Acknowledgement of Covid-19 and Other Risks
You fully understand that:
- the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and any resulting disease (together with any variation thereof, “COVID-19”) is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death, and there is an inherent danger and risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any place where people are present;
- no Safety Protocols (as defined below) can eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19;
- while people of all ages and health conditions can be and have been adversely affected by COVID-19, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities (i) people with certain underlying medical conditions are or may be especially vulnerable; and (ii) the risk of severe illness from the contraction of COVID-19 increases steadily with age, and contracting COVID-19 can result in the further transmission of COVID-19 to Attendees’s spouse, family members, and other persons in proximity to Attendee; and
- exposure to COVID-19 can result in subsequent quarantine, illness, disability, other short-term and long-term physical and/or mental health effects, and/or death, regardless of age or health condition at the time of exposure and/or infection.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that in the absence of any negligence or other breach of duty by League, your entry to the Event venue and attendance at the Event is entirely at your own risk.
Due to the uncertainty related to COVID-19, Attendee admission to the Event venue and attendance at the Event is subject to any health and safety policies, assessments, precautions and/or protocols put in place by local, state and federal governmental agencies, by the Event venue owner or operator, and/or by League or third parties, including requirements relating to face masks and/or enhanced health screenings, which may include a requirement that Attendees, and any person in an Attendee’s party, be tested for COVID-19 prior to or during the Event and/or provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (“Safety Protocols”). You acknowledge and agree to comply with the Safety Protocols. Failure to comply with Safety Protocols will automatically terminate any rights that Attendees may have hereunder, and will authorize the Event venue owner/operator and/or League (or their respective personnel) to refuse any Attendee admission to the Event venue, or to eject an Attendee from the Event venue and Event, without refund in each case. You acknowledge that the Safety Protocols are not diagnostic and do not eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
Liability Waiver and Release
In consideration of being allowed to register for and participate in the Event, you hereby (i) warrant and represent that you are age 18 or above and (ii) freely waive, release from liability, assume all risks, and covenant not to sue League, or its members, employees, directors, officers, board members, agents, or volunteers, for any expense, loss, damage, personal injury, including loss of life, illness, including, but not limited to COVID-19, disability, property damage, or property theft or actions of any kind that you may hereafter suffer or sustain before, during, or after the event.
The foregoing waiver and release will apply to all loss, damage, personal injury, including loss of life, illness, disability, property damage or property theft or actions of any kind that you might suffer except where caused by the sole, gross negligence of League.
Trade Compliance and Ethics
You represent and warrant that you and your financial institution(s) that provide funds used to pay Event fees are not subject to sanctions or otherwise designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties, or owned or controlled by such a party, including but not limited to the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council, the U.S. government (e.g., the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Specially Designated Nationals list and Foreign Sanctions Evaders list and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Entity List), the European Union or its member states, or other applicable government authority.
You certify that you have confirmed with an appropriate ethics official that there are no federal, state, local, or institutional ethics or procurement laws, regulations, or rules that restrict or prohibit your attendance at the Event or which would otherwise create or place League into a conflict of interest.
If you have been asked and have agreed to speak at the Event, League may share your contact and biographical information with other event attendees. Sometimes we may also request a photograph of you to distribute along with your other information. In some cases, we post information about you on the Event website such as your name, employer, physical work address, work email address, as well as a link to your company website and/or professional LinkedIn page available to the public. This is so that visitors to the Event website can contact you with questions and requests for more information, and to provide feedback if needed.
If you would prefer that we not share any of your information publicly on the Event website, please let us know and we will accommodate your request. You have the right to dictate how your information will be used and shared.
Invited speakers may also be asked to complete a copyright release or other form of agreement prior to their presentation. This is so that we will be able to record and circulate copies of your presentation to other Event attendees.
Usage of photographic and video material
In order to comply with global data privacy laws, League imposes certain restrictions on the use of multimedia (e.g. photography, video, audio, online streaming, etc.) at the Event. Attendees are permitted to use hand-held cameras and/or smart phones to take photographs and capture digital images for personal, non-commercial use only. Photographs taken at the Event may not be published, sold, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or otherwise commercially exploited in any manner whatsoever.
League may also hire professional photographers or videographers to record or take images of the Event, including recordings or images of Event attendees. At our discretion, League may also post real-time photos and videos to its various social media feeds and/or display select submissions from those feeds on monitors set up at the Event venue. Event attendees are permitted to post their own social media content from the Event, including text, photos, audio, and video streaming, provided such content does not infringe upon the rights of League, or any other Event attendee or sponsor, or third party. Such infringement would include, but is not limited to, defamation, invasion of privacy or publicity rights, or infringement of intellectual property rights. Obtaining third party releases for the use of another’s image or likeness is the sole responsibility of Event attendees and not of League.
By attending the Event, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) League may edit and use footage it captures of you at the Event for marketing and promotional activities and for any other lawful purpose, and (ii) while League will make every effort to enforce its policy relating to the use of photographic and video material taken at the Event, we cannot guarantee that your image will not be captured in one multimedia format or another by other Event attendees and will not be liable for any such occurrence.
League reserves the right to change, amend, add or remove any of these Terms & Conditions in its sole discretion and without prior notice to you. If one or more of these Terms & Conditions should be or become invalid, the remainder will continue to be valid and apply to the maximum extent permissible. These Terms & Conditions apply to all Event participants including all attendees, speakers, sponsors, or exhibitors.
We and our affiliates will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligation under these Terms & Conditions where the delay or failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control (“Force Majeure event”), such as 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.
You may not assign or otherwise transfer these Terms & Conditions or any of your rights and obligations thereunder without our prior written consent. Any assignment or transfer in violation of this section will be void. We may assign these Terms & Conditions without your consent for any reason.
The views expressed by any Event attendee, speaker, exhibitor, or sponsor are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of League. All Event attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors are solely responsible for the content of all presentations, marketing collateral, and advertising that is displayed or distributed at the Event.
