THIS AGREEMENT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING BELOW.

If Participant is under 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian

must also read and sign this Agreement.

This Participation Agreement (Assumption of Risk, Waiver of Liability, Release and Indemnification) (“Agreement”) is entered into between CRCC Asia Limited, a company incorporated in Hong Kong with registered number 1289657 and having its registered office at Rooms 1318-20, 13/F Hollywood Plaza, 610 Nathan Road, Mongkok, Hong Kong (“CRCC”, “We”, or “Us”), and the individual whose name and address appear in the signature line below (“Participant”, “You”, or “Your”).

BACKGROUND

This Agreement is intended to govern the relationship between CRCC and Participant with respect to Participant’s participation in the international program offered by CRCC and noted below (“Program”).  In consideration for being permitted to participate in the Program, CRCC requires that You carefully review the provisions of this Agreement.  By signing this Agreement in the space provided below, You acknowledge and agree to the following:

AGREEMENT

 

  • The Purpose of CRCC Programs

 

CRCC Programs are an opportunity to gain work experience, training and/or professional skills in one of CRCC’s program locations around the world.  It is an investment in Your future and is not a holiday or tourist service. We ask that You manage Your expectations accordingly before embarking on one of Our programs.  You confirm that You are committed to completing the Program and will do so to the best of Your abilities.

 

  • Application Process and Deposit; Nondiscrimination

 

In order to be accepted onto the Program, You must complete Our application process and be offered a place on the Program.  Your place on the Program will be reserved once We receive a deposit (the “Acceptance Fee”) in the amount specified in your acceptance letter or Our initial invoice.  The Acceptance Fee is non-refundable unless the Program has been cancelled by Us without the Participant’s consent or a refund of the Acceptance Fee is decided upon by Us at Our discretion (see “Changes, Extensions and Cancellations” and”Changes and Cancellations by Us” sections below).  This is due to the fact that We will start work in relation to Your participation in the Program as soon as We receive the Acceptance Fee.

 

We retain the right to reject any application We deem unsuitable for the Program, in Our sole discretion and at any stage of the application process.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, age, national origin, citizenship, disability, pregnancy, veteran status, or other any other legally protected characteristic, and We do not reject applications based on any of these criteria.

 

  • What’s included in the Program?

 

Your Program includes the specific services set forth in the applicable program description and as selected by you in your application materials (“Services”).  We undertake to provide You the Services, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We reserve the right to make reasonable changes and/or substitutions to the Services, based on local conditions and other factors, upon prior written notice to You.  Services typically include the following:

      1. Work Placement.  We will arrange for an unpaid work placement (“Placement”) with a company or non-profit organization (“Host Organization”) in the location of Your Program.  You accept that although CRCC endeavors to ensure a high quality of service and although We have reasonable procedures in place to assist You with any issues that may arise while on the Program, We have no control over the specific jobs and tasks given to You, or the type or amount of work given to You, by Your Host Organization during Your Placement.
      2. Accommodation, Accommodation Deposits and Associated Amenities.  Furnished accommodation will be provided to You in the Program location by Our third-party accommodation provider from the date that Your Program starts (“Program Start Date”) until the date that Your Program ends (“Program End Date”).  We will pay bills related to the third-party accommodation provider including, gas, electricity, water and internet up to but not exceeding a reasonable amount as determined by the third-party accommodation provider and confirmed as reasonable by Us.  Upon arrival at the accommodation, a deposit will be paid by You to the accommodation provider (unless explicitly excluded as part of Your Program or explicitly excluded due to You being a participant on a customized university or other program). This deposit will be refunded to You by the accommodation provider provided that no damage, theft or other bills, fees, charges or expenses are outstanding upon checkout.  We shall not be responsible for the decisions made by the accommodation provider as to any deductions made to Your accommodation deposit. You must check out of the accommodation on the Program End Date and You are responsible for the payment of any bills, fees, charges or other expenses due (beyond those deemed reasonable and paid by Us). For the avoidance of doubt, You shall be responsible for the payment of any bills, fees, charges or other expenses that exceed the reasonable amount allocated to You by Our third-party accommodation provider.
      3. Contact Information for In-Country Support.  We will provide You with contact details of CRCC staff members situated in Your Program location.
      4. Airport Pick-Up.  We will provide You with transportation from the pre-agreed airport to the designated accommodation at pre-agreed times.  Transportation of the Participant from the agreed airport in the Program location is only available at certain times on the Program Start Date and full details of this will be provided to You in Your welcome pack (“Welcome Pack”).  If You require airport pick-up outside of the hours, dates and locations stipulated in Your Welcome Pack, not on the specified arrival day, or not in the specified airport, You will incur an additional reasonable charge.
      5. Additional Services.  We will provide You with a welcome meal and induction course during the first week of Your Program.  We will provide You with social, cultural and business events where this is part of Your Program. We will provide you with language instruction where this is part of Your Program.

 

  • Notification of Placement

 

      1. We will endeavor to inform You of your Placement with a Host Organization at least one (1) month before your Program Start Date.  If a Placement notification is delayed, We will inform You in writing as to the reasons for the delay.
      2. Prior to sending a Placement notification to You, if We arrange an interview with a Host Organization, we expect You to act professionally and complete the interview to the best of Your ability.  If You complete an interview and are not accepted into the Host Organization, We will arrange another Placement. An invitation to interview with a Host Organization does not assure Placement within either the Host Organization or the sector.
      3. We will ensure that Your Placement falls within Your pre-specified first three (3) sectors of Your choice.  We do not guarantee a specific company, role, or sector, other than Your pre-specified sectors of choice.
      4. If, for whatever reason, You do not accept the Placement, and it falls within Your first three (3) sectors of Your choice as indicated in your application materials, and You choose not to participate in the Program, We will give no refund of program fees or any other associated costs, and we will not be obliged to provide an alternative Placement.
