In any case, Polimoda’s Management reserves the right to make, at any time, any possible necessary change to the educational, organizational and logistic manners of the chosen Course. It is also intended now that Polimoda reserves also the right to change the start/end date of the Course at its own discretion.

You declare to have read and examined, prior to purchase, the Course description in which are clearly shown the main features of the Course, the schedule (including the number of teaching hours), the price and the payment methods/deadlines.

Some of the lessons may be performed online via the internet, and thus video-audio link between the Students and the teacher; in respect to these lessons, the Student will be provided with all necessary instructions, credential, and links in order to be able to connect to the virtual classes through the platform that Polimoda will decide to use for the delivery of the on-line lessons. In such a case the presence of the Student at the lessons, as well as his/her eventual absence, will be detected by means of the e-learning platform that Polimoda will use for the delivery of the online lessons. The setting of the online lessons may also provide for the uploading of the documents, of any type, possibly made by the Student as part of his/her participation in the Course, for sharing them with the teacher and/or other students. It is therefore intended that the image and voice of the Student and/or the uploaded/shared documents (e.g. creations, projects, essays, the screen of their own devices, etc.) shall be thus transmitted, remotely and in real-time, to the teacher and to the class of the reference Course; moreover, the setting may also provide for the audio/video-recording, by the platform, of the images, voices, and documents above, during the training activity. At the end of the eventual audio/video-recorded lessons and at the end of the Course, these lessons, including all relevant contents above specified (images, voices, documents), may also be kept on the platform and within the institutional digital archives of Polimoda without limits of space and time, in order to be used for educational, institutional and promotional purposes by Polimoda. Anyhow, there will not be the possibility of downloading the lessons on the personal computer devices used by the students from time to time.

Some editions of Polimoda Professional Training Courses will be performed entirely online or entirely in presence.

The final certificate of attendance will be issued solely to students who have attended at least the 80% of the total hours of the Course.

The Course will only be confirmed if the minimum number of students deemed appropriate by the competent Board of Polimoda is reached; should enrolments not reach said minimum number, the entire tuition fee will be promptly reimbursed to the student. No further claim can be made apart from reimbursement of the entire fee. The tuition fee due payment must be made according to the conditions and deadlines provided. All fees must be paid in euros.

In the event that the payment is not successful, actually the order shall be considered dissolved according to and for the purposes of art. 1456 c.c. and the student shall be immediately informed by email of the cancellation of the order. In order to ensure the security of the payments made on the website and to prevent any fraud, Polimoda reserves the right to ask the student, in case of payment by credit card in which the holder of the order is different from the card’s holder, to provide the identity card of the latter. The document must be currently valid. In the same request, the deadline within which the document has to arrive at Polimoda will be specified. In any case, this term shall not exceed 5 working days starting from the reception of Polimoda’s request. Pending the requested document, the order shall be suspended. The student has to send the requested documents within the mentioned term. In the event that Polimoda does not receive the credit card’s holder identity card by the term indicated in the Polimoda’s request or receives expired or invalid documents, this order shall be resolved by law in accordance with and for the purposes of art. 1456 c.c. and the order consequently deleted, except for Polimoda’s right to restore any damages it may suffer due to the student’s non-compliance behavior.

It is declared, since now, that if the online payment method is chosen, Polimoda uses BNL’s secure payment which uses the SSL security protocol. The confidential credit card’s details (card number, holder, expiration date, security code) are encrypted and transmitted directly to the payment manager without passing through the servers which Polimoda uses. Polimoda does not have access and neither store the credit card data used by the student for the payment of the Course. If requested, the commercial invoice shall be issued. A commercial invoice shall be sent to the student by e-mail. For the invoice’s issue, the information provided by the student through the form shall be taken as authentic.
