  10. Forward-Looking Statements: You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, since such statements speak only as of the date they are made. Certain statements contained in the Websites may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Words or phrases such as “should result,” “are expected to,” “IPTC anticipates,” “IPTC estimates,” “IPTC projects” or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from IPTC’s historical experience and its present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to:
    1. conditions affecting the availability, acquisition, development and ownership of real estate;
    2. unanticipated weather conditions;

    4. IPTC’s ability to attract, train and retain highly-qualified associates and members;
    5. general economic conditions;
    6. the impact of competition; and
    7. regulatory and litigation matters.
  11. International Users and Choice of Law
    1. The Websites are controlled, operated and administered by IPTC from its offices within the United States of America. IPTC makes no representation that materials on the Websites are appropriate or available for use at other locations outside of the United States and access to them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. You may not use the Websites in violation of U. S. export laws and regulations. If you access the Websites from locations outside of the United States, you are responsible for compliance with all local laws. The laws of the State of Massachusetts shall govern these Terms and Conditions of use, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions.
    2. This Notice constitutes the entire agreement between IPTC and you with respect to your use of the Websites. Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Websites must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Notice or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the Notice, and the remainder of this Notice shall continue in full force and effect.
  12. Security: The Websites have security measures in place and IPTC will use its commercially reasonable best efforts to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under IPTC’s control. IPTC’s computing equipment is in a secured environment. The information is password protected and is not accessible to unauthorized employees or personnel at any time. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. As a result, IPTC cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
  13. Member Events: Thank you for your interest in participating in an International Puppy and Trainer Contest (“IPTC”) event. By registering for an event, you agree to these terms. In this section, words like ‘holder’, ‘bearer’, and ‘registrant’ will refer to you – the person who will register for the event. On the other hand, ‘our’, ‘us’, ‘we’, ‘issuer’, ‘provider’ and similar terms will indicate the organizers of IPTC.
    1. By opting to register, allocate or possess tickets to IPTC member events, you automatically agree to our Terms and Conditions. If you have problems with any of the clauses listed below or do not agree with the risk allocations mentioned here, please do not register or try to enter the IPTC events’ premises.
    2. Any fees assesed as part of registration for an IPTC event are dues, fees, or charges for a one (1) year membership to IPTC.
    3. Please note that IPTC reserves the right to make changes, revisions, and amendments, or add/remove sections from this set of terms and conditions – without any prior notifications to you. Such changes will be duly reflected on this website. These changes will relate back to the date of registration for IPTC events.
    4. The fees for one (1) IPTC event registration will be displayed on this website for each event. This figure is non-negotiable.
    5. The registration represents a revocable license for you to access IPTC events on the indicated dates when the event is scheduled to be hosted. The license includes the revocable right to attending the IPTC event. This license can be revoked at any time by the issuer at its sole discretion, without any prior notifications or compensation options. If the license is revoked, you will not be granted entry at the venue.
    6. The bearer has to assume full responsibility of the IPTC event registration ticket, once they receive it. IPTC has no liabilities – financial, legal, or otherwise – in case the delivered tickets are stolen, lost, damaged, destroyed or rendered unusable in any other way.
    7. Kindly note that https://www.iptc.dog is the sole authorized source for IPTC event registrations. If you obtain your ticket(s) from any other unauthorized source, you take on the risks of those tickets turning out to be counterfeit or reported to be stolen. The issuer has the right to dishonor such stolen/counterfeit registrations and declare them as void.
    8. The IPTC event registration tickets delivered to you are not meant to be used for illegal reselling, copying, reproducing, or misrepresenting in any form. You cannot use the ticket(s) for any promotional/advertising purposes either (including sweepstakes and competitions) without our prior approval. Any proven record of such activities will result in immediate seizure and cancellation of your ticket(s).
    9. Please note that IPTC event registration tickets cannot be redeemed against cash, credits, or any other benefits.
    10. IPTC has the right to investigate if there has been any violation of the registration and ticketing terms and conditions. In case of any conflicts, the decision of IPTC will be deemed final (i.e., the issuer will remain the final arbiter in cases of disputes).
    11. The event service will be deemed to have been delivered in its entirety as soon as the IPTC event starts. From that point on, no refund requests will be entertained.
    12. If you are not able to access any particular section(s) of the venue due to delays, federal regulations, organizer policies, weather-related problems, emergencies, venue shutdown/evacuation or any other reason, you will not be eligible for any refunds or future credits.
    13. If an IPTC event is cancelled in its entirety due to any unforeseen circumstances, IPTC has the sole and absolute right to reschedule the event, or issue a partial/full refund, or not issue any refunds. Please note that the decision of the issuer in such cases will be deemed final and binding.
    14. If an IPTC event is cancelled due to any factors or causes not in the control of the issuer, the latter may offer a partial or full refund, or no refund, or postpone the event, or provide a comparable ‘make good’ option. These factors will be inclusive of, but not limited to, natural disasters, federal/state announcements, strikes, delays in production, and the like. Once again, the decision of IPTC will be considered final.
    15. If an IPTC event has to be rescheduled to other dates, you will not be eligible for any refunds. In case the event is fully canceled, any refund, if issued, will include ONLY the face value/printed value of the ticket(s). The bearer cannot, under any circumstances, claim refunds on shipping fees, processing fees, handling fees, and such other charges.
    16. Losses, if any, occurring due to foreign exchange fluctuations at the time of refunds, have to be borne by the registrant. IPTC cannot be, in any way, held liable for that.
    17. All ticket registrations are deemed as FINAL TRANSACTIONS. There will be no ticket returns/exchanges/cancellations.
    18. Unless noted, any IPTC event is a ‘rain or shine’ event. By registering for the event, you automatically confirm that you/the attendee(s) are of the ‘minimum age’ or older, at the time of buying the ticket(s). The ‘minimum age’ for attending an IPTC event is 18.
    19. If it is proven beyond doubt at the venue that an attendee is below the ‘minimum age’, they will not be granted entry to the IPTC event or will be removed from the event. No refunds, full or partial, will be issued either.
    20. At the time of entering the event venue, you may be required to produce the registration ticket and a valid identification document (ID). By presenting an ID, you confirm that all details present on it are accurate and updated.
    21. By registering for IPTC event tickets and presenting the same at the venue, you give your consent to IPTC to collect certain information about yourself (name, address, date of birth, etc.) for verification and storage.
    22. You hereby agree to forego all types of surcharge claims – full or in part – and all claims & entitlements related to it.
    23. IPTC does not take any responsibility to personal/financial damages caused to you at the venue, or for any items lost/stolen/misplaced at the venue. Financial reimbursement claims on these counts will not be entertained.
    24. IPTC events follow a common ‘zero-tolerance policy’ towards unauthorized drug usage or carrying at the venue, AND towards any type of behavior/actions that violate our Code of Conduct, our Diversity & Inclusion Policy, or our Terms and Conditions. If you are found in possession of prohibited items at an IPTC event and/or if you indulge in any objectionable action, your participation in the event will be terminated immediately. Your event registration ticket(s) will become void from that point on, you will be removed, and depending on severity the authorities will be notified.
    25. Please note that you register for IPTC event tickets on your own free will. As such, you do not have the right to initiate a chargeback claim or dispute on the provider of the credit card/debit card that had been used for the transaction. Further refund/return/cancellation requests will not be entertained either.
    26. In all cases of disputes between the registration ticket-bearer and the ticket-issuer, the decision of the latter will be deemed final. In case a dispute cannot be resolved, the help of an independent third-party arbiter will be sought.
  14. User Transactions and Purchases: If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Websites including (but not limited to) items sold by IPTC and IPTC memberships, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Transaction including, without limitation, information about your method of payment (such as your payment card number and expiration date), your billing address, and your shipping information. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY PAYMENT CARD(S) OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD(S) UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY TRANSACTION. By submitting such information, you grant to IPTC the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Transactions initiated by you or on your behalf. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any Transaction. All descriptions, images, references, features, content, specifications, products and prices of products and services described or depicted on the Websites are subject to change at any time without notice. Certain weights, measures, and other descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only. The inclusion of any products or services on the Websites does not imply or warrant that these products or services will be available. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal, and international laws (including minimum age requirements) in regard to the receipt, possession, use, and sale of any item purchased from the Websites. By placing an order, you represent that the products ordered will be used only in a lawful manner. IPTC reserves the right, with or without prior notice, to do any one or more of the following: limit the available quantity of or discontinue any product or service; impose conditions on the honoring of any coupon, coupon code, promotional code, or other similar promotion; bar any user from making or completing any or all Transaction(s); and refuse to provide any user with any product or service. You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the Websites, at the price(s) in effect when such charges are incurred including, without limitation, all shipping and handling charges. In addition, you remain responsible for any taxes that may be applicable to your Transactions. IPTC does not offer additional discounts on large orders of a single item or on large orders of many individual items. In addition, we reserve the right to limit quantities on orders placed by the same account, on orders placed by the same method of payment, and on orders that use the same billing or shipping address. We will notify you if such limits are applied. IPTC reserves the right to prohibit purchases of any merchandise to resellers. Resellers are defined as a company or an individual that purchases goods with the intention of selling them rather than using them.
  15. Returns and Refunds: All purchases made using our Websites are covered by a 14 day return policy. You are guaranteed a full refund within this period as long as the item is returned is in retail condition, unused, in the original packaging, and resalable. Unless the item sold is faulty, the customer is responsible to pay for any costs to return the item, including but not limited to shipping. IPTC, at its sole discretion, will provide refunds via the original form of payment, if available. Exceptions to this policy include event tickets after the start time of the event has passed. To initiate a return or refund, please contact us via email at [email protected].
  16. Errors & Inaccuracies: IPTC strives to display as accurately as possible the colors of the products shown on the Websites; however, IPTC cannot and does not guarantee that your monitor’s display of any color will be accurate. If an item is out of stock, IPTC, may, in its sole discretion and at no extra cost to you, substitute another item for the out-of-stock item if IPTC, in its sole discretion, determines that the identical brand and product is available in a form that is of equal or greater value, for example, larger quantity, packaged with a trial sample, or with updated product packaging. IPTC’s acknowledgement of an order means that your order request has been received; it does not mean that your order has been accepted or shipped or that the price or availability of an item has been confirmed. IPTC makes a conscientious effort to describe and display its products and services accurately on the Websites. Despite these efforts, a small number of items on the Websites may be mispriced, described inaccurately or unavailable, and we may experience delays in updating information on the Websites and in our advertising on other sites. As a result, we cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, including prices, product images, specifications, availability, and services. IPTC, reserves the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies or omissions at any time without prior notice. We apologize for any inconvenience. If we determine that there were inaccuracies in our product information, we will cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation via email.
  17. Rules for Promotions: Any sweepstakes, contests, raffles, or other promotions (collectively, “Promotions”) made available through the Websites may be governed by rules that are separate from these Terms & Conditions. If you participate in any Promotions, please review the applicable rules as well as our Privacy Policy. If the rules for a Promotion conflict with these Terms & Conditions, the Promotion rules will apply.
  18. Notices & Electronic Communications: By signing up for notices on our Websites or purchasing from our store, you consent to receive notices and other communications by IPTC posting notices on the Websites, sending you an email at the email address provided to IPTC, or sending you push notifications to your mobile device. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that IPTC provides to you in accordance with the prior sentence satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

You agree that a printed version of these Terms & Conditions and/or any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms & Conditions to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
  19. Force Majeure: IPTC is not liable if and insofar as its obligations cannot be fulfilled as a result of force majeure. Force majeure means any strange cause, as well as any circumstance that should not reasonably be at its risk. Delays or non-performance by our suppliers, disruptions in the Internet, disruptions in electricity, disruptions in e-mail traffic and disruptions or changes in technology supplied by third parties, transport difficulties, strikes, government measures, delays in the supply, negligence of suppliers and whether manufacturers of as well as auxiliary persons, illness of personnel, defects in auxiliary or transport equipment are expressly regarded as force majeure. IPTC reserves the right in case of force majeure to suspend its obligations and is also entitled to dissolve the agreement in whole or in part, or to demand that the content of the agreement is amended in such a way that execution remains possible. Under no circumstances is IPTC obliged to pay any fine or compensation. If IPTC has already partially fulfilled its obligations when the force majeure commences, or can only partially fulfill its obligations, it is entitled to invoice the already delivered or deliverable part separately and the customer is obliged to pay this invoice as if it were a separate contract. However, this does not apply if the already delivered or deliverable part has no independent value.

Section 230(d) as amended, we hereby notify you that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors.
