We may publish or otherwise publicize results from this process, but, unless otherwise permitted under the Privacy Policy, those publications or public disclosures will not include your personal information.

Generally

From time to time, Data Science Dojo and the colleges, universities, and other institutions providing courses and programs on the Data Science Dojo Learning Portal (collectively, the "Members") may offer services and products for a fee (for example, course and program certificates). For anything that you choose to purchase on the Data Science Dojo Learning Portal, you agree to pay all applicable fees when due. As described in the Privacy Policy, the processing of your payment information is done by a third-party payment vendor, and you will be routed to a secure payment flow controlled by that vendor to complete the payment transaction. Once your payment transaction is completed, a Data Science Dojo confirmation page will be displayed, and you will receive a confirmation email with your name, order number, and the payment amount. Please retain this email for your records as this information will be required if you seek a refund from Data Science Dojo, as described below.

Certificates

Data Science Dojo and the Members may offer ID Verified Certificates of Achievement for courses or certificates for programs for learners who, in the Members’ judgment, have satisfactorily demonstrated mastery of the course or program material. Certificates will be issued by Data Science Dojo under the name of the underlying Member(s) from where the course or program originated. The decision of whether a certificate will be awarded to a given learner will be solely within the discretion of the awarding Member.

Refunds

If for any reason, you decide to cancel, we will gladly refund your registration fee in full if notified the Monday prior to the start of the Data Science Bootcamp. We would also be happy to transfer your registration to another bootcamp or workshop.

Refunds cannot be processed if you have transferred to a different bootcamp after registration.

Transfer Policy

Transfers are allowed once with no penalty. Transfers requested more than once will incur a $99 processing fee. Transfers requested after the refund period has passed will incur a $199 processing fee.

Transferring registration to a different team member or colleague is allowed up to one week prior to the bootcamp. No exceptions. Any transfers for the new registrant will incur a $99 processing fee.

All transfer fees must be paid prior to your enrollment to the new cohort.

No-shows to a bootcamp will not be allowed a refund or transfer.

Coupon codes and other course entitlements are subject to expiration and any other conditions stated at the time of purchase.

No Other Enrollment

You will not be an applicant for admission to, or enrolled in, any degree or other credit- or credential-bearing program of the Member as a result of registering for or completing a course or program provided by such Member through Data Science Dojo. You will not be entitled to use any of the resources of the Member beyond the online courses or programs provided on the Data Science Dojo Learning Portal, nor will you be eligible to receive student privileges or benefits provided to students enrolled in a degree or other credit- or credential-bearing programs of the Member.
