If You do not agree to all of the terms of this Agreement, You are not authorized to use the Program and must stop installing it or uninstall it, as applicable.

We may change this Agreement from time to time by notifying You of the changes by any reasonable means, including by posting a revised Agreement through the Program (such as adding a statement to the log-in screen or sending You an email notification) or on AlphaTheta’s website. No such change will apply to any dispute between You and us arising before we notified You of the change. Your use of the Program after any changes to this Agreement will constitute Your acceptance of the changes. The “Last Updated” legend above indicates when this Agreement was last changed. We may, at any time and without liability, modify or discontinue all or part of the Program; charge, modify or waive any fees required to use the Program; or offer opportunities to some or all users.

In no event will the AlphaTheta Entities’ liability exceed the amounts actually paid by You to AlphaTheta for the Program. The parties acknowledge that the liability limits and risk allocation in this Agreement are reflected in the Program price and are essential elements of the bargain between the parties, without which AlphaTheta would not have provided the Program or entered into this Agreement.

9. Damages and remedies for breach

You agree that any breach of this Agreement’s restrictions would cause AlphaTheta irreparable harm for which money damages alone would be inadequate. In addition to damages and any other remedies to which AlphaTheta may be entitled, You agree that AlphaTheta may seek injunctive relief to prevent the actual, threatened or continued breach of this Agreement.

10. Termination

This Agreement is effective until terminated. AlphaTheta may terminate or suspend Your use of the Program at any time and without prior notice, for any or no reason, including if AlphaTheta believes that You have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement. Upon any such termination or suspension, Your right to use the Program and Documentation will immediately cease, and AlphaTheta may, without liability to You or any third party, suspend, or discontinue (temporarily or permanently) some or all of the Program (including any available Program Content) and/or immediately deactivate or delete Your account, if any, and all associated materials (including Your Content), without any obligation to provide any further access to such materials. If this Agreement is terminated, You will stop using the Program, permanently delete it from Your computer or mobile device where it resides, and destroy all copies of the Program and Documentation in Your possession, confirming to AlphaTheta in writing that You have done. Sections 1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 3-11 will continue in effect after this Agreement’s termination.

11. General terms

11.1      Severability and Waiver. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the extent possible or, if incapable of enforcement, deemed to be severed and deleted from this Agreement, and the remainder will continue in full force and effect. The waiver by either party of any default or breach of this Agreement will not waive any other or subsequent default or breach.

11.2      No Assignment. You may not assign, sell, transfer, delegate or otherwise dispose of this Agreement or any rights or obligations under it, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, without AlphaTheta’s prior written consent.

Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and assigns.

11.3      Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, whether written or oral, concerning its subject matter. This Agreement may not be modified or amended without AlphaTheta’s prior and express written consent, and no other act, document, usage or custom will be deemed to amend or modify this Agreement.

11.4      You agree that this Agreement shall be governed and construed by and under the laws of Japan.

If You are a UK or EEA consumer the following wording applies in place of the foregoing Section 11.4:

The laws and courts of Your country of residence will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement.

12. Arbitration; Waiver of Jury Trial (this Section does not apply to UK or EU consumers)

12.1      Arbitration. To the extent permitted under applicable law, in the interest of resolving disputes between You and AlphaTheta in the most expedient and cost effective manner, You and AlphaTheta agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of this Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of this Agreement. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND ALPHATHETA ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, UNLESS SUCH WAIVER IS INVALID UNDER APPLICABLE LAW. YOU AND ALPHATHETA AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and AlphaTheta agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Any claim that all or part of this class action waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.


  • Any arbitration between You and AlphaTheta will be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting AlphaTheta.
  • Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for You, by electronic mail (“Notice”). AlphaTheta’s address for Notice is: AlphaTheta Music Americas, Inc. 2050 W 190th Street, Suite #109, Torrance, California 90504 Attention: VP of Operations
  • The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, You or AlphaTheta may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by You or AlphaTheta shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. In the event our dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in Your favor, AlphaTheta shall pay You (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any, (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by AlphaTheta in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $10.00, whichever is greater.
  • In the event that You commence arbitration in accordance with this Agreement, AlphaTheta will reimburse You for Your payment of the filing fee, unless Your claim is for greater than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees shall be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Los Angeles County, California, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 or less, You may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of Your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of Your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, You agree to reimburse AlphaTheta for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise Your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
  • In the event that AlphaTheta makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to AlphaTheta’s address for Notice), You may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to AlphaTheta’s address for Notice, in which case Your account shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments You reject shall survive. (iii) If You are a resident of Japan or of another country outside of the EU or the United States: Any claims by us, or claims by You, arising out of, relating to, or connected with this Agreement shall be finally settled by arbitration in Tokyo, Japan, in accordance with the rules of the Japan Commercial Arbitration Association. The award of arbitration shall be final and binding upon both parties and shall have the reasoning therein.

12.3      Exceptions. There are only the following exceptions to this arbitration agreement.

(i) First, if we reasonably believe that You have in any manner violated or threatened to infringe the intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.

(ii) Second, if You are a resident of the United States, any dispute arising from, related to, or connected with this Agreement may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in Los Angeles County, California, provided that all claims by all parties in the dispute fall within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. In addition, either of us may pursue enforcement actions through applicable U.S. federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available.

13. Language

This Agreement is made in English and translated into other languages. The English text is the original and the other languages’ text is for reference purposes. If there is any conflict or inconsistency among those texts, the English text shall prevail.
