Terms & Conditions
By downloading or using the app, these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure therefore that you read them carefully before using the app. You’re not allowed to copy, or modify the app, any part of the app, or our trademarks in any way. You’re not allowed to attempt to extract the source code of the app, and you also shouldn’t try to translate the app into other languages, or make derivative versions. The app itself, and all the trade marks, copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights related to it, still belong to Bittunes Pty.

Use of Bitcoin in the Bittunes App
Bitcoin may be deposited in the Bittunes App via the ‘My Transactions’ page inside the application. Deposited funds can only be used for buying songs in the application. The Bittunes app uses the Coinbase API to handle the depositing of funds process. The Bittunes app facilitates the earning of Bitcoin microtransactions in relation to the purchasing of songs in Bittunes. Selection of users who will receive microtransactions is based on a selection algorithm that rewards loyalty in the system. (users who rate songs and log-in often will be more likely to be selected for a microtransaction reward in relation to songs they have purchased). There are two accounts per user, an ‘Earnings Balance’ account and a ‘Deposit Balance’ account. Micro transactions earned are deposited into a user’s ‘Deposit Balance’ account. The ‘Earnings Balance’ account functions like a credit system for buying songs, much like a stock image service, (such as iStockphoto.com) where users buy credits for purchasing songs. In a similar way to the way stock image services function, once a deposit is made for purchasing songs it is non-refundable. However, users may withdraw funds from their ‘Earnings Balance’ account, after they have received accrued micro earnings.
Storage of personal data
Data usage and Bandwidth Considerations
You should be aware that there are certain things that Bittunes Pty. Ltd. will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the app will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but Bittunes cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.
If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app.
Along the same lines, Bittunes Pty. Ltd. cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app i.e. You need to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to avail the Service, Bittunes Pty. Ltd.cannot accept responsibility

With respect to Bittunes Pty. Ltd.’s responsibility for your use of the app, when you’re using the app, it’s important to bear in mind that although we endeavour to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. Bittunes Pty. Ltd. accepts no liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of the app.
At some point, we may wish to update the app. The app is currently available on Android only – the requirements for both systems (and for any additional systems we decide to extend the availability of the app to) may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the app. Bittunes Pty. Ltd. does not promise that it will always update the app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the Android version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept updates to the application when offered to you, We may also wish to stop providing the app, and may terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you.
