Cancellation Policy and Disclaimer

Cancellation and Replacement Policy

Any registration amendments and/or cancellations must be notified in writing to the UK Cochrane Centre. Conference registration cancellations received in writing before 31st March 2015 (for Standard registration as well as Charity/Consumer/Student registration) & 31st January 2015 (for Early Bird registration), will be refunded in full, minus an administration fee of £20.00. Cancellations received after that date will not receive refunds. Substitute delegates are welcome without penalty, but please advise Holly Millward or Carly Mole at the UK Cochrane Centre of any name changes.

In the event that the meeting is cancelled by the Organisers, or by any reason of any factor outside the control of the Organisers or Convention Managers, the conference cannot take place; the amount of the Registration Fee shall be refunded, minus an administration fee of £20.00. The liability of the Organisers or Convention Managers shall be limited to that refund and neither shall be liable for any other loss, cost or expense, however caused, incurred or arising. In particular, neither the Organisers nor Convention Managers shall be liable to refund any travel or hotel costs incurred by delegates or their organisations. It follows that delegates and accompanying partners are advised to take out comprehensive insurance, including travel insurance.

Non payment of any invoice issued will be passed onto a collection agency. Any collection costs incurred will be the responsibility of the debtor.

In particular, neither the Organisers nor Convention Management can accept any liability for losses arising from the provision or non-provision of services provided by hotel companies or transport operators. Nor can the Organisers or Convention Management accept liability for losses suffered by reason of war including threat of war, riots and civil strife, terrorist activity, natural disasters, weather, fire, flood, drought, technical, mechanical or electrical breakdown within any premises visited by delegates and/or partners in connection with the meeting, nor losses suffered by reason of industrial disputes, governmental action, registrations or technical problems which may affect the services provided in connection with the meeting.
