It is the responsibility of registered attendees to attend the webinar at the designated time. There are no refunds for your failure to attend the webinar.
18. When Are Refunds Issued?
Refunds will only be available if our system software fails. There is no refund if your individual connection is poor or your computer is malfunctioning. There is no refund if you forget to attend or if you log-in at an incorrect time. It is the registered attendee’s responsibility to know when to log-in to the webinars given their geographic location and their own time zone.
19. If I purchase a “live” webinar from CASANA will I then be able to access that webinar through CASANA’s On-Demand Webinar Library?
CASANA’s On-Demand Webinar Library is a completely different platform than a “live” webinar presentation. Your registration for a CASANA “live” webinar is not interchangeable with the purchase of a webinar through the On-Demand Webinar Library. By purchasing a “live” webinar through CASANA, you do NOT automatically have access to it through the On Demand Library should it become available on that platform. If you are unable to log-on for the “live” webinar that you registered for, you cannot view it in On-Demand Webinar Library should it become available on that platform.
