3. User Responsibilities

3.1 Backstreet Academy is an online venue: that connects customers (“Customers”) who seek local activities and experiences and organizations or individuals, who contract with Backstreet Academy to offer and provide such activities and experiences (“Experience Providers”). These activities and experiences are referred to as “Experiences”/ “Courses”. Each Experience will identify a host in the description of the Experience, who will provide and fulfill the Experience (each, a “Host”). Unless otherwise indicated in the description of the Experience, the Experience Provider is the Host. In some cases, the Experience Provider may subcontract or delegate the performance of its obligation to provide and fulfill the Experience to another party to serve as the Host for its Experience; in which case, the description of such Experience will list the designated Host and will separately identify the Experience Provider. In all cases, the Experience Provider is solely responsible for providing the Experience and is solely responsible for all acts and omissions of its Hosts; references to “Host” throughout these Terms of Use shall be deemed to include Experience Providers. We refer to Experience Providers and Customers, as well as any other Site visitors, as “users”. Customers may elect to purchase Experiences through the Services; and Backstreet Academy may facilitate communications between Customers and Hosts. To be clear: (a) the Experiences are not included in the definition of Services and (b) all agreements and interactions related to the Experiences (other than any obligations and representations you make directly to us in these Terms of Use) are directly between the Customer and Experience Provider and are governed by Sections 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 of these Terms of Use or such other agreement entered into between the Customer and Experience Provider. Backstreet Academy does not control the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the Experiences listed, the conduct of Customers, Experience Providers, Hosts or other participant in any Experience, the ability of Experience Providers to provide Experiences or the ability of Customers to pay for Experiences. Backstreet Academy merely provides a platform that allows people seeking an Experience to connect with people who provide the Experience. Backstreet Academy does not have any liability to any user related to any Experience. Experience Providers are liable for the acts and omissions of its Hosts.

3.2 Third-Party Content. In using the Services, you may be exposed to content and information, for example, data, text, files, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, messages, services or links, from other users or third parties (“Third-Party Content”), either at the Site or through links to third-party websites. Backstreet Academy does not control, and is not responsible or liable for, Third-Party Content posted on, transmitted through or linked from the Services. Such Third-Party Content is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Third-Party Content originated. You understand that by using the Services, you may be exposed to Third-Party Content that is incomplete, offensive, indecent, inaccurate, misleading, unlawful or otherwise objectionable. You must evaluate the veracity of, and bear all risks associated with your exposure to, Third-Party Content.

We do not investigate any user’s reputation, conduct, morality, and criminal background or verify the information that any user submits to the Site. We do not endorse any persons who use, or register for, the Services, whether as Customers or Experience Providers, or any Experience listed on the Site. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others whom you may contact or who may contact you by means of the Site. You agree to exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with other users. Backstreet Academy encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site and to review your Host and Experience Provider’s profile pages for feedback from other users. You may also wish to consider using a third-party service that provides additional user verification.

You agree that unless you obtain the consent of any Customer, you will use the personal information of the Customer provided to you by Backstreet Academy only to communicate with the Customer about the Experience in accordance with Section 9.2, and for no other purpose.

As an Experience Provider, if you subcontract or delegate the performance of any of your obligations under these Terms of Use or the Backstreet Academy Experience Provider Agreement to any third party to serve as the Host of your Experience, you will remain solely responsible and liable for all of your obligations, including financial obligations, and you will be responsible for all acts and omissions of the designated Host. You will require the Host to comply with all applicable restrictions and obligations imposed on you under these Terms of Use and the Backstreet Academy Experience Provider Agreement, and you will be solely responsible for your financial and contractual relationship with the Host.
