Agenda Changes; Postponement or Cancellation of Event
From time to time, we may make updates to the Event agenda, which may include cancellation of or changes to certain Event activities. While the Event speakers and agenda are confirmed at the time of publishing, there may be substitutions, alterations, or cancellations of the speakers or agenda due to circumstances beyond the control of Ververica. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee any specific speaker, performing artist, entertainment, or other components of the Event agenda. We reserve the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers or agenda, and we will not refund registration fees, provide alternative compensation, or otherwise be liable to you based on these changes. Ververica will take reasonable efforts to update our Website with any substitutions or alterations as soon as reasonably possible.
Ververica is not responsible for any damage or loss as a result of alteration, substitution, delay, postponement, rescheduling, or cancellation of an Event. Ververica will not be considered in breach of these Event Terms or otherwise liable to you, except as specifically provided in this provision, if an Event is delayed, cancelled, rescheduled, or postponed, in whole or in part, as a result of government-ordered closures of venues, services, and other spaces, government-issued shelter-in-place and quarantine orders, government and agency restrictions and recommendations place on individuals and groups of individuals, any law or action taken by a government or public authority, health and travel restrictions, floods, fires, wars, epidemics and pandemics (including without limitation COVID-19 coronavirus), illness, accidents, internet and third party application connectivity, interruption or failure of utility service, electronic or communications failure, war, explosion, fire, flood, drought, earthquake, or other natural disaster, terrorist attack, riots, civil war, loss of electricity, labor or trade dispute, strike, industrial action or lockout, non-performance by service providers and subcontractors, delays by you, and other impediments to performance caused directly or indirectly by any event or circumstances outside Ververica’s reasonable control, that make Ververica’s performance illegal, impossible, inadvisable, or commercially impractical as determined in Ververica’s reasonable discretion. If an Event is delayed, cancelled, rescheduled, or postponed for these or any other reasons, your sole remedy shall be that we will provide you with access to the rescheduled Event or a similar replacement Event, at a later date to be determined by Ververica. Ververica will take reasonable efforts to notify you of any interruptions to the Event as soon as reasonably possible.

By participating or attending the Event, each Registrant agrees that he or she may appear in these photos and videos, and authorizes, and agrees to hold Ververica harmless from, their use in this fashion.
