Reaktion offers this website, including all information, tools and services available from this site to you, the user, conditioned upon your acceptance of all terms, conditions, policies and notices stated here.

These Terms of Service apply to all users of the site, including without limitation users who are browsers, vendors, customers, merchants, and/ or contributors of content.

It is your responsibility to check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of or access to the website following the posting of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
SECTION 1 – ONLINE STORE TERMS
By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
You may not use our products for any illegal or unauthorized purpose nor may you, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
You must not transmit any worms or viruses or any code of a destructive nature.
A breach or violation of any of the Terms will result in an immediate termination of your Services.
SECTION 2 – GENERAL CONDITIONS
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
You understand that your content (not including credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks.
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service or any contact on the website through which the service is provided, without express written permission by us.
Any customer may discontinue their services for any reason. If you opt to discontinue your services, we will cease further work on your services, upon receipt of your cancellation, refund and Agreement termination written request, with the understanding that certain pre-planned posts, promotions and/or pitches may have already been scheduled or submitted, and those posts and/or pitches may or may not removed following discontinuance. In the event of cancelation of agreement at any point, your coverage is void from that date. Any exceptions are at the disgression of Reaktion DJ Promotions.
- If a customer cancels within 2 days after the customer signs up for a service, then the fees paid will be 100% refundable except for any costs, expenses and/or transaction fee charges incurred and/or assessed during such time (such as but not limited to credit card and PayPal transaction fees).
- If a customer cancels within 14 days after the customer signs up for a service, then the total fees for the service, once paid, will be 75% refundable except for any costs, expenses and/or transaction fee charges incurred and/or assessed during such time (such as but not limited to credit card and PayPal transaction fees).
- If a customer cancels within 21 days after the customer signs up for a service, then the total fees for the service, once paid, will be 50% refundable except for any costs, expenses and/or transaction fee charges incurred and/or assessed during such time (such as but not limited to credit card and PayPal transaction fees).
- From 22 days, there are no refunds, full or partial, for cancellations.
We will normally decline refund requests in the following cases:
- When any statements of dissatisfaction or requests for refunds are received after a service is completed, usually beyond 21 days as noted above.
- When a customer informs us about changing the decision to start a service after actions have already been taken in the public domain. This can mean any distribution of public press releases, interviews, pitches or media content of any description.
- When a customer’s expectation of achievable campaign results is deemed unrealistic for the current public status of the project.
- When a customer requests a refund due to the absence of services that we never claimed to provide and that are not listed on our website.
- When a customer requests refund beyond 21 days of service provided for monthly subscriptions.
- When a customer requests a refund due to the absence of services that were not agreed on. Our list of services are there to provide examples of everything that we can offer, it is not a list of everything that will be completed for every client regardless of the nature of the project.
- When a customer does not utilise, but fails to cancel the service subscription.
- When a customer requests a refund due to the absence of services that we do offer, but are not viable to the client. For example if a client asks for evidence of work done on A&R but never provided any demos, this is not grounds for refund.
- When a customer’s dissatisfaction is based on communication issues and/or delays that are either in a large part or fully the fault of the customer’s own poor communications or time-keeping. This nature of complaint is entirely at the digression of the service provider.
- When a customer requests a refund after publicly posting and benefiting from our work. Dissatisfaction should and must be expressed before an irretrievable promo service is carried out. A refund in this case would not return the promotional work done by the service provider and is therefor not an acceptable request for refund.
- When the customer cannot return the work done without benefiting from the service.
- Subscriptions must be cancelled via e-mail contact/notice prior to cancelling a Paypal subscription. If you cancel a payment plan without informing us, you may lose access to your promotion links. Our system will usually irretrievably remove these links. Cancelling a payment plan and losing access to promo reports is not grounds for refund by our site and service terms.
Submissions delivered to the agency for promotion should be in totality confirmed and cleared for promotion and distribution by the rights-holder. Failure to do this and any resulting implications are the failings of the client, not the agency. As with all forms of digital music distribution, piracy protection is advised and is the duty of the label, artist or customer to manage.
These policies are publicly available on www.reaktion.net Failure to read and understand the terms stated does not void their legitimacy. Any and all customers of service are subject to these terms in full.
- Explanation and Rationale:
Once you register for an account, we make extensive arrangements and financial investments in order to provide your services, and, in the case of your cancellation, refund or Agreement termination, we incur significant administration challenges, a drain on resources, expenses and third party costs, loss of substantial time in addition to loss of open service slots for other artists who want to jumpstart their projects. Given these facts, we cannot issue 100% refunds after a certain amount of time.
- Extenuating Circumstances:
We understand that there might be extenuating circumstances. Please contact us and we will work with you to address your problem. In accordance with this exception, refunds may be granted on a case-by-case basis, are at our sole discretion and all decisions are final and binding. When exceptions are made, refunds may be partial and or limited and no transaction fees are refunded. In some circumstances, we may instead offer to defer your service to a later date or suspend performance for an agreed period.
The headings used in this agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms.

You are solely responsible for any comments you make and their accuracy. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any comments posted by you or any third-party.
SECTION 10 – PERSONAL INFORMATION
On the subject of mails outwards either for the use of marketing or sharing of promos, we abide by company policy in that we will not contact non-public e-mail addresses and only ever approach public figures that are found on either official websites of fan-page specific social media for a public entity as an artist to label that can for the avoidance of doubt be considered a business entity either as a LTD company or other freelance/self-employed endeavour as a solo project in the music industry as is the more common norm. We consider our promos and marketing mails a B2B arrangement in which only ‘legitimate interests’ are ever considered. In the case of our project, we determine legitimate interests as in the case of marketing mails, an artist/label/management agency or other public figure that discloses public contact details in a professional capacity as a mechanism of contact for them in a professional presentation of accurate relevance. Our rationale is simply that we adopt a format used by nearly every artist in the music world in that we consider it industry standard and expected to receive contact from other artists in the case of demos or in the case of a DJ/Producer ‘promos’. We consider a public music industry figure’s inbox a fair estimation of a business contact and any contact of ours in the interest of fair and legitimate interest between two commercial endeavours. The process of sending and receiving demos and promos from the top down is assumed as fair ‘legitimate interest’ in the same capacity that any DJ/Producer/Band would and does contact other DJs for support. If the demo/promo sending procedure was stopped or put to ‘opt in only’ there would be very little of the music industry left and fair promotion and growth of an artist or project would be immensely restricted to an unreasonable degree of expectation.
For the avoidance of doubt, we keep closely monitored ‘do not contact’ lists.
If you believe you have received an e-mail in error or would prefer not to engage in the standard promo/demo process – just send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll happily add you to our no contacts list.
SECTION 11 – ERRORS, INACCURACIES AND OMISSIONS
Occasionally there may be information on our site or in the Service that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, product shipping charges, transit times and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information in the Service or on any related website is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order).
We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information in the Service or on any related website, including without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law. No specified update or refresh date applied in the Service or on any related website, should be taken to indicate that all information in the Service or on any related website has been modified or updated.
