II. The Site
The “Site” means any website, including http://www.arts4all.org/ and CSMA’s registration services hosted at http://register.asapconnected.com/, and Internet service under the control of Community School of Music and Arts, whether partial or otherwise, in connection with providing information about CSMA’s activities, faculty, and classes and an online platform for registering for classes, workshops, lessons, and camps at CSMA.

Credit Card Pre-Authorization. When you provide a credit card number to pay for a class, workshop, or camp, we, through our third-party payment processor, may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to a purchase. This preauthorization will verify the credit card is valid and/or has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your required payment. These pre-authorizations will reduce your available balance by the authorization amount until it is released or reconciled with the actual charge. Please contact your card issuer if you have additional questions regarding when an authorization amount will be removed from your statement.
Third-Party Payment Processors. CSMA currently uses third-party payment processors for electronic commerce. Our third-party e-commerce payment processor accepts payments through methods detailed on the applicable payment screen, which may include various credit cards.
