Terms & Conditions

Good agreements make good friends. And we like friends.
So here are some things we want you to know when you visit, use, share and enjoy our website.

General use of the website

Each user of our website understands that this use is always entirely at the user´s own risk. Our website is to be visited on an ´as is´ basis, thus without any (implicit or explicit) guarantee or condition.

Naturally, we are not offering you a website without having taken all necessary and reasonable measures that guarantee a proper functioning and security. Nevertheless, we cannot give any absolute guarantees. It is therefore possible that the user will suffer harm as a result of ´errors´ and/or viruses or similar harmful components that afflict our website and/or servers. However, we may not be held liable for any harm deriving from the use of the website.

In addition, the website is offered on an ´as available´ basis. We cannot give any guarantees with regard to the accessibility of our website. We will always take all reasonable measures in order to reduce the risk of malfunctions and/or interruptions to a minimum, but we shall under no circumstances be liable for harm resulting from a deficient access to the website.

It is possible that certain content can be downloaded via our website. Each download from our website is always at one´s own risk and harm to the user’s computer system falls completely and exclusively under the user´s responsibility.

Users and third parties must refrain from actions that could endanger the use of this website. If such an action endangers the proper functioning and/or the secure character of our website and/or leads to the deficient

accessibility of our website, the responsible person alone is personally and fully liable for all harm caused.

Finally, our website contains many references to other websites. Placing such references does not automatically mean that we (implicitly) approve of the content of these websites. These references shall thus be clicked on and visited at the user´s own risk and personal responsibility. We are not liable for any form of harm deriving from this.

We devote the greatest care to this website and the information appearing on it. This means that we take the necessary steps to keep it as complete, accurate and up-to-date as possible. This is a best-efforts obligation. We may therefore change, supplement or remove our website and its content at any time.

Nevertheless, we cannot give guarantees about the quality of the information on our website. Thus it is possible that the information will be incomplete and/or insufficiently accurate. We are therefore not liable for (direct and indirect) harm resulting from actions that the user takes on the basis of the information on our website.

All posters and festival artwork that appear on our website comes from third parties. These third parties, and not us, are themselves responsible for the quality of such content. We are not obliged to check this content in advance, even if we place the content itself on the website. However, we do our very best to avoid the displaying of inappropriate content and any other violations.

If certain content on our website constitutes a violation of the applicable law and/or an infringement of the rights of third parties and/or is simply unacceptable, we ask you to report this to us as soon as possible so that we can take the appropriate steps.

Content

In short: we say no to FFF!

We don’t tolerate any FFF (false, fake or filthy) images. In fact, they have very little chance to make it onto our website as we check all uploads manually. Uploaded posters and related information will only appear on the site after being validated by us and confirmed by email (see next topic ‘validation & confirmation procedure’).

However, we can’t be held responsible in case such imagery has slipped through the mazes of the net. Nor do we take any responsibility for false information that, with or without wrong intentions, ended up on the website (such as incorrect dates, dead links…).

Although we do everything we can in order to avoid false information as much as possible, the possibility exists that wrong images and info (once uploaded) will be shared by other visitors of the website. We shall under no circumstances be liable for this.

By submitting user content, you represent and warrant that:

  1. you are authorised to do this, because you are the festival organizer or you have the permission of the festival organizer;
  2. you automatically give the permission for the use of your images to be part of ‘patchwork Facebook cover photos’ that can be created by website visitors using our ‘patchwork cover maker’;
  3. we from Music Always Survives can use this content as part of communication assets to promote the website (posts and other images on Facebook, Instagram…);
  4. your content (dates for the new/next edition of your festival) can be shared by other site users through their social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and email);
  5. the content does not contain material that defames or vilifies any person, people, races, religion or religious group and is not obscene, pornographic, indecent, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable;
  6. the content does not include malicious code, including but not limited to viruses, trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or any other computer programming routines that may damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, program, data, or personal information;
  7. the content you upload will not infringe on the intellectual property rights or other rights of any person or entity, including copyright, moral rights, trade mark, patent or rights of privacy or publicity;
  8. you authorize us to make such copies as we deem necessary in order to facilitate the posting and storage of your content on the site; and
  9. we from Music Always Survives can remove uploaded images when we deem them inappropriate or even when we simply think the quality of the images doesn’t meet our standards (for example because of low resolution). Such removal can be done by us without the obligation to communicate this in advance, nor afterwards.

Seen anything unusual, false or disturbing? Contact us and we will take all the necessary steps to correct, replace or remove it asap.

Copyright

We don’t have any copyright for the posters and other festival artwork shown on our website. As a user of our website we expect you not to abuse this content. We only show images in a very good quality resolution, focused on web usage (no high-res). So if you were planning on starting your own little festival merchandising shop, we have to disappoint you.

Validation & confirmation procedure

After having uploaded a poster together with all the required (and preferred) information you will receive an email when the upload was successful. However, your content will not appear online automatically since it has to be validated first. We do our very best to validate your upload(s) within 24 – 48 hours, faster if possible.

Once validated you will receive a confirmation email (this is the only reason why we ask you for your email address). Either your upload is allowed and therefore becomes visible on the website, or it is refused.

A possible and immediate reason for refusal is imagery we do not tolerate (clearly false, fake, inappropriate or low resolution) or posters and other images for the wrong editions of your festival (for example a poster for the next edition in 2021 instead of the original 2020 poster).

Can you change/edit your own upload afterwards?

Yes. In case of approval you will receive a unique login code together with the validation email. With this password you are able to log in at the bottom of the website. It will reopen the upload screen of your poster, where you can add, change or remove whatever you want. Take into account that most data is required to have your poster appear correctly for all different filter selections.

After having confirmed your changes/removal you will receive a new confirmation (and validation) email. Therefore you will be asked for your email address once more, which again will be deleted from our database once the new validation email is sent. Unless you opt-in to receive an occasional message about the website and this initiative. Know that we will never spam you. We’ll only reach out when we’ll have something new and exciting to tell.

In case you are the festival organizer and wish to have a previous upload (by someone else) removed, changed or replaced (for example with an official poster), you can contact us and we will respond and act asap.

Your privacy

We like our privacy and we totally respect yours.

If you upload content on our website, your email address is the only personal information we ask for. It will only be used to send you an email to confirm your upload and to inform you whether your upload is approved or refused after validation. After that it will automatically be removed from our database. Unless you opt-in to receive an occasional message about the website.

Data given to us will thus never be sold to third parties.

As an ordinary visitor of our website you are free to enjoy and endlessly scroll all those beautiful festival posters without any registration. Having the possibility to share content through your own social media channels, the interaction with these social platforms is entirely at your own risk.

Who are ‘we’?

So we don’t keep track of personal information about you as a visitor or user of our website (except for the upload confirmation/validation process).

But maybe you’re wondering who we are?

Well, we are three Belgian freelancers. Two of us (Robbie & Chris) are a creative advertising/concept team, active under the name KOPSTOOT.

Together with Ben (Thinc.be), our web developer/designer and UX/UI specialist, we created the website ‘Music Always Survives’.

We hope you will like it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
Now go scroll, click, share, support, repeat.
