Terms and Conditions under Australian Consumer Law
These Terms and Conditions do not affect any rights registrants may have under the Australian Consumer Law as set out in Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (as amended from time to time).
By registering for a MIAL course, event or activity, MIAL’s Booking Terms and Conditions are acknowledged and accepted.
MIAL will send an automated email confirming the registration to the email address provided with the booking. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to update the email address provided or other contact details. Once the confirmation email has been sent, the registration is valid for the purposes of cancellations, transfers and payments.
MIAL reserves the right to seek payment on invoices issued to email addresses incorrectly provided at registration and not corrected.
MIAL may send a reminder and/or final email to the email address provided with the booking prior to the course, event or activity. Occasionally, information will change after registration, it is therefore important that all the information contained in the final email is read.
MIAL may send an SMS reminder prior to the course, event or activity, where a mobile number has been provided with the registration.
Fees and charges for all MIAL courses, events and activities are GST inclusive, unless otherwise indicated.
Terms of payment and invoicing
Payment is required at the time of booking to confirm registration. A tax invoice will be generated and sent to the email address provided at the time of the booking.
Payment is to be made online by credit card at the time of booking. MIAL accepts Visa, Mastercard and American Express online. If another method of payment is preferred, then please email email@example.com to discuss.
Cancellation, Transfer and Substitution Policy
MIAL requires notice of cancellation in writing, at least seven (7) clear business days prior to the course, event or activity date, before a full refund is to be given. MIAL reserves the right to deduct a reasonable administration cost from the refunded amount, such administration cost to not exceed $30.
Transfers for courses
Bookings and payments already made for specific courses can be transferred to a later date for the same course, provided notice is given at least seven (7) clear business days prior to the original course date.
Where notice of transfer is provided less than seven (7) clear business days prior to the course date, a late transfer fee will be charged at the rate of 25% of the course fee. The late transfer fee may be waived at the discretion of MIAL.
Transfers for events and activities
Bookings and payments already made for specific events or activities, cannot be transferred to alternative courses, events or activities. It is possible however to arrange a substitute registrant with MIAL.
If a registrant is unable to attend a course, event or activity, the registration can be transferred to another person, no later than one (1) clear business day prior to the course, event or activity. To do this, notify MIAL by email including details of the current person booked in, as well as the replacement attendee’s name, title, organisation/department, email address and mobile number.
MIAL will endeavour to accommodate special dietary requirements for late substitute registrants, but unfortunately this cannot be guaranteed.
There is no refund for non-attendance at a course, event or activity on the day.
MIAL Cancellation – Postponement – Alternation
MIAL reserves the right to cancel or postpone a scheduled course, event or activity to an alternative date. Every attempt will be made to organise a suitable alternative date. If a suitable alternative date cannot be agreed, the fee will be refunded in full.
MIAL reserves the right, at any time, to alter a course, event, activity or presenter as it deems necessary and without providing notice.
Visits to third parties may be cancelled with no notice due to matters outside of MIAL’s control. In such circumstances MIAL will endeavour to make alternative arrangements, however, cannot guarantee such arrangements will be possible.
The delivery formats used by MIAL are stated on the MIAL website for each scheduled course, event or activity. These formats may include in-person, online, or hybrid delivery.
Where a course, event or activity is listed for in-person or hybrid delivery and COVID lockdown restrictions prevent it from being delivered in-person, MIAL reserves the right at any time to change to an online delivery format. This includes instances where density limits may apply.
