Termination by Alfasoft
- Alfasoft is entitled to terminate this contract if excess or insufficient registration cannot guarantee proper or economically feasible training or certification. Alfasoft is also entitled to terminate the contract due to the instructor’s illness, technical reasons, or other reasons beyond Alfasoft´s control.
- Alfasoft will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform or delay in the performance of any of Alfasoft´s obligations that is caused by events outside Alfasoft´s reasonable control (Force Majeure Event). A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond Alfasoft’s reasonable control. Alfasoft´s performance is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and Alfasoft will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. Alfasoft will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which Alfasoft´s obligations may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
- Before exercising this right to termination, Alfasoft will make every effort to reschedule training or certification examination with the participant’s consent. In case of rescheduling, the contract will remain in effect and will be amended with the consent of both parties. If the parties cannot agree on the amendment to the contract, the contract will be terminated, and any fees paid by the customer will be reimbursed.
Termination by the customer
- If the participant is unable to attend, the customer might be entitled to designate another representative from his/her company to participate in the training or certification before the training begins. The client will incur no additional costs. The participant must obtain prior written permission from Alfasoft to transfer all rights stipulated in the contract.
- The participant is entitled to terminate the contract via written notice at any time.
- The participant must pay 50% of the agreed costs if he/she terminates the contract on or before the 8th business day before the first day of training or certification date. The participant must pay 100% of the costs if he/she terminates the contract within 7 business days of the first day of training or before the certification examination.
- If the participant wishes to change the training date set in the contract without cancelling the entire contract, Alfasoft must receive written notice at least 8 business days before the first day of training. Alfasoft will make every effort to reschedule training or certification examination with the participant’s consent, but Alfasoft cannot guarantee that rescheduling is possible. The participant will incur no additional costs, and the contract will be amended with the consent of both parties. If Alfasoft receives such notice within 7 business days of the first day of training or the certification exam, the participant must pay Alfasoft 50% of the agreed-upon costs as a processing fee.

Right to training documents and software
- All training documents are intended for the exclusive personal use of the participant.
- The participant recognizes Alfasoft´s, or contractor’s, copyright and, therefore, the exclusive distribution rights and right of use of training documents and software.

- In addition, the participant recognizes all of Alfasoft’s (or contractor’s/partner’s) brand, trademark, name, and patent rights to the software and related documents. The participant may not remove, modify, or render unrecognizable copyright indications or indications of property rights.
- If Alfasoft fails, at any time during the term of this contract, to insist upon the strict performance of any of the participants’ obligations, or if Alfasoft fails to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which Alfasoft are entitled, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve the participant from compliance with such obligations.

- No waiver by Alfasoft of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to the participant in writing.

- If training takes place on Alfasoft premises, Alfasoft will normally provide each participant with a desk with a computer and the necessary documents. If not otherwise stated, participants are responsible for incidental expenses (travel, accommodation, additional meals, etc.).
- If the training is online, the participant is responsible for installing the necessary tools to participate and ensuring that the participant has sufficient user rights on the computer to participate online.
- If training takes place on the participant’s premises, the participant will provide the infrastructure necessary for training especially desks and computers, and is responsible for obtaining Internet connections if required. Alfasoft can normally provide these services, particularly computers with pre-installed training software, on the customer’s premises or at an agreed-upon location. The contract does not include this service, and the participant must reimburse Alfasoft for these costs.
- These terms and any document expressly referred to in these terms represent the entire agreement between Alfasoft and the participant in relation to the purchase of Training Courses, Training Materials and Documentation and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between Alfasoft and the participant, whether oral or in writing.
- We each acknowledge that, in entering into these terms, neither Alfasoft nor the participant has relied on any representation, undertaking or promise given by the other or be implied from anything said or written in negotiations between Alfasoft and the participant prior to entering into these terms, except as expressly stated in these terms and conditions.
