(ISC)² Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions for (ISC)² Supply of Training Services and Products to Business and Government Customers
These terms and conditions of sale (these “Terms”) as well as those found on the Class Agreement (together, the “Agreement”) are the only terms which govern the sale of (ISC)² Classroom-Based, Online Instructor-Led, and Online Self-Paced training services (individually referred to as a “Class” or collectively the “Services”) and the physical and digital Class materials (the “Products”) by International Information System Security Certification Consortium, Inc. (“(ISC)²”) to the buyer named on the Class Agreement (“Company”). Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if a written contract signed by both parties is in existence covering the sale of the Services covered hereby, the terms and conditions of said contract shall prevail to the extent they are inconsistent with these Terms. Signing the Class Agreement serves as agreement “as is” to these terms and conditions.
The following payment terms are required along with a signed Class Agreement.
Full Payment: FULL PREPAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD, CHECK, OR BANK WIRE TRANSFER.
Purchase Order: CREDIT WILL BE ACCEPTED IN PLACE OF FULL PREPAYMENT WITH AN APPROVED CREDIT APPLICATION AND NET 30 COMPANY PURCHASE ORDER. CREDIT REVIEW AND PURCHASE ORDER REVIEW TAKE FIVE BUSINESS DAYS EACH FOR APPROVAL. TERMS FOR CREDIT CAN CHANGE AT ANY MOMENT BASED ON COMPANY’S CREDIT RATING AND PAYMENT WITH (ISC)².
The process for invoices is as follows:
- Invoice will be created upon order.
- Invoice due within agreed-upon terms (see Payment Terms above)
- All orders are non-refundable.
- Unless agreed otherwise, Classes are not confirmed/Products will not be delivered until full payment or approved purchase order is received.
We ask for any processes related to online invoicing be provided prior to ordering to avoid delays.
Federal & State Agencies: A PURCHASE ORDER WILL BE ACCEPTED IN PLACE OF FULL PAYMENT.
If Company chooses to use a third party to process its order, (ISC)² is not responsible for any additional fees that the third party might charge.

Order Processing and Days for Fulfillment:
Physical Products: (ISC)² will ship physical Products to the location listed in the Class Agreement. Unless expressly agreed to by the parties, (ISC)² shall deliver the physical Products to the location listed in the Class Agreement, using (ISC)²’s or its vendor’s standard methods for packaging and shipping of the Products. Delivery will be made FOB Warehouse.
Digital Products: Digital Products will be released to the e-mails provided to (ISC)².
Days for Fulfillment: For Classroom-Based and Online Instructor-Led training, (ISC)² requires a minimum number of days to process an order. The minimum number of days for fulfillment of an order are set out below:
|Product Order||Minimum Number of Days for Fulfillment of Order|
|Product (physical or digital)||15 calendar days|
|Instructor||30 calendar days|
|Rush Orders - A surcharge of $300 + expedited shipping (2-day or overnight, where applicable) will be invoiced to Company for physical Product orders placed less than 7 business days before materials are needed and for digital Product orders placed less than 2 business days before materials are needed.|
Any time quoted for delivery is an estimate only; provided, however that (ISC)² shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver all Products on or before the requested delivery date. (ISC)² is not liable for or in respect of any loss or damage arising from any delay in filling an order, failure to deliver, or delay in delivery. No delay in the shipment or delivery of any Product relieves Company of its obligations under this Agreement, including accepting delivery of any remaining installment or other orders of Products. Risk of loss and title to Products shipped under any Class Agreement passes to Company upon (ISC)²’s delivery of such Products to the carrier at its warehouse.
Class Cancellation Fee:
For Classroom-Based and Online Instructor-Led training, Company may cancel without cause upon written notice to (ISC)² at any time prior to the start of the Class upon payment of an amount based on the following price:
|Up to 30 calendar days prior to the first day of Class||50% of Class Agreement amount|
|Less than 30 calendar days prior to the first day of Class||100% of Class Agreement amount|
Attendance at (ISC)² Classes are limited to employees of Company. Without prior written consent, resale of an (ISC)² Class to the general public is strictly prohibited and will be cause for immediate termination of the Class without refund to Company.
For Classroom-Based and Online Instructor-Led training, if an emergency prevents the designated instructor from teaching the Class, (ISC)² reserves the right to substitute a qualified replacement. If a suitable replacement cannot be found, (ISC)² reserves the right, with Company ’s consent, to postpone the Class. If postponement is not convenient for Company , (ISC)² may cancel the Class, in which case all payments made by Company will be refunded.
If an emergency prevents a student from attending a Class before the Class begins, Company may designate a substitute. If an emergency causes a student to miss one or more days of a multi-day class, (ISC)² discourages attendance by substitutes, since subsequent days of instruction assume exposure and understanding to preceding material. Each separate person who receives online Products will be treated as an enrolled student, and Company agrees to pay additional fees, if any, due to (ISC)² for additional enrollees.
Copyright and Proprietary Rights License:
Company acknowledges that (ISC)² owns all rights, title and interest in and to all Products, all of which are protected by copyright laws and shall not be shared, copied, recorded or reproduced by Company by any means for any purpose. (ISC)² grants Company’s students a limited license to use the Products in furtherance of the Services contemplated herein and for no other purpose.
Commitment to Quality:
(ISC)² commits that it has the requisite resources, skill, experience and qualifications to perform the Services under this Agreement in a professional and workmanlike manner, in accordance with commercially reasonable industry standards for similar services. To provide the highest quality and consistent classroom experience, we ask our companies to follow through with the following items:
- Do not provide any special add-on materials, sessions, special giveaways, or other offers as part of the Class which may modify the Products or Class requirements provided by (ISC)² without the prior written approval of (ISC)²;
- Ensure Class times begin as advertised; and
- Supply accurate information on the Class Agreement. If (ISC)² has reasons to believe that inaccurate information provided on the Class Agreement will affect the outcome of the Class, (ISC)² reserves the right to withhold shipment of Products without penalty.
Classroom-Based Training Requirements
For Classroom-Based Training, Company shall provide suitable space, furniture, support equipment, Internet access, and other items necessary for conducting the Class. For more information about recommended Class equipment, please contact the (ISC)² Account Manager working on Company’s account.
Notwithstanding any other provisions herein contained and without prejudice to any other rights such party may have, (ISC)² may terminate this Agreement by notice to Company if any of the following events occur:
- if the Company commits any breach of the Terms including the terms, conditions and provisions of any form, purchase order, or schedule attached or adopted hereto and fails to remedy such breach (unless it is a breach which entitles (ISC)² to terminate this Agreement immediately or insofar as such breach is not capable of remedy to furnish adequate compensation therefor) within thirty (30) days after receiving written notice requiring it to do so;
- if the Company becomes bankrupt or compounds or makes any arrangement with or for the benefit of its creditors or (being a company) enters into compulsory or voluntary liquidation or amalgamation (other than for the purpose of a bona fide reconstruction or amalgamation without insolvency) or has an administrator or manager appointed of the whole or substantially the whole of its undertakings.
Termination of these Terms will be without prejudice to any accrued rights of either party and will not affect obligations which are expressed not to be affected by expiry or termination hereof.
Neither party shall be liable or responsible to the other party, nor be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement (except for any obligations to make payments to the other party hereunder), when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts beyond the impacted party's ("Impacted Party") reasonable control, including, without limitation, the following force majeure events ("Force Majeure Events"): (a) acts of God; (b) flood, fire, earthquake, hurricane, or explosion; (c) war, invasion, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot, or other civil unrest; (d) government order or law; (e) actions, embargoes, or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement; (f) action by any governmental authority; (g) national or regional emergency; (h) strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns, or other industrial disturbances; (i) shortage of adequate power or transportation facilities; and (j) medical emergency, or other emergencies.

The Impacted Party shall use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Event are minimized. The Impacted Party shall resume the performance of its obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the removal of the cause.
In the event that the Impacted Party's failure or delay remains uncured for a period of sixty (60) days following notice given by it under this section and may thereafter terminate this Agreement. Upon such termination, Company will receive a full refund of any fees paid in respect to the Class.

The provisions of this Agreement are severable. In the event any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable by any act of Congress or act of any legislature or by any regulation duly promulgated by the United States or a state acting in accordance with the law, or declared null and void by any court of competent jurisdiction, then any such part shall be reformed, if possible, to conform to the law and, in any event, the remaining parts of this Agreement shall be fully effective and operative insofar as reasonably possible. If not, such provision shall be severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the enforceability or validity of any other provision contained in this Agreement and shall continue to be binding upon the Parties hereto.
Neither the termination nor expiration of this Agreement relieves either Party from its obligations to pay the other any sums accrued hereunder. The Parties agree that their respective rights, obligations, and duties as well as any rights, obligations, and duties that, by their nature, extend beyond the termination or expiration of this Agreement survive any termination or expiration and remain in effect thereafter.
These Terms, in conjunction with the Class Agreement, set forth the entire understanding of the parties with respect to its subject matter, superseding all other written or oral agreements, and may not be altered except by written agreement signed by both parties. No terms or conditions contained in any purchase order or other document supplied by Company modify or supersede these terms and conditions.
