Payment terms

Use of our payment services

Refer to Payment terms at www.compass.education/Corporate/payment/

Enrolments and Offers

We offer online enrolments as a 'convenient option' for completing your school enrolment online. Importantly, completion of, payment of and/or receipt of an enrolment 'offer' does not bind the client (school) to providing you or your child a position or enrolment at the school.
Further, under no circumstances do we and/or the client provide any warranty, guarantee or formal confirmation of acceptance to a school and/or educational institution. In using this service the user agrees to waive any liability (implied, direct and/or consequential) to us (including the relevant client), as permissable by law, with regard to the validity of the offer. We reserve the right to revoke an offer AT ANY time. In the event that an offer is revoked after a payment has been received or processed, we will refund any monies as soon as possible (usually within 2 business days).
During the enrolment process a number of details are collected on behalf of the school. These details are provided to the school and are then removed from our system after a 'reasonable transfer period'. We are committed to protecting your information, as such these details are not distributed by us to any third parties. Should you not agree with any of these terms and conditions, including this section and all other relevant sections you should NOT use our online enrolment system, instead you should contact the relevant school requesting a manual registration form.
