  • Why I am not being redirected to payment gateway after completing pre-registration?

    Registrants can pay either by credit card or wire transfer. Following pre-registration, a link to the payment gateway will be sent to the delegate’s email address. This link serves firstly to set the delegate’s account, allowing access to the website, and payment of the registration fee, which, if preferred via credit card, is provided by myticket.al. Please check your spam folder, as sometimes the link ends up there. If you still encounter problems, we may reissue the payment link, so please let us know.

    Notify us at privacyconference2019@idp.al, we will cancel your pre-registration and notify you accordingly. You may then register again.

    The conference will take place at the Palace of Congresses, which is situated at the “Dëshmorët e Kombit Boulevard”, a stone’s throw from the city center.

Euros 40,00 handling fee. Written notification of cancellation received after 16 September 2019: No refund.

No refund or discount can be given for non-attendance of events, early departure or cancellation of any function listed in the registration entitlements

  • Does my registration fee include accommodation, airport transfers or visa applications?

    None of the above is included in the registration fee. Your entitlements are listed at: https://privacyconference2019.info/registration/registration-entitlements/

  • I do not wish to be photographed or video recorded during the conference, where can I opt out and how you will ensure it?

    You should contact the host of the 41 ICDPPC at: http://www.idp.al/na-kontaktoni/?lang=en A badge with a specific ribbon color will be provided to you at the first registration desk you will reach.

  • I would like to choose a different payment method, neither wire transfer or credit card work for me; can I receive a simple invoice stating the amount to pay?

    We may provide a receipt, upon request, at privacyconference2019@idp.al. You need to state the name of the delegate, his/her title, his/her organization, and the latter’s address. Don’t forget to email to us the bank receipt as soon as possible, in order to receive your final confirmation with the delegate unique barcode.

  • I attempted to pay via credit card, but failed to complete the process. The message I received states: “Your payment was not successful. Please contact your bank for the reasons why your card was not able to make a payment.

    – There are generally two reasons for this: 1. You are using a card which is not supported by the vendor’s system (you may only use Visa or Mastercard). 2. You are hitting the Back button before submitting the completed form, thus impeding the payment process to complete. You may need to repeat the process. – If none of the above applies, please contact us at privacyconference2019@idp.al. We may re-issue the registration link or explore other possible solutions.

  • I want to pay for all my colleagues at once. Can I do that?

    This is technically feasible, but a special payment link needs to be generated upon request. We would recommend clearing payment for each single registrant.

  • Can I use the same credit card for different purchases?

    Yes, it is possible using the same credit card for more than one ticket purchase.

  • I’ve registered a colleague, but now he/she is unable to attend, can another colleague attend in their place?

    Yes, you may replace a delegate with no additional cost, by contacting privacyconference2019@idp.al.

  • Can I pay several persons’ conference fee at the same time through bank transfer?

    Several delegate fees may be paid through a single bank transfer. It is, nevertheless, of paramount importance to specify the names of the delegates in the transfer receipt, which you should subsequently forward to us in order to receive the final confirmations and barcodes for each of them. Please make sure to determine the right category that applies to them from the table here, i.e. if they’re from “Business & Government” or “Member authorities & Observers”, etc.

  • If I don’t forward to you the bank receipt after paying the ticket, will I receive the final confirmation and delegate barcode?

    You must send your bank receipt in order to receive your confirmation and the unique barcode. Failing to do so, will probably impede you access to the 41st ICDPPC. Our team at the registration desk will nevertheless be able to assist you at any time.

  • It is not clear to me when the Open Session begins!

    Just drop us an email at privacyconference2019@idp.al stating your name, organization, travel dates, and we will issue you the invitation letter.

  • None of the payment methods work for me, can I pay cash upon arrival?

    Unfortunately no cash payments will be accepted.

  • I have special dietary requirements!

    All special dietary requirements should be sent, at least 2 weeks ahead of the Conference, at: privacyconference2019@idp.al, clearly stating the requirement and if applicable a short list of do’s and don’ts. Sometimes only stating “vegetarian” or “vegan” will not suffice. “Kosher” food will, regrettably, not be possible due to lack of appropriate knowledge in related dietary norms. “Halal” food should generally be considered compliant with the menu that will be served, both at buffet and banquet services. No swine products will be served at the official 41ICDPPC suppers. However, alcoholic beverages may be offered, so please make sure to seek advice from your host up-front. Other religious restrictions must also be notified ahead of the intended travel date, in any case no later than 2 weeks before the start of the Conference at privacyconference2019@idp.al. Same applies for all requests for gluten-free and/or diary-free and/or allergies.

  • I’m a speakers, organizer or participant at an official 41st ICDPPC Side Event, but I do not wish to attend the 41st ICDPPC: am I required to pay the registration fee?

    Side events speakers and attendees are not required to sign in for the 41ICDPPC, which means that they’re exempted from the payment of the fee. However, they cannot access any other ICDPPC related event, either programme or official social/networking event. Should they wish to access these events, then the relevant fee category would apply as per the table here.

  • What kind of accessibility arrangements are available?

    IDP will provide support services upon request. Please request accessibility services or accommodations for people who experience disabilities at the time of registration and/or three weeks in advance to maximize our efforts. Contact information for accessibility services is privacyconference2019@idp.al.

  • Will there be simultaneous interpretation? If so, what languages?

    41st ICDPPC will provide simultaneous interpretation in English, French, Spanish and Albanian for the duration of the Closed and Open Sessions.
