No Refund Policy
Your satisfaction with each downloadable ringtone is very important to us and we proudly stand behind our service. We do our very best to support both our Buyer’s and Publisher’s. However, because our ringtones are digital goods delivered via Internet, email, and in our apps, and then downloaded, you have taken ownership of the digital item, so we offer NO REFUNDS or EXCHANGES, as it can not be returned. Sometimes there are situations outside of our control and a customer refund is necessary, such as a fraudulent transaction.
We take no responsibility and offer no refunds or exchanges if you purchase a ringtone and then ask for a refund because you don’t like it, change your mind, or any other reason that is not outside your control. Once the ringtone file has been purchased, all sales are final.
A refunded purchase will result in a Publishers commission earned being revoked (canceled/refunded), which will result in the restriction and securing of the ringtone content from being re-downloaded again by the customer. Revoked (canceled/refunded) commissions are not payable to Publishers and will be displayed in the Publisher Dashboard, under Revoked Earnings and Revoked Sales, on the Earnings page and Sales & Stats page.
Subscriptions can be canceled at any time. Please note, that you must cancel your Subscription before it renews, at least 24 hours prior to renewal, in order to avoid being charged for the next weekly, monthly, or yearly Subscription Fee. If you cancel your Subscription, the cancellation will become effective at the end of the then-current weekly, monthly, or yearly Subscription period.
Refunds will not be provided for any Subscription. We do not provide refunds, credit, points, exchanges, or prorated billing for Subscriptions that are cancelled prior to the renewal date. In most circumstances, you will continue to have access to your Subscription until the end of the weekly, monthly, or yearly billing cycle, based on your Subscription. Please note, that each circumstance is unique and the election to make such an offer in one instance does not obligate us to do so in another.
You agree that the audio and artwork content submitted is copyrighted and owned by you and/or you have obtained all the necessary and applicable rights to distribute and sell your ringtone audio for users to purchase and download for their own non-commercial and personal use on an iPhone, iPad and/or Android device. You agree that all trademarks, service marks, graphics, artwork, music, ringtones, alarms and alerts are the properties of their respective owners.
Any uploaded content that we deem to be inappropriate, contain or suggest hate, nudity, or any other content we deem to violate it’s terms and conditions, will be revoked and deleted. Continued misuse or any other violation and/or harm to Ringtone Radio and/or iPlayTones, LLC through your submissions, may result in your Publisher account being suspended.
IMPORTANT: If you do not upload an m4r and mp3 file with your submission, such as only submitting two mp3 audio files, your submission will be revoked, deleted and you will need to resubmit your ringtone again. If you copy and paste a URL to a ringtone file on another website, your submission will be revoked, deleted and you will need to resubmit your ringtone again. You must upload an m4r and mp3 file from your computer.
We may, but have no obligation to, monitor, review, edit or remove content that we determine in our sole discretion are unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene or otherwise objectionable or violates any party’s intellectual property or these Terms of Service.
You agree that your ringtone submission will not violate any right of any third-party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, personality or other personal or proprietary right. You further agree that your ringtone submission will not contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive or obscene material, or contain any computer virus or other malware that could in any way affect the operation of the Service or any related website. You may not use a false email address, pretend to be someone other than yourself, or otherwise mislead us or third-parties as to the origin of any ringtone submission. You are solely responsible for any ringtone submission you submit and its accuracy. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for any ringtone submission submitted by you or any third-party.
Publishers who upload and submit ringtones, please review our Ringtone Radio Podcasts section below.
Feature My Ringtones and Artists
Publishers can pay to feature their own ringtone(s) and artist(s) on the RingtoneRadio.com website and in our “Ringtone Radio” iPhone, iPad and Apple TV apps.
Login and go to your Publisher Dashboard to feature your own ringtone(s) and artist(s) today!
“Ringtone Radio” Podcasts
The “Ringtone Radio” podcasts will soon be heard on RingtoneRadio.com on our Podcasts page, iTunes, Apple’s “Podcasts” app (iPhone/iPad), and on several other networks/platforms, such as in our apps (to be announced/released soon).
Publishers who upload and submit ringtone audio files are giving permission and authorization to Ringtone Radio and iPlayTones, LLC to promote and distribute their approved and live ringtone(s) in our “Ringtone Radio” podcasts, for non-commercial use, anytime, all royalty free, and with no compensation to you, for the use of your ringtone(s) in our podcast episodes.
To opt out and not have your ringtones promoted or featured in our Ringtone Radio podcasts, do not upload/submit any ringtones.
The purpose of each podcast episode is to promote new, hot, top selling, and featured ringtones from different Publishers and offer promotional or discount codes, created exclusively for our podcast listeners. This can all potentially help Publishers gain more exposure and earn more sales, which increases their earnings. All ringtones used and heard in our Ringtone Radio podcasts will remain in the podcast episode(s) for the lifetime and existence of our podcasts and any podcasts that listeners download for free, regardless of whether you remove or delete your ringtone(s) from sale or delete your entire Publisher account.
All “Ringtone Radio” podcasts, streamed or downloaded, via our website, in our apps, iTunes®, or anywhere our podcasts are available, are for non-commercial use and can not be edited and/or used as a ringtone!
If we promote your ringtone(s) in our Podcasts, you will receive credit in the podcast episode title. Ringtone Radio and iPlayTones, LLC reserve the right to select which ringtone(s) to promote for free on the Ringtone Radio podcasts. Only a select handful of ringtones will be chosen to be promoted in each podcast episode.*
*Be advised, that listeners can subscribe and download the Ringtone Radio podcasts for free and listen to them at anytime, on computers, phones, tablets, and many other audio devices. To help protect your ringtone audio in the Ringtone Radio podcasts, an audio watermark will heard over the ringtone sound. Ringtones may be heard in small snippets, such as a few seconds and/or up to the full length of 30 seconds maximum.
Commissions, Earnings and Payouts
Publishers receive a 50% Commission rate for each ringtone sale. Commission rates remain the same for all ringtone sales associated with your Publisher account. Commission rates do not change when a discount or promotional code is used for the purchase of your ringtone(s). However, the total purchase price of the ringtone may decrease due to a customer applying a discount or promotional code at the time of purchase, which would slightly decrease the total commission earned for the ringtone purchase.
Example 1: Your ringtone costs $0.99 USD and you have a 50% commission rate. A customer buys one ringtone with no discount or promotional code. Your commission rate remains 50% and you would receive an approximate commission of $0.50 USD for this ringtone sale.
Example 2: Your ringtone costs $0.99 USD and you have a 50% commission rate. A customer buys one ringtone with a discount or promotional code (10% off 1 ringtone). Your commission rate remains 50%, but you would receive an approximate commission of $0.45 USD for this ringtone sale, due to the 10% discount or promotional code used at the time of purchase.
Commissions are paid out on the 15th of every month. At this time, there is no minimum payout amount. There are no PayPal fees for receiving your payouts with a United States PayPal account. International PayPal accounts (outside of the United States) may receive a PayPal fee with their payout, per PayPal’s policy.
All commissions generated from completed purchases that are 60 days or older and have not been revoked, refunded, canceled and/or charged back to the customer, will receive an earnings payout (on the next available payout date).
Example 1: If your ringtone generated a completed purchase on May 4th, then your unpaid earnings would be paid on July 15th.
Example 2: If your ringtone generated a completed purchase on May 15th, then your unpaid earnings would be paid on July 15th.
Example 3: If your ringtone generated a completed purchase on May 25th, then your unpaid earnings would be paid on August 15th.
We must wait a minimum of 60 days before processing any unpaid earnings to avoid any fraudulent and/or disputed transactions from customers and/or issued from PayPal. As stated in our No Refund Policy section above, sometimes there are situations outside of our control and a customer refund is necessary. This results in your earnings for that sale to be revoked (canceled/refunded) and removed from your unpaid earnings. For more information, please refer to the No Refund Policy section above.
Audio, Visual and Text Content Withdrawal
We may discontinue selling and delete any ringtones and their contents, such as images and text, at any time, in our sole discretion, and for any reason. Upon written notice to us, or upon your knowledge, that any audio, visual, or text content may be subject to a claim of infringement of a third party’s right, we will remove the ringtone(s) and its contents from sale as we investigate the legitimacy of the infringement claim.
After our investigation has been completed and all legal documentation has been provided to us to confirm the ringtone(s) legality, we may place the ringtone back on our website, live, and for sale, or if we find the ringtone(s) have infringed a third party’s right, we will discontinue selling and delete the ringtone(s) and its contents permanently from our servers and databases. We may require you to immediately, and at your own expense: cease using the ringtone and delete or destroy the ringtone audio file.
We may provide you with access to third-party tools, over which we neither monitor, nor have any control, nor input.
You acknowledge and agree that we provide access to such tools “as is” and “as available” without any warranties, representations or conditions of any kind and without any endorsement. We shall have no liability whatsoever arising from or relating to your use of optional third-party tools.
