Tribe Red Leaf and Tribe Archipelago Workshop Terms & Conditions

By registering for the Tribe Archipelago workshop with Red Leaf Studios Inc. (“Red Leaf” or “we/us/our”), you (“participant” or “you/your”) agree to the following Terms & Conditions (also referred to as the “Agreement”).  

1.    Fees.  A non-refundable booking fee in the amount stated in the workshop description is required at the time of your booking and must be sent with the completed workshop application form to Don Bringas.  The balance of the workshop fees is due at least four (4) weeks before the workshop starts.  If full payment is not received by the specified dates, Red Leaf reserves the right to treat the booking as cancelled and retain the booking fee.  If you apply for the workshop less than four (4) weeks before the workshop date, the full cost of the workshop is immediately payable.   

Receipt of the booking fee does not automatically guarantee that your application has been accepted.  For example, the workshop might be fully booked by the time your booking fee is received.  Your booking will be confirmed in writing via email and it is at the time this confirmation is sent that you have accepted this Agreement.  If your application is not accepted at the time of paying the booking fee, any fees that you have paid will be refunded.  

2.    Cancellation by Participant and Ticket Transfers.  Any cancellation by the participant must be made in writing by email to both support@tribearchipelago.com & info@donbringas.com .  The date on which the email is received will determine the cancellation charges that are applicable.  These charges are expressed as a percentage of the total workshop price (including the non-refundable booking fee) and are as follows:  42 days or more before the workshop: refund of 50% of total fee (i.e., booking fee retained); 41-28 days before the workshop: refund of 25% of total fee; 27 days or less before departure: no refund.  
You may transfer your workshop ticket to another individual (the “transferee”) so long as you provide written notice of such a transfer to Don Bringas (info@donbringas.com) (at least two (2) weeks before the workshop date with the full name and contact information for the transferee.  In the event of a transfer, you are responsible for paying all fees and the transferee is bound by terms of this Agreement.   

3.    Cancellation by Red Leaf.  Red Leaf reserves the right to cancel any workshop.  Should an alteration or cancellation become necessary, you will have the choice of accepting the change, taking an alternative workshop (the difference will be refunded if it is a lower priced workshop), or withdrawing from this Agreement and accepting a refund of fees paid.  In the event that a workshop is cancelled, you will not receive a refund for any costs that you have incurred in connection with the workshop other than the workshop fees, including without limitation, fees for airfare, accommodations and transportation.   

4.    Changes to the Workshop.  The workshop coordinator and any speakers will be identified at the time the workshop is announced.  If the workshop coordinator or any speakers are unable to attend, we will attempt to find someone with equivalent experience and skills to replace that person, but no fees will be refunded to participant unless the workshop itself is cancelled pursuant to Section 3 of this Agreement.  
The type of workshops Red Leaf offers require flexibility and participants must allow for alternatives.  Accordingly, the outline itinerary and the workshop description is only an indication of what may take place on the workshop, and not as a contractual obligation on the part of Red Leaf.  

5.    Additional Costs.  Unless otherwise stated in the workshop promotional materials, we are not responsible for arranging or paying for your lodging, meals or transportation.  Red Leaf and/or the workshop coordinator may assist you with making travel arrangements, but you are solely responsible for such arrangements and costs.  

6.    Dietary Restrictions and Special Requests.  If you have any special dietary or other requests you should inform us of these prior to the workshop.  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.

7.    Limitation of Liability.  Red Leaf is not liable or responsible for death, bodily injury or illness caused to any participant unless it is caused by the negligent act and/or omission of Red Leaf’s employees or agents.  Red Leaf does not accept liability for any loss or additional expense caused by the delay or interruption to your travel or the workshop through weather conditions, civil disturbance, industrial action, strikes, wars, floods or sickness.  Such losses or additional expenses are solely your responsibility.  
The Workshop is provided “as is” and Red Leaf makes no warranties with respect to the Workshop, express or implied, including without limitation, warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.  Red Leaf shall not be liable to you or any other person or entity for any general, punitive, special, direct, indirect, consequential or incidental damages, or lost profits, or any other damages, costs or losses arising out of the workshop, or otherwise, even if Red Leaf has been advised of the possibility of such damages, costs or losses.  In no event shall Red Leaf’s total aggregate liability arising from this Agreement and/or the workshop exceed the total fees paid by the participant for the workshop.  

8.    Indemnification.  You agree to indemnify and hold Red Leaf harmless from any and all liability, reasonable costs and expenses (including legal expenses) arising directly or indirectly from any breach by you of any representation, warranty or provision of this Agreement.  

9.    Choice of Law.  This Agreement is governed by the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to conflict of law principles, and the parties agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the subject matter of this Agreement shall be governed by the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. 

10.    Travel Insurance.  You are required to obtain the appropriate travel insurance coverage prior to the workshop if the workshop is being held outside of your country of residence.  The insurance must cover the loss, expenses and damages arising from, including but not limited to, personal accident and injury, medical and repatriation costs (for overseas workshops), loss of baggage and personal money, and belongings and flight cancellations and delays.

13.    Personal Information and Privacy Policy.  Any personal information that you provide to us will be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  

14.    Entire Agreement.  This Agreement contains the entire understanding between the participant and Red Leaf.  It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements between the parties.  In the event that any part of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall remain valid and enforceable.
