Description and programmes of the training courses
The contents of the programmes, as they appear on the training data sheets, are provided for information only. The instructor or the person in charge of the training reserves the right to modify them according to the current situation, the level of the participants or the dynamics of the group and the climatic conditions.
The Training Organisation is authorised to subcontract, in part or in full, the performance of the services covered by the contract. All the Client’s obligations arising from this are valid only with regard to the Training Organisation, which remains responsible, with regard to the Client, for all the obligations resulting from this contract.
Obligations and force majeure
In the context of its training services, R3-france is bound by an obligation of means and not of result vis-à-vis its Clients or Trainees.
R3-france cannot be held liable to its Clients or Trainees in the event of non-performance of its obligations resulting from a fortuitous event or force majeure. The following are considered fortuitous or force majeure events, in addition to those usually recognised by case law: illness or accident of a trainer or educational manager, strikes or industrial disputes external to R3-France, natural disasters, fire, interruption of telecommunications, energy supply or transport of any kind, or any other circumstance beyond the reasonable control of R3-France.
Cancellation or abandonment of training
Unless otherwise specified in the training agreements or contracts, the conditions for cancellation by the Customer or Trainee are as follows:
In the event of cancellation or abandonment of the training course by the Customer or its agents, less than 10 calendar days before the start of the training course or after the start of the training courses, the Customer shall pay the Service Provider compensation by way of a penalty clause equal to 100% of the remaining training price due.
These indemnities cannot be charged by the employer under its obligation defined by Article L.6331-1 of the French Labour Code, nor can they be the subject of a request for reimbursement or coverage by the OPCA.
Cancellation by the training organisation
R3-France reserves the right to cancel a course in the event of force majeure or to postpone a course with insufficient participants within 8 days of its start date. The client will be informed by e-mail. No compensation will be due for cancellation by R3-France. In the event of definitive cancellation of the course by R3-France, any advance payments received will be reimbursed. In the event of partial performance by R3-France, only the price of the partially performed service will be invoiced for the training.
Intellectual property and copyright
All the presentation sheets, content and teaching aids, whatever their form (paper, electronic, digital, oral, etc.) used by R3-France to provide training or given to Trainees, constitute original works and, as such, are protected by intellectual property and copyright.
As such, the Client and Trainee are prohibited from using, transmitting, reproducing, exploiting or transforming all or part of these documents without the express agreement of R3-france. This prohibition applies, in particular, to any use made by the Client and the Trainee for the purpose of organising or conducting training courses.
