Last Updated: November 13, 2018
1.1 License Grant. Cvent Germany GmbH (“Cvent“) hereby grants to Customer (“Customer”, “You”, “Your”) a non-sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive right to access and use its “Licensed Software” which is comprised principally of: (i) the content management portal at https://home.quickmobile.center/ (“EventCenter”) for input of data and other content by You; and (ii) a web-based and/or mobile application-based component (the “App“), a specific instance of which may be customized by You for a specific event or events and made available for download and use by attendees of the event(s) for the period of time and/or the event(s) agreed in writing by Cvent and the Customer and as set forth on the Order Form (the “Term”). The Customer may not resell or use the Licensed Software to provide services to third parties. Additional license fees shall be payable for access and use of the Licensed Software that has not been agreed in writing by Cvent and Customer.
These Terms and the Order Form together comprise a binding written agreement between You and Cvent, effective as of the date of mutual execution of the Order Form by You and Cvent (the “Agreement“).
In the event of any conflict between the provisions contained in an Order Form and these Terms, the provisions in the Order Form shall control (provided, however, that the fact that a provision appears in the Order Form but not these Terms, or in these Terms but not the applicable Order Form, shall not be deemed to be a conflict for purposes of this sentence).
1.3 If the Term spans several years and the Order Form specifies annual fees, then fees are due in each year of the Order Form (“Contract Year“) or as otherwise specified. The Order Form will renew at the end of its Term as specified (and not on a per year basis) for another Term, equal to the length of the Term specified in the Order Form, unless You provide timely notice of nonrenewal as specified in the applicable Order Form.
1.4 Customer Obligations. Customer shall provide any text, images, audio, video, designs or other data, content, materials and information reasonably necessary to enable Cvent to perform the contracted services (“Customer Data“). Failure to provide all Customer Data required for successful operation of the Licensed Software does not invalidate the Agreement or Your obligation to pay for the Licensed Software. Cvent will provide You with documents and templates listing the type and format of the information needed to upload Customer Data into the Licensed Software. Customer Data may also include information or materials which You obtain from third party social networking sites and cause to be presented through the Licensed Software. Cvent may adjust any agreed timetable or delivery schedule, as reasonably necessary, due to any failure or delay by Customer to perform its obligations under this Agreement. Customer will at all times comply fully with all laws, including with respect to the performance of this Agreement, and the collection, use and storage of all Customer Data.
2. THE LICENSED SOFTWARE.
2.1 Customer Data. Customer is solely responsible for the Customer Data and represents and warrants that:
(i) it will not provide to Cvent or transmit through the Licensed Software any Customer Data or any other information, data or material that: (a) infringes or violates any intellectual property rights, publicity/privacy rights, law or regulation; (b) contains any viruses or programming routines intended to damage, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; or (c) contains violent, nude, partially nude, discriminatory, unlawful, infringing, hateful, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos or other content;

b) You acknowledge and agree that:
i. You, Your employees and any agents acting on Your behalf shall abide at all times by such rules and procedures and any changes thereto;
ii. Cvent has no control over such rules and procedures, and cannot be responsible for ensuring performance or availability of any Mobile Marketplace;
iii. Cvent is not liable for any delays in the delivery or deployment of Your Apps caused by changes to, or Your failure to adhere strictly to, any such rules or procedures; and

ii. not to make use of push notifications in a manner which is excessive, as may be determined by the applicable Mobile Marketplace.
2.3 Build Process and Minimum Timelines:
You will be assigned a Customer Success Manager (CSM) shortly after submission of Your signed Order Form. The CSM will collaborate with You to schedule delivery dates for You to provide event information, graphics and other Customer Data for configuring the App for Your event(s) (the “Delivery Schedule“). Cvent is not responsible for delays resulting from any failure by You to comply with the agreed upon Delivery Schedule. If the Order Form spans multiple events, You shall be responsible for notifying Your CSM of each event at least sixty (60) days prior to the desired launch date for such event within the App(s) in order to ensure timely delivery. A timely release of Your App requires that all Customer Data be submitted and approved for submission to the Mobile Marketplaces no later than 14 days prior to Your agreed upon App launch date. The EventCenter shall continue to be available to You to add and modify the Customer Data before, during and after publication.

By engaging Cvent to publish your event for you, you consent to providing Cvent the necessary information to access to the applicable Mobile Marketplace (i.e., through access to the developer account) to publish your App on your behalf. Cvent will use its commercially reasonable effort to obtain approval by the Mobile Marketplace, within the mutually agreed timeline.

i. you will be solely responsible to ensure compliance with all the rules and procedures established by Apple and Google.
ii. you shall secure your Enterprise Distribution License and an Enterprise Developer Account at your sole expense; and maintain it securely with all data privacy procedures in place to safeguard the Customer Data.
iii. Cvent will bear no responsibility for any delays in publishing or rejection of your App by Apple or Google, and any such delay will not modify your obligations to Cvent including, but not limited to, your payment obligations. If your App is rejected by a Mobile Marketplace, you may engage Cvent to publish in Cvent’s container app.
iv. If you terminate or do not renew this Agreement, you must not publish any App created under this Agreement in any manner.
During the term of the Agreement, if Cvent upgrades the version of the App or EventCenter You are using under the Agreement, You will not be charged an upgrade fee.

In the event of any controversy, dispute, or claim arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement or the relationship between the Parties, then prior to proceeding as set forth below, each Party shall first provide prior written notice of such to the other Parties and request a meeting to discuss such controversy, dispute or claim. The Parties shall mutually agree to a time and place for such meeting (which may be conducted via teleconference), provided such meeting shall take place no later than fourteen (14) days after the date of such request. Each Party shall ensure that appropriate level of management shall participate in this meeting, provided each Party shall be represented by at least one employee that is at the director level or higher. If a resolution is not reached at the conclusion of this meeting, the Parties agree a second meeting shall be scheduled no later than seven (7) days thereafter, with participation by an employee of at least the Vice President level or higher.
12.22 Subject to the foregoing, any controversy or claim arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement (including the enforceability or breach thereof, any question regarding its existence, validity or termination) or relating to the Service shall be finally resolved by arbitration under the UNICTRAL Arbitration Rules (“Rules“), which Rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this clause. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator shall not be authorized to award punitive damages with respect to any such claim or controversy, nor shall any party seek punitive damages relating to any matter under, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Service in any other forum. If any arbitration or court action is commenced by either party, the substantially prevailing party in that arbitration or action is entitled to recover from the other party its attorneys’ fees and costs (including arbitration fees and costs and expert witness fees) incurred in connection therewith. The entire arbitration shall be conducted in English and concluded in no later than ninety (90) days after service of the arbitration demand. The arbitral award must be made in English. A written demand for arbitration must be delivered within one (1) year from the date on which the Services to which the claim relates were provided. Failure to comply with this provision shall be a complete bar to any claim. The place of arbitration will be Frankfurt, Germany.
12.23 Notwithstanding anything set forth herein, if a breach or threatened breach by a Party of any of its obligations under this Agreement would give rise to irreparable harm to the other Party for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy, then the other Party hereto shall, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies that may be available to such party at law, at equity or otherwise in respect of such breach, be entitled to seek equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from a court of competent jurisdiction, without first exhausting the remedies set forth in this Section 12.1 or any requirement to (i) post a bond or other security, or (ii) prove actual damages or that monetary damages will not afford an adequate remedy.
12.24 Notices.
