Registration and Eligibility as a Broadcaster.
1. Account. You may access the portions of the Service directed to you as a Broadcaster and that may be unavailable to the public, in general. You will need to register an account with MoreBass as Broadcaster (“Broadcaster Account” or “Account”). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your log-in credentials in order to use the Service, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur through the use of your credentials. You agree to notify MoreBass immediately of any unauthorized use of your log-in credentials or any other breach of security with respect to your account. MoreBass will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your credentials prior to you notifying MoreBass of such unauthorized use or loss of your credentials.
2. You agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as requested in any registration forms and to update the information about yourself promptly, and as necessary, to keep it current and accurate.
Account Fees and Payment Terms.
1. By registering for a Broadcaster account, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the payment terms set forth herein (the “Payment Terms”), as may be amended by MoreBass from time to time at our discretion. We accept various forms of payment, as set forth on the Site from time to time. We do not accept cash or checks. Payments are processed by our third party payment processor(s).
2. The day when you register for and purchase or activate your Broadcaster Account “Activation Date”) is the first day of your billing cycle. By providing your payment method and obtaining a Broadcaster Account, you authorize our payment processor to charge to your designated payment method the applicable monthly or annually recurring account fees, and any applicable sales, telecommunication, excise, valued-added or similar taxes (“Account Fee”). The Account Fee is exclusive of any applicable federal, state, provincial, VAT or municipal taxes or duties.
3. Unless you notify us of your decision to terminate your Broadcaster Account, your Account will automatically renew at the end of each Account term at the then-current Account Fee. A renewed Account will have the same term as the immediately preceding Account. At the time of renewal, your payment method will be charged the current Account Fee.
4. Your payment method will be charged for the renewal term of your Broadcaster Account on your billing date (“Billing Date”) (e.g., on a particular date each month for a monthly Account). If, however, the Activation Date of your Subscription is on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and your Billing Date does not exist in a particular month because there are fewer than thirty-one (31) days in the month payment is due, then your Billing Date for that particular renewal will be on the last day of the month in which your Billing Date would otherwise be. The Account Fee is payable in U.S. Dollars only.
5. If you fail to pay the applicable Account Fee when due, then your account may be downgraded, suspended or cancelled, at MoreBass’ sole discretion. If your account is suspended, then MoreBass may, but is not obligated to, maintain your account and/or related Station Content and information, in order to allow you to pay the past-due charges and restore your account. If the charges are not paid, then your account may be cancelled.
6. You may cancel your Broadcaster Account at any time for any or no reason. If you cancel your Account, then you will have access to the full Service until the date that would have been your next Billing Date. To cancel an ongoing Account, please contact us at support@MoreBass.com. Once you have cancelled your Account, we will stop billing your applicable payment method.
7. We reserve the right to change MoreBass’ Account Fee at any time in our sole discretion. Your continued use of your Broadcaster Account after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount.

NOTWITHSTANDING THE PRECEDING SENTENCES OF THIS SECTION, IF YOU REMOVE ANY OF YOUR USER CONTENT USING FUNCTIONALITIES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, THEN YOU AGREE TO, AND HEREBY DO GRANT, MOREBASS A PERPETUAL AND IRREVOCABLE LICENSE TO USE ANY BACKUP COPIES OF YOUR USER CONTENT THAT MOREBASS MADE PRIOR TO YOUR REMOVAL OF YOUR USER CONTENT AND IN THE ORDINARY COURSE OF BUSINESS. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, THE RIGHTS GRANTED IN THE PRECEDING SENTENCES OF THIS SECTION INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE RIGHT TO REPRODUCE SOUND RECORDINGS (AND MAKE MECHANICAL REPRODUCTIONS OF THE MUSICAL WORKS EMBODIED IN SUCH SOUND RECORDINGS), AND PUBLICLY PERFORM SOUND RECORDINGS (AND THE MUSICAL WORKS EMBODIED THEREIN), ALL ON A ROYALTY-FREE BASIS.

MOREBASS IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY MOBILE CARRIER, RADIO STATION OR OTHER THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER, AND ANY DISPUTE YOU HAVE WITH ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY OTHER USER OF THE SERVICE, IS DIRECTLY BETWEEN YOU AND SUCH THIRD PARTY, AND YOU IRREVOCABLY RELEASE MOREBASS (AND OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, JOINT VENTURES, EMPLOYEES, SUCCESSORS, AND ASSIGNS) FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES.
Dispute Resolution.
1. YOU AND MOREBASS AND EACH OF OUR RESPECTIVE CORPORATE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, PREDECESSORS IN INTEREST, SUCCESSORS, PERMITTED ASSIGNS, AND ANY OTHER PARTIES ON WHOSE BEHALF YOU ARE ACCESSING THE SERVICE AGREE TO ARBITRATION, AS THE EXCLUSIVE FORM OF DISPUTE RESOLUTION EXCEPT AS PROVIDED FOR BELOW, FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICE.
2. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
2.1. Commencing Arbitration. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of intent to arbitrate (a “Notice”), or, if you do not provide a mailing address to MoreBass, to you via any other method available to MoreBass, including via e-mail. The Notice to MoreBass should be addressed to MoreBass Inc.. at 10115 E Bell Rd, Ste 107,454. Scottsdale, AZ 85260 (the “Arbitration Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (the “Demand”). If you and MoreBass do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 90 days after the Notice is received, then you or MoreBass may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth below or file a claim in small claims court.
2.2. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (“AAA”) IN ACCORDANCE WITH ITS COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION RULES AND THE SUPPLEMENTARY PROCEDURES FOR CONSUMER RELATED DISPUTES (THE “Rules”), AS MODIFIED BY THIS AGREEMENT. The Rules and AAA forms are available online at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee to commence an arbitration against MoreBass, then MoreBass will promptly reimburse you for your confirmed payment of the filing fee upon MoreBass’ receipt of Notice at the Arbitration Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration along with a receipt evidencing payment of the filing fee, unless your Demand is equal to or greater than $1,000 or was filed in bad faith, in which case you are solely responsible for the payment of the filing fee.
2.3. Arbitration Proceeding. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language. A single independent and impartial arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the Rules, as modified herein. You and MoreBass agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens on the parties:
2.3.1. the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration;
2.3.2. the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and
2.3.3. any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
2.3.4. No Class Actions. YOU AND MOREBASS AGREE THAT YOU AND MOREBASS 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, YOU AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE PROCEEDINGS OF MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND THAT IF THIS SPECIFIC PROVISO IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF THIS MANDATORY ARBITRATION SECTION WILL BE NULL AND VOID.
2.3.5. Decision of the Arbitrator. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 180 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will include a statement setting forth the reasons for the disposition of any claim. The arbitrator will apply the laws of the State of California in conducting the arbitration. You acknowledge that these terms and your use of the Service evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. The United States Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to the Mandatory Arbitration clause in this AGREEMENT.
3. Equitable Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Dispute Resolution section do not apply to any claim in which either party seeks equitable relief to protect such party’s copyrights, trademarks, or patents. You acknowledge that, in the event of a breach of the AGREEMENT by MoreBass or any third party, the damage or harm, if any, caused to you will not entitle you to seek injunctive or other equitable relief against MoreBass, and your only remedy will be for monetary damages, subject to the limitations of liability set forth in the AGREEMENT.
4. Claims. You and MoreBass agree that, notwithstanding any other rights the party may have under law or equity, any cause of action arising out of or related to this AGREEMENT or the Service, excluding a claim for indemnification, must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
4.1. Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against MoreBass must be resolved in accordance with this Dispute Resolution section. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Dispute Resolution section will be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Dispute Resolution section, MoreBass may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $8,000, provided that MoreBass has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
5. Modifications. In the event that MoreBass makes any future change to the Mandatory Arbitration provision (other than a change to MoreBass’ Arbitration Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to MoreBass’ Arbitration Notice Address, in which case your account with MoreBass and your license to use the Service will terminate immediately, and this Dispute Resolution provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive the termination of the AGREEMENT.
6. Enforceability. If the entirety of this Section 14, or any part of it, is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 14 will be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 15 will govern any action arising out of or related to this AGREEMENT.
Governing Law. The laws of the State of Arizona, (USA), excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern this AGREEMENT and your use of the Service. Your use of the Service may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws. To the extent that any action relating to any dispute hereunder is permitted to be brought in a court of law, such action will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Maricopa County, Arizona, and you hereby irrevocably submit to personal jurisdiction in such courts, and waive any defense of inconvenient forum. PLEASE NOTE THAT BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT, WHICH IS AUTOMATIC BY YOUR USE OF THIS SITE, YOU ARE WAIVING CLAIMS THAT YOU MIGHT OTHERWISE HAVE AGAINST US BASED ON THE LAWS OF OTHER JURISDICTIONS, INCLUDING YOUR OWN.
Assignment. You may not assign this AGREEMENT or any of the rights or licenses granted hereunder, directly or indirectly, without the prior written consent of MoreBass. This means that in the event you dispose of any device on which you have installed the Service, such as by sale or gift, you are responsible for deleting the Service from your mobile device prior to such disposition. MoreBass may assign this AGREEMENT, including all its rights hereunder, without restriction. Any assignment in violation of this Section is void.
