Important point to take into consideration before creating your own Music on Hold recordings
The Company allows the Customer to choose and broadcast the music of its choice while its clients are in a calling queue, to the express condition that Customer disposes 
of the proper licenses and rights to such music. 

By broadcasting music, the Customer warrants that it owns or disposes of the proper rights and licences to broadcast such music, and that it understands that the Company 
does not own any rights and licences to broadcast the  music, but only provides a feature for the Customer to do so. 

In the event of a third-party claim directly or indirectly related to queue music provided by the Customer, Customer will defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Company 
from any and against any and all claims.
