REGISTRATION AND PASSWORDS
ACCURACY OF CONTENT AND PRICING INFORMATION
Because prices, product descriptions and availability can change quickly, TotalSheetMusic does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information provided on the Website. Also, TotalSheetMusic may make changes to the information contained on the Website, including to the products and prices described, at any time, without prior notice to you (including after you have submitted your order).

Items in your shopping cart or “basket” will reflect the most recent price displayed on the item's product detail page. Prices are frequently updated to adjust for different sales, limited pricing, and other discounting. Therefore, prices on the product detail page and in your cart may change after such updates to reflect the current prices. Placing items in your cart does not reserve the current prices shown at that time, and prices are reserved only by placing an order. From time to time, despite our efforts, certain of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. Please note that such errors or inaccuracies may be related to product descriptions, territorial currencies, pricing and availability.
Some products may be limited to stock on hand and are offered on a first come, first served basis.
You will indemnify, release and hold harmless us, our parent, subsidiaries and affiliates and all agents and employees thereof and any party ac ting on our behalf, from and against any and all claims, actions, liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (collectively, “Claims”) arising out of (i) your use of the Website or any product you may receive or purchase from the Website; (ii) any breach of these Terms by you; or (iii) any violation of any laws, regulations or the rights of any third party by you in connection with your use of the Website.

GENERAL AND MISCELLANEOUS
If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or void for any reason, the remaining provisions hereof shall be unaffected and remain in full force and effect. These Terms shall for all purposes be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California as those laws are applied to contracts entered into and to be performed entirely in California, without regard to conflicts of law provisions. Any suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be commenced exclusively in state or federal court in Los Angeles County, California, and you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST US. Any provision that by its nature should continue to be in effect in order to give meaning to such provision shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of these Terms and shall remain valid and binding. The headings contained in these Terms are for reference purposes only and shall not affect the meaning or interpretation of these Terms. The failure by us to enforce at any time any of the provisions of these Terms, or the failure of us to require at any time performance by you of any of the provisions hereof, shall in no way be construed as a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the right of us to enforce such provision thereafter.
