The Events shall utilize ON24’s application platform (the “Platform”) and other various ON24 services and tools. “Services” shall mean the Webcasts, Virtual Environments, the Platform and all other ON24 services and tools used to produce an Event. These “Terms” shall mean these Universal Terms and Conditions, and all exhibits, amendments and attachments hereto. “Work Order” shall mean an individual work order, email, or similar document, submitted by Client and accepted by ON24 for the purchase of Services. Client can order Services from ON24 by entering into a written agreement with ON24 that expressly incorporates by reference these Terms (each an “Agreement”).

a) Client may not use the Services in any manner inconsistent with these Terms.
b) ON24 reserves the right to, upon subsequent execution of a reseller agreement, appoint Client as an authorized, non-exclusive, independent value added reseller of the Services, conditioned upon Client complying with its obligations under this Agreement.

c) Client, if having agreed to a Self Service agreement, will have the right to produce an Event accessing the Platform and Services, and to provide content via the Platform and Services (“Manage an Event”) either directly or through the services of a third party Event manager that Client engages to Manage an Event on behalf of Client. Client shall not utilize the Services in a manner that allows anyone other than Client or Client’s authorized third party Event manager to Manage an Event.
d) ON24 hereby grants to Client, regardless of reseller status, the non-exclusive right to market, promote, support and sell the right to access and use the Platform for the limited purpose of conducting Virtual Environment.

3) Event Production and Services by ON24
a) Client acknowledges that, from time to time, Client may require ON24 to produce an Event or a portion of an Event. In such a case, production of an Event by ON24 will require its utilization of various elements of services. Client shall work with ON24’s representative to establish which elements Client requires for each Event and Client shall submit a Work Order containing those elements to ON24. A Work Order may not be submitted by Customer or any third party.
b) Promptly upon receiving a Work Order, ON24 shall review the Work Order and recommend any adjustments that ON24 reasonably believes are necessary. At any time Client and ON24 determine that a Work Order needs to be adjusted for an Event, the parties shall revise the Work Order based on mutual agreement. Client acknowledges that a successful Event requires a complete and correct Work Order submitted a reasonable amount of time prior to the Event. ON24 shall not be liable for any failures, errors, or omissions, to the Work Order and/or the Event, because of Client’s failure to timely, and accurately, respond to reasonable requests by ON24.
c) Utilizing the Work Order, ON24 will commence producing the Event. Client acknowledges that because of the difficulties in defining all aspects of an Event, it will need to work closely with ON24, including being reasonably available for consultations, if and when any issues arise, and ON24 shall not be liable for any failures, errors, or omissions, to the Work Order and/or the Event, because of Client’s failure to timely, and accurately, respond to reasonable requests by ON24. Client is fully responsible for providing all aspects of content of each Event and for making sure that aspects of content are available to ON24 as ON24 may require from time to time in producing the Event. ON24 will not be responsible for editing any content provided by Client unless otherwise specifically set out in a writing signed by both parties.
d) The Work Order shall also describe in sufficient detail all aspects that Client requires with respect to allowing viewers to view an Event, including such matters as the estimated number of viewers that may view the Event, the registration procedures for viewers, the availability of an Event after production for on-demand viewing, and any other concern or issue of importance to Client.
e) If, in the reasonable opinion of ON24, the number of viewers connected to, or attempting to connect to, an Event exceeds the bandwidth reserved for that Event, ON24 may deny additional connections and disconnect existing viewers. Client agrees to notify ON24, at least 10 days prior to any Event, if Client expects the number of viewers to exceed ON24’s reasonable bandwidth expectations.
4) Billing and Payment
a) Client shall pay all fees specified in an Agreement as well as the fees payable for any additional Services ordered on time.
b) Client understands and agrees that Client incurs the obligation to pay fees by the purchase, not the usage, of Services. Payment obligations are non-cancelable, and except as expressly specified in Exhibit A, paid fees are non-refundable.
c) The fees payable for a Service shall be as set forth in the applicable Fee Schedule(s) included in the applicable Agreement (each a “Fee Schedule”). ON24 maintains several Fee Schedules based on territory and country.

The United Kingdom Fee Schedule (“U.K. Fee Schedule”) shall include the countries of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales (collectively “United Kingdom”). These territorial designations are inclusive and any country not included within the three territory designations above is not covered by the N.A. Fee Schedule, the E.U. Fee Schedule, or the U.K. Fee Schedule and accordingly, an amendment detailing the Fee Schedule for the Services to be performed shall be required. ON24 reserves the right to amend the foregoing Fee Schedule territorial designations, at any time, for any reason, at its sole discretion. ON24 will invoice Client in accordance with the Schedule noted on the Fee Schedule.
d) Should Client order a Service not listed on a Fee Schedule, the price for such Service shall be ON24’s then-current full rate price, which Client agrees to pay.

Absent such a notice, Client shall be deemed to have agreed to the invoiced fees.
g) Any amounts invoiced hereunder that are not received by ON24 by the due date are subject to a finance charge of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all reasonable expenses of collection incurred by ON24, including attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses. Client agrees that ON24 may apply monies paid by Client to any amounts owed by Client under any Agreement.
h) Client shall reimburse ON24 for all third party cancellation fees, penalties, expenses, and costs imposed on ON24 as a result of Client’s cancellation, delaying or rescheduling of Events or Services.
i) If any amount owed by Client is overdue, ON24 may, without liability and without limiting its other rights and remedies, suspend Client’s access to the Platform and ON24’s provisioning of Services under the applicable Agreement, until such amount is paid in full. Any suspension by ON24 under the preceding sentence shall not relieve Client of its payment obligations under the applicable Agreement.
