Terms and Conditions

Thank you for your interest in attending the International Online Wilderness and Expedition Medicine Conference (IOWEMC). Before you proceed to purchase tickets, we strongly recommend you to go through the following terms and conditions:


In this section, words like ‘holder’, ‘bearer’, and ‘purchaser’ will refer to you – the person who will buy the tickets to the IOWEMC. On the other hand, ‘our’, ‘us’, ‘we’, ‘issuer’, ‘provider’ and similar terms will indicate the organisers of the IOWEMC.


By opting to purchase, allocate or possess tickets to the IOWEMC, you automatically agree to our terms of use. If you have problems with any of the clauses listed below or do not agree with the risk allocations mentioned here, please do not purchase tickets or try to the IOWEMC. Please get in contact if you have any queries.


Please note that Cardiff WEMS reserves the right to make changes, revisions, and amendments, or add/remove sections from this set of terms and conditions – without any prior notifications to you. Such changes will be duly reflected on the website of the organiser (www.cardiffswmuk.com). These changes will relate back to the date of purchase of IOWEMC tickets.


The ticket you purchase represents a revocable license for you to access the webinar on the date of your purchased ticket, when IOWEMC is scheduled to be hosted. The license includes the revocable right to attending the IOWEMC. This license can be revoked at any time by the issuer at its sole discretion, without any prior notifications or compensation options. If the license is revoked, you will not be granted entry.

Kindly note that www.cardiffswmuk.com is the sole authorised source for purchasing IOWEMC tickets. If you obtain your ticket(s) from any other unauthorised source, you take on the risks of those tickets turning out to be counterfeit or reported to be stolen. The issuer has the right to dishonour such stolen/counterfeit tickets and declare them as void.


The IOWEMC tickets delivered to you are not meant to be used for illegal reselling, copying, reproducing, or misrepresenting in any form. You cannot use the ticket(s) for any promotional/advertising purposes either (including sweepstakes and competitions) without our prior approval. Any proven record of such activities will result in immediate seizure and cancellation of your ticket(s).


Please note that IOWEMC tickets cannot be redeemed against cash, credits, or any other benefits.


Cardiff WEMS has the right to investigate if there has been any violation of the IOWEMC ticketing terms and conditions. In case of any conflicts, the decision of Cardiff WEMS will be deemed final (i.e., the issuer will remain the final arbiter in cases of disputes).


The event service will be deemed to have been delivered in its entirety as soon as the IOWEMC starts on 5th or 6th September 2020. From that point on, no refund requests will be entertained.


If IOWEMC is cancelled in its entirety due to any unforeseen circumstances, Cardiff WEMS has the sole and absolute right to:

i) reschedule the event, or

ii) issue a partial/full refund

Please note that the decision of the issuer in such cases will be deemed final and binding.


If IOWEMC is cancelled due to any factors or causes not in the control of the issuer, the latter will offer a partial or full refund, or postpone the event, or provide a comparable ‘make good’ option. These factors will be inclusive of, but not limited to, natural disasters, federal/state announcements, strikes, delays in production, and the like. Once again, the decision of Cardiff WEMS will be considered final.


If IOWEMC has to be rescheduled to other dates, you will not be eligible for any refunds. In case the event is fully cancelled, the refund, if issued, will include ONLY the face value/printed value of the ticket(s). The bearer cannot, under any circumstances, claim refunds on shipping fees, processing fees, handling fees, and such other charges.


Losses, if any, occurring due to foreign exchange fluctuations at the time of refunds, have to be borne by the purchaser. Cardiff WEMS cannot be, in any way, held liable for that.


All ticket sales are deemed as FINAL TRANSACTIONS. There will be no ticket returns/exchanges/cancellations.

IOWEMC and Cardiff WEMS follow a common ‘zero-tolerance policy’ towards poor behaviour during the webinar, AND towards any type of behaviour/actions that can be interpreted as lewd or obscene. If you indulge in any objectionable action during the IOWEMC, your participation in the event will be terminated immediately. Your event ticket(s) will become void from that point on.


Please note that you purchase IOWEMC tickets on your own free will. As such, you do not have the right to initiate a chargeback claim or dispute on the provider of the credit card/debit card that had been used for the transaction. Further refund/return/cancellation requests will not be entertained either.


In all cases of disputes between the ticket-bearer and the ticket-issuer, the decision of the latter will be deemed final. In case a dispute cannot be resolved, the help of an independent third-party arbiter will be sought.


We really hope you will have a great time at the IOWEMC.
