The use of the Offpeak Sites for any purpose not expressly permitted by these Terms is prohibited and will be deemed to be a material breach of these Terms.
  2. Customer Support. Offpeak will provide commercially reasonable customer support to Clients.

  2. Access and Support. Client agrees to provide Offpeak with the same access and support necessary to market, promote, and distribute the Tickets that Client makes available to other resellers.
  3. Listing Content. Client must fully and accurately describe the Tickets being offered on the Offpeak Sites at all times, provided that Offpeak reserves the right to exercise final editorial control.  Listings may include Tickets that are pre-approved by Offpeak in its sole discretion, however Client is solely responsible for the accuracy of all Client Content.  Client agrees to immediately notify Offpeak in writing if any of the Client Content or Tickets do not comply with all applicable laws.

 

  1. LISTING CHANGES
  1. The Client Point of Contact will be responsible for continuously updating the scheduling and pricing for the Tickets by communicating any changes to Offpeak. Client will promptly provide updated Client Content to Offpeak when requested by Offpeak.
  2. If Client wants to change a Client Content on the Offpeak Sites (other than the scheduling and pricing of such Tickets), Client must provide Offpeak with prior written notice of the proposed change at least thirty (30) business days in advance. No changes to the Tickets will become effective on the Offpeak Sites without Offpeak’s approval in its sole discretion.
  3. If Client wants to stop offering Tickets on the Offpeak Sites, Client must provide Offpeak with prior written notice of the proposed discontinuance at least ten (10) business days in advance.

 

  1. PROMOTION, MARKETING AND PRICING OF TICKETS
  1. Promotion by Offpeak. Offpeak has the unlimited right and option to promote Client’s Tickets on or through Offpeak Sites, email marketing, and any other online or offline third-party marketing channel as determined by Offpeak in its sole discretion.  Offpeak also may identify the Client as a client of Offpeak, and Client consents in advance to all such uses.  The manner and method by which Tickets are displayed on Offpeak Sites, and to what extent, frequency, and duration, also will be determined by Offpeak in its sole discretion.
  2. Ticket Pricing. Client and Offpeak are jointly responsible for negotiating and setting prices for Tickets, provided that Offpeak and its sublicensees will have the right to offer the Tickets to Consumers at the lowest retail prices and best terms offered by Client for such Tickets in the same or similar market ("Lowest Retail Price").  If Offpeak determines that Client’s pricing is not the Lowest Retail Price for the relevant Tickets, Offpeak may use the lower price on the Offpeak Sites.

 

  1. TICKET SALE LOGISTICS
  1. Sale and Vouchers. Offpeak will sell the Tickets on Client’s behalf to Consumers through the Offpeak Sites, provide each purchasing Consumer with a Voucher, and inform Client in a timely manner that a Ticket has been purchased.  The retail price of each Voucher will be the "all inclusive" and total charge made to the Consumer for the Ticket, unless otherwise expressly noted in the Offpeak Site listing.  
  2. Honoring Vouchers. The Client understands that, unless otherwise agreed by Offpeak in writing, regardless of any timed entry requirements set by the Client for Prime Tickets, that Vouchers are to be valid (and accepted by the Client for Consumers to gain entry to the Client’s event, experience, or activity) during all Offpeak Times during the 30 days (or the number of days as agreed by both Parties) following the date of Ticket purchase by the Consumer, even after the Term of these Terms expire.  If the Client’s event, experience, or activity is not open or available when the Consumer seeks to redeem the Voucher, then subject to applicable law, (a) Client agrees to offer the Consumer a similar service of equal or greater value and resolve any post purchase issues directly with the Consumer, and (b) if the Consumer refuses the alternative offer, then Offpeak reserves the right to issue a full refund to the Consumer and deduct the same from any current or future payments due to Client.   Notwithstanding the forgoing, Client will (a) notify Offpeak 5 days in advance of any closures or changes to operating hours so Offpeak can notify Voucher holders of the changes and update all Offpeak Sites with this information, and (b) update the Client’s website prominently showing any change in operating hours.
  3. Redeeming Vouchers.  Consumer understands and agrees that all Vouchers for Tickets purchased are valid only for entry during off-peak times (as defined on the Voucher) during the 30 days (or the number of days as agreed by both Parties) following the purchase date.  The Consumer understands and agrees that Client will make best efforts to honor entry during these hours, but that emergency closures can sometimes occur, so the Consumer is therefore responsible for checking the Client’s event website and Offpeak Sites for any changes to operating hours prior to arrival.
  4. Legal Compliance. Client agrees to comply with all applicable laws with respect to the Tickets and the other subject matter of these Terms.  Client’s obligations under these Terms shall include compliance with laws prohibiting the provision of alcohol or tobacco or other restricted products to minors.  If Client refuses to accept a Voucher because Client believes it is unlawful to do so, Client will notify Offpeak immediately in writing and Offpeak shall be relieved of any obligation to pay Client for the Tickets represented by the Voucher.

 

  1. FEEDBACK AND REVIEWS.
  1. Client (a) agrees that Offpeak Sites may implement mechanisms that rate, and allow Consumers to rate, and provide photos, videos, reviews and commentary regarding Client, Client’s event, experience, or activity, and the Client’s Tickets (together "Feedback"); (b) consents to Feedback being made publicly available and distributed; (c) agrees that all Feedback is (as between the parties) owned by Offpeak or the relevant third party provider, except for any Client Content included therein; (d) agrees that neither Offpeak nor any third party provider shall have any responsibility or liability to Client or an Affiliate in the case of negative or disputed Feedback, and all such responsibility or liabilities are hereby disclaimed; and (e) agrees that Offpeak or the third party provider may limit Client’s activities on the Offpeak Sites based upon Feedback.  Client also agrees to not upload any feedback from any other third party websites to the Offpeak Sites without the prior written consent of Offpeak (which may be withheld in its sole discretion), and to not self-generate positive Feedback regarding the Client, Client’s event, experience, or activity, or Client’s Tickets or upload any negative Feedback for other merchants on the Offpeak Sites, either directly or by persons under Client’s direction.

 

  1. DATA.
  1. Offpeak owns all individual Consumer and sales information collected by Offpeak in connection with the Tickets sold through the Offpeak Sites.  Any such information about a Consumer provided by Offpeak to Client shall be used by Client solely to honor the Consumer’s Voucher and provide entry or other agreed upon services to the Consumer as stated on the Voucher.

 

  1. FEES; COLLECTION AND REMITTANCE; CHARGEBACKS; REFUNDS
  1. Fees. Offpeak shall be paid a commission (“Commission”) or a flat fee (“Flat Fee”) on all of the Tickets purchased through Offpeak Sites, as set forth and agreed to in writing between Offpeak and the Client.  Offpeak will also be paid any other Offpeak Fees as agreed to in writing between Offpeak and the Client. Offpeak will withhold and retain the Offpeak Fees for its own account from Consumer Payments (defined below) and remit any net Client Payment (defined below) to Client as described below.  Offpeak also reserves the right to invoice Client for Offpeak Fees in Offpeak’s sole discretion.  Payment of each invoice is due within thirty (30) days of the invoice date.  Client will reimburse any reasonable costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Offpeak to collect any amount that is not paid when due.
  2. Collection and Remittance. Offpeak will typically fully receive payments collected by Offpeak from Consumers through Stripe, Shopify, or other third-party payment platforms within three (3) business days after the purchase date.  At Offpeak’s discretion but no later than on the Monday or Tuesday following receipt and clearance of payments from our payment processor, Offpeak will remit to Client, the total amount of the payments collected by Offpeak from Consumers for the Client Services (“Consumer Payments”) minus all Commissions, Flat Fees and other Offpeak Fees and amounts due to Offpeak, as well as all Consumer refunds, Chargebacks, and Fraudulent Charges.  All such payments by Offpeak are collectively referred to as “Client Payments”.  Unless otherwise agreed to in writing between the Client and Offpeak, Client Payments will be made at Offpeak’s discretion but no later than on the Monday or Tuesday following receipt and clearance of payments from our payment processor.  All Client Payments will be converted into and made in U.S. Dollars, unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in advance.  Offpeak is not responsible for the collection or payment of any incidentals from Consumers.  Offpeak has the right to recoup any wire fees due to incorrect or incomplete bank information provided by the Client, and may exercise the right to do so.
  3. Taxes. With respect to payments collected by Offpeak for purchases of Tickets on Offpeak Sites, Offpeak will collect and withhold from Consumers all applicable Transaction Taxes and will remit such Transaction Taxes to Client as part of the Client Payments.  “Transaction Taxes” means all applicable sales, use taxes, value added taxes (VAT), and other transactional taxes for purchases of Tickets.  Client is responsible for filing all returns and remitting all taxes and other governmental charges in connection with the sale of Tickets (including all Transaction Taxes, whether Offpeak collected the Consumer payment or Client collected the Consumer payment directly) and any payments accrued or received by Client for sale of Tickets, and Client agrees to fully indemnify, hold harmless and defend Offpeak and its Affiliates and contractors from all liabilities related to taxes and other governmental charges. Client also agrees to fully comply with all applicable laws and to timely file and remit all taxes and other charges to the appropriate tax or other authorities.  Offpeak further may be legally required to report the Client Payments and other payments made to Client to tax or other governmental authorities under applicable law.
  4. Chargebacks and Fraudulent Charges.
  1. Handling of Chargebacks. In the event a Consumer who purchased Tickets initiates a Chargeback, Client agrees that Offpeak will deduct the full amount of the Chargeback, as well as any associated fees, fines, or penalties, from Consumer Payments for the next Client Payment due to Client.  If Client’s next Client Payment is insufficient, Client agrees to pay Offpeak the full Chargeback balance upon invoicing as set forth in Section 12a.  Offpeak agrees to use reasonable efforts to investigate and, if appropriate, challenge suspect Chargebacks.  Client agrees to use reasonable efforts, at Client’s expense, to assist Offpeak, at Offpeak’s request, in the investigation of any such suspect Chargebacks.  If Offpeak, in its sole judgment, determines that a separate agreement sufficiently protects it from a particular Chargeback, Offpeak may, in its sole discretion, waive Client’s obligation to compensate Offpeak directly.
  2. Excessive Chargebacks. If Offpeak determines that Client is incurring excessive Chargebacks, Offpeak may establish controls or conditions governing Client’s account, such as: (a) establishing new processing fees, (b) delaying payouts, (c) refusing the award of Chargebacks, or (d) terminating or suspending services.
  3. Fraudulent Charges. In the event of a Fraudulent Charge, Client agrees that Offpeak will deduct the full amount of the Fraudulent Charge, as well as any associated fees, fines, or penalties, from Consumer Payments for the next Client Payment due to Client.  If Client’s next Client Payment is insufficient, Client agrees to pay Offpeak the full balance upon invoicing as set forth in Section 12a.
  1. Refunds. All Offpeak Ticket sales are final and no refunds will be provided to Consumers for any reason.  However, if Offpeak, in its sole discretion agrees to pay a refund to a Consumer, (a) Offpeak will initiate the refund to the Consumer and cancel the Consumer’s Voucher, (b) Offpeak will not charge or retain any applicable Commission on the applicable transaction, and (c) Offpeak will not be responsible for paying any amount to the Client for such transaction, except to the extent otherwise agreed to in writing between the Client and Offpeak.  If Offpeak has already remitted Client Payments to the Client for a Ticket which has been refunded by Offpeak to the Consumer, Client agrees to reimburse Offpeak for this amount.  Offpeak reserves the right to withhold this amount from future Client Payments.

The Receiving Party will take reasonable steps, at least substantially equivalent to the steps it takes to protect its own proprietary information, but not less than reasonable care, to prevent the unauthorized duplication or use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and the disclosure of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to third parties without the Disclosing Party’s prior written consent.  The Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to the Receiving Party’s Affiliates, consultants, contractors, representatives and agents (including financial advisors, accountants and attorneys) (collectively, “Representatives”) who are acting on behalf of the Receiving Party and are bound by, or are otherwise protected by legal privilege or confidentiality and non-disclosure commitments on terms no less protective of the Confidential Information than the terms of these Terms.  If a Receiving Party is legally compelled to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, the Receiving Party shall (a) provide prompt written notice (if legally permissible) to the Disclosing Party so that the Disclosing Party can seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy, and (b) limit any such disclosure to the extent of the legal requirement, and the disclosed information will remain Confidential Information despite such disclosure.
  2. Exceptions. Confidential Information excludes information which: (a) is or becomes (through no act or omission of the Receiving Party in breach of this Agreement), generally available to the public; (b) becomes known to the Receiving Party or any of its Affiliates on a non-confidential basis through a third party who is not subject to an obligation of confidentiality with respect to that information; (c) was lawfully in the possession of the Receiving Party or any of its Affiliates prior to such disclosure; (d) is independently developed by the Receiving Party or any of its Affiliates; or (e) the Disclosing Party agrees is not confidential or may be disclosed, to the extent of that consent.

  5. Assignment. Client may not assign, transfer, delegate, or sublicense these Terms or any rights or obligations hereunder, either voluntarily or by operation of law or means of a merger, consolidation, or sale of stock or other ownership interest or other change of control or ownership, and any such purported act shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing restrictions these Terms shall benefit and be binding upon each of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assignees.

The waiver by either party of any default or breach of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent default or breach. In the event that any of the provisions of these Terms shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable by a competent court or arbitrator, the remaining portions hereof shall remain in full force and effect and such provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible so as to effect the intent of the parties and shall be reformed to the extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable. When the context requires, the plural shall include the singular and the singular the plural, and any gender shall include any other gender.

Notwithstanding any contrary provision of these Terms, whenever the words “include,” “includes” or “including” or any other variation are used in these Terms, such words shall be deemed, unless the context otherwise requires, to be followed by the words “without limitation.” Section headings are only for convenience and are not part of these Terms`.
