This site (“the VIRT Site”), which is operated by Global Health Strategies, LLC (“GHS,” “we” or “us”), provides you and every other use of the VIRT Site (each a “User”) a comprehensive crowd-sourced database of listings of conferences and other events (“Events”) on diverse topics of global concern, including COVID-19, climate, economic opportunity, and sustainable development (“Event Listings”), copies of materials that were displayed or distributed at or in connection with such Events (“Event Materials”), and/or audiovisual recordings of all or part of such Events (“Event Recordings”). Event Listings, Event Materials, and Event Recordings will be referred to collectively as “Listing Material.” Once you have set up a user account (a “User Account”), you may review Listing Material uploaded by others and submit your own Listing Material to the VIRT Site for our review.
