7. Eligibility and application processing
All members are reminded that they are representatives of the Lauri's List community, and are expected to choose jobs carefully, applying only for those for which they feel truly qualified.
Lauri’s List is a service company aimed at helping bona fide professionals in our online and real-world community, so every effort will be made to be fair, reasonable and consistent in processing membership applications and other requests for access. However, applicants may be approved for or denied access to the Service at the sole discretion of authorized Lauri’s List representatives, and reasons for any decision may or may not be disclosed to the applicant. Denied applicants may reapply after one year, and are generally welcome to use the site’s public resources until their eligibility improves.
Publicly accessible content: Not all areas of the Site and Service require access approval. “Public” areas of the Service are those areas of the Lauri’s List network of properties that are intended by Lauri’s List to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Service would include the Open Calls forum and Coaching pages, and other portions of the Lauri’s List website that are open to both members and visitors.
Various public email newsletters are also published by site editors, and are open to all, free of charge. Newsletter subscriptions are managed through a third-party service, and subscriptions may be suspended or canceled at any time, with or without cause, by administrators, by the service, or by the user. Additional newsletters may be introduced or discontinued as needs change.
8. Veracity of information
In consideration of your use of this service, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself on our registration forms and applications; maintain and update your data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if Lauri’s List has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of our service.
9. Member accounts, passwords and security
Certain elements of your account, e.g. your user ID, will not be editable by the user. If you have questions about this, wish to request a change or wish to have your account deleted, please contact us.

An exception to this policy may exist in the case of the words “please forward”, as included by a submitting user or administrator, in a specific listing.

Public newsletters and other generally available published content may be forwarded to others or shared via social media.

13. Modifications to Service
You and Lauri’s List agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of Los Angeles, California.
The failure of Lauri’s List to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the TOS shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

16. Disclaimer of Warranties
You expressly understand and agree that your use of the site is at your sole risk, and it is your responsibility to carefully and vigilantly screen and evaluate jobs, candidates and/or advertisers and their products, as applicable. We are unable to verify or provide any assurance relating to the nature of duration of any work or appointment that you may be offered as a result of using the Service, or to the ultimate level of qualification, professionalism and/or readiness of our members for any position. Membership in the group is exclusive, but does not constitute endorsement or guarantee by the List's owner that any member responding listed here or responding to a posted opportunity will be qualified or appropriate for any particular job. Just as job posters may not assume respondents are endorsed by this list, this is not an endorsement of any production or organization, and singers should always adopt a "buyer beware" attitude toward all contractors and advertisers. It remains each user's sole responsibility to ensure that any work, appointment, candidate or product is acceptable to them.
