Public Training Courses – General Terms & Conditions
These terms and conditions form an integral part of the Contract on Training concluded between GIZ and the Participant. Together with the Contract on Training, they shall supersede all prior discussions, correspondence and representations. Brochures and other advertisements are for information purposes only and do not constitute a part of the Contract on Training. The training description provided directly with the registration form upon registration for each individual course supersedes all other announcements and becomes part of the contract.
These General Terms and Conditions are subject to change by GIZ without notice. Changes will apply to any Contract on Training concluded after the date of the change.
Any terms and conditions proposed by the Participant shall not be deemed agreed between the parties and shall not modify or supersede these General Terms and Conditions.
The Participant shall register to a Training Course by filling in the Registration Form that is provided manually by GIZ, or that is available online for each individual training at http://training.thai-german-cooperation.info/ The manual form needs to be sent to GIZ via email. The online form will be automatically forwarded to GIZ. Any such registration received by GIZ shall be binding upon the Participant.
The Course Fee as indicated in the manual or online registration form includes attendance of the Training Course and all Training Course handouts.
The Course Fee does not include accommodation, meals, travel or any other expenses that may be incurred by the Participant (unless explicitly set out in the Training Course description). The Course Fee does not include any other facility or equipment that needs to be provided by the Participant in the Training Course description (e.g. “Participants are required to provide a laptop for the lab elements of the Training Course”).
The Course Fee is due for payment 21 days of the invoice date but, at the latest, 14 days prior to the scheduled first day of Training. If the Participant registers less than 14 days prior to the scheduled first day of Training, the Course Fee shall be due promptly upon registration.
Prices quoted do not include VAT or other applicable taxes which will be added at the current rate and shall be borne by the Participant. Regardless of the Participant’s country of origin, the location of the Training Course shall be considered the place of performance for tax purposes.
Qualification of Participant
Any individual must be 20 years or older to register for a training.
The Participant should meet the qualification and other requirements as set out in the Training Course description in order to achieve the best training results. GIZ is not responsible for insufficient training results resulting from neglecting the requirements, but reserves the right to deny registration to Participants that do not meet the requirements.
A qualified substitute may be enrolled in a Participant’s place with the prior written consent of GIZ which consent will not be unreasonably withheld if the Substitute meets the qualification and other requirements as set out above (“Qualification of Participant”).
However, two or more Participants may not share a seat of a Training Course. In the event of substitution, the Participant remains liable towards GIZ for payment of the Course Fee.
Cancellation and Non-Attendance by the Participant
The Participant may cancel participation in the Training Course at any time by written notice to GIZ. In case a qualified substitute can be enrolled prior to the first day of training in accordance with “Substitution” above, no cancellation fee will be charged.
In case of cancellation or non-attendance without cancellation, or if a qualified substitute cannot be enrolled, GIZ is entitled to charge the Participant with the following Cancellation Fees:
Receipt of Cancellation Notice by GIZ
30 or more calendar days prior to 1st day of training
0 % of the Course Fee
0-29 calendar days prior to 1st day of training
100 % of the Course Fee
100 % of the Course Fee
GIZ is entitled to offset the Cancellation Fee against any Course Fee already paid by the Participant.
The Participant is liable for any other costs incurred in connection with the cancellation or non-attendance, e.g. in connection with travel or accommodation.
Cancellation, Relocation and other Alterations by GIZ
If GIZ has to significantly alter the location of a Training Course (change of city or country), or has to replace the trainer by a similarly qualified trainer, GIZ will notify the Participant in due course. If the Participant is unable to attend the Training Course at the significantly altered location or does not agree to the proposed new trainer, GIZ will refund 100% of the Training Course Fee.
If GIZ needs to make minor changes such as relocate the training location within the same city or adjust the training schedule, the Participant will not be entitled to refund for such reason.
GIZ reserves the right to cancel any Training Course due to insufficient enrollment up to 30 calendar days in advance of the scheduled first day of Training. Notice by GIZ will be provided with the option to reschedule for a future course date or to receive a full refund of the Training Course Fee.
GIZ is entitled to exclude the Participant of the attendance of any Training Course session or to cancel this contract with immediate effect in the event of continued non-attendance, continued disturbance of a Training sequence or non-authorized copying of Training material by the Participant or if the Participant is in breach of any other material provision of this contract. In such event, the Participant shall not be entitled to a refund of the Course Fee (whether in full or in part).
In no event shall GIZ be liable for travel costs or other costs incurred by the Participant or any other consequential damage caused by the relocation, cancellation or other modification of the Training Course by GIZ in accordance with the provisions above, unless such damage is due to the willful misconduct or gross negligence of GIZ.
