Cancellations and refunds
All cancellations must be sent in writing via e-mail to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. Expect confirmation of your cancellation within 3–5 days. We appreciate early notice about cancellation because the waiting list is long.
This is an event with a very tight budget which imposes some limitations on the refunding possibilities:
- refunding of the course fees is possible but only if a replacement (applicant on a waiting list) exists;
- the replacement must accept the terms and conditions of payment and cover the course fees within the given deadline;
- in the case of emergency, illness or death of registrant or immediate family member or similar tragic accident (not caused by the applicant), the organizers may refund the complete fees even if no replacement exists (to be decided by the organizing committee);
- in principle, no refunds will be issued for cancellations within 8 weeks of the beginning of the event;
In some cases, people cancel participation in the summer school at the last minute. Most frequently this happens due to two reasons: (1) registrant did not receive a visa or travel permit on time; (2) registrant has missed an airplane/train. In both cases the same refunding policies will apply (no refunding is possible). The only thing we can provide is a letter explaining the situation to your employer or university with a copy of this refunding policy. In the case of a late cancellation, we can also offer waived registration fees for the next summer school (2021). Please make this clear to your budget holder before the beginning of the summer school.
In the case the event is cancelled for security reasons such as the Coronavirus outbreak or similar, all participants will be offered to participate in the postponed event or be refunded. The bank transfer costs in all cases must be covered by the participants.
