Unless otherwise indicated, the Sites and all content and other materials therein, including, without limitation, the Phoenix TS logo and all designs, text, graphics, pictures, information, data, software, sound files, other files and the selection and arrangement thereof (collectively, “Site Materials”) are the proprietary property of Phoenix TS or its licensors or users and are protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
COPYRIGHT AND TRADEMARK NOTICES:
All contents of the Sites are: Copyright 2020 by Phoenix TS and/or its suppliers. All rights reserved.
DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (“DMCA”) NOTICE
If you believe any material available via the Sites infringes a copyright you own or control, you may file a notification of such infringement at email@example.com.
Please see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. You should note that if you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Phoenix TS has also adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and in our sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Phoenix TS may also, in its sole discretion, limit access to the Sites and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
JURISDICTION AND COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS
In the rare case that Phoenix TS cancels a scheduled class, Phoenix TS shall immediately contact the student for rescheduling into a future class date. Optionally, the customer may choose to receive a class voucher that can be used to register for any of our course offerings and future class dates. At customer request, a refund can be provided to the payer of the original transaction. All refunds are processed via check and can take up to 30 days to be received.
Should a student, or sponsoring organization or government entity, choose to cancel a registration or withdraw from a class, the customer shall receive a class voucher that can be used to register for any of our course offerings and future class dates. Please note that this is the only option should such a situation take place within 10 business days from the class start date. Outside of 10 business days from the class start date, the customer may request a refund. The refund will be provided to the payer of the original transaction. All refunds are processed via the original payment method, whether by check or credit card, and can take up to 15 days to be received. If portal access was granted and the student accesses relevant class portal content, this constitutes class attendance and, even in the event that the class is more than 10 business days from the class start date, will result in the customer forfeiting a refund for the class. Should the student wish to reschedule the class to a later date, the student will be considered a “no-show” for the original class date with eligibility to audit a later class date. Audit students are subject to seat availability of future classes.
Training and exam vouchers, flex plans, and flex packs are not refundable, but are transferable.
In the rare case that Phoenix TS discontinues a product offering, Phoenix TS shall provide the customer a credit voucher that can be applied towards any other Phoenix TS product or offering. At customer request, a refund can be provided to the payer of the original transaction. All refunds are processed via the original payment method, whether by check or credit card, and can take up to 15 days to be received.
Once the date of a registered class has arrived or the customer has begun to take advantage of the service or product (whether in whole or in part) sold by Phoenix TS, the above options are no longer relevant as the service or product purchased is deemed to have been delivered. The only exception to this policy is when disruption, cancellation, or discontinuance of access to the purchased service or product results from a natural act, government orders, or a condition invoked by Phoenix TS.
