Payments by Credit Card
We use WePay as our processor and, as such, have no access to your credit card information.
We do substantially all of our marketing with web-based tools including email services. The services, currently Amazon Web Services (AWS) are very secure and, in our opinion, little or no risk of breach. The only information stored is First and Last Name, Company Name and email address. You may receive additional email messages for upcoming events or follow-up from a past event. You can always unsubscribe from our mailing list, by clicking on Unsubscribe. You can also unsubscribe by including unsubscribe as the topic in a Reply email.
Registering and paying for Accounting Education Institute webinars or other events creates a registration record in our online database maintained by RegFox. The information stored is First and Last Name, Company Name and email address. Current year registrations are also kept on Microsoft SharePoint with the One Drive interface.
Cancellations can be made at any time up to 5pm two working day before the Accounting Education Institute webinar or event and full credit will usually be issued immediately, but no later than 72 hours and we’ll notify you when the credit has been issued. While we issue your refund timely, depending on your credit card company, refunds can take between 2-5 business days to be reflected on your payment card account.

Photography and Video at a live Accounting Education Institute
For live events we may take pictures during the event that may be later used in promoting other events. Names are never tagged to a photo. Video clips may also be taken. Most of these will be short clips of the speaker and people in the session room. If you see a photo or video being taken that you wish to not be used, simply state that to the photographer and it will be deleted on the spot. You may encounter a staff member requesting you to comment about the event (and the fun you are having and describing what a great event you are attending 😊). You are under no obligation to participate, with or without video.
For webinars or other web based events no recording of individuals or their names occurs.

Releasing your email address or other information is always 100% optional on your part.
