Description of Kickback Tickets1. The General Service
Kickback Tickets (KICKBACK) provides an online source for searching and accessing information about events posted to the KICKBACK website, and purchasing tickets to such events through a unique system which can help to ensure their success. This (System) allows both (Purchasers) and (Organizers) to access the KICKBACK website and to search, post, offer and purchase tickets for various events, with KICKBACK acting as an intermediary. The KICKBACK System utilizes a function called (Tipping) to only process payment for purchased tickets once a certain attendance requirement for the event to take place has been met. All parenthetical terms referenced above in this section are defined immediately below.
Definitions2.1 Kickback Tickets
Kickback Tickets (KICKBACK/We/Us/Our) is Kickback Tickets, LLC is a California Limited Liability Company which administers and maintains the website (the Site) through which KICKBACK operates its ticketing intermediary Service and runs the KICKBACK System. Unless otherwise specified in writing, all references to KICKBACK contained herein shall refer to the business entity of KICKBACK as well as to its Site, Service and System.
2.2 KICKBACK Website
The KICKBACK Website (the Site) is the online vehicle, including any Content (as defined below), through which KICKBACK operates its ticketing intermediary Service and runs the KICKBACK System, as well provides User access for Purchasers and Organizers either utilizing the Website and/or having Accounts. The Site includes any code that is owned by us.
2.3 KICKBACK Service
The KICKBACK Service (the Service) is the functional portion of our Site which allows Users to view posted events, Purchasers to buy tickets for events and Organizers to post events and offer tickets. The Service further encompasses the KICKBACK System which facilitates payment processing and the Tipping mechanic.
2.4 KICKBACK System
The KICKBACK System (the System) is the operating portion of our Service which facilitates the purchase of tickets for posted events, is intended to handle all financial transactions conducted through our Site in accordance these TOU and which employs the Tipping mechanic which will determine whether or not Pre-Tipping ticket purchases are processed.
Tipping is the mechanism by which our System determines if payment for purchased tickets for any particular event will be processed. All events posted on our Site will have a particular number of tickets offered for purchase and a particular number which must be purchased in order for that event to take place. Tickets which are purchased through our System prior to the number of required ticket purchases being reached (the “Tipping Point”) will be reserved but payment for them will not be processed until the Tipping Point is reached. Once the Tipping Point is reached, an event is deemed to have “Tipped” and is now considered confirmed by the concerned Organizer(s). Upon an event tipping, all payments for tickets purchased prior to the Tipping Point are then processed by us.
Tickets purchased by any User for an event after that event has Tipped will have their payments for purchase processed immediately as the event will already be considered confirmed.
An Event is any type of gathering, trip, show, performance, class, occurrence, etc. which has tickets offered through our Site by an Organizer for purchase. Events must comply with these TOU (for example we won’t facilitate events which are pornographic, hateful or illegal in nature as we are a private Service and Site and not a public forum). We may remove any events violating these TOU from our Site (see below). Events may also be listed as Public or Private.
A Private Event means any event which is posted by an Organizer (posting requires use of an Account) as “invite only.” This means that an Organizer has invited a particular group of people to his/her event and is offering tickets for that event for purchase only by those invitees. Users who have received an invite to a private event may access their option to purchase tickets for that event by clicking on a link to the event description and purchase page on our Site, which will be provided to them by the Organizer in the invitation. Private events will not be searchable or viewable by general Users on our Site and are accessible only invitees to the event.
A Public Event means any event which is posted by an Organizer on our site generally, without any “invite only” restriction. All public events may be viewed by any User on our Site and any User may purchase tickets for such events. A public event may also be viewed on the account profile of an Organizer posting that event; by looking at the profile of an Organizer an Account Holder may view the currently offered events from that Organizer and to a limited extent may also view previous offered events.
2.9 Account Holder
All Account Holders are deemed to be Users of our Site. Registration as an Account Holder is required to organize events and can also provide Users with an opportunity to create and record information such as profile materials and purchase history. As an Account Holder there are certain terms and conditions contained in these TOU by which you must abide that apply above and beyond the general terms and conditions applying to all Users. Without limitation these provisions include: Restrictions upon Age, Password and User Name Requirements, Content Submission Regulation, Event Posting Regulation, Termination, and various rules concerning purchase and sales transaction. It is important that you read the entirety of these TOU before creating an account because upon creating an account you will be accepting all provisions in these TOU that apply to you.
A Purchaser is any User who utilizes our Service to order and/or buy tickets. While Purchasers may not necessarily have registered accounts with KICKBACK and are thus not subject to all of the same terms and conditions as are Account Holders/Organizers, Purchasers will be subject to certain terms and conditions set forth in these TOU which exceed the terms and conditions applicable to Users generally. Terms which are specific to Purchasers in these TOU are set forth below in a specifically designated section; all terms and conditions in these TOU still apply to you as a Purchaser unless otherwise specified.
An Organizer is any Account Holder who posts events and/or offers event tickets for sale. An Organizer’s account will possess various functionality as described below. An Organizer may use their account to purchase tickets for events in the same fashion as any User, but an Organizer may have to use a separate PayPal account to purchase tickets which that same Organizer is offering for sale through KICKBACK. All Organizers will be subject to certain terms and conditions set forth in these TOU which exceed the terms and conditions applicable to Users generally. Terms which are specific to Organizers in these TOU are set forth below in a specifically designated section; all terms and conditions in these TOU still apply to you as an Organizer unless otherwise specified.
2.12 My Kickback
The webpage granted to each Account Holder upon registration shall be called MyKickback and each shall function as the personal account and account management page for the concerned registered Account Holder. Functions on MyKickback may include event creation, viewing of pre-tipping attendees, viewing of post-tipping confirmed attendees/ticket holders, receipt of copies QR code(s) for check-in/admission of ticketed attendees, personal profile information, transaction information and PayPal account linkage, event history, etc.
At the discretion of KICKBACK we may allow Organizers to provide incentives to potential Purchasers to encourage early or multiple ticket purchases; these incentives are called Perks. Perks may be constituted by items such as CDs, posters, t-shirts, special passes, etc. Perks may only be offered by Organizers and may only be offered when specifically designated as a Perk and posted in the appropriate event information field. Perks shall only be posted at the time of event creation and may not be added to an event for which ticket sales have already been activated. Perks shall not be created in the form of contests, sweepstakes or gambling of any kind.
Content is any material, existing or having existed on our Site in any fashion consistent with these TOU from any origin and in any form whether digital, electronic, posted, deleted, archived, embedded, linked or contained in any subpage of our Site or existing as data, designs, text, images, graphics or code whether object, source or otherwise, and without limitation may generally be considered material which we have provided on or as part of our Site or which Users have provided, posted or uploaded to it.
Terms for All Users
The terms and conditions in this Section apply to your use of our Site, Service and System as do all other provisions in these TOU unless specifically designated otherwise.

Without limitation, the terms and conditions contained in this, Part IV of these TOU, apply specifically to you; other portions of these TOU may also still apply.
4.1 Purchase Transactions Generally
All purchase transactions (“purchases”) made through our Site are executed through PayPal and you must have a PayPal account or use the PayPal system as a guest to make purchase of any tickets offered through our Site. We are not affiliated with PayPal and are not responsible for any actions taken by PayPal in relation to any purchase which you make or any problems with the PayPal website, system or service including any interruptions to any of the same, rejections or limitations by PayPal of your use of their website, system or service, or any of their fees or refund policies of any kind. In using our Site and making any purchase you also represent and warrant that you have reviewed and agreed to the applicable terms and conditions which govern use of PayPal as the third party service method for facilitating your purchase/payment transaction(s).
4.2 Purchase Processing
When you purchase tickets through our Site your ticket order will be queued for processing via PayPal. If you make your purchase of any tickets prior to the Tipping Point of the concerned event, you will receive an order confirmation sent to the email listed on your purchase order form (or your account if you are an Account Holder/Organizer making a purchase), but your payment for that purchase will not be sent by us to PayPal for processing until the Tipping Point has been reached. Once the concerned event does Tip, you will receive an additional email notification and we will authorize processing of your payment as the event will then be considered “confirmed.” The amount of your processed payment will be deposited directly into the applicable account of the concerned Organizer and our Service Fee (see below) will deposited directly into our account(s) by PayPal; WE DO NOT HOLD YOUR MONEY AT ANY TIME DURING A PURCHASE TRANSACTION. If you make your purchase of any tickets after the Tipping Point of a concerned event has been reached, the purchase transaction will be handled in the same manner as described immediately above, except that processing of the transaction via PayPal will be authorized by us immediately as that concerned event will already be considered “confirmed.”
When you make a purchase of any tickets through our Site, our Service Fee will be added to your total purchase price and processed accordingly with the transaction. Our Service Fee is $0.99 (ninety-nine cents) per transaction plus 2.5% of the total base price of the ticket(s) purchased. Our Service Fee is split out of the total purchase price which you pay by PayPal and PayPal processes this fee directly into our account(s). You do not pay us our Service Fee directly nor do we deduct it from your total payment to the concerned Organizer regarding any transaction or event. PayPal also has its own fees which it will charge; these fees may apply to you or may be applied to the concerned Organizer regarding any transaction or event. In any case, we do not make any representation or warranty of any kind as to the nature or amount of any fees which PayPal may charge and we are not responsible for such fees or related activity of any kind in any way; we recommend that you review the rates and policies which PayPal applies to its own fees before you use our Site.
When you enter into a purchase transaction through our Site, you enter into a contractual relationship with the Organizer(s) offering the concerned ticket(s). You do not enter into any contractual relationship of any kind with us (other than the terms and conditions stated in these TOU). We are not responsible for the physical availability or availability otherwise, or condition, quality or quantity of any tickets that you purchase in any transaction and we do not hold or otherwise reserve any tickets for you or any other party at any time. Any problem that you have regarding the availability, condition, quality or quantity of any tickets which you order through our Site or otherwise is a matter between yourself and the concerned Organizer.
Notwithstanding the forgoing, in all practical instances we will email you a copy of your ticket containing a QR Code upon the processing of your purchase with the intent that you may use that copy to check yourself in or be checked in to the concerned event, provided that the Organizer allows and facilitates such mode of check-in. In no case or event do we ever guarantee this service nor do we ever handle or act as responsible for the actual checking-in or admittance of you or any party to any event. Notwithstanding the forgoing, at our discretion we may provide Organizers with a guest list on their account pages which may be utilized by such Organizers to check-in and/or keep track of event attendees.
When you enter into a purchase transaction through our Site, you enter into a contractual relationship with the Organizer(s) offering the concerned ticket(s). You do not enter into any contractual relationship of any kind with us (other than the terms and conditions stated in these TOU). We are not responsible for the actual occurrence or quality of any event or for your satisfaction or quality of experience regarding any event. If and only if an event is cancelled, we may issue you a refund of the Service Fees which we have charged you in accordance with the following terms:
the event must be cancelled and not rescheduled within a period of 30 (Thirty) days following the actual scheduled date of the event upon its cancellation;
the cancellation may not be the result of any force majeure (including any governmental act);
you must not have received any reimbursement from the Organizer or other responsible party of any monies paid by you for the cost of your ticket(s) in accordance with that Organizer’s/party’s refund policy or where one does not exist, within a period of 45 (Forty-five) days following the actual scheduled date of the event upon its cancellation;
you must provide us with a written request for a refund affirming that your refund request meets the aforementioned three requirements and this request may not be issued to us prior to 90 (Ninety) days following the actual scheduled date of the event upon its cancellation.
In any other case where a refund is requested or in the event that an event is cancelled and rescheduled by an Organizer multiple times, we will treat such requests on a case by case basis, but we are not responsible for issuing such refunds to you or any other party.
4.6 Purchaser Age Restriction
KICKBACK provides a service which allows for the purchase and sale of tickets to events via credit card and other digital transactions, many of which may form the basis for contracts; further KICKBACK provides a means by which its Users may view, access or host certain events which may be only intended for private or mature audiences.

If you do not meet this age requirement but you still make a purchase, or if we suspect you do not meet this age requirement, we will consider you in violation of these TOU and may terminate your any of your pending transactions immediately without prior notice to you and may refuse to process any of your future transactions.
Further, if you have used an unauthorized form of payment to circumvent the age requirement (such as a parent’s credit card) this will also constitute a violation of these TOU and we may terminate your pending transactions and refuse to process any of your future transactions and will be under no obligation to restrict our disclosure of any information regarding such transactions or charges if we are requested or compelled to release such information as part of any chargeback, investigatory or legal proceeding.

For these reasons and because KICKBACK respects the rights, privacy and safety of all its Users, you are not permitted to create an account with us if you are under 18 years of age. When you create an account you certify that you meet this age requirement. If you do not meet this age requirement but you still create an account, or if we suspect you do not meet this age requirement, we will consider you in violation of these TOU and may terminate your account(s) immediately without prior notice to you and may refuse to process any of your pending transactions.

KICKBACK 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.

B. Posting Information
When you offer tickets for sale through our Site, you agree to either post in your initial posting information, or to make available prior to the concerned Tipping Point, the following:

basic information about yourself or your company as the event Organizer including contact information or other information that Purchasers may need to get necessary information about the event;
the cost of tickets and information regarding any other items which might materially impact the cost of attendance;

When offering tickets to an event, whether public or private, in the posting/invitation, you must convey the threshold of the Tipping Point; a Tipping Point must be at least 1 ticket and no Tipping Point may be reached less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled start of the event (meaning that you may assign a certain date by which your event must Tip, but in any case if your event has not Tipped prior to 24 hours before the scheduled time of the event, it will automatically be canceled). Likewise, you may not post or issue invites to an event scheduled to take place less than 24 hours from the time of posting/invitation. YOU WHOLLY AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IF YOUR EVENT DOES NOT TIP, PAYMENTS FOR PURCHASE ORDERS OF YOUR OFFERED TICKETS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY MONEY FOR SUCH PURCHASE ORDERS OR ANY EXPECTANCY THEREOF.
You agree that all ticketed events will honor advanced confirmation of tickets purchased for such events. When ticket purchase(s) is/are processed, we auto-generate an event ticket for each Purchaser and email it to them using the requisite information from the concerned event creation page; without limitation you agree that any and all such tickets generated by us shall be honored by you and shall function as advance confirmation from you to Purchasers buying such tickets and shall gain them admission to the concerned event upon presentation at entry/registration (if such presentation is required by you) for the concerned event. In all reasonably possible cases, tickets generated by us to serve as advanced confirmation shall bear a QR code which may be used for purposes of checking in ticket holders at the event if necessary. You will be able to view the advanced confirmation list at any time after your event has tipped and can email confirmed event attendees with updates concerning the event.
In all cases you must maintain a true, accurate and current list of Purchasers for your event which is at least held by you at the point of event entrance/registration/commencement so that you may properly confirm attendance of and admit Purchasers as they arrive. Such a list, as provided by us, may be accessed by you at your MyKickback Page.
5.7 Purchase Transactions
You are required to have a PayPal account when establishing an account with us. We do not currently facilitate transactions through other vehicles/methods. You understand and acknowledge that your receipt of payment for purchases of tickets offered for your event through our Site is governed and executed by PayPal and that once we authorize/send information to PayPal for the processing of any purchase payments of your offered tickets, you have no relationship with us or expectation of us regarding receipt of concerned monies of any kind and that any problems which you have or experience with such processing is entirely between you and PayPal. Our only responsibility to you in terms of payment processing is to authorize/send information for such processing upon the reaching of the Tipping Point for your event(s) and/or to do the same for purchase orders made after that Tipping Point has been reached. You further understand and acknowledge that PayPal has its own service fees, which it may deduct from processed payments to be received by you, and that we are in no way responsible for such fees or otherwise keeping you apprised of their existence, nature or amount.
When the Tipping Point for your event has been reached, we will provide the necessary authorization/information to PayPal to process payment for tickets to your event. Posting by us to PayPal typically occurs the same day as such provision but will be executed within a period of no more than 5 (Five) business days absent our prior notification to you of extenuating circumstances. When purchases are made for tickets to an event you have posted after that event has already Tipped, we will we will provide the necessary authorization/information to PayPal to process payment for tickets to your event. Posting by us to PayPal typically occurs the same day as such provision but will be executed within a period of no more than 3 (Three) business days absent our prior notification to you of extenuating circumstances. In most cases PayPal will take 3-5 (Three to Five) business days to process transfer of requested funds into any other account linked to your PayPal account; we are not responsible for, nor do we guarantee the timing of such transfer or make any binding representation as to the services controlled by PayPal. If your event does not Tip, we will not provide authorization/information needed to initiate processing of payment for any purchase orders made and you relieve of us from all responsibility and/or liability for doing so. WE DO NOT HOLD YOUR MONEY OR YOUR TICKETS AT ANY POINT DURING THE PURCHASE TRANSACTION OR PROCESSING OF THE SAME. Our fees for transactions are charged to the concerned Purchaser(s) and are transferred upon (and only upon) processing of payment for purchaser orders by PayPal to our account(s) without relation to or effect upon your own receipt of payments.
You agree to provide us with true and accurate information required to facilitate the processing of any payments to you and you agree and acknowledge that without such information we cannot do so.
We do not record or report tax information regarding monies received by you for any transaction concerning any tickets offered or events posted through our Site because we do not hold or issue any money for or to you at any time. Our own tax responsibilities concerning our Service Fees are executed entirely independently of your interests or involvement. You are solely responsible for determining which, if any, sales, use, amusement, value added, consumption, excise and/or other taxes, duties, levies and charges (collectively, "Taxes") may be applicable to your use of our Site and for collecting, remitting and reporting the correct amounts of all such taxes to the applicable governmental authorities.

If the cancelled event will be or may be rescheduled by you, or has already been, you must also notify all concerned Purchasers of the change; rescheduled events are still considered “canceled” for the purposes of these TOU.
If your event is cancelled after the Tipping Point for it has been reached, you must issue refunds immediately to all concerned Purchasers and/or if the event is or is to be rescheduled, you must still make refunds available to any concerned Purchasers who request them. Cancelled/Rescheduled events will not be hosted within our System; we will remove your post and any availability for Purchasers to interact further with it. In no case shall an event be considered as having returned below/before the Tipping Point upon the basis of any issued refunds or other results from cancellation/rescheduling. If you wish to have your rescheduled event reposted on our Site, you must create a new posting for the event and notify us in the posting information field that it is a rescheduled event which was previously posted to our site but then cancelled. Allowing the reposting of any rescheduled event is entirely within our discretion.
Without restriction or limitation, you agree to indemnify, defend and otherwise hold us harmless for any liability, claims, damages, liens, penalties, fines or fees (including attorney’s fees and/or accounting fees) which we incur or are brought against us by any party as a result, either directly or indirectly, of your cancellation/rescheduling of an event, your mishandling of any element of the payment processing, ticketing or confirmation procedures, or any User experience or injury derived from attendance or planned attendance at your event.
