TOS-Con Terms and Conditions


TOS-Con 2018 is a private event hosted by The Objective Standard (TOS), also known as Glen Allen Press, LLC.

TOS reserves the right to refuse registration or entrance to anyone, and the right to remove anyone from the conference for any reason. By participating, you agree to the Terms and Conditions. TOS reserves the right to modify these terms at any time.

Photographs and/or audio/video recordings taken at TOS-Con by TOS, or others on behalf of TOS, may include a participant’s image, name, voice and/or likeness. By attending and/or participating in the conference, you grant TOS permission to use, and to sublicense to third-parties, your photograph, image, likeness, voice, and statements for any purpose, including but not limited to commercial purposes, without compensation or credit, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised.

In no event shall TOS be liable to any participant, or any other person or entity for any personal injury or damages to property, damages for loss of business profits or other pecuniary loss, including any direct, consequential, incidental, special, punitive or similar damages, arising out of participation in the conference events, even if TOS has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Except as may be expressly set forth in these terms, participant’s participation in the events, and all services and products provided in connection with the events, are provided “as is” without any warranty of any kind, and no other warranties, whether express, implied, or otherwise, are made with respect to the same, including any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or safety, or any warranties that may arise from course of dealing. TOS expressly disclaims any warranties not expressly stated herein.

Each Participant (each an “Indemnifying Party”) agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold TOS and its officers, employees, volunteers, contractors, suppliers, and representatives harmless from and against any and all claims, demands and all other liabilities, including, but not limited to, costs and attorneys’ fees, made by any third party arising out of or in connection with the Indemnifying Party’s use of the registration(s) or any violation of the Terms by the Indemnifying Party.

The Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Virginia, without regard to its principles of conflicts of laws. Each Participant and TOS hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States federal and state courts located in Richmond, Virginia and agrees that any such court will be the proper forum for the determination of any dispute arising hereunder.

TOS reserves the right to make changes to the Terms at any time without notice to each Participant, so please check back and review the Terms from time to time. In the event that any term or provision of the Terms shall be deemed invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such term or provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining term or provision.

To be considered for posting, a comment must be civil, substantive, on topic, and no longer than 400 words. Ad hominem attacks, arguments from intimidation, misrepresentations, off-topic comments, and comments that ignore relevant points made in the article will be deleted.
