The participation conditions apply to all offers, activities, quotations and agreements for training courses, seminars, workshops and training courses (hereinafter referred to as “courses”) between Tech Data BV (Tech Data Belux) and Clients.
Tech Data reserves the right to make changes to the course material, course content, composition and prices of the course, workshop or seminar, without prior statement of reasons, if developments give cause for this and without being liable for compensation. In addition to these course conditions, the General delivery and payment conditions of Tech Data apply.
Rates, invoicing and payment
The prices for the courses are stated on the Tech Data Events website, Global Knowledge website or in a valid written quote from Tech Data. These prices are entirely without obligation and expressed in euros, excluding VAT.
Invoicing takes place after the start of the course. Payment must be made by crediting the amount stated on the invoice to the Tech Data bank account, stating the invoice number and invoice date. The invoice amount must be transferred according to the payment conditions linked to the client number on the bank account of Tech Data BV.
Realization and registration of the assignment
Tech Data only accepts those course assignments for which it has the qualifications. The teachers to be deployed in a course on behalf of Tech Data should be able to work effectively on that course assignment through knowledge, experience and personal characteristics.
Registration for courses must be done by submitting a fully completed registration form. Telephone registrations must be confirmed in writing via the original registration form. In addition, it is possible to register via the Tech Data Events website or Global Knowledge. The registration by the Client will only be final after confirmation by Tech Data. Tech Data reserves the right to exclude individual course participants.
Tech Data declares that it has all the facilities required for the proper execution of the course assignment. Unless stated otherwise, the courses are given at Tech Data in Ternat. Where appropriate, courses can also be given at other locations. The language of instruction of the courses is, unless otherwise indicated, Dutch or French. The course material is usually written in English, but sometimes also in Dutch and French.
When providing courses at the Client’s location, agreements are made about the conditions that the facilities at the location in question must meet. If, during the implementation of the courses, it appears that the agreed conditions have not been met and that the quality of the course can no longer be guaranteed by Tech Data, Tech Data reserves the right not to give or discontinue the course.
Note: If Tech Data decides not to give or discontinue the course, Tech Data is entitled to claim compensation for costs already incurred.
Cancellation by the client
Cancellation by the Client of participation of one or more students, or of the rental of a teacher or a classroom can be done free of charge up to fifteen (15) working days before the start of the course. If you cancel between fifteen (15) and five (5) working days before the start of the course, 50% of the course fee is due. In case of cancellation within five (5) working days before the start of the course or in case of a no-show, the full course fee is due.
In the event of a unilateral cancellation by the Client, the Client does not automatically have the right to replace the course or to hire a room or teacher at a different time. Moving a course assignment to another moment counts as cancellation of the order placed. A new order must be placed according to the established procedure.
Note: Cancellations must be confirmed in writing and in time. This can be by post, fax or e-mail.
Cancellation by Tech Data
Tech Data reserves the right to cancel a training course without giving any reason and without being obliged to pay any compensation towards the Client. Only in the circumstance that this cancellation is attributable to Tech Data, Tech Data will be obliged to pay compensation that is limited to reimbursement of the course fee paid by the Client.
Tech Data will maintain confidentiality with regard to the use of the confidential information provided or made known to him in the training relationship.

For didactic reasons, Tech Data sets a maximum and a minimum for the number of participants per course. Tech Data reserves the right to postpone or cancel courses for which there are insufficient registrations.
