PanStage reserves the right to update and change these Terms from time to time, without notice or acceptance by you, so please check this page frequently for updates and changes.

By installing or using the App and/or Services in any manner, you (the ���User” or “you”) agree to be bound by theseTerms, and any and all other terms, policies or procedures, as such may be amended and published through the App or on PanStage’s website from time to time.

All matters relating to the collection of information, its usage by PanStage and the sharing thereof it is detailed in PanStage’s Privacy Policy, available here. http://pan-stage.com/privacy-policy.html The Basics: We aim to change the way music is created by providing a platform for players & singers to record their music with people. PanStage lets players and singers add layers of music on each others music creating an ever-changing music with the world richest musical instruments and vocals.  The PanStage environment consists of many diverse music stages, each of which has been launched by a user (each, a “Music Stage”). In general, if you launch a Music Stage by uploading musical content (see herein for lyrics-only content), you retain all rights to the content you submit and every user who adds a level of music to your content automatically grants you a license to make use the Music Stage in its newly-updated form. The opposite is of course also true – if you submit content to an existing Music Stage, you automatically give a license to the Music Stage owner(s) to freely use your content. And of course, every user is free to listen to any music on the site and submit additional layers of music created by him/her to any existing content in any Music Stage.
