We shall not be liable to You or any third party for any such suspension.
6.7 System Requirements. Use of the Services requires one or more compatible devices, Internet access, and certain software, and may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time.

8.1 Event Content. The End Client is the owner of any materials and content that an End Client or others transmit through or store on the Platform, including but not limited to, materials to be displayed during Events, attendee and speaker related content, audio-visual content, interactive features, and any other materials or content made available or submitted to the Platform in connection with an End Client’s Event and recordings thereof, but excluding any Hopin property (“Event Content”) subject to any agreement to the contrary between You and that End Client.

In the event Hopin seeks indemnification from You under this provision, Hopin will promptly notify You in writing of the claim(s) brought against Hopin for which it seeks indemnification. Hopin reserves the right, at its option and sole discretion, to assume full control of the defense of such claim with legal counsel of its choice.

Upon Hopin’s request, you shall reimburse Hopin for any expenses reasonably incurred by Hopin in defending such a claim, including, without limitation, attorney's fees and costs, as well as any judgment on or settlement of the claim in respect to which the foregoing relates.
11.1 DAMAGES EXCLUDED.

11.2 MONETARY CAP. Hopin’s aggregate liability to You arising out of this Agreement, shall not exceed the fees paid by You during the twelve (12) months before the first event giving rise to such liability.

11.4 Risk Allocation. The Sections on limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, and warranties allocate the risks of the Agreement between the Parties. This allocation is reflected in the pricing of the Services and is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the Parties. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages or personal injury or death, so some of the above limitations may not apply to You. In these jurisdictions, such Party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by Law.
12.1 Independent Contractor. It is the express intention of the Parties that You perform the Services as an independent contractor to Hopin.

You acknowledge and agree that Your are obligated to report as income all compensation received by Agency pursuant to this Agreement. Agency will pay (and shall not be entitled to any contribution or reimbursement from Hopin with respect to) all self-employment and other taxes on such income, including but not limited to, federal or state or local taxes (e.g., income, unemployment insurance, disability insurance), with holdings (including FICA), workers compensation, benefits, expenses (e.g., travel, relocation) or other costs related to the Agency’s services.

12.3 Non-Solicitation. During the term of this Agreement and for one (1) year thereafter, Agency shall not, on its own account or on behalf of any other person, directly or indirectly solicit any customer of Hopin or its affiliates or subsidiaries, that became known to Agency directly or indirectly as a result of disclosure of Confidential Information to Agency under this agreement to alter, terminate, or breach its contract or other business relationship with Hopin or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries.

Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party, except that either Party may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement to an Affiliate or in connection with any merger (by operation of law or otherwise), consolidation, reorganization, change in control or sale of all or substantially all of its assets related to this Agreement or similar transaction, with notice to the other Party; and provided that if such proposed assignment is to a competitor of Hopin, Hopin may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days prior notice to Partner.

13.6 Amendment. No supplement, modification, or amendment of this Agreement shall be binding, unless executed in writing by a duly authorized representative of each Party to this Agreement.
13.7 Waiver. Either Party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of that provision or any other provision of this Agreement.

During the Term, and upon becoming a Certified Partner, and subject to the terms of the Agreement, Hopin grants Agency a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to reproduce and display Certification Badges and Hopin’s trademarks and logos, for the sole purpose of indicating that the Agency is a Certified Partner and that certain Personnel are Certified Hosts.

Agency is prohibited from staging actual Events through the Demo Account, and attempting to run a live Event through the Demo Account will result in the immediate termination of this Agreement (without opportunity to cure) and revocation of Agency’s Certification.
C. License Termination. Any license granted under this Program will automatically terminate upon any termination or expiration of Your Certification Partner Agreement or Your termination from the Program.
D. Other Benefits
1. Certification program updated quarterly
2. Access to a closed community of event agencies
3. Agency community events run by Hopin
4. Ability to provide feedback to Hopin’s product team
5. Inclusion in the Agency Marketplace on a Hopin website
The Certified Partner Pilot Commission Program provides an opportunity for agencies to earn commissions on qualified referrals made to Hopin. Hopin reserves the rights to discontinue this pilot program at any time, subject to the ongoing Commission obligations in Paragraph
1. Certified Partner Program Requirement. You must be a Certified Partner in order to participate in this Program.
2. Eligible Lead Process. Agency may refer potential customers to Hopin in compliance with the Agreement. Each potential customer must be correctly tagged and/or tracked via Hopin’s specified method or other agreed upon method. If Hopin notifies Agency that the potential lead is available and eligible, such potential lead will be deemed an “Eligible Lead.” Hopin may deny eligibility based on its reasonable criteria, which may include without limitation, the potential lead is (a) already an Eligible Lead for a third party, (b) an existing customer of Hopin, (c) Hopin is already involved in discussions toward a sale with the potential lead as of and 90 days prior to the date of Agency’s potential lead submission.
3. Eligible Customer; Expiration. If an Eligible Lead purchases the Hopin Service, or upgrades from a free version of the Hopin Service to a Business or Enterprise premium version of the Hopin Service within 90 days of the confirmed referral, such Eligible Lead will be deemed an Eligible Customer. If such Eligible Lead does not convert within the 90 days, the Eligible Lead will automatically expire, provided that Agency may re-submit the potential lead to be an Eligible Lead again one additional time. If the potential lead is deemed an Eligible Lead a second time and such Eligible Lead does not convert within the second 90 days, such Eligible Lead is no longer available to Agency to convert to an Eligible Customer for one year.
4. Commission Calculation. During the Term and (if applicable) after expiration or termination of the Agreement, Agency is entitled to a revenue share equal to 10% of Eligible Income up to a maximum of $10,000 per Qualified Sale (“Commission”).
“Eligible Income” means gross revenues actually received by Hopin from Eligible Customers, from two or more Qualified Sales made in a single Hopin Calendar Quarter to at least two different Eligible Customers, and excludes any third party products or services, Hopin professional services, less any applicable transaction fees, rebates, refunds, credits or charge backs, and subject to the “Exclusions” described below.
A “Qualified Sale” is a fully executed sale of one or more Qualified Products on one Hopin Sales Order (including any Add-Ons to such Qualified Product such as additional prepaid Registrations purchased on the same Hopin Sales Order), to a single unique Eligible Customer, where the fees payable for the Qualified Products are at least $7,200 USD after all applicable discounts.
“Hopin Calendar Quarter” means Hopin’s calendar quarter with the first period to end on January 31, 2022, and continuing on April 30, July 31, October 31 of 2022 and each year thereafter.
“Qualified Products” consist exclusively of:
The following are expressly excluded from “Qualified Products”
By way of example only:
(a) If an agency’s Eligible Customer buys both a Streamyard Business Studio Business Plan and a Hopin Events Business Registrations Plan on one Sales Order for a total fee of $28,000 while meeting all the Additional Conditions, the sale would be deemed a single Qualified Sale.
(b) If a month later the same Eligible Customer described in (a) above purchases additional Business Registrations, the upsell or any overage fees will not be deemed a Qualified Sale.
(c) If a month later but in the same Hopin Calendar Quarter, the same Eligible Customer makes a second purchase of Qualified Products for $7,200 after discounts, the agency would not qualify for a Commission because the second Qualified Sale must be to a different Eligible Customer. A sale to an affiliate, subsidiary, or parent of the first Eligible Customer is not deemed a different Eligible Customer.
(d) If a month later but in the same Hopin Calendar Quarter, a new Eligible Customer makes a purchase of Qualified Products for $7,200 after discounts, the second Qualified Sale would qualify that agency for a Commission.
(e) If two (2) months later but in the same Hopin Calendar Quarter, a new Eligible Customer makes a purchase of Qualified Products for $20,000, but it has been more than 90 days since the referral was deemed an “Eligible Customer” the second sale will not be deemed a Qualified Sale.
5. Payment and Reports. For so long as Agency is eligible to receive a Commission, Hopin will send to Agency after the end of each calendar quarter: (i) an accounting of all sums collected from each Eligible Customer for Commission amounts owed to Agency, and (ii) a check for the amount owed to Agency; provided that no check or payment will be issued for any amount less than $100 USD and any unpaid earnings will rollover and accrue to the next pay period.
6. Commission Audit. Hopin agrees to maintain proper accounts, books and records with respect to the Commission. No more frequently than once in each calendar year during the Term, with a reasonable basis for requesting an audit, Agency may review Hopin’s accounts, books and records for the previous year relating to the Commission (or at Hopin’s election, review by a mutual acceptable independent third party auditor, subject to an appropriate confidentiality agreement) to verify the accuracy of the Commission payment under this Agreement. Any such audit may be conducted after 30 days prior written notice to Hopin. Agency will bear the expense of any audit conducted pursuant to this Paragraph unless such audit shows an underpayment of amounts due to Agency in excess of 5% of the amounts payable during the period audited, in which case Hopin will reimburse to Agency the reasonable expenses of the audit.
7. Pilot Program. This Pilot Commission Program is a pilot program and can be terminated at any time upon notice by Hopin to You, subject to the ongoing Commission obligations in Paragraph 8 below..
8. Effect of Termination. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement or this Program, the Commission obligations will depend on the following:
If the Pilot Commission Program is terminated by Hopin per Paragraph 7 above, or the Agreement is terminated for convenience by Hopin, Hopin’s Commission obligations will apply to Eligible Leads as of the effective date of termination that later qualify to be deemed Eligible Customers.
If the Pilot Commission Program or the Agreement is terminated due to Agency’s uncured breach, Agency’s right to receive any ongoing Commission will terminate immediately.
