Please read these Terms carefully before you make your booking with Us to attend the Course (Booking). These Terms outline how you may make a Booking, how We will administer it and when the contract comes into force, how the Course is delivered and what happens in the event of there being any issues, whether before or after the Course.

2. CONTENT OF THE WEBSITE

2.1 We take reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices appearing on the Website are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the Website.

2.2 Although We aim to keep the Website as up to date as possible, the details, description and prices appearing on the Website at a particular time may not always reflect the accurate position exactly at the moment you view them and accept no liability to you or any third party for any inaccuracies.

2.3 We do not represent, undertake or warrant that access to the Website or any part of it shall be uninterrupted, reliable or fault free.

3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU

3.1 Making a Booking. Your Booking shall not be deemed acceptance of any apparent offer made by Us and the listing of a Course on the Website shall be an invitation to treat and provided for information purposes only. Your Booking is an offer to Us for you to attend the Course and by making a Booking you warrant that you are eligible to attend and meet any and all qualifying criteria or legal conditions that apply to those attending the Course.

3.2 What will happen if you do not give required information to Us. We may need certain information from you so that We can process the Booking, as detailed on the Website. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give Us this information within a reasonable time of Us asking for it, or if you give Us incomplete or incorrect information, We may reject the Booking or otherwise treat the Booking as having been withdrawn without further liability to you.

3.3 How We will accept your Booking. Our acceptance of the Booking will only take place when We email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and Us. We reserve the right to reject your Booking for any reason whatsoever.

3.4 If We cannot accept your order. If We are unable to accept your Booking, We will inform you of this and will not charge you or otherwise provide you with a refund. This might be because the Course is fully booked or has been cancelled or postponed, because you do not meet the qualifying criteria to attend the Course, because you have not provided Us with the requisite information, because of unexpected limits on Our resources which We could not reasonably plan for, because Your payment has not gone through or because We have identified an error in the price or description of the Course.

3.5 Waiting List. Where possible, We shall place you onto a waiting list and inform you if a place becomes available on the Course. Where a place becomes available We shall let you know and if you still wish to attend, We shall process your payment and the contract will be formed.

3.6 Your Booking number. We will assign an order number to your Booking and tell you what it is when We accept your Booking. It will help Us if you can tell Us the order number whenever you contact Us about your Booking.

4. PRICE AND PAYMENT

4.1 Where to find the price. The price of the Course (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the pages when you made the Booking. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Course advised to you is correct. However please see clause 4.2 for what happens if We discover an error in the price of the Course following the contract being formed.

4.2 What happens if We got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite Our best efforts, some of the Courses We list may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Booking so that, where the Course’s correct price at your Booking date is less than Our stated price at your Booking date, We will charge the lower amount. If the Course’s correct price at your Booking date is higher than the price stated to you, We will contact you for your instructions before We accept your Booking. If We accept and process your Booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, and you do not wish to pay the correct (higher) price then We may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.

4.3 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with the payment mechanisms listed on the Website. All payments are processed in UK Pounds Sterling and no payment shall be deemed to have been made until We receive cleared funds. You may be requested to pay for the Course via any one of the following mechanisms:

4.3.1 payment in full at the time of the Booking; or

4.3.2 payment on invoice. After receipt of your Purchase Order an invoice, payable within 30 days of the course date will be issued to you.

Where any payments made in accordance with clause 4.3.2 shall incur a non-refundable administration fee equal to 10% of the price of the Course (Admin Fee), payable at the time of making the Booking. Where you are making a Booking from outside of the UK, you must make payment in full at the time of the Booking.

5.1.1 to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

5.1.2 to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, provided that its subject matter shall remain consistent.

7. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT

7.1 You can always end your contract with Us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on the timing and context of the ending of the contract:

7.1.1 If you want to end the contract because of something We have done or have told you We are going to do, see clause 7.2;

7.1.2 If you are a consumer and have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 7.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions;

7.1.3 In all other cases (if We are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 7.4.

7.2 Ending the contract because of something We have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 7.2.1 to 7.2.4 below the contract will end immediately and We will refund you in full and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

7.2.1 We have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these Terms which you do not agree to (see clause 5.2);

7.2.2 We have told you about an error in the price (where the correct price is greater than that You were told about) or description of the Course and you do not wish to proceed;

7.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the Course may be significantly delayed because of events outside Our control; or

7.2.4 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something We have done wrong.

7.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013) if you are a consumer. If you are a consumer you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days of the contract being formed and receive a refund. However, once We have completed the Course you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after We have started the Course, you must pay Us for the services provided up until the time you tell Us that you have changed your mind.

7.4 Ending the contract where We are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if We are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 7.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay Us compensation. The contract is completed when the Course has been delivered and you have paid for it. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where We are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact Us to let Us know. The contract will end immediately and We will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but We may deduct from that:

7.4.1 50% of the price where the cancellation is made no less than 7 days prior to the date of the Course;

7.4.2 100% of the price where the cancellation is made less than 7 days prior to the date of the Course.

9.3 We may postpone or withdraw the Course. We may write to you to let you know that We are going to postpone or withdraw the Course. We may exercise this right at Our absolute discretion but including but not limited to where events have occurred beyond Our reasonable control (whether that be due to force majeure, adverse weather conditions, failure of any of Our suppliers, agents or subcontractors) or We have an inadequate number of delegates booked to attend the Course. In the event of a:

9.3.1 postponement, We shall provide you with the option to:

9.3.1.1 attend the Course on an alternative date, where We are able to provide an alternative date within a reasonable time and without causing significant inconvenience; or

Loss or damage is foreseeable if it falls outside of the categories set out above and either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both We and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with Us during the sales process.

11.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way Our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by Our negligence or the negligence of Our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Course.

13.5 Even if We delay in enforcing this contract, We can still enforce it later. If We do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if We delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent Us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and We do not chase you but We continue to provide the products, We can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

13.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you are a consumer and live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the contract in either the Scottish or the English courts.
