We strongly advise you save or print a copy of this page for your records.

Once you have completed your registration, please read your Registration Confirmation email to make sure that you have been registered for the correct class BEFORE the start of the conference. If you find that you have been registered for the incorrect class, you must contact us by September 26, 2014 in order for us to move you to the class you originally wanted to be in (space pending). We cannot move you to another class after September 26, 2014; however, you may ADD a class. Please read the TRAINING CLASS CHANGE REQUEST policy below.


Age Limit

Due to safety concerns, no one under the age of 18 (including infants in strollers) will be permitted on the premise at any time during Black Hat Europe 2014.


AUDIO & VIDEO RECORDINGS

Attendees are not permitted to record any of the sessions at Black Hat. Anyone caught recording, whether it be audio or video, may be asked to leave.


BADGES

All individuals on the conference floor must have a badge visible on their person at all times. Lost, misplaced, stolen, or forgotten badges will incur a replacement fee equal to the original purchase amount of your pass. If your badge was complimentary, the fee will be the current, late rate.


Briefings Workshops

Workshops offered during the Briefings have limited seating in the rooms and are first come, first served. Standing room is subject to Fire Marshal regulations.


CANCELLATION POLICY

Fees are non-refundable after September 26, 2014.

Paid registrants who do not submit a Black Hat Registration Update Form by September 26, 2014, fail to send a substitute, or do not attend the conference forfeit their entire registration fee.

Registrants who must cancel may substitute another person by submitting a Black Hat Registration Update Form. Please see the section on SUBSTITUTIONS.

Individuals are responsible for cancelling their own hotel and travel reservations. Black Hat does not accept liability for hotel or travel costs.

Paid registrants who cancel and do not substitute another person will receive a refund less a 250.00 Euro processing fee if notification is submitted in writing via a completed Black Hat Registration Update Form on or before September 26, 2014.

If you cancel and re-register, your new registration will reflect the current pricing as of the date of your final registration. Earlier registration pricing will not be honored.

If you have erroneously registered twice for the same event (e.g. twice for the Briefings or same Training class), you must submit a Black Hat Registration Update Form immediately and no later than September 26, 2014 or you will be responsible for the costs of both registrations.

Failure to attend the conference without written notification as detailed above prior to the start of the course will be considered a "No Show" and will result in forfeiture of fees paid in full.

If you register, have not paid, and do not cancel your registration by September 26, 2014, your registration may be automatically cancelled. If you do not respond to Black Hat attempts to contact you regarding the status of your payment, your registration will be cancelled. You will receive notification of your cancelled registration via email.

If you have already registered and paid your registration in full, you are not eligible for a discount if your organization also submits and qualifies for a group registration at a later date. You may cancel your registration, minus a 250.00 Euro processing fee, by September 26, 2014 if you wish to partake in your organization’s group registration.

Black Hat reserves the right to cancel your duplicate or unpaid registrations without notice.
