I understand that I will receive no refunds or reimbursement for my cancellation of a Live Event registration. If I cancel my registration at least two weeks before the scheduled event, EEFx will use its best efforts to transfer my registration to another scheduled Live Event. I understand that such transfer is entirely contingent on space availability and scheduling. If EEFx cancels the EEFx event for any reason, it will provide me with a ticket to another Live Event. I agree that in no event will EEFx be responsible to me for reimbursing travel or related consequential costs associated with EEFx’s cancellation of the event.
All events are subject to cancellation.

In such a case we will provide a registration ticket to an alternative Live Event.)
