TERMS, DISCLAIMERS AND CONDITIONS

FOR ALL DIGITAL BOOKKEEPER ASSOCIATION EVENTS

Please carefully read the following terms and conditions relating to your participation in any BKX Events which are conducted by Digital Bookkeeper Association, LLC (DBA.)

These terms and conditions are relevant to all DBA Events including but not limited to BKX. For the purposes of this site, and since registrants may register for only one event at a time, all Events will be referred to from here forward in the singular tense as simply the “Event.”

By registering for the Event at any one of our locations (“Hotel”), you (the “Attendee”) signify your acceptance of and obligation to these terms and conditions. If you have objections to the following Terms and Conditions, you should not register for or attend the Event.

Attendee Conduct

DBA requires all Attendees to be respectful and professional to our staff, location hosts, speakers, and other attendees and their guests or families throughout the Event, even during non-scheduled downtime and breaks. DBA reserves the right to ask Attendee to leave the conference room and Hotel immediately should they be deemed rude, uncooperative, unprofessional, intoxicated or in possession of alcohol or any illegal substance. In such case, the Attendee’s fees for the Event will not be reimbursed under any circumstances and they will not receive any future products, services or correspondence from DBA. 

Liability Waiver

While we take every possible measure to ensure Attendee safety at the Event, we can not control everything. For this reason, Attendee is legally responsible for their safety and behavior and agrees to, and is held legally liable to, the following statements:

I, the willing Attendee of the Event, hereby accept all risk to my health and of my injury or death that may result from participating in the Event and I hereby release DBA, and their officers, employees, interns, contractors, sponsors and representatives from any and all liability to me, my personal representatives, estate, heirs, next of kin, and assigns for any and all claims and causes of action for loss of or damage to my property and for any and all illness or injury to my person, including my death, that may result from or occur during my participation at the Event, whether caused by negligence of the DBA, its governing board, officers, employees, or representatives, or otherwise. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless DBA and any third-party company from liability for the injury or death of any person(s) and damage to property that may result from my negligent or intentional act or omission while attending and participating in the Event. Under no circumstances will DBA or their assigns be held liable for my injury or death or any loss or damage of my personal belongings resulting from my participation in the Event. Should I require emergency medical treatment as a result of accident or illness arising during my attendance and participation in the Event, I consent to such treatment. I acknowledge and I agree to be financially responsible for any medical or legal bills that may be incurred as a result of emergency medical treatment. I will notify DBA verbally and in writing if I am at any time injured prior to, during, or after the Event in my travels or attendance, or if I have medical conditions about which emergency medical personnel should be informed; however, I understand that DBA is not legally obligated to act on that information in any way or to providing any medical service whatsoever to me. I agree that if I have any medical or psychological conditions that may hamper me from fully and healthfully participating in the Event that I will notify the DBA and that the DBA retains the right to ask that I not participate in portions of or the entirety of the Event.

Liability Disclaimer: No Professional Advice

The information contained in or made available by the DBA, or any third-party through the Event or their websites or services cannot replace or substitute for the services of trained professionals in any field, including, but not limited to, mental, financial, medical, psychological, or legal fields. DBA does not offer any professional personal, medical, financial or legal advice and none of the information contained in the Event should be confused as such advice. Neither DBA nor their assigns, sponsors, speakers, partners, contractors or any of their affiliates will be liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, special, exemplary or other damages to the Attendee or the Attendee’s business, including economic loss, that may result from participation in the Event or from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials, information, or strategies communicated through the Event or any products or services provided pursuant to the Event, even if advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, will DBA be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from Attendee’s participation in the Event. To be clear: You, the Attendee, alone are responsible and accountable for your decisions, actions and results in life, and by your participation in our Event, you agree not to attempt to hold us, the DBA, liable for any decisions, actions or results that you make or experience in business or in life due to your participation in this Event at any time, under any circumstance.

Confidentiality and Non-Compete

Attendee hereby understands that the tools, processes, strategies, materials and information presented in the Event are confidential, copyrighted, and proprietary to the DBA and agrees not to record, duplicate, distribute, summarize, teach or train from the Event materials in any manner whatsoever without the express written permission of DBA. Any unauthorized use or distribution of these proprietary concepts, materials, and intellectual property by you or your representatives is prohibited and DBA will pursue legal action and full damages if these terms are violated in order to protect its rights.

Youth Policy

Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to attend.

Adult Language/Content

During our Event, we will discuss several adult topics relating to personal and professional growth. We will also occasionally use adult or profane language to emphasize a point or connect with or surprise the audience (though we will never be lewd, and we will always use tact and discretion in doing so).

Participants who are uncomfortable with such topics or language should not attend the Event.

Attendee understands and agrees that all recordings from the DBA’s events are the exclusive rights of the DBA and Attendee does not ask for or expect compensation for the use of recordings or photographs in which Attendee appears or speaks. DBA owns all rights of any audio, video, and/or photograph captured during the DBA’s Event or at any of the DBA’s other live events.
