Period of commitment and renewal
The Workshop it! Service is delivered via a subscription subject to an initial commitment of one (1) year, billed in full at the start of the period.
The subscription commences on the date the Client Area is created in Workshop it!.
The subscription is then renewed by tacit agreement for further periods of one (1) year, unless it is cancelled by the Client by registered letter no later than three (3) month before the expiry date.
The Workshop it! Service is provided at the rates in effect when the order is recorded by WORKSHOP IT, as stated on the www.workshop-it.digital website, depending on the package selected or as per the Order Form drawn up by WORKSHOP IT. Prices are indicated in euros excluding VAT.
We reserve the right to change our prices at any time. The new prices are applicable immediately to new subscriptions and on expiry of the current period to ongoing subscriptions.
Prices do not include additional expenses incurred through third parties, e.g. internet access charges, data transfer charges or calls invoiced by internet or telephone operators.
Unless agreed to the contrary on the Order or the Invoice, payment is due on receipt of the invoice. WORKSHOP IT is entitled to charge interest at the rate authorised by the applicable law on any amounts remaining unpaid on their due dates.
Cancellation / Suspension
The Client is entitled to cancel his subscription at any time by registered letter, giving at least three (3) month’s notice.
The final payment balance for the period is calculated on receipt of the notice as follows:
- Credit cannot be granted during the first year of subscription
- During the renewal period, credit is calculated on the basis of the subscription amount for the current period, as a proportion of the outstanding credit for workshops relative to any credit acquired as per the package subscribed to, but may not be less than the pro-rata amount remaining for the period and applied on the same basis.
- The credit thus calculated is deducted from the outstanding amount owed by the Client for the current period. If the result is positive, the balance is still owed by the Client as per the above-mentioned terms of payment. If it is negative, the balance will be paid by WORKSHOP IT within 30 days.
At the end of the notice period, the Workshop it! Client Area is automatically deleted along with all attached information (Client Content). This operation is final and irreversible.
WORKSHOP IT reserves the right to suspend the Workshop it! Service provided to the Client and/or to block his Area or User Accounts:
- if the Client breaches the terms of payment,
- if WORKSHOP IT has valid grounds to suspect that the Client is breaching any provision of the Contract or the present Terms and Conditions.
The Service may be cancelled automatically by either party in the event of force majeure.
Free trial: WORKSHOP IT reserves the right to refuse to open, or to block or delete a Client Area created during a free trial on the mere suspicion of misuse or a breach of the present Terms and Conditions.
The Client undertakes to use the Services solely for his internal business requirements and to refrain from selling or transferring his rights to use the Service to a third party.
Reopening or reusing a given Workshop it! Workshop to address a second topic is not permitted.
A given Facilitator account cannot be used for two workshops simultaneously.
