1. Comply with local laws, local zoning ordinances, and tax laws at all times.
Studiotime is not liable for ensuring compliance and it is the responsibility of studios and each listing owner to ensure all local laws, zoning ordinance, and also tax compliance are met. You must also legally report income generated from Studiotime to your business and it is your responsibility to do so. If you are responsible for charging local taxes on services, you must also comply with these regulations.
2. Accurate representation of the studios, pricing, and services of each studio.
Most artists and those looking to book your space have not seen the studio in person, so be honest and clearly represent the studio and the services that you are offering. Do not misrepresent pricing or dishonestly make claims by any means. We will take proactive action if it is reported or discovered that you are misrepresenting your studio or the services that you offer.
3. Only list and offer a studio that you are permissioned to offer.
Only list the studio that you are permissioned to offer and have the authority to do so for. If you are subletting a space and are not permitted to then further offer it, do not offer it on Studiotime without consent by the owner to do so. If it is discovered that you are offering a studio on Studiotime that you do not have permission to offer, the listing will be immediately removed and your account is subject to be removed from our site.
1. Comply with all studio rules, policies, and booking agreement.
All artists and those that have booked a studio through Studiotime must only use the studio as described by the studio listing owner, and as agreed upon in the booking agreement. Studios take pride in their space, the equipment, and their profession and will be expecting the same professional respect and courtesy that they are providing.
2. Never engage in illegal or prohibited activity on studio premises.
All local laws are enforceable and studio owners can notify authorities if laws are being broken on their property or on their studio premises. Never engage in any illegal activity on studio property or premises.
