If a student does not attend a scheduled course without the required prior notification, the funds will be forfeited, and rescheduling will be allowed.
Class Cancellations and Rescheduling
In the unlikely situation where we need to cancel or reschedule one of the training events listed on our website, registered students can enrol in the next available offering of the course or cancel their registration. In the event of cancellation by Fortify Institute, any payment made for the cancelled class will be refunded in full. The registered student understands and agrees that Fortify Institute shall not, in any way, be held responsible for any costs, including loss of airfare or other transportation costs, hotel expenses, or other damages, which the registered student may suffer in the event that the instructor cancels or reschedules a class.
Any unresolved dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the Site, or any Material, Product, or Service available from the Site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section below. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed to location.
We both agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial.
We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuses of intellectual property rights.
