Policies and Liability Statement
Cardiometabolic Risk Summit Disclaimer
Cardiometabolic Risk Summit (CRS), its contractors, and attending news media may be photographing or videotaping scientific sessions and events at the meeting. By attending CRS, attendees acknowledge these activities and agree to allow their image to be used by CRS in association publications, on the CRS website, and in marketing and promotional materials. Attendees at CRS waive all claims against CRS for any liability resulting from these uses.
Please note that the cut-off date for cancellation is July 31, 2018. All cancellations must be received in writing and postmarked by that date. Full registration (less a $100 processing fee or full registration amount, whichever is less) will be refunded only to cancellations received in writing that are postmarked by that date. No refunds will be issued after July 31, 2018 for any reason—no exceptions. Registrations are transferable at any time.
Under no circumstances will children under the age of 18 be allowed at the conference or in the Exhibit Hall during installation or dismantling. For insurance reasons, children under the age of 18 are not permitted on the show floor. Because of limited seating capacity and the highly technical nature of the programs, children under the age of 18 are not invited to attend presentations.
Industry-Supported Symposia (ISS) Disclaimer
Please note that because ISS programs are supported by industry grants or sponsorships, the producers of CRS along with the sponsoring company reserve the right to restrict these sessions to non-competitive industry clinicians only. If you are deemed to be a representative from a competitive company, your registration to an ISS program can be cancelled at any time.
Seating is limited for all session rooms and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

I hereby agree to release, defend, and hold harmless CRS and its agents or employees, including any company publishing and/or distributing the finished product in whole or in part, from and against any claims, damages, or liability arising from or related to the use of the photographs, including but not limited to any misuse, distortion, blurring, alteration, optical illusion, or in the taking, processing, reduction, or production of the finished product, its publication, or distribution.
