Ticket prices will be clearly marked on the ticketing site. Turing Festival Limited will only offer payment by invoice for 5 tickets or more due to administrative overhead involved. If you are paying by invoice, payment is due within 14 days of invoicing. Ticket prices will only be honored for the 14 day period stated on the invoice. After that period, ticket prices will increase to the price clearly marked on the ticketing site, if that price is higher than the invoiced price. Tickets will only be issued upon full payment, and are subject to availability.
You cannot resell a ticket. This includes tickets purchased at any price point or allocated through a sponsorship. Doing so will void the ticket and neither the ticket’s original purchaser or the subsequent ticket holder will gain entry to the event, and no refund will be issued to either party.
All tickets must be assigned to an attendee, and all attendee details must be 100% complete within 30 days of receipt of your ticket. This includes name, job title, company name, and email.
Ticket reassignment is allowed until 7 days before the conference or event. Reassignment after this date is prohibited.

All purchases of tickets for conferences and events are non-refundable in their entirety. Your ticket remains the property of Turing Festival Limited and is a personal revocable license, which may be withdrawn, and admission refused at any time upon a refund of the printed registration price.
In the unlikely event of cancellation of a conference or event, the liability of Turing Festival Limited is limited to the share of paid registration fees that remains after credit card and payment processing fees have been incurred and deducted.
It is strictly forbidden for any company, organisation or attendee to attempt to host or organise any event in conjunction with, contiguous to or purporting to be related to Turing Fest or its affiliates without the express prior permission and cooperation of Turing Festival Limited. In the event of breach of these terms any tickets purchased by the organiser and their affiliates will be rendered null and void. Turing Festival Limited reserves their right to take such legal action including a claim for damages as may be appropriate.
The tickets purchased are non-transferrable; they are for your own personal use or that of your business only and may not be resold or transferred under any circumstances, including but not limited to use as part of any promotion or competition. Where there has been any resale or attempted resale of any tickets (or any other breach of this term), Turing Festival Limited reserves the right to cancel the relevant tickets with immediate effect. Single day tickets are only valid for the day for which they were purchased. Multi-day tickets are non-transferrable, and cannot be shared by different people over different days of the event.
We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket broker or tout.
Turing Festival Limited reserves the right to refuse or revoke admission to any event or conference for any behaviour, which it deems unacceptable, or for breach of these Terms and Conditions, or for breach of our Code of Conduct.

Turing Festival Limited is not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation or postponement of an event. Turing Festival Limited shall assume no liability whatsoever in the circumstances that an event is cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to a fortuitous event, Act of God, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of an event impracticable, illegal or impossible. For purposes of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include, but not be limited to war, fire, labour strike, extreme weather, terrorist threats or other emergency.
Please note that while speakers and topics are confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics. As such, Turing Festival Limited reserves the right to alter or modify the advertised speakers and/or topics if necessary without any liability to you whatsoever. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible.
Once a successful purchase transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic soft-copy via email to the email address nominated by the purchaser. For some ticket types, it may be necessary to complete required information — such as attendee name — before the tickets can be issued. The ticket acts as a receipt for the transaction and can be used to redeem entry at the event listed on the ticket. A printed hard-copy ticket or an electronic soft-copy ticket detailing the reference number can be used to register at the event. Scots law governs these terms and conditions and any dispute is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish Courts.
