To attend the Event, you need to agree to these Terms of Use. Please read them carefully before you book your Event and, if the Event is held at a Barclays Eagle Lab, attend the Barclays Eagle Lab

1. Who we are and how to contact us

2. Acceptance of the Barclays Terms of Use

  • References to "you" or "your" are references to any individual or business attending an Event. If you will be attending the Event on behalf of an entity (such as on behalf of your employer), you agree to these Terms of Use on behalf of that entity and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such case, "you" and "your" will refer to that entity as well as yourself. These Terms of Use and all disputes, claims, controversies, disagreements, actions and proceedings arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Use (“Proceedings”) are governed by English law and you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in relation to such Proceedings.
  • These Terms of Use govern your attendance at an Event and associated use of the relevant Barclays Eagle Lab if the Event is hosted there. By booking an Event through Eventbrite you are deemed to accept and be bound by these Terms of Use.  The Terms of Use will remain in effect from the time you sign up to an Event until the end of the Event or cancellation in accordance with these Terms of Use.
  • If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, you should not attend the Event.

4. Age restrictions and attendee participation 

All of our Events will either be hosted through a webinar or at one of the Barclays Eagle Lab, whichever we may choose. You can only attend an Event if you are over 18.

Each Event is intended to be attended by a number of other attendees and is designed to be interactive. The content of an Event may therefore be influenced by attendee participation. The presenter may focus on certain elements of the Event content as a result of such attendee participation.

5. Your confidentiality

  • Information that you share at an Event may be seen and heard by other attendees at the Event. 
  • You agree that we shall not be under any obligation of confidentiality to you regarding any information or content shared by you at an Event, unless agreed otherwise between us in writing or as required by law. You therefore agree that you will not share any information which is confidential or sensitive in nature.

6. Intellectual Property Rights and our confidentiality

  • All Intellectual Property Rights belonging to a party to these Terms of Use prior to the execution of these Terms of Use shall remain vested in and belong exclusively to that party. Nothing in these Terms of Use shall be taken to be a transfer or assignment of or an agreement to transfer or assign any such Intellectual Property Rights to the other party. Neither party shall be entitled to use any of the other party’s Intellectual Property Rights other than as expressly set out in these Terms of Use or as otherwise agreed in writing.
  • At an Event, we may provide you with or display to you certain software technology, documents, intellectual property and/or other material, information and content (i) created by or owned by us or (ii) owned by a third party (“Content”). The Content is provided to you solely for your own use in order to receive the benefit of attending the Event and is not intended to be relied upon by any other person. 
  • We grant to you a non-exclusive, royalty free, non sub-licensable licence other than to your Affiliates to use our Intellectual Property Rights in the Content, for the purposes of your attendance at the Event only. We have the right to terminate this licence if you use our Intellectual Property Rights in any manner not permitted in these Terms of Use. 
  • To the extent the provision of the Event involves our use of your Intellectual Property Rights (if any), you hereby grant to us a non-exclusive, royalty free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-sub-licensable (other than to our Affiliates and subcontractors), transferable licence, to our Affiliates, to use such Intellectual Property Rights. 
  • So far as we are aware, all Intellectual Property Rights made available to you in the Content will not infringe any Intellectual Property Rights of any third party.
  • You agree to not redistribute, disclose, disseminate, syndicate or provide access to the Content in electronic or any other form to any other third party, except (i) to your Affiliates in order to receive the benefit of the Event, where you have provided that Content subject to non-disclosure obligations that are no less onerous than those set out in these Terms of Use, (ii) where such Content is publicly available prior to the Event, (iii) was in your lawful possession prior to the Event, (iii) becomes available to you after the Event from a third party otherwise than through a breach of confidence owed to us, (iv) is independently developed by you (where you can evidence this), or (v) is required to be disclosed by law or governmental regulation or by any competent body or authority or authority to which you submit (provided that you notify us as early as possible before making such disclosure and take all reasonable steps to avoid disclosure).

7. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

  • We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. Neither party limits or excludes its liability under paragraphs 6 (Confidentiality) and 7 (Intellectual Property Rights) of these Terms of Use.

o   loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation.

  • To the extent permissible by law, we exclude all implied conditions, warranties, representations or other terms that may apply to the Event or any Content provided to you. The Event is provided “as-is” without any warranty, representation or assurance of any kind. We will however provide the Event to you with all due skill, care and diligence in accordance with Good Industry Practice and Applicable Law.
  • We will not be liable to you for any loss or damage, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, even if foreseeable, where this arises under or in connection with:

o   your attendance at, or inability to attend, the Event; 
o   your contact with other attendees at the Event, or the actions of other attendees at the Event; 
o   our cancellation of an Event except any refund of some or all of the Attendance Fee provided in accordance with these Terms of Use; 
o   any inaccuracies, omissions or errors in the Content;
o   your use of or reliance on any Content provided at the Event including any financial, investment and business decisions or any specific courses of actions you choose to make or not make, as a result of attending an Event or any Content presented at an Event;
o   your use of the Content other than in accordance with paragraph 7 of these Terms of Use (Intellectual Property Rights); or 
o   the suitability of the Event for your intended purposes.

  • You understand and agree that the Event and Content is not intended to be advice (whether legal, financial, business, tax, accounting or otherwise).
  • To the extent permitted by law, our maximum aggregate liability to you in respect of an Event is limited to the Attendance Fee you have paid to us in respect of that Event.

8. What else you need to know

Changes to these Terms of Use

  • If we need to change these Terms of Use and we consider that the change will affect you negatively, we’ll tell you about the change in advance. If it’s a change that we consider will benefit you or that won’t affect how you access the webinar or use the Eagle Lab premises if the event is hosted there, we’ll tell you after we make the change. 
  • When there is a change, we’ll update the Terms of Use on our website and we may also send you an updated Terms of Use by email. If we need you to agree to a change, we may ask you to confirm your acceptance of the change prior to attending an Event.

  • You put us in a position where we might break any Applicable Law or other duty that applies to us or you do not obey with any Applicable Laws that apply to you; 

o   you give us any false information at any time; you do anything which, in our opinion, is likely to or does cause harm to our reputation;

In particular, paragraphs 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 shall continue in force and survive cancellation or expiry of these Terms of Use.
