2. On requesting an invitation, you must provide RLC with accurate, complete registration information and it is your responsibility to update RLC with any changes to that information. RLC is entitled to rely on any information you provide to us.

3. Each registration is for a single user only. The email address that you provide on the Request an Invitation form must correspond to a named email account and not a generic or shared email account.

Confirmation of registration

4. All requests for an invitation are subject to availability and acceptance by RLC, which will be confirmed by email after RLC has received the completed Request an Invitation form, along with any other stated requirements.

5. Upon RLC’s written confirmation to you of its acceptance of your request for a place at an online Event there will be a legally binding contract between RLC and you to which these terms apply.

11. RLC may in exceptional circumstances need to postpone or cancel an online Event, and we will notify you as soon as practically possible of any such postponement or cancellation.

12. RLC reserves the right to cancel your attendance at the online Event if you (or any of the shareholders or directors of the legal entity which you represent) become(s) subject to any sanction, or continuation of these terms would (in the reasonable opinion of RLC) expose RLC or any of its affiliated companies to any sanction.
