These Terms of Sale are subject to change without prior written notice at any time, in EMVCo’s sole discretion, and such changes shall apply to any purchases made after such changes are posted to the Site.  Therefore, you should review these Terms of Sale prior to each purchase so you will understand the terms applicable to such transaction and confirm that you wish to have any revised terms apply to your prior transactions. If you do not agree to these Terms of Sale, do not make any purchases on the Site.

1. Payment Methods and Terms

EMVCo accepts Visa, MasterCard, JCB and American Express credit cards and certain debit cards as payment methods for purchases on the Site.  By making a purchase on the Site, you authorize EMVCo, or its designated payment processor, to charge your specified credit or debit card in the amount specified.  EMVCo reserves the right to refuse or cancel any purchases or attempted purchases at any time in its sole discretion.  All charges will be made in United States dollars or such other currency as indicated during the payment process.  Currency exchange settlements are based on your agreement with your credit card or other payment method provider.

2. Refunds

Except as noted in the next paragraph, there are no refunds for payments made through the Site, including for the payment of annual subscription fees or purchase of printed specifications.

Except as otherwise may be stated in the applicable meeting announcement or invitation, refund of the registration fee for a user group or vendor meeting, less a $100 cancellation fee per person, is available if a cancellation request is received by EMVCo at least thirty (30) days prior to the start of the meeting.  EMVCo is not responsible for cancellation of travel or lodging reservations.
