I signed a agreement with a conference organiser sponsorship

Customer Question

Hi there, I signed a agreement with a conference organiser for a sponsorship but cancelled it within 14 days. The event hasn't even taken place. Now they say that I have to pay the due amount as they had a cancellation policy on their order form. The agreement was only signed by me electronically and didn't have their initials or signatures. Where do I stand?

Thank you for your question.

Under the UK, this would fall under the Consumer Contract Regulations.

You would have a right to cancel within 14 days and obtain a full refund provided that the service had not been provided. I think the issue you have is that it seems you may have signed in a company name which would mean that you would not have the same rights as individual consumers.

I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind regards
