2. Scope

Unless otherwise agreed by IAS in writing prior to agreement by the Client to these Terms and Conditions the Client agrees that the provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall constitute all provisions relating to the Services to be provided to the Client by IAS. No other terms and conditions shall be accepted.


3. Prices

The price payable for the Services shall be the list price of IAS at the Confirmation Date unless otherwise stated.

IAS reserves the right to increase the price from that advertised on the website or in other forms at our discretion and for any reason prior to the course commencement. Where this affects the price payable by the customer and the customer has made payment of the previous advertised price (not including Purchase Orders and Reservations) and does not wish to proceed at the increased price a full refund will be payable.

The price does not include travel, accommodation, meals or other related expenses unless explicitly stated. 

All prices are exclusive of Value Added Tax, and this will be charged at the appropriate rate.

4. Travelling, Accommodation & Subsistence
Unless otherwise agreed in writing expenses will be charged in accordance with this section. Travelling will be charged for at the current agreed HM Revenue & Customs mileage rate. Where training is to be provided for a period in excess of one working day then the client will be responsible for providing the training provider with acceptable accommodation. Where a training course or seminar is to start or finish at such a time that it would be unreasonable for the training provider to travel to or from the training venue then acceptable accommodation must be provided by the client. This generally means hotel accommodation of 3-star rating or higher. Unless agreed by the training provider, substantial meals and refreshments or subsistence costs will be provided by the client for the period of all training provided.

5. Terms of Payment

Where the Services relate to the provision of a training course, payment by cheque, credit card, debit card or bank transfer is required no later than 25 Working Days before the course start date. Special arrangements may be separately agreed in the case of late bookings.

Where Services involve other services or goods, payment is required 5 Working Days prior to delivery or as otherwise agreed in writing.

IAS is entitled to charge interest at 2% per Month or part thereof on overdue payments.

Where pre-agreed by IAS, payment may be agreed by Purchase Order (from a company based within the UK only). Where payment by Purchase Order is agreed these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and no variation to these Terms and Conditions is accepted by IAS whether detailed by the Customer within the Purchase Order or by another means without specific acceptance by IAS in writing.  

Where an agreement has not been provided in writing any additions or variations to these Terms and Conditions shall be null and void.


6. Training Courses

IAS directly provides training and at times in conjunction with other selected Training Providers.  To the best knowledge of IAS, these Training Providers are suitably qualified, and accredited to deliver the training courses offered. 

The contents of course schedules are intended for general guidance only and do not form any part of a contract. IAS reserves the right to make any reasonable variations to public and in-house courses, including the content and location of the courses, without notice.

The indication of course availability and location shown on the IAS website is for general guidance and does not form any part of a contract.  Please contact IAS before making any travel or accommodation arrangements as IAS will not be liable for any action that you may take in reliance on the information.
 
It is the responsibility of the Client to ensure that the delegates meet the prerequisites of the course on which they are booked, and that the course content meets their requirements.
 
Infinity will perform the Services with reasonable skill and care. Any other conditions or warranties whether express or implied as to the quality of the Services are hereby expressly excluded.

Unless otherwise indicated, all courses are delivered solely in English, and all delegates must be sufficiently proficient in English language before attending a course.

For courses not exclusive to one Client, Infinity and its Training Providers reserve the right to refuse admission to the training premises by any person whom they consider in their absolute discretion to be unsuitable for admission onto the training premises or to remove any such person after the commencement of a course.

7. Course Duration

Course durations for classroom events and workshops are clearly stated on the website.

All classroom-based courses are run on working days only, unless otherwise stated. On the rare occasion where a training event duration spans a weekend the course will continue the following week. For example, if a 3-day training event commences on a Friday, then the remaining 2 days of training will take place on the following Monday and Tuesday.

8. Cancellation, Transfers and Substitutions with respect to Training Courses

IAS reserves the right to cancel or arrange an alternative date for a course.  In such circumstances, IAS will endeavour to provide notice of cancellation or change to the Client. In the event of cancellation, the Client will be entitled to a full refund of the course fee, but IAS shall not be liable for any other loss or expense arising.

The Client may cancel the training course booking by notifying IAS in writing by acknowledged email or by recorded delivery as soon as reasonably practicable.  The Client shall also be deemed to have cancelled the course booking if the delegate does not attend the event.  The Client shall be liable to pay a cancellation fee as follows:
 
Customer Scheduled Training Courses and Events (for example on Client’s site):

Number of Days’ NoticeProportion of Course Fee Payable
0 – 15 Working Days100%
16 – 25 Working Day50%


Customer Specific EDASS Additional Service 

Number of Days’ NoticeProportion of Course Fee Payable
0 – 30 Days10%


In the event that the delegate is unable to attend the course booked, IAS will endeavour to transfer the delegate to an alternative course.  If this is requested 26 or more Working Days from the start date of the original course, then the only charges applicable will be an administration fee of £50 (plus VAT) plus any difference in the course price.  If a transfer is requested within 26 Working Days, then the cancellation fee above shall be payable.

IAS will endeavour to accommodate requests by the Client to substitute one delegate for another but is under no obligation to do so.  Such requests are subject to the replacement delegate meeting the pre-requisites for the course.  In the event of a substitution, the Client shall pay an administration fee of £50 plus any unavoidable costs relating to the change.

For the avoidance of doubt, Public Events are included as a scheduled training course and upon course materials and access to Learning materials being provided to the Client 100% of the Course Fee is payable in the event of any cancellation.

9. Credit Rating
IAS reserves the right to assess the financial status of any organisation or individual making a booking or in the process of making a booking and reserves the right to require payment prior to confirming a booking.   

10. Liability

IAS’ total liability for any loss or damage shall not exceed the price payable for the Services, except in cases of direct physical damage to the Client’s property, personal injury or death.

IAS shall not be liable howsoever caused for indirect or consequential loss including but not limited to; loss of profits; loss of revenue; loss of goodwill; loss of data; failure to achieve savings.

11. Additional Services – EDASS (Employee Drug & Alcohol Support Service) 

• Where a client orders a predefined selection of additional services at a fixed price, the provisions of this Clause 11 shall apply except as may be expressly waived (in writing) by IAS in relation to a particular order. 

• Additional Services are allocated to a particular named client, and such allocation cannot be transferred to any other client.

• The client may not modify the agreed additional services and may not exchange services with or for other services/courses. 

• If the client wishes to cancel an additional EDASS service that is subject to an annual contract, the client must give 30 days’ notice prior to the end of the contract end date. If the client gives notice within the final 30-day period the client shall be liable to incur a cancellation fee of 10% of the total service cost. 

• Where a customer decides to cancel an additional service prior to 25 working days before the additional service has commenced, IAS will refund the cost subject to an administration charge equivalent to 10% of the additional Service price paid. 

• Each EDASS additional service is valid for a maximum of twelve (12) months. The Client may only use the additional services during the twelve (12) month period immediately following the date they are ordered, and payment is received in full by IAS. Any services that remain unused will expire on the anniversary of the payment date and shall be deemed used with no refund payable. 

• Some additional services are provided on the basis of being for selected dates and locations only. An IAS consultant advisor will work with you to arrange a suitable schedule. 

• IAS reserves the right to cancel, curtail or re-schedule additional services, training courses or events, in which case it shall use reasonable endeavours to notify the customer and provide alternatives.  

• In the event of cancellation by IAS for any reason (including where IAS is no longer able to source the training course requested), IAS shall use reasonable endeavours to find a suitable alternative and where this is not possible shall refund course fees which the customer has already paid in advance in relation to the cancelled course. Please note the refund will be a pro-rated amount of the sum paid for the Bundle which may be less than the usual price of the additional service. 

• IAS reserves the right to withhold services or provide reduced services if course participants attending on the Client’s behalf fail to satisfy course requirements or meet the course prerequisites.


12. Force Majeure

IAS shall not be in breach of this contract if there is any total or partial failure of performance by it of its duties and obligations under this contract occasioned by any act of God, fire, act of government or state, war, civil commotion, insurrection, embargo, prevention from or hindrance from obtaining any raw materials or energy, sickness or other cause beyond its reasonable control.

If IAS is unable to perform its duties and obligations under this contract as a direct result of one or more such causes IAS shall give written notice to the Client of such inability stating the cause in question. 

13. Health & Safety

IAS will take reasonable steps in relation to the health and safety of the training provider and/or delegates; however, the responsibility for health and safety issues remains with the client throughout when delivered on-site at the clients premises.

14. Data Protection and Confidentiality

The policy of IAS with respect to data protection is detailed in these Terms and Conditions and it’s Privacy Policy which should be read in conjunction with these terms and conditions of the contract.

Where Services are certified training courses, the Client consents to allow IAS full access to examination results arising from their bookings.  This information will be used in accordance with the requirements of relevant data protection legislation.  The data will only be used to evaluate the effectiveness of training and to assist IAS in providing advice to its clients.

All Intellectual Property associated with training courses or other Services shall remain vested in the owner be it IAS, its Training Provider or others.

Where Services are distance learning products, then the Client shall abide by all reasonable terms of any licence agreement applicable.

Intellectual Property, which is identified as, or can reasonably be deemed to be, confidential shall not be copied or reproduced or disclosed to any third party without the prior written consent of IAS. 

The Client shall ensure that its employees and all those under the Client’s control and supervision comply with this obligation.

Where Services are provided to the specification or special requirements of the Client, the Client shall indemnify IAS against all costs, claims and damages incurred or arising out of any alleged infringements of Intellectual Property. 

15. Equipment & Belongings
The training provider will not accept liability for loss or damage to any equipment or other belongings, however caused. Delegates are responsible for the safekeeping and appropriate use of items loaned to them. Damage or loss of such items will be charged to the client.

16. Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing procedures to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

We are committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains. Our commitment is to act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners and we expect our suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
