These terms and using your Get account
Updated as of April 20, 2020
When these Terms use the term “Organisers” or “Merchants” we mean event creators, student clubs, organisations or societies using the Services to create events or merchandise for consumers using our Services (a) to consume information about, or attend, events (“Consumers”), or (b) for any other reason. Organisers, Consumers and third parties using our Services are all referred to in these Terms collectively as “Users”, “you” or “your”.
Service means the www.useget.com website and the Get mobile application operated by Get.
What the “Terms of Service” Means
These Terms of Service and the other documents referenced in them (including in Section 1.3 above) comprise Get’s “Terms.” These Terms are a legally binding agreement between you and Get governing your access to and use of the Services and setting out your rights and responsibilities when you use the Services. By using any of our Services (including browsing a Site), you are agreeing to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use or access the Services. If you will be using the Services on behalf of an entity (such as on behalf of your employer), you agree to these Terms on behalf of that entity and its affiliates and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such case, “you” and “your” will refer to that entity as well as yourself.
What We Do
Get’s Services provide a platform for Organisers to create webpages related to their events, promote those pages and events to visitors or browsers on the Services or elsewhere online. Get’s platform also provides digital membership features that these Organisers can use to provide membership-exclusive, or partnership offers to their members and students.
Descriptions of other and more specific services can generally be found on the Site of each of the Get Properties.
Get is not the creator, organiser or owner of the events, merchandise, clubs or societies listed on the Services. Rather, Get provides its Services, which allow Organisers to manage ticketing and registration and promote their events.
The Organiser is solely responsible for ensuring that any page displaying an event on the Services (and the event itself) meet all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that the goods and services described on the event page are delivered as described and in an accurate satisfactory manner.
The Organiser of a paid event selects the payment processing method for its event. Consumers must use whatever payment processing method the Organiser selects. If an Organiser uses Get Payment Processing, Get also acts as the Organiser’s limited agent solely for the purpose of using our third party payment service providers to collect payments made by Consumers on the Services and passing such payments to the Organiser.
Privacy and Consumer Information
If you are an Organiser, you represent, warrant and agree that (a) you will at all times comply with all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations with respect to information you collect from (or receive about) consumers, and (b) you will at all times comply with any applicable policies posted on the Services with respect to information you collect from (or receive about) consumers.
Start of term
These Terms apply to you as soon as you access the Services by any means and continue in effect until they are terminated. There may come a time where either you or Get decides it’s best to part ways. When that happens, these Terms will generally no longer apply.
Get may terminate your right to use the Services at any time (a) if you violate or breach these Terms; (b) if you misuse or abuse the Services, or use the Services in a way not intended or permitted by Get; or (c) if allowing you to access and use the Services would violate any applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations or would expose Get to legal liability. Get may choose to stop offering the Services, or any particular portion of the Service, or modify or replace any aspect of the Service, at any time. Get retains the right to terminate your access to the Services, without prior notice. You agree that Get will not be liable to you or any third-party as a result of its termination of your right to use or otherwise access the Services.
Except to the extent you have agreed otherwise in a separate written agreement between you and Get, you may terminate your access to the Services and the general applicability of Terms by deleting your account. If you are a Consumer using the Services without a registered account, your only option for these Terms to no longer apply is to stop accessing the Services indefinitely. So long as you continue to access the Services, even without an account, these Terms remain in effect. If there is a separate agreement between you and Get governing your use of the Services and that agreement terminates or expires, these Terms (as unmodified by such agreement) will govern your use of the Services after such termination or expiration. 4.4
All provisions of these Terms that by their nature should survive termination of these Terms will survive (including, without limitation, all limitations on liability, releases, indemnification obligations, disclaimers of warranties, agreements to arbitrate, choices of law and judicial forum and intellectual property protections and licences).
This is where you agree to cover Get if you use the Service in a way at causes Get to be the subject of a legal matter, or to face other claims or expenses.
You hereby agree to release Get from all damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses, liabilities, costs and expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of a dispute between you and a third party (including other Users) in connection with the Services or any event listed on the Services. 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.”
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Get and each of its and their respective officers, directors, agents, co-branders, licensors, payment processing partners, other partners and employees, harmless from any and all damage (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), loss, liability, cost and expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ and accounting fees) resulting from any claim, demand, suit, proceeding (whether before an arbitrator, court, mediator or otherwise) or investigation made by any third party (each a “Claim”) relating to or arising out of: (a) your breach of these Terms (including any terms or agreements or policies incorporated into these Terms); (b) your use of the Services in violation of these Terms or other policies we post or make available; (c) your breach of any applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule or regulation or the rights of any third party; (d) Get’s collection and remission of taxes; and (e) if you are an Organiser, your events (including where Get has provided Services with respect to those events), provided that in the case of (e) this indemnification will not apply to the extent that the Claim arises out of Get’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Get will provide notice to you of any such Claim, provided that the failure or delay by Get in providing such notice will not limit your obligations hereunder except to the extent you are materially prejudiced by such failure. Also, in certain circumstances, Get may choose to handle the Claim ourselves, in which case you agree to cooperate with Get in any way we request.
We strive to provide Services in the way you need them, but there are some things it is important for you to understand that we cannot promise.
To the extent permitted by applicable laws, the Services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Get expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, title, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose. For example, Get makes no warranty that (a) the Services (or any portion of the Services) will meet your requirements or expectations; (b) the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; or (c) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Services will be accurate or reliable.
You acknowledge that Get has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety, accuracy or legality of any event or Content associated with an event, the truth or accuracy of any information provided by Users (including the Consumer’s personal information shared with Organisers in connection with events) or the ability of any User to perform or actually complete a transaction. Get has no responsibility to you for, and hereby disclaims all liability arising from, the acts or omissions of any third parties Get requires to provide the Services or an Organiser chooses to assist with an event.
You understand and agree that some events may carry inherent risk, and by participating in those events, you choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some events may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those events.
