Terms and conditions
Before enrolling in a course, please read carefully Mitoyo’s terms and conditions.
The students that enroll in Mitoyo’s courses are accepting the terms and conditions of this academy.
All of our lessons and courses are subject to the following terms and conditions.
The student must inform the center any medical situation that doesn’t allow him or her to participate in the course at the time of enrollment.
If the student is forced to interrupt the course for medical reasons not shared beforehand, they won’t have a right to a refund of the course’s amount.
If on the first day of class the student hasn’t paid the total of the course, Mitoyo reserves the right to cancel the student’s classes. Mitoyo reserves the right to accept students that have 12 years or less. In the case of serious disciplinary problems, misbehavior or violation of the Spanish law, the student will be expelled from the school without a right to a refund.
All the costs that Mitoyo has had to pay caused by the previously mentioned incidents and that have caused damages to a third person will be paid by the student that won’t have a right to a later claim.
The student attests that all personal information given by the registration form, or any other way, at the time of enrollment is accurate and authentic and that the identity hasn’t been forged.
The student must inform Mitoyo about any medical condition that doesn’t let him or her attend the course regularly or that could affect other students.
The student will behave in an appropriate and respectful manner to both teachers and any other person associated with Mitoyo. Not complying with this rule will result in expulsion and the loss of the money for the course and registration.
The class times may be subject to change.
Mitoyo reserves the right to change the student to a different level or class if the teacher considers that the level to which he or she enrolled in isn’t the appropriate one.
The student will arrive on time for the classes. If the student can’t attend a class, they must notify the school in advance.
At the end of the level, the students will receive a certificate determining the level reached. To receive this document, the students must have attended over 80% of the classes during the course and passed the final level test.
The students will pass a level test before the course in the case that their level is higher than the absolute beginner. Any level and/or time schedule change are subject to the approval of Mitoyo and the availability of the courses. For the final level test, one of our teachers will be available for when the student comes to do an oral test and will decide the level with the student as well as the class assigned.
COURSE ATTENDANCE AND KEEPING UP WITH THE GROUP
It’s the student’s responsibility to attend every class and take advantage of the course. If it isn’t done (it will be verified by tests and the teachers’ evaluation) or if you he or she doesn’t attend at least 80% of the course, Mitoyo reserves the right to change the student from the group and level if necessary. If the student needs a change in schedule because of reasons beyond his control, it will be made in exceptional cases with the previous consent of Mitoyo. If you already count with Mitoyo’s consent, there must be a group of the appropriate level and the desired schedule, as long as there are free spots. If this course costs more and lasts more/longer, the difference must be paid. If the cost and time of the new course is inferior, the difference won’t be refunded.
REFUNDS AND CANCELLATION
If the course is cancelled before the students start, the refund will only be accepted if it is in written form (via email to email@example.com), the cancellations made by phone won’t be accepted.
The participation on the regular courses either for new or old students are subject to a prior deposit of an amount that counts as reservation. At a later time, once the course starts, this reservation will become the Mitoyo registration if the person interested is a new student or it will be subtracted if it’s an old student.
This amount is 30€ for new courses and 50€ for the courses that continue.
If the cancelation is made 15 days before the start of the course, the reservation and the amount of the course can be refunded or can be kept for future courses.
Regarding the reservation::
- In the case of new courses, the reservation won’t be refunded, nor lost; it will be deducted directly from the tuition. (It won’t be necessary to pay the amount of the tuition in the future, but you must pay an amount of 30€ as reservation for the following courses. This amount will be deducted from the course’ price. There isn’t an expiration date to use the tuition.)
- In the case that the course continues the 50% will be returned if it is cancelled a week in advance. With less than a week, the total amount will be lost.
About the price of the course
- In the case of new groups, the amount of the course won’t be returned under no circumstances if the course has already been confirmed.
- In the case of groups that continue, the 50% of the amount will be returned if the cancelation is made with more than a week before. Under no circumstance the amount will be refunded with less than a week’s notice.
If the new group is confirmed with a week or less than a week’s notice, the total amount of the reservation and the price of the course must be paid before the deadline stated by email. After making the payment, in the case that the interested wants to cancel the spot, the amount of the course won’t be refunded, and the conditions previously mentioned will be applied to make a reservation.
In the case that the course is cancelled, the amount of the course and the reservation will be fully refunded, and it is possible to make a reservation for future courses. Alternative options will be offered to start other courses with different times or private classes.
In the case that the student can’t continue to attend class and had previously chosen fractioned payment for the course and had to abandon the course for any reason, said abandonment doesn’t exempt the full payment of the course. The payment must be made, despite the absence, of the amount remaining from the course.
CHANGES AND REFUNDS FROM PRIVATE CLASSES
What if I can’t attend my private class?
In this case, don’t hesitate to contact us as soon as possible informing us that you can’t make it. The private classes are very flexible, but there are always restrictions. If you inform us before 14:00 of the day before, there won’t be a problem to change the class to another day*. Otherwise, if you inform us after 14:00 of the previous day, even if the personal or external reasons, it will be counted as follows:
For 1h of class, the class will be lost.
For 1h and 30m, only 1 hour will be lost.
For 2h of class, 1h will be lost.
For 3h of class, 1h and 30 minutes will be lost.
For 4h of class, 2h will be lost.
*In Mitoyo it is possible to change the dates of the class with no impact with a week’s notice to every class. However, it is not possible to cancel more than 2 classes a month with less than a week’s notice as the teachers manage their time for the students. That’s why we request that the students are committed when they ask private classes from one week to the next.
What if my private classes are shared with more people?
In this case there is a 50% discount for the second person that signs up for private classes. When applying the discount, the following situations may occur:
- If one of the students doesn’t go to the class and doesn’t inform with enough time in advance, he will have to pay the proportional share as the other student has attended the class. If both of them cancel the class, the usual conditions of private classes will be applied.
- If one of the students has to miss the class and informs Mitoyo before 14:00 of the previous day, but the second student wants to attend the class, the student has to pay the proportional share.
The previously proportional share mentioned is calculated as follows:
- Voucher of 10h………..8€
- Voucher of 20h………..7€
- Voucher of 30h………..7€
For the reservation of the course, it is required to pay in advance 30€ for a reservation of a spot. Those 30€ will become the tuition at the start of the course or they will be deducted from the courses’ price depending on the case. The price of the course can be divided and has to be paid at least a week before the start of the course. If the full payment isn’t made, Mitoyo can cancel the reserved course and the student won’t have any right to a refund. It is necessary that the student writes name, surname and MITOYO in all of the bank transactions.
In no case choosing the fractioned payment exempts from paying the full amount of the course.
Personal cheques will not be accepted.
The payment of the course can be made the following ways:
If you decide to pay by cash, you must pay the full amount or first payment before the first day of class at the school’s secretary.
Card payment: (Credit card / Visa / MasterCard)
If you decide to make the payment by bank transfer, the payment of the course must be transferred, at least, a week before the start of the course. On the first day of class you must submit the receipt of the transfer at the school’s office.
The bank data is the following:
Owner: Asia Bole S.L
Bank: La Caixa
*The student has to write his name and surname and “Mitoyo” on the transfer concept and has to have in mind possible bank commissions. Mitoyo must receive the full payment and isn’t responsible of paying bank commissions.
The student that is registered to a course with us can obtain up to a 5% discount if he or she registers in a second course. They must be registered in a course to be eligible for this discount. The percentage will be calculated on the course of less value, but it can be deducted of the price of the course with more value.
If one of the members of your family enrolls with you, they can receive a 5% discount at the moment of making the tuition.
The discounts that aren’t requested at the moment of making the enrollment can’t be claimed after.
The discounts can’t be combined and are applied on the second payment in the case that you have chosen instalment payments.
Mitoyo isn’t required to refund money or to compensate missed classes due to national, regional or local holidays. The center will be closed during the public holidays set by Madrid.
