Seasonal courses

You have decided to enrol in the selected Seasonal Course, organized by the Association “Ente per le Arti Applicate alla Moda ed al Costume”, having its registered office at Villa Favard, Via Curtatone, 1, 50123 – Firenze (hereinafter also referred to as “Polimoda”), which will take place in the selected dates with weekly attendance from Monday to Saturday.

In any case, Polimoda’s Management reserves the right to make, at any time, any possible necessary change to the educational, organizational and logistic manners of the chosen Course. It is also intended since now that Polimoda reserves also the right to change the start/end date of the Seasonal Course at its own discretion.

You declare to have read and examined prior to purchase the Course description in which are clearly shown the main features of the Course, the schedule, the price and the payment methods/deadlines.

The course will only be confirmed if the minimum number of students deemed appropriate by the competent Board of Polimoda is reached; should enrolments not reach the minimum number, the entire tuition fee will be promptly reimbursed to the student. No further claim can be made apart from reimbursement of the entire fee.

The tuition fee due payment must be made according to the conditions and deadlines provided. All fees must be paid in euros. All bank charges and commission belong to the student. The tuition fees include educational service, teaching equipment, lecture notes.

The current contract is considered signed as soon as Polimoda knows the adhesion of the student to the Seasonal Course, expressed through his/her online enrolment, as well as from the reception of the payment which, in case of credit card will be carried out immediately, in case of Bank transfer as soon as Polimoda will receive the sum due.

It is intended that the guarantee of the success of the payment within the relevant deadlines, made by the same, has an essential and relevant character, so that student’s failure to pay in terms will lead to the immediate termination by law of the contract. In the event that the payment is not successful, actually the order shall be considered dissolved according to and for the purposes of art. 1456 c.c. the student shall be immediately informed by email of the dissolution of the contract and the consequent cancellation of the order.

In order to ensure the security of the payments made on the website and to prevent any fraud, Polimoda reserves the right to ask the student, in case of payment by credit card in which the holder of the order is different from the card’s holder, to provide the identity card of the latter. The document must be currently valid. In the same request the deadline within which the document has to arrive at Polimoda will be specified. In any case, this term shall not exceed 5 working days starting from the reception of the Polimoda’s request. Pending the requested document, the order shall be suspended. The student has to send the requested documents within the mentioned term.

In the event that Polimoda does not receive the credit card’s holder identity card by the term indicated in the Polimoda’s request or receives expired or invalid documents, the contract shall be resolved by law in accordance with and for the purposes of art. 1456 c.c. and the order consequently deleted, except for Polimoda’s right to restore any damages it may suffer due to the student’s non-compliance behavior. The solve of the contract, which shall be notified to the student by e-mail within and not more than 5 working days after the expiration of the deadline for sending the documents requested by Polimoda, shall provoke the cancellation of the order, with a refund of the amount due, without undue delay and in any case, within 15 working days from the termination of the contract. Whereas, the student shall be able to use the Course, if Polimoda receives the required documentation by the indicated term.

It is declared, since now, that if wire transfer payment is chosen, Polimoda uses BNL’s secure payment which uses the SSL security protocol. The confidential credit card’s details (card number, holder, expiration date, security code) are encrypted and transmitted directly to the payment manager without passing through the servers which Polimoda uses. Polimoda does not have access and neither store the credit card data used by the student for the payment of the Course.

For any amount, 50% of the tuition fee will be reimbursed to the student in case of withdrawal notified in writing to Polimoda, by registered communication, at least 30 days prior to the commencement of the course. No refund will be made if withdrawal is notified less than 30 days before commencement of the course. Notice of withdrawal received from non-EU students will be promptly forwarded to the Italian Consulate/Embassy which may have issued a study visa on the basis of the Polimoda enrolment certification.

If requested, the commercial invoice shall be issued. A commercial invoice shall be sent to the student by e-mail. For the invoice’s issue, the information provided by the student through the form shall be taken as authentic. The student undertakes to hold Polimoda indemnified and harmless of any damages, liability obligation and/or sanction may be derived from the same and/or be enforced if such information is not accurate and/or does not correspond to the truth. No change in the invoice shall be possible after the issue of the invoice.

Participation in the courses involves the strict observance of the Polimoda Student Regulations for Seasonal Courses, also published on the website www.polimoda.com, of which the student declares to have understood. Compliance with the disciplinary regulation is an essential clause of the contract between the enrolled and Polimoda. Regular class attendance is strongly recommended. The final certificate of attendance will be issued solely to students who have attended at least the 80% of the total hours of the course. Students must respect the equipment and school facilities. The Management reserves the right to expel the student who has been guilty of a serious disciplinary violation and to claim compensation for any damages caused.

It is intended that the obligations relating to compliance with the Student’s Regulation are essential and relevant, so that the student’s failure to comply with one of the conditions required by it, will cause the immediate termination of the contract.

The student is required to promptly anticipate via e-mail to counseling@polimoda.com a signed copy of the Polimoda Enrolment Contract to be downloaded within the online application process.

It is similarly understood that, no later than the first day of the course, the student will have to deliver to the Polimoda Information and Orientation Office paper copies of the Polimoda Enrolment Contract and the Student Regulations to be downloaded within the online application process, duly signed, in the awareness that failure to do so will prevent the undersigned from attending the course.

Contractual relations between Polimoda and the students are ruled only by 1) Terms & Conditions and the correspondent Regulations and 2) by the Italian law that the parties declare to choose and accept. For any dispute regarding this contract which may arise between Polimoda and the student, jurisdiction shall exclusively be of Italian Courts and the venue of Florence shall exclusively be competent.

We remind you that in order to attend study programmes in Italy, some Non-EU Citizens are required to apply for a student visa by submitting certification of enrolment (in Italian) to the Italian Embassy/Consulate of their home country. This certificate will be issued by Polimoda and sent to you upon confirmation of your payment.
