4. Using the Service
FastBar can be used by three different categories of users: (i) Event organizers (“Organizers”); (ii) Event workers (“Workers”); and (ii) Event attendees (“Attendees”).
Organizers: Organizers may utilize FastBar to enable their Event to accept cashless payments and to monitor transactions in real time;
Workers: Workers may utilize FastBar to register Attendees at the Event, and to process payments by scanning Attendee wristbands using the Worker mobile applications provided by FastBar. When you download the appropriate App, you will be prompted to enable location tracking, and then enter the email and PIN provided by your employer. You will then utilize the App in accordance with your employer’s instructions.
Attendees: As an Attendee, you may utilize FastBar to pay for food and drink purchased at an Event. When you register to use FastBar, you will provide us with a Payment Card or cash. That information is then tied to a microchip that utilizes Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The chip is embedded in a wristband, badge, card, or other item chosen by the Event Organizer (“Wristband or Other Item”), which you will then present at the Event to make purchases. An Event Worker, using the appropriate FastBar App, will scan the Wristband or Other Item with a mobile device, and your purchase is automatically charged to your Payment Card or deducted from your cash balance. You can register to use FastBar in two different ways:
You can pre-register on the FastBar website: If you pre-register on the FastBar or Organizer/ticketing website, we will ask you for your name, phone number, and the information for the Payment Card you will be using to purchase items at the Event. If you provide us with your phone number, you are providing us with consent to send you text messages confirming your purchases at the Event. When you go to the Event, you will be given a Wristband or Other Item tied to your FastBar account that you will use to make purchases.
You can register at the Event: If you register at the Event, you will be asked to provide a Payment Card, which will be scanned at the Event, and you will be given a Wristband or Other Item to use for charging items to the Payment Card you provided. You may also load cash onto the Wristband or Other Item, in which case the terms set forth in Section (f) will apply.
Using the FastBar App: The Company has created an Attendee App which will track your purchases in real time, and provide you with a running tab. At the end of the evening, you can use the App to close out your tab. You are not required to download the App in order to use FastBar as an Attendee.
The FastBar NFC Chip: When you use FastBar as an Attendee, you will be paying for items using a Wristband or Other Item that incorporates the NFC chip that is tied to your Payment Card or cash balance. The Wristband or Other Item must be handled with the same precautions as those taken when using a credit card or cash. Under no circumstance shall the Company be held liable for any unauthorized charges that take place using the Wristband or Other Item.
Using Cash: If you register at the Event and fund your Wristband or Other Item using cash, any unused amount remaining at the conclusion of the Event will not be refunded.
Preauthorized Charges: If you use a Payment Card for your FastBar charges, you are agreeing to pay for all items purchased at the Event using the card you provided. In addition, Event Organizers have the option of preauthorizing on or more charges to your card, of a certain amount, to ensure that the card has at least that amount of credit available. If an Event Organizer has configured this option, you are agreeing to permit the Event Organizer to process on or more pre-authorizations.

If you believe that your content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with the following information: (i) a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (iv) your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and an email address; (v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

The Service may be available via the Apple App Store platform (for Apple devices) or the Google Play Store (for Android devices). Apple and Google shall be referred to collectively as “Platform Providers.” Regardless of whether you are using the IOS or Google version of the Service, the following additional terms apply:
These Terms are between you and us, and not with the Platform Provider. The Platform Provider is not responsible for the Service or its functions, and has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance or support services with respect thereto. All maintenance and support are the sole responsibility of the Company.
In unlikely event of any failure of the Service to operate in accordance with any applicable warranty, you may notify the Platform Provider, it will refund the purchase price; and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Platform Provider will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the Service, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be your sole responsibility.
The Platform Provider is not responsible for addressing claims brought by you or any third party that relate to the Service, or your possession or use thereof, including (but not limited to): (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the Service fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. The Company is solely responsible for addressing any such claims.
In the event of any third-party claim that the Service or your possession or use thereof infringes that third party’s intellectual property rights, the Company, and not the Platform Provider, will be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim.
You expressly represent and warrant that you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
The Platform Provider and its subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms, and the Platform Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
