TERMS AND CONDITIONS

PLAIN ENGLISH VERSION:

We, the owners of this website and all the backing tracks contained herein, own all the rights to everything you find here. When you purchase a backing track, you are actually purchasing a license to use that track. YOU DO NOT OWN IT. You agree not to resell the track or do anything else with it that we don’t want you to do, including recording your own version of the track and selling that version. By using this website and purchasing our backing tracks, you automatically agree to everything listed in the Legalese Version.

You are allowed to use these backing tracks for practicing and for your performances. That’s it. You can make a demo recording to advertise your gigs but you can’t sell the recording for a profit.

You have to make sure you’re not breaking any laws in your local area by using these tracks. We’re not responsible for anything if you break any laws by using these backing tracks.

We’re in the United States. If there are any disagreements about anything between you and us, we’re going to deal with it under U.S. law.

We’re going to send you emails from time to time. If you don’t want to receive them, you can opt-out.

There are some other points in the legalese below, but those are the main points. Please contact us immediately if you have any questions or need further clarification about anything.

No other rights are granted by the license.

The nominated licensee may use Pro Backing Track’s backing tracks for the purpose of creating ‘demo’ recordings; however, any commercial release, sale or trade of any recording utilizing any portion of a Pro Backing Tracks backing track requires the expressed written consent of Pro Backing Tracks.
