Financial Transactions
The CSC does accept payments via selected credit cards for various fees, events, services and products. Information required to process such payments may be provided by phone or online at the payer's preference.

For one online method, the CSC uses secure encrypted interfaces to request and receive the required information, via an online form that details the item(s) and amount(s) being paid, any applicable added tax, the total for charge to the credit card, and the credit card information for processing by the CSC office.

For another online method, the CSC uses secure encrypted interfaces to request and receive the required information, via an online form that details the item(s) and amount(s) being paid, any applicable added tax and the total for charge to the credit card; All of this is tagged with a CSC transaction reference. The payer is then linked automatically to a reputable secure transaction processing service that is provided only with the total amount and transaction reference. This integrated link allows the payer to authorize the transaction directly without providing any financial information to the CSC. After the payment has been authorized, the CSC receives information correlating the financial authorization with the transaction details.

Regardless of the precautions taken by the CSC, yourself, and the secure financial processing service, the security of information passed across the internet cannot be guaranteed. Consequently the CSC cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit via this site, and you transmit such information at your own risk.


Refunds
Charges from the CSC are primarily various fees, events, services and products. Information required to process such payments may be provided by phone or online at the payer's preference.

There are no refunds (either full or pro-rated) for any fees that have been paid. Charges for advertising in a print or digital CSC publication that has already been committed to production are also non-refundable.

Many of the chargeable CSC events involve significant advance commitments to 3-rd party suppliers. Consequently, a payment for participating in such events is generally not refundable if you miss the event, for any reason. If you contact the CSC administrative office by email well in advance of the event, they can advise if any consideration can be made for your non-participation.

If an event is cancelled for any reason, the CSC will offer the option of applying corresponding prepayments to another CSC chargeable item, or to be issued a suitable refund.

The CSC accepts no liability for any amount other than the CSC charges.
