Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”)
carefully before using the permaskills.org website (the
“Service”) operated by Robert Brendler – sustainability skills (“us”, “we”, or “our”).
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you do not have permission to access the Service.
Certificate course contents
We want to deliver the most recent knowledge but also a complete experience in our certificate workshops. During workshops we want to cover as much ground as possible. This sometimes means we have to skip minor topics in order to grant more time for the important things. We will however try to cover what was advertised and what is important to you.
We want to build a community and stay in touch with you. So once you have taken a course with us, you can always come back and re-take similar courses to the ones you already took, for free. Meals are not included, but workshop hosts are often happy to provide it as exchange for your help.
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available from us, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.
It is possible to pay cash, but we need a deposit to reserve your spot and discount. See Deposits / Split Payments.
If discounts are limited to certain dates, we expect at least a deposit before that date to secure it for you. See Deposits / Split Payments.
Deposits / Split Payments
We understand that you might not have a big sum like the fees for a 5 week workshop available right away, so we offer the possibility of (non-refundable) deposits of 50% of the discounted price. This deposit has to arrive a month before the booked workshop starts at the latest! The remaining 50% have to be paid a week before the workshop starts, or in cash when attending the workshop.
Right to Refuse Service
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an
unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected. We also reserve the right to cancel your subscription of lifetime membership if we determine that you are sharing or allowing unauthorized use of the services to others and violating the single user licence.
Except when required by law, paid Workshop fees, Subscription fees and lifetime membership fees are non-refundable.
In case we need to reschedule or you can not attend your booked workshop you may attend a similar workshop within 2 years time after the original workshop you booked ends. If we cannot run a workshop for some reason, we will find a replacement or give you a voucher that is valid for 2 years.
Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies
We are constantly updating product and service offerings on the Service and in our Workshops. We may experience delays in updating information on the Service or Workshops and in our advertising on other web sites. The information found on the Service and Workshops may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Products or services may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable on the Service and we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information found on the Service or Workshops.
We therefore reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.
By purchasing video courses, you understand that they are HD videos and a high speed connection is required for best viewing.
Contests, Sweepstakes and Promotions
Any contests, sweepstakes or other promotions (collectively, “Promotions”)
Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis
(“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew
under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or permaskills cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting permaskills customer support team.
A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to
process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide permaskills with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize permaskills to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, permaskills will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
While you may cancel you subscription, no refunds will be given by permaskills. If you cancel your subscription, you will have access until the current paid subscription period ends.
Registration fees are paid once as long as your subscription does not lapse. A subscription is considered lapse if you cancel your subscription or your payment fails for any reason.
permaskills, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Workshop fees or Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
permaskills will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
When you create an account with us, you guarantee that you are above the age of 18, and that the information you provide us is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Inaccurate, incomplete, or obsolete information may result in the immediate termination of your account on the Service.
