If an event is cancelled by ZEW, thattendee shall have no right to compensation for travel and accommodation expenses or an inability to work, unless such losses occurred as a result of grossly negligent or deliberate behaviour on the part of ZEW. The foregoing shall also apply to necessary changes made on short notice to event dates and times. If an event is cancelled due to an insufficient number of participants, ZEW will provide notice of cancellation at least two weeks in advance. In the event of disruptions to performance, ZEW undertakes to use all reasonable efforts to help remedy or mitigate the disruption.
