These Terms of Service are effective as of January 10th, 2015.
Prior to using sli.do on www.sli.do and/or other domains and services ran by sli.do, s.r.o. (the “sli.do services”) you are instructed to read the following terms and conditions.
These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) are a legal agreement between you and the company sli.do s. r. o., having it registered office at Heyrovskeho 10, 841 03 Bratislava, Slovakia, ID No. 47 333 421, registered with the Commercial Register kept by the District Court Bratislava I, section: Sro, entry no.: 91022/B, telephone number: e-mail: info(at)sli.do, (the “Provider”), which operates the sli.do services. Please read the Terms carefully before using the sli.do services. Do not use the sli.do services if you do not accept the Terms. If you are an attendee, your entering of a unique #code indicates your acceptance and agreement to be bound by the Terms. If you are an organiser, you indicate your acceptance and agreement to be bound by the Terms by ticking off the appropriate box shown before signing up for the sli.do services. Accordingly, the agreement between the Provider and an attendee arises at the moment the attendee enters a unique #code (the “Attendee Agreement”), and the agreement between the Provider and an organiser arises at the moment the organiser sings up for the sli.do services after ticking off the appropriate box indicating acceptance of the Terms (the “Organiser Agreement”). Both the Attendee Agreement and the Organiser Agreement are concluded for an indefinite period of time.
The Provider is entitled to modify the Terms, e.g. to reflect changes in laws or regulatory requirements. Any use of the sli.do services after publishing the modifications to the Terms constitutes your acceptance of those modifications; if you do not agree with the changes made in the Terms, you may terminate the Organiser Agreement and/or the Attendee Agreement with a one-month notice period (the notice period commences on the first calendar day of the month following the calendar month in which the notice of termination was delivered to the Provider); during the notice period the amended parts of the Terms will not apply. Please note that attendees are entitled to make use of the sli.do services free of charge. Thus all terms stipulated herein regarding billing and fees are not applicable to attendees; the same applies also in cases where - considering the context of the Terms - it is clear that a term is meant to be binding only an organiser and not an attendee.
- Basic Terms
You are responsible for the security of your account.
You undertake to comply with all applicable legal rules and regulations, mainly, but not exclusively, you confirm that all the information you input to sli.do site is legal.
You may not use our sites for any illegal or unauthorised purpose. International users agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct, acceptable content and other mandatorily applicable legal regulations.
You are solely responsible for your conduct and any personal information and other data you display on our sites.
The sli.do services may be used on electronic devices with an operating system and access to the Internet.
- Prohibited activities
You shall not access or use, or attempt to access or use, the sli.do services to take any action that harm the Provider or any other person or entity, interfere with the operation of the sli.do services, or use the sli.do services in a manner that could violate any laws.
You must not modify, adapt or hack our sites or modify another website so it falsely implies that it is associated with our sites.
While using the sli.do services you undertake not to submit any information or other content that would:
- infringe the copyright, trademark, patent, or other intellectual property right of any person;
- be false, misleading, libellous, slanderous, abusive, obscene, hateful, threatening, harassing, or sexually-explicit;
- infringe any person’s right to private or publicity;
- contain advertising or a solicitation of any kind;
- impersonate any other person or entity;
- degrade others on the basis of gender, national origin, race, class, ethnicity, religion, orientation or identity, disability;
- contain material intended to intimidate or to incite violence;
- upload or otherwise transmit any communication, software, or material that contains a virus or is otherwise harmful to the Provider or the Provider’s costumers.
You must not violate any laws in your jurisdiction while using the sli.do services.
A breach of any of the above mentioned obligations is considered a fundamental breach of contract and the Provider will be entitled to unilaterally terminate the provision of its services with immediate effect and cancel and erase all the information and accounts of the person committing such a breach.
While our services prohibit such conduct and content on our sites, you understand that the Provider cannot be responsible for the content posted on our sites and you, nonetheless, may be exposed to such materials and that you use our sites and services at your own risk.
- Event types
The sli.do services are provided to organisers through creation of an account (the “Organiser Services”) and (except for the “BASIC” event type) payment of a event fee (the “Event Fee”). Through such an account an organiser gains access to the Organiser Services for an indefinite term. The organisers undertake not to assist anyone else in accessing the Organiser Services on an unauthorised basis, including by sharing, publicly offering, selling, or offering to sell their access credentials to third parties or otherwise in breach of these Terms. The organisers confirm that they are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their access credentials and if they know or suspect that anyone other than their selves knows their access credentials, they shall promptly notify the Provider.
If you use the “BASIC” version of the sli.do services, all data collected are considered public and can be displayed on our site and freely shared with other parties.
If you set your event as a private one, we do not reveal data from your event to any third party. However, aggregate data from your event can still be used for our overall statistics.
- Billing and payment
The Organisers agree to pay the Event Fees unless otherwise provided in the Terms. The current amounts of the Event Fees are available at: http://www.sli.do/pricing; the Organiser’s agreement ends by deleting their accounts.
The Provider reserves the right to change the amount of Event Fees in accordance with the Terms.
The Event Fees need to be paid prior to the event. There are currently four types of Event Fees: (i.) “BASIC”, (ii.) “ENJOY”, (iii.) “PRO”, (iv.) “PREMIUM”. Before the event starts, the Organiser has to sign up and choose one of the event types.
The Organiser is obliged to send the Provider without undue delay after choosing event type (n/a for “BASIC” event) all information and contact details statutorily required for billing purposes (e.g. trade name, registered office, ID No., VAT No.).
Save for the cases where the free (“BASIC”) version is used, the Provider sends an invoice for the selected Event Type to the Organiser after the Event activation, i.e. effecting payment for the selected Event Type or requesting the activation of services by other means. The invoices are sent to the Organiser solely by e-mail. If the invoice hasn’t been paid during the Event Type activation, the invoices become due for payment 15 days from the date of invoice. If the Organiser fails to make a payment of the invoice when due, the Provider is entitled to suspend the provision of the sli.do paid services (“ENJOY”, “PRO”, “PREMIUM”) to Organiser until the time all money owed by the Organiser to the Provider is fully paid. Once the Event Fee is fully paid, the Organiser may resume using the sli.do paid services (“ENJOY”, “PRO”, “PREMIUM”).
Sli.do uses Braintree, a division of PayPal, Inc. (Braintree) for payment processing services. By using the Braintree payment processing services you agree to the Braintree Payment Services Agreement available at https://www.braintreepayments.com/legal/gateway-agreement, and the applicable bank agreement available at https://www.braintreepayments.com/legal/cea-wells.
Thus, sli.do does not store any credit card or payment information.
The sli.do services become available to the Organiser immediately after signing up for them.
- Information provided by attendees
We are not responsible for the content posted in connection with using the sli.do services; the public can ask questions or create polls in accordance with the Terms. Our service will allow the Organiser to deactivate users’ accounts. The sites, however, will not necessarily respond to the request for the total removal of all user information.
We are not responsible for the accuracy of question votes and poll results. Sli.do is engagement tool and we cannot guarantee that results are not hacked or changed in some way by attendees. However, we do our best to make it as accurate as possible. We reserve the right to alter the poll results if there is a suspicion of being hacked or attacked by the third party.
We cannot guarantee that service is bug-free. We try our best to make it great and as simple as possible.
- Copyright, trade names, logos
The users (organisers as well as attendees) of the sli.do services give hereby the Provider a license to use the information collected on the sli.do sites (questions, feedback, results) (the “License“) for the whole duration of the copyright protection and for use in all manners known at the moment; the License is granted as a non-exclusive, transferrable license to use the information which constitutes a copyright protected work. The License is granted without any territorial restrictions, free of charge and the Provider is entitled to grant sub-licenses even without the prior approval of the user of the sli.do services. The users of the sli.do services, however, have the right to deactivate input information from their account. After the deactivation, the Provider may still use such data.
We undertake to obey all applicable copyright laws. We will review all claims of copyright infringement received and remove content deemed to have been posted or distributed in violation of any such laws. To make a claim, please provide us with following:
- a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or the person authorised to act on its behalf;

- a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and under the pains and penalties of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
If you are our customer or you used our service, we can use trade name and logo of your company on our website. If you send us your feedback after your event, you also agree that we can use your name and company on our testimonial site. For this purpose the Organiser hereby grants the license to the Provider, free of charge; such a license is a non-exclusive, territorially unrestricted, transferable license enabling the Provider to use the logo and the trade name for the given purpose.
- Disclaimer of warranties
The using of the sli.do services is entirely at the users’ risk. Unless otherwise provided in the Terms, the Provider makes no representations or warranties about the services, including, without limitation, the operation of the sli.do services or the information, materials, goods, or services appearing or offered on the sli.do services or with respect to any websites or services linked from the sli.do services. Moreover, there is no warranty that the sli.do services will meet your needs or requirements or the needs or requirements of any other person or the needs or requirements set forth in any documentation.

For the purposes of the Terms all communication between the Provider and an organiser or an attendee shall be conducted by e-mail. Any message shall be deemed to be duly delivered at the moment it is transmitted to the e-mail account of the other party. The users of the sli.do services are advised to check their e-mail accounts on a regular basis. Support services may be provided by the Provider even by a telephone or other means of communication.
- Consumer rights
If the Organiser is a natural person, who is acting for purposes which are outside his/her trade, business, craft of profession (the “Organiser - Consumer“), such Organiser is entitled to rights guaranteed by the applicable legislation. In addition to other rights mentioned in the Terms, the Organiser – Consumer shall have a period of 14 days to withdraw from the Organiser Agreement, without giving any reason, and without incurring any cost. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the Organiser – Consumer must inform the Provider of his/her decision to withdraw from the Organiser Agreement by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by e-mail). To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for the Organiser – Consumer to send the Provider his/her communication concerning the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired. If the Organiser – Consumer withdraws from the Organiser Agreement, the Provider shall reimburse to him/her all payments received from him/her, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from which the Provider is informed about the decision to withdraw from the Organiser Agreement.
The Organiser – Consumer is entitled to statutory rights of a legal guarantee of conformity of services.
- Entire agreement
The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and the Provider, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and the Provider. In the event any provision of the Terms is declared unenforceable, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and shall be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision.
You may not assign the Terms or any rights or obligations mentioned herein without the prior written consent of the Provider. The Provider has the right to assign the Terms, and any of its rights or obligations mentioned herein.
The Organiser Agreement and/or the Attendee Agreement may be terminated by each of the parties with a one-month notice period (the notice period commences on the first calendar day of the month following the calendar month in which the notice of termination was delivered to the other party).
- Governing law and jurisdiction
The Terms are governed by, and must be construed in accordance with, the law of the Slovak Republic, as applicable, without giving effect to its rules of conflicts of law.
Any claims arising under the Terms shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Slovak Republic.
