These terms & conditions apply to each order that Presidian Legal Publications ("Presidian") accepts from a customer ("You") for a workshop and/or seminar ("Workshop").  

 

1. 

Payment

 

Payment must be received prior to attendance. Credit card payments attract a 2.5% surcharge.

2.

Cancellations 14 days or more prior to the workshop will attract a 5% cancellation fee. Cancellations less than 14 days, but more than 2 work days, prior to the workshop will attract a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellations less than 2 work days prior to a workshop are non-refundable. We reserve the right to cancel a workshop (eg due to insufficient registrations) in which case all registration fees will be refunded.

Catering

 

If catering is provided at the Workshop, you agree to notify us at the time of registration as to any special dietary requirements you have so that we may notify our caterers accordingly.    

4. 

Not legal advice

 

(1)

Presidian is a provider of legal information – it does not engage in providing legal advice. Any training materials (“Materials”) provided, and/or statements made by the Workshop facilitator (including any responses made to specific questions posed by participants) ("Statements"), at the Workshop are not intended to be, nor do they constitute, legal or other professional advice. They are intended solely to provide generalised legal information. Various laws, provisions and issues will generally be omitted from Materials to ensure workshops and seminars can be delivered within suitable time-frames. Where any Statements are made in response to specific questions posed by participants, this is strictly on the basis that they are not legal advice but rather general legal information (as the facilitator has not had an opportunity to gather relevant factual information or give detailed consideration in the context of specific circumstances). If you require assistance or advice on specific issues, you should seek legal or other professional advice, as appropriate, before acting or relying on any of the contents of Materials or Statements. 

 

(2)

Without limitation on sub-clause (2), in the event that any Statements are deemed to be legal or other professional advice, you hereby agree and acknowledge that such advice is provided directly by the Workshop facilitator solely in his or her capacity as a lawyer or other professional advisor and as part of his or her practice of the law or other profession, as the case may be, under his or her relevant business trading name and is not provided by Presidian and is in no way connected with or delivered as a consequence of Presidian’s activities including where the Workshop facilitator undertakes work for, or is otherwise associated with, Presidian in another capacity such as author, contractor, officer, employee and/or agent.

 

(3)

In relation to this clause 4, Presidian contracts in its own capacity and as agent for the Workshop facilitator.

5.

Limitation of liability and indemnity

 

(1)

To the extent permitted by law Presidian and/or all other persons involved in the preparation, production and/or presentation of the Workshop and/or Materials ("Third Parties") will be under no liability whatsoever to you in respect of any loss or damage (including consequential loss or damage) which you may suffer or incur (directly or indirectly) in connection with or as a result of the Workshop and/or this agreement ("Agreement") whether arising from any act or omission negligent or otherwise by Presidian and/or the Third Parties.

 

(2)

Without limiting sub-clause (1), if Presidian and/or a Third Party is/are rendered liable in any way in relation to, or arising from, the Workshop or this Agreement, such liability will, at the option of Presidian or Third Party, as appropriate, and to the extent permitted by law, be limited to a refund of the registration fee.

 

(3)

In relation to this clause 5, Presidian contracts in its own capacity and as agent for the Third Parties.

6.

No warranties

 

(1)

Subject to sub-clause (2):

 

 

(a)

the Workshop and Materials are provided without warranties of any kind, either express or implied; and

 

 

(b)

any condition or warranty which would otherwise be implied in the Agreement is hereby excluded.

 

(2)

Where legislation or other law implies any condition or warranty in relation to this Agreement, and that law avoids or prohibits provisions in a contract excluding or modifying the application of or exercise of or liability under such condition or warranty, the condition or warranty is included or implied in the Agreement.  Presidian’s liability under any such condition or warranty will, at the option of Presidian and to the extent permitted by law, be limited to the price of the Workshop.

7. 

Programme & venue variation

 

Presidian may change the venue of the Workshop for any reason (eg. higher than anticipated attendance numbers).  Presidian may vary the Workshop programme to deal with any unforeseen circumstances, provided the content of the Workshop  is not substantially altered. 

8.

Severance

 

Every provision of this document is independent of the other and any provision, or part of a provision, which is prohibited or unenforceable will be ineffective to the extent only of such prohibition or unenforceability and the other part or parts of the provision (if any) and all other provisions of this Agreement will remain in force.

9. 

Governing Law

 

The laws of South Australia in Australia govern this Agreement and the parties expressly submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts and tribunals of that State.

10. 

Entire Agreement

 

The Agreement supersedes all previous oral and written agreements or arrangements, if any, in respect of its subject matter and embodies the entire agreement between the parties.

11.
