Access to the site and the Service

The site is accessible to all Users free of charge and anonymously. However, access to the site’s Service is reserved exclusively for Users who have registered an account.

All Users must have Internet access subscribed by any means with the provider of their choice and be at least 18 years of age. Users acknowledge that it is their own responsibility to obtain the IT tools and Internet access necessary to use this site, and that they are personally responsible for any costs arising therefrom.

All IT resources used to access the site are the personal responsibility of the User, who is responsible for taking all measures and taking all necessary steps to ensure the security of his or her IT tools and the data stored on them, in particular with a view to avoiding any risk of contamination by viruses and any risk of intrusion by third parties.

PianoConvert implements the technical solutions at its disposal to allow continuous and optimal access to the site with a minimum availability rate of 90%. With regard to access to the site, the User acknowledges that the reliability of transmissions is uncertain due, in particular, to the heterogeneous nature of the infrastructures and networks on which they circulate and that, in particular, breakdowns or saturations may occur, which may lead to temporary interruptions of the site. PianoConvert cannot be held responsible for such interruptions, although it undertakes to do its utmost to limit interruptions within its control. The User acknowledges and accepts that PianoConvert may freely, without compensation or prior notice, make all or part of the site temporarily unavailable, in order to carry out updates or improvements to the site, or to make changes to its servers, or any other action required to ensure the proper functioning of the site.

Likewise, PianoConvert cannot be held responsible in the event of malfunctions on the site resulting from problems with the User’s computer equipment or Internet connection.

You retain all rights to the Content You submit to the Service. You grant PianoConvert and its service providers the right to temporarily store and edit your Content to the extent necessary to provide the Service to You. Submitted Content will be stored for a maximum of 30 days before being deleted from PianoConvert’s servers.

PianoConvet is not responsible for the incorrect transcription of the Content if it does not comply with the qualities of these General Terms and Conditions or is not of good quality. 


Content removal

Audio files uploaded by users belong to them and are made available to them only. All Deliverables displayed by PianoConvert are created automatically by PianoConvert’s transcription algorithm and may be corrected by users or professional music transcribers. No third-party Deliverables are displayed or used in any way by PianoConvert. Each Deliverable is created specifically for the user concerned. Copyright owners who do not wish transcriptions of their works to be displayed by PianoConvert may request the removal of individual songs or composers from the PianoConvert website by sending an e-mail to contact@latouchemusicale.com. However, the removal of songs and composers should not be considered as an acknowledgement of responsibility on the part of PianoConvert.

Deliverables are hosted for 30 days after transcription and will be deleted thereafter. 

Transcription quality

All PianoConvert transcriptions are created automatically by the PianoConvert transcription algorithm. Consequently, perfect transcription quality cannot be guaranteed, and quality may vary depending on recording conditions (e.g., but not exclusively, noise, reverberation, echo) and the complexity of the piece of music. PianoConvert is designed to transcribe recordings of solo piano pieces. The presence of additional instruments or voices in the recording leads to poorer results.

PianoConvert’s obligation is limited to the best of its ability. However, in the event of defective transcriptions, you can help us improve the algorithm by contacting: contact@latouchemusicale.com
