The Company agrees to offer Captivated by the Rockies and a private online community of learning to You. (“Retreat”). As a condition of participating in the Retreat, you agree to be bound by and abide by all policies and procedures set out in this Agreement, including those incorporated by reference.
Nature of The Relationship
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership, joint venture, employment, or agency relationship. The Company agrees only to provide the Client with access to the Retreat, which provides education and information. The information contained in the Retreat, including any interactions with the instructors, is not intended as, and shall not be understood or construed as, professional advice.
In consideration of Your access to the Retreat, you agree to pay the following fees.
Deposit & Payment: Deposit made is considered partial payment toward the retreat's cost and will hold your spot. Deposits are non-refundable unless another person fills your spot. Only after your spot is filled can the deposit be refunded minus an administration fee ($125 CAD), or you may choose to use the full deposit towards a future retreat if the spot you put on hold is filled.
If you fail to submit the final registration balance fees by the required date, specified at your time of purchase, you will forfeit your spot, and the retreat facilitator is free to open that spot to the public. Your deposit will not be refunded in such a circumstance.
Once your full payment has been processed, it is non-refundable. However, if you can fill the spot, your payment will be refunded minus an administration fee ($250 CAD).
If a refund is requested monies will be processed by an external payment processor. The Company cannot control payment refund processing speed.
If you become ill due to COVID-19 and cannot attend the retreat, you must provide medical proof of illness. A refund will be issued minus facilitator costs (any room charges that may occur due to withdrawal from the retreat and administration charges ($250 CAD).
Gina Yeo Photography is participating in the Restriction Exemption Program which requires all retreat participants to show proof of full vaccination for COVID-19 or a government-approved negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours of participation.
If You become ill and cannot attend the retreat, you must provide medical proof of illness. A refund will be issued minus facilitator costs (any room charges that may occur due to withdrawal from the retreat and administration charges ($250 CAD).
*Refund administration fees may change without notice based on current transaction rates.
Retreat Cancellation Clause
If circumstances arise due to the retreat being unable to run, such as low enrollment, facilitator illness, COVID-19 health pandemic restrictions set by governing authorities, facilitator casualty, an act of God or any other cause beyond the retreat facilitator’s control, all tuition paid, including the deposit, will be returned, with no further liability.
Additional money spent on travel preparation will not fall under the Company's responsibility. Travel insurance is strongly recommended. Delays or additional expenses created by weather, illness, etc., are the responsibility of You.
Should it be necessary to cancel the workshop due to underbooking, a full refund will be provided. Refunds will occur 30 days before the scheduled retreat date. After that point, only severe and unforeseen circumstances will cancel the retreat.
The Company carries business liability insurance, and the proof is available by request.
You will receive and be required to sign an acknowledgement of risks. This will be due with the final payment. Also, injury or accident impacting oneself, theft or damage to photographic or other equipment is not the Company's responsibility.

Except as otherwise outlined in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement shall operate or be construed as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
The Company shall not be liable or responsible to You, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Company including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion, or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot, or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lock-outs, strikes or other labour disputes (whether or not relating to either party's workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.
