Cancellation policy

CANCELLATION An authorized official of the RHFSC has the right to cancel the event at any time, if the RHFSC proves to be unsuitable due to the following: 1. Fire or other calamity caused by nature. 2. Labor dispute. 3. Notice of violations by the City of San Diego or the Balboa Park Administration. 4. State of National Emergency imposed by the US Government. 5. Any other occurrences beyond the control of the RHFSC. In the event of such cancellation, User will not be liable for payment of fees for cancelled programs, nor will the RHFSC have any further liability or obligations with regard to the canceled event. Should such action by the RHFSC become necessary, the RHFSC will provide suitable time(s) for rescheduling the event. It is the User’s responsibility to observe and execute all the procedures and policies mentioned above and hereafter. Failure to comply will result in the RHFSC’s right to terminate the Facilities Use Agreement and the User’s forfeiture of all fees paid. The RHFSC also retains the right to restrict certain aspects of an event if said aspects would jeopardize the safety of the attendees or any staff at the RHFSC. A 50 percent initial payment, credited towards the usage fee, is required within two weeks of RHFSC receiving the signed Facilities Use Agreement. This initial payment is 100% refundable if the event is canceled more than 90 days before the event date, 50% refundable if canceled between 60-90 days before the event date, and is not refundable if canceled less than 60 days before the event date. The $500 security deposit shall be returned in the event of any cancellations.
