These Terms of Service may be updated from time to time. Non-material changes and
clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days
of their posting on this website. Where the changes are material,

The platform offers a hosting service where registered users may submit, upload and post audio, text,
images, comments, ratings and other content, data or information ("Content"), which will be stored
on our servers at the direction of such registered users.
The content is shared by such users and may be viewed, listened to, and downloaded by other registered
users, via the uFXloops App or via the services provided by our Website.
ufxmedia may apply a service fee to the offering of audio-related downloads which is displayed as a price in Coins ("Coins", "Community Coins"). Coins can be purchased via the ufxloops App (In-App-Buys), or they can be obtained via promotions and other incentives, that ufxmedia may offer from time to time. Users have no obligation to purchase Coins. Further, Coins are non-refundable and non-transferrable to others.
Uploaders obtain a commission as a percentage of Coins charged for each download of one of their uploads. Earned Coins can be used for subsequent usages of ufxloops services (e.g. Downloads). We may, from time to time, offer other incentives for uploaders who have earned a substantial amount of Coins for the Download of their authored content.
We may, from time to time, release new tools and resources on the Website, release new versions of our Apps, or introduce other services and/or features for the Platform. Any new services and features will be subject to these Terms of Service as well as any additional terms of service that we may release for those specific services or features.
