Promotional activities and events

The terms set out apply to any organisations or individuals partnering, sponsoring, or attending Promotional Activities or Events.

‘Benefits’

means any products and services made available by us to a person, company, organisation, agent, third party, partner, sponsor or firm which is purchased in relation to any Promotional Activity or Event.

Cancellation, Postponement & Force Majeure

1. If for any reason, we are unable to deliver any of the Benefits from a Promotional Activity or an Event to an organisation or individual, we will inform you as soon as reasonably practicable. We may substitute alternative Benefits in respect of the same Event to an equivalent value of the relevant Benefits without any liability to you.

2. You acknowledge and agree that you shall be solely responsible for all costs that you incur relating to your attendance at the Promotional Activity or Event (including, without limitation, any travel costs, and all costs incurred by you in exercising the Benefits).

3. Changeboard Holdings Limited shall not be deemed to be in breach of this Agreement or otherwise liable to you for any failure or delay in performing our obligations under this Agreement for commercial reasons (including but not limited to, an event of force majeure where such event though not directly affecting the Promotional Activity or Event, may have an adverse effect on the commercial success of the Promotional Activity or Event), in its sole discretion, be entitled to cancel or postpone the Promotional Activity or Event. Changeboard Holdings Limited shall give written notice to the organisation or individuals of its decision as soon as reasonably practicable, and upon receipt of such notice:


(a) in the case of cancellation of the Promotional Activity or Event the organisation or individual shall be entitled to:

(i)  terminate this Agreement and to the extent that any Promotional Activity or Event Benefits have not been received (or only a proportion of a Benefit has been received) at the date of such termination, obtain a refund of such proportion of Promotional Activity or Event Fees as Changeboard Holdings Limited may reasonably calculate; or

(ii)  elect to apply the Promotional Activity or Event Fee (whether or not paid to Changeboard Holdings Limited) to another Changeboard Holdings Limited Promotional Activity or Event, provided that the date of such event is less than 12 months from the date of such cancellation; or

(b) in the case of postponement of the Promotional Activity or Promotional Activity or Event Event:

(i)  where the new Event date is less than 12 months away from the original Event Date:

(I) elect to apply the Promotional Activity or Event Fee (whether or not paid to Changeboard Holdings Limited) to another Changeboard Holdings Limited event, provided that the date of such event is not greater than 12 months from the date of cancellation; or

(II) terminate this Agreement and to the extent that any Sponsor Benefits have not been received (or only a proportion of a Sponsor Benefit has been received) at the date of such termination, obtain a refund of such proportion of Sponsorship Fees as Changeboard Holdings Limited may reasonably calculate; or

(ii)  where the new Event date is more than 12 months from the original Event date, the Sponsor may terminate this Agreement and to the extent that any Sponsor Benefits have not been received (or only a proportion of a Sponsor Benefit has been received) at the date of such termination notice, obtain a refund of such proportion of the Sponsorship Fees as Changeboard Holdings Limited may reasonably calculate.

For the avoidance of doubt, where the organisation or individual elects to apply the Promotional Activity or Event Fee to another Changeboard Holdings Limited event, Changeboard Holdings Limited is under no obligation to provide the same Promotional Activity or Event Benefits for the same Fee.


4. Changeboard Holdings Limited shall not be deemed to be in breach of this Agreement or otherwise liable to the organisation or individual for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this Agreement as a result of an event or series of connected events outside the reasonable control of Changeboard Holdings Limited (including, without limitation, acts of God, floods, lightning, storm, fire, explosion, war, military operations, acts or threats of terrorism, strike action, transport cancellations, lock-outs or other industrial action or a pandemic, epidemic or other widespread illness). Changeboard Holdings Limited reserves the right to independently determine whether such circumstances of force majeure apply up to and including on the specific day or days of a Promotional Activity or Event.

5. In the event of frustration of the Agreement due to any of the above force majeure causes the Agreement shall be deemed to be complete. No refunds will be given in respect of any cancellations under these force majeure circumstances.

6. If a delegate is unable to attend an event for any reason they may substitute, by arrangement with Future Talent Group, someone else to attend in their place. 

7. These terms and conditions are governed by English law. The courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to hear any dispute or claim arising in association with any of these terms and conditions.
