StageAgent.org offers you the option of creating a Teacher Account which allows you to access a teacher administration portal where you can create a profile, view lesson plans, create Groups, view reports, and create Passcodes for your students to join your Groups and access StageAgent Materials.

Please be aware that celebrities, and sometimes others, may have a "right of publicity," which means that they may have a right to control commercial uses of their name, image, likeness, and other aspects of their identity. Although you may be a fan, you risk infringing celebrity rights if you use a celebrity name or likeness on the Websites and you don't have the celebrity's permission. StageAgent reserves the right to remove any Content contained in or posted to the Websites that StageAgent determines in its sole discretion does or may allegedly infringe another person's copyright, trademark, celebrity material or other rights.
Notices to StageAgent regarding any alleged infringement on the Websites should be directed to StageAgent's General Counsel's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You understand that you may not (i) select or use a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; (ii) use the rights of any person without authorization; or (iii) use a name that StageAgent, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate. You agree that any information that you provide to the Websites, including but not limited to User Information, shall be true and accurate and current, and you are responsible for updating such information to keep it true, accurate and current. If you create a user account with the Websites, you accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password and you agree you will not sell, transfer or assign your user account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, if any, and for restricting access to your computer so that others may not access any password-protected portion of the Websites (including the Paid Services) using your name, user name or password in whole or in part.

Subscription Terms, Fees and Payments; Automatic Renewal and Cancellation.
StageAgent offers month-to-month, quarterly (3 month) and annual (12 month) subscriptions on StageAgent.com and annual (12 month) subscriptions on StageAgent.org to all Paid Services. The length of the subscription period is selected by you during the enrollment process.
All Subscriptions are Automatically Renewing.
When you initially subscribe to the Paid Services, your credit or debit card will be charged immediately for the initial term of the subscription at the then-current fee for the applicable subscription period.
When you initially subscribe to a free trial on StageAgent.org of the Paid Services, you will be not charged for the initial term of the free trial. Unless you notify StageAgent of your decision to terminate your subscription or, as applicable, your free trial, your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term or free trial (if applicable) at the then-current fee.
You will be charged in advance for the renewal term of the subscription service (or initial term, in the case of a renewal following the expiration of an applicable free trial) on your applicable billing date (the "Billing Date"), which will be the corresponding monthly, quarterly or annual anniversary of the activation date of your subscription. If, however, the activation date of your subscription (or, as applicable, your free trial) is on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and your Billing Date does not exist in a particular month because there are fewer than thirty-one (31) days in the month payment is due, your Billing Date for that particular renewal (or initial term, in the case of a renewal following the expiration of an applicable free trial) will be on the last day of the month in which your Billing Date would otherwise be. Each charge on the applicable Billing Date applies to the subscription period immediately following the Billing Date (e.g., a charge for a monthly subscription applies to the month immediately following the Billing Date). You understand that any applicable sales or use taxes will be payable by you, and may be included in each periodic statement.
StageAgent may, in its sole discretion, suspend access to your account or deactivate your account without notice to you if StageAgent is unable to process your payment or if payment is past due, regardless of the amount. You agree to pay any outstanding balance in full within thirty (30) days of cancellation or termination of your subscription. You may update any of your billing information (including a change to your desired billing payment method) through your account settings on StageAgent.com or StageAgent.org.
COMPLETING THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO THE PAID SERVICES:
Opting Out Of Renewal.
YOU MAY TERMINATE ENROLLMENT IN AUTOMATIC RENEWAL AT ANY TIME BY UPDATING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IN YOUR STAGEAGENT ACCOUNT SETTINGS OR BY EMAILING INFO@STAGEAGENT.COM. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO THE PAID SERVICES SHALL BE DEEMED TERMINATED ON THE LAST DAY OF THE THEN IN EFFECT SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD. YOU AGREE THAT EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN, THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE ONCE PAID.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU, AND NOT STAGEAGENT, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY WHICH WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
Unless you notify StageAgent of any discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your payment statement, they will be deemed accepted by you and you release StageAgent from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any such error or discrepancy.
Fees Subject to Change.
StageAgent may change the fees and charges then in effect by giving you notice in advance or by posting the changed fees online at https://stageagent.com/signup. It is your responsibility to check the current fees. All fees and charges incurred in connection with your user name(s) and password(s) will be billed to the credit or debit card you designate during the registration process. If you want to designate a different credit or debit card or there is a change in your credit or debit card validity or expiration date, you must update your information through your account settings on StageAgent.com or StageAgent.org.
Cancellations and Refunds.
On StageAgent.org, you may cancel a free trial via the Site through your subscription settings at any time during the free trial period and incur no charge. After the free trial is complete, you will be charged at the rate and schedule selected when you enrolled in the trial.
On StageAgent.com, you may cancel your subscription at any time via the Site through your account settings. Cancelling via your account settings will stop all future renewal charges and you will retain access to Paid Services until your subscription expires.
Monthly subscriptions are not eligible for a refund, but can be cancelled to prevent additional future charges. For all initial purchases of subscriptions longer than one month, you may cancel prior to renewal to prevent future renewal charges; or cancel during the first five (5) days after renewal to remain eligible for a full refund on the renewal payment. If the cancellation occurs after the first five days or if the charge was for a monthly subscription, you will not receive a refund. For all renewals of subscriptions longer than one month, you may cancel within five days of the renewal date and receive a full refund; cancellations made after this period are not eligible for a refund. Monthly subscriptions (both initial subscriptions and renewals) may be cancelled at any time but you will not receive a refund. If you cancel your subscription but are not eligible for a refund, you will retain access to the Websites until your subscription expires.
Refund requests may be made by filing a customer support ticket at https://help.stageagent.org, or by emailing email@example.com. Please include the full name and email address associated with the account. Your request must be received by end of business (5:00 p.m. Pacific Time) on the appropriate day as described above, or earlier.
