Notice will be given by posting the change to the Terms and Conditions on the Learning Point website. Pass Holder agrees to check the website periodically for changes to these Terms. Any use of the Smart Pass after changes have been made shall be deemed acceptance of those changed terms and/or conditions.
4. Smart Pass Provision.
Learning Point Group hereby grants each Pass Holder a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable right to 1) reserve and register its employees in any and all of Learning Point’s Smart Pass Offerings, 2) access to certain online Smart Pass Offerings and information, which may or may not be available at any given point in time, and 3) use the content and materials obtained in said Smart Pass Offerings according to the provisions and restrictions contained herein. These privileges are subject to the payment of the applicable Smart Pass fees and adherence to these Terms.
5. Specific Smart Pass Privileges and Procedures.
Smart Pass Holders, and their respective employees (Users) may reserve seats and/or register for Learning Point Group’s Smart Pass Offerings, provided space is still available for a given Offering.
Smart Pass Offerings may be attended by any person or persons the Smart Pass Holder authorizes to attend the Offering using the Pass Holder’s access code.
To reserve a seat or register for a given Offering, the Pass Holder must register the User on the Learning Point website and/or for the specific Offering, using the unique Smart Pass Code provided to the Pass Holder. The User’s complete information must also be entered during registration. Registration must be completed by using the registration tool at www.LearningPointGroup.com or by calling Learning Point at 1-888-823-1646.
Unless otherwise specified in writing, the Smart Pass is valid for 12 months from the date the Smart Pass was purchased.
Smart Passes are non-refundable. In the event that Learning Point cancels or discontinues a specific Offering for which the Smart Pass Holder had Users registered, and Learning Point does not provide a reasonable alternative for that specific Offering, the Pass Holder may request a Smart Pass refund. A portion of the original Smart Pass fee may then be refunded to the Smart Pass Holder based on the number of months remaining until the Smart Pass expires and the number of times the Smart Pass has already been used for Smart Pass Offerings at standard rates.
EXAMPLE: If the original Smart Pass fee was $12,000, and a refund is requested with six months remaining with reasonable cause to request a refund, and the Smart Pass Holder had Users registered for 10 Smart Pass Offerings at a standard rate of $500 per Offering, the following formula would apply. ($12,000 / 12 months = $1,000 x 6 months remaining = $6,000) – (10 Offerings @ $500 = $5,000) = $1,000 Refund.
Discounts, rebates or other special offers associated with the promotion of Learning Point’s events outside of the Smart Pass Offerings may not be valid in conjunction with Smart Pass privileges.
The number of Smart Passes Learning Point Group offers to organizations will be limited. Learning Point Group may increase or decrease the price of a Smart Pass at any time and for any reason. In addition, Learning Point Group may increase or decrease the quantity of Smart Passes available for sale at any time for any reason. However, once a Smart Pass is purchased, Learning Point will honor that Smart Pass, at the price for which it was sold, and for the length of the Smart Pass term and according to these Terms and Conditions.
The rights and privileges associated with the Smart Pass are effective only upon payment in full of the Smart Pass fees.
Certain Smart Pass Offerings have a limited seating capacity. The “first-come-first-serve” rule applies to Smart Pass Holders. If a given Offering becomes full before You register for that workshop, Your right to reserve a seat in that Offering will not apply. Information on available offerings and dates will be maintained current on the Learning Point website.
Users and Attendees are solely responsible for ensuring that they have sufficient means, equipment, and transportation to access the Offerings for which they register, whether online or in person.
6. Modifications, Scheduling, Cancellations, and Restrictions.
Learning Point Group strives to provide the Offerings as they are scheduled, without cancellation or rescheduling. To that end, Learning Point Group will make all reasonable efforts to hold each and every Offering as scheduled and to keep the Learning Point website current and accurate. However, from time to time, certain Offerings may be cancelled or rescheduled due to conditions outside of Learning Point’s reasonable control. Such conditions include, but are not limited to: low enrollment, participant cancellations, force majeure, acts of God, and power outages.
In the event that Learning Point cancels or discontinues a specific Offering for which the Smart Pass Holder had Users registered, and Learning Point does not provide a reasonable alternative for that specific Offering, the Pass Holder may request a Smart Pass refund. A portion of the original Smart Pass fee may then be refunded to the Smart Pass Holder based on the number of months remaining until the Smart Pass expires and the number of times the Smart Pass has already been used for Smart Pass Offerings at standard rates.
EXAMPLE: If the original Smart Pass fee was $12,000, and a refund is requested with six months remaining with reasonable cause to request a refund, and the Smart Pass Holder had Users register for 10 Smart Pass Offerings at a standard rate of $500 per Offering, the following formula would apply. ($12,000 / 12 months = $1,000 x 6 months remaining = $6,000) – (10 Offerings @ $500 = $5,000) = $1,000 Refund.
Learning Point Group endeavors to provide the highest quality learning experience to its Users. To that end, Learning Point Group reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change, modify, or discontinue any aspect or feature of its Offerings and the content therein. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions will be effective immediately upon the change being made. In addition, Learning Point Group reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to restrict or refuse Access, in whole or in part, to any Smart Pass Holder, User, or other person, if it deems that such access would be disruptive or detrimental to the experience of any other User; or if Learning Point deems that a breach of this Agreement has occurred.
To ensure proper enrollment for each Offering and preserve the learning experience for all Users, Smart Pass Holder and User agree to attend and participate in any and all Offerings for which they have registered. If the User must cancel or reschedule, the User or Smart Pass Holder is required to contact Learning Point Group by telephone (360-992-0830) or email ([email protected]) at least 10 business days prior to the scheduled Offering date and receive a cancellation confirmation. If a registered User does not show for the Offering and has not cancelled or rescheduled at least 10 business days prior to the event and received a confirmation code, the User will be considered a “No Show.” In the case where there is a pattern of three or more “No Shows” from a given Smart Pass, Learning Point Group reserves the right to deactivate that Smart Pass until the “No Show” issue is resolved and reactivation fee of $500 is paid by the Smart Pass Holder. Once the fee is paid, the Smart Pass Holder will be able to resume use the Smart Pass. If a Smart Pass Holder has repeated deactivations due to “No Shows,” Learning Point Group reserves the right to cancel the remainder of their Smart Pass without refund.
