The Organization will strive to initiate automatic refunds within a period of 7 days following the end of the Festival. The timing is subject to possible delays which may occur beyond the control of the Organization. The refunds will be conducted by the same payment method which was used for the online top-up. The timing when the payment is visible on the account statement from the electronic payment provider depends on the currency, the country and the necessary processing time where the payment provider is established.
