  1. TOROTIX’S ROLE

4.1  Listing Service And Limited Agent

Torotix is not the organizer or owner of the events listed for sale or registration on the Services. Torotix provides the Services, which allow Organizers to list and promote their events, but all sales are made by the respective Organizer listed on the applicable event page. In the event that an Organizer has elected to use Torotix’s Payment Processing Service, Torotix also acts as the Organizer’s limited agent solely for the purpose of using its third-party payment providers to collect 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.

4.2   Payment Processing Methods

As an Organizer, you may select your preferred payment processing method for your event, provided, that once you sell the first ticket to an event you may not change the payment processing method for that event. As an Attendee, you will be using whatever payment processing method the Organizer of the applicable event has selected. If the Organizer has selected a payment processing method that uses a third party to process the payment, then neither Torotix or any of its third-party payment processing partners processes the transaction but may transmit your payment details to the Organizer’s designated payment provider. If the Organizer has elected to use Torotix’s Payment Processing Service, Torotix will use third party payment processing partners to process the transaction as Organizer’s limited payment agent.

4.3  Fees

Creating an account, listing an event and accessing the Services is free. We charge our fees only when you sell or buy paid tickets or registrations. All descriptions of standard fees on the Services represent the standard fees that Torotix charges to Organizers. These fees may vary based on individual agreements between Torotix and certain 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 Torotix to the applicable Organizer or the standard fees described on the Services to Organizers. In addition, certain fees are meant, on average, to defray certain costs incurred by Torotix, but may in some cases include an element of profit and in some cases, include an element of loss. Torotix 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.

4.4  Refunds

Because all transactions are between an Organizer and its respective Attendees, Torotix asks that all Attendees contact the applicable Organizer of their event with any refund requests. You can find help with getting a refund here. Organizers agree to post and maintain a refund policy on each event page and that refund policy will govern, provided that the refund policy must be consistent with Torotix’s Attendee Refund Policy Requirements available here. In the event that an Organizer has not responded to a refund request within two (2) business days or there is a dispute between an Organizer and an Attendee that cannot be resolved, either party may contact Torotix. Torotix may, in its discretion, attempt to mediate such dispute, however, Torotix will have no liability for (a) an Organizer’s failure to give refunds; (b) Torotix’s failure to mediate a dispute; or (c) Torotix’s decision if it does mediate the dispute.

  1. EMAIL

5.1  Email Tools

Torotix may make available to you features and tools that allow you to contact other users of the Services or third parties via email (the “Email Tools”). In the event that you use these Email Tools, you represent, warrant and agree that:

  • you have all right and authority necessary to send emails to the addresses on your recipient list, including without limitation, that such addresses were gathered on an opt-in basis in any jurisdiction where that is required by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule or regulation, and your emailing of such addresses complies with the privacy policy under which the recipient emails were gathered and which was disclosed to recipients at the time of gathering;
  • your use of the Email Tools is in compliance with all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, including those relating to spam and email;
  • your use of the Email Tools will be solely to advertise, promote and/or manage a bona fide event that you have listed on the Services;
  • your use of the Email Tools and the content of your emails complies with Section 8.1 of these Terms of Use;
  • you will not use false or misleading headers or deceptive subject lines in emails sent using the Email Tools;
  • you will identify the email message as an advertisement or commercial in nature;
  • you will not hide, disable, remove, or attempt to hide, disable or remove the unsubscribe link that Torotix includes on every email; and
  • you will not email any person that you know or have reason to know has opted out of receiving emails from you.

5.2  Remedies

If you fail to abide by any of the foregoing, if your use of the Email Tools results in bounce rates, complaint rates or unsubscribe requests in excess of industry standards or if your emails are found to cause disruption to the Services, Torotix may, among other actions, limit or suspend your access to the Email Tools.

  1. ACCOUNT, PASSWORD AND SECURITY

6.1  Registration

As part of certain registration processes on the Services, you will create an account or change or add information about your account. You agree (a) to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself, or if you are using the Services on behalf of an entity, the entity, as prompted by each Service registration form (the “Registration Data”); and (b) to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. In the event of any dispute between two or more parties as to account ownership, you agree that Torotix shall be the sole arbiter of such dispute in its discretion and that ticket gateway’s decision (which may include termination or suspension of any account subject to dispute) shall be final and binding on all parties.

6.2  Security

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account details, 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 immediately notify Torotix of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security.

Such additional services shall be set forth in additional terms and conditions or other written agreements between you and an authorized officer of Torotix, and shall set forth the applicable fees and the other terms and conditions relating to such additional services.

  1. SERVICE MODIFICATIONS

Torotix isn’t a job shop, it isn’t a white label solution and it isn’t a walled garden built specifically for each Organizer. Torotix is one of the broadest and most full featured event ticketing and registration platforms in the world. We are constantly evolving our products and services to better meet the needs of our entire user base. Because of this, we do not guarantee any set of product features or functionality and reserve the right at any time to, and from time to time may, modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any part of the Services for any reason. Because you only pay fees to Torotix as you use the Services, there would be no refund of fees already due following any such change to the Services.

  1. LINKS

13.1  Third Party Websites

The Services may provide, or Users may provide, links to other Internet websites or resources. Because Torotix has no control over such websites and resources, you acknowledge and agree that Torotix is not responsible for the availability of such websites or resources, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any Content, advertising, products, services or other materials on or available from such websites or resources, or any damages or losses related thereto, even if such websites or resources are connected with Torotix partners or third party service providers.

13.2  Linked Accounts

As part of the Services you may be able to link an account you have with a third-party service, such as a social media website. By linking such third-party account, you agree that Torotix may access, make available to and store any Content that you have provided to and stored in such third-party account so that it is available on or through the Services. Such content may include personally identifiable information.

  1. PRIVACY, CUSTOMER INFORMATION

14.1  Privacy Policy

All information provided by Users or collected by Torotix in connection with the Services is governed by Torotix’s Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy is incorporated into the Terms of Service by reference. Torotix strongly recommends that you review the Privacy Policy.

14.2  Co-Ownership

Torotix follows a “co-ownership model” with respect to Attendee Information (as defined below). This means that all Attendee Information inputted by an Attendee on event pages posted by an Organizer on the Services will be shared with the applicable Organizer and may also be used by Torotix in accordance with our Privacy Policy, including marketing or promotion of other events or services that may be of interest to the applicable Attendee. Note that Payment Data (as defined below) will not be shared with Organizers. Each Attendee acknowledges and agrees to this sharing and understands and agrees that each Organizer is solely responsible for the use of Attendee Information that was provided to such Organizer through the Services and that Torotix is responsible only for its own use of Attendee Information. Each Organizer represents, warrants and agrees that (a) it will at all times comply with all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations with respect to Attendee Information; (b) it will at all times comply with any applicable policies posted on the Services with respect to Attendee Information; and (c) upon a request of a given Attendee or as permitted in Section 8.2 of these Terms of Use, Torotix is authorized at its discretion to delete or anonymize Attendee Information of a requesting Attendee from the Services at which time it will no longer be available to Organizer through the Services or will no longer be linked to an identifiable Attendee through the Services. However, Attendees should note that Attendee Information may still be available in the Organizer’s own databases if transmitted prior to Torotix receiving the underlying request. For purposes of this Section, “Attendee Information” means information about a given Attendee made available on or through the Services, including, without limitation, name, address, e-mail address, past event attendance, event interests, credit card type, last 4 credit card digits and phone numbers, but excluding Payment Data.

14.3  Payment Data

Torotix will not share with an Organizer any Payment Data. “Payment Data” means any full credit card number or other full payment account number and the related expiration date and security code entered by an Attendee on the Services in order to purchase a ticket or registration, make a donation or purchase merchandise related to events, so long as such information is entered in the fields under “Payment” on the order payment page. Note that if an Attendee enters such information in other areas of the Services or otherwise provides it to another User, it may not be encrypted and may be automatically shared with the applicable Organizer, so Attendees should enter such information only under “Payment” on the order payment page.

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

16.9  Choice of Law

16.10  Binding Arbitration

Only for users located in the United States:

Please read this section carefully as it affects your rights. any dispute or claim under these terms of service or with respect to the services will be settled by binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) and will take place on an individual basis only; class, consolidated or representative arbitrations and civil actions are not permitted once this section is effective.

Contact Us First

If you have a question or concern about the Services, please contact us first. Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern.

Agreement to Arbitrate

In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, we each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under these Terms of Service or with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Arbitration, which is often cheaper, faster and less formal than a lawsuit in court, uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief as a court. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section, including, without limitation, the scope, enforceability and arbitrability of these Terms of Service. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service. These Terms of Service evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 6.10 is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth in Section 6.9 above.

Scope of Agreement

This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service and/or your use of the Services.

Exceptions

Notwithstanding this Agreement to arbitrate, either party may (i) bring an action on an individual basis in small claims court (to the extent the applicable claim qualifies), (ii) bring issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Trade Commission and the California Division of Consumer Services, which agencies may be able to seek relief on a party’s behalf (the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services may be contacted in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, California 95834, or by telephone at (800) 952-5210), and (iii) bring suit in court to seek a preliminary injunction or other interim relief pending the outcome of arbitration. In addition, the portion of any dispute or complaint relating to our participation in the US-EU or US-Swiss Safe Harbor Frameworks is subject to the Dispute Resolution section of our Privacy Policy before being subject to this Section.

No Class Actions

you and Torotix agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, may not preside over any form of class, consolidated or representative proceeding and may only provide relief in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.

Notice of Dispute

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to Torotix must be addressed to the address in Section 6.7 above (“Notice Address”) and must be sent by certified mail. The Notice to you must be addressed to a mailing, home or payment address currently on record with Torotix and must be sent by certified mail. If Torotix has no records of such physical address, such notice may be delivered to your Torotix account email address. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Torotix and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Torotix may commence an arbitration proceeding.

Arbitration Proceedings

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules, or, if the actions giving rise to the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use), the Consumer Arbitration Rules (in each case, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Section 6.10, and will be administered by the AAA and settled by a single arbitrator. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of these Terms of Service. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Section 6.10. Unless Torotix and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location in the United States for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, AAA shall determine the location. If your claim is for ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds ten thousand dollars ($10,000), the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All decisions by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

Costs of Arbitration; Legal Fees

  1. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA will be governed by the AAA rules, provided that if you are initiating an arbitration against Torotix and the value of the relief sought is ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, then Torotix will advance all filing, administrative and arbitration costs and expenses imposed by AAA (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). If the circumstances in the preceding sentence apply, but the value of relief sought is more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) and you demonstrate to the arbitrator that such costs and expenses would be prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding, then Torotix will pay the amount of any such costs and expenses that the arbitrator determines are necessary to prevent the arbitration from being prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). In the event that the arbitrator determines that all of the claims you assert in arbitration are frivolous according to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11, you agree to reimburse Torotix for all such cost and expenses that Torotix paid and that you would have been obligated to pay under the AAA rules.
  2. Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party’s request, the arbitrator shall award such prevailing party the reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use) Torotix will not seek to recover its attorneys’ fees and expenses in an arbitration initiated by you. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of attorneys’ fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

Future Changes

Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Service to the contrary, you and Torotix agree that if Torotix makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) Torotix will provide you with notice of such change and you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision as unmodified by such rejected change.

Special Severability

In the event that the provisions of Section 6.10(e) above are found to be invalid or unenforceable for any dispute or claim, then, notwithstanding Section 6.11, the entirety of this Section 6.10 shall be null and void with respect to such dispute or claim and Section 6.12 shall apply in lieu of this Section 6.10.

Opt Out

We believe that on a whole this agreement to arbitrate will benefit our Users. However, if you are an existing registered User and you do not wish to accept this agreement to arbitrate with respect to some or all of your accounts registered prior to October 1, 2015 you may opt-out by sending us a written notice to the Notice Address which (i) states you do not agree to this agreement to arbitrate, (ii) includes your name and all email addresses associated with the accounts you wish to opt-out, and (iii) is signed by the individual who owns the account, or in the event the account is held by an entity, an authorized signer for such entity (the “Opt-Out Notice”). The Opt-Out Notice must be received by November 14, 2015 in order to be effective; otherwise this agreement to arbitrate will be effective as of October 1, 2015,. For new registered users and existing registered users who register new accounts following October 1, 2015, there is no option to opt-out and this provision will be effective as to such new accounts upon account creation. For unregistered Attendees and other Users, this provision will apply to all future activities on the Services after October 1, 2015. In the event that you opt-out of this agreement to arbitrate as set forth above, Section 6.12 shall apply.

16.11  Waiver; Invalid Provisions

The failure or delay of Torotix to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No oral waiver, amendment or modification shall be effective under any circumstance whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect.

16.12  Judicial Forum

In the event that the Agreement to Arbitrate above is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of your decision to opt-out of the Agreement to Arbitrate or for any other reason, then any dispute or claim not subject to arbitration shall be resolved exclusively by a federal court located in San Francisco County, California, and to the extent there is no subject matter jurisdiction in such federal court, then a state court in San Francisco County, California. Both you and Torotix agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts and agree that such forum is convenient.

Any Section titles in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

16.17  Waiver; Invalid Provisions

The failure or delay of Torotix to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No oral waiver, amendment or modification shall be effective under any circumstance whatsoever. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service shall remain in full force and effect.
