To the extent permitted by English law, Doctorsupdates Limited (trading as Doctorsupdates.com) excludes all liability whether in contract, tort or otherwise for all death, personal injury (with the exception of death or personal injury caused by Doctorsupdates Ltd’s negligence, as defined in Section 1 of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977), damage and loss, including consequential loss, incurred or suffered by you, your guests and/or accompanying persons and arising directly or indirectly from participating in a meeting organised by Doctorsupdates Ltd.
Website While every effort is made to ensure that all the information on this website is updated, correct and free from any errors or omissions Doctorsupdates Ltd will not be held responsible for any loss, direct or indirect, resulting from use of this information.
Third Parties. This website may contain links to third party websites which are not controlled and/or maintained by Doctorsupdates Ltd. These links are provided for your convenience only to facilitate access to useful information and services but Doctorsupdates Ltd make no warranty or representation as to the accuracy, completeness or fitness for purpose of the content and/or material advertised on these sites. Doctorsupdates Ltd accepts no liability for any loss including consequential loss or damage arising out of using the linked third party websites or relying on the information published on such websites or otherwise, howsoever suffered.
You are strongly advised to carry out whatever checks you consider necessary in the circumstances before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with a third party. In the event that you purchase or obtain goods or services from a third party your acquisition of such goods or services will be in accordance with the third party’s terms and conditions and Doctorsupdates Ltd will incur no liability to you, your guests and/or accompanying persons for loss or damage resulting from such an acquisition.
Sporting Activities. Any sporting activity, whether or not endorsed or otherwise sanctioned by Doctorsupdates Ltd, is undertaken by the participants, their guests and/or accompanying persons entirely at their own risk. Doctorsupdates Ltd accepts no liability for personal injury or death or any loss including consequential loss or damage arising directly or indirectly in connection with undertaking such activities. You are strongly advised to ensure that you have adequate and suitable insurance cover in force for the sporting activity you intend to engage in.
Winter Sports. Winter sports activities away from home need specific winter sports travel insurance cover but even if you have one already included in your policy, you are strongly advised to ensure that your chosen sport is one of the sports that are covered. You might be covered for skiing, for example but not for mountain climbing or riding a snowmobile. Also, an injury sustained while skiing off piste without a licensed guide is usually excluded from a standard winter sports insurance cover. Please note there is a popular misconception about Carré Neige insurance (purchased with the lift pass), or its annual equivalent, Carte Neige (“snow card/pass”). Carré/Carte Neige is not a full winter sports insurance policy and cannot be applied as substitute for proper winter sports insurance cover. Carré/Carte Neige is a top-up cover designed to act in tandem with your state, private or indeed winter sports travel insurance. Carré/Carte Neige covers you for transport off the mountain only, be it on or off piste, and you will be dropped off at the nearest doctor’s surgery or hospital. That is all. From this point onwards your Carré/Carte Neige is of not much help to you.
Publication of Photographs. Doctorsupdates Ltd shall not be held liable for any loss or damage, consequential or economic, howsoever arising out of publication on this website and/or in the Doctorsupdates Ltd printed brochure of photographs taken during the professional and/or extra-curriculum activities and featuring the conference participants, their guests and/or accompanying persons. By participating in the Conference and the associated activities you, the participant, your guests and/or accompanying persons expressly consent to the publication of photographs taken during the said activities.
Force Majeure. Doctorsupdates Ltd shall not be liable for delay in performing or for failure to perform its obligations in respect of the Conference programme, meetings or extra-curriculum activities, if the delay or failure results directly or indirectly from any of the following: (i) Acts of God, (ii) outbreak of hostilities, riot, civil disturbance, acts of terrorism, (iii) the act of any government or authority (including refusal or revocation of any licence or consent), (iv) fire, explosion, flood, fog, avalanche or bad weather, (v) medical emergencies and epidemics preventing free travel of delegates and causing unavailability of speakers, (vi) power failure, failure of telecommunication lines, failure of computer equipment, whether caused by a virus or otherwise, failure or breakdown of plant, machinery or vehicles, (vii) default of a third party supplier, (viii) theft, malicious damage, strike, lock-out, labour dispute or industrial action of any kind, (ix) curtailment of transportation facilities, and (x) any cause or circumstance whatsoever beyond reasonable control of Doctorsupdates Ltd.
