Most recent update: February 18, 2021
The domain www.purejingles.com (herein referred to as 'Site') is owned and operated by Van Huis Uit B.V., under its brand name PURE Jingles (herein referred to as 'we', 'us' and 'our'), a company registered in the Netherlands under Chamber of Commerce number 29049776 and VAT number NL 811048330 B01 with our registered office address being Lindenheuvel 3, 1217 JV Hilversum, (Kingdom of) the Netherlands.
Please read these terms & conditions (herein collectively referred to as 'Terms') carefully before placing an Order. Purchasing any Products on or through our Site means that you agree to be bound by these Terms.
We may modify, add, or remove any part of the Terms at any given time. Each change is effective immediately upon posting. Your continued use of this Site and/or your purchase of any Products following the posting of changes to the Terms means that you also accept the changes. We always recommend to check our Terms before placing your Order.
We've made every reasonable effort to accurately display our Products on the Site, however this presentation is for illustrative purposes only.
You may not purchase any Products from the Site if you are below the age of 18 years. If you are younger, please ask your parent or guide for necessary permission and let them place the Order on your behalf.
6.1 These Terms will become binding on you and us, and an Agreement will come into effect between you and us, by your ordering of Products on this Site and/or through a PURE Jingles sales representative.
6.2 If there is any conflict between these Terms and the terms of the order, then the order terms will take priority.
6.3 If you have already ordered and paid for a Product and we are unable to supply you with a Product because the Product is no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date, we will notify you as soon as possible.
8.2 You shall not have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation against us based on any statement in this Agreement.
8.3 Except as expressly stated in these Terms, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Products. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for your purposes.
9.1 Your legal right to cancel an Agreement starts from the date on which you receive the Order Confirmation.
9.2 If you wish to cancel an Agreement with us, you can notify us about your decision within 24 hours after you have received the Order Confirmation in order to receive a refund.
9.3 However, you cannot cancel an Agreement in below cases:
a) When ordering any of our Products in Instant Download categories (e.g. from our 'PURE Sounds' webshop) - products that are available for you to download immediately after purchase. This is due to the fact that the digital product once purchased cannot be physically returned. However, you can sample each Product by listening to excessive demos available on each product page; a great indication of the Product itself.
b) You have received a Processing Notification from our production manager and/or our creative team, in which case the creative process has started and we have therefore already incurred costs of making the Product for you.
c) When your Product has been completed and/or delivered.
10. Revisions and Refunds
10.1 To cancel an Agreement in accordance with clause 9 above, you should email our customer service team at [email protected] (or email your PURE Jingles account manager) within 24 hours after you have received the Order Confirmation in order to receive a refund. Please include the initial Order Confirmation and other necessary information to review your request.
10.1.1 Your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email.
10.1.2 If you wish to contact us for any other reason, including because you have any questions, requests or complaints, you should email our customer service team at [email protected] (or email your PURE Jingles account manager)
10.1.3 We will contact you or give you notice by email or by prepaid post to the address you provided us with your order.
10.2 If you cancel your Agreement, we will:
10.2.1 refund the full price paid if the Production has not commenced.
10.2.2 refund you full price paid minus accrued expenses should you cancel after the processing of your order has started. We are obligated to pay our creative talent (voices and producers) for all work done, regardless if it will be used or not. So if your order is already processing and you decide to cancel, you have to accept that the full refund will not longer be possible.
10.2.3 provide no refund if the order has been already completed and delivered (or in case of Instant Download has been already completed and downloaded by you). We will work with you to make any reasonable amendments to the order, however our service is not something you can simply “give back” and all products are made to order, which makes returns a little more challenging.
10.3 If you have returned the order because there are faults or because the final Product is not as described or ordered, we will provide one free of charge revision to your order.
10.4 Refunds will be made to you on the credit card or bank account used by you to pay.
10.5 If a Product has been delivered to you prior to your decision to cancel your Agreement then please see the respective clauses within these Terms.
10.6 As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by your right of return and refund in this clause 10 or anything else in these Terms. You can seek advice on your legal rights from your local citizens' advice bureau or trading standards office.
10.7 If you wish to make a change to an order that has been already completed, we will calculate the fee based on the changes needed. The minimum charge will be 25% of the originally paid fee.
10.8 Regarding our Instant Downloads (such as music beds, sound effects, and other production elements or jingle packages or parts thereof) that are available for you to download immediately after purchase:
10.8.1 You may request a full refund if you have changed your mind after purchase and have not accessed the download (as we can determine whether download has been made).
10.8.1 Once the Instant Download has been downloaded, you no longer have ability to return it (digital products cannot be physically returned). You are able to sample each Product by listening to excessive demos available on each product page, which is a great indication of the Product itself. Our team will however consider each case on individual basis. So please contact our customer service team at [email protected] (or email your PURE Jingles account manager) to talk about this further.
11.1 For all Products that are not Instant Downloads, we will let you know the estimated delivery date after we have received from you (a) Agreement Signature, (b) Production Prepayment (usually it's 50% before Production and 50% before Delivery; sometimes it's 100% before Production, depending on the Product) and (c) Creative Brief, and after we have scheduled the production. As an indication, and always depending on the Product, the Deliverables and the current schedule, our standard production timelines are anywhere between 3 and 6 weeks after receiving (a), (b) and (c). For all Products that are an Instant Download, delivery is instant upon receiving Full Payment (100% before Delivery).
11.2 Delivery dates may occasionally be affected by Circumstances Beyond Our Control as mentioned in clause 15 below.
11.3 Order Delivery shall be deemed to be completed when we deliver the Product to the email address given by you, and you will be responsible for the Product from that time.
11.4 Upon receipt of full payment (including all applicable delivery charges) you will be the owner of the Product within the applicable License, which depends on the Product.
11.5 If we fail to deliver a Product within 90 days after receiving (a), (b) and (c) as mentioned under 11.1 above, then you may cancel your Order straight away if any of the following applies to you:
1. we have refused to deliver the Product;
2. delivery within the delivery deadline was essential considering relevant circumstances, and you made it clear at the time of placing the Order; or
3. you informed us prior to acceptance of your Order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.
12. Price and Delivery Charges
12.1 Prices of the Products are specified on our site and confirmed on the checkout page, or communicated by our account managers and specified in our written Quotations. We may change our prices any time, but that will not affect the prices for confirmed Orders.
12.2 Our prices are exclusive of VAT (Value Added Tax). The correct VAT rate will be displayed on the checkout page, or communicated by our account managers and specified in our written Quotations and Invoices.
12.3 Despite our best efforts, there may be incorrect prices on some of the Products. If the Products' correct price is lower than the price communicated on our site or in our written Quotation, the lower amount will be charged. If the Products' correct price is higher than the price communicated on our site or in our written Quotation, we will inform you of this and ask whether you wish to continue with the Order with the actual higher price. If the error in price is obvious, unmistakable and the mispricing could have been reasonably recognised by you, we will not be liable to provide the Products to you at the lower price that was incorrect.
