Sundown Sessions Studio – Terms Of Use

By using the Sundown Sessions Studio online recording service, you (“Customer”) agree and are bound by the following terms of service:

Work For Hire
Sundown Sessions Studio agrees that all work performed for Customer shall be considered as “works made for hire” as contemplated and defined in Section 101 of the United States Copyright Act.

Sundown Sessions Studio hereby grants to Customer all rights of every kind and nature in and to the results and proceeds of Sundown Sessions Studio’s services and performances rendered hereunder, including, without limitation, all rights in and to the performances, compositions and/or masters produced for the Customer, including the worldwide copyrights therein, (including the universal copyright and any and all renewal and extension rights) for all uses of whatsoever nature whether now known or hereafter devised, throughout the world and universe. Customer shall accordingly have the sole and exclusive right to copyright any performances, compositions and/or masters embodying Sundown Sessions Studio’s performances under Customer’s name as the sole owner and author thereof.

Sundown Sessions Studio hereby waives the benefit of any provision of law known as “moral rights” or any similar analogous provision of any treaty, statute, regulation or rule of law of any government or quasi-governmental body in any country of the world or throughout the universe.

Turnaround Time
We make our best efforts to provide a turnaround time of 48-72 business hours from order completion and receiving your files for each service. Because we focus on quality, sometimes the turnaround time will exceed that.

* Mixing, mastering, horn and string sections turnaround time is approximately 72-96 business hours. We always hand pick the engineers that will mix and master your song(s), so sometimes it takes a little longer to schedule them.

We offer one free modification for each service you order. Additional modifications are $40 each.

A modification defined as change of the recorded preview (not a complete retake).
In addition, when the requested modification is more labor intensive, we reserve the right to charge more to perform it.
Modification requests must be provided within two weeks from receiving our preview.

Additional Takes
A complete new take/version of the recorded service is $120.

We do not offer a shipping service as we don’t provide CD-Rs of the master recordings. We use a designated file transfer service to store & share audio files. The Customer is responsible for having the ability to download the audio files directly from that file transfer service.

Refund policy
We offer a risk-free, money-back guarantee on your song.
After placing your order, we’ll send you a high quality mp3 preview of our recording. If you don’t approve the preview, just tell us why and we’ll refund your money in full.
If your order includes several services for a song and you decide to terminate the process, you’ll get a full refund for the services you didn’t approve.

Your Response:
If you fail to respond to an order within two weeks, the order will be automatically approved.

Your Warranty to Us:
