ARTIST BASIC Account. Users have access to basic features of the platform free of charge.

ARTIST MULTI Account. Users have access to all the features of an ARTIST PRO account plus an additional functionality to manage up to 10 ARTIST PRO accounts.
BRAND Accounts. Users have access to the full directory of artists, and can send pitches to the artists directly via Our Website.
Cancellations. You may cancel your ARTIST PRO or ARTIST MULTI Account at any time by downgrading to ARTIST BASIC but you won’t be issued a refund unless it’s legally required.
You may cancel your BRAND account at any given time but you won’t be issued a refund unless it’s legally required.
Downgrades. Your ARTIST PRO or ARTIST MULTI Account will remain in effect until it’s cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If your payment doesn’t go through on time, or is declined, we reserve the right to automatically downgrade your account.
If you wish to downgrade your ARTIST MULTI Account or ARTIST PRO account to ARTISTS BASIC and have one or more accounts linked to your master email, you must create a secondary login for each of those additional accounts before downgrading.
If you wish to remove an account you manage, the account will be immediately downgraded and could affect its status and activity, with the exception of those accounts that were previously on one of our subscription plans. In that case, the old plan will resume.
If you downgrade your ARTIST MULTI Account to a ARTIST PRO account, all of the additional accounts managed through the ARTIST MULTI Account Feature will be automatically downgraded to a ARTIST BASIC account once the billing period ends.
Changes. We reserve the right to make changes to your account at any time, this includes the fees associated to ARTIST PRO Accounts, ARTIST MULTI and BRAND Accounts but will notify you of such changes to the email address associated with your account.
Other services contracted by Us are exclusive of VAT and other similar taxes (where applicable). Without limiting the foregoing, Users shall be liable for any taxes, duties or charges imposed in respect of Our Services (other than taxes imposed on Our income). For the avoidance of doubt, if the effect of any tax, duty or charge applied to the Fees is to reduce the Our revenue under this Agreement, the Fees will be grossed up such that Our revenue under this Agreement is not reduced.
All payments must be made in US Dollar, British Pound or Euro.
Where we are required to make a payment to You, either as an Artist, Brand or Manager following the receipt by Us of Fees received from another user of Our Services, You acknowledge that:
(a) We may first seek to verify the legitimacy of any payments We received from the other user;
(b) if, in Our reasonable opinion, We believe such payments are not legitimate (including, for example, payments made by the unauthorised use of a credit card), then We can retain and deal with such payments in our Own discretion; and
(c) the relevant transaction under which the illegitimate payment was received by Us will be deemed to be void, and We will not be required to make any payment to You as a result (but may, in Our discretion, make a payment to You equal to the whole or part of the amount which would have otherwise been due to You, depending on how we deal with the illegitimate payment).
FEES AND BILLING PERIOD
ARTIST PRO and ARTIST MULTI Accounts. We’ll automatically charge You from the date You upgrade and on each periodic renewal until cancellation, inclusive of any taxes.
BRAND Accounts. We’ll automatically charge You from the date You create Your account (excluding the trial period if applicable) and on each periodic renewal until cancellation, inclusive of any taxes.
For ARTIST PRO and ARTIST MULTI Accounts, when you switch subscription plan in the middle of a billing period, here’s what happens:
If you upgrade from an ARTIST BASIC account (free) to an ARTIST PRO account (monthly or yearly) the first full period of the new plan begins immediately. The same applies when you upgrade to the ARTIST MULTI Account option. You will be charged recurrently every month, or year. The subscription can be cancelled at any time by downgrading to ARTIST BASIC.
If you switch from a monthly to a yearly ARTIST PRO account or ARTIST MULTI Account subscription, or vice versa, you will be charged the new amount less the account balance.
If the account balance amount is larger than the amount due, you will not be charged anything, and the account balance is carried over to future billing periods, until it’s spent down.
If you cancel before the monthly or yearly subscription cycle ends, the subscription will continue until the last day of the cycle.
