a) ON24 owns and operates an application platform (the “Platform”) that facilitates the creation and management of (i) broadcasts of streaming audio and/or video over the internet (each a “Webcast”, “Webinar” or “Event”), and (ii) multimedia content hubs, content landing pages, virtual environments, virtual events, and virtual trade shows (each a “Virtual Environment”). Client can order the provisioning of Webinars, Virtual Environments and/or other services from ON24 (collectively, the “Services”) by entering into a Master Services Agreement, Subscription Agreement, Services Agreement or a similar written agreement with ON24 that expressly incorporates by reference these Universal Terms and Conditions (such terms and conditions, these “Terms”, and together with one of the foregoing agreements, an “Agreement”). “Work Orders” and “Order Forms” are additional ordering documents that may be executed pursuant to an Agreement for the purchase of Services by Client (and which upon execution form part of such Agreement). These Terms shall remain in full force and effect for so long as any Agreement which incorporates by reference these Terms remains in effect.
2. Use of Services
a) Client may be provisioned one or more accounts on the Platform (“Accounts”) in accordance with an Agreement. Accounts may only be used by Client and its employees and subcontractors acting on behalf of Client to create and manage Webinars and Virtual Environments to be viewed, accessed or otherwise used by individuals who register for or access Client’s Webinars and/or Virtual Environments (with each of those accessing a particular Webinar or Virtual Environment being an “Attendee” or “Viewer” of the same). Client shall safeguard login credentials to the Accounts and shall be responsible for all use of Services through the Accounts.
b) An Agreement may specify a certain number of Attendees that are authorized to attend a particular Service at no additional charge (the “Included Attendees”). In such a case, should Client run a Service that is attended by more Attendees than the Included Attendees, additional fees may be payable in accordance with such Agreement. In no event shall the number of Attendees connected to a particular Service exceed 2,500 concurrent Attendees for a Live Experience (defined below) or 1,000 concurrent Attendees otherwise, unless ON24 has approved a large event request ticket for an additional number of Attendees in accordance with the process below (in each case such number of Attendees being the “Attendee Limit”). If the total number of Attendees connected to or attempting to connect to a Service exceeds the applicable Attendee Limit (even if the Included Attendees for such Service is larger than the Attendee Limit), then ON24 shall have the right to deny connections in excess of the Attendee Limit. On each occasion that Client would like to have more Attendees than the Attendee Limit for a Service as specified above, Client shall submit a large event request ticket via its Platform Account at least 10 business days in advance of the applicable Service. If Client timely submits such a ticket, ON24 will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate a reasonable Attendee Limit increase, which accommodation may include proposing to reschedule the applicable Service to a non-peak usage period. To the extent available, (i) additional Attendees over the Attendee Limit amount are to be purchased in blocks of 500 in accordance with the relevant Agreement and (ii) additional Attendees over 10,000 will be priced by quote. The term “Live Experience” means the usage by Client of a Webinar, Virtual Environment or other applicable Service at a specified time and date for a specified duration of time.
3. Use Restrictions
a) Client agrees to use the Platform and Services in compliance with applicable law and shall not and shall ensure Attendees do not: (i) permit any third party to use the Platform or Services except as permitted herein or in an Agreement; (ii) modify, reverse engineer, disassemble, or decompile the Platform, or cause or permit others to do so; (iii) use the Platform or Services in order to (A) build a competitive product or service, or (B) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Platform or Services; (iv) remove or modify any title, trademark, copyright and/or restricted rights notice or label from the Platform or Services; (v) create derivative works based on the Platform or otherwise violate ON24’s intellectual property rights; (vi) use Platform or Service on a service bureau basis, or run or perform Services on behalf of a third party; (vii) resell Services (unless pursuant to an Agreement that expressly authorizes Client to resell Services); (viii) use the Platform or Services in any manner inconsistent with these Terms or an Agreement; or (ix) use the Platform or Services to transmit or display any infringing, indecent, or illegal material, including any material that violates the rights of any third party. ON24 reserves the right to suspend Client’s access to the Platform and Services upon notice to Client if ON24 reasonably suspects or becomes aware of a breach of an Agreement, including this Section 3, by Client. ON24 agrees to promptly restore access following its confirmation that there is no active breach by Client.
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 or used by Client. All fees shall be paid in U.S. Dollars, unless another currency is specified in the applicable Agreement.
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 hereto, paid fees are non-refundable.
c) The fees payable for a Service shall be as set forth in the applicable fee schedule included in the applicable Agreement (each a “Fee Schedule”).
d) Should Client order or use a Service not listed on a Fee Schedule, the price for such Service shall be ON24’s then-current standard price, which Client hereby agrees to pay.
e) All fees are exclusive of taxes, levies, or duties that may be imposed by taxing authorities. Other than taxes based on ON24’s income, Client shall be responsible for paying all taxes, levies, or duties applicable to its purchases from ON24, even if such amounts are not listed in an Agreement. Client shall not be responsible for paying the same to the extent Client has provided ON24 with a valid tax exemption or direct pay certificate that exempts Client from such payment. Client shall reimburse ON24 for any taxes paid on behalf of Client.
f) If an Agreement does not include billing and payment terms, then with respect to that Agreement (i) ON24 shall invoice Client for all fees payable thereunder upon its execution, and (ii) Client shall pay all fees within 30 days of receipt of invoice. Client is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to ON24 and for notifying ON24 of any changes to such information. Client must provide ON24 with written notice of any dispute or disagreement with invoiced fees within 30 days of the date of the applicable invoice.
g) Any amounts invoiced that are not received by ON24 by their 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) If any amount owed by Client is overdue, ON24 may, without liability and without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Client’s unpaid fee obligations under such Agreement so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Services under such Agreement until such amount is paid in full.
5. Confidential Information
a) “Confidential Information” means all confidential information disclosed by a party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Confidential Information of the Client includes Attendee Data (as defined below). Confidential Information of ON24 includes the Services, the Platform, and pricing and other terms related to Services presented to Client by ON24. These Terms and all Agreements shall be Confidential Information of each party. The Receiving Party shall not use or disclose any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party except to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under an Agreement or otherwise with the prior written consent of the other party or as required by law.
b) These Terms impose no obligation upon the Receiving Party with respect to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information which the Receiving Party can establish: (i) was, prior to its receipt from the Disclosing Party, in the possession of, or rightfully known by, the Receiving Party, without an obligation to maintain its confidentiality; (ii) is or becomes generally known to the public without violation of these Terms or without a violation of an obligation of confidentiality owed to the Disclosing Party; (iii) is obtained by the Receiving Party in good faith from a third party having the right to disclose it without an obligation of confidentiality; or (iv) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.
c) Each party understands that the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information constitutes valuable business assets of the Disclosing Party and the unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information may irreparably harm the Disclosing Party. In the event of breach or threatened breach of obligations pertaining to Confidential Information by the Receiving Party, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief and any other remedy available at law or equity.
d) Client shall not publish the results of any benchmark of the Services’ performance, except with ON24’s prior written consent.
6. Ownership; Client Information
a) “Intellectual Property” means patents, copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, trade dress, domain names, know-how, technology, inventions, methods and processes, trade secrets, and all other intellectual property and proprietary rights, and all developments, enhancements, derivatives, improvements, modifications or extensions thereof, anywhere in the world.
b) As between ON24 and Client, ON24 retains all right, title and interest in and to the Platform, the Services, all other Intellectual Property owned, acquired or developed by ON24, and any improvement or modification thereto.

c) If Client or any Attendee provides any suggestions, ideas, feedback, improvements, or recommendations to ON24 relating to the Platform or other ON24 proprietary rights (collectively, “Submissions”) Client hereby grants ON24 a nonexclusive, perpetual, sublicensable license to exercise all Intellectual Property rights in such Submissions.
d) As between ON24 and Client, Client retains all right, title and interest in and to all materials and data it enters into the Platform or otherwise provides to ON24 under an Agreement, including slides, audio files, video files, branding elements, recordings generated from a Webinar, and photographs (“Client Materials”), any contact information or other personally identifiable information of Attendees of Client’s Webinars and Virtual Environments (“Attendee Data”) and all other Intellectual Property of Client (together with the Client Materials and Attendee Data, the “Client Information”).
e) Client hereby grants ON24 the right to use Client Information to the extent needed by ON24 to provide the Services to Client. Client acknowledges that ON24 does not exercise any control over the content of Client Information. Client shall bear the sole responsibility to ensure that all Client Information, and Client’s use and collection thereof, complies with all applicable laws and regulations. ON24 has no obligation, and expressly disclaims any obligation to review Client Information for accuracy or for any other reason.
f) Client agrees that ON24 may de-identify or aggregate Client Information and other data related to the Services to render it Anonymous Data, which may then be used for the purposes of operating and improving ON24’s services and operations, and other research, analytics, marketing and related purposes. ON24 may maintain Anonymous Data as part of its own records and information and such data shall no longer be subject to these Terms or an Agreement. “Anonymous Data” means data that has been de-identified and/or aggregated with other data to such an extent that Client and Attendees are no longer identifiable, and individuals are no longer identified, identifiable, linked or linkable, or otherwise ascertainable by reference to or combination with other datasets.
g) ON24 has implemented commercially reasonable safeguards to protect the Platform and the Client Information (defined above) that ON24 processes via the Platform.

h) Client may access and download Client Information related to a Webinar that is stored in the Platform by accessing their account during the period in which such Webinar is made available on an on-demand basis as listed in the applicable Agreement (“On-Demand Access Period”).
