7.1. Approval. To join and showcase yourself and your services on the Site as a Speaker, you must be approved by Speakizi, in Speakizi’s sole discretion. Your agreement to these Terms, creation of an Account, or submission of an application form or similar form which we make available on the Site, does not signify Speakizi’s approval of your joining the Site as a Speaker. In order to register as a Speaker and obtain Speakizi’s approval, as well as to maintain your status as a Speaker, Speakizi may require you to provide certain personal information, documentation and materials and to meet certain requirements, and may (but is not required to) perform background checks on you, including without limitation checks of public records such as criminal background and registered sex offender checks, while these Terms are in effect. When your application to join the Site as a Speaker is approved, we will send notice of such approval to you.
7.2. Experience Page. If you are approved to join the Site as a Speaker, we will enable you to showcase and offer your services by creating a public profile on the Site through which users will be able to learn about you (“Speaker Profile”) and public page(s) on the Site, which users and visitors of the Site will be able to view, and through which Hosts will be able to learn about and order your service(s) (each such page, an “Experience Page”). In order to create an Experience Page you will be required to provide certain information about yourself, including, but not limited to, background information (such as your past public speaking experience), a description of the services you provide, the fees you charge, a clear picture of yourself and/or other relevant photos and videos of your services, and other materials we may request in order to create your Experience Page. You will be given the opportunity to review and approve your Experience Page before it becomes publicly viewable on the Site, but you will not be able to offer services on the Site, prior to approving your Experience Page.
7.4. RELATIONSHIP. IF YOU CHOOSE TO JOIN THE SITE AS A SPEAKER AND CREATE AN EXPERIENCE PAGE ON THE SITE, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SPEAKIZI IS LIMITED TO BEING A SITE USER AND AN INDEPENDENT, THIRD-PARTY CONTRACTOR, AND NOT AN EMPLOYEE, AGENT, JOINT VENTURER OR PARTNER OF SPEAKIZI, AND YOU ACT EXCLUSIVELY ON YOUR OWN BEHALF AND FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT, AND NOT ON BEHALF OF, OR FOR THE BENEFIT OF, SPEAKIZI. SPEAKIZI DOES NOT CONTROL YOUR ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR EXPERIENCE PAGES, INCLUDING YOUR PROVISION OF SERVICES TO HOSTS OR SERVICES WHICH YOU MAY ADVERTISE ON THE SITE. YOU AGREE NOT TO TAKE ANY ACTION WHICH MAY CREATE A FALSE IMPRESSION THAT YOU ARE ENDORSED OR HAVE BEEN VERIFIED BY, ARE PARTNERING WITH, OR ACTING ON BEHALF, OR FOR THE BENEFIT, OF SPEAKIZI, INCLUDING BY INAPPROPRIATELY USING ANY SITE CONTENT OR SPEAKIZI MARKS (DEFINED BELOW).
7.5. Representations. Without limiting Section _11 (User Submissions), if you join the Site as a Speaker and submit Content for the creation of a Speaker Profile and an Experience Page, you represent, warrant and undertake that doing so, offering your services through the Site, and providing those services to Hosts who book your services through the Site, does not and will not: (i) breach any agreements you have with any third party; (ii) violate any applicable laws and regulations (collectively, “Laws”); or (iii) violate the rights, including without limitation intellectual property rights, of any third party (including by plagiarizing, or otherwise copying without permission, the content of any other person or entity, or wrongly stating or implying wrongly that you are, or that you are affiliated with, a person or entity). You further agree to comply with all applicable laws in connection with your provision of your services and collection of fees, including without limitation, by paying all taxes applicable to you and your services.
7.6. Responsibility. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Speakizi, are solely responsible for your own acts and omissions and the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you have engaged or requested to participate or assist in the provision of your services. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any Booking Offers (defined below) you accept through the Site and for investigating the safety of interacting with any Site User or providing your services in connection with any Booking.
7.7. Undertakings. If you are a Speaker, you agree and undertake to do the following:
7.7.1. Best Price Guarantee. You agree to offer your services on the Site for fees which are as low as, or are lower than, the fees you charge for the same or substantially similar services for similar types and sizes of events (excluding services you provide free of charge). To the extent Speakizi receives evidence that you provide, or have provided similar services for similar event types and sizes for lower fees than, and within a year from the Event at which you provided your services and for which you were booked through the Site, you agree that Speakizi, in its sole discretion, may deduct or chargeback from you the difference between such fee amounts from amounts owed to you and credit such amount to the Host. We will notify you of such a claim in advance of deducting such amount and will provide you with an opportunity to respond. If you are a Host you acknowledge and agree that Speakizi is under no obligation to provide you with any such credit and any such deductions and credits shall be made in Speakizi’s sole discretion.
7.7.2. Responsiveness. You agree to check your Account for messages and Booking Offers you receive through Speakizi from Hosts and to respond to such messages within a reasonable amount of time, and in the case of Booking Offers, within the amount of time set forth in Section _8.1 below. You agree that to the extent you fail to do so, Speakizi may apply penalties to your account as specified below in Section _7.9.
7.7.3. Referrals. You agree to refer Hosts who may contact you outside the Site after having identified you through the use of the Site, or who have previously booked your services through the Site, as well as potential customers who, at an Event at which you have provided services, inquire about, or attempt to book, your services, to do so using the Site.
7.8. Experience Page or Speaker Profile Removal.
7.8.1. Without limiting Section _11 (User Submissions), Speakizi reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove, or disable access to, any Experience Page or Speaker Profile for any reason, including those which Speakizi, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or Speakizi’s then-current policies or guidelines, or otherwise harmful to Site Users or the Site.
7.8.2. If you are a Speaker, or if a Speaker Profile or an Experience Page has been created in your name by another person or entity (including, without limitation, an Agent, as defined below), you may request the removal of such Speaker Profile or Experience Page or transfer of the Speaker Profile or Experience Page to your control by contacting Speakizi and presenting evidence sufficient, in Speakizi’s sole discretion, to verify your identity.
7.9. Penalties. Without limitation to any rights Speakizi may have under these Terms or otherwise, if you are a Speaker, you agree that Speakizi may apply penalties to you and your Speaker Profile and Experience Page in case of your violation of these Terms or Speakizi’s policies, including, without limitation, by (i) removing or disabling your Speaker Profile or Experience Page or the ability of Hosts to contact you, access your calendar or book your services; and (ii) charging you a penalty fee determined by Speakizi in its sole discretion. The foregoing penalties and charges will be applied in Speakizi’s sole discretion and Speakers will be afforded an opportunity to present their reasons for their failure to comply with their commitments and these Terms.
8.1. Booking. When a Host offers to book a Speaker’s services for an Event (“Booking Offer“) and a Speaker accepts such Booking, and the Booking is completed on the Site, an agreement between the Speaker and the Host is created for the Speaker to perform the services at the Event and for the Host to pay the Provider Fee (defined below) all subject to these Terms. If you are a Host you agree to pay the Speaker the Provider Fee as set forth in this Agreement. A Host may rescind a Booking Offer at any time prior to acceptance of the Booking Offer by the Speaker. A Speaker will have twenty-four (24) hours to accept or reject a Booking Offer. A Booking Offer not accepted by a Speaker within such time shall be deemed rejected. Any additional terms must be determined in a Supplemental Agreement (defined below).
8.2. Provider Fee. If you are a Speaker, you may initially set the fee you charge for Bookings (“Provider Fee“). Once the Provider Fee has been set, you may only change it by submitting a request to Speakizi which will be approved and implemented (or denied) in Speakizi’s sole discretion. Once a Host requests a Booking of your services, you may not request the Host to pay a higher price than the fee set forth in your Experience Page at the time the Booking request is made, and in no case shall you request a Host to pay the Provider Fee, or any additional amount in connection with the Booking other than through the Site.
8.3. Speakizi’s Fees.
8.3.1. Speakizi charges service fees to both Hosts and Speakers (the “Service Fee”) for Bookings through the Site. Unless otherwise agreed between Speakizi and a particular Host or Speaker, the Service Fee is determined in Speakizi’s sole discretion and may vary based on the price charged by the Speaker and is subject to change at any time (but any such changes will not apply retroactively to a Booking after it is made). The Service Fee that applies to you in connection with a Booking will be displayed on the Site and will be viewable by you prior to your completion of the Booking.
8.3.2. If you are a Speaker, Speakizi will deduct the Service Fee applicable to you from your Provider Fee and you agree that Speakizi may do so. You may view the Service Fee that applies to you in your AccountDashboard.
8.3.3. If you are a Host, the Service Fee applicable to you, which may be referred to on the Site as a “Transaction Fee,” will be added to the Provider Fee that you will be required to remit to Speakizi as stated in Section 8.4 below.
8.4. Speakizi as Agent for Collection. Provider Fees shall be remitted by Hosts to Speakizi. If you are a Speaker, you hereby (i) appoint Speakizi to collect payments owed to you in connection with Bookings as your limited collection agent for the purpose of collecting Provider Fees from Hosts; and (ii) agree that collection of Provider Fees by Speakizi from a Host shall be deemed payment to you by the Host and that you will provide your services to the Host as previously agreed with the Host. Speakizi will transfer the Provider Fees (less the applicable collected by Speakizi, such as the Service Fee) to you by the means specified in your Account.
8.5. Agents. If you are a Speaker and you have an agreement with any third party, such as a contracting or booking agent (“Agent”) you are solely responsible for the payment of all required amounts to such third party by the terms of your agreement with your Agent for Bookings you enter into through the Site. Speakizi may also allow Agents to operate Experience Pages on the Site on behalf of a Speaker. In such a case, the Provider Fee for a Booking of a Speaker represented by such an Agent may be transferred to such Agent (as designated in the Speaker’s Account or otherwise designated to Speakizi pursuant to Speakizi’s instructions or the tools made available on the Site), who will be responsible for transferring the Provider Fee (less any applicable fees collected by Speakizi) to the Speaker. Such Agent may deduct a commission from the Provider Fee prior to transferring the Provider Fee to the Speaker, pursuant to the Agent’s agreement with such Speaker.
8.6. Payment terms. If you are a Host, you agree to pay the Provider Fee to the Speaker and to do so by transferring to Speakizi the amounts due and any applicable taxes according to the payment schedule listed below. If you, the Host, are required by law or otherwise, to withhold or deduct any amount from the sum payable, then the sum which you must pay, upon which the deduction or withholding is based, must be increased so that, after all deductions or withholdings, Speakizi receives a net amount equal to the amount that would have been paid if such deductions or withholdings were not required.
8.7. Payment Schedule. If you were a Host, you must pay all amounts due in connection with a Booking (“Booking Fees”) at the time the Booking is completed.
8.8. Third Party Payment Processors. Speakizi accepts and makes payments using third-party service providers such as PayPal or Stripe, as may be available by the Site (“Payment Processors”). All payments are subject to the fees charged by, and the terms and conditions of, such Payment Processors. Speakizi is not responsible for any delays in, or withholding of, payment by Payment Processors.
8.9. Set off. If you owe any amount to Speakizi, a Speaker, a Host, or other Site user, then you agree that Speakizi may deduct or withhold such amount from any amount Speakizi has collected for, or would otherwise transfer or pay to, you.
8.10. Tax Requests. You agree to comply with all of Speakizi’s requests for information and to fill out and provide Speakizi with all applicable tax forms and declarations as may be required by Speakizi to comply with its obligations under applicable law or as requested by an applicable governmental authority.
8.11. RESPONSIBILITY. SPEAKIZI IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANY SPEAKER, AGENT, OR HOST OR FOR ANY SITE USER’S COMPLIANCE WITH ANY AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THESE TERMS, OR APPLICABLE LAW. IF YOU ARE A SPEAKER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SPEAKIZI DOES NOT ACT AS YOUR CONTRACTING OR BOOKING AGENT, AND SPEAKIZI DOES NOT ENDORSE OR VERIFY THE IDENTITY OF, OR INFORMATION ABOUT OR PROVIDED BY, ANY HOST OR EVENT. IF YOU ARE A HOST, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT: (I) SPEAKIZI DOES NOT ENDORSE, CONTROL, EMPLOY, OR SUPERVISE, ANY SPEAKER, THE INFORMATION OR CONTENT PROVIDED BY THE SPEAKER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION AS PART OF THE APPLICABLE EXPERIENCE PAGE, SPEAKER PROFILE, OR THE SERVICES THE SPEAKER PROVIDES; AND (II) THE SPEAKER IS NOT AN EMPLOYEE OR AGENT OF SPEAKIZI AND IS NOT CONTRACTED BY SPEAKIZI TO PROVIDE SERVICES FOR YOUR EVENT.
8.12. Discounts. To the extent any special offers are made or discounts are offered to you by Speakizi in connection with the creation of your Account, or if you are a Host, in connection with a Booking, or which are otherwise made or offered, such offer or discount shall apply solely for the period and according to the provisions of the terms and conditions contained in or presented with such offer or discount and shall be subject to these Terms.
8.13. Not-for-Profit Activities. The Site may enable Speakers to offer services without compensation by the applicable Host. In such a case, Speakizi may elect (in its sole discretion) not to charge a Service Fee to the Host.
8.14. Supplemental Agreements. A Speaker and a Host may agree to additional terms in connection with a Booking (“Supplemental Agreement“), for example, confidentiality requirements, or any other rights or obligations to which the Speaker or the Host agree. You agree that (a) any such Supplemental Agreement shall be subject to these Terms and (b) Speakizi is not responsible for the contents of, or any party’s compliance with obligations under, any Supplemental Agreement.
8.15. Expenses. Speakizi is not responsible for any travel, per diem, or other expenses incurred by either party in connection with a Booking (“Expenses“).
8.16. User Disputes. Speakizi reserves the right to, and you agree that Speakizi may, monitor any disputes regarding a Booking or Supplemental Agreement or the subject matter thereof (and you shall update Speakizi regarding any such disputes), and, in its sole judgment, charge, deduct or return amounts received or paid by you, as necessary, in its sole discretion, to resolve the dispute.
9.1. Cancelations by Hosts. If you are a Host, you may cancel a Booking and receive a refund or partial refund of a Provider Fee only as follows and subject to these Terms:
9.2. Cancellations by a Speaker. If a Speaker cancels a Booking, Speakizi will refund the Provider Fee for the cancelled Booking to the Host. If you are a Speaker, you further agree that if you cancel a Booking, Speakizi may (i) apply penalties to your Experience Page, including without limitation, by removing or disabling your Experience Page or the ability of Hosts to contact, you access your calendar or book your services; and (ii) charge you a cancellation fee of up to ten percent (10%) of the Provider Fee for the applicable Booking. The foregoing penalties and charges will be applied in Speakizi’s sole discretion and Speakers will be afforded an opportunity to present their reasons for cancelling the Booking.
9.3. Cancellations by Speakizi. Speakizi may cancel a Booking (and return all Provider Fees to the Host) to the extent that Speakizi, in its sole discretion, deems it necessary in order to protect the safety of Site Users, the Site or the public, or in case of a breach of, or to prevent or restrain a breach of, these Terms or Speakizi’s published guidelines and policies.
9.4. Acknowledgement. If you are a Speaker you agree that (a) a Host may cancel a Booking as set forth in your chosen Cancellation Policy and that Speakizi may cancel a Booking as stated above; (b) in the event of any such cancellation or failure to provide services, the Host shall receive a refund of the corresponding amounts as stated above or according to your chosen Cancellation Policy, as applicable; and (c) to the extent Speakizi has already remitted you Provider Fees for a cancelled Booking or for services you fail to provide, Speakizi may charge the appropriate amount due to the Host as specified above back from you for the purpose of refunding a Host any amount due according to these Terms.
