The monitoring results can be accessed on the MusicDNA website (www.musicdna.com) during the service period. The right to access expires at the end of the service period. Nevertheless, BACH grants access to the last report data for another eight weeks after the expiration date.
Songs can be activated for monitoring in two ways, either by selecting them from the MusicDNA database or by uploading the audio file. If a piece of music is uploaded before 19:00 UTC, its fingerprint is generated and loaded into the system by 4:00 UTC the next morning. The monitoring then starts from the moment of successful loading. If the fingerprint generation fails (due to damaged audio files etc.), the song is marked as inactive on the "Manage Songs" page.
Depending on the service package booked, the CLIENT can deactivate active music pieces after a minimum monitoring period and replace them with others (SWITCHING). BACH is only obligated to provide detection data for the time a piece of music was activated.
BACH reserves the right to modify or adapt the metadata displayed (artist, title, ...) on the music pieces.
BACH reserves the right to adapt or change the display of metadata (artist, title, ...) of music pieces.
The list of stations in active monitoring can be viewed after the login under Help → Monitored Channels (https://monitoring.musicdna.com/monitoredchannelsScreen). If a station is not included, its admission into the system can be suggested by email. Bach then checks the technical requirements for this radio station and, if possible, includes it in the monitoring system. The final decision on the inclusion of a station into the monitoring is incumbent on Bach, there is no obligation for an inclusion.
BACH guarantees >94 % availability of the reporting system and the corresponding website. Regular maintenance times will be announced on the website three days in advance.
BACH achieves a generally high level of service and ensures the correctness of detections. Nevertheless, the availability of radio stations for active monitoring also depends on their reception via satellite or as a web stream, etc.. BACH is not responsible for technical problems caused by third parties, e.g. short-term transmission interruptions due to technical problems of a radio station.
