Terms & Conditions of Registration
internationaltherapyevents.com is primarily a listing website. Most of the events promoted on this website are administered by their respective organisers. When you click on a ‘Book Now’ or ‘Register Now’ button and are subsequently taken to another website for booking or registration, you will proceed in line with the terms and conditions of the website where the booking or registration is completed. International Therapy Events is not responsible for the terms, conditions and processing of payment for these sites.
For some events the International Therapy Events website will handle the booking and payment processing. For such events the following terms and conditions of registration apply.
Events involve attendance at various times and on various dates for varying durations depending on the specific event.
We guarantee to provide all sessions as advertised in literature specific to each event. It is the delegate’s responsibility to attend every session. If a delegate misses any session it will not be possible to attend the same session on a different date or at a different venue.
Certificate of Attendance
Where specified, a certificate of attendance will be issued electronically, by email, to all delegates who attend an event, within one month of the event’s completion.
Any delegate who has a learning difficulty should bring this fact to our attention in advance of booking or registering. International Therapy Events will endeavour to support delegates with learning difficulties as best we can within our limitations.
Event specific information
Before paying any booking deposit or fee you must ensure that you have read all the information available regarding each event, including all published data on the International Therapy Events website at www.internationaltherapyevents.com and any downloadable literature which may be available for individual events. If you would prefer a printed copy of the event literature please contact our office of administration and we will arrange a copy for you. Having read all available information please ask any additional questions you may have by telephone or email. We want you to make the right choice.
The eligibility requirements for events vary. Please check that you meet the eligibility requirements outlined for each event before registering. It is each delegate’s individual responsibility to ensure that they meet any and all eligibility requirements prior to enrollment and failure to do so may result in a delegate’s inability to attend an event or to receive any certificate resulting from participation.
Withdrawal and non-completion
Delegates who fail to attend or complete any event will receive no refund of fees paid. For events which allow booking through the payment of a deposit, any deposits paid are non-refundable in all circumstances and any balance of fees which have been paid, either separately or as part of a single payment which includes the deposit and / or balance payment, may only be refunded in line with the advertised refund policy.
Places on events are non-transferrable in all instances.
Where there is a medical reason why a delegate is unable to attend an event where fees have already been paid, they may apply to International Therapy Events to defer their participation to a later date or alternative event. All deferral requests must be made in writing and be accompanied by relevant medical certification. The decision of International Therapy Events in all such matters is final.
Where written notice of non-participation is received, fees excluding the advertised deposit amount of the event where applicable will be refunded on the following scale:
- Six weeks before the event start date – 80% refund
- Five weeks before the event start date – 70% refund
- Four weeks before the event start date – 60% refund
- Less than four weeks before the event start date – 0% refund
Refunds will not be considered in any circumstances once an event has started.
When making an online booking our payment services are handled by PayPal. All transactions are processed in the currency shown for each event.
General conditions of registration
Event dates may be subject to change. If an event date changes you will be offered the opportunity to transfer your registration to the new date or to receive a full refund of any fees paid. Should an event be cancelled or postponed International Therapy Events will not be held responsible for any additional costs incurred by the delegate, including, but not limited to, transport or accommodation.
Once an event commences, although extremely unlikely, session dates and times may be subject to change.
Presenters for individual sessions on events, venues for events, individual sessions and event fees may be subject to change.
Any and all special offers and/or promotions offered in relation to registration for any event are always subject to availability. Although the International Therapy Events will always endeavour to meet all demands in relation to such offers, should there be no availability for any offer an alternative or cash amount will not be offered.
Certificates of attendance, where applicable, will only be awarded once a delegate has attended the event and once all fees have been paid and any evidence required for proof of eligibility has been submitted. It is important for potential delegates to understand that places on all events are available on a first come first served basis. If you feel quite certain that this is the event for you we would advise that you pay a deposit as soon as possible in order to avoid potential disappointment.
Delegate Contract Conditions
For delegates to get the best out of their event with International Therapy Events, we must both recognise that we owe obligations to each other. Our obligations require us to deliver and support your individual event and we want your experience with us to be positive and enriching. At the same time, we have to balance the interests and entitlements of many other delegates and our obligations to manage finite resources efficiently. Your obligations include pursuing your interests diligently, treating fellow delegates and staff with respect and abiding by International Therapy Events rules and regulations. The purpose of this section is to set out clearly and in detail what your and our obligations are. When you accept the offer of a place at an International Therapy Events event, a legal contract will come into existence between you and International Therapy Events. The terms and conditions of the contract are as set out below and your acceptance of a place is expressly subject to them.
1. Status and Legal Effect of these Conditions
- These conditions are the standard registration conditions for all delegates of International Therapy Events events (‘ITE’). These conditions form the contract between ITE and you, the delegate, with regard to your event at ITE (‘the Event’).
- No contract will exist until you accept an offer of a place either by registering online or by completing an event registration form.
- It is a condition of registration for the Event that you must complete the registration process when requested to do so by ITE.
- Breach of any of these conditions may give rise to action being taken against you under the regualtions of ITE (which in these conditions includes action under the Professional Suitability Procedures where they apply to you), and/or termination of this Agreement.
2. Event Delivery and Changes
- ITE agrees, subject to these conditions, to deliver the Event with reasonable care and skill and to make available to you learning support facilities and other services as it considers appropriate.
- ITE may make changes to the Event as it was originally described. These changes typically result from moving Events to new or improved buildings or sites; timetabling alterations; changes to optional sessions or other content changes which may result from staff turnover, delegtae numbers required to provide an adequate experience, improvements in technology or developments in the subject; changes to placements or changes to the Regulations to address requirements of external bodies or to make improvements. If such changes are required and may reasonably be expected to have a significant adverse effect on you, or ITE discontinues or merges the Event or combines it with other events, ITE will give you as much notice as it can, take your views into account; and take reasonable steps to minimise those effects.
- ITE will not be liable for any failure or delay in performing its obligations if the failure or delay is due to any cause beyond ITE’s reasonable control, which includes (without limitation), any governmental action, any act or omission of third parties which wholly or partly provide or fund the Event, political unrest, fire, flood, war, strike or other labour dispute, staff illness, public health concern, extreme weather conditions, natural disaster or act of God.
- ITE shall be entitled to end this Agreement immediately by notice in writing to you in the following circumstances:-
- if after the acceptance of an offer by you there is a change in your circumstances or if ITE becomes aware of information relating to you not previously known to it (including, but not limited to, information about criminal convictions or activity) which in the reasonable opinion of ITE makes it inappropriate for you to participate on the Event; or
- if, in the reasonable opinion of ITE, you have not provided ITE with all relevant information or you have supplied information which is not complete, authentic and accurate in all material respects.
3. Your Obligations
You agree to comply with your obligations under these conditions and the following:-
- that you have obtained all the information you need to make an informed choice of Event and ITE site at which it will be delivered that you will have undertaken any preliminary reading or other academic preparation requested of you by the start of the Event;
- to participate diligently, and to attend fully and promptly and participate appropriately at sessions, seminars, tutorials, and other activities which form part of the Event as required (subject to absence authorised in accordance with procedures applicable to the Event, in respect of which you agree to undertake all additional study and other activities which may be necessary to catch up on missed work);
- to fulfill all the eligibility requirements of the Event in accordance with conditions imposed by ITE;
- to prepare adequately for any activity which you are required to undertake outside the Event, at all times conducting yourself with due respect for staff, other delagates and the public and in an appropriate manner;
- to pay all fees and other money due, by the dates specified by ITE, unless previously agreed otherwise by the appropriate ITE authorities;
- to provide, where requested, ITE with a contact name and details which you are willing to permit ITE to use at its discretion and without further reference to you in a situation which ITE reasonably regards as an emergency;
- to comply with any legal or professional standards and requirements which are applicable to you or the Event; including the self declaration of any cautions and/or convictions and any other reasons or circumstances that might prevent you from, or have a bearing upon your ability to work with the vulnerable and to inform ITE immediately should any of the aforementioned change; any requirement to be provisionally registered with the appropriate Professional, Regulatory or Statutory body from time to time as applicable;
- to comply with any Department of Justice and Equality requirements and visa restrictions in relation to the terms of your immigration status;
- to give explicit consent for ITE to check, verify or communicate with any government department, agency or similar body, any personal data that you have provided at any time during and in support of your application for registration for an ITE Event;
- at all times whilst you are a delegate at an ITE event to act in accordance with any reasonable instructions or requirements issued to you from time to time by or on behalf of ITE, to co-operate with members of staff and to behave appropriately, responsibly and with respect for, and not to harass any person, or discriminate on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, religion or belief, race, sex or sexual orientation, and to refrain from causing damage to property;
- not to make gifts to staff (if you particularly want to express appreciation to staff, consider writing them a card or a letter of thanks instead);
- to notify ITE if any of the information which you have submitted to ITE changes;
- to abide by any special conditions relating to the Event set out in ITE’s information for the Event, any document issued by ITE in respect of the Event, or as otherwise notified to you by ITE; including any requirement to confirm that you have not received any cautions and/or convictions and that there are no other reasons or circumstances that might prevent you from, or have a bearing upon your ability to work with the vulnerable.
4. Fees and Payment
- It is your responsibility to ensure that fees in respect of the Event (as stated in event specific documents or on event specific web pages) (‘the Fees’), and all other expenses relating to the Event, are paid in line with the advertised fee structure of the Event. Unless ITE agrees otherwise in writing, the Fees should be paid before the Event date, whether directly by you, or on your behalf by a third party (such as your employer or sponsor). Where someone else is responsible for payment on your behalf, you must ensure that they do so. You remain responsible if they do not pay.
- The Fees do not include: fees payable in respect of any residential accommodation which may be provided to you by any third party and which will be subject to a separate contract; travelling expenses or other event costs; which will (if relevant) be the subject of a separate agreement between you and ITE.
- If you leave before the Event has finished then you remain liable for the payment of all fees in full unless you have received written confirmation to the contrary from ITE.
5. Failure to Pay the Fees
If the Fees due to ITE remain unpaid 28 days after the date they are due ITE shall be entitled:
- to take legal action to recover the debt;
- to exclude you from ITE events and end this Agreement;
- to withhold from you any certificate which would otherwise have been made to you, suspend further performance of its obligations under this Agreement and/or to refuse to allow you to proceed to any further Event, until all outstanding amounts have been paid, or arrangements for payment have been established which ITE considers satisfactory.
6. ITE Rules, Regulations and Requirements
You must comply with the following policies, codes, rules, regulations and requirements of ITE:-
- The Principles and Regulations, Delegate Disciplinary Procedure and Professional Suitability Procedure (if applicable), documentation and policies relating to financial obligations, Equality and Freedom of Expression, as these are amended from time to time by ITE
- ITE’s regulations on acceptable use of computers, information technology and data protection;
- All policies, codes, rules, regulations and requirements of any other relevant organisation or institution, if required as part of the Event, as such policies, codes, rules, regulations and requirements are amended from time to time.
- Your event with ITE may be terminated as a result of disciplinary or professional suitability action taken against you in accordance with the Disciplinary or Professional Suitability procedures of ITE, revocation of your sponsorship as an international delegate or if you break any of these conditions and the breach is serious. In those cases, this Agreement shall end automatically and your registration as a delegate may be cancelled without the need for any notice, unless ITE agrees otherwise in writing.
- If you are expelled or dismissed from any institution or organisation other than ITE which you are required to attend or be a member of as part of the Event, ITE shall be entitled to end this Agreement immediately by written notice to you.
7. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)
You will be entitled to the IPR except where:
- a person other than ITE owns or is entitled to the IPR;
- you are working in collaboration with others in a manner that gives rise to joint creation of IPR, or interdependent IPR, when you may be required to assign IPR to ITE or place the results in the public domain without restriction;
- you are also a member of staff of ITE, in which case ITE will be entitled to the IPR in the absence of specific agreement to the contrary; or
- the IPR resides in databases, computer software, firmware, courseware and related material if they may reasonably be considered to possess commercial potential.
ITE shall have a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual licence to use material which falls within this condition for teaching, research and other academic purposes.
ITE is the proprietor of the registered trade mark of its name, logos and has goodwill and reputation to protect. You accordingly agree not to publish, post or commercially exploit in any form or medium any matter in which you are entitled to the IPR in any form which mentions the name or logo of ITE or any member of staff without our prior consent to the form and context.
8. ITE’s Liability for Damage
ITE does not accept responsibility, and expressly excludes liability, for the following, in respect of which you are advised to arrange appropriate insurance cover:
- any loss or damage to your property (including but not limited to any motor vehicle or cycle) while that property is on the premises of the Event, unless caused by the negligence of ITE or its employees;
- any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of use of any computer equipment or software provided or made available by ITE to you, including (but without limiting the general nature of this condition) any contamination of software or loss of files as a result of using ITE equipment or software.
Nothing in these conditions operates to exclude ITE’s liability for death or personal injury caused by ITE’s negligence, or for fraudulent misrepresentation.
9. Requirements on Termination of this Agreement
If at any time ITE terminates this Agreement as a result of its rights under these conditions or generally or if this Agreement terminates automatically:-
- ITE shall be entitled to refuse to register you on the Event, if at the date of termination you have not already registered;
- ITE shall be entitled to require you to stop attending the Event, and to leave immediately, if at the date of termination you have already registered;
- Any action taken by ITE under these Conditions will not restrict the ability of ITE to take any other action against you to which it may be entitled;
- ITE will not be liable for any loss or damage of whatever nature which you may suffer as a result of any action taken against you by ITE to terminate this Agreement or disciplinary action by ITE (provided the action by ITE is taken properly in accordance with these conditions or ITE’s procedures);
10. Car Parking
Parking facilities, or lack thereof, vary from venue to venue where events take place. It is your responsibility to ensure that any relevant parking fees are paid and ITE cannot be held responsible in any manner for any fees payable by you as a result of failure to comply with parking requirements. Some venues may provide parking and you agree to comply with any requirements relating to the use of any facilities provided to you. You have no automatic right to park at any venue.
11. Right to Cancel
- If you have registered online you have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason. This cancellation period will expire after fourteen days from the conclusion of the contract. To exercise this right to cancel you must inform ITE in a clear statement (i.e. by letter, email or by telephone) of your decision to cancel this contract. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

- Your right to cancel will be waived if, before any cancellation period has expired, you complete the paper Event registration form and sign it.

- If you breach this Agreement and ITE chooses not to exercise any right which it may have against you, that shall not prevent ITE from taking action against you in the future in respect of that breach or any further breaches by you.

- This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in all respects in accordance with the laws of Ireland and the parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Ireland.

Sensitive personal data includes information held by ITE as to your physical or mental health, sexual life, racial/ethnic origin, the commission or alleged commission of any offence by you and any proceedings for an offence committed or alleged to have been committed by you (including the outcome or sentence in such proceedings).

Personal data alongside photographs will only be used with explicit consent. Please note that you are not entitled to record any seminar activities yourself.
- For delegates who require a visa in order to attend any Event, ITE is not in a position to assist with visa applications other than providing a notice outlining the details of the event and your registration status in relation to the event.
