This document sets out the terms and conditions between Quantum Metric, Inc. (“Quantum Metric” or “Organizer”) and you (“you,” or “Attendee”) when you register for any of Quantum Metric’s Leap Into series of conferences (the “Conference”).  By registering for each Conference, you are agreeing to comply with these terms and conditions.

    Submission of an online registration for a conference in the Quantum Leap Into series of conferences  (the “Conference”) is regarded as a firm booking and acceptance of these terms and conditions. If applicable, payment in full will be required at the time of registration. 
    Quantum Metric is committed to data privacy and protecting your personal information.  Information on how Quantum Metric collects, processes and uses your data is included in the Quantum Metric Privacy Policy (Link: https://www.quantummetric.com/legal/privacy).  The personal information supplied in connection with this registration will be held by Quantum Metric as a record of Attendee’s expressing interest. By registering for this conference, you agree that the Quantum Metric may use your personal information to contact you by email, direct mail or telephone, in order to supply information relevant to this conference, or about other conferences, events and opportunities that the Organizer is planning and feel may be of interest to you, as well as information about Quantum Metric’s products and services. The Organizer may also share this information with its conference sponsors and/or partners in order for them to contact the attendees about other products and services which may be of interest to them.
    • 3.1. In the unlikely event of the Conference being cancelled by the Organizer, for paid registrations a full refund will be made. Liability will be limited to the amount of the fee paid by the Attendee and there will not be any additional liability to Quantum Metric, Conference hosts or any other individual associated with the Conference organization.
    • 2.2 In the event that the Conference cannot be held or is postponed due to events beyond the control of the Organizer (force majeure) or due to events which are not attributable to wrongful intent or gross negligence of Quantum Metric, liability will be limited to the amount of fees paid by the Attendee and there will not be any additional liability to Quantum Metric, Conference hosts or any other individual associated with the Conference organization. Under these circumstances, the Organizer reserves the right to refund the fees paid minus a 25% admin fee plus any bank transfer fee incurred.  For the avoidance of doubt, Quantum Metric has no liability if an attendee is unable to attend the Conference due to a technical issue on Attendee’s part, including but not limited to an internet outage.
    Quantum Metric reserves the right to make alterations to the Conference program, platform offer through and timings at any time. In the event of it being found necessary, for whatever reason, that the conference is being postponed or the dates being changed, the Organizer shall not be liable for any expenditure, damage or loss incurred by the Attendee. If by re-arrangement or postponement of the Conference takes place, the booking between the Attendee and the Organizer shall remain in force and will be subject to the cancellation schedule above.
    In consideration for being allowed to register for, and participate in the Conference, you hereby freely waive, release from liability, assume all risks, and covenant not to sue Quantum Metric, or its employees, board members and/or agents for any expense, loss, damage, personal injury, including loss of life, property damage, or property theft or actions of any kind that you may suffer before, during or after the Conference, unless said expense, loss, damage, or personal injury is caused by the sole, gross negligence of Quantum Metric.  Views expressed by speakers, sponsors and/or exhibitors are their own. Quantum Metric cannot accept liability for any advice given, or views expressed, by any speaker, sponsor and/or exhibitor at the conference or in any material provided to attendees. In addition, Quantum Metric shall not be responsible or liable for any direct or indirect loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of the services or information provided in connection with the Conference.  In no event, where applicable law permits, shall Quantum Metric’s total liability to you for all damages and losses with respect to these Terms and Conditions exceed the amount fees paid by Attendee. This Liability Waiver and Release is specifically binding upon your heirs and assigns and is knowingly given.
    It is the responsibility of the Attendee to arrange appropriate insurance cover in connection with their attendance at the conference. Quantum Metric cannot be held liable for any loss, liability or damage to personal property.
    By attending the Conference, you are participating on a virtual platform where photography, audio and video recording may occur.  By agreeing to these terms, you consent to photography, audio recording, video recording and its release, publication, exhibition, or reproduction to be used for promotional purposes, advertising, inclusion on websites, social media, or any other purpose by Quantum Metric and its representatives. You waive all rights to any claims for payment or royalties in connection with any use of these materials. You also waive any right to inspect or approve any photo, video, or audio recordings taken by Quantum Metric or the person or entity designated to do so by Quantum Metric.  Further, as the Conference is taking place on a virtual platform, Quantum Metric disclaims all liability for the capture of your image in any multimedia format by other attendees at the event.

    Attendees and sponsors are encouraged to capture their Conference experiences and post their own social content from the event (text, photos, audio, video, streaming), provided it does not infringe upon the rights of any attendee, sponsor, third party, or Quantum Metric.  Such infringement would include, but is not limited to, defamation or infringement of intellectual property rights.  In the event an Attendee requires a release or permission to protect the rights of a third party, obtaining such a release or permission shall be the sole responsibility of the Attendee.
