Cancellation Policy

You may cancel your registration until 29th October 2018, and JEP pledges to fully refund you the event payment minus a €30 administration processing fee and bank transfer fees when applicable. After this date, JEP is NOT obliged to reimburse anyone for any reason whatsoever.* Reimbursement will not be given even for a medical emergency. 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 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 29th October 2018, and we are able to find a replacement, you will be refunded the event payment and 30% and bank transfer fees when applicable until Thursday 22nd November 2018All cancellations after this date 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.
