The following terms and conditions cover newsletters, directories and reports, conferences, payment and pricing policy.

Newsletters

Subscription rates are for one year from the date of the order and cover all published editions of the newsletter for a 12 month period. There is an additional charge of £25 per year for postage.

If a new subscriber is not satisfied with the newsletter to which they have recently subscribed and cancel their subscription within the first three months, we will refund their subscription payment in full. A cancellation for the same reason between 3-11 months will attract a refund of the balance of the subscription payment made.

No part of any of the newsletters may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or translated in any form or by any means – electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise – without the express permission of the publishers.

While every effort is made to check the information given in the newsletters, the authors, editors and publishers cannot accept any responsibility for any loss or damage arising out of, or caused by the use of, such information.

Opinions expressed in the newsletters are those of the individual authors and not necessarily those of the publishers.

 

Directories, Reports and Other Publications

Payment in full is to be made at the time of the order and before despatch.

All prices for publications include post & packaging at standard rates using postal and airmail services unless otherwise stated. Courier delivery is available at a cost to be agreed by contacting our order department at the time of placing the order.

Conferences

Reconnaissance International reserves the right to alter or amend the location, dates and content of any or all of its conferences and trade shows, in which case it will notify all participants as soon as possible. In the event of cancellation of an event by Reconnaissance International, we will endeavour to inform all participants as soon as possible. All event fees paid will be reimbursed in full, or the payment will be transferred in full to another Reconnaissance event. Reconnaissance International shall not accept liability for any consequential loss and shall have no liability to reimburse any other costs that may have been incurred, including transport costs, accommodation etc.

Conference sponsorships will be final and reserved on receipt of full payment. All sponsorship payments are non-refundable. Exhibit space will be final and confirmed on receipt of full payment. Exhibitors’ payments will be refunded at the rate of 50% of the full invoice value, if notice of non-attendance is given in writing 8 weeks or more before the start of the conference. No refund of exhibitors’ payments will be made if cancellation is within 8 weeks of the start of the conference.

Conference delegates should pay their fees at the time of booking. Early booking discounts will only apply if payment is made within the period to which the discount applies. Delegates paying their fees at the time of the conference may incur an additional administrative fee. No entry will be allowed under any circumstances unless all fees have been paid in full.

Conference delegate fees will be refunded less a 25% handling charge if a cancellation is received in writing by Reconnaissance 6 weeks or more before the start of the event. After this date no refunds will be made. The only exception to this policy is that a full refund will be made if the delegate provides to Reconnaissance an original document from the competent authorities refusing the delegate a visa or other legally required travel document.

Substitutions of delegates from the same organisation can be made at any time by notifying Reconnaissance International in writing.

All costs incurred, which are not part of the services offered by the conference organizers or their agents, by sponsors, exhibitors and delegates as a result of their attendance at a conference are the responsibility of the sponsors, exhibitors and delegates and not Reconnaissance International Ltd or any associated company.

Payment

Payment for all products and services offered by the company can be made by cheque (check), credit/debit card or bank transfer (any bank charges are to be paid by the customer).

For newsletters and publications, all payments will be in pounds sterling. For conferences, payments will be in pounds sterling or euros or dollars, depending upon the location.

Pricing Policy

It is Reconnaissance International’s policy to publish prices as early as possible before publication or the date of an event. However should there be any unexpected variances in exchange rates between publishing our prices and the date of an event or publication, we reserve the right to change or amend our prices in one or all of the currencies in which we publish our prices. However, once a deposit is made, no increase in price will be made, despite any variance in exchange rate.

In some of the countries where we hold conferences, VAT is applicable. This will be charged in addition to conference fees at the rate prevailing in that country. Delegates can subsequently reclaim the VAT from the relevant tax authorities.
