This RunSignUp Event and Donation Website Contract (the "Agreement") is entered into between RunSignUp, Inc., a Delaware corporation doing business as RunSignup, BikeSignup, TriSignup, SkiSignup, PaddleSignup, AdventureSignup, GiveSignup, and SwimSignup (collectively, "RunSignup", "we" or "us") at 300 Mill Street, Suite 200, Moorestown, NJ 08057, and the sponsoring organization, individual, or commercial, non-profit or government entity which is described in Section 1 below (collectively, the" Owner", "you" or "your"). RunSignUp agrees to provide ticketing and event registration and related services for your event (the “Event”) and/or provide a website to process donations for your organization (“Donation Website”), subject to the following terms and conditions:
Overview and Scope. Our online Event and Donation Website management platform enables the provision of various technology-based services for Event directors, sponsoring organizations, Event participants, and other individuals and entities managing events, activities and charitable donations. This Agreement is entered into between RunSignUp and the Owner of the Event, charity or 501(c)3 which/who is duly authorized to receive the registration fees, donations, ticket fees and any and all other payments which are processed and collected for the Event or through the use of our Services (collectively, the “Event and Donation Proceeds”). You represent that you are the Owner or its authorized representative and have the requisite authority to enter into this Agreement and receive the Event & Donation Proceeds.
Services. Our proprietary, web-based system provides you with the capability to facilitate online registration and ticketing, maintain a website for soliciting donations, collect associated payments and/or donations, manage promotions and enable other technology and services (collectively, the "Services", which includes the software and related technology which we make remotely available for your access and use on a "SaaS" basis via the web) in connection with your Event or Donation Website. The Services are made available to you through one of our websites, including runsignup.com, bikesignup.com, trisignup.com, skisignup.com, paddlesignup.com, adventuresignup.com, givesignup.com and swimsignup.com, or through a mobile application or other cloud-based platform, which we may make available for your use (collectively, a "Site").
Credit Card Information. In connection with the handling of credit card information in the provision of our Services, we have undergone a rigorous independent data security assessment to earn a designation as a Level 1 "PCI-DSS" ("Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard") Service Provider. To the extent that we handle credit card information for your Event and Donation Website, we agree to maintain Level 1 PCI-DSS compliance during the term of this Agreement and to retain an independent, qualified firm to validate compliance on at least an annual basis. To the extent applicable, RunSignUp agrees to provide you with proof of compliance on written request no more frequently than annually. RunSignUp acknowledges that, when credit card information is used for transactions on our Site, we will employ measures designed to protect cardholder data under the requirements listed in the PCI-DSS once it has been encrypted by our SSL certificate and transmitted to our servers. We do not store any user credit card information on our servers, but pass that directly to a third party payment gateway for processing. For those users who request to have their credit card data stored, we use a secure online credit card "vault" service. We will confirm that any third party payment gateways or third party vault services we use will have also been designated as PCI Level 1 compliant.
License, Restrictions and Intellectual Property Rights.

We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to you to use the Services on a time-bounded basis for the subscription period specified in the "Term and Termination" provision below.

Payments. We offer four payment alternatives – Quick Start Direct Deposit, Quick Start Check Payment, Advanced Direct Deposit and Advanced Check Payment. You will qualify for either a Quick Start or Advanced Payment account based upon the amount of information you provide when you set up your payment account and how you would like to be paid.
Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Payment Account: Opening a payment account requires us to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. When a payment account is opened, we will ask for certain Owner Data (as defined in Section 5 above) and you agree to provide such information. We may ask you for additional information now or in the future if your payment processing increases or if we are unable to verify your identity or the identify or tax ID number for the entity that is receiving Event proceeds.
i. RunSignUp uses Vantiv (now WorldPay) for payment processing for Advanced payment accounts.
a) In order for you to use Vantiv’s payment processing services you must be approved as a sub- merchant by RunSignUp and Vantiv by submitting the required Owner Data which may vary based on your processing volume. By accepting this Agreement and using an Advanced Payment Account you also agree to the Vantiv Sub-Merchant contract - (https://runsignup.com/VantivContract).
b) We allow you to choose direct deposit or check payments from the credit card payment gateway to your account on a Weekly, Monthly or Daily basis (Daily Payments must be approved by RunSignUp). Weekly is the default option. Weekly Check payments are only processed if Event and Donation Proceeds of at least $1,000 are owed. If the total owed does not reach $1,000, we will send a check for Event and Donation Proceeds collected within 6 business days of the completion of your Event. Direct Deposit weekly payments are not subject to the $1,000 minimum. Payments will be made on this basis with the exception of funds held to establish a refund reserve when required. The refund reserve will be paid to you via your selected payment method after the conclusion of your Event. All registration fees, except for Processing Fees are your exclusive property.
c) Event Proceeds will be paid out at 70% of transactions processed for the Event until the Event is completed. When the Event is completed the 30% of transactions dollars held will be paid in the week following the completion of the Event.
ii. We may now and in the future use companies other than Vantiv (now WorldPay) for payment processing. You agree and provide consent that if we decide to use another payment processing company that we may move your payment account or set up another similar payment account with any other payment processing company providing services similar to Vantiv (Now WorldPay) for the processing and payment of Event and Donation Proceeds as long as there are no other material changes in the Services provided under this contract.
iii. Refunds - You shall exclusively and directly be liable for and handle refunds. If RunSignUp, for any reason has to handle refunds or chargebacks on your behalf You will be liable to RunSignUp for the proceeds refunded to participants for Your Event as well as any applicable RunSignUp processing fees for the original transaction and refund and any fees from the credit card brands or processors to process the chargebacks. RunSignUp has a service that helps you process refunds, these refunds come out of your reserve funds and will not be processed if the reserve funds do not meet the refund requests. Additional funds can be added to the refund reserve as needed.
iv. RunSignUp reserves the right to withhold payments from an Event or Event owner or Donation Website owner if there are complaints from registrants or repeated chargebacks or if a Event has been cancelled and there are not sufficient funds available for refunds. RunSignUp may require a holdback from some Events based on the newness of the Event or newness of the registration history with RunSignUp or based on RunSignUp’s internal underwriting review of the creditworthiness of the Owner Data submitted for the Event or Donation Website Payment Account. RunSignUp reserves the right to withhold and deduct payment from a Event or Event Owner or Donation Website Owner for chargebacks that are processed against the Event or Donation Website. RunSignUp will release any Event holdbacks after an Event has been completed and it is determined that there are no additional refunds or chargebacks to be processed for that Event.
Payment of Event or Donation Website Proceeds. In connection with our collection of fees in the provision of our Services, you agree as follows: (i) we may send Event or Donation Website Proceeds collected by us, minus our Processing Fees, directly to you via the methods identified in Payments above and you warrant that you are an authorized representative of the Owner in this regard and (ii) you shall indemnify us for any claims, loss or expenses (including attorney's fees) brought by the Owner or any other individual, entity or organization that relates to or arises from our payment of funds to you (including a claim that we wrongfully paid such funds to you and should have paid a different individual, entity or organization).
