Please consider that you may have the option to transfer your ticket to a third-party (see paragraph 2 and 7). No refunds will be given to you if you fail to attend our event (no-show) or fail to be on time for whatever reason. Tickets are not taken back.

We will not be responsible for tickets that are lost or stolen.

In these cases you will be entitled to withdraw from the contract and we will refund your ticket payment. We are limited to the amount that remains after credit card and payment processing fees have been incurred and deducted. We are not responsible for other expenses you already made.

7. Right to transfer tickets
Until two weeks prior to the official start of the event you may transfer your ticket to a third party. In order to transfer your ticket you can alter your registration on Eventbrite or inform us by email. Also read paragraph 2.1 regarding attendees.

8. Event content
We do not accept responsibility for the provided content in keynotes, masterclasses and other services during the Service Design Days. Opinions expressed are those of individual speakers and not necessarily those of the organizers of the Service Design Days.


8.1 Changes to the program
The program and lineups for both event days are subject to change at any time and are not guaranteed. We therefore reserve the right to make changes to the program. For example, if an announced speaker is unable to attend the event. By changing the program or lineup we are not obliged to refund (a part of) the ticket(s) being purchased. This holds true for Early Bird tickets and two-day passes as well as for regular tickets and two-day passes.


8.2. Filming, photographing and sound recording
We reserve the right to film, record or photograph at the event for marketing purposes. By attending our conference you agree to be filmed, recorded and/or photographed.

If you do not want to be portrayed, please inform cameramen or photographers at the event.


It is prohibited to make videos of our event. It is allowed to take pictures for personal use and for use on social media but only if a speaker agrees. Commercial use of pictures is only allowed with written prior permission by the organizer of the event (see paragraph 12).

9. Behavior and conduct
Harassment of event participants (attendees, keynote speakers, masterclass leaders, staff) will be not tolerated in any form. Any participant engaging in these activities may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the event organizers. We have the right to remove participants who do not comply with our regulations or (threaten to) disturb the peace. In these cases, they are not entitled to compensation.

10. Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, we accept no responsibility for any loss, which may arise from reliance on information contained on this website or other websites, which may be linked to our site from time to time. We will perform any services with reasonable skill and care, but we will not be liable for erroneous information on our website and related sites. Liability for claims of damages for contractual, quasi-contractual, tortious or other legal grounds is excluded. 
These exclusions and limitations of liability will also apply in favour of us and third-parties contracted by us in the performance of the event. Limitation of liability does not apply in case life, body or health is harmed or if harm is due to wilful misconduct or grossly negligence or if the breach is due to non-fulfilment of an essential cardinal obligation; it will not apply if we have given a guarantee; nor will it apply for damages which are to be compensated under Dutch law. In the above matters, liability is unlimited. This applies for direct damages as well as for indirect damages. Furthermore other mandatory legal claims on liability remain unaffected.

10.1 Force majeure
We reserve the right to cancel, suspend or vary the operation of our obligations to you if events occur which are in the nature of force majeure including (but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) war, fire, flood, storms, plant breakdowns, strikes, lock outs, riot, hostilities, non-availability of material, speakers or suppliers, or any event outside of our control. We shall not be held liable or cover your expenses for any breach of contract or tort resulting from such an event. In short: we are not responsible for any loss or damage as a result of a substitution, alteration, cancellation or postponement of the event.

10.2 Travel and other expenses
In the case we provided you with names of hotels, restaurants, travel agents, airline companies or others, we are not responsible and cannot be held liable for their failures, lack of quality, delays, etc.
