Free Online Invitations
The Message Center is a feature within an invitation, or event, that enables a user to communicate directly within the Service with an event host and selected invited guests. Messages are unique to an event and communications in Message Center are limited to hosts and guests specific to that unique event. Messages may be directed through private chat and/or group chat. By accessing the “Messages” tab within the invitation, the user may create and send messages within the Service to the event host and selected guests as they determine. Users can initiate messaging for dissemination of both private (1:1) and group (1:many) messages. Users will send and receive messages within the Service and may also opt-in to be notified by email of receipt of an in-Service message.
Evite Pro Subscription
Subscription. Evite offers registered users the opportunity to purchase an Evite Pro subscription providing the ability for the user to send online invitations and correspondence, for a certain duration (usually 12 months excluding any free trial period) (the “Subscription Term”), free of any advertising, for up to 2500 guests per event invitation. An Evite Pro subscription is purchased on a per user account basis. Evite reserves the right to change the pricing of the Evite Pro subscription at any time. In the event of a price change, Evite will post the new pricing for the Evite Pro subscription and attempt to notify you in advance by sending an email to the address you have registered for your Evite user account. If you do not wish to accept a price change, you may cancel your Evite Pro subscription as described in these Terms of Service.
Recurring Charges. By providing payment information for your Evite Pro subscription, you are agreeing to pay a non-refundable subscription fee, and any applicable taxes and service fees ("Subscription Fee") for your use of Evite Pro. The Subscription Fee will be charged to your credit card (the "Payment Method") at the start of your Subscription Term, and automatically at the beginning of each subsequent renewal period (the “Renewal Term”) unless you cancel your Evite Pro subscription. The Subscription Fee charged to your Payment Method may vary from year-to-year due to changes in your subscription plan or applicable taxes, and you expressly authorize Evite to charge your Payment Method for this amount. All payments must be made in United States dollars.
Auto-renewals and Trials. If you sign up for a free trial of Evite Pro (the “Trial”), the Trial period will begin on the date you activate the Trial and end after the stated trial period. Unless you cancel prior to such date, your Subscription Term will begin and you will be charged a Subscription Fee. IF YOUR ACCOUNT IS SET TO AUTO-RENEWAL OR IS IN A TRIAL PERIOD AND YOU HAVE PROVIDED A METHOD OF PAYMENT TO US FOR THE SERVICES, WE MAY CHARGE YOU AUTOMATICALLY AT THE END OF THE TRIAL OR FOR THE RENEWAL, UNLESS YOU NOTIFY US THAT YOU WANT TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION. The Evite Pro subscription is effective from date of purchase and will automatically renew for a Renewal Term of the same duration unless you cancel prior to expiration of the Subscription Term or Renewal Term in progress. Evite reserves the right to cancel your Trial at any time if it is discovered you do not meet the eligibility requirements for such Trial (e.g., Trials that are only available to small businesses or registered nonprofits).
Disputes; No Refunds. If there are any discrepancies in billing, you hereby waive your right to dispute such discrepancies if you do not notify Evite within 60 days after they first appear on an account statement. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL. No refund will be due if your account or subscription are terminated due to your violation of these Terms of Service.
THE EVITE PRO SUBSCRIPTION IS PERSONAL TO THE ACCOUNT HOLDER AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED OR ASSIGNED. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INTERNET ACCESS CHARGES. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER FOR INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE INTERNET DATA USAGE CHARGES. You agree to immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org of any unauthorized use relating to your Evite Pro subscription or any other breach of security related to your Evite Pro subscription.
Evite offers registered users who are hosting an event the option to remove advertisements from a free invitation on a per event basis by purchasing an ad free invitation experience (“Evite Premium”). By providing payment information for the one-time Evite Premium, you are agreeing to pay a non-refundable fee, and any applicable taxes and service fees (“Evite Premium Fee”) for the Evite Premium experience. Evite Premium is purchased on a per event basis. Evite Premium is effective for one event and does not renew or extend to other events or users. You must purchase a new Ad Free Invitation for each event invitation from which you wish to remove advertisements. Multiple Evite Premiums may be purchased, each subject to payment of the Evite Premium Fee. The Evite Premium Fee will be charged to your Payment Method upon purchase of Evite Premium, and you authorize Evite to charge your Payment Method for this amount. All payments must be made in United States dollars. Please note that advertisements will appear on the free event invitation until the Evite Premium Fee is paid. Once the Evite Premium Fee is processed, guests will no longer see advertisements on the specific event invitation and event-related communications for which the Evite Premium Fee was paid. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE EVITE PREMIUM FEE IS NON-REFUNDABLE AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INTERNET ACCESS CHARGES. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER FOR INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE INTERNET DATA USAGE CHARGES.
Evite Postmark (discontinued)
As part of the Service, Evite developed "Evite Postmark", which allowed registered users to purchase Credits in order to send online invitations and correspondence that are free of any advertising. This service has been discontinued in favor of the Evite Premium experience, which is purchased on a per event basis.
If you previously purchased and have unused Credits, these will remain in your Evite account for your future use for other services or features through the Evite Service, except as set forth below.
Evite reserves the right to increase or decrease the number of Credits required to be exchanged for a particular service, at any time in Evite's sole discretion without notice to you.
Evite reserves the right to increase or decrease the scope of services for which Credits can be exchanged, at any time in Evite's sole discretion and without notice to you.
Evite reserves the right to limit the amount of Credits you can hold in your account at any one time, in its sole discretion.
If you have not accessed your Evite account for a period of at least 24 consecutive months, then, you direct Evite (or its third party designee) to donate the then current dollar value of those Credits to a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) charity in your name, which may be a donation in the name of a collective group, such as "Former Evite Members" that does not expressly include your name.
If Evite terminates your Evite account for cause, including due to your violation of these Terms of Service, then for all unused Credits that remain in your Evite account at the time of termination, Evite will refund the then current dollar value of those Credits (as determined by the most current per credit purchase cost available on the Evite Service) to you, either through a credit to your charge card, credit to your Paypal account, check mailed to your most current mailing address or such other reasonable process as determined in Evite's sole discretion, less a fee of Twenty-Five Dollars ($25) to cover the cost of processing such refund. If there is less than Twenty-Five Dollars ($25) of Credit value remaining in your account, Evite will not seek any reimbursement from you but we will simply zero out the account. In the event that Evite fails in its attempt to refund any such amounts and is unable to locate you within five (5) business days after attempting to contact you through your most recent contact information, you agree that you direct Evite (or its third party designee) to donate the then current dollar value of those Credits to a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) charity in your name, which may be a donation in the name of a collective group, such as "Former Evite Members" that does not expressly include your name.

Within this period, any failure by Evite to enforce or exercise any provisions of these Terms of Service or related right shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Evite may assign these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, at any time with or without notice to you. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense these Terms of Service or any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms of Service without Evite's express prior written consent. These Terms of Service will inure to the benefit of Evite's successors, assigns and licensees.
No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder will be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is inserted only as a matter of convenience, and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.
This is the entire agreement between you and Evite relating to the subject matter herein and may not be modified by you.

MANDATORY ARBITRATION; WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS.
IF YOU ARE A U.S. RESIDENT, YOU ALSO AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISIONS:
Agreement to Arbitrate. All disputes arising out of or relating to your use of the Service, any purchase you make, any information you provide, these Terms of Service (including the formation, performance or alleged breach), and your use of the Service will be exclusively resolved under confidential binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the “AAA Rules”) then in effect at the time of the dispute.
The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. If you initiate arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for any standard filing fee which may have been required under AAA Rules once you have notified us in writing and provided a copy of the arbitration proceedings. However, if Evite is the prevailing party in the arbitration, applicable law may allow the arbitrator to award attorneys’ fees and costs to Evite. If for any reason the AAA is unavailable, the parties shall mutually select another arbitration forum. The arbitration will be conducted in the city of Los Angeles, California, but may proceed telephonically if the claimant so chooses.
The arbitrator’s award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Terms of Service may be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms of Service, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will have the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in state or federal court located to enforce these Terms of Service or prevent an infringement of a third party’s rights. In the event equitable relief is sought, each party hereby irrevocably submits to the personal jurisdiction of such court.
NO CLASS ACTIONS. Any disputes arising out of or relating to your use of the Service, any information you provide via the Service, or these Terms of Service (including their formation, performance or alleged breach) shall be submitted individually by you, and shall not be subject to any class action or representative status. By entering into this agreement, you hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to join claims with those of others or participate as a member of a class of claimants with respect to any claim submitted to arbitration. The parties to this arbitration agreement acknowledge that this class action waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the parties and is nonseverable from the agreement to arbitrate claims. If any portion of this class action waiver is limited, voided, or cannot be enforced, then the parties’ agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void. You understand that by agreeing to this class action waiver, you may only bring claims against us in an individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE AND TO BE PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY THROUGH ARBITRATION.
Arbitration Opt-out. You shall have thirty (30) days to opt-out of this arbitration agreement beginning on the date that you (i) register your account, or (ii) if already registered, from the first time you use or log in to the Service following the publication of these Terms of Service. To opt out of arbitration you must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "ARBITRATION OPT-OUT". If more than thirty (30) days have passed, you are not eligible to opt out of arbitration.
