In such case, “you” and “your” will refer to that entity as well as yourself.

The Smart Trakker Web Platform (hereinafter referred to as “Web Platform”) provides a way for organizations and group administrators to: manage member information and activities, create and send invoices and collect dues, store documents, communicate via email, create forms for event registration, raise funds for charities and personal causes, and report on all transactions.
1.4 Customer Content
The Web Platform provides the ability for Customers to input Customer Content in the form of text, HTML, images, field labels and inquiries to collect data from the Consumer. In response to Customer requests, the Web Platform allows Consumers to input Consumer Content in the form of text, images and photos. Customer Content and Consumer Content are hereinafter referred to “Content”. (See Section 12 for more information)
1.5 Web Platform
The Web Platform does not record or retain any Credit Card Information (number, date, security code, name, company, address, zip code). Utilizing Stripe’s token-based API, the Integrated Platform allows ST to provide back-end management and a seamless user experience without ever coming in contact with sensitive Credit Card Information. The Web Platform achieves this by passing the Credit Card Information from the payer’s computer or mobile device directly to the Stripe processor. Therefore, the Policy does not apply to Customer or Consumer Credit Card Information collected through the Web Platform.
2.1 Stripe: Customer must maintain a valid Stripe account to process credit card payments through the Web Platform. ST cannot guarantee you will be approved by Stripe.
(a) ST does not accept any responsibility for any and all payment arrangements between Customer and Consumer.

(b) Additional Stripe Processor may not be accessed by any entity other than the ST Customer who has purchased an annual ST subscription and agreed to the terms of this agreement.
(c) Ownership of the Customer Stripe Account is required. Appropriate proof may be requested by Smart Trakker. Customers unable to comply with request of proof of Stripe Account ownership may result in Customer ST Account closure.
2.3 Customer Refund Policies: ST provides a platform where Consumers must be provided full disclosure of the terms of their purchase by the Customer and where those terms meet certain minimum requirements. Customer Refund Policies are the sole responsibility of the Customer. The below is a suggested guideline only and in no way implies any responsibility by ST.
(a) Refund policies must be posted on the applicable event page;
(b) “No refund” policies are permissible, but must be clearly identified as such and must otherwise comply with these minimum requirements;
(c) Refund policies (including “no refund” policies) must provide for a refund or other make good for failure to provide the advertised services (e.g., event or activity cancellation);
(d) Refund policies must include specific instructions on how to obtain a refund, including how, when and where to direct a refund request;
(e) Refund policies must set out a specific time frame within which refund requests will be responded to, which should not exceed five (5) business days for a first response;
(f) Refund policies must be in accordance with all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations;
(g) Refund policies may not be changed with respect to purchases made prior to the date of such change and its posting to the applicable event page;
(h) Refund policies must otherwise be fair and reasonable.
2.4 No Insurance or Guarantee: Refund Policy Requirements are not intended to be and do not constitute an offer to insure the performance of or to guarantee the performance of any Customer and not a guarantee by ST that refunds will be issued in any given situation.

6.1 To the extent permitted by applicable laws, the Web Platform and Admin Services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. ST expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, title, non-infringement and fitness for a particular purpose. For example, ST makes no warranty that (a) the Web Platform (or any portion of the Web Platform ) will meet your requirements or expectations; (b) the Web Platform will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; or (c) the results that may be obtained from the use of the Web Platform will be accurate or reliable.

6.3 Consumers understand and agree that some events may carry inherent risk, and by participating in those events, Consumers choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some events may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and Consumers freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those events.
6.4 The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, will be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
