Terms & Conditions
Last updated: 26 August 2020
1. Application of these terms
The Site is owned by Two Rivers Software Training to deliver software training services (the "Service"), and to offer or provide certain related products and services.
4. Booking & Payment For Onsite Training
Your payment options will be clearly presented to you before you book.
For group bookings, payment is requested within 7 days of the invoice date. If this is not possible due to the timing of your company payroll schedules, we ask that your accounts department send us a short email stating that the invoice is in the system ready to be processed.
For 1-on-1 bookings, a payment is required immediately to secure your booking. The payment amount will differ depending on the type of training booked.
Payment methods are clearly listed on the invoice that will be emailed to you. They include EFT (a.k.a. bank transfer), credit card, Paypal and SWIFT. Cheques are not accepted.
EFT has no charges. The other three payment types incur additional fees, as shown on the invoice.
A booking summary will be emailed to you. Your booking will be pencilled in for 24 hours and should be considered as provisional.
As soon as payment is received (or you notify us that payment has been made), the booking will be "locked in". If payment is not received within 24 hours, your provisional booking date(s) will be released and made publicly available again, requiring you to re-book your training if you still decide to proceed.
A text message will be sent the day before to remind you about your training.
5. Cancellation, Postponement & No Shows
If you cancel or postpone your training within 5 days of your scheduled date without a valid reason, the full course fee is final and non-refundable.
If you cancel or postpone your training and provide notice at least 5 days notice without a valid reason, a fee of $125 will be retained by us for each training day and the difference refunded to you.
Valid reasons include:
Invalid reasons include
If you are not at the agreed location at the agreed time (called a "no-show") your entire course fee or deposit is forfeited.
6. Consulting Services
We will take every measure to understand your situation before committing to help you. We will provide you with a per-hour or per-job quote depending on the size and complexity of the assignment.
If we complete the consulting assignment to your satisfaction, we will invoice you for the agreed amount.
For assignments where payment is made on completion, if we are unable to complete your consulting assignment within the agreed time frame for any reason, there will be no charge.
Where sensitive or confidential data is involved, we ask that where possible you remove this prior to the commencement of the consulting assignment. We will take all appropriate measures to respect your confidentiality and the confidentially of your data and act in a professional manner at all times. On completion of the assignment, we will remove all sensitive data from our computers.
7. Registration, Memberships & Online Subscriptions
You agree to keep your user name and password ("Login") confidential at all times, to take reasonable steps to prevent others from obtaining your Login, and to log off from your account at the end of each session.
You also agree to inform Two Rivers Software Training immediately if at any point you consider that your Login has been compromised and/or is being misused, and to take such action as is required and/or is requested by Two Rivers Software Training to prevent such compromise or misuse.
Two Rivers Software Training reserves the right to disable any Login, whether chosen by you or allocated by Two Rivers Software Training, at any time, if in Two Rivers Software Training's opinion you have failed to comply with these terms.
You are responsible for all fees relating to activities conducted using your Login prior to the time that you notify Two Rivers Software Training of any unauthorised use of your Login. Two Rivers Software Training shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these provisions.
8. Payment & Delivery of Online Products
Online payments for one-off purchases must be paid for in full using our secure third party payment processor. You will then redirected to a page or sent an email where you can download the product you have purchased or be given login information where you have purchased membership for a product.
All products are produced and delivered in-house. We do not use affiliate or third party distribution sites.
9. Refunds For Cancellation of Online Products During Trial Period
We often offer conditional risk-free guarantees with our online offerings. Where a risk-free period has been given and you meet the refund criteria as stated in the initial offer for the product, you may send an email to info(at)trst.com.au. After we have verified your eligibility for a refund, we will issue the refund within 24 hours of verification.
10. Termination of Online Services
You may terminate a Subscription at any time by sending an email to info(at)trst.com.au. Cancellation must be made at least 72 hours prior to your renewal date in order to ensure the automated re-billing process is stopped for the renewal term. Any cancellation that is made after such date will cancel the automated re-billing process for future renewal terms, but will not cancel the automated re-billing process for the pending renewal term. You will be responsible for paying membership fees for any renewal term that is not cancelled in accordance with this policy at least 72 hours prior to the renewal date. A request for termination under this clause does not give rise to any refund for any unused amounts of membership fees paid.
Upon expiration, or cancellation or termination by either party, of your Subscription, your Login, and/or your use of the Site or the Service, your right to use the Site and the Service shall immediately cease. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Site or the Service.
11. Credit Card Chargeback Policy
Our third party payment processor takes certain measures to combat fraud, including fraudulent charge reversal requests (chargebacks).
A "chargeback" occurs when a credit card holder disputes a credit card charge with a credit card processor, bank or similar institution. A fraudulent chargeback occurs when the holder attempts to dispute or reverse a charge for services that they have actually purchased.
In the event of any claim that your credit card has been used without your permission or any other fraudulent use of your credit card, Two Rivers Software Training will assist the bank and police authorities with any investigations including providing them with all the details used to register associated profiles, card authentication and any communications through or related to the Site either with Two Rivers Software Training or other members.
Attempting to dispute or reverse a valid credit card charge is fraudulent and illegal. Any such fraudulent chargebacks may result in legal action toward you, which can lead to prosecution, fines and impairment of your credit rating.
12. Proprietary Rights
