  • Your violation or breach of these Terms of Use;
  • your misuse or abuse of the Services; or

6. USE OF THE SERVICES

6.1 The Services

Attendease hereby grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited right to access and use the Services solely for the purposes of:

  • Browsing the Services and searching for, viewing, registering for or purchasing tickets or making donations to an event that is registered on the Services; and/or
  • If you are an Organizer, creating event registration, speaker profile, organizer profile, fundraising and other webpages with respect to, and promoting, managing, tracking, and collecting sales proceeds for, an event, in each case
    • in compliance with these Terms of Use and the Terms of Use; and
    • to the extent permitted under all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall not, and shall not permit anyone else to, directly or indirectly
      • copy, modify, reproduce, translate, localize, port or otherwise create derivatives of any part of the Services;
      • reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or structure, sequence and organization of all or any part of the Services (except that this restriction shall not apply to the limited extent restrictions on reverse engineering are prohibited by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule or regulation);

      • remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels on or in the Services; or
      • engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services. Any rights not expressly granted in this paragraph are reserved.

7. ATTENDEASE’S ROLE

7.1 Listing Service and Limited Agent

Attendease is not the organizer or owner of the events listed for sale or registration on the Services. Attendease provides the Services, which allow Organizers to list and promote their events, but all Transactions are made by the respective Organizer listed on the applicable event page. In the event that an Organizer has elected Attendease to facilitate the Transaction, Attendease also acts as the Organizer’s limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Attendees on the Services with respect to an event and passing such payments through to the applicable Organizer. It is the Organizer’s sole obligation to ensure that any event page posting on the Services and the nature and conduct of the underlying event meet all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that the goods and services described in any event page posting are actually delivered in a satisfactory manner.

7.2 Fees

All fees may vary based on individual Service Agreements between Attendease and the Organizers. Organizers ultimately choose if these fees will be passed along to Attendees and shown as “Fees” on the applicable event page or absorbed into the ticket or registration price and paid by the Organizer out of ticket and registration gross proceeds. The fees charged to Attendees may include certain other charges, including without limitation, facility fees, royalties, taxes, processing fees and fulfillment fees. Therefore, the fees paid by Attendees for an event are not necessarily the same as those charged by Attendease to the applicable Organizer or any standard fees described on the Services to Organizers. Attendease does not control (and thus cannot disclose) fees levied by your bank and/or credit card company, including fees for purchasing tickets and registrations in foreign currencies or from foreign persons. Be sure to check with your bank or credit card company prior to engaging in a Transaction to understand all applicable fees, credit card surcharges and currency conversion rates.

7.3 Refunds

Because all Transactions are between an Organizer and its respective Attendees, Attendease asks that all Attendees contact the applicable Organizer of their event with any refund requests. Organizers agree to post and maintain a refund policy on each event page and that refund policy will govern. In the event that there is a dispute between an Organizer and an Attendee that cannot be resolved, either party may contact Attendease. Attendease may, in its discretion, attempt to mediate such dispute, however, Attendease will have no liability for (a) an Organizer’s failure to give refunds; (b) Attendease’s failure to mediate a dispute; or (c) Attendease’s decision if it does mediate the dispute.

8. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

Attendease provides a marketplace in which Attendees and Organizers can transact.

In addition, you waive any applicable law or statute, which says, in substance:

“A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE RELEASED PARTY.”

These Terms cannot be modified except as described herein. Anything in this Website inconsistent with these Terms is superseded by these Terms. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such Term or any other Term.
