  • Sponsors: If your participation in a Course is being paid for by a third party, such as a sponsor or your employer (“sponsor”), then you are still bound by all provisions in these Terms (including payment provisions), however we may enter into a separate agreement with your sponsor to govern payment for and other terms related to the Course on your behalf, as well as to govern your sponsor’s receipt of certain information about your completion of the Course (“Sponsor Terms and Conditions”). Your ability to cancel or postpone your participation in a Course, as well as your sponsor’s eligibility for a refund of the Course fee, may be governed by the applicable Sponsor Terms and Conditions, and for the avoidance of doubt, Sponsor Terms and Conditions may supersede these Terms if agreed to between The Climate School and your Sponsor.
