2. DESCRIPTION OF RACE REGISTRATION ONLINE (DBA 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY)
5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY provides an effective, yet simple means for Organizers and planners of events (“Organizers”) to collect event registration fees from registered users who wish to attend such events (“Buyers”). After visiting the Site to fill out information about their events including pricing, location, products, charities, etc., Organizers may set up collecting event registration fees online directly from Buyers. Payments are transacted through the RACE ENTRY payment processing gateway (the “Gateway”). For more information, please see https://www.5Keventsorg. These Terms and Conditions apply to both Organizers and Buyers alike.
3. PAYMENT METHODS
Depending on the payment processing option the Organizer elects when using the Service, monetary payments will be made to the Organizer by 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY/RACE ENTRY. There is one form of payment processing for Organizers which requires the use of the Gateway for event registration fee collection.
(a) Payment Process
If an Organizer elects to use the Service to collect event registration fees, payment processing is directly handled by 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY. Under the Service, (i) 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY will collect all event registration fees on behalf of the Organizer from the Buyer and deduct all applicable service charges from the event registration fees passed along to the Organizer.; (ii) 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY will distribute all payments to the Organizer (event registration fees minus applicable service charges) at the address, or direct deposit details that the Organizer accurately provides on the Site; and (iii) 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY will submit payment for the balance due to the Organizer within fifteen (15) business days after the event end date for the event to which the registration fees correspond, provided that 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY reserves the right to withhold funds at any time as 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY determines to be necessary for the processing and settlement of all returns, disputed charges, customer complaints, allegations of fraud and other discrepancies. Payments will not be distributed until a minimum of $100 has been processed through the 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY software, unless the payment is the final distribution for the year. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in U.S. Dollars, or other foreign currencies accepted by 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY. For all sales, fees, charges, and funds paid in foreign currency, 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY will collect and disperse the funds in the foreign currency used.
(i) The Organizer has the responsibility to communicate its refund policy to Buyers and to issue refunds on the behalf of Buyers via the Service.

Refunds issued by Organizer will be processed within thirty (30) days after Organizer instructs the issuance of the refunds via the Service. No payments shall be made to an Organizer from 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY with respect to any event that is cancelled.

All communications or disputes regarding refunds are between the Organizer and Buyer and 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY will not be responsible or liable for refunds or the lack thereof issued in the course of the use of the Full-Service option.
(ii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, whether you are using the Service as an Organizer, Buyer or otherwise, you acknowledge and agree that 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY shall have the right to force a refund of any or all funds at any time for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY receives complaints from a substantial number (as determined by 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY in its sole discretion) of Buyers with respect to an Organizer or the applicable event, or 5Kevents.org LLC / RACE ENTRY determines in its sole discretion that Organizer has engaged in any fraudulent activity or made any misrepresentations.
