UHNWI does not wish to receive any confidential or proprietary ideas, suggestions, materials, or information (collectively, “Unsolicited Materials”) via our Site, email, or other means. All Unsolicited Materials will become and remain UHNWI’s property.
If you participate in UHNWI activities (e.g., a conference), you acknowledge and agree that UHNWI may take photographs and make audio/video recordings of you (collectively, “Photographs”) and you irrevocably give UHNWI the worldwide, royalty-free right to use the Photographs (and your likeness and voice depicted in them and your name) on UHNWI’s Site and in other materials and media now known or later developed in furtherance of UHNWI’s mission and any related purpose.
You irrevocably release (on behalf of yourself and your successors, assigns, heirs, family members, and executors and, as applicable, any organization of which you are a representative), UHNWI and its directors, officers, employees, service providers, and agents from any claim of any nature that you have or ever may have arising out of your use of our Site, services, and Site Content and our use of your User Content and your name, likeness, voice, and other identifiable traits in connection with User Content and as otherwise described in these Terms. If you are a California resident, you waive rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” If you reside in any other jurisdiction that places similar restrictions on a general release, you waive such restrictions to the maximum extent permissible under the applicable law.
Site Content is provided as a source of general information. You should always seek legal, financial or other advice from a professional with full knowledge of your specific circumstances when making any decisions. Laws may vary so Site Content may not be relevant or accurate for all states, countries or other jurisdictions.

These Terms, which include our Privacy Notice, are the complete agreement between you and UHNWI regarding your use of our Site, Site Content (including User Content), services and related activities and supersede all other prior agreements (oral or written) regarding its subject matter except that you will also be governed by any: (A) Supplemental Terms we provide in connection with particular features, services, products, and activities; and (B) additional agreements we enter into with respect to specific activities (e.g., submitting an article).
