Event Terms and Conditions

Event Terms and Conditions

These Event Terms and Conditions (the “Event Terms”) apply to all events hosted by Silicon Valley Barcode of Life, a project of Magic, Incorporated (“SVBOL”). As a condition of registration and participation, attendees, sponsors, volunteers, speakers, organizers, venue staff, media, exhibitors, vendors, and other guests (“Participant,” or “you”) are required to acknowledge and accept these Event Terms.

SVBOL reserves the right to change these Event Terms from time to time. Such changes will be effective immediately upon publication, on a going forward basis. You can access these Event Terms at any time at https://sites.google.com/view/siliconvalleybarcodeoflife/event-terms-and-conditions.

1. Registration and Admission

Participants may be required to register to attend events hosted by SVBOL (“Events”). Persons under the age of 14 are not allowed to attend our Events, unless accompanied by a parent, appointed guardian or chaperone. We reserve the right to accept or decline an individual's registration for any reason. Further, we reserve the right to prohibit entry or remove any Participant or other individual, whether registered or not, whose conduct is not in keeping with these Event Terms, and the character and purpose of SVBOL. To verify registered Participants, we might ask Participants to present proof of registration before you are admitted to an Event.

2. Expected Behavior

We invite all Participants to help us realize a safe and positive event experience for everyone and to promote the protection of biodiversity. Please be respectful of the wildlife around you and disturb their populations as little as possible while barcoding. All Participants are expected to: be considerate and collaborative; be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow Participants; follow instructions regarding your safety; and alert SVBOL if you notice a dangerous situation or another Participant or any wildlife in distress. If a Participant engages in behavior we, in our sole discretion, consider disruptive, destructive, or disrespectful, we may take any action we deem appropriate, including removing that Participant from the Event without a refund of any applicable registration fees.

3. Unsecured Items

Personal belongings should not be left unattended during our Events. SVBOL is not responsible for items left unattended, including any damage to or theft of your personal items.

4. Event Cancellation

SVBOL will have no liability to you on account of any loss or damage resulting from any delay, failure, or cancellation of our Events if such delay or failure is caused, in whole or in part, by acts of God, strikes, lockouts, riots, acts of war, earthquake, fire, explosions, or other events, occurrences, or causes beyond the control of SVBOL or our venues (each a “Force Majeure Event”). If SVBOL should have to cancel an Event for a reason other than a Force Majeure Event, any registration fees processed will be refunded to registrants. You will be responsible for cancellation of travel arrangements or housing reservations and the applicable fees.
