5. Third-Party Content & Sites
Descriptions of, or references to products, services or publications within the Sites do not imply endorsement by StageAgent of that product, service or publication. The Sites may include links to other sites that are not maintained by StageAgent. Websites of those third parties are subject to terms and conditions different from those found here and it is your responsibility to ensure that you have read and understood them. StageAgent is not responsible for the content of those sites, does not endorse those sites, and makes no representations whatsoever concerning the content or accuracy of such other sites. If you decide to access any third party site, you do so entirely at your own risk, and you may be exposed to offensive, indecent or objectionable content. StageAgent shall have no liability for any loss or damage arising from your use of any such sites.
StageAgent takes claims of copyright infringement seriously. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law. If you believe any materials accessible on or from the Sites infringe your copyright, you may request removal of those materials (or access to them) from the Sites by submitting written notification to our Copyright Agent (designated below). In accordance with the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512) ("DMCA"), the written notice (the "DMCA Notice") must include substantially the following:
Our designated Copyright Agent to receive DMCA Notices is:

If you fail to comply with all of the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the DMCA, your DMCA Notice may not be effective. Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Sites is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
If you believe that material you posted on the Sites was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification with us (a "Counter-Notice") by submitting written notification to our copyright agent (identified below). Pursuant to the DMCA, the Counter-Notice must include substantially the following:
Completed Counter-Notices should be sent to:
Estage Enterprises, Inc. 210 Sylvan Way Emerald Hills, CA 94062 Phone: 408.782.4307 firstname.lastname@example.org

It is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.
7. Right of Publicity
Please be aware that celebrities, and sometimes others, may have a "right of publicity," which means that they may have a right to control commercial uses of their name, image, likeness, and other aspects of their identity. Although you may be a fan, you risk infringing celebrity rights if you use a celebrity name or likeness on the Sites and you don't have the celebrity's permission. StageAgent reserves the right to remove any content contained in or posted to the Sites that StageAgent determines in its sole discretion does or may allegedly infringe another person’s copyright, trademark, celebrity material or other rights.

You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password and you agree you will not sell, transfer or assign your user account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, if any, and for restricting access to your computer so that others may not access any password-protected portion of the Sites (including the Paid Services) using your name, user name or password in whole or in part.

10. Subscription Terms, Fees and Payments; Automatic Renewal & Cancellation.
(a) Billing Terms Applicable to Both StageAgent.com and StageAgent.org. The following payment terms apply to all subscriptions offered and sold by StageAgent.com and StageAgent.org:
** (i) Payment & Billing.** When you initially subscribe to the Paid Services, your credit or debit card will be charged immediately for the initial term of the subscription at the then-current fee for the applicable subscription period.
You will be charged in advance for the renewal term of the subscription service (or initial term, in the case of a renewal following the expiration of an applicable free trial) on your applicable billing date (the "Billing Date"), which will be the corresponding monthly, quarterly or annual anniversary of the activation date of your subscription. If, however, the activation date of your subscription (or, as applicable, your free trial) is on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and your Billing Date does not exist in a particular month because there are fewer than thirty-one (31) days in the month payment is due, your Billing Date for that particular renewal (or initial term, in the case of a renewal following the expiration of an applicable free trial) will be on the last day of the month in which your Billing Date would otherwise be. Each charge on the applicable Billing Date applies to the subscription period immediately following the Billing Date (e.g., a charge for a monthly subscription applies to the month immediately following the Billing Date). You understand that any applicable sales or use taxes will be payable by you, and may be included in each periodic statement.
StageAgent may, in its sole discretion, suspend access to your account or deactivate your account without notice to you if StageAgent is unable to process your payment or if payment is past due, regardless of the amount. You agree to pay any outstanding balance in full within thirty (30) days of cancellation or termination of your subscription. You may update any of your billing information (including a change to your desired billing payment method) through your account settings on StageAgent.com or StageAgent.org.
All fees and charges incurred in connection with your user name(s) and password(s) will be billed to the credit or debit card you designate during the registration process. If you want to designate a different credit or debit card or there is a change in your credit or debit card validity or expiration date, you must update your information through your account settings on StageAgent.com or StageAgent.org.
BY COMPLETING THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO THE PAID SERVICES:
(iii) Unauthorized Charges. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU, AND NOT STAGEAGENT, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY WHICH WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
(iv) Billing Discrepancies. Unless you notify StageAgent of any discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your payment statement, they will be deemed accepted by you and you release StageAgent from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any such error or discrepancy.
(b) Additional Billing Terms Applicable to StageAgent.com Subscriptions. The following terms apply to subscriptions offered through StageAgent.com:
(i) Fees Subject to Change. From time to time, StageAgent may change the fees and charges then in effect by giving you notice prior to the changes going into effect. StageAgent will also post current fees online at https://stageagent.com/signup.
(ii) Cancellations. You may cancel your paid subscription on StageAgent.com at any time through your account settings page. Cancelling via your account settings will stop all future renewal charges and you will retain access to Paid Services until your subscription expires. Upon cancellation via your account settings, you should receive an email confirming your subscription cancellation. If you do not receive an email confirming your subscription cancellation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that your cancellation has been successfully processed. You may also simply email your cancellation request to email@example.com. For StageAgent.org subscriptions, see section C below for additional billing terms.
(iii) Refund Requests. Monthly subscriptions are not eligible for a refund during the billing month in which the cancellation request is submitted, but can be cancelled to prevent additional future monthly charges. For quarterly and yearly subscriptions you may cancel prior to renewal to prevent future renewal charges and you may also email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel during the first five (5) days after renewal to be eligible for a full refund on the renewal payment. If the cancellation occurs after the cancellation window, or if the charge was for a monthly subscription renewal, you will not receive a refund. If you cancel your subscription but are not eligible for a refund, you will retain access to StageAgent.com until your subscription expires.
(c) Additional Billing Terms Applicable to StageAgent.org Subscriptions. The following terms apply to subscriptions offered through StageAgent.org:
(ii) Cancellations. You may cancel your subscription in accordance with the terms of your institution’s license agreement or by contacting email@example.com.
(iii) Refund Requests. Refund requests may be made by filing a customer support ticket at https://help.stageagent.org, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the full name and email address associated with the account. Your request must be received by end of business (5:00 p.m. Pacific Time) on the appropriate day as described above, or earlier.
