Event Terms & Conditions

Technology First reserves the right to cancel your registration if we do not receive payment by the start date of the event. Prices are listed as is and considered net of any local withholding taxes applicable in your country of residence.
Tax Deductibility - All expenses incurred to maintain or improve skills in your profession may be tax deductible, including tuition, travel, lodging, and meals. Please consult your tax advisor.
Registration Payment Terms - Checks are payable to Technology First. Credit cards accepted: American Express, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover. Technology First will charge your credit card the correct amount should your total be miscalculated. If you wish to pay using wire transfer funds, please email email@example.com for instructions.
Due to PCI compliance, please do not provide any credit card information via email. You may email the PDF registration form (without credit card information) and call Technology First at +1 937.229.0054 or 937.229.0059 with your credit card information.
Conference Registration/Access - Whether the conference is in person or virtual, each attendee must have their own registration. Only registered attendees are allowed to stream, participate, and earn CEUs for the conference. If a second person wishes to join, they must register themselves and have their own unique login to participate.
With the exception of webinars, each registration allows for one connection to the webinar. If you have multiple people in different locations participating, we suggest purchasing additional lines, or buying a copy of the session recording. Additional lines can be purchased at a discounted rate by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. While Technology First will allow for virtual screen sharing within the same company, there are platform restrictions, not within our control, that may prohibit these capabilities, which is why we have offered additional lines at a discounted rate.
Group Discount Policy - Group discounts are available when multiple people from the same organization attend the conference together. Discounts take effect the day a group reaches the discount number of registrants. Please send registration forms together to ensure that the discount is applied. A separate registration form is required for each registrant. The group discount is NOT available through online registration. Note that discounts will NOT be applied retroactively if more registrants are added at a later date, but new registrants will receive the group discount.
Alternatively, you may choose to send a substitute attendee in your place at any time before the conference. Substitutions (that is, assigning a paid registration to another individual) will be accepted in writing to Technology First up to two business days prior to the event date on a one-time basis. Note that the registration fee is based on the membership status of the individual who attends the conference. Non-member substitutes will be charged the fee difference if they are substituting for a member-discounted registration.
If Technology First has to cancel an event at any time you will receive notification via email and all attendees will be refunded to the original form of payment within 14 business days.
Membership Refunds/Cancellations/Transfers - We do not offer refunds for our membership fees. If applicable the membership holder may transfer their membership to another member of your organization at no charge. A transferred membership will use the remainder of the original membership term. Memberships are owned by the individual on the account, not the organization, even if the member leaves an organization or if the membership was paid for by that organization. Only the member can request their membership be transferred to someone else.
If an employer loses membership (that they paid for) due to a departing employee, that organization can obtain a six-month membership fee complimentary with the purchase of six month membership for the incoming compliance professional (as long as they are not currently a member). The six-month membership will not be added to an existing membership that an individual already holds.
