100% Student Satisfaction Program:  Oracle’s 100% Student Satisfaction program applies to those publicly scheduled and publicly available Oracle University Instructor Led Training classes that are identified as part of the 100% Student Satisfaction program on the www.oracle.com/educationwebsite at the time the class is purchased.  In the event that a student who has completed such a class and been present for all of the offering is not, in his/her reasonable opinion, satisfied with the class, then the student must notify Oracle by emailing edenrollment_uk@oracle.com within 5 business days of the completion of the class.  Oracle will then permit the student to retake the same version of the same class title (or at the student’s option, the equivalent class provided online, if available) once more for free within 90 days of Oracle’s receipt of the notification (or if it is not available during such 90 day period, as soon as the class is available thereafter at the same location or within 50 miles therefrom).  The Student Satisfaction program does not apply: (i) to the retaken class; (ii) Training On Demand courses; (iii) if the student is not able to satisfy the above criteria for reasons beyond Oracle’s reasonable control.  Oracle is not responsible for any applicable taxes, transportation costs, lodging costs or other expenses or costs related to the retake.  Oracle has the option, at its sole discretion, of providing a refund for the class fees in lieu of permitting a class retake if for any reason, including scheduling, Oracle considers a refund to be appropriate.  This is the sole remedy and Oracle’s exclusive liability in the event that a student is not satisfied with the class.
