PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE REDR WEBSITE
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions of these Terms & Conditions at any time. You should check these Terms & Conditions periodically for changes. By using this website after we post any changes to these Terms & Conditions, you agree to accept those changes, whether or not you have reviewed them. If you do not agree to these Terms & Conditions, you should not use this website and, if applicable, you should cancel your registration with us.
The use of this website is subject to important disclaimers, limitations of liability and indemnities.
By registering for a Service, you agree as follows:
a. To pay, using a valid credit card (or other form of payment which we may accept from time to time), the fees set out on this website, applicable taxes, and other charges, surcharges, costs and fees incurred in order to access or purchase our Services (“Fees”).
With regard to Fees we:
i. reserve the right to increase the Fees, or to introduce new Fees at any time, upon reasonable advance notice communicated to you through a posting on this Website or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including electronic mail or conventional mail).
ii. will automatically charge your credit card or other account up to two weeks prior to commencement of a course unless you terminate or cancel your registration in writing two weeks before commencement of the course.
Each time you use or apply for our Services, you reaffirm your agreement that we may charge your credit card (or other form of payment, if applicable).
b. All Fees are quoted in Australian dollars and are inclusive of any applicable GST, except where otherwise stated.
c. In addition to the Fees, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with connecting to this website, including without limitation all telephone access lines (including long-distance charges, when applicable), internet service provider fees, telephone and computer equipment, and any other fees and charges necessary to access our Services.
d. For the purposes of your use and purchase of our Services, including identification and billing, you agree to provide us with true, accurate, current and complete information as required by the Application form for our Services including your complete legal name, address, telephone number, email address and applicable billing information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date) as required (Application Data).
You agree to allow us to share your Application Data with third parties for the purpose of verifying the information you provide and billing your credit card or otherwise charging your account. RedR Australia utilises a third party agency to manage and keep private credit card transaction data. You agree to maintain and promptly update the Application Data to keep it accurate at all times.
NB: RedR Australia’s preferred payment method is via credit card. However, in some circumstances, invoicing may be arranged for payment of the course fee balance. Please ensure your name is included in the title of your bank transfer and the title and month of the course you are undertaking if possible. Please note that international applicants must pay their deposit and balance via credit card only. To accept donations we use eWAY. For any enquiries regarding your payment please contact RedR directly.
Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, if you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that this is the case, we reserve the right to refuse any and all current or future use by you of any of our Fee-based Services.
e. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information. You must notify us immediately in the event of any known or suspected unauthorised use of your account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorised disclosure of your credit card information. In the event of a breach of security by you, you will remain liable for any unauthorised use of your Application Data. If your credit card expires, is cancelled, is lost or is subject to use without your authorisation, you will immediately update your Application Data.
f. In the event of your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, health and/or other similar criteria, or if we otherwise properly refuse your Application to one of our Fee-based Services or if you cancel your registration to one of our Fee-based Services, we agree that the Registration Fee paid in advance by you (or portion thereof) is refundable.
g. Substitutions are welcome at any time.
h. A non-refundable deposit of $400 (Australian) is payable at the time of enrolment to secure your place on a course. This payment must be made via credit card through our secure payment facility.
Payment of the fee balance may be incremental or made as one final payment, and must be paid in full at least 14 calendar days prior to the advertised course commencement date.
i. RedR Australia reserves the right to cancel an applicant’s place in a course if the fee balance is not received 14 calendar days prior to the course commencement date.
If cancellation of a reserved course booking is received by RedR less than 14 calendar days preceding the advertised course commencement date, 50% of the total course fee will be non-refundable. Special circumstances may apply and must be verifiable with medical and other certificates to justify a late cancellation and full reimbursement (less deposit).
RedR will allow a participant to defer their participation to a subsequent course without penalty once ONLY if that notice is received 14 calendar days preceding the advertised start date of the course originally enrolled in. Course enrolment may be transferable to another person, without penalty, and you should contact email@example.com to discuss options.
j. If cancellation from a course occurs following course commencement, then 100% of the course fee is non-refundable. Consideration will be given to special circumstances and any such request must be made in writing within 7 days of course withdrawal.
k. If a refund is agreed upon by RedR Australia, the withdrawal is to be confirmed in writing before the refund will be paid.
l. RedR Australia reserves the right to change the commencement date or to cancel a training course for any reason with a minimum of two (2) clear weeks’ notice for any long training courses. If it’s a short course, RedR reserves the right to cancel within 72hrs of the workshop commencement.
m. Applicants will be given a full refund of fees where a change of date occurs. However, applicants may elect to transfer their registration without additional cost where a training course is rescheduled and the new dates are convenient.
n. A tax invoice will be provided, as soon as practicable following receipt of the registration.
The availability and use of our Fee-based Services may be limited based on demographic, geographic, health or other criteria as we may establish from time to time. You understand and agree we may disallow you from registering to our Fee-based Services at any time based on these criteria.
