2. DESCRIPTION OF CELLARPASS.
CELLARPASS provides a simple and quick means for registered users who are event organizers and planners ("Organizers" or "you") to collect payments with respect to the sale of tickets/registrations, merchandise and services for, and the solicitation of donations with respect to, events registered on the Site, including Service Fees (as defined below) ("Ticket Fees "), from users who want to attend such events ("Buyers"). Organizers may visit the Site, fill out a questionnaire about their event, including pricing, location, inventory, etc., and collect Ticket Fees online directly from Buyers. Payments are all transacted through the CELLARPASS payment processing gateway (the "Gateway"). This TOS applies to you and your use of the Services as an Organizer.
3. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.
3.1 The Services.
CellarPass hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to access and use the Services solely for the purposes of creating an event page with respect to, and promoting, managing, tracking, and collecting Ticket Fees for, an event that you have registered on the Site, in each case (i) in compliance with this TOS, and (ii) to the extent permitted under all applicable laws and regulations (foreign and domestic). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall not, and shall not permit anyone else to, directly or indirectly: (i) modify, reproduce or otherwise create derivatives of any part of the Services or Site Content (as defined below); (ii) 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 law); (iii) rent, lease, resell, distribute or use the Services for timesharing, service bureau, or commercial purposes (except for the limited commercial purpose of collecting Ticket Fees through the Site as an Organizer in accordance with this TOS); (iv) remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels on or in the Services or Site Content; or (v) engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services.
If you are allowed to download or use any Software in connection with the Services, CELLARPASS hereby grants you a personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-exclusive license to use the Software solely for your internal use in connection with the Services, and only in accordance with this TOS and the written instructions/directions (if any) provided by CELLARPASS in conjunction with the Software. For purposes of this TOS, "Software" shall mean any and all software that is available on or through the Site or otherwise provided by CELLARPASS, including without limitation CELLARPASSs mobile applications (such as At The Door™, Entry Manager and the CellarPass app). For clarity, the Software will be deemed a part of the "Services" hereunder.
The Software and the transmission of applicable data is subject to United States export controls. No Software may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported in violation of U.S. export laws. Downloading or using the Software is at your sole risk. You shall also be responsible for using the Software in a manner that complies with all federal, state and local laws and the rules and regulations of all credit card companies.
The Software and related documentation are "commercial computer software" and "commercial computer software documentation," respectively, as such terms are used in United States Federal Acquisition Regulations Section 12.212. Any use, duplication or disclosure of the Software or such documentation by or on behalf of the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in this TOS.
4. PAYMENT METHODS.
There is one type of payment processing Organizers use when using the Services: "Credit Card Processing" or "CCP", which requires the use of the Gateway for the collection of Ticket Fees. Monetary payments will be made to the Organizer directly by CELLARPASS (via CCP).
4.3 Credit Card Processing.
(a) Payment Process.
CELLARPASS will collect all Ticket Fees on behalf of the Organizer from Buyers and deduct all applicable Services Fees from the Ticket Fees collected by CELLARPASS, and then pass the remainder along to the Organizer within five (5) business days after the event end date for the event to which the Ticket Fees correspond (either by mailing a check or through an electronic funds transfer, depending on the option the Organizer has chosen through using the Site, to the address or account, respectively, that the Organizer accurately designates on the Site), provided that CELLARPASS reserves the right to withhold funds (i) at any time as CELLARPASS determines to be necessary for the processing and settlement of all refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks, customer complaints, allegations of fraud, and other discrepancies and (ii) as otherwise permitted pursuant to this TOS. CELLARPASS, in its sole discretion, may determine to advance a portion of Ticket Fees to Organizer prior to the period set forth above, on such terms and conditions as CELLARPASS may establish from time to time. CellarPass will not advance more than two-thirds of the total sales for an event or sales within an applicable date range whichever the case may be. Organizer agrees that all Ticket Fees for a given event are earned by Organizer only following conclusion of the applicable event and all Ticket Fees ultimately due will be net of all Service Fees, refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks and other deductions, whether due to customer complaints, allegations of fraud, discrepancies related to the applicable event or otherwise. No payments shall be made to an Organizer from CELLARPASS with respect to any event that is cancelled. If payments have already been made by CELLARPASS to an Organizer for a cancelled event, Organizer will immediately refund to CELLARPASS all such payments upon cancellation of such event. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in U.S. Dollars.
ORGANIZER AGREES THAT ANY PAYMENT BY CELLARPASS OF TICKET FEES PRIOR TO THE FIFTH (5TH) BUSINESS DAY AFTER THE END DATE OF THE APPLICABLE EVENT ARE MERELY ADVANCES OF AMOUNTS THAT MAY BECOME DUE TO ORGANIZER UNDER THIS TOS AND THAT CELLARPASS MAY DEMAND SUCH ADVANCES BACK (FROM TIME TO TIME IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION), AND ORGANIZER SHALL THEREUPON PROMPTLY (AND IN ANY CASE WITHIN FIVE (5) BUSINESS DAYS AFTER SUCH DEMAND) PAY BACK TO CELLARPASS SUCH ADVANCE OR ANY PORTION THEREOF DEMANDED BY CELLARPASS.
(i) Under the CCP option, it is the responsibility of the Organizer to communicate its refund policy to Buyers and to issue refunds to Buyers via the Site. An Organizer shall ensure that its refund policy is consistent with the terms of this TOS and the payment and refund mechanics of the Site. The Site permits an Organizer to issue refunds to Buyers, provided the refund is issued by Organizer before ninety-six (96) hours after the end date of an event and within six (6) months after the original transaction date for the underlying ticket purchase. Refunds issued following such period will not be processed through the Site, unless otherwise agreed to by CELLARPASS in its sole discretion. Subject to the foregoing, refunds issued by an Organizer will be processed within thirty (30) days after Organizer instructs the issuance of the refunds via the Site. All communications or disputes regarding refunds are between the Organizer and Buyer, and CELLARPASS will not be responsible or liable for, and Organizer hereby agrees to fully indemnify CELLARPASS and its affiliates for, refunds, errors in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds in connection with the use of the CCP option. (ii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that CELLARPASS shall have the right to force a refund of any or all tickets at any time for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if CELLARPASS receives complaints from a substantial number (as determined by CELLARPASS in its sole discretion) of Buyers with respect to the applicable event or another event held by Organizer, or CELLARPASS determines in its sole discretion that Organizer has engaged in any fraudulent activity or made any misrepresentations. Further, if one or more Buyer(s) request a refund, whether due to a cancelled event or for any other reason where CELLARPASS would reasonably expect to lose a chargeback, CELLARPASS may, in its sole discretion, issue such refund to such Buyer(s), and Organizer shall then owe the amount of such refund to CELLARPASS.
(c) Credit Card Chargebacks.
Under the CCP option, any credit card chargebacks initiated by a Buyer for any reason with respect to an event shall be charged back to the Organizer of such event. All communications and disputes regarding chargebacks are between the Organizer and Buyer, and CELLARPASS will not be responsible or liable in any way for, and Organizer hereby agrees to fully indemnify CELLARPASS and its affiliates for, chargebacks issued in the course of the use of the CCP option.
4.4 Non-Exclusive Remedies.
In the event that Organizer fails to pay to CELLARPASS any amount owed pursuant to this TOS when due, such amount shall bear interest calculated from the date due until paid in full at a rate equal to the lesser of (a) ten percent (10%) per annum, and (b) the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. In the event any amounts are owed by Organizer to CELLARPASS under this TOS or otherwise, CELLARPASS may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, (i) deduct such amounts from Organizer's outstanding balance, whether for that particular event or for any other event that Organizer lists through the Services; and/or (ii) send an invoice to Organizer for such amounts to the extent Organizer's outstanding balance is insufficient to cover these costs, in which case Organizer shall pay CELLARPASS such invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. If payment for any amounts due to CELLARPASS hereunder are not made by Organizer when due, CELLARPASS reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without limiting its other rights and remedies, to terminate Organizer's registration for the Services (including any and all accounts that Organizer may have) and to cancel all other events listed by Organizer.
Upon receipt of a credit card authorization from each individual ticket purchase, CELLARPASS generates a confirmation message and issues a unique confirmation number. You agree to unconditionally accept, honor, and fulfill all ticketing commitments that have been confirmed by CELLARPASS through the Services, and it is your responsibility to verify the Buyer's membership status, confirmation number and/or any event restrictions prior to the subject event.
(c) Taxes; Withholding.
(i) You are solely responsible for determining which, if any, sales, use, amusement, value added, consumption, excise and other taxes, duties, levies and charges (collectively, "Taxes") apply to your use of the Services and for collecting, remitting and reporting the correct amounts of all such Taxes to the applicable governmental authorities, even if CELLARPASS provides you with tools that assist you in doing so. CELLARPASS does not represent or warrant that any tax tools will meet all tax requirements that may be applicable to you. CELLARPASS cannot give you legal or tax advice, so please be sure to check with your own tax advisor about any applicable Taxes. In the event that a governmental authority requires CELLARPASS to pay any Taxes attributable to your use of the Services, you agree to indemnify and reimburse CELLARPASS for such Taxes and all costs and expenses related thereto.
(ii) All Service Fees charged by CellarPass do not include any Taxes except to the extent that a Tax is expressly set forth in the applicable invoice or billing statement, and you agree to pay any Taxes that are imposed and payable on such Service Fees (other than those calculated based on CELLARPASS'S net income) to CellarPass.
(iii) In addition, due to new IRS regulations, if CELLARPASS processes transactions and issues you payouts (A) for more than $20,000 in gross sales and (B) for more than 200 order transactions, in each case during a given calendar year and in the aggregate across all of your accounts, CELLARPASS is required to report to the IRS the gross amount of transactions for which you have been paid in that calendar year and in each month of that calendar year, as well as, your name, your address, and your Tax Identification Number ("Your Tax Information"). Starting in 2013, as part of these new IRS regulations, CELLARPASS is required to either (I) collect Your Tax Information or (II) establish that you are a foreign person not subject to US taxes, before your accounts pass the 200 order transaction threshold in the aggregate. Once your accounts cross the 200 order transaction threshold, you agree that you will not receive any further payments from CELLARPASS until either (I) or (II) above are satisfied.
(iv) CELLARPASS reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder if CELLARPASS suspects or determines that such amounts have been generated in (A) a fraudulent manner, (B) violation of this TOS, or (C) violation of any applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic), or if CELLARPASS is required to do so by applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic). Such withholding may be temporary or permanent (as determined by CELLARPASS).
5. YOUR REGISTRATION OBLIGATIONS.
6. ACCOUNT, PASSWORD AND SECURITY.
As part of the Site registration process, you will create a password and account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including, without limitation, all actions by sub-users registered under your account. You agree to (a) immediately notify CELLARPASS of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. CELLARPASS cannot and will not be liable for any loss, damage or other liability arising from your failure to comply with this Section or from any unauthorized access to or use of your account. In the event of any dispute between two or more parties as to account ownership, you agree that CELLARPASS shall be the sole arbiter of such dispute in its sole discretion and that CELLARPASS'S decision (which may include termination or suspension of any account subject to dispute) shall be final and binding on all parties.
