NOTE: THESE TERMS CONTAIN A DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT AFFECTS USER’S RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS AND WITH RESPECT TO DISPUTES SUCH USERS MAY HAVE WITH EVENTUP. SUCH USERS MAY OPT OUT OF THE BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER AS PROVIDED BELOW.
Event Planners

Please read these terms of service carefully (“EP Terms”). These EP Terms, which incorporate our Privacy Policy and other policies posted on the Site (as defined herein), as amended from time to time, establish and govern the relationship between EVENTup, Inc. (“ EVENTup” or “ we” or “ our”) and the Event Planner end-users of the Site (“ Event Planner”). Our services, technology and Site are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Services”. The Services include an online platform through which venue owners (“Venue Owners”) may list venues and Event Planners, and other Event Planner end users (collectively, “End Users”), may learn about, reserve, book, and pay for the use of Venues. For the purposes of these EP Terms, all end users of the Services are either Event Planners or Venue Owners (subject to the VO Terms below). If an end user of the Services is not a Venue Owner, then such end user is an Event Planner subject to these EP Terms.

Agreement to these EP Terms

These EP Terms constitute a legal contract. As such, by accessing, completing registration and utilizing the Site, Event Planner hereby acknowledges and agrees to be bound by these EP Terms, as updated, from time to time, by EVENTup, govern such Event Planner’s use of www.EVENTup.com as well as all associated sites linked to www.EVENTup.com by EVENTup, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies (collectively, the “Site”) including without limitation EVENTup’s online listing platform for event locations (each a “ Venue” and collectively, “ Venues”) and related services available via the Site. If an Event Planner does not agree to be bound by all of these EP Terms, such Event Planner shall not access or utilize the Services. If an Event Planner agrees to these EP Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, such Event Planner represents and warrants that he or she has the authority to bind that company or other legal entity. Notwithstanding any such agency relationship, the Event Planner agrees to be bound by these EP Terms, personally, as well. At some point, different areas of the Services and the Event Planner’s access to or use of certain Services or Content (defined below) may have different terms and conditions or may require the Event Planner to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these EP Terms and the terms posted for a specific area of the Services or Site Content (defined below), the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to the Event Planner’s use of or access to that area of the Services or Site Content.

The Event Planner understands and agrees that the Services bring Venue Owners and Event Planner together; however, EVENTup is not a party to any agreements entered into between Venue Owners and Event Planners, nor is EVENTup a real estate broker or agent. As a result, EVENTup has no control over the conduct of Event Planners or Venue Owners. EVENTup has no control over the terms of any proposal generated by the Services, and the mere fact that Services allow Venue Owners to generate proposals with EVENTup’s name and trademark listed on them shall in no way be interpreted as EVENTup offering, condoning, guaranteeing or otherwise agreeing to be involved with the terms contained in any such proposal. EVENTup expressly disclaims all liability in this regard.

Changes to EP Terms

EVENTup, may, in its sole discretion, modify these EP Terms, at any time and without prior notice. If we do so we will let the Event Planner know either by posting the modified EP Terms on the Site or through other communications. It’s important that Event Planners review the modified EP Terms whenever we revise them because Event Planner’s continued use of the Services shall constitute such Event Planner’s agreement to be bound by the modified EP Terms. Event Planner’s continued use will be governed by the modified EP Terms, as well. Because our Services are evolving, if the revised EP Terms are not acceptable to an Event Planner, such Event Planner must stop using the Services. We may change or discontinue all or part of the Services, at any time, without notice to any Event Planner, at our sole discretion. We may also create limits related to use of the Service or parts of the Service, without notice or liability to any Event Planner.

Eligibility and Account Registration

If Event Planner would like to use our Services to view a Venue, such Event Planner must first register to create an account with EVENTup (“Account”). The Services are intended solely for businesses or persons who are 18 or older. Any access to or use of the Services by anyone under 18 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Services Event Planner represents and warrants that he, she, or it is 18 or older.

When creating an Account, Event Planner will be required to provide certain information and establish a username and a password. Event Planner agrees to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Event Planner can register directly through the Site or a social networking service we support (“SNS”). By using an SNS account, Event Planner is allowing EVENTup to access his or her SNS account information and Event Planner is agreeing to abide by the applicable terms and conditions of Event Planner’s SNS in his or her use of the Services via such SNS. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate Event Planner’s Account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false or misleading or to reclaim any username that Event Planner creates through the Services that violates these EP Terms. Event Planner is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Event Planner’s password and Account, and agree to notify us if Event Planner’s password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. Event Planner is responsible for activities that occur under Event Planner’s Account.

Bookings and Financial Terms

The booking of Venues shall be handled via the Express Book Service. Event Planner agrees to the Express Book Terms and Conditions and the same are incorporated herein by reference.

EVENT PLANNER EXPRESSLY RELEASES EVENTUP FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO THE BOOKING, CANCELLATION, CONDITION, OR SUITABILITY OF THE VENUE. EVENT PLANNER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT EVENTUP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR RESOLVING ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN VENUE OWNERS AND EVENT PLANNERS, WHETHER RELATED TO A BOOKING CANCELLATION, OR OTHERWISE, OR PROCESSING ANY CHANGES TO OR CANCELLATIONS OF BOOKINGS.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if Event Planner has given EVENTup notice of a Dispute under the section called “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver” (below), no change to the “Limitation of Liability” section after EVENTup received Event Planner’s notice will apply to the Dispute.

Indemnity

Event Planner agrees to indemnify and hold harmless EVENTup and its officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, and costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees (including costs of defense of litigation by third parties), arising out of, or in any way connected with (a) Event Planner’s access to or use of the Services or Site Content or violation of these EP Terms; (b) Event Planner Content; and (c) Event Planner’s interaction with any Venue Owner or user, as applicable, including, but not limited to, (i) any condition caused by events beyond EVENTup’s control that may cause damage to an Venue Owner’s Venue; and (ii) any injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a booking or use of a Venue, or an Venue Owner’s listing of a Venue via the Services.

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver.

Please read this carefully. It affects Event Planner’s rights.

Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to a customer’s satisfaction by contacting us at info@eventup.com or by mail at 600 West Chicago Avenue, Suite 260, Chicago, IL 60654. This Provision facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any disputes that may arise between Event Planner and EVENTup. Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which persons with a dispute waive their rights to file a lawsuit, to proceed in court and to a jury trial, and instead submit their disputes to a neutral third person (or arbitrator) for a binding decision. Event Planner has the right to opt-out of this Provision (as explained below), which means Event Planner would retain the right to litigate disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.

Please read this Provision carefully. It provides that all Disputes between Event Planner and EVENTup shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court. In the absence of this arbitration agreement, Event Planner may otherwise have a right or opportunity to bring claims in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate in or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including, but not limited to, class actions). Except as otherwise provided, entering into this agreement constitutes a waiver of Event Planner’s right to litigate claims and all opportunity to be heard by a judge or jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney’s fees).

For the purpose of this Provision, “EVENTup” means EVENTup and its parents, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between Event Planner and EVENTup regarding any aspect of Event Planner’s relationship with EVENTup, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to Event Planner (such as EVENTup’s licensors, suppliers, dealers or third-party vendors) whenever Event Planner also asserts claims against us in the same proceeding.

WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.

Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution

For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, Event Planner must first give EVENTup an opportunity to resolve the Dispute. Event Planner must commence this process by mailing written notification to EVENTup, 600 West Chicago Avenue, Suite 260, Chicago, IL 60654. That written notification must include (1) Event Planner’s name, (2) Event Planner’s address, (3) a written description of Event Planner’s Claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief Event Planner seeks. If EVENTup does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives Event Planner’s written notification, Event Planner may pursue the Dispute in arbitration. Event Planner may pursue the Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.

Exclusions from Arbitration/Right to Opt Out

Notwithstanding the above, Event Planner or EVENTup may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies, it may be initiated in small claims court; or (b) EVENT PLANNER OPTS-OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT EVENT PLANNER FIRST CONSENTS TO THESE EP TERMS (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). Event Planner may opt out of this Provision by mailing written notification to Event Planner, 600 West Chicago Avenue, Suite 260, Chicago, IL 60654. Event Planner’s written notification must include (1) Event Planner’s name, (2) Event Planner’s address, and (3) a clear statement that Event Planner does not wish to resolve disputes with EVENTup through arbitration. Event Planner decision to opt-out of this Arbitration Provision will have no adverse effect on Event Planner’s relationship with EVENTup. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and Event Planner must pursue the Dispute in arbitration or small claims court.

Arbitration Procedures

If this Provision applies and the Dispute is not resolved as provided above (Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution) either Event Planner or EVENTup may initiate arbitration proceedings. The American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), www.adr.org, or JAMS, www.jamsadr.com, will arbitrate all Disputes, and the arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Provision.

For arbitration before AAA, for Disputes of less than $75,000, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes will apply; for Disputes involving $75,000 or more, the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. In either instance, the AAA’s Optional Rules For Emergency Measures Of Protection shall apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures and the JAMS Recommended Arbitration Discovery Protocols For Domestic, Commercial Cases will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Provision governs in the event it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.

Because the Site and these Terms concern interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) governs the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statute of limitations or condition precedent to suit.

Arbitration Award – The arbitrator may award on an individual basis any relief that would be available pursuant to applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Such award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the FAA, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.

Location of Arbitration – Event Planner or EVENTup may initiate arbitration in either Cook County, Illinois or the federal judicial district that includes Event Planner’s billing address. In the event that Event Planner selects the federal judicial district that includes Event Planner’s billing address, EVENTup may transfer the arbitration to Cook County, Illinois in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs Event Planner incurs as a result of the transfer, as determined by the arbitrator.

Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs – EVENTup will pay all arbitration filing fees and arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon Event Planner’s written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. Event Planner is responsible for all additional fees and costs that Event Planner incurs in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses. Fees and costs may be awarded as provided pursuant to applicable law. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if Event Planner provides notice and negotiates in good faith with EVENTup as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that Event Planner is the prevailing party in the arbitration, Event Planner will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.

Class Action Waiver

Except as otherwise provided in this Provision, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless both Event Planner and EVENTup specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration. If Event Planner chooses to pursue the Dispute in court by opting out of the Arbitration Provision, as specified above, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to such Event Planner. Neither Event Planner, nor any other user of the Site can be a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.

Jury Waiver

Event Planner understands and agrees that by entering into this Agreement Event Planner and EVENTup are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Provision, Event Planner and EVENTup might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided below, those rights are waived. Other rights that Event Planner would have if Event Planner went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.

Severability

If any clause within this Provision (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Provision, and the remainder of this Provision will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.

Continuation

This Provision shall survive the termination of Event Planner’s service with EVENTup or its affiliates. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if EVENTup makes any change to this Provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), Event Planner may reject any such change and require EVENTup to adhere to the language in this Provision if a dispute between the parties arises.

If Venue Owner does not agree to be bound by all of these VO Terms, Venue Owner shall not access or utilize the services provided by the Site. If Venue Owner agrees to these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, Venue Owner represents and warrants that Venue Owner has the authority to bind that company or other legal entity. Notwithstanding any such agency relationship, Venue Owner agrees to be bound by these VO Terms, personally, as well. At some point, different areas of the Services and Venue Owner’s access to or use of certain Services or Content (defined below) may have different terms and conditions or may require Venue Owner to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these VO Terms and the terms posted for a specific area of the Services or Site Content (defined below), the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to Venue Owner’s use of or access to that area of the Services or Site Content.

Venue Owner understands and agrees that the Services bring Venue Owners and Event Planners together; however, EVENTup is not a party to any agreements entered into between Venue Owners and Event Planners, nor is EVENTup a real estate broker or agent. As a result, EVENTup has no control over the conduct of Event Planners or Venue Owners. EVENTup has no control over the terms of any proposal generated by the Services or the Site, and the mere fact that Services allow Venue Owners to generate proposals with EVENTup’s name and trademark listed on them shall in no way be interpreted as EVENTup offering, condoning, guaranteeing or otherwise agreeing to be involved with the terms contained in any such proposal. EVENTup expressly disclaims all liability in this regard.

Changes to VO Terms

EVENTup, may, in its sole discretion, modify these VO Terms, at any time and without prior notice. If we do so we will let Venue Owner know either by posting the modified VO Terms on the Site or through other communications.

Venue Owner’s continued use will be governed by the modified VO Terms, as well. Because our Services are evolving, if the revised Terms are not acceptable to Venue Owner, Venue Owner must stop using the Services. We may change or discontinue all or part of the Services, at any time, without notice to Venue Owner, at our sole discretion.

EXPRESS BOOK - TERMS & CONDITIONS

Payments

All payments executed through the EVENTup platform are processed by our third-party payment provider, Stripe. Bookings and payments must be done via the EVENTup platform, or the Event Planner and Venue Owner may talk back and forth via the platform. EVENTup will collect the full payment up front from the Event Planners. EVENTup shall have no responsibility, role, or liability relating to bookings made between the Venue Owner and Event Planner off the EVENTup platform.

To book a space, Event Planners must send a booking request to the Venue Owner through our platform, which places an authorization hold on their credit or debit card for 2 business days in order to ensure the funds are available. Booking requests expire after 2 business days, at which point the hold is automatically released. If we do not hear back from the Venue Owner with those 2 days the booking will automatically be cancelled.

Event Planners are charged in full as soon as the Venue Owner, which confirms the reservation, accepts the booking request. EVENTup will then send a check to the Venue Owner within 7 days after the completion of the reservation. If an Event Planner stays in the space beyond the hours they have reserved, the Venue Owner must let the EVENTup team know about that or any additional overages within 72 hours of the booking taking place for it to be included in the payout. Please email info@eventup.com or your account representative.

Costs.

EVENTup keeps a commission set forth between the Venue Owner and account representative on all bookings. Venue Owners are responsible for all taxes that are required to be included in their costs. EVENTup is not responsible for any tax related matters.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

We have developed the EVENTup cancellation policy so that it provides some flexibility for Event Planners while still providing security for a Venue Owner who has reserved their space for the Event Planner.



An Event Planner may cancel any booking within 48 hours of the booking's confirmation by the Venue Owner without further obligation as long as that cancellation is also made more than 7 days in advance of the booking start time. If a booking is made in this short-notice timeframe, or the cancellation is made more than 48 hours after it has been confirmed by the Venue Owner, then the following cancellation and refund rules apply to Event Planners. Likewise, the Venue Owner will be entitled to a portion of their payout depending on when the cancellation occurs. In all cancellations, EVENTup retains our customary fees. All of this is outlined in the table as follows:

Cancellation Date Event Planner Refund Venue Owner Payout
90+ calendar days prior to booking start time 75% 25%, minus EVENTup commission fee
89-30 calendar days prior to booking start time 50% 50%, minus EVENTup commission fee
29-8 calendar days prior to booking start time 25% 75%, minus EVENTup commission fee
7 calendar days or less prior to booking start time Non-refundable 100%, minus EVENTup commission fee


Refunds to Event Planners will only apply when a cancellation has been made. Event Planners should pay careful attention to the cancellation policy before completing a booking request so they are aware of the refunds eligible in the event of a cancellation. 



Refunds to Event Planners and payouts to Venue Owners will be processed within 7 days of the date that the original booking was to take place. If EVENTup is able to rebook a Venue Owner’s space on the calendar date of the original cancellation, the new booking will replace the cancelled one and the scheduled Venue Partner payout from the cancelled booking will be voided. 



The cancellation and refund policy has been created to remain fair to both parties and to protect the integrity of the EVENTup platform. If you have any questions, please email us at info@eventup.com.

What happens if an Event Planner stays past the end of their booking?

If Venue Owner allows an Event Planner to stay beyond the length of time allocated in the booking, Event Planner will be charged for overtime at time-and-a-half (150% of the hourly rate) and prorated by the half-hour.

For example, if the Event Planner stays beyond the scheduled end time for an additional 45 minutes, a charge for time-and-a-half would be collected for 60 minutes worth of time in the space. The price premium on overtime ensures that Venue Owners are able to pay for any needed resources or staff to stay beyond the time previously agreed upon in the booking confirmation.

At the conclusion of each booking, Venue Owner shall email us within 72 hours at info@eventup.com or Venue Owner’s EVENTup representative with any additional charges. We will confirm the charge with the Event Planner and send Venue Owner the money via check or alternatively Event Planner can put a charge through on our credit card for the remainder.

If Venue Owner agrees to let the Event Planner use the space for additional time after the booking is confirmed but before it takes place, Venue Owner can decide whether to charge it as overtime or at the space's normal rate.  If Venue Owner decides to not charge overtime in this case, let our Team know, and we can update the Event Planner's booking request with the extra hours.
