However, we will not be liable for any other costs incurred including (for example) travel charges or any consequential damages, even if we were advised of them.

If the OSGi Alliance has to cancel the Exam for any reason, then we will refund 100% of any prepaid Course Fee, but we will not be liable for any other costs incurred including (for example) travel charges or any consequential damages, even if we were advised of them.
