Last Updated: July 20, 2020
We may make changes to these Terms at any time. Any changes we make will be effective immediately when we post a revised version of these Terms on the Site. The "Last Updated" date above will tell you when these Terms were last revised. By continuing to use this Site after that date, you agree to the changes.
You understand and agree that to use the Site you must be of legal age (18 years of age or older, or, if you have parental consent, 13 years of age). If you use the Sites on behalf of any third party, you agree that you are an authorized representative of that third party and that your use of the Sites constitutes that third party’s acceptance of these Terms.
a. General. Veeps provides a marketplace for Artists to offer Fans services such as a VIP ticket package (a "Package") for live or streaming events or a subscription to communications from an Artist (a "Subscription") as detailed below. In this regard, Veeps is an intermediary between Artists and Fans and not an agent or broker of Artists. We cannot guaranty any amount of purchases, the quality of the experience provided by an Artist, or the conduct of any User. We may make changes to the Services at any time, without notice to you. If you object to the changes, your sole recourse is to stop using the Site. Certain features of the Site may be subject to additional terms (for example, your use of the Veeps Community Forums is subject to the Veeps Community Forum Guidelines ).
b. Artist Responsibilities.
i. Packages. Artists must accurately describe the experience offered in any Package and by offering a Package, you, as the Artist, agree that you will provide the experience described in the Package. If you fail to provide such experience, you agree to indemnify us and reimburse us for any refunds that we need to issue or damages that we suffer due to your failure. If your event is postponed or rescheduled, you agree to provide the experience described in the Package at such reasonable later date. In the event that you do not provide the experience, we will not remit any payments to you unless and until we are satisfied (in our discretion) that Fans will be issued replacement tickets or refunds. Artists must provide customer service to Fans with respect to a Package and each Artist acknowledges that Veeps does not provide any customer service with respect to Packages. Further, each Artist must furnish a working contact and support email address which will be displayed on Artist’s Veeps page.
ii. Artist Content and Communications. Artists are responsible for creating the images, words, graphics, recordings and other content featured on their Veeps Artist page, communicated to their Fans through communications, or performed or displayed as part of a streaming event or an On Demand viewing (collectively, the “Artist Content”). Artists are solely responsible for securing all permissions, licenses and approvals that may be required pursuant to your agreements with any third parties (e.g., record labels, managers, agents, etc.) for all Artist Content available on the Site and to perform a streaming event, to record a streaming event or to replay or display a recorded streaming event or any other recorded content through an On Demand viewing or otherwise. Fans choose whether they want to receive marketing/exclusive content text messages and/or emails featuring Artist Content in connection with a Package and/or Subscription (together, the “Artist Communications”). Artists must identify their outgoing Artist Communications as either administrative (i.e., transactional) or marketing/promotional and are responsible for the accuracy of such classification. Veeps is not responsible for Artist Content or Artist Communications, including any links or attached items therein. Each Artist agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Veeps harmless for any liability or loss incurred by Veeps as a result of the Artist Content or Artist Communications, including without limitation for any claims brought by third parties. Each Fan agrees that you will not sue, or attempt to hold Veeps responsible, for any Artist Content or Artist Communication.
c. Streaming Services and Internet Access.The ability to view a streaming event may be limited depending on your Internet provider, your device, and your browser type. Fans are responsible for determining whether your Internet speed, device, and browser can support a streaming event and Veeps strongly suggests that you test your Internet speed, device, and browser before making a streaming ticket purchase.
a. General. You will not be required to register for an account in order to browse the Site as a general User. However, Users will be required to register for a Fan account to use certain features of the Site, such as purchasing a Package or Subscription, and for an Artist account to provide services through the Site, such as setting up Packages. Artists may also purchase Packages from other Artists, in which case the purchaser would be a “Fan” for purposes of that particular transaction.
b. Account Credentials. By registering for an account, you agree that all information provided is accurate and complete. Your account username may not include the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, or be offensive, vulgar or obscene. Your account and your account username and password are personal to you and you may not transfer or sell access to your account or use another User's account without that User's permission. You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your username and password, and for all activities (including purchases) that are conducted through your account. We will not be liable for any harm related to disclosure of your username or password or the use by anyone else of your username or password. You will immediately notify us in writing if you discover any unauthorized use of your account or other account-related security breach. We may require you to change your username and/or password if we believe your account is no longer secure or if we receive a complaint that your username violates someone else's rights. You will have no ownership in your account or your username. We may refuse registration, cancel an account or deny access to the Site for any reason.
a. General. Veeps is an events-based ticketing platform for Artists’ live and streaming events. Veeps does not control the services advertised or provided by the Artist and does not manage or fulfill the merchandise that an Artist might include as part of an order.
b. Pricing. Pricing is determined by an Artist with regard to each of their service offerings. However, the Veeps ticketing platform supports a minimum ticket price which is currently USD $3. Advertised prices do not include any shipping and handling fees, transaction fees, or any applicable taxes. Shipping and handling fees and taxes charged or collected by us will be added to your order and will appear as a separate charge on your order confirmation and receipt. All prices are in U.S. Dollars (unless otherwise stated). Applicable taxes shall be separately assessed as required by law at the time of checkout (unless otherwise stated in package details). If applicable, currency exchange rates and foreign transaction fees are generally determined and applied by your payment provider and you acknowledge and agree that we have no responsibility for refunding nor compensating you for amounts or expenses incurred in connection with those fees.
c. Method of Payment. Fans agree to pay all charges incurred by you via payment card (or other applicable payment mechanism) at the amounts in effect when such charges are incurred. By providing us with your payment information, you agree that we and any of our third party payment processors are authorized to immediately debit your account for all applicable fees and charges. You agree to immediately notify us of any change in your payment information. We reserve the right at any time to change our billing methods. All information that you provide to us or our third party payment processors must be accurate, current and complete. We may cancel a payment or prevent you from making future payments for any reason, including, without limitation: (i) if you attempt to use the Site in breach of any applicable law or regulation, including but not limited to the card network rules or regulations; (ii) if you use the Website in breach of these Terms; (iii) if we suspect fraudulent, unlawful or improper activity regarding a payment; (iv) if we detect, in our sole discretion, that your payments have excessive disputes, high reversal rates or present a relatively high risk of losses; or (v) failure to cooperate in an investigation or provide additional information when requested.
d. Billing Information Verification. Fan orders are processed only after a billing address and other billing information have been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect billing or credit card account information for a Package order that can delay processing and delivery. In these cases, customer service will attempt to contact you, using the information provided at the time of purchase. If we are unable to reach you after our initial attempt, we may cancel your order and may sell your Package to another Fan without further notice.
e. No Resale, Transfer, and Promotions. Purchases of both live-event and streaming Packages are personal to each Fan and the resale, transfer, or gifting of Packages is expressly prohibited. Photo identification may be required at the time of redeeming a live-event Package. Packages may not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes unless formal written authorization is given by us.
f. Postponed or Rescheduled Events. If a live or streaming event is postponed or rescheduled, we will endeavor for the Package to be honored for the rescheduled event date. New Package tickets will not be issued for most rescheduled events or postponements. We will not refund Fans for postponed or rescheduled Packages. However, in the event that an Artist is unable to fulfill the Package that you purchased, the Artist will endeavor to provide an alternate date for the Package (which we may communicate to you on the Artist's behalf). If Artist cannot provide such an alternate date, you will be issued a refund (as outlined below). Note that the VIP and Door Times listed for your live-events are subject to change and you should always double check communications and event times with the venue. Changes to streaming event times will be communicated by Veeps on behalf of the Artist to the Fan’s chosen communication method.
h. Refunds. As noted above, all sales are final and Packages are non-refundable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the limited circumstances that we issue you a refund for a Package due to a canceled event (which we may do in our sole discretion), we will issue a refund of the Package face value paid. You agree that you will not attempt to evade, avoid, or circumvent any refund prohibitions in any manner with regard to the Package you purchased. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you will not contact us to seek a refund or exchange from us when we are prohibited from providing one by the Artist, and you will not dispute or otherwise seek a "chargeback" from the company whose credit card you used to purchase the Package from the Site. Should you do so, your tickets may be canceled, and we may, in our sole discretion, refuse to honor pending and future ticket purchases made from all credit card accounts or online accounts on which such chargebacks have been made, and may prohibit all persons in whose name the credit card accounts exist and any person who accesses any associated online account or credit card or who otherwise breaches this provision from using the Site.
i. Addition Terms Applicable to Packages.
i. Package Orders. Packages are sold on a first come first served basis and while quantities last. It is each Fan’s responsibility to check your order. If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation page or email) after submitting payment information, or if you experience an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm whether or not your order has been placed. Only you may be aware of any problems that may occur during the purchase process. We will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation.
ii. Live-Event Tickets Not Included. By purchasing a Package, you are NOT purchasing tickets to the live event that is tied to the Package unless it is expressly stated otherwise. You must purchase tickets to the live event separately. If you fail to purchase such tickets, you will not be able to use the Package and you will not be issued a refund or be entitled to any other makeup date for such Package.
iii. Venue Changes. In the case that a live event is relocated to a different venue, we will endeavor to honor the Package for the new venue and a refund will not generally be given. Exact refund and exchange policies are determined on a show-by-show basis by the venues and performers.
iv. License and Ejection. A Package is a revocable license and we may refuse to honor it in certain circumstances. A Package may not redeemed for cash. Breach of terms or rules will terminate your license to redeem your Package without refund. Live and streaming event providers and Artists reserve the right, without refund of any amount paid, to refuse admission to, eject, or refuse streaming service to any person whose conduct is deemed disorderly, who uses vulgar or abusive language or who fails to comply with event provider or Artist rules. If you are denied admission to the event, ejected from an event, or refused streaming service, you will forfeit the Package and not be entitled to a refund.
v. Recording, Transmission and Exhibition at Live Events. You agree that with regard to live events, the Package is a public event and that your appearance and actions inside and outside the venue where the live event occurs are public in nature, and that you have no expectation of privacy with regard to your actions or conduct when redeeming a Package. You grant permission to us, the event provider(s) and the artists, to utilize your name, image, likeness, acts, poses, plays, appearance, movements, and statements in any live or recorded audio, video, or photographic display or other transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the live event (regardless of whether before, during or after play or performance) for any purpose, in any manner, in any medium or context now known or hereafter developed, without further authorization from, or compensation to, you or anyone acting on your behalf.
You agree that you will not take pictures or make any video, audio or any other recording during the Package live event nor will you post any such recording to social media or make any such recording publicly available. If you violate these provisions, in addition to seeking monetary damages against you, we, the event provider, or the Artist may seek an injunction against you to take down such recordings and you agree that such party will not have to post a bond to seek such an injunction.
vi. You Are Subject to Search at Live Events. You and your belongings may be searched on entry to the Package live event. You consent to such searches and waive any related claims that may arise. If you elect not to consent to such searches, you may be denied entry to the Package live event without refund or other compensation. For the underlying live event, you must comply with the venue or facility rules (including rules regarding entry). Under certain facility rules, certain items may not be brought into the premises, including without limitation, alcohol, drugs, controlled substances, cameras, recording devices, laser pointers, strobe lights, irritants (e.g., artificial noisemakers), bundles and containers.
vii. Additional Terms Applicable to Streaming Event Package Orders. Veeps is not liable for troubleshooting issues, Internet loading, or capacity issues if these cause fans to miss any part of the stream. Veeps does not assist with the production of the stream, or what is scheduled by the Artist as part of a streaming event, including merchandise included in a streaming Package, the length of a stream, and the ability to rewatch the stream at all or for any period of time after the livestream has taken place. For clarification, it is in the Artist’s sole discretion whether to leave a stream posted after the live streaming event has taken place and Veeps cannot guarantee that a stream will be made available for replay at all or for any particular period of time. Veeps is not liable for any issues on the Artist's end when streaming, the artists team can only approve refunds if this issue arises. All sales are final on Veeps as mentioned in our FAQ and will not be waived without extensive documentation on the request.
Fans may not photograph, film, or otherwise record streaming events and may not post any such photographs or recordings to social media or make any such recording publicly available without the Artist’s prior written permission in each instance. If you violate these provisions, in addition to seeking monetary damages against you, we, the event provider, or the Artist may seek an injunction against you to take down such recordings and you agree that such party will not have to post a bond to seek such an injunction.
i. General. Veeps offers Artists the option to implement a donation feature with regard to a specific event, Package, or other service offering (the “Donation Services”). Charities are selected by the Artist in their sole discretion and Artists are responsible for vetting all organizations before utilizing the Donation Services. All information and content provided by Veeps relating to the Donation Services is for informational purposes only, and Veeps does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, timeliness or reliability of any such information or content. No content is intended to provide financial, legal, tax or other professional advice. Before making any decisions regarding any campaigns, charities, donations, or any information or content relating to the Donation Services, you should consult your financial, legal, tax or other professional advisor as appropriate. You acknowledge that all information and content accessed by you using the Donation Services is at your own risk.
ii. For Artists. Veeps has no control over your use of the Donation Services and hereby disclaims all liability in this regard to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. We do not guarantee that the Donation Services will obtain a certain amount of donations or any donations at all. We do not endorse any charity, campaign, Artist, or cause and we make no guarantee, express or implied, that any information provided through the Donation Services is accurate. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the outcome or success of any campaign through the Donation Services. You, as an Artist, must make the final determination as to the value and appropriateness of soliciting any User, campaign, or event through the Donation Services. If you choose to implement the Donation Services as an Artist, you will indemnify, defend, and hold Veeps harmless from and against any and all third party claims arising from or relating to your use of the Donation Services, including your choice of receiving organization.
iii. For Donors. Veeps has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by, an Artist with regard to the Donation Services and hereby disclaims all liability in this regard to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. All donations are made at your own risk. When you make a donation through the Donation Services, it is your responsibility to understand how your money will be used. Veeps is not responsible for any offers, promises, rewards or promotions made or offered through the Donation Services. We do not and cannot verify the information that Artists or receiving organizations supply, nor do we represent or guarantee that the donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by an Artist or receiving organization or in accordance with applicable laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we take possible fraudulent activity and the misuse of funds raised very seriously. If you have reason to believe that an Artist or receiving organization is not raising or using the funds for their stated purpose, please contact us at [email protected]
a. Packages. Artists set the pricing for each of your Packages, although we may make suggestions or temporarily suspend your Package offering if we feel that it was priced in error. We will collect a fifteen percent (15%) transaction fee for each Package purchase (the Fan will pay this amount and we will retain it and you shall have no right to any such amounts). After deduction of our transaction fee, we will deduct all applicable payment processing fees. After such fees are deducted, we will remit all of the revenues to you reasonably promptly following the Package event date (assuming that you fulfilled your obligations with respect to the Package).
b. Withholdings. Income generated by foreign individuals/corporations at US based venues will be subject to Federal withholdings. Please visit the IRS website for more details. A valid W9 or W-BEN must be provided for funds to be released. As the seller, you are ultimately responsible for any and all taxes associated with your package. We are registered to remit sales tax in the following states (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming). Veeps will remit sales tax on your behalf in these states for the VIP experiences that you sell. Sales tax will be added to the VIP experience and charged to customers as a separate line item, unless otherwise stated in package details. In the event that your package includes merchandise, it will be your sole responsibility to calculate and remit any sales, use, excise or gross receipt taxes imposed on merchandise items in states that do not tax the VIP experience.

a. Applicable Law. These Terms and all claims relating to the use of the Site or our Services will be subject to the laws of the State of California, United States of America, without regard to any conflicts of law principles.
b. Informal Resolution. If you have any dispute with us, you agree that before taking any formal action, you will contact us at [email protected], provide a brief, written description of the dispute, your contact information (including your username, if your dispute relates to an account) and your requested relief. If you and we do not resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days of our receipt of your notice, you may begin the arbitration process described below.
c. Arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, or to products or services sold or distributed by us or through us, will be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court, subject only to those exceptions set forth below. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to: Veeps, Inc., 1025 N. Brand Blvd Suite 230, Glendale, CA 91202 ATTN: CEO. You may download the forms located at http://www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures or, if applicable, its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, and any applicable supplemental rules including its Consumer Arbitration Standards of Minimum Fairness. The JAMS Rules are available online at http://www.jamsadr.com or by calling (800) 352-5267. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS's rules. You will be responsible for those fees, and in no event will we pay for attorneys' fees. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the Los Angeles, California.
We each agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action.
You agree that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by and construed in accordance with federal law to the fullest extent possible.
This arbitration agreement is intended to be broadly interpreted, and will survive termination of these Terms. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would.
d. Waiver of Jury Trial. You agree to waive any right you may have to go to court and have a judge or jury trial (other than small claims court as provided below).
e. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. All claims and disputes within the scope of these Terms must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis, and claims of more than one user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with those of any other User.
i. Each party will retain the right to assert claims in small claims court in the United States if the claim and the parties are within the jurisdiction of such small claims court.
ii. If a claim involves the conditional license granted to you as described in the Ownership of Content and Grant of Conditional License section above, either of us may file a lawsuit in a federal or state court located within Los Angeles, California, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
iii. In the event that the arbitration agreement in these Terms is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Los Angeles, California, and we both consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
