Noia Membership Terms and Conditions
Memberships are not transferable and are valid until the anniversary date joined and are renewable on an annual basis. The membership belongs to the company that has rendered payment to Noia and not to the individual who registered the member company. By entering an individual’s email address into the member company contact profile, the individual will receive Noia emails advising of upcoming events and seminars.
Once the annual membership fees are paid, refunds of the fee will not be granted, in whole or in part, should a member decide to resign their membership part way through the year.
Noia Event Terms and Conditions
Events may consist of seminars, conferences, luncheons, or other forms of advertised events whether attendance is free or if an admission fee is charged to attend.
Your name and contact information collected during the registration process may be shared with event participants and the speakers in the form of a delegate list. By registering for the event you are consenting to the use and disclosure of the information for this purpose. Registration information will not be shared with event exhibitors, sponsors and other conference delegates.
Noia reserves the right to cancel events at any time prior to the scheduled date; in this case, our liability is limited to a full refund of the session fee. Confirmation of registration to any specific event will be sent by email or fax before the event or workshop. Payment is due upon registration.
Registrants who do not show up for the event in question are not eligible for a refund.
Cancellations received by our offices by mail/email within the specified cancellation date are fully refundable and may be subject to an administration fee. Refunds will not be given after that date, however, delegate substitution is permitted.
Noia makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that information presented at events is accurate and current, but Noia does not take any responsibility for errors or omissions made by any speaker at Noia events, including Noia staff members who speak at such events.
In the event that a Noia product, event or service is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, Noia reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. Noia reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Noia shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, Noia may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with Noia, Noia has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of Noia.
These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, Noia seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).
