"On condition that" and "provided that" both mean that a certain restriction is in place.

You may go out tonight on condition that you are back by nine o'clock!

On the other hand, "given that" means that you are judging one thing while taking into consideration something else.

Given that there are over 20 students in the class, and only one teacher, I think they have done a marvelous job!

Given that we had so many places to stop on the way, we made pretty good time on our trip!
