The following Booking Terms and Conditions apply to all delegates who book in Programs sold by Improve International Australia.
These payment terms and conditions (“Terms”) apply to all our modular veterinary professional training programs (“Modulars”) and weekend training courses (“Fast-Tracks”). Details of our Modular and Fast-Track programs (together called “Program/s”), including their requirements, dates and fees, are described on our website at www.improveinternational.com.au. Veterinary professionals are veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurse & veterinary technicians.
By completing a booking form for a Program and clicking on the button to proceed, you are requesting to participate in that Program (as described fully on our website) and are agreeing to these Terms (“Booking”). No other payment terms or conditions apply unless we agree in writing.
You confirm that the information you provide in the Booking form is complete and accurate. You also confirm that you meet the requirements of participating in the Program and you will provide documentary evidence of the information you provided and your qualifications, if requested.
Subject to these Terms, we agree to provide each Booked Program and you agree to pay us the fee for each Booked Program.
We may add, remove or change any detail of any Program. Significant details of a Program are the Program’s overall content, its fee, it’s date and locations. If we change a significant detail and you have a Booking for that Program, we will email you. If we increase a fee for a Program, after you have Booked that Program, you will only have to pay the original fee.
If we change a significant Program detail, you may reply to our notification email within 7 days to cancel your Program Booking. We will be deemed to have cancelled your booking for that Program and Clause 13 will apply. If you reply after 7 days, clauses 10 to 12 will apply. You agree that we will not owe you any compensation for changing any Program detail.
We may offer you more than one option to pay the fee for a Program. You agree to pay the fee according to the option you select in the Booking form. Regardless of payment option, by making a Booking, you agree to pay the full Program fee for that Program by the date agreed in the Booking form or payment schedule (if a written agreement is in place). All Program fees are inclusive of GST.
If you have not made a payment according to the fee payment option you selected, we may suspend your access to the Program and any of its materials and our resources until you have paid the unpaid monies. If your payment is more than 28 days overdue, we may email you to cancel your Booking, in which case you will forfeit any deposit/monies paid and you agree to pay us the balance of the fee for that Program.
We may charge interest on any unpaid monies at the rate of 10% per annum from the due date of payment to the date you pay the overdue monies.
At any time, you may cancel your Booking by emailing our Director of Operations at firstname.lastname@example.org and advising in writing you wish to cancel your booking.
