- Your Fees.
- As an event organizer, you will be obligated to pay Bizzabo all fees described in the applicable Order Form, which are collectively referred to as “Fees”. Payments are due within fifteen (15) days of the invoice date unless expressly specified otherwise in the applicable Order Form or invoice.
- The Fees shall be charged by the payment method selected in the applicable Order Form. The Fees are separate from, and additional to, any fees which may be charged by the payment processing provider that you have selected. You hereby represent and warrant that you are authorized and legally entitled to use the payment method and associated account selected by you for all Fees.
- You may be required by us to provide additional information (beyond the information required to register for the Services) about yourself, the entity you represent (if any) and the principals/beneficial owners of the entity you represent (if any) (collectively, "Additional Information"). As an example, the Additional Information may include current address, doing business as (DBA) names, description of products, website address, bank account or other payment account information, Tax Identification Numbers, date of birth, passport or driver’s license number, country of origin, copies of government identification documents and other personal information. This information may be used to verify your identity, the validity and/or legality of your transactions. You agree to: (a) provide this information in a timely, accurate and complete manner and (b) maintain and promptly update this information in a timely manner to ensure it remains accurate and complete at all times.
- You agree that we are permitted to share the information relating to your events and transactions on the Services, including the Additional Information, with the payment processing provider that you have selected, our payment processing partners, card based payments networks, such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express (the “Credit Cards”), and non-card based payment networks such as direct debit and other alternative forms of payment (the “Alternative Forms of Payment”), and with your bank, in each case to the extent your transactions or events involve such third parties.
- Event Registration Fees.
- As part of the creation of a paid event or at any time following such creation you may select a payment processing method for your event that is either provided by us (the “Bizzabo Payment Processor”) or by a third party provider (the “Non-Bizzabo Payment Processor”). For the avoidance of doubt, Bizzabo does not and will not provide banking, deposit taking, stored value, insurance or any other financial services to you other than serving as a limited payment collection agent as set forth below, provided that you chose to use Bizzabo Payment Processor.
- Payment Processing Fees. You agree to pay all service fees of either Non-Bizzabo Payment Processor or Bizzabo Payment Processor, as applicable, for each ticket, registration or other item sold or donation solicited via the Service (the "Service Fee" and "Bizzabo Payment Processing Fee"). The Service Fee and the Bizzabo Payment Processing Fee vary by country and processing currency, and are subject to change from time to time with respect to transactions that occur following the change.
- Bizzabo Payment Processing.
- If you have requested Bizzabo Payment Processor, then upon receipt of Additional Information, we will determine, in our discretion, whether you are qualified to use Bizzabo Payment Processor. If you are not qualified to use Bizzabo Payment Processor, but you are otherwise qualified to use the Services, we will notify you and you may switch to Non-Bizzabo Payment Processor. For risk management and security reasons and to meet the requirements imposed by our payment processing partners, we may from time to time in our discretion impose a transaction limit on the amount of any given transaction that you process through Bizzabo Payment Processor and you authorize us to reject any transaction over that limit.
- When using Bizzabo Payment Processor, payment processing occurs directly through our payment processing partners. We cause our payment processing partners to pass you along the Event Registration Fees on a biweekly basis during each calendar month (each the “Biweekly Period”), each time in the amount equal to 50% of the Event Registration Fees that were actually collected during the relevant Biweekly Period (the “50% Payout”). Such 50% Payouts shall be available to you within fourteen (14) business days following the last day of the Biweekly Period, during which such Event Registration Fees were collected. Within five (5) business days after the successful completion of your certain event, we will cause our payment processing partners to pass you along all the remaining Event Registration Fees related to such event that have been collected by our payment processing partners, but have not yet been paid out to you under the provisions of this Section 9.4.2. All of the aforementioned payouts are subject to (i) deduction of all applicable fees then due, including, but not limited to transaction fees charged by our processing partners; and (ii) our right of setoff against any debts or other amounts owed to us by you under this Agreement, applicable Order Form or other applicable agreement for Service. Such payouts will be made only to the payout information designated by you on the admin dashboard. Payouts are made by Automated Clearing House (ACH). In addition, Bizzabo Payment Processor may allow you to accept payments from Credit Cards, and the Alternative Forms of Payment. You agree that, regardless of the delivery option used by us to make a payout to you, you will not request or use any information related to that payout method (including, but not limited to, any check or check information) for any purpose that you know or should know to be fraudulent, erroneous or otherwise in violation of this Agreement.
- You understand and agree that you are responsible for maintaining the security of and control over any check issued to you under this Agreement. If a check we issue to you is lost, stolen, or otherwise fraudulently or erroneously obtained or presented, you agree that we are not liable or responsible for any and all losses arising from the loss, theft, or misuse of the check. You agree that we are entitled to pay any check issued to you under this Agreement, regardless of who presents the check for payment and regardless of whether the check was lost, stolen, or otherwise fraudulently or erroneously obtained or presented.
Without limiting any other provision in this Agreement, you agree to reimburse us for all claims, losses, costs, and damages we incur regarding any check issued to you, and you agree to reimburse us for all claims, losses, costs, and damages we incur because the check is cashed or deposited more than once, resulting in duplicate payments.
For ACH transactions, if any bank account number you provide to us, including a bank account number you provide as part of your Additional Information, is inaccurate, you agree that we are still entitled to make payment to that account number, even if the bank account is not owned by you. You agree that we may rely solely on the bank account number you provide to us as the proper identification of your bank account, even if the bank account number identifies a different account from your account. You also agree to reimburse us for any losses or expenses we incur as a result of our reliance on any bank account number you provide to us.

By registering for the Service and accepting this Agreement, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are not located in, and you are not a national or resident of, any country to which the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, Australia or Canada has embargoed goods and/or services of the same type as the Service ("Restricted Countries"); (b) you are not a person or entity or under the control of or affiliated with a person or entity that (i) appears on the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control's Specially Designated Nationals List, Foreign Sanctions Evaders List or Palestinian Legislative Council List; (ii) appears on the U.S. Department of State's Terrorist Exclusion List; (iii) appears on the Bureau of Industry and Security's Denied Persons List; (iv) appears on the Consolidated List of Targets published by the U.K. HM Treasury; (v) appears on the Consolidated List published by the A.U.

- Remedies. If we discover that you are a Prohibited Merchant, that you have posted a Prohibited Event and/or that you have attempted to process or processed a Prohibited Transaction, we may take any or all of the following actions in our discretion in addition to any and all remedies that Bizzabo may have under the law or under this Agreement: (a) suspend or terminate your Account; (b) alter, edit, or remove any Prohibited Event or any portion thereof; (c) block, reverse or refund any or all of your transactions; (d) hold any and all funds associated with your account to the extent required by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule, regulation, judgment or order; and (e) refer you, your events and/or your transactions and information relating to the same (without further notice to you) to our payment processing partners, the Credit Cards, the Alternative Form of Payments and/or applicable law enforcement agencies for further action.
- Confirmation. Upon receipt of a Credit Card authorization or other payment verification from each individual ticket purchase, Bizzabo will generate a confirmation message on the website and issue a confirmation email. You agree to unconditionally accept, honor, and fulfill all ticketing commitments that have been confirmed by Bizzabo through the Service, and it is your responsibility to verify the Registrant’s status and/or any event restrictions prior to the subject event.
- 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 Service and to sales you make using the Service. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to, and that you will, collect and remit the correct amounts of all such Taxes to the applicable governmental authorities (the “Tax Authorities”). Bizzabo does not represent, warrant or guarantee that any invoicing or tax tools (the “Tax Tools”) to the extent available through our Service, you will meet all tax requirements that may be applicable to you or that such Tax Tools will result in your collection or remittance of all applicable Taxes, which Taxes may vary based on the nature of your event, the nature of your tax status (individual, entity, business, consumer, etc.), your location, the location of your End Users, credits and deductions for which you may qualify and other factors, and you hereby release Bizzabo from any and all liability with respect to your use of the Tax Tools. None of such Tax Tools should be considered legal or tax advice. In the event that a Tax Authority requires Bizzabo to pay any Taxes attributable to your use of the Service or to sales you make using the Service, you agree to promptly and fully reimburse Bizzabo for such Taxes upon demand and all costs, penalties, interest and expenses related thereto.
- Notwithstanding the preceding paragraph, Bizzabo may, in certain jurisdictions, be required to collect and remit Taxes on Bizzabo Service Fees and Bizzabo Payment Processing Fees (the “Bizzabo Fees”) to the Tax Authorities. In such jurisdictions, Bizzabo will collect from you Taxes on Bizzabo Fees, and you agree to pay such Taxes. Bizzabo may, at its sole election, invoice you for Taxes on Bizzabo Fees or withhold (from amounts it would otherwise pay to you) the amount of Taxes on Bizzabo Fees. With the exception of Taxes on Bizzabo Fees that we collect from you pursuant to this paragraph, you remain responsible for collecting and remitting the correct amount of any Taxes that apply to your use of the Service and to sales you make using the Service.
- If you are residing in the EU and have not provided us with your VAT Identification Number ("VAT ID"), we are required to collect Value Added Tax ("VAT") from you on the Bizzabo Service Fee for paid tickets or registrations sold through the Service in order to comply with sales tax regulations of the European Union (the "EU"). In such case, we will remit any VAT collected to the relevant tax authority. If you provide us with your VAT ID, we will not collect VAT on the Bizzabo Service Fee. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the VAT ID you provide to us (if any) is accurate, complete and properly formatted. Please be aware that falsification or misrepresentation of information to evade payment of VAT may result in fines and/or criminal prosecution. You agree to promptly and fully reimburse Bizzabo for all out-of-pocket costs and expenses arising out of your falsification or misrepresentation of a VAT ID.

Bizzabo is required to report to the IRS (a) the gross amount of transactions for which you have been paid in that calendar year and in each month of that calendar year; (b) your name; (c) your address; and (d) your Tax Identification Number ("Your Tax Information"). As part of these IRS regulations, we are required to either (a) collect Your Tax Information; or (b) establish that you are a foreign person not subject to US taxes, before your accounts pass the two hundred (200) order transaction threshold in the aggregate. Once your accounts cross the two hundred (200) order transaction threshold, you agree that you will not receive any further payments from Bizzabo until either (a) or (b) above are satisfied.
- Bizzabo reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder and dispose of them as required by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule, regulation, judgment or order, in each case as determined by Bizzabo, or to seek later payment from you of any amounts on taxes uncollected and unremitted, related to your events.
- Payment Currency. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in U.S. Dollars, or other foreign currencies accepted by Bizzabo. If you select a foreign currency option accepted by Bizzabo, Bizzabo will collect and disburse the funds in the foreign currency selected by you, subject to any exchange rates which may be applicable, as published by Bizzabo from time to time.
- Refunds & Cancellations for Registrants.
- Regardless of what payment method is selected, it is your responsibility to communicate your refund policy to Registrants and to issue refunds to Registrants via the payment method that you have selected.
- You shall ensure that your refund policy is consistent with this Agreement and the refund mechanics of your selected Payment Processor. The Registrant will receive the funds in accordance with the Payment Processor policies and practices. After you have collected your full payout, all refunds will have to be provided outside of Bizzabo.
- All communications or disputes regarding refunds are between you and the Registrant, and Bizzabo will not be responsible or liable for refunds, errors in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds.
- Without derogating from the foregoing, all refunds for Bizzabo Payment Processor transactions must be processed through us, unless we agreed otherwise. For Bizzabo Payment Processor transactions, you can issue refunds to the Registrants directly through the Services within certain windows permitted by our payment processing partners. You agree that no refunds will be made outside of Bizzabo platform (e.g. offline), and Bizzabo Payment Processor refund transactions may only be employed for bona fide event refunds, and not for other money transfers, including without limitation cash advance transactions. You agree to remit funds, that are sufficient to cover refunds due to the Registrant, back to us so that we can process refunds on your behalf.
- Delayed Payment/Non-payment. In the event that you fail to pay any amount owed pursuant to the terms herein to Bizzabo when due, Bizzabo may, in its sole discretion and without limiting any other right or remedy we may have, setoff the amounts owed against any amount due from Bizzabo to you and/or suspend, block, or terminate your Account and cancel any or all other events listed by you following written notice to you and your failure to pay such amounts in full within seven (7) days following the notice.
- Compliance with Law Enforcement. We will comply with law enforcement authorities and may provide them with any and all information you submit to us to assist in any investigation or prosecution they may conduct. If we are requested to provide such information or assistance, we will notify you in writing within three (3) business days of receiving the request, unless such notification is prohibited.
- Third Party Sources and Content.

We do not warrant or support, and we are not liable to you or to the End Users for any of Non-Bizzabo Services.
- Non-Bizzabo Services and Your Data. If you choose to use a Non-Bizzabo Service with Bizzabo Service, you grant us permission to allow the Non-Bizzabo Service and its provider to access your data as required for the interoperation of that Non-Bizzabo Service with Bizzabo Service. We are not responsible for any disclosure, modification or deletion of your data resulting from access by such Non-Bizzabo Service or its provider.

If the provider of a Non-Bizzabo Services ceases to make the Non-Bizzabo Services available for interoperation with the corresponding Bizzabo Service features in a manner acceptable to us, we will not be able to guarantee the continued availability of such Bizzabo Service features, and may cease providing them without entitling you to any refund, credit, or other compensation.
- You acknowledge and agree that regardless of the manner in which Non-Bizzabo Services may be offered to you, Bizzabo merely acts as an intermediary platform between you and such Non-Bizzabo Services providers, and does not in any way endorse any such Non-Bizzabo Services, or shall be in any way responsible or liable to you or to the End Users with respect thereto. Bizzabo will not be a party to, or in any way be responsible for monitoring, any interaction or transaction between you and any such Non-Bizzabo Services providers.

You are solely responsible for your Messages and the consequences of sending them. You grant us a worldwide, revocable, non-exclusive license to use, store and reproduce your Messages solely for the limited purpose of facilitating sending them to your designated recipients (and we may also use the tools or services of third party service providers to facilitate the sending of Messages to your designated recipients). You represent and warrant that you own or have the necessary rights and permissions to use all of the Intellectual Property Rights in and to your Messages, and to grant us a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, license in such Intellectual Property Rights solely for the purpose detailed in this Section 11.
