What if the live stream or a session recording fails?

Thanks to careful planning and vendor selection, AAPP anticipates that AAPP sessions presented virtually for the Summit will be successfully transmitted to the virtual audience and available as a recording for home-study within 2-4 weeks after the event (unless otherwise noted).

In the unlikely event of a recording failure, AAPP will attempt to re-record session(s) for attendee viewing within 3 months of the event. As long as 75% of AAPP-planned educational session recordings are provided for home-study within 3 months of the event, refunds will not be issued to registrants related to live transmission problems, recording problems, or attendee-specific problems accessing the sessions.

In the unlikely event of transmission failure of industry supported events or non-CE activities (i.e., an industry symposium), refunds will not be offered.
