On receipt of the licensing agreement duly signed by the authorised dealer, YAMAHA will communicate an access code with which the authorised dealer can then buy from the YamahaMusicSoft. Communication of the access code constitutes the conclusion of the agreement. After successful registration, access to the Yamaha account is possible at any time via email and code.

Data that have been downloaded for customers may NOT be saved in any database or server system of the authorised dealer, in fact they must be deleted after the downloading and copying procedure.

On principle multiple­usage of any download data whatsoever is prohibited and in case of violation will lead to immediate cancellation of this agreement without notice.

An invoice (order confirmation) will be provided directly after each order.

The authorised dealer makes notification of any complaints/differences at the latest within 12 weeks after the download, complaints received after this period cannot be considered.
