to ensure compliance with the law and these terms of use. We also reserve the right to delete uploaded files, data or information if we believe that they do not comply with these Terms of Use, or if we believe that they are not suitable or appropriate for the Platform or the Service.


Finally, for clarification purposes, these Terms of Use do not establish any obligation to upload a minimum amount of content.






At Beatclap, we do not add any additional cost and we assume all the expenses of reviewing, uploading, broadcasting, promotion, positioning, storage, hosting and any other cost generated by the distribution of your music.


You will receive 80.00% of the net profits (deducting expenses and taxes) that we will receive from the Digital Music Services for the exploitation of your content.


We will provide you with the corresponding invoices and receipts, including mandatory taxes, in accordance with applicable regulations.


The sales commission percentage and the payment threshold are available on the Platform, in the “My Account” section.


All payments and associated claims: (I) will be made through the corresponding “Collect” section of the Platform; (II) will be made in the currency we indicate; and (III) will be paid through PayPal or by bank transfer to the account you indicate. If any authority imposes a tax, lien or levy on you, you agree to pay that amount or to provide us with the documentation necessary to verify an exemption.


Payment for sales generated under these Terms of Use will be made on a semi-annual basis, provided that the corresponding amount exceeds the minimum payment threshold for the requested payment.


However, you authorize us to withhold any payment for an additional period of twenty-four (24) months if such payment contains income that is wholly or partially generated by fraud or in violation of these Terms of Use or the Anti-Fraud Policy. Any payment you receive from us will be subject to all applicable taxes (including VAT, withheld taxes, etc.).


Payment of an invoice shall not prevent us from later disputing the amounts billed in accordance with the rights contained herein. We may recover amounts you owe us by withholding any future payment due and by notifying you of such action.


If a Digital Music Service deducts any amount relating to any past contingency, overpayment or commission in connection with your Content, or an investigation by us reasonably demonstrates that any of your earnings for any prior month should have been less, we may, at the conclusion of such investigation and at our sole discretion, provide a revised sales report for the applicable month(s) and deduct the corresponding amount from future payments, which you acknowledge and agree to.


Therefore, you expressly and irrevocably authorize us to collect all revenues from the exploitation of your Content through the Platform, including, but not limited to, copyright, performance and recording rights, rights relating to the phonographic producer, any taxes established by law for private copies, or for any other concept, without limitation. For this purpose, we may ask you to sign a specific authorization letter requested by the relevant performing rights organization, which you agree to provide us with as soon as you are requested to do so.


Through the platform, the User may collect the royalties generated during the 6-month periods indicated by Beatclap. If the amount of royalties generated is not more than 25€, it cannot be collected, and will roll-over to the subsequent collection period.


We will provide you with the corresponding invoices and receipts, including mandatory taxes, in accordance with applicable regulations.


We reserve the right to change the price of the service, the percentage of the sales commission or the minimum payment threshold in the future, in which case the new terms will be notified to you no less than thirty (30) days prior to the effective date and will be applicable to future earnings.






The duration of our contractual relationship is undetermined. It will begin when you register on the Platform and under the explicit acceptance of these Terms of Use, and both you and we may choose to terminate the service at any time by giving notice, in accordance with these Terms of Use, of 30 days from the date of the notice of expiry/termination.


Before requesting termination, you must remove the Content of the DMS using the “Remove” functionality that is available within the Platform. In addition, in the event of termination, you authorize us to suspend your account, block access to it and delete all files and information uploaded to the Platform. Termination will not affect the parties’ rights and obligations accrued up to the date of termination.


Additionally, we can terminate our relationship and the Service, provided the following:


  • In the event of a breach of any term or condition set out by us (here or in any other document you have accepted), such breach not being remedied within five (5) days from the date of our notification.


  • You become the subject of any legal proceeding relating to your liquidation or insolvency (whether voluntary or involuntary) that is not dismissed within sixty (60) calendar days.


  • You infringe our Intellectual Property Rights.


  • You violate our Anti-Fraud Policy.


  • You commit any illegal activity using the platform or the Service.


We shall not be liable to you for any damages of any kind whatsoever due to the termination of our relationship in accordance with these Terms of Use. Our respective rights and obligations contained in sections that by their nature are intended to remain in effect, will remain in effect beyond the termination of this relationship.


Regardless of the termination of the service, you and we agree to maintain in effect the contracts signed by us with third parties prior to receiving notice of termination, if the contracts with such third parties remain in effect.






Nothing contained in this document shall be construed as conferring any right of ownership in the Platform or any part thereof; therefore, we do not grant you by these Terms of Use the right to exploit our intellectual property rights (including, but not limited to, copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, confidential and proprietary information). All of these rights are expressly reserved by us and, as a result, we will retain all proprietary rights over the Platform, our trademarks, technology, etc., together with all copies of all or part of them.


When you upload any of your Content to our servers through the Platform, you recognize the following:


  • That we are authorized to manage, directly or through third parties, your content (including recordings, videos, compositions, covers, etc.) through Digital Music Services, worldwide and for the duration of our relationship.


  • That you own and/or control all rights in and in reference to your content and/or have the right and legal capacity to upload your content and exploit it commercially.


  • That your content does not infringe the copyright or any other rights of third parties.


  • That we are authorized for the duration of this contract to grant synchronisation licenses for your Content to third parties worldwide.


If any of your Content uses a so-called “copyleft license” and that content was created or developed by a person (including artists and producers) who is not associated with any rights management society (such as, but not limited to, SACEM in France, MCPS in the UK, SGAE in Spain, GEMA in Germany, etc.) in any country in the world, you authorise us to claim on your behalf, where applicable, from the rights management society of each country, any royalties, liens, fees, etc. paid by the Digital Music Services in respect of such content.


You must indicate through the Platform the name of the record label (associated with the phonographic producer, who in turn is associated with any Collective Management Society (CMO), such as SCPP in France, PPL in the United Kingdom, AGEDI in Spain, CAPIF in Argentina, etc.) for each release or phonogram you intend to distribute in any country in the world using the Platform. On the other hand, if any of your Content is distributed using any “Public Label Name” available on the Platform, you accept, in accordance with the stipulations:


  • That you authorise and facilitate the transmission by you and the acquisition by us of the following rights: copyrights and public communication rights of the Contents (sound recordings or music videos) distributed using the Platform.


  • That you authorise us to claim on your behalf, where appropriate, before the Collective Management Society (CMO) of each country, any rights, liens, obligations, etc. which they have collected in respect of such content.

The User affirms that he or she holds the copyright of the images and videos uploaded to the platform.


The User only authorises the use — capture, reproduction and dissemination — of the mentioned images, or parts of them, within the limits established in this clause.

We work very hard and invest large amounts of resources to avoid automatic and fraudulent uses of our Service. For this reason, we have created a specific anti-fraud policy, which is available in the “Legal” section of your account. When you accept these Terms of Use, you also acknowledge and agree to our anti-fraud policy and therefore agree, among other commitments, that you will not authorize any third party to directly or indirectly generate fraudulent or invalid automatic play actions, especially on the Digital Music Services.


In this anti-fraud policy, we have implemented a 3-Strikes policy; therefore, please read the policy carefully, as we will be very strict in applying it.
