You should read through all the Terms carefully. The Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and StageWing™. You are not authorized to use this Site unless you are at least 18 years of age and able to enter into legally binding contracts. We do not knowingly collect the information of anyone under the age of 18. If you arrived on the Site after having been redirected or otherwise clicking on another website, you agree that these Terms shall govern your use of this Site.
1. This is a Marketplace Site. StageWing™ is Not a Party to any Rental Agreement or other Transaction Between Users of the Site.
We urge all users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either listing DJ equipment or renting DJ equipment. StageWing™ does not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any DJ equipment listed on the Site. The Site provides an on-line marketplace to allow DJ equipment owners who advertise on the Site (each, a "provider”) to offer for rent in a variety of pricing formats, specific DJ equipment to potential renters (each, a "renter” and, collectively with a provider, the "users or members”). We also may offer online booking or other tools or services to allow users to communicate with each other and enter into rental agreements or other transactions.
StageWing™ is not a party to any rental or other agreement between users. This is true even if the Site allows you to book a rental or provides other ancillary products or services, as the Site may facilitate booking a rental or other tools, services or products, but we are not a party to any rental or other agreement between users. As a result, any part of an actual or potential transaction between a renter and a provider, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the equipment advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any review relating to any provider or equipment), the ability of providers to rent equipment or the ability of renters to contract for equipment are solely the responsibility of each user. You acknowledge and agree that you may be required to enter into one or more separate agreements, waivers or terms and conditions before making booking equipment and StageWing™ may place additional restrictions on your booking, equipment, or service.
Users agree that they are responsible for, and agree to abide by, all laws, rules and regulations applicable to their use of the Site, their use of any tool, service or product offered on the Site and any transaction they enter into on the Site or in connection with their use of the Site.
Providers further agree that they are responsible for and agree to abide by all laws, rules, ordinances, or regulations applicable to the listing of their rental equipment and the conduct of their rental business, including but not limited to any and all laws, rules, ordinances, regulations or other requirements relating to taxes, credit cards, data and privacy, permits or license requirements, as applicable. Please be aware that, even though we are not a party to any rental transaction and assume no liability for legal or regulatory compliance pertaining to rental equipment listed on the Site, there may be circumstances where we are nevertheless legally obligated (as we may determine in our sole discretion) to provide information relating to your listings in order to comply with requests from governmental bodies in relation to investigations, litigation or administrative proceedings, and we may choose to comply with such obligations in our sole discretion.
Providers who accept credit card, banking or other payment information from renters agree to properly handle and safeguard all such information in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements and best practices.
While we do take certain measures with a goal to assist users to avoid potentially fraudulent or other illegal activity of which we become aware, we assume no liability or obligation to take any such measures or actions. When we provide warnings or messages to users about any such activity, we do not warrant that such messages are accurate or that such messages will reach any or all users they should have reached in a timely manner or at all, or that such messages or measures will prevent any harm or otherwise have any impact.
2. Limited License to Use the Site.
Users are granted a limited, revocable non-exclusive license to access the Site and the content and services provided on the Site solely for the purpose of advertising DJ equipment, searching for DJ equipment, purchasing or researching (for the purpose of inquiring about purchasing) any of the products or services offered on the Site, participating in an interactive area hosted on the Site, or for any other purpose clearly stated on a Site, all in accordance with the Terms. Any use of the Site that is not for one of these purposes or otherwise in accordance with the Terms or as otherwise authorized by us in writing is expressly prohibited.
3. Unauthorized Uses of the Site.
The license to use the Site only extends to the uses expressly described herein. The license to use the Site granted to users in these Terms does not include any right of collection, aggregation, copying, scraping, duplication, display or any derivative use of the Site nor any right of use of data mining, robots, spiders or similar data gathering and extraction tools, or any other mechanism that will compromise user data without our prior written permission; provided, however, that a limited exception from the foregoing exclusion is provided to general purpose internet search engines that use tools to gather information for the sole purpose of displaying hyperlinks to the Site. "General purpose internet search engines” do not include websites or search engines or services that provide classified listings or DJ equipment rental advertisements, or any subset of the same or which is in the business of DJ equipment rental services or other services that compete with StageWing™.
Unauthorized uses of the Site also include the following, unless otherwise previously and specifically agreed to by StageWing™:
If you are aware of, or experience, any content, activity or communication through or in connection with the Site that appears to be in violation of the above restrictions, or in violation of any other provision of these Terms, we ask that you please inform us by contacting us as set forth under "Contact Us," or emailing us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Proprietary Rights and Downloading of Information from the Site.
The Site and all content and information on the Site are protected by copyright under applicable U.S. and international copyright laws and conventions and database rights. Users agree to abide by any and all copyright notices, information or restrictions contained in or relating to any content on the Site. Users may not copy, store or otherwise access the Site or any content on the Site other than for personal, noncommercial use (other than in accordance with a valid listing) without prior written permission from StageWing™. As part of the rental inquiry or reservation process, for your own personal, noncommercial use and not for further distribution, users may download, display and/or print one copy of any portion of the Site. Users may not modify the same, and users must reproduce our copyright notice in the form displayed on the relevant portion(s) of the Site that they desire to download, display or print.
6. Identity Verification.
StageWing™ does not assume any responsibility for the confirmation of each user's purported identity. We encourage you to communicate directly with a renter or provider through the tools available on the Site, though even this does not assure you of the identity of the person with whom you are communicating. We further encourage you to take other reasonable measures to assure yourself of the other person’s identity and, for renters, of the DJ equipment and relevant details of your booking or proposed booking.
You agree to (i) keep your password and online ID for both your account with us and your email account secure and strictly confidential, providing it only to authorized users of your accounts, (ii) instruct each person to whom you give your online ID and password that he or she is not to disclose it to any unauthorized person, (iii) notify us immediately and select a new online ID and password if you believe your password for either your account with us or your email account may have become known to an unauthorized person or otherwise compromised, and (iv) notify us immediately if you are contacted by anyone requesting your online ID and password. If we suspect any unauthorized access to your account, upon our request, you agree to promptly change your ID and password and take any other related action as we may reasonably request.
We discourage you from giving anyone access to your online ID and password for your account with us and your email account. However, if you do give someone your online ID and online password, or if you fail to adequately safeguard such information, you are responsible for any and all transactions that the person performs while using your account with us and/or your email account, including those transactions that are fraudulent or that you did not intend or want performed.
EACH USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT: (1) StageWing™ WILL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO ANY USER FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTION MADE USING THE USER’S ID OR PASSWORD; AND (2) THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR ONLINE ID AND PASSWORD FOR YOUR StageWing™ ACCOUNT OR YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT COULD CAUSE YOU TO INCUR LIABILITY TO BOTH StageWing™ AND OTHER USERS.
StageWing™, without notice to you, may suspend or cancel your listing at any time without receiving notice from you if we suspect, in our sole discretion, that your account with us or your email account is being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner.
7. Limitations on Communications and Use of Other Users’ Information; No Spam.
You agree that, with respect to other users' personal information that you obtain directly or indirectly from or through the Site or through any Site-related communication, transaction or software, we have granted to you a license to use such information only for: (i) Site-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, (ii) using services offered through the Site, and (iii) inquiring about or otherwise facilitating a financial transaction between you and the other user related to the purpose of the Site (such as inquiring about or booking DJ equipment or charging a personal credit card). Any other purpose will require express permission from the other user(s). You may not use any such information for any unlawful purpose or with any unlawful intent.
In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove their information from your address book or database or other records and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this provision, may you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without the consent of the other user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this provision. Further, you agree that you will protect other users’ personal information with the same degree of care that you protect your own confidential information (using at minimum a reasonable standard of care), and you assume all liability for the misuse, loss or unauthorized transfer of such information.
StageWing™ will not tolerate spam or unsolicited commercial electronic communications of any kind. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add a Site user, even a user who has rented DJ equipment from you or to you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without the user's express consent. You may not use any tool or service on the Site to send spam or unsolicited commercial electronic communications of any kind or in any other way that would violate these Terms.
8. Responsibility for DJ Equipment Listings, Reviews and Other User-contributed content; Participation in Interactive Forums.
StageWing™ has no duty to pre-screen content posted on the Site by providers, travelers or other users, whether directly contributed by the user or contributed by us or a third party on behalf of the user (including, without limitation, DJ equipment listings, reviews of a provider or DJ equipment, participation in an interactive community, or blog (each an "Interactive Forum”) or any other content provided by a user to the Site), (collectively, "user-contributed content”). We are not responsible for user-contributed content. "User-contributed content” also includes information that a user or any other person provided to a third-party website or mobile application that is then provided to our Site by a tool we offer or any other exchange of user-contributed content we have authorized.
We reserve the right to decline to permit the posting on the Site of or to remove from the Site any user-contributed content that fails to meet our Content Guidelines, which are incorporated by reference into these Terms, any other guidelines posted on a Site or if it otherwise violates these Terms, each as determined in our discretion. We may also remove user-contributed content if it is brought to our attention, such as by notice given to us by a user or any third party that any part of these Terms, or any other requirements governing the posting of such content, have been apparently breached in respect of such content, as determined in our discretion. Finally, we reserve the right, but do not assume the obligation, to edit a provider’s content or user-contributed content in a non-substantive manner solely to cause the content to comply with our Content Guidelines or formatting requirements or to provide services to providers to create or improve listings (such as translation services), in accordance with information we have about the property listed. Users remain responsible for reviewing their user-contributed content to ensure it is accurate and not misleading.
At a minimum, user-contributed content must (as determined by us in our discretion):
All DJ equipment listings on the Site are the sole responsibility of the providers (who may be the equipment owners or duly authorized agents of the owners), and StageWing™ specifically disclaims any and all liability arising from the alleged accuracy of the listings, reviews, or any alleged breaches of contract by any users. Members are solely responsible for keeping their DJ equipment information up-to-date on the Site, including, but not limited to, any and all representations about any equipment, its location, price, and its availability for a specific date or range of dates. StageWing™ does not represent or warrant that any of the copy, content, user reviews, equipment location, suitability, pricing or availability information published on the Site is accurate or up-to-date even in the case where renters have searched for specific dates or types of DJ equipment.
Members are solely responsible for ensuring the accuracy of equipment descriptions and locations, and agree to promptly correct (or contact us to correct) any inaccuracy, and renters are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of such content and descriptions.
All other user-contributed content is the sole responsibility of each user who contributed such content, whether such user contributed the content directly or through a third-party. Users are solely responsible for their user-contributed content and we specifically disclaim all liability for user-contributed content. The user represents and warrants that the user owns or otherwise controls and has all necessary legal rights to the user’s submission and the name or other identifier used in connection with such submission including, but not limited to, all the rights necessary to provide, post, upload, input or submit the user-contributed content. We reserve the right to request a proof of ownership or permission, and to refuse to post user generated content without such proof or if such proof is, in our sole discretion, insufficient.
By submitting or authorizing user-contributed content, you grant to us and our affiliates a perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, unrestricted, non-exclusive, royalty-free and fully paid-up license to use, copy, license, sublicense (through multiple tiers), adapt, distribute, display, publicly perform, reproduce, transmit, modify, edit and otherwise exploit the copy, the photographs and the likenesses (if any) of any of your user-contributed content, in connection with our business or the business of our affiliates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, following the termination or expiration of a DJ equipment listing, we will not continue to display the user-contributed content that was displayed in such listing.
You further grant us the ability to register copyright in and protect the user-contributed content, including the images, copy, and content available via any provider’s listing, from the unauthorized use of the user-contributed content by unaffiliated third parties who may, from time to time, attempt to pirate such information via electronic or other means. This includes, but is not limited to, the right to file suit to seek injunctive relief to protect such material on behalf of and in your name. You further agree to appear and assist us—at our expense and control—with protecting such copyrighted material from unauthorized redistribution.
You agree that we may sublicense all the rights granted to us under these Terms to one or more third parties we may contract with to display all or part of the provider’s property listing or otherwise provide promotional or other services related to our business. In the event that you retain any rights of attribution, integrity or any other moral rights in any user-contributed content, you hereby waive your right to assert these or to require that any personally identifying information be used in connection with the user-contributed content or any derivative works thereof and affirm that you have no objection to the publication, use, modification, deletion or exploitation of the user-contributed content by us or our affiliates.
9. Service Fee Payable by Renters.
We charge a service fee payable by renters who book DJ equipment on the Site via the Site checkout. The service fee covers the use of the Site, including such features as 24/7 user support, and is calculated as a variable percentage of the total reservation amount (which may or may not include additional fees, taxes and damage deposits). Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction of the renter and/or provider, may be charged on top of the service fee. The exact service fee (and any VAT, if applicable) charged will be displayed to renters at the time of booking. The service fee plus applicable VAT will be charged after both the renter and provider accept the reservation. The service fee will only be refunded in the event a provider accepts cancellation of the renter’s reservation and refunds the entire rental amount. Any taxes alleged to be owed by any taxing authority on the service fee are the responsibility of StageWing™ and providers have no responsibility for any such claimed tax liability. Members agree not to encourage or advise a renter to avoid or circumvent the service fee charged by StageWing™.

18. Disputes; Arbitration.
StageWing™ has the right to amend these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time as set forth below in Section 22, except such right does not apply to this "Disputes; Arbitration" section. The version of this "Disputes; Arbitration” section in effect on the date you last accepted the Terms controls.
Any and all Claims will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except you may assert Claims on an individual basis in small claims court if they qualify. This includes any Claims you assert against us, our subsidiaries, users or any companies offering products or services through us (which are beneficiaries of this arbitration agreement). This also includes any Claims that arose before you accepted these Terms, regardless of whether prior versions of the Terms required arbitration.
Arbitrations will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA Arbitration Consumer Rules (together, the "AAA Rules”). Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You may choose to have an arbitration conducted by telephone or based on written submissions, in lieu of an in-person arbitration.
By agreeing to arbitration under the AAA Rules, the parties agree, among other things, that the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive power to rule on any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Claims to StageWing, LLC, 88 North Avondale Rd, Unit 138, Avondale Estates, GA 30002. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or street address you have provided. The AAA's rules and filing instructions are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879.
Any and all proceedings to resolve Claims will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court with competent jurisdiction.
19. Additional Terms and Conditions Applicable to Online Booking.
Users and providers who use StageWing™ marketplace software and Stripe™ payments processing software, or any other tool provided by us or a third party on the Site, enabling users to book and/or pay for the rental of DJ equipment (collectively, the "Equipment Rental Services”), are bound by the following terms in addition to any other terms applicable in connection with using the Site. Further, if such Equipment Rental Services include other services provided by a third-party provider, such services are subject to the additional terms and conditions and privacy policies of such third-party providers.
By utilizing a rental agreement as part of the Equipment Rental Services or otherwise displaying terms relating to the rental as part of the online booking process (including such terms that we may require), the renter and provider each agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the rental agreement or other such terms displayed in the booking process (including without limitation any cancellation refund policy) effective as of the date that the user indicates acceptance of the booking or rental agreement, as applicable. You hereby acknowledge and agree that (i) you are fully responsible for such terms and conditions, (ii) any rental agreement used, whether a sample provided by the Site or a rental agreement copied and pasted in Sharetribe (or other online booking tool on the Site) by either party, is used solely at their own risk and expense, (iii) nothing contained in the Equipment Rental Services, these Terms or any sample rental agreement is a substitute for the advice of an attorney and (iv) that you have been hereby advised to obtain local legal counsel to prepare, review and revise as necessary any rental agreements to ensure compliance with federal, state and local law and their particular circumstances, and to revise the rental agreement as necessary to accurately represent the property, rules, features, etc.
20. Responsibility for Equipment and Renter Liability.
Users are solely responsible for obtaining insurance coverage sufficient to protect their equipment and themselves, as applicable. Members agree that they have or will obtain the appropriate insurance coverage sufficient to cover the rental of the equipment they list on the Site before renting to their first renter and will maintain adequate insurance coverage through the end of each rental period they have booked via our Site. Further, providers agree to provide us with copies of relevant proof of coverage upon request.
