AWS Event Sponsorship Terms and Conditions

Last Updated: October 29, 2021

These AWS Event Sponsorship Terms & Conditions (these “Terms”) govern your sponsorship of AWS events. Please see Section 8 for definitions of certain capitalized terms used in these Terms.

1. Sponsorship Program.

1.1 Sponsored Events. You may sponsor AWS event(s) in accordance with these Terms (each such sponsored AWS event, a “Sponsored Event”) by completing a Sponsorship Order Form and paying the applicable Sponsorship Fee. If you do not meet all conditions and requirements listed in the Sponsorship Order Form, then we have the right to cancel the applicable benefits under the Sponsorship Order Form and you will not be entitled to a refund for such cancelled benefits.  We reserve the right to provide substitute benefits of comparable or greater value (as reasonably determined by us) if we cannot for any reason deliver any benefits under the Sponsorship Order Form.

1.2 Sponsorship Fees. You will pay each Sponsorship Fee invoice on the earlier of (a) the due date specified in such invoice, and (b) the date of the Sponsored Event (or the first Sponsored Event if the invoice captures multiple Sponsored Events). If you do not pay the Sponsorship Fee by its due date, you may (at our sole discretion) forfeit some or all of the benefits under the Sponsorship Order Form.

1.3 Your Conduct. You and your employees and agents will at all times comply with the AWS Code of Conduct.

1.4 Taxes. Each party will be responsible, as required under applicable law, for identifying and paying all taxes and other governmental fees and charges (and any penalties, interest, and other additions thereto) that are imposed on that party upon or with respect to the transactions and payments under the Sponsorship Order Form. All fees payable by Sponsor are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including, without limitation, VAT, excise taxes, sales and transaction taxes, and gross receipts taxes (“Indirect Taxes”). Sponsor will provide such information to AWS as is reasonably required for AWS to determine whether AWS is obligated to collect Indirect Taxes from Sponsor. AWS will not collect, and Sponsor will not pay, any Indirect Tax that Sponsor furnishes to AWS a properly completed exemption certificate or a direct payment permit certificate for which AWS may claim an available exemption from Indirect Tax. All payments made by Sponsor to AWS under the Sponsorship Order Form will be made free and clear of any withholding or deduction for taxes. If any such taxes (for example, international withholding taxes) are required to be withheld on any payment, Sponsor will pay such additional amounts as are necessary so that the net amount received by AWS is equal to the amount then due and payable under the Sponsorship Order Form. AWS will provide Sponsor with such tax forms as are reasonably requested in order to reduce or eliminate the amount of any withholding or deduction for taxes in respect of payments made under the Sponsorship Order Form.

2. Privacy and Data Protection.

We will handle your information in accordance with the AWS Privacy Notice.

3. Intellectual Property and Publicity.

3.1 Intellectual Property. You grant to AWS a worldwide, royalty-free, nontransferable, and nonexclusive license to (a) use the Logos to identify you as a sponsor of the Sponsored Event and to otherwise provide you with the benefits under the Sponsorship Order Form and (b) the Materials to provide you the benefits under the Sponsorship Order Form. If AWS provides AWS Event Materials to you under the Sponsorship Order Form, AWS grants to you a worldwide, royalty-free, nontransferable, and nonexclusive license to use, reproduce, display, perform, and distribute the AWS Event Materials provided that you: (x) do not modify the AWS Event Materials; (y) accurately represent your limited relationship to AWS as a sponsor of the Sponsored Event; and (z) do not use the AWS Event Materials or any AWS logos, trademarks, service marks, or trade dress displayed in the AWS Event Materials in a manner that is disparaging to AWS or our products or services, or in a manner that suggests AWS endorses, approves, or is otherwise affiliated with you. Except as specifically set forth in this Section 3.1, neither party will acquire any interest in the other party’s trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, logos, commercial symbols, copyrights, patents, and any other intellectual property rights under the Sponsorship Order Form.

3.2 Publicity. You will not issue any press release or make any other public announcement related to the Sponsored Events without our prior written approval.

4. Term and Termination.

Any Notice of termination of the Sponsorship Order Form must include a Termination Date.

4.2 Termination.

(a) Termination for Cause. Either party may terminate the Sponsorship Order Form for cause if the other party is in material breach of the Sponsorship Order Form and the material breach remains uncured for a period of 30 days from receipt of Notice by the breaching party.

(b) Termination for Convenience. We may terminate the Sponsorship Order Form at any time for any reason by providing you with Notice. You may terminate the Sponsorship Order Form prior to a Sponsored Event for any reason by providing us with Notice.

(c) Effect of Termination. Upon the Sponsorship Order Form’s Termination Date: (i) all of your rights under the Sponsorship Order Form immediately terminate; (ii) you remain responsible for paying the Sponsorship Fee, provided that (x) if we terminated the Sponsorship Order Form under Section 4.2(b), we will refund you the Sponsorship Fee associated with the Sponsored Events scheduled after the Termination Date, (y) if you terminated the Sponsorship Order Form under Section 4.2(b) 30 days or more before a Sponsored Event, we will refund you the Sponsorship Fee associated with such Sponsored Event, and (z) if you terminated the Sponsorship Order Form under Section 4.2(b) less than 30 days before a Sponsored Event, we will refund you half of the Sponsorship Fee associated with such Sponsored Event; and, (iii) Section 1.2, Section 1.4, Section 2, Section 3.2, Section 4.2(c), Section 5, Section 6, Section 7, Section 8, and Section 9 will continue to apply in accordance with their terms.

THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 6 APPLY ONLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

7. Miscellaneous.

7.2 Severability. If any portion of the Sponsorship Order Form is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions of the Sponsorship Order Form will remain in full force and effect. Any invalid or unenforceable portions will be interpreted to effect and intent of the original portion. If such construction is not possible, the invalid or unenforceable portion will be severed from the Sponsorship Order Form but the rest will remain in full force and effect.

7.3 Force Majeure. We and our affiliates will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under the Sponsorship Order Form where the delay or failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including acts of God, labor disputes or other industrial disturbances, electrical or power outages, utilities or other telecommunication failures, earthquake, storms, or other elements of nature, blockages, embargoes, riots, acts or orders of government, acts of terrorism, or war.

7.4 Assignment; No Third Party Beneficiaries; Independent Contractors. You will not assign or otherwise transfer the Sponsorship Order Form or any of your rights and obligations under the Sponsorship Order Form, without our prior written consent. Any assignment or transfer in violation of this Section 7.4 will be void. We may assign the Sponsorship Order Form without your consent (a) in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets, or (b) to any affiliate or as part of a corporate reorganization; and effective upon such assignment, the assignee is deemed substituted for AWS as a party to the Sponsorship Order Form, and AWS is fully released from all of its obligations and duties to perform under the Sponsorship Order Form. Subject to the foregoing, the Sponsorship Order Form will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective permitted successors and assigns. The Sponsorship Order Form does not create any third-party beneficiary rights in any individual or entity that is not a party to the Sponsorship Order Form.  We and you are independent contractors, and these Terms will not be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship.  Neither party, nor any of their respective affiliates, is an agent of the other for any purpose or has the authority to bind the other. 

7.5 Governing Law. Subject to Section 9, the laws of the State of Washington, without reference to conflict of law rules, govern the Sponsorship Order Form and any dispute of any sort that might arise between the parties. The United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the Sponsorship Order Form.

7.6 Dispute. SUBJECT TO SECTION 9, ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO YOUR SPONSORSHIP OF THE SPONSORED EVENT(S) WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, RATHER THAN IN COURT, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT AND FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW APPLY TO THE SPONSORSHIP ORDER FORM. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. HOWEVER, AN ARBITRATOR CAN AWARD ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF AS A COURT (INCLUDING INJUNCTIVE AND DECLARATORY RELIEF OR STATUTORY DAMAGES), AND MUST FOLLOW THE TERMS OF THE SPONSORSHIP ORDER FORM AS A COURT WOULD. TO BEGIN AN ARBITRATION PROCEEDING, YOU MUST SEND A LETTER REQUESTING ARBITRATION AND DESCRIBING YOUR CLAIM TO OUR REGISTERED AGENT CORPORATION SERVICE COMPANY, 300 DESCHUTES WAY SW, SUITE 304, TUMWATER, WA 98501. THE ARBITRATION WILL BE CONDUCTED BY THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION (AAA) UNDER ITS RULES, WHICH ARE AVAILABLE AT WWW.ADR.ORG OR BY CALLING 1-800-778-7879. PAYMENT OF FILING, ADMINISTRATION, AND ARBITRATOR FEES WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE AAA'S RULES. WE WILL REIMBURSE THOSE FEES FOR CLAIMS TOTALING LESS THAN $10,000 UNLESS THE ARBITRATOR DETERMINES THE CLAIMS ARE FRIVOLOUS. WE WILL NOT SEEK ATTORNEYS' FEES AND COSTS IN ARBITRATION UNLESS THE ARBITRATOR DETERMINES THE CLAIMS ARE FRIVOLOUS. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO HAVE THE ARBITRATION CONDUCTED BY TELEPHONE, BASED ON WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS, OR AT A MUTUALLY AGREED LOCATION. WE AND YOU AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. IF FOR ANY REASON A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN ARBITRATION WE AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. WE EACH AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING SUIT IN COURT TO ENJOIN INFRINGEMENT OR OTHER MISUSE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
