Terms of Service (TOS)
End User License Agreement (EULA)
1. TERMS OF SERVICE
Drama Notebook provides subscription access to drama curriculum materials and downloadable products for use by Individual Subscribers and Educational Organizations subject to the terms of service set out in this agreement ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. In addition, when using particular Drama Notebook materials/services, you are subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such materials/services, which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.
2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
(a) Single user only per subscription.
Individual teacher memberships to Drama Notebook are intended for use by one (1) party only. Monthly subscribers may download five to ten items per month depending on their subscription and may access the site from two computers. Members who subscribe to the three-month membership may download up to 25 titles at any time over a three-month period. Yearly subscribers are entitled to 200 downloads for a full calendar year. Lessons featured in the Drama Notebook store are not included in a Drama Notebook monthly, three-month or yearly membership. Members are not permitted to share their password under any circumstances.
(b) Copyright Guidelines/Licenses and Fees Overview
. Drama Notebook is not like a traditional play publisher. Most scripts on Drama Notebook are one credit. A few full-length plays and plays with additional learning materials are between 3 and 10 credits and are noted in the descriptions. You may make as many copies as you need for your students/cast members at no additional charge. You just can’t share them with other teachers/group leaders or post them on a publicly viewable website. If you wish to make changes to a script, please contact the playwright.
Playwright’s contact information is on page 3 of every script. If there is no playwright email listed (scene collections, etc.) you may make the changes without a permission request.
No royalties are due when the script is used in an educational or casual setting and no admission is charged.
If admission is charged, or donations are taken at the performance(s), you must contact the playwright and inquire about potential royalties.
(d) Rules for Using our Plays.
We do have some rules for using our scripts.
1. Thank the playwrights.
If you perform one of our plays in front of an audience, either in-person or virtually, you must contact the playwright and let them know you are performing their play. If you are using one of our plays for classroom use, Reader’s Theatre, or in any other way, please take just one minute to write a quick note of appreciation to the playwright. The playwright’s contact information is on page 3 of every script.
2. Link to Drama Notebook.
Post a link to the Drama Notebook Script Library (https://www.dramanotebook.com/plays-for-kids/) anywhere on your classroom or theatre organization’s website. This is not to promote Drama Notebook. This sends a secret signal to Google that helps us stay at the top of Google searches so that teachers and parents can easily find this amazing resource. The link needs to be clickable.
This important step helps the creator of Drama Notebook save time and money on search engine optimization and helps keeps the price low for everyone. If you do not have a website, you can skip this step.
3. Share your photos.
Send us photos if you can, so that we may share on social media and with our teacher members. We will be adding photos of past productions to individual play listings to inspire you and other teachers/directors. We understand that many schools/organizations prohibit sharing photos.
(e) Group Licenses.
Group License Subscriptions apply to any organization wishing to license three (3) or more Subscribers to Drama Notebook. A separate Group License Agreement shall be executed between the Organization (subscribing entity) or Educational Institution (subscribing entity) and Drama Notebook. This will include, but is not limited to the number of Users per Organization/Institution and the License Fee(s) agreed upon by both parties.
CERTAIN SUBSCRIPTION OBLIGATIONS
You agree to:
(a) Provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by Drama Notebook’s subscription form ("Subscription Data"); and (b) promptly update the Subscription Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Drama Notebook has reasonable grounds to suspect this, Drama Notebook has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of Drama Notebook (or any portion thereof), including any transition rights.
4. CANCELLATION POLICY
Membership to Drama Notebook is offered on a recurring billing basis. Subscribers may cancel at any time by logging into their account, clicking “Payment History,” and “Cancel.” Members are responsible for canceling their subscriptions in a timely fashion to avoid unwanted charges. Members who forget to cancel are not eligible for refunds for that month. Subscribers experiencing problems with the cancellation process should contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
