ACCEPTABLE USE AND ANTI-ABUSE POLICY
It is Asembia’s policy that all employees, volunteers, attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and any other participants are entitled to respectful treatment. Any form of abusive and unwanted communication, bullying, discrimination, harassment, sexual or otherwise, is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. This policy applies to all aspects of the Summit Virtual Experience.
While Asembia cannot guarantee a safe space, it is committed to providing a harassment- and discrimination-free experience for everyone at our events, an experience that embraces the richness of diversity where participants may exchange ideas, learn, network, and socialize in the company of colleagues in an environment of mutual respect. The Summit Virtual Experience and associated networking and programming tools should be used only in good faith for appropriate networking purposes on a selective basis.

Failure to follow the procedures prescribed in these Terms & Conditions, including the Acceptable Use and Anti-Abuse Policy.
LIABILITY AND INSURANCE

GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Notification of Complaints
You and Asembia agree that any and all Claims will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court. This includes any Claims that arose before you accepted these Terms & Conditions, regardless of whether prior versions of the Terms & Conditions required arbitration.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, where appropriate. The arbitrator must follow and enforce these Terms & Conditions.
Any and all proceedings to resolve Claims will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action. The arbitrator will have authority to decide issues as to the scope of this arbitration agreement and the arbitrability of Claims. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
Any arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules (AAA Rules) and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration shall be decided by one arbitrator jointly selected by the parties within 30 days of the filing of any Demand for Arbitration or, failing that, pursuant to the AAA Rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's Rules. The seat of any arbitration shall be Las Vegas, Nevada. To the extent permitted by law, these Terms and Conditions, the provision of our services, and any Claims shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the State of Nevada, without reference to conflicts of laws principles.
To begin an arbitration, you must send a Demand for Arbitration describing your Claims to the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing instructions are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. You must also provide a copy of your Demand for Arbitration to Asembia at 200 Park Ave., Suite 300, Florham Park, NJ 07932 and by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we request arbitration against you, we will give you notice at the email address or postal address you have provided.
You agree that the arbitration will be conducted in the English language. For claims under $25,000, the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses but will instead be conducted based solely on written submissions, unless you request an in-person or telephonic hearing or the arbitrator determines that an in-person or telephonic appearance is required. In the case of a hearing, the presumption shall be in favor of a telephonic hearing, unless the arbitrator determines that a party’s right to a fundamentally fair process would be impaired without an in-person hearing. In the case of an in-person hearing, the hearing shall be conducted in a mutually convenient location. Asembia will ordinarily request that the hearing be held in [insert city, New Jersey]. You may petition the arbitrator to select an alternative location for the hearing. The arbitrator’s selection of a hearing location shall be final and binding. The arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor Asembia may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, including any communications or documents produced or exchanged therein, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award.
This arbitration agreement shall be governed by and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law. An arbitration decision may be confirmed by any court with competent jurisdiction.
Subject to the limitations set out in these Terms and Conditions and to the extent permitted by law, Asembia will only be liable for direct damages actually suffered, paid, or incurred by you due to an attributable shortcoming of our obligations in respect to our services, up to an aggregate amount of the aggregate cost of your registration.
However and to the extent permitted by law, neither we nor any of our officers, directors, employees, representatives, subsidiaries, agents or affiliates will be liable for anything other than the amount of registration fees you paid, including but not limited to any punitive, special, indirect, or consequential loss or damages, any loss of production, loss of profit, loss of revenue, loss of contract, loss of or damage to goodwill or reputation, loss of claim, any (direct, indirect, consequential, or punitive) damages, losses, or costs suffered, incurred, or paid by you, pursuant to, arising out of or in connection with the use, inability to use, or delay of the virtual systems, programs and programming provided in connection with the Summit Virtual Experience.
Our performance of this Agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process, and nothing contained in these Terms & Conditions limits our right to comply with law enforcement or other governmental or legal requests or requirements relating to your use of the Summit Virtual Experience or information provided to or gathered by us with respect to such use.
If any part of these Terms & Conditions is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired. Our failure or delay in enforcing any provision of these Terms and Conditions at any time does not waive our right to enforce the same or any other provision(s) hereof in the future.
Nothing in Terms & Conditions shall be read to create any legal rights that do not otherwise exist under the law or constitute any waiver of any personal jurisdiction defense, nor shall this provision give you the right to pursue any claim for relief that is not cognizable under the law. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
ALL CONTENT PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE VIRTUAL SUMMIT EXPERIENCE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, VIRTUAL CONTENT, IS MADE AVAILABLE AS IS AND ASEMBIA DOES NOT OFFER ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OR REPRESENT THAT THE CONTENT WILL BE ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR ERROR-FREE. Asembia is not liable for the usage of, implementation of, impact from, content of or communication of the ideas presented in any Virtual Content.
