Tickets can be in either paper or electronic formats. Both formats have a unique bar code which will be scanned at the entrance to the auditorium.

Without this information, Ticket Holder will be ineligible to collect a Bonus Bundle. VGI requires this information by no later than 5:00pm on October 20, 2018. Ticket Holder should provide this information at the VGI event.

15. No Warranty

VGI does not warrant that Ticket Holder will be satisfied with the event or that it will be free of technical difficulties.

16. Waiver Of Liability

Ticket Holder voluntarily assumes all risk and danger of personal injury and hazards arising from, or related in any way to the VGI event (including loss, damage or theft of any personal property) whether occurring prior to, during or after the VGI event and releases VGI and its staff, agents and volunteers from all liability.

17. Right To Alter

VGI reserves the right to postpone, cancel, interrupt or stop the VGI event due to adverse weather, dangerous situations, or any other causes beyond its reasonable control.

18. Authorization To Be Added To List

By providing any personal data to VGI, Ticket Holder agrees to join a list that will be emailed information pertaining to the VGI event and subsequent similar events. Ticket Holder may unsubscribe from this list with a single mouse click, at no cost and at any time.

19. Authorization To Reveal

By using a tracking code to purchase a ticket(s), Ticket Holder authorises VGI to reveal her/his identity to the person who provided her/him with this tracking code.

20. Bonus Bundle

Ticket Holder’s entitlement to receive a bundle of bonuses (“Bonus Bundle”) is conditional on compliance with the Ticket Holder Identity Policy (see 8. above) i.e., VGI must be informed of each Ticket Holder’s first and last names and email address by no later than 5:00pm on October 20, 2018. Ticket Holder can provide VGI with this information at the VGI event.

In the week beginning October 22, 2018 VGI will provide the ticket bonus donors with Ticket Holder’s first and last name so that they can verify Ticket Holder’s entitlement to receive the donated bonus. In the week beginning October 22, 2018 Ticket Holders will be advised how to claim each ticket bonus (each ticket bonus donor has its own procedure for claiming the ticket bonus that it has donated).

Each ticket bonus donor has undertaken to provide Ticket Holder with the right to claim a bonus when Ticket Holder buys a ticket. In good faith VGI has communicated this undertaking to Ticket Holder. VGI does not assume any liability in the event that a ticket bonus donor fails to honour its undertaking.

21. Bots And Brokers

VGI will not sell tickets to bots (automated software) or brokers.

22. Anti-Harassment Policy

Ticket Holder understands that the VGI event is a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment in which harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Violators of this policy will be expelled, will not receive a refund or any other form of compensation and will be banned from participating in future VGI events.

23. Anti-Sales Policy

Ticket Holder understands that people attend the VGI event in a spirit of curiosity, open-mindedness, respect and tolerance and that the event is appropriate for high-level relationship building, not salesmanship. Accordingly, Ticket Holder agrees not to aggressively pitch any company, organization, products or services to other attendees. Violators of this policy will be expelled, will not receive a refund or any other form of compensation and will be banned from participating in future VGI events.

24. Jurisdiction

British Columbia law shall govern the sale of all tickets and Ticket Holder agrees to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the British Columbia courts.
