BBM reserves the right to make changes to the conference programme until the day on which the conference takes place.
Impediment to participation in a conference
The Customer's registration for participation at BBM's conference is binding. The Customer may, however, assign the right to participate at a conference to another person, provided BBM is notified thereof before the conference takes place. However, in order to be entitled to participate at the conference, such person must also personally confirm that he or she has read, understood, and undertakes to be bound by the Terms and Conditions, including BBM's personal data policy.

As a consequence of the Customer's registration for and participation in the service constituted by BBM's conference, BBM and the Bonnier Group will store and process the personal data which the Customer provides to enable BBM to perform its undertakings pursuant to this agreement, and for marketing, statistics, and analysis, as well as for internal administrative purposes in accordance with the provisions of the personal data policy which constitutes a part of this agreement.
BBM is entitled to cancel the conference if the carrying out of the conference is affected by an event beyond BBM’s control, such as labour dispute, fire, acts of authorities, war, natural disaster or course leader’s sudden illness. BBM is also entitled to cancel the conference if BBM due to such event assess that the carrying out of the conference may be of risk to humans’ life or health.
Should BBM cancel the conference due to any such event, you may either choose to participate in another conference for the same fee or choose to have the fee refunded. You will not be granted any compensation in excess of the refunding of the participation fee.
