Accepting these terms
1.1 . Sportztrip is a 3rd party booking agency that has a news service.
These Terms apply to your event that we are marketing .The material, including without limitation information, data, text, editorial content, design elements, look and feel, formatting, graphics, images, photographs, videos, music, sounds and other content contained in or delivered via the Services or otherwise made available by Sportztrip in connection with the Services is the "Site Content" (or "Content"). Any material (including the foregoing categories) that you contribute, provide, post or make available using the Services is "Your Content."
2.When these Terms use the term "Organiser," we mean event creators using the Services to create events displayed on the Services for consumers using our Services (a) to consume information about or attend Events ("Consumers"), or (b) for any other reason. Organisers, Consumers and third parties using our Services are all referred to in these Terms collectively as "Users," "you" or "your."
When these Terms use the term "Sportztrip," "we," "us," or "our," that refers to Sportztrip, Inc. and its affiliates, and subsidiaries, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, agents, partners and employees.:
• Sportztrip Payment Processing is located in Australia and is subject to Australian consumer law.
3. What the "Terms of Service" Means. These Terms of Service and the other documents referenced in them (including in Section 1.3 above) comprise Sportztrip's "Terms." These Terms are a legally binding agreement between you and Sportztrip governing your access to and use of the Services and setting out your rights and responsibilities when you use the Services. By using any of our Services (including browsing a Site), you are agreeing to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, please do not use or access the Services. If you will be using the Services on behalf of an entity (such as on behalf of your employer), you agree to these Terms on behalf of that entity and its affiliates and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such case, "you" and "your" will refer to that entity as well as yourself.
4. Sportztrip's Services and Role
4.1. Sportzrip’s Services provide a simple and quick means for Organisers to create sporting events. These events can be social, professional racing or club gatherings. It is the event organisers responsibility to have all licences, insurances, land usepermissions and any other form of permission required by the local government to hold the event in a legal and safe manner. Sportztrip is in no way responsible for any liabilities or penalties caused by an event organiser not following proper process for approvals. Sportztrip is not liable for any insurance claims these are all the responsibility of the event organiser.
It is not Sportztrip responsibility to ensure the event is legal because we are simply marketing the tickets on behalf of the event organiser. The event organiser agrees that Sportztrip has no legal responsibility if the event receives any form of penalty or there is an injury claim or legal claim of any type that is caused as a result of the event.
4.2 Sportztrip is not the creator, organiser or owner of the events listed on the Services. Rather, Sportztrip provides its Services, which allow Organisers to manage ticketing and registration and promote their events. The Organiser is solely responsible for ensuring that any page displaying an event on the Services (and the event itself) meet all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that the goods and services described on the event page are delivered as described and in an accurate satisfactory manner. The Organiser of a paid event selects the payment processing method for its event as more fully described in the Merchant Agreement. Consumers must use whatever payment processing method the Organiser selects. If the Organiser selects a payment processing method that uses a third party to process the payment, then neither Sportztrip nor any of its payment processing partners processes the transaction but we transmit the Consumer's payment details to the Organiser's designated payment provider. If an Organiser uses Sportztrip Payment Processing (as defined in the Merchant Agreement), Sportztrip also acts as the Organiser's limited agent solely for the purpose of using our third party payment service providers to collect payments made by Consumers on the Services and passing such payments to the Organiser.
5.. Privacy and Consumer Information
If you are an Organiser, you represent, warrant and agree that (a) you will at all times comply with all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations with respect to information you collect from (or receive about) consumers, and (b) you will at all times comply with any applicable policies posted on the Services with respect to information you collect from (or receive about) consumers.
6. Term; Termination
6.1 These Terms apply to you as soon as you access the Services by any means and continue in effect until they are terminated. There may come a time where either you or Sportztrip decides it's best to part ways as described in Sections 4.2 or 4.3 below. When that happens, these Terms will generally no longer apply. However, as described in Section 4.4, certain provisions will always remain applicable to both you and Sportztrip.
6.2 Sportztrip may terminate your right to use the Services at any time (a) if you violate or breach these Terms; (b) if you misuse or abuse the Services, or use the Services in a way not intended or permitted by Sportztrip; or (c) if allowing you to access and use the Services would violate any applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations or would expose Sportztrip to legal liability. Sportztrip may choose to stop offering the Services, or any particular portion of the Service, or modify or replace any aspect of the Service, at any time. We will use reasonable efforts to provide you with notice of our termination of your access to the Services, where, in Sportztrip's sole discretion, failure to do so would materially prejudice you. You agree that Sportztrip will not be liable to you or any third-party as a result of its termination of your right to use or otherwise access the Services.
6.3 Except to the extent you have agreed otherwise in a separate written agreement between you and Sportztrip, you may terminate your access to the Services and the general applicability of Terms by deleting your account. If you are a Consumer using the Services without a registered account, your only option for these Terms to no longer apply is to stop accessing the Services indefinitely. So long as you continue to access the Services, even without an account, these Terms remain in effect. If there is a separate agreement between you and Sportztrip governing your use of the Services and that agreement terminates or expires, these Terms (as unmodified by such agreement) will govern your use of the Services after such termination or expiration.
6.4 All provisions of these Terms that by their nature should survive termination of these Terms will survive (including, without limitation, all limitations on liability, releases, indemnification obligations, disclaimers of warranties, agreements to arbitrate, choices of law and judicial forum and intellectual property protections and licences).
7. Export Controls and Restricted Countries
Sportztrip complies with certain export controls and economic sanctions laws. All Users, regardless of your or the event's location should familiarize yourself with these restrictions. In accepting these Terms you represent and warrant that: (a) you are not located in, and you are not a national or resident of, any country to which the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, Australia or Canada has embargoed goods and/or services of the same type as the Services, including without limitation, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria or the Crimea region of Ukraine; and (b) you are not a person or entity, or owned by, under the control of, or affiliated with, a person or entity (i) that appears on the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control's Specially Designated Nationals List, Foreign Sanctions Evaders List or Palestinian Legislative Council List; the U.S. Department of State's Terrorist Exclusion List; the Bureau of Industry and Security's Denied Persons, Entity or Unverified List; the Consolidated List of Targets published by the U.K. HM Treasury; the Consolidated List published by the A.U. Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; (ii) that is subject to sanctions in any other country; or (iii) that is engaged in the design, development or production of nuclear, biological or chemical weapons, missiles or unmanned aerial vehicles.
8. Release and Indemnification
This is where you agree to cover Sportztrip if you use the Service in a way that causes Sportztrip to be the subject of a legal matter, or to face other claims or expenses, or as otherwise set forth herein, to the extent permitted by applicable laws.
8.1 Release. You hereby agree to release Sportztrip from all damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses, liabilities, costs and expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of a dispute between you and a third party (including other Users) in connection with the Services or any event listed on the Services. In addition, you waive any applicable law or statute, which says, in substance: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE RELEASED PARTY."
8.2 Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Sportztrip and each of its and their respective officers, directors, agents, co-branders, licensors, payment processing partners, other partners and employees, harmless from any and all damage (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), loss, liability, cost and expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' and accounting fees) resulting from any claim, demand, suit, proceeding (whether before an arbitrator, court, mediator or otherwise) or investigation made by any third party (each a "Claim") relating to or arising out of: (a) your breach of these Terms (including any terms or agreements or policies incorporated into these Terms); (b) your use of the Services in violation of these Terms or other policies we post or make available; (c) your breach of any applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule or regulation or the rights of any third party; (d) Sportztrip’s collection and remission of taxes; and (e) if you are an Organiser, your events (including where Sportztrip has provided Services with respect to those events), provided that in the case of (e) this indemnification will not apply to the extent that the Claim arises out of Sportztrip's gross negligence or willful misconduct. Sportztrip will provide notice to you of any such Claim, provided that the failure or delay by Sportztrip in providing such notice will not limit your obligations hereunder except to the extent you are materially prejudiced by such failure. Also, in certain circumstances, Sportztrip may choose to handle the Claim ourselves, in which case you agree to cooperate with Sportztrip in any way we request.
9. Disclaimer of Warranties and Assumption of Risks by You
We strive to provide Services in the way you need them, but there are some things it is important for you to understand that we cannot promise.
To the extent permitted by applicable laws, the Services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. Sportztrip expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, title, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose. For example, Sportztrip makes no warranty that (a) the Services (or any portion of the Services) will meet your requirements or expectations; (b) the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; or (c) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Services will be accurate or reliable.
You acknowledge that Sportztrip has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety, accuracy or legality of any event or Content associated with an event, the truth or accuracy of any information provided by Users (including the Consumer's personal information shared with Organisers in connection with events) or the ability of any User to perform or actually complete a transaction. Sportztrip has no responsibility to you for, and hereby disclaims all liability arising from, the acts or omissions of any third parties that Sportztrip requires to provide the Services, that an Organiser chooses to assist with an event, or that you choose to contract with when using the Services.
You understand and agree that some events may carry inherent risk, and by participating in those events, you choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some events may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those events.
The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, will be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
10. Limitation of Liability
10.1 To the extent permitted by applicable laws, or as otherwise set forth herein, Sportztrip and any person or entity associated with Sportztrip's provision of the Services (e.g., an affiliate, vendor, strategic partner or employee) ("Associated Parties"), will not be liable to you or any third party, for: (a) any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, opportunity costs, intangible losses, or the cost of substitute services (even if Sportztrip has been advised of the possibility of such damages); or (b) Your Content. In addition, other than the obligation of Sportztrip to pay out Event Registration Fees in certain circumstances to certain organisers under the Merchant Agreement, and only in accordance with the terms therein, the maximum aggregate liability of Sportztrip or Associated Parties is limited to the following:
(i) for Organisers of events with paid tickets, and subject to the terms of the Merchant Agreement, the fees (net of Sportztrip Payment Processing Fees) that you paid us in the three (3) month period immediately preceding the circumstances giving rise to your claim; and
10.2 Nothing in these Terms is intended to exclude or limit any condition, warranty, right or liability which may not be lawfully excluded or limited. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or conditions or the limitation or exclusion of liability for loss or damage caused by willful acts, negligence, breach of contract or breach of implied terms, or incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, only those liability and other limitations which are lawful in your jurisdiction (if any) will apply to you and our liability is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
11. IMPORTANT: BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS OR WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES WILL BE SETTLED BY BINDING ARBITRATION OR IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT (TO THE EXTENT THE CLAIM QUALIFIES) AND WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS ONLY; YOU AGREE THAT CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATIONS AND CIVIL ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND ANY RIGHTS TO BRING SUCH ACTIONS ARE WAIVED BY EACH PARTY.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
(a) Contact Us First.
If you have a question or concern about the Services, please contact us first by email. email@example.com. Our customer support team will try to answer your question or resolve your concern.
(b) Agreement to Arbitrate.
In the unlikely event that our customer support team is unable to resolve your concerns, the parties (you and we) each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims under these Terms, with respect to the Services, or related to our relationship through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction, and only on an individual basis. In no event may either we or you seek to resolve a dispute with the other as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. Binding arbitration is subject to very limited review. Only the arbitrator appointed pursuant to this Section, and not any federal, state or local court will have the authority to resolve any dispute or claim relating to this Section including, without limitation, regarding the scope, enforceability and arbitrability of these Terms. This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms. These Terms evidence a transaction in interstate commerce and the interpretation and enforcement of this Section 9 is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding the choice of law set forth in Section 9(h) below.
(c) Scope of Agreement.
This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted as to legal disputes between you and us. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms and/or your use of the Services.
(e) No Class Actions.
YOU AND SPORTZTRIP AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS, MAY NOT PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING AND MAY ONLY PROVIDE RELIEF IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM.
(f) Notice of Dispute.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Sportztrip must be addressed to the following address ("Notice Address") and must be sent by certified mail: Sportztrip, Inc. Legal Department P.o box 785, Bulimba .Queensland. Australia 4171.
Notice to you will be addressed to a mailing, home or payment address currently on record with Sportztrip and must be sent by certified mail. If Sportztrip has no records of such physical address, such notice may be delivered to your Sportztrip account email address. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Sportztrip and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Sportztrip may commence an arbitration proceeding.
(g) Arbitration Proceedings.
The arbitration will be governed by Australian of Arbitration Proceedings..
(i) Costs of Arbitration; Legal Fees.
Payment of Legal Fees. Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own attorneys' fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party's request, the arbitrator will award such prevailing party the reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use) Sportztrip will not seek to recover its attorneys' fees and expenses in an arbitration initiated by you. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of attorneys' fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
(j) Future Changes.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and Sportztrip agree that if Sportztrip makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) Sportztrip will provide you with notice of such change and you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision as unmodified by such rejected change.
(k) Special Severability.
In the event that any provisions of this Section 9 are found to be invalid or unenforceable for any dispute or claim, then, the entirety of this Section 9 will be null and void with respect to such dispute or claim and Section 23 will apply in lieu of this Section 9.
(l) Opt Out.
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration or class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending (from the email address we associate with you as a User) written notice of your decision to opt-out to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line, "ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of your first use of the Services or your agreement to these Terms (whichever is later); otherwise, you will be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. Note that if you opt out of these arbitration provisions, Sportztrip also will not be bound by them.

Other company, product and service names used in connection with the Services may be trademarks or service marks owned by third parties (the "Third Party Trademarks," and, collectively with Sportztrip Trademarks, the "Trademarks").

All such sub-domains are the sole property of Sportztrip and we reserve the right to determine the appearance, design, functionality and all other aspects of such sub-domains. In the event Sportztrip provides you with a sub-domain, your right to use such sub-domain will continue only for so long as your event is actively selling on the Services and you are in compliance with the Terms, including without limitation, these Terms of Service. If Sportztrip terminates your right to use a sub-domain for any other reason, it will provide you with a new sub-domain.
13. Licences and Permits Organisers Must Obtain
If you are an Organiser, without limiting the generality of any representations or warranties provided elsewhere in these Terms of Service, you represent and warrant to us that:
(a) You and your affiliates will obtain, prior to the start of ticket sales, all applicable licences, permits, and authorizations (individually and collectively, "Licensure") with respect to events hosted by you or your affiliates on the Services. Licensure includes but is not limited to property operation permits and fire marshal permits;
(b) You and your affiliates will comply, and will ensure that the venues for each event hosted by you or your affiliates on the Services will comply, with all applicable laws, regulations, rules and ordinances;
(c) You will only request that Sportztrip offer tickets to an event after you have obtained any specific Licensures for such event, including, but not limited to, any state, county, municipal or other local authority's authorization of the event, traffic engineering authorizations, fire department inspection reports, authorization to receive minors (if applicable), sanitary authorization (if applicable), and any other potential applicable authorization; and (d) you and your affiliates will maintain in force throughout the term of access to the Service the applicable Licensure for organiser to promote, produce, sponsor host and sell tickets for all events hosted by you or your affiliates on the Services

You agree to provide evidence of Licensure and related information prior to offering tickets or registrations for events on the Site and promptly upon the reasonable request of Sportztrip from time to time.
14. Your Rights to Submit a Copyright Takedown Notice
If you are a copyright owner or an agent of a copyright owner and you believe that any content on the Sites infringes your copyrights, you may submit a notice to email@example.com
15. Scraping or Commercial Use of Site Content is Prohibited
The Site Content is not intended for your commercial use. You have no right to use, and agree not to use, any Site Content for your own commercial purposes. You have no right to, and agree not to scrape, crawl, or employ any automated means to extract data from the Site(s).
16. Fees and Refunds.
16.1 Fees That We Charge. Creating an account, listing an event and accessing the Services are free. However, we charge a 10% commission when we sell paid tickets or registrations. These fees may vary based on individual agreements between Sportztrip and certain Organisers. Organisers ultimately determine whether these fees will be passed along to Consumers and shown as "Fees" on the applicable event page or absorbed into the ticket or registration price and paid by the Organiser out of ticket and registration gross proceeds. The fees charged to Consumers may include certain other charges, including without limitation, facility fees, royalties, taxes, processing fees and fulfillment fees. Therefore, the fees paid by Consumers for an event are not necessarily the same as those charged by Sportztrip to the applicable Organiser or the standard fees described on the Services to Organisers. In addition, certain fees are meant, on average, to defray certain costs incurred by Sportztrip, but may in some cases include an element of profit and in some cases include an element of loss. Sportztrip does not control (and thus cannot disclose) fees levied by your bank and/or credit card company, including fees for purchasing tickets and registrations in foreign currencies or from foreign persons. Be sure to check with your bank or credit card company prior to engaging in a transaction to understand all applicable fees, credit card surcharges and currency conversion rates.
16.2 Refunds. Because all transactions are between an Organiser and its respective attendees, Sportztrip asks that all Consumers contact the applicable Organiser of their event with any refund request.
(a) If you are a Consumer, you acknowledge that should you receive a refund for your ticket, you will discard any ticket that we or any Organiser has delivered, and will not use it (or any copy of it) to attend the event. Violation of the foregoing constitutes fraud. You acknowledge that the applicable procedure to check the validity of the ticket must always be followed. Sportztrip will not be held liable under any circumstances for any costs arisen from non-compliance by Organisers with applicable procedures that must be implemented by Organisers to check validity of tickets. Sportztrip will not be held liable under any circumstances for costs and/or damage associated with tickets arisen from situations with fraud and/or for damage associated with the purchase of the ticket through non-official means, such as third parties.
(b) If you are an Organiser, you acknowledge that the applicable procedure to check the validity of the ticket must always be followed. Sportztrip will not be held liable under any circumstances for any costs arisen from non-compliance by Organisers with applicable procedures that must be implemented by Organisers to check validity of tickets. Sportztrip will not be held liable under any circumstances for costs and/or damage associated with tickets arisen from situations with fraud and/or for damage associated with the purchase of the ticket through non-official means, such as third parties.
