1. Conference organiser
CLA events are being organised by CLA which is in the main business of organising conferences in the field of Employer Branding.
2. Declaration of consent
I hereby give my consent for CLA to collect, process and use my personal data for the purposes of processing the purchase of my ticket and for reaching out to me directly with offers about future CLA events and services of CLA Partners and sponsors. This information will also be used for the purposes of processing ticket sales and compiling delegate lists which will be shared with our Partners (also known as Country Partners) so they know which of their clients and/or community have registered, thus avoiding duplication in their local marketing initiatives. It will also be used to improve our system for enhanced networking opportunities and tailored content. Company names are also circulated by email to our email database, which includes all past and current delegates, for event promotional purposes.
3. Applying for tickets
I hereby give my consent for the mandatory and voluntary data collected from me in the course of purchasing and or registering for tickets for CLA events sold by CLA or its ticketing partners such as Eventbrite. I further give my permission for my user account details to be stored. I acknowledge that I may provide CLA a reasonable timeframe to remove my details at any time that I no longer wish them to be stored. I acknowledge and accept that my data will be used for commercial purposes in accordance with this Data Protection Policy and Declaration of Consent and will be retained and stored for this purpose. Should you wish your data to be removed you must request CLA to do so in writing. Requests will be processed within a 30-day period. Requests can be emailed to:

I hereby give my consent for CLA to use for the purposes of processing the mandatory data and any voluntary data I provide when applying for a ticket on CLA events. I further give my consent for the voluntary data provided. I acknowledge and accept that my data may be used for commercial, marketing and advertising purposes such as marketing and sales emails, social media messages and advertisements, and newsletters.
4. Ticket delivery
Once a successful purchase transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic copy by our ticketing partners (e.g. Eventbrite, via email to the email address nominated by the purchaser). CLA reserves the right to reject any ticket purchase up to 14 days after the ticket payment. If this happens, we will refund the full price of the ticket. The ticket acts as a receipt for the transaction and can be used to redeem entry at the CLA event listed on the ticket. A printed hard-copy ticket or an electronic soft-copy ticket detailing the reference number or barcode can be used to register at the event.
5. Registration & fees
Registration fees (or ticket fees) are published on the ticketing partner's (e.g. Eventbrite) website and are subject to change at any time as CLA sees fit.
Solicitation of business or distribution of materials by non-Partners is strictly prohibited. Violators will be immediately removed from the event.
Any person found to be registering to attend our events using false information or credentials or deliberately withholding information will have their application automatically denied and may be liable to prosecution.
If requesting to pay by invoice, the terms will be 7 days nett, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the organizers. To guarantee the registration or partnership is held, the invoice must be paid by the due date on the invoice.
If an invoice is unpaid by the due date, the ticket may be offered to a person on the waitlist if a waitlist has been activated.
7. Ticket handling
You cannot resell any tickets. Doing so will void the ticket and the ticket holder will not gain entry into the event. All tickets must be assigned to an attendee, and all attendee details must be complete. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes name, job title and company name. Ticket reassignment is possible but CLA reserves the right to reject the reassigned person’s attendance up to 14 days after the reassignment. In order to avoid rejection, contact CLA in advance of initiating the reassignment process.
Tickets are non-transferable and can only be used by the assigned person, they cannot be shared with another person between days, events or sessions.
If you are registering on behalf of another person, it is your obligation to make sure that the person attending is aware of these Terms and accepts them. By completing and submitting the registration form you are representing and warranting that you have made the person attending aware of these Terms and that they have accepted these Terms.
Your ticket remains the property of CLA and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission refused at any time upon a refund of the printed registration price.
It is strictly forbidden for any company, organisation or attendee to attempt to host or organise any event (pre or post World Employer Branding Day) or publish marketing content in conjunction with, contiguous to or purporting to be related to WEBD without the express prior permission and cooperation of CLA. In the event of a breach of these terms any tickets purchased will be rendered null and void. CLA reserves their right to take such legal action including a claim for damages as may be appropriate.
The tickets purchased are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be resold under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition. Where there has been any resale or attempted resale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), we reserve the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect.
We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket broker or tout.
CLA reserves the right to refuse admission to any event or conference for any behaviour, which it deems unacceptable, or for breach of the terms and conditions.
CLA and its subsidiaries will not be liable for any loss injury or damage to any person attending an event or property howsoever caused (save for death or personal injury as a result of CLA’ negligence or for any other type of liability that cannot by law be excluded or limited).
CLA will not be liable for the granting of any visas that are required to attend any event or conference. In the event that an attendee’s visa is not granted tickets will not be refunded for any event or conference.
Name changes will be facilitated free of charge. No name changes will be facilitated after 18 September 2023 and the ticket price will be forfeited and no refund payable.
For questions about registration or assistance with any registration problems, please contact us at email@example.com
If you have been selected to volunteer at the event or received a promotional code, but have already bought a ticket, you are not eligible for a refund.

CLA reserves the right to cancel, change the date to any date within 12 months of the then current Start Date, the format or relocate the Event at any time prior to the Event Date.

8. Data transfers
As a global business, we access and transfer information around the world. If you are based in the EU, this means that we access and transfer your personal information outside the EU, including in and to Australia. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in some of these countries may not be the same as in your home country. We transfer your personal information in accordance with law and take steps to ensure that your information is appropriately protected.
In particular, where we transfer information to countries that are not viewed as providing adequate protections, we generally rely on an approved mechanism known as the “standard contractual clauses” to protect the information transferred. These are template contracts published by the European Commission containing approved commitments to protect the privacy and security of the information transferred. To request a copy of the clauses, please contact us.
9. Your rights
You have a number of rights in relation to your information that we process. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below.

9.2 Rectify, Restrict, Delete. You can amend, update and delete some of your information by logging into your Eventbrite Conference profile.
9.3 Object. Where we process your information based on the legitimate interests described above, or in the public interest, you can object to the processing in certain circumstances. We will generally stop processing your information unless we have compelling grounds to continue processing, such as where needed for legal reasons. Where we use your information for direct marketing, you can always object using the unsubscribe link in such communications, changing your profile settings or by contacting us.
9.4 Revoke consent. If we have specifically asked for your consent to use your information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. For example, if we ask for your consent for direct marketing purposes, you can revoke your consent using the unsubscribe link in such communications, changing your profile settings or by contacting us.
9.5 Complain. If you wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local supervisory authority or CLA’s lead supervisory authority, Office of The Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).
The security of your personal information is important to us. We strive to use appropriate technical and organisational to protect your personal information. Despite these measures, the Internet is not a fully secure environment and we cannot guarantee that your personal information won’t be intercepted or improperly accessed.
