ACCEPTABLE USAGE POLICY AND GUIDELINES

Organizer Guidelines

Thanks for using EventSum and we love helping all the Event Organizers to turn their Group Social Payments into reality. Here are some of the basics that would be good to read before you start creating your Events on our mobile application. These basics provide all the guidelines for Organizers, including obligations and responsibilities to the Contributors. It’s important for the Event Organizers to follow these guidelines to keep your EventSum account in a good shape and standing. Please reach out to us at eventsum123@gmail.com for any clarifications.

1.Comply with our policies as defined in our Terms & Conditions

Organizers must comply with our terms of use. Before you create an Event, please read our Terms and Conditions carefully. Once you create it, we’ll assume that you’ve looked it over and you agree to all our Terms and Conditions….PERIOD.

  • Our terms of use apply to everyone who uses our mobile applications. These define our legal rights and the rights of our users.
  • Our acceptable use policy outlines how you can (and can’t) use EventSum. It contains a list of prohibited and illegal transactions. Make sure that your Event is within our acceptable usage policy in order to avoid any trouble collecting the funds.
  • Our User guidelines are the standards we ask all our users to uphold. We expect our users to treat each other with respect and help us maintain a great user base in EventSum.
  • 2.Use EventSum only for acceptable purposes.

    EventSum may not be used for illegal or otherwise prohibited activities as per the laws applicable in India. To learn more, please read our terms of use and acceptable use policy.

    3. Create an appropriate Event on the mobile application.

    When you create an Event, you’ll have the best chance of detailing what Event means and set goals or deadlines to meet and fulfill your promises to your contributors. Don’t forget that EventSum charges organizers a flat 2.3% Service Charge / Admin fees when using the ‘Withdraw’ or ‘Cancel’ options. on.

    4. Keep the lines of communication open and share the Event to your social contacts only.

    Organizers should communicate openly with their social contacts for sharing their Event. Tell Contributors to spread the word about your Event.

    5. Be honest.

    Be honest with your Contributors throughout the entire process till the Event closes and they’ll be likely to contribute to your Events in future. Intentionally deceiving your Contributors could have serious consequences… which nobody likes.

    6.Fulfill your obligations to Contributors.

    When you create an Event, you are inviting users to form a contract with you. Users who contribute to your Event accept your invitation and a contract is formed. This is a binding legal agreement between the Organizer and Contributors, and failing to uphold your end of the deal might expose you to legal action.If you make promises to Contributors, you must work diligently to fulfill them. If you are collecting money from a group for an experience, it’s your responsibility to make it happen. If you are collecting funds for a group payment purpose, make sure the purpose is met as promised. It is very important to follow through with what your Contributors expect.

    It is important to understand that if you can’t fulfill your obligations to Contributors, or don’t issue refunds to your Contributors in the case of a canceled Event, you may be subject to legal action.

    7. Work out disputes with Contributors informally.

    Typically, EventSum doesn’t get involved in disputes between Organizers and Contributors. We ask that Organizers and Contributors try their best to come to an agreement directly before reaching out to us. In the event that you can’t work out your dispute informally, you can reach out to us for help at eventsum123@gmail.com. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not be able to offer our assistance in reaching a resolution.

    Contributor Guidelines

    Thanks for contributing on EventSum. Below are a few important guidelines that all Contributors should know. If for any reason you don’t comply, we may need to refund your contribution and close your EventSum account. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please reach out to us at eventsum123@gmail.com

    Use EventSum only for acceptable purposes.

    You cannot use EventSum for illegal or otherwise prohibited activities as per the laws applicable in India.

    Understand that there are risks in every transaction.

    Contributors should understand that as with any transaction, there are risks involved when making contributions on EventSum. For example, unforeseen circumstances can arise preventing an Organizer from providing the services or group activities defined for an Event. Similarly, there may be unavoidable occurrences—such as bad weather, travel delays, or cancellations—preventing an Organizer from facilitating an event as he or she had hoped.

    We ask that Contributors try to be understanding if an Organizer is unable to carry out their Event as planned. If something goes wrong and an Event doesn’t go according to plan, try to come to a resolution with the Organizer directly. If you can’t come to an agreement, please contact us at eventsum123@gmail.com.

    Do your research.

    Sometimes, Organizers seek contributions from the public. They might be selling something, asking for funds to get a new idea off the ground, or seeking donations. If you are contributing to a public Event, do some research on the Organizer. Check out how many Events he or she has organized. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut.

    If you see something on EventSum that violates the law or any of our policies, please let us know by eventsum123@gmail.com.

    Be honest.

    Contributors must be honest in their communications with Organizers and members of the EventSum team. Please provide true and accurate information about yourself on your profiles. Organizers and members of the EventSum Team might need to get in touch with you, so it’s important to provide up-to-date and accurate contact information on the mobile application.

    Typically, EventSum doesn’t get involved in disputes between Organizers and Contributors.

    Appointment of EventSum as Limited Payment Commercial Agent for Organiser

    Each Organiser hereby appoints EventSum as the Organiser’s limited payment commercial agent solely for the purpose of accepting payment transactions from Contributors, including EventSum’s Service Charges / Admin fees.

    Each Organiser agrees that payment made by a Contributor through us, shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Organiser, and the Organiser will fulfill the agreement made between the Organiser and the Contributor as if the Organiser has received the funds directly. Each Organiser understands that as we accept payments from Contributors as the Organiser’s limited payment commercial agent and that our obligation to pay the Organiser is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Contributors. We do not guarantee payments to Organisers for amounts that have not been successfully received by us from Contributors.

    Funds received by EventSum as the Organiser's limited payment commercial agent will be placed into trust for the Organiser's benefit. We’ll arrange for the payment processor to send funds from the trust account to your “nominated bank account” as provided in the mobile application. You can provide us with your nominated bank account in Bank Details (My Wallet) settings. It will need to be a bank account in your name and in India. We’ll facilitate the transfer of funds into your nominated account within 3 business days of Event Closure or Event Withdrawal, once you have provided your nominated account, satisfied compliance checks and any other conditions for payout. EventSum will not have any responsibility to you once it has followed the process to send funds to your nominated account. It is important that you give us complete and accurate details for your nominated bank account, so that money is sent to the right place. You agree we are not responsible for money sent to the wrong place.

    In some circumstances, a Contributor may have a right to demand a cancellation, refund, or return of their payment, for example, if they pay by card they may have rights to refunds under their card agreement or by law. Regardless of the payment instrument used, a Contributor has the right to a cancellation and refund prior to the Event closing / Event deadline. The payment processor may take the amount of any cancellation, return or refund from funds paid or due to be paid to you into the trust account, and pay them back (or we may ask them to pay it to us as reimbursement if we have already paid for a refund on your behalf). If there are not sufficient funds in the trust account, we may contact you for payment by some other way. If you are unhappy with a cancellation, refund, or return, we suggest you raise the matter directly with the Contributor. In some circumstances, the law (for example, anti-money laundering laws) may prevent funds being paid by the payment processor into or out of the trust account. We will not be responsible for this unless it is due to our fault.
