SoTC Terms of Participation

Purchase of, participation in and use of the Safety on Tap Connected Program (the “Program”) is subject to these Terms of Participation.  You (the “Participant” and “you”) are not permitted to purchase, participate or use the Program unless you agree to these Terms of Participation, our Privacy Policy, our Acceptable Use Policy, and our Website Terms of Use Policy.

 

Fidesa Pty Ltd (the “Company” and “we”) is the creator and owner of the Program delivered through our business, Safety on Tap.  The Company agrees to provide Program identified in the online commerce shopping cart accessible from our website www.safetyontap.com (the “Website”).

 

The Company and the Participant are together referred to as Parties and individually as a Party.

 

PARTICIPATION

 

The Company provides the Program, and during the delivery of the Program also provides personalised coaching services, access to and participation in the community made up of other Program Participants, access to educational content, and other services relating to professional development related to work health and safety (the “Services”).  The nature of our Program and Services are such that the coaching and interaction with other Participants may address specific personal projects, business successes, or general conditions in your life or profession.  Depending on progress and outcomes desired, we may engage in value clarification, identifying plans of action, examining modes of operating in life, asking clarifying questions, and making empowering requests or suggestions for action.  Our Program and the delivery of our Services can involve personal and private questioning and answers being provided.  We treat and handle Participant’s personal information in strict confidence with utmost care and concern about your privacy.  The way we collect, handle and disclose your personal information and protect your privacy is set out in our Privacy Policy.

 

The Company grants the Participant the right to use the Program and the Services.  The Participant is not permitted to allow any other person to access the Program or Services and must not sub-license its right to access and use the Program to any third party.  The Participant is strictly prohibited from republishing or redistributing any content or material from Program. Every Participant is obliged to adhere to the confidentiality obligations as set out below.  Whilst we take reasonable steps to manage all participants’ adherence to their confidentiality obligations, we are not responsible and the Participant agrees that we are not liable for breaches of confidentiality by other participants.

 

The Company specifically prohibits access to the Program to Participants who identify their main, or a substantial part, of their employment as a recruitment consultant, or similar occupation which offers employment placement services.  Purchase of the Program by such a Participant will result in immediate termination, as outlined below, of the Participants access to the Program.

 

TERM

 

The Services will be provided by Andrew Barrett, or a representative of the Company (the “Team”) for the duration of the Program, beginning on the date of receipt of login details for the Website after purchase, continuing for a period of one month (for monthly membership) or one year (for annual membership) and in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy (the “Term”).

 

FEES

 

The fee for the Program and Services are as set out in the online commerce shopping cart accessible from the Website.

 

METHODS OF PAYMENT

 

If the Participant elects to pay by monthly or annual instalments, the Participant authorises the Company to charge the Participant’s credit card or debit card or Paypal account or Stripe account or other payment service as indicated by the Participant in accordance with that frequency.

 

All payments must be made on a timely basis, which requires the full amount to be available for each recurring payment . If payments are not made on time (for example, if your credit card expires or is overdawn), the Company reserves the right to prohibit access to the Program until successful payment is made, and charge the Participant interest on the overdue amount at the rate for the time being fixed under section 261(3) of the Supreme Court Civil Rules 2006 (SA) which is currently 7.5% per annum (which interest will accrue daily until the date of actual payment and be compounded at the end of each calendar month).

 

If you have any questions or problems, please let us know by contacting our support team directly. The support desk can be reached at andrew@safetyontap.com.

 

REFUND POLICY

 

We want participants to be satisfied with their purchases but we also want participants to use best efforts to apply all of the strategies in the Program.  We offer a 30-day refund period for purchases, however, in order to qualify for a refund, the Participant must submit proof that the Participant did the work prescribed by the Program and nonetheless it did not work for them.

 

In the event that the Participant decides its purchase was not the right decision, within 30 days of enrolment, contact our support team at andrew@safetyontap.com and request the refund by the 30th day at 11:59 ACST. As per above, the Participant must include work undertaken to date as prescribed by the Program with the request for a refund. If the Participant requests a refund but does not include work undertaken by the 30th day, a refund will not be granted.  For the avoidance of doubt the following work should be submitted:

  • a summary of activities undertaken within Safety on Tap Connected, including completion of the onboarding training and other training courses, notes taken regarding training courses completed, participation in personal coaching, participation through the creation of new posts and replies within the forums;
  • copies of reflective practice notes or journals, as described within the onboarding training
