MPG reserves the right to refuse or accept your registration and this refusal or acceptance is at the sole discretion of an authorised individual representing MPG.

If the number of delegates that actually attend the Event is (for any reason) higher than the number specified at the point of registration (e.g. if it is apparent that a client has included more attendees on an online call than have paid registration fees), then registration fees for those who have not yet paid but have participated in an Event will need to be paid within 24 hours of the course ending via credit card using MPG’s online payment portal. MPG’s published prices will be applied. Failure to pay for additional participants will result in MPG not allowing any representatives from the same company to access the digital content package of course materials or participant in MPG’s online chat group, and MPG may refuse access for anyone from the organisation to any future Event or other Services delivered by MPG on the basis of this type of non-payment.

8.4. Prices for each Event are correct at the time of publication on MPG’s Website and in supplementary, officially produced MPG materials. MPG reserves the right to change the Event prices at any time, however changes will not apply to registrations MPG has already confirmed.

All cancellations must be made in writing to academy@mpg.biz and received by MPG.

8.6. Substitutions with employees from your organisation are welcome but your request should be submitted in writing and received by MPG no later than 24 hours before the start of the Event.

You may not purchase registrations as agent for any third party or sell or otherwise transfer your registration to others or exploit the registration commercially or non-commercially in any way.

Transfers will be charged at £100 + VAT per registrant.

All transfer requests must be made in writing to academy@mpg.biz and received by MPG at least 5 days before the originally booked Event. Transfers are only possible within 6 months of the original booking. You may only transfer between courses once. MPG regrets that it cannot accept cancellations once you have transferred to an alternative course and any fees will remain payable in full.

If you choose not to attend the re-arranged Event (and notify MPG of such in good time) or if MPG does not organise such an Event within 12 months of the original course date, then you will (as your sole remedy) be entitled, at your discretion, to receive either a credit note or a refund in respect of the registration fees received by MPG.

8.10. Where a Force Majeure Event has or may have (in MPG’s sole discretion) an adverse impact on: (i) the ability of MPG to hold the Event on a planned digital platform or on the planned date; or (ii) the Event generally, then MPG shall be entitled but not obliged (in its sole discretion) to either:

8.10.1. provide alternative digital platform for the Event; and/or

8.10.2. reschedule the Event.
