We decided not to have a super-legal Terms of Service. If you’d like us to have one, please let us know. As such, we took a page out of the great 500px ’s book and have an easy-to-read Terms of Service.
Description of Service
We organize and operate independently organized TED events. In supporting the Ideas Worth Spreading initiative stated by TED, we will develop more features and services in the future.
Acceptance of Terms
By using the TEDxCalgary website, you agree to all of the terms below.
Modifications of Terms
If our terms change and you are registered with us, we will notify you. As well, at times things can go wrong and the service may be interrupted. It’s unlikely, but things can go really wrong sometimes.
To fully use services such as contests and give-aways, you need to register, ensuring you are not violating other people’s rights.
You cannot use our site to post pornographic material, harass people, send spam, and do other crazy stuff. Be a reasonable and responsible citizen; don't do anything bizarre or unkind, and you'll be fine.
Some links may be posted by us or others; we are not responsible for those links, their accuracy, or for the content of those links.
Release and Indemnity
We are not liable if something goes really wrong. However if something goes right, we’d love to take credit for it.
Please respect the TED and TEDx trademarks.
We may stop providing services at any time. You can also stop using this site and our services at any time.
