You will pay us the Fees on the terms specified in the Booking Contract. All Fees are exclusive of applicable taxes (e.g. GST/HST/PST or other applicable sales taxes) and you shall pay a sum equal to the amount of such sales or equivalent tax chargeable, in addition to the Fees.
You shall make all payments of the Fees to the Organiser without any deduction or withholding for or on account of tax (a Tax Deduction), unless a Tax Deduction is required by law. If a Tax Deduction is required by law to be made by you, the amount of Fees due from you shall be increased to an amount which (after making any Tax Deduction) leaves an amount equal to the Fees which would have been due if no Tax Deduction had been required.
We reserve the right to change the price of the Event at any time, but such changes will not affect the Fees agreed in a Booking Contract. All discounts can only be applied at the time of registration for the Event and discounts cannot be combined. All discounts are subject to our approval and, to the extent applicable, shall be reflected in the Booking Contract. Discounts for group registrations are only valid for the number of Delegates specified on the Booking Contract. If the number of Delegates that actually attend the Event is (for any reason) less than the number specified in the Booking Contract, then we may (in our sole discretion) change the Fees payable by you to reflect the number of Delegates that actually attend the Event in line with our published prices then in force. For the avoidance of doubt, we shall not at any time during the Term, accept any request to apply discounts or promotions on the amount of Fees stated in the Booking Contract retrospectively, whether or not you have already paid the Fees.
7.4 Failure to Pay
In the event you fail to pay any part of the Fees by the relevant due date specified in the Booking Contract, we may (without prejudice to any other rights we may have):
(a) charge you interest on any amounts which are due and unpaid, at a rate per year of 2% above the then current Royal Bank of Canada’s prime rate, calculated daily from the due date until the date of payment; and/or
(b) require such payment as a condition of your Delegate's entry to the Event or refuse their entry to, or block them from accessing, the Event (whether physical or virtual).
For the avoidance of doubt, if you do not pay the full amount of the Fees by the relevant due date and as a result your Delegate is refused entry to the Event pursuant to sub- Section (b) above, we will not refund you for any proportion of the Fees already paid, and the balance of your Fees will remain due and payable (with interest accruing on such amount until the date of payment).
ARTICLE 8: CHANGES, CANCELLATION, OR POSTPONEMENT
8.1 Changes to the Event
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change the format, content or timing of the Event programme, the identity of any speakers or exhibitors, the hosting medium, virtual location or Venue for any reason and without liability to you, provided that the Event, as altered, is similar to the Event as originally advertised.

For the avoidance of doubt, any postponement by us pursuant to this Section 10.1 shall not entitle you to cancel your participation in the Event, or make any claim for refunds or otherwise against us.
(iii) if we cancel the Event pursuant to this Section 10.1, we shall issue you with a full refund or a credit note to the value of all Fees paid by you. You acknowledge that such refund or a credit note is your exclusive remedy in the event of cancellation by us.
