Copyright House Limited - Terms & Conditions
1. The Company
i. Copyright House claims no ownership, intellectual property rights, or any other rights over your submitted material. By registering for an account, you will be able to upload your creative materials. You will receive a date and time proof of the existence of your copyrighted work in order to help you prove that you are the creator of the work in case of infringement.
ii. All reasonable care will be taken over copyrighted works sent to us. These will be encrypted and securely stored in different geographical locations to ensure the safety of your work and proof of copyright.
iii. Copyright House may make any changes to promotional literature about its services, that it believes necessary to correct errors or omissions, without any liability to the client.
iv. Copyright House may make duplicates of registered works to be encrypted and stored in the strong room of a solicitor's office and a secure bank vault in the UK. All duplicates will be treated as highly confidential.
v. Copyright House reserves the right to vary membership fees from time to time. However, any such changes made will not be applied to membership fees that have already been paid.
vi. Copyright House will adhere to its 'price freeze' policy whereby renewable membership fees will remain at the price paid when a member first signed up, irrespective of any future membership fee changes.
vii. Any information supplied to Copyright House will be treated as confidential. However, Copyright House is not responsible for the confidentiality of any information that is already in the public domain or becomes available to the public in the future.
viii. Copyright House will not be liable for any loss, damage or costs that may arise from a fault of a member such as illegibility or inaccuracy of supplied information or client-side computer errors affecting uploads.
ix. Should any delay or failure of services provided by Copyright House occur that are beyond the company's control, Copyright House will not be deemed liable or in breach of contract.
x. Copyright House offers an independent third-party proof of copyright. Should an infringement occur, Copyright House can provide evidence of copyright ownership and a free affidavit, but legal fees and proving copyright ownership in a court of law remain the responsibility of the member.
xi. Copyright House may make any changes to its services, that do not affect its provided services, in order to comply with any statutory requirements or safety issues, without notifying its members.
xii. If Copyright House stops trading, our existing client-base will be handed over to another reputable company. All existing memberships will be honoured, all submitted works will continue to be protected, new works may be submitted for copyright protection and affidavits will be issued, if needed.
i. In order to become a user, you will be asked to select a unique username and password and will provide other personal details, including your email address. Copyright House will not share your personal information, including your email address, with others.
ii. You agree not to impersonate another person or give us somebody else's details. You also agree to keep your username and password secure and not to reveal them to anyone else.
iii. You agree not to register work which is the intellectual property of someone else. You affirm that you are the creator of the work for which you register copyright. You should be aware that you can only register works that come under the category of copyright, i.e. not trade marks or patents. It is your responsibility to check the category that your work falls into. If you are in any doubt about this, then we advise you to consult a legal professional, or contact the Intellectual Property Office in your country. Copyright House is not responsible for checking this.
iv. Your membership will be valid for the period paid for. If you cancel your account, or if you fail to renew your subscription, your account will be suspended. After one year your files will be deleted. From then on Copyright House will not be able to prove that you were the owner of the work(s). We will send you reminders of upcoming renewals.
v. Payments made in monthly instalments should be completed in full. If you cancel the recurring Paypal payments before the end of the period you have requested, your account will be downgraded to a yearly account. (i.e. If you cancel after five monthly instalments, your membership will be valid for 5 years)
vi. You agree that you keep your email address and personal details up-to-date, so we can contact you to prevent cancellation of your account. You can cancel your account at any time. In such a situation your account will be suspended, but not deleted until the expiration date, unless you explicitly request us to delete the account, including the registered works at the time of cancellation.
vii. You agree not to upload viruses and other malware and not to hack, corrupt, or tamper with the system. If Copyright House determines that you have done any of these, Copyright House reserves the right to restrict access to your account.
viii. Members of Copyright House will not infringe an already existing copyright. Should such an infringement occur, the member committing the infringement will provide Copyright House compensation for any loss, damage or costs incurred by Copyright House.
ix. Members accede that they are the copyright owner or acting directly on behalf of the copyright owner for every registration made.
i. These terms and conditions constitute the complete agreement between Copyright House and its members. All other terms and conditions expressed by statute or otherwise are excluded to the fullest extent of the law.
ii. You agree to indemnify Copyright House in full against any loss or penalty that incurs because of your breach of any of these provisions.
iii. If any one of these terms and conditions are considered to be invalid by a competent authority, the remaining terms and conditions will be unaffected.
iv. These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
