The Organizer will host an Event for the Participant to attend. The participation is subject to the Participant’s compliance with all the terms, conditions, and notices contained or referenced herein (the “Terms & Conditions”). By completing the registration process and/or attending the Event, the Participant agrees to be bound by these Terms & Conditions. If you make a group registration, the group's leader is responsible for sharing these Terms & Conditions with all group members and is financially responsible for the booking. We will not be liable for a group leader’s failure to share these Terms & Conditions with all participants in their group.
2. Description of services
The Event shall be held and scheduled in accordance with the description provided by the Organizer. The Event will be hosted by Dr. Zahi Hawass. The Event will focus on the history of ancient Egypt and recent discoveries. Modifications may include but are not limited to changes in the pricing structure, the addition of fee-based services, or changes to the schedule of the Event. Any new features that augment or enhance the Event shall also be subject to these Terms & Conditions.
Registration for the Event will only be considered complete after payment has been received and approved. If payment is not made at the time of registration, registration will be considered provisional. Complete (fully paid) registration grants the Participant attendance to the selected event. Registration for the Event can be made only online through www.zahilectures.com
, or over the phone at 646-757-1717 through The Organizer's office. Registrations made through any other party or entity will not be accepted. Payments over the phone will include the (additional) convenience fee of $7 per registered person. Registrations will not be made on-site. We advise you to register as soon as possible as the event is expected to be sold out. Once the registration and payment have been completed, a confirmation email containing a PDF file with a QR code will be sent to the Participant. You must notify The Organizer immediately if there have been any mistakes with your registration, or if you have not received the confirmation e-mail within 24 hours of payment. It is the Participant’s responsibility to ensure that they received the confirmation email with a PDF file with a QR code. You should print your confirmation email, along with your QR code, and bring them with you to access the Event.
4. Flexible Policy
We understand the many "what ifs" you may be weighing in registering for future events. That is why our "Flexible Policy" has been included in those Terms & Conditions. Its most important element is an individual QR code that is on the Participant’s registration. Although the Participant’s registration will show the name of the Participant, the registration is not personal which means that the Participant may transfer their registration to another individual once up to 30 days before the Event without any charge, provided that any such individual will be bound by these terms and conditions. To change the name of the Participant, the Participant shall contact the Organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Changes made less than 30 days before the initial date of the Event will be considered according to individual conditions and the Organizer does not guarantee the change.
The Flexible Policy allows the Participant to whom the registration has been transferred to upgrade their admission package up to 30 days before the event by contacting the Organizer at email@example.com. An admission package upgrade in such a case will be subject to availability.
5. Fees and payments
All Event prices are displayed on the Event’s website and are in U.S. dollars. Prices may vary depending on the time of registration. Once the payment has been received by the Organizer, the Participant is guaranteed the price, except in cases of obvious error. Any participant added at a later date will be subject to the prices in effect at the time of registration. All prices are subject to change without notice. The cost of attending the Event will need to be paid at the time of registration – via the link provided on the Organizer's website or over the phone at 646-757-1717 through The Organizer's office. All payments must be made in advance of attendance at the Event
Payments are to be made by credit or debit card. While we do accept major credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, you must authorize every transaction concerning the Event. Your purchase will appear on your credit card statement as Archaeological Paths (the name of the Event Organizer). The Organizer reserves the right to change the payment methods which – upon such a change is made – shall automatically come into force. Your authorization is an agreement for us to charge your card and an acknowledgment and agreement to these Terms & Conditions including the Cancellation and Refund Policy. As such, you agree not to make any improper chargebacks related to your payments for the Event, other purchases, and services. In certain cases, you have the ability to dispute charges with credit card companies ("chargebacks"). Before initiating a chargeback, the Participant undertakes to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org concerning any questions or concerns about our charges so that we can work with you in an attempt to resolve your concerns. By registering for the Event, you accept and agree to our cancellation policy. The Organizer retains the right to dispute any chargeback that is improper and recover any costs, including attorney’s fees, related to improper chargebacks. Additionally, in the event of an improper chargeback, we retain the right to cancel any registration related to that improper chargeback. The following chargeback scenarios are improper and we retain the right to investigate and rebut any such chargeback claims:
- Chargebacks resulting from non-cancellable registrations, whether or not the registration is used.
- Chargebacks resulting from charges authorized by family, friends, associates, or other third parties with direct access to your credit card. This does not include credit card fraud.
- Chargebacks arising from inconsistency or inaccuracy with regard to the product description.
- Chargebacks resulting from force majeure or other circumstances that are beyond the control of the Organizer.
- Chargebacks resulting because you do not agree with the Terms & Conditions.
6. Cancellations and refunds
Once the registration is completed, all fees are non-refundable in any case if cancellation is made by the Participant. By registering for the Event, the Participant fully accepts and agrees that the fees are non-refundable if the Participant wishes to cancel the Event or if the Participant is not able to attend the Event for which they paid. If the Organizer determines that the Participant must be removed from the Event for inappropriate or illegal conduct, or if the Participant decides to leave the Event in progress voluntarily, the Participant shall not receive any type of refund.
We may cancel the Event at any time for reasons including, for example, availability or suitability of venue or speakers or on security, health, or safety grounds, and we may deny, limit, or cancel your Event registration at any time. Fees for the Event are only refunded if the Organizer cancels the Event in which case the Organizer will provide the Participant with a full refund of all net payments paid to the Organizer unless the cancellation is due to a force majeure or an extraordinary event that makes it infeasible to organize the Event as normal. We may choose to provide a voucher or credit to another event in lieu of a refund. In case of any reimbursement, all bank charges or card fees (a 3,9% fee which is included in the registration fee and the convenience fee of $7 if you made the registration over the phone) are to be covered by the Participant. The Participant is responsible for providing complete and correct details required by the Organizer to issue a refund. Any financial loss or costs incurred due to providing the Organizer with incomplete and incorrect details for reimbursement are the responsibility of the Participant. While the Organizer will make every effort to provide the Participant with a refund at the earliest possibility, the time of sending you a potential refund depends on many factors and may take up to 90 days after the scheduled date of the Event for which you registered.
Before, during, and after the Event, the Participant will have a chance to purchase the products and items offered by the Organizer or its partners. Payments for these products and items are non-refundable once the Participant receives their purchase.
