Booking confirmation

Once we have processed your booking, we will send you a confirmation email with an invoice. Your place is guaranteed once payment has been received.

Scheduling classes

We will specify the dates of public classes. Private or on-site classes will be scheduled by mutual agreement. We may cancel any scheduled class on notice. If we cancel a class for which you have prepaid, we will refund the price you paid to us.

Prices

Prices for public classes will be those in effect on the date the class begins. Prices include the use of required education materials, lunch and refreshments. Prices do not include use of machines required in the classes. Vaadin reserves the right to change prices at any time without prior notification.

Prices for private or on-site classes will be established based on your requirements. Additional charges may apply, such as instructor travel and living expenses, facilities, and remote lab support. You agree to pay amounts due, including applicable taxes and any late payment fees, as we specify in the invoice.

Value added tax and sales tax shall be added to the prices in accordance with the then current regulations.

Enrollment

Enrollments can be accepted at any time up to the course start date, subject to availability.

Terms of payment

Invoices payment terms for public classes are thirty (30) days from date of invoice or at least three (3) days before the start of the course, whichever is sooner. If the enrollment is done later that three (3) days before the start of the course, an immediate full payment is required.

Invoices payment terms for private or on-site classes are thirty (30) days from date of invoice.

Any overdue amounts shall be subject to a finance charge at the rate of 1.5% per month commencing on the date such amount becomes overdue, or the highest rate permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower.

Cancellation charges and transfers

You will be charged the full price of a public class if you do not cancel or reschedule your enrollment at least fourteen (14) calendar days prior to the scheduled start date or if you do not show up for the class. However, you may cancel your class enrollment at any time within the three days following your initial or any rescheduled enrollment date without charge as long as it is done at least 3 days prior to the scheduled start date of the class. You may also transfer your class enrollment to another class at least seven (7) days prior to the scheduled start date without additional charge, and you may transfer your class enrollment to another person at any time without charge.

If you cancel a private or on-site class within seven (7) calendar days prior to the scheduled start date you will be billed the full price of the class; if you cancel between eight (8) and fifteen (15) calendar days prior to the scheduled start date you will be billed 25% of the full price. Cancellation of a private or on-site class more than fifteen (15) calendar days prior to the scheduled start date may be made without charge.

Limitation of liability

Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on our part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from us. In each such instance, we are liable only for the charges for the class that is the subject of the claim. This limit also applies to any of our subcontractors. It is the maximum for which we are collectively responsible.

Items for which we are not liable

Under no circumstances are we or our subcontractors liable for any of the following:

  1. third-party claims against you for losses or damages
  2. loss of, or damage to, your records or data; or
  3. special, incidental, or indirect damages or for any economic consequential damages (including lost profits or savings), even if we are informed of their possibility.
