2. The Agreement must come into being when ALGEBRA sends the Client confirmation that the Participant has been accepted onto the ABC BootCamps program.
3. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Client and ALGEBRA and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between the Client and ALGEBRA, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter, including but not limited to other similar information that may appear on ALGEBRA’s webpages.
4. The participant acknowledges and agrees that all kinds of information in oral form does not oblige ALGEBRA more than its statements in the ABC BootCamps program of offers in written form. In case of doubt, the following is always considered valid: written offer, written information and written explanation.
3. Amendments to the ABC BootCamps program
ALGEBRA will make all reasonable efforts to deliver the ABC BootCamps program as described in the brochure and on ABC BootCamps website. However, ALGEBRA must manage its resources efficiently and must be entitled:
- to alter the timetable, location, number of classes and method of delivery of the ABC BootCamps program
- to make reasonable variations to the content and syllabus of the ABC BootCamps program.
ALGEBRA will make available to the Participant such learning support, IT and other facilities it considers appropriate, but may vary what it provides from time to time provided such variations are reasonable.
