Privacy, Payments and Refunds Policies

The following policies are adopted by the Scientific and Medical Network (SMN): 

  1. Privacy Policy – We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.
  2. Payment Flow and Delivery Policy –  Membership becomes active upon receipt of payment and members have the options of automatically renewing an annual or monthly basis. Delivery of the SMN Journal Paradigm Explorer is made three times during the year of membership. All members with a valid email address registered with the SMN will receive an electronic version of Paradigm Explorer for those who have opted for a paper version, this will be posed to the address registered with the SMN. Please Contact Us should your email or postal address change, or if you wish to cancel any automatic renewal of your membership fee. Payments for Conferences, Courses and Events organised  by the SMN are in advance of the relevant date. 
  3. Refund / Cancellation Policy. Membership can be cancelled at any time, but such a cancellation does not attract a refund except in exceptional circumstances. The cancellation and refund policy for each conference and other event should be posted with the event details and any refund will tend to grow smaller, the near the date of the event. Please Contact Us should you wish to cancel your booking for any SMN event.
