16. Mentorship Program
Whiise Mentorship Program serves as an online platform which provides connectivity to users seeking information and advice (the “Participants”) with users providing it (the “Mentors”).
16.1 The hereby called “Mentor” is obliged to deliver to the best of their ability their knowledge and insight to the “Participant” in their area of expertise.
16.2 The hereby called “Participant” is obliged to always be respectful of the “Mentor” and prepare for the session to the best of their ability by determining what they would like to be covered (e.g. have specific topics and/or questions ready to ask their Mentor before the start of the session).
16.3 Mentoring sessions are all recorded for quality assurance and training purposes.
16.4 No confidential information should be disclosed by either party during the session. Whiise is not responsible for any release of information by either party shared between the Participant or Mentor during or after the session.
16.5 If the session does not occur or does not meet your expectations, you have 48-hours to file a complaint. After 48-hours from the session’s end-time, no complaints will be accepted and no refunds will be provided.
16.6 Session time is counted from the moment the session is scheduled to start.
16.7 If the Participant is late to a session, the Mentor is by no means obliged to extend the session to compensate for the time lost; however, if the Mentor is willing and able they are permitted to offer additional time should they so choose. This will be decided on a case-by-case basis between each Participant and each Mentor in every instance in which it occurs.
16.8 If the Mentor is late, they are responsible for compensating the Participant with the time lost. This can be done either by extending the session by the amount of time lost, rescheduling the entire session, or rescheduling the time owed to the Participant at the Participant’s convenience. How this time will be compensated will be decided on a case-by-case basis between each Mentor and each Participant in every instance in which it occurs.
16.9 If a Participant does not receive the full session time he/she paid for due to circumstances he/she does not have an influence on or control over, the participant is permitted to request a partial-refund from Whiise for the amount of time that was lost during the session (e.g. Mentor is late, Mentor does not show up, or Mentor has to leave early). Partial-refunds will be offered only for the amount of time lost during a session.
16.10 The participant is obliged to provide themselves with necessarily tools (e.g. webcam and stable internet connection) prior to the session.
16.11 Whiise is not responsible for time lost due to unpreparedness, tardiness or internet connectivity issues.
16.12 Whiise will hold the payment for the mentoring session for 72-hours after the session concludes. If a session was successful, the payment will be processed 72-hours after the session’s end-time. If the Participant has filed a complaint, the Mentor will be notified and funds will be held until the problem is resolved. Upon resolution, the funds will be processed or refunded, in full or partially, according to the decision made by Whiise with fairness and to the best of their ability at the time in which the complaint is received.
17. Force Majeure
Whiise shall not be held responsible for any delay or failure in performance of its obligations hereunder to the extent such delay or failure is caused by fire, flood, strike, civil, governmental or military authority, acts of God, acts of terrorism, acts of war, epidemics or acute outbreaks of communicable disease, the availability of the location for the Masterclass or other similar causes beyond its reasonable control.
18. Governing law
These Terms shall be governed by English Law and your hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
