In addition, you authorize CLP to reproduce and display Your Content via the features that enable the Sites to be accessed both on the Internet and through other electronic communication media, and to adjust Your Content’s format as necessary for the purposes of reproduction and display.

You are responsible for taking all appropriate steps to protect Your Content, where applicable.
The Sites may include bulletin boards, blogs, chat rooms and other pages that allow you and other users to post information and materials, provide feedback or comments to CLP and/or its Sites, and interact in real-time with other users or the Sites. You agree that CLP and its licensees may reproduce, distribute, publish, display, edit, modify, create derivative works and compilations and otherwise use all information, text, messages, photographs, videos, member or display name and other materials posted by you (“Your Content”) for any purpose in any form and on any media. You grant CLP a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free right and sublicensable license to reproduce and create derivative works and compilations of Your Content, in whole or in part, and to display, perform, distribute and transmit the same in any form and on any media, including via the features that enable the Sites to be accessed both on the Internet and through any other electronic communication media or technology, now known or later developed, and to adjust the format or Your Content as necessary for the purposes of reproduction, display and transmission.
By using the Sites, you agree and grant CLP the non-exclusive, royalty-free right and sublicensable license to display, distribute and transmit third-party advertisements in connection with Your Content.

If you decide to visit any Linked Site, you do so at your own risk and it is your responsibility to take all protective measures to guard against viruses or other destructive elements. CLP has no responsibility to you with respect to any Linked Site and no Linked Site, regardless of the linking form (e.g. hotlinks, hypertext links, IMG links) is maintained, controlled, endorsed, monitored or otherwise governed by CLP. Links from our Sites to any Linked Site do not constitute an endorsement by CLP of a Linked Site, or the products, content, materials or information presented or made available by such sites. You acknowledge and agree that CLP is not responsible for any damages or losses to you or any other person caused or alleged to have been caused by your use of any Linked Site, or from the products, content, material or information presented by or available through those sites.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless CLP, its officers, directors, employees and agents against any claim, action and/or complaint by any third party to which we may be exposed and you agree, in this regard, to accept exclusive liability for any sums, damages, costs, lawyers’ fees and court costs for which we may be held liable arising from your submission of material to the Sites or your violation of these Terms.

You agree that any dispute between you and CLP arising out of or relating in any way to these Terms or your use of the Sites shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey without reference to its conflicts of laws and shall in all respects be governed, construed, applied, and enforced in accordance with the laws of New Jersey.

CLP may amend or revise the Terms or any other policy of CLP at any time and you agree to be bound by such revised Terms or policy. Any such amendment or revisions will become effective upon the date it is first posted to this site. It is your responsibility to return to the Sites from time to time to review the most current Terms and other CLP policies. CLP does not and will not assume any obligation to notify you of changes to the Terms or any other policy of CLP.

Your registration may be transferred to a member of your organization up to 24 hours in advance of the conference. All cancellations received in writing on or before 30 days prior to the start date of the event will be refunded, less a $695 administrative charge. No refunds will be made after this date.

The opinions of the conference faculty do not necessarily reflect those of the companies they represent or CLP.

severe weather conditions, natural and man-made disasters and any other similar events.
- Entire Agreement
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between CLP and you with respect to the Sites, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written, between you and CLP with respect to the Sites. A printed version of the Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and record originally generated and maintained in printed form.
If, for any reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Terms or any portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the Terms, and the remainder of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
