Insurance and liability disclaimer  

The FIP Organising Committee, the Local Hosts, FIP Headquarters and MCI Amsterdam (hereafter called the organisers) may be not held responsible for any loss, injury or damage to any property, whatever the cause may be. Liability of persons and enterprises providing means of transportation or other services, however, remains unaffected. It is recommended that participants obtain adequate cover for travel, health and accident insurance before they depart from their countries. The organisers cannot accept responsibility for personal injuries, or loss of, or damage to, private property belonging to the congress participants. Should, for any reason outside the organisers’ control (including but not limited to acts of terrorism, extreme weather conditions and/or industrial action) the venue or speakers change, or the congress be cancelled, the organisers will endeavour to reschedule, but shall not be held responsible for any costs, damages or expenses incurred by registrants. If for any reason the organisers decide to make changes to the congress, they are not responsible for airfares, hotels or other costs incurred by registrants. The participants take part in the congress, tours and trips at their own risk. Furthermore, the organisers may not be held liable for any costs or damages incurred resulting from acts outside of their control including but not limited to force majeure, strikes and/or public manifestations.
Only written arrangements are binding. The sole legal venue is The Hague. Registration of a participant entails acceptance of these conditions.
In any disputes that may arise concerning the execution or interpretation of these regulations, both parties agree that they will be subject to Dutch law and that the commercial courts of The Hague will be competent, without prejudice to the organisers’ right to initiate proceedings under the laws and before the courts of the participant’s registered office in the event any sums are due by the participant to FIP.
