AOFAS will not be responsible for expenses incurred by an individual who is not confirmed and for whom space is not available at the course.

AOFAS may photograph or record you as you participate in this course and related activities. Lectures and questions from the audience may be captured and recordings made available in the future. Photos and recordings may be used by the AOFAS in future promotional materials. Photographing and recording of the sessions by course attendees is prohibited.

AOFAS reserves the right to cancel the AOAFS Winter Meeting at any time. Should this occur, registrants will be notified by email or mail at the address indicated on the registration form. Registration fees will be refunded in full; however, costs incurred by registrants, such as airline or hotel penalties, are the responsibility of the registrant.

In the event AOFAS Winter Meeting 2022 is entirely or partially canceled or postponed other than due to a Force Majeure, Attendee’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any damages, including incremental and consequential damages, sustained by Attendee as a result of such non-occurrence or postponement shall be a refund by AOFAS of registration fees paid by Attendee as of the date of such cancellation.

Attendee acknowledges and agrees that AOFAS’s performance under this Agreement is subject to and shall be excused due to one or more Force Majeure events (as defined herein) directly or indirectly impacting AOFAS or the Winter Meeting. A Force Majeure is defined as a circumstance or occurrence beyond the parties’ control which makes it inadvisable, illegal, commercially impracticable, or impossible for the Winter Meeting to take place as planned, including, without limitation: (i) acts of God, (ii) disasters (including, but not limited to, fire, flood, severe weather, and earthquake), (iii) war, (iv) civil disorder, (v) suspected or actual terrorism in or near the borders of the continental United States, (vi) government regulation (including, but not limited to, declared states of emergency), (vii) national or international public health authorities’ (including, without limitation, the Centers for Disease Control or the World Health Organization) declaration of public health emergencies, communicable disease, epidemic or pandemic advisories or alerts, (viii) strikes or work stoppages, (ix) curtailment of transportation services (including, without limitation, travel bans and advisories), (x) public or private policies which restrict or prohibit participants of the Winter Meeting from traveling to or attending the Winter Meeting. AOFAS shall promptly provide notice (which may be sent via e-mail to the address on the registration form) of a cancellation due to the existence of one or more Force Majeure events, and Attendee agrees that AOFAS shall have no liability whatsoever to Attendee as a result of such cancellation or AOFAS’s partial or non-performance due to such Force Majeure.
