KWRI EVENT PARTICIPANT GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Please read these Terms and Conditions (the Agreement) carefully. This Agreement is between you and Keller Williams Realty, Inc. (“KWRI” “we” or “us”).

When you register for either a virtual or in-person event (Event), by clicking, or tapping any button or box marked “accept,” “agree” or “OK” (or a similar term), or purchasing a membership, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and any changes to it. References to “you” and “your” in this Agreement mean you and/or the organization you represent.

This Agreement contains a mandatory arbitration provision that, as described below, requires use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than by jury trials or any other court proceedings, or class actions or class arbitrations.

Use of Likeness, RFID, Browsing.

I grant KWRI permission to interview me during the event and use my likeness in photographs or videos in any KWRI publications or media (including websites), whether now known or hereafter existing, in perpetuity. I will make no monetary or other claim against KWRI for such use. KWRI may use the photographs or videos with or without accompanying text identifying me by name. I waive the right to inspect or approve the finished product in which my interview or likeness appears.

KWRI may provide attendees with smart badges (containing RFID) for certain events. In these instances, this technology will monitor attendee activity in specified locations within the event venue. By attending the event and wearing a smart badge, each attendee is providing consent to RFID tracking or facial recognition services at the event.

To enhance and enrich virtual events experience, I understand and agree that KWRI may monitor or record my on-line (web browsing) activity occurring on those web sites provided to me by KWRI (or KWRI’s third-party provider) for such event. I agree that KWRI may use such information for the provision of the event, additional related content, and for analytics.  Such information gathering is subject to KWRI’s privacy policy found at https://www.kw.com/kw/privacypolicy.

Telecommunications Equipment.

For virtual Events, you must provide at your cost and expense, any necessary telecommunications, computing equipment, subscriptions, licenses, or services that may be required to participate in the Event (Telecommunications).

In no event will KWRI be liable to you for any direct damages (including health related injury or loss and telecommunications (including internet)), lost profits, revenues, or indirect, special, incidental, consequential, cover or punitive damages. The limitations in this section apply regardless of whether either party has advance notice of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing disclaimer will not apply to the extent prohibited by law.

Each Party shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the other party and its affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns from and against all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, actions, judgments, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses or whatever kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or resulting from a third-party claim for (a) infringement or misappropriation of any third party intellectual property or other proprietary rights in the use of the services provided under this agreement; (b) physical bodily injury, death of any person, or damage to real or tangible, personal property resulting from the party’s act or omission; or (c) the party’s breach of any representation, warranty, or obligation under this agreement.

Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, any controversy or claim arising out of or related to this Agreement will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury. You agree that any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You agree that we and you are each waiving the right to trial by a jury, and you are agreeing to give up any legal right you may have to participate in a class arbitration or class action.

In the event the Commercial Rules conflict with any provision of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement will control. A Party will initiate an arbitration under this Agreement by providing notice and a demand for arbitration to the other party according to the Commercial Rules.
