You accept that we may revise this agreement from time to time in the future, as we deem fit, and that your use of the services after such a revision will be deemed as your consent to being bound by the revised terms.


ACCEPTING THE TERMS

Whether you are a visitor simply browsing the Def Events & Beyond site or you are a user who has registered on the site for our services, you agree to be bound by this agreement as long as you use the information, tools, features, and functionality located on the Def Events & Beyond site.

If you wish to register on the site as a user and make use of our services, you must read this agreement to the end and indicate your acceptance during the registration process.

Alternatively, you must have the authority to bind a company/entity to this agreement if you are acting on behalf of a company or entity.


DEF EVENTS & BEYOND’S SERVICE PROVISION

We provide a socially active atmosphere for families/individuals from both the Deaf/Hard of hearing and hearing community to enjoy and have fun.

Based on the information received from users, we may also present information relating to third-party products or services.

You understand and accept that the provided service is not intended to provide legal, tax, or financial advice to you, and you may not deem the services as professional advice or as the basis for any mortgage, insurance, or legal transaction.

Should you arrange any insurance, mortgage or financial product resulting from your use of the Def Events & Beyond service, you agree that this will be done so on an execution only basis and not an advisory basis.


NO FINANCIAL ADVICE

As allowed by the law, we provide the site, its materials, and other included information to provide only general advice in relation to financial services. Users are advised to always consult a financial advisor, licensed accountant and/or financial planner to ensure that a particular product is suitable for them, as we shall under no circumstances assume responsibility for any consequence relating directly or indirectly to any action or inaction that you take based on the information, services or other materials on our site. The service intends to only assist you in your financial organization and decision-making and is broad in scope.  


REGISTRATION TO USE THE SERVICE

You must register as a user so as to be able to access and use most parts of our site. To do so, you will be required to provide your email address and a password to complete the registration process. You can use these details to create an individual user account for yourself. 

You hereby represent that the information that you provide to us in your use of the service, both during the registration process and afterward, is true, comprehensive, current, and not misleading. 

You must also update your account information regularly so that it remains accurate, true, and complete always. We may delete your account if we find that the information that you provide is false, incorrect or deliberately misleading.

We may reject the use of any password, username, or email address for any reason whatsoever in our sole discretion.

You are fully and personally responsible for all the activities that occur under your account, whether or not you authorized such activity. This is because you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account details and password. You must immediately bring to our knowledge any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. Your right to access and use Def Events & Beyond and the service shall be deemed personal to you only, which means that you may not transfer your account to any other person or entity. You may only use Def Events & Beyond for lawful purposes.

You may not create more than one account.

Your access and use of Def Events & Beyond may from time to time be interrupted for several reasons, including but not restricted to the malfunction of equipment, maintenance or repair of Def Events & Beyond, periodic updating, or other actions that Def Events & Beyond, in its sole discretion, may elect to take. 


SUBSCRIPTIONS

This is not a free service.

You accept that this is a subscription service and that your membership only takes effect once we have received payment of your subscription fees. We offer different subscription packages, at different prices, and we ask that you familiarize yourself with the specific offerings of your preferred package before subscribing.
Please note that confirmation of your account registration is contingent upon the successful payment of your first subscription.


CANCELLATIONS

You may cancel the service if you are no longer interested in using the service. You must, however, cancel your account at least seven days before the next billing date. Failure to do that means that you will be liable for the next billing cycle.


REFUNDS

You understand and accept that there are no refunds for our services. The service is prepaid, and we will not be liable for any refund under any circumstance. We advise users who are no longer interested in using our services to cancel their subscriptions instead in line with our cancellation policy.


TIMELINESS AND ACCURACY OF INFORMATION

Def Events & Beyond cannot always predict or anticipate technical difficulties as well as other problems, which may result in your failure to obtain information or loss of data, personalization settings, and/or other service interruptions.

We will also send you electronic alerts to the email address provided by you as the primary email address for Def Events & Beyond. 

You must inform us if your email address or mobile device account changes. 

You can also opt to have alerts sent to your mobile device that accepts text messages. 

You accept that changes to your email address or mobile number will apply to all of your alerts.

We will never include your passcode in any message we send to you because alerts are not encrypted. However, such alerts may include your Def Events & Beyond Login ID as well as certain information about your accounts.

You understand and accept that any alerts provided to you through our services may be prevented or delayed by an assortment of factors.
