Terms of Sale for Event Registration

Terms, Conditions and Policies
The following terms and conditions apply when you register for an event on this site.

I understand that this is not a “train a trainer” program, and I agree, as a condition to attending this program, that I will use the information I learn in this program for my own use and not to train others or in connection with developing any educational program.

When you request information from Speechworks, sign up to or use any of our services, or attend any of our events, Speechworks obtains information about you. You can find out more about how we look after that information and what we do with it in our Privacy Policy.

When you pay to register for an event, your online payments are processed by our third party payment processor. We accept MasterCard and Visa, both Credit and Debit cards.

If you request to make a payment by an alternative means, your tickets will be held for up to 30 days from the date of your reservation, or until 10 business days before the event whichever expires earlier (‘reservation expiry date’). If we do not receive payment by the relevant reservation expiry date by this time we may release your reservation and you will need to rebook to secure your place.

Please note that we cannot guarantee availability in relation to our events until your place is paid for and confirmed by us. Also, we may sometimes have to cancel, postpone or reschedule events due to reasons beyond our reasonable control.

Refunds and Cancellation
Refunds will be given in full if cancellation is made more than 10 business days prior to the event you have booked. If you cancel less than 10 business days prior to the event, refunds will be at our sole discretion.

If the event you have booked is cancelled by us you will also be entitled to a full refund. Our liability in this case will be limited to the face value of your booking. Refunds will generally be made in the same form of payment as your purchase. To cancel your booking and request a refund you can call or email us using the contact details given in your confirmation.

Privacy Policy

This is the privacy policy of Speechworks. Our website address is: speechworks.net. If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, contact us online.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it:

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact Forms
All data submitted via forms on this website will be collected and stored.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We utilize Google Analytics to collect user behavior on the website.

Who We Share Your Data With

How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
