Blare Studios is on a mission to be the #1 marketplace for studio owners and creators to meet and work together. To do that, we must build and maintain a platform that you believe in and trust. For that reason, we may make the tough decision to permanently remove studios and/or creators from our platform. If you want to know what decisions are made to remove a user from Blare Studios, read ahead about our guidelines. Also, we reserve the right to remove or edit content on this website that does not meet our standards.
By using Blare Studios, you agree to our Guidelines. If you have any questions about these Guidelines or if you believe that a user has violated these Community Guidelines, please send us a message at [email protected]
Guidelines for Studios
1. Comply with local laws, local zoning ordinances, and tax laws at all times.
Blare Studios acts as a platform that allows communication between multiple parties and is not liable for ensuring compliance by studios. It is the responsibility of each studio and each listing owner to ensure all local laws, zoning ordinance, and also tax compliance are met. Any payments collected by the studios and its owners through Blare Studios is subject to any business reporting that they responsible for. If you are responsible for charging local taxes on services, you must also comply with these regulations and let all users know of any applicable taxes that they may be charged for.
2. Accurate representation of the studios, pricing, and services of each studio.
One of the best ways to gain trust is to deliver on everything in your listing. You must be honest in what studio has and what services can be offered to creators. You must also honor the prices listed at the time of each booking. Every report submitted to the Blare Group and Blare Studios is reviewed and taken seriously. If it is discovered that you are being dishonest, appropriate action will be taken to prevent further misrepresentation.
3. You must have permission to offer services from the studio you list.
Any studio that you list on Blare Studios must be owned by you, or you must have permission from the studio owner to list the studio and its services on our platform. If it is discovered that you are offering a studio that you do not have permission to offer, the listing will be immediately removed and your account is subject to cancellation.
Guidelines for Creators
1. Comply with all studio rules, policies, and booking agreement.
As a creator, you agree to use the studio that you booked as it was intended to be used as stated in its listing by the studio owner. Studios take pride in their space, the equipment, and their profession and will be expecting the same professional respect and courtesy that they are providing.
2. Never engage in illegal or prohibited activity while at a studio.
All local laws are enforceable and studio owners can notify authorities if laws are being broken on their property or on their studio premises. Never engage in any illegal activity on studio property or premises.
Guidelines for Everyone
1. Communicate honestly with others.
Everyone must keep all communication that is handled on Blare Studios as honest as possible.
2. Use our platform for the intended use of Blare Studios.
Blare Studios is a platform for creators to find recording and/or photography studios to create their content. Uses of the website will use the site to communicate with each, book studio appointments, and process payments for said appointments. Studio owners are to use the site to offer studio time as well as additional services to help creators with creating their content. The intentional use of this website for any other purposes can lead to an immediate removal of your account.
3. Respect others privacy and information.
We ask that everyone use common courtesy when visiting, or having vistors at, the studios. There may be times when you see a guest or visitor that is well known in the public space. It is professional and common courtesy to respect the privacy of the studios, others on the premise, and the information of both the studios and professionals that may be offering studio services. In some cases, studios may require artists to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) at the studio prior to their booking. If there is ever an issue with privacy, studio security, or studio rules, please send us an email immediately at [email protected]

This is an overview of all of the fees associated with using the Blare Studios website.
The total price for a session will be presented prior to your acceptance. Once accepted our Refunds & Cancellations policy applies. We may authorize a hold for the amount of the final session cost to your credit card or other payment methods linked to your Account when you request a session. When a session is accepted by a Studio, we will charge your account for the final session cost. If you update a session, we may adjust the Studio Fees accordingly which may result in either additional amounts owed or a refund of amounts paid.
If you have questions at any time regarding fees, please email us at [email protected]
This price is determined by the amount set by the studio. It is calculated by the Studio’s hourly rate multiplied by the number of hours booked for a session.
Some studios will require that creators pay a deposit per booked session.
Required Session Fees
These fees added by the studio and are not optional and are required on every booking. They are a one-tome fee per session and are not included in the service fee
These are the optional services creators select. These are a one time fee that is added to the total booking cost.
Total Booking Cost
This is the sum of every item charged for the booked session minus the service fee. This is calculated by adding the session price, required session fee(s) and cost of addons.
Final Session Cost
This is the sum of every item charged for the booked session. This is calculated by adding the session price, service fee, required session fee(s), and cost of addons.
These are fees paid to Blare Studios for the use of the platform.
Fees for Studios:
1. Studio listing plans
To list your studio on BlareStudios.io is, and will always be, free. However, we do offer a pro plan that has more features that costs $50 per year. If at any moment you fill that you are not getting enough value from the platform, we will refund 100% of your most recent payment if it was paid within 30 days prior to your cancellation request.
2. Studio listing promotions
Blare Studios is constantly growing, and as the platform gets crowded with other studios, we offer promotional opportunities to get your listing ranked above other studios.
3. Transaction fees
Blare Studios will handle payments for any bookings made on the website. For this, we charge a 10% service fee of the booking total cost. The booking total is the total of your hourly rate, plus any other fees and/or addons that you created with your listing. The booking total cost does not include the service fee we charge creators.
As an example, if the total cost to book 2 hours at your studio is $200, we will take $20 and you will receive a $180 payout for that booking.
Fees for Creators
1. Transaction fees
Blare Studios will handle payments for any bookings made on the website. For this, we charge a 10% service fee of the session price. This service fee will be added to your total booking cost to create your final session cost. The total booking cost is the total of your session price, plus any other fees and/or addons that are required, or that you selected at the time of your booking. The service fee plus your total booking cost creates your final session price.
As an example, if you book a studio with an hourly rate of $100 per hour for 2 hours, then your session prices will be $200. The service fee will be $20. Thus, your final session price will be $220. If you were to add on any additional services, they will be added to the final session price without a service fee.
2. Additional fees
If you stay longer than the amount of time that you booked for your session, you will be charged at one or one-and-one-half times the studio’s hourly rate, and will be billed in 30-minute increments.
Service fees are not applied to overtime.
Some studios will set the maximum amount of guests allowed in your group for your booked session. If the studio provides proof that you exceeded this maximum, we may impose an additional charge.
Service fees are not applied to Maximum Occupancy Fees.
If a studio can provide proof that you or a member of your group damaged equipment, or their property, we may impose an additional charge. The “+” is to cover misuse of the studio space or time. Examples include smoking when not prohibited, food and beverages in places where not allowed, leaving trash behind that must be cleaned by the Studio, violations of the Booking Agreement or the Community Guidelines, insufficient funds or unauthorized use of a payment account, or other claims. Where any Fines are owed, you agree that we may immediately charge any payment method linked to your Account at our discretion.
Updated on August 11, 2021
We understand that not every studio on our platform will see the value that we see. We do hope that if you don’t see the perceived that you would complete an exit survey which would give you the opportunity to let us know where we can improve.
Studios only receive refunds after cancelling their account. This is done automatically after your account is successfully removed from BlareStudios.io. You are refunded your last payment paid at a prorated amount.
All payments made for bookings have a service fee included. This service fee is non-refundable unless a death to the creator occurs, or unforeseen circumstances causes a creator to cancel. Refunding due to these circumstances is up to the discretion of Blare Studios.
If a studio cancels a booking, then 100% of the creator’s payment (including service fee) is returned.
Total Booking Cost
Any payments made for a booking outside of the service fee must be approved by the studio. The reason for this is because the funds from your payment are sent to them for an agreement to use their studio. Remember, Blare Studios is just a platform to assist with creators and studios with bookings.
There are times when studios will allow you to book their studio with no payment. In most cases you will have 24 hours to make your payment, or your booking will be cancelled automatically.
After your booking has been paid in full, you can log in at anytime and cancel if needed.
Keep in mind that cancellations are handled between the studios and creators directly. We can only cancel a booking if a bug on the website prevents you from doing so.
There are currently four cancellation policies available. Each studio selects one of the following cancellation policies that best fits their business.
- 24 Hours: Creators may cancel their studio sessions until 24 hours before the booking start time and will receive a full refund (including all Fees) of their Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 24 hours of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 100% of the Final Session Cost.
- 7 Days: Creators may cancel their studio sessions until 7 days before the booking start time and will receive a full refund (including all fees) of their Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 7 days and up 24 hours of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 50% of the Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 24 hours of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 100% of the Final Session Cost.
- 30 Days: Creators may cancel their studio sessions until 30 days before the booking start time and will receive a full refund (including all fees) of their Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 30 days and up 7 days of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 50% of the Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 7 days of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 100% of the Final Session Cost.
- 60 Days: Creators may cancel their studio sessions until 60 days before the booking start time and will receive a full refund (including all fees) of their Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 60 days and up 30 days of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 50% of the Final Session Cost. Cancelling within 14 days of the booking start time will result in the forfeit of 100% of the Final Session Cost.
A Studio Session is only officially cancelled once the Creator has received confirmation of the cancellation from Blare Studios.
Studio payouts will vary depending on the specific cancellation policy chosen by the Studio and other circumstances. If Blare Studios, in its sole discretion based on the applicable cancellation policy, determines a Creator is owed to a refund, the Studio payout will be calculated by deducting from the total booking cost minus any security deposit, the Blare Studios service fee, and then reducing that amount by the percentage specified in the applicable cancellation policy. Payouts are typically made within 7 business days after the cancellation is confirmed.
Deposits are typically returned to the Creator after a confirmed session is complete. In the event that a session is cancelled, any security deposit on the booking will be returned with any other funds owed to the creator.
All cancellation periods are calculated based upon local time for the Studio.
Cancellations by Studios
Any cancellations initiated by a studio will be fully refunded to the Creator (including any Fees paid). The Studio will also be responsible for losses incurred by Blare Studios or the Creator associated with any cancellation, and all scheduled studio payouts for that session will be cancelled. In addition, Blare Studios may issue a Strike to Studios for cancellations. Too many strikes can lead to demoting a studio listings rank, or removal from the platform. In the event that a promoted listing is demoted for too many Strikes, Blare Studios will not return funds paid for promotion.
Cancelled by Blare Studios
Blare Studios may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or appropriate to cancel a confirmed Studio Session. Blare Studios may cancel a booked session at any time prior to the start time and issue a full or partial refund to a Creator. When Blare Studios initiates a cancellation, any refunds or payouts will vary depending on the circumstances that prompted the cancellation. Neither The Blare Group, Blare Studios, nor any of the other parties to the cancelled Session shall have any liability or obligation for any such cancellations. The following are circumstances in which Blare Studios may initiate a cancellation:
- An Excused Cancellation;
- The removal of a Studio or Rehearsal Space from the Platform prior to the Studio Session Start Time;
- Any actual or potential illegal or unauthorized activity;
- Risk of harm or safety concerns;
- Any violations of the Guidelines; or
- Any other reason.

Certain types of Studio Services may be prohibited altogether. Penalties may include fines or other enforcement.

1. Scope of Blare Studios Services and Interaction with other Members
1.1 Our Services provide a platform for members to discover music studios, arrange for studio bookings, engage in studio activities and communicate with one another. Studiotime is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other members of our Services. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor interactions between you and other members of our Services.
Remember, Studiotime is just a platform that enables you to communicate and interact with others in the music industry. We cannot be responsible for the interactions that you have with other Studiotime members, so please use good judgment and keep safety in mind when you use our Services.
1.2 The Studiotime Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are “Studios” and the services they offer are “Studio Services”) to publish such Studio Services on the Studiotime Platform (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Studio Services (Members using Studio Services are “Artists”). Studio Services may include the offering of other services such as audio production (“Audio Services”), and a variety of other audio and non-audio related services.
1.3 As the provider of the Studiotime Platform, Studiotime does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Studio Services. Studios alone are responsible for their Listings and Studio Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a non-binding agreement directly with each other. Studiotime is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Studiotime a broker or insurer.
1.4 While we may (at our own discretion) help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Studiotime has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings or Studio Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. Studiotime does not endorse any Member, Listing or Studio Services. Any references to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Studiotime about any Member, including of the Member’s identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to book a Studio or use other Studio Services, accept a booking request from an Artist, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Reviews are intended only to indicate Member feedback from past bookings, and are therefore not an endorsement by Studiotime of any Studio or Listing.
1.5 Studiotime is merely a communication platform, therefore if you List your Studio or Studio Services, your relationship with Studiotime is not a contractual one, you are not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Studiotime for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Studiotime.
1.6 To promote the Studiotime Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Artists (as defined below), Listings and other Member Content (as defined below) may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements.
1.7 The Studiotime Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. Studiotime is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Studiotime of such Third-Party Services.
1.8 Due to the nature of the Internet, Studiotime cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Studiotime Platform. Studiotime may restrict the availability of the Studiotime Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Studiotime Platform. Studiotime may improve, enhance and modify the Studiotime Platform and introduce new Studiotime Services from time to time.

Certain Studiotime Services may enable you to specify the level at which such Studiotime Services restrict access to your Member Content. You are solely responsible for applying the appropriate level of access to your Member Content. If you do not choose, the system may default to its most permissive setting. You agree that we retain the right to create reasonable limits on our use and storage of the Collective Content, including your Member Content, such as limits on file size, storage space, processing capacity, and similar limits described on the Site and as otherwise determined by us in our sole discretion.
5.10 Studiotime respects copyright law and expects its Members to do the same. If you believe that any content on the Studiotime Platform infringes copyrights you own, please notify us in accordance with our Copyright Policy.
6. No Contractual Relationship and No Booking Transaction Service Fees
6.1 Studiotime is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization. Since we are not a party to any booking agreement between members, we do not charge a booking transaction service fee for the use of the Studiotime Platform.
6.2 Studiotime does charge a subscription fee for Studios in order to have a Studio or Studio Services Listing on our platform. This however, does not affect the status of Studiotime as a non-contractual party to any contracts between members. This means that Studiotime is just a platform that enables members to communicate and interact only.

You are responsible for keeping your Listing information up-to-date at all times.
7.1.2 You are solely responsible for setting a price (including any Taxes if applicable) for your Listing (“Listing Fee”).

7.1.5 The placement and ranking of Listings in search results on the Studiotime Platform may vary and depend on a variety of factors, such as Artist search parameters and preferences, Studio requirements, price, number and quality of Images, Reviews and Ratings, type of Studio Service, and/or ease of booking.
7.1.6 When you accept or have pre-approved a booking request by an Artist, you are entering into a non-binding agreement with the Artist. Studiotime is not a party to this agreement, we are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios.
7.1.7 Studiotime recommends that Studios obtain appropriate insurance for their Studio Services. We recommend you review any respective insurance policy carefully, and in particular 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 Artists (and the individuals the Artist has booked for, if applicable) while using your Studio, Audio Services, or other Studio Service. This information is provided for convenience only and should not be deemed advice or replace the advice of an insurance professional.
7.2.1 If you choose to require a security deposit for your Studio, you may specify this in your Listing description (“Security Deposits”). Remember, Studiotime is not a party to any accommodation agreement that you may enter with an Artist, we are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. Therefore, Studiotime is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Studios or Artists related to Security Deposits.

8. Terms specific for Artists
8.1 Terms applicable to all bookings
8.1.1 Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification processes) set by the Studio, you can book a Listing available on the Studiotime Platform by following the respective booking process. A “booking” is not a legally binding agreement between you and the Studio. Remember, Studiotime is not a party to this agreement, we are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. All applicable fees disclosed in the booking process are fee parameters set by the Studio. They will need to be confirmed by the Studio and Studiotime is not a party of this. With your booking request, you indicate an interest to pay the total fees for any booking requested in connection with your Studiotime Account. The actual entering into a contract and any payments made between Members is outside the scope of Studiotime Services. Studiotime is solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. For the avoidance of doubt, the formation of any binding legal contract is outside the scope of the Studiotime Services. Studiotime does not collect or process any fees relating to contracts between Members.
8.1.2 Upon receipt of a booking confirmation from Studiotime, an agreement may be formed between you and your Studio, subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Studio that apply, including in particular the applicable cancellation policy and any rules and restrictions specified in the Listing. Studiotime is not a party to this agreement, we are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Studios communicate with Artists. Therefore, we will neither collect nor process any payments relating to such any booking agreement.
8.1.3 If you book a Studio Service on behalf of additional guests, you should ensure that every additional guest meets any requirements set by the Studio, and is made aware of and agrees to this Agreement and any terms and conditions, rules and restrictions set by the Studio. If you are booking for an additional guest who is a minor, you represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor. Minors may only participate in a booking if accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.
8.2 Studio Bookings
8.2.1 You understand that a confirmed booking of a Studio (“Studio Booking”) may be a limited license granted to you by the Studio to enter, occupy and use the Studio for a set duration, in accordance with your agreement with the Studio. Studiotime is not a party to this agreement, we are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. Therefore, cannot attest the existence of such a license. Studiotime does not collect or process any fees relating to any contracts between Members.
9. Booking Modifications, Cancellations and Refunds, Resolution
9.1 Studios and Artists are responsible for any modifications to a booking that they make via the Studiotime Platform or direct the Studios to make (“Booking Modifications”). Studiotime is not a party to any booking agreement between members, we are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. Therefore, Studiotime is not responsible for any modifications.
9.2 Artists can cancel a confirmed booking at any time by emailing [email protected] subject to the Listing’s cancellation policy. As Studiotime is not a party to any booking agreement between members, we cannot assess the effect of such a cancellation on the contractual relation that may exist between members. We are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. As Studiotime does not collect or process any fees relating to contracts between members, Studiotime will not be responsible to provide any refund to either Artist or Studio.
10. Ratings and Reviews
10.1 Within a certain timeframe after completing a booking, Artists and Studios can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a star rating (“Rating”) about each other. Any Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinion of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of Studiotime.
10.2 Ratings and Reviews by Artists and Studios must be fair, truthful and factual and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews must comply with Studiotime’s Content Policy and Extortion Policy.
11. Damage to Accommodations, Disputes between Members
11.1 Because Studiotime is merely a platform, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more members, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law you release us (and our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
12. Fees and Taxes
12.1 To use the Studiotime Services as a Studio, you may need to sign up for a subscription to the Studiotime Services and pay the applicable subscription fee, as set forth in this Section 12. All fees set forth within and paid by Studio to Studiotime under the Agreement shall be considered solely for the purpose of securing Studio’s access to the Studiotime Services. Studio agrees to pay all fees or charges to your Studiotime Account in accordance with the fees, charges and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. You must provide Studiotime with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or PayPal account of a payment provider (“Payment Provider”), or purchase order information, as a condition to signing up for the Studiotime Services. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card or PayPal account, and you must refer to that agreement, not this Agreement, to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Studiotime with your credit card number or PayPal account and associated payment information, you agree that Studiotime is authorized to immediately invoice your Studiotime Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Studiotime hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required. You agree to immediately notify Studiotime of any change in your billing address or the credit card or PayPal account used for payment hereunder. Studiotime reserves the right at any time to change its prices and billing methods, either immediately upon posting on the Studiotime Platform or by e-mail delivery to you.
12.2 Studios will be responsible for payment of the applicable fee for any Studiotime Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you create your Studiotime Account and select your annual package (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). Except as set forth in the Agreement, all fees for the Studiotime Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between Studio and Studiotime for the paid Studiotime Services until Studiotime accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail or other appropriate means of communication.
12.3 Third Party Payments Provider. Studiotime uses Stripe, Inc. (“Payment Processor”) as the third party service provider for payment services (e.g., card acceptance, merchant settlement, and related services). Your use of the Studiotime Platform and the payment processing provided by the Payment Processor is subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement that includes the Stripe Services Agreement, as may be modified by the Payment Processor from time to time (collectively, the “Payment Processor Agreement”). As a condition of using the Payment Processor’s payment processing, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you authorize us to share this information with the Payment Processor. All bank and credit card information is sent directly to and stored with the Payment Processor using its security protocols. Studiotime does not store your payment information on its systems and shall not have any responsibility for the safety or security of that information. Your use of the Payment Processor’s payment processing is conditioned upon your compliance with the Payment Processor Agreement, and if the Payment Processor Agreement is terminated by the Payment Processor, you may not be able to use the Studiotime Platform, or you may have your Studiotime Account suspended or terminated. We may change or add other payment processing services at any time upon notice to you, which may be subject to additional terms or conditions.
12.4 As a Studio you are solely responsible for determining your obligations to report, collect, remit or include in your Listing Fees any applicable VAT or other indirect sales taxes, business tax, services taxes or income taxes (“Taxes”).
12.5 As Studiotime is not a party to any booking agreement between members, we cannot assess the effect of such tax requirements on the contractual relation that may exist between Members. We are solely a platform that helps Artists discover Studio Services and that helps Artists communicate with Studios. As Studiotime does not collect or process any fees relating to contracts between Members, Studiotime will not be responsible to administer and facilitate collection and remittance of Taxes from or on behalf of Artists or Studios.

18. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
18.1 This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement shall apply if you (i) reside in the United States; or (ii) do not reside in the United States, but bring any claim against Studiotime in the United States (to the extent not in conflict with Section 20).
18.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Studiotime is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom Section 18.1 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Studiotime’s customer service team, and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) using its specially designed Consumer Arbitration Rules (as modified by this Section 18). Specifically, the process provides:
Claims can be filed with AAA online (www.adr.org); Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator; Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party; Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option; The initial filing fee for the consumer is capped at $200; The consumer gets to elect the hearing location and can elect to participate live, by phone, video conference, or, for claims under $25,000, by the submission of documents; The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to resolve the party’s individual claim.
18.3 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Studiotime each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact Studiotime’s customer service team by emailing us at [email protected] If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
18.4 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Studiotime mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or to the use of the Studiotime Platform, the Studio Services, or the Collective Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Studiotime agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
18.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Studiotime each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack).
18.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.
18.7 Modification to AAA Rules – Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, Studiotime agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option, (a) in the county where you reside; (b) in Los Angeles County; (c) in any other location to which you and Studiotime both agree; (d) via phone or video conference; or (e) for any claim or counterclaim under $25,000, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
18.8 Modification of AAA Rules – Attorney’s Fees and Costs. You may be entitled to seek an award of attorney fees and expenses if you prevail in arbitration, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA rules. Unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous or filed for the purpose of harassment, Studiotime agrees it will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law or the AAA rules, to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
18.9 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
18.10 Jury Trial Waiver. You and Studiotime acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
18.11 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Studiotime acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney-general action, or any other representative proceeding as to all Disputes. Further, unless you and Studiotime both otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this paragraph is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute.
18.12 Severability. Except as provided in Section 18.11, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
18.13 Changes.

20. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
20.1 If you reside in the United States, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 18 must be brought in state or federal court in San Francisco, California, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Los Angeles, California.
20.2 If you reside in China these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of China (“China Laws”). Any dispute arising from or in connection with this Agreement shall be submitted to the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) for arbitration in Beijing which shall be conducted in accordance with CIETAC’s arbitration rules in effect at the time of applying for arbitration, provided that this section shall not be construed to limit any rights which Studiotime may have to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for an order requiring you to perform or be prohibited from performing certain acts and other provisional relief permitted under China Laws or any other laws that may apply to you. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English. The arbitral award rendered is final and binding upon both parties.
20.3 If you reside outside of the United States and China, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with Irish law. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is excluded.

If you are acting as a consumer, you agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts. Judicial proceedings that you are able to bring against us arising from or in connection with these Terms may only be brought in a court located in Ireland or a court with jurisdiction in your place of residence. If Studiotime wishes to enforce any of its rights against you as a consumer, we may do so only in the courts of the jurisdiction in which you are a resident. If you are acting as a business, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Irish courts.
