1. Educational Design’s Services and Responsibilities/Breach. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, and upon the receipt and deposit by Educational Design of Purchaser’s payment, Educational Design agrees to provide each holder of a Ticket (“Ticketholder”) a limited license to attend the Event described on the Ticket. A more detailed description of the Event may be found on Educational Design’s website (www.thedailycafe.com) (the “Website”); however, these descriptions represent a provisional agenda only and are subject to change at any time by Educational Design. Educational Design makes no warranties regarding any Event, except as expressly stated herein. In the event that any Ticketholder breaches the terms of this limited license, Educational Design may, in addition to all other remedies provided by law or equity, bring an action for an injunction against Purchaser and the Ticketholder to prevent any further breach of the covenants contained in this Agreement. 

2. Payment. Purchaser represents and warrants that any payment or billing information that Purchaser provides to Educational Design is valid and accurate in all respects. Purchaser agrees to update any and all such information promptly upon a change thereto. By providing payment or billing information to Educational Design, Purchaser hereby authorizes Educational Design to charge Purchaser’s payment card or other account for the purchase price of any Tickets ordered, as well as any fees or other charges (such as taxes) that may be due in connection with any transactions Purchaser requests from Educational Design. 

2.1 Orders by Payment Card. Tickets ordered with payment cards shall be made using the appropriate payment card processing portal located on the Website. The payment portal may contain additional terms of use (“TOU”), which are incorporated herein by this reference. Upon receipt and deposit of Purchaser’s full payment by payment card, the Purchaser shall be issued the Tickets, subject to availability. 

2.2 Orders by Check. Tickets ordered with check shall be made using the purchase form (“Purchase Form”) found on the Website. The Purchase Form may contain additional terms and conditions for Purchaser’s order, which are incorporated herein by this reference. Upon receipt and deposit of Purchaser’s full payment by check, the Purchaser shall be issued the Tickets, subject to availability. 

2.3 Orders by Purchase Order. Tickets ordered by a purchase order shall be made using the Purchase Form. Upon receipt of a purchase order, Educational Design shall issue Purchaser an invoice for the Tickets (“Invoice”), indicating the amount due, payment terms, and other terms and conditions. Unless otherwise indicated in an Invoice, all payments on purchase orders shall be due within thirty (30) days from the date the Invoice is issued. Any terms and conditions contained in the Purchase Form or Invoice are incorporated herein by this reference. Purchaser agrees that by sending Educational Design a purchase order, Purchaser shall be bound by the terms of this Agreement, including without limitation, those terms relating to payments and late fees.

Any amounts owing by Purchaser that remain unpaid when due shall (a) accrue interest ("Default Interest") at the lower of 12% per annum or the highest rate allowable by law until paid in full and (b) shall be assessed a late fee ("Late Fee") equal to five percent (5%) of the sum due. Default Interest shall be calculated on all amounts outstanding, including any unpaid Late Fees.

2.5 Chargebacks. In the event that Educational Design suffers a chargeback or any other monetary loss because of invalid financial or payment account information provided by Purchaser, or because of any other act or omission by Purchaser in violation of this Agreement, Educational Design shall be entitled to recover from Purchaser, in addition to any amounts otherwise owing, its reasonable costs of collection, including without limitation, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys' fees, and court costs. 

3. Ticket Availability. Educational Design makes no warranties as to the availability of Tickets for any Event. Submitting an order, whether by payment card, check, or Purchase Order does not guarantee the issuance of Tickets.

4. Third Party Processors. Payment for the Tickets, delivery of those Tickets, and the designation and/or substitution of a Ticketholder may be processed by a third party processor (“Processor”).

Upon the issuance of Tickets, Purchaser is not entitled to cancel, reduce, or otherwise modify any purchase order received by Educational Design; provided that Purchaser may arrange for substitute attendees to participate pursuant to the Substitution Policy set forth herein. In addition to the above, in no event shall the Purchaser be entitled to a refund in the event that the Purchaser is unable to attend an Event, including as a result of inclement weather; transportation issues (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling of flights); war or acts of terrorism; disease, contamination, or other health threat; or riot, strike, or other disturbance.

In the event that any Event is canceled, including as a result of any Act of God, Educational Design, at its discretion, may either (i) reschedule the Event for a later time; or (ii) provide the Purchaser with a refund for any Ticket to a cancelled Event. In the event that Educational Design, LLC reschedules an Event, Purchase shall not be entitled to a refund; instead, Purchaser shall be permitted to exchange any Tickets to a canceled Event to the rescheduled Event. 

8. Substitution Policy. At any time prior to the occurrence of an Event, Purchaser may amend the names of any Ticketholders for such Event; provided that any such substitution shall be subject to any fees, terms, or restrictions of any Processor.
