4. COST / SERVICEFEE

The Fees for using the SPONSORMATCH platform are indicated on the SPONSORMATH Site. (https://sponsormatch.eu/en/pricing) .

For Sponsors, the use and consulting of the SPONSORMATCH platform is totally free, except when the Sponsor chooses to buy a sponsor package from the Organiser through the Platform and executes the payment via the chosen payment method. In that case we have an actual confirmation that a sponsorpackage has been bought by the Sponsor and SPONSORMATCH will send a confirmation of the agreement and an invoice by email which will be obliged to the TAC of SPONSORMATCH (see point 5.4.b). The Sponsor agrees by executing the payment that his address, contact, billing information and other details they provide in their account settings during the registration may be used by SPONSORMATCH to automatically generate an agreement and invoicing by SPONSORMATCH in name of the Sponsor as well as other electronic communications. Therefore the payment needs to be executed fully. If a payment is not fully executed by f.i. a technical defect, the Sponsor/Buyer still needs to execute this payment towards the Organiser if the corresponding agreement or confirmation was sent out electronically towards the Organiser.

For Organisers there are different options to obtain the use of SPONSORMATCH. The basic online package of the Services of SPONSORMATCH is free to use. Next to the free version SPONSORMATCH offers also a few paid service subscriptions with extra user features attached to a their account. These paid subcriptions can be consulted via https://sponsormatch.eu/en/pricing. If an Organiser chooses and confirms to SPONSORMATCH to subscribe to a paid service subscription with extra user options, the Organiser agrees that SPONSORMATCH will invoice the Organiser for these Services periodically according to the formula/subscription (yearly, monthly or one fixed amount) chosen by the Organiser. (see also Confirmation/Payment authorisation point 5.4.b.)

5. PAYMENT METHODS

5.1 Overview

The payment processing that Organisers may elect when using the Services are "Facilitated Payment Method" or "FPM", which consists of collecting Event Registration Fees using these FPMs; the payment processing allows the Organiser, when using the Services, to receive monetary payments, made to the Organiser directly by Sponsors (via FPM) as described below.

5.2 Facilitated Payment Method

(a) Independent Relationship

When using a FPM, Organisers and Sponsors effect the applicable monetary payment transaction through the FPM service and are bound by the applicable terms of use governing the FPM service. (for more info see : https://stripe.com/be/legal)

(b) Service Fees

Organisers will collect all monies directly from Sponsors under the FPM option. By registering on the Site of SPONSORMATCH and sharing your financial (payment) information for and using the FPM option, you agree to (i) pay SPONSORMATCH all then-applicable SPONSORMATCH Service Fees (also called succesfee) and SPONSORMATCH Payment Processing Fees via Stripe.com, which are based on the number of sponsorpacks sold by you and/or the value of such sponsorpacks, and which charges are described in greater detail at https://sponsormatch.eu/en/pricing , and all additional on-site service fees, equipment lease charges, printed sponsorpack fees, and any other fees and charges of any kind payable by you to SPONSORMATCH in connection with the provision of the Services (collectively, "Service Fees"), which payments shall be due and payable upon receipt of the invoice setting forth such charges; and (ii) accept the responsibility for providing refunds to Sponsors at your own discretion. SPONSORMATCH will not be responsible or liable for, and Organiser hereby agrees to fully indemnify SPONSORMATCH and its affiliates for, refunds, errors in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds in connection with the use of the FPM option. After each sponsorpack that you have sold SPONSORMATCH will send you an invoicing by e-mail mentioning the linked online Service costs for use of the SPONSORMATCH online platform. By use of the offline services you could receive an extra invoice.

5.3 SPONSORMATCH Payment Processing

(a) Gateway; Payment Process by Stripe

When an Organiser elects to use the Gateway for the collection of Event Registration Fees, payment processing occurs directly through Stripe.com (“gatewayprovider”). Under the CCP option (credit card payment option), Stripe.com will collect all Event Registration Fees on behalf of the Organiser from Sponsors and deduct all applicable Services Fees from the Event Registration Fees collected by SPONSORMATCH, and then pass the remainder along to the Organiser within five (5) business days to the address or account, respectively, that the Organiser accurately designates on the Site of SponsorMatch, provided that the gatewayprovider and SPONSORMATCH reserves the right to withhold funds (i) at any time as the gatewayprovider or SPONSORMATCH determines to be necessary for the processing and settlement of all refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks, customer complaints, allegations of fraud, and other discrepancies and (ii) as otherwise permitted pursuant to this TAC. No payments shall be made to an Organiser from SPONSORMATCH, nor by the gatewayprovider with respect to any event that is cancelled. If payments have already been made by the gatewayprovider to an Organiser for a cancelled event, such Organiser will immediately refund all such payments upon cancellation of such event directly to the sponsors/buyers.

Payment processing services for Organisers/Sellers on SponsorMatch are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). By agreeing to the TAC of SPONSORMATCH or continuing to operate as an Organiser/Seller on SPONSORMATCH, you also agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time. As a condition of SPONSORMATCH enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide SPONSORMATCH accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize SPONSORMATCH to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe.

(b) Refunds

It is the responsibility of the Organiser to communicate its refund policy to Sponsors/Buyers and to issue refunds to Sponsors/Buyers via the Site or otherwise. If a Buyer desires to request a refund, Buyer must request the refund from the Organiser. All communications or disputes regarding refunds are between the Organiser and Buyer and SPONSORMATCH will not be responsible or liable in any way for refunds, errors in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds in connection with the Services. All communications and disputes regarding chargebacks and refunds are between the Organiser and Buyer and SPONSORMATCH will not be responsible or liable in any way for chargebacks in connection with a Buyer's use of the Services. If you are a Buyer and you wish to request a refund in connection with an event listed on the Services, you should contact the applicable Organiser directly.

SPONSORMATCH will not be responsible or liable for all communications or disputes regarding refunds between the Organiser and Buyer/Sponsor, and Organiser hereby agrees to fully indemnify SPONSORMATCH and its affiliates for, refunds, errors in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds in connection with the use of the CCP option. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that SPONSORMATCH shall have the right to force a refund of any or all sponsorpacks at any time for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if SPONSORMATCH receives complaints from a substantial number (as determined by SPONSORMATCH in its sole discretion) of Sponsors with respect to the applicable event or another event held by Organiser, or SPONSORMATCH determines in its sole discretion that Organiser has engaged in any fraudulent activity or made any misrepresentations. Further, if one or more Buyer(s) request a refund, whether due to a cancelled event or for any other reason where SPONSORMATCH would reasonably expect to lose a chargeback, SPONSORMATCH may, in its sole discretion, issue such refund to such Buyer(s), and Organiser shall then owe the amount of such refund to SPONSORMATCH.

(c) Credit Card Chargebacks

Under the CCP option, any credit card chargebacks initiated by a Buyer for any reason with respect to an event shall be charged back to the Organiser of such event. All communications and disputes regarding chargebacks are between the Organiser and Buyer, and SPONSORMATCH will not be responsible or liable in any way for, and Organiser hereby agrees to fully indemnify SPONSORMATCH and its affiliates for, chargebacks issued in the course of the use of the CCP option.

5.4 Non-exclusive Remedies

(a) Payment

In the event that Organiser fails to pay to SPONSORMATCH any amount owed pursuant to this TAC when due, such amount shall bear interest calculated from the date due until paid in full at a rate equal to the lesser of (a) ten percent (10%) per annum, and (b) the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. In the event any amounts are owed by Organiser to SPONSORMATCH under this TAC or otherwise, SPONSORMATCH may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, (i) deduct such amounts from Organiser's outstanding balance, whether for that particular event or for any other event that Organiser lists through the Services; and/or (ii) send an invoice to Organiser for such amounts to the extent Organiser's outstanding balance is insufficient to cover these costs, in which case Organiser shall pay SPONSORMATCH such invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. If payment for any amounts due to SPONSORMATCH hereunder are not made by Organiser when due, SPONSORMATCH reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without limiting its other rights and remedies, to terminate Organiser's registration for the Services (including any and all accounts that Organiser may have) and to cancel all other events listed by Organiser.

(b) Confirmation / Payment Authorisation

Upon receipt of a credit card authorisation from each individual sponsorpack purchase, SPONSORMATCH generates a confirmation message and issues a sponsoring agreement towards the buyer/sponsor. You agree to unconditionally accept, honour and fulfill all sponsoring (agreement) commitments that have been confirmed by SPONSORMATCH through the Services, and it is your responsibility to verify the Buyer's status, confirmation of the sponsoring agreement and/or any event restrictions prior to the subject event.

After each agreement through SPONSORMATCH, SPONSORMATCH will provide the invoicing and agreement related to the sponsordeal for download on the online account of the Organiser and matching Sponsor

By providing a credit card or any other payment information either during registration or at any time thereafter, each Organiser or Sponsor/Buyer warrants that such credit card or payment gateway is correct and valid, and authorize SPONSORMATCH to charge such credit card or payment gateway for amounts due under SponsorMatch invoices pursuant to the payment schedule.

For each SPONSORMATCH invoice, SPONSORMATCH will charge to the credit card or payment gateway, listed in the Organiser’s account. Organisers and Sponsors will receive a confirming email attached with the invoice and contract and hereby agree that SPONSORMATCH will use their credit card or any other fancial payment information to generate these invoices/agreements. Organisers and Sponsors are responsible for logging in and timely reviewing any SPONSORMATCH invoice for occuring errors. The Organiser also agrees by accepting these TAC that SPONSORMATCH can use their payment information for setting up an account via Stripe.com.

(c) Taxes; Withholding

You are solely responsible for determining which, if any, sales, use, amusement, value added, consumption, excise and other taxes, duties, levies and charges (collectively, "Taxes") apply to your use of the Services and you agree that it is your sole responsibility to, and that you will, collect, remit and report the correct amounts of all such Taxes to the applicable governmental authorities, even if SPONSORMATCH provides you with tax tools or tax calculators that assist you in doing so. SPONSORMATCH does not represent, warrant or guarantee that any tax tools or tax calculators provided to you will meet all tax requirements that may be applicable to you or that such tax tools or tax calculators will result in your collection or remittance of all applicable Taxes, which Taxes may vary based on the nature of your event, the nature of your tax status (individual, entity, business, consumer, etc.), your location, the location of your Attendees, credits and deductions for which you may qualify and other factors, and you hereby release SPONSORMATCH of any and all liability with respect to your use of the tax tools and/or tax calculators. None of such tax tools or tax calculators should be considered legal or tax advice. If you do collect Taxes on the Services, those Taxes will be treated like Event Registration Fees and SPONSORMATCH will pay such amounts to you at the same time as the underlying Event Registration Fees. If you use any tax tools or tax calculators that require you to input a tax registration number, you represent and warrant that such tax registration number is true and correct. SPONSORMATCH cannot give you legal or tax advice, so please be sure to check with your own tax advisor about any applicable Taxes. In the event that a governmental authority requires SPONSORMATCH to pay any Taxes attributable to your use of the Services, you agree to promptly and fully reimburse SPONSORMATCH for such Taxes upon demand and all costs, penalties, interest and expenses related thereto.

All Fees charged by SPONSORMATCH do not include any Taxes except to the extent that a Tax is expressly set forth in the applicable invoice or billing statement, and you agree to pay any Taxes that are imposed and payable on such Fees (other than those calculated based on SPONSORMATCH's net income) to SPONSORMATCH. If you are outside Belgium and even the European Union, you may be required to self-assess certain indirect Taxes on our Fees (or certain portions of our Fees) under the applicable reverse charge procedure on your indirect tax returns. To the extent that you are required to self-assess, SPONSORMATCH will use reasonable efforts to note that on your invoices.

SPONSORMATCH reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder if SPONSORMATCH believes in its discretion that it is required to do so by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule, regulation, judgment or order.
