Attendee Badge Usage: Attendee badges must be worn at all times in Event areas.
Photography, Recording, and Videotaping: You may not record audio or video of sessions at the Event. Payments Canada allows cameras on the show floor. You may take pictures within the show for purposes of company or annual reports, company media pieces, marketing materials, etc.
Denial of Admission: Payments Canada reserves the right to deny admission to anyone for any reason.
Payment: Applicable fees are due upon registration. If payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, Payments Canada may refuse to admit you and shall have no resulting liability.
Taxes: Fees may be subject to sales tax, value added tax, or other taxes and duties, which, if applicable, will be charged to you in addition to the fees. Attendee Fees are Nonrefundable: Payments Canada does not refund fees. Payments Canada will not charge fees to carry over registrations or fees to subsequent events.
No Retroactive Fees Adjustments: Once you have registered, your fees will not be adjusted downward based on any sponsorship, discount or any other reason.
Discount and Special Rates: All determinations of special rates are in the sole discretion of Payments Canada. Even if you meet the definition and requirements of a special rate, Payments Canada reserves the right to not provide you any special rate. Only one discount code can be used on any one ticket unless otherwise stated.
Discount Codes On-site: No discount codes will be honoured for on-site registration.
Discount and Special Rate Disqualification: If you register using a discount or special rate that is not applicable to you, you hereby give Payments Canada the right to adjust the registration fee upon notice that Payments Canada does not agree with your selection and use of the special rate. In such circumstances, the amount originally paid will be subtracted from the price of a full event pass (including all applicable taxes and fees) to determine the balance due by you prior to being granted admission. Any amount initially paid by you will remain nonrefundable.
No Subsequent Speaker Refunds: Paid attendees that later join as speakers are not entitled to a refund of attendee fees paid.
Additional Speaker Fees: Session hosts are responsible for any costs associated with speakers they have invited to their session if not otherwise explicitly stated by Payments Canada.
No Conversion to Sponsor Pass: Registered attendees cannot convert their passes to complimentary sponsor passes.
