1 - STREAMING PLATFORM

How does it work?

Streaming is a form of audio transmission through a computer network, without the need of audio or video content downloads. The reproduction device receives and reproduces a transmission instantaneously to the listener, without storing the data itself.

Through streaming, the information is transferred in a continuous flow of data through a server. A decoder is any specific player or plugin that works as part of an internet browser. The server, the information flow, and the decoder work together so that people can listen to live or pre-recorded transmissions.

1.1 - Live Streaming

Requirements for good quality streaming:

  • A good physical structure, a computer properly configured and a sound card, if you wish to use one.
  • The computer used for streaming must have the correct and updated sound card drivers installed for all the available functions to work.
  • The use of broadband internet (ADSL, CABLE or FIBER-OPTIC network) is recommended for streaming. 3G, 4G, radio wave and satellite connections are unstable; therefore RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC does not offer technical support in case of failures in the transmission such as cuts in the audio or buffering.
  • It is important to know the speed of the internet connections used for streaming, since it is impossible to guarantee streaming without cuts or failures in slow internet connections.
  • We recommend a speed and stability test of your connection to check if they meet the requirements for streaming.

The RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC servers do not allow transmissions in higher bitrates (audio quality) than those offered with the subscribed plan.

1.2 - Streaming through Auto DJ

All RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC streaming plans include Auto DJ.
The Auto DJ feature includes storage space for audio files aimed for streaming. The amount of storage space is set depending on your choice of contracted streaming plan.

Only files in MP3 (.mp3) format can be stored, other formats are not allowed. It is not allowed to use the storage for any other purposes other than storing MP3 files for Auto DJ use.

The Auto DJ is an on demand streaming tool. Its use for storage and backup of audio files is not allowed.

Attention: After a file is sent to the Auto DJ storage, it is not possible to download it.

Though RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC makes safety backups of your system, this cannot be guaranteed, RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC cannot be held responsible in case of catastrophic data loss from the CLIENT's part, and under no circumstances will copies of sent files be provided to the CLIENT.

1.3 - Additional Services

Additional Services will be made available through contracting the streaming plan and they cannot be used separately or individually. Payment of the streaming service is essential for availability of these additional services, with the exception of the web domain which requires a separate registration from the streaming contract.

1.3.1 - Website

RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC provides to its CLIENTs, who subscribe a streaming service, a full website, free of charge.

1.3.2 - Web Domain Registration

RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC provides domain name registration (.com and .net) at promotional price to be used with the website hosting service provided with the subscription plan, upon payment of the registration fee specified in the subscription form. The domain refers to the ADDRESS through which the website will be accessed, it is not the website itself.

The domain name is registered with a partner company, one business day after the payment settlement. Due to the payment settlement period, or in the event that the chosen domain is not available, RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC will notify the CLIENT, who will have the option of choosing another domain name or receive a refund.

If the website is no longer used, the domain can, at the criteria of the CLIENT; be used on another hosting service (pointing the nameservers), upon request; or have your domain name transferred permanently. In the event that the CLIENT chooses to renew the domain through RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC, without using it for a RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC service, the renewal will be charged in full, not at the promotional price.

RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC reserves the right to not register a domain name when it is identified that it is not for use in the website hosting service provided with the subscription plan.

The CLIENT will be held responsible in the event of any potential lawsuits or arbitration procedures, as well as possible penalties that may result from them for misuses of, personal names, corporate names, or any other term that may refer to a person or corporate name, character or any piece of work protected by right of ownership or the violation of industrial or intellectual rights in rights.

RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC does not assume responsibility, and will not provide help in any sense (material, technical, legal or financial) in the event of arbitration procedures or legal lawsuits in any country.

RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC will exercise its 'right to recourse' if sentenced to pay any amount of money resulting from CLIENT misconduct, or any of its representatives.

1.3.2.1 - Domain Name Renewal

The domain names are renewed every 12 months, upon payment of the renewal fee. As it is an international extension, the renewal fee price may fluctuate due to the exchange rate of currencies. The renewal fee will be charged in local currency, when the local currency is available, or in a currency previously chosen by the client.

1.3.3 - E-mails

To use the email service, it is mandatory that the subscribed plan has this feature, in addition, the Website must have a domain name configured. Each email account has 1GB of disk space for storing messages and the number of email accounts depends on the chosen plan.This service uses a shared server and all users are expected to behave well to ensure its full operation.

1.3.3.1 - Prohibited practices and behaviours

  • SPAM: is defined as the sending of unsolicited e-mails. In addition, unsolicited emails are increasingly ignored by recipients and increase the rejection of email providers against the companies that send them. Thus, even commercially, spam is something to be repudiated.
  • Transactional email: emails sent automatically, usually related to some service (password recovery, billing, etc.).
  • Marketing emails: newsletter, promoting content and related emails.

In the event of a violation of the policies above, the customer will be notified and the email service suspended for 24 (TWENTY-FOUR) hours. In the event of a repeat offense, the email service will be canceled.

In case of cancellation of the email service, we recommend that you use your own service for this purpose.

It is allowed to send transactional or marketing emails using external tools or services, which do NOT use the email service provided by RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC.

In the case of spam, this rule is also valid even if RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC SMTP servers are not used to send emails, but were sent with the purpose of publicizing a website hosted on our servers.

1.3.4 - App

RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC, at its own criteria, provides a smartphone app in some plans, and as an additional feature in plans that do not have it by default, upon prior negotiation.

1.3.4.1 - Publishing the App

The App will be published onto the app store according to the contracted plan, Google Play for android apps and the Apple App Store for Apple Apps.

The app store has its own policies to publish a new app, where it strictly forbids unauthorized use of content protected by right of ownership and the copy of another app or service.

The CLIENT's app submission will be made through the app store, where it can be approved or not.

In some cases, RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC will request a signed and digitized document from the person responsible for the radio, informing the app store the SERVICE PROVIDER (RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC) is authorized to submit and upload an app on the CLIENT's behalf. The submission and upload of the app depends on this document; in the absence of said document, the app will not be provided.

If the app is not approved, RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC will do what is possible to aid the CLIENT in publishing the app. However, RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC cannot guarantee the approval of the app, since RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC does not take part evaluating apps submitted to their respective app stores.

1.3.4.2 - Removal of apps

Each app store holds control over the app and can, unilaterally, remove it without notice. If this occurs, RADIOBOX/BRLOGIC will contact the CLIENT so they can make the necessary adjustments, in which case another app can be published. App store approval cannot be guaranteed.
