Welcome to TicketGateway! We are a ticketing and registration platform dedicated to bringing the world together through live experiences. Through our platform, mobile apps and services, we enable people all over the world to create, discover, share and register for events.
TicketGateway's websites and domains, including www.TicketGateway.ca, and all of the webpages, subdomains, country level domain variants and subparts of those websites (collectively, our "Site"), all of the services available on or through the Site or otherwise provided by us (including our application programming interfaces), and all of our free mobile applications, including without limitation, TicketGatewayLiveScan, the TicketGateway app (collectively, the "Applications") are offered, maintained and provided by TicketGateway. We refer to all of these as our "Services." TicketGateway Inc., an Ontario corporation, with its principal place of business at 40 Nugget Ave, Suite 1-101, Toronto, Ontario M1S 3A8 ("TicketGateway," "CA," "we" or "our.").
Through the Services, TicketGateway provides a simple and quick means for registered users who are event organizers, planners and charitable organizations ("Organizers" or "you") to create event registration, speaker profile, organizer profile, fundraising and other webpages related to their events, to promote those pages and those events and to sell tickets and registrations (or issue free registrations), solicit donations and sell merchandise related to those events to users who wish to make purchases, registrations or donations from or to such events (including to free events) ("Attendees").
The following policy sets forth the terms and conditions upon which Organizers can use the Services to create, promote and/or collect sales proceeds for an event selling tickets and/or registrations (this "Merchant Agreement"). By accepting the Terms of Service, you agree to the terms of this Merchant Agreement without modification and enter into a binding contract with TicketGateway, which will be applicable when and if you use the Services to create, promote and/or collect sales proceeds for an event selling tickets and/or registrations.
This Merchant Agreement and the rights and obligations contained in this Merchant Agreement are in addition to and are incorporated into the Terms of Service by reference. Nothing in this Merchant Agreement shall be deemed to modify, waive, amend or rescind any other term of the Terms of Service.
As part of the creation of a paid event or at any time following such creation, you may be required by TicketGateway to provide additional information (beyond the information required to register for the Services) about yourself, the entity you represent (if any) and the principals/beneficial owners of the entity you represent (if any) (collectively, "Additional Registration Data"). As an example, the Additional Registration Data may include current address, doing business as (DBA) names, description of products, website address, bank account or other payment account information, Tax Identification Numbers, date of birth, passport or drivers license number, country of origin, copies of government identification documents and other personal information. This information may be used to verify your identity, the validity and/or legality of your transactions and/or whether you qualify to use the Services for paid events. You agree to: (a) provide this information in a timely, accurate and complete manner and (b) maintain and promptly update this information in a timely manner to ensure it remains accurate and complete at all times.
We reserve the right to suspend your TicketGateway account or to withhold any amounts due to you in the event that we reasonably believe that your Registration Data or Additional Registration Data is inaccurate or if you fail to provide all Registration Data or Additional Registration Data within the timeframes requested.
There are two types of payment processing options Organizers may elect to use to collect sales proceeds for paid events: (i) "Facilitated Payment Processing" or "FPP," which consists of collecting all sales proceeds from ticket, registration and merchandise sales and donations solicited via the Services (collectively, "Event Registration Fees") using third party payment services, such as PayPal®, and (ii) "TicketGateway Payment Processing," "EPP," or the "EPP Service," in which TicketGateway acts as Organizer's limited payment collection agent for the purpose of collecting Event Registration Fees through its Payment Processing Partners (as defined below).
For the avoidance of doubt, TicketGateway does not and will not provide banking, deposit taking, stored value, insurance or any other financial services to an Organizer other than, for Organizers who elect EPP, serving as a limited payment collection agent as set forth below. To provide the EPP Service, TicketGateway utilizes third party gateways, payment processors, merchant acquirers and/or merchant acquiring banks with which we have relationships (collectively, "Payment Processing Partners") and both Organizers and TicketGateway are subject to the rules and regulations of such Payment Processing Partners. For convenience, TicketGateway shows you a balance of proceeds for your events in your TicketGateway account, however, that balance merely reflects the amount of Event Registration Fees collected by a third-party payment service (FPP) or by our Payment Processing Partners (EPP), and in the case of EPP, represents only a general unsecured claim against TicketGateway and not a store of value or a deposit/current account.
Upon an order being placed by an Attendee and confirmed through TicketGateway, TicketGateway generates a confirmation message and issues a unique confirmation number for such Attendee's order. Organizer agrees to unconditionally accept, honor and fulfill all ticketing, registration, merchandise and donation commitments that have been confirmed by TicketGateway through the Services, and it is Organizer's responsibility to verify an Attendee's confirmation number and/or any event restrictions prior to the applicable event.
Regardless of the payment processing option elected, Organizer agrees to pay TicketGateway all applicable service fees for each ticket, registration or other item sold or donation solicited via the Services (the "TicketGateway Service Fee"). To the extent Organizer uses EPP, Organizer also agrees to pay TicketGateway the additional TicketGateway Payment Processing fee (the "TicketGateway Payment Processing Fee") for each ticket, registration or other item sold or donation solicited via the Services. The TicketGateway Service Fee and the TicketGateway Payment Processing Fee vary by country and the current fees can be found at FAQ . Note that these fees are subject to change from time to time with respect to transactions that occur following the change. In addition, Organizer may from time to time request additional Services from TicketGateway, including without limitation, marketing and promotion services, equipment leasing, on-site services, printed tickets and dedicated account management, which TicketGateway may provide at its discretion and the terms of which will be covered by a separate written agreement. Fees for such ancillary Services (the "Ancillary Fees") will be disclosed to Organizer prior to Organizer's acceptance of such Services. The TicketGateway Service Fee, the TicketGateway Payment Processing Fee and the Ancillary Fees are referred to herein as the "Fees".
Invoices for Fees are sent to Organizers monthly for Fees incurred in the previous month. All invoices are due and payable within thirty (30) days of delivery of the invoice or will be subject to 2.5% per month, compounded daily.
If you have requested EPP, then upon receipt of Additional Registration Data, TicketGateway will determine, in its discretion, whether you are qualified to use EPP. If you are not qualified to use EPP, but you are otherwise qualified to use the Services, TicketGateway will notify you and you may switch to FPP unless the reason that you do not qualify for EPP is that your event is a Prohibited Event, you are a Prohibited Merchant and/or your transactions are Prohibited Transactions, in each case as such terms are defined in Section 5. For risk management and security reasons and to meet the requirements imposed by our Payment Processing Partners, we may from time to time in our discretion impose a transaction limit on the amount of any given transaction that you process through EPP and you authorize us to reject any transaction over that limit.
When using EPP, payment processing occurs directly through our Payment Processing Partners. Within five (5) business days after the successful completion of an event, TicketGateway will cause our Payment Processing Partners to pass along all Event Registration Fees related to such event that have been collected by our Payment Processing Partners, subject to (i) deduction of all applicable Fees then due; (ii) any other deductions authorized pursuant to this Merchant Agreement; and (iii) any reserves established as set forth in subsection (f) below. Such payouts will be made only to the payout information designated by Organizer on the Services under "Payment Options." Payouts are made by ACH, or for Organizers with Event Registration Fees in USD, by check to an address in the United States or Canada. In addition, EPP may allow you to accept payments from card based payment networks, such as Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover® (collectively, the "Card Schemes"), and non-card based payment networks such as direct debit and other alternative forms of payment (the "Alternative Form of Payment Frameworks"). Except to the extent set forth in a Commercial Entity Agreement (as defined below and to the extent applicable) between you and one of our Payment Processing Partners or a Card Scheme, you are not a direct party to any agreement with any Payment Processing Partner, Card Scheme or Alternative Form of Payment Framework, nor are you a third-party beneficiary of any such agreement. In addition, by accepting a particular Card Scheme payment type (e.g., MasterCard, Visa, American Express), you are authorizing the owner of that Card Scheme and its affiliates to use your name, address and website URL in any media from time to time.
Appointment as Agent
With respect to any events for which Organizer uses EPP, Organizer hereby appoints TicketGateway as Organizer's limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Attendees for such events through our Payment Processing Partners. Organizer agrees that a payment made by an Attendee to TicketGateway shall be considered the same as a payment made by an Attendee directly to Organizer and Organizer will sell or provide all advertised goods and services to the Attendee as if Organizer had directly received the Event Registration Fees from such Attendee, regardless of whether the Event Registration Fees have yet to be received from TicketGateway. Organizer agrees that in its role as limited agent, TicketGateway is authorized to (i) enable Attendees to transfer or upgrade a ticket and/or registration (if such transfers are permitted by Organizer during the event registration process); (ii) hold, disburse and retain proceeds on Organizer's behalf pursuant to this Merchant Agreement; (iii) issue refunds to Attendees as set forth in Section 4.4 below; and (iv) manage credit card chargebacks as set forth in subsection (g) below. In accepting appointment as the limited agent of Organizer, TicketGateway assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of Organizer and Organizer understands that TicketGateway's obligation to pay Organizer is subject to and conditional upon receipt of the associated Event Registration Fees from Attendees. Organizer further authorizes TicketGateway to delegate its obligations under this Merchant Agreement to certain of its affiliated entities both within and outside the United States, provided, that TicketGateway will remain liable for the discharge of its obligations under this Merchant Agreement by such affiliated entities.
Organizer agrees that all Event Registration Fees for a given event are earned by Organizer only following the conclusion of the applicable event. TicketGateway, in its discretion, may determine to advance a portion of Event Registration Fees to Organizer prior to the period set forth in Section 4.3(b), on such terms and conditions set forth in this Merchant Agreement and/or such terms that Organizer and TicketGateway agree to in a separate Advance Payments Agreement. Organizer agrees that any payments made by TicketGateway of Event Registration Fees prior to the fifth (5th) business day after the end date of the applicable event are merely advances of amounts that may become due to Organizer under this Merchant Agreement. If TicketGateway decides to advance a portion of TicketGateway Registration Fees to Organizer, Organizer acknowledges and agrees that TicketGateway may at any time (i) terminate or suspend Organizer's right to receive such advance payments; and/or (ii) alter the terms (i.e. frequency, reserve rate and maximum aggregate cap) of such advance payments made to Organizer. In addition, Organizer agrees that TicketGateway may demand back such advances (or any portion thereof) from time to time in its discretion based upon the level of refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks, customer complaints, allegations of fraud, changes in Organizer's credit profile or the underlying event(s)' risk profile, or breaches of the Terms of Service, including this Merchant Agreement. Upon receipt of notice of any such demand, Organizer shall thereupon promptly pay back to TicketGateway the portion of any such advance demanded. Organizer acknowledges and agrees that TicketGateway has the right to withhold funds as set forth in Section 4.5(a) of this Merchant Agreement. Organizer also acknowledges and accepts its obligations under Section 4.3(g) and 4.4(c) of the Merchant Agreement, including its obligations to reimburse TicketGateway for refunds and credit card chargebacks.
No payments shall be made to Organizer with respect to any event that is cancelled or with respect to which TicketGateway believes there is a risk of cancellation or nonperformance, unless TicketGateway receives adequate security (as determined by TicketGateway in its discretion) for Organizer's obligations under this Merchant Agreement. In addition, no Event Registration Fees for a given event shall be earned until that event is successfully completed. If payments have already been made to an Organizer for a cancelled event, Organizer will immediately refund to a payment address designated by TicketGateway all such payments upon cancellation of such event for the purpose of effecting refunds if refunds are being made under Section 4.4.
TicketGateway reserves the right to retain a certain percentage of Event Registration Fees (with such percentage being determined by TicketGateway in its discretion) to fund a reserve (i) at any time as we determine in our discretion to be necessary based upon the level (or expected level) of refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks, customer complaints, allegations of fraud or changes in Organizer's credit profile or the underlying event(s)' risk profile; and (ii) as otherwise necessary to secure the performance of your obligations under the Terms of Service, including this Merchant Agreement. TicketGateway's right to hold a reserve shall continue following the applicable event(s) and until either (A) Organizer has discharged all obligations under the Terms of Service and the applicable periods for refunds, disputed charges, chargebacks, and complaints have passed or (B) Organizer has otherwise provided TicketGateway with adequate security (as determined by TicketGateway in its discretion) for its obligations under the Terms of Service, whether matured or unmatured, contingent or non-contingent, or liquidated or un-liquidated.
Any credit card chargebacks or other transaction reversals initiated against TicketGateway or its affiliates for any reason (except to the extent they are caused solely by TicketGateway's negligence or willful misconduct) with respect to an Organizer's event and all related credit card association, payment processing, re-presentment, penalty and other fees and expenses incurred by TicketGateway or its affiliates in connection with such chargebacks shall ultimately be the responsibility of Organizer, and Organizer agrees to promptly and fully reimburse TicketGateway for such amounts on demand. As part of TicketGateway's limited payment collection agency, TicketGateway will use commercially reasonable efforts to manage the re-presentment of such chargebacks and reversals on behalf of Organizer and Organizer hereby authorizes TicketGateway to do so and agrees to use reasonable efforts to cooperate with TicketGateway in such re-presentment. However, TicketGateway shall have no obligation to re-present any chargeback that it believes in its discretion it is more likely than not to lose or that relates to a transaction that should be refunded in accordance with the Organizer's refund policy or the provisions of Section 4.4(c) below. Understanding the nature of the Payment Scheme Rules (as defined below) and the discretion that they provide to the Card Schemes and Alternative Form of Payment Frameworks, both parties agree that TicketGateway's loss of any chargeback that has been re-presented by TicketGateway shall not in any way limit Organizer's obligation to reimburse TicketGateway and its affiliates under this paragraph.
TicketGateway only provides the TicketGateway Payment Processing Service for certain currencies and for Organizers in certain locations. In addition, Event Registration Fees collected in a currency may only be paid out to Organizer in the currency in which they are collected. TicketGateway does not provide currency conversion services. Finally, different payment options or payment methods may be available to you depending on the currency in which you collect Event Registration Fees and your location.
Payment Scheme Rules
The Card Schemes and Alternative Form of Payment Frameworks require that you comply with all applicable bylaws, rules and regulations published by them from time to time (collectively, the "Payment Scheme Rules"). We may be required to change this Merchant Agreement in connection with amendments to the Payment Scheme Rules. Depending on what payment methods you elect to use in EPP, you may be subject to different Payment Scheme Rules. You agree to comply with any applicable Payment Scheme Rules as in effect from time to time. These Payment Scheme Rules include without limitation, a requirement to submit only bona fide transactions, limits on how you use the Card Scheme logos and trademarks and authorization to use certain of your information to show that you participate in the Card Schemes. The Payment Scheme Rules are publicly available from the websites of the related Card Schemes and Alternative Form of Payment Frameworks.
Special Payment Terms
The following additional terms apply to the extent you use the corresponding payment option:
i. Recurring Payments/Layaway. Organizer may use TicketGateway's "layaway" functionality, upon TicketGateway's prior approval. If Organizer elects to use such functionality, Organizer agrees to display all notices required by and to comply in all respects with all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations and the Payment Scheme Rules, including with respect to consumer cancellations and refunds. No additional fees or increased prices may be charged for tickets purchased on "layaway" and the number of installments may not exceed four (4).
ii. Pay by Invoice. You may elect to add "pay by invoice" as an option to your EPP Service. If you use pay by invoice you must supply bank account information requested by TicketGateway, which information will be displayed on invoices and order confirmations delivered by TicketGateway to the applicable Attendee after completion of a transaction on the Services. Organizer will then collect the funds from the Attendee and then mark the ticket/registration as "paid" in a designated area of the Services. Once marked as paid, TicketGateway will cause the Attendee's ticket to be validated such that when scanned with one of TicketGateway's Applications it will show as valid. It is Organizer's sole responsibility to provide accurate bank account information, collect all amounts from Attendees, process refunds (if applicable) off the Services, and accurately mark tickets/registrations as paid or unpaid on the Services in the designated area. For the avoidance of doubt, with "pay by invoice" the payment transaction is effected solely between Organizer and the applicable Attendee.
Refund Policy and Process
Regardless of what payment method is selected, Organizer agrees to communicate a refund policy to Attendees with respect to each event posted on the Services that meets the requirements of the Attendee Refund Policy Requirements available here and to administer such policy in accordance with its terms and the Attendee Refund Policy Requirements. The Attendee Refund Policy Requirements are incorporated by reference into this Merchant Agreement. All refunds for EPP transactions must be processed through TicketGateway, unless otherwise agreed by TicketGateway. For EPP transactions, Organizer can issue refunds to Attendees directly through the Services within certain windows permitted by our Payment Processing Partners. If the refund is outside such windows, then it will need to be processed manually by TicketGateway. TicketGateway may determine in its discretion not to process any refunds that are manual, in which case they will be processed directly by Organizer.
Regardless of what payment method is selected, all disputes regarding refunds are between Organizer and its Attendees. In the event of a dispute, TicketGateway may try to mediate, but ultimately it is Organizer's obligation to settle the dispute. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to EPP transactions, TicketGateway shall have the right to make refunds on Organizer's behalf as set forth in subsection (c) below.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Organizer authorizes TicketGateway to make refunds in the following situations (i) Organizer specifically authorizes the refunds at the time; (ii) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that specific orders should be refunded under the Organizer's posted refund policy or the Attendee Refund Policy Requirements, including without limitation, that they are required by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule or regulation or the Payment Scheme Rules; (iii) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that the refund request, if not granted, will lead to a chargeback that TicketGateway is more likely than not to lose; (iv) Organizer failed to list a refund policy on the applicable event page and TicketGateway believes in its discretion that a refund would be reasonable under the circumstances; (v) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that specific orders are fraudulent (e.g., made with stolen credit cards or otherwise not bona fide transactions); or (vi) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that the order is a duplicate. Organizer also authorizes TicketGateway to make refunds of any and all orders (including those for unrelated events) if (A) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that Organizer has engaged in any fraudulent activity or made any misrepresentations; (B) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that there is substantial risk of nonperformance by Organizer with respect to the applicable event or future events; (C) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that it is likely to receive complaints, refund requests, transaction reversals and/or chargebacks with respect to a substantial amount of orders; or (D) TicketGateway believes in its discretion that Organizer is a Prohibited Merchant, has used the Services to process Prohibited Transactions or to manage Prohibited Events or that failing to make the refunds would otherwise expose TicketGateway to legal liability. Because all sales are ultimately made by Organizers, Organizer hereby agrees to promptly and fully reimburse TicketGateway and its affiliates upon demand for refunds that TicketGateway makes pursuant to this Merchant Agreement, other than to the extent that the necessity for such refunds are caused by TicketGateway's negligence or willful misconduct. Organizer acknowledges and agrees that chargebacks will result in losses to TicketGateway in excess of the amount of the underlying transaction and that by refunding transactions in advance of a chargeback TicketGateway is mitigating such losses and its damages with respect to Organizer's breach of this Merchant Agreement.
In the event that Organizer fails to pay to TicketGateway any amount owed pursuant to the Terms of Service (including without limitation this Merchant Agreement) when due and following a late payment notice being delivered by TicketGateway, such amount shall bear interest calculated from the date due until paid in full at a rate equal to the lesser of (i) one percent (1%) per month, compounded monthly; and (ii) the maximum amount permitted by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other laws, rules or regulations. In the event any amounts are owed by Organizer to TicketGateway under the Terms of Service (including without limitation this Merchant Agreement), TicketGateway may, without limiting its other rights and remedies and to the extent permitted by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other laws, rules or regulations (A) withhold any amounts due to Organizer, whether for a particular event or for any other event that Organizer lists through the Services and use the withheld amount to setoff the amount owed by Organizer to TicketGateway; and/or (B) send an invoice to Organizer for such amounts to the extent Organizer's outstanding balance is insufficient to cover these costs, in which case Organizer shall pay TicketGateway such invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. If payment for any amounts due to TicketGateway hereunder is not made by Organizer when due and after receiving a late payment notice from TicketGateway, TicketGateway reserves the right, in its discretion and without limiting its other rights and remedies, to suspend or terminate Organizer's registration for the Services (including any and all accounts that Organizer may have).
Costs of Collection
Organizer agrees to promptly and fully reimburse TicketGateway upon demand for all out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, incurred by TicketGateway in collecting past due amounts from Organizer under this Merchant Agreement, the Terms of Service or otherwise.
i. You are solely responsible for determining which, if any, sales, use, amusement, value added, consumption, excise and other taxes, duties, levies and charges (collectively, "Taxes") apply to your use of the Services and you agree that it is your sole responsibility to, and that you will, collect, remit and report the correct amounts of all such Taxes to the applicable governmental authorities, even if TicketGateway provides you with tax tools or tax calculators that assist you in doing so. TicketGateway does not represent, warrant or guarantee that any tax tools or tax calculators provided to you will meet all tax requirements that may be applicable to you or that such tax tools or tax calculators will result in your collection or remittance of all applicable Taxes, which Taxes may vary based on the nature of your event, the nature of your tax status (individual, entity, business, consumer, etc.), your location, the location of your Attendees, credits and deductions for which you may qualify and other factors, and you hereby release TicketGateway of any and all liability with respect to your use of the tax tools and/or tax calculators. None of such tax tools or tax calculators should be considered legal or tax advice. If you do collect Taxes on the Services, those Taxes will be treated like Event Registration Fees and TicketGateway will pay such amounts to you at the same time as the underlying Event Registration Fees. If you use any tax tools or tax calculators that require you to input a tax registration number, you represent and warrant that such tax registration number is true and correct. TicketGateway cannot give you legal or tax advice, so please be sure to check with your own tax advisor about any applicable Taxes. In the event that a governmental authority requires TicketGateway to pay any Taxes attributable to your use of the Services, you agree to promptly and fully reimburse TicketGateway for such Taxes upon demand and all costs, penalties, interest and expenses related thereto.
ii. To comply with sales tax regulations of the European Union (the "EU"), TicketGateway is required to (A) collect Value Added Tax ("VAT") from Organizers on the TicketGateway Service Fee for paid tickets or registrations sold on or through the Site by Organizers residing in the EU who have not provided TicketGateway with their VAT Identification Number ("VAT ID"); and (B) remit any such VAT collected to the relevant tax authority. If you provide us with your VAT ID, we will not collect VAT on the TicketGateway Service Fee. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the VAT ID you provide to TicketGateway (if any) is accurate, complete and properly formatted. Please be aware that falsification or misrepresentation of information to evade payment of VAT may result in fines and/or criminal prosecution. You agree to promptly and fully reimburse TicketGateway for all out-of-pocket costs and expenses arising out of your falsification or misrepresentation of a VAT ID on the Site. TicketGateway does not require Organizers to have a VAT ID. However, if you are an Organizer residing in the EU, and you do not have a VAT ID or you do not provide us with your VAT ID, TicketGateway will collect and remit VAT on the TicketGateway Service Fee on your behalf. In the interest of clarity, TicketGateway does not collect and remit VAT on the TicketGateway Payment Processing Fee or on the price of the tickets or registrations you sell on or through the Site. To learn more about TicketGateway's process for collecting and remitting VAT, see our article here .
iii. Except as set forth in Section 4.5(c)(ii), in addition, due to IRS regulations, if TicketGateway processes transactions and issues you payouts (A) for more than twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) in gross sales; and (B) for more than two hundred (200) transaction orders, in each case during a given calendar year and in the aggregate across all of your accounts, TicketGateway is required to report to the IRS (i) the gross amount of transactions for which you have been paid in that calendar year and in each month of that calendar year; (ii) your name; (iii) your address; and (iv) your Tax Identification Number ("Your Tax Information"). As part of these IRS regulations, TicketGateway is required to either (A) collect Your Tax Information; or (B) establish that you are a foreign person not subject to US taxes, before your accounts pass the two hundred (200) order transaction threshold in the aggregate. Once your accounts cross the two hundred (200) order transaction threshold, you agree that you will not receive any further payments from TicketGateway until either (A) or (B) above are satisfied. To learn more about these IRS regulations and why we are required to do this, see our 1099-K FAQ here .
iv. TicketGateway reserves the right to withhold the payment of any amounts owed to you hereunder and dispose of them as required by applicable local, state, provincial, national or other law, rule, regulation, judgment or order, in each case as determined by TicketGateway.
From time to time, one or more Card Schemes may require that you enter into an additional agreement directly with one of our Payment Processing Partners or with the applicable Card Scheme. Typically, this happens if your transactions exceed one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) with respect to a particular Card Scheme on an annual basis in a given geography. If we believe that your account is likely to be subject to this additional requirement, we will provide you with a "Commercial Entity Agreement" that you must agree to in order to continue using EPP. If you fail to accept that "Commercial Entity Agreement," we may suspend or terminate your account or transfer your account to FPP.
If your account has had no activity for a period of time set forth in applicable unclaimed property (e.g., escheatment) laws and we hold funds related to your account, then we will notify you as required by applicable laws. If you do not claim your unclaimed funds within the timeframe notified to you, then we will escheat them to the applicable governmental authority in accordance with applicable laws.

If you fall into any of the categories set forth above, as determined by TicketGateway in its discretion, you are a "Prohibited Merchant."
You may not post events to the Services that:
