In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, GSA may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with GSA, GSA has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of GSA. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, GSA seeks to protect the integrity of its website and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).
COURSES AND THEIR TERMS
These terms and conditions set out above represent a complete statement of the agreement between the parties and supersede all prior discussions, correspondence and representations. Our brochures and advertisements are for information purposes only and are not intended to form any agreement between GSA and the recipient. These terms and conditions are subject to change without notice, and changes will apply to any enrolment/course order received after the date of the change. These terms and conditions may not be varied except in a written agreement signed by an officer of GSA. GSA’s acceptance of a purchase order containing different terms and conditions does not modify or supersede these terms and conditions. This agreement will be governed by Canada law, without regard to any conflicts of law.
The course tuition fee is due fully or partially 10 days before the start date of the course. In the case of Training Vouchers, the full fee for the Training Voucher purchased is due within twenty (20) days before the start date of the first course attended under that Training Voucher purchase. The course tuition fee includes instruction; course materials; the use of software, computers and other technical hardware as appropriate to the course. All funds are accepted in CAD (or USD for USD accounts).
We welcome the enrolment of a qualified substitute in an enrolee’s place, provided the customer notifies us in writing before the first day of the course. GSA will credit 100% of any prepaid course tuition fees against the course tuition fee of the substitute.
Our flexible transfer/cancellation policy lets our customers enrol early with confidence. We request that our customers inform us as soon as they can if they intend to cancel or transfer their scheduled course attendance. If a customer transfers to another course prior to the start of the course in which originally enrolled, 100% of any prepaid course tuition fees will be applied toward the course tuition fees for the subsequent course.
Training Vouchers (i) are transferable within an organization and can be used to pay for the attendance of any qualified course participant but (ii) cannot be used to attend courses that are in excess of the number of enrolments covered by that Training Voucher purchase or courses that start more than 12 months after the start date of the first course attended under that Training Voucher agreement. (iii) If a customer purchases a Training Voucher and notifies us in writing of the desire to cancel it prior to its expiration, we will refund 100% of the difference between the price paid for the Training Voucher and the sum of the standard full tuition for each of the courses the customer took using that Training Voucher. GSA reserves the right to exclude particular courses from the Training Voucher program.
The customer agrees that all course participants will abide by security measures in effect at the course location.
At times, we must change a course location, course date, or postpone a course. We will try to give the customer as much advance notice as possible of any such change. If the customer is unable to attend a course at the revised location or date, we will credit 100% of any prepaid course tuition fees paid against a future course or, if requested, refund those fees. However, we will not be liable for any other costs incurred, including (for example) travel charges or any consequential damages even if we were advised of them. Changes in course locations, course dates or postponement of courses will not extend a Training Voucher expiration date.
All copyrights, patents, designs and other intellectual property rights in or relating to any course materials provided or made available in connection with our courses remain the sole property of GSA. No part of any course materials may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise, or translated into any language, without the prior written permission of GSA.
