Auto-Renewal of Membership
Your subscription to the applicable subscription on the Service will automatically renew at the end of your Subscription Term continuously and indefinitely without action by the member, and the membership fee is charged to the member at the time of renewal. An enrollee whose membership fee has been paid is entitled to all privileges included in the membership until the membership is cancelled by the enrolled member as set forth in the paragraph below. By providing your payment method information for your subscription, you are agreeing to pay a subscription fee, that will automatically renew, at the then current rate, unless you cancel prior to the expiration of the current Subscription Term, and any applicable taxes and service fees (collectively, "Fees").
The Fees will be charged to your original payment method automatically at the beginning of your Subscription Term, and at the beginning of each renewal Subscription Term thereafter on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your current Subscription Term, unless you cancel your subscription or your account is suspended or terminated pursuant to these Terms. The renewal Subscription Term will be the same length as your initial Subscription Term unless otherwise disclosed to you at the time of sale. The rate for the renewal Subscription Term will be the then current subscription-rate.
The Fees charged to your payment method may vary from Subscription Term to Subscription Term due to changes in your subscription plan or applicable taxes, and you authorize Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) to charge your payment method for these amounts. Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) reserves the right to change the pricing of subscriptions at any time.

If there are any discrepancies in billing, you hereby waive your right to dispute such discrepancies if you do not notify Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) within sixty (60) days after they first appear on an account statement.
Cancellation of Membership
A member will have the right to cancel your subscription at any time upon notice to Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) by email at [email protected] or by visiting (configuración) to manage your subscriptions. Cancellation of initial membership any time after purchase will result in forfeiture of the membership fee. To avoid a late cancellation fee or forfeiture of the membership renewal fee, membership should be cancelled prior to the end of the then current Subscription Term. Upon cancellation, the member loses access to the areas of the Service designated for members only. This could include any credit and other data and analyses that have been displayed during your membership.

You represent and warrant that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary legal authorization to do so.
YOU, AND NOT HIT MUSIC ACADEMY CORP (THEHIT.COM), ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY UNAUTHORIZED AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY.

As stated above, you will be responsible for, and your credit card or third-party payment account may be charged for, the payment of all fees associated with orders already processed or shipped before your cancellation/change request or a request to terminate your account was received.

Community Usage Rules
As a user of the Service, these Community Usage Rules ("Rules") are here to help you understand the conduct that is expected of visitors of the Service's online forums and work spaces ("Communities").
Nature of Rules. Your participation in the Communities is subject to all of the Terms, including these Rules:
Your User - Generated Content. All of your User-Generated Content either must be original with you or you must have all necessary rights in it from third parties in order to permit you to comply with these Terms and any Additional Terms. Your User-Generated Content should not contain any visible logos, phrases, or trademarks that belong to third parties. Do not use any User-Generated Content that belongs to other people and pass it off as your own; this includes any content that you might have found elsewhere on the Internet. If anyone contributes to your User-Generated Content or has any rights to your User-Generated Content, or if anyone appears or is referred to in the User-Generated Content, then you must also have their permission to submit such User-Generated Content to Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) (for example, if someone has taken a picture of you and your friend, and you submit that photo to Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) as your User-Generated Content, then you must obtain your friend's and the photographer's permission to do so.).
Speaking of Photos. No Pictures, Videos, or Images of Anyone Other Than You and Your Friends and Family. If you choose to submit photos to the Service, link to embedded videos, or include other images of real people, then make sure they are of you or of you and someone you know - and only if you have their express permission to submit it.
Act Appropriately. All of your Service activities must be venue appropriate, as determined by us. Be respectful of others' opinions and comments so we can continue to build Communities for everyone to enjoy. If you think your User-Generated Content might offend someone or be embarrassing to someone, then chances are it probably will and it doesn't belong on the Service. Cursing, harassing, bullying, stalking, insulting comments, personal attacks, gossip, and similar actions are prohibited. Your User-Generated Content must not threaten, abuse, or harm others, and it must not include any negative comments that are connected to race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or physical handicap. Your User-Generated Content must not be defamatory, slanderous, indecent, obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit.
Do Not Use for Commercial or Political Purposes. Your User-Generated Content must not advertise or promote a product or service or other commercial activity, or a politician, public servant, or law.
Do Not Use for Inappropriate Purposes. Your User-Generated Content must not promote any infringing, illegal, or other similarly inappropriate activity.
Be Honest and Do Not Misrepresent Yourself or Your User - Generated Content. Do not impersonate any other person, user, or company, and do not submit User-Generated Content that you believe may be false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, or misleading, or that misrepresents your identity or affiliation with a person or company.
Others Can See. We hope that you will use the Communities to exchange information and content and have venue appropriate discussions about job search-related issues with other members. However, please remember that the Communities are public or semi-public and User-Generated Content that you submit on the Service within a Community may be accessible and viewable by other users.

If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner's) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Service, then you may send us a written notice, using this form that includes at minimum all of the following information:
a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;

your electronic or physical signature.
Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives that are submitting using the following form:
It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification.
Without limiting Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM)' other rights, Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer's access to the Service and any other website owned or operated by Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM).
Counter - Notification. If access on the Service to a work that you submitted to Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the following address:

By email: [email protected]
Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:

your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the username of your account;
a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and your electronic or physical signature.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Service. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.

Certain portions of this Paragraph L are deemed to be a "written agreement to arbitrate" pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) agree that we intend that this Paragraph L satisfies the "writing" requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
First - Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Service, the Content, your User-Generated Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, "Dispute"), or to any of Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM)' actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an "Excluded Dispute", which includes those actions set forth in Paragraph L(1)(b), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Paragraph L. Your notice to us must be sent via email to [email protected] For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM), in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
Binding Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Paragraph L (1)(a) (or agree to arbitration in writing with respect to an Excluded Dispute) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING BETWEEN YOU AND Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) (WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, STATUTE, REGULATION, ORDINANCE, TORT— INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FRAUD, ANY OTHER INTENTIONAL TORT OR NEGLIGENCE,—COMMON LAW, CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION, RESPONDEAT SUPERIOR, AGENCY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY), WHETHER ARISING BEFORE OR AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS, MUST BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. THIS INCLUDES ANY AND ALL DISPUTES BASED ON ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED THROUGH THE SERVICE OR ADVERTISING AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE. For U.S. residents, the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), not state law, shall govern the arbitrability of all disputes between Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) and you regarding these Terms (and any Additional Terms) and the Service, including the "No Class Action Matters" Section below. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, EACH PARTY IS GIVING UP ITS RIGHT TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD BY A JUDGE OR JURY. Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) and you agree, however, that the applicable state, federal or provincial law, as contemplated in Paragraph L(1)(f) below, shall apply to and govern, as appropriate, any and all claims or causes of action, remedies, and damages arising between you and Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) regarding these Terms and the Service, whether arising or stated in contract, statute, common law, or any other legal theory, without regard to any jurisdiction's choice of law principles. Any Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules ("Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), except as modified herein, and the arbitration will be administered by the AAA. If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling to set a hearing then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. ("JAMS") using JAMS' streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer or legal representative of Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) consent to in writing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required and you are a U.S. resident, then it will be conducted Austin, Texas. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Paragraph L to be enforceable, then Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator who will apply and be bound by these Terms and any Additional Terms, and will determine any Dispute according to applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions are for the court to decide. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms or the Service. You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows: AAA: 800.778.7879 and http://www.adr.org and JAMS: 800.352.5267 and http://www.jamsadr.com.
Limited Time to File Claims.TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH L(1)(A)) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES -- OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED. Commencing means, as applicable: (a) by delivery of written notice as set forth above in Paragraph L (a); (b) filing for arbitration as set forth in Paragraph L (1)(b); or Paragraph L(f) filing an action in state, Federal or provincial court.
Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Paragraph L will not apply to any legal action taken by Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Service, any Content, your User-Generated Content and/or Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM)' intellectual property rights (including such Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) may claim that may be in dispute), Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM)' operations, and/or Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM)' products or services.
No Class Action Matters. YOU AND HIT MUSIC ACADEMY CORP (THEHIT.COM) AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR AS AN ASSOCIATION. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. There shall be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving Disputes brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Paragraph L to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Paragraph L(1)(f). Notwithstanding any other provision of this Paragraph L, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained herein (described in this "No Class Action Matters" section), are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these class action waiver provisions.
Jurisdictional Issues. Except where arbitration is required above or with respect to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute arising hereunder may only be instituted in state or Federal court in Austin, Texas. Accordingly, you and Hit Music Academy Corp (THEHIT.COM) consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.
Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court of competent jurisdiction.
Governing Law. These Terms and any Additional Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with, and any Dispute and Excluded Dispute will be resolved in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions.
