Activity Provider Terms

All Activity Provider’s must select one of the following two options for participating with the Site: 1) become a Subscriber or 2) participate on a “Pay for Performance” basis. Pricing for both options is published on the Site. All prices are subject to change at any time and from time to time in our sole discretion.  In order to participate via either option and use one or more of the features described on the Site, you must provide us with a valid credit card.  You acknowledge and agree that if you choose to participate on a Pay for Performance basis, you will pay us all of the following (which amounts we will collect by charging your credit card): (a) $3 for every Click (as defined below) generated by us via the Site, our marketing efforts, or otherwise (the “PPC Fee”), and (b) a commission on each activity registration completed through the Site for one of your activities (each, an “Activity Registration”) equal to 15% of the registration fee charged by you for such Activity Registration (the “Commission”). A “Click” occurs each time a user clicks on either a registration hyperlink (i.e. a button or other hyperlink leading the user to an Activity Registration page on the Site) or a hyperlink that results in the user navigating from our Site or other location created by us or on our behalf (e.g. marketing communication, banner advertisement, etc.) to a website owned or operated by you or on your behalf.  PPC Fees and Commissions will be charged to your credit card on a monthly or quarterly basis in our discretion.

 

You acknowledge and agree that if you choose to participate on the Site as a Subscriber, you will pay us the subscription price stated on the Site (the “Subscription Fee”) which Subscription Fee we will collect by charging your credit card.  The Subscription Fee stated on the Site (subject to any special promotions or discounts that may be available) is a monthly fee that will be charged to your credit card automatically each month. However, all Subscriptions are annual subscriptions that automatically renew each year unless you provide Activity Rocket notice of your desire not to renew your Subscription at least sixty (60) days prior to the next renewal date.  You may not terminate a paid Subscription prior to the end of the then current Subscription term.  You may terminate your participation on a Pay as You Go basis at any time upon at least ten (10) days’ prior written notice to Activity Rocket.  Irrespective of whether you participate on a Pay for Perfomance basis or as a Subscriber, you agree to pay all charges set forth above without dispute as long as you participate on the Site irrespective of any claims or disputes you may have with any end user that registers for one or more of your activities.

 

Each time an Activity Registration is completed on the Site:

 

(a) We will charge the registering Rocket Member the appropriate registration fee (the “Registration Fee”) and then remit the Registration Fees to you via electronic transfer to an account designated by you or via check within fourteen (14) business days of our receipt (less refunds, credits and chargebacks);

 

(b) We will charge your credit card or deduct from the Registration Fee (in our discretion) a $4.00 service fee (the “Service Fee”), which  Service Fee is in addition to all all applicable PPC Fees, Commissions, and Subscription Fees;   

 

(c) You shall accept or reject the registration request as soon as practicable, but in any case within 36 hours. Your failure to respond to any registration request within 36 hours will be deemed a rejection of such request.  In addition, you shall afford all Activity Registrations and associated registrants the same rights and treat them with the same priority as they would receive if booked directly through you or your own website.

 

Rocket Member Terms

If you are a Rocket Member, you agree to pay for all goods, services and activities (including, without limitation, registration fees) purchased via the Site the amounts stated on the Site and authorize Activity Rocket to debit your bank or other account and/or charge your credit card (depending on payment methods we may make available from time to time and, if multiple options are available, your selected payment method) for all such amounts. Activity Rocket hereby reserves the right to correct any errors or inaccuracies in the descriptions of any Activity Provider, activity and/or listed price regardless of whether Activity Rocket discovers the error or inaccuracy before or after you purchase or register for the good, service or activity. All sales and transactions are final and no refunds or credits will be provided by Activity Rocket.  You must contact the relevant Activity Provider to determine its refund/cancellation policy and to request/obtain any refund and/or to terminate any activity registration. Activity Providers reserve the right at all times and from time to time to modify, suspend or terminate any activity (including the duration, content and/or schedule therefor) due to lack of enrollment or participation or for any other reason in their sole and absolute discretion.  You acknowledge that activity registration requests submitted through the Site are not considered accepted by Activity Rocket unless and until you receive confirmation from us or the Activity Provider. In most cases we will inform you as to whether your request has been accepted or rejected within 36 hours.  We strongly recommend that you confirm ALL activity registrations directly with the relevant Activity Provider even after receiving confirmation from us as Activity Rocket will not be responsible for any errors, defects or failures on the part of any Activity Provider or on their registration, billing or other systems, including without limitation, with respect to confirming, making or maintaining any registration, and/or with respect to the modification, termination or rescheduling of any activity or series of activities. In addition, if you discover that a registration booked through and confirmed by the Site was not actually accepted by the relevant Activity Provider, while Activity Rocket may refund the registration fee paid to us if we are responsible for the error, as more fully set forth below, we will not be responsible for any inconvenience or other costs or damages you may incur as a result.  You also acknowledge that by clicking on either a registration hyperlink (i.e. a button or other hyperlink leading you to an activity registration page on the Site) or a hyperlink that results in you navigating from our Site to a website owned or operated by or on behalf of an Activity Provider, your name and email address will be provided to the relevant Activity Provider for your convenience so that the Activity Provider may contact you to further discuss your interest in their activities.

This Agreement is deemed entered into in the State of Maryland and is governed by and will be construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Maryland, without regard to the conflict of laws principles of such jurisdiction.  All proceedings, disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to the Site and/or this Agreement (collectively, “Disputes”) shall be pursued, prosecuted and conducted on an individual (and not a class-wide) basis only and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.  In addition, no Dispute between Activity Rocket and another person or entity may be consolidated with any other Dispute between Activity Rocket and any other person or entity.   All Disputes shall be brought and heard exclusively (a) for those brought by you, in the state or Federal (if a basis for Federal jurisdiction exists) courts located in or nearest to Rockville, Maryland, and (b) for those brought by us or any of our Related Parties in the state or Federal (if a basis for Federal jurisdiction exists) courts located in or nearest to Rockville, Maryland or in any court located in a jurisdiction in which you reside, maintain an office, are organized or incorporated, and/or from where you accessed the Site.  You hereby irrevocably consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of such courts and waive any claim that such courts represent an inconvenient or otherwise inappropriate venue or forum.  Activity Rocket controls and operates the Site from our offices in Bethesda, Maryland. Activity Rocket does not represent or warrant that the Site, any Site Features and/or any Site Content is appropriate or available for use in other locations.

Miscellaneous 
Activity Rocket’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between us and you nor trade practice shall act to modify any provision of this Agreement. Activity Rocket may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you. You agree that regardless of any statute or Law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action by you arising out of or related to the Site and/or this Agreement must be filed by you in an appropriate court of law within six (6) months after such claim or cause of action arose or it will be forever barred. If any provision of this Agreement, or the application thereof to any person or circumstances, is found to be invalid or for any reason, unenforceable by any court having competent jurisdiction, (a) such provision will be deemed amended to the least extent possible to render it valid and enforceable in a manner that preserves the original intent of the provision as much as possible, and (b) the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect the validity and application of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.  No waiver of any term of this Agreement or the breach thereof will be effective unless in a writing signed by the party to be charged with such waiver.  No waiver of any term of this Agreement or the breach thereof will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term or the breach thereof.  This Agreement constitutes the complete and entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, written, electronic or oral, in relation thereto, unless expressly agreed otherwise in a written agreement signed by authorized representatives of both you and us.  The section titles in this Agreement are for your convenience only and do not have any legal or contractual effect.
