Terms & Conditions - Privacy Statement

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS 


1. Liability

WeyDu’s board members are all volunteers. As such, the Participant,  whose application and thus participation in WeyDu’s activities and conference has been accepted, agrees to indemnify WeyDu against any and all losses, claims, costs, charges, expenses, damages and liabilities whatsoever the Participant may incur as a result of participation in these events.
If the Participant’s legal interests are infringed upon, WeyDu shall only be responsible for intent or gross negligence.

If third parties, employed by WeyDu, infringe upon the Participant’s legal  interests, the Participant shall seek regress with the third parties first before holding WeyDu liable. You shall hold WeyDu liable only if other regress is  unavailable.

Participants are obliged to abide by the Belgian positive law during the entirety of the  conference. Any use of illegal drugs, criminal activities or any violations of the law will result in participant´s expulsion from the whole conference and the participant may be held criminally liable. In the case of the expulsion of participant no claims for refund can be made.

Participants are equally expected to abide by the positive COVID-19 legislation. Failure to do so will result in expulsion from the event. WeyDu cannot be held liable in this regard, save in the case of intent or gross negligence.

 

2. Data protection

WeyDu’s data protection policy is further elaborated upon in WeyDu’s Privacy Statement (infra).


3. Media
 

WeyDu members and activities participants can be photographed and/or  be filmed during the academic semester and/or conference activities.

WeyDu reserves the right to use any video or photo footage from the academic semester and conference activities for its website, social networks and further promotion of the event and/or for archival purposes.

WeyDu claims copyright on all materials, photos, logos and articles on its website and social networks. No data can be used by third parties without the permission of the organisation or proper credit.

The copyright of any such material shall be owned by the organisation without payment or compensation to the Participants portrayed in the media.

4. Refund

In case the Participant chooses to cancel the booking or does not attend the event, fees are non-refundable, without prejudice to the provisions of par. 5 of these Terms and in accordance with article VI.53, par. 1, 1° Wetboek van Economisch Recht (Belgian Official Gazette 29 March 2013).

By way of derogation from the provisions of the previous paragraph, a fee shall be refundable if the Participant provides WeyDu with a positive PCR test, concluding that the Participant cannot attend the event due to being infected with COVID-19.

In case the event is cancelled, a refund will be issued upon request. If no refund is requested, the ticket will be transferred to the next event.
 


5. Conference Visa Procedure

WeyDu may provide invitation letters upon request and ease the visa procedure to all conference Participants requiring visa to enter Europe. However, the organisation bears no responsibility for unsuccessful visa claims.

In case the aspiring Participant fails to obtain a visa with the help of WeyDu, the fee paid will be returned in full amount to his account within three weeks after notification to the organisation.

6. Incomplete/incorrect registrations

In the event that the registration form – as filled in by the participant – contains incomplete or false information, WeyDu reserves the right to cancel the booking. In such case, WeyDu will reimburse the fee paid after subtracting the transaction fee(s).


7. Miscellaneous

The nullity or invalidity of a certain provision of these General Terms and Conditions shall not extend to other provisions of these General Terms and Conditions if the latter is not deemed null or invalid.
In case of conflict, the courts of Leuven are competent.

Belgian law applies.
