These policies govern the registration for and participation in events hosted by SCIIF™.
If You make a reservation but are unable to attend, SCIIF is still responsible for the cost of Your event reservation. As We sometimes have a waiting list, please let Us know even if You must cancel Your reservation later than the refund deadline.

Our concern is for the safety of our guests and staff. We will use our best discretion in making decisions regarding our events and will typically utilize weather and emergency guidelines of local, state and federal authorities in the geographic area where our events are to be held. In the event that inclement weather or a local emergency causes our events to be postponed or canceled, SCIIF will take the following steps to notify registered guests of the status of the event(s):
Guests who have submitted and received confirmation of payment for events that are postponed or canceled will receive a credit which may be used for a future event. Refunds are at our discretion and will be issued in accordance with the Refund Policy below.
SCIIF extends invitations to relevant and informative speakers from Government and Industry for certain events. Due to the nature of their roles and responsibilities, speakers are subject to change and substitution without notice. SCIIF makes every attempt to find a comparable speaker for the same date or to provide reasonable notice for a rescheduled date. No refunds will be made unless SCIIF entirely cancels the event or otherwise in its discretion determines that reasonable notice of a change is not practicable.
We will accept checks based on Your acceptance of the following conditions:
Credit Card Users agree to allow SCIIF a seven (7) business day cure period to provide a resolution in the case of a dispute. If You feel that You have been charged incorrectly, please call us or send an email to [email protected] with details of the charged amount, date of charge and the reason You believe an error has been made. SCIIF will respond with acceptance of Your inquiry, research the charge and provide a response to You within seven (7) business days from the date we receive Your inquiry.
By accepting this agreement, You agree to reimburse SCIIF for bank and service fees in the event that You do not provide us the seven (7) day cure period to resolve the matter. Additionally, You agree to reimburse SCIIF for all charges associated with collecting this reimbursement if payment is not received by SCIIF within fourteen (14) business days from the date You are notified that Your dispute was incorrectly lodged. All refund requests are subject to review by SCIIF.
Payment transactions performed through SCIIF Website are conducted in a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) session. The Secure Socket Layer encrypts all transaction data for transmittal in a format that prevents data theft. This process protects all private information from being disclosed to third parties. While on a secure page, the lock icon at the bottom of a Web browser (i.e. Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer) becomes locked. While SCIIF uses encryption to protect sensitive information online, We also institute measures to protect member information offline.
