Cisco Live Terms & Conditions (“Release”)

BY REGISTERING FOR AND ATTENDING CISCO LIVE (THE “EVENT”), SPONSORED BY CISCO SYSTEMS LTD. (“SPONSOR”), I HEREBY AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS RELEASE. 

ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I understand that participation in the Event may carry with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. The specific risks vary from one activity to another, but the risks range from 1) minor injuries such as scratches, bruises, and sprains; 2) major injuries such as eye injuries or loss of sight, joint or back injuries, heart attacks, and concussions; and 3) catastrophic injuries including paralysis and death.

I have read and understand the previous paragraph. I know, understand, and appreciate these and other risks that are inherent in the Event. I hereby assert that my participation in the Event is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks of injury, illness, death or other loss arising from or related to my participation in the Event.

RELEASE OF LIABILITY: Consistent with the above assumption of risk and to the fullest extent allowable by law, I, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives, executors and assigns, hereby release, waive, forever discharge, and covenant not to sue Sponsor, its affiliates, vendors, agents and contractors and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents from any and all manner of claims (including, but not limited to individual or class action claims, claims for monetary or equitable relief and claims for actual or punitive damages), demands, actions, causes of action, liability, and damages of any kind whatsoever, including but not limited to claims arising out of, based upon or related to the actual or alleged negligence or reckless misconduct (“Claims”) of Sponsor, its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, and attorneys, resulting in personal injury, accidents, or illnesses (including death) and property loss arising from, related to or in connection with participation in the Event. I understand that this release shall be binding upon my heirs, personal representatives, executors and assigns. Nothing in this Release shall limit Sponsor’s liability (1) for personal injury or death caused by its negligence, (2) in the tort of deceit, (3) any breach of the obligations implied by section 12 Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 or (4) which cannot be excluded under applicable law.

SEVERABILITY: I further expressly agree that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risk agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of England and Wales and that if any portion is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect. 

IMAGE USE: I understand that Sponsor or its authorized representatives may conduct interviews and may take photographs and/or videotape at the Event. I hereby grant to the Sponsor and its authorized representatives the absolute right and permission to use my name, likeness, biographical information, voice, content of any interview, image and/or photograph and any other indicia of persona (“Persona”) or to refrain from doing so, in any manner or media whether existing now or hereinafter developed (including without limitation the World Wide Web and the Internet), worldwide, for trade, advertising and/or promotional purposes. 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 authorized representatives harmless for any and all such use(s). 

COPYRIGHT: The Event shares content owned by or licensed to Sponsor (“Sponsor Content”). Sponsor owns and retains all rights in the Sponsor Content, including all intellectual property rights. Sponsor hereby grants me a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to view and display (but not modify) the Sponsor Content solely as necessary for my authorized use of the information.

PERSONAL INFORMATION: I understand that Sponsor will collect personal information that I elect to provide about myself for the purpose of associating that information with my Event registration badge. I understand that based on the preferences I choose to provide in the Consent and Opt in section of this registration application, Sponsor may retain and use that personal information to provide me with information about the Event, follow up events, and Sponsor’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 Sponsor should I so wish. Further information on how Sponsor collects and uses personal information and how I may access and correct such information or initiate a complaint, is available at Sponsor’s Privacy Statement at http://www.cisco.com/web/siteassets/legal/privacy.html

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. 

DATA COLLECTION BY THIRD PARTIES: I understand that the Event area includes exhibiting partners of Sponsor with separate badge scanning devices and that if I agree to my Event 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. Sponsor requires each exhibiting partner to only use such personal information for the purpose of providing that attendee with information about and marketing that exhibiting partner’s products and services. However, I understand that Sponsor cannot control uses and disclosures by an exhibiting partner of any such personal information and I release Sponsor from any responsibility or liability for use or disclosure by an exhibiting partner of my personal information. I understand that if I do not want my information shared, I should not allow my badge to be scanned. I will have to opt out with the exhibiting partner directly if I later decide to do so.

PRIVACY: Except to the extent that I have agreed otherwise, personal data provided by me as part of the Event will only be used for the purposes of administering my participation in the Event and will be processed in accordance with Cisco’s Privacy Statement, which can be located at: http://www.cisco.com/web/siteassets/legal/privacy.html.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING: I am eighteen (18) years of age or older. I have carefully read this Agreement, fully understand its terms, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I understand that I have the right to have a legal adviser review this Agreement. I acknowledge that I am signing the Agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend by my signature for this to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.
