BusyConf offers Users the ability to purchase tickets to conferences, conventions, and other events. These events are not provided by BusyConf. We also offer event organizers the opportunity to promote their events on the Site.

Your charge will be authorized at the time you order. You agree to provide us with truthful and accurate contact and billing information when you place an order with us. Because the events are provided by third parties and not Us, BusyConf does not offer refunds and all transactions are final when completed on the Site.

WE, OUR AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS PROVIDE OUR SITE AND SERVICES “AS IS” AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY. WE, OUR AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
IN ADDITION, WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES THAT THE SITE OR THE SERVICES OFFERED WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE, ACCESSIBLE, UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE OR OPERATE WITHOUT ERROR; THAT THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS OR PRODUCTS INCLUDED ON THE SITE WILL BE AS REPRESENTED BY PROVIDERS OR THAT PROVIDERS WILL PERFORM AS PROMISED; ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OR DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE; AND ANY OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, RIGHT, CLAIM OR REMEDY IN TORT, WHETHER OR NOT ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF BUSYCONF. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, WE DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL SUCH WARRANTIES.
BECAUSE BUSYCONF IS, IN PART, A VENUE FOR INTERACTIONS BETWEEN USERS AND EVENT ORGANIZERS, IF A DISPUTE ARISES BETWEEN ONE OR MORE USERS AND/OR EVENT ORGANIZERS, EACH OF YOU AGREES TO RELEASE BUSYCONF, OUR AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES. YOU WAIVE THE PROTECTIONS AFFORDED BY CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542, WHICH SAYS: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THIS WAIVER IS AN ESSENTIAL AND MATERIAL TERM OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND THAT WITHOUT SUCH WAIVER, THIS AGREEMENT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ENTERED INTO BY BUSYCONF.
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE, OUR AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS, BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CLAIMS OF NEGLIGENCE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT.
You agree to indemnify and hold us and our agents, employees, contractors and suppliers, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement or the documents it incorporates by reference, your event or an event you may attend, your violation of any law or the rights of a third party, or any claim or demand alleging such breach or violation.
You agree that you will provide us with thirty (30) days’ notice of a claim asserted against us. We will then elect within thirty 30 days of receipt of such notice, and also again at our option within ten (10) days of service on us of any legal process initiating an arbitration or litigation, whether to arbitrate the controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement and/or your use of the Site. Any such arbitration will be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. Each such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be conducted in Loudoun County, Virginia, USA, and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. We may elect the remedy of resolving the dispute outside of binding arbitration by declining to initiate or participate in such arbitration. If such an election of remedy is made, either expressly or by failure to elect to proceed with arbitration, and under every other circumstance in which legal action is initiated, the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for a legal action shall be in the state or federal courts located in Loudoun County, Virginia, USA.

All notices and other communications provided for herein shall be in writing and delivered to each party at the address set forth in this document, or as updated from time to time by the parties in writing. The parties to this Agreement are independent entities and an agency, joint venture, partnership, fiduciary relationship, or any other relationship other than in the nature of independent contractor, shall not arise from this Agreement, and no party has the right or authority to act for, or on behalf of, the other party.
