Cognitir reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the Terms at any time. Any modifications will be effective immediately upon posting on the Site. If you continue to use the Site after we post modified Terms, this indicates you agree to the modified Terms.
Cognitir reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any or all of the Site (or any part thereof). Cognitir shall not be liable to any user or other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site or its services, except as expressly provided in these Terms.

Individual places on a variety of our courses can be booked through our Site. We currently use a third-party event management platform. Our third-party event management platform accepts payments through methods outlined in the provided order form when you make a booking for a course. You will be required to fill out some registration information and will be required to submit your payment details in order to confirm your place on the course.
Once you have clicked to confirm the booking and payment for the course has been successful we will send you a confirmation email to confirm your place on the course at which point a binding contract between you and us will have been formed. After that time you may only cancel or re-schedule courses in accordance with our cancellation policy set out in the below Course Refund Policy section of these Terms.
The prices applicable to our courses will be as advertised on the Site. For applicable customers, unless otherwise shown, advertised prices are stated inclusive of any booking fees charged by the event management platform. Cognitir is not VAT registered; therefore VAT is not paid on your purchases from us.
If we make any pricing errors on our Site we reserve the right to change the price of any courses to the correct price at any time. If you have already booked onto a course we will notify you of the pricing error as soon as possible and you will either be offered the chance to confirm your place on the course at the correct price or you will be offered a full refund.
All materials included in Cognitir’s courses are for your individual use only and are not to be duplicated, copied, disseminated or distributed without the expressed, written permission of Cognitir LLC, to any other individual or entity. You may access and view such materials on your computer or other internet compatible device, and make single copies or prints of such material for your personal, non-commercial use only.
The courses are designed for illustrative purposes only and do not, in any way, constitute business recommendations or personalized business or legal advice. You should not make any business decisions in reliance on any information provided in any Cognitir course without first consulting with your own business, financial and legal advisors.
Courses will take place at the date and time advertised on the Site. If there are any changes to the venue advertised on the Site for the course, you will be notified of the changes via the email you provide us when booking the course.
It is your responsibility to make sure you arrive at the correct venue in plenty of time prior to the commencement of the relevant course. We cannot be held responsible for any failure to arrive at the correct venue at the correct date and time, and you will not be entitled to a refund or be able to book onto a substitute course if you do not show up for your courses.
You will be required to bring your confirmation email and may be asked to provide a form of identification when you attend any courses booked with us. If you wish to change the name of the person who is attending the Course you may do so at any time provided you notify us in writing no later than 5 working days prior to the start of the course. You can email Cognitir at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to notify Cognitir in writing of the change in course participant may result in the attendee being refused entry onto the Course.
You will be required to use your own computer equipment (including computer charger), pencils, pens, notepads, etc. to take part in the course. We will provide you with the relevant course notes and computer files so you can successfully participate in our courses.
Although we will try to avoid making any changes to our advertised courses once we start to take bookings, it may sometimes be necessary to change the time, date, or the venue of a course from time to time, and we reserve the right to do this at any time in our absolute discretion. We will provide reasonable notice to you prior to the course date of any changes to the time, date, or the venue that we need to make. If you are unable to attend any course that you have already booked onto and paid for as a result of any change that we make you will be entitled to a full refund or offered a substitute place on the same course on another date at your election (subject to availability).
We reserve the right to refuse any attendee on any of our courses at any time and for any reason. If you are refused attendance other than for a breach of these Terms you will be refunded any course fees that you have paid to us for the relevant course.
You agree not to solicit or attempt to solicit, whether directly or indirectly the services of any of our employees, consultants, advisors, representatives or other persons involved in providing our courses at any time after placing your booking for a course for up to 24 months after your attendance on that course.
You may only cancel any course booking made through the Site and obtain a full refund if you notify us in writing of your wish to cancel prior to the first to occur of (i) the end of the third 3 business day after booking your place, or (ii) the fifth day prior to the start of the applicable course. This rule is in place because we send our pre-seminar email with course materials in the week before the seminar.
In the case of illness, you may be eligible for a refund until the course begins. In order to obtain a refund, you need to submit a formal physician's note stating the nature of your illness and the physician’s recommendation to you to not attend the course.
To submit a formal cancellation request to Cognitir LLC, please email: email@example.com.
We reserve the right to cancel any course at any time in our absolute discretion, but we will offer a full refund or provide you with an alternative course date at your election if we choose to cancel a course you have already booked onto.

These Terms and any dispute arising out of your use of the Site is governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey (United States) applicable to contracts made and performed wholly within that State.
We control and operate the Site from our offices in the United States of America. We do not represent that materials on the Site are appropriate for use in other locations. Persons who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. All parties to these terms and conditions waive their respective rights to a trial by jury. The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach thereof) or the Site will be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. [The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against us in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against us any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.]
By using the Site, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and us (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING.
Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against us (except for small-claims court actions) you hereby irrevocably submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located within the county of Somerset, New Jersey, USA or the federal and state courts within closest proximity to Somerset, New Jersey, USA with respect to any dispute arising under the Terms.
We will provide all our courses with reasonable care and skill. Except as expressly provided in these Terms, the Site and our courses are provided on an "as is" basis. We do not make any representation or warranty of any kind, either express or implied (whether by law, custom, statute or otherwise) in relation to our courses or our Site or any other content, products or services provided through it including without limitation any warranties in relation to fitness for a particular purpose or in relation to quality, completeness, accuracy, reliability or non-infringement.
Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you. Please check your local laws for any restrictions of limitations regarding the exclusion of implied warranties.
NotNothing in these Terms is intended to disclaim or exclude any warranty or liability that cannot be disclaimed or excluded by operation of applicable law.
Cognitir requires that course participants not use knowledge and skills obtained from Cognitir products and services to perform any illegal activities anywhere in the world. The legality of such activities shall be determined by local law of the place where the action occurs. Cognitir cannot realistically control what participants do with the acquired knowledge and skills from Cognitir products and services; therefore, Cognitir is in no way responsible or liable for the actions of past, present, and future course participants.
Cognitir agrees to fully comply with any legal requirements of court orders or subpoenas that are issued to the company.
