To only browse the shows on Starastar, or to donate, you don't need to register
When you are an unknown artist, no one will pay much attention or money to your art. But to get all the recognition your hard work and artistic talent deserve, you need more visibility, more social encouragement and some financial support too!... Furthermore, if you simply want to use your talent for a good cause, to help someone else than you (who doesn't have to be an artist), you can also do that easily on Starastar...
Once you created and published your first show on Starastar, it may run indefinitely unless yourself decide to delete it.
Be aware though that the more Stars you are receiving, the higher your Show will rank in the public eye...
When your show hasn't receivend a donation for a while, you may see a warning message when you login to encourage you to Share again...
Naturally you can also decide to create a new Show at any time!
Nobody else but you will always own the intellectual property of your Show on Starastar. We respect and expect you to respect all the rights of copyright holders; thus it's also your responsibility to ensure that any content you publish on the platform is not violating any copyright of anybody else either (i.e. using in your video a song of another artist but without any permission). On another side, if you believe that your copyright rights are being violated anywhere on Starastar, please <%= link_to 'click here', terms_of_use_path %>.
You will never receive any bills and It will always be free to create as many shows as you want on Starastar. Only when you'll withdraw your donations' money, Starastar will automatically deduct a 9-10 % overall fee from each donation; this covers your donors' credit card, payment processing fees as well as the management and ongoing improvement of the Starastar platform. Note that your donors will never be charged any fees.
Although PayPal is known for effectively sending and receiving money between 2 PayPal account owners, when your donors want to pay with their credit card via PayPal, it can often be challenging to them and the probability of a failed transaction is unfortunately higher. Do not worry though, for our payment system Stripe is very simple to set up and to use while being as much secure as PayPal.
Starastar cannot give you legal advice. Money received from donation-based fundraising are likely to be considered non-taxable gifts, and a gift is generally defined for federal income taxes as an amount transferred 'out of detached and disinterested generosity' which is the case when receiving donations via Starastar. However, because everyone's tax situation is different, you may ask advice about your situation to a licensed tax advisor of your own jurisdiction.
