Workshop sessions begin and finish rigorously on schedule, and the tardiness of one or more participants does not in any way open the right to an extension of the session.
When the workshop participants are minors, their parents, or a person duly identified with the Management of Les Ingéniaux, are required to accompany and pick up the participant at the agreed times.
Minors over the age of 12, if authorized in written form by their parents or legal representatives, may leave the premises of the workshop on their own. In this case, parents or legal representatives must provide to th management of Les Ingéniaux a completed form indicating this authorization. If this authorization is issued, Les Ingéniaux absolve themselves of any responsibility for the custody of the minor, from the moment the minor leaves the premises where the workshop took place.
If the minor has to wait for a person to pick him up, in case of repeated tardiness, Les Ingéniaux reserve the right to charge the parent or legal representative an amount equivalent to the costs incurred by this delay, including compensation from the facilitator, regardless of the reason for the delay.
Behaviour and Discipline
In the case of persistent behaviour by a participant that adversely impairs the proper conduct of the workshop sessions, Les Ingéniaux, after an initial warning that would have remained ineffective, reserve the right to exclude the participant for a temporary or permanent period. The enrollment fee, in this case, will remain entirely due to Les Ingéniaux, as the exclusion for disciplinary reasons does not entitle to any refund.
Disciplinary reasons include, but are not limited to, voluntary degradation or theft of the tools, computers or equipment used for the workshop; behaviour that may disrupt the activities of other participants; disrespectful or insulting behaviour towards facilitators, staff of Les Ingéniaux,or to the other participants.
Les Ingéniaux are allowed, subject to written agreement (from the participant himself, or parents or legal representatives in the case of minor participants), to photograph or film the participants during the workshops, as part of their group activities, for the sole purpose of advertising on communication media (paper, Internet, etc.) of Les Ingéniaux.
