Terms and Conditions of Use
Last Updated: January 12, 2021
At Musician Guidance (“Musician Guidance”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), we offer music mentoring to help musicians succeed in the music industry.
The following Terms and Conditions of Use (the "Terms"), govern your access to and use of the Musician Guidance website, including any content, functionality and services offered on or through (the "Site", “Service”) by Musician Guidance.
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
When you use any current or future Musician Guidance service or visit or purchase from any business affiliated with Musician Guidance, whether or not as part of the Site or Service, you may also be subject to additional terms or conditions imposed by Musician Guidance, or terms and conditions applicable to a third party service or business. If such terms are inconsistent with the Terms, such terms will prevail.
Services are provided exclusively by Musicians or Professionals within the music industry (the “Sellers”) that have been approved by Musician Guidance to offer such services based off experience, knowledge or talent which will benefit the user and so users can be assured all services and providers of those services are indeed verified.
Services include video tips, video calls, shoutouts, and music feedback. There is also the option to message Professionals, Musicians and all Site members through forums and direct messaging.
Video Tips are pre-recorded (with exceptions of the potential live videos) and usually approximately 1 to 15 minutes in length (but subject to change).
These videos are taught and may be recorded directly by industry professionals (Sellers) and so you understand and warrant any imperfection in quality is not a reason for complaint.
Videos cannot be downloaded, shared or distributed in any way, shape or form. Doing so could result in the termination of your subscription and/or legal consequences.
Consists of up to a 15-minute one-on-one chat with the Seller the service is booked with.
The Seller at their sole discretion may wish to include other members on the call to further provide tailored guidance to you.
These video calls may be setup directly by industry professionals (Sellers) and so you understand and warrant any delay, technical issue or other error is not a reason for complaint.
Consists of up to a one minute long personalized video shout out from the Seller the service is booked with.
These shout outs may be recorded directly by industry professionals (Sellers) and so you understand and warrant any imperfection in quality is not a reason for complaint.
Consists of up to 400 words of written music feedback directly from the Seller the service is booked with.
You understand and warrant that feedback is subjective and so any disagreement in terms of feedback, guidance, industry insight or other information is not a reason for complaint.
Users are free to create their own forums to start discussions or ask questions.
You understand posting in forums is a privilege and therefore posting repeat or inappropriate messages may be seen as spam and so at Musician Guidance’s sole discretion, we may limit your ability to post in forums without prior notice.
Users are free to send an unlimited amount of messages to Sellers and other members of the Site.
You understand direct messaging is a privilege and therefore sending repeat or inappropriate messages may be seen as spam and so at Musician Guidance’s sole discretion, we may limit your messaging feature without prior notice.
Furthermore, Musician Guidance is not responsible for the content, quality or the level of service provided by the Sellers (even though they have all been screened and approved by a member of our team). We provide no warranty with respect to the services, their delivery, or any communications between Buyers and Sellers.
You may not offer direct payments to the Sellers outside of the Musician Guidance platform.
Musician Guidance retains the right to use all publicly published delivered works for Musician Guidance marketing and promotional purposes.
You may not offer Sellers to pay, or make payment using any method other than through the musicianguidance.com site.
Once payment is confirmed, your order will be created and the provided information (filled in at checkout) will be sent to and received by the Seller.
Some or all information provided in the booking form or elsewhere to the Seller may not be implemented in the service.
Sellers have exactly seven days from the scheduled booking time to deliver the order to you (apart from some services which happen live at the schedule booking time). If this time frame is not met, you will have the option to "dispute" the order by directly emailing the support team at with a subject line of "Dispute Order." All Disputes are settled by the Musician Guidance Support Team.
Deliveries will be sent to the email you submit at checkout (there may be a link to the file if it is too large to attach).
In order to accept the delivery you will email within 3 days of receiving the service with a subject line of "Order Accepted."
If the delivery is not accepted within three (3) days it is automatically marked complete.
In order to login to the Site, a membership is needed which are available in several packages. These packages may change from time to time and may include promotional part-time packages.
These membership plans are auto-renewing and so if you wish to cancel a subscription, please navigate to your profile page and cancel the subscription. For help, contact our Support team.
Packages may include a term length to which the subscription cannot be cancelled until the term has ended. If you cancel the subscription while the term has not ended, you will still receive access up until the deadline (which will be available for you to see) and then the subscription will end.
All packages vary and so it is important to review the features and access capabilities of all packages before making a decision.
DISPUTES AND CANCELLATIONS
We hope that disputes do not occur between Buyers and Sellers, but if the Seller is not happy with the order they received, they can “dispute” the order by emailing support within three days of the order being delivered. By disputing the order however, you agree and warrant that Musician Guidance holds the exclusive right to the decision.

Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, and therefore some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Without limiting the foregoing, in no event will the aggregate liability to you of Musician Guidance and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys, and suppliers and each of their respective successors and assigns exceed, in total, the amounts paid by you to us.
a. Severance. If any part of the Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the invalid or unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remainder will remain in full force and effect, provided that the allocation of risks described herein is given effect to the fullest extent possible.
b. No Assignment. These Terms are personal to you and you may not transfer, assign or delegate them to anyone without the express written permission of Musician Guidance.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Service or to products or services sold or distributed by Musician Guidance or through the Service will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that we and you may assert claims in small claims court if the claims qualify.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings 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. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Manitoba and the federal laws of Canada. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement shall be finally settled by arbitration in Manitoba, Canada.

f. Entire Agreement. These Terms comprise the entire agreement between you and Musician Guidance with respect to the use of the Service and supersede all contemporaneous and prior agreements between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein, and neither party has relied on any representations made by the other that are not expressly set forth herein.
g. No Waiver. The failure of Musician Guidance to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms, including any failure to act with respect to a breach, will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or Musician Guidance right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We suggest that you print out a copy of these Terms for your records.
