Tutti Terms of Service
Updated November 1st, 2018
Tutti is an online marketplace that allows you to discover and book rehearsal spaces and also offer your rehearsal space to artists. Please read our service agreement carefully below prior to using our marketplace and its services as it governs your use of our platform.
Importantly, this Usage Agreement contains waivers of class actions and jury trials and an agreement to submit all claims and disputes to binding arbitration in Section 4 below. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this Usage Agreement, including those governing disputes in Section 4, you may not use our platform or services.
This Tutti Services Agreement (“Agreement”) is a contract between DBMA Ltd (“Tutti” or “we”) and the person(s) that are registered with Tutti (“user” or “you”). This Agreement describes the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Tutti marketplace to book or list rehearsal spaces or other rehearsal venue services through our website or apps and governs your rehearsal space for other users; and establishes the obligations owed between you and Tutti, and between you and other users.
Throughout this Agreement, the term “Service” means the service allowing you to book rehearsal spaces or offer your rehearsal space and rehearsal venue services to others through our website or apps (the “Platform”). The term Service does not include any services provided by third parties. The terms “Artist” and “Space” refer to the party Booking or Listing a Rehearsal Space, respectively.
A “Space” is the physical space or music studio that is made available to an Artist to use during specific times, and subject to specific Fees and any site-specific terms or limitations. A Space may “List” a Space by providing certain details about the Space including availability, pricing, and terms or limitations of use; this posting about a Space is called a “Listing.”
An artist may “Book” a Space by accepting the times, fees, and any additional terms (such as fees for Additional Engineering Services) or limitations of the Listing. A “Booking” is (i) only the grant of a limited, temporary, revocable license to use a Space, and (ii) if applicable, a contract for Rehearsal Venue services, in the manner, for the time, and subject to all restrictions provided, subject to this Agreement, and as confirmed through the Platform. The scope of the use, including times, specific fees, and other additional terms or limitations, constitutes a “Booking Agreement” that incorporates the terms and conditions of this Agreement and referenced policies. A Booking does not provide you a lease but only allows you limited access to use the Space or other service only as permitted in the Agreement and, as applicable, the Booking Agreement.
This Agreement is organised into 5 sections:
- Section 1: General Terms includes general terms describing your Account including creating an account, accepting or making payments, and describing how we communicate with you.
- Section 2: Platform and Service describes how you may and may not use the Platform and Service, and also describes how we use any data.
- Section 3: Tutti Services establishes the obligations of Spaces, including how to List a Space and what is expected of any Space Listed through the Service; and the obligations of Artists, including Booking a Space, expected behaviour, responsibility for payment of Fees, and Booking other services.
- Section 4: Termination, Disputes, and Binding Arbitration describes termination or suspension of this Agreement or your Account, and the process of resolving any disputes. This section contains waivers of both class actions and jury trials, and an agreement to submit all claims and disputes to binding arbitration. Please read this section carefully before accepting this Agreement –you may not use the Platform or Services if you do not agree to this section.
If you have questions about this Agreement, please contact us at email@example.com . Your use of the Platform or Services constitutes your ongoing acceptance of this Agreement, as amended.
Section 1: General Terms
Tutti provides you access to Services through the Platform. You may access the Platform through our website or apps. You may use the Service to List Spaces, Book Spaces as an Artist, communicate with other users, and access your Account.
You may also be permitted to Book Venue services (“Venue services”) through third-party service providers or through the Space, which may require you to agree to additional terms or conditions. These Venue services may include Audio Engineering, Production, or other Services that can take place in the Spaces. This is however not the main marketplace Service provided by Tutti.
We are continuously improving the Platform or Service for all users and reserve the right to make changes at any time. Changes we make to the Platform or Service, including discontinuing certain features, affect all users and we try to minimise disruption to users. However, these changes may affect users differently.

Information You Share on our Platform
Your User ID is not displayed throughout the Platform (and so is not available to the public), although for our internal purposes and out of the public eye, it is connected to all of your Tutti activity. For Guest Users, people you allow to use your Tutti Account on the Platform, can see your Host and Music Space and/or Music Instrument and/or Music Equipment selections and usage as well as other related information. Once you select a Music Space and start interacting with a potential Host, the Host can see some of your identifying information. For Hosts, people you allow to follow you on the Platform, can see your Music Space(s) and/or Music Instrument(s) and/or Music Equipment, the price for their use, and some of your identifying information. Notices sent about suspicious activity and policy violations on our Platform refers to User IDs and specific items. So, if you associate your name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your Tutti activities.
If you access our Platform from a shared computer, a computer in an Internet café or another person’s mobile phone, certain information about you, such as your User ID, activity, or reminders from Tutti, may also be visible to other individuals who use the computer or mobile phone after you.
Our Texting Service
Our Platform will have or currently has a robust texting service as part of its Services (the “Texting Service”). Through the Texting Service, Guest Users and Hosts can connect and communicate freely. We do not monitor the text messages of Guest Users and Hosts. However, in the unlikely event that we become privy to any leaked messages of Guest Users and/or Hosts, we shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from such leaked messages, whether it was caused by a failure of Tutti’s systems, an act of Tutti’s employees or an act of cyber hacking.
Using Information from Us
We enable you to share personal information using the Platform and our Services. We encourage you to disclose your privacy practices and respect the privacy of other Users. To help protect your privacy, we allow only limited access to other Users' contact and usage information to facilitate connection, interaction and flow of relevant or common information. When Users are involved in connecting with each other, they may have access to each other's name, User ID, email address and other contact information. In all cases, you must give other Users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them.
You agree to use User information only for:
- User connection-related purposes that are not unsolicited commercial messages;
- using Services offered through Tutti; or
- other purposes that a User expressly chooses.
We use “cookies” (small data files placed within your computing device) on certain of our pages to help analyse our Platform page flow; customise our Services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. Cookies track your movement on our Platform, including what you view, your transactions and what you purchase. They essentially serve to improve and personalise your experience on our Platform.
A few important things you should know about our use of these technologies are:
- most cookies are "session cookies," meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session;
- you are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of our Platform or Services;
- you may encounter cookies from third parties, known as service providers, that we have allowed on our Platform that assist us with various aspects of our Platform operations and services; and
- you also may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of our Platform that we do not control and have not authorised. (For example, if you view a Platform page created by another User, there may be a cookie placed by that page).
We may use "clear GIFs" (also known as "web beacons" or "pixel tags") or similar technologies, in the Platform and/or in our communications with you, to enable us to evaluate Platform usage information about visitors to our Platform, target campaigns, upgrade visitor information, and know whether you have visited a Platform page or received a message. A clear GIF is typically a one-pixel transparent image (although it can be a visible image as well), located on a Platform page or in an email or other type of message, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet thus enabling the verification of an individual's viewing or receipt of a Platform page or message. A clear GIF may enable us to relate your viewing or receipt of a Platform page or message to other information about you, including your personal information.
IP Address and Clickstream Data
Our server automatically collects data about your server's Internet address when you visit us. This information, known as an Internet Protocol address, or IP Address, is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you're on the Internet. When you request pages from our Platform, our servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Your IP Address is used to help identify you and to gather demographic information about our Users as a whole. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the pages you visit on our Platform; the website or mobile application you visit after our Platform; the ads you see and/or click on; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this Platform or a referral site; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. We use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Platform, and to customise your User experience. Such information may also be used to gather demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. We may link this information with your personal information.
Any or all of these activities with regard to Platform usage information may be performed on our behalf by our services providers, including, for example, our analytics vendor(s) and our email management partner(s).
No Spam, Spyware or Spoofing
We and our Users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your Tutti communication preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer. You are not licensed to add other Users to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their express consent. To report Tutti-related spam or spoof emails to Tutti, please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our Terms and Conditions. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks, and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools. If you send an email to an email address that is not registered in our community (via Refer-a-Friend or other tools), we do not permanently store that email or use that email address for any marketing purpose. We do not rent or sell these email addresses.
With identity theft a continuing problem, it has become increasingly common for unauthorised individuals to send email messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or on-line merchant, requesting that the consumer provide personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the email address from which the email appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the website requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorised individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as “phishing.”
We will never request your password or social security number via email. If you receive an email or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your Platform password or credit card information) via email or to a website that does not seem to be affiliated with our Platform, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us using the email email@example.com.
Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information
Your password is the key to your Tutti Account. Use unique numbers, letters, and special characters, and do not disclose your Tutti password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your Tutti Account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify Tutti and change your password.
You can see, review, and change most of your personal information by signing on to Tutti. Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, we will close your Tutti Account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your Tutti Account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms and Conditions, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
How we Protect and Store Personal Information
We take steps to ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate and up to date, and we provide you with the opportunity to update your information through your Tutti Account profile settings. We retain information as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations or for as long as is expressly agreed between you and us. In addition, we may retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce our Terms and Conditions and take other actions permitted by law.
Although we try our best to protect the security and integrity of your personal information against both unauthorised physical and electronic access, we cannot guarantee that information during transmission through the Internet or any computer network is entirely safe from unauthorised intrusion, access or manipulation. We will make your sensitive information available to our employees and agents on a need-to-know basis. Nonetheless, we will have no liability for disclosure of information to anyone due to errors or unauthorised acts of third parties during or after transmission. In any event, where we believe personal data has been compromised, we will notify you of this.
Please note that it is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and your computer. You agree to (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your password or Tutti Account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your Tutti Account at the end of each session, especially where you are accessing our Platform on a public computer. It is your sole responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your Tutti Account, and notify us when you desire to cancel your Tutti Account on our Platform. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision.
Right to a Copy
You have a legal right to request and obtain a copy of the information we hold about you. This includes information on how this will be used and to ensure this information is accurate. You may review and edit the personal information that is stored in your Tutti Account on our Platform. You may send us new or updated information at any time. Considering the foregoing, we will endeavour to respond to your request to access, update or delete your information as soon as practicable. Before we are able to provide you with any information, correct any inaccuracies or delete any information, however, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details to help us to respond to your request. In addition, you have the right to request access to the personal information that we hold about you at any time.
