Payments: All bookings made prior to the event must be paid in full to guarantee registration.

Early Bird Rate: In order to qualify for any “early bird” rates or discounts, booking and payment must be received before the deadline date listed in the event marketing material.

Cancellation Policy: Our cancellation policy allows for a full refund or a 50% refund, depending on the circumstances, as long as the written cancellation request is received by CAI before the deadline date listed in the event marketing materials.  These deadline dates may differ depending on the event, so check your event marketing materials closely.  Substitutions may be made up to 72 hours prior to the event date.  If a registered Attendee does not cancel and fails to attend the event, this will be treated as a cancellation and no refund will be issued.

Speakers: Views expressed by speakers who are not CAI employees are their own.  CAI is not liable for advice given, or views expressed, by any speaker or exhibitor at the event that is not a CAI employee.  CAI may audio and/or video tape the sessions and the recording may be reproduced and sold as part of the overall event materials.  Any acknowledgement regarding copyright or support should be included at the end of presentation materials, as these may be distributed to the event Attendees.  Speakers who do not wish to give permission for the above terms and conditions should contact the events team before the commencement of the event and/or so inform the event team when the speaker submits his/her materials.

Data Protection: To ensure all our Attendees, sponsors and exhibitors derive greatest value from our events, we share a list of Attendees with sponsors and exhibitors for their planning purposes before the event.  By submitting registration details, Attendees agree to allow CAI and companies associated with the event to contact them regarding their services.  Attendees who wish to opt-out of having their information shared or who do not wish to receive such communications may contact the CAI event team at events@commandalkon.com.  The contact details of registered Attendees will be placed on the Attendee list which will be passed to sponsors, exhibitors and to all Attendees for them to see who is at the event for the purpose of networking and meetings.  Attendees who do not wish to be included on this list should advise the CAI event team at the time of booking.

Websites & Links: The event and associated CAI websites may link to other websites and networking tools provided for the convenience of the users.  The contents of these websites are maintained by their owners, for which CAI takes no responsibility.  CAI also does not take responsibility for contents of any website linking to the CAI event or associated CAI websites.

Warranties and Limitation of Liability: CAI cannot be held liable for any loss, liability or damage to personal property of Attendees at the event.  CAI gives no warranties with respect to the event or any materials related thereto or offered at the event and, to the fullest extent possible under the laws governing these Terms, disclaims all implied warranties, including but not limited to warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, timeliness and merchantability.  Neither CAI nor its affiliates can accept any responsibility or liability for reliance by you or any person on any aspect of the event and/or any information provided at the event.  Other than to the extent required as a matter of law: (i) neither CAI nor its affiliates shall be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential costs, damages or losses arising directly or indirectly from the event.  The maximum aggregate liability of CAI for any claim in any way connected to the event, whether in contract, tort or otherwise (including any negligent act or omission), shall be limited to the amount paid by you to CAI to attend the event.

Governing Law: These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Alabama and the parties shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Alabama courts to adjudicate any dispute related to these Terms or the event.

Photographs, Publicity Material, Radio and Television and Print Media: CAI reserves the sole right to use any photographs, recordings, electronic images or publicity material received by or obtained by CAI in the course of the event, for whatever use deemed proper by CAI.  CAI has the exclusive right to include photographic, video and other visual portrayals of Attendees, sponsors, exhibitors and their exhibits including contents, in any pictorial medium of any nature whatsoever for the purpose of trade, advertising, sales, publicity and otherwise, without compensation to the Attendee, sponsor or exhibitor, and all right, title, and interest bearing (including all worldwide copyrights therein) will be CAI’s sole property, free of any claims of Attendee, sponsor or exhibitor, or any persons deriving any rights or interest from the Attendee, sponsor or exhibitor.  By attending the event, you acknowledge and agree as follows: (a) CAI may edit and use the footage it captures at CAI events for marketing and promotional activities and for any other lawful purpose in the ordinary course of its business; and (b) due to the prevalence of mobile recording devices in today’s world, CAI disclaims all liability for the capture of your image by Attendees (who are not under the control of CAI) in any multimedia format at the event.  This authorization shall continue indefinitely unless the Attendee revokes said authorization in writing by sending a request to privacy@commandalkon.com.

Credentials: CAI-issued credentials are the sole property of CAI and must be surrendered upon demand to CAI representatives.  CAI-issued credentials must be prominently displayed while at the event or designated off-site activities.  False certification of an individual as an Attendee or exhibitor’s representative, misuse of an Attendee badge, or any other method or device used to assist unauthorized personnel to gain admittance to the event, will be just cause for expelling the Attendee and his representative(s) from the event and/or banning them from future entrance into the event.  This would also warrant the removal of an exhibitor’s booth from the floor without obligation on the part of CAI for refund of any fees.  The Attendee, exhibitor, his/her employees and agents, and anyone claiming to be in the event through the Attendee, waives any rights or claims for damages arising out of the enforcement of this rule.

Admittance: In its sole discretion and without refund, CAI reserves the right to refuse admittance to or expel from the event anyone that it determines is behaving in a manner that could be disruptive to the event or any other Attendee.

Antitrust: As a general matter, antitrust laws prohibit competitors from agreeing on the prices they will charge, the products they will offer, the customers they will serve, and the markets in which they will compete.  One central concern of these laws is with combinations or agreement in restraint of trade whereby competition is reduced by design.  Agreements among competitors that unreasonably restrain or limit competition are unlawful under the antitrust laws and violators are subject to criminal fines and incarceration, civil fines and private treble damage actions.  Examples of such illegal agreements by competitors are agreements to fix or stabilize prices, agreements to allocate territories or customers, and agreements to limit production or output.  Accordingly, it is inherently risky and potentially improper for competitors to discuss at CAI events, or otherwise, the subjects of prices, terms and conditions of sale, markets, individual customers, individual company costs, and other elements or factors that may affect competition.  It is important to bear in mind that those in attendance at CAI events may include competitors.  Any discussion of sensitive antitrust subjects with one’s competitors should be avoided at all times before, during, and after any CAI event.  If at any time during the course of any meeting or activity, CAI employees believe that a sensitive topic under the antitrust laws is being discussed, or is about to be discussed, they will so advise and halt further discussion.  Attendees at any meeting or activity should likewise not hesitate to voice any concerns they may have in this regard to the CAI event team.  You agree, as an Attendee, not to conduct or partake in any communications associated with a CAI event that constitute a violation of antitrust laws.

Force Majeure: CAI shall not be held responsible for any delay or failure in performance of its obligations hereunder to the extent such delay or failure is caused by fire, flood, strike, civil, governmental or military authority, acts of God, acts of terrorism, acts of war, epidemics, the availability of the venue or other similar causes beyond its reasonable control and without the fault or negligence of CAI or its subcontractors.  For one or more of such reasons, CAI may postpone, reschedule or cancel the event without liability on the part of CAI.  If the event cannot be held or is postponed pursuant to this section, CAI shall not be liable to Attendee for any damages, costs, or losses incurred, such as transportation costs, accommodations costs, or financial losses.  CAI will review refund and/or fee transfer requests, submitted in writing, for approval on a situational basis.
