It’s important that you review these Terms whenever we update them or you use the Subscription Services. If you continue to access and/or use the Subscription Services after we have posted updated Terms it means that you accept and agree to the changes.

You shall not allow access to or use of the Subscription Services by anyone other than Authorized Users.

You and your Authorized Users shall use the Subscription Services exclusively for authorized and legal purposes, consistent with all applicable laws, regulations and the rights of others. You and your Authorized Users shall not use the Subscription Services to transmit any bulk unsolicited commercial communications. You shall keep confidential and not disclose to any third parties, and shall ensure that Authorized Users keep confidential and do not disclose to any third parties, any user identifications, account numbers and account profiles. You acknowledge that the Subscription Services are not designed, intended or authorized for use in hazardous or mission-critical circumstances or for uses requiring fail-safe performance such as the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communications systems, air traffic control systems or weapons control systems, or where failure could lead to death, personal injury or environmental damage. You shall not use, and the above license does not extend to the use of, the Subscription Services for such purposes or under such circumstances.
2.5 Data Maintenance and Backup Procedures. In the event of any loss or corruption of Customer Data, Aurora Solar will use commercially reasonable efforts to restore the lost or corrupted Customer Data from the latest backup of such Customer Data maintained by Aurora Solar’s third party hosted services provider. Aurora Solar will not be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or corruption of Customer Data caused by any third party. AURORA SOLAR’S EFFORTS TO RESTORE LOST OR CORRUPTED CUSTOMER DATA PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION 2.5 WILL CONSTITUTE AURORA SOLAR’S SOLE LIABILITY AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF ANY LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF CUSTOMER DATA IN CONNECTION WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES.
3.1 Fees. You will pay Aurora Solar the fees set forth in the relevant Service Order in accordance with the terms therein and the terms of this Agreement (“Fees”). The Fees are non-refundable after the money back period as provided by Aurora Solar in the relevant Service Order. Aurora Solar reserves the right to change the Fees or applicable charges and to institute new charges and Fees at the end of a Subscription Term. Except as otherwise provided in the relevant Service Order, you will pay Aurora Solar the minimum monthly fee as set forth in the Service Order for use of up to fifty (50) Projects per Authorized User in the Account (the “Monthly Project Allowance”) for each calendar month following the effective date of the Subscription Term (a “Month”) within five (5) days following the beginning of each Month. If your Subscription Term is longer than one (1) Month, then at the end of each Month except for the last Month of your Subscription Term, the unused portion of the Monthly Project Allowance for such Month may be rolled over for use in the next Month in addition to the Monthly Project Allowance allocated for the next Month, provided that no unused portion of any Monthly Project Allowance may be rolled over from one Subscription Term to another Subscription Term and all unused Projects expire without any refund at the end of each Subscription Term. If your subscription is monthly, i.e. your Subscription Term is one (1) Month, you may not roll over any unused portion of any Monthly Project Allowance and all unused Projects expire without any refund at the end of each Subscription Term. Aurora Solar reserves the right to suspend or terminate Company’s Account for consistently repeated Overage under the Account. An “Overage” means when the total aggregate number of Projects used in a Month under your Account exceeds the Monthly Project Allowance. You agree that consistently repeated Overage is a material breach of this Agreement subject to Section 10.2.
3.2 Payments. Aurora Solar will charge the payment method provided by you for Fees on the applicable payment date, including any applicable taxes. If Aurora Solar cannot charge such payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, and Aurora Solar will attempt to charge the payment method again as you may update its payment method information. In accordance with local laws, Aurora Solar may update information regarding your payment method if provided such information by your financial institution. All payments due to Aurora Solar must be made in U.S. dollars. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, all payments are non-refundable. If you fail to make any payment when due, late charges will accrue at the rate of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the highest rate permitted by applicable law, and Aurora Solar may suspend your access to the Subscription Services until all payments are made in full. You will reimburse Aurora Solar for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) in collecting any late payments or interest.
3.3 Taxes. You are responsible for all sales, use, ad valorem and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind (other than any taxes imposed on Aurora Solar’s net income) imposed by any federal, state, multinational or local governmental authority on any amount payable by you to Aurora Solar hereunder (“Taxes”). Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that you are required to deduct or withhold any Taxes from the amounts payable to Aurora Solar hereunder, you will pay the applicable additional amount, so that Aurora Solar receives the amounts due to it hereunder in full, as if there were no withholding or deduction.
OWNERSHIP. As between Aurora Solar and you, Aurora Solar owns all worldwide right, title and interest in and to the Subscription Services including all Intellectual Property Rights therein. As between you and Aurora Solar, you own all worldwide right, title and interest in and to all Customer Data and Aurora Solar will not obtain any ownership rights or interests in such data. You hereby grant and will grant to Aurora Solar a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, transferable (in whole or in part), sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicenses) license to: (a) use the Customer Data as is reasonably necessary to provide the Subscription Services hereunder for the term of this Agreement and (b) archive and perform analytics on the Customer Data and to distribute, publicly display or perform or otherwise use the results of the same provided such results are in an aggregated form that does not personally identify an individual person, and this license in subsection (b) is irrevocable and perpetual, and (c) to list on its website or in other informational or promotional material your business name (first name and last initial if you are an individual), city, state, country and website address to identify you as an Aurora Solar customer, and this license in subsection (c) shall be perpetual unless and until Aurora Solar receives written notice from you revoking such license under this subsection (c). The parties agree that the use of Company’s name as provided for in subsection (c) and any goodwill arising therefrom shall inure to the owner of such name, and upon written request, Aurora Solar will provide specimens of its usage and take corrective action as reasonably necessary to protect any trademark or other rights therein. To the extent you provide suggestions or feedback to Aurora Solar about its Subscription Services or Service-Generated Output (collectively, “Feedback”), you hereby irrevocably assign and will assign to Aurora Solar all right, title and interest you may have in and to such Feedback, and to the extent such assignment is not valid or complete, you hereby grant and will grant to Aurora Solar an exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, transferable (in whole or in part), sublicensable (through multiple tiers of sublicenses), worldwide, irrevocable and perpetual license under all Intellectual Property Rights to use and practice such Feedback in any manner, and irrevocably waive and agree to never assert any claim against Aurora Solar, its directors, officers, shareholders, employees or successors in interest relating to such Feedback.

You shall be liable for any violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement by any Authorized User.

Aurora Solar shall not be responsible for any loss or corruption of data, lost communications, or any other loss or damage of any kind arising from any such telecommunications and Internet services.
7.1 Indemnification by Aurora Solar. Subject to Section 7.6, Aurora Solar shall defend any suit or action brought against you to the extent that it is based upon a third party claim that Aurora Solar, through the Subscription Services as provided by Aurora Solar to you pursuant to this Agreement, has knowingly infringed any U.S. copyright or misappropriated any trade secret, and will pay any costs, damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees attributable to such claim that are awarded in final judgment against or paid in settlement by you.
7.2 Exclusions. Notwithstanding the terms of Section 7.1, Aurora Solar will have no liability for any infringement or misappropriation claim of any kind to the extent that it results from: (a) the combination, operation or use of the Subscription Services with equipment, devices, software or data (including without limitation Customer Data) not supplied by Aurora Solar, if a claim would not have occurred but for such combination, operation or use; or (b) your or an Authorized User’s misuse of the Subscription Services or use of the Subscription Services other than in accordance with this Agreement.
7.3 Injunction. If your use of the Subscription Services is, or in Aurora Solar’s opinion is likely to be, enjoined due to the type of claim specified in Section 7.1, then Aurora Solar may at its sole option and expense: (a) replace or modify the Subscription Services to make them non-infringing and of equivalent functionality; (b) procure for you the right to continue using the Subscription Services under the terms of this Agreement; or (c) if Aurora Solar is unable to accomplish either (a) or (b) despite using its reasonable efforts, terminate your rights and Aurora Solar’s obligation under this Agreement with respect to such Subscription Services and refund to you a pro-rata portion of the fees paid for the remaining term during which you would have had access to the Subscription Services.
7.4 Sole Remedy. THE FOREGOING STATES THE ENTIRE OBLIGATION OF AURORA SOLAR AND ITS LICENSORS WITH RESPECT TO ANY ALLEGED OR ACTUAL INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS BY THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES. The parties acknowledge that Aurora Solar has entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the limitations of liability and the disclaimers of damages set forth herein, and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties. The parties agree that the limitations and exclusions of liability and disclaimers specified in this Agreement will survive and apply even if found to have failed of their essential purpose.
7.5 Indemnification by You. You shall defend Aurora Solar, its officers, directors, shareholders, employees and successors in interest (collectively, “Aurora Solar Indemnitees”), from and against any action or suit brought against an Aurora Solar Indemnitee by a third party in connection with your or an Authorized User’s use of the Subscription Services (other than any claim for which Aurora Solar is responsible under Section 7.1) including but not limited to a claim that the use or provision of Customer Data or your use of the Subscription Services infringe or misappropriate any Intellectual Property Rights or privacy rights of a third party, and will pay any costs, damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees attributable to such claim that are awarded in final judgment against or paid in settlement by Aurora Solar.
7.6 Conditions of Indemnification. As a condition to the parties’ respective obligations under this Section 7, the party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnitee”) will: (i) promptly notify the other party (the “Indemnitor”) of the claim for which it is seeking indemnification; (ii) grant the Indemnitor sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim; and (iii) provide the Indemnitor, at the Indemnitor’s expense, with all assistance, information and authority reasonably required for the defense and settlement of the claim. The Indemnitor will not settle any claim that involves a remedy other than payment without the Indemnitee’s prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The Indemnitee has the right to retain counsel, at its expense, to participate in the defense or settlement of any claim. The Indemnitor will not be liable for any settlement or compromise that the Indemnitee enters into without the Indemnitor’s prior written consent.
8.1 Definition. “Confidential Information” means any business or technical information disclosed by one party to the other party that: (a) if disclosed in writing, is marked “confidential” or “proprietary” at the time of disclosure; (b) if disclosed orally, is identified as “confidential” or “proprietary” at the time of disclosure, and is summarized in a writing sent by the disclosing party to the receiving party within thirty (30) days after any such disclosure; or (c) under the circumstances, a person exercising reasonable business judgment would understand to be confidential or proprietary. For clarity, Customer Data is your Confidential Information and the Subscription Services are Aurora Solar’s Confidential Information.
8.2 Exclusions. The obligations and restrictions set forth in Section 8.3 will not apply to any information that: (a) is or becomes generally known to the public through no fault of or breach of this Agreement by the receiving party; (b) is rightfully known by the receiving party at the time of disclosure; (c) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information; or (d) the receiving party rightfully obtains from a third party who has the right to disclose such information without breach of any confidentiality obligation to the disclosing party.
8.4 Permitted Disclosures. The provisions of this Section 8 will not restrict either party from disclosing Confidential Information pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body; provided that the party required to make such a disclosure gives reasonable notice to the other party to enable it to contest such order or requirement or limit the scope of such request. The party responding to such an order or requirement will only disclose that information that is expressly required.
9.1 Exclusion of Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL AURORA SOLAR BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS OR PROFITS) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE, OPERATION OR PERFORMANCE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES OR THE SERVICE-GENERATED OUTPUT, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED UPON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT AURORA SOLAR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE.
9.2 Total Liability. AURORA SOLAR’S TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY YOU IN THE TWELVE MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE CLAIM OR ACTION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY HEREUNDER.
10.1 Agreement Term. This Agreement commences on the date you click on the checkbox marked “Accept Terms” or first access or use the Subscription Services, whichever occurs earlier (“Effective Date”) and, unless terminated earlier by either party in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, will continue for the term specified in the applicable Service Order (the “Initial Term”). For clarity, if the Effective Date is not the first day of a calendar month, the Initial Term shall include the period of Subscription Term set forth in the Service Order plus remainder of the calendar month that the Effective Date falls within and each subsequent Subscription Term shall begin on the first day of a calendar month. This Agreement shall automatically renew for additional periods equal to the expiring term or as otherwise set forth in the Service Order (such additional periods, “Renewal Terms”) unless either party notifies the other in writing of its intent not to renew at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current term. The Initial Term and Renewal Terms are collectively referred to as the “Term”, and each of the Initial Term and Renewal Terms is referred to as a “Subscription Term”.
10.2 Termination for Breach. Either party will have the right to terminate this Agreement if the other party breaches any material term of this Agreement and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof; provided that notwithstanding the foregoing, the cure period for any default with respect to payment shall be five (5) business days.
10.3 Effect of Termination. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement: (a) your and your Authorized Users’ right to access and use the Subscription Services will immediately terminate, and you and your Authorized Users will immediately cease all use of the Subscription Services; and (b) you will promptly destroy or return to Aurora Solar all of its Confidential Information in your possession or control. Aurora Solar may, but is not required to: (i) retain Customer Data after termination or expiration of this Agreement for the purpose of facilitating your reengagement of the Subscription Services, to derive anonymized statistics and/or for other internal business purposes related to the Subscription Services and (ii) destroy or otherwise dispose of any Customer Data in its possession.
10.4 Survival. The rights and obligations of Aurora Solar and you contained in Sections 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6.2, 6.3, 7, 8, 9, 10.3, 10.4, 11, 12 and 13, will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
11 FORCE MAJEURE. Neither party shall be liable for any alleged loss or damages resulting from any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder (except for the payment of money) due to events beyond the reasonable control of such party, which may include without limitation denial-of-service attacks, strikes, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, natural disasters, power outages, acts of God, war, terrorism, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes and material shortages (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Upon the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event, the non-performing party will be excused from any further performance of its obligations effected by the Force Majeure Event for so long as the event continues and such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to resume performance.

HeySummit is not responsible for any part of the above Additional Terms and is only responsible for the Core Terms of Service stated hereunder:
These Core Terms of Service (the “User Terms”) govern Your access to or use of the online and hybrid events platform and services generally described at www.heysummit.com and its associated services (online and offline), products, software, mobile applications, information, networks, distribution channels, components, APIs, and documentation (”Services”) offered or made available by Hey Summit Ltd. or its parents, subsidiaries, and corporate affiliates (“HeySummit” "we" "us" or “Our").
These User Terms and the Community Guidelines incorporated herein by reference, form a legally binding contract between You and us.
Review the Privacy Statement for more information on how we collect and use data relating to the use of Our services and products. The Privacy Statement is a changing policy that is also a part of these User Terms.
You are subject to these User Terms (a “User”) if:
The term “Host” refers to the company, entity, institution, organisation, or individual who is the public facing “brand” of the virtual or hybrid event (“Event”). A Host could be a company, or an individual.
If the Host enters into customer terms with HeySummit, such as the HeySummit’s Platform Terms or other HeySummit customer agreement (including agreements provided to the Host via a referral partner), it is a direct customer of HeySummit.
If the Host is not a direct customer of HeySummit, it typically means that the Host acquired the right to use the Services via a third party reseller or agency, in which case the Host’s use of the Services are governed by its agreement with that reseller or agency.
In each case above, the Host is subject to those separate customer and/or reseller or agency terms, and the Host’s Participants and Team Members are subject to these User Terms; provided however that if You are the individual who is both the Host and the named HeySummit account holder, these User Terms also apply to Your use of the account and Services in Your capacity as a Team Member.
Events are organised and administered by the Host, not HeySummit. We are a third party providing the Services and its incorporated technology platforms (the “Platform”) to facilitate an Event taking place. For the purpose of this Agreement, the Services includes the Platform.
We are not responsible and cannot be held liable for any matters described in the Host Responsibility section (below).
The Host has full control over the running of any Event. This includes the invitee list, when Events are created and how they are configured, and what functionality and third-party integrations are available for use at each Event.
The Host is solely responsible:
It is solely the Host’s responsibility to respond to and resolve any dispute between the Host and any Participant or Team Member. The Host may also block or revoke a User’s access to its Event at any time and in its sole discretion.
HeySummit’s customer success team and mechanisms may be used to support such resolutions but it will be up to the Host to ensure the relevant information is provided to HeySummit and to troubleshoot an adequate resolution for HeySummit to assist and is therefore still the sole responsibility of the Host.
The Host will remain responsible for any resolution and the support of HeySummit throughout the resolution processes.
Subject to these User Terms, We grant You a limited, non-sublicensable license to access and use HeySummit:
You agree that You will not (unless You have Our express prior permission):
As part of an Event, You may submit or make available certain content, information, and data, such as messages or files (“Contributions”). You are responsible for Your Contributions, and You assume all risks associated with Your Contributions, including anyone’s reliance on its quality, accuracy, reliability, appropriateness, or any disclosure that makes You or anyone else personally identifiable. You represent and warrant that You own or have the necessary rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorise the use of Contributions as described herein. You may not imply that Contributions are in any way sponsored or endorsed by HeySummit.
We are not responsible or liable to You or any third-party for the content or accuracy of any Contributions. We may reject or remove Contributions (such as Contributions that violate these Terms, Our Community Guidelines, or applicable law), but we have no obligation to do so.
If You believe a Contribution infringes Your intellectual property rights, see Our Copyright Infringement Policy in Our Community Guidelines.
As between HeySummit and the Host, the Host is the data controller of recordings of Event content, including any of Your personal data embedded therein. We explain Our role as the data processor of such personal data in the Privacy Statement but we strongly encourage You to review the privacy notices and policies of the Host and other participants in the Event as applicable.
We are not responsible for the usage of your personal data by the Host and the Host understands that it is not the responsibility of HeySummit to make the usage by the Host of User’s personal data. HeySummit is solely responsible for their role in processing of personal data as set out by the Privacy Statement.
It is the responsibility of the Host to ensure any additional processing or usage of personal data is made clear to the data subject and explained clearly before conducting the Event.
You may not use the Services to collect data directly from children under the age of 13. In respect of any Event attended by children under the age of 13, a parent or legal guardian, as applicable, must register the minor and/or purchase the ticket on their behalf.
