2. Obligations

2.1 Service Eligibility

Access to Innovation Roundtable Online Network (InnovationRoundtable.online) is primarily for innovation practitioners in large multinational firms. In addition, users of the Innovation Roundtable Online Network must be over 18 years old to access the Services. All applications for use of the Innovation Roundtable Online Network (a “Subscription”) are processed by Innovation Roundtable ApS, which reserves the right to reject applications. Criteria for Service Eligibility and rejections of applications for Subscriptions (and possible exceptions) are at the sole discretion of Innovation Roundtable ApS.

Innovation Roundtable ApS also reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate Subscriptions and access to the Innovation Roundtable Online Network in cases, including but not limited to:

  • Eligibility Criteria no longer being fulfilled;
  • Conduct or actions that violate the User Conduct norms (see section 3) or other norms contained in this User Agreement.
     

2.2 Registration and account

Below are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

  1. You will provide personal information. Providing accurate personal information including your name, details of employment, expertise, interests, etc. will help create a better experience when using our online network.
  2. You will register with a corporate email account only. We do not accept Gmail, Hotmail, or other non-corporate email addresses, as the Innovation Roundtable Online Network is primarily for innovation professionals and practitioners currently employed by large firms.
  3. You will not share the credentials of your account, let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account. You will not share the credentials of your account with, among others, the purpose of letting others use the resources stored in our online network. Your account is personal and associated to a license / personal user profile, and therefore you are the only one entitled to access our online network content.
  4. You will choose a strong and secure password, keep it secure and confidential. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse. Innovation Roundtable ApS is not responsible for the misuse of your account.
  5. In order to simplify the creation and activation process of a user account, we may use the data that participants at Innovation Roundtable® events might have submitted previously as their input for the event attendee list / mobile app. Should this case apply to you, by accepting these Terms and Conditions (User Agreement), you agree that we can use the data you have submitted previously for that purpose to pre-fill your user profile. You will be able to edit those details during the user activation process and at any later stage in the Profile section.
     

2.3 Access levels and subscriptions

Users are granted different access levels to the resources and features of the Innovation Roundtable Online Network, including free-of-charge (“Free Account”) and paid-for (“Paid Subscriptions" / “Licenses”). Innovation Roundtable ApS reserves the right to create tiers of Free- and Paid Subscriptions with different levels of access to the content on the Innovation Roundtable Online Network.

Upon expiration or termination of a Paid Subscription / License (by the user or Innovation Roundtable ApS), the user will be moved to a Free Account, thus potentially limiting access to content and features.

Whilst your account is strictly personal, a Subscription / License belongs to the entity that has purchased and paid for it and, if different from yourself, provided it to you for usage. Innovation Roundtable ApS will therefore comply with requests by the organization that has purchased and paid for a subscription to terminate the usage of such license on a specific user account and/or the transfer to another account.

In case of a request from a company to transfer an existing license to another individual, the eligibility of that person for a Subscription will be determined as per section “Service Eligibility”. Innovation Roundtable® reserves the right to reject the transfer of a Subscription to another account.

2.4. Payments

Innovation Roundtable ApS expects all payment obligations and conditions for Paid Subscriptions to be fulfilled promptly. Fees and relevant taxes may be added to our prices.

Failure to pay promptly will result in the termination of your Paid Subscription and consequent move to a Free Account. Also, you agree that:

  • The price of Paid Subscriptions will be displayed and charged in Euro (€)
  • Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates) from credit institutions.
  • We will calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase.
  • Your credit card information will be handled and, in case of recurring payment, stored by a PCI-compliant payment gateway (Stripe, Inc.). Innovation Roundtable ApS will only store user and billing information for administrative and operational purposes.
  • You agree to keep your contact (such as email) and payment information up to date. Impossibility to contact you and/or processing the payment can result in the suspension or termination of your Paid Subscription.
  • If you purchase a Paid Subscription, your selected payment method will be automatically charged at the start of each subscription period with the fees and taxes applicable to that period. Users have the option to deactivate automatic renewal and payment of their subscription in the “Membership – Subscription & Billing” tab of Account Settings.
  • The purchase of a Paid Subscription cannot be refunded at any time.
  • Should your license or account be suspended or terminated by Innovation Roundtable ApS, you are entitled to request a reimbursement of an amount pro-rata  to the remaining validity period of your paid license or the duration of the suspension period.

You can get a copy of your sales invoice through your account settings under Membership.
