As a participant you understand that all travel contains some risks that may be caused by forces of nature, or negligence, or actions of others. You agree on behalf of your dependents, heirs, and administrators to release and hold harmless PEA and any of its officers, employees, agents, or representatives from any and all liability, expense, or inconvenience caused by late arrivals, departures, or any changes of schedule beyond our control, or the loss of, or damage to your camera equipment, accessories, luggage, money, jewelry, valuables, or other belongings whatsoever, whosoever, or howsoever caused.
For any reason beyond our reasonable control, such as, but not limited to, Force Majeure or governmental actions, PEA shall have the right to cancel the program and refund all monies to the participant. Such refund shall be the sole measure of damages. The right is reserved to make changes to the program that might be necessary based on changing schedules with or without notice. PEA reserves the right to accept, decline or remove any person as a member of the program at any time for behavior that is deemed to be disruptive to the group or program. Any claim or dispute by a participant with PEA arising out of or relating to this contract or services pursuant to this contract shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules then in effect and adapted by the American Arbitration Association, which arbitration shall take place in the State of Illinois. A request for arbitration must be filed within one month from the participant’s scheduled departure.
PLEASE DON'T MAKE ANY NON-REFUNDABLE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS UNTIL GIVEN CONFIRMATION BY PEA ADMINISTRATORS TO DO SO.
If cancellation is received between 60-119 days, refund will be 50 percent of total tour cost, minus PhotoEnrichment Programs, Inc. costs, as well as fees charged by third party suppliers included in the tour, if any.
For cancellations made less than 59 days prior to departure all trip fees are forfeited. All cancellation notifications must be received and confirmed in writing by dated e-mail. In the unlikely event we have to cancel a trip a full refund of all monies paid to PhotoEnrichment Programs, Inc. will be provided. As stated above, such refund shall be the sole measure of damages.
PLEASE CONSIDER PURCHASING TRIP CANCELLATION INSURANCE TO PROTECT AGAINST UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THAT MAY CAUSE YOU TO CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION.
