Speaker Agreement

All State of Search speakers agree to the following:

You are deemed to accept the following terms unless you notify Dallas Fort Worth Search Engine Marketing Association (DFWSEM) within five business days after this confirmation was emailed to you.

By agreeing to speak or participate in a DFWSEM event (DFWSEM, State of Search, or others), you agree that:

  • Your final presentation will be submitted using official event presentation template where such a template is provided by DFWSEM.
  • DFWSEM has the right to record your presentation in audio and video formats and make use of those recordings, or transcripts of your presentation, for promotional or commercial purposes.
  • DFWSEM has the right to make available slides and supporting materials from your presentations to attendees of its conferences and webcasts, such as by offering material for download, via printed handouts, through online replays or other formats.
  • This agreement also grants DFWSEM the right to use your name, voice, image and biography to promote its events.

The rights above are granted on a non-exclusive, worldwide basis. Non-exclusive means that you retain the rights to your material to make use of for your own purposes, as you see fit. If you object to any of the above granted rights, you must notify DFWSEM of your objection at [email protected] within five business days of the date this notice was issued.

DFWSEM will accommodate reasonable requests. We are aware that some speakers have concerns that providing digital presentation documents may make it easier for others to reproduce their work without credit. We publish electronic versions (in PDF format) which can be less easily replicated by others. The intent of this agreement is not to limit your rights but to protect the basic legal rights DFWSEM must secure.

You warrant that your presentation and any other material you submit are your original work, that publication will not infringe on the rights of others, and that you have full power to grant this license.

Should your presentation or other materials require permission from another person or entity for use by DFWSEM, you warrant that you have obtained that permission from the copyright proprietor consistent with this Agreement.

DFWSEM is not obliged to publish your presentation or other materials.

Once again, thank you for participating in this DFWSEM event! We look forward to working with you and encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding your participation.
