For credit/debit card bookings your booking is confirmed once you have completed the online booking process, paid by credit/debit card and cleared funds have been credited to our account.  In the event that there are insufficient funds on your account to meet the booking value, we may not honour your booking.  We reserve the right to charge you for any charges incurred where insufficient funds are available.  You represent and warrant that the information you have provided re your booking is correct.

Full payment of the applicable price advertised is to be paid at the time of booking or within 30 days of an invoice being issued. All costs attract the standard rate of VAT if applicable at the time of purchase.  Purchase order numbers should be provided at the time of booking.

Refunds for cancellation before the event will be subject to deductions as per our terms and conditions.  Refunds for cancellation after the event will not be paid. Alternative delegates can be substituted for those already registered prior to or at the event at no extra charge.  

A booking may be cancelled after payment has been made. Cancellations must be communicated to IGEM in writing and we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee as follows:
