Classes Payment, Refund, & Cancellation Policies
Payment in full is required at the time of registration. No refunds are offered on classes and events.
In case you are unable to attend we require a 10-day notice for you to receive a credit in form of a coupon for one of our future classes, or you always have the possibility to transfer your seat to someone else.
Due to limited class space and the upfront costs of food and preparation time, our cooking classes are non-refundable. Healthy Italia has the right to reschedule or cancel any class. In this event, we will contact you directly to offer the option of a full refund or transferring your registration to the same class if it is rescheduled or a similar class.
During our summer camp sessions if you are unable to attend the week you signed up for and you let us know 10 days before for you are entitled to receive a credit that can be used ONLY during our camps sessions. Credit does not apply to our cooking school classes.
You may only make one change per camp session in order to receive credit, or you always have the possibility to transfer your seat to someone else.
Classes will not necessarily be cancelled due to inclement weather. As long as the instructor and class assistants can make it to the school, the class will be held. If the school is open and operating, there will be no refunds, credits, or exchanges because of bad weather. Plan accordingly and travel safely. If a class is cancelled, we will contact you via the email and/or phone number you provided.
I understand that the Company has the right to refuse to admit me to any cooking class, or to request that I leave any cooking class, in the event that the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that my presence (or my child’s) presents a health risk to others or is disruptive to the class.
