CHANGES AND CANCELLATION BY US
We will do our utmost to ensure that the Retreat goes ahead, as we’re just as excited about it, as you are.

Although we’ll strive to do whatever we can to bring you the Retreat, as advertised, we reserve the right to alter Retreat arrangements, at our discretion. Co-ordinating the Retreat involves managing many variables, some of which are beyond our control and may cause us to make necessary changes to the Retreat. We will notify you of any significant changes, via email, as soon as practicably possible.
In this section of these Terms, “Event of Force Majeure” means an event beyond the control of The Queen of Confidence, which prevents a party from complying with any of its obligations under these Terms, including but not limited to, further consequences from the Covid-19 pandemic, an act of God (such as, but not limited to, fires, explosions, earthquakes, drought, tidal waves and floods), war, military action, hostilities, rebellion, riots, strikes, virus, pandemic, epidemic, famine or plague, acts of threat or terrorism or action of a court.

- will provide you with written notice outlining the inability to meet any obligations.
In light of the uncertainty of Covid-19 and restrictions on social gatherings, if The Queen of Confidence is unable to host the Retreat, then you agree that the Retreat will be postponed and rescheduled for a later date.
