Refund and Cancellation Policy
All purchases of tickets for conferences and events are non-refundable in their entirety. Your ticket remains the property of Devex and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission refused at any time upon a refund of the printed registration price. In the unlikely event of cancellation of a conference or event the liability of Devex is limited to the share of paid registration fees that remains after credit card and payment processing fees have been incurred and deducted. It is strictly forbidden for any company, organization or attendee to attempt to host or organise any event in conjunction with, contiguous to or purporting to be related to Devex World or its affiliates without the express prior permission and co-operation of Devex. In the event of breach of these terms any tickets purchased by the organiser and their affiliates will be rendered null and void. Devex reserves their right to take such legal action including a claim for damages as may be appropriate. The tickets purchased are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be re-sold or transferred for commercial gain under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition. Where there has been any re-sale or attempted re-sale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), we reserve the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect. We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket broker or tout. Devex reserves the right to refuse admission to any event or conference for any behaviour, which it deems unacceptable, or for breach of the terms and conditions. Devex will not be responsible for any tickets that are lost or stolen. The unauthorised use of photographic and recording equipment at events and conferences is prohibited. You consent to film and sound recording as attendees at any event or conference. Devex and its subsidiaries will not be liable for any loss injury or damage to any person or property howsoever caused (save for death or personal injury as a result of Devex’s negligence or for any other type of liability that cannot by law be excluded or limited.) Devex will not be liable for the granting of any VISAs that are required to attend any event or conference. In the event that an attendee’s VISA is not granted tickets will not be refunded for any event or conference. If an individual seeks a refund on general attendee tickets that were purchased before their startup ticket was purchased, Devex will not grant a full refund when the general attendee ticket price has increased beyond the startup ticket price. Name changes will be facilitated free of charge up to 90 days prior to the commencement of the event. No name changes will be facilitated 7 days prior to the commencement of the event and the ticket price will be forfeited. For questions about registration or assistance with any registration problems, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EVENT CANCELLATION, POSTPONEMENT & SUBSTITUTION POLICY
Devex is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation or postponement of an event. Devex shall assume no liability whatsoever in the circumstances that an event is cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to a fortuitous event, Act of God, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of an event impracticable, illegal or impossible. For purposes of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include, but not be limited to: war, fire, labour strike, extreme weather or other emergency. Please note that while speakers and topics are confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. As such, Devex reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or topics if necessary without any liability to you whatsoever. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible.
Once a successful purchase transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic soft-copy via email to the email address nominated by the purchaser. For some ticket types it may be necessary to complete required information – such as attendee name – before the tickets can be issued. The ticket acts as a receipt for the transaction and can be used to redeem entry at the event listed on the ticket. A printed hard-copy ticket or an electronic soft-copy ticket detailing the reference number can be used to register at the event.
