Bitesize CPD – Free Trial

This free trial offer is open to Australian residents aged 18 years or over who work in the veterinary field in Australia and are not an existing or a past Member on the Learning Platform. Offer will be valid from 10/01/2018 until 31/12/2018.

This offer entitles eligible individuals to access Improve International’s Online Bitesize CPD (and the materials related to it), for free, on the Learning Platform for a period of ten (10) days, from the moment that they register for the trial. By registering for the free trial, each individual acknowledges that they will be required to submit payment details, which will be used for future ongoing charges if they do not cancel their membership prior to the expiration of the trial period. By submitting their payment details, individuals accept these terms and consent to Improve International using their payment details in accordance with its membership terms of use. If an individual does not wish to become a paying Member of the Online Bitesize CPD upon the expiration of their free 10 day trial period, they must terminate their membership by notifying Improve International in writing to info.au@improveinternational.com, before the end of the 10 day free trial period. A Member who has registered for a free trial using their Paypal account will also need to cancel their automatic payments through their Paypal account. For the avoidance of doubt, individuals will be automatically charged for their use of the Learning Platform after the expiration of their free trial period, unless they cancel their membership before the end of their free trial period. Unless the individual cancels or wishes to change or upgrade their membership type, they will be automatically subscribed to the Online Bitesize CPD payment plan, which will allow access to the Online Bitesize CPD on the Learning Platform, and will be charged at $37.50 per month, until the individual cancels their membership.

Each person can only take advantage of the free trial once.

To the extent permitted by law, Improve International reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to withdraw or to modify the free trial offer at any time without prior notice and with no liability.
