1. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE
2. What's in these terms?
These terms tell you the rules for using our website www.sendittomedia.co.uk (our Site) and using our self-service distribution services (our Services).
3. Who we are and how to contact us
The Site is operated by VP Limited ("We", ”VP”). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 05756239 and have our registered office at The Brew, Victoria House Lower Ground Left, 64 Paul Street, London, EC2A 4NG

4. By using our Site you accept these terms
If you do not agree to these terms, you must not use our Site.
In our discretion, we may maintain different accounts for different types of users. If you open an account on behalf of your company, then "you" includes you and your company, and you represent and warrant that you are an authorised representative of your company with the authority to bind the entity to these terms, and that you agree to these terms on your company's behalf.
We recommend that you print a copy of these terms for future reference.
5. There are other terms that may apply to you
6. We may make changes to these terms
We amend these terms from time to time. Every time you wish to use our Site, please check these terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.
7. We may make changes to our Site
We may update and change our Site from time to time to reflect changes to our Service, our users' needs and our business priorities.
We offer a self-serve distribution platform for distributors and reviewers to review music, whether by premium (paid) credits or stand (free) credits.
We facilitate communication between those sharing music and those receiving music. We will do our best to ensure that this communication takes place as smoothly as possible. We cannot, however, be held responsible for the actions of those using this Service.
We fully expect that when a blog, label, SoundCloud channel, YouTube channel or similar entity agrees to review a song, it is their intention to do so. We will help to facilitate contact between the two parties if issues arise. We cannot, however, be held accountable if said communication fails.
By registering and participating in the Services, you agree that:
Funding Your Account
You may fund your account in two ways: (1) you can process payments to your account via a credit card or PayPal ("Deposited Funds"); and (2) you can earn funds by approving premium submissions as a reviewer ("Earned Funds"). Deposited Funds will appear as "Premium Credits" in your account balance and be available for you to purchase premium submissions; however, Deposited Funds may not be cashed out. Earned Funds will generally appear in your account balance after responding to a premium submission, and Earned Funds may be cashed out upon your request per the instructions given elsewhere on the Site. Please note that if your account is inactive for a six-month period (i.e. you have not signed into your account, you have not added more Deposited Funds, you have not purchased any premium credits, or you have not received any Earned Funds during that time), then we may deem your account inactive. If your account is inactive after a twelve-month period, your account balance will be charged an inactive fee. VP may, but has no obligation to, give you prior notice of the imposition of any inactive fee.
If no response is received to a request for feedback, the sender of the request will be refunded the credit used to send the feedback. The credit may be used again on the site, but a cash refund will not be provided.
In addition to our other rights and remedies, we may (a) withhold and offset any payments owed to you under these terms against any fees you owe us under these terms or any other agreement, or (b) require you to refund us within 30 days of any invoice, any amounts we may have overpaid to you in prior periods. If you dispute any payment made or withheld relating to the Service, you must notify us in writing within 30 days of any such payment. If you do not, any claim relating to the disputed payment is waived. To ensure proper payment, you are responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information in your account. You are responsible for any charges assessed by your bank or payment provider.
