COVID-19 disclaimer for on-site participation

The following disclaimer must be accepted inside registration web form when acquiring your participation.
  1. All on-site attendees are obliged to fulfil the German requirements for the event participation including, but not limited to FFP-2 or medical masks, distance measure, usage of disinfectants, etc. These regulations might be adjusted from now until the conference starts.
  2. In order to avoid the spread of COVID-19 and to guarantee a safe conference for all participants, all on-site attendees must agree to strictly follow the hygiene concept of the GSTM2022 conference and the rules stated at the time as issued by the German authorities, the conference venue, and the organizing committee. These regulations and the hygiene concept might be adjusted several times, including adjustments on short notice just before the conference starts. Under this aspect, an on-site participation is at the risk of the attendee. Neither Copernicus Meetings nor the organizing committee, the conference venue, or any company providing services for the on-site conference can be made liable for any possible infections, resulting damages to the attendee's health, or any subsequent suffering an attendee might get.
  3. The contact details of on-site attendees will be recorded for possible contact tracing and must be passed on by Copernicus Meetings to the German authorities in the event of an emergency.
  4. Possible adjustments to the German requirements for event participation and/or the GSTM2022 conference hygiene concept might lead to a situation where either an on-site attendee is forced to cancel their on-site registration, or the event organizer is forced to cancel it. For such late cancellations due to German travel and/or event regulations, the participant can switch to an online participation and Copernicus Meetings will reimburse the difference of the attendee's gross on-site registration to the online registration without an additional cancellation fee. Copernicus Meetings, the organizing committee, and the event organizer would not be liable for any subsequent claims for any other reimbursements (e.g. attendee's travel or accommodation costs).
