    The internship contract is between you and our internship provider.

    You will be expected to dress and behave appropriately for work in accordance with the cultural norms in Vietnam, which may be very different from those in your home country. Our partner school will not be able to help you if your internship is terminated because you refuse to comply with your school’s expectations in relation to style of dress, hair or personal adornment.

    As any work that you do may involve work with children or vulnerable people, it may be necessary for you to produce a police clearance certificate (or similar background check). This may affect whether or not your application is accepted by our internship provider/school and what records they keep about you.

    By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you acknowledge and agree that our internship provider may transfer, store and process your personal data and sensitive personal data as contemplated by this agreement interpretation in a dispute.

    If any wording in this agreement for any reason is held by a court to be unfair, illegal or unreasonable, it will not bind you, and the court shall remove that wording from the agreement, and the rest of the agreement will still continue to bind our internship provider and you.

    Our internship provider will use all reasonable skill and care in providing our services to you in accordance with these terms.

    The countries our internship provider may need to transfer your personal data to may not afford the same level of protection to your personal data as your home country.

    As any work that you do may involve work with children or vulnerable people, it may be necessary for you to produce a police clearance certificate (or similar background check). This may affect whether or not your application is accepted by our internship provider/school and what records they keep about you.

    By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you acknowledge and agree that our internship provider may transfer, store and process your personal data and sensitive personal data as contemplated by this agreement interpretation in a dispute.
