To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Services to be listed, including, but not limited to, your location, musician genre, availability of the Services and pricing and related rules and financial terms. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Services via the Site and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Customer requests a booking of your Services, the price for such booking may not be altered, unless the Customer requires of you something more or less than what is represented in your Listing. In this case, you will have the opportunity, via the Site, to make the Customer a new offer, which the Customer can accept or decline. If the Customer accepts your new offer, you may not alter the price of that new offer.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Customer engagement, with Services in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Services included in a Listing you post and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Booktraining.com assumes no responsibility for a Trainer’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. Booktraining.com reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Booktraining.com, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site or Services.
You understand and agree that Booktraining.com does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as a Trainer. If a Customer requests a booking of your Services and retains your Services, any agreement you enter into with such Customer is between you and the Customer; and Booktraining.com is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Booktraining.com serves as the limited authorized agent of the Trainer for the purpose of accepting payments from Customers on behalf of the Trainer and is responsible for transmitting such payments to the Trainer. When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your services, including, but not limited to, requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your Services. Any Member wishing to book Services included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Trainer, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who retain your Services or are otherwise present at the place of Service at your request or invitation, excluding the Customer (and the individuals the Customer invites to the place of Services, if applicable.)
Booktraining.com recommends that Trainers obtain appropriate insurance for their Services. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Services carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Customers (and the individuals the Customer invites to the Services, if applicable) while providing your Services.
No EndorsementBooktraining.com does not endorse any Members or any Services. In addition, although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member’s purported identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Site and Services. Booktraining.com is not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
By using the Site or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Booktraining.com with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Trainer against Booktraining.com regarding the remittance of payments received from a Customer by Booktraining.com on behalf of a Trainer, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.
Bookings & Financial Terms
Bookings and Financial Terms for TrainersThe fees displayed in each booking are comprised of the Services Fees (defined below) and the Credit Card Fee (defined below.) Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Services Fees and Customer Fees. The Services Fees, the Customer Fees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Total Fees”. The amounts due and payable by a Customer solely relating to a Trainer’s Services are the “Trainer’s Fee”. It is the Trainer and not Booktraining.com which determines the Trainer’s Fees. The Services Fee may include a travel or late night fee or Administrative or Registration Fee, at the Trainer’s discretion. Booktraining.com charges an additional Credit Card Fee to Customers based upon a percentage of applicable Trainer’s Fees. The Credit Card Fees are added to the Trainer’s Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes). Booktraining.com will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation and will initiate payment of the Trainer’s Fees (less Booktraining.com’s commission (defined below)) to the Trainer within 24 hours of when the Trainer provides the Services agreed upon.
Booktraining.com charges an additional Credit Card Fee to Customers based upon a percentage of applicable Trainer’s Fees. The Credit Card Fees are added to the Trainer’s Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes). Booktraining.com will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation and will initiate payment of the Trainer’s Fees (less Booktraining.com’s commission (defined below)) to the Trainer within 3 working days from the online payment date or 24 hours of when the Trainer provides the Services agreed upon whichever comes later.
Appointment Booktraining.com as Payment AgentEach Trainer hereby appoints Booktraining.com as their limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Customers on behalf of the Trainer. Each Trainer agrees that payment made by a Customer to Booktraining.com shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Trainer and the Trainer will make the Services available to User in the agreed upon manner as if the Trainer has received the Trainer’s fees. Each Trainer agrees that, Booktraining.com may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Trainer and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Customer to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Customer that portion of the Trainer’s fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Trainer, Booktraining.com assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Trainer. At this time Booktraining.com does not charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you agree that Booktraining.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. In the event that Booktraining.com will start charging a fee for Listings, we will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.
Booking and Financial Terms for CustomersThe Trainers, not Booktraining.com, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Services reserved through the Site and Services. If you, as a Customer, choose to enter into a transaction with a Trainer for the booking of a Service, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Trainer and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Services imposed by the Trainer. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Booktraining.com, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Booktraining.com is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, Booktraining.com disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Booktraining.com is not a party to the agreement between you and the Trainer, Booktraining.com acts as the Trainer’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Trainer. Upon your payment of amounts to Booktraining.com which are due to the Trainer, your payment obligation to the Trainer for such amounts is extinguished, and Booktraining.com is responsible for remitting such amounts, less Booktraining.com’s Fees, to the Trainer. In the event that Booktraining.com does not remit any such amounts to a Trainer, such Trainer will have recourse only against Booktraining.com.
Security DepositsTrainers may choose to include security deposits in their Listings (“Security Deposits”). Each Listing will describe whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable Services. If a Security Deposit is included in a Service for a confirmed booking, Booktraining.com will, in its capacity as the payment agent of the Trainer, use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a pre-authorization of the Customer’s credit card in the amount the Trainer determines for the Security Deposit within a reasonable time prior to the date of service. Booktraining.com will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Trainers’ requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but Booktraining.com is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Trainers related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
Services FeesIn consideration for providing the Services, Booktraining.com collects service fees from Trainers and Customers (“Service Fees”). Service Fees are made up of two (2) components: (i) Credit Card Fees and (ii) a fee that is charged to the Trainer based upon a percentage of the amount of the Total Fees (“Trainer Payment Fees”). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Credit Card Fees. Trainer Payment Fees are deducted from the Total Fees before remitting the Trainer’s Fees to the Trainer, 3 working days after online payment is made or within 24 hours of the time of service whichever comes later. Credit Card Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees.
Balances will be remitted by Booktraining.com to Trainers via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
General Booking & Financial Terms
Cancellations & RefundsIf, as a Customer, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site and Services, prior to the date of Services, the cancellation policy of the Trainer contained in the applicable Booking will apply to such cancellation. Our ability to refund the Service Fees and other amounts charged to you will depend upon the terms of the applicable cancellation policy. Details regarding refunds and cancellation policies are available via the Site.
If a Trainer cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site and Services, (i) Booktraining.com will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Customer within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Customer will receive an email or other communication from Booktraining.com containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the Customer requests a booking from one of the alternative Listings and the Trainer associated with such alternative Listing confirms the Customer’s requested booking, then the Customer agrees to pay Booktraining.com the Total Fees relating to the confirmed booking for the services in the alternative listing, in accordance with these Terms. If a Trainer cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Customer, have not received an email or other communication from Booktraining.com, please contact Booktraining.com at admin@Booktraining.com.
TaxesYou understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. Booktraining.com cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Site and Services. Additionally, each Trainer is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. Where applicable, or based upon request from a Trainer, Booktraining.com may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Trainer.
Foreign CurrencyAs part of the Services, Booktraining.com may provide a feature through which Members may view Total Fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Total Fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official Total Fees for the Listings. If you (as a Customer) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Total Fees if your booking is confirmed by a Trainer. The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by Booktraining.com based on the payment method you select and the location of the Trainer in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Trainer to receive payment, Booktraining.com will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that Booktraining.com has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the “Applicable Exchange Rate”). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although Booktraining.com updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, Booktraining.com will retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the date your booking is confirmed and the date Booktraining.com makes payment to an Trainer.
