In the case of a dispute, you and AANP agree any litigation arising between the parties hereto shall be brought only in the state or federal courts having subject matter jurisdiction in Travis County, Texas. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the jurisdiction of any such court and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waive any defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any action or proceeding in any such court, any objection to venue with respect to any such action or proceeding, and any right of jurisdiction on account of the place of residence or domicile of any party thereto.
I consent to receive communications from AANP by e-mail. I agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications provided by AANP satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

I consent to AANP using any photos, other images taken of me, and any results of conference related activities that occurred during the conference for media outreach efforts, promotional campaigns, various publications/communications, or other business purposes as determined by AANP. In the event that AANP should find it necessary to cancel or postpone this conference for any reason, including but not limited to low registration, strikes, acts of nature, war, terrorists acts, or other circumstances beyond AANP's control, then AANP's liability shall be limited to refund of registration fees paid to AANP.
