SUE I Behavioural Design Academy B.V., registered with the Chamber of Commerce under number 68921187.

1. Applicability

    1. These terms and conditions apply to the courses offered and booked through the website (https://suebehaviouraldesign.com/academy/courses-overview/) of SUE I Behavioural Design Academy B.V. (hereafter SUE BDA).
    2. Changes to these Terms & Conditions are valid only if agreed in writing.
    3. The customer’s terms and conditions, regardless of what they are called, are expressly excluded.

2. Our courses

    1. Our courses only ever run subject to availability and sufficient interest.
    2. A booking can be cancelled by the customer within 14 days of entering into the agreement, by sending an email requesting cancellation of the booking to [email protected]. All course materials received must then be returned complete, undamaged and in their original packaging.

3. Agreement

    1. The agreement is formed as soon as a course booking has been confirmed in writing by SUE BDA; the length of the agreement is for the duration of the relevant course.
    2. The mission of SUE BDA is “to unlock the power of behavioural psychology to nudge people into making better choices in work, life, and play”. SUE BDA therefore reserves the right to refuse a booking made by any person who, for example, works or is involved with an organisation that promotes racism, sexism, the use of alcohol/drugs/tobacco, violates animal rights, or promotes any other form of unhealthy or unethical behaviour.
    3. SUE BDA makes every effort to provide a quality course with qualified trainers and makes every effort to ensure that the customer can complete the course with the intended result.
    4. Conversely, the customer undertakes to participate fully in the course with dedication and commitment in order to be able to complete it with the intended result.

4. Price and payment

    1. All listed prices include the costs of the course materials mentioned on the website and exclude VAT.
    2. An invoice for the course is issued by SUE BDA immediately after the booking has been confirmed.
    3. SUE BDA applies a payment term of 7 days, unless otherwise stated and on the understanding that the course fee must always be received by SUE BDA using the specified IBAN number before the start of the course.
    4. There is the option of paying course fees in instalments (up to a maximum of 4) by direct debit, provided that the request is made and authorised at the time of booking.
    5. In the event that SUE BDA has written to the customer advising them that they are in default due to non-payment, late payment or partial payment, SUE BDA will then be entitled to prevent the customer from starting or continuing to attend a course; course fees are still payable in full. SUE BDA may also charge reasonable costs incurred for collection, at a minimum amount of €250.

5. Cancellation

    1. In the event that SUE BDA decides to cancel a course, for any reason, SUE BDA may offer the customer the option of attending the course on another date, receiving a credit note or receiving a full refund of the course fee already received.
    2. Bookings may be cancelled by the customer in writing before the start of the course. If the customer cancels their booking, a cancellation fee will be incurred which is a percentage of the course fee depending on how much notice is given:
  1. Up to two weeks before the course: 25%
  2. Up to one week before the course: 50%
  3. Up to three days before the course: 75%
  4. Less than three days before the course: 100%
