III. Assignment (agreement)
a. An agreement shall only come into effect once the Commissioner has accepted the order constructed by Bureau Land and signed a Registration Form or when the Commissioner has demonstrated in any other way to accept the order.
b. For the Commissioner, natural person, who has signed up for the (training) programmes, trainings, workshops etc. offered by Bureau Land with open registration, the registration represents ‘distance selling’ and it gives the Commissioner the legal right to a reflection period of 14 workdays. If the Commissioner wishes to use this ‘consideration period’, he/she should indicate per email and within 14 workdays after the registration that he/she wants to withdraw his/her registration under the conditions of the legal consideration period. In all other cases, the Commissioner can cancel the registration free of charge up to 4 weeks before the start of the (training) programme / module. If the registration is canceled within four weeks before the start of the (training) programme / module, the Commissioner is obliged to pay half of the total amount of the programme. If the Commissioner does not cancel, or cancels after the start of the programme, he/she is obliged to pay the full amount.
c. If a so-called “coaching talk” is canceled within 24 hours before the appointment, the Client (Commissioner) can only recoup the appointment if the Commissioner has paid the applicable hourly rate for individual coaching.
