Last Modified: May 25 2018
Thank you for your interest in Pigeonhole Live. The Pigeonhole Live website and service (Pigeonhole Live“) are provided by PigeonLab Pte. Ltd. (”PigeonLab“, ”we“, ”us“ or ”our“). These terms of service (these ”Terms of Service“) govern your (”you“, ”your“, or a ”user“) access to and use of the https://pigeonholelive.com and https://pigeonhole.at web site and its subdomains (the ”Public Site“) including the Pigeonhole Live real-time audience engagement platform and the Pigeonhole Live Dashboard account (collectively the ”Pigeonhole Live Platform“; the Pigeonhole Live Platform and the Public Site shall collectively be known as the ”Website“) and all services provided by Pigeonhole Live via the Website (collectively, the ”Services“). For clarification, the domain https://pigeonhole.at shall be the primary option for Audience Members, Moderators and Admin Users (as defined below) to access Pigeonhole Live service, while the domain https://pigeonholelive.com shall be the primary option for Organisers to access Pigeonhole Live.
The Pigeonhole Live Platform can be used for several different types of events including, but not limited to industry conferences, town halls, workshops, corporate events, political campaign events, classrooms, national television and other events (each such event, an ”Event“. The use of the Pigeonhole Live Platform as part of a session for each such Event refers to a ”Session“). The Pigeonhole Live Platform is provided by PigeonLab, and includes a real-time audience engagement tool that enables event organisers (”Organisers“ and each, an ”Organiser“) to collect questions, comments, votes and other similar information (”Responses“) in real time from event attendees or audience members of a Session (”Audience Members“ and each, an ”Audience Member“). Moderators or speakers of each such Event selected by Organisers (”Moderators“ and each a ”Moderator“) will facilitate the panel discussions between the Audience Members and answer questions from the Audience Members. (Moderators and Audience Members shall collectively be known as ”Participants“ and each, a ”Participant“). In order to participate in a Session, an Audience Member must have a computer that can access our Website, or, when available, a mobile device enabled with our Mobile App. Participants may be required to enter a passcode (”Passcode“) generated on Pigeonhole Live by the Organiser and provided to Participants by the Organiser and/or an attendee code (”Attendee Code“). Participants may then submit, post, or vote on questions, comments, or polls in real time during a Session as configured and enabled by the Organiser.
