16. The "Never Miss a Show Again" Tagline
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
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.
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.
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

be able to add to, subtract from, interpolate or otherwise modify

no control over these potential uses and modifications by other

to the fullest extent of the law and will hold Bandega harmless
against any claims that such uses or modifications have injured
