The individual agreeing to these terms represents and warrants to us that such individual is at least 16 years of age. You agree to be bound by these terms and to indemnify ICHOM for any violation of these Terms by any individual employed or engaged by You. You represent and warrant to us that You have registered to attend the Event having only used a registration code that You are authorised to use.
ICHOM, the Event organizer, is an organization that is organized in the United States of America and therefore must comply with U.S. sanctions law. You represent and warrant to us that neither You nor any of Your Attendees (as defined below) (i) are currently on the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) List of Specially Designated Nationals and Other Blocked Persons (including terrorists and narcotics traffickers) (the “OFAC List”); (ii) are affiliated with any entity or organization on the OFAC List; or (iii) are on any similarly restricted party listings, including without limitation those maintained by other governments pursuant to applicable United Nations, regional or national trade or financial sanctions. If You, any of Your Attendees or any entity or organization with which You are affiliated, are added to any such restricted party list prior to the Event, then You must notify us immediately. The OFAC List can be found by visiting http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/SDN-List/Pages/default.aspx. ICHOM may cancel or terminate these Terms (and any access granted to You to the Event or Services) without penalty or liability if we reasonably believe it is necessary to do so in order for us to comply with our obligations under such applicable laws or regulations, including if You are added to any restricted party listings as described in this section. Cancellation or termination under this provision will result in forfeiture of all fees paid by You, in conformance with U.S. sanctions law.
All payments must be made in US Dollars . Admission to the Event will not be granted without payment in full received by the applicable due date. ICHOM’s receipt of: (i) an application for registration; or (ii) You making a payment for registration does not constitute ICHOM’s acceptance of Your offer to register for the Event. Applications and payments that are not accepted by ICHOM will be returned. Whether or not ICHOM accepts Your application shall be in ICHOM’s sole discretion.
Currency Exchange Rate Disclaimer: You confirm acknowledgment and acceptance of a potential gain/loss incurred by any adjustments made by Your bank due to the currency exchange rate. ICHOM will not be liable or responsible for any loss incurred by You from an adjustment made due to the currency exchange rate. Nor will ICHOM pursue You for collection if that adjustment should be made in Your favor.
If any of Your Attendees can no longer attend the Event, Your Attendee may cancel Your Attendee’s registration by providing written notice to the ICHOM team at email@example.com . We will not be obligated to refund You any amount of the registration fee for the Event and, if You still have a balance due, You agree to pay any such balance due promptly. Except as set forth above, You will liable for the full cost of Your Attendee’s admission to the Event and any additional Services related to the Event notwithstanding a subsequent cancellation or Your Attendee’s failure to attend.

ICHOM reserves the right to cancel Your registration without notice if (i) payment as required by these Terms is not received by ICHOM in a timely fashion, (ii) You fail to provide details as required in the relevant registration form, or (iii) You are in violation of any of these Terms or any other applicable terms and conditions. You agree that ICHOM is not responsible for any damages, direct or indirect, resulting from any cancellation. All payments must be submitted within the time frames set forth in the relevant registration form.
Should ICHOM postpone the date, change the format or change the location of any session or element of the Event, registered attendees who have paid the registration fees in full for the Event will be provided with admission to any substitute or modified session.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE IN NO EVENT SHALL ICHOM BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, MULTIPLE OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES RESULTING FROM A POSTPONEMENT, CANCELLATION, OR TERMINATION, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY COSTS OR EXPENSES OF TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATIONS. No costs, including but not limited to travel or accommodations, will be refunded for any reason whatsoever, except to the extent otherwise set forth herein.
For any In-Person Session, if applicable, You shall require each of Your Attendees to carry at all times during the Event, government issued photo identification in the form of a passport, national ID card or the like, and to produce such identification to: (i) collect an attendee badge (including any replacement badge); (ii) enter the Event venue; (iii) upon request.
Each of Your employees or contractors that attends any In-Person Session (collectively, “Your Attendees”) must personally submit appropriate identification information.

Substitutions between attendees from the same company and at the same invoice address may be made by providing ICHOM with written notice of the name of the original delegate and full details of the substitute registrant. Once a badge for a named Event attendee has been issued, no substitutions will be permitted.
