IUGTE may (at its sole and absolute discretion) change the format, speakers, participants, content, venue location and program or any other aspect of the Event at any time and for any reason, whether or not due to a Force Majeure Event (as defined in clause 6), in each case without liability. This shall not entitle Customers to cancellation, nor to a reduction in the fees, nor to claims for damages.
IUGTE reserve the right to refuse admission to, or eject from the Event, any person at its sole and absolute discretion, including (without limitation) any person who fails to comply with these Terms and Conditions or who in the opinion of IUGTE represents a security risk, nuisance or annoyance to the running of the Event.

If by reason of any Force Majeure Event, IUGTE is delayed in or prevented from performing any of its obligations under these Terms, then such delay or non-performance shall not be deemed to be a breach of these Terms and no loss or damage shall be claimed by you by reason thereof. Our obligations shall be suspended during the period of the delay or non-performance and both parties shall each use reasonable endeavours to mitigate the effect of the Force Majeure Event.
In the event that the Organizer cancels the event by its subjective decision, there will be written notification to the Customer or the information will be published on the sources of the Organizer, such as the social media, website, program webpage and other publicly available sources. Cancellation of the Program, unless by reason of Force Majeure, will result in a refund of the Total Fee to the Customer.
In case of cancellation during activities, or failure to appear at an agreed date and time, a refund claim is excluded. If activities are confirmed, but the customer does not make use of the reservation, the Organizer reserves the right to claim the entire payment from the customer named on the registration.
The Customer may have a legal right to withdraw agreement without giving any reason within a 14 day withdrawal period. In the case of a contract for services, this withdrawal period expires 14 days from the day the contract was concluded. The contract is deemed concluded from the moment the Customer paid the fee for particular Service.
To meet the cancellation deadline, you must advise us that you wish to cancel before the cooling-off period has expired. You should be aware at the time of booking that, outwith the statutory 14 days cooling-off period, there is no automatic right to cancel, and there will be no refund of fees.

If the Customer exercises the right of withdrawal from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back if any, or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, if any, whichever is the earliest.
