By registering as a User and using the services offered by CreaCollect.com, you are declaring complete acceptance without reservations of these here “Terms and Conditions of use”, which we therefore ask you to read in detail with attention.

Description of the Service CreaCollect.com is a web platform that allows you to deposit and protect music works in digital format, to which the holders of such rights may associate licenses for use and distribution (as an example, and not exhaustively: Creative Commons licenses, Copyright, etc.).

Protection takes place by means of digital timestamping, an IT procedure by means of which a temporal reference, which can be opposed to third parties, is attributed to an IT document.

When a music work is deposited online, CreaCollect.com releases:
* a certificate of authorship that contains the personal data of the author as indicated at the time of deposit, together with some identification data of the work being deposited, including the distribution license chosen at the time of filing/deposit and a unique CreaCollect.com license number;

* an archive containing the original music work and the declaration of authorship referred to in the previous point;

* a timestamp, that has a legal validity of 20 years, which, accompanied by the archive containing the original work referred to in the previous point, certifies with certainty of date and time, the moment the work was filed/deposited on CreaCollect.com.
