The sponsorship process for Event Organizers/Event Planners

Users who sign up as an event organizer/planner on our site are responsible for their own event listings. HapBack reservies the right to remove any listings they deem unfit for the site for any reason. USERS OF THE SITE WHO CREATE EVENT AND HAP LISTINGS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT ALL DETAILS OF THEIR LISTING ACCURATELY REFLECT THE EVENT AND ITS ASSOCIATED SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. We understand that circumstances can arise which cause an Event or a Hap to not turn out exactly as expected, and we will fully investigate any issue of misrepresentation. HapBack reserves the right to make final decision about whether an event or a sponsorship has been misrepresented. In that case, the creator of the event listing is responsible for refunding the full amount of the sponsorship listing. If circumstances of the event or sponsorship change before or at the time of the event, we ask that event organizers make their best effort to comunicate those changes to us so that we can evaluate whether or not we need to contact the sponsor and/or obtain a refund.

The sponsorship process for Sponsors

Users who sign up as a Sponsor must purchase sponsorships at their own risk. If a sponsorship is grossly misrepresented, HapBack will take measures to obtain a refund, however we do not guarentee one. HapBack reserves the right to determine which events and sponsorships have been "grossly misrepresented". In order to better protect Sponsors on our site, we have included fields in the event form that indicate whether an event's attendance could vary. If this is the case, we ask Sponsors to use caution when sponsoring these events.

Pricing

HapBack will take a 10% commission from all sponsorships. This amount will be deducted from the final amount passed on to the event organizer. This amount will not be added on top of the list price for events. It is the event organizer's duty to price their events with this 10% fee in mind. HapBack reserves the right to take a fee of up to 15% for "in kind" sponsorships that we have to order or coordinate in any way. Please note that some items (for in kind sponsorships) will have prices that are incompatable with this system because the items purchased are not priced perfectly for the system. It is the event organizer's responsibility to indicate which items should have thier quantities changed in order to optimize their funds given our pricing model. If we do not receive this information from the event organizer or there is still variation in the price levels, HapBack reserves the right to keep the monetary difference between the cost to purchase the in kind items plus our sponsorship fee and the list price of the sponsorship.
