General Terms and Condititions 2017-09-15T11:42:19+00:00

1. Registrations

Registrations received by fax, mail or e-mail are subject to an Administration surcharge of € 20. Therefore, we encourage you to use the online registration system that is safe, quick and easy and also gives you an immediate confirmation along with the invoice.

In order to register for the symposium, please log in with your e-mail address and password. If you do not have a profile, you can create a new one. After a successful registration, an invoice or confirmation (depending on your payment) will be sent immediately to your e-mail address. The parties agree that the e-mail confirmation fulfills any requirements with regard to the written form, is considered to have been made in writing, and is legally binding.

If you are not able to complete the online registration process, kindly send an e-mail to secretariat.orgs@congrex.com.

Participants’ fees are inclusive of the statutory value-added tax.

2. Cancellation of Symposium attendance

All cancellations must be sent by e-mail to secretariat.orgs@congrex.com.

Refund of registration fees will be as follows:

  • Cancellations received up to and including 31 March 2018: minus 25% handling fee
  • No refund on cancellations after 31 March 2018, even if due to illness, visa rejection etc.
  • For any name changes, a fee of € 30 will be charged

3. Photography

During the symposium, photos and videos will be taken with snapshots. These images are linked to the visual representation of those present,  with the selection of those photographed being more or less random. The images will be displayed on our websites and in print media and presentations. By registering for the symposium, the attending person consents to publication in the manner described above without remuneration and without requiring express declaration of consent by the person concerned. In individual cases, if the person concerned does not agree to the publication of photos of his/her self, please contact the photographer directly. Should the person concerned not agree with a previously published photographic image of his/her self, we would ask you to immediately notify us per e-mail, telephone, or regular mail with an exact description of the image in question. In this case, the image will be removed within a reasonable timeframe and will no longer be published.

4. Hotel Bookings

You will receive a booking confirmation together with detailed information as soon as the booking process has been completed. Please note that for subsequent changes a processing fee of € 30 applies. The general terms & conditions are indicated online and on the booking form, however, they may vary depending on the hotel. All bookings are to be prepaid in full to Congrex Switzerland. All prices quoted for hotel rooms are subject to change in case of VAT and city tax modifications.

5. Attendance at the party

Attendance at the party can only be booked together with a registration for the symposium. It is not possible to attend the party without a symposium registration. Only a person accompanying a registered symposium participant may participate in a partner program and the party. Participation in a pre-congress workshop is possible without registration to the main congress. The Oral Reconstruction Foundation retains the right to cancel certain planned activities if the defined number of participants is not reached as well as for other reasons. In case of canceled activities, there is no liability beyond the refund of the registration fee. The places available for partner programs, workshops, and the party are limited. The order in which registrations are received shall prevail. The Oral Reconstruction Foundation retains the right to cancel the event for major reasons. In this case, no claims for damages shall be liable.

6. Force Majeure

The participant acknowledges that he/she has no right to lodge damage claims against the organizers should the holding of the symposium be hindered or prevented by unexpected political or economical events or generally by „force majeure“, or should the non-appearance of speakers or other reasons necessitate program changes.


The Oral Reconstruction Foundation collects, processes, and uses personal data from our customers (e.g. title, name, address and communication data, banking details) for the purpose of initiating, justifying, implementing or ending a contract. In doing so, we comply with the conditions of the Swiss Data Protection Act dated June 19, 1992 (DSG).

By registering for events organized by the Oral Reconstruction Foundation, the customer expressly agrees to the use of any personal data collected in this context for the purpose of advertising, market research, or customizing of offers by the Oral Reconstruction Foundation. This consent is also voluntary and can be withdrawn at any time in the future by sending an e-mail to info@orfoundation.org with the comment “Change to my data” or “Delete my data”.

Data is not transferred to third parties as a matter of principle, unless this is necessary to provide a service or perform a contract.

With his/her registration, the participant accepts these General Terms and Conditions for the Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium 2018.
