General terms and conditions Davotes
Davotes assumes that you know these conditions if you enter into a collaboration with Davotes or register for an education, course, or workshop.
These General Terms and Conditions apply to all agreements between 'Davotes' and 'Participant'. The participant is defined as any individual or legal person who actually participates in training, courses and other forms of education and training.
The agreement is concluded when the Participant has registered. Enrolment for a course, workshop or training takes place through the registration form via the Davotes website. The registration is final when the Participant has received a digital confirmation of receipt from Davotes. Only when you enrol in the year course, you will be asked for a deposit of € 300, to guarantee your participation. Registrations will be processed in the order of entry. An interview and / or letter of motivation can be requested at registration. Davotes has the right to refuse registrations without giving any reason. The Participant has the right to terminate the agreement without giving any reason within 14 working days after the conclusion of the agreement.
Cancellation must be sent digitally by the Participant to Davotes. The date of receipt is the date of cancellation. In case of cancellation after the invoice has been sent to the Participant, Davotes is obliged to charge € 25 of administration costs. In case of cancellation by the Participant from September 8, 2022 up to 30 calendar days before the start of the training, workshop or course with Heather Plett, 30% of the total amount will be charged. Up to 7 days before the start of the training, workshop or course 75% will be charged and in case of cancellation 7 days or less before the start date the Participant is charged 100% of the total amount. If the Participant does not appear at the course, workshop or training and has not cancelled the participation, the entire amount will be charged. In case of payment by a third party, the Participant remains responsible for paying the full amount. If the Participant themselves can find replacement that meets the conditions, only the administration costs will be charged. If the Participant is absent for one or more days, no refund will be given.
If the reason for absence is due to compelling private circumstances, it can be checked in consultation with Davotes whether there will be an opportunity to catch up on the missed day in a subsequent course, training or workshop. Advance the course or catch up with an other course is after the subsequent course no longer possible. Refund is no longer possible after the start of the training, course or workshop.
A course can only be taken as a whole. A missed course can be overtaken in the subsequent course after consultation, provided when there is a place free. Interrupting and continuing a training in the subsequent training group is only possible after consultation.
If the participant is allowed to interrupt a training program and wants to complete the training program in a subsequent group, the full costs for one study program will be charged first, plus 20% extra.
Payment must be made within the payment term (indicated on the invoice) and before the start of the training, course or workshop by bank transfer. This also forms the guarantee for participation. Paying too late can ensure that the place of the Participant is passed on to someone else from the waiting list, but does not release the Participant from the payment obligation. An exception to the payment term can occur if there is a payment arrangement (spread payment is possible in consultation). Coffee, tea, course material and lunch are included in the training, course or workshop.
Cancel and changes by Davotes
All workshops, courses or training courses are held subject to sufficient registrations. Davotes reserves the right to cancel a course or to postpone it to a later date in case of insufficient participation, force majeure or other compelling reasons. Davotes also reserves the right to adjust the course times, teacher (with the same expertise and knowledge), curriculum and / or location in unforeseen circumstances. The student will receive a message about this as soon as possible before the start of the course.
!! In the event of cancellation after September 8, 2022 by Davotes due to no possibility for Heather Plett to travel and join the workshop in person, approximately two-third of the paid amount will be refunded. In this exceptional situation Davotes will provid an alternative workshop. Davotes can not make any exceptions in the refund policy after September 8, 2022.
Davotes does not accept any responsibility for any damage resulting from this cancellation. Davotes may unilaterally change these terms and conditions if necessary. Davotes must publish these changes on the website immediately.
Starting and concluding a course
There are no prior education requirements for the workshops and courses. Participation on the year-education can only take place if the Participant has taken the basic course at Davotes.
Participation in the workshop, course or training is concluded with a certificate after full participation. Upon completion of the study program, an overall assessment is made of whether the Participant gives a good expression of the content and level of the program. If the Participant has attended less than 80%, it will be checked whether compensatory agreements can be made. Davotes will always act according to the ability to certify the Participant. Davotes reserves the right to terminate participation of the Participant if there are good reasons for doing so.
