Right to Reject Registration, Refuse Entry, or Eject Participants. The Canadian Centre reserves the right to reject any registration prior to the date of the conference without explanation by notifying the individual concerned by email or mail and refunding 100% of the registration fee paid. It also reserves the right to refuse entry to a registrant or to eject a participant from the conference or from a presentation without explanation. If entry is refused, 100% of the registration fee paid will be refunded. If the registrant is ejected from the conference or a presentation, the amount of the registration fee that will be refunded will be pro-rated based upon how much of the conference the registrant has already attended and whether or not the participant returned the conference materials in reasonable condition and within a reasonable time.

Photographs and Videos. Cameras, video cameras and phones/PDAs with such capabilities must not be used by participants within the conference venue.

Limitation of Liability. The subject matter that may be touched upon or presented at the conference may be disturbing to some participants. While reasonable efforts are made by the presenters and by the conference organizers to minimize the disclosure of graphic details, it is not possible, due to the nature of the subject matter, to avoid presenting information that may be disturbing to some. Participants must protect themselves by exercising discretion and removing themselves from the conference and specific presentations as necessary based on their own knowledge of themselves and their own sensitivities.
