Hack Your Lives Booking Terms and Privacy Policy

DEFCON Furs is a production of Hack Your Lives, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. The hotel arrangements, payments collected, and agreements are managed by Hack Your Lives.

You must be 21 years of age or older, have a valid government-issued ID, and a credit/debit card in your name to check into a hotel room at Harrah’s. You will be required to place a refundable deposit for charges to the room upon check-in with the hotel. All hotel policies must be followed and the hotel has the final say about your reservation, room location, and fees. If you have any questions about hotel policies or what you need in order to check-in, please call the Harrah's Las Vegas hotel.

You agree that we do not represent DEF CON in any way. Do not ask DEF CON for support for reservations made with our booking code or on our website. Please contact us directly.

You agree that we do not represent Harrah’s Las Vegas or its affiliates. After you book a room on our website, you will receive a reservation code. This reservation code is only valid on our website and is not connected to Harrah’s booking systems in any way. You can not call the hotel and ask about reservations made through our website. Please contact us directly.

Approximately seven days before your check-in date, we will contact you with your Harrah’s issued reservation code. This is the code you will use to check-in at the hotel front desk. If you lose the code, the hotel will be able to look up your reservation by name.

When you book using our website, you can specify your room type, your preference to be connected to another room, and request to be placed near other specific guests. While we will make every effort to accommodate these requests, the hotel has the final say on what room you are assigned.

When you book using our website, you can make changes to your reservation check-in date, check-out date, and room type. If you make changes that increase the cost of the reservation, the balance will be split across the remaining payment schedule. If you make changes that decrease the cost of the reservation, the final payment will be adjusted or a refund will be issued for the difference if changes are made before June 20, 2020.

NO REFUNDS will be issued after June 20, 2020. However, name changes on your reservation will be accepted at no additional cost until July 27th, 2020. Before June 20, 2020, you may cancel your reservation(s) made on this site and all payments will be refunded, less the Stripe processing fees. Refunds will go back to the card(s) used to pay. Once a refund is requested, it is final. Refunds can take up to 10 business days to appear on your account. We have no control over this time frame as it is handled by Stripe.

Payment Schedule:

Full Option:

The total cost of the booking including taxes and resort fees due at time of booking.

Quarterly Option:

  • 1/4 of the total cost of the booking including taxes and resort fees due at time of booking.
  • 1/4 of the total cost of the booking including taxes and resort fees due 2/15/2020
  • 1/4 of the total cost of the booking including taxes and resort fees due 4/18/2020
  • Remainder 1/4 of the total cost of the booking including taxes and resort fees due 6/20/2020

If you book using the quarterly option after one or more of the payment due dates, you will need to pay the first 1/4 + any past scheduled payment amounts. For example, if you book with the quarterly option in March 2020, you will need to pay the first 1/4 payment amount + 2/15/2020 payment amount at the time of booking. The remaining payments will be due per the normal quarterly option schedule. All bookings made after June 19th, 2020 require full payment at the time of reservation and are non-refundable.

You authorize Hack Your Lives to charge your card on file automatically for the payments and schedule shown at the time of booking. You also authorize Hack Your Lives to charge your card automatically for failed/declined payments periodically and upon change of card on file.

Privacy:

All information collected by our website will be kept private and not shared with any third party other than as specified in this document.

Your room reservation information, email, and guest names will be shared with Harrah’s Las Vegas to facilitate the room bookings.

Your information will only be accessible by the executive staff of Hack Your Lives for the purposes of making changes or providing support to you.

We use the account email provided at the time of booking as your primary authentication method via a verification link sent to your email for login. If you desire, you can optionally enable 2FA authentication in your account settings which will work with any Time-based One-time Password apps (like Google Authenticator and Authy).
