Speaker Agreement

If I am selected as an AppSphere 2016 speaker, in consideration of receiving a free conference pass to AppDynamics, Inc.’s sponsored program entitled AppDynamics AppSphereTM (the “Program”), I, the undersigned, hereby grant AppDynamics, Inc. and its affiliates, assigns, successors in interest and legal representatives (collectively, "AppDynamics") the irrevocable right to use and disseminate my name (or any fictional name), picture, portrait, photograph, video recording, likeness, voice, sounds and verbal statements in all forms and in all media and in all manners, including any composite or distorted representations or edits of the same, in connection with my appearance in, and attendance at, the Program, including for the advertising and promotion of the Program.

I understand that I will be responsible for for my travel and hotel expenses.

Further, I hereby grant to AppDynamics the right to reproduce any materials produced for my presentation (the “Materials”) to accompany any live event at the Program, and hereby release AppDynamics and others authorized by AppDynamics to use said Materials from any claims, liabilities and expenses that I now have or may hereafter have by reason of such use.

I hereby waive any right of inspection or approval of the uses, which may be made of the Materials or of my appearance in, or attendance at, the Program. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AppDynamics acknowledges that I have the right to request that it promptly cease any such use, if, in my reasonable good faith judgment, I determine that such use has adversely affected my reputation. I hereby acknowledge that AppDynamics is relying on this permission potentially at substantial cost to AppDynamics and hereby agree not to assert any claim of any nature whatsoever against anyone relating to the exercise of the permissions granted hereunder.
