We are PlayDJ Limited (PlayDJ, we, us, our), a UK company with registered company number 11944068 and with a registered office at 71-75 Shelton Street, London WC2H 9JQ.

THESE TERMS

These terms and conditions (together with the documents referred to in them) (the Terms) govern your relationship with us when you access our streaming platform located at www.playdj.tv and any related mobile sites or applications (the Platform) as described further below.

These Terms set out how you may access the services available on the Platform (the Services).

Please read these Terms carefully before you start to use the Services, as by using any of the Services you indicate that you accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with them.

OTHER APPLICABLE TERMS

These terms also include:

CHANGES TO THESE TERMS

At any time, we may amend these Terms to ensure that we remain compliant with relevant laws and regulations and to ensure that we are constantly improving your experience using the Services.

Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we have made. By continuing to use any of the Services 14 days after we notify you of the changes made, you are deemed to have accepted those changes and will be bound by them.

YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM

We offer various Services through the Platform, including those which allow you, strictly in accordance with these Terms, to:

  • Create a personal, customisable page on the Platform (called your Channel);
  • Host your own live pay-to-view and free-to-view events and shows via the Platform (the Events);
  • Monetise free-to-view Events through receipt of tips and donations;
  • Sell and purchase tickets to Events;
  • Invite other users of the Platform to access your Channel and interact with those users via the social media interfaces provided;
  • Stream live audio sets with chat;
  • Stream live video sets with chat;
  • Upload podcasts, short profile videos and tutorials;
  • Take bookings and enquiries; and
  • Subscribe to various DJ channels.

The list above is not an exhaustive list of the Services and we may decide to offer additional Services or cease to provide any Services, at any time.

The Services are not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or any regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.

REGISTRATION

You must be at least 18 years old to use the Services. If you are under the age of 18, you are not permitted to use the Services without permission of a parent or legal guardian.

You do not have to register to use some of the Services, but most of the Services are available only to users that register and set up an account.

To register, you will need to complete a simple registration process by providing certain information (including your name, email address and password). You will also need to choose a username and password for use in connection with your account.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account information, and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your password, account or Channel and for any access to or use of the Services by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorised by you.

You must immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security relating to the Services. We will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever resulting from the disclosure of your username and/or password contrary to these Terms.

ACCOUNTS FOR DJs

If you want to stream your DJ sets on the Platform you need to have an account, and we offer three different types of accounts: Free User; Pro DJ; and Premium DJ (each a Plan). We may also offer enterprise accounts but these will be subject to alternative and/or additional terms and conditions.

There are differences between the types of Plan (as further set out here [https://www.playdj.tv/rates]), including but not limited to:

  • Pricing: There is a monthly fee payable for all Plans except for the Free User Plan;

  • Monetisation: Depending on the Plan you choose, you will be able to do some or all of the following things. All sales will be through the Platform and we will take commission on sales as set out in the [Rates]. Our commission on tips/donations will vary depending on the type of Plan.

  • Sale of Channel subscriptions, merchandise and ticketed Events;
  • Virtual party bookings; and
  • Live booking enquiries.

  • Bolt-Ons: You can bolt on extra set length and/or room capacity to your standard Plan allowance.  The cost of bolt-ons will vary according to the type of Plan (e.g. the cost of increasing capacity of the room size per hour) and is set out in the [Rates].

  • Advertising: Adverts will be shown and displayed amongst content streamed under any Plan. We retain all advertising revenue.

We may amend the features of the Plans from time to time but commit not to reduce the core hosting and streaming capacity features of your Plan during that current service period.

ACCOUNTS FOR VIEWERS

You do not need an account to view some of the free Services but you need to register for an account to access paid for Services. As an account holder you are able to:

  • Pay to stream Events on a pay-per-view basis;
  • Support a DJ, and possibly gain access to extra content, by paying for a subscription to their Channel;
  • Pay for one-off courses or content collections such as interviews, tutorials or podcasts; or
  • Show DJs support through tip donations in respect of streamed sets.

Prices will appear on the relevant page(s) of the Platform and, in respect of Events, must be made in advance, in full. For more information about cancelling Channel subscriptions or refunds for Events, please see here [Payment FAQs].

FEES AND PAYMENT

Some of the Services are provided free of charge. For example, the Free User plan allows DJs to sign up without charge and stream various events or content without payment. For a monthly fee, DJs can upgrade to Pro DJ or Premium DJ plans in order to access wider benefits, as further detailed here [https://www.playdj.tv/rates].

DJs can monetise their use of the Platform as set out within these Terms. However, any payouts must be requested; they are not automatically sent out. For more information on how to withdraw payments please see our [Payment FAQs] available here [Payment FAQs].

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay cards for payment. By paying using your credit or debit card you confirm that the card is yours and that there are sufficient funds or credit available to cover the relevant fees.

If you choose a monthly payment option your subscription will run from month to month, and will renew automatically at the end of each monthly period. Payment for the next monthly period will be taken at the end of the previous monthly period, unless you cancel your subscription, which you can do at any time by [contacting us at [support@playdj.tv]/visiting the [DJ Billing] page].

If you are not a professional DJ, you have additional cancellation rights as described in these Terms here [Payment FAQs].

PLATFORM MANAGEMENT

We may change, modify or remove the Services or the contents of the Platform at any time or for any reason without notice.

The Services are provided on an “as is” basis. We make no representations, warranties or guarantees or any kind regarding the availability or operation of the Services, or that the Services will be secure, uninterrupted or free of defects.

Your access to the Services may be suspended or restricted occasionally to allow for maintenance, repairs, upgrades or the introduction of new functions or services. We will do our best to provide you with notice of any outages but will not be liable to you for any loss, damage or inconvenience if for any reason the Services are unavailable at any time or for any period.

Whilst we have no legal obligation to do so, we may monitor the content on the Platform for any breaches of these Terms; take appropriate action against anyone in breach of these Terms; and refuse, restrict access to or availability of any of the User Content that does not comply with these Terms.

NO RELIANCE ON INFORMATION

All information published on or via the Platform is provided in good faith and for general information purposes only. We make no warranties about the completeness, reliability, or accuracy of such information. Any action you take based on such information is taken at your own risk.

OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU

We do not exclude or limit our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. 

If you are a consumer, we provide the Services for domestic and private use only. We will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity.

We are not responsible for the acts or omissions of any third party, including any third- party app store or advertisers and any third party that brings an action against you relating to your use of the Services.

OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.

If we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that does not mean that we have waived our rights against you, and it does not mean that you are relieved of your obligations under these Terms. No waiver by us of a breach by you will be effective unless it is in writing, and it will not mean that we will automatically waive any later breach by you.

Each of the terms and conditions of these Terms operates separately. If any court or competent authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining terms and conditions will remain in full force and effect.

These Terms are governed by English law and the courts of England and Wales have non-exclusive jurisdiction.
