These are the terms and conditions (the “Terms”) governing the use of the hosting platform and related services (the “Platform”) and your participation in any virtual event, meeting, fair, virtual booth, show, seminar or conference (the “Virtual Event”) owned and operated by MulticityTV OÜ (registry code: 16067851) (the “MCTV”). By registering for the Virtual Event, you agree to these Terms, which form a binding legal contract between the Virtual Event owner and host, (MCTV) and the registered attendee, uploader of content or participant (“you” or “Participant”). If you are registering on behalf of another individual, it is your responsibility to ensure the person participating is aware of these Terms and accepts them. By completing the registration on behalf of another individual you are warranting that you have their permission to complete the registration on their behalf and have made the Participant aware of these terms and that they have accepted these terms.
1 Participant Requirements
1.1 Access. Your registration entitles you to access the Virtual Event for which you have registered. Any and all other costs associated with your attendance shall be borne solely by you, and MCTV shall have no liability for such costs.
1.2 Use of Likeness. By participating in the Virtual Event, you acknowledge and agree to grant MCTV the right at the Virtual Event to record, film, live stream, photograph, or capture your likeness in any media now available or hereafter developed and to distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise globally to disseminate, in perpetuity, such media without any further approval from you or any payment to you. This grant to MCTV 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.
1.3 Virtual Event Content. You acknowledge and agree that MCTV, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to change any and all aspects of the Virtual Event, including but not limited to, the Virtual Event name, themes, content, program, speakers, performers, hosts, moderators, venue and time. Virtual Event content is recorded by MCTV and will be accessible to registrants.
2 Prohibited Conduct
2.1 Limitations on Use. By registering for a MCTV Virtual Event you agree not to sell, trade, transfer, or share your complimentary access link and/or code, unless such transfer is granted by MCTV. If MCTV determines that you have violated this policy, MCTV may cancel your access, retain any payments made by you, report you to law enforcement authorities, and ban you from future Virtual Events.
2.2 Disruptive Conduct. You acknowledge and agree that MCTV reserves the right to remove you from the Virtual Event if MCTV, in its sole discretion, determines that your participation or behaviour create a disruption or hinder the Virtual Event or the enjoyment of the Virtual Event content by other Participants.
2.3 Recording, Live Streaming, and Videotaping. Participants may not record or broadcast audio or video of sessions at Virtual Events for commercial use and retransmission of the content on other Platforms than MCTV’s selected ones.
2.4 Unethical/Non-Compliant Business Practices. MCTV reserves the right to deny participation to anyone who engages in or is reputed to engage in unethical or non-compliant business practices.

3 Fees and Registration
3.1 Payment. The payment of the applicable fee for the Virtual Event is due upon registration. If such payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, MCTV may refuse to allow you to access the Virtual Event and shall have no liability in that regard.
3.2 Taxes. The fees may be subject to value added tax or other taxes and duties which, if applicable, will be charged to you in addition to the fees.
4 Cancellation and Quality Assurance
4.1 MCTV strives to provide you with the most productive and effective event experience possible. As speakers are confirmed months before the Virtual Event, some speaker changes or topic changes may occur in the program. MCTV is not responsible for speaker changes but will work to ensure a comparable speaker is located to participate in the program.
4.2 In any other case, cancellations are subject to the entire Virtual Event registration fee. All sales are final. No payments will be refunded or refundable. Please note that if you do not cancel and do not access the Virtual Event, you are still responsible for payment. In no event shall the MCTV be obligated to refund all of the registration fee.
4.3 If MCTV is prevented from carrying out its obligations as it pertains to the Virtual Event you registered for as a result of any cause beyond its control, or such Virtual Event cannot be virtually conducted because of a software or issue with the Platform or due to a force majeure event defined on the basis of the Estonian Law of Obligations Act, MCTV shall have the right to immediately terminate the affected Virtual Event without liability and shall be relieved of its obligations to Registrant. If the affected Virtual Event is terminated due to a Force Majeure occurrence before the first day of the Virtual Event, then MCTV will reschedule the affected Virtual Event and your registration fee will be applied to the rescheduled Virtual Event.
5 Virtual Event Registration Confirmation
5.1 Once you have completed your registration, you will receive your registration confirmation by email. Please ensure that your valid email is entered correctly on the registration form. Be sure to check your junk email box too in case any of your Virtual Event email(s) are caught by spam filters.

6 Your Privacy Is Important to Us
7 Intellectual Property
7.1 All intellectual property rights in and to the Virtual Event, the Virtual Event content, the hosting platform and all materials distributed at or in connection with the Virtual Event are owned by MCTV, or the Virtual Event sponsors, exhibitors or speakers presenting at the Virtual Event. You may not use or reproduce or allow anyone to use or reproduce any trademarks or other trade names appearing at the Virtual Event, in any Virtual Event content or in any materials distributed at or in connection with the Virtual Event for any reason without the prior written permission of MCTV or respective right holder.
7.2. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, by uploading, submitting, posting, or displaying any information, videos, or other media (together referred to as ”Content”) on or through the Platform, you hereby irrevocably assign and transfer to MCTV, free of charge, all your proprietary rights and interest that you may have to the Content, including copyrights to any works within the meaning of copyright laws.
To the extent that any of the rights pertaining to the Content cannot be assigned (e.g. moral rights), you hereby grant us, free of charge, the exclusive, perpetual and irrevocable right to use all such rights (exclusive global licence) for the entire period of legal protection thereof.
The rights in this section shall be deemed to be transferred to MCTV retroactively, as of the moment of creation of such Content by you.
7.3. So long as you comply with these Terms, we give you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, and non-assignable license to access and use our hosting services of the platform. We can terminate this license by giving you notice with a reasonable period in advance.
7.4. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to vest in you any legal or beneficial right in or to any trademarks or other intellectual property rights owned or used under license by MCTV or any of its affiliates, nor do these Terms grant to you any right or license to any other intellectual property rights of MCTV or its affiliates, all of which shall at all times remain the exclusive property of MCTTV and its affiliates.
7.5. MCTV does not host some of the content displayed on our services. Users have the ability to post content that is actually hosted by a third party but is embedded in our pages (an “Embed”). When you interact with an Embed, it can send information about your interaction to the hosting third party just as if you were visiting the third party’s site directly. For example, when you load a content with a YouTube video Embed and watch the video, YouTube receives information about your activity, such as your IP address and how much of the video you watch. MCTV does not control what information third parties collect through Embeds or what they do with the information.
8 Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability
8.1 MCTV gives no warranties in respect of any aspect of the Virtual Event or any materials related thereto or offered at the Virtual Event and, to the fullest extent possible under the laws governing these Terms, disclaims all implied warranties, including but not limited to warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, timeliness, and merchantability. The Virtual Event is provided on an “as-is” basis. The views, opinions, and positions expressed by the speakers, attendees, sponsors or exhibitors at the Virtual Event are theirs alone and do not necessarily reflect the views, opinions, or positions of MCTV or any employee thereof. Virtual Event makes no representations as to accuracy, completeness, timeliness, suitability, or validity of any information presented by speakers, attendees, exhibitors or sponsors at a MCTV Virtual Event and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its display or use. MCTV does not endorse, and expressly disclaims all liability relating to, any of the products or services provided by speakers, attendees, or sponsors.
8.2 Except as required by law, neither MCTV nor its affiliates shall be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential costs, damages or losses arising directly or indirectly from the Virtual Event or other aspect related thereto or in connection with these Terms.
8.3 The maximum aggregate liability of Virtual Event for any claim in any way connected with, or arising from, the Virtual Event or these Terms, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise (including any negligent act or omission), shall be limited to the amount paid by you to MCTV under these Terms.
Virtual Event’s failure to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. MCTV shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond MCTV reasonable control. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. These Terms are governed by the laws of the Republic of Estonia and the parties shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Estonian courts. If MCTV substantially prevails in an action brought under these Terms, it is entitled to recover from you its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. You agree that these Terms constitute a binding agreement between MCTV and you which 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 concluding this agreement and you acknowledge that you do not have any authority of any kind to bind MCTV in any respect whatsoever.

The Organizer reserves the right to charge interest on all overdue amounts under these Terms.
If the use of the Platform for the purpose of a Virtual Exhibition shall become impossible because of a software issue or if the holding of the Virtual Exhibition or the performance of any of the provisions of these Terms are interfered with by virtue of any force majeure event, these Terms, the agreement they constitute and/or the Virtual Exhibition (or any part thereof), may be terminated or cancelled by the Organizer without the Organizer being liable in damages or otherwise to the Exhibitor. The Organizer shall also not be responsible for delays, claims, demands, damages, losses, increased costs, liabilities, changes, actions, expenses or any other unfavourable direct or indirect, consequential or otherwise conditions arising by virtue of any cause not within the control of the Organizer. Upon termination or cancellation of the agreement, the Organizer shall not be liable to the Exhibitor other than for a refund of the contract price paid by the Exhibitor prorated on the basis of the number of exhibition days remaining.
