Terms and Conditions Relating to our Live Course Deliveries
The Course Organiser
The live MRI in Practice course is presented internationally in 22 countries. The presenters are Catherine Westbrook and John Talbot (hereafter identified as the presenters).
In most cases Cathy and John are contracted to present the course by a local course organiser who administers the course, takes payments from delegates and is usually registered for VAT etc. In some cases the organiser may be a registered company involved in health, education or both.
All requests for information relating to the administration of the courses (with the exception of the Amsterdam course) including payments, refunds etc should be directed to the relevant course organiser. This can be done by using the on-line info request forms relating to each course.
The Amsterdam course is organised directly by www.mrieducation.com and all enquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Intellectual Property and Copyright Issues
The names MRI in Practice, and MRI in Practice / The Course are copyright 1992-present date Blackwell Science (Wiley Books) & Catherine Westbrook.
All text and graphics in this web site and in the course materials are copyright (2009-present date) Blackwell Science (Wiley Books) and John Talbot.
Audio and video recording of the live course content is strictly prohibited including (but not limited to) the use of mobile phones, iPods, iPads, tablet PCs, voice recorders, digital cameras and any type of computer. The presenters reserve the right to ask individual delegates to leave the lecture room in the event of them using any type of mobile electronic equipment. Lectures will not commence if there are any electronic items in evidence at the beginning of each session. The presenters will pause presentations in the event that any portable electronic device appears to be in use during a presentation. We have had to introduce these rules following attempts to make illegal video copies of the course materials and they are strictly enforced.
Course pricing may vary by country and by venue and is set by the individual organisers (as defined in paragraph 1). This will reflect the venue cost, the level of sponsorship and transport costs.
MRI in Practice (The Book) may be offered inclusive of the course fee in certain venues. Please check with the course organiser at the time of application. The course fee NEVER includes accommodation or travel.
For your peace of mind, all payments processed directly from www.mrieducation.com are arranged through Stripe. Stripe provide a secure, fraud-protected, banking infrastructure for on-line payments. Stripe payments may not be available from your international location.
Visa Applications for International Courses
www.mrieducation.com are unable to provide letters of invitation for visa applicants. This is because we are based in the UK and are therefore not in a position to sponsor or support visa applications in countries other than the UK.
The course has been running continuously for over 25 years and cancellations are rare (only on three occasions to date). In the unlikely event of a course cancellation please note that the presenters and course organisers (as defined in paragraph 1) are not responsible for reimbursing anything other than the registration fee (where applicable) or the deposit (where applicable). Course organisers are not responsible for the reimbursement of any additional costs incurred by delegates in connection to their attendance at the course (for example travel costs or accommodation costs) We therefore strongly advise delegates who are travelling to the host city and staying in the venue hotel (or elsewhere) to take out travel insurance to cover any lost expenditure.
The course materials are updated constantly, to keep pace with changes within the field of MRI and to take advantage of the latest presentation technology and as such the course content may vary over time. The programme provided on this web site and in our promotional materials is for guidance only and we reserve the right to alter the timing and running order of the lectures to meet the requirements of the individual organiser and the venue.
The U.K.'s amended Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulations (PECR) Act 2011 was brought into force on May 26th, 2011.
