Terms & Conditions

We're sorry this page is so blunt, but we needed to make sure that the rules are clear. In addition to our Privacy Policy, your participation in CESD events is subject to the following:

 

CESD Webinars 

Payment. Registration is made by credit card only. No purchase orders, checks, or cash payments are permitted. Don’t even get us started about Bitcoin.

 

No cancellations or refunds. If you are unable to join us on the day of the livestreaming webinar, you will have the opportunity to view the recording at a later time. An email with details on how to view the webinar if you missed it will be sent following the live event. No registrations will be refunded.

 

No substitutions. To protect the integrity of the registration process, and due to the availability of a recording following the live event, no substitution of attendees is permitted.

 

No group use. CESD Webinars are priced and made available for the private use of one attendee per registration. To make this type of streaming event sustainable we need your help. If you value the material we provide, help us maintain the integrity of the event and limit access to our bandwidth to those who paid for it. Sharing of login information, recording sessions or watching with a group consisting of individuals who are not registered for the event is strictly prohibited and violates the rights of the presenters to control their intellectual property. CESD reserves the right to deny Webinar access to an attendee for unauthorized use. In such a case, no refund will be provided.

 

CESD Webinars are not legal advice. The webinar provides information about the law. Even though a lawyer (or two) may be presenting and discussing law, agency guidance and current issues, the presentation, powerpoint, and audience-presenter interaction (via chat, video, audio or other means) does not create an attorney-client relationship with any webinar participant. For legal questions about a particular set of facts, talk to your school attorney.

 

CESD Conferences and Pre-Conferences:

Payment. To process your registration, we need a valid purchase order, credit card payment (online) or a check. A completed Registration Form  (either via paper form or online form) is required of all attendees.

 

No cancellations or refunds. Since participation is not limited to the two days of the scheduled conference, the typical life and work events that interfere with attendance will not prevent viewing the sessions over the three-week window. As a result, no refund, cancellation of a purchase order, or transfer to the next conference will be made. To substitute another person for  a registrant at an event, please contact CESD prior to the event at 512-219-5043 with the name and email address of the person who will be substituting for you.

 

No group use. The Conference and PreConference events are priced and made available for the private use of one attendee per registration. To make this type of streaming event sustainable we need your help. If you value the material we provide, help us maintain the integrity of the event and limit access to our bandwidth to those who paid for it. Sharing of login information, recording sessions or watching with a group consisting of individuals who are not registered for the event is strictly prohibited and violates the rights of the presenters to control their intellectual property. CESD reserves the right to deny Conference access to an attendee for unauthorized use.  In such a case, no refund will be provided.

 

Accommodations. Individuals with disabilities with special communication or other needs should advise CESD of those needs at the earliest possible date in order that their needs may be addressed. CESD will seek to provide reasonable accommodation where needed.

 

Continuing Education Credits. Following the Conference, CESD will provide via email a Certificate of Attendance to each attendee that includes clock hours representing participation by the attendee in all of the available sessions. This certificate alone may not satisfy your licensing board. The registration page of the website will detail the Continuing Education Credits available for holders of various professional licenses. CESD pursues these credit arrangements based on attendee demand and interest. As each licensing board or group sets its own policy, requirements for attendees seeking CEUs may vary depending on their licensure.

CESD will have in place the necessary tools to document participation required to support requests for CEUs for attendees with licenses identified on the registration page. It is the responsibility of each attendee to provide CESD with written consent to release supporting documentation to licensing boards to meet CEU requirements. For example, the Academic Language Therapy Association (ALTA) requires that online conferences track login and logout times of its licensees in order to document credit hours of participation. For ALTA members attending the Dyslexia Conference, you must both consent for CESD to track your logins and logouts to the conference ballroom via cookie, and consent to release the resulting data to ALTA. CEUs for other supported licenses may also have additional requirements this year. It is the ultimate responsibility of individual licensees to comply with reporting requirements necessary for credit.

 

CESD Conference and PreConference sessions including the Q&A are not legal advice. The sessions provides information about the law. Even though a lawyer (or two) may be presenting and discussing law, agency guidance and current issues, the presentation, powerpoint and audience-presenter interaction (via chat, video, audio or other means) does not create an attorney-client relationship with any Conference participant. For legal questions about a particular set of facts, talk to your school attorney.

 

Changes to the Event. The most current listing of sessions and speakers for each event is available on the website. CESD reserves the right to make changes to speakers,  sessions and the schedule for livestreaming events or sessions at any time.
