Crossbeam Terms for Events
These Terms for Events (“Terms”) apply to any attendance of, or participation in, any event hosted or organized by Crossbeam, including in-person events (such as Supernode, Connector Summit and other conferences) and online events and webinars (each, an “Event”).
You may not, and you must not, attend or participate in any Event unless you have accepted the Terms.
1. Rules of Conduct; Remedial Actions
In connection with each Event you must comply with the Crossbeam Event Code of Conduct, as updated by Crossbeam from time to time, currently located here (the “Event Code of Conduct”).
Without limiting any other remedy under the Terms or applicable law, if you fail to comply with these Terms or any other Terms between you and Crossbeam or any Crossbeam affiliate, Crossbeam may take any action it deems appropriate in response, including cancelling your Event registration without any refund or banning you from the applicable Event or any or all other Events. Please report any non-compliance with these Terms in accordance with the Event Code of Conduct.
Event fees and other charges may apply to your attendance of or participation in any Event, or may otherwise be incurred by you in connection with an Event. If payment of any fees or charges is required, you may be asked to supply certain relevant information, such as your credit card number and its expiration date, your billing address and your shipping information. You represent and warrant that you have the right to use any credit card for which you provide any credit card information in connection with a payment transaction. By submitting such information, you grant to Crossbeam the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating payment transactions. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any payment transaction. You will pay all fees and charges incurred by you or on your behalf in connection with an Event, at the prices in effect and disclosed to you when such fees or charges are incurred. In addition, you are responsible for any taxes applicable to your payment transactions.
Crossbeam reserves the right, including without prior notice, to cancel, terminate or impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, discount or similar promotion. Any refunds for Crossbeam’s cancellation of an Event will be subject to Crossbeam’s applicable refund policies. Payments made for one Event may not be applied toward the purchase of any other Event, product or services. While it is Crossbeam’s practice to confirm Event-related payment transactions by e-mail, the receipt of an e-mail confirmation does not constitute acceptance of an order or confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service.
Badges may contain RFID or NFC tags or other technology that may be used to record your attendance and participation in the Event (including visiting booths and attending sessions). By allowing your badge to be scanned at an Event, or by scanning your badge at an Event, you hereby authorize the operator of the badge scanner or similar technology for virtual events to collect and process such information.
If you do not wish to permit the uses and disclosures of information described in this Section, do not scan your badge or allow any Event Sponsor or third party to scan your badge at any Event.
For an in-person Event, an Event badge may be available for you to pick up at the designated check-in area of the Event venue during the scheduled Event dates. You must show a government-issued picture identification to pick up your Event badge. You will not be admitted into the Event venue without an Event badge.
4. Government Employees and Officials
If you are a government employee or official, you must identify yourself as such during the registration process for an Event, and, for an in-person Event, you may be asked to present your government-issued employee badge during the check-in process.
If you are a government employee or official and you are offered free or discounted attendance or participation at an Event, you must disclose your attendance at the Event to your employing government agency in advance, and obtain such agency’s permission for you to accept free or discounted attendance at such Event. You must also confirm your compliance with the foregoing upon request by Crossbeam.
If you are a government employee or official, you must also comply, for the entire duration of the Event, with all applicable rules and regulations imposed by your employing agency, including those rules and regulations relating to the acceptance and disclosure of gifts and gratuities.
Crossbeam reserves the right, including without prior notice, to take any security measures it deems appropriate for the safety of attendees and participants of in-person Events. You will comply with all such security measures, including the following:
- At all times during an in-person Event (including at any Event venue or during any Event session, keynote or other activity), you will wear your Event badge such that it is visible to other Event attendees and participants. You will not share or exchange your Event badge with any other person. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in confiscation of your Event badge and termination of your attendance or participation in the Event.
- Bags may be checked randomly during certain hours of an in-person Event.
- You will not leave any bags or other property unattended at any time. Unattended property may be removed.
- Except as specifically pre-approved by Crossbeam in writing, no persons under 18 years of age will be permitted to attend any Event or portion thereof (including any session, breakout, keynote or other activity), or otherwise be present at any Event venue, including in the expo hall.
- Items prohibited at in-person Events include: firearms and other weapons, explosives, and other hazardous materials or articles. You will not bring with you or have in your possession any such items at any time during your attendance at an in-person Event.
6. Affiliated Services
In hosting the Event, Crossbeam may make available information on accommodation, transportation, and other services provided by third parties (each, an “Affiliated Service”). For clarity, Affiliated Services are Third Party Materials. For further clarity, hotel reservations are provided as an Affiliated Service, and Crossbeam is not responsible for any issues or disputes between you and any hotel. You will be responsible for complying with the hotel’s cancellation policy, including if an Event is cancelled for any reason.
7. Personal Release
Crossbeam (and/or others on behalf of Crossbeam) may be photographing, recording (both audio and video), webcasting, podcasting or otherwise transmitting during any or all of an Event (including at the Event venue during an Event session, breakout, keynote or other activity). Your image, likeness, voice, statements and other identifying characteristics (each, an “Image”) may be captured in photographs, recordings (both audio and video), webcasts, podcasts, or other transmissions of the Event (each, a “Recording”).
You hereby grant to Crossbeam a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable and fully sublicensable (through multiple tiers) license, without additional consideration to you or any third party, to reproduce, distribute, perform and display (publicly or otherwise, create derivative works of, adapt, modify and otherwise use, analyze and exploit Recordings (including your Images therein), in whole or in part, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed, and for any purpose (including for promotional purposes, such as testimonials).
Crossbeam exclusively owns all right, title and interest (including intellectual property rights) in and to the Recordings, all modifications and derivatives of Recordings, and all proceeds derived therefrom. Crossbeam has no obligation to share any such proceeds with you.
You hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to inspect or approve the use or other exploitation of any Recording or any reproductions thereof, and you agree that Crossbeam has no obligation to use any Recording (including any of your Images) or otherwise exercise any of the rights granted to Crossbeam with respect to your Images.
Your Images may appear in Recordings made available to the public, and third parties may retain, use or distribute such Recordings. Once made available to the public, Crossbeam has no control over, and is not responsible for, any use or misuse (including any distribution) by any third party of Recordings.
In connection with the use or other exploitation of Recordings (including your Images), you hereby irrevocably waive and release any and all claims with respect to intellectual property, rights of publicity, rights of privacy, and any other claims or damages with respect to such use or other exploitation. You affirm that you are of legal age and have read the foregoing release and fully understand its contents.
8. Assumption of Risk
Your attendance of or participation in an Event or any related activities is completely voluntary. Crossbeam does not guarantee admittance to all or any part of any Event (including any session, breakout, keynote or other activity). Unless specified otherwise by Crossbeam, all event sessions, breakouts, keynotes or other activities, if applicable, are seated on a first-come, first-served basis. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, you accept and assume all risks of any and all personal injury or damage to your personal property that you may face while attending an Event, and hereby waive any claims you may have against Crossbeam, its Affiliates, Event sponsor or Event vendors relating to such risks.
Crossbeam reserves the right, including without prior notice, to limit the number of Event attendees and participants, to cancel or terminate any Event registration, to bar any person from attending all or any part of any Event, and to refuse to provide any person with access to Event materials.
9. Changes to Events
Events are subject to change at any time. Crossbeam does not guarantee the attendance of any third party (including any exhibitor or speaker), or that any scheduled session, breakout, keynote or other activity will take place.
Crossbeam reserves the right, including without prior notice, to make any change to an Event program at any time for any reason (including modification of the schedule or content of, or cancellation of, any session, breakout, keynote or other activity). Crossbeam is not responsible for, and no reimbursement will be issued in the event of, any change to an Event (including modification of the overall Event program, or the schedule or content of, or cancellation of, any session, keynote or other activity).
10. Limitation of Liability
The maximum aggregate liability of Crossbeam, together with all Crossbeam Affiliated Parties, for all damages, losses and causes of action in connection with these Terms or an Event, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, will be the Event registration fees, if any, paid by you to and received by Crossbeam for the Event giving rise to the liability.
From time to time third parties may present at Events. Crossbeam is not responsible for, and does not endorse content, views, opinions or other expressions made by third parties at Events. Accordingly, we may not be held liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused to you in connection with any third party content at any Event.
Sections 1, 3 (with respect to fees and other charges incurred by you prior to the expiration or termination of the Terms), 6–11 of these Terms will survive termination of the Terms.
