Dîner De Perfusion (DDP) is a national organization that licenses the use of its trademark, name & brand to local organizers. Not one event or one local host/organizer defines the over-all intended experience, brand or mission of Dîner De Perfusion which has prevue over all events. Any derogatory statements, defamation, negative media, press, etc. may not only be extremely harmful to any future local host/organizer that may wish to host a DDP Event in that same city, but they could be detrimental to the national overall advocacy mission of organization as well at the non-profits organization and advocacy groups that benefit from our events. Therefore, it is extremely important that we protect our intellectual properties vigorously.

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, if we postpone/reschedule an event, we will, of course, honor your registration at the next rescheduled/event date. If you cannot make the rescheduled/next event date, please follow our NO SHOW POLICY above.
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 our next event’s registration cost is more than the $100.00, you CANNOT use the postponed event registration and may be charged the difference.
When purchasing a ticket/registering for an event, you agree that If a chargeback is initiated due to a postponed event claiming that services or items not received or for any reason whatsoever, you the registrant, will be responsible for the chargeback fee as stated our Charge Back Policy.
Postponed events are NOT canceled events. However, given the high level of logistical planning of such an intricate event new event dates may not be finalized for up to 6 months from the postponement notice. If for any reason the member is unable to attend the event on the re-scheduled date, a refund request can be sent and will be honored.
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, Dîner de Perfusion event membership/registrations/sales/partnership are final and we are unable to offer refunds for any reason, whatsoever. However, if in accordance with our NO SHOW & EVENT POSTPONEMENT Policies above, we will honor event registration at a future event.
Did you purchase an extra membership package(s) or event ticket(s) by mistake? Consider gifting the extra membership(s)/event ticket(s) to a family member, friend or coworker. Simply email us at with the email address associated with the extra membership or ticket and the updated contact information for the ticket or membership and well switch ownership.
PLEASE NOTE: Only #DDP Members can register and attend events.
Should a chargeback or dispute of any kind occur for any reason, Diner De Perfusion/HNC Enterprises, Inc. will charge the registrants card on file with up to 250% of the disputed/charged-back amount (Charge Back Fee) + the Principle (original paid amount) and Processing Fee, in addition to any court costs and legal fees (if necessary). If a credit card is not on file, an invoice will be generated and the registrant will be required to pay within 48 hours.
Furthermore, by making a payment you agree 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 No Refund/Charge Back Policy stated above.
