MCEE Policies

Registration/Cancellation Policy

MCEE offers various programs to engage with students, teachers, and members of communities across Minnesota. These programs in economics and personal finance are often funded by a combination of donors and registration fees. In order to ensure that all individuals are aware of their obligations as participants in a MCEE program, this section of the website details relevant policies for registration and participation in MCEE activities.

 

Registration

Registration fees cover a fraction of the program costs and allow MCEE to continue offering high-quality programs to all of our stakeholders. 

In the event of a program's cancellation or a change to a program's date or location, participants will be notified via email. If MCEE cancels a program, participants will receive a full refund. If a participant wishes to cancel their registration, they may do so provided that they withdraw their registration at least 10 business days before the start date of the program. Unless otherwise noted, refunds for withdrawn registrations will be issued, less a $10 cancellation fee.

Individuals will be charged a $15 fee for checks with insufficient funds and/or declined credit cards.

 

Data Privacy

The privacy of participants is very important to MCEE. The registration information provided to MCEE is considered private data under state and federal law. Provided information will be used for the purposes of administering the program and to contact you about upcoming programs.

 

Participation Waiver

Participants in MCEE programs will be asked to sign a waiver prior to the start of the program.

Participants (or parent or legal guardian of participants under the age of 18) will forever release, indemnify, and hold harmless Regents of the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Council on Economic Education, their directors, employees, volunteers, leaders, sponsors, program organizers, promoters, and each of their agents representatives, successors, and assigns, and all other personal associated with the program ("Releasees") from any and all loss, cost, expense, or other damage of any kind resulting from their participation in the program, including but not limited to insurance subrogation and attorney's fees together and singly, "Claims"). The release and promise applies even to claims based in whole or in part on releasees' negligence and/or gross negligence, to the extent permitted by law, but not releasees willful or wanton acts.

 

Media Consent

Unless otherwise notified, the Minnesota Council on Economic Education, their agents, employees, volunteers, or program partners are authorized to record photographs or other likenesses of participants on videotape, audiotape, film, photograph, or any other medium and use, reproduce, modify, and publicly exhibit such recordings without limitation or restructure for any purpose. Participants further consent to the use of their name, voice, and biographical material in connection with such recordings. The photographs or other materials shall remain the property of the Minnesota Council on Economic Education or its partners.
