3. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
3.1 After booking a course, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your booking. Please note that this does not mean that your booking has been accepted. Your booking constitutes an offer to us to purchase delegate places at a course. All bookings are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the booking has been made (Booking Confirmation) and the onus is upon you to ensure that our url has been added to your e-mail whitelist. The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Booking Confirmation.
3.2 The Contract will relate only to those courses whose booking we have confirmed in the Booking Confirmation. We will not be obliged to deliver any other Courses that may have been part of your booking until the booking of such courses has been confirmed in a separate Booking Confirmation.
3.3 The Contract is governed by English law.
4. DEVELOPMENT FEES
4.1 We reserve the right to levy a course development fee when the customisation of a course, in accordance with clause 2.2, results in the course material being wholly or partly re-written. This fee will be agreed on a case by case basis and will be confirmed prior to any work being started after which a Booking Confirmation will be sent.
5. CANCELLATIONS and TRANSFERS
5.1 The following cancellation/transfer fees and periods apply to any cancellations/transfers by you:
Days notice of cancellation/transfer prior to the commencement of the Course and % of course fee to pay:
21-30 working days – 50%
15-20 working days – 75%
14 working days or under (including non-attendance) – 100%
All non-recoverable expenses regardless of when the course was cancelled.
N.B. We do not imply or guarantee that other delegates will attend open (public) courses. Should you not wish to have the course delivered on a one-to-one basis then the cancellation fees detailed above will apply.
5.2 Subject to clause 5.1, if you are contracting as an individual and not for a business you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days beginning on the day after you receive the Booking Confirmation. In this case you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the courses less an administration charge of 25%.
5.3 Should you cancel or transfer a course booking you may attend another course of equal or greater value upon paying the difference (if any). If you cancel or transfer a course booking then an administration charge will be levied in accordance with the cancellation/transfer fees detailed in clause 5.1 and in addition you will be required to pay the applicable fee for the new course of your choice.
5.4 To cancel or amend a Contract you must inform us by e-mail in the first instance (firstname.lastname@example.org) and also in writing.
