This booking will be governed by the following terms and conditions. The terms and conditions listed below are non-negotiable and exhibitors are requested to read them carefully before registering. Continuing the registration process means that the terms and conditions are duly accepted and represent a binding contract.
Terms for Exhibiting and Participation
The fair’s floor plan is set up according to the organizers’ plan and the exhibitor cannot ask for the floor plan or to have a preferred location at the fair.

The exhibitors should set up their booth, physically or virtually depending on the case, no later than one hour before the opening time and leave no later than the closing time of the fair. The exhibitor set-up time is also marked on the fair itinerary.
In case of an event hosted online (Virtual event), the exhibitors should set-up the virtual booth in accordance with guidelines set forth by third party suppliers of the online platform for the event. A clear communication channel between the third party supplier and the Exhibitor will be set up by the Organizer.

Only the institution’s and participant’s names on the registration form will be allowed to be displayed on the stand. The exhibitors should exhibit their services or products in their booths only, sampling outside the booth area is not allowed. Materials are not allowed to be stuck on other premises (toilets, venue walls, registration area etc.). Exhibitor’s materials should not reach more than 2.5m high.

GDPR and collection of visitor personal details
The Organizer enables the visitors of the events to share their personal contact details securely and efficiently with each of the Exhibitors. The system collects the personal details of all visitors at the event prior to entering the exhibition area. When a visitor wishes to show their interest in a particular Exhibitor they have the choice of providing a secure barcode that links to their personal profile to be scanned by the exhibitor or, in the case of a virtual event, interacting with the exhibitor on either chat, message or download of materials. As a result of these actions (scanning visitors’ barcodes, online interaction etc.), the Exhibitor is entitled to receive a full list of all records containing the personal, academic and demographic details of the visitors subject of the interaction. The list of records will be available for download in .csv format after each of the editions of the event.
The Organizer is responsible for informing all visitors about the data protection measures in place and about the system used to secure communication with the Exhibitors. The Organizer will inform all visitors about the data transfer of their personal details as a result of the interaction with exhibitors at the events with the purpose of being saved and processed by the Exhibitor according to their own privacy and data protection policies.
The Exhibitors are solely responsible to inform visitors as to their own privacy and data protection policies once the visitors have initiated the transfer of their personal profile details using the system provided by the Organizer. The Organizer cannot be held accountable for any data breaches occurring after this transfer has been made and/or as a result of any Exhibitors’ inability to properly inform/collect/process/store personal data.
The Organizer agrees to allow the use of audio-video materials recorded at the events for further promotion of future EDUCATIVA events. The audio-video materials include but are not limited to: photos of the booth design and brand, photos of representatives, interviews of representatives, testimonials etc.
The safety measures during the exhibition will be the responsibility of the Organizer. The organizer will not, however, be accountable for any lost or stolen personal objects during the exhibition. Any declaration of theft that needs the authorities’ intervention should be made on the same day with incident.
In case of litigation, the relationship emerging from the fairs organized by the Organizer shall be bound to the jurisdiction of the Organizer and all disputes arising between the Organizer and the Exhibitor shall be interpreted in accordance with Romanian law.
