Terms and Conditions
By attending Monterey Comic Con or any part of Monterey Comic Con, you agree to allow Monterey Comic Con/Spatial Anomicon, its agents, licensees or assignees, the right to use your image and/or likeness by media now known or hereafter devised for advertising and/or other promotional purposes. You also agree not to take pictures or videos where posted or announced as prohibited and agree that any permitted photos or videos will not be used for any commercial purposes and will not be made publicly available or generally displayed without prior written consent of Monterey Comic Con.
By registering for a paid or complimentary Monterey Comic Con badge you agree not to sell, trade, transfer or share your comp code, email confirmation, or badge. In the event that Monterey Comic Con/Spatial Anomicon determines that you have violated this policy, Monterey Comic Con has the right to cancel your badge(s) and keep any money paid by you. Confirmations and/or badges that have been sold or provided by anyone other than Monterey Comic Con will not be honored by Monterey Comic Con. You must wear and display your badge at all times while onsite and at any official Monterey Comic Con event. All badges are the property of Monterey Comic Con and must be relinquished to Monterey Comic Con upon request. Monterey Comic Con reserves the right to refuse admission, to refuse service and/or to cancel/revoke your Member ID and/or badge at Monterey Comic Con’s discretion.
Monterey Comic Con may perform any of the following validation of badges on entry to any area of the convention. These measures are an effort to prevent illegal badge duplication and unauthorized reselling. Monterey Comic Con may scan a barcode, require a photo ID that matches the name on the badge, scan RFID embedded in the badge, and examine the badge with other technological and/or physical methods to verify authenticity of the badge and holder. Before leaving any registration area please make sure that the name on the badge matches your identification.
I understand that I must register an individual name for each badge and that each name must match a legal photo ID. If Monterey Comic Con determines that you have purchased more than one badge in your name for any day, Monterey Comic Con has the right to cancel your duplicate badge(s) and issue you a refund less the 10% handling fee.
You must register for a Montery Comic Con Member ID in order to be entitled to purchase and register a badge. Children (age 12 and under) may not register for a Monterey Comic Con Member ID. Everyone who intends to purchase, apply, or register for a Monterey Comic Con badge must have a valid and confirmed Monterey Comic Con Member ID. This includes attendees, volunteers, professionals, guests of professionals, trade professionals, exhibitor main contacts, and members of the press. If Monterey Comic Con determines that you purchased or registered for a badge, but did not register for a Monterey Comic Con Member ID, Monterey Comic Con has the right to cancel your badge and refund any amounts paid, less the 10% handling fee, at Monterey Comic Con's sole discretion.
Although Monterey Comic Con makes efforts to ensure the purchase of badges is easy, efficient, and equitable, Monterey Comic Con makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that, by logging onto the Web site with a Monterey Comic Con Member ID, you are entitled to or be able to purchase a badge. Due to the limited number of badges and the large volume of Monterey Comic Con Member ID holders, badges are sold as long as they are available. Please be advised that Monterey Comic Con badges sell out very quickly. Not all persons eligible to purchase a badge will be able to purchase a badge. Additionally, Monterey Comic Con makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that the Web site will function properly throughout the badge sales process. In the event that the Web site malfunctions, Monterey Comic Con will try to rectify the problem in a timely fashion. Notwithstanding, by using the Web site you agree that IN NO EVENT SHALL MONTEREY COMIC CON, ITS PRINCIPALS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE WEB SITE OR THE BADGE SALE AND REGISTRATION PROCESS.
If you use your Member ID to purchase a badge for a day for which you previously purchased a badge, the original badge you purchased will automatically be canceled and the amount paid will be refunded, less the 10% handling fee, without contacting you.
For example, if you purchased a Friday and Saturday badge during online attendee registration and you use your Member ID to register as a professional and/or press with Preview Night at a later date, the Friday and Saturday badge you purchased during attendee registration will be canceled and refunded, less the 10% handling fee.
This policy does not apply to purchasing different single day badges or upgrades. For example, if you purchased a Thursday and Sunday badge during attendee preregistration and you later use your Member ID to purchase a Friday, Saturday, and Preview Night badge, your original Thursday and Sunday badge purchase will not be canceled. Only purchases of badges with overlapping dates will be subject to automatic cancelation and refund.
Not all attendees who purchased a badge during Monterey Comic Con attendee preregistration will be eligible to purchase a badge during open online registration. Monterey Comic Con reserves the right to limit and define eligibility for Monterey Comic Con attendee preregistration and open online registration.
Reselling, sharing, or transferring a Monterey Comic Con badge or complimentary pass is strictly prohibited.
IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND MONTEREY COMIC CON 2018 YOU MUST APPLY FOR A REFUND BY March 1, 2018 FOLLOWING THE REFUND POLICY. Refunds ARE NOT GUARANTEED and any and all refunds will be subject to a minimum 10% handling fee.
MONTEREY COMIC-CON RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE ITS CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE.
