You shall not, and shall not permit anyone else to, directly or indirectly, (i) modify, reproduce or otherwise create derivatives of any part of the Services or Site Content (as defined below); (ii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or structure, sequence and organization of all or any part of the Services (except that this restriction shall not apply to the limited extent restrictions on reverse engineering are prohibited by applicable local law); (iii) rent, lease, resell, distribute or use the Services for timesharing, service bureau, or commercial purposes; (iv) remove or alter any proprietary notices or labels on or in the Services or Site Content; (v) engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Services; or (vi) engage in any fraudulent activity or activity that facilitates fraud.
If you are allowed to download or use any Software in connection with the Services, the Organizers hereby grant you a personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-exclusive license to use the Software solely for your internal use in connection with the Services, and only in accordance with this TOS and the written instructions/directions (if any) provided by the Organizers in conjunction with the Software. For purposes of this TOS, “Software” shall mean any and all software that is available on or through the Site or otherwise provided by the Organizers. For clarity, the Software will be deemed a part of the “Services” hereunder.

This website provides a system for registering to attend (acquiring a membership for) Equestria LA 2017. Registration offers different tiers of service with different prices (membership dues), as listed on the Registration website. The Organizers will make a best-faith effort to provide the level of service offered on the Registration site, but make no guarantees of providing service for any reason. Any credentials issued providing access to the Event (“Membership”) are licensed, not sold, to you solely for the purposes of attending the Event. The Organizers may revoke any Memberships to the Event for any reason, deemed solely at their discretion, issued via spoken word, written word, or email, without expectation of a refund issued. If your Membership is revoked, you agree to immediately return your Membership to the Organizers and immediately leave the Event premises.
At the discretion of the Organizers, the Registration system may accept certain codes in exchange for discounts (“Coupon Codes”). Coupon Codes are not eligible to be applied to transactions that have already been completed. The Organizers do not offer any means of partial refunds if Memberships are purchased at a higher rate than is possible later due to a Coupon Code.
As part of Registration, the website will ask for pieces of personally identifying information (“PII”). It is your responsibility to provide accurate information upon registering. Providing incorrect PII may lead to your Membership being revoked at the discretion of the Organizers. The Organizers will only be providing pre-purchased Memberships at the Event if the PII is verifiable through the use of government-issued photo identification. If you need changes made to any registration information that will be printed on a physical badge of membership (this includes a name or badge name), you may be subject to a $5 badge reprinting fee.
In general, the Organizers will not be providing refunds for any reason. The Organizers may, at their sole discretion, decide to offer a refund for exceptional circumstances. Should the Organizers decide to issue you a refund, your Membership will be immediately invalidated and must be remitted as noted in the Registration section of this TOS. The refund will not exceed the amount paid. The Attendee further agrees that once the registration and payment are submitted, this agreement is a legally binding and enforceable obligation of the Attendee.
If an event for which a membership has been purchased is cancelled, due to any reason, the Organizers will make every effort to equally distribute available funds to Membership holders up to the cost of their membership. Full refunds are not guaranteed or likely should this unfortunate situation arise. Members will receive refunds after the total available funds are determined and all relevant legal and contractual matters are settled, including but not limited to insurance payouts and reparations from the Venue. If Event merchandise is pre-purchased before the event and that merchandise is not available for distribution at the Event a full refund will be given in the amount of the merchandise price to the purchasing Attendee.
In the event of a dispute between Attendees and Organizers, the Attendee agrees to make a best-faith effort to contact the Organizers through information on the website to resolve the dispute. The Organizers will attempt to resolve the dispute through the rules and information laid out on this website and in this TOS. Should the Attendee seek outside remediation of the dispute, any communication/information shared with the Organizers will be made available for remediation at the discretion of the Organizers.
The Organizers will use commercially reasonable efforts to hold the Event. However, under no circumstances will the Organizers be held responsible for unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Business’ reasonable control, including acts of god, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems nor can any reservation be cancelled, altered or amended once the Event has commenced on the basis of circumstances beyond the Organizers’ reasonable control.
