Terms and Conditions

CHIP Seattle 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). 

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations received in writing before Tuesday, June 25, 2019 (by 11:59 PM ET), will receive a full refund less a $100 administrative fee. Cancellations received between Wednesday, June 26, and Tuesday, July 23, 2019 (by 11:59 PM ET), will be refunded 50% of the registration fee. No refunds will be processed after Wednesday, July 24, 2019 (12:00 AM ET).

Wire Payments

Acceptable forms of payments are credit card and US check. If you would like to pay by wire, a mandatory $75 wire processing fee will automatically be added to your total. 

Identification at Registration

Attendees are asked to present a Photo ID at registration in order to collect registration materials. Unless you are an exhibitor or group who has arranged for an advance group pick-up of badges, individuals may only collect their own individual registration. This procedure is in place to protect registration materials from getting lost and to allow CRF to monitor accurate attendance. Registration materials will not be provided without a valid Photo ID.

Prohibition on Badge Swapping, Sharing, or Lending

Each person attending a Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) sponsored/managed meeting, symposia, program, event, etc, (“Event”) will be issued an Event-specific badge bearing that person’s name and she or he must have the badge bearing that person’s name in her or his possession at all times while on the premises at which the Event is taking place.  THE SWAPPING, SHARING, OR LENDING OF AN EVENT BADGE TO ANY OTHER PERSON IS STRICLY PROHIBITED.  Anyone found to be wearing a badge that does not bear that person’s 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 confiscated badges.

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 Event.  Additionally, in instances where an exhibiting company is found to have violated this policy, the exhibiting company will be penalized with a reduction in priority points.  In cases where CRF is 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 charged the full cost of the additional registration.  All decisions regarding compliance with or violation of this policy will be made by CRF in CRF’s sole and exclusive discretion.

Limitation of Liability

By registering, you agree to release and hold harmless CRF, 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

CRF promotes the free interchange and rapid dissemination of educational content from our meetings. The slides from CRF-sponsored courses and symposia are immediately posted on TCTMD.com to facilitate scientific discourse and enhance patient care. Non-flash photography and audio or video recording using hand-held equipment, for strictly personal, educational, and/or social use, are permitted at all CRF meetings 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 live streaming of entire sessions or live cases (the latter to respect patient privacy), and use of any CRF course content for commercial purposes, is strictly prohibited. Exhibitors may film, record, or photograph activities at their own booth for promotional purposes only upon prior written consent of CRF.

Post-Event Photography Use Notice

You hereby grant CRF irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully-paid up license to reproduce, copy, display, perform, or otherwise use any photos, videos or audio recordings taken of you by the Event’s designated vendor during the Event for promotional use (ie, brochures, association publications, and web based media such as blogs, websites, and e-newsletters). You hereby release and hold harmless CRF and their agents and assigns from 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, in another company’s exhibit space, in the aisles of the exhibit hall, or any other area of the Event deemed inappropriate by CRF, will be asked to leave immediately. Unauthorized solicitation in the exhibit hall or technical program is strictly prohibited.

Unsecured Items Policy

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

Scanning

You may be asked to have your badge scanned either at exhibit booths and/or at 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 policy and must op-out with them directly.
