Effective as from 1 June 2017
In order to use the Soundreef Service, you need to (a) be 18 or older, or be 13 or older and have your parent or guardian’s consent to these Terms, (b) have the power to enter a binding contract with us and are not barred from doing so under any applicable laws. You also warrant that any registration information that you submit to Soundreef is true, accurate and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times.
- Changes to the Agreements
Occasionally we may, in our discretion, make changes to the Soundreef Service and Agreements. When we make changes to the Agreements that we consider material, we’ll notify you through the Service. By continuing to use the Service after those changes are made, you are expressing and acknowledging your acceptance of the changes.
- Enjoying Soundreef
Here’s some information about all the ways you can enjoy Soundreef.
Soundreef account holders may access the Soundreef Service by any of our several Subscriptions:
Webradio Service: a subscription fee-based service;
3.2 Codes and other Limited Offers
If you have purchased a code sold by or on behalf of Soundreef for access to the Webradio Services for the time period indicated on your email, card or paper receipt (“Code”), or if you are accessing the service through some other limited offer which you received or purchased from Soundreef (“Limited Offer”), these Agreements apply to your access to the Service. Any separate sets of terms and conditions presented to you along with the Code or other Limited Offer also apply to your access to the Service using the Code or Limited Offer.
Subject to any rights you may have under Section 12, Codes are only redeemable in the country where you purchased such Code, not redeemable for cash and may not be returned for a cash refund, exchanged, resold or used to purchase other Codes.
From time to time, we may offer trials of the Webradio Service for a specified period without payment (a “Trial”). Soundreef reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial, and to withdraw or to modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability.
For some Trials, we’ll require you to provide your payment details to start the Trial. At the end of such Trials, we may automatically start to charge you for the Webradio Service on the first day following the end of the Trial, on a recurring monthly basis. By providing your payment details in conjunction with the Trial, you agree to this charge. If you do not want this charge, you must stop using your Webradio Service before the end of the Trial.
- Licence and assignment
The Soundreef Service and the content provided through it are the property of Soundreef or Soundreef’s licensors, and we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable licence to make commercial use of the Soundreef Service and to receive the media content made available through the Soundreef Service in your local country (as described in your application to use the Soundreef Service), based on the Subscription or Trial you have selected (the “Licence”). This Licence shall remain in effect for a period of 20 years unless terminated by you or Soundreef.
The Soundreef software applications are licensed, not sold, to you, and Soundreef retains ownership of all copies of the Soundreef software applications even after installation on your Devices. Soundreef may assign these Agreements or any part of them without restrictions. You may not assign these Agreements or any part of them, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under this Licence, to any third party.
All Soundreef trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, and any other features of the Soundreef brand are the sole property of Soundreef. This Licence does not grant you any rights to use the Soundreef trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, domain names, or any other features of the Soundreef brand, whether for commercial or non-commercial use.
You agree to abide by our User Guidelines and not to use the Soundreef Service (including but not limited to its content) in any manner not expressly permitted by the Terms.
Third party software libraries included in the Soundreef Service are licensed to you either under these Terms, or under the relevant third party software library’s licence terms as published in the help or settings section of our desktop and mobile client and on our website.
The Webradio service is not available to certain types of user and some users will have to enter into a different type of agreement with Soundreef. That will be made clear on your application form and if you have any queries you can contact us.
- Third Party Applications
In consideration for the rights granted to you under these Terms, you grant us the right (a) to allow the Soundreef Service to use the processor, bandwidth and storage hardware on your Device in order to facilitate the operation of the Service, (b) to provide advertising and other information to you, if you subscribe to the Webradio Service, and (c) to allow our business partners to do the same.

We endeavour to provide the best service we can, but you understand and agree that THE SOUNDREEF SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. YOU USE THE SOUNDREEF SERVICE AT YOUR OWN RISK. SOUNDREEF DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. In addition, Soundreef does not warrant, endorse, guarantee or assume responsibility for any Third Party Applications, Third Party Application content, User Content, or any other product or service advertised or offered by a third party on or through the Soundreef Service or any hyperlinked website, or featured in any banner or other advertising. You understand and agree that Soundreef is not responsible or liable for any transaction between you and third-party providers of Third Party Applications or products or services advertised on or through the Soundreef Service. As with any purchase of a product or service through any medium or in any environment, you should use your judgment and exercise caution where appropriate. No advice or information whether oral or in writing obtained by you from Soundreef shall create any warranty on behalf of Soundreef in this regard. Some aspects of this section may not apply in some jurisdictions.

- Entire agreement
These Agreements constitute all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and Soundreef and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of these Agreements, whether written or oral. Any additional or different terms or conditions in relation to the subject matter of the Agreements in any written or oral communication from you to Soundreef are void. You represent that you have not accepted the Agreements in reliance on any oral or written representations made by Soundreef that are not contained in the Agreements.
Please note, however, that other aspects of your use of the Soundreef Service may be governed by additional agreements. That could include, for example, access to the Soundreef Community for customer support, access to the Soundreef Service as a result of a gift card, or free or discounted Trials. You will agree to separate terms and conditions in those circumstances. Those terms and conditions shall govern only with regard to the aspect of the Service to which they apply, and are distinct from and supplemental to these Agreements, and do not supersede these Agreements. To the extent that there is any conflict between those agreements and these Agreements, these Agreements shall control, except as otherwise provided in these Terms
Occasionally we may offer you the chance to participate in sweepstakes, contests, and surveys (“Special Promotions”) through the Service. Special Promotions may be governed by terms and conditions that are separate from these Terms. If the provisions of a Special Promotion’s terms and conditions conflict with these Terms, those separate terms and conditions shall prevail.
Should any provision of the Terms be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent then it will be deemed deleted asthough it had never been included and such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Terms.
- Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales. Any dispute related to its interpretation and execution shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the High Court in London.
Thank you for reading our Terms. We hope you enjoy Soundreef.
