If you're using our Services for an organization, you're agreeing to the terms of this Agreement on behalf of that organization. By using or accessing the samples & services, you agree to all the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement. If at any time, you do not or cannot agree to the terms of this Agreement, you must stop accessing or using the samples or services. You are allowed to use the samples & services as long as you follow these terms. Your music is yours. This means that you keep the ownership of all your intellectual property rights in the Recording of your musical work that uses any sample, but please take note that this doesn’t mean you own any rights on any sample, even when they are incorporated in your Recordings.

The downloadable products we sell (presets, drum samples, MIDI, sound FX) can be used in your releases without paying any additional royalties to the rights owners. If there are ever any exceptions to this rule then the terms of the exception will be made very clear on the relevant product page. When you buy a product from us, the price includes a license to use the samples/midi/sounds/drums in your music releases, royalty-free. Please keep your receipt as proof of purchase. We want to make your samples experience as smooth and easy as possible. Therefore, under the terms of this Agreement, you’re given a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable, license to reproduce the Samples, with or without modifications, solely for their incorporation into your Recordings (as defined below), and to reproduce, distribute, transmit, publicly perform or display, communicate and make available to the public, and to otherwise use the Samples (with or without modifications thereto) solely as so incorporated into such Recordings, in all media and formats whether now known or hereafter created, including for commercial purposes (the “Samples License”). For clarity, this Samples License allows you to modify, reproduce, distribute, transmit, publicly perform or display, communicate and make available to the public, and otherwise use the Samples, but only to the extent they are used as part of your Recordings, and please be aware that it is your responsibility to own or have obtained all rights for any of your Recordings that incorporates our Samples. However, please respect that you may not use the name (including any pseudonym), image, or likeness of any artist (such as an author, composer, performer, or producer) or maker that has produced a sample in any way without that artist’s, maker’s or our prior written permission. For example, you may not include the term “featuring” with the name of an artist associated with asSample in the title of your Recording. Nothing in this Samples License gives you any permission to assert or imply that you are, or that your use of the Samples is, connected with, or sponsored, endorsed, or granted official status by, us, any artist that has produced a Sample, or anyone else.

You have a non-exclusive license to each sound that you download from Vandalism, meaning other users can also use the same sounds as you without infringing on any New Recording or Creative Works you create using that sound and vice versa. The use of sounds from Vandalism in your New Recording or Creative Work does not impact your ownership of that newly created content, however,  you don’t own the exclusive rights to those samples. Other Vandalism users can use the same sounds without infringing on your New Recording or Creative Work and vice versa.
We don’t restrict copyright registration for New Recordings or Creative Works you make using Vandalism, but recommend consulting your own legal counsel for further information on matters concerning copyright registration. All samples available on Vandalism are licensed to users non-exclusively, meaning multiple users can use the same sample in their own works without infringing on each other's intellectual property rights insofar as it pertains to that sample.

As a part of Vandalism, you may have access to samples that still MAY BE hosted by another party (Public Rights Organisations, Organisations, Unions). Any samples accessed trough Vandalism is accessed at your own risk, and you shall be solely responsible for any damage to your property. No advice or information, wheter oral or written, obtained from Vandalism will create any warranty not expressly made herein.
We obligate ourselves to work only with FREE artists, that don't have any agreement with PROs, Publishing, Unions or Record Labels. Our artists sell us 100% rights of their work. However you agree that it is impossible for Vandalism to monitor such contracts they could have and that you access these materials at your own risk.  However agreements between Vandalism and Artists say that Artists aren't allowed to copyright work for hire, orderd by Vandalism. You acknowledge and agree that the Vandalism is not liable, and you agree not to seek to hold the Vandalism liable, for the conduct of third parties, creators, companies including third party service providers, and operators of third-party websites or third-party applications, and that the risk of injury from such third parties rests entirely with you. We have no obligation to monitor, filter, remove or otherwise review any sample, content, other information, and materials provided by third parties (but we may at our sole discretion). We do not warrant in any way that the samples, and any content or other information and materials provided by third parties through our Sample Service are accurate, complete, legal, non-infringing, reliable, current, or error-free. For clarity, nothing herein affects any right we or anyone having rights in a Sample may have to seek remedies for your non-compliance with this license.

CUSTOM VOCALS - When you order custom vocals (Service/ VOCALS)  you have to declare 25 - 50 % rights to the writer, composer or singer.  You may not be able to use the Artist's name or credit him/her in the track itself. Before you use this vocal and publish a song that uses this vocal you should contact Vandalism to reach the Artist if she/ he wants to be featured in the title and credits of the song. We prohibit registering the song without contacting us or Artist first, as it may cause legal problems. Be aware that artists are composers, lyricists, and authors of the vocal performance, so they retain their rights until they decide otherwise. Keep in mind that Vandalism is only the platform providing an artist the opportunity to work with you on your song. All rights, royalty splits, and titles must be discussed between you and the artist. Vandalism merely facilitates contact with the artist by forwarding emails. All written contracts regarding the use of the vocal must be signed only between you and the Artist.

VOCALS+ : Please note, they aren't exclusive vocals, but limited only to a few clients. Therefore, it is prohibited from registering the vocal or the song with any content identification system. Vandalism will still be the owner of the vocal track and the ownership won’t be transferred.

PREMIUM VOCALS: These type of vocals are the only limited vocal samples we sell. Each Premium vocal is limited to one client. We don't restrict copyright registration for New Recordings or Creative Works you make using Premium Vocals, but recommend consulting your own legal counsel for further information on matters concerning copyright registration.
