11.  Payment Terms

Purchase.  NCTI agrees to sell to you and you agrees to purchase from NCTI the Offerings for the purchase price set forth together with all shipping charges.

Sales Tax.  Sales tax will be billed according to IRS and State nexus sales & use tax guidelines. Organizations who believe they are exempt must provide documentation to NCTI to receive exemption status. NCTI uses a third party to validate and compute tax calculations.

Payment.  All orders must be paid by (1) governmental purchase order, (2) cashier’s check with order, or (3) credit card.

Late Payment.  A late payment charge of 1 ½ percent per month, which is equivalent to an annual percentage rate of 18 percent, will be added to any balance remaining due on all accounts over 30 days old (a minimum charge of $2.50 per month). To avoid this late payment charge, please pay invoice within the payment terms listed above. The late payment charges will be sent on a semi-monthly basis.

Return and Exchange Policy.  NCTI accepts the return or exchange of a purchased material if it is returned to NCTI within 30 days of our original shipment date. The returned or exchanged material must remain unused, undamaged and in perfect (new) condition. If the returned or exchanged material has been used or damaged, and/or it is past 30 days of purchase, we will not accept the material for any refund or exchange. If there is a refund, a restocking fee of 25% will be charged to cover our handling, merchant account fees, restocking and labor. Buyer is responsible for all shipping charges associated with the return of the purchased material.

Please contact a customer service representative for a Return Goods Authorization Number at 800-622-1644 x 5502 or email us at info@ncti.org.

Delivery.  Purchased Offerings shall be delivered you at the shipping address set forth by you or to NCTI at 319 E. McDowell Road, Suite 200, Phoenix, Arizona 85004-1539 for pickup by you. You agrees to pay all freight charges incurred from shipping point. Material shall generally be shipped via UPS Ground; provided, however, that NCTI may deliver by any mode of shipping, mailing, or delivery that it deems appropriate in its sole discretion.

Risk of Loss or Damage.  Responsibility for purchased Offerings shall pass to you upon payment of the purchase price in full. Risk of loss for the Offerings shall pass to you upon delivery to the shipping or mailing company if the purchased material is shipped, mailed, or delivered to you by a company other than NCTI. Shipments are automatically protected against loss or damage up to $100. Additional coverage per package is available upon request. The charge for each additional $100 insured value or fraction thereof is $.35.

12.  Workshops.

Certification. Participants are certified by an instructor at the conclusion of a workshop. Instructors retain the right to withhold certification if they feel that a participant has not met the requirements necessary for certification.

Cancellation Policy. If you are unable to attend a workshop after registering, you may send a substitute with no penalty. Cancellations received less than 21 days before the scheduled workshop are subject to a fee equal to 25% of the total amount paid. NCTI reserves the right to cancel a workshop training for any reason up to 21 days prior to the scheduled date. Please keep this in mind when making travel arrangements.

NCTI reserves the right to cancel a workshop at any time due to weather, acts of God, or acts of terrorism. NCTI will not be responsible for any costs associated with prearranged travel. Multiple registrations by same organization, agency, or individual will be held to the same policy as single registrations by individuals.

Workshop Fee and Payment. The participant fee includes workshop and training materials. Payment can be made by either credit card or governmental purchase order. If payment is made by purchase order, a copy of the purchase order must be provided to NCTI prior to attending the workshop.

Volume Discounts. Volume discounts are available based upon multiple registrations from the same organization, and are determined by a volume discount tier. The amount due to NCTI is based on the number of participants from the same organization who actually attend the workshop, and not based on the original amount of participants committed to attend prior to the workshop. Please note that this means additional funds may be due to NCTI if fewer participants attend a workshop than those originally committed to attend, and that reduction of participants results in a change in discount tier.
