Liability Waiver and Release
As an attendee of the Shared Assessments Summit, I assume all risk and accept sole responsibility for any injury (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that attendee may experience or incur in connection with attending the Shared Assessments Summit. I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Shared Assessments, its employees, agents, owners, and representatives, of and from any such claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs, or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I further agree that the maximum liability of Shared Assessments arising out of your registration, participation, and attendance at the Shared Assessments Summit shall be the amount of your registration fees paid to Shared Assessments for the Shared Assessments Summit.
Specifically relating to the global COVID-19 pandemic, I acknowledge the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk of exposure or infection by attending the Shared Assessments Summit, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, disability, and/or death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Shared Assessments Summit may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of others who may attend the event or their families, colleagues, or others with whom they may have contact. Accordingly, I understand and agree that this release includes any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Shared Assessments, its employees, agents, owners, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in the Shared Assessments Summit.
In addition to all other rules and regulations relating to my attendance at the Shared Assessments Summit, I agree to comply with all COVID-related procedures that may be implemented by Shared Assessments, including, but not limited to, mask wearing and social distancing requirements and restrictions on certain activities that carry higher COVID-related risk, in order to protect as much as possible, the health and safety of all Shared Assessments Summit attendees and staff. These procedures may become more or less strict at any time between now and the event date, due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control.
I will not attend the Shared Assessments Summit in-person if I am exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (which can include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell), or if I have been exposed to a third party who has exhibited COVID-19 symptoms in the past five days. If I am refused entrance or am removed from the conference for not following these regulations, I will not receive a refund.
Service as an Invited Speaker
If you agree to speak at a Shared Assessments sponsored event, we may share your contact and biographical information and photograph with event attendees. In some circumstances, we may publish on the respective event website information 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. The purpose of this is to allow visitors to the event website, including event attendees and speakers, to contact you with questions and requests for more information, and to provide feedback if needed. Additionally, speakers may be asked to complete a release agreement or copyright form prior to their presentation.
Consent to Interview, Photograph, Record and Publish
By attending a Shared Assessments event or any portion thereof, attendees consent to the use of their respective voice, name, and/or likeness being used, without compensation, in any and all media, whether now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity. Attendees further release Shared Assessments, its owners, successors, assigns, and licensees from any related liability.
Shared Assessments may hire professional service providers (photo/video/streaming/audio) to document and display the event experience. Shared Assessments may also use social media (e.g., Twitter) to: (i) post real-time photos and videos to its social media feeds; and (ii) display select submissions from those feeds on monitors throughout the event venue. Attendees and sponsors are encouraged to capture their event experiences and post their own social content from the event (text, photos, audio, video, streaming), provided it does not infringe upon the rights of any attendee, sponsor, third party, or Shared Assessments. Such infringement would include, but is not limited to, defamation or infringement of intellectual property rights. In the event an attendee requires a release or permission to protect the rights of a third party, obtaining such a release or permission shall be the sole responsibility of the attendee.
By attending the event, you acknowledge and agree as follows: (a) Shared Assessments may edit and use footage it captures at the event for marketing and promotional activities and for any other lawful purpose in the ordinary course of its business; and (b) due to the prevalence of mobile recording devices in today’s world, Shared Assessments disclaims all liability for the capture of your image in any multimedia format by other attendees at the event.
Recordings of the proceedings of standards development meetings
The Shared Assessments Standards Association Standards Board applies restrictions on recording the proceedings of Shared Assessments standards development meetings. Restrictions include, but are not limited to, the usage of audio recording, video recording, and photography by participants or observers.
Shared Assessments reserves the right to change, amend, add or remove any of the above Terms & Conditions in its sole discretion and without prior notice. If one or more of the conditions outlined in these Terms & Conditions should become invalid, the remaining conditions will continue to be valid and apply. These Terms & Conditions apply to all event participants (attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors).
The views expressed by any event attendee, speaker, exhibitor, or sponsor are not necessarily those of Shared Assessments. All attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors are solely responsible for the content of all individual or corporation presentations, marketing collateral, and/or advertising.
If a court of competent jurisdiction should find any provision in this Agreement to be invalid or unenforceable, such holding shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement and the parties or the court will in good faith modify the invalid or unenforceable provision to the extent required to allow its enforcement in a manner that most closely represents the intentions of the parties in entering into this Agreement.
Virtual Exhibit Booths During Event
Shared Assessments event co-sponsors, exhibitors, and other third parties may directly request your personal information at their virtual exhibit booths or presentations. Providing your information to them is optional, and you should review their privacy policies should you have particular concerns about how they will treat your personal information.
If during the event you attend a virtual session or program hosted by an exhibitor other than Shared Assessments, you understand and agree that when you provide personal data, that information will go to a non-Shared Assessments entity and Shared Assessments takes no responsibility for how that company uses your personal information.
