Cancellation Policy

You may cancel your registration until April 4th, 2019, and ECJS pledges to fully refund you the event payment minus the flight cancellation fee (the full  payment unless the airline allows refund) +  €30 administration processing fee and bank transfer fees when applicable. After this date, ECJS & JEP is NOT obliged to reimburse anyone for any reason whatsoever.* Reimbursement will not be given even for a medical emergency. ECJS & JEP will have already booked, ordered and paid for everything for you by this late date. We will not be able to receive refunds for any of these purchases. Please understand that ECJS & JEP is a non-profit organization. We invest over €100 for each member to attend the event beyond the member fee that was paid. With your cancellation we lose this investment as well.

This is our cancellation policy and we apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

*If you cancel after April 4th, 2019, and we are able to find a replacement, you will be refunded the event payment minus the flight cancellation fee (the full fee) and 30% and bank transfer fees when applicable until Wednesday 8th May 2019All cancellations after Wednesday 8th May 2019 will get no refund regardless if the place is re-sold or not. We will do our best to replace your spot once we have sold out the event. The reason for this deduction is due to the risk we are taking, the longer administration process involved in changing your booking, and often involves more time and expensive phone calls trying to find a replacement.
