(Version 1 / Status: 16 January 2019)
The following general terms and conditions of contract (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) form an integral part of the present contractual relationship between the customer and Inforce Group AG, Stettbachstrasse 6, 8600 Dübendorf [company identification: CHE-142.319.583], which in this case occurs under its trademark “Mandalingua” and is abbreviated to “ML” in the following conditions. The terms and conditions are available on the website: www.mandalingua.com at any time and are enclosed with the written confirmation.
ML has built up a well-developed network of relationships in individual major cities in China for companies that offer internships. ML provides the customers with their know-how and the network of relationships in order to conclude a corresponding internship contract.
The customer pays for this service, on the one hand, a processing fee of CHF 650 / EUR 590 and, if the internship contract, an individually agreed agency fee depending on the type and duration of employment and the associated expenses of ML. The process fee will be deducted from the agreed agency fee in case of a succeeded internship placement.
2. Registration and conclusion of contract
The registration can be made either verbally (by phone / in person) or in writing (via e-mail or post). A contractual relationship regarding advice is justified with the dispatch of the confirmation by ML.
A contract with the company comes with the countersigning of the internship contract by the company.
3. Agency fee
If an internship contract is offered to the customer by the company, the client has to pay an agency fee to ML according to an individual agreement.
4. Payment terms
The payment of the fees has to be made within 10 days after invoicing. The date of receipt of payment is noted on the invoice.
The fees are to be paid in Swiss Francs via bank or postal transfer. Payments by credit and debit cards are not possible. Any bank and postal charges at the expense of the customer.
ML endeavors to take account of any change requests prior to commencement of the internship, provided that this is compatible with the contractual conditions of the company on site. ML will charge a processing fee of at least CHF 150.00 / EUR 135.00 for each rebooking.
A cancellation for serious reasons (illness, accident, etc.) can be covered by a travel cancellation insurance or travel or cancellation insurance. ML recommends e.g. the basic package of Europäische Reiseversicherungs AG.
7. Entry requirements / visa
The customer is under his own responsibility to inform himself about the necessary entry, visa, foreign exchange, vaccination and insurance provisions. In this context, reference is made to the travel advisories of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in Switzerland or the Foreign Office in Germany. There are also hints on the ML website. A detailed discussion of the destination is assumed.
ML assumes the liability for careful information of the customer and the proper communication with the company. Further liability is excluded.
Due to the great cultural and economic differences, there may be deviations from the European standards. If, despite these circumstances, the customer believes that the agreed conditions of work and accommodation do not correspond to what has been agreed, the matter must be discussed with the responsible person on site. If the request can not be resolved satisfactorily, ML must be contacted by phone or e-mail. ML will try to find a solution.
10. Applicable law and jurisdiction
Only Swiss law is applicable. Jurisdiction is CH-8600 Dübendorf (registered office of the company).
