Hi! These terms and conditions (the “Event Terms”) govern attendance and participation in events listed on the Rate233 website, including parties, promotions, and contests.
As used throughout these Event Terms, the terms “we”, “us”, “our”, and “Rate233” refer to Rate233(Next Infotech Ltd). The term “Rate233 Event” means an event, gathering, promotion, contest, meet-up or the like that is organized or hosted by Rate233. “Non-Rate233 Event” means an event, gathering, promotion, contest, meet-up or the like that is organized by someone other than Rate233 but that may appear or be listed on the Rate233 website.
In order to participate or attend a Rate233 Event, you must first agree to these Event Terms. If, after reading these Event Terms, you find that you cannot or will not agree to any terms or conditions within it, please do not RSVP to or attend any Rate233 Event. If you RSVP to any Rate233 or Non-Rate233 Event through the Rate233 site (e.g., by clicking “I’m In!” “RSVP,” or messaging an event organizer), you signal that you have read, understand, and agree to these Event Terms.
if you’re a Rate233 employee or agent, any inconsistencies between these Event Terms and other agreements you may have entered into with Rate233 will be resolved in favor of your employment agreements or contracts.
Our foreign language skills aren’t perfect, so while we translate these Event Terms into other languages for your convenience, any inconsistencies among the different versions will be resolved in favor of the English version. Similarly, any inconsistencies between these Event Terms and the Terms of Service will be resolved in favor of the Event Terms.
You represent that (a) you are at least 21 years old (or otherwise over the legal drinking age in your jurisdiction), (b) you have the requisite power and authority to enter into these Event Terms, and (c) you have read and understood these Event Terms as well as Rate233’s Terms of Service and Content Guidelines.
Rate233 and its sponsors and vendors sometimes take photos and videos at Rate233 Events, and later use them for promotional purposes. By participating or attending any Rate233 Event, you agree that you may appear in some of these photos and videos, and you authorize their use in this fashion. On the flip side, if you take any photos or videos of attendees at a Rate233 Event and provide them to us, you authorize us to use them in the same fashion, and represent that the attendees that appear in your photos and videos have also consented to such use.
We don’t control Non-Rate233 Events or the people that organize them. It’s possible that organizers or attendees of Non-Rate233 Events will take photos or shoot videos in which you appear and then post them online (including, possibly, the Rate233 site). By RSVP’ing to a Non-Rate233 Event through the Rate233 site, you authorize Rate233’s use of such media for promotional purposes.
(a) Assumption of Risk. Although we try to create a safe environment at Rate233 Events, accidents or other bad things happen, even to good people. We ask that you do your part to help limit the possibility that you might get injured at a Rate233 Event.
You agree to carefully consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and to take reasonable precautions before you choose to attend or participate at a Rate233 Event. For example, you should ensure that you are in good physical health before engaging in any physical activity at a Rate233 Event, and you should always drink responsibly given the risks associated with drunk driving and participating in activities while your judgment is impaired. Second, please note that some of the other Rate233 Event guests may be less responsible than you, and may themselves create additional risk to you despite their best intentions.
In sum, you understand that your attendance and participation at Rate233 Events is voluntary, and you agree to assume responsibility for any resulting injuries to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.
By the same token, you agree that Rate233 is not responsible for any injuries or accidents that you might sustain at Non-Rate233 Events listed on the Rate233 site.
(b) Release of Liability. You (for yourself, your heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, and anyone else who might make a claim on your behalf) hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue Rate233 and its respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, vendors, sponsors, and volunteers from any and all claims, demands, causes of action, damages, losses or expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees) which may arise out of, result from, or relate in any way to your attendance at any Rate233 or Non-Rate233 Event, except, of course, for any gross negligence or willful misconduct on our part.
(c) Indemnity. By the same token, you agree to indemnify and hold Rate233, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to, related to, or connected with your attendance or conduct at any Rate233 or Non-Rate233 Event.
While we hope not to, Rate233 may prohibit your attendance at any Rate233 Event at any time if you fail to abide by these Event Terms, the Terms of Service, or for any or no reason, without notice or liability of any kind. In the event of any termination, whether by you or us, Sections 1, 3-9 of these Event Terms will continue in full force and effect.
Ghanaian law will govern these Event Terms, as well as any claim, cause of action or dispute that might arise between you and Rate233 (a “Claim”), without regard to conflict of law provisions. FOR ANY CLAIM BROUGHT BY EITHER PARTY, YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT AND CONSENT TO THE PERSONAL AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION IN, AND THE EXCLUSIVE VENUE OF, THE COURTS OF ACCRA, GHANA.
You agree that you will not represent yourself as an employee, representative, or agent of Rate233 (unless, of course, you are actually employed by Rate233, in which case these Event Terms will govern your participation in any Rate233 Event to the extent such Terms are not inconsistent with Rate233’s standard employment agreements or policies). We reserve the right to cancel any Rate233 Event at any time, for any reason, and without liability or prejudice. Any failure on Rate233’s part to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Event Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Event Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Event Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
From time to time, members of the Rate233 Community organize their own meet-ups and events (sometimes called “UREs” or “Unofficial Rate233 Events”). Although Rate233 representatives sometimes join in the fun, UREs are Non-Rate233 Events and are not sponsored or endorsed by Rate233, even when they are promoted on the Rate233 website. If you organize a URE, you agree to
(a) promote it as such, and
(b) not create the impression that it is sponsored or endorsed by Rate233.
All terms and conditions relating to Non-Rate233 Events apply equally to UYEs.
