1.2 Use of Likeness. By attending the SciPEP Conference, you acknowledge and agree to grant SciPEP Conference and its co-hosts the right to record, film, live stream, photograph, or capture your likeness in any media now available or hereafter developed and to distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise globally to disseminate, in perpetuity, such media without any further approval from you or any payment to you.

3. Quality Assurance

3.1 Speaker and Program Changes. The SciPEP Conference strives to provide you with the most productive and effective educational experience possible. As speakers are confirmed months before the SciPEP Conference, some speaker or topic changes may occur. The SciPEP Conference nor its co-hosts are responsible for these changes.

3.2 Conference Execution. If the SciPEP Conference or its co-hosts are prevented from carrying out obligations as they pertain to the conference as a result of any cause beyond their control such as a software or hosting platform issue or due to a “Force Majeure Event” such as, but not limited to, natural disaster, pandemic, or any other comparable calamity, casualty or condition the co-hosts shall have the right to immediately terminate the entire or affected portion of the conference without liability and shall be relieved of its obligations to registrants. If termination is due to a Force Majeure Event, the SciPEP Conference co-hosts will schedule a future date and your registration will be applied to the rescheduled conference.


4. Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability

The SciPEP Conference nor its co-hosts give no warranties in respect of any aspect of the conference or any materials related thereto or offered at the conference and, to the fullest extent possible under the laws governing these Terms and Conditions, disclaims all implied warranties, including but not limited to warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, timeliness, and merchantability.

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of the State of California.


6. General

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms and Conditions shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
