2. Scope of Services
The Experico Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered Users to offer in-person and online teaching experiences as Hosts to and publish such Experiences on the Experico Platform in order to communicate and transact directly with Attendees that are seeking to register for such Experiences.

Your Transactions page on Experico shows you a balance of proceeds for your Experiences in your Experico account.

We may exercise such setoff rights before we make any payout to you. We are not liable to you for any claims resulting from our decision to exercise our setoff rights. No payments shall be made to a Host with respect to any event that is cancelled or with respect to which Experico believes there is a risk of cancellation or nonperformance.

If you book an Experience on behalf of additional Attendees, you are required to ensure that every additional guest meets any requirements set by the Host, and is made aware of and agrees to these Terms and any terms and conditions, rules and restrictions set by the Host. If you are registering for an additional guest who is a minor, you represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor. Minors may only participate in an Experience or other Host Offering if overseen by an adult who is fully responsible for them.

Please view our Merchant, Payment and Refund terms for more information about these terms and conditions
10. Registration Modifications, Cancellations and Refund Policy
Host agrees to communicate a refund policy to Attendees with respect to each Experience posted on the Services and adhere to the Refund Policy. When creating an Experience on the Platform, the Host chooses whether the Experience will be refundable and, if so, until what date. This information automatically generated and published to the Experience page and cannot be changed once an Attendee has registered for an Experience. No-refund policies are permitted and will be displayed on the Experience page created by the Host. The host is obligated to add any other relevant information regarding their policies to the Additional Policies section of their experience description.
All Host-allowed refunds will be processed automatically through the Platform in accordance with the host’s selected refund policy upon Attendee request. Refunded amount will be the amount paid, less Attendee Service Fees. Approved refunds will typically take 3-5 days to process. No refunds will be processed for non-refundable events or after the refundable-by date.
In order to initiate a refund request, an Attendee should go to the Experience Hub for that Experience and initiate the Refund through the Admin tab. Attendees may only request a refund for an Experience they purchased themselves through their own account. If another User purchased and Experience for you, the refund will be made through their account. If the Experience is non-refundable or the refund-by date has passed, the Refund button will not be available in the Admin area.
In certain cases, at the sole discretion of Experico, refunds may be manually processed. Experico may determine, based on circumstances whether to process manual refunds on a case by case basis in accordance with this Refund Policy. Experico offers no guarantee of refund by this method and will review individual cases for extenuating circumstances or situations in violation of these Terms before making a decision or refund in this manner.
In the event of a full or partial manual refund taking place after payout has been made to the Host (in accordance with our determination of fraudulent behavior not in compliance with these Terms), the Host agrees to remit sufficient funds to cover said refunds back to Experico within five (5) business days so that refunds can be processed by Experico on the Host’s behalf
Hosts and Attendees agree that no refunds shall be made outside of the Experico platform (e.g. offline, in person or through other payment apps or sites)
All disputes regarding refunds are between Host and its Attendees. In the event of a dispute, Experico may try to mediate, but ultimately it is Host’s obligation to settle the dispute.
Experico shall have the right to make refunds on Host’s behalf without limitation, including to non-refundable Experiences, in cases where Experico believes, with its sole discretion that the Host has failed to comply with these Terms and Conditions.
Attendees who have cancelled a Registration (paid or free) and / or received a Refund will no longer have access to the sections of the Experience Hub which are intended for Registered Attendees. These sections include but are not limited to the Classroom, Forums, and Student list.
If a Host cancels an Experience after a confirmed registration is made, the Attendee will receive a full refund of the Total Fees for such registration and Experico may publish an automated review on the Experience cancelled by the Host indicating that an experience was cancelled.
If inclement weather creates an unsafe or uncomfortable scenario for Attendees, Hosts may modify or cancel a Host Service. If there is a substantial change in the itinerary or the Host Service needs to be cancelled, Experico will work with the Host to provide Attendees an alternative date for the Host Service, or an appropriate refund.
In certain circumstances, Experico may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to cancel a confirmed registration and make appropriate refund and payout decisions.
This Refund Policy is not intended to constitute an offer to insure, does not constitute insurance or an insurance contract, does not take the place of insurance obtained or obtainable by the Attendee. These 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 Host and are not a guarantee that refunds will be issued in any given situation.
11. Cancellation Policy
Host agrees to notify Attendees of the event cancellation as soon as reasonably possible and prior to the event start time. Host agrees to provide clear instructions and contact information to Attendees. In the case of a Host cancelled Experience, refunded amount will equal the total amount paid.
Host acknowledges that Experico reserves the right to charge the Host for the cost of chargebacks related to the cancelled event in accordance with the Merchant Agreement.
If the Host cancels only part of a multi-day event, then Host agrees to refund a pro-rata monetary value portion of the purchase price of a multi-day ticket based on the corresponding monetary value of the portion of the multi-day event that was cancelled.
12. Ratings and Reviews
Within a certain time frame after completing an Experience, Attendees can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a star rating (“Rating”) about their experience. Any Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinion of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of Experico. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by Experico for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
Ratings and Reviews must be fair, truthful and factual and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language.
Members are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings and Reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party write a positive or negative Review about another Member.
As a Host you are solely responsible for determining your obligations to report, collect, remit or include in your Experience Fees any applicable VAT or other indirect sales taxes, occupancy tax, tourist or other visitor taxes or income taxes ("Taxes").
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate Tax information from Hosts, or to withhold Taxes from payouts to Hosts, or both. If a Host fails to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold Taxes from payouts to you, we reserve the right to freeze all payouts, withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both, until resolution.
You understand that any appropriate governmental agency, department and/or authority ("Tax Authority") may require Taxes to be collected from Attendees or Hosts on Experience Fees, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority.

Experico assumes no obligation in the remittance of taxes on Experience Fees collected by you.

18. Limitation of Liability
You agree that you have had whatever opportunity you deem necessary to investigate the Experico Services, laws, rules, or regulations that may be applicable to your Experiences and/or Host Offerings you are receiving and that you are not relying upon any statement of law or fact made by Experico relating to a Experience.
If we choose to conduct identity verification or background checks on any Member, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Member or guarantee that a Member will not engage in misconduct in the future.
You agree that some Experiences, Events or other Host Offerings may carry inherent risk, and by participating in those Host Offerings, you choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some Host Offerings may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those Host Offerings. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during and after your participation in a Host Service. If you are bringing a minor as an additional guest, you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor throughout the duration of your Host Service and to the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree to release and hold harmless Experico from all liabilities and claims that arise in any way from any injury, death, loss or harm that occurs to that minor during the Host Service or in any way related to your Host Service.
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, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Experico Platform and Collective Content, your publishing or registering for any Experience via the Experico Platform, participation in any Experience or Event or use of any other Host Service or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online remains with you. Neither Experico nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Experico Platform or Collective Content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the Experico Platform or Collective Content, (iii) from any communications, interactions or meetings with other Members or other persons with whom you communicate, interact or meet with as a result of your use of the Experico Platform, or (iv) from your publishing or registration of a Experience, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not Experico has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. In no event will Experico’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the Experico Platform including, but not limited to, from your publishing or registering for any Experiences via the Experico Platform, or from the use of or inability to use the Experico Platform or Collective Content and in connection with any Accommodation, Experiences, Event or other Host Service, or interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for Registrations via the Experico Platform as an attendee in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Host, the amounts paid by Experico to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Experico and you.
You agree to release, indemnify, and hold Experico and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, co-branders, licensors, payment processing partners, other partners and employees harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ and accounting fees) resulting from any claim, demand, suit, proceeding (whether before an arbitrator, court, mediator or otherwise) or investigation made by any third party (each a “Claim”) due to or arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your breach of these Terms or our Policies or Standards, (ii) your improper use of the Experico Platform or any Experico Services, (iii) your interaction with any Member, participation in an Experience, Event or other Host Service, including without limitation any injuries, losses or damages of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of such interaction, participation or use, (iv) Experico’s Collection and remittance of taxes, or (v) your breach of any laws, regulations or third party rights.
Experico provides a marketplace in which Attendees and Hosts can transact. However, Experico could not function if it were held responsible for the actions or inactions of different Attendees, Hosts and/or third parties both on and off the Services. Therefore, as an inducement to Experico permitting you to access and use the Services, you hereby agree to release Experico, and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, agents, partners and employees from all damages (whether direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or otherwise), losses, liabilities, costs and expenses of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with disputes between you and third parties (including other Users) in connection with the Services or any event listed on the Services.
21. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
Any dispute or claim under these Terms of Service or with respect to the services will be settled by binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) and will take place on an individual basis only; class, consolidated or representative arbitrations and civil actions are not permitted once this section is effective.
You agree that if you have a question or concern about the Services you will contact us directly before taking any other action and you agree to a 30 day informal review period during which time we will do our best to address your concern and settle the matter.
In the unlikely event that our team is unable to resolve your concerns, we each hereby agree to resolve any and all disputes or claims with respect to the Services through binding arbitration or in small claims court (to the extent the claim qualifies) instead of in courts of general jurisdiction and only on an individual basis and not as part of any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding.
This agreement to arbitrate includes, but is not limited to: (i) all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) all claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); and (iii) all claims that may arise after termination of these Terms of Service and/or your use of the Services.
You and Experico agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated or representative proceeding. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, may not preside over any form of class, consolidated or representative proceeding and may only provide relief in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) which must be sent by certified mail. The Notice to you must be addressed to a mailing, home or payment address currently on record with Experico and must be sent by certified mail. If Experico has no records of such physical address, such notice may be delivered to your Experico account email address. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Experico and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or Experico may commence an arbitration proceeding.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules, or, if the actions giving rise to the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use), the Consumer Arbitration Rules (in each case, the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and will be administered by the AAA and settled by a single arbitrator.
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator costs and expenses imposed by AAA will be governed by the AAA rules, provided that if you are initiating an arbitration against Experico and the value of the relief sought is ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, then Experico will advance all filing, administrative and arbitration costs and expenses imposed by AAA (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). If the circumstances in the preceding sentence apply, but the value of relief sought is more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) and you demonstrate to the arbitrator that such costs and expenses would be prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding, then Experico will pay the amount of any such costs and expenses that the arbitrator determines are necessary to prevent the arbitration from being prohibitively more expensive than a court proceeding (subject to reimbursement as set forth below). In the event that the arbitrator determines that all of the claims you assert in arbitration are frivolous according to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11, you agree to reimburse Experico for all such cost and expenses that Experico paid and that you would have been obligated to pay under the AAA rules. You agree to make such payment within 30 days of decision.
Just as in any court proceeding, each party will initially bear its own attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any arbitration. Should either party be determined to have substantially prevailed in the arbitration, then upon such party’s request, the arbitrator shall award such prevailing party the reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses that it incurred in connection with the arbitration, provided that to the extent that the dispute or claim relate to your personal or household use of the Services (rather than business use). The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the reimbursement of attorneys’ fees and expenses upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement must be brought in state or federal court in Hackensack, New Jersey.
This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms of Service.
22. General Provisions
Except as they may be supplemented by additional terms and conditions, policies, guidelines or standards, these Terms constitute the entire Agreement between Experico and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and supersede any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Experico and you in relation to the access to and use of the Experico Platform.
No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Experico as a result of this Agreement or your use of the Experico Platform. No independent contractor, agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms of Service.
These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions.
Experico’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
You may not assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and your rights and obligations hereunder without Experico's prior written consent. Experico may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and any rights and obligations hereunder, at its sole discretion, with 30 days prior notice. Your right to terminate this Agreement at any time remains unaffected.
Unless specified otherwise, any notices or other communications to Members permitted or required under this Agreement, will be in writing and given by Experico via email, Experico Platform notification, or messaging service the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which Experico transmits the notice.
23. Modification of these Terms
Experico reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any of the terms or conditions of these Terms of Service (or any of the agreements that make up these Terms of Service) at any time (collectively, “Modifications”). Modifications to these Terms of Service will be posted to the Experico website with a change to the "Updated” date at the top of these Terms of Service. In certain circumstances Experico may provide you with additional notice of such Modifications, via email or with in-Service notifications. Modifications will be effective thirty (30) days following the "Updated” date or such other date as communicated in any other notice to you, except that changes addressing new functions of the Services or which do not impose any additional burdens or obligations on you will be effective immediately. It is your responsibility to check these Terms of Service periodically for Modifications. Your continued use of the Services following the effectiveness of any Modifications to these Terms of Service constitutes acceptance of those Modifications as well. If any Modification to these Terms of Service is not acceptable to you, you must cease accessing, browsing and otherwise using the Services. Other than as set forth in this paragraph, these Terms of Service may only be modified through a written Ticketing Services Agreement or written Addendum Agreement, signed by you and an authorized officer of Experico.
