The National Perinatal Association (NPA) is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy.
This policy explains what types of information is collected by the NPA conference website, npaconference.org,
and how this information is used.
IDENTIFIABLE PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you become a member of NPA, register for an event, or sign up for e-communications you voluntarily provide us with contact information, like your name and e-mail address.
We will use this information for the specific, limited purpose of sending you information about NPA programs, initiatives, events, advocacy opportunities, and membership benefits.
You may always "opt out," either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive communication from NPA.
NPA does not provide, share, sell, or rent your contact information.
NPA uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to deliver website content, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic (e.g. Google Analytics).
Our site www.nationalperinatal.org uses "cookie" messages to automatically help provide better services. Cookies remind a website who you are and about your preferences for using our website based on what you've done and told us before. The "cookie" is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you need to navigate our site. Cookies also help us understand which parts of our sites are most popular with visitors. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your Web browser accordingly.

Our sites www.nationalperinatal.org and npaconference.org include links to external websites.

Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.
CONFERENCE REGISTRATION and ATTENDANCE
In order to promote community health, accommodate participants' needs, and promote participation we are hosting NPA's 2023 conference as both a virtual and in-person meeting. Whether you attend in-person or virtually you will have access to the same conference content, will be eligible for the same continuing education credits, and will pay the same registration fee.
Your conference registration does not guarantee that you will be able to attend an in-person meeting.
If we are unable to meet for an in-person conference due to public health mandates, the conference will not be canceled. It will be convened as a virtual event.
If the affected virtual event is terminated due to a Force Majeure occurrence before the first day of the conference on April 19, 2023, then NPA will reschedule the affected virtual event and your registration fee will be applied to the rescheduled conference.
If you plan to attend the in-person conference but present with signs or symptoms of respiratory illness upon arrival at the meeting you will be asked to attend virtually and will not be admitted to shared learning spaces.
By purchasing and redeeming conference registration YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS.
CANCELLATIONS, SUBSTITUTIONS, and REFUNDS
We understand that it is difficult to make plans during this pandemic. If you need to cancel your conference registration we ask that you do it before Wednesday, March 1, 2023. We will refund the cost of your registration, minus a $75 cancellation fee.
No refunds will be granted after Monday, March 20, 2023.
No refunds will be granted at any time for no-shows.
Registrants unable to attend may send a substitute in their place. Make sure that all registration changes, corrections, substitutions, and/or TBD updates are completed by Monday, March 20, 2023.
NPA may cancel a conference when circumstances beyond NPA's control—including, but not limited to, acts of nature, governmental authority, or pandemic illness in the United States—make it impractical or impossible to host the conference or may put participants in harm’s way.
NPA will refund the registration fee paid by the registrant only if the conference is canceled. * See registration and attendance.
Refunds for conference exhibitors' and sponsors' fees will only be granted if the conference is canceled.
NPA membership is nonrefundable. No refunds will be granted at any time for membership dues.
NPA complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act and strives to ensure that no individual with a disability is deprived of the opportunity to participate in this program solely by reason of that disability.
Through its agents, NPA will provide reasonable accommodations for a candidate with a disability who requests accommodations.
Requests can be made by sending a written request 21 days in advance of the virtual conference or 10 days in advance of the in-person event to Kristy Love at email@example.com
PHOTOGRAPHY, AUDIO, and VIDEO RECORDING
When registering for the virtual conference we ask participants to provide an email, text, phone or (for special needs) other contact where they can be reached during the virtual conference. Failure to register, provide such contact, or be available via the contact provided may result in being disconnected from the virtual conference, without notice or process.
Registration constitutes consent to audio and visual recording (and use and alteration of the recording) by the NPA at the meeting for non-commercial purposes that are aligned with our mission.
Do not make audio or visual recordings of the conference in any medium—and do not distribute audio or visual recordings of the conference (via social media or any other means). Only NPA or its representatives may do so, after warning participants to give them an opportunity to opt out.
Do not take or distribute pictures of or copy research posters/presentation materials unless explicit permission is granted.
