Event Terms and Conditions

Updated February 1, 2024

These Event Terms and Conditions (these “Terms and Conditions”) set forth the terms and conditions governing certain live and virtual events (each an “Event” and collectively, the “Events”) put on and managed by CyberRisk Alliance, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“CRA”) from time to time. Capitalized terms used in these Terms and Conditions but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to such terms in the Sponsorship Agreement or the Statement of Work entered into by and between CRA and the sponsor/client named therein (the “Client”)(the “Agreement”). By executing and delivering the Agreement to CRA, Client is expressly agreeing to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. The Terms of Service are adopted and incorporated herein.

  1. Benefits of Event Sponsorship; Leads.
  1. Subject to the satisfaction of Client’s obligations set forth in the Agreement and these Terms and Conditions, CRA will provide Client with the benefits associated with the sponsorship level designated in the  Agreement, such benefits to be consistent with the prospectus and compliance with local laws associated with the Event and as determined by CRA from time to time, in its sole discretion. CRA does not make, and specifically disclaims, any representations or warranties regarding (a) the success or failure of such sponsorship opportunity for the Sponsor, and/or (b) the occurrence of an Event on the particular Event Date set forth in the Agreement. By executing the Agreement, Client acknowledges that all Event Dates are subject to change in the discretion of CRA.
  3. If Leads (defined herein) are included as a benefit associated with Client’s sponsorship level designated in the Agreement, then CRA will provide the specified Leads to Client consistent with this Section 1 and the Agreement. Unless otherwise provided in the  Agreement, (A) a “Lead” shall mean an individual demand-generation activity that occurs on any demand-generation product (including, but not limited to Virtual      Conferences, webcasts, content syndication of client or CRA-generated content); and (B) a “Qualified Lead” means a registrant that meets the Client’s filter criteria and who provides consent to share their complete contact data (including first and last name, email address, company name (if applicable), phone number, city, state/province, postal code and country, industry, job title and company size) to CRA. Each demand-generation action taken by an individual shall be deemed a separate Lead to the extent such action could not be deemed an identical activity. Qualified Leads shall be reviewed through CRA’s quality assurance process prior to delivery of the Qualified Lead to Client. CRA will use best efforts to fulfill the lead guarantee set forth in the Agreement (if any). Qualified Leads will be delivered to Client in the form of a Lead report.  Client shall have five (5) business  days to review the applicable Lead report and determine whether to reject  any such Leads. Client may only reject Leads set forth in a report for the following reasons: (1) the Qualified Lead fails to materially meet the Client’s selected criteria, or (2) the contact information for such Qualified Lead is materially inaccurate; provided, that receipt of an “opt out” request following delivery of the Lead report shall not  constitute a material inaccuracy justifying the rejection of such Lead. If Client determines that any Qualified Lead meets either of the aforementioned reasons for rejection, Client shall provide notice of Client’s  rejection of any such Leads; provided, that Client may not reject more than 10% of the Leads provided by CRA to Client. CRA shall have ten (10) business days to review the rejected Leads and, if applicable, provide additional Qualified Leads to Client within eight (8) weeks following the Event Date.
  1. Event Cancellation or Reschedule. Client expressly acknowledges and agrees that Event Date(s) are subject to change in CRA’s sole discretion. If CRA changes the Event Date or cancels any Event, for any reason, then CRA shall promptly notify Client in writing of the change, cancellation, or new Event Date. In the event of a cancellation or rescheduled Event, Client shall be permitted to transfer the Fees already paid in relation to such cancelled or rescheduled Event to another Event of equal value: (a) which is scheduled to occur within one (1) year from the date of the cancelled or rescheduled Event, or (b) if the Event was originally scheduled to occur in December, then the Client may only transfer the Fees to an Event to occur in the following Q1 of CRA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client must provide such notice of intent to transfer such Fees to another Event within fourteen (14) days of the date Client receives notice of reschedule or cancellation. Failure to provide notice within the aforementioned timeframe shall result in forfeiture of the applicable Fees. Client shall not be entitled to a refund in any circumstance unless expressly permitted by CRA.
  2. License Grants. Client hereby grants CRA (and its affiliates) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right and license to use the Client’s logo(s) (the “Marks”) as necessary to provide the sponsorship level benefits as provided in the  Agreement,  including but not limited to (a) in its advertising, marketing, and promotional materials in all formats and media, including on its website, mobile apps, and social marketing pages on third-party websites and mobile apps, to identify and promote its association with and its status as a Client of the Event(s); (b) on Event collateral and materials that CRA is obligated or otherwise permitted to create and distribute at or in connection with this or future Event(s); and (c) in accordance with the Client’s then-current trademark usage guidelines as shared with CRA. All uses of a party’s Marks, and all goodwill associated therewith, shall inure solely to the benefit of such party, and each party shall retain all right, title, and interest in and to its Marks.
