MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT

Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy

Last Updated July 2022

Welcome! The following consists of the Membership Agreement and the terms and conditions which govern your membership with Secret Sesh (the “Terms”) and use of Secret Sesh’s sites—including without limitation https://secretsesh.com/  (the “Site”), your purchase, possession, or use of any membership benefits or services (collectively, the "Benefits").

Our Privacy Policy, Purchase Policy and any other policies, rules, or guidelines that may be applicable to particular Benefits or features on the Site are also incorporated into the Terms. Through your signature below and by becoming a member of Secret Sesh, you are hereby agreeing to comply with the Terms and consenting to the Terms and the Privacy Policy set forth herein. Please note that the Site is not targeted to children under the age of 21, and they are not permitted to use the Site. We strongly encourage all parents and guardians to monitor their children’s Internet use. If you use the Site, you affirm you are at least 21  years old.

NOTICE REGARDING FUTURE CHANGES TO TERMS:

We may make changes to the Terms at any time. Any changes we make will be effective immediately when we post a revised version of the Terms on the Site. The "Last Updated” date above will tell you when the Terms were last revised. By continuing to use the Site after that date, you agree to the changes.

To the extent that these Terms differ from a prior version of the Terms which you previously agreed to, this version of the Terms supersedes and governs your membership.
 

NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER:

The Terms contain an arbitration agreement and class action waiver. Specifically, you and we agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your Membership, the Benefits, the Terms, your use of the Site, products or services sold, distributed, issued, or serviced by us or through us, will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, rather than in court. By agreeing to individual arbitration, you and we each waive any right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration. This agreement and waiver—along with some limited exceptions—is explained below.

COVID-19 WARNING:

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting a communicable disease or illness—including, without limitation, exposure to COVID-19 or any other bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether that exposure occurs before, during, or after any member event, and regardless of how caused or contracted—and you hereby waive any and all claims and potential claims against Secret Sesh, and any potential event organizer (“Event Organizer”) and against any companies affiliated with Secret Sesh or the Event Organizer—relating to such risks, hazards, and dangers.

Membership Registration

You may browse the Site without registering for an account. You will be required to apply for membership with Secret Sesh to use certain features of the Site and access the Benefits.  By your signature below, you agree to be bound by the Terms. Your account username may not include the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, or be offensive, vulgar, or obscene. Your account username and password are personal to you. You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your username and password, and for all activities and Benefits (including purchases) that are conducted through your account. You may not transfer or sell access to your account. We will not be liable for any harm related to disclosure of your username or password or the use by anyone else of your username or password. You may not use another user’s account without that user’s permission. You will immediately notify us in writing if you discover any unauthorized use of your account or other account-related security breach. We may require you to change your username and/or password if we believe your account is no longer secure, or if we receive a complaint that your username violates someone else’s rights. You will have no ownership in your account or your username. We may refuse registration, membership, access passes, Benefits, cancel an account, or deny access to the Site for any reason.

Making Purchases

Please review our Purchase Policy, which (in addition to the Terms) will govern your purchase of any daily membership fee, events or products through the Site, including any refunds or exchanges. We may impose conditions on your use of any coupon, promotional code or credit. You will pay all charges incurred by you or any users of your account and credit card (or other applicable payment mechanism) at the price(s) in effect when such charges are incurred, including any applicable taxes. You may only use credit or debit cards, gift cards, or vouchers that belong to you or to people who expressly authorize you to use such payment methods.  You may not attempt to conceal your identity by using multiple Internet Protocol addresses or email addresses, or by any other means, to conduct transactions on the Site. You will not hold us liable if you do not comply with laws related to your transactions. We may provide law enforcement with information you provide to us related to your transactions to assist in any investigation or prosecution of you. If we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide during any registration, ordering, purchase, sale, authentication, delivery, payment, or remittance process, or any other process, or if we are no longer able to verify or authorize your credit card or bank account information, your Membership may be cancelled, we may refuse to honor all pending and future access pass purchases made with those credit card or bank accounts and/or via any online accounts associated with those credit card or bank accounts. We may also prohibit you from using the Site. You will not use bot technology to search for, reserve, or purchase access through the Site; for the avoidance of doubt, this specifically prohibits you from using automated purchasing software on the Site, and prohibits you from circumventing any security measure, access control system, or other technological control or measure on the Site that is used to enforce posted event purchasing limits or to maintain the integrity of posted online purchasing order rules.

Forums and User Content

We may host member reviews, message boards, blog feeds, social media feeds, and other forums found on the Site (collectively, Forums), and you may be able to submit suggestions, reviews, concepts, audio and video recordings, photographs, artwork, or other materials to the Forums or other areas of the Site (User Content). By submitting User Content, you certify that you are at least 21 years old and you own all rights to your User Content. If you submit User Content to the Site, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free right and license to use, reproduce, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, display, archive, and commercialize your User Content, in our sole discretion, in all formats and in all media channels now known or hereinafter discovered, without any compensation or acknowledgment to you or anyone else. This license will not affect your ownership in your User Content, including the right to grant additional licenses to your User Content, except if it conflicts with the Terms. We are not obligated to post, display or otherwise use any User Content, or to attribute your User Content to you. You will not make or authorize any claim against us that our use of your User Content infringes any of your rights. Statements, opinions, and reviews posted by members in a Forum may be inaccurate, offensive, obscene, threatening, or harassing. We do not endorse and are not responsible for these postings. We will not be liable for any loss or harm caused by the posting or your reliance on information obtained through the postings. You will be responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting it. By submitting User Content, you represent to us that (a) you own, or have the necessary permission to submit the User Content and to grant the licenses to us under this section, and (b) you have the written permission of every identifiable person in the User Content to use that person’s name and likeness in the manner contemplated by the Site and the Terms or, if the person is a minor, the written permission of the minor’s parent or legal guardian. We will have the right (but not the obligation) to monitor the Site, the Forums, and the User Content, and to disclose any User Content and the circumstances surrounding its submission in order to operate the Site properly, or to protect ourselves, our sponsors, and our users, or to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests. If we are notified that your User Content does not comply with the Terms, we may investigate the allegation and may decide to remove your User Content and cancel your account. We may also hold you liable for any User Content that infringes the rights of a third party and require you to pay or reimburse us for any amounts we believe are necessary to resolve any complaint.

Claims of Copyright Infringement on the Site

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the DMCA), if you believe in good faith that any content on the Site infringes your copyright, you may send us a notice requesting that the content be removed. The notice must include: (a) your (or your agent’s) physical or electronic signature; (b) identification of the copyrighted work on our Site that is claimed to have been infringed (or a representative list if multiple copyrighted works are included in one notification); (c) identification of the content that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, including information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the content on the Site; (d) your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available); (e) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the content in the manner complained of is not authorized by you or your agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you or your agent is authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, you may send us a counter-notice. You may read more information about the DMCA at www.copyright.gov. Notices and counter-notices should be sent to Secret Sesh by contacting us. There can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. It is our policy to terminate, in appropriate circumstances, repeat infringers’ access rights to the Site.

Links

The Site may contain links to other websites that may not be owned or operated by us. The fact that we may link to those websites does not indicate any approval or endorsement of those websites. We have no control over those websites. We are not responsible for the content of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites. We strongly encourage you to become familiar with the terms of use and practices of any linked website. Your use of other websites is at your own risk and is subject to the terms of those websites. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from the Site or other sites) is free of viruses, worms, Trojan horses, defects, date bombs, time bombs, and other items of a destructive nature.

Parental Controls

We cannot prohibit minors from visiting our Site and must rely on parents and guardians to decide what materials are appropriate for children to view and purchase. There are parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. You can find information about parental controls at www.onguardonline.gov. We do not endorse the products or services listed at that website.

Access from Outside the United States

The Site is directed to people residing in the United States. We do not represent that Content available on or through the Site is appropriate or available in other locations. We may limit the availability of the Site or any service or product described on the Site to any person or geographic area at any time. If you choose to access the Site from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk.

Limitation of Liability

Objects may fly into the spectator area during an event. Despite spectator shielding, injury can occur. Stay alert at all times before, during, and after any event or performance. You and your guest/s voluntarily assume all risks and danger incidental to the event for which the event access is issued, whether occurring before, during or after the event, and you waive any claims for personal injury or death against us and all of our respective parents, affiliated entities, agents, officers, directors, owners, and employees on behalf of yourself and any accompanying guest. You bear all risks of inclement weather. Event date and time are subject to change. Please see the Limitation of Liability section in the Terms and Conditions for additional limits on our liability.
You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting a communicable disease or illness—including, without limitation, exposure to COVID-19 or any other bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether that exposure occurs before, during, or after the event, and regardless of how caused or contracted—and you hereby waive any and all claims and potential claims against Secret Sesh—and against any companies affiliated with Secret Sesh—relating to such risks, hazards, and dangers.

License; Ejection, Cancelation; No Redemption Value

You agree to comply with all of Secret Sesh’s applicable rules, policies, terms, and conditions. Secret Sesh reserves the right, without refund of any amount paid, to refuse admission to, or eject, any person whose conduct management deems disorderly, who uses vulgar or abusive language, or who fails to comply with rules, posted or otherwise. Breach of terms or rules will terminate your license to attend the event without refund. Event access is a revocable license and admission may be refused. Event access is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.

Recording, Transmission and Exhibition

You agree that the event for which you purchase access is a private event, but that your appearance and actions inside and outside the venue where the event occurs are public in nature, and that you have no expectation of privacy with regard to your actions or conduct at the event. You grant permission to us, our partners, licensees and assigns, including but not limited to our brand and media partners, to utilize your name, image, likeness, acts, poses, plays, appearance, movements, and statements in any live or recorded audio, video, or photographic display or other transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the event (regardless of whether before, during or after play or performance) for any purpose, in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed, without further authorization from, or compensation to, you or anyone acting on your behalf. In the case of virtual events, you may view the virtual event solely for your own personal purpose. You may not record, copy, publicly exhibit, transmit, or distribute any virtual event through any means, resell views of any virtual event, or allow others to log into your account for the purpose of watching a virtual event.

You Are Subject to Search

You and your belongings may be searched on entry to any member event. You consent to such searches and waive any related claims that may arise. If you elect not to consent to such searches, you may be denied entry to the event without refund or other compensation. Under certain facility rules, certain items may not be brought into the premises, including without limitation: firearms, alcohol, drugs, controlled substances, cameras, recording devices, laser pointers, strobe lights, irritants (e.g., artificial noisemakers), bundles and containers.

NON-TRANSFERABLE; Unlawful Resale of Access

All event access rights to Secret Sesh events are NON-TRANSFERABLE. Unlawful resale (or attempted unlawful resale) of event access, including but not limited to counterfeit or copy of access passes, is grounds for seizure and cancelation of membership without compensation. In addition, we reserve the right to restrict or deny purchasing privileges to anyone that we determine to be, or to have been, in violation of our policies, terms and conditions. Event access may not be used for advertising, promotions, contests, or sweepstakes, unless formal written authorization is given by us.

Violation of the Terms

We may investigate any violation of the Terms, including the unauthorized use of the Site. We may provide law enforcement with information you provide to us related to your transactions to assist in any investigation or prosecution of you. We may take legal action that we feel is appropriate. You agree that monetary damages may not provide us a sufficient remedy, and that we may pursue injunctive or other relief for your violation of the Terms. If we determine that you have violated the Terms or the law, or for any other reason or for no reason, we may cancel your membership, delete all your User Content, and prevent you from accessing the Site at any time without notice to you. If that happens, you may no longer use the Site or any Content. You will still be bound by your obligations under the Terms. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for termination of your access to the Site or to your membership or any related information, and we will not be required to make the Site or your account or any related information available to you. We may also cancel any access acquired through your membership. We may refuse to honor pending and future purchases made from all accounts we believe may be associated with you or cancel an access order associated with any person we believe to be acting with you, or exercise any other remedy available to us. You agree that your abusive use of the Site may cause damage and harm to us, including impaired goodwill, lost revenue, and increased expenses. You also agree that monetary damages for your abusive use of the Site are difficult to determine, and that if you, or others acting with you, will be jointly and severally liable for damages.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OR INFORMATION OF THIRD PARTIES, AND YOU RELEASE US FROM ANY CLAIMS AND DAMAGES, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE AGAINST ANY SUCH THIRD PARTIES. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542, WHICH SAYS: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER FOR (a) ANY FAILURE OF ANOTHER USER OF THE SITE OR ANY EVENT TO CONFORM TO THE CODES OF CONDUCT, (b) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF OUR SITE OR THE BENEFITS, (c) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (d) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, WORMS, TROJAN HORSES, DEFECTS, DATE BOMBS, TIME BOMBS, OR OTHER ITEMS OF A DESTRUCTIVE NATURE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH OUR SITE, (e) ANY ERRORS, MISTAKES, INACCURACIES, OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT, OR (f) ANY LOST, STOLEN, OR DAMAGED ACCESS, OR THE FAILURE OF A VENUE TO HONOR ACCESS. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SITE IS TO STOP USING THE SITE. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. THE ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN US IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US. IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS' FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE. OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED UNDER THIS PARAGRAPH TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, AND THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH WILL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW PERMITS THE RECOVERY OF DAMAGES, ATTORNEYS' FEES, OR COSTS OTHERWISE PROHIBITED UNDER THIS PARAGRAPH.  THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH THAT (a) PROHIBIT DAMAGES TO BE MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED, (b) IMPOSE A DAMAGES LIMITATION OF THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) OR THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST TWELVE MONTHS, AND (c) PROHIBIT THE RECOVERY OF ATTORNEYS' FEES AND COSTS, DO NOT APPLY IN CERTAIN STATES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION NEW JERSEY, TO CLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER STATUTES PERMITTING SUCH RECOVERY.

We reserve the right to take exclusive control and defense of any claim, and you will cooperate fully with us in asserting any available defenses.

Mandatory Arbitration Agreement/Class Action Waiver

YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR MEMBERSHIP, THE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SITE, OR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES SOLD, DISTRIBUTED, ISSUED, OR SERVICED BY OR THROUGH US—IRRESPECTIVE OF WHEN THAT DISPUTE, CLAIM, OR CONTROVERSY AROSE—WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH IN THE TERMS, RATHER THAN IN COURT. YOU AND WE THEREBY EACH AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND AGREE THAT YOU AND WE MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

Exceptions
The arbitration agreement and class action waiver set forth in this Section shall be subject to these limited exceptions:
You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims apply.
• If a claim involves the conditional license granted to you as described in the Ownership of Content and Grant of Conditional License section above, either of us may file a lawsuit in a federal or state court located within Los Angeles County, California, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
• In the event that the arbitration agreement in the Terms is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us (except for small claims court actions) may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Los Angeles County, California, and you and we each consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
• You and we each retain the right to participate in class-wide settlement of claims.

Informal Dispute Resolution
You and we each recognize and agree that good faith, informal efforts to resolve disputes often result in prompt, low-cost, and mutually beneficial outcomes. Therefore, you and we each agree that, before either of us may commence an arbitration or assert a claim in small claims court, you and we will engage in the following informal dispute resolution process:
• The party seeking to initiate a claim in arbitration or small claims court (“claimant”) must give written notice to the other party (“respondent”). To notify us that you intend to initiate informal dispute resolution, you must send an email to atproviding: your full name; the email address and mailing address associated with your Secret Sesh membership; your counsel’s name and contact information, if you are represented by counsel; and a brief description of your claim(s) and the relief sought. To notify you that we intend to initiate informal dispute resolution, we will email you at the email address associated with your membership and provide a brief description of our claim(s) and the relief sought, and our counsel’s name and contact information.
• You and we will then personally meet and confer, via teleconference or videoconference, in a good faith effort to informally resolve any claim covered by this mutual arbitration agreement. If either you or us is represented by counsel, that counsel may participate in the informal dispute resolution conference.
• All offers, promises, conduct, and statements made in the course of the informal dispute resolution process by any party, its agents, employees, and attorneys are confidential and not admissible for any purpose in any subsequent proceeding, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the informal dispute resolution process.
• The informal dispute resolution conference shall occur within sixty (60) days of receipt of the written notice described above, unless an extension is mutually agreed upon by you and us. If, after participating in that conference, you and we have been unable to resolve the dispute, the claimant may commence an arbitration or assert a claim in small claims court in accordance with this arbitration agreement.
• Any statute of limitations will be tolled while you and we engage in the informal dispute resolution process described in this section.

Governing Law; Interpretation and Enforcement
The arbitration agreement in the Terms is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq.) (“FAA"), including its procedural provisions, in all respects. This means that the FAA governs, among other things, the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement and all of its provisions, including, without limitation, the class action waiver. State arbitration laws do not govern in any respect. Further, you and we each agree that the Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by and construed in accordance with federal law to the fullest extent possible.

Arbitration Generally; Relief Available
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited pursuant to the FAA. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages) and must follow the Terms as a court would. For the avoidance of doubt, the arbitrator can award public injunctive relief if authorized by law and warranted by the individual claim(s).

Attorneys’ Fees
You are responsible for your own attorneys’ fees; we will not pay any attorneys’ fees unless ordered to do so by the arbitrator. For the avoidance of doubt, in cases where a statute gives you the right to recover attorneys’ fees if you prevail, the arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees pursuant to that statute.

Delegation; Interpretation
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable; however, in the event of a dispute about which particular version of this Agreement you agreed to, a court will decide that specific question. This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted and will survive termination of the Terms.

Limited Right to Appeal
As explained above, court review of the arbitrator’s decision is limited pursuant to the FAA; however, the Terms provide a limited right to appeal the arbitrator’s decision to a panel of, as set forth in this sub-section. Specifically, in the event that the arbitrator awards injunctive relief against either you or us, the party against whom injunctive relief was awarded may—within 21 days of the arbitrator’s final decision—appeal that decision to, in accordance with the following procedure:
• Except as otherwise provided by the Terms, the appeal will be conducted pursuant to the Optional Arbitration Appeal Procedure, available at 
• To commence an appeal, a party must submit the Demand for Arbitration Form available at , and must also provide notice to the other party in the manner described above in this section.
• The appeal panel will consist of arbitrators who are either (a) retired state or federal judges or (b) licensed attorneys with at least 20 years of active litigation experience and substantial expertise in the substantive laws applicable to the subject matter of the dispute.
• The appeal panel will conduct a de novo review of the arbitrator’s decision. 
• Except as provided in the FAA, there will be no right of appeal from the appeal panel’s decision.

Severability

It is our belief that the Terms do not contain any provision contrary to law. However, if any part of the Terms is determined to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, you agree that: (a) that part shall nevertheless be enforced to the extent permissible in order to effect the intent of the Terms, and (b) the remaining parts shall be deemed valid and enforceable.
