Dear prospective clients and musician, welcome to our world.
FrontRow is an online platform that provides access to a database of musicians with a range of genres for clients requiring music for recording, live events or other purposes. Our services allow musicians to showcase their music, and send invoices for work done and receive payment for such.
We provide a platform where music buyers can communicate with listed musicians, thereby making searching and booking easy and efficient.
In these terms, the following are translated to mean:
FrontRow Content - All Content that FrontRow makes accessible through the Site, other applications, or Services. This excludes Member Content, but includes any Third Party Licensed Content. It encompasses content, design, pictures, music, programming, sound, video, data or different materials.
Member Content - All Content that a Member posts, uploads, submits, transmits, or incorporates into their Listing or Member profile to be made accessible through the Site, Application or Services. FrontRow does not claim ownership rights in Members Content.

Musician - a Member who uploads a profile through the Site or Application and whose information is kept up on the FrontRow database as being accessible to provide musical compositions for Clients.
Listing - an opportunity that is listed by a Client as available for application via the Site or Application.

Fees- the musician’s rate for performance at events and for sales of a musical composition, any related expenses, in addition to our administration expense of 2 percent.
Our Site, Application and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of opportunities for musicians. Unregistered visitors can view Listings and Musicians, but cannot book musicians or apply for a Listing without first registering to create a FrontRow Account.
FrontRow is not an owner, operator or provider of musical services and does not own, manage and/or control musicians or licenses. We make available an online platform for Musicians and Clients to meet online and arrange for bookings of music-related activities. We may also serve as payment collection agents for Musicians for the purpose of receiving payments from Clients on behalf of the Musicians.
Musicians can supply a profile on the platform which outlines their skill set and markets services they have to offer. These profiles are made available through the Site and other FrontRow applications. Clients can make/book a request for music-related services through the Site.

You are under obligation to conform to all local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content. You are also responsible for all applicable taxes payable as a result of your activity on the Site.

Based upon the information provided therein, other Members registered on the Site can apply for your Listing via the Site, Application and Services. Once a Musician requests a booking of a Listing, Clients agree that they may not offer the Musician a reduced fee from what was stated in the booking request.
The Musicians, not FrontRow, have the absolute responsibility for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available the Services booked through the Site, Application and Services. Clients are required to enter into an agreement with the Musician and any terms, rules and constraints imposed by the Musician are to be accepted by such Clients. Clients, and not FrontRow, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, and FrontRow is not a party to such agreements, with the exception of its payment obligations.
The Total Fees Payable will be displayed to a Client before the Client sends a booking request to a Musician. The Musician is required to either affirm or reject the booking demand within the Request Period; if not, the requested booking will be automatically made void. Should a requested booking be canceled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Musician), any amounts collected by FrontRow will be refunded to such Client, depending on the selections the Client makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Client's credit card will be released, if applicable.
You as a Client agree to pay FrontRow for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your FrontRow Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Musician.
When a musician is engaged for an opportunity via a Listing or direct contact with the musician through the Site, FrontRow charges a percentage of the Service payment, traditionally 2 per cent. This fee also applies for any Listing added through the Site in which a Member musician receives payment for at any time, regardless of where consequent communication took place.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in GBP. The client must ensure that their accounts are up-to-date, and paid in full; the account may otherwise be suspended until all unsettled fees are fully paid. All fees and applicable taxes associated with using FrontRow will be borne solely by the Client. If fees are due to FrontRow then we will invoice the Client for the amount due.
If FrontRow terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your FrontRow fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay FrontRow for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. Clients risk penalties such as termination of account, suspension of privileges, and/or legal action if the Client's account is not fully settled.
We will be proactive in resolving any payment processing mistakes, as we become aware of them. These steps may include crediting or charging (as suitable) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you.
As the cancellation policy is set by Musicians, it may vary between different Musicians. Where FrontRow acts as payment collection agent for a Musician, FrontRow will also be responsible for facilitating refunds where applicable.
Booking within FrontRow: If you make a cancellation more than 3 months before the event you will get 50% of your deposit back. If you make a cancellation between 90 and 30 days before your event we will not refund your deposit.
