General Terms and Conditions for the execution of open seminars, workshops, group training, and other events organized by imbus Canada Corporation.

General information:
These “General terms and conditions for the execution of open seminars, workshops, group training courses and other events at the imbus Academy” are binding for contracts with the companies’ imbus Canada Corporation, Toronto, Ontario – henceforth referred to as imbus Canada.

imbus Canada uses the event areas according to the policy of the lease contract agreed upon with the property owner. All participant(s) at the free or paid events should abide by the underlying general terms and conditions for the events, as well as the conditions of the property owner. The latter should be available on request to the organizer by the property owner. With registration and participation for the events, you agree to accept these General Terms and Conditions for Events.*

Registration can be submitted in a written form via postal mail, e-mail or online form submission. The organizer will assume that the undersigned person is entitled to register, based on the data submitted during the registration. The organizer is not obliged to explicitly check the legal validity of the signature.

The acceptance of the participant(s) registration by imbus Canada is only binding when it has been confirmed by imbus Canada in a written form. The confirmation can also be given by telefax or e-mail. The decision on whether to accept the registrations of participant(s) is exclusively made by imbus Canada. An entitlement to the participation does not exist.*

Prices and Price Changes:
All prices are per person in Canadian $ and do not include the applicable TAX. The invoice will be issued immediately after participation in a training course. If not agreed otherwise, payment of the course fee is due without deductions and within 14 days of receipt of invoice.

If not stated otherwise during the registration process, participation fees includes cost for the required worksheets and handouts, refreshments during breaks and lunch, as well as the cost of providing the necessary hardware and software and their use during the duration of the course. Expenses incurred as a result of certification exams by a third party, journeys to and from the venue, accommodation, transfers to the venue, and other ancillary services are not included and are listed separately in the bill, if booked via imbus Canada. In such case that the training course includes practical exercises on a PC, PCs will be made available with a maximum of two participant(s) to one PC.*

Variations in the Execution of the Course:
Reception of the course confirmation does not constitute a legal claim that the respective training course will take place at the specified time and place. Training may vary in time and place, the conducting trainer as well as smaller changes in course contents with regard to the training description. Should changes towards the data on your course confirmation become necessary, we will notify you of this immediately.
Delegates disturbing the course of the training considerably may be excluded from further participation in the course. In this case, an administrative fee of 20% of the course cost is raised for the part of the course that has not been visited by the delegate.

Deviations in the performance:
In general, the events are performed in the ways that are stated in the corresponding event description. imbus Canada reserves the right to make changes which are necessary due to updates or upgrades to the events or for organizational reasons.*

Changing or Cancelling a Booking by imbus Canada:
imbus Canada has the right to cancel the event before or after the completion of the registration and also at the last-minute, if the event is not of interest for imbus Canada due to unforeseeable low participation rate.
