By using the LiveVoice (“Service”), you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”).
LiveVoice GmbH, whose registered office is at Clemens-Krauss-Straße 21, 5020 Salzburg, Austria (“Company”, “we”, “us”) reserves the right to update and change these Terms of Service without notice.
Violation of any of the terms below may result in the termination of your account.
‘Speaker Code’ is a numerical, 6-digit code to join an event hosted on the Service as the speaker for one specific stream. Every stream has its own private Speaker Code.
‘Listener Code’ is a numerical, 6-digit code to join an event hosted on the Service as the listener.
‘Max Listeners’ is the limited number of people allowed to listen at the same time.
‘Event’ refers to a virtual space hosted by the Service, providing one or more streams where people who joined with a Listener Code can consume audio transmission, and people who joined with a Speaker Code can live broadcast for their associated stream.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and password. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. The Company cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
By connecting to the Service with a third-party service, you give Us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your login credentials and other data received from that service.
By providing your email address you consent to receive service related notices, including any notices required by law, instead of communication by postal mail.
By providing your email address you also consent to receive LiveVoice news and other updates via email. You can opt out of these anytime by unsubscribing or changing the settings in your account.
You are responsible for all audio content streamed under your account (even when audio content is streamed by others who have gained access to one of the speaker codes under your account).
You may not use the Service for any illegal purpose or to violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
LiveVoice does not record automatically. If you wish to record your streams, you have to turn this feature on actively. In self-service mode you as the admin need to activate it yourself. If you book setup support from LiveVoice, you need to actively demand to turn it on before your event. If you fail to do so, LiveVoice is not able to provide recordings afterwards. Only events that include recordings as part of the signed offer contract have a right to receive recordings. As recording files are created by the speaker clicking start of a channel that has recording activated, recordings are saved in the system and delivered as a series of individual files; editing service e.g. to create a single file of a whole event will be billed separately.
LiveVoice does not take responsibility for the quality or usability of any recordings made. As recording and sound quality depend on a number of factors like internet connection or device that is used, there is no guarantee the created audio files can be used later on. LiveVoice is not liable in the case that audio recordings do not provide the expected outcome.
If you use the recording function, it is your responsibility to obtain the consent of the speaker or any other person who can be heard through the speaker device. LiveVoice is not responsible for obtaining this consent. If you require to turn on recording manually via LiveVoice staff, you need to provide written consent from the sender (e.g. interpreters). Recordings are limited to 1 hour per day if you are using a free plan. For BASIC limit is 3 hours per day. For PRO it is unlimited. Currently this is on a fair use principle. All recordings will be deleted from our servers after 30 days. Files that are demanded 30 days or more after the event took place can not be provided anymore.
The number of events and channels created in each account is subject to fair use. LiveVoice reserves the right to delete events or channels if a user creates too many events or channels and does not react to the written request by LiveVoice to limit the number of the events or channels.
You must provide your legal full name, a valid email address, and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
Any use or access to the service by anyone under age of 18 is strictly prohibited and in violation of this agreement.
You must be a human. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted.
Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms
The Service is offered with a free plan limited to 3 Max Listeners. This free plan is for testing purposes only. You may not use the free plan for commercial purposes at any time without permission from LiveVoice. The Company reserves the right to discontinue the free plan at any time. In this case all accounts running on free plan would be notified at least 30 days before the change takes effect.
Any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, will result in the new rate being charged at the next billing cycle. There will be no prorating for downgrades in between billing cycles.
Enabling 'Temporary Auto Upgrade' and then using the Service above currently booked Max Listener Limit will result in an additional day plan being charged at the end of that day. Starting with the smallest day plan the Service will automatically choose the smallest possible day plan to cover the above Max Listener Limit count. You are responsible to enable or disable the 'Temporary Auto Upgrade' setting of your account before, after or during your events.
Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of features or capacity (e.g. a lower Max Listener limit) of your account. The Company does not accept any liability for such loss.
