You are only able to attend the Inversion Summit if you are approved. Un-registered persons are not permitted to attend.
By registering for an Inversion Summit, you further represent and warrant that (a) all information submitted is true and correct to the best of your knowledge; and (b) if there are any errors or inaccuracies with regard to information you submit, including whether or not you qualify to attend the Inversion Summits, you will update this information as soon as you discover the inaccuracy.
By registering for an Inversion Summit, and again prior to attending the Inversion Summit, you represent and warrant that you agree to all of the terms found in our Health and Safety Policy and are in compliance with all obligations contained therein. If you are not able to fulfill all obligations under our Health and Safety Policy, we ask that you do not attend the Inversion Summit or do so virtually (if available).

Showing proof of a negative test is not a substitute per these Terms.
Inversion Management reserves the right to refuse attendance at any of the Inversion Summits to any person and for any reason, including not being in full compliance with our Health and Safety Policy. If you are refused attendance for any reason, your registration will be cancelled, will be null and void, and you will not be entitled to a refund.
Inversion Management reserves the right to change the itinerary, speakers, venue, timing, or other aspects of the Inversion Summits, none of which are guaranteed. We will do our best to keep everything as close to what we share on our Website, but changes do happen from time to time, for a variety of reasons.
Inversion Management reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to also make available a virtual Inversion Summits, but nothing herein requires Inversion Management to do so.
If Inversion Management enables attendance of a virtual Inversion Summit, your attendance at the virtual Inversion Summit may be limited by (a) your internet connection; (b) having and maintaining a working smartphone or computer; or (c) the country where you are attending the Inversion Summit. Unless your access to the virtual Inversion Summit is made unavailable solely as a result of a technical error in the control of Inversion Summit, you are solely responsible for meeting or exceeding all technical requirements of attending the Inversion Summit virtually.
All registrants and attendees of the Inversion Summits are solely responsible for securing hotel rooms and paying all associated costs, none of which are included in your registration fee. We do not and cannot guarantee you a hotel room at the Inversion Summit or any nearby hotels, so we strongly advise you to book your accommodation as soon as possible after registration. Inversion Management is not connected in any way to the venue or any of the other hotels nearby. It is your sole responsibility to comply with all terms and conditions proffered by these companies, including if you decide to cancel your attendance at the Inversion Summit.
All registrants and attendees of the Inversion Summits are solely responsible for transportation to and from the event.
Should any of the Inversion Summits be canceled or rescheduled for any reason, attendees are solely responsible for all travel and accommodation-related expenses, none of which will be reimbursed or reimbursable by Inversion Management.

No chargebacks of any kind are permitted, and should a chargeback be initiated by you, Inversion Management will be able to collect from you, in addition to all monies owed, an administrative fee of five hundred dollars ($500.00) which is the estimated cost and time it will take for Inversion Management to handle your chargeback. This administrative fee is not a penalty and is a reasonable estimation of the time and cost Inversion Management will incur to handle your chargeback and was specifically bargained for by you prior to registering for the Inversion Summit.
Section 6 – Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy
Once you register and pay for the Inversion Summit, you are able to cancel your registration exactly up to 120 days prior to the Summit start date.

By registering for our Inversion Summits, you explicitly understand that this is not appealable or challengeable for any reason.
If you fail to show up for the event or are denied entry for any reason, you will not be entitled to a refund of any kind. Last-minute cancellations, no-shows, or those who are not in compliance with all rules and procedures for any of the Inversion Summits are ineligible for refunds, as our company incurs costs and expenditures based on the expected number of attendees.
You are solely responsible for contacting Inversion Management for a refund if you qualify for one. Refunds are not automatic, and we must be notified that you can no longer attend the Inversion Summit.
If the Inversion Summit is rescheduled or moved, you will not be entitled to a refund of your registration fee which will be applied to the new event.

Section 14 – Disclaimer
OUR WEBSITE AND ANY OF THE INVERSION SUMMITS ARE PROVIDED ‘AS IS’ AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, INVERSION MANAGEMENT AND ITS OWNERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, LICENSORS, THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS AND AFFILIATES, EXCLUDE ALL REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY LIABILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUSTAINED BY YOU AS A RESULT OF ATTENDING THE INVERSION SUMMIT.
WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, EVEN IF WE WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, NOR SHALL WE BE HELD LIABLE FOR DELAY OR FAILURE IN PERFORMANCE RESULTING FROM CAUSES BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES AND CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED TWENTY-FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($2,500.00).
YOU AGREE THAT NO CLAIMS OR ACTION IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, OR IN TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATED TO, THE USE OF OUR WEBSITE, THE INVERSION SUMMITS, OR THESE TERMS MAY BE BROUGHT MORE THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION RELATING TO SUCH CLAIM OR ACTION AROSE.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Inversion Management, its agents, employees, directors, officers, owners, etc. harmless for any loss, damages or costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any claim, action, or demand arising from (i) your use of the Website; (ii) attending our Inversion Summits; (iii) your conduct at, during, before, or after the Inversion Summits; or (iv) your breach of these Terms.
Neither party is responsible for a failure to perform its obligation(s) under these Terms if that party is prevented in performing those obligations or performance would be impracticable as a result of a Force Majeure. “Force Majeure” means acts of God, acts of the public enemy, wars, blockades, insurrections, riots, storms, floods, fires, washouts, arrests, the order of any court or governmental authority, civil disturbances, explosions, and any other causes whether of the kind herein enumerated or otherwise; provided, that any of the foregoing must not reasonably be within the control of the party claiming delay or interruption and must be an event which through the exercise of due diligence such party is unable to prevent or overcome. INABILITY TO PAY, CORPORATE TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS OR CHANGES, OR COMING DOWN WITH COVID-19 IS SPECIFICALLY NOT A FORCE MAJEURE.
Where there is an event of Force Majeure, the party prevented from or delayed in performing its obligations under these Terms must immediately notify the other party giving full particulars of the event of Force Majeure and the reasons for the event of force majeure preventing that party from, or delaying that party in performing its obligations under these Terms and that party must use its reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of the event of Force Majeure upon its or their performance of the contract and to fulfil its or their obligations under these Terms.
An event of Force Majeure does not relieve a party from liability for an obligation which arose before the occurrence of that event, nor does that event affect the obligation to pay money in a timely manner which matured prior to the occurrence of that event.
Section 18 – General Provisions
Entire Agreement. These Terms contains the entire agreement between you and Inversion. No oral agreements are effective.
Waiver. The failure by Inversion Management to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of our right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of this Agreement.
Assignment. You may not assign, pledge, delegate, or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under this Agreement without Inversion Management’s prior written consent.
Relationship. Nothing in these Terms shall create, or is intended to create an agency, employment, franchise, joint venture, or partnership relationship between you and Inversion Management.
Applicable Law/Dispute Resolution. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California. Except for any payment related issues by registrants, any dispute arising from this Agreement shall be subject to binding arbitration in San Francisco, California. The prevailing party in any dispute shall be entitled to recover its/his/her reasonable attorney’s fees and costs. The governing rules shall be the rules, then-implemented, by the American Arbitration Association commercial division. Inversion Management and you agree that any such final decisions may be presented to a court of competent jurisdiction for purposes of being confirmed as a judgment enforceable under the law in which that party is domiciled or where their headquarters are located. Should either party forego arbitration, that party shall be barred from recovering their attorneys’ fees or costs.
Class Action Waiver. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you and Inversion Management agree that any dispute arising out of these Terms or the Inversion Summit is personal to you and Inversion Management and that any disputes, if any, will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of similar proceeding.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators finds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.
Updates. We recommend that you check the Terms periodically for updates.
