BlackBerry collects personal information during the registration process such as name, mailing address, email address and credit card or other payment

exhibitors "scan" their entrance badges at the exhibitors' booth to collect their personal information such as name, address, phone number and email. By

companies, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of the information by BlackBerry or its service providers on BlackBerry's behalf: (i) to
administer registration, participation and access to the Conference event(s); (ii) to contact you after the event(s) for event evaluation purposes and for
subsequent event notifications and registrations; (iii) for BlackBerry's internal use, including without limitation, to: (a) understand and meet your needs
and preferences, (b) develop new and enhance existing services and product offerings, (c) manage and develop BlackBerry's business and operations, and (d)
to provide you with relevant information on BlackBerry and/or BlackBerry® products and/or services; and (iv) for the purposes set out in BlackBerry's
set out herein, BlackBerry will not disclose your personal information to third parties for marketing or other secondary purposes, although BlackBerry may
disclose aggregated, non-identifying data relating to the event for marketing or other purposes.
Registrants may access a portal via their My Account page in the registration system. By requesting information from third party vendors and sponsors
through that portal, Registrants consent to use of their personal information for the purpose of "follow-up" contact by sponsors, including but not limited
to direct mail, phone calls or email messages.
Once a Registrant's badge is scanned and/or Registrant provides information to third parties through the portal, BlackBerry does not have control over
what the exhibitor may do with his/her personal information. BlackBerry encourages Registrants to check with individual vendors and exhibitors
regarding their specific privacy policies and purposes for collecting Registrants' information when their badge is scanned at a booth. Any decision by
Registrant to share personal information with any vendor/exhibitor is the sole responsibility of the Registrant. BlackBerry is not responsible for
information provided by Registrants to vendors and/or exhibitors at any Conference Event or through the portal nor is BlackBerry liable for anything
done by vendors and/or exhibitors with such information.
(A) BlackBerry may film, photograph or audio record portions of the Conference, including lectures and interactions in common areas. These recordings may
be archived and used for educational and commercial purposes. By attending, Registrant consents to BlackBerry's global and perpetual use of his or her
name, photograph, image, likeness, recorded voice and statements ("Information") in whole or in part, in all media and/or distribution formats, now known
and hereafter developed for any lawful purpose, including but not limited to marketing, advertising, publicity, educational, sales, trade, and promotional
purposes, with no right of approval and no right to compensation. Registrant releases and discharges BlackBerry from and against any and all claims,
damages, costs and/or other liability arising from or relating to use of the Information. BlackBerry shall be the exclusive owner of any and all rights,
title and interest, including, without limitation, copyright, electronic and distribution rights, in and to any materials containing the Information
created by or on behalf of BlackBerry, in any form.

correct administrative information or typographical errors. BlackBerry reserves the right to restrict participation in the Conference and all associated
ancillary events at its sole discretion.

applicable therein. Each Party hereto irrevocably waives any objection on the grounds of venue, forum non-conveniens or any similar grounds and irrevocably
consents to service of process by mail or in any other manner permitted by applicable law and consents to the jurisdiction of the courts located in the
