Part II – Consumer User Reservation-related Services
CellarPass provides the Reservation Services to User for the purpose of assisting User in securing reservations at participating third party Properties (each a “Property”). In response to a User’s online request, CellarPass directly contacts the Property’s computerized database of reservations. The availability of reservations is determined at the time of User’s query. Once a reservation is made by User, CellarPass will provide confirmation of the reservation to User by email. By using the Reservation Services, User agrees to receive reservation confirmations by email after booking a reservation through the Reservation Services.
2. No Show Policy
CellarPass is committed to delivering top-quality services to its Users and Properties. To assist us in maintaining a consistently top-level of service with the participating Properties, Users are asked to cancel any reservations that they will be unable to honor in accordance to the Property’s Cancellation Policy. You may cancel your reservation online or call the guest directly. Failing to comply with canceling your reservation within the cancellation window set forth by Property, your credit card on file may be charged.
If you are unable to keep your reservation and you fail to cancel, CellarPass will send you an email letting you know that our records indicate that you were marked as a ‘no-show’, by the Property. By using the Reservation Services, User agrees to receive no-show confirmations by email after a report that your reservation was not honored, whether or not that was in fact the case. Your CellarPass account will be terminated if you no-show for four (4) reservations within the same twelve-month period. If you receive a ‘no-show’ confirmation email in error, please contact the guest directly for information on how to dispute it. User agrees that all final no-show determination will be made by CellarPass in its sole discretion.
4. Usage Guidelines
User agrees to use the Reservation Services only to book reservations at participating Properties and then honor those reservations by arriving at the Property(ies) on time and paying any applicable tasting fees. User may be able to book multiple reservations through CellarPass’ Administrative Assistant and/or Concierge programs. Resale or attempted resale of reservations is prohibited, and is grounds for immediate cancellation of your reservations or termination of your access to the Services. CellarPass expressly reserves all its rights and remedies under applicable state and federal law. CellarPass reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel reservations.

This Agreement and the rights granted and obligations undertaken hereunder may not be transferred, assigned or delegated in any manner by User, but may be freely transferred, assigned or delegated by CellarPass.
Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement, or a delay by any party in the enforcement of any right hereunder, shall neither be construed as a continuing waiver nor create an expectation of non-enforcement of that or any other provision or right.
25. Choice of Law
The Agreement is made under and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
26. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER, CLASS ACTION WAIVER, AND FORUM SELECTION CLAUSE
Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and CellarPass or CellarPass’ employees, agents, successors, or assigns, shall exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration.
Arbitration shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). As modified by this Agreement, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively “Rules and Procedures”).
You are thus GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and CellarPass must abide by the following rules: (a) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR CELLARPASS 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) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, CellarPass will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (d) CellarPass also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (e) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (f) the arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor company 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; (g) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by Applicable Law; and (h) 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 shall be determined by the applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either You or CellarPass may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in San Francisco County, California. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in San Francisco County, California in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within San Francisco County, California for such purpose. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
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 shall remain in effect and shall 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 shall be null and void, and neither You nor CellarPass shall be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute shall be exclusively brought in state or federal court located in San Francisco County, California.
For more information on AAA, its Procedures and Rules, and how you can file an arbitration claim, visit their website at http://www.adr.org.

BY USING OR ACCESSING ANY PART OF THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED HEREIN AND ALL OTHER OPERATING RULES, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES THAT MAY BE PUBLISHED FROM TIME TO TIME ON THE SITE BY CELLARPASS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY OF SUCH TERMS, CONDITIONS, RULES, POLICIES OR PROCEDURES, DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES. THIS TOS MAY ONLY BE MODIFIED (I) ON AN EVENT BY EVENT BASIS THROUGH A WRITTEN TICKETING SERVICES AGREEMENT OR WRITTEN ADDENDUM AGREEMENT TO THIS TOS, SIGNED BY YOU AND AN AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF CELLARPASS, OR (II) BY CELLARPASS AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 1.2 BELOW.
CELLARPASS reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any of the terms or conditions of this TOS at any time. It is your responsibility to check this TOS periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of any changes to this TOS constitutes acceptance of those changes. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to you, your sole remedy is to cease accessing, browsing and otherwise using the Services.
CELLARPASS provides a simple and quick means for registered users who are event organizers and planners (“Organizers” or “you”) to collect payments with respect to the sale of tickets/registrations, merchandise and services for, and the solicitation of donations with respect to, events registered on the Site, including Service Fees (as defined below) (“Ticket Fees “), from users who want to attend such events (“Buyers”). Organizers may visit the Site, fill out a questionnaire about their event, including pricing, location, inventory, etc., and collect Ticket Fees online directly from Buyers. Payments are all transacted through the CELLARPASS payment processing gateway (the “Gateway”). This TOS applies to you and your use of the Services as an Organizer.
3.1 The Services
CellarPass hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub licensable right to access and use the Services solely for the purposes of creating an event page with respect to, and promoting, managing, tracking, and collecting Ticket Fees for, an event that you have registered on the Site, in each case (i) in compliance with this TOS, and (ii) to the extent permitted under all applicable laws and regulations (foreign and domestic). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you shall not, and shall not permit anyone else to, directly or indirectly: (i) modify, reproduce or otherwise create derivatives of any part of the Services or Site Content (as defined below); (ii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or structure, sequence and organization of all or any part of the Services (except that this restriction shall not apply to the limited extent restrictions on reverse engineering are prohibited by applicable local law); (iii) rent, lease, resell, distribute or use the Services for timesharing, service bureau, or commercial purposes (except for the limited commercial purpose of collecting Ticket Fees through the Site as an Organizer in accordance with this TOS); (iv) remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels on or in the Services or Site Content; or (v) engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services.
If you are allowed to download or use any Software in connection with the Services, CELLARPASS hereby grants you a personal, non-transferable, non-sub licensable, revocable, non-exclusive license to use the Software solely for your internal use in connection with the Services, and only in accordance with this TOS and the written instructions/directions (if any) provided by CELLARPASS in conjunction with the Software. For purposes of this TOS, “Software” shall mean any and all software that is available on or through the Site or otherwise provided by CELLARPASS, including without limitation CELLARPASSs mobile applications (such as At The Door™, Entry Manager and the CellarPass app). For clarity, the Software will be deemed a part of the “Services” hereunder.
The Software and the transmission of applicable data is subject to United States export controls. No Software may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported in violation of U.S. export laws. Downloading or using the Software is at your sole risk. You shall also be responsible for using the Software in a manner that complies with all federal, state and local laws and the rules and regulations of all credit card companies.
The Software and related documentation are “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” respectively, as such terms are used in United States Federal Acquisition Regulations Section 12.212. Any use, duplication or disclosure of the Software or such documentation by or on behalf of the U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in this TOS.
There are two types of payment processing Organizers use when using the Services: “Credit Card Processing” or “CCP”, which requires the use of the Gateway for the collection of Ticket Fees. Monetary payments will be made to the Organizer directly by CELLARPASS (via CCP) and Stripe (SD) in which all payments are collected by the Organizer directly via their own Stripe merchant account and such sales transactions. All questions regarding a ticket sale transaction, event cancellation or ticket purchase refund must be made to the Organizer directly. Unless otherwise stated, CellarPass does not own, operate, manage or is in anyway responsible for any ticketed events/experiences promoted through the Site.
(a) Payment Process
CELLARPASS will collect all Ticket Fees on behalf of the Organizer from Buyers and deduct all applicable Services Fees from the Ticket Fees collected by CELLARPASS, and then pass the remainder along to the Organizer within five (5) business days after the event end date by default. CELLARPASS reserves the right to withhold funds (i) at any time as CELLARPASS 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 TOS. If you need access to ticket funds prior to the default payout date for things like venue expenses, catering deposits, etc... you may apply for payout advances. In order for an application for event payout advance to be considered, it is required that 100% of all tickets (free or paid) for the event must be processed exclusively by CellarPass. Selling or otherwise issuing tickets through another system such as organizer's POS or sales system(s), other ticketing platforms, marketing sites, etc... is a breach of the payout advance agreement and will terminate the payout advances immediately. Additionally, Organizer agrees and understands there is a $75.00 administrative fee charged for each advance issued. Please note that approval for a payout advance is issued on a case by case basis. If you would like to apply for ticketed event payout advances please email email@example.com to initiate the application process.
ORGANIZER AGREES THAT ANY PAYMENT BY CELLARPASS OF TICKET FEES PRIOR TO THE FIFTH (5TH) BUSINESS DAY AFTER THE END DATE OF THE APPLICABLE EVENT IS MERELY AN ADVANCE OF AMOUNTS THAT MAY BECOME DUE TO ORGANIZER UNDER THIS TOS AND THAT CELLARPASS MAY DEMAND SUCH ADVANCES BACK (FROM TIME TO TIME IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION), AND ORGANIZER SHALL THEREUPON PROMPTLY (AND IN ANY CASE WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS AFTER SUCH DEMAND) PAY BACK TO CELLARPASS SUCH ADVANCE OR ANY PORTION THEREOF DEMANDED BY CELLARPASS.
Organizer agrees that all Ticket Fees for a given event are earned by Organizer only following conclusion of the applicable event and all Ticket Fees ultimately due will be net of all Service Fees, refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks and other deductions, whether due to customer complaints, allegations of fraud, discrepancies related to the applicable event or otherwise. No payments shall be made to an Organizer from CELLARPASS with respect to any event that is cancelled. If payments have already been made by CELLARPASS to an Organizer for a cancelled event, Organizer will immediately refund to CELLARPASS all such payments upon cancellation of such event. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in U.S. Dollars.
(i) Under the CCP option, it is the responsibility of the Organizer to communicate its refund policy to Buyers and to issue refunds to Buyers via the Site. An Organizer shall ensure that its refund policy is consistent with the terms of this TOS and the payment and refund mechanics of the Site. The Site permits an Organizer to issue refunds to Buyers, provided the refund is issued by Organizer prior to four (4) days after the end date of an event and within 120 days after the original transaction date for the underlying ticket purchase. Refunds issued outside such period will not be processed through the Site and must be issued by the Organizer through an alternative payment, such as a check. Subject to the foregoing, refunds issued by an Organizer will be processed immediately via the Site. All communications or disputes regarding refunds are between the Organizer and Buyer, and CELLARPASS will not be responsible or liable for, and Organizer hereby agrees to fully indemnify CELLARPASS and its affiliates for, refunds, errors in issuing refunds, or lack of refunds in connection with the use of the CCP option. (ii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that CELLARPASS shall have the right to force a refund of any or all tickets at any time for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if CELLARPASS receives complaints from a substantial number (as determined by CELLARPASS in its sole discretion) of Buyers with respect to the applicable event or another event held by Organizer, or CELLARPASS determines in its sole discretion that Organizer 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 CELLARPASS would reasonably expect to lose a chargeback, CELLARPASS may, in its sole discretion, issue such refund to such Buyer(s), and Organizer shall then owe the amount of such refund to CELLARPASS. If a payout advance has been issued for an event the Organizer agrees to not issue refunds in excess of the actual ticket funds available for the event.
(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 Organizer of such event. All communications and disputes regarding chargebacks are between the Organizer and Buyer, and CELLARPASS will not be responsible or liable in any way for, and Organizer hereby agrees to fully indemnify CELLARPASS and its affiliates for, chargebacks issued in the course of the use of the CCP option.
4.4 Non-Exclusive Remedies
In the event that Organizer fails to pay to CELLARPASS any amount owed pursuant to this TOS 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 Organizer to CELLARPASS under this TOS or otherwise, CELLARPASS may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, (i) deduct such amounts from Organizer’s outstanding balance, whether for that particular event or for any other event that Organizer lists through the Services; and/or (ii) send an invoice to Organizer for such amounts to the extent Organizer’s outstanding balance is insufficient to cover these costs, in which case Organizer shall pay CELLARPASS such invoiced amounts within fifteen (15) days after the date of the invoice. If payment for any amounts due to CELLARPASS hereunder are not made by Organizer when due, CELLARPASS reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without limiting its other rights and remedies, to terminate Organizer’s registration for the Services (including any and all accounts that Organizer may have) and to cancel all other events listed by Organizer.
Upon receipt of a credit card authorization from each individual ticket purchase, CELLARPASS generates a confirmation message and issues a unique confirmation number. You agree to unconditionally accept, honor, and fulfill all ticketing commitments that have been confirmed by CELLARPASS through the Services, and it is your responsibility to verify the Buyer’s membership status, confirmation number and/or any event restrictions prior to the subject event.
(c) Taxes; Withholding
(i) 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 for collecting, remitting and reporting the correct amounts of all such Taxes to the applicable governmental authorities, even if CELLARPASS provides you with tools that assist you in doing so. CELLARPASS does not represent or warrant that any tax tools will meet all tax requirements that may be applicable to you. CELLARPASS 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 CELLARPASS to pay any Taxes attributable to your use of the Services, you agree to indemnify and reimburse CELLARPASS for such Taxes and all costs and expenses related thereto.
(ii) All Service Fees charged by CellarPass 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 Service Fees (other than those calculated based on CELLARPASS’S net income) to CellarPass.
(iii) In addition, due to new IRS regulations, if CELLARPASS processes transactions and issues you payouts (A) for more than $20,000 in gross sales and (B) for more than 200 order transactions, in each case during a given calendar year and in the aggregate across all of your accounts, CELLARPASS is required to report to the IRS the gross amount of transactions for which you have been paid in that calendar year and in each month of that calendar year, as well as, your name, your address, and your Tax Identification Number (“Your Tax Information”). Starting in 2013, as part of these new IRS regulations, CELLARPASS is required to either (I) collect Your Tax Information or (II) establish that you are a foreign person not subject to US taxes, before your accounts pass the 200 order transaction threshold in the aggregate. Once your accounts cross the 200 order transaction threshold, you agree that you will not receive any further payments from CELLARPASS until either (I) or (II) above are satisfied.
(iv) CELLARPASS reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder if CELLARPASS suspects or determines that such amounts have been generated in (A) a fraudulent manner, (B) violation of this TOS, or (C) violation of any applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic), or if CELLARPASS is required to do so by applicable laws or regulations (foreign or domestic). Such withholding may be temporary or permanent (as determined by CELLARPASS).
Stripe Direct Payments (SD)
Transactions processed via an Organizer's using the SD option are transacted by the Organizer and immediately deposited to the Organizer's bank account. CellarPass does not have access to funds processed via the SD option nor does CellarPass have authorization to process refunds on behalf of an Organizer using the SD option. Organizers assume full responsibility and liability for ticket sales funds collected via the SD option.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including, without limitation, all actions by sub-users registered under your account. You agree to (a) immediately notify CELLARPASS of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. CELLARPASS cannot and will not be liable for any loss, damage or other liability arising from your failure to comply with this Section or from any unauthorized access to or use of your account.
