Code of Conduct
Unite Attendance and Participation Policy
As a registered attendee, speaker, sponsor or participant at Shopify’s 2018 Unite Conference and Conference-related events you agree to follow the terms of this Attendance and Participation Policy. We appreciate your cooperation to help ensure a safe environment for all Conference participants.
- Your credit card will not be charged and you will not receive your ticket until your registration has been approved by Shopify.
- Fees are due at the time your registration is approved. If payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, Shopify may refuse to admit you. Fees may be subject sales tax, value added tax, or other taxes and duties, which, if applicable, will be charged to you in addition to the fees.
- Your ticket entitles you to admittance to the Conference and Conference-related events only. All other costs associated with attendance (e.g., travel and accommodation expenses) are your responsibility, and Shopify will have no liability for these costs.
- You understand and agree that tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. Tickets cannot be sold, resold, bartered, auctioned, or transferred in any way. You are responsible for choosing to submit a registration form and Shopify will not be liable for any errors in submission, payment or ticket processing.
- All determinations of special rates and discounts are in the sole discretion of Shopify. Even if you meet the definition and requirements for a discount or special rate, Shopify reserves the right to not provide you any special rate.
- Shopify may change, substitute or cancel any aspect of the Conference, including the Conference name, themes, content, program, speakers, moderators, venue and time. All intellectual property rights in and to the Conference, the Conference content, and all materials distributed at or in connection with the Conference are owned by Shopify or the Conference sponsors or speakers. You may not use or reproduce or allow anyone to use or reproduce the Conference content or any trademarks (including without limitation “Shopify") without Shopify’s prior written permission.
- You voluntarily assume all risk and danger associated with attending the Conference, whether occurring prior to, during or subsequent to the Conference, and Shopify will not be liable for any resulting harm, including death, personal injury, loss, damage or any other liability. Shopify will have no liability to you and hereby disclaims any and all warranties of any kind, express or implied for the Conference.
- Admission to the Conference may also be subject to additional conditions of admission to Evergreen Brick Works and any other Conference-related event venue.
- At the time of check in, you must provide a form of photo identification to claim your badge.
- Attendee badges must be worn at all times in Conference areas.
- Once you receive your badge, it cannot be changed, substituted or reissued to a different person. If you lose your badge, please visit the Unite information desk at the Conference.
- By registering, you agree not to share, transfer, sell or trade your badge. If you violate this Policy, Shopify may cancel your attendance and retain any payments.
