Terms and Conditions

Conditions of Registration

Your registration will be regarded as provisional until such time as payment has been received, through one of the methods stated on the registration webpage. After receipt of payment, your registration will be approved by the conference committee. Other modes of payment, including personal cheques and money orders are not acceptable.

All amounts quoted on this web site are in New Zealand dollars unless explicitly stated otherwise. It is your responsibility to ensure that payment is made in New Zealand dollars if your method of payment incurs a clearance fee, this amount must be added to the amount paid.

Each paper in the symposium must have at least one registered author. The registered author of a paper may be a student on a student registration. Student registrations are available to bona-fide students only.

Immigration matters

Note that approval of your registration does not automatically guarantee you entry into New Zealand, as this may be subject to your ability to obtain an appropriate visitor visa from Immigration New Zealand, and appropriate transit visa from any country you may need to pass through on your way to New Zealand (e.g., Australia or USA). Please consult the Immigration NZ web site for more details on whether you require a visa. Many countries from developed world are visa-free, with some notable exceptions, and delegates who are not from a visa-free country will usually require a visitor visa.

The ORSNZ/NZSA cannot guarantee the outcome of such visa applications. ORSNZ/NZSA is not able to assist with or support other visa applications. Note that whilst we endeavour to provide prompt notifications regarding abstract submission and registration confirmation, we cannot guarantee that these will be provided in ample time for you to apply for a visa.

Withdrawals and refunds of registration fees

Refer to the conditions of registration provided on the AUT Events registration website.

As a New Zealand-based conference, the ORSNZ/NZSA conference is subject to the New Zealand Privacy Act 1993 and its amending legislation. Under this legislation, we must tell you for which purpose we collect data from you. You also have the right to know which personal data we hold about you and to have it corrected if it is erroneous.
ORSNZ/NZSA retain your registration data solely for the purpose of organizing the symposium and for the purpose of contacting you if the need arises in this context. This includes access of other participants to your contact details, such as your e-mail address. ORSNZ/NZSA make every reasonable effort to keep your registration data secure from unauthorized access and does not on-sell or pass on data to third parties except for the purpose of notifying you of upcoming events, and except to the extent as may be required of the organizing committee under applicable legislation in New Zealand and elsewhere.
