Booking Terms and Conditions 2022

OVERVIEW

1) Your registration constitutes a legally binding contract and by confirming your booking, you are legally obliged to make payment for all fees as applicable by your registration. The delegate fee includes access to copies of the presentations via PDF and YouTube.

2) Full payment is required to be made by Credit/Debit card at the time of registration. In some circumstances, a BACS transfer can be set up to be paid alongside a PO within 3 working days of an invoice being raised. In order to pay by this method, please contact secretariat@ofc.org.uk The Oxford Farming Conference reserves the right to refuse entry or to cancel the registration for any delegate who has not paid in full by the due date.

3) Changes to your booking, including cancellations and replacement delegates, must be notified to us in accordance with the cancellation policy.

4) The organisers reserve the right to alter the programme, including the date and time of the event and its speakers, without prior notice. In the unlikely event of the conference being cancelled, the organisers will refund in full all registration fees only but accept no further liability for the delegate costs or losses incurred.

5) For online content, the organisers reserve the right to change the software platform without prior notice. The OFC takes no responsibility for the compatibility of the delegate's operating systems with the conference software platform or for the sufficiency of the delegate's internet connectivity.

6) If the conference takes place but you are unable to attend whole or part for any reason, the terms of the Cancellation Policy apply. For the avoidance of doubt, delegates registering as Scholars will not receive a refund if they are unable to attend both the Scholar's Day and Conference for any reason beyond the Oxford Farming Conference's control.

7) If the physical element of the event is cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, and the decision is taken to move the conference to digital-only, the transfer of your tickets will be done by the Secretariat with any difference in fees refunded back to you. Unless the Secretariat is notified otherwise, we will automatically move you across to a digital ticket. Cancellations will apply as per the below cancellation policy.

7) The Oxford Farming Conference records all proceedings. Delegates consent for their questions and comments to be included in all documents and videos based on the event.

8) Any delegates wishing to take photographs or make audio or video recordings of any part of the event must first obtain permission from The Oxford Farming Conference with as much notice as possible, principally as a courtesy to speakers and other participants whose agreement will be sought. Delegates agree not to publish any portion of the proceedings they may have recorded without permission. If permission is granted this is on the strict understanding that only brief extracts will be used, that they will not be used in a misleading context and that the speaker and any organisation they represent, and the OFC are acknowledged.
