The ANOTHERSLICE service is a marketplace that enables Creators to make available their Podcasts and also enter into paid for Transactions with Users. In its capacity as the provider of the ANOTHERSLICE service, ANOTHERSLICE does not sell or license the Podcasts as provided by Creators.
When Users access Podcasts and / or Users and Creators enter into a Transaction, they are dealing directly with each other. ANOTHERSLICE is not a party to this licence or Transaction. It is the Creator that is licencing the Podcasts and entering into the Transaction, not ANOTHERSLICE.
The Creator is solely responsible for their Podcasts and the consequences of their actions and any issues with the Podcasts. For example, if a Creator changes or cancels a Podcast, any refund obligations belong solely to the Creator. ANOTHER SLICE has no responsibility in relation to refunds, and are under no obligation to become involved in any dispute between a User and a Creator.
License / Permissions FROM THE CREATOR relating to the Podcast content
When a Podcast is made available to a User, the Creator grants the User a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to access the Podcast for personal, private and non-commercial use only, and Podcasts may not be shared with anyone else.
Podcasts may be available for download and offline listening. The User is recommended to download content as this protects any relevant purchase in the event of service failure or other access issues.
Except for the above permissions, no right, title or interest will be transferred to the User. In particular the User agrees to not: copy, reproduce, distribute or use the Podcast other than as expressly set out here; sell, transfer, lease, modify, distribute or publicly perform the Podcast in any manner; modify, edit, version the Podcast, or otherwise create any derivative works from the Podcast.
All prices for Podcast Purchase and Podcast Subscriptions are determined by the Creator. Payments are processed by ANOTHERSLICE on behalf of the Creator.
In the case of Podcast Purchases the User makes a one off payment and will be able to stream or download the Podcast for as long as it is available on the Platform.
In the case of Podcast Subscriptions the User makes a monthly auto renewing payment and will be able to stream or download, or otherwise access, the bundle of content made available by the Creator for as long as it is available on the Platform.
All Podcast Subscriptions run from the start of a calendar month (prorated if the User subscribes part way through a month) and will automatically renew at the end of each calendar month, unless the User cancels their Podcast Subscription before the end of the then-current month. The cancellation will take effect on the last day of the current month. The User will not be entitled to any refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods relating to a cancelation made during a month.
Cancelations and Refunds
A User has fourteen (14) days after an online purchase to change their mind and cancel for any reason, but must pay for the services provided up until the time of the notification that they have changed their mind. However, the User also expressly consents to the providing of the service immediately following any purchase, and that they will lose the right of cancellation once any streaming or download has begun.
Removal or Suspension Of Podcasts – DOWNLOAD RECOMENDED
In the event any Podcast is removed, suspended or ceases to be available from the service, or access to the service is suspended or terminated for any reason, the User may cease to have access to any purchased or subscribed to Podcasts. The User is encouraged to download its own copies of the Podcast in accordance with the functionality of the service to help avoid any loss of access in these circumstances. Creator (and ANOTHERSLICE) will not be liable if a Podcast becomes unavailable and has not been downloaded.
