We offer the unique platform “KollektivX” that allows You to create projects for the joint purchase of physical media that are not available digitally for their subsequent digitization and sale.
Some portions of the Platform will be free of charge, others may cost money or have other requirements. The requirements or fees for any portion of the Platform will be clearly explained and separately agreed to when You implement those portions, if any.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MAY OWN A DIGITAL COPY OF THE ITEMS AS LONG AS YOU OWN THE PHYSICAL MEDIA. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR COPYRIGHT COMPLIANCE. You must not use the Archival Copy for any other purposes except for Your own personal enjoyment, study and research. Any unauthorized use of copyright protected material (including by way of reproduction, distribution, modification, adaptation, public display, public performance, preparation of derivative works, making available or otherwise communicating to the public) may constitute an infringement of third-party rights. Any such infringements may also result in civil litigation or criminal prosecution by or on behalf of the relevant rights holder.
You gain access to use the Platform by self-registration with Your username, email, password, country of residence. You can manage Your account settings (e.g., username and password). You may change Your password at any time.
You must keep Your account credentials confidential and not share them with anyone else. You will promptly notify the Company if You become aware of any compromise of Your account credentials.
The Company may suspend Your access to the Platform if You breach these Terms or if Your actions risk harm to other users, the security, availability, or integrity of the Platform. Where practicable, the Company will use reasonable efforts to provide You with prior notice of the suspension.
The use of the Platform functions and the calculation of the Project cost is carried out in Koins. 1 Koin equals to 1.00 Euro. The Koins are not digital currency or electronic means of payment. The term is used solely for the convenience of the Platform Users. All payments are made in Euros.
Purchase of Koins is carried out through the PayPal system or other payment service as may be offered by the Platform. After selecting the number of Koins, You will be redirected to the PayPal website (or such other payment service website) to validate Your applicable account and presented with a billing agreement. After committing to the billing agreement, the Koins will be credited to the User's personal account on the Platform.
To start fundraising for the purchase of an Item, You need to create a Project.
The Project is created by the Founder filling in the information about the Item in the corresponding section of the Platform and paying for a certain number of Cuts in the Project as will be offered on the Platform at that time.
After a Project is created by the Founder, the Project goes through moderation. As a result of moderation, the Project can be rejected without providing any reasons. If the Project is rejected as a result of moderation, the Koins will be returned to the Founder's personal account in full. For example, the grounds for rejection of the Project may be the availability of a digital edition of the Item, or inconsistency with the rules of the Platform.
During the moderation phase, the Company may change the description of the quality of the Item in the Project, as specified when the Founder created the Project, if there is a reason to believe that the stated quality does not correspond to the actual state of the Item.
After moderation, the Project opens and Users (Contributors) can purchase Cuts in the Project.
The maximum cost of the Project is formed (including maximum shipping cost and maximum possible taxes) at the Project’s creation.
The collection of Koins for the purchase of the Item is made on the basis of the maximum cost of the Project.
The actual cost of the Project is determined at the stage of purchase the Item from the seller.
The difference between the money raised and the actual money spent on the Project will be returned to the Contributors after the Item is resold.
The Company has the right to use the difference between the cost of the Project paid by the Contributors and the funds actually spent on the Project to cover additional expenses incurred during the implementation of the Project.
The cost of the Project consists of the cost of the Item, shipping cost, shipping taxes, the cost of the Archival Copy(if any), the Company's commission and insurance, and may include other fees as the Company will notify You.
If the Project does not raise the required number of Koins within the time period set forth on the Project's web-page, the Project is closed and the Koins are returned to the accounts of the Contributors.
If the Item is withdrawn from sale, the Project is closed and the Koins are returned to the accounts of the Contributors.
If the collection of Koins for the Project is completed, and the Item was purchased but lost in transit, the Company provides a full refund of Koins to the accounts of the Contributors.
If the Item is of inadequate quality, there are two options, one of which is chosen by a vote of the Contributors:
You can refund money deposited by You on the Platform via the application system.
You can have only one active withdrawal request.
The Company may reject User's withdrawal request if there is no technical possibility to carry out the transfer, or if the amount of funds specified by the User in the request does not correspond to the possible amount for withdrawal by the User.
The Company may charge a fee for processing the refund application. The amount of the Company's fee will be indicated additionally on the Platform.
The Company provides audio archival services. The Company uses commercially reasonable efforts to get the best possible Archive Copy for the certain quality of the Item. The Company is not responsible for the quality of the Archival Copy meeting any of Your expectations.
The Company may insert identifiers in the metadata accompanying the digital copy of the Item that uniquely identifies it as the copy You received from the Company.
