Right of cancellation
Enrolment in online courses is binding once the purchase has been confirmed by enrolling on the seller’s website. When purchasing online courses with BIKS AS, the Norwegian Cancellation Act applies in its entirety. The buyer has a 14-day full right of return. Upon enrolment, a username and password will be sent for login to the online course, six days before the course commences. The right of cancellation expires when the buyer chooses to use the online course, i.e., upon initial login to the online course. The buyer must personally cover the return costs, and the item must be undamaged. The notice from the buyer to the seller on invoking the right of cancellation should, for evidential reasons, be in writing (right of cancellation form, e-mail, or letter), and it must contain information about how the buyer will return the product to the seller. When invoking the right of cancellation, the product must be returned to the seller within a reasonable period of time. The Seller is obliged to refund the full purchase price to the Buyer within 14 days from the day the Seller receives the product or collection note or the product is made available to the Seller. Upon enrolment, the buyer is immediately sent a right of right of cancellation form.
An invoice fee of NOK 100 is added in case of payment using invoice. The general due date is 14 days. There is no invoice fee for purchases made using a card. The prices stated in the online shop include shipping and valued added tax. An order confirmation is displayed on the screen, as well as automatically sent by e-mail immediately to the buyer. The buyer is urged to check if it is correct. In case of errors, the buyer should contact the seller as soon as possible.
The product is considered delivered when the username and password for personal login are received. This is sent by e-mail six days before the course commences. Payment by VISA/MasterCard is therefore charged immediately. (Invoices are also normally issued immediately, with a 14-day due date.) The courses are designed for use on PC/Mac and can also be used on tablets and mobile phones. BIKS AS strives to ensure that the online courses work as well as possible on as many platforms as possible, at all times. However, browsers and operating systems are updated frequently, entailing that some minor errors may occur for periods before we can rectify the errors.
The Buyer is urged to check that the package of materials is in accordance with the order, and whether it has been damaged or if it is otherwise defective. In the event of defects in the contents/complaints regarding the package of materials, notice must be given to the seller as soon as possible, and no later than two months after the package is received. The notice should be in writing. General complaints regarding the product are applicable two years from the purchase date. If the product is paid for by credit card, the buyer may also choose to complain and send claims directly to the credit provider (the credit card company).
The buyer of the online course is assigned a username and password for personal login. The password for the online course is strictly personal and it is not permitted to share user/password with others. In case of multiple individuals in the same household, several accesses must be ordered. A discount will then be applied. Misuse may result in suspension from the course without any compensation. It is illegal to copy from the course. Displays of animations, videos or the course in general to others without approval will result in reporting to the police.
Access, network problems, exam registration
The buyer is given access to the course for a specified period which is selected at the time of purchase. Access to the online course is effective from the date of purchase. The e-learning course must be commenced within four months of the registered order and will be available for seven weeks after start-up. The Seller is not liable for circumstances beyond the Seller's control, such as network problems and the like.

Buyer's rights in the event of defects

The seller may also, depending on the circumstances, charge interest in the event of late payment, collection fees and fees for non-prepaid uncollected products.
