TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF EVENTS
The following terms and conditions apply to all companies and or persons or other entities (“you”) that are attending any one day events (“Event”) organised by Karen Skidmore Limited (“we” or “us”). Please ensure you have read and understand the following:
1. Acceptance of terms and conditions
By completing the registration form and paying for a particular event, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions set out below (“Terms”) and they will be incorporated into the contract between us (“Contract”). You will ensure that your employees, partners, agents, contractors, subcontractors and any other person attending the Event on your behalf or for whom you have purchased tickets shall comply with these Terms. The Contract is formed when we send you your receipt.
The fee for attending the Event (“Registration Fee”) will be as stated on the registration form. All payments for the Registration Fee must be made in full at the time of completing the registration form, or as per our invoice, which ever has been outlined on the Event page. If payment is not received within 7 days of your registration, or as per our invoice, which ever has been outlined on the Event page, your registration will be cancelled and the payment of any refund will be at our complete discretion. Payment will be made via our merchant account provider and you consent to us passing your necessary details to the merchant account provider and to them processing necessary information about you. We reserve the right to run price promotions as we think fit.
All tickets for the Event shall be non-refundable within 4 weeks of the date of the Event, except as set out in paragraphs 4 and 5 below. However, if you are unable to attend the Event for any reason you may email us at [email protected] to request a transfer of your ticket to a substitute to attend the Event on your behalf, however this can not be guaranteed and is always subject to availability. There may be an alternative date in the future that we can offer to transfer your booking to, however this can not be guaranteed and is always subject to availability.
There may be extreme circumstances in which we need to cancel the Event. In such circumstances, we will provide you with a full refund of the amount of the Registration Fee that you have paid to us and we will make very effort to provide you with such refund within 14 days of the date of cancellation.
5. Postponement or change to venue
There may be extreme circumstances in which we need to postpone the Event or change the venue at which Event is to be held and if we do, we shall advise you of this as soon as we possibly can. If the postponement is for more than 1 month after the publicised date of the Event or the replacement venue is more than 50 miles away from the publicised venue, you may cancel your ticket by emailing us at [email protected] and we shall provide you with a full refund.
6. Force Majeure clause
A Party shall not be considered to be in default or breach of this Agreement, and shall be excused from performance or liability for damages to any other party, if and to the extent it shall be delayed in or prevented from performing or carrying out any of the provisions of this Agreement, arising out of or from any act, omission, or circumstance by or in consequence of any act of God, labor disturbance, sabotage, failure of suppliers of materials, act of the public enemy, war, invasion, insurrection, riot, fire, storm, flood, ice, earthquake, explosion, epidemic, breakage or accident to machinery or equipment or any other cause or causes beyond such Party’s reasonable control, including any curtailment, order, regulation, or restriction imposed by governmental, military or lawfully established civilian authorities, or by making of repairs necessitated by an emergency circumstance not limited to those listed above upon the property or equipment of the Party or property or equipment of others which is deemed under the Operational Control of the Party. A Force Majeure event does not include an act of negligence or Intentional Wrongdoing by a Party. Any Party claiming a Force Majeure event shall use reasonable diligence to remove the condition that prevents performance and shall not be entitled to suspend performance of its obligations in any greater scope or for any longer duration than is required by the Force Majeure event.
