Pluralsight LIVE: General Terms and Conditions
Last modified: May 4, 2018 (v. 1.0.0)
These are the terms (the “Agreement”) governing your attendance at and participation in Pluralsight Live (the “Event”). By registering for the Event, you agree to these terms, which form a binding legal contract between Pluralsight, LLC (“Pluralsight”) and the registered attendee or participant (“you”). If you are registering on behalf of another individual, it is your responsibility to ensure the person attending is aware of these terms and accepts them. By completing the registration on behalf of another individual you are warranting that you have made the attendee or participant aware of these terms and that they have accepted these terms.
1. Attendee Requirements
(a) Admittance. Your registration entitles you to admittance to the Event for which you have registered. Any and all other costs associated with your attendance (including without limitation travel and accommodation expenses) shall be borne solely by you, and Pluralsight shall have no liability for such costs.
(b) Use of Likeness. By attending the Event you acknowledge and agree to grant Pluralsight the right at the Event to record, film, photograph, or capture your likeness in any media now available or hereafter developed and to distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise globally to disseminate, in perpetuity, such media without any further approval from you or any payment to you. This grant to Pluralsight 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.
(c) Event Content. You acknowledge and agree that Pluralsight, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to change any and all aspects of the Event, including but not limited to, the Event name, themes, content, program, speakers, performers, hosts, moderators, venue, and time.
(d) Attendee Badge Usage. Attendee badges must be worn at all times in Event areas. Badges will be scanned at various checkpoints throughout the Event venue, including at sponsor booths. You consent to your name and email being shared with sponsors when you permit them to scan your badge at the Event.
(e) Visa Requirements. It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to take care of any government visa requirements. Attendees who require an entry visa should allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Attendees should contact the nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications. Pluralsight will not contact embassies and consulates on behalf of visa applicants or provide any other assistance relating to visa issues. Failure to obtain a visa in advance of an Event does not constitute a valid basis for obtaining a refund.
2. Prohibited Conduct
(a) Limitations on Use. By registering and paying for the Event, you agree not to share, sell or trade your badge. If Pluralsight determines that you have violated this policy, Pluralsight may cancel your badge(s), retain any payments made by you, report you to law enforcement authorities, and ban you from future Events.
(b) Harassment. All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Pluralsight will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, Pluralsight may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can found at the registration desk. Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance. We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
(c) Disruptive Conduct. You acknowledge and agree that Pluralsight reserves the right to remove you from the Event if Pluralsight, in its sole discretion, determines that your presence or behavior create a disruption or hinder the Event or the enjoyment of the Event by other attendees. All Pluralsight badges are the property of Pluralsight and must be returned to Pluralsight upon request.
(d) Suitcasing. “Suitcasing” refers to the practice of attending a trade show but “working the aisles” from a suitcase or briefcase, soliciting business from other attendees and exhibitors. For the good of the show and the exhibitors supporting the show, the only legitimate place to conduct business during show hours is within a contracted exhibit space on the show floor. Exhibiting companies are encouraged to protect their investment and report any violations to Pluralsight management. Attendees observed soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, or in another company’s booth, will be ejected from the Event and may be banned from future events in Pluralsight’s sole discretion.
(e) Photography, Recording, Live Streaming, and Videotaping. Attendees may not record or broadcast audio or video of sessions at Pluralsight Events. Pluralsight allows cameras on the show floor. Attendees may take pictures within the show for purposes of company or annual reports, company media pieces, marketing materials, etc.
(f) Unethical/Non-Compliant Marketing. Pluralsight reserves the right to deny admission to anyone who engages in or is reputed to engage in unethical or non- compliant marketing practices.
(g) In addition to the requirements and prohibitions set forth in this Section 2, Pluralsight may also exclude any prospective attendee from registering for or attending any Event, in Pluralsight’s sole discretion. Furthermore, Pluralsight reserves the right to cancel, in its sole discretion, any attendee’s registration upon refund of the admission fees paid to Pluralsight; provided, however, that if an attendee is cancelled for violating any prohibition or requirement set forth in this Section 2, Pluralsight may retain all fees paid.
(a) Payment. The payment of the applicable fees for the Event is due upon registration. If such payment is insufficient or declined for any reason Pluralsight may refuse to admit you to the Event and shall have no liability in that regard.
(b) Taxes. The fees may be subject sales tax, value added tax, or other taxes and duties which, if applicable, will be charged to you in addition to the fees.
