I agree I shall have no rights of review or approval, no Claim to compensation, and no Claim arising out of or resulting from the use, alteration, blurring, distortion or illusionary effect (whether intentional or otherwise) or use in any composite form of my Persona and agree to release and hold Sponsor and its authorised representatives harmless for any and all such use(s).

PASSIVE TRACKING DISCLOSURE: By attending Cisco Live you are opting in to being tracked by technology for the use of Event logistics and operations.
PERSONAL INFORMATION: I consent to Cisco collecting personal information that I elect to provide about me for the purpose of associating that information with my Cisco Live registration badge and for Event related purposes. I consent to Cisco retaining and using that personal information to provide me with information about the Event, follow up events, and Cisco’s products and services, including by electronic and other direct marketing communications such as emails and SMS. I understand that I may unsubscribe from receipt of such subsequent communications from Cisco should I so wish. I understand that the Cisco Live area includes but not limited to Exhibiting Partners of Cisco with separate badge scanning devices and that if I consent to my Cisco Live registration badge being scanned by an Exhibiting Partner or in a session where an Exhibiting Partner is speaking, that Exhibiting Partner may receive my name, affiliation, and contact details associated with my conference badge. I understand that if I do not want my information shared, I should not allow my badge to be scanned. Once disclosed to that Exhibiting Partner that personal information ceases to be controlled by Cisco and may be used or disclosed by that Exhibiting Partner.

However, I understand that Cisco cannot control uses and disclosures by an Exhibiting Partner of any personal information that I elect to make available to that Sponsor by consenting to that Exhibiting Partner scanning my Cisco Live registration badge and I release Cisco from any responsibility or liability for use or disclosure by a Exhibiting Partner of my personal information.
EVENT BADGES: I understand that Event badges are personal to each attendee, and that I must always wear my own badge while onsite at the Event. Once checked into the Event, I agree not to transfer or share my badge with others, and I will comply with the ID and badge checks that take place each day of the Event. If I am found to be in violation of the badge policy, I understand that Sponsor and/or Event staff may confiscate my badge and I may not return to the Event.
