You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Account or any other breach of security. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements. Your account should be utilized by you alone.

Reliance on Information Posted

You acknowledge that the information contained in this Site is solely for general information purposes. We make no representations or warranties of any kind, either express or implied about the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of this information. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk. This Site may include content provided by third parties, including materials provided by other users and third-party licensors. We are not responsible or liable to you or any third party for the content or accuracy of materials provided by any third parties.

Event Membership

Membership Access. Event attendees have the option of subscribing to a subscription-based membership to attend our events. Your membership with us gives you access to our events. We offer different membership packages, and they each require commitment for a set number of months. As a member, you can attend an unlimited number of our events during that set time period. The details of those membership packages can be found here. We reserve the right to modify, terminate, or otherwise amend our offered membership packages.

 

Substitution or Sharing Not Allowed. Attendance at an event as a member cannot be substituted by another person, whether from the same organisation or not. Permanent transfer of membership to a different person is not allowed without our approval in writing. Membership includes two  guest passes for new attendees each month. The attendees must never have attended an event previously.

 

Pausing Memberships. Membership cannot be paused. Your membership will expire after the time period specified in your membership package.

 

Renewal. You will be invited to renew your membership prior to its expiration. Renewal and rejoining options are shown on our website at here.  

 

Use of Membership. Your membership is personal to you. You agree not to create more than one account. Members cannot transfer or gift events to third parties, including other members. We continually update and test various aspects of the membership platform. We reserve the right to, and by using our service you agree that we may, include you in or exclude you from these tests without notice.

 

Recurring Billing. By starting your membership, you authorize us to charge you for your initial membership period and a recurring monthly membership fee at the then current rate, which may change from time to time. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges. You also authorize us to charge you any other fees you may incur in connection with your use of the Site, such as any applicable sign-up fee, taxes and cancellation or late fees, as further explained below.

 

Billing Cycle. Our membership starts on the date that you sign up for a subscription and submit payment. You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (which we may update from time to time). We will automatically bill the monthly membership fee to your payment method each month until your subscription ends or is cancelled or terminated. When you sign up and purchase your subscription, your first subscription cycle will be billed immediately. Your subscription will automatically renew each month and you will be billed on the same date each month. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing (and if we do, we’ll make adjustments to the amounts we charge, as appropriate). In the event your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your payment method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started your membership or became a paying member on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your payment method would be billed on that date. Your renewal date may change due to changes in your membership.

 

Refunds. Generally, our fees (including the monthly fee for your membership and any other fees) are nonrefundable. However, we will provide a refund to members for their current prepaid period in the following circumstances: (i) if you are canceling your subscription and request a refund within 5 days of your initial purchase or (ii) if your subscription is cancelled prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, due to your relocation, disability or death. Nevertheless, in each case we reserve the right to charge a fee to cover the cost of any services you may have used prior to your cancellation, to the extent permitted by law (such class fee charges not to exceed the cost of the subscription itself) (fees we currently charge can be found here). Any additional discounts or refunds that we may choose to provide are in our sole discretion and do not entitle you to any future discounts or refunds in the future for similar instances.

 

Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust pricing at any time. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, any price changes to your membership will take effect on your next billing cycle upon notice communicated through a posting on our website or mobile applicable or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time, such as email.

 

Payment Methods. You may edit your payment method information by logging online and editing your settings. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds or otherwise, and you do not edit your payment method information, you nonetheless will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the payment method, as it may be updated, including in the event you attempt to create a new account. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. If we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to terminate your access to our Site or any portion thereof.

 

Trials. From time to time, we may offer a trial membership that includes standard access to the our membership platform during the trial period. Unless otherwise communicated, a trial begins at the moment of sign up and ends at 11:59pm ET on the last day of the trial (for a one-week trial, this would be the same weekday of following week). Each trial membership automatically will convert to a regular monthly membership and price unless canceled by 12pm ET on the day before the last day of trial. Customers that cancel and do not convert to a regular membership may not attend events taking place after the end of the trial membership period (even if booking occurred before the end of the applicable trial period). Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, trial memberships are only available to new customers that have never had a membership account before, are not transferable, may not be combined with other offers or redeemed for cash and are void where prohibited.

 

Gifts and Promotions. From time to time, we may make available gift cards for our membership, other types of promotions, or promotional plans (including through the use of promotional codes or those provided as part of a third party promotion). The current terms that apply to gift cards can be found at this link. Promotions and promotional plans may be redeemed as described in the specifics of the promotion and may be subject to additional or different terms. Unless otherwise expressly communicated to you in connection with your redemption, promotions and promotional plans are only available to new customers that have never had a membership account before, are not transferable, can only be used once, cannot be redeemed for cash, and may not be combined with other offers and are void where prohibited. To be eligible for certain promotions, your subscription may not be on “hold”.

Digital Products

Order Confirmation. In addition to our event membership services discussed above, we may offer digital items for purchase. We will email you to confirm the placement of your order and with details concerning product delivery. In the event that there is an error in this email confirmation, it is your responsibility to inform us as soon as possible.

 

Cancellations, Refunds, & Returns. We do not offer refunds for digital products after purchase. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us, and we will do our best to remedy the situation.

 

Product Descriptions. We use our best efforts to describe and display the Site and Service as accurately and clearly as possible. Please do not accept that the Site, including a digital product purchased from the Site, is entirely accurate, current, or error-free. We might correct errors in pricing and descriptions from time to time. We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order with an incorrect price listing.

For circumstances or policies change and you can no longer attend one of our events, you can cancel your event registration and receive a full refund, less an administration fee, up to 24 hours before the date the event begins.

We reserve the right to use images, videos, and audio records taken at our conferences with your photograph and/or likeness in future marketing materials.

Legal Disputes

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND SIX DEGREES SOCIETY, INC. HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.

 

You and Six Degrees Society, Inc. agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of our Terms of Service Agreement, your use of or access to the Services, or any products or services sold or purchased through the Services, will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section.

 

Choice of Law. This Agreement is made under and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.

 

Claim Limitations. You agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Services must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.

 

Agreement to Arbitrate

 

You and Six Degrees Society, Inc. each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Six Degrees Society, Inc. relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms of Service Agreement, your use of or access to Six Degrees Society, Inc.’'s Services, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through our Services will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court in New York, New York, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.

 

The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS Arbitration ("JAMS") under its applicable rules and procedures, as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes.

Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator and not a judge or jury. You understand that arbitration procedures can be more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review in court.

 

You and we must abide by the following rules: (a) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR US MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (b) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF, (c) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (d) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (e) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (f) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and then in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.

 

With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (a) or (b) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor we will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute will be exclusively brought in state or federal court in New York, New York.

General

Changes to Agreement. This Agreement is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any substantial changes, we may notify you by sending you an email to the last email address you provided to us (if any) and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Site. Any significant changes to this Agreement will be effective 30 days after posting such notice. You are responsible for providing us with your most current email address. In the event that the last email address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the email containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice. Continued use of our Site or Services following notice of such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
