Terms of Service Overview
Below is an overview of our Terms of Service for our “Platform”, which means any website, application, or service we offer.
You should read the complete Terms of Service because that document (and not this overview) is our legally binding agreement.
The Terms of Service includes information about your legal rights and covers areas such as automatic subscription renewals,
limitations of liability, resolution of disputes by mandatory arbitration rather than a judge or jury in a court of law, and
a class action waiver
Your Relationship with CrowdQuestion
By using our Platform, you are agreeing to our Terms of Service. That is a legally binding agreement between you and
If you break the rules, we may suspend or terminate your account.
We charge for certain aspects of our Platform, and some of these fees are billed on a regular and recurring
basis (unless you disable auto-renewal or cancel your subscription).
CrowdQuestion Groups, Organizers and Members
Organizers may establish membership criteria for their own CrowdQuestion groups. While there is probably a
CrowdQuestion group out there for everyone, not every CrowdQuestion group is for you. If you can’t find the right
group, you can easily start your own CrowdQuestion group.
Organizers may charge fees for memberships or events.
Using our Platform involves meeting real people and doing real things in the real world, which can sometimes lead to
unexpected situations. We can’t control what happens in the real world, and we are not responsible for it. You should
use common sense and good judgment when interacting with others.
Your Content and Content of Others
You are responsible for your “Content”, which means any information, material, or other content posted to our Platform.
Your Content must comply with our Terms of Service, which includes the Usage and Content Policies, Group Policies,
Organizer and Leadership Standards, Member Restrictions, Payment Policies, and Trademark Usage Guidelines. Your Content
is also subject to our Intellectual Property Dispute Policies.
We do not own the Content that you post. However, we do require that you provide us a license to use this
Content in order for us to operate, improve, promote, and protect CrowdQuestion and our Platform for the benefit
of you and others.
We are not responsible for Content that members post or the communications that members send using our Platform.
We generally don’t review Content before it’s posted. If you see Content that violates our Terms of Service,
you may report inappropriate Content to us.
We try hard to make sure that our Platform is always available and working, but we cannot guarantee it will be.
Occasionally things may not go exactly as planned. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
We are continually improving our Platform. This means that we may modify or discontinue portions of our Platform.
By using our Platform, you agree to the limitations of liability and release in our Terms of Service.
Except as specified in our Terms of Service, you also agree to resolve any disputes you may have with us
through arbitration, and you are waiving your right to seek relief from a judge or jury in a court of law,
except as otherwise provided for in the Terms of Service. Claims can only be brought individually, and not as
part of a class action.
Terms of Service
Last Updated: January 5, 2019
Our Terms of Service contain important information about your legal rights. To make it easier to understand,
we have provided summaries and tips in these gray boxes. These summaries are not part of the official terms,
and it is important for you to read the language in each section carefully.
You agree to follow some basic rules when using CrowdQuestion’s Platform.
These rules are described in the Terms of Service, including the related policies and
guidelines discussed below. We may change these rules.
CrowdQuestion enables you and other members to arrange off-line, real-world
CrowdQuestion groups and CrowdQuestion events. The terms “CrowdQuestion,” “we,” “us,”
and “our” include RM4Tech LLC. and our affiliates. We use the terms “you” and “your” to mean
any person using our Platform, and any organization or person using the Platform on an organization’s
behalf. We use the word “Platform” to mean any website, application, or service offered by
CrowdQuestion, including content we offer and electronic communications we send. We provide our
Platform to you subject to these Terms of Service. We use the terms “Terms of Service” and “Agreement”
interchangeably to mean this document together with our Usage and Content Policies, Group Policies,
Organizer and Leadership Standards, Member Restrictions, Payment Policies, and Trademark Usage
Guidelines. Your use of the Platform signifies that you agree to this Agreement. If you are using
the Platform for an organization, you agree to this Agreement on behalf of that organization, and
represent you have authority to bind that organization to the terms contained in this Agreement. If
you do not or are unable to agree to this Agreement, do not use our Platform.
Tip: We have included summaries and tips to provide an overview of some legal concepts and answer
common questions, but the text of these summaries and tips are for your convenience only and are
intended to have no legal effect.
Tip: These Terms of Service are an agreement between you and CrowdQuestion and not between you and
any other member. For more information, see our FAQ page explaining the parties to our Terms of
Revisions to this Agreement.
We may modify this Agreement from time to time. When we do, we will provide notice to you by
publishing the most current version and revising the date at the top of this page. If we make any
material change to this Agreement, we will provide additional notice to you, such as by sending you
an email or displaying a prominent notice on our Platform. By continuing to use the Platform after
any changes come into effect, you agree to the revised Agreement.
Your Account and Membership
You need to be at least 18 years old to use our Platform. CrowdQuestion organizers control
the Content and membership of their CrowdQuestion groups. However, we may remove any Content you post or
terminate your account at any time.
Our Platform is available to anyone who is at least 18 years old. You represent that you are at
least 18. Additional eligibility requirements for a particular portion of our Platform may be set
by any member who has the ability to moderate or manage that portion of our Platform. For example,
the eligibility requirements for a CrowdQuestion group or CrowdQuestion event may be set by the
organizers of that group.
Suspension of Your Account.
We may modify, suspend or terminate your account or access to the Platform if, in our sole
discretion, we determine that you have violated this Agreement, including any of the policies or
guidelines that are part of this Agreement, that it is in the best interest of the CrowdQuestion
community, or to protect our brand or Platform. We also may remove accounts of members who are inactive
for an extended period of time.
A member who has the ability to moderate or manage a particular portion of our Platform also has the ability,
in his or her sole discretion, to modify, suspend, or terminate your access to that portion of the Platform.
Account Information and Security.
When you register, you provide us with some basic information, including an email address and a
password. Keep your email address and other account information current and accurate. Also,
you agree to maintain the security and confidentiality of your password (or else we may need to
disable your account). You alone are responsible for anything that happens from your failure to
maintain that security and confidentiality, such as by sharing your account credentials with others.
If someone is using your password, notify us immediately.
Fees, Payments, and Offers
Summary: We charge for certain features on our Platform. If you’re a CrowdQuestion group organizer,
you’re responsible for paying for organizer subscription fees related to your CrowdQuestion group.
These fees are billed on a regular and recurring basis (unless you disable auto-renewal or cancel your
subscription), and may change in the future. Additionally, some organizers charge money for participation in a
CrowdQuestion group or CrowdQuestion event.
Fees Charged by CrowdQuestion.
Use of some of the features on our Platform are free, and we charge fees for other features.
We may in the future implement a new fee, or modify an existing fee, for certain current or future
features of our Platform. If we implement a new or modified fee, we will give you advanced notice
such as by posting changes on our Platform or sending you an email. You agree to pay those fees and
any associated taxes for your continued use of the applicable service. Unless otherwise stated, all
fees and all transactions are in U.S. dollars. All fees are exclusive of applicable federal, state,
local, or other taxes. Organizer subscriptions are non-transferable.
Fees Charged by Organizers.
Organizers may impose fees related to particular portions of the Platform, such as member dues for a
CrowdQuestion group or an event fee for a CrowdQuestion event. The decision to charge fees and the
amount of those fees is at the discretion of those organizers. We reserve the right to initiate
refunds of fees paid to organizers, when appropriate, even in cases of fees paid through a third-party
payment service. Refunds that we initiate, if any, will be governed by our Payment Policies. Organizers
may also have their own refund policies, so long as they are consistent with and do not limit members’
ability to receive refunds under our Payment Policies. Payments made to organizers via the Platform are
made through a third-party payment service provider. If a member pays a fee to an organizer via the
Platform, the member authorizes the organizer (and the organizer’s applicable payment service provider)
to charge the designated payment method for the total amount of the fees, including any applicable taxes
and other charges. Certain types of fees charged by organizers may be billed on a recurring basis.
If billed on a recurring basis, you authorize the organizer to charge the applicable fee to the
designated payment method. You may cancel auto-renewal at any time.
Tip: You should use common sense in deciding whether to make a payment to any organizer.
We cannot ensure that organizers will use payments as they promise or as you expect. You should
check the refund policy of the CrowdQuestion group before making any payments to an organizer.
Payments to CrowdQuestion.
Organizers are responsible for paying subscription and any other applicable fees to
CrowdQuestion on time and through our approved payment methods. Organizers who allow their
organizer subscription to lapse are subject to removal as the organizer of the CrowdQuestion
groups associated with their account, and their CrowdQuestion group (along with all of the information
and Content associated with or posted to that CrowdQuestion group) may be terminated or transferred
to another member. If we terminate, suspend, or remove your account in connection with violation of
this Agreement, we are not obligated to refund any organizer subscription fees paid to CrowdQuestion.
You may only pay organizer fees to CrowdQuestion using a valid payment method acceptable to us, as
specified via the Platform. You represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the payment method
you designate via the Platform. You authorize us (and our designated third-party payment processors)
to charge your designated payment method for the total amount of any fees you owe to CrowdQuestion,
including any applicable taxes and other charges. If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid,
or is otherwise not acceptable to us, your payment may be suspended or cancelled. We reserve the right
to correct, or to instruct our payment processors to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment
has already been requested or received. We also may issue refunds, or instruct our payment processors
to issue refunds, in accordance with our Payment Policies.
Tip: To learn more about organizer subscriptions and what happens if they expire,
see this FAQ on Expired Plans.
Automatic Subscription Renewals.
Fees for certain aspects of our Platform may be billed on either a recurring basis or on a one-time
basis. If billed on a recurring basis, the fees are payable in advance of the applicable period
specified via the Platform with no refunds. We will automatically bill you for each renewal period
until cancellation. By purchasing any feature or other aspect of our Platform for which we charge,
you authorize us to keep your payment current by charging your credit card account (or any other means
of payment used by you) the applicable fee. While you may cancel auto-renewal or cancel your
subscription at any time, you won’t be issued a refund except in our sole discretion.
Tip: To cancel your organizer subscription, see this FAQ on Modifying Subscriptions.
We may offer free trials of subscriptions and other products on our Platform.
We will inform you of the length of the free trial, your renewal period, and the date
and amount of your first payment. After your free trial ends, your paid subscription will begin
and we will automatically bill you for each renewal period until cancellation. You can cancel
automatic subscription renewals at any time according to the terms and procedures described above.
Third Party Payment Processors.
An organizer that uses the Platform to accept payments from other members, must comply with the
terms and conditions of the third party provider of the applicable payment service used to receive
the payment. CrowdQuestion does not provide those payment services, is not a party to your agreement
with the applicable third-party provider, and will not be liable or responsible for your use of those
third-party payment services.
Third Party Transactions.
Your CrowdQuestion group or its members may receive offers from third parties, such as discounts,
sponsorships, or other benefits. CrowdQuestion is not involved in any dealings or payments between
you and third parties, and these Terms of Service do not govern such transactions.
CrowdQuestion Commission Payments
CrowdQuestion pays a 20% commission for each person who subscribes to a VIP subscription that initially signed up for their CrowdQuestion account using your promo code. The promo code is the Host's Host Name or Quick Join Event Link. For Crowd Members, the promo code is their email address. You will receive 20% of the monthly subscription price they pay for the entirety of their VIP subscription.
To receive your commission payments, you must link your PayPal account to your CrowdQuestion account. CrowdQuestion will send payments to your PayPal account quarterly (every ninety days).
If you do not get a payment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not link your PayPal account, we will be unable to send you your payment. We will not keep a commission credit for you.
We reserve the right to stop offering commission payments at any time. If this happens, we will provide a thirty-day notice and your last commission payment.

how we collect and use information you provide about yourself and the information that may be associated with you,

such as the name and location that you provide during registration, and your membership in public
CrowdQuestion groups, may appear in search results. Our Platform is designed so that search engines
cannot see your Content that is within restricted areas of the Platform, such as private CrowdQuestion
groups. You can find additional information on our FAQ about Search Engine Visibility.

Warranty Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
Our Platform is provided to you “as is” and we make no warranties of any kind with respect to our Platform.
Our liability in connection with the Platform is limited to the fees you paid to us in the 12 months preceding
the claim or $100, whichever is greater.
Our Platform is provided to you “as is” and on an “as available” basis. We disclaim all
warranties and conditions of any kind, including but not limited to statutory warranties, and the
implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. We
also disclaim any warranties regarding (a) the reliability, timeliness, accuracy, and performance of

or resources provided through our Platform, (c) the results that may be obtained from the Platform,
and (d) the correction of any errors in the Platform, (e) any material or data obtained through the use

Limitation of Liability.
You agree that in no event shall any CrowdQuestion Parties be liable for any direct, indirect,
incidental, special, or consequential damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of
profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (even if any CrowdQuestion Parties have been
advised of the possibility of such damages) arising out of or in connection with (a) our Platform or
this Agreement or the inability to use our Platform (however arising, including our negligence), (b)
statements or conduct of or transactions with any member or third party on the Platform, (c) your use
of our Platform or transportation to or from CrowdQuestion events, attendance at CrowdQuestion events,
participation in or exclusion from CrowdQuestion groups or CrowdQuestion events and the actions of you
or others at CrowdQuestion events, or (d) any other matter relating to the Platform. Our liability to
you or any third parties in any circumstance is limited to the greater of $100 or the amount of fees,
if any, you paid to us in the 12 months prior to the action that may give rise to liability. The
limitations set forth above in this Section 8 will not limit or exclude liability for our gross
negligence, fraud, or intentional, malicious, or reckless misconduct.
If you have a dispute with CrowdQuestion, you agree to try to work it out directly with us first.
If we can’t work it out, with limited exceptions, you must submit any dispute with us to a neutral arbitrator
instead of taking the claim to a court of law. Claims can only be brought individually, and not as part of a class
action. CrowdQuestion has no obligation to get involved with any disputes you have with other members, although we
may try to facilitate a resolution.
Before making any claim, you and CrowdQuestion agree to try to resolve any disputes through good
faith discussions. We use the term “claim” in this Section 9 to mean any dispute, claim or controversy
arising out of or relating to your use of our Platform or this Agreement, including your participation
in CrowdQuestion events. You or CrowdQuestion may initiate this process by sending written notice
according to Section 11.2 describing the dispute and your proposed resolution. In the event that we
cannot resolve the issue within 30 business days of receipt of the initial notice, you or CrowdQuestion
may bring a claim in accordance with Section 9.2.
Except as set forth in Section 9.5, you agree to submit any claim to RM4Tech LLC, or its successor,
(“RM4TECH LLC”) for final and binding arbitration. In arbitration certain rights that you or we would
have in court may not be available, such as discovery or appeal. You and CrowdQuestion are each
expressly waiving any right to trial by judge or jury in a court of law. This agreement to arbitrate
shall apply regardless of whether the claim arises during or after any termination of this Agreement
or your relationship with CrowdQuestion.
Arbitration Time for Filing.
Any claim subject to arbitration must be filed within one year after the date the party asserting the
claim first knows or should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim, or the
shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
Either party may commence arbitration by filing a written demand for arbitration with RM4TECH LLC,
with a copy to the other party according to the notice procedures in Section 11.2. The arbitration
will be conducted in accordance with RM4TECH LLC Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures and any
other applicable rules that RM4TECH LLC requires (“RM4TECH LLC Rules”) in effect as of the demand for
arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law govern the
interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions. Any arbitration hearings will take
place in El Dorado County, California or elsewhere as required by RM4TECH LLC Rules. Your responsibility
to pay any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the RM4TECH LLC
Rules. The parties will cooperate with RM4TECH LLC and each other in scheduling the arbitration
proceedings, and in selecting one arbitrator from the appropriate RM4TECH LLC list with substantial
experience in resolving intellectual property and contract disputes. The arbitrator shall follow this
Agreement and, to the extent permitted by RM4TECH LLC Rules, can award costs, fees and expenses,
including attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party, except that the arbitrator shall not award
declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. Judgment
upon the award rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You or CrowdQuestion may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in El Dorado County,
California or any U.S. county where you live or work. You or CrowdQuestion may seek injunctive relief
from a court of competent jurisdiction in El Dorado County, California as necessary to protect the
intellectual property rights of you or CrowdQuestion pending the completion of arbitration.
CrowdQuestion may take action in court or arbitration to collect any fees or recover damages for, or
to seek injunctive relief relating to, Platform operations, or unauthorized use of our Platform or
intellectual property. Nothing in this Section 9 shall diminish CrowdQuestion’s right to modify,
suspend or terminate your account or access to our Platform under Section 2.2.
Arbitration Opt Out.
You may decline to resolve disputes through arbitration by emailing us at
arbitration-opt-out@CrowdQuestion.com within 30 days of the date you first agree to this Agreement.
Your email must include your full name, residential address, the email address registered to your
CrowdQuestion account, and a clear statement that you want to opt out of arbitration. If you opt out
according to this process, then Sections 9.2, 9.3, and 9.4 of this Agreement do not apply to you. This
opt-out does not affect any other sections of this Agreement, such as Sections 9.5 (Exceptions), 9.7
(Class Action Waiver), 11.5 (Governing Law), 11.6 (Judicial Forum), and 11.7 (Time for Filing).
Class Action Waiver.
You agree to resolve disputes with CrowdQuestion on an individual basis. You agree not to bring a
claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated or representative action. You are
expressly waiving any right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, private attorney
general actions and consolidation with other arbitrations.

Intellectual Property of Others.
CrowdQuestion respects the intellectual property of others, and we expect our members to do the same.
We may, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, remove or disable access to material that
infringes on the intellectual property rights of others. We may also restrict or terminate access to our
Platform to those who we believe to be repeat infringers. If you believe your intellectual property
rights have been violated, please review our Intellectual Property Dispute Policies.
