Each Download (as defined below) Product is an individual sale and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

15. Charges and Billing.
Beatport currently accepts American Express, Visa, Master Card, JCB and PayPal. Beatport does not accept cash, money orders, or checks. Beatport reserves the right to change this policy at any time.

You, not Beatport, are responsible for any unauthorized amounts billed to your credit card by a third party. As a cardholder, your card issuer agreement governs your use of the designated card, and as such, you must refer to that agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. Obligation to pay for Product orders previously accepted by Beatport will survive your termination of your Account. Due to the nature of the service, refunds are only available in exceptional circumstances at Beatport's management's sole discretion.
Beatport accepts the following currencies: US Dollars, Euro, British Pound and Australian Dollar. The currency displayed and accepted for each individual purchase is solely based on your territory of sale and cannot be modified by the end user.

D. Beatport Hype Terms and Conditions
Please read these Beatport Hype (“Hype”) Terms and Conditions (“Hype Terms”) carefully before signing up and purchasing access to Hype. By participating in, and signing up for, Hype, you are agreeing to be bound by these Hype Terms. If you do not wish to be bound by these Hype Terms, please do not participate in Hype.
1. Hype Terms and Conditions
These Hype Terms are applicable to all participating suppliers, labels, and artists on the Hype platform. All of the general terms and conditions set forth above are incorporated herein. All purchases of content available on Hype shall be governed by the general terms and conditions, as it pertains to the customer. If there is any conflict between those general terms and conditions and these Hype Terms, these Hype Terms shall apply.
2. Monthly Fee
The monthly fee for Hype participation is as follows: $9.99 USD / €9,99 EUR / £7,99 GBP / $14,99 AUD. Currency dependent on location of purchase. Monthly fees may be subject to change. Promotional discounts may apply. Subscription month starts on the day of purchase and renews, or terminates, on the same day the following month. Hype refreshes every 24 hours; it may take up to 24 hours before label content appears on the Hype charts (if eligible).
3. Label Eligibility for Hype
Hype represents an opportunity for Beatport’s smaller labels to get recognized, and chart, on Beatport’s platform. It’s also an opportunity for consumers to more easily discover new content that has yet to breakout. Hype is available only to those labels that have grossed up to, but not more than, fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000 USD) in the trailing calendar year, from the date of sign up. Beatport reserves the right to reduce this amount for certain genres on Hype. Your registration for Hype is only valid for the specific label identified on your registration.
If, at any time after sign-up, a Hype label exceeds fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000 USD in the trailing calendar year, Beatport reserves the right to disqualify such label from the Hype platform at the end of the subscription month where such sales are exceeded (or when Beatport is alerted of the fact that label is no longer eligible for Hype).
Beatport reserves the right to disqualify any label from Hype if it believes that label does not fit the spirit of this program. For example, if a well-established artist creates a new label for a new project featuring that artist, or artists of similar stature, the label will not qualify for Hype. Likewise, if Beatport has any reason to believe that sales for a label are being manipulated in order to gain a higher position on the Hype charts, Beatport reserves the right to disqualify that label from future participation on Hype.
4. Hype Genres
At this time, Hype is only available for the following genres: Techno, Tech House, House, Deep House, Melodic House & Techno, Drum & Bass, Minimal, Trance, Progressive House, Psy-Trance, Dance, Electro Pop, Indie Dance, Mainstage, Organic House, and Downtempo. If you are a label that provides content to Beatport in various genres, only that content identified as one of the aforementioned genres will be eligible for Hype participation. Additional genres may be added to Hype at a future date.
5. Termination from Hype
All monthly fees are non-refundable once paid. Any termination will be effective as of the next renewal date.
6. Hype Charts
The Hype charts are solely based on authentic, organic sales. Beatport reserves the right to exclude any sales from its Hype chart calculations that it believes, in its sole discretion, were made for the sole purpose of inflating sales and manipulating chart position.
7. Promotional Benefits of Hype
Beatport will provide select marketing or promotional support for Hype participants. Promotional and marketing opportunities may change. Please see https://hype.beatport.com for the current opportunities being offered. Labels selected for Beatport marketing and promotional opportunities are solely at Beatport’s discretion.
