If you have any queries relating to these terms and conditions or need to communicate with us please contact customerservice@AltAssets.net
Conferences, summits, forums and other events (collectively “Events”) are also subject to the following terms and conditions:
(I) Delegate Fee
The delegate fee entitles the registered delegate to attend all delegate sessions and networking refreshment breaks, including lunch and any cocktail reception associated with the Event.
By completing the registration process you agree to pay the full amount related to your individual registration. Payment in full must be made prior to the event taking place. Payments can be made by American Express, Visa, MasterCard, company cheque or by wire transfer. If registering four (4) weeks or less prior to the event, delegates MUST pay by credit card.
(III) Cancellation Policy\r\n\r\nFor the purpose of these Terms & Conditions a purchase is made at the point in time when a delegate place is registered on the Site or requested by email or in writing (“Purchase”). Any cancellation must be made within fourteen (14) days of Purchase AND must be received more than thirty (30) days prior to the Event. Such cancellations will be subject to a charge of 50 % of the fee already paid or the full delegate rate, whichever is the lower. All cancellations must be made in writing by letter, fax or email (and proof of receipt will be required) to the Finance Director at our office address on our ‘Contact’ page, if by letter or fax, or to customerservice@AltAssets.net, if by email. We regret that no refunds will be made for cancellations made within thirty (30) days of the event or after fourteen (14) days of Purchase and there will be no exceptions to this policy.
Once a Purchase has been made for a delegate place at an Event full payment is due regardless of whether the purchaser, or any other person who replaces them as a substitute from the same organisation, attends the Event or not.
(V) Substitution Policy
Substitutions within organisations may be arranged if AltAssets is notified in writing at least seven (7) days in advance of the Event and only if AltAssets provides written approval for the substitution. No external substitutions may be made and under no circumstances may registrations be shared.
In the unlikely event that AltAssets postpones an Event, delegate payments already received will be credited to a future AltAssets Event, on a date convenient to the attendee and will not have an expiration date.
(VII) Force Majeure
If for any reason beyond AltAssets’ reasonable control (including but not limited to: strikes; acts, regulations or orders of governmental authorities; civil disorder; disasters; acts of terrorism; acts of war; acts of God) we believe it is not possible to run an Event, AltAssets will not be liable to repay any fees relating to delegate fees, sponsorships, exhibition packages or other sales for the Event.
(VIII) Travel and accommodation
AltAssets is not accountable for booking accommodation and transfers to and from the conference venue and will not accept liability for any public or individual transport disruption or deferral. In such circumstances, our standard cancellation policy applies.
(IX) Speakers and agenda
Please be aware that circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or agenda topics. AltAssets reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or agenda topics if necessary.
AltAssets makes no guarantee about the number of attendees at each Event and makes no guarantee about the relative distribution of attendees by company type, job title, role or any other categorisation.
By registering for an Event, you are agreeing that all pictures, videos and transcripts taken at the Event are the property of AltAssets and can be used for future promotional and marketing activities.
Photographs and video footage (“Photography”) of those attending an Event, may be taken by, or on behalf of, AltAssets, or one of AltAssets’ event partners (together, “Event Partners”) for use in all and any media in Event Partners’ publications or promotional materials (“Materials”) or on Event Partners’ websites. Event Partners will try to ensure that attendees are aware that they have been photographed or filmed. However attendees agree this may not always be possible. Event Partners may edit or alter Photography in any way which Event Partners deem appropriate. Photography will only be used in a manner which Event Partners, in their reasonable opinion, consider to be in good taste and will be unlikely to cause offence. If, however, you see Photography of yourself which you object to, please contact customerservice@AltAssets.net and Event Partners will be requested to remove the Photography from their websites, or cease use of the Photography in future publications of Event Partner Materials. By purchasing a ticket for an Event, you grant Event Partners permission to use any Photography of yourself for the purposes described above and you do not object to Event Partners storing copies of such Photography along with your contact details where these are provided by you.
(XIII) AltAssets event online networking tools
By registering for an Event, you are agreeing that your details (including, but not limited to, your name, job title and organisation) can be used when setting up AltAssets online event networking tools. The online networking tools include the AltAssets LP-GP Network (www.lpgp.net) and the AltAssets private equity App. You may request to have your profile removed from the AltAssets online event networking tools at any time.
