Matrix+ Online Terms and Conditions

 

Matrix On Campus Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions are to be agreed by parents or guardians when they accept an offer of an enrolment for a student at Matrix Education for ‘On Campus’ course (“course”). These terms and conditions supersede any prior agreements you may had entered into with us for our services in similar nature.

Capitalised expressions are defined in Schedule 1 to this agreement.

We understand, acknowledge and agree to the following:

 

Fees

1         Once we accept an offer of an enrolment at Matrix, we are committed to one full term for every course in which a student is enrolled and the respective fees are immediately and fully payable.

2         We agree to pay Matrix a one off enrolment fee which is non-refundable.

3         Unless we notify Matrix by the end of a current term to terminate the enrolment for the following term, Matrix will enrol the student for the following term. In such circumstances the student’s enrolment for the following term is automatically confirmed and the respective fees are immediately and fully payable on the next scheduled direct debit date.

4         Matrix may suspend or terminate the enrolment of the student whose fees are in arrears.

5         No credit or refund, either in whole or in part, will be provided if the student is absent due to any reason such as illness, leave, enrolment suspension or termination.

6         If a lesson is postponed or changed by Matrix due to an event (eg, teacher’s illness, natural disaster, power outage, outbreak of contagious disease, pandemic, epidemic, etc) the lesson will be rescheduled or postponed to a later date where possible, or alternatively online learning materials may be provided to substitute the affected lesson. No credit or refund, either in whole or in part, will be provided in this regard.

7         If Matrix resources are lost or missing, we must request for a replacement which will be at the sole discretion of Matrix. A fee will apply if the replacement is issued.

8         Interest on unpaid amounts due and payable to Matrix will apply at 10% per annum.

 

Direct Debit

9         For the fees payable to Matrix, we authorise Matrix to:
a.       Debit from our nominated account (the details of which we provided to you over the phone, or in the Direct Debit Request form),
b.       For an amount that is confirmed in our enrolment confirmation letter and/or tax invoice (sent via email).

10     Matrix may debit or charge us through the Bulk Electronic Clearing System (BECS) and that direct debiting through BECS is not available on all accounts. As such, we must provide a valid credit or debit card to Matrix which will allow direct debiting through BECS.

11     Matrix may contact our financial institution to verify the details of our nominated account.

12     We understand our credit card details provided to Matrix will be securely held with a specialist external service provider, Cloud Payments in their Tier 1 PCI compliant systems. This authorisation is to remain in force until the enrolment is terminated and any outstanding fees are paid in full.

13     It is our responsibility that:

a.       Our account information supplied to Matrix is correct by checking it against a recent statement from our financial institution,

b.       Our account information is always up to date,

c.       Our nominated account can accept direct debits through the BECS,

d.       Sufficient funds are available in the nominated account to meet a payment on its due date,

e.       If we believe a payment has been incorrectly initiated, or there is a discrepancy in a payment amount, we must contact Matrix immediately using the below contact information and notify the issue/s:

16     Refunds may take up to 14 days to appear in our account depending on the financial institution of our nominated account.

17     Credit transfers could take up to 5 days to appear in our Matrix account.

18     Direct debits usually occur on the 8th of each month (for quarterly payers, direct debits occur on the 8th of the first month of each quarter) and depending on the schedule of the lessons, the first lesson date may be after the payment date. If we enrol after 8th of the first month of the quarter (i.e. missed the first scheduled direct debit run) my nominated account will be debited immediately for any amount which is due and it could take up to 5 days to come out of our account.

19     For declined transactions the following procedures and policies will apply:

a.       The enrolment may be suspended until the outstanding fee is paid,

b.       A late fee may apply on each declined transaction,

c.       Without notice, Matrix can attempt to debit the nominated account up to 5 times and the above late fee may apply on each declined transaction,

d.       Matrix is not liable for any dishonour fees charged by our financial institution,

e.       After 5 consecutive unsuccessful direct debit attempts, Matrix can refer the matter to an external debt collector and we are liable for any costs incurred by Matrix as a consequence of covering payment.

20     If our financial institution requests Matrix to disclose our personal information in connection with a claim made to correct/investigate an alleged incorrect or wrongful debit or otherwise as required by law, Matrix may disclose the requested information to our financial institution.
