Terms of Service

Bevy’s Terms of Use

These Terms of Use (the “Terms”)  contain the complete terms and conditions that apply to your use of the internet-based applications, software, services and websites (the “Services”) offered by Bevy Labs, Inc. (“Bevy”, “we” and “us”), including the virtual event hosting platform for organizations and individuals who want to host events (“Events”) online. If you wish to use the Services please read these terms of  use carefully. By accessing the Service, or by clicking “I accept” or otherwise indicating your acceptance when creating an account or purchasing a subscription, you agree to become bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, then you may not access or use the Service.

Applicability

These Terms apply to all Bevy users. We use the term “Host” to refer to companies, businesses, individuals and organizations who use Bevy’s platform to organize and host their Events and who have purchased paid subscriptions to access as use the Services pursuant to a separate written agreement (a “Subscription”).

Registration

For you to complete the sign-up process in our site, you must provide your full legal name, a valid email address, member name and any other information needed in order to complete the signup process. You must be responsible for keeping your password secure and be responsible for all activities and contents that are uploaded under your account. You must not transmit any worms or viruses or any code of a destructive nature. Any information provided by you or gathered by the Service or third-parties during any visit to the site shall be subject to the terms of Bevy’s Privacy Policy.

Types of Users

There are two different types of users which these terms apply to:

  • “Organizers”. An Organizer, is an individual, normally such as an employee, contractor or partner of a Host who is part of the team which helps the Host manage, run and host Events on Bevy’s platform. Organizers have special access privileges and are invited to access and use Bevy by a Host.
  • “Participants”. A Participant is anyone who attends an Event on Bevy’s platform. Participants are either invited to a specific Event by a Host or have signed up for a Bevy account and attend an Event using their account details. Participants also include anyone that has been invited by the Host to speak at an Event, exhibit at an Event, or sponsor an Event.

Our role

Events are organized and administered by the Host, not Bevy. We are a third-party providing the platform for an event to take place. We are not responsible and cannot be held liable for any aspect of the Event not directly related to the technical facility of the Event, including but not limited to:

  • If an event is cancelled for any reason by the Host;
  • For how an event is run;
  • For any content produced or activities carried out during an Event;
  • For the conduct or Contributions (as defined below) of any other Participants; or
  • For any technical difficulties arising from any equipment, hardware and ancillary services needed to connect to, access or otherwise use the Services.

Complaints

If you wish to discuss any of the matters listed above, or you have paid for a ticket to an Event and would like to request a refund, you should contact the Host, whose responsibility it is to deal with the matter.

Our only responsibility is to provide the technical facility for the Event to run. If you are experiencing technical issues with Bevy, please contact us as set out in this Agreement.

The Host’s Responsibilities to Events’ participants

The Host has full control over the running of any Event. This includes control over any Participants, when Events are created, how they are configured, and what functionality and third-party integrations are activated for use at each Event.

The Host may prohibit or withdraw access to Events to any Participant at any time, with or without notice.

It is solely the Host’s responsibility to:

  • Inform you of any relevant policies and practices of the Host that apply to your use of Bevy outside of these Terms of Use;
  • Inform you of any relevant policies and procedures of the Host that apply to your use of Bevy outside of these Terms of Use;
  • Respond to and resolve any dispute between the Host and you, or between you and any other Participant.
