Personal information may be used to meet your requests: such as special lodging or dietary needs.

Personal information may be used for auditing or analysis to improve our program and services.

Personal information may be shared with third parties such as the hotel and our other vendors

When third parties assist us in processing registration information, we require that they comply with our privacy policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security issues.

Information also may be shared with third parties in certain circumstances, such as compliance with legal processes.


The cancellation policy of Chesapeake PETS is simple. There are no full refunds after the date that is 2 weeks prior to conference stary — unless cancellation is caused by:  death or hospitalization of the participant or an immediate family member, or the cancellation is approved by the appropriate District Governor and communicated to the CPETS Registrar.

Refunds for lodging fees are available to the extent that lodging reservations can be cancelled without cost to Chesapeake PETS.

Refunds for cost of meals and breaks are available to the extent that the meal guarantees have not been submitted to the hotel and reduction doe not result in cost to Chesapeake PETS.
