Terms of Use

The following terms and conditions apply between the person, firm, company or other entity when purchases a ticket or registers (on the registration form) for any event or conference or participates in any survey of procedure organized by TSOMOKOS S.A. (hereafter also as Company), a company with its registered office at 21 Amerikis str., 10672, Athens, Greece with registration no. 150496001000, for delegate registrations for the event specified on your invoice ("Event").
By submitting your registration to attend any Event, conference, survey or procedure you agree to comply and be bound by these terms to the exclusion of all other terms. These Terms and Condition are applicable at any event organized by TSOMOKOS S.A. and you should read them carefully. TSOMOKOS S.A., reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time. Any amended terms and conditions will be posted on Company's website or each event’s registration pages.
These terms and Conditions apply also to the speakers and all other persons that are present during any event organized by the Company.
If you do not agree to be bound by these terms the Company will be unable to accept your registration.

1. Your registration is offered by the Company to attend an Event which is subject to Company's acceptance in writing (which may include (without limitation) email). A binding contract between Company and you will only be formed when written confirmation of acceptance ("Confirmation" or "Confirmed") is sent by Company to you (whether or not it is received) using the contact details you provided at the time of registration. You should contact Company if you have not received Confirmation within 5 days of your registration, but in any event if Confirmation is not sent within 14 days of Company receiving your registration, your registration will be deemed to be accepted unless Company notify you otherwise. Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse to accept your registration.

2. You will pay Company the fees specified in your booking form for the Event ("your fees"). Payment of your fees must be received in full and in cleared funds by Company in accordance with Company's payment terms (from time to time in force) but in any event not later than 12 hours before the Event. If payment of your fees in full is not received before the Event, Company may (at its sole discretion) either require such payment as a condition of your entry to the Event or refuse you entry to the Event. No refunds of any proportion of your fees already paid (if any) will be made and any balance of your fees will remain due and payable where entry to an Event is refused under this Condition 2
3. All discounts can only be applied at the time of registration and discounts cannot be combined. All discounts are subject to Company's approval. Discounts for group registrations are only valid for the number of delegates specified on your booking form. If the number of delegates that actually attends the Events is (for any reason) less than the number specified in your booking form, then Company may (at its sole discretion) change the fees charged to reflect the number of delegates that actually attend the Event in line with Company's published prices then in force. Any additional sums payable to us as a result shall be paid in line with Condition 2.

4. Prices for each Event are correct at the time of publication. Company reserves the right to change the prices at any time but changes will not affect registrations which have already been confirmed by Company. The applicable sales tax of the country where the event is taking place is also subject to change and you will be charged the applicable sales tax at the time you make your booking.
5. It is the intent of the parties that Company will receive payment of your fees net of all applicable taxes, including without limitation, sales, VAT, service or withholding taxes ("Taxes"), all of which shall be paid solely by you. If and to the extent that any Taxes are levied upon, or found to be applicable to, the whole or any portion of the payment of your fees, the amount of such payment shall be increased by an amount necessary to compensate for the Taxes (including any amount necessary to "gross up" for Taxes levied on the increase itself).

6. You may cancel your registration (including hotel reservation, if applicable) in accordance with this Condition 6. You will receive a refund of your fees paid to Company (if any): (i) if you cancel your registration 20 days or more before the Event, subject to an administration charge equivalent to 10% of the total amount of your fees plus VAT. The Company regrets that the full amount of your fee remains payable in the event that your cancellation is 20 days or less before the Event or if you fail to attend the Event. If a cancellation changes the entitlement to a multi-registration discount, the lowest value registration will be cancelled first. No cancellations are accepted once any part of a single or multi registration party has accessed any pre-event networking or partnering facilities. All cancellations must be sent directly to the Company by email. You acknowledge that the refund of your fees in accordance with Condition 6 is your sole remedy in respect of any cancellation of your registration by you and all other liability is expressly excluded.
7. Substitutions with employees from your organization are subject to approval from the company as delegate-attendee registrations are issued for your personal use only and cannot be shared with any person during the Event. You may not purchase registrations as agent for any third party or sell or otherwise transfer your registration to others, or exploit the registration commercially or non-commercially in any way. Doing so will void the ticket and the ticket holder will not gain entry into the event. The tickets purchased (including hotel rooms if applicable) are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be resold under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition. Where there has been any resale or attempted resale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), Company holds the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect. In certain cases, free or subsidized tickets may be offered by the Company, in accordance with the terms and conditions of TSOMOKOS S.A. and especially to the terms of this Condition and also Condition 14. Especially for the Speakers and Moderators of each Event, a discount or a free pass may be awarded according to the Company's decision and these free tickets are also subjected to the Terms and Conditions, which apply to the other participants-attendees.

If you promptly notify Company in writing before the date of the Event that you do not wish to attend the rearranged Event or if Company elects not to rearrange the Event then you will (as your sole remedy) be entitled, at your discretion, to receive either a credit note or a refund in respect of your fees received by Company.

10. Where a Force Majeure Event has or may have (in Company's sole discretion) an adverse impact on: (i) the ability of Company to hold the Event at the planned venue or on the planned date; or (ii) the Event generally, then Company shall be entitled but not obliged (in its sole discretion) to either: (i) provide alternative facilities or venue for the Event; and/or (ii) reschedule the Event.
