In-Person Seminars, Blended Learning Sessions, Live Webinars and Digital Courses

 

These terms and conditions relate to any of Nexion's Training courses and events taking place on or after 1 January 2017.

This document (together with the documents referred to on it) tells you ("you" means the party contracting with Nexion for Courses) the terms and conditions on which we (“we”, “us” or “Nexion” means Nexion Consulting Sàrl) supply In-Person Seminars, Blended Learning Sessions, Live Webinars and Digital Courses as well as other training courses and events (“Courses”). Please read these terms and conditions carefully before registering for or booking any Courses on our Website. You should understand that by registering or booking any Courses, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.

1. Booking Courses

Registrations or bookings for Courses can be made via our “Website” (means www.nexion.consulting) or by contacting our Training & Events Team on +41 (0) 21 691 05 91 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. For online registrations or bookings, please select the Course that you require and click on the “Register (Individual)” or“Register (Group)” button, following the instructions step by step.

2. Description and pricing of Courses

Although we make every effort to ensure the prices listed are correct, mistakes may sometimes be made. If a mistake is discovered in the price of the Course that you have booked prior to confirmation of your booking, we will tell you and give you the option of either reconfirming your booking at the correct price or cancelling your booking. In this instance, if we are unable to contact you or we receive no reply from you, your booking will be cancelled. Nexion reserves the right to change prices listed without notice. Nexion also reserves the right to refuse to supply to any individual or company.

3. Provisional registrations or bookings

When you register or book a Course online, acknowledgement of the registration or booking request is emailed within 1 working day of the request being received by Nexion. Where a booking made online, by email or over the telephone is not accompanied by full payment or a formal purchase order (sent either by post or by email), the registration or booking will be deemed to be provisional (“Provisional Booking”). Provisional Bookings will only be held until 2 (two) weeks prior to commencement of the Course, after this any Provisional Bookings will be cancelled. When payment has been received in full, or a formal purchase order has been provided (either by email or by post), the individuals’ place on the Course will then be confirmed and a binding contract will have been entered into between Nexion and the booking party. Please refer further to the “How to pay” section (section 6) below.

4. Third party registrations or bookings

We accept bookings from third party person or companies acting on a delegate’s or organisation’s behalf, however the registration or booking information supplied must relate directly to the delegate(s) in question and include the following:

• Delegate name
• Direct email address – this can be a work or personal email address

Registrations or Bookings cannot be processed without this information being provided in full. This is to enable us to contact the delegate(s) directly when necessary (such as to provide joining instructions or attendance certificates) and also to provide appropriate health & safety and security measures at course venues.

5. Cancellation of Courses

Nexion reserves the right to amend or cancel any Course, Course times, dates or published prices. Changes to Course prices, times and dates will be advised before the Course start date and any Course already paid in full will not be subject to the increased price. As a Course may be cancelled at any time up to four weeks prior to its start, we recommend that delegates do not make travel or accommodation arrangements before this time. Any travel, accommodation or subsistence costs incurred (including incidental costs such as car parking) are entirely the responsibility of the delegate or the delegate’s organisation. Nexion does not accept any liability for reimbursement of any costs incurred whatsoever in relation to its training Courses or events. Where a Course has been cancelled, delegates will be offered an alternative date for the same Course or a refund.

6. How to Pay

If you registering or are making a booking online, you can pay by credit or debit card or by purchase order. PayPal handles our online credit and debit card transactions in a secure environment. We accept American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Maestro. If paying by purchase order, the invoice will need to be addressed to the registrant or booker or delegate’s employer. Payment must be made within 30 days from the date of the invoice or if the booking is made less than 30 days before the Course date, payment is required before the Course start.
