Noggin User Conferences: Registration Terms

Introduction

Thank you for registering for the Noggin User Conference (“Conference”). Regardless of whether your registration is submitted by you or your proxy, the following Conferences Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) apply to you and your participation in the Noggin User Conference. By participating in this Conference, you agree to these Terms so please read them carefully.

This Conference is organized by Noggin, which reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to limit or deny access to any entity or individual.

Conference Registration

Declaration of Consent

I hereby give my consent for Noggin to collect, process and use my personal data for the purposes of processing the purchase of my ticket and for any other use to which I have consented.

The information will be used for the purposes of processing ticket sales and compiling delegate lists, which will not be published or shared.

Attendee Cancellation Policy

If circumstances change and you can no longer attend this Conference, you may cancel your registration by providing written notice to the Noggin Events team events@noggin.io. Our attendee cancellation policy is outlined below.

Registrations may be refunded, or tickets reactivated, if cancellation is made in writing no less than 60 calendar days prior to the Conference start date. Cancellations received after the cancellation cutoff date (12 July 2019) or nonattendance will not be refunded and/or tickets will not be re-activated. Cancellations received after the cutoff date with a balance due will receive a cancellation invoice for the full registration amount due.

Please remember that canceling your registration does not automatically cancel your hotel and travel arrangements. Attendees are responsible for canceling their own hotel and travel reservations.

Force Majeure

After the cancellation cutoff date, payments made are not refundable for any reason, including, but not limited to, failure to use conference attendance credentials due to illness or due to any event beyond the reasonable control of the parties, such as an act of God, natural disaster, travel-related problems or an act of terrorism.

Substitution and Badge Policy

Badge substitutions can be made up until 7 days prior to event start date (5 September 2019 cutoff). “No Shows” will be deemed a cancellation per the cancellation cutoff date in the Cancellation Policy listed above.

You must notify Noggin in writing if you desire to substitute your registration so that we can update the attendee details. Written notifications must be sent to events@noggin.io

Sharing of Attendee passes is not permitted at any time. Badges are issued to, can be picked up by, and used by only the Attendee named in the registration.

Purchasing tickets

I hereby give my consent for the mandatory and voluntary data collected from me in the course of purchasing and or registering for tickets sold by Noggin.

Session Availability

Noggin User Conference Registration allows entry to all conference sessions but cannot guarantee admission to every session. Session admission is subject to venue capacity and other criteria.

Conference Speakers

Conference Guest Speaker sessions are central to the success of the Conference. In order to provide our attendees with a global platform for the exchange of ideas and insights, we invite key figures from various industries to share their personal perspectives. Guest speakers are not employees of Noggin and Noggin does not comment on the content of our guest speakers’ sessions. Guest Speaker views and opinions are entirely their own and in no way reflect the views and opinions of Noggin.

Use of Multimedia at the Event

In order to comply with global data privacy laws, Noggin imposes certain restrictions on the use of multimedia at its Conferences (i.e., photography, video, audio, online streaming and all future mediums).

Exhibitors and Attendees: For all areas of the Conference, Noggin (and at times approved third parties) hires professional service providers (photo/video/audio/streaming) to document and showcase the Conference experience.

For Attendees: Noggin leverages social media to post real-time Conferences photos and videos to its Social media feeds, and display select submissions from those feeds on screens throughout the venue. Attendees are encouraged to capture their Conference experiences in the permitted areas of the Conference venue and post their own social content from the Conference (text, photos, audio, video, streaming), provided it does not defame other Conference attendees or Exhibitors or infringe on copyrighted Noggin branding and content. Noggin will determine in its sole discretion which posted content will be displayed.

By attending the Conference, you acknowledge and agree as follows: (a) Noggin may edit and use the footage it captures at Noggin Conferences 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, Noggin disclaims all liability for the capture of your image by Attendees in any multimedia format at the Conference.
