Intelligence, Inc. ("Event Intelligence" or "us" or "we") has developed and operates a service ("Service") providing web-based event booking, planning, and management tools ("Tools"). The Service enables a third party ("you" or "Subscriber") and to access and configure these Tools through an online account ("Account"). Internet users who use the Tools are referred to in this Agreement as your visitor ("Visitor" or "Visitors"). Event Intelligence will provide HTML code for you to use the Tools as an extension of your website or you can use your Tools on their own. This Agreement defines the terms and conditions for your participation in the Service as a Subscriber. In consideration of the promises set forth in this Terms of Service ("Agreement"), you and Event Intelligence agree as follows:
1. Acceptance and Enrollment as a Subscriber:
Please read this Agreement carefully. To become a Subscriber, you must fill out a completed signup form via our website. By submitting the form, and agreeing to use the Service, you indicate your acceptance of this Agreement and its terms and conditions. The Service will be initiated upon Account creation.
2. The Event Intelligence-Subscriber Relationship:
As a Subscriber, we will make available to you a series of Tools, which, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you may display as often and in as many areas on your website as you desire. Visitors will be able to access the Tools through a new browser window that opens on your own site, a direct hyperlink, or a framed link. If the new browser window is closed, your site remains open on the Visitor's computer. Since the name of the Tools will match your own company name, the Visitor will assume the website is a part of your site, not an off-site location. Further, the Tools will have links on it returning your Visitors back to your site. Visitors to your website will be able to use your interactive online Tools. However, while you are a Subscriber all email communication, confirmations, and other representations will have only your company name.
3. Our Responsibilities:
We will be responsible for providing you the information necessary to allow you to link your website to your Tools. Included with our Service is an Account which enables you to log in and configure the Tools and Service. Certain elements of the Tools and Service can be modified to your unique needs, but no guarantees are made as to the level of modification that is offered. Your client and booking information remains securely stored in your Account which resides on our servers. Never is any of your client or booking information shared with any outside parties.
4. Term and Termination of the Agreement:
The term of this Agreement is 1 year (or 2 months if trial), starting from the date your Account is created. From then on, the agreement renews itself each year for a period of 1 year with your authorization. The Agreement can be terminated by cancellation at anytime by either the Subscriber or Event Intelligence. If the Subscriber cancels this agreement for any reason, no refund will be provided under any circumstances. All sales are final. If Event Intelligence cancels this Agreement for any reason, a five (5) day notice via email will be given to the Subscriber and the Subscriber will receive a prorated refund. Event Intelligence reserves the right to refuse service to any person or company for any or no reason.
5. Design of the Online Tools:
When you become a Subscriber, you grant us a limited, non-exclusive right to use and copy the "look and feel" of your website, including your logo if applicable, for the purposes stated in this Agreement. This right continues only for as long as you remain a Subscriber. Thereafter, neither party has the right to use any graphic images, logos, service marks, and related images or copy belonging to the other party.
6. Usage Limitations and Transferability:
An Account can only be used with a single company or entity, the company or entity of the Subscriber. Accounts can not, under any circumstances, be shared among or used by multiple companies. A Subscriber is permitted to integrate their Tools into multiple websites and URLs, provided that such websites and URLs are all owned by the Subscriber. The Subscriber is not permitted to rent, lease, license, sell, re-sell, give away all or any part of their Service. Usage of the Account is limited to the Subscriber and Subscriber's prospective and booked clients only. The Subscriber may not allow access to their Account by any other company, entity, or prospective or booked client of such other company or entity.
7. Licenses and Use of Marks:
We grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to use our logos, trade names, trademarks, service marks and similar identifying material relating to us (collectively, the "Marks") solely as related to promotion of the Tools. You may use the Marks on your website only while you are participating as a Subscriber. You may not alter, modify, or change the Marks in any way. You are only entitled to use the Marks as set forth in this Agreement while you are a Subscriber in good standing. We expressly reserve all right, title and interest in the Marks not expressly granted in this Agreement. Your license to use the Marks may be revoked at any time for any reason by us. Nothing in this agreement provides for the transfer of ownership in any Event Intelligence intellectual property right.
You grant to us a limited, non-exclusive, license to utilize your trade names, trademarks, and service marks to advertise, market, promote, and publicize in any manner our rights hereunder and the Service. This license and the use of Marks by both parties shall terminate upon the termination of this Agreement. Event Intelligence reserves the right to display a copyright link at the bottom of every online Tool.

You agree to receive all official emails from Event Intelligence and understand that as part of a subscription service, you can not opt-out of receiving such messages which are deemed vital to the Event Intelligence-Subscriber relationship.
13. Account Access and Ownership
A Subscriber may request that their current Account name and password be sent via electronic mail to the email address listed on the Account. The Subscriber may execute this process automatically by using the password lookup function on the Account login page.
In the event that the Subscriber is no longer able to access the email address listed on their Account (and provided the ownership of the Account is not in dispute), the Subscriber may contact Event Intelligence to request that their password be reset. As a means to verify the Subscriber’s identity, Event Intelligence may ask the Subscriber to verify the last 4 digits and/or provide a facsimile of the credit card used to pay for the current term of Service (or most recent term in the event that the Account is expired). Event Intelligence is under no obligation to reset the password if it is believed that the identity of the Subscriber cannot be adequately verified.
In the event that the ownership of an Account is disputed by any individual, regardless of whether that individual is currently listed as a contact on the Account, Event Intelligence may, at its sole discretion, suspend access to the Account immediately for all parties until such time that ownership of the business listed on the Account prior to the dispute can be verified. Supporting documentation must be provided, listing the owner(s) of the business before Account access will be reinstated. After business ownership has been established and verified, and unless otherwise directed by a court of law, the Account will be reinstated with a new password and all owners of the business (for which Event Intelligence has an active email address) will be sent an email containing the new login credentials for the Account. A copy of this message will be sent to the email address listed on the Account.
