Overview

The Platform is an online venue where Training Providers offer training services, and Training Buyers find Training Services, and arrange to book and pay for such services. The Platform allows Users to communicate with one another. Training Providers and Training Buyers must register for an account in order to buy or sell Training Services.

Trainingbrite is not the provider of the training services listed on the Platform. Rather, Trainingbrite provides services which allow Training Providers to list, plan, promote, manage booking, and collect payments for Training Services.

The Company is not a party to any contractual agreements between Training Providers and Training Buyers in the online venue, we merely facilitate connections between the parties. We make no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between Users. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users. 

The Company reserve the right, but has no obligation, to monitor interactions between Users. Trainingbrite is not a party to any disputes between Training Providers and Training Buyers, although we provide a dispute resolution mechanism to assist the parties in resolving issues.

Trainingbrite reserves the right to refuse access to the Platform to anyone for any reason at any time.

Trainingbrite may use third party services to verify the information you provide to us and to obtain additional related information and corrections where applicable, and you hereby authorize Trainingbrite to request, receive, use, and store such information for a reasonable period of time.

Contracting Parties

Upon the Training Buyer booking a Training Service from the Training Provider, and the Training Provider’s acceptance, the Training Provider and Training Buyer will be deemed to have entered into a contract (the "Contract") under which the Training Buyer agrees to purchase, and the Training Provider agrees to deliver the Training Service. You agree not to enter into any contractual provisions in conflict with this Agreement.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to other Users. If you do not, you may become liable to that User.

If another Contracting Party breaches any obligation to you, you are solely responsible for legally enforcing any rights that you may have. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no responsibility for enforcing any rights under a User Contract.

To the extent that any component of this Agreement is in conflict with inalienable rights under local laws, all parties intend for this agreement to be read down only insofar as to be in compliance with such local laws and no further.

Additional Terms for Training Providers
Trainingbrite is merely a communication platform, therefore if you list your Training Services, your relationship with Trainingbrite is not a contractual one, you are not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Trainingbrite for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Trainingbrite.

  • provide complete and accurate information as to each Training Service listed through the Platform.
  • conduct all aspects of a transaction that is initiated by a Training Buyer through the Platform within the Platform (for the avoidance of doubt, the identification of a Training Service and/or Training Provider is considered to be initiating a transaction). This means that all aspects of the transaction  between Contracting Parties must occur through the Platform, including (but not limited to) communication and exchange of messages, booking, payment, and reviews.  
  • notify the Learner or the Training Buyer (if different) if any changes to the Training Service are necessary, if these changes materially affect the nature or quality of the Training Service, or the qualification or certification to be gained at the end of the Training Service.

As a Training Provider you agree not to:

  • modify the training instructor, or any other material aspect of the listed Training Service, without prior agreement with the Company and the Training Buyers that have already purchased the Training Service, as this is considered to materially affect the quality of the Course.
  • offer the training service on other websites or platforms at a price which is lower than the price offered on our Platform.
  • cancel the delivery of a Training Service, unless reasonably necessary. A Training Provider who must cancel a listed Training Service must contact Trainingbrite as early as possible at admin@trainingbrite.com. Note that repeated inability to perform agreed-upon Training Services may result in termination of Training Provider’s Account, at the Company’s discretion. Should the training provider cancel a training on short notice (7 days or less before the start of the training), Trainingbrite reserves the right to charge the Provider for a related loss of business up to 25% of the total amount of lost commissions as a penalty for breach of contract.
  • offer training services on Trainingbrite which exceed the price charged for the same service elsewhere.

If Trainingbrite believes that the Training Services provided by the Training Provider do not conform to reasonable standards, or that any of the terms above are not fully adhered to and complied with, Trainingbrite will notify the Training Provider and reserves the rights to remove the Training Services and/or the Training Provider the from the Platform, until all concerns have been resolved, or indefinitely at the full discretion of Trainingbrite.

We may waive this fee (or part of it) for certain social impact Training Services. Except as otherwise provided on the Platform, these fees are non-refundable.

For training courses that require delegates to take an exam to achieve certification, whereby the training provider is required (for each delegate) to purchase an exam voucher from the relevant accrediting organisation, or pay an examination fee to the relevant examination board, Trainingbrite will refund the Training Provider an amount equal to the Trainingbrite commission (18%) for the cost of examination incurred, less the incurred Payment Processing Cost.

Trainingbrite is not a party to any disputes between Contracting Parties, although we provide a dispute resolution mechanism to assist the parties in resolving issues. Trainingbrite reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor or become involved in disputes between Contracting Parties.

The Training Buyer can mark a paid transaction as “disputed” after the transaction request has been approved and before it is marked as “completed”. The Dispute feature is a way for the Training Buyer to clearly communicate to the Training Provider that they are not happy with how the transaction is handled.

While we may (at our own discretion) help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Trainingbrite has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Training Service, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other User Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any User or third party.

Trainingbrite reserves the right to dismiss a dispute and mark a transaction as “completed”, if the Training Buyer is in breach of any of these terms, if the Learner fails to attend the Training Service, or if, in the reasonable opinion of the Training Provider, the Learner’s own lack of diligence has been the primary reason for failure, or if the Learner has been offensive or disruptive to other students or instructors.

Refunds for disputed transactions

Trainingbrite assists the parties in resolving issues and disputed transactions, and decides whether a refund should be offered, or to dismiss the dispute.
