When you upload content to the Platform you understand and agree that it will be made available to other users of the Platform, and those users will be able to view or listen to your content and share it with other users.

Accessing content
You may view publicly available parts of our Platform for free. If you have registered with us you may also view and download certain paid content. Where we inform you so in advance, we may charge you for the viewing and downloading of paid content.
On our Platform, we allow users to upload, store and make available to others their content, as well as general posts and comments. We do not review or approve such content, nor actively monitor it. You acknowledge that such content does not present our views and we do not endorse it.
Web Monetization
We use “Web Monetization” in certain areas of our Platform. Web Monetization is a mechanism that allows us to collect micro payments for the time you spend consuming the content or receiving services from us. It allows you, if you are consumer of content, to find new and interesting content, safe in the knowledge that the creators are being paid fairly for their work. If you are a content creator then the Platform allows you to share and monetise your content.
The terms in this section apply in addition to any other terms set out in this document where we make available to you paid content, and take precedence over any conflicting terms.
When charging and collecting fees for paid content we may engage certain third-party payment providers, who may require you to set up a user account with a positive cash balance. In particular, we may use the payment services of Coil Technologies, Inc. and require you to open a Coil account and create a sufficient cash balance before we grant you access to any paid content. If you use Coil need to collect payments you need to comply with Coil’s rules.
By clicking a button indicating your agreement to purchase access to certain paid content you agree that you may be charged the indicated fee. We may do so by making the relevant deduction from your Coil balance. You acknowledge that we may further distribute the payment received from you, including by retaining it or paying any portion of it to the relevant content provider.
We may charge different fees depending on how we make content and services available to you. For example, different fees may apply in relation to streamed as opposed to downloaded content or to service provisions. The relevant fee will be displayed on the Platform. By placing your order you agree and accept that we may charge you the relevant fee.
Monetizing your content
If you are uploading content to the Platform you can decide if some or all of that content is paid for content, or is available for free. You can provide some content for free, or you can charge for all content.
In order to monetize your content you must have a valid Coil account and fulfil any requirements from Coil necessary to receive funds. If you do not have a valid Coil account, or you have not fulfilled any of Coil’s requirements to receive funds from Coil, then any revenue generated from your paid for content will be forfeited. We reserve the right to suspend payment of streaming revenue if you fail to comply with our terms.
Any payment made to you will based on the access rate multiplied by the number of seconds your content was accessed for, giving the gross streaming revenue. The gross streaming revenue will be subject to certain deductions including refunds, processing costs, third party charges, payments to rights holders or deductions relation to content that is in violation of our terms. In addition, we will also deduct any Platform fee we notify you of from the gross streaming revenue.
We are not responsible for any issues you may have with Coil, or any other third party involved in the payment process. Any issues you encounter in receiving payments, once they have been correctly calculated, are between you and Coil or the relevant third party.
You are responsible for calculating, and account to the relevant authorities, any tax due on any revenue you receive form the Platform. We do not collect, withhold, or forward any tax payments on your behalf.
Your legal rights
When you agree to pay for the paid for content, you will be able to access that paid for content immediately and that you acknowledge that this means you lose your right to cancel. You do not have the right to cancel your access once the automatic streaming of the digital content starts and are not entitled to a refund unless the digital content is faulty. You can stop streaming content at any time, and when you stop streaming, you stop paying.
If the digital content we make available is faulty, you are entitled for it to be fixed and if we cannot do this we will return some or all of your money.
If you receive a service we will repeat the service or if this is not possible return some or all of your money.
