These are the terms (the “Agreement”) governing your attendance at and participation in the FASTer Way Conference (the “Event”). By registering for the Event, you agree to these terms, which form a binding legal contract between Tress Marketing Solutions, LLC (“TMS”) and the registered attendee or participant (“you”). If you are registering on behalf of another individual, it is your responsibility to ensure the person attending is aware of these terms and accepts them.
Section 1: Attendee Requirements
1.1 Admittance. Your registration entitles you to admittance to the Event. Any and all other costs, such as travel or lodging, associated with your attendance shall be borne solely by you.
1.2 Use of Likeness. By attending the Event you acknowledge and agree to grant TMS the right at the Event to record, film, photograph, or capture your likeness in any media now available or hereafter developed and to distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise disseminate, in perpetuity, such media without any further approval from you or any payment to you. This grant to TMS includes, but is not limited to, the right to edit such media, the right to use the media alone or together with other information, and the right to allow others to use or disseminate the media.
You hereby release, discharge, and agree to hold TMS and its affiliates harmless from, and agree not to sue for, any claim or cause of action, whether known or unknown, for libel, slander, invasion of right of privacy, unfair competition, false or misleading advertising, violation of a right to publicity or personality, or any other claim or cause of action, based upon or relating to the use of your likeness or the exercise of any of the rights referred to herein. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless TMS and its affiliates from and against any liabilities, losses, claims, demands, costs (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees) and expenses arising in connection with any breach or alleged breach of any of the above representations, warranties or agreement hereunder.

6.5 You agree to carefully consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and to take reasonable precautions before you choose to attend or participate at an Event. For example, you should ensure that you are in good physical health before engaging in any physical activity at the Event, and you should always drink responsibly if alcohol will be present at an Event.

6.6 You agree to indemnify and hold TMS, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to, related to, or connected with your attendance or conduct at an Event.
Section 7: Miscellaneous
TMS’s failure to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. TMS shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond TMS’s reasonable control. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with TMS’s prior written consent. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you acknowledge that you do not have any authority of any kind to bind TMS in any respect whatsoever.
