WORKSHOP TERMS AND CONDITIONS

When you sign up to our workshops you adhere to the information and conditions contained in the website and in this document. Photoevolution reserves the right to modify certain information contained in the workshops documents if the circumstances make it necessary (transportation, lodging, meals provided, transport, excursions and other services included in the package, etc …), but always respecting the same quality level of the original expected services. In the rare cases where some changes are necessary, you will be informed promptly by email.

1.   All bookings are accepted in the order received via email.

Early registration is strongly suggested since we have limited space available.

A non-refundable deposit of the amount stated in the workshop description is required at the time of booking and must be sent with the completed booking form otherwise your place might be lost.

Payment of the deposit and /or balance should be done by means of wire transfer.

An electronic invoice will be sent by email, which will serve as confirmation of booking.

2.   The balance of the cost of the workshop will be due at least 90 days before the workshop starts. If full payment is not received by that time, we reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled and retain the deposit.

3.  If a booking is made less than 90 days prior to the beginning of the workshop, the full cost of the workshop will be due at the time of booking.

4.  Any cancellation by the client must be made in writing. The date on which the letter is received by us, will determine the cancellation charges that are applicable:

90 or more days prior to trip: 100% refund

89-60 days prior to trip: 50% refund

59 days or fewer to trip: 0% refund

No partial refunds are made for any unused portions of services for any reasons.

5.  Photoevolution reserves the right to cancel any workshop at any time. Should an alteration or cancellation become necessary, you will have the choice of accepting the change, taking the other alternative workshop (and where this is of a lower price we will refund the difference), or withdrawing from the contract and accepting a refund of all monies paid to Photoevolution. In addition, in the case of a cancellation and where cancellation is not due to under booking or force majeure as defined below, we will pay you compensation on the following scale: more than 60 days before departure nil; 59-40 days before departure €10 per person; 39-20 days before departure €15; 19-0 days before departure €20 per person. For the avoidance of doubt, as Photoevolution is not party to any flight bookings you make yourself and has received no payment for the same, we will not refund the cost of your flight in the event of workshop cancellation. Your attention is drawn to clause 13 below.

6.  Under booking is the situation in which the minimum number of 6 participants required to run the workshop is not met, and if we have to cancel a workshop because of this we will not do so less than 30 days prior to departure. Force majeure is unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control such as war or the threat of war, riots, terrorist activity, civil strife, industrial disputes, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, flood or adverse weather.

7.  In the event of Robert Marnika being unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond our control, the workshop will be cancelled and the provisions of clause 5 will come into effect.

8.  If you have any special dietary or other requests you should inform us of these prior to departure. We will advise the relevant supplier of your requirements, but we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met and will have no liability to you if such requests are not met.

9.  Flight booking is the client’s responsibility and Photoevolution is not responsible for any expenses, loss or other damage caused to you by the acts or omissions of the carrier.

Photoevolution does not accept liability for any loss or additional expense caused by the delay or interruption to travel services through weather conditions, civil disturbance, industrial action, strikes, wars, floods or sickness. Such losses or additional expenses are the responsibility of the passenger.

Photoevolution is not responsible for extra costs incurred in case of a cancellation of a workshop (e.g. non-refundable air/train/ferry tickets, visa fees if applicable, equipment, miscellaneous transportation costs, medical expenses, travel insurance premiums, etc.). In consideration of this, the purchase of a travel insurance is highly recommended. You are referred to clause 13 below.

10.  Photoevolution does not accept liability or responsibility for death, bodily injury or illness caused to any clients during the workshop with Photoevolution.

11.  The type of workshops we offer requires flexibility and you must allow for alternatives. For this reason the outline itinerary and the workshop description must be taken as an indication of what may take place on the workshop, and not as a contractual obligation on the part of Photoevolution.

12.  You must communicate any perceived failure in the performance of this contract on the spot to the tour leaders thus giving the tour leaders the opportunity to achieve a satisfactory solution. Should this not be possible, you should make your complaint known to us in writing within 28 days of the completion of the workshop.

13.  It is a term of the contract between us that you will obtain the appropriate travel insurance cover before you set out on the workshop. The insurance must cover the loss, expenses and damages arising from, including but not limited to, the cancellation of the workshop (whether whole or in part), loss of baggage, travel documents, personal money and belongings, flight cancellations and delays, stolen luggage.

It is compulsory to be in possession of Health and Accident insurance, with repatriation cover and valid for the location where the workshop is held and the period when the event will take place.

A copy of this policy will be asked before departure. Not presenting it might entitle Photoevolution to cancel your booking, and you will lose any right of reimbursement or compensations for the cancelled place.

14.  You must be in possession of a valid passport and all visas, permits and certificates including medical certificates required for the whole of the journey and you accept responsibility for obtaining the same. All information and advice given by us on visas, vaccinations, climate, clothing, baggage and special equipment is given in good faith.

15.  By signing the booking form you are agreeing to accept all of the above conditions. The person who signs the booking form does so on behalf of all the individuals included on it, so that all are bound by the booking conditions.

16.  You also acknowledge that you have assumed the responsibility that this workshop proposed by Photoevolution, is appropriate to your physical abilities and interests. You are personally responsible for being in sufficiently good health to undertake such activity. By accepting our Terms and Conditions, and by paying the deposit, you certify that you do not knowingly have any physical or other considerations of disability that would represent a risk for you or other participants.
We reserve the rights to request a doctor’s statement of good health.

17.   PhotoEvolution reserves the right to photograph and/or film the workshop events, its participants and locations, and use for its own activity, the material for marketing and promotional purposes including, but not limited to, social media, websites, and blogs.

18.   Exclusivity:
