Terms of Service for EngageDXB Events
Last updated:12 Jan 2020
These Terms are a legally binding agreement between you and EngageDXB governing your access to and use of the Services and setting out your rights and responsibilities when you use the Services related to the Events module (“Event Services”) of EngageDXB. By using any of our Event 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.
1. Document Definitions
When these Terms use the term "Organizer," 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. Organizers, Consumers and third parties using our Services are all referred to in these Terms collectively as "Users," "you" or "your."
2. EngageDXB's Services and Role
What We Do. EngageDXB's Services provide a simple and quick means for Organizers to create events, speaker profiles other features related to the event on the mobile application and webpages, promote those pages and events to visitors on apps or browsers, manage online for the sake of their Consumers or other Users.
EngageDXB is not the creator, organizer or owner of the events listed on the Events module of EngageDXB. Rather, EngageDXB provides its Services, which allow Organizers to manage and promote their events. The Organizer 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.
3. Privacy and User Information
If you are an Organizer, 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.
4. Term of Termination
- 4.1 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 EngageDXB 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 EngageDXB.
- 4.2 EngageDXB 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 EngageDXB; 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 EngageDXB to legal liability. EngageDXB 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 EngageDXB's sole discretion, failure to do so would materially prejudice you. You agree that EngageDXB 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.
- 4.3 Except to the extent you have agreed otherwise in a separate written agreement between you and EngageDXB, 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 EngageDXB 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.
- 4.4 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 licenses).
5. Release and Indemnification
- This is where you agree to cover EngageDXB if you use the Service in a way that causes EngageDXB 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.
- 5.1 Release. You hereby agree to release EngageDXB 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.
- 5.2 Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold EngageDXB 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; and (d) if you are an Organizer, your events (including where EngageDXB 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 EngageDXB's gross negligence or willful misconduct.
6. 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.

You acknowledge that EngageDXB 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 Organizers in connection with events) or the ability of any User to perform or actually complete a transaction. EngageDXB has no responsibility to you for, and hereby disclaims all liability arising from, the acts or omissions of any third parties that EngageDXB requires to provide the Services, that an Organizer 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.
7. Limitation of Liability
To the extent permitted by applicable laws, or as otherwise set forth herein, EngageDXB and any person or entity associated with EngageDXB'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 EngageDXB has been advised of the possibility of such damages); or (b) Your Content
