Terms & Conditions
These Terms and Conditions form an integral part of the agreement, with the exclusion of the customer's own conditions. The customer acknowledges to have read these terms and conditions and to approve them in full and without reservation.
INVOICES AND PAYMENT
All invoices of Expert Academy, Premium Coaching and Topspreker (Advitas bvba) are payable on the due date specified on the invoice, unless otherwise agreed.
Immediately upon registration, a digital invoice shall be sent to you. Payment for Open Training sessions is due before the initial start of the training session.
In-Company Training sessions, personal coaching sessions and Topspreker assignments (keynote speeches and event hosting):
Upon agreement on the date/dates, you will receive two invoices:
- ADVANCE INVOICE: 50% upon confirmation of the agreement, payable as an advance before the initial start of the first session.
- FINAL INVOICE: 50% payable immediately after the end of the last training session.
In a number of exceptional cases or for long-term agreements the payment of the advance invoice is negotiable.
In case of failure to promptly pay an invoice, an interest of 2% a month from the invoice date shall be applicable. Any dispute of an invoice must be made to the accounting department of Expert Academy in writing (e-mail with confirmation of receipt, registered letter or fax with acknowledgment of receipt), within a period of eight calendar days upon receipt of the invoice.
To cancel your registration or reschedule your training session, the following procedures must be observed:
- Cancellation must be confirmed in writing (by e-mail, letter, or fax):
- Cancellation or rescheduling of training dates more than 30 calendar days before the initial start of the training, no fee.
- Cancellation or rescheduling of training dates between 29 and 14 calendar days before the start of the programme: 50% of the participation fee shall be payable.
- Cancellation less than 14 calendar days before the start of the course, the full participation fee is payable.
Open Training sessions:
For an Open Training session a colleague can always take your place. In that case, the participant does not pay a cancellation fee. Absence and leaving early during the course cannot be compensated.
Expert Academy reserves the right to cancel an Open Training session 7 calendar days prior to the start of the course. Already paid participation rates shall be reimbursed to the participants.
A (spontaneous) strike, traffic problems, illness, weather conditions or other calamities are not valid reasons for a free cancellation or change of date under any circumstance.
However, Expert Academy, Premium Coaching and Topspreker will do everything they can to find an alternative solution: change the location or venue, adapt the content, etc.
