UkeTok - Legal

Terms and Legal Stuff is owned and operated by UkeTok Ltd, a company registerd in England and Wales with registration number 13471145.

When I say "we", it means this company, but behind the scenes, it's basically just me

I decided to form a new legal entity to separate UkeTok from my other company - the one that pays the bills - and to reduce my personal liability in case we get something wrong.

Music licensing is important, but it's complicated.

Apart from a few that are in the public domain, the songs featured on this site are protected under copyright by their respective owners.

We pay license fees, which generate revenue for the songwriter or rights holder every time you play one of their songs via UkeTok.

We charge a fee to cover song licensing but a free account allows you to evaluate the full functionality of the software before making any payments to unlock additional content.

We log which songs are played, so we can pay the correct license fee, to see which songs are most popular, and to check we've set prices correctly.

Our license covers streaming of music and lyrics via the UkeTok app only. You may not download or otherwise copy the audio tracks, chords or lyrics without permission.

You may not use the backing tracks to perform in public, nor as part of an audio recording, cover song or tutorial video without permission.

The UkeTok app is provided 'as is' and without warranty.

It is a software-as-a-service application and an internet connection is required.

We use this site all the time, so if it goes down we're annoyed. We make no guarantee of availability, but if there's a problem, we're probably already working on it.

Software updates are provided automatically and we may, at our discretion, add, change or remove features without prior notice. A changelog can be viewed on the web site.

We require you to register a user account with a valid email address to access the service.

We'll confirm your email address using a mailing list program. If you don't want to receive emails from us, except important account information, you can unsubscribe at any time.

All payments are processed via Patreon and any queries, refunds and cancellations must be made via that platform.
