    The Services are for the personal use of Members only and may not be used in connection with any commercial endeavours except those that are specifically endorsed or approved by Music Match. Illegal and/or unauthorized use of the Services, including collecting usernames and/or email addresses of Members by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email is prohibited.

    There are three categories of membership described below. Music Match reserves the right to expand or ammend these categories at it's sole discretion. By accessing the Music Match all Members and Visitors are agreeing to these terms.

    • Job Seeker Membership

      You are entitled to enter, in prescribed form, your profile information (the "Information") on to a Web Page on our Website (the "Website"). On payment of our Service Fees you shall be entitled to our "Subcription Service." Under the Subscription Service we shall make the Information you provide available to other Members of our Site, including registered Employers. In addition the subscription Service shall also allow you full access to information posted on the site by registered Employers and allow you to note your availability for work.

      In respect of those subscribing for the Subscription Service we agree to use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Website is available [24 hours a day] (the "Service"). In the event that this is not possible we shall endeavour to rectify any problem as soon as reasonably practical.
