Admittance

Your registration entitles you to admittance to IVACON. Your level of access is dependent on the type of ticket you purchase. Any and all other costs associated with your attendance shall be borne solely by you, and IVA shall have no liability for such costs.

By attending IVACON, you expressly grant consent to IVA, along with its successors and assigns, the right to record, film, photograph, or capture your likeness in any media now available or hereafter developed, and the right to distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise globally disseminate, in perpetuity, such media without any further approval from you or any payment to you. This grant to IVA includes, but is not limited to, the right to edit such media, the right to use the media alone or together with other information, and the right to allow others to use or disseminate the media.

You hereby release, discharge, and agree to hold IVA and its affiliates harmless from, and agree not to sue for, any claim or cause of action, whether known or unknown, for libel, slander, invasion of right of privacy, unfair competition, false or misleading advertising, violation of a right to publicity or personality, or any other claim or cause of action, based upon or relating to the use of your likeness or the exercise of any of the rights referred to herein. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless IVA and its affiliates from and against any liabilities, losses, claims, demands, costs (including, but not limited to attorneys’ fees) and expenses arising in connection with any breach or alleged breach of any of the above representations, warranties or agreement hereunder.

Fees

Your ticket for IVACON 2019 must be paid in full on or before May 1, 2019. You will not be able to participate in IVACON if we do not receive your full payment by that date.

An invoice for the first installment of payment plans will be issued within 3 working days of registration. Remaining invoices will be issued each month on the date that corresponds with the date of your first invoice.

If you have registered for two payments 6 months apart, you will receive your first invoice 3 days after your registration. The second payment will be due exactly 6 months after that date. For example, if you register on July 20, 2018, you will receive your second invoice on January 20, 2019.

If you have registered for six payments, each 1 month apart, you will receive your first invoice 3 days after your registration, then subsequent invoices will be sent monthly on the same day of each month. For example, if you register on August 4, 2018, your first invoice will be issued on August 7, and each remaining invoice will be issued on the 7th day of each month for five months.

Payments are due no later than 7 days after the date of the invoice.

Neither IVA nor its affiliates accept any responsibility or liability for reliance by you or any person on any aspect of IVACON or any information provided at IVACON.

The maximum aggregate liability of IVA for any claim in any way connected with, or arising from, IVACON or this Agreement, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise (including any negligent act or omission), shall be limited to the amount paid by you to IVA under this Agreement.

All of the information provided at IVACON is for informational use only. Purchase of a ticket or attendance at IVACON does not form any professional relationship between you and IVA.  Although members of IVA and speakers at IVACON may be licensed professionals, neither IVA nor its speakers provide any type of professional services unless they are directly engaged for such a relationship.

You agree to carefully consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and to take reasonable precautions before you choose to attend or participate in IVACON.

No Waiver

IVA’s failure to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any rights hereunder.

Severability

Should any provisions of these Terms of Service be or become illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of these General Terms and Conditions shall not be affected. These provisions are automatically replaced by valid and enforceable provisions which achieve the intended economic effect as closely as possible.

Choice of Law and Jurisdiction

This Contract, the issue of its valid conclusion, and its pre- and post-contractual effects, are governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the United States of America. The Parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Las Vegas, Nevada. A Party will not object to that forum for any reason.

If you conclude this contract as a consumer under the European consumer laws, the choice of law and jurisdiction above may be invalid.

Legal Nature

You act on your own account and risk and in your own name. This agreement shall constitute neither a company nor a similar relationship nor an employment relationship. You may not act in IVA’s name or for IVA’s account.

No right of withdrawal

If you book IVACON and don’t qualify as a consumer as defined by the DIRECTIVE 2011/83/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL you don’t have a right of withdrawal. If you qualify as a consumer according to said directive, you don’t have a right of withdrawal either because according to Article 16 lit l DIRECTIVE 2011/83/EU contracts about the provision of accommodation other than for residential purpose, transport of goods, car rental services, catering or services related to leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period of performance constitute an exception from the right of withdrawal. IVACON is a leisure activity that provides for a specific date or period of performance, thus you don’t have a right of withdrawal.
