Any change in the length, date, time or venue of the Event shall neither entitle the Corporate Partner to withdraw from the Contract, to request lowering of fees, nor to enforce indemnity claims.

In case of CIRSE rendering advertising services, Corporate Partners shall be responsible for the content of the advertisement. CIRSE is under no obligation to examine advertising content provided by Corporate Partner.

The Corporate Partner shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless CIRSE and its respective officers, agents, employees or other representatives, from any and all claims, loss and costs of any kind which might result or arise from any action or failure to act on the part of the Corporate Partner or its officers, agents, employees, or other representatives.
