The date and location of the event that these terms apply to is listed on the registration form you filled out (“Event”). The following Registration Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”) apply to you and any party you are registering for participation in the Event (“Attendee”, “You” or “Your”), and Your registration, attendance, participation, enrollment, and/or application for involvement in the Event, including but not limited to your purchase and/or possession of any Optimizely Event entry material, such as badges, wristbands, tickets, passes, and give aways (“Credentials”). By completing registration for the event, clicking to accept these Terms, and/or obtaining your Credentials, you agree to these Terms.
You will need to register in accordance with the instructions on our registration form in order to be eligible to participate in the Event. Please answer all the registration questions to complete your registration. The registration information you provide must be accurate and current. You must not bring or invite any non-registered individual to the Event or any program, activity or other session related to the event unless Optimizely explicitly invites you to do so in writing.
Optimizely may issue you Credentials to allow you entry to the event and/or to a particular event session. Credentials are issued to, can be picked up and used by, only the specific individual named in the registration. Different Credential types may provide access to different portions of or sessions at the event. All Credentials are the sole property of Optimizely. Optimizely may, in its sole discretion and at any time, cancel, revoke or refuse from any individual or company said Credentials. Event admission is subject to venue capacity and in compliance with state and local laws. We further reserve the right to check your Credentials at any time and to refuse entry to individuals who do not present their Credentials. Optimizely will not be responsible for any penalty, fee, loss, or expense that might result from such action.
Credentials are non-transferable without Optimizely's written permission. Unused Credentials have no monetary value and cannot be credited to another Optimizely event, program or seminar. Optimizely Credentials may not be used as a prize in any form of promotion, contest, game, or sweepstakes without written pre-approval from Optimizely.
Payments must be made in accordance with reasonable instructions provided by Optimizely to You on the registration form or in a subsequent written communication, including sending payment to a third party of Optimizely’s choice, such as an event administration company. Wire transfer fees and/or city, state, or federal taxes are the responsibility of the attendee and should not be deducted from the registration fees. Optimizely will not issue refunds or credits due to failure to redeem a discount coupon during the registration process.
