Cancellation by Drift Limits
Drift Limits may have to cancel an Event due to circumstances arising beyond its control, for example adverse weather conditions. This will usually be in the interests of safety. Where an event is cancelled in its entirety for such reasons, Drift Limits will endeavour to notify participants of the cancellation, although Drift Limits cannot guarantee that participants will be informed of such cancellation before the date of the Event. Where an event is cancelled in its entirety for such reasons, Drift Limits will endeavour to offer either:
a place on an alternative, later event (subject to availability) up to the face value of the existing booking
- If Drift Limits cannot provide an alternative date, a full refund.
- If Drift Limits cancel an Event for reasons other than the circumstances beyond its control, a full refund will be offered.
