3.6 Any postponements of confirmed and contracted business or any Public Health Emergency declared by Public Health England, the Chief Medical Officer for England or any law or any action taken by the UK government or UK public authority that directly affects the operation of the event will be considered as a cancellation in accordance with the above cancellation clauses. However, provided the revised summer school date is agreed (subject to availability) and takes place within 12 months of the original event date, payments received by EIBBSS from the delegate shall form a credit towards the future event. Should any postponement costs be incurred by EIBBSS, the delegate will be notified, and these costs will be deducted from the amount held as credit.
On external events (concerts etc..) all guests are fully supervised throughout. As such neither EIBBSS or its employees or agents shall be liable for any damage, loss, delay, or expenses caused to the delegate, its employees, agents, licensees or invitees or any other persons attending the event except insofar as it results from the negligence of EIBBSS or breach of contract. Please note that during particular events and on certain activities it may be necessary to request individuals to sign a liability waiver on the day of the event (although the same does not purport to exclude liability for damage to personal property of the delegates employees or staff or property damage caused to the delegates property or personal injury arising as a result of the negligence of EIBBSS), in which instances EIBBSS agrees to indemnify and hold the delegate harmless against all such claims. EIBBSS shall provide Public Liability insurance cover of £5million for each and every claim.
5. Force Majeure
EIBBSS shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God (other than one arising from or related to directly or indirectly from volcanic ash), strikes, lockouts, accidents, war, fire, breakdown of plant or machinery, and EIBBSS shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations.
If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed with the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.
7. Governing Law
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
8. Dietary Requirements
Although every effort will be made to accommodate special dietary requirements. However, should the cost of such be more than the catering costs there may be an additional charge levied by the caterers, but any additional charges will be notified to the delegate and agreed in advance.2
