*GOVERNING LAW *
If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. If such costs are determined to by the arbitrator to be excessive, we will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in US County, California. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.
Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

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.
Solely in connection with Your interaction with the applicable Event, You grant to HeySummit a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, sublicensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, license to the Contributions to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, distribute, perform and display such Contributions in any form, format, media, and channel.
All intellectual property rights in the Services throughout the world belong to Us (or Our licensors). You have no intellectual property rights in, or to, the Services other than the right to use it in accordance with these User Terms.
If You provide feedback, comments or suggestions for improvements related to any HeySummit Services or products (in written, oral, or any other form) (“Feedback”), You represent and warrant that You (a) have the right to disclose the Feedback, (b) the Feedback does not violate the rights of any other person or entity, and (c) the Feedback does not contain the confidential or proprietary information of any third party or parties. You (i) acknowledge that HeySummit may have something similar to the Feedback already under consideration or in development, and (ii) assign to HeySummit Your entire right, title, and interest (including any intellectual property rights) in and to Feedback. To the extent that any right, title, or interest cannot be assigned under applicable law, You hereby grant us an irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide license to use, modify, prepare derivative works from, publish, distribute and sublicense the Feedback without any compensation, and waive any right, title or interest and consent to any action of HeySummit, its service providers, successors, and assigns that would violate such right, title, or interest in the absence of such consent. You agree to execute any documents necessary to effect the foregoing assignment, waivers, or consents.
You may promote, administer, or conduct a promotion, contest, or sweepstakes on, through or using Services (a “Promotion”), only if You:
(a) carry out all Promotions in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and Our Community Guidelines;
(b) You make expressly clear that the Promotion is Yours and that HeySummit does not sponsor, co-sponsor, endorse or support the Promotion.
You will be solely responsible for all aspects of, and expenses related to, Your Promotion, including, without limitation, the execution, administration, and operation of the Promotion, drafting and posting any official rules, selecting winners, issuing prizes, and obtaining all necessary third-party permissions and approvals.
