We reserve their right to take such action (legal or otherwise), including a claim for damages as we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate in the circumstances.

Warranties

To the extent permitted by the applicable law, we disclaim all warranties or conditions, either express or implied, or any part of them in respect of any aspect of a Summit or any related materials. You acknowledge and agree that in accepting these Terms you have not relied on any representation or warranty that is not expressly included in these Terms and you agree that you shall have no remedy in respect of any misrepresentation which has not become a part of these Terms.

Limitation of Liability

You acknowledge and agree that views expressed by speakers at or in connection with a Summit are their own and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any advice given or views expressed during or in connection with a Summit.

Materials shared or distributed at or in connection with a Summit are intended for information purposes only and should not be relied upon by you or others. We and our related companies do not provide any guarantees, conditions or warranties that the materials are complete or accurate and do not accept any responsibility or liability for reliance by you or any person on any aspect of the Summit and/or any information provided at the Summit.

subject to paragraph (a), our total aggregate liability in contract, tort (including negligence), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the Terms is limited to the total amount paid by you to us for your ticket to attend the Summit, after the payment of any processing fees or bank charges applicable.

Nothing in these Terms purports to exclude or limit liability for any fraudulent statement or act or in respect of any liability that cannot excluded or limited under applicable law.

Indemnity

Force majeure

We are not liable if a Summit is, in whole or in part, cancelled, rescheduled or postponed, or for any failure or delay to perform our obligations under these Terms, if such event results from anything beyond our reasonable control (for example, natural disasters, flood, fire, acts of terror, war, labour strike, extreme weather malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, or mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation, or any other emergency) or anything else that renders performance of a Summit, in whole or in part, impracticable, illegal or impossible.

Governing law and jurisdiction

This interpretation, formation and operation of the Terms and all non-contractual obligations arising from or connected with them shall be governed by and construed in accordance with, and all disputes between the parties arising out of or in any way relating to the Terms or any disputes between the parties in any way connected with the subject matter of these Terms (whether contractual or non-contractual) shall be governed by, the laws of Ireland.

Each of the parties submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Canadian Courts.

Nothing contained in the Terms shall limit our right to bring enforcement proceedings in another jurisdiction or to seek interim, protective or provisional relief in the courts of another jurisdiction.

Some final terms

These Terms (including our privacy policy) contain the entire agreement and understanding between us in respect of all matters which are referred to herein and supersede any prior, written or oral agreement between us relating to such matters. You confirm that in agreeing to accept these Terms you have not relied on any representation that is not expressly included herein and you agree that you shall have no remedy in respect of any misrepresentation which has not become a part of these Terms. However, nothing in these Terms purports to exclude liability for any fraudulent statement or act.

If a court with jurisdiction over these Terms finds that any part of these Terms is wholly or partly unenforceable, you and us agree that where possible, the court should modify the terms to make that part enforceable while still achieving its intent. If the court cannot do that, you and us agree that the court should not have regard to that unenforceable part but still enforce the rest of these Terms.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms or we do not act or delay in acting to in exercise a right or remedy provided by these Terms that does not mean we have waived our rights or remedies against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with your obligations.

These Terms are personal to you. You agree not to assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without receiving our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer these Terms without your consent by providing you with notice.

You and us agree that no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind us in any respect.

You agree that the only way you can provide us with a legal notice is at the address(s) set out in Part A above.

To the extent allowed by law, the English language version of the Terms is binding and any translations are for convenience only.

In these Terms:

a reference to the Terms includes all its parts described in Part A, and includes any amendment to or replacement of them;

headings are for reference purposes only and do not form part of the Terms;

a reference to a statute, code or other law includes regulations and other instruments under it and consolidations, amendments, re-enactments or replacements of any of them;

the singular includes the plural, and vice versa; and

“includes”, “including”, “for example”, “such as” and similar terms are not words of limitation.

If you are a consumer, nothing in these Terms excludes any of your applicable consumer or other statutory legal rights that cannot be waived.

If an individual purchases a general Attendee ticket before purchasing a start-up ticket we reserve the right to grant a full, partial, or no refund at our sole discretion.

Part C – Attendee terms

Tickets and pricing

You will find details of attendee ticket pricing and fees for a Summit here. Ticket prices for a Summit are correct at the time of publication.

We reserve the right to change the ticket prices at any time but any changes will not affect tickets that have already been purchased.

A valid ticket entitles you to entry to the relevant Summit as an Attendee, but does not include any requirements associated with travel to or from the Summit or any accommodation costs incurred and we shall have no liability for such costs or expenses.

In certain cases, free or subsidised tickets may be offered within 30 days of the Summit start date. In these instances, tickets must be assigned within 7 days of receipt of your ticket in accordance with the details provided in the above paragraph.

Delivery

Once a successful ticket transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic soft-copy via email to the email address nominated by the Attendee. For some ticket types it may be necessary to complete required information such as Attendee name or tax identification number before the tickets can be issued.

The ticket acts as a receipt for the transaction and can be used to gain entry to the Summit listed on the ticket.

All tickets must be assigned to an Attendee, and all Attendee details must be complete within 30 days of receipt of your ticket. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes name, job title, company name and a passport style photo. Ticket reassignment after this date is subject to the Terms.

Discounts

We may from time to time offer certain discounted ticket promotions to encourage attendance at a Summit. We are not obligated to offer any discounts for a particular Summit and reserve the right to chance or withdraw a discount offer at any time in our sole discretion.

Ticket name changes

If an Attendee finds that they cannot attend a Summit they must notify us as soon as possible (and in any event no later than 7 days before the commencement of the Summit) by email at: registration@convergx-co.wpdev.guideloom.com and request a name change on their ticket. We may in our absolute discretion allow the name change.

Refund and cancellation

Your ticket remains our property and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission to a Summit may be refused at any time upon a refund of the printed registration price.

If you are eligible under applicable law to avail of a right to cancel your purchase of a ticket within 14 days without giving any reason and to receive a reimbursement of payments, you need to notify us in writing of your decision to cancel your Summits ticket within 14 days of the day the contract for distance selling was concluded. The refund will be made in the same form as the original payment was received (for example, a credit card payment will refund to same credit card account number).

All purchases of Summit tickets are non-refundable in their entirety after the end of this 14 day ‘cooling off’ period. You acknowledge that all refunds are subject to deduction of a €10 or $10 transaction fee or as otherwise advised (depending on the currency of your original transaction).

Our free and subsidised ticket promotions sometimes include a processing fee. This processing fee is non-refundable in its entirety.

No reselling

The tickets you purchase are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be resold under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition.

Reselling or otherwise transferring your ticket, not in accordance with the Terms, will void the ticket and the ticket holder will not gain entry into the Summit. Where there has been any resale or attempted resale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), we reserve the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect.

We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket re-selling or ticket broker.

Part D – Volunteer terms

Selection

You may apply to be a Volunteer at a Summit.

There is no guarantee that applicants wishing to volunteer at the Summit will be selected and selection of Volunteers is at our sole discretion.

Selected Volunteers must attest to the truth of all statements made in their volunteer application.

Without limiting their other obligations under these Terms, Volunteers are subject to the following rules governing their relationship with us:

  • Volunteers will not receive compensation for travel or accommodation associated with the Summit;
  • Volunteers who violate any of these Terms, behave in a manner that could be disruptive to the Summit or any other Attendee, Volunteer, Exhibitor and/ or partner, consume alcohol and/or illegal substances before or while on duty, or fail to show up for an assigned shift may be stripped of their credentials, denied access to the Summit, and may be subject to removal from the Summit grounds;
  • Volunteers acknowledge they may be photographed or recorded in accordance with the section “Photography, Audio and Video Recording”; and
  • Volunteers who may be handling confidential information agree to handle such information in the strictest confidence and abide by the rules governing its use as provided for in the [Privacy Policy].

Ticket refund

If you have been selected to be a Volunteer at a Summit but have already bought a ticket, you are not eligible for a refund or reimbursement under any circumstances.
