Laurie Morella Enterprises is bonded with the State of California:Bond info: CA5172462

My CA State Child Performers Permit info is: CPS-LR-1000453100


CONTRACT MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION: (We currently do not do memberships, but this is here in case we do them in the future.)  Memberships per the state of CA are those "membership" that give access to a website and it's content that non-members do not have; or give discounts to classes that non-members do not have.  In the system that I use called Kajabi where I house all my online-classes and products they refer to "members" as to those that have bought a product or online-class.  Therefore, Kajabi members purchase a product or course once and it is not a recurring type of membership fee which is of concern in the text below. 

If you are buying a contract over the internet or in the office with us the following applies.  If you purchase and pay online or in the office you are going into contract with us and your contract date will be the date of your purchase.

When buying products in the office or in person it has been assumed you have read these policies online and abide by them.

California Law does not allow automatic renewal of memberships. You must renew any memberships by coming into the office or renewing online.  (Again we do not have the memberships mentioned via the Law of California, but this is stated here in case we do decide to do those types of memberships in the future..return to this policy for any updates; and we will send out an email blast to all clients if we do decide to offer memberships of this sort in the future to give them the option to opt-in and become a member.)

For our membership levels you will be notified with a "Membership Renewal Initiated Email" at that time you will need to log on to continue or cancel your membership.  Our membership prices are based on the maintenance of our website only, which includes the webmaster, hardware and software tools needed to run the websites for LaurieMorella.com and ActorTrainingInLA. (again we do not have memberships at this time). The yearly membership fee makes you a member of Laurie Morella Enterprises and Actor Training In LA for one year. By giving us your credit card or paying for your membership or any workshops, classes, online courses etc you agree to follow our terms of services, which are listed below, and adhere to our policies as stated on our website. Ignorance of these policies is not a valid reason for you to be released of responsibility from them.

By giving us your credit card or paying for any courses, workshops, events etc, you agree to follow our terms of services, which are listed below, and adhere to our policies as stated on our website. Ignorance of these policies is not a valid reason for you to be released of responsibility from them.

You acknowledge that workshops are NOT auditions, and that any scene you bring in to perform is from a piece that has already aired or been publicly released, and in no way a means of auditioning or attempting to procure employment. You also acknowledge that you release Laurie Morella Enterprises, Laurie Morella, and Actor Training In LA of all liability if you have chosen to mislead our staff, or ignore our rules regarding scene selection and any other policies we have set in place. You take full responsibility for your choices and actions.
