By default all Subscription Types unless stated otherwise in writing have auto renew as a feature.

In addition to the price due for your Subscription Type, if there are delinquent amounts or chargebacks associated with your payment, you may be charged fees that are incidental to our collection of these delinquent amounts and chargebacks. Such fees or charges may include collection fees, convenience fees or other third-party charges.
If EventForte is unable to collect any amounts due via your selected payment method, you authorize EventForte to charge any other payment methods on file in your EventForte account (unless you have previously removed the authorization to charge such payment method(s)).

7.2. Currency Conversion. EventForte may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from Users to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (i.e. to the nearest dollar, euro or other supported currency); for example, EventForte may round up an amount of $103.50 to $104.00, and round down on an amount of $103.49 to $103.00. For currencies that are denominated in large numbers, EventForte may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100, or 1000 of the currency; for example, EventForte may round up an amount of 1145 up to 1150 and 1144 down to 1140 if the currency is denominated base 10.
Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for international transactions. If you are making a payment from outside of the United States on a credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. Should such an event occur, you hereby understand that a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank on the day that they process the transaction.

12.1. Usage Disclaimer. EventForte provides services and software affiliated with the hospitality industry but is in no way a hospitality provider such as a hotel or venue (collectively, all hospitality providers such as hotels will be referred to as “Venues”). Specific spaces within a Venue such as a ballroom, meeting room, or a break up space shall be known collectively as “Room(s)”.
Except where claimed pursuant to Section 11, EventForte therefore claims no right to the intellectual property regarding the names of the various Venues, and the names of the rooms of the various Venues displayed in any of EventForte’s products and software.

Within the Platform, Users may have the ability to create diagrams of Venues, place virtual furniture, and engage in User generated content. EventForte does not verify the accuracy of the dimensions of the diagrams, nor does EventForte guarantee the accuracy of the dimensions of the virtual furniture.

Additionally, any documents the Platform generates such as a generated PDF of the Venue or Room in question may not be accurate.
EventForte additionally does not claim that any Venue or Room measurements, or anything placed within the Platform would be allowable by applicable federal, state, or local laws or regulation (e.g. zoning laws or fire code safety regulations). All Users are responsible (and EventForte is not responsible) for making sure all planning done within the Platform would be allowable by all applicable laws and regulations.

There is, however, no guarantee that the Platform and/or Hospitality Services will help you earn any money.

EventForte does not, for instance, claim that the Hospitality Services or the Platform are “get rich quick schemes.”
Your level of success in attaining the desired results through the Platform and/or the Hospitality Services depend on the time you devote to the ideas and techniques discussed in the Platform and Hospitality Services, your finances, knowledge and various skills. Since these factors differ according to every party, person, or entity, EventForte cannot guarantee your success or income level. Nor is EventForte responsible for any of your actions.
Many factors will be important in determining your actual results and no guarantees are made that you will achieve results similar to others. In fact no guarantees are made that you will achieve any results from our ideas and techniques from the Platform and/or Hospitality Services.

The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Los Angeles County (CA), or any other location we agree to.
22.6. Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you or EventForte may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Los Angeles (CA) or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the services or software EventForte provides, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California to resolve your claim.
22.7 NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren't allowed.
22.8. Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 26 (“Modifications”), if EventForte changes this Section 26 (“Resolving Disputes”) after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email at email@example.com) within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of EventForte’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and EventForte in accordance with the provisions of the “Resolving Disputes” section as of the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
These Terms of Service will be governed by California law except for its conflicts of laws principles, unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of any other jurisdiction. Each party irrevocably submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of California and waives any objection to proceedings in any such court on the grounds of venue or on the grounds that the proceedings have been brought in an inconvenient forum. The submission in this Section 23 herein shall not affect the right of EventForte to take proceedings in any other jurisdiction nor shall the taking of proceedings in any jurisdiction preclude EventForte from taking proceedings in any other jurisdiction.
These terms of service constitute the entire agreement between you and EventForte with respect to the subject matter of these terms of service, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These terms of service create no third party beneficiary rights.
EventForte's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the terms of service will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. EventForte may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Platform.
We may revise these terms of service from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account, posting on our blog, on our homepage, or on this page). By continuing to use or access the Platform after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms of Service.
We do our best to keep EventForte safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to keep EventForte safe, which includes the following commitments by you:
In the event You present a purchase order or similar documents (“Other Documents”) contemporaneous with this Agreement with or after the execution of this Agreement, both You and EventForte agree that the purpose of such Other Documents is solely for internal payment processes purposes. Such execution of such Other Documents by EventForte does not constitute an acceptance of any of the terms or conditions of such Other Documents. You represent, warrant, and agree that any such Other Documents are solely for internal payment processing purposes and that such Other Documents shall not be and are not intended to add new terms and conditions, or supersede or contradict any terms in this Agreement. You additionally agree not to make claims or assert any terms or conditions against EventForte based on or contained in such Other Documents.
In the event EventForte has signed a non-disclosure agreement or a similar agreement (“NDA”) with You prior to the acceptance of this Agreement, You additionally agree that this Agreement supersedes and replaces any such NDA, making such NDA null and void at EventForte's option.
30.1. Termination. EventForte reserves the right to terminate your account at any time for any reason, including breach of any terms of this agreement. YOU ARE HOWEVER STILL LIABLE FOR ALL OUTSTANDING BILLS TO EVENTFORTE IN THE EVENT OF ACCOUNT CANCELLATION. In the event of account cancellation you may lose all data related to your account.
When this Agreement has been terminated, you are not entitled to a restoration of your EventForte account or any of your User Content. If your access to or use of the Platform has been limited or your EventForte account has been suspended or this Agreement has been terminated by us, you may not register a new EventForte account or access and use the Platform through an EventForte account of another User.
30.2. Survival. All terms of this Agreement which by their nature extend beyond their termination shall remain in effect until fulfilled and apply to respective successors and assigns.
