IDD reserves the right to modify the content of the IDD Programs offered and information as listed on the program website (https://iddifferences.org/) without prior notice.
Participants represent and warrant that all registration information they submit is accurate and truthful. IDD may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the IDD Program services to any person and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the IDD Programs is revoked in such jurisdictions.
1. THE IDD PROGRAMS

Subject to full compliance with these Terms, Participant is granted access to the relevant IDD Program materials for personal, non-commercial use only. Under this license, Participant may not: modify the IDD Program materials; use the IDD Program materials for any commercial purpose; remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or transfer the materials to another person or entity. This license shall automatically terminate if Participant violates any of these restrictions or any other provisions of these Terms, and may be terminated by IDD at any time.
Acceptance to the IDD Programs is done on a rolling basis by IDD staff or IDD’s officially designated representatives.
IDD reserves the right to reject an applicant if the application requirements are not met or if program offering is not available for any reason. IDD encourages applicants to apply as early as possible to ensure a spot on their desired IDD Program. In cases where IDD receives applications in excess of capacity, IDD may at its sole discretion create a waitlist of applicants based on the date and time that the complete application was received. Incomplete applications will not be considered. IDD does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, marital status, national and ethnic origin, or disability.
3. PROGRAM CANCELLATION BY IDD BEFORE PROGRAM START
IDD reserves the right to cancel the IDD Programs due to insufficient enrollment or other factors beyond its control. All IDD Programs are based on group arrangements involving a minimum number of participants. In the unlikely event that a program is cancelled prior to the start of the program, due to low enrollment or any other reason, IDD will refund all payments received or offer an exchange but will have no further liability or obligation to the prospective Participants. If circumstances beyond IDD’s control require that an IDD Program be canceled following the program start date and prior to the end of an IDD Program term, IDD will make reasonable efforts to make alternative arrangements in order to allow Participants to complete the IDD Program, however, no monetary refund will be available.
4. PAYMENT TERMS
Spaces for the IDD Programs are limited. Registrations will be open on a “first-come, first-served” basis and based on IDD Programs eligibility. A completed registration form and payment of the tuition fee (the “Fee”) are required in order to enroll in an IDD Program. The Fee is non-refundable and non-transferable for accepted registrants, except as provided herein.
The IDD Programs run on the dates available on the IDD Programs registration site: https://iddifferences.org (the calendar will be updated on an ongoing basis as more dates become available). IDD may update the Fee from time to time. The Fee applicable to each Participant at any given time is the fee shown on the online payment page at the time the Participant completes an application and is requested to complete online payment to enroll in the selected Program. Applicable taxes in the local country of Participant, if any, will be the responsibility of Participant.
The submission of the registration form does not automatically guarantee acceptance. Any payment made by a registrant who is not accepted will be returned. All requirements may be waived at the sole discretion of IDD.
The eligibility requirements for IDD Programs include:
- Have 5 or more years of experience and demonstrated interest in intercultural communication, global citizenship education and global learning, diversity-equity-inclusion, global competence, and/or the greater developing across differences field. Exceptions to this requirement may be made in consultation with IDD at at IDD’s sole discretion.
- Have proficiency in English (ability to read written content including videos subtitled in English, comment in forums, and understand the live sessions) and/or other language in which the IDD Program is offered.
- For AHE and IS Programs: Access a computer, smartphone or other digital device with an integrated webcam and mic plus a stable internet (wifi) connection for taking part in the online live sessions and to access the Program communications and content.
- For DAD Programs: Attend the Program in-person unless otherwise specified.
No registration will be confirmed without receiving the program payment at least 24 hours before the IDD Program starts.
5. CANCELLATION BY PARTICIPANT
The Fee is due at least 24 hours before the IDD Program starts. IDD Programs are non-transferable to another IDD Program applicant under any circumstances. Once the Participant submits the registration forms and pays the Fee, IDD reviews, processes, and administers those registrations. Once accepted by IDD for an IDD Program, Participants will be issued an admission confirmation. Once the admission confirmation has been issued by IDD the Fee is non-refundable and Participants may not request a refund, exchange or credit, or dispute the Fee charges.
6. CANCELLATION BY IDD
IDD reserves the right to cancel any IDD Program for any reason and at any time, in which case a Fee refund will be provided to the affected Participant/s to the extent of payment received by IDD. Alternatively, a credit or program exchange may be offered to Participant/s. In the event that IDD has to cancel an IDD Program after it starts, because of circumstances reasonably beyond IDD control, no refunds will be due. Circumstances reasonably beyond IDD control (force majeure) may include: acts of God, accident, riots, war, terrorist act, epidemic, pandemic, quarantine, civil commotion, breakdown of communication facilities, breakdown of web host, breakdown of internet service provider, natural catastrophes, governmental acts or omissions, changes in laws or regulations, and national strikes.
Participants are expected to comply with these Terms established by IDD for appropriate use of the IDD Programs platform. IDD may dismiss without warning from an IDD Program (and remove access to the Program platform) any Participant who does not comply with the relevant regulations and requirements as outlined in these Terms. IDD does not grant Fee refunds to Participants who are dismissed from their programs.
IDD reserves the right to reject a registration that does not meet our eligibility requirements by notifying the registrant by email and issuing a refund in the event that any Fee payment has been already made. IDD can also terminate the participation of any Participant in an IDD Program if IDD or its authorized agent or representative deems Participant to have failed to comply with the Terms or otherwise engaged in conduct that is detrimental to the IDD Programs, other Participants, or to the reputation of IDD itself. IDD shall have no responsibility for any expense incurred by any such Participant in connection with their IDD Program participation. All consequential costs of participant expulsion shall be borne by the Participant without recourse to refund of unused program benefits.
IDD, at its discretion, may monitor the content of any IDD Program forums to determine compliance with these Terms, including the Participant Code of Conduct, and to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, or authorized government request. IDD shall also have the right to remove any forum posts or other materials that IDD, in its sole discretion, finds to be in violation of the provisions hereof or otherwise objectionable.
9. MODIFICATION OF TERMS
IDD may amend these Terms at any point with or without notice to Participants. The Terms posted at any given time are the Terms applicable to the IDD Programs. It is your responsibility to check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of an IDD Program means that you accept and agree to the changes.
IDD shall not be responsible for any damage to Participant caused by use of third party service providers that may be accessible in the IDD Program platform. IDD uses a third party provider for the online platform where the IDD Programs content is delivered. When accessing such platform Participant will accept the applicable terms as displayed in the platform.

In the event that the learning management system platform, video conference platform, activities, or any other parts or all of the IDD Programs are changed, delayed, postponed, canceled or otherwise not provided, IDD reserves the right to provide such substitutions or supplementary services as can be secured or provided. If IDD determines that no such alternatives are available, IDD shall refund to Participant whatever amount that IDD is able to obtain a refund from the service provider for the lost services, less any out-of-pocket expenses paid by or to be paid by IDD.
