Please read these terms and conditions carefully. These terms and conditions apply to your use of the UK Voices service. By requesting full access to the service by paying the stated fees, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set out below. If there is anything you do not understand please email any enquiry to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
a. We operate a service ("the service") enabling clients such as (but not limited to) advertising agencies, television networks, production companies, agents and directors ("Clients") to source people who have registered their voice and details on our database ("Contributors”), for use on voice over projects. b. You agree as a Client or a Contributor that your relationship with us ("the Relationship") will be subject to these terms and conditions which shall be exclusive of any other terms and conditions and shall be governed by English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
OUR OBLIGATIONS TO YOU
As a Contributor:
(a) the information agreed to be disclosed will be accessible on the database for the duration of the Relationship; and (b). We shall use our reasonable skill and care to ensure that information on the Database is accessible to clients. We reserve the right to remove any information supplied from you from the Database at any time. You acknowledge that the Database is subject to change from time to time and you will not be eligible for any compensation because you cannot use any part of the Database or because of a failure, suspension or withdrawal of all or part of any information or the Database. (c). We will take all reasonable precautions to keep your information secure, but unless we are negligent, we will not be liable for unauthorised access to information supplied by you. The Company makes only limited checks on its clients and cannot guarantee that access to the site is limited only to professions in the industry. The Company is not responsible for the well-being of contributors sourced by Clients from the Database. (d). All clients who use the service agree to pay a minimum of £50 per hour for all work offered to contributors. However, we accept no liability for the amount per hour to be paid to you if you accept jobs paid at less than £50 per hour. Any work conducted at less than £50 per hour is presumed to be as a result of negotiation between you and your employer. (e). You will have full access to apply for jobs advertised in our JobZone for the duration of our Relationship. (f) . Only members who have paid the annual fee via the website, not members who pay via SMS, will receive free membership of our other, related sites and will be able to enter the annual Voice of the Year competition.
As a client:
(a) Access to the service will be provided at our discretion, based on our assessment of your fitness to access the service. Any access can be withdrawn at any time (b) You accept that the database remains the property of UK Voices and it will not be used for any purpose other than to source individual voiceover artists for specific jobs. You further acknowledge that you will not contact any member of the UK Voices service for any reason other than to discuss existing voiceover jobs and projects. (c) Any breach of the conditions laid out in clause (b) will result in the immediate withdrawal of your access to the service. (d) You agree to pay a minimum of £50 per hour to clients for voiceover work. However, if a client agrees you may negotiate to offer a lower rate.
YOUR OBLIGATIONS TO US
a.. You will pay all fees owing to us on the due date for payment under the terms of the Relationship. b. As a Contributor you acknowledge and consent to the fact that all information with which you supply us may be posted on the Database for access and use by Clients (including their sharing such information with third parties) and we are not required to obtain the consent of any third party for this purpose. For the avoidance of doubt, we shall not post your personal information (such as addresses and telephone numbers) on the Database without having obtained your prior consent. c. You agree not to use the Database for any illegal purpose and agree to use it in accordance with all relevant laws. All information with which you shall supply us is accurate and not of a defamatory, offensive or obscene nature. d. You will not use the Database in any way which may cause the Database to be interrupted, damaged, rendered less efficient or in any manner that violates or infringes rights of third parties. e. You will not attempt any unauthorised access to any part or component of the Database and you agree that in the event that any claim or action against any other user of the Database arises out of your or their use of the Database, then you will pursue such right, claim or action independently of and without recourse to us.
Contributors will pay a fee to submit and place information on the Database for access by the Clients. You may pay us by any of the following methods: credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, Visa Delta, Switch, Solo, PayPal or such other card as we may otherwise agree); cheque or postal order made payable to "UK Voices", or by reverse-charged SMS text message. An annual member is a member who has paid by credit or debit card via the website or PayPal. A monthly member is one who pays by reverse-charged SMS. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer and we may share your information with such third parties as are necessary to enable us to do such checks. Fees for annual memberships are as stated on the payment page and are annually recurring at the price you paid in your first year. All charges are inclusive of VAT. If you have subscribed to SMS alerts these will occur every 11 days and are charged at £1.50. To end an SMS subscription, text STOP to 80182.
(a) Subject to these terms and conditions, the Relationship shall continue for as long as you continue to pay any fees owing to us for the provision of the Service.
(b) We may suspend or terminate the Relationship at any time with reasonable notice to you (unless we deem it necessary to terminate immediately without notice).
(c) You may request the termination of your membership and removal of your information from the database at any time. Your request must be in writing and addressed to us at our registered office and will not be effective until it is received. If you pay by SMS text, to cancel your membership, simply text the word STOP to 80182. As soon as we have received your request, you will be removed from the database and no further fees will be owing. You agree that no refund of any fees will be due to you in the event of your terminating your membership.
(d) If the payment of any fees by you is not made in accordance with these terms and conditions you will be deemed to have requested the termination of the Relationship.
Annual Membership entitles you to access to the Service for 12 months from the date your membership fee is paid.
Annual Membership entitles you to a money-back guarantee of your entire membership fee. In order to qualify for the money-back guarantee you must
apply for at least 2 voice over jobs every week via the UK Voices job line (as advertised on the JobZone page). You must
supply a full audition (that is, you must read out the full script for the job you are applying for) for both jobs. If, after supplying two full auditions a week, you are not chosen
as the successful candidate, who will make the final recording and be paid for that recording, for at least one job during your 12 month membership period, then you will receive a
full refund of your membership fee. The money back guarantee is only valid at the end of your first year of membership with UK Voices, and any request under the money back guarantee
must be received by UK Voices no later than 7 days after the date your initial 12 month membership has expired.
VOICE OF THE YEAR 2017
Prizes will be awarded at the judges' discretion and the judges' decision will be final. No correspondence will be entered into. Prizes will only be awarded if the judges consider the standard of any entry, when considered against the standard generally to be found in the voiceover industry, to be high enough to merit a prize.
