Under no circumstances may our players be resold or given away to any third party without prior written permission from StreamWithQ. Clients are limited to creating up to 1 player for their station(s). Services such as our player tools, or embedded API services (now playing etc) that are provided to clients by StreamWithQ to be embedded on a third party website or social network are substitute to a reasonable use policy of 200,000 player hits per month per user. Although this is not actively monitored, we may from time to time check to ensure users are not using an unreasonable amount of resources.

Failure to pay for services delivered may result in suspension of service and/or late payment fee’s in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debt Act (1998).

Support and Communications Policy
Customers who require technical support can contact us at any time via the support ticket desk, we aim to respond to all requests within 24 hours and most tickets are replied to and often resolved well within this timeframe. However, our standard products do not include any form of support time response guarantee unless otherwise specified. Corporate customers who require a dedicated account manager, or guaranteed response times should contact us to arrange a premium service level agreement. We regret that we are unable to provide technical support via other lines of communication such as telephone or live chat to clients on our standard support agreement. This is enforced due to the nature of our business and to ensure a fair level of service to the large number of customers who we serve.
Clients are expected to be courteous and professional in their communications to StreamWithQ. Under no circumstances will we tolerate any kind of verbal, physical, written or other abuse (including threats of abuse or retribution) of any StreamWithQ customer, employee, member, or officer will result in immediate account termination.
StreamWithQ agrees to offer support to clients only on topics directly relating to our services and our technical support team are there to assist clients with any problems directly relating to the availability or functionality of our service. Our support service does not cover generic computer or website advice. We always try to help clients as much as possible, however, it is important for clients to acknowledge that their hardware/software setup is unique and it is not always possible for our support technicians to offer 100% resolution of all problems. Clients are expected to do their own research and seek training on such matters.
To aid our customer service representatives, it is important for clients to include a clear outline of account information, system reference numbers and adequate details of any problems when submitting a request to our support department, with a detailed description and screenshots where required. Failure to do so may result in a delayed response and/or resolution times.
If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the matters contained herein. StreamWithQ may at any time revise these Terms and Conditions by updating this posting. You are bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to review the then current Terms and Conditions to which you are bound.
