Trailblazer Community Group Meeting Terms

Welcome to the Salesforce Trailblazer Community Group Meeting website. We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you enjoy everything we have to offer.

Please read these Trailblazer Community Group Meeting Terms (the “Terms”) carefully because they are a binding agreement between you and Salesforce.com, inc., its affiliates, and subsidiaries (“Salesforce” or “We”). By using or logging into the Site, or participating in any Community Group Meeting (as defined below), or otherwise indicating your acceptance, you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms.

These Terms govern your use of www.trailblazercommunitygroups.com (together with any Salesforce information, data, content and other materials available therein, and successor site(s) thereto), the “Site”), and your participation in any meetings that are listed or organized on the Site (each, a “Community Group Meeting”), which may include meetings listed or organized on the Site by any Salesforce Trailblazer Community Group (each, a “Community Group”). For clarification purposes only, Community Group Meetings are not Events and the Site is not a Community Site, as defined in the Salesforce Program Agreement.

Salesforce may change these Terms from time to time by notifying you of such changes by any reasonable means, including by posting revised Terms at https://trailblazercommunitygroups.com/ or any other applicable Salesforce website. No such changes will apply to any dispute between you and Salesforce arising before Salesforce posted the revised Terms, or otherwise notified you of such changes. Your participation in any Community Group Meeting or use of (including logging into) the Site following any changes to these Terms will constitute your acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree to any changes, you must stop participating in Community Group Meetings and using the Site.

Please note that we offer many products and services in addition to the Site. Your use of any such other Salesforce products or services is subject to a separate manually or digitally-executed agreement, and not these Terms.

 

Unofficial Salesforce Meetings

Please note that Community Groups and Community Group Meetings are not hosted, organized, or run by Salesforce. Instead, they are run by Community Group leaders (for the purposes of these Terms, Community Group leaders includes student group leaders) who are passionate about Salesforce, our services and products, but are not agents or employees of Salesforce. Salesforce is not the creator, organizer or owner of any Community Group Meeting, even if Salesforce employees attend a Community Group Meeting, or Salesforce sponsors a Community Group Meeting, or Salesforce provides Community Group Meeting-related materials, or Salesforce promotes the Community Group Meeting on a Salesforce website or website paid by Salesforce, or the Community Group Meeting is held on Salesforce property. As a result, the views expressed by Community Group leaders (or expressed by any other Community Group members) do not necessarily reflect the views of Salesforce. Community Group leaders independently create and organize Community Group Meetings, manage Community Group Meeting registration, and communicate Community Group Meeting details. You acknowledge that Salesforce has no control over and does not guarantee the quality, safety, accuracy or legality of any Community Group Meeting or content associated with or presented at a Community Group Meeting, and your participation in any Community Group Meeting is at your own risk.

If you organize a Community Group Meeting, you agree to (a) promote it as such, and (b) not create the impression that it is sponsored or endorsed by Salesforce.

 

Meeting Conduct

While Community Group Meetings have different purposes, Salesforce expects all Community Group leaders, Community Group members and attendees to maintain a friendly, safe, supportive and harassment-free environment, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion or other group identity.

Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Community Group leaders or Salesforce may prohibit your participation in a Community Group or attendance at any Community Group Meeting at any time if you fail to comply with these Terms, or for any or no reason, without notice or liability of any kind. Further, anyone engaged in unacceptable behavior may result in immediate suspension from the Community Group(s) or Site account termination. Unacceptable behavior may also result in prohibition from registering for or attending future Community Group Meetings.

 

Assumption of Risk

Your participation in and attendance of a Community Group Meeting or any related activities is completely voluntary. You agree to consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and take reasonable precautions before you choose to participate in or attend a Community Group Meeting. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, YOU ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL RISKS OF ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INJURY OR DAMAGE TO YOUR PERSONAL PROPERTY THAT YOU MAY FACE WHILE ATTENDING A COMMUNITY GROUP MEETING OR RELATED ACTIVITIES, AND WAIVE ANY CLAIMS AGAINST SALESFORCE RELATING TO SUCH RISKS.

 

Limitation of Liability and Indemnification

In no event will the maximum aggregate liability of Salesforce, arising out of or related to these Terms, or your use of the Site or participation in a Community Group Meeting, exceed ten U.S. dollars ($10.00). The foregoing limitation will apply whether an action is in tort or contract and regardless of the theory of liability. In no event will Salesforce be liable for any indirect, special, cover, incidental, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages arising out of or related to a Community Group Meeting, statements or conduct of Community Group members (including Community Group leaders), attendance and participation in Community Group Meeting, and the actions of you or others at Community Group Meetings, even if Salesforce has been advised of the possibility of such damages or if any remedy otherwise fails of its essential purpose. The foregoing disclaimer will not apply to the extent prohibited by law.

To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, you will defend and hold Salesforce harmless against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Salesforce by a third party arising out of or relating to: (a) your use of, or activities in connection with, the Site, (b) your attendance or conduct at any Community Group Meeting, and/or (c) your violation of these Terms; and you will indemnify Salesforce from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Salesforce as a result of, or for any amounts paid by Salesforce under, a settlement approved by you in writing.

 

No Employment or Agency Relationship

Using the Site or participating in a Community Group Meeting does not make you an employee or agent of Salesforce. This means that you cannot claim to be an employee or agent of Salesforce or claim to speak as a Salesforce representative. Further, you cannot sign contracts or enter into agreements on Salesforce’s behalf. Site users and Community Group Meeting participants are not entitled to any benefits that Salesforce employees are entitled to under Salesforce’s policies or programs.

 

Conflict of Interest

We expect you, as a Site user or Community Group Meeting registrant, to be aware when you have a conflict of interest due to employment or other projects you are involved in. You are expected to abstain or delegate decisions that may be seen to be self-interested. Further, you should never share any confidential or proprietary information owned by yourself, by your current employer, or other third parties.

 

Photo, Video and Other Media

Community Group leaders, Community Group members, other Community Group Meeting attendees and/or Salesforce (and/or others on behalf of Salesforce) may be photographing, recording (both audio and video), webcasting, podcasting or otherwise transmitting during any or all of a Community Group Meeting (including at the Community Group Meeting venue during an Community Group Meeting session or other activity). Your image, likeness, voice, statements and other identifying characteristics (each, an “Image”) may be captured in photographs, recordings (both audio and video), webcasts, podcasts, or other transmissions of a Community Group Meeting (each, a “Recording”).

You hereby grant to Salesforce with respect to all Recordings (and to each Community Group leader, Community Group member, or other Community Group Meeting attendee with respect to any Recordings captured by such leader, member or attendee) a worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable and fully sublicensable (through multiple tiers) license, without additional consideration to you or any third party, to reproduce, distribute, perform and display (publicly or otherwise), create derivative works of, adapt, modify and otherwise use, analyze and exploit such Recordings (including your Images therein), in whole or in part, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed, and for any purpose (including for promotional purposes, such as testimonials). The foregoing license also applies to any Recordings you make available to Salesforce or any Community Group leader, Community Group member, or other Community Group Meeting attendee. Salesforce exclusively owns all right, title and interest (including intellectual property rights) in and to the Recordings captured by Salesforce (and/or by others on behalf of Salesforce) (“Salesforce Recordings”), all modifications and derivatives of Salesforce Recordings, and all proceeds derived from Salesforce Recordings or such modifications or derivatives. Salesforce has no obligation to share any such proceeds with you.

You hereby irrevocably waive any right you may have to inspect or approve the use or other exploitation of any Recording or any reproductions thereof, and you agree that Salesforce has no obligation to use any Recording (including any of your Images) or otherwise exercise any of the rights granted to Salesforce with respect to your Images.

Your Images may appear in Recordings made available to the public, and third parties may retain, use or distribute such Recordings. Salesforce has no control over, and is not responsible for, any use or misuse (including any distribution) by any third party of any Recordings.

In connection with the use or other exploitation of Recordings (including your Images), you hereby irrevocably waive and release any and all claims with respect to intellectual property, rights of publicity, rights of privacy, and any other claims or damages with respect to such use or other exploitation. You affirm that you are of legal age and have read the foregoing release and fully understand its contents.

In addition, you hereby represent that all individuals whose Images are captured in any Recordings you make available to Salesforce or to any third party have consented to the inclusion of their Images in such Recordings and have authorized you to grant on their behalf the license, waiver and release granted by you to such Images and Recordings in these Terms.

 

Email Settings

Your submission of information to or through the Site is governed by the Salesforce Privacy Statement, as updated by Salesforce from time to time, currently available https://www.salesforce.com/company/privacy/full_privacy/ (the “Privacy Statement”), to the extent such information is considered Personal Data (as defined in the Privacy Statement).

In addition, by joining a Community Group you agree to receive emails regarding your participation in the Community Group Meetings and related activities from Community Group leaders and Salesforce. Any communications you receive from a Community Group leader or other Community Group members are not sent by or on behalf of Salesforce. Instead, they are sent by Community Group leaders or Community Group members in their individual capacities.

Further, by registering for a Community Group Meeting, you may receive emails regarding meeting updates and post-meeting related emails, which may include, but are not limited to, survey evaluations and Community Group Meeting-related materials from both Salesforce and Community Group leaders.

You agree to keep your contact information up to date at all times. You can unsubscribe from emails sent by a Community Group any time by navigating to your Trailblazer Community Group profile on the Site and adjusting your Updates settings or by using the opt-out mechanism in the footer of the Community Group email. If you unsubscribe from Community Group emails you may still receive emails for Community Group Meetings in which you agree to participate.

 

Governing Law, Dispute Resolution and Venue

Each party agrees that any and all disputes, actual or alleged claims, and causes of action at law or in equity, arising out of or in connection with these Terms, or any use of the Site or participation in Community Group Meetings (each, a “Claim”), will be governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A., without regard to choice or conflicts of law rules.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY SUCH CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND YOU ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION OR CLASS ACTION.

If you are domiciled outside of the United States, you agree that any Claim, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved, and will be exclusively brought, in the state or federal courts located in San Francisco, California. You also hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts, and waive any defense based on venue or inconvenient forum.

If you are domiciled in the United States, all Claims, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court. Such disputes include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. All such matters will be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge. Either party may immediately bring a proceeding (SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS) seeking preliminary injunctive relief or a temporary restraining order in a court of competent jurisdiction, which will remain in effect subject to the rules, procedures and statutes applicable to such relief until (a) an order is entered by a court of competent jurisdiction enforcing a final award made in arbitration of the applicable Claim, or (b) an appellate court vacates, stays or overrules such relief. YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by the Agreement. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at https://www.adr.org/consumer. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of the Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of the Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing: (1) nothing in the Agreement will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you, and (2) any party may seek injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.

 

Prohibited Countries

You must comply with U.S. regulations related to embargoed countries and regions. Salesforce currently prohibits the unauthorized usage of its products and services in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, and the region of Crimea. Community Groups are not supported in these regions. Because this list of countries and regions may change from time to time, customers and their users are urged to consult the relevant regulations, including the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR Part 730 et seq.), U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctions programs, and Canada's Area Control List under Canada's Export and Import Permits Act.
