Connections Call for Speakers Terms and Conditions

Connections Call for Speakers Terms and Conditions

Thank you for your interest in becoming a speaker at any of the Guidewire Connections event.  As a prerequisite of becoming a speaker, you are required to submit an Abstract (i.e., a description of your proposed presentation in 100 words or less) for our review. By submitting the Abstract:

  • You authorize and permit Guidewire Software, Inc. (“Guidewire”, “we”, “ours” and “us”) to use the Abstract to determine your eligibility for the Connections speaking engagement and/or for other uses as described below.

  • You authorize Guidewire to edit your Abstract at its discretion.

  • You warrant and represent that you have all rights and permissions necessary for any materials included in the Abstract.  You agree to indemnify Guidewire for any costs, fees, or judgments, including reasonable attorney fees, resulting from a claim by a third party that such materials violate such third party’s rights.

  • You waive all rights you may have to any claims for payment or royalties in connection with any use regardless of the purpose. You also waive any right to inspect or approve the Abstract after submission.

  • If you are submitting an Abstract and registering on behalf of another individual, you must obtain verifiable consent from him/her prior to submission and must show Guidewire upon request.

If you are selected to become a speaker at Connections, we will send you information
outlining next steps which includes requirements and timelines.  Your participation in the speaking engagement will be contingent upon the execution of the Connections Speakers Terms and Condition, which will be presented to you after we notify you of the acceptance of your Abstract.

Guidewire reserves the right to revoke the acceptance of your Abstract and submission to become a speaker at Connections at any time with notice. Speakers will still be allowed to attend Connections even if their Abstract acceptance has been reversed. Guidewire is not responsible for any costs, fees, and expenses related to Connections (e.g., hotel, transportation, and connectivity expenses).

OTHER THAN TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED AS A MATTER OF LAW: (I) NEITHER GUIDEWIRE NOR ITS AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL COSTS, DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FROM CONNECTIONS OR OTHER ASPECT RELATED THERETO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS.

These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and the parties shall submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in San Francisco, California.

[  ]  I accept the Calls for Speaker’s Terms and Conditions.
