OCTWQA PRIVACY AND RETENTION POLICY:
OCTWQA retains student records for seven years. OCTWQA does not sell or provide operator
information to anyone without written authorization from the requesting operator.
Upon written request, OCT Water Quality Academy will release permanent record information
to the operator’s State Department of Health Services, Operator Certification Unit
and/or the named Operator’s Utility of employment. All information is the sole property

Cancellation Policy:
If you cancel an agreed upon contract for educational session(s) for any reason prior to the contract confirmation date, you will be liable for the following charges:

  1. If you cancel after the calendar date(s) have been confirmed, you will owe OCTWQA 50% of the face amount of the agreed upon contract amount.
  2. If you cancel within two (2) weeks of the dates scheduled, then you will owe OCTWQA 75% of the face amount of the agreed upon contract.

Upon cancellation, the amount of the cancellation charges will be determined and a billing sent to you, which will specify the amounts that will be due and payable within 30 days of the date of the billing notice. Any deposit required under this agreement shall be forfeited and applied to the billing amount assessed. Failure to pay the net billed amount within the 30 day period will result in all legal collection remedies being used to collect the debt, including reporting under the Fair Debt Collection Act to credit reporting agencies. In addition, any unpaid and assessed monies due us will be charged the legal rate of interest under the Federal Regulation Z (as amended) of 1.5% per diem.

Should OCTWQA be required to seek collection of the debt owed, then any Court of competent Jurisdiction, or assigned arbitrator by the Court, shall award attorney fees and costs to the prevailing party therein.

Upon entering into a contract or accepting a proposal with OCTWQA, an Authorized Officer or Agent of the Organization must read and sign a copy of the preceding cancellation notice.
