Terms and Conditions
All registrations for Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory (CLANT) conferences are issued subject to these terms and conditions. When you purchase CLANT tickets and/or attend CLANT conferences, you agree to abide by these terms and conditions.
These terms and conditions are subject to, and will not apply to the extent that they exclude, restrict or modify your rights (including any consumer guarantees) under the Australian Consumer Law (Non-excludable Consumer Obligations). Any rights and remedies given to consumers under these terms and conditions are in addition to the rights and remedies provided under the Australian Consumer Law.
Your invoice must be settled in full by the due date for payment. Registrations received within 14 days of the commencement of the conference are payable upon receipt of an invoice. Failure to make payment as required may result in cancellation of your registration.
Any representations made by CLANT, or information provided by CLANT in respect of the conference is current and accurate to best of CLANT’s knowledge, at the time that the representation is made, or information provided. To the extent permitted by law, including the Australian Consumer Law, CLANT does not make any representations or warranties as to the accuracy or completeness of the information.
Although every effort will be made to keep presentations as represented, CLANT reserves the right to make any reasonably necessary changes to the program, including:
• altering the scheduled dates;
• changing the location of conferences;
• substituting any of the speakers for any conference; and
• cancelling the conference.
In the event that a CLANT conference is altered, changed or delayed, CLANT will contact registered attendees prior to the conference date to notify them of the changes. If a registered delegate does not accept the changes made by CLANT to the conference, they may cancel their registration and request a full refund of the registration fee.
In the event that an CLANT conference is cancelled, please refer to CLANT's 'Cancellation by CLANT' policy below.
Refunds and Cancellations Policy
Cancellations by delegates
In organising conferences CLANT has committed to contracts with venues and/or service providers under which payment falls due, within certain timeframes, by virtue of the member’s purchase of a ticket and remain payable regardless of the member’s non-attendance. CLANT’s cancellation policy accordingly reflects its obligations under those various contracts, insofar as it is possible to do so in a general policy.
If a registered delegate cancels or does not attend other than for a reason that relates to the Non-excludable Consumer Obligations, COVID-19 Border Closures, or the Force Majeure policy, for example where the registered attendee cancels or does not attend due to a change in their own circumstances, the following general policy applies:
• A full refund will be provided for all cancellations received in writing at least 30 days prior to the conference.
• No refund will be given for any cancellations received after this period, or for non-attendance on the day.
• Delegate substitutions may be made at any time subject to the communication to, and approval by, CLANT (which cannot be unreasonably withheld). If a replacement delegate is a full delegate substituting with a group member where the registration has been reduced, the replacement delegate will make up the difference and this must be paid immediately upon receipt of an invoice provided.
COVID-19 Border Closures
The government in various States and Territories has imposed at times and may in future impose border closures or border restrictions in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic (COVID-19 Border Closures). The attendees acknowledge that the COVID-19 Border Closures are outside the control of CLANT.
If a registered delegate cancels or does not attend a CLANT conference and they can show that is due to COVID-19 Border Closures, the following policy applies:
• Where the COVID-19 Border Closures are announced by the government more than 30 days prior to the conference and you cancel at least 30 days prior the general policy will apply (see above)
• Where the COVID-19 Border Closures are announced by the government less than 30 days prior to the conference and you cancel within 7 days of the announcement:
o A partial refund will be provided for all cancellations received in writing. CLANT will charge a cancellation fee to cover the administrative costs to process the cancellation and refunds;
o Delegate substitutions may then be made at any time subject to the communication to, and approval by, CLANT (which cannot be unreasonably withheld). If a replacement delegate is a full delegate substituting with a group member where the registration has been reduced, the replacement delegate will make up the difference and this must be paid immediately upon receipt of an invoice provided.
Cancellation by CLANT
Subject to the Force Majeure policy below, in the event that a CLANT conference is cancelled, CLANT will contact registered delegates prior to the conference date to offer either:
• an alternative conference on an alternative date; or
• a full refund of the conference fee.
Except in relation to the COVID-19 Border Closure policy, neither party shall be liable to the extent its failure to perform (or its delay in performance of) any of its obligations under these terms and conditions is a result of a Force Majeure conference, provided that the party suffering such delay immediately notifies the other party of the delay.
A 'Force Majeure conference' means any cause, conference or circumstance whatsoever outside the reasonable control of a party including, but not limited to, health pandemics, war, strikes, lockouts, industrial disputes or unrest, accidents to machinery, restrictions or intervention imposed by any laws, regulations, governments or government agencies, transport delays, fire, flood, act of God, breakdown of plant, transport delays, shortages or unavailability of materials or labour, storm or tempest, theft, vandalism, riots, civil commotions or accidents of any kind.
