It may also result in expulsion from the Premises by security.
- Disruptive or Unethical Conduct. You acknowledge and agree that the Organisers and other security personnel, volunteers at the Event, or staff of Cambridge Live reserve the right to remove you from the Event if the Organisers, in their sole discretion, determine that your presence or behavior create a disruption or hinder the Event or the enjoyment of the Event by other attendees or to be of an unethical or harrassing nature.

These aforementioned losses or damages or injuries or deaths include those arising directly or indirectly from the Event or any other aspect related thereto or in connection with the Event or this Agreement.
- The Organisers or Cambridge Live will not be held liable for any property damage or loss, personal injury or death arising from the behaviour or actions of any attendees of the Event.

- The Organisers give no warranties in respect of any aspect of the Event or any materials related thereto or offered at the Event and, to the fullest extent possible under the laws governing this Agreement, disclaims all implied warranties, including but not limited to warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, timeliness, and merchantability.

The Organisers do not accept any responsibility or liability for reliance by you or any person on any aspect of the Event or any information provided at the Event.
- Each attendee must take reasonable steps to ensure their own safety and the safety of others, as well as take reasonable care of the property of theirselves and others. This especially applies to circumstances where they are tired, when they are working with hardware and potentially dangerous equipment, as well as when they are consuming any food or drink. They will check that the food or drink complies with their dietary requirements, if any.
- Do note that accommodation reimbursements will be prioritised beneath travel reimbursements and therefore should not be depended upon. They will also both be part of the total reimbursements cap we are aiming to provide. Note that none of this constitutes a guarantee of reimbursement — whether we reimburse and how much is solely up to our discretion.
- The Organisers of Hack Cambridge give no warranties or legal guarantees in respect of any aspect of the travel or accommodation reimbursements offered and, to the fullest extent possible under applicable laws, disclaims all implied warranties.

Neither party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any obligation under the common law or under any Agreement which is due to an event beyond the control of such party including but not limited to any Act of God, terrorism, war, Political insurgence, insurrection, riot, civil unrest, act of civil or military authority, uprising, earthquake, flood or any other natural or man made eventuality outside of our control, which causes the property damage or loss or death or injury any parties, or termination of an agreement or contract entered into. Any party affected by such event shall forthwith inform the other party of the same and shall use all reasonable endeavors to comply with the terms and conditions of any Agreement contained herein.
The Organisers’ failure to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. The Organisers shall not be liable for any failure to perform their obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond the Organisers’ reasonable control. If any provision of this T&C is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this T&C shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this T&C and you acknowledge that you do not have any authority of any kind to bind the Organisers or the Event or Cambridge Live in any respect whatsoever.
