6. COPYRIGHT / INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
6.1. The copyright in and all other intellectual property rights relating to the course documentation, and any other training materials provided to the course participants, are solely owned by and hereby reserved to Magento. Under no circumstances may the whole or any part of the course documentation be produced or copied in any form or by any means or translated into another language without the prior written permission of Magento. Training materials are defined to also include all electronic knowledge products or learning systems, which have been given to the participant on a storage device or made accessible via the Internet. Any software provided as learning aids are not to be used in any commercial form. Offenders are liable for payment of damages.
7.1. For courses that have mandatory pre-requisites, participants may apply for a waiver if they believe their existing knowledge and experience are sufficient to attend a Magento training course without having completed its prerequisites. Upon receipt of a waiver request, a Magento instructor may contact the participant to verbally assess his/her knowledge and experience in order to determine whether or not it is appropriate to provide the participant with a prerequisite waiver.
7.2. If the requested waiver is issued, it is the full responsibility of the participant to ensure that the knowledge and/or experience that s/he may lack does not disturb the other participants in the class. By accepting a prerequisite waiver, the participant accepts that any topics that would have been part of one or more of the prerequisite course(s) will not be covered during or after the course for which s/he registered.
8. COURSE CONTENT.
8.1. Magento reserves the right to amend the content of any course without notice to the participants where, at the sole discretion of Magento, such amendment is deemed not to fundamentally change the content of such course.
9. RULES OF PARTICIPATION.
9.1. On-site or Off-site Classroom Sessions:
a. Participants are requested to come to the training site 30 minutes before the start of class on the first day. Participants and/or their supervisors are requested not to make return travel arrangements or assign work that may affect or disrupt the duration of the course.
b. Each student attending Magento courses shall comply with all regulations and procedures established and communicated for the course. The customer shall remain responsible for the activities and behavior of its participants while on Magento premises or any off-site location that the class may be held. The customer is liable to pay for any damage that is caused by their participant to any property belonging to Magento or any off-site location that the class may be held.

g. Magento reserves the right to exclude (a) participant(s) from attending any course due to disorderly conduct, failure to observe any of Magento’s rules of participation or failure to attend the prerequisite class(es) for a particular course without having obtained a valid pre-requisite waiver.

10. WARRANTIES AND LIABILITIES.
10.1.

11.1. The price of on-site and/or customized training shall be negotiated prior to the offering. For training at the customer's requested location, all travel, accommodation and living expenses for the instructor(s) must be paid for by the customer in addition to daily course cost, unless specifically agreed differently by the customer and the Magento Training Manager. Quotes for on-site training delivery and customized training as issued by Magento shall be valid for 1 (one) month, unless specifically agreed differently by the customer and the Magento Training Manager. The validity period applies to the price offered in the quote. A quote does not guarantee that Magento will have the necessary resources available to deliver the specified training at the requested time.
11.2. In the case of customized training, no chargeable work shall be undertaken by Magento before a valid form of payment is received.
11.3. In case of cancellation, notification must be received in writing.

Cancellations with less than 3 (three) days notice are 100% non-refundable. In addition, any chargeable work already undertaken by Magento will also be charged to the client.
11.4. If any classroom, classroom equipment, hardware or software provided by the client for use by Magento in the delivery of training to the client is not provided as agreed, Magento will not be responsible for any associated inconvenience or disruption caused to the training delivery and reserves the right to invoice for the training delivery in full.
