- You can decline to provide credit card information and any other information through our site at any time. If you should choose to withhold requested information, we will not be able to process your transaction.
- The Cvent registration site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of information under its control. Cvent protects secure data with industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. It periodically reviews and improves its security and privacy policies as necessary. Cvent only allows pre-authorized individuals access to its servers and to information provided through online registration.
- To cancel or update your registration, follow the instructions in your confirmation email or go back to the registration link (when it becomes live) to make changes to your registration as well as to any other guests or attendees you registered under your main registration.
