Meet-up sponsorship

Local Investor Guides can partner with businesses to make their meet-ups more fun and less expensive for attendees. A business might agree to sponsor a meet-up by providing goods or services (for example, a discount to rent a venue, or complimentary snacks). However, it’s important that sponsorships don’t influence contributions on Google Maps or any online map providers. Below are the guidelines that Local Investor Guides should follow when hosting a sponsored meet-up:

  • Local Investor Guides should not accept sponsorship in exchange for contributions on Google Maps or any online map providers. For example, you shouldn’t agree to write positive reviews about a business that sponsors a meet-up — or negative reviews about its competitors. This applies to the Local Investor Guide hosting the meet-up and to all attendees. Attendees should not be required to do anything for or on behalf of the business in order to participate in the meet-up.

  • Local Investor Guides should not accept any form of payment in exchange for hosting a meet-up in partnership with a business.

  • If a meet-up is sponsored, the host should mention that fact in their meet-up description. For example: “Sonu's Ice Cream Shop is sponsoring this meet-up. They'll be providing ice cream for us all to enjoy. They understand that none of us is promising contributions of any kind to the business in exchange for sponsoring the meet-up.”

Photographic, audio and video recording release

By attending any Event, you understand and agree on behalf of yourself and your guest that you consent to and authorize the use and reproduction by www.BerniciaBlockchain.com, or anyone authorized by www.BerniciaBlockchain.com, of any and all photographs, audio, or video recordings that have been taken of you during the course of an Event for any purpose, without compensation of any kind.
