The instructor has the right to terminate the agreement with immediate effect if the number of applications is less than the required minimum number of participants. Concerning the photography workshop at Lysefjord in Norway, the minimum number of participants is five.

Cancellations between 60 days and 30 days before the start of the course will result in the student being entitled to a refund of 50% of the course fee. Cancellations up to 30 days before the photo workshop or on the day the photo workshop begins will result in the student not being entitled to a refund of the course fee, and the student will be liable for the full amount.

In the event of late payment, the student will be in default. Notification in writing will be sent to the student by or on behalf of the instructor, stating that the outstanding amount for payment must be paid within 7 working days. If no payment is made, the agreement will be deemed cancelled on the day of default. The instructor is entitled to charge the student for the subsequent cancellation costs.
Until the payment of the amount due for the photo workshop has been made by the student, the instructor has the right to make reasonable amendments to the amount of the tuition fee in connection with changes in transportation costs, taxes or other charges.

For these alternatives, the order of registration determines the order on the waiting list or the other workshop date. A student on the waiting list can be placed in the workshop up to 30 days before the photo workshop, in case a student with a place is removed from the workshop.

Article 10 Amendments by Instructor
The local circumstances and the active nature of the photo workshop may result in amendments to the programme either before or during the workshop. Amendments may include certain components of the programme being changed, cancelled or replaced due to the weather or other circumstances, which will result in a different programme to that publicised. The instructor agrees to minimise any adverse effects on students and to offer alternatives that preserve the character of the workshop as much as possible.
The amendments referred to in Article 8.1 will be considered amendments within the meaning of Article 505 of the Dutch Civil Code (Burgerlijk Wetboek (BW)) (Book 7). Said changes will have no impact on the course fee, unless otherwise agreed, nor shall the student have a claim for damages against the instructor on these grounds.

Article 11a Liability
The instructor is not liable for damage and/or loss of property and goods belonging to students. The instructor also accepts no liability for personal injury to students or injury or other damages resulting from events that take place during the photo workshop.
Instructor is not liable for damage caused by:
– failure to fulfil the implementation of the agreement on the grounds that the circumstances are attributable to the student, including damage to the health and physical condition of the student.
– damage due to circumstances, actions and influences that are attributable to students themselves, fellow students or third-parties who may or may not be involved in the implementation of the agreement
– circumstances that are not the fault of the instructor and/or cannot reasonably be attributed to the instructor by law or the standards in force in society.
– Acts of war, strikes, political conditions, mechanical failure, natural disasters or other causes that result in force majeure being invoked and the consequences of which could not reasonably have been avoided
– loss, theft or damage of property, including money.

Article 11b Liability and health
The student declares to be in sufficiently good health and condition to partake in the photo workshop.
The instructor is not liable for any personal injury to participants, or any injury or other harm as a result of the student’s health problems or physical limitations.

Article 12 Complaints and Disputes
Any complaints during the photo workshop should be discussed with the instructor immediately. The instructor is obliged to provide an appropriate solution. If the complaint cannot be settled satisfactorily at the location, a complaint may be filed in writing with the instructor within one month of returning to the Netherlands.
If the student has not complied with the obligation to produce a complaint report and the instructor has therefore not been given an opportunity to rectify the shortcoming, any rights to compensation for damages shall be excluded or limited.
The student may choose to have the complaint heard by the competent court in the location of the instructor up to two months after the photo workshop (or the original departure date).
