Welcome to Harmony Helper™, a service provided by Harmony Helper, LLC (“Harmony Helper”, “we” “our” or “us”), a limited liability company.
Description of the Services
Description. The Services enable you to make recordings of harmonies to practice (“Recordings“). In connection with making Recordings, the Services enable you to (i) record audio-only works, depicting or otherwise capturing you singing the lyrics or music of musical works of your choice (including your own compositions); and/or (ii) include in your Recordings sound obtained with permission from others, such as Music Directors or Teachers. In addition to enabling you to create Recordings, the Services may also allow you to (A) save your Recordings locally to your device; and (B) share a Recording or a link to your Recordings to certain third party social media platforms (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, Vine or WhatsApp) subject to the terms and conditions in this Agreement. All persons who create Recordings and other users of the Services are referred to collectively as “Users.”
Private Accounts. Harmony Helper may provide you with functionality to make Recordings publicly available on the Services or only available to people you approve. To the extent Harmony Helper provides this functionality, you should select the preferred privacy setting available within the applicable App.
Mobile Services. All or portions of the Services may be accessible via a mobile phone, tablet or other wireless device (collectively, “Mobile Services“). Your mobile carrier’s normal messaging, data and other rates and fees will apply to your use of the Mobile Services. In addition, downloading, installing or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your mobile carrier and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. Harmony Helper does not represent or warrant that the Services will be compatible with your mobile device(s). You are responsible for checking with your mobile carrier to determine if the Mobile Services are compatible with your mobile device(s), what restrictions, if any, may be applicable to your use of the Mobile Services, and how much they will cost you. Nevertheless, all uses of the Services and the related Mobile Services must be in accordance with this Agreement

Repeat Infringer Policy
Harmony Helper’s intellectual property policy is to (a) remove material that Harmony Helper believes in good faith, upon receipt of notice from an intellectual property owner or their agent, is infringing the intellectual property of a third party by being made available through the Services, and (b) remove any content posted to the Services by “repeat infringers.” Harmony Helper considers a “repeat infringer” to be any User that has uploaded content to the Services and for whom Harmony Helper has received more than two takedown notices compliant with the provisions of 17 U.S.C. § 512(c) with respect to such content. Harmony Helper has discretion to terminate the account of any User of the Services after receipt of a single notification of claimed infringement or on Harmony Helper’s own determination.
