Terms and Conditions
Last Revised: January 20, 2016
Welcome to MyTractice. We are passionate about creating an innovative product and service to empower Musicians everywhere, and we are thrilled to have you on our team. These Terms and Conditions of Use are the rules of the game – designed to create a positive, law-abiding community of our Musicians. By using our service, you are agreeing to all the terms below.
MyTractice offers a service, all other current and future digital products and or service offerings we make available, including any products and services provided in collaboration with a partner/s (collectively, the “Services”). We are driven to create services that enhance the lives and performance of all musicians everywhere, and that’s why we refer to online and offline community members as “musicians.”
These Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of our Service. Please read the Terms carefully before using our Service, as they are a legally binding contract between you and MyTractice. Note that we have included several summaries at the top of each section – these summaries are not a part of the contract itself, but are intended to emphasize key sections and help you follow the text.
Please feel free to contact us through our Support Team (email@example.com) if you have any questions or suggestions.
(a) Who can use the MyTractice Service
MyTractice supports and encourages musicians of all ages. You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to use MyTractice, and at least eighteen (18) years of age to use the subscription services (unless otherwise specified in separate policies applicable to certain specific jurisdictions). If you are between the ages of 5-18, you may use the Service only with the supervision and consent of a parent or guardian. No individual under these age limits may use the Service, provide any Personal Data to MyTractice, or otherwise submit Personal Data through the Service (e.g., a name, address, telephone number, or email address).
(b) Your Account
You may need to create a MyTractice account to access our Service, and it’s important that the information associated with your account is accurate and up-to-date (particularly your email address – if you ever forget your password, a working email address is often the only way for us to verify your identity and help you log back in).
You will need to register for a MyTractice account in order to access or use our Service. Your account may automatically provide you access and means to use a new Service that we create.
When you create an account for our Service, you must provide us with accurate and complete information as prompted by the account creation and registration process, and keep that information up to date. Otherwise, some of our Service may not operate correctly, and we may not be able to contact you with important notices.
If you create an account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any and all actions that take place while using your account, and you must notify our Support Team right away of any actual or suspected loss, theft, or unauthorized use of your account or account password. We are not responsible for any loss that results from unauthorized use of your username and password, with or without your knowledge.
If you forget your password and have an existing MyTractice account, click on the “Sign Up” or “Log In” link at the top of the page. You will be taken to the Sign In page, where you can select “Forgot Password” to create a new password.
(c) Service Updates, Changes and Limitations
Our Service is constantly evolving to be more useful for our musicians and community. With new product services and features launching all the time, we need the flexibility to make changes, impose limits, and occasionally suspend or terminate certain offerings. We may also update our Service.
The Service changes frequently, and its form and functionality may change without prior notice to you. We may also impose limits on our Service or restrict your access to part or all of the Service without notice or liability.
We may also from time to time, as we see fit, develop and provide updates for our Service. This may include upgrades, modifications, bug fixes, patches and other error corrections and/or new features (collectively, “Updates”). These Updates may include updated versions of our application, which may automatically electronically upgrade the versions used on your device. You expressly consent to such automatic Updates. Further, you agree that the Terms (and any additional modifications of the same) will apply to any and all Updates to the Services.

(i) Accuracy and Reliance on Content

MyTractice is a community dedicated to helping all musicians reach their practice goals. Some of our Service may include reviews, discussion forums, conversation pages, blogs or other interactive areas or social features that allow you and other musicians to post User-Generated Content and interact with one another (“Interactive Areas”). You are solely responsible for your use of the Interactive Areas and for any User-Generated Content that you post, including the transmission, accuracy and completeness of the User-Generated Content. As the Interactive Areas are often public, you understand that your User-Generated Content may be made and remain public.
We may, but do not always, monitor our community features, and ultimately you are responsible for your interactions with other musicians or music teachers. So please use good judgment and play fair.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other musicians, whether online or in person, including but not limited to comments, challenges, and friendly competition. We assume no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage resulting from any interaction with other musicians who employ our Service, individuals you meet through the Services, or individuals who find you because of Content posted on, by or through the Services.

Musicians cannot use our services to post pornographic material, harass people, send spam, violate intellectual property rights, or do other inappropriate stuff. Be reasonable and act responsibly.
Our Services are intended to be a safe and supportive community for all musicians or music teachers. To help everyone feel safe and to maintain that positive environment, we require everyone to agree to, and follow, these rules (the “Community Guidelines”) when posting User-Generated Content and using our Service. By using our Service you agree that your User-Generated Content and use of the Interactive Areas will not violate the Community Guidelines.

We reserve the right to enforce, or not enforce, these Community Guidelines in our sole discretion, and they don’t create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act in any particular manner.
(c) Objectionable User-Generated Content
It’s a big bad Internet out there, and people post inappropriate stuff on user-generated content sites all the time. We do our best to keep the community safe and secure (musicians and music teachers respecting the Community Guidelines helps), but you still might run into bad stuff before we have a chance to take it down. If you spot any objectionable Content, please let us know.
While we require all of our musicians and music teachers to comply with the Community Guidelines and reserve the right to monitor for violations, we ultimately cannot guarantee they will comply with the Community Guidelines or these Terms. If you believe any Content submitted to our Service violates the Community Guidelines, or if you know or suspect that someone is misusing your User-Generated Content, please report it to the Customer Support Team. By consenting to the Terms, you understand and acknowledge that when you access or otherwise use our Service:
We cannot be held responsible for any injury or harm to you resulting from objectionable User-Generated Content or another musician or teachers failure to comply with our Community Guidelines.

You and we agree to submit to the personal and exclusive arbitration of any disputes relating to your use of our service under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
Any arbitration between you and us, to the extent necessary, will be conducted in Baltimore, Maryland, and you waive any right to claim that such location is an inconvenient forum. You agree not to sue us or bring arbitration in any other forum.
The arbitration will be conducted in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Both you and we agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens for everyone involved:
Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will include a statement describing the reasons for the disposition of any claim.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us arising out of or relating to your use of the Services:
If this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under the Terms between us will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Baltimore, Maryland, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or MyTractice from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or MyTractice from applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary.
In the event of any litigation or arbitration arising from or related to these Terms, or the Services provided, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party all reasonable costs incurred including staff time, court costs, attorneys’ fees, and all other related expenses incurred in such litigation or arbitration.
If you are not a United States resident and you are accessing our Services from outside the United States, you agree to transfer certain information outside your home country to us, and that you will follow all the laws that apply to you.
We provide our Services for a global community of musicians. Our servers and operations are, however, located primarily in the United States, and our policies and procedures are based primarily on United States law. Because of this, the following provisions apply specifically to athletes located outside of the United States: (i) you consent to the transfer, storage, and processing of your information, including but not limited to User-Generated Content and any Personal Data, to and in the United States and/or other countries; (ii) if you are using the Services from a country embargoed by the United States, or are on the United States Treasury Department’s list of “Specially Designated Nationals,” you are not authorized to access or make use of the Services; and (iii) you agree to comply with all local laws, rules, and regulations including, without limitation, all laws, rules, and regulations in effect in the country in which you reside and the country from which you access the Services. The Services are not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation, or which that would subject MyTractice or its affiliates to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.
Even if you stop using the Services, certain Terms listed here will still apply.
If our relationship or these Terms terminate, it will not limit any of our other rights or remedies, and any provision of these Terms that must survive in order to give proper effect to the intent and purpose of these Terms will survive termination, including without limitation Sections 3 (Ownership and Use of Content), Section 10 (Physical Activities), 12 (No Warranties), 13 (Limitations of Liability) and 14 (Indemnification).
These miscellaneous provisions are part of just about every online terms agreement. Basically, they ensure that this agreement between us is enforceable.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of the Terms or your use of the Services. The Terms and any Product-Specific Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to your use of the Services.
Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer your account or your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. We have the right, in our sole discretion, to transfer or assign all or any part of our rights under these Terms and will have the right to delegate or use third-party contractors to fulfill our duties and obligations under these Terms and in connection with the Services.
Our notice to you via email, regular mail, or notices or links displayed in connection with the Services constitutes acceptable notice to you under the Terms. We are not responsible for your failure to receive notice if email is quarantined by your email security system (e.g., “junk” or “spam” folder) or if you fail to update your email address. Notice will be considered received forty-eight hours after it is sent if transmitted via email or regular mail. In the event that notice is provided via links displayed in connection with the Services, then it will be considered received twenty-four hours after it is first displayed.
