ART EUROPE CANCELLATION, RETURN, AND SEMINAR TRANSFER POLICY
II. SEMINAR REFUNDS
Please ensure you fully intend to attend and complete a seminar prior to completing enrollment and registration. For refund requests initiated within 30-days from the date of purchase, ART Europe will refund seventy-five (75%) of registration fees paid. ART Europe will not issue refunds on requests initiated more than 30-days from the date of purchase. If you are beyond 30-days from the date of purchase, you may transfer your seminar registration fees to a different seminar, as explained in Section III below, or elect for the fees to remain as a credit on your account.
Refunds will typically be applied to the purchasing credit or debit card or otherwise by original form of payment, though ART Europe reserves the right to issue refunds by check, EFT, or wire transfer, in its sole discretion. Once a seminar begins, no refunds, transfers, or cancellations for that seminar will be considered, regardless of date of purchase.
III. SEMINAR TRANSFERS
You may apply or transfer all amounts paid for a seminar to another ART Europe Seminar, or place those amounts on hold as a credit with ART Europe to apply toward future ART Europe Seminar(s) within 24 months from the initial date of purchase.
Any remaining credit resulting from application of funds will remain on hold for your use within 24 months of the initial purchase date. Refunds will not be issued for credit remaining after application of funds. If the fees for the seminar to which you are transferring exceed the amount of credit on hold with ART Europe, the difference must be remitted to ART Europe by you during completion of your registration. If you cancel a seminar and keep it on hold when you are a student and decide to use it after your student discount has expired (6 months after graduation), you will need to pay the difference in price in order to attend the seminar.
IV. ACCESS AND SUBSCRIPTIONS
Access to and subscriptions for provider directory listings, the ARTMan™ app, ART’s learning management system(s), web broadcast(s), and other services restricted to active/current ART Certified Providers will terminate when your ART Certification lapses.
V. PRODUCT RETURNS
Except for seminar curriculum materials subject to the seminar refund and transfer policies above, unworn or unused products in original packaging or with original hangtags attached may be returned to ART Europe within 30 days of the initial purchase date for an exchange or refund.
ART Europe expressly reserves the right to refuse refunds or application of funds on hold to individuals abusing ART Europe’s refund policy for the purpose of exploitation of ART’s or ART Europe's intellectual property or for any other reason, as determined by ART or ART Europe in its sole discretion.
