Terms and Conditions
The following Terms and Conditions govern your use of and access to the MicroArtistry education and training products related to the application of permanent makeup.
Thank you for using the web-based services and video training provided by Amber Massa doing business as MicroArtistry (“MicroArtistry”). The term “Services” as used in herein refers to the products, services, website, content, databases, software, technologies, and tools delivered by MicroArtistry.
MicroArtistry is willing to provide the Services on the condition that you accept these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”). By accessing, registering for, or using the Services, or by accepting these Terms through an “I Accept” check-box or similar method, you agree to these Terms. You may also agree to these Terms by physically or electronically signing an Order (as defined below) that incorporates these Terms. These Terms along with any Order form a legally binding agreement between you and MicroArtistry.
Please read these Terms carefully and, if you wish, print or save a copy for your records. If you do not agree with these Terms, you may not access or use the Services.
By entering into these Terms, you represent that 1) you are at least 18 years of age and therefore have the legal capacity to accept these Terms and place an Order, 2) you are legally able to apply permanent make-up in the jurisdiction where you offer your services and 3) you maintain professional liability insurance insuring the services you perform.
You may gain access to the Services through your acceptance of these Terms and payment of the access fees (an “Order”). The Order will specify the costs to access the Service, how long you are authorized to access the Service, and any other terms not specifically stated herein. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the terms of an Order, these Terms shall control.
Changes to the Services
MicroArtistry may, with or without notice, add features to the Services, or change or remove features of the Services, at any time.
To use the Services, you will need a MicroArtistry username and password. Certain Services may also require additional login information.
Your account is for your personal use only. You may not authorize others to use your account, and you may not assign or transfer your account to any other person or party.
You must keep your username and password confidential. You are responsible for all activities, charges, and liabilities associated with your account. You agree to immediately notify MicroArtistry of any unauthorized use of your account of which you are aware.
Your Use of the Services
The beginning date and the expiration date for your subscription to use the Services will specified in your Order (the “Subscription Period”). During your Subscription Period, MicroArtistry grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license only to access and to use the Services for the Permitted Use (as defined below). You may not use the Services for any other purpose.
“Permitted Use” means your personal noncommercial use of the Services to extend your knowledge regarding the application of permanent makeup.
You shall provide, at your own expense, suitable equipment, software, and internet access as necessary to access and use the Services.
Neither the Services nor any portion thereof may be displayed, copied, downloaded, sold, resold, used, distributed, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without MicroArtistry’s prior written consent. You may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any Mark (defined below) or other proprietary information (including images, text, page layout and form) of MicroArtistry without MicroArtistry’s prior written consent. You may not use any meta tags or any other "hidden text" using MicroArtistry's Marks without MicroArtistry’s prior written consent. Any unauthorized use by you of MicroArtistry’s Marks or other intellectual property automatically terminates the license granted by MicroArtistry under these Terms and your right to use the Services.
Copyright / Intellectual Property Rights
MicroArtistry owns and retains all right, title, and interest in and to the Services, all underlying technology used with or otherwise enabling the Services, and all software available within the Services (collectively, “MicroArtistry Materials”), including all associated trademarks, copyrights, and other intellectual property rights. Nothing in these Terms transfers any such rights, title, or interest to you or any other user, and MicroArtistry reserves all rights not expressly granted to you. All software and apps provided to you under these Terms are licensed for the Subscription Period and are not sold.
You agree not to remove, conceal, or alter any proprietary rights notices (including copyright and trademark notices) contained within the MicroArtistry Materials. You may not (and you may not permit anyone else to) extract, copy, modify, reverse engineer, decompile, or otherwise attempt to access or use the Services or the source code of the underlying software used to provide the Services.
All trademarks, service marks, trade names, logos, and graphics included within the Services ("Marks") are trademarks of MicroArtistry and its licensors. You may not use any Marks without the prior written consent of MicroArtistry.
You agree that any breach of your obligations with respect to MicroArtistry's proprietary or intellectual property rights will result in irreparable injury to MicroArtistry for which money damages are inadequate, and you therefore agree that MicroArtistry shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief to address such breach, without the requirement of posting a bond, in addition to any other relief that a court may deem proper.
Unless otherwise specified in the applicable Order, all fees are payable in U.S. dollars. All fees paid are nonrefundable and non-creditable.
Unless another form of payment is specified in the Order, MicroArtistry will bill your credit card (for purposes of these Terms, the term “credit card” includes a credit card or a debit card) for all applicable fees in advance of Service delivery. You shall provide MicroArtistry with accurate and complete billing information, including your name, address, telephone number, and valid credit card information, and shall promptly notify MicroArtistry of any changes in that information. You acknowledge that the agreement between you and the applicable credit card issuer governs use of your credit card for payment of amounts owed to MicroArtistry, including your rights and obligations as a holder of that card.
MicroArtistry will disclose the applicable payment options at the time you place your Order. You shall select a payment method to pay MicroArtistry for providing the Services. MicroArtistry or MicroArtistry's billing agent may charge your payment method for all amounts due to MicroArtistry without additional notice or consent unless otherwise required by law.
Except for taxes based on MicroArtistry’s net income, if any authority imposes a tax, duty, levy, or fee upon your use of or Orders for the Services, you shall pay that amount as specified in the Order or MicroArtistry’s invoice or supply MicroArtistry with exemption documentation. You are also responsible for paying all administrative fees (such as PayPal fees) associated with the Services and any transactions you entered into in connection with the Services.
If MicroArtistry does not receive payment from your credit card issuer, upon demand you shall pay all overdue amounts by other means acceptable to MicroArtistry. MicroArtistry may accept other forms of payment, and if MicroArtistry invoices you for the Services, you shall pay to MicroArtistry the amount indicated in each invoice by the due date reflected on the invoice.
If you believe that a billing discrepancy has occurred, unless you notify MicroArtistry in writing within 60 days after the date on which that discrepancy first appeared on your credit card account statement or invoice, as applicable, you waive your right to claim that discrepancy.
Service purchases and subscriptions are nonreturnable and cannot be exchanged. Until your Service is terminated, you will continue to accrue charges for which you remain liable, even if you do not use the Service.
If you fail to pay according to these Terms, MicroArtistry may, without prejudice to its other rights and remedies: (1) charge interest on any unpaid amounts on a daily basis from the original due date at the rate of the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permissible by law, (2) suspend or terminate your use and/or access to the Services, or both (1) and (2). You shall reimburse MicroArtistry for all reasonable expenses MicroArtistry incurs in collecting past due amounts, including wire transfer fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorney’s fees, and court costs. MicroArtistry may charge a fee for reinstatement of suspended or terminated accounts.
In addition, if you fail to pay according to these Terms, unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law, you consent and agree that MicroArtistry or its designated third party collection agency may contact you by: (1) phone at one or more of your telephone numbers, including your wireless telephone numbers (in which case you might incur wireless telephone charges under your wireless device plan), (2) text messages (in which case you might incur message and data charges under your wireless device plan) or emails, and/or (3) any other method of contact, including pre-recorded and/or artificial voice messages or an automatic dialing device.
