Updated September 20, 2019.
Please carefully review the following. By becoming a member of Talent Maker City, ("TMC") or otherwise using our website, you acknowledge that you have completely read, understood and consented to these Terms and Conditions.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY
TMC is an inclusive organization that does not tolerate discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, age, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or on any other basis prohibited by state or federal law.
TMC memberships are available for adults, 18 years and older. Unless otherwise specified, TMC workshops are open to anyone 18 years and older. Youth 16-17 may attend workshops provided a legal guardian has met with a TMC staff member and has signed a liability waiver. Youth ages 10-15 may attend workshops with an adult and a waiver signed by a legal guardian, with prior approval by TMC staff. For safety reasons, not all workshops are appropriate from youth under 16.
If any member or workshop participant intentionally or negligently damages or removes TMC facilities or equipment in clear violation of TMC's safety or facility policies, TMC reserves the right to bill said TMC member or workshop participant for the cost to repair or replace the damaged item.
AUTOMATIC MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL
TMC automatically bills members on a recurring basis on the first of each month for monthly memberships, and the day before the annual membership anniversary date for annual memberships. Members may cancel their own accounts online at https://members.talentmakercity.org at any time. All membership cancellations must occur prior to the next bill date. It is the member’s responsibility to cancel their own membership before the next billing period. Bookings, locker storage, or other extras are invoiced separately on a monthly basis.
MEMBERSHIP REFUND POLICY
TMC offers refunds if membership is canceled within 5 days of the charge. After 5 days of the charge, TMC does not offer membership refunds except for specific events, such as moving over 25 miles from the area, disability or death. A 10% processing fee will be assessed for all membership refunds. Please send refund inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WORKSHOP CANCELLATION POLICY
Please send refund or rescheduling requests to email@example.com. Although we make our best effort to accommodate any late-notice cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances, TMC is not responsible for providing refunds for workshops, or other programming missed due to illness, emergencies, or events beyond our control with less than 24-hour notice. A 10% processing fee will be assessed for all canceled or rescheduled individual workshop registrations. TMC reserves the right to cancel programming at any time and will notify students via email and/or phone. In the case of a workshop cancellation, TMC will notify workshop takers no less than 24 hours before the scheduled workshop. In the rare event that TMC cancels a workshop, a full refund will be provided. If a workshop should fail to meet minimum enrollment 2 days prior to the scheduled meeting, the workshop will be canceled. If a student misses a single workshop in a series or portion of a workshop, TMC and its instructors are not responsible for makeup sessions. Students should inform TMC as soon as they are aware of a session they will miss. In some cases, the student may need to sign up for 1:1 instruction time in order to catch up.
By becoming a member or by attending a TMC workshop, individuals consent that TMC has full and unrestricted publishing and use rights for any photographs (digital or print) or other recordings taken on TMC property by TMC employees or volunteers in which any image, materials or art, either brought into or created/generated at TMC, appears. Participants hereby release, discharge, and agree to hold harmless TMC from any liability by virtue of any blurring, distortion, alteration, optical illusion, or use in composite form whether intentional or otherwise, that may occur or be produced in the taking of said picture or in any subsequent processing thereof, as well as any publication thereof, including without limitation any claims for libel or invasion of privacy. TMC retains the intellectual property rights of any such picture.
All firearms and other weapons are expressly prohibited on the premises. This includes weapons covered under a Concealed Weapons Permit.
Projects or materials may be stored at TMC only with the permission of a TMC staff member and provided they are stored in a location that is not hazardous or inconvenient. Such projects or materials must be properly labeled with the maker's full name, the date it will be removed, and a phone number of the project owner. Unlabeled items left on the premises for more than 48 hours or after membership expires will be removed. TMC will make an effort to notify individuals before material/projects are removed. TMC is not responsible for any item left at TMC under any circumstances.
Lockers for temporary project storage are available on a limited basis; additional rental fees apply. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request temporary project storage. TMC reserves the right to restrict the materials and equipment members and participants may bring to the TMC facility if such items have the potential to impede TMC staff, member or workshop participant use and enjoyment of the TMC facility. All solvents and other chemicals brought to the shop must have prior clearance from TMC staff.
TMC provides workshop access for limited production runs of goods. Select pieces of equipment are available at an additional charge for scheduled use up to 4 hours (see Resources tab). Prior review and approval of the production plan is required by TMC staff. At the discretion of TMC and its staff, any members viewed as doing large scale production work that uses resources above and beyond membership dues in any of the TMC shops will be notified to stop production, and membership may be canceled and any associated fees relating to production may be charged to said member's account.
Due to liability concerns, no guests of members or otherwise are permitted in the shop unless they are accompanied by a staff member. All guests must sign in at the front desk.
TMC does not permit and will not tolerate any inappropriate conduct. Such conduct includes, without limitation, intoxication, using loud, abusive, offensive, insulting, demeaning language, profanity, lewd conduct or any conduct that harasses or is bothersome to members, guests, or TMC employees.
VIOLATION OF POLICIES OR RULES
If any member or guest violates any TMC policies or these Terms and Conditions, TMC may ask that person to stop work and leave the premises. A member’s violation of any of the policies, Terms, and Conditions, may also cause TMC in its sole discretion, to terminate that person’s membership and/or other agreements with no right to a refund.
TMC does not sell or otherwise share personal information collected in our facility or via our website at www.talentmakercity.org.
All new members are required to successfully complete a New Member Orientation prior to working in the shop in any capacity. Members must sign the Safety Orientation Acknowledgement and Waiver of Liability form after completing the orientation.
