Your Refundable Registration cover does not extend to the next year's edition in case you decide to defer or if your registration is deferred automatically by the organiser.

3. None of the previous cases 

In case it is already past 24 hours from your order and you have not purchased the Refund Protect upgrade the refund request falls under the event organizer's specific cancellation policy. That will differ between each individual event organizer and their Refund Policy. Due to this, it is not guaranteed that the customer will receive a refund for the cancellation.
To request a cancellation of your order please write directly to the organiser of the event in question. Organiser's email address can be found in confirmation email.
