These general conditions of sale apply to all training services undertaken by CT Mer Forte   on behalf of a Customer. The fact of registering or placing an order implies the Customer's full and unreserved acceptance of these general conditions of sale. These general conditions of sale prevail over any other document of the Customer, and in particular over all the general conditions of purchase of the Customer.


Financial conditions, regulations and terms of payment

All prices are indicated in euros and excluding taxes. They must be increased by VAT at the rate in force.

The payment of the price of the training is to be made at the end of the training, upon receipt of invoice, in cash, without discount to the order of CT Mer Forte. In the event of a long journey, intermediate invoicing may be incurred.

Any sum not paid on the due date automatically and without prior notice entails the application of penalties of an amount equal to one and a half times the legal interest rate. CT Mer Forte shall have the option of obtaining settlement by litigation at the Customer's expense without prejudice to any other damages that may be due to CT Mer Forte.

In the event of payment by the OPCA on which the Client depends, it is the Client's responsibility to make his request for reimbursement before the start of the training. The financing agreement must be communicated at the time of registration and on the copy of the estimate that the Customer returns duly informed, dated, stamped, signed and marked with the words "Good for agreement" to CT Mer Forte. In the event of partial coverage by the OPCA, the difference will be invoiced directly by CT Mer Forte to the Customer. If the Client's support agreement does not reach Mer Forte   at the latest one working day before the start of the training, CT Mer Forte reserves the right to refuse entry into training of the Trainee or to invoice the totality of the training costs to the Client.
In exceptional circumstances, payment in installments may be made. In any case, its modalities must have been formalized before the start of the training.


Withdrawal and replacement of a participant

In the event of a withdrawal notified by the Customer to Mer Forte at least 7 days before the start of the training, CT Mer Forte   offers the Customer the possibility:

- to postpone the registration of the Trainee for a subsequent training, duly scheduled in the catalog of CT Mer Forte, and after possible agreement of the OPCA,

- to replace the Intern prevented by another participant having the same profile and the same training needs, subject to the possible agreement of the OPCA. 


Cancellation, absence or interruption of training

Any module started is due in full and will be invoiced to the Client by Mer Forte. In the event of absence, interruption or cancellation, CT Mer Forte's invoicing will distinguish between the price corresponding to the days actually attended by the Trainee and the sums due for the absences or interruption of the training. It is reminded that the sums due by the Client in this respect cannot be attributed by the Client to his obligation to participate in continuing professional training or be the subject of a request for reimbursement by an OPCA.

In this case, the Customer undertakes to pay the sums which would remain at his expense directly to CT Mer Forte.

On the other hand, in the event of cancellation of the training by the Customer, CT Mer Forte reserves the right to invoice the Customer for cancellation costs calculated as follows:

- if the cancellation occurs more than 15 working days before the start of the training: no cancellation fees

- if the cancellation occurs between 15 days and 7 working days before the start of the training: the cancellation costs are equal to 50% of the price excluding tax of the training

- if the cancellation occurs less than 7 working days before the start of the training: the cancellation costs are equal to 100% of the price excluding tax of the training
