These terms and conditions (the “Event Terms”) govern attendance and participation in events listed on NIJIRI.com, including parties, promotions, and contests. As used throughout these Event Terms, the terms “we”, “us”, “our”, and “NIJIRI.com” refer to NIJIRI Business Network and its entities. The term “NIJIRI Event” means an event, gathering, promotion, contest, meet-up or the like that is organised or hosted by NIJIRI Business Network. “Non-NIJIRI Event” means an event, gathering, promotion, contest, meet-up or the like that is organised by someone other than NIJIRI Business Network but that may appear or be listed on our website.
In order to participate or attend a NIJIRI Event, you must first agree to these Event Terms. If, after reading these Event Terms, you find that you cannot or will not agree to any terms or conditions within it, please do not RSVP to or attend any NIJIRI Event. If you RSVP to any NIJIRI or Non-NIJIRI Event through NIJIRI.com (e.g., by clicking “I’m Going!” or messaging an event organizer), you signal that you have read, understand, and agree to these Event Terms.
You represent that (a) you are at least 21 years old (or otherwise over the legal drinking age in your jurisdiction), (b) you have the requisite power and authority to enter into these Event Terms, and (c) you have read and understood these Event Terms as well as our Terms of Service and Content Guidelines.
NIJIRI Business Network and its sponsors and vendors sometimes take photos and videos at NIJIRI Events, and later use them for promotional purposes. By participating or attending any NIJIRI Event, you agree that you may appear in some of these photos and videos, and you authorize their use in this fashion. On the flip side, if you take any photos or videos of attendees at a NIJIRI Event and provide them to us, you authorize us to use them in the same fashion, and represent that the attendees that appear in your photos and videos have also consented to such use.
We do not control Non-NIJIRI Events or the people that organize them. It is possible that organizers or attendees of Non-NIJIRI Events will take photos or shoot videos in which you appear and then post them online (including, possibly, on NIJIRI.com). By RSVP’ing to a Non-NIJIRI Event through the NIJIRI Business website, you authorize our use of such media for promotional purposes.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK / RELEASE OF LIABILITY / INDEMNITY
Assumption of Risk
Although we try to create a safe environment at NIJIRI Events, accidents or other bad things happen, even to good people. We ask that you do your part to help limit the possibility that you might get injured at a NIJIRI Event. You agree to carefully consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and to take reasonable precautions before you choose to attend or participate at a NIJIRI Event. For example, you should ensure that you are in good physical health before engaging in any physical activity at a NIJIRI Event, and you should always drink responsibly given the risks associated with drunk driving and participating in activities while your judgment is impaired. Second, please note that some of the other NIJIRI Event guests may be less responsible than you, and may themselves create additional risk to you despite their best intentions.
In sum, you understand that your attendance and participation at NIJIRI Events is voluntary, and you agree to assume responsibility for any resulting injuries to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. By the same token, you agree that NIJIRI.com is not responsible for any injuries or accidents that you might sustain at Non-NIJIRI Events listed on the NIJIRI Business Network website.
Release of Liability
You (for yourself, your heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, and anyone else who might make a claim on your behalf) hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the NIJIRI Business Network and its respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, vendors, sponsors, and volunteers from any and all claims, demands, causes of action, damages, losses or expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys fees) which may arise out of, result from, or relate in any way to your attendance at any NIJIRI or Non-NIJIRI Event, except, of course, for any gross negligence or willful misconduct on our part.
By the same token, you agree to indemnify and hold NIJIRI Business Network, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to, related to, or connected with your attendance or conduct at any NIJIRI or Non-NIJIRI Event.
While we hope not to, we may prohibit your attendance at any NIJIRI Event at any time if you fail to abide by these Event Terms, the Terms of Service, or for any or no reason, without notice or liability of any kind. In the event of any termination, whether by you or us, all Sections of this Event Terms will continue in full force and effect.
CHOICE OF LAW AND VENUE
Nigeria law will govern these Event Terms, as well as any claim, cause of action or dispute that might arise between you and NIJIRI Business Network (a “Claim”), without regard to conflict of law provisions. FOR ANY CLAIM BROUGHT BY EITHER PARTY, YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT AND CONSENT TO THE PERSONAL AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION IN, AND THE EXCLUSIVE VENUE OF, THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED WITHIN NIGERIA.
You agree that you will not represent yourself as an employee, representative, or agent of NIJIRI.com (unless, of course, you are actually employed by NIJIRI Business Network, in which case these Event Terms will govern your participation in any NIJIRI Event to the extent such Terms are not inconsistent with our standard employment agreements or policies). We reserve the right to cancel any NIJIRI Event at any time, for any reason, and without liability or prejudice. Any failure on our part to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Event Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Event Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Event Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
UNOFFICIAL NIJIRI EVENTS
From time to time, members of the NIJIRI Business Network organize their own meet-ups and events (sometimes called “UNE” or “Unofficial NIJIRI Events”). Although NIJIRI.com representatives sometimes join in the fun, UNEs are Non-NIJIRI Events and are not sponsored or endorsed by NIJIRI Business Network, even when they are promoted on our website. If you organize a UNE, you agree to (a) promote it as such, and (b) not create the impression that it is sponsored or endorsed by NIJIRI Business Network. All terms and conditions relating to Non-NIJIRI Events apply equally to UNEs.
