Participant Conduct & Responsibilities
Proprietor requires all Participants to be respectful and professional to our staff, location hosts, speakers, and other attendees and their guests or families throughout the Workshop, even during non-scheduled downtime and breaks. Proprietor reserves the right to ask Participant and/or their guests to leave the Facility immediately should they be deemed rude, uncooperative, unprofessional, intoxicated, or in possession of alcohol or any illegal substance. In such case, the Participant’s tuition/fees for the Workshop will not be reimbursed under any circumstances. Liability Waiver While we take every possible measure to ensure Participant safety at the Workshop, we cannot control everything. For this reason, Participant is legally responsible for their safety and behavior and agrees to, and is held legally liable to, the following statements: I, the willing Participant of the Workshop, hereby accept all risk to my health and of my injury or death that may result from participating in the Workshop and I hereby release Proprietor, 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 Workshop, whether caused by negligence of the Proprietor, his officers, employees, representatives, or otherwise. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Proprietor 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 international act or omission while attending and participating in the Workshop. Under no circumstances will Proprietor or his assigns be held liable for my injury or death or any loss or damage of my personal belongings resulting from my participation in the Workshop. Should I require emergency medical treatment as a result of an accident or illness arising during my attendance and participation in the Workshop, 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 Proprietor verbally and in writing if I am at any time injured prior to, during, or after the Workshop in my travels or attendance, or if I have medical conditions about which emergency medical personnel should be informed; however, I understand that Proprietor 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 Workshop that I will notify the Proprietor and that the Proprietor retains the right to ask that I not participate in portions of or the entirety of the Workshop. I further agree to pay for all damages to the Facility of the Workshop caused by my or my guests’ negligent, reckless, or willful actions, and recognize that the Proprietor retains the right to dismiss me or my guests on the basis of these actions.

Confidentiality and Non-Compete
The Participant hereby understands that the tools, processes, strategies, materials, and information presented in the Workshop are confidential, copyrighted, and proprietary to the Proprietor and agrees not to record, duplicate, distribute, report on, teach or train from the Workshop materials in any manner whatsoever without the express written permission of the Proprietor. Participants may not use any device to video, photograph, or record any aspect of the Workshop. Participants who do not abide by this policy will be asked to destroy any recorded materials and may be asked to leave the Workshop and will not be eligible for a refund. Participants may not report on any of the concepts taught at the event, including providing a summary or review of the event on/in any media outlets, blogs, websites, or stages without written permission from Proprietor. Any unauthorized use or distribution of the proprietary concepts, materials, and intellectual property by the Participant or his/her representatives is prohibited and Proprietor will pursue legal action and full damages if these terms are violated in order to protect his rights.
During the Workshop, we will discuss several adult topics relating to personal and professional growth. The Proprietor does not allow anyone under the age of eighteen (18) into the Workshop given the adult topic and content. Participants who are uncomfortable with such topics should not attend the Workshop and will not receive a refund should they request one based on an offense to such content under any circumstances.
By participating in the Workshop, Participant understands that portions of the Workshop’s live events may be recorded in video and audio and/or captured in still and/or digital photographs. Participant agrees that the Proprietor and his assigns have the right and permission to use such recordings and photographs should they include Participant’s name, likeness, voice, biographical details, testimonial, or photograph for marketing, advertising or any other purpose in any media or format, online and/or offline, now or hereafter without further compensation, permission, or notification to the Participant. Participant understands and agrees that all recordings from the Proprietor’s events are the exclusive rights of the Proprietor and Participant does not ask for or expect compensation for the use of recordings or photographs in which Participant appears of speaks. Proprietor owns all rights to any audio, video, and/or photograph captured during the Proprietor’s Workshop or at any time of the Proprietor’s other live events. Participant is not permitted, under any circumstances, to film, record or capture audio or video footage during the Workshop. Participants who violate this may be asked to delete the footage, discontinue the use of the device (such as a recording pen) and/or may be removed from the Workshop without refund.
Once Participant registers for the Workshop, extensive arrangements and investments are made by the Proprietor while anticipating their tuition and attendance. In the case of their cancellation, the Proprietor incurs significant administration hassles, expenses, and loss of business. Given this fact, we do not accept cancellations or issue refunds beginning 14 days before the Workshop, under any circumstances. If Participants cancel before 14 days prior to the start of the Workshop, they will receive a full refund.
Proprietor reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any program, workshop or event. In the event that Proprietor is forced to do so, Participant will receive a full refund or the opportunity to transfer their registration to the same course on another date. Proprietor is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses, including travel and accommodation costs incurred by Participant as a result of cancellation. Proprietor will give a minimum of two weeks notice when cancelling an event whenever possible, however, Proprietor cannot be held liable when cancellation of an event with less than two weeks notice becomes necessary due to force majeure.
