2. Your use of our Services (Apps / Extra Contents)

2.1 App: Harmony City

Harmony City is a cross-platform educational learning app – made by musicians for music beginners and enthusiasts. The app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

The app uses video content from YouTube and does not store that content in its infrastructure. The app opens the video from the YouTube platform by using your browser from your device, which is shown during gameplay. The user will always need an active Internet connection, so the app doesn’t store any copyrighted content or media.

The app will just listen to the microphone to detect the chords or notes being played by the user in sync with the video, and decide if they are correct.

As we want to figure out the best user experience, we pick songs which are suitable for most age groups and that work properly with microphone detection.

The app does not and, unless with explicit permission from the authors, independently distribute any copyrighted song or media content through its Services.

The user may only stream video contents from the YouTube platform that are not limited by YouTube (or other third-party platforms, i.e. region-restricted videos) or for which he or she holds the rights of viewing and use (according to YouTube Terms & Conditions).

The user accepts to use the app for its own personal, non-commercial purposes only.

2.2 Apps: Flute Master, Rhythmic Village, Hello Music, Baby Composer

Flute Master, Rhythmic Village, Hello Music and Baby Composer are cross-platform educational learning apps. These apps are available on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Microsoft Store.

The apps will just listen to the microphone to detect the notes or sounds being played by the user and decide if they are correct.

These apps can, under certain circunstances, be unlocked through licenses (ID and Key).

Some functions are just available in the full / paid version.

2.3 App: Cornelius Composer

Cornelius Composer is a cross-platform sheet music editor, available on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Microsoft Store.

Some functions are just available in the full / paid version.

The app is able to import (MusicXML, MIDI) and export scores (MusicXML, MIDI, PDF). The user is obliged to view and access only content for which he or she has viewing / editing rights.
