The following terms apply to 1) Enrolment in classes offered by GBM, and 2) Orders for GBM and IBM’s education materials. These terms, along with any applicable license agreement, are the complete agreement between us regarding the courses or education materials we provide and replace any prior oral or written communications between us. Attendance at a class or your use of any education materials constitutes your agreement to these terms and conditions. Occasionally, we have offerings with additional or different terms and conditions. If so, we will provide those terms and conditions to you. For example, conference terms and conditions are outlined in the conference registration section of the conference website or in the conference brochure for the event. Courses and Education Materials We list our generally available courses and education materials in various Catalogues of Education (Catalog) which we publish from time to time. We may add or withdraw courses and education materials at any time without notice. GBM will provide each student with the official student material for each course and issue a course completion certificate to each student who attends at least 80% the total duration of the course. We will specify the dates of public classes. Private classes will be scheduled by mutual agreement. We will require a month’s advance notice before the start of the courses. We may cancel any scheduled class on notice. If we cancel a class for which you have prepaid, we will refund the price you paid. Private (One-Company) Classes For private courses, the classes will be held at customer site unless otherwise specifically stated. The customer will be required to supply the required classroom facilities as well as the hardware, software, multimedia projector, and lunch, tea/coffee. Prices and Payment All prices are valid for 30 days. However, GBM reserves the right to increase prices at any time without prior notification after the validity period. Prices for public classes will be those in effect on the date the class begins. Prices include the use of required education materials and machines. They do not include taxes or student travel and living expenses. Prices for private classes will be established based on your requirements and will cover the course material provided to the students, the instructor fees, and travel/living costs incurred by the instructor. Additional charges may apply, such as additional students beyond the agreed number, facilities, and remote lab support. The charges for the private classes are based on a class size of no more than six (6) students unless otherwise stated in the quotation. Any additional student will be charged at US$ 200 per day per additional student unless otherwise stated in the quotation. The set-up charges will be generally included in the private classroom pricing unless specifically stated separately. You agree to pay amounts due, including applicable taxes and any late payment fees, as we specify in the invoice. Conference cancellation charges will be specified on the conference website or in the conference brochure for the event. Cancellation Charges You will be billed the full price of a class if you do not cancel your enrolment at least seven calendar days prior to the scheduled start date or if you do not show up for the class. If you cancel a private class within seven calendar days prior to the scheduled start date you will be billed the full price of the private class; if you cancel between eight and fifteen calendar days prior to the scheduled start date you will be billed 25% of the full price; and if you cancel between sixteen and twenty-one calendar days prior to the scheduled start date you will be billed 10% of the full price. Cancellation of a private class more than twenty-one calendar days prior to the scheduled start date may be made without charge. Limitation of Liability Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on our part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from us. In each such instance, except for the payments referred to in our patent and copyright terms described above, we are liable only for the charges for the class or education material that is the subject of the claim. This limit also applies to any of our subcontractors. It is the maximum for which we are collectively responsible. Warranty THERE ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES EXCEPT THOSE CONTAINED HEREIN OR IN ANY APPLICABLE LICENSE AGREEMENT. THERE ARE NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY AS TO RESULTS TO BE ATTAINED BY ATTENDING OUR CLASSES OR USING OUR EDUCATION MATERIALS. Changes to this Agreement We may modify these terms and conditions on written notice. The modified terms and conditions will apply to your enrolment or order unless you cancel such enrolment or order prior to the effective date. Otherwise, for a change to be valid, both of us must sign it. Additional or different terms and conditions in any order or communication from you are void. General You agree not to copy our copyrighted material without our prior written consent. You agree not to use recording equipment in our classes without our prior written consent. You agree not to use our trademarks, trade names, or other designations in any promotion or publication without our prior written consent. You agree not to assign, or otherwise transfer your rights under this Agreement without our prior written consent. Any attempt to do so is void. Neither of us is responsible for failure to fulfil any obligations due to causes beyond its control. Neither of us will bring a legal action (under this Agreement) more than two years after the cause of action arose. Any terms of this Agreement, which by their nature extend beyond its termination, remain in effect until fulfilled, and apply to respective successors and assignees. The laws of the country in which the courses are being held will govern this Agreement.
