- Users must be 18 years of age or older to register, or visit or use the Services in any manner.

If a User is below 18 years of age, it is assumed that he/she is using/browsing the Platforms under the supervision of his/her parent or legal guardian and that such User’s parent or legal guardian has read and agrees to the terms of this Agreement, including terms of purchase of Products, on behalf of the minor User. Should The Dance Bible be made aware that a User is under the age of 18 and is using/browsing the Platforms without the supervision of his/her parent or legal guardian, The Dance Bible reserves the right to deactivate such User’s account without further notice.
The Agreement is governed by the provisions of Indian law, including, but not limited to:
- the Indian Contract Act, 1872;
- the Information Technology Act, 2000;
- the rules, regulations, guidelines and clarifications framed there under, including the Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Information) Rules, 2011 (“SPI Rules”) and;
- the Information Technology (Intermediaries Guidelines) Rules, 2011 (“IG Rules”).
- The contents of Services, information, text, graphics, images, logos, button icons, software code, interface, design and the collection, arrangement and assembly of the content on the Platforms or any of the other Services are the property of The Dance Bible, its parent company, group companies, subsidiaries, associates, affiliates, suppliers, vendors and sister companies, as the case may be (“The Dance Bible Content”), and are protected under copyright, trademark and other applicable laws. You shall not modify the The Dance Bible Content or reproduce, display, publicly perform, distribute, reverse engineer or otherwise use the The Dance Bible Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose or for personal gain.
- The Dance Bible authorises you to view and access the The Dance Bible Content solely for identifying Products, carrying out purchases of Products and processing returns and refunds, in accordance with Return and Refund Policy, if any. The Dance Bible, therefore, grants you a limited, revocable permission to access and use the Services. This permission does not include a permission for carrying out any resale of the Products or commercial use of the The Dance Bible Content, any collection and use of product listings, description, or prices, and, any derivative use of the Platforms or of The Dance Bible Content.
- As means to assist the Users in identifying the Products of their choice, The Dance Bible provides visual representations on the Platforms including graphics, illustrations, photographs, images, videos, charts, screenshots, infographics and other visual aids. While reasonable efforts are made to provide accurate visual representations, The Dance Bible disclaims any guarantee or warranty of exactness of such visual representation or description of the Product, with the actual Product ultimately delivered to Users. The appearance of the Product when delivered may vary for various reasons.
- Users may make purchases on the Platforms. For the purposes of identifying a User, The Dance Bible may, from time to time, collect certain personally identifiable information such as your first name and last name, email address, mobile phone number, postal address, other contact information, demographic profile, etc. Users may also register themselves on the Platforms. Registration on the Platforms is one-time and you are required to remember your username and password and keep the same confidential. In the event where you have misplaced your username and password details, you can retrieve and change the same using the “forgot username/password” option on the Platforms.
- The User shall assume all risks, liabilities, and consequences if his/her account has been accessed illegally or without authorization through means such as hacking and if through such unauthorized access, a purchase of Products has been made through the Services. It is specifically clarified that payments of monies towards any Products purchased through the Services by unauthorized or illegal use of the User’s account shall entirely be borne by the User.
- Display of Products for purchase on the Platforms is merely an invitation to offer. An order placed by a User for purchase of a Product constitutes an offer. All orders placed by Users on the Platforms are subject to the availability of such Product, The Dance Bible’s acceptance of the User’s offer and the User’s continued adherence to the terms of the Agreement.
- You agree to maintain and promptly update all data provided by you and to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, incomplete, or if The Dance Bible has reasonable grounds to suspect that the information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current, incomplete, or not in accordance with the terms of the Agreement, The Dance Bible reserves the right to indefinitely suspend, terminate or block your access to the Platforms, and refuse to provide you with access to the Platforms in future.
- You understand that on your registration as a User or on your purchase of Products on the Platforms, you may receive text messages and/or emails from The Dance Bible on your registered mobile number and/or email address.

It is specifically clarified that a text message and/or an email confirming the receipt of your order is not an acceptance from The Dance Bible that the Product will be delivered. The Dance Bible’s acceptance to your offer to purchase shall occur and conclude only when the Products have been dispatched by The Dance Bible and a text message and/or email confirming such dispatch has been sent to you. The Dance Bible, at all times, reserves the right to limit the quantity of items in, or cancel an order prior to dispatch.
- Any communication from The Dance Bible shall be sent only to your registered mobile number and/or email address or such other contact number or email address that you may designate, for any particular transaction. You shall be solely responsible to update your registered mobile number and/or email address on the Platforms in the event there is a change. Further, The Dance Bible may also send you notifications and reminders with respect to scheduled deliveries of the purchased Products. While The Dance Bible shall make every endeavour to share prompt reminders and notifications relating to the delivery of purchased Products with you, The Dance Bible shall not be held liable for any failure to send such notifications or reminders to you.
- The Dance Bible may, at any time and without having to service any prior notice to you: (i) upgrade, update, change, modify, or improve the Services or a part of the Services in a manner it may deem fit, and (ii) change the contents of the Agreement in substance, or as to procedure or otherwise; in each case which will be applicable to all Users. You hereby agree that this is in the fairness of things given the nature of the business and its operations and you will abide by them. As such, you must keep yourself updated at all times and review the terms of the Agreement from time to time. Such changes shall be made applicable when they are posted. The Dance Bible may also alter or remove any content from the Platforms without notice.
