If you create or administer a Page on Stagend.com, you agree to the next points:
The "booking tool" is the ensemble of tools that Stagend.com provides to "Entertainer", or "Organizer" with regards to organizing entertainment moments (Events).
As a Member, you may create Listings. To create a Listing, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Entertainer to be listed, including, but not limited to, live video, picture, description, setlist, email address, availability. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site, Application and Services, all Entertainer Page must have valid email address and a phone number. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Entertainment via the Site, Application and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once an Organizer requests a booking of your Entertainment, you may not request the Organizer to pay a higher price than in the booking request.
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 an Organizer's book at, an Entertainment in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as Booking Agency, Agent, Managers or other similar agreements, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Entertainment included in a Listing you post (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Stagend assumes no responsibility for an Entertainer's compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. Stagend reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Stagend, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.
If you are an Entertainer, you understand and agree that Stagend does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If an Organizer requests a booking of your Entertainment and book your Entertainment, any agreement you enter into with such Organizer is between you and the Organizer and Stagend is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Stagend serves as the limited authorized payment collection agent of the Entertainer for the purpose of accepting, on behalf of the Entertainer, payments from Organizers of such amounts stipulated by the Entertainer (including other fees and/or Taxes).
If you are an Entertainer, Stagend makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Entertainment. You acknowledge and agree that, as an Entertainer, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions.
Stagend recommends that Entertainers obtain appropriate insurance for their Entertainments. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Entertainment 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 Organizers (and the people invited to the Entertainment event, if applicable) while at your Entertainment.
Stagend may offer Entertainers the option of having photographers take photographs of their Entertainments. If you as an Entertainer choose to have a photographer do this, the photographs taken will be made available to you to include in your Listing with a watermark or tag bearing the words "Stagend.com Verified Photo" or similar wording ("Verified Images"). All images, materials and content created by these photographers provided by Stagend, including Verified Images, constitute Stagend Content, regardless of whether you include them in your Listing.
Other important points:
Stagend does not endorse any Member or any Entertainment. You understand that Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the Entertainment at the time the photograph was taken. Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by Stagend of any Member or any Entertainment. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although Stagend may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of users, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member's purported identity or background.
Any references in the Site, Application or Services to a Member being "verified" or "connected" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Stagend about any Member, including of the Member's identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site, Application and Services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to book an Entertainer or to accept a booking request from an Organizer, or to have any other interaction with any other Member. We are not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
By using the Site, Application 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. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Stagend 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 an Entertainer against Stagend regarding the remittance of payments received from an Organizer by Stagend on behalf of an Entertainer, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled "Limitation of Liability".
Bookings and Financial Terms
"Entertainment Fees" or "Gage" or "Cachet", means the amounts that are due and payable by an Organizer in exchange for the Entertainment. The Entertainer alone, and not Stagend, determines these amounts. The Entertainer may in his or her sole discretion decide to include in these amounts Taxes that the Entertainer determines that he or she has to collect. This Fee is exactly the sum Stagend.com will payout after the event. "Organizer Fees" or “Service fees”, means the fee that Stagend charges an Organizer for the use of its online platform, which is calculated as a percentage of the Total Fee. The Organizer Fees is included in the amount displayed to the Organizer in the discussion page, and will be displayed in the final invoice. "Total Fees" means collectively the Entertainment Fees and the Organizer Fees (plus any Taxes in respect of Organizer Fees, such as VAT in Europe).
Bookings and Financial Terms for Entertainers
If you are an Entertainer and a booking is requested for your Entertainment via the Site, Application and Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the booking request within the Booking Request Period, otherwise the booking request will be automatically cancelled.

If after a booking confirmation you are unable to perform, any amounts collected by Stagend for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Organizer’s account. When an Organizer confirm a booking, Stagend will send you an email, text message and/or message via the Application confirming such booking.

We can initiate the payout for the Entertainment Fees to the Entertainer within 24 working hours after the event and ONLY if we got the money on our bank account (for the invoice payment method scenario).. (except to the extent that a refund is due to the Organizer). The time it takes for the Entertainer to receive payouts may depend upon the method for receiving payouts chosen by the Entertainer. Some methods involve the use of third-party payment processors, who may impose their own additional charges for the use of their services on the Entertainer, including by deducting their charges from the payout amount.
Appointment of Stagend as Limited Payment Collection Agent for Entertainer
Each Entertainer hereby appoints Stagend as the Entertainer’s limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Entertainment Fees from Organizers.
