3. Fulfillment of All Criteria
It is very important to AGSCE that all of the criteria set out above are met and we note that you are fully responsible and liable for the contents of the abstract and/or not complying with the criteria. AGSCE has no obligation to verify the contents of the abstract or to verify if the exploitation thereof may cause any damages to AGSCE or any third parties. Should the abstract you are about to present fail to meet one or more of these criteria, AGSCE is allowed to stop the exploitation of the abstract immediately and can decide to pass any claims AGSCE and its partners (such as other companies in its group structure or the parties it granted permission to) receive from third parties on to you. By presenting the abstract, you declare you are aware of this and that you agree to indemnify all these parties for all of their costs and damages that are the result of the fact that the abstract does not meet all criteria (for instance legal costs for advice and proceedings, reimbursements that AGSCE has to pay to any third party, costs for removing the abstract from all sources, etc.). Furthermore, you will provide full cooperation to AGSCE so AGSCE can react promptly and thoroughly to any claims of third parties.
4. Use of the Abstract by AGSCE
You grant AGSCE the permission to use (e.g. publish and distribute) the abstract for the event purpose. You grant AGSCE the right to place the poster on a USB stick or other medium that may be handed out to the visitors of the event and the contributing parties.
Should you present the abstract at the event, it speaks for itself that AGSCE has your permission to show (your presentation of) the abstract at the conference space to the public and to provide all visitors with hand-outs.
Further to this, AGSCE will be allowed to upload the abstract to its digital database (and any other database that AGSCE will have in the future).
