Welcome to WellSaid Labs Inc. (“WellSaid”, “WellSaid Labs Inc.”, “We”, “Us” or “Our”) Terms of Service (the “Terms”). We have created a proprietary method that allows you to create synthetic voices. We love to see what our customers create with this technology. Our service is designed to give you complete ownership of the audio files created and the content you contribute to create the audio files.
Please read these Terms carefully because they govern your use of our website www.wellsaidlabs.com (the “Site”) and the services and products available at or through the website. If you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To make these Terms easier to read, the Site, and our products and services and are collectively called the “Services.”
By accessing, installing or using our Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, it’s simple: do not use the Services.
We reserve the right to modify the Terms and our Services at any time, in our sole discretion. While we are not required to provide notice we will post a notice to changes on our website. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because continuing to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site indicates to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. The date of last revision will be shown at the top of this page. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then please discontinue use of the Services immediately. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice to you, at our sole discretion.
In order to access and use the Services, you will need to create an account (your “Account”). By creating an Account, you become a “User” and represent that you are eighteen (18) years or older and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.
Your Account should be yours – don’t use the Services under the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, or use a username that is subject to rights of another person without appropriate authorization. We have a strict “No Robots” policy. You must be a human to use the Services and an automated account is not allowed. This policy also applies beyond Account creation to the general use of the Services. “Robot” (or automatic) activity is not allowed.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false or misleading or to reclaim any username that you create through the Services that violates Our Terms. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and Account, and agree to notify Us if your password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. You are responsible for activities that occur under your Account.
We encourage you to regularly change your password to help ensure your account’s security.
Since we empower our customers to manage and configure their own content for use, we cannot be held responsible for any breach of data, infringement of proprietary information, customer information, content, or other data. Ensuring the security of that data is your responsibility. If you suspect a data breach or suspicious activity please report it to us immediately.
Accounts will be billed monthly starting on the day you sign up and then every thirty days thereafter. If you upgrade your Account plan, you will be billed immediately upon upgrading and then on that date on every month thereafter. Each bill paid ensures your access to portions of the Services that require payment for the next month. There are no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open Account. We treat everyone equally, so no exceptions will be made.
Downgrading your Account may cause the loss of Content or features available to you at your current plan. WellSaid is not, and will not be held to be, liable for such loss. If you exceed your Account plan’s limits (e.g. you have created more audio files than allotted), your access may be restricted and you will need to upgrade to the next available plan.
If your billing method expires or changes, and you do not edit or update your billing information or cancel your account, we will send you a single courtesy notice regarding billing information discrepancies. If you fail to provide us with updated billing information more than three (3) days after notice is sent, WellSaid reserves the right to disable and terminate access to your account. You authorize us to continue billing during this notice period, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Our services allow you to generate audio files with synthetic voices dictating the text you have supplied. The synthetic voices themselves are proprietary of WellSaid Labs however, the Audio Files (in MP3 format) are provided to you for your own or commercial use provided you are in compliance with these terms including payment obligations. For clarity, You retain ownership in the audio files with a non-exclusive limited license to the embedded synthetic voice technology.
We welcome feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Services. You can submit feedback by emailing us at email@example.com. You grant to Us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license under any and all intellectual property rights that you own or control to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon and otherwise exploit the feedback for any purpose.
For purposes of these Terms, “User Content” means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, works of authorship of any kind, and information or other materials that are posted, generated, provided or otherwise made available by you. You are solely responsible for the User Content that you post to the Services, including its legality, reliability, and appropriateness.
You represent and warrant to us:
Your User Content (i.e. text script) is yours (you own it) or you have the right to use it and to grant Us the limited rights and license as provided in these Terms;
Your posting of User Content on or through the Services does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights, consent rights or any other rights of any person.

WellSaid will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid by any user.
We claim no intellectual property rights over the material or content you provide to or on the Service. Your Content remain yours.

However, you grant Us a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, worldwide license to use any User Content submitted by you to improve our services, troubleshoot matters, and general data analytics. We will not use such content for promotional purposes.
We encourage you to participate in our community (when available), but ask that you respect other Users just like yourself when posting User Content to, and otherwise using, the Services. Regardless, we do expect that any time you are using the Services, you agree NOT to:
use language or transmit User Content through the Services that may be considered offensive or profane. This includes profanity and offensive images, or other media containing obscene, sexually explicit, or excessively violent content.
harass or threaten other Users through the Services. Harassing behavior and language includes insults, ethnic and homophobic slurs, defamatory statements, invasive statements that may infringe on a User’s privacy, or the transmission or sharing of any content that may cause another user to experience ridicule, threat or discomfort.
submit content or material through the Services that violates a third party’s proprietary rights, including privacy and publicity rights, or that otherwise violates any applicable law;
publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage Us, Our Users or any third party;
publish through the Services, any private information of someone (like their address or phone number) without their permission;
submit material through the Services that is unlawful, non-consensual, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, harassing, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate; or
impersonate another person or represent yourself or your site as affiliated with Us, or Our staff;
This list is an example and is not intended to be complete or exhaustive. WellSaid does not pre-screen Content, and We don’t have an obligation to monitor your access to, or use of, the Services. We do, however, reserve the right to do so for the purpose of operating the Services, to ensure your compliance with these Terms, or to comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body. We reserve the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to your Account or any Content that we consider, in our sole discretion, to be in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Services.
You can remove your own User Content by specifically deleting it. We are not responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of the Content, nor are we responsible for any harm, including monetary loss or damage.

Federal law requires that your notification include the following information: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
