The Services are always evolving and the form and nature of the Services may change from time to time without prior notice to you. In addition, Resonate Recordings may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage at our sole discretion at any time without prior notice to you.
The Services may include advertisements, which may be targeted to the content or information on the Services, queries made through the Services, or other information.
