Terms and Conditions

Live Valves 2019 will be henceforth known as “the Event.”

All registrants of the Event are subject to the following registration terms and conditions.  These terms and conditions are strongly enforced for the Event by the organizers of the Event, the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) and Leipzig Heart Institute (LHI).

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations received in writing before Wednesday, October 30, 2019 (by 11:59 PM CET/5:59 PM ET) will receive a full refund minus a €90 administrative fee. Cancellations received between Thursday, October 31 and Monday, December 1, 2019 (by 11:59 PM CET/5:59 PM ET) will be refunded 50% of the registration fee. No refunds will be processed for cancellations filed after Monday, December 1, 2019.

Wire Payments

Acceptable forms of payment include credit card and wire. If you would like to pay by wire, a mandatory €75 wire processing fee will automatically be added to your total.

Identification at Registration

Registration materials will not be provided without a valid photo ID.

Unless you are an exhibitor or part of a group that has arranged for an advance group pickup of badges, individuals may only collect their own individual registration materials. This procedure is in place to protect registration materials from getting lost and to allow CRF and LHI to monitor accurate attendance.

Prohibition of Badge Swapping, Sharing, or Lending

Each person attending the Event will be issued an Event-specific badge bearing that person’s name and must have the badge bearing their name in their possession at all times while on the premises of the Event venue. THE SWAPPING, SHARING, AND LENDING OF AN EVENT BADGE TO ANY OTHER PERSON IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

Anyone found to be wearing a badge that does not bear their name will have the badge immediately confiscated and will be escorted from the premises. Additionally, the attendance privileges of the person whose name appears on the confiscated badge will be revoked and that person will also be escorted from the premises. No replacement badges will be provided and no refunds will be made, in whole or in part, for those who have had their badge(s) confiscated.

Violators of this policy (the person to whom the badge was issued, the person found to be in possession of the badge, and, where appropriate, the company that purchased the badge) may also be banned from attending or participating at any future CRF or LHI event. In instances where an exhibiting company is found to have violated this policy, the exhibiting company will also be penalized with a reduction in priority points. In cases where CRF or LHI are willing to permit a person found to be in violation of this policy to once again have access to the Event, the person or the exhibiting company (as applicable) will be required to re-register and will be charged the full cost of the additional registration. All decisions regarding compliance with or violations of this policy will be made by CRF and LHI in parties’ sole and exclusive discretion.

Limitation of Liability

By registering for Live Valves 2019, you agree to release and hold harmless CRF and LHI, organizers of the Event, from any and all claims, demands, and causes of action arising out of or relating to your participation in the Event and all meeting events, including but not limited to the use of the conference center and lodging facilities.

Recording (Audio, Video, and Still Photography) and Social Media

Non-flash photography and audio or video recording made using handheld equipment for strictly personal, educational, and/or social use is permitted at the Event if not disruptive.

Communicating through social media, including posting brief audio and video clips, is strongly encouraged (respecting embargo rules for late-breaking science). However, posting or livestreaming entire sessions or live cases is strictly prohibited (the latter to respect patient privacy), as is the use of any course content for commercial purposes. Exhibitors may film, record, or photograph activities at their own booth for promotional purposes only upon prior written consent of CRF and LHI.

Post-Event Photography Use Notice

You hereby grant CRF and LHI the irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up license to reproduce, copy, display, perform, and/or otherwise use any photos, videos, and/or audio recordings taken of you by the Event’s designated vendor during the Event for promotional use (e.g., brochures, association publications, and web-based media such as blogs, websites, and newsletters). You hereby release and hold harmless CRF, LHI, and their agents and assigns from them all claims, demands, causes of action, and liability related to said use of the material.

Unauthorized Solicitation Policy

Any company or representative of a supplier who is not an exhibitor and is observed to be soliciting business in the Exhibit Hall or its aisles, in another company’s exhibit space, or any other area of the Event deemed inappropriate by CRF and/or LHI will be asked to leave immediately. Unauthorized solicitation in the Exhibit Hall or at any technical program is strictly prohibited.

Unsecured Items Policy

Personal belongings such as briefcases, backpacks, purses, coats, bookbags, laptops, tablets, mobile devices, etc., should not be left unattended in meeting rooms or public areas. These items are the responsibility of their owner and CRF and/or LHI will not be held responsible for their safekeeping should they become lost or stolen. Additionally, any unattended items may be subject to removal by security.

Scanning

You may be asked to have your badge scanned at exhibit booths and/or session rooms.  When your badge is scanned by demonstration supporters, exhibitors, and/or sponsors during the Event, you are opting in to receiving communications from that entity.  You will be subject to their communications and privacy policies and must opt out of said communications with them directly.

Applicable law

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Germany without regard to the principles of conflict of laws.

Privacy Policy

Please review our privacy policy as it contains important information about your privacy rights and is incorporated into these terms and conditions.
