The term “Host” refers to the company, entity, institution, organisation, or individual who is the public facing “brand” of the virtual or hybrid event (“Event”). A Host could be a company, or an individual.
If the Host enters into customer terms with HeySummit, such as the HeySummit’s Platform Terms or other HeySummit customer agreement (including agreements provided to the Host via a referral partner), it is a direct customer of HeySummit.
If the Host is not a direct customer of HeySummit, it typically means that the Host acquired the right to use the Services via a third party reseller or agency, in which case the Host’s use of the Services are governed by its agreement with that reseller or agency.
In each case above, the Host is subject to those separate customer and/or reseller or agency terms, and the Host’s Participants and Team Members are subject to these User Terms; provided however that if You are the individual who is both the Host and the named HeySummit account holder, these User Terms also apply to Your use of the account and Services in Your capacity as a Team Member.
Events are organised and administered by the Host, not HeySummit. We are a third party providing the Services and its incorporated technology platforms (the “Platform”) to facilitate an Event taking place. For the purpose of this Agreement, the Services includes the Platform.

The Host is solely responsible:
It is solely the Host’s responsibility to respond to and resolve any dispute between the Host and any Participant or Team Member. The Host may also block or revoke a User’s access to its Event at any time and in its sole discretion.
HeySummit’s customer success team and mechanisms may be used to support such resolutions but it will be up to the Host to ensure the relevant information is provided to HeySummit and to troubleshoot an adequate resolution for HeySummit to assist and is therefore still the sole responsibility of the Host.
The Host will remain responsible for any resolution and the support of HeySummit throughout the resolution processes.
