15. Comments
If you have any comments or questions about the Service please contact us info@bandega.com.

16. The "Never Miss a Show Again" Tagline
You understand that, while Bandega strives to provide as much up-to-date information about live music performances, you may still miss such performances, as a result of inaccurate or delayed information, or from simply not being informed in the first place. In other words, Bandega does NOT guarantee the accuracy of the information it provides, although it will use reasonable efforts to provide accurate information. You agree that you are personally responsible for learning about this information on your own, and that you will not hold Bandega liable in the event that you miss a show or receive inaccurate information, or suffer some other inconvenience or damage resulting from any inaccuracy in the information provided by Bandega. You acknowledge that if you did not agree to the provisions of this paragraph (and to the balance of this agreement, both A and B), Bandega would not agree to provide you with the information on its site.

Part B: Additional Provisions Applicable to Users Who Have Created Accounts ("Account Users")

In addition to the provisions of Part A of these Terms, the following provisions shall apply to Account Users of the Service.

17. Registration
You agree that the information that you provide to us on registration and at all other times will be true, accurate, current and complete. You also agree that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up to date at all times. This is especially important with respect to your e-mail address, since that is the primary way in which we will communicate with you about your account and your orders.

18. Password
When you create an account, you will be asked to provide a password. As you will be responsible for all activities that occur under your password, you should keep your password confidential. You must notify Bandega immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or if you believe that your password is no longer confidential. We reserve the right to require you to alter your password if we believe that your password is no longer secure.

19. Posting Reviews
If you submit a review for a band's live concert, you understand and agree that anyone with access to the Site will be able to access, use and/or disclose any information that you include in any such review (including, without limitation, any personal information such as your name, e-mail address, etc.) and will be able to add to, subtract from, interpolate or otherwise modify or comment upon the information that you include. Bandega has no control over these potential uses and modifications by other persons. For avoidance of doubt, therefore, you understand that by submitting a review you knowingly accept the risk that these uses and modifications of your review may be made and you waive to the fullest extent of the law and will hold Bandega harmless against any claims that such uses or modifications have injured or damaged you, under any theory of law. In addition, Bandega reserves the right to make all decisions regarding which reviews are posted and has full editing power over the content. Furthermore, you agree, by submitting a review, that you are conveying to Bandega, all rights under copyright that you may own in such review and that Bandega is the exclusive owner under copyright and otherwise owns the content of your review and is therefore not required to provide any form of compensation to the user who submitted the review.
