4. SCOPE OF FAMEBOOKING TERMS
The FameBooking Platform is an online marketplace that enables Members who are
Professionals to publish their availability to provide Professional Services on the
FameBooking Website (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with
Members who are Customers who seek to book such Professional Services. These
Professional Services may include signings, appearances, and speeches.
As the provider of the FameBooking Platform, FameBooking does not own, create, sell,
resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, supply or guaranty any Listing. Professionals
alone are responsible for their Listings and the Professional Services that they provide or
fail to provide. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract
between themselves; FameBooking is not and does not become a party to or otherwise
participate in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is FameBooking an agent,
manager, or insurer with respect to the relationship or any transaction between Members,
except as expressly provided in Section 8 under the heading “Service Fees”.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, FameBooking has no control over
and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any
Listings or Professional Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing, “Rating” (as
defined in Section 12 under the heading “Ratings”), or other “Member Content” (as defined
in Section 7 under the heading “Content”), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any
Member or any third party. FameBooking does not endorse any Member, Listing or
Professional Services. Any reference in these Terms or on the FameBooking Website to a
Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicates that the Member has completed
a process to provide information to FameBooking for administrative purposes nothing else.
Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by FameBooking of
the 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 before and
while using the FameBooking Platform.
If you choose to use the FameBooking Platform as a Member, your relationship with
FameBooking is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an
employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of FameBooking for any reason. FameBooking
does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance
under these Terms specifically, including, if you are a Professional, your provision of
To promote the FameBooking Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential
Customers, Listings and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in
applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements.
The FameBooking Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“ThirdParty Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and
conditions and privacy practices. FameBooking is not responsible or liable for the
availability or accuracy of such ThirdParty Services, or the content, products, or services
available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an
endorsement by FameBooking of such Third-Party Services.
Due to the nature of the Internet, FameBooking cannot guarantee the continuous and
uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the FameBooking Platform. FameBooking may
restrict the availability of the FameBooking Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if
this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of the servers hosting the
FameBooking Website, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or
improved functioning of the FameBooking Platform. FameBooking may improve, enhance
and modify the FameBooking Platform and introduce new or delete FameBooking Services
offered from time to time.
5. ELIGIBILITY, USING THE FAMEBOOKING PLATFORM, MEMBER VERIFICATION
You must be at least 18 years old, reside in the United States or any of its territories or
possessions and able to enter into legally binding contracts to access and use the
FameBooking Platform or register a FameBooking Account. By accessing or using the
FameBooking Platform you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older and have the
legal capacity and authority to enter into a contract.
You agree to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in your local jurisdiction in
connection with your use of the FameBooking Platform.
FameBooking may make access to and use of the FameBooking Platform, or certain areas
or features of the FameBooking Platform, subject to certain conditions or requirements,
such as completing a verification process, meeting specific eligibility criteria, meeting
Ratings thresholds, or a Member’s booking and cancellation history.
User verification on the Internet is difficult and we do not assume any responsibility for the
confirmation of any Member’s identity. Notwithstanding the above, for transparency and
fraud prevention purposes, and as permitted by applicable laws, we may, but have no
obligation to (i) ask Members to provide a form of government identification or other
information or undertake additional checks designed to help verify the identities or
backgrounds of Members, (ii) screen Members against third party databases or other
sources and request reports from service providers, and (iii) where we have sufficient
information to identify a Member, obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions
or sex offender registrations or an equivalent version of background or registered sex
offender checks in your local jurisdiction (if available).
The access to or use of certain areas and features of the FameBooking Platform may be
subject to separate policies, standards or guidelines, or may require that you accept
additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and
conditions applicable to a specific area or feature of the FameBooking Platform, the latter
terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your access to or use of that area
or feature, unless specified otherwise.
6. ACCOUNT REGISTRITION
You must register an account (“FameBooking Account”) to access and use the
FameBooking Platform. If you register as a company or other form of entity, you represent
and warrant to us that you have the authority to legally bind that entity with respect to these
Terms and that by registering a FameBooking Account, such entity is not violating any
agreement to which it is a party or by which any of its property is bound. If you are an
individual, you should only register a FameBooking Account for yourself. When you register
a FameBooking Account as an individual, you represent and warrant to us that you have the
legal capacity to agree to these Terms and that your registration of a FameBooking Account
does not violate any agreement to which you are a party or by which any of your property is

process and keep your FameBooking Account and public FameBooking Account profile
page information up-to-date at all times.

FameBooking Account to any other person or entity unless you have express written
consent from FameBooking to do so.

Account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any other person or entity.

your credentials have been lost, stolen, misappropriated, or otherwise compromised or in
case of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your FameBooking Account. You are
liable for any and all activities conducted through your FameBooking Account, unless such
activities are not authorized by you and you are not otherwise negligent (such as failing to
report the unauthorized use or loss of your credentials).
FameBooking may enable features that allow you to authorize other Members or certain
third parties to take certain actions that affect your FameBooking Account. For example, we
may allow eligible Members or certain third parties to book Listings on behalf of other
Members, or we may allow “Professionals” to add other Members as “Agent/Managers” (as
defined in Section 9 below under the heading “Terms Specific to Professionals”) to help
manage their Listings. These features do not require that you share your credentials with
any other person. No third party is authorized by FameBooking to ask for your credentials,
and you shall not request the credentials of another Member.

receive and store content, such as text, photos, audio, video, or other materials and
information on or through the FameBooking Platform (“Member Content”); and (ii) access
and view Member Content and any content that FameBooking itself makes available on or
through the FameBooking Platform, including proprietary FameBooking content and any
content licensed or authorized for use by or through FameBooking from a third party

Customers (“Customer Service Fees”) (Professional Service Fees and Customer Service
Fees are collectively referred to in these Terms as “Service Fees”) for using the
FameBooking Platform. Service Fees and any applicable Sales Taxes will be displayed to
the to the Customer prior to Customer booking the Listing.
Any applicable service fees charged to the Professional will be displayed to the Professional
on the booking page. FameBooking reserves the right to change Professional Fees and
Customer Fees at any time. FameBooking will provide the Professionals and/or Customers,
as the case may be, reasonable prior notice of any such change before the change
Customer Service Fees will be collected by FameBooking at checkout. FameBooking will
deduct Professional Service Fees prior to payout to Professionals for completed bookings.
Customers may also be required to pay sales, value added or similar taxes (“Sales
Taxes”) depending on the laws of the applicable jurisdiction. FameBooking has the right to
deduct its Service Fees and any required Sales Taxes from amounts it collects from
Customers for each booked Listing before remitting payment to the Professional. Service
Fees are non-refundable unless otherwise determined by us in our absolute and sole
If FameBooking deducts Sales Taxes as described above, FameBooking or its agent will
remit the Sales Taxes to the appropriate taxing authority.
9. TERMS SPECIFIC TO PROFESSIONALS
Terms applicable to all Listings
When creating a Listing through the FameBooking Platform, you must (i) provide complete
and accurate information about the Professional Services you are offering (such as listing
description, pricing, and calendar availability), (ii) disclose any restrictions regarding the
Professional Services that you are offering (such as what you will not autograph), and (iii)
provide any other pertinent information requested by FameBooking. Any terms and
conditions included in your Listing, in particular pertaining to cancellations, must not conflict
with these Terms or the relevant cancellation policy for your Listing. You are responsible for
keeping your Listing information (including calendar availability) up-to-date at all times.
You are solely responsible for setting the price for the Professional Services covered by
your Listing (“Appearance Fee”), and that price must include (i) any Sales Taxes that are
required to be collected and paid and (ii) any “Agent Fee” (as defined below under the
heading “Agents”. Once a Customer requests a booking of your Listing, you may not
change your Appearance Fee except to reflect any change in Sales Taxes required by law
that came into effect after the posting of your Listing and you receive the Customer’s
request to book that Listing.
The placement and ranking of Listings in search results on the FameBooking Platform may
vary and depend on a variety of factors, such as Customer search parameters and
preferences, Professional requirements, price and calendar availability, number and quality
of images, customer service and cancellation history, Ratings, type of Professional Service,
and ease of booking.
When you accept a request by a Customer for a booking, you are entering into a legally
binding agreement with that Customer and are required to provide your Professional
Services to that Customer as described in your Listing. FameBooking’s related Service Fee
also becomes payable at that time. If you thereafter cancel the booking, FameBooking may
(i) keep the calendar for the Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled
booking, and/or (ii) impose a cancellation fee on you (which you agree to promptly pay)
unless FameBooking determines that you have a valid reason for cancelling the booking.
FameBooking recommends that Professionals obtain appropriate insurance for their
Professional Services. Please review any 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 whether or not your insurance policy will
cover the actions or inactions of Customers during a booking.
By accepting the booking submitted by a customer, you are agreeing that the customer may
also have the right to use your likeness as a promotion for their company or promote the
scheduled service they have booked you for. For example, if a car dealership books you for
a public autograph signing they are free to promote that in an ad or social media post, if a
customer books your services for an appearance or speaking engagement for their
organization they might use your likeness to promote their the event.
When requested by a Professional, FameBooking may enable the Professional to authorize
one or more other persons (“Agents”) to administer the Professional’s Listings and to take
certain actions in relation to his or her Listings as permitted by the particular Professional
that will be binding on the Professional. These actions could include accepting booking
requests, messaging Customers, and updating the Appearance Fee and calendar
availability (collectively, “Agent Services”). Any agreement formed between a Professional
and an Agent (“Agent Agreement”) is between the Professional and the Particular Agent;
FameBooking is not a party to any Agent Agreement and shall have no liability to the
Professional or to the Agent arising out of or relating to any Agent Agreement other than to
remit the Agent Fee to the Agent as described below. Any Agent Agreement entered into
between a Professional and an Agent may not conflict with these Terms or any other
FameBooking policies applicable to Professional Services. Professionals agree to provide
FameBooking with complete and current copies of any Agent Agreement to which they are
a party promptly following FameBooking’s request.
FameBooking shall have the right but not the obligation to remit to an Agent the fee payable
to such Agent for performing Agent Services (“Agent Fee”). Each such remittance that may
be made shall be made from the Appearance Fee collected from the Customer at the time
such Appearance Fee is collected or within a reasonable time thereafter. The Professional
shall be responsible for notifying FameBooking in writing of the correct amount of the Agent
Fee before the Professional posts the related Listing.
An Agent may only act in an individual capacity and not on behalf of a company or other
organization unless expressly authorized by FameBooking in writing. FameBooking
reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to limit the number of Agents a Professional utilizes
for each Listing and to limit the number of Listings an Agent may manage.
Professionals should exercise due diligence and care when deciding to utilize Agents in
connection with the FameBooking Platform. Professionals remain responsible and liable for
any and all Listings and Member Content published by or for them on the FameBooking
Platform, including any Listing created by an Agent on their behalf. Further, Professionals
continue to remain responsible and liable for their own acts and omissions, including
conduct that causes harm or damage to their Agents; FameBooking has no responsibility or
liability in that regard.
Agents are responsible and liable for their acts and omissions when engaging in their roles
and responsibilities as an Agent, including conduct that causes harm or damage to the
Professional; FameBooking has no responsibility or liability in that regard.
Each Professional hereby agrees to agree to defend (at FameBooking’s option), indemnify,
and hold FameBooking and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their respective officers,
directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities,
damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses,
and expenses, including reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way
connected or arising out of a Agent Agreement, including (i) such Professional’s retainer of
one or more Agents to assist such Professional in connection with the FameBooking
Platform, (ii) such Professional’s use of one or more Agents to assist such Professional in
connection with the FameBooking Platform, and (iii) the acts or failures to act of any Agent.
An Agent’s access to the FameBooking Platform will terminate as a result of (i) the
termination of the Agent Agreement to which the Agent is a party, and (ii) FameBooking’s
receipt of written notice of such termination from either such Agent or the Professional.
When a Agent Agreement is so terminated, the Professional will immediately notify
FameBooking in writing of the termination and will remain responsible for all of the Agent’s
actions prior FameBooking’s receipt of such notice of termination, including the
responsibility to fulfill any pending or future bookings initiated prior to the termination.
FameBooking also has the right to terminate an Agent’s access to the FameBooking
Platform for any or no reason at any time upon no less than ten (10) days’ written notice to
the Agent’s Professional; provided that FameBooking may immediately terminate such
access by written notice to the Agent’s Professional if the reason for doing so is a good faith
belief that the Agent’s continued access to the FameBooking Platform could cause harm to
FameBooking, any Customer, any Professional or any other party.
The Professional Manager will be responsible for onboarding people of notoriety to
FameBooking’s online booking platform. Onboarding includes finding the Professional,
having the Professional sign up on FameBooking’s platform, working with Professional to
ensure the Professional is responding in a timely manner to booking requests (48 hours),
attending bookings they agree to, and receiving positive reviews from Customer requested
services. Professional Managers may be assigned/access Professional’s accounts,
messages, booking requests, etc in order to help FameBooking operate.
10. TERMS SPECIFIC TO CUSTOMERS
Terms applicable to all Bookings
Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification processes) set by
FameBooking and/or the Professional, you can request to book a Listing available on the
FameBooking Platform (a “Booking”) by following the Booking process. All applicable fees
and any applicable Sales Taxes (defined above as the “Appearance Fee”) will be presented
to you prior to booking a Listing. You agree to pay the Appearance Fee for any booking you
request and that we confirm as described below.
A legally binding agreement is formed between you and the Professional upon your receipt
of a Booking confirmation from FameBooking. The Appearance Fee is payable, and
FameBooking will collect the Appearance Fee from you at the time of, or immediately
following, FameBooking’s confirmation. For certain Bookings in FameBooking’s discretion,
you may be required to pay or have the option to pay the Appearance Fee in multiple
As a Customer, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also
responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise
provide access to, the Booking. Each Customer hereby agrees to defend (at
FameBooking’s option), indemnify, and hold FameBooking and its affiliates and
subsidiaries, and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from
and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (whether compensatory, direct,
incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses, and expenses, including reasonable legal
and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected or arising out the acts and
omissions of such Customer relating to or occurring at a Booking and the acts or omissions
relating to or occurring at a Booking of all individuals whom such Customer invites to, or
otherwise permits access to, the Booking.
If you book a Professional Service on behalf of additional participants, you are required to
ensure that every additional participant meets any requirements set by the Professional,
and is made aware of and agrees to these Terms and any terms and conditions, rules and
restrictions set by the Professional. If you are undertaking a Booking for an additional
participant 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 an autograph signing, appearance, or
other Professional Service if accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.
You are allowed to use your hired professional's likeness to promote your upcoming event
(for example, promoting a public autograph signing), and may continue to use it for up to 30
days after the event for promotional internet posts, newsletters, and thank you letters. After
that month long period, you do not retain the rights to use the professional's likeness.
Booking a Professional Service
You should carefully review the description of any Listing you intend to book to ensure you
(and any additional participants you are booking for) meet any requirements that the
Professional has specified in his or her Listing. At your sole discretion, you may want to
inform the Professional of any medical or physical conditions or other circumstances that
may impact your and any additional participants’ ability to participate in the Booking. You
are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules, and
regulations that apply to your participation in a Booking.
You must at all times adhere to the Professional’s reasonable instructions before and during
11. BOOKING MODIFICATIONS, CANCELATIONS AND REFUNDS
Professionals and Customers are responsible for any modifications to a Booking that they
make via the FameBooking Platform or that they may direct FameBooking customer service
to make, and agree to pay any additional fees and taxes associated with such modifications
that FameBooking may charge.
Customers may cancel a Booking at any time pursuant to FameBooking’s cancellation
policy (below), and FameBooking will refund the amount of the Appearance Fees that is
refundable to the Customer in accordance with such cancellation policy. Unless extenuating
circumstances exist, any portion of the Appearance Fee payable to the Professional under
the FameBooking cancellation policy will be remitted to the Professional by FameBooking.
A Professional has ultimate discretion if he or she wants to waive cancellation policy
payments or reschedule the event at no additional cost.
FameBooking Cancellation Policy – Cancellation by Customer: (Amount of Appearance Fee
to be refunded):
0 Hours- 72 Hours Before Event: 0% Refund to Customer
72 Hours-Two Weeks Before Event: 50% Refund to Customer
Two Weeks-One Month+ Before Event: 75% Refund to Customer
FameBooking Cancellation Policy – Cancellation by Professional: (Amount of
Appearance Fee to be refunded): If a Professional cancels a Booking, the Customer will
receive a full refund of the Appearance Fee paid by the Customer for such Booking within a
commercially reasonable time after the cancellation.
For any Booking, if inclement weather creates an unsafe scenario for Professionals or
Customers, Professional’s may modify or cancel the Booking without liability to
FameBooking or the Customer. FameBooking will work with the Professional and the
Customer to provide the Customer an alternative date for the Professional Service or an
appropriate refund or a rebooking.
In certain circumstances, FameBooking may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is
necessary to cancel a Booking and make what it deems to be appropriate refund and
payout decisions. This may be for reasons set forth (i) where FameBooking believes in
good faith, while taking the legitimate interests of both parties into account, this is necessary
to avoid significant harm to FameBooking, other Members, third parties or (ii) for any of the
reasons set out in these Terms. All such decisions by FameBooking shall be binding on
Professionals and Customers without right of appeal.
If, as a Professional, your Customer cancels a Booking or FameBooking decides that it is
necessary to cancel a Booking, and FameBooking issues a refund to the Customer, or other
applicable cancellation policy, you agree that in the event you have already been paid,
FameBooking will be entitled to recover the amount of any such refund from you, including
by subtracting such refund amount from any future payments due to you from
Within a certain time frame after completing a Booking, Customers and Professionals can
leave a public rating (“Rating”) about each other. Ratings are part of a Member’s public
profile and may also appear elsewhere on the FameBooking Platform (such as the Listing
page) together with other relevant information such as number of Bookings, number of
cancellations, average response time and other information.
Members are prohibited from manipulating the Rating system in any manner, such as by
instructing a third party to leave a positive or negative review about another Member.
Ratings reflect the opinions of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of
FameBooking. Reviews are not verified by FameBooking for accuracy and may be incorrect
Ratings are disabled when a cancellation is in effect.
13. INCOME TAXES
As a Professional you are solely responsible for determining your obligations to report,
collect, remit, any and all taxes applicable to your performance of Professional Services (“Income
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate Tax information from Professionals, or
to withhold Taxes from payouts to Professionals, or both. If a Professional fails to provide us
with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to
withhold Taxes from payouts to you, we reserve the right to freeze all payouts, withhold
such amounts as required by law, or to do both, until resolution.
You understand that any appropriate governmental agency, department and/or authority
(“Tax Authority”) where your Listings are located may require Taxes to be collected from
Customers or Professionals on Bookings, and to be remitted to the appropriate Tax
Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these Taxes may be required to be
collected and remitted as a percentage of the amount collected from the Booking.
You agree that any claim or cause of action relating to FameBooking's facilitation of
collection and remittance of Taxes shall not extend to any supplier or vendor that may be
used by FameBooking in connection with facilitation of collection and remittance, if any.
Customers and Professionals agree that we may seek additional amounts from you in the
event that the Taxes collected and/or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge your
obligations to the Tax Authority, and agree that your sole remedy for Taxes collected by
FameBooking is a refund of such Taxes from the applicable Tax Authority in accordance
