MEMBERSHIP POLICY

Monster Mornings events are Member-Only events; as such an active membership plan is required to access/attend all events.  To become a member, interested parties must submit a membership form and pay an initial membership fee. Should the potential member’s application be rejected, a refund minus the application processing fee will be processed.   

 

Membership Fees are auto-renewed monthly until the member cancels their plan.  Should a member’s membership payment lapse, payment of all outstanding back fees will be required, prior to re-activation of the membership.   

 

Each level-specific membership plan allows attendance & membership benefits.  Event registrations are on a first-come, first-serve basis and the member must pre-register for an event to guarantee entrance.

​​​

Membership Plans CAN NOT be transferred or reassigned. 

PLEASE NOTE: An immediate termination of membership, rejection and/or ejection from an event, forfeiture of membership and all event registration-related costs and a ban on future membership and/or attending any future Monster Mornings event may occur if member is found to be in breach of Monster Mornings’ Website Terms, Conditions of Use and Policies, violates any rules or Code of Conduct Standards, or at the discretion of a staff member with or without notice or cause at any time.  

Please Note:  Members, Partners, Volunteers, Sponsors, etc. are responsible for the actions of their guest(s).

Please refer to our Refund Policy below for all refund questions.​

EVENT POSTPONEMENT POLICY

Rarely do we postpone/reschedule an event. However, there are times that we, as event producers, will deem it best (i.e. weather, Washington, DC security alerts, etc) or simply due to circumstances beyond our control and we have no other choice.

With this being said, should an event be postponed/rescheduled, we will, of course, honor registered guests registrations at the rescheduled event date. If the member is unable to attend the rescheduled event for any reason, only then may the member request and refund, which will honor, making an exception to our refund policy.

 

When purchasing a ticket/registering for an event, you agree, that in the case of an event postponement, you WILL NOT initiate a chargeback dispute for non-receipt of product/services.  Should a chargeback or dispute be initiated as the result of a postponed event, claiming non-receipt of services or product, or for any reason whatsoever, you the member/registrant will be responsible, and agree to pay any and all fees related to Monster Mornings long-standing Chargeback Policy.


PLEASE NOTE:  Registration pricing MUST be equal to that of the POSTPONED Event.  For example:  If your registration cost for the first (postponed) event was $100.00 and the next event’s registration cost is more than the $100.00, you CANNOT use the postponed event registration and may be charged the difference.

To reiterate, postponed events are NOT canceled events.  However, given the high level of logistical planning of such an intricate event, depending on the event, new event dates may not be finalized for up to 4 months from the postponement notice.

 

REFUND POLICY

We maintain a NO REFUND/ALL SALES FINAL Policy.

 

Unfortunately, due to the nature of our events, the approval and clearance process and donation/payment deadlines, as well as stated on the event page, throughout our website, at the Point of Sale website and in your confirmation email, Monster Mornings membership/registrations/sales are final and we are unable to offer refunds for any reason, whatsoever. However, if in accordance with our EVENT POSTPONEMENT Policies above, we may honor refund requests at that time.

​​​

CHARGEBACK POLICY

Should a chargeback or dispute of any kind occur for any reason, Monster Mornings/HNC Enterprises, Incorporated will charge the Member's credit card on file a DISPUTE FEE which includes the original disputed amount (Principle) + $25 per transaction (Dispute Fee) + 4.5% processing fee (Processing Fee).  If there is no credit card on file, a Dispute Invoice will be generated and the registrant will be required to pay the Dispute Invoice, AS WELL AS, cancel/withdraw the dispute/chargeback within 24 hours of notice/receipt.

 

Failure to meet the 24 hours deadline outlined above will result in Monster Mornings/HNC Enterprises, Incorporated charging the registrant's card on file a CHARGEBACK FEE which includes 250% of the disputed/charged-back amount (Chargeback Principle  Fee) + the original paid amount (Principle) and a 4.5% processing fee (Processing Fee). If a credit card is not on file, a Chargeback Fee Invoice will be generated and the cardholder will be required to pay the invoice within 24 hours of notice/receipt OR contact us to make payment arrangements.

Furthermore, by making a payment the Cardholder agrees to take full personal responsibility for said payment in the event the CARDHOLDER, AUTHORIZED USER, ACCOUNT HOLDER or FINANCIAL INSTITUTION rejects or disputes the charges and will pay the merchant in accordance with its Chargeback Policy stated above.


Should a chargeback, dispute or financial institution rejection happen for any reason, and not reversed within 24 hours of notice or in cases of intentional violation of the above Chargeback Policy, an immediate termination of membership, rejection and/or ejection from an event, and forfeiture of membership and all event registration-related costs and a ban on future membership and/or attending any future Monster Mornings events may occur.  Monster Mornings may pursue all available legal remedies, including seeking monetary damages, injunctive relief, and an order that you pay court costs and attorney’s fees.
