Though our corporate attorney initially provided us these terms and conditions in the form of iambic pentameter with a keatsian ode rhyme scheme, we told her she went to law school and not ‘poetry’ school for a reason, and that nothing actually rhymes with ‘force majeure.’
That being said, we couldn’t stop her (and we REALLY tried to stop her) from making the Preamble into a limerick:
HPSN Registration Terms and Conditions
For those registering for HPSN twenty-seventeen
please read below the terms illuminated brightly upon your screen.
As set forth, these terms describe those specific conditions
which you (the “Registrant”) must follow for conference admission.
By registering online, you are hereby agreein’.
1. Registration Process and Payment
Registrants must register for the Event by creating an online account through HPSN.com.
Registrants will be able to pay the registration fee via check, wire transfer, or credit card. In the event that payment is not received within 30 days of Registration, Registrant will lose any selected Agenda spots, as well as any early bird promotional discounts offered at the time of registration. Payment must be received prior to the event in order for Registrant to be admitted. Any person who creates an account may choose to register additional individuals, and is therefore responsible for full payment of those registrations as well.
Accommodation costs are not included in the Registration Fee. Registrants are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements.
2. Cancellation Policy
Cancellations, by individuals or groups, must be done by canceling through Registrant’s HPSN.com account.
The following cancellation policy shall apply:
Cancelations received 90 days out will receive a refund of registration fees less an administration charge of $25.00.
Cancelations received 60 days out will receive a refund of registration fees less an administration charge of $50.00.
Cancellations made less than 30 days from the event, as well as ‘no shows’, are liable for the full registration fee and are not entitled to a refund.
3. Event Cancellation
CAE Healthcare reserves the right to cancel any event at any time and at its sole discretion. In the event of such a cancellation, CAE Healthcare will refund any registration fees paid. This refund shall be the full extent of the Institute’s liability to the registrant arising out of such cancellation.
In the event of cancellation, CAE Healthcare will use reasonable efforts to alert those who have booked to attend an event or purchased tickets and details of any cancellation will be posted on the appropriate event website.
4. Program Changes
CAE Healthcare reserves the right to make alterations to the program at any time without prior notice.
5. Data Protection
The information given to CAE Healthcare by the registrant will be recorded in CAE Healthcare’s databases and will be used for marketing, administration and promotional purposes, which will only be used by CAE Healthcare. CAE Healthcare does not record or store credit card information.Unless CAE Healthcare receives an explicit written request in advance from a Registrant confirming that they do not want to share their contact information, a list of all delegates, their affiliation institutions, and email addresses may be included in the Event packet.
In addition, Registrant acknowledges that CAE Healthcare at the event may take photographs and/or video footage of all or part of it. CAE Healthcare may then include any of these photographs and/or video footage on any of its websites and/or other promotional materials, at its discretion; unless it receives an explicit written request from Registrant confirming that Registrant does not want CAE Healthcare to use any such images.
Registrants are expected to behave professionally. Excessive use of obscene language, abusive behavior, or threatening behavior directed to any other conference attendee is not conducive to a learning environment.
Registrants are required to comply with the rules and regulations governing the applicable venue and/or accommodation. Registrant shall insure and keep insured any property they bring onto the venue and/or the accommodation, and any such property is brought onto or left, at the venue and/or the accommodation at their own risk.
CAE Healthcare shall only be liable to Registrants for proven direct losses suffered due to the negligent acts or omissions of CAE Healthcare, and liability for such proven direct losses is limited in total to the amount paid by the Registrant to the CAE Healthcare for the Event. CAE Healthcare shall not be liable for any property damage or loss incurred at any time during the event. CAE Healthcare shall not be liable (whether such liability arises due to negligence, breach of contract, misrepresentation, or otherwise) for any direct losses or damages not stated above or for any indirect or consequential losses or damages howsoever arising. This shall include, but not be limited to, (and whether direct, indirect or consequential) loss of use or any profit, business, or data or any loss of use or damage suffered by any delegate as a result of an action brought by a third party, even if such loss was reasonably foreseeable.
8. Governing Law
These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of the State of Florida. Venue shall be in Sarasota County, Florida. At CAE Healthcare's sole determination, CAE Healthcare may select an alternative forum, including arbitration or mediation, to adjudicate any dispute arising out of these terms and conditions.
