VIDEO AND AUDIO RECORDINGS OF PRESENTATIONS AND SESSIONS
The use of cameras and audio recording equipment (including, but not limited to, camera-enabled cellular phones, film, digital, and video) is prohibited during PAS events without prior written permission from the PAS.
PAS always expects professional conduct from its event attendees. PAS reserves the right to refuse admittance to or expel from the events anyone who PAS determines is behaving in a manner that could be disruptive to the event or any other attendee or is not in the best interest of PAS. In such a case, no refunds will be given.
RIGHT TO USE NAME & LIKENESS
In consideration of my participation in PAS, I hereby grant PAS the perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free right and permission to record, photograph, use, and distribute (royalty-free, both now and in the future) my image, name, and voice in all forms and all media including, without limitation, photographs, electronic reproductions and transmission of images and audio files, webcasting, and any and all other uses on the internet for any and all PAS’s lawful purposes.
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, PAS will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate persons with disabilities. Contact PAS to make arrangements.
SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY
Except as provided below, PAS encourages all of its members and event attendees to participate in public discussions through social networking including but not limited to social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, as well as blogs. At the same time, PAS expects that such individuals will make statements that are in the best interests of PAS and will not engage in any inappropriate statements or statements which would be detrimental to the PAS as a whole. PAS retains the right to take appropriate action to remove any content or postings it determines are contrary to PAS’s interests.
INDIVIDUAL SLIDE AND POSTER PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEO
Information sharing is vital to advancing scientific research, but it is important to respect information privacy and copyright ownership as well. To help authors and attendees understand scientific content capture and sharing boundaries clearly, presenters must use PAS-provided icons to label each slide or poster with either the “PAS Share” or “Do Not Share” icons. Authors are responsible for placing the correct icon on each slide or poster.
Use of the PAS Share icon indicates the presenter or author agrees to capture by video and/or photography and potential sharing on various web and social media platforms. Sharing anywhere (social media, blogs, etc.) MUST include the authors’ full name and institution. If no icon is shown, sharing is not permitted.
Use of the PAS Do Not Share icon indicates the presenter or author does not agree to their scientific content, research, or presentation slides being shared anywhere. All attendees are strictly prohibited from using cameras, including mobile phones, tablets, cameras, and all other photography, audio, and video recording devices in these scientific sessions. This means attendees may not take photos or videos of speakers presenting or their slides.
The presentations, handouts, and other related materials (“Materials”) which are part of PAS are the copyrighted intellectual property of the owner and no use of such materials may be used in any way without the prior written consent of the copyright owner. Disclaimer: The views expressed by any event attendee, speaker, exhibitor, or sponsor are those of the speaker and not necessarily those of PAS. As such, PAS shall not be held liable for any claims relating to reliance on such views.
