How the contract is formed between You and Us
Should You wish to make a booking, You can do so by using Our online facility on Our Site, by telephone, by email or in any other non-online format agreed between us in each case. Our online booking facility is subject to Our online terms and conditions of use in addition to these terms and conditions. In the event that the terms and conditions of use are inconsistent with the terms of this agreement, then the terms of this agreement shall prevail. If You do not wish to enter Your information over the internet, please print out/fill in a copy of Our booking request form and return it to: email@example.com together with payment in accordance with the paragraph headed Price and payment below.
Please note that receipt by Us of Your booking request does not mean that Your booking has been accepted and, in particular, We accept no responsibility for booking requests that do not reach Us for whatever reason. Your booking request constitutes an offer to Us to secure a place at one of Our Events or to book one of Our Courses. All bookings are subject to availability at the Event or Course (for face to face courses) and formal acceptance by Us, and We will confirm such acceptance to You by sending You an email (the “Booking Confirmation”). The contract between Us (“Contract”) will only be formed when We send You the Booking Confirmation.
The Contract will relate only to those Events or Courses which We have confirmed in the Booking Confirmation.
There is a limited number of places at each face to face Event or Course and these will be allocated in order of receipt of bookings, or as We, in our absolute discretion, may determine. We shall have no liability to you what soever for any failure by You to secure a place on one of Our Courses.
We reserve the right to make changes to the published programme of an Event or Course (but not the overall content), for example to timings and/or speakers. In such cases, You will not be entitled to cancel and We shall have no liability to You whatsoever in that regard. We are not obliged to notify you in advance of any changes to speakers.
Our Courses and/or Events which are advertised as being presented in person by Us or one of our employees, consultants or agents are held at a number of venues. You acknowledge that We may have to change the published venue for the Event or Courses for reasons beyond Our control and in such cases, You will not be
entitled to cancel unless the change in venue represents a significant disadvantage to You. We shall have no liability to You whatsoever in such circumstances.
You are liable for any loss or damage which You (or any delegates attending under your Booking Confirmation (“Delegates”) may cause to Our premises or that of the external venue and agree to adhere to all housekeeping rules, procedures and policies (including policies as to behaviour and conduct) that may be in place at any venue from time to time. You agree to indemnify Us fully and effectively and without limit in amount with regard to any such costs, damages, fees and other losses of any nature whatsoever (including consequential losses and the costs of enforcing the terms of this agreement) which we may suffer as a result of Your or any of your Delegates failure to comply with the terms of this agreement, including, without limitation, the provisions of this clause.
If you have a disability or medical condition that requires special arrangements to be made, please notify Us of Your requirements when making Your booking.
Continuing Professional Development (“CPD”) Points
To claim CPD points (if applicable) in respect of Our Events or Courses, please ensure that You sign the relevant Event or Course register. CPD points can only be validly claimed if You attend the full duration of the Event or Course or complete the Course online. We have no liability to You or any of your Delegates in the event that either the Course or Event does not fulfil your specific CPD requirements (it is Your sole responsibility to ensure that the relevant Course or Event meets your specific CPD requirements prior to applying to attend a Course or Event) or that You or any of your Delegates do not complete the Course or Event.
Price and payment
The price of any of Our Events or Courses will be as quoted in Our brochures and flyers and on Our Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. These prices are exclusive of VAT. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect bookings in respect of which We have already sent You a Booking Confirmation, except in cases of obvious error. You may pay for Your booking by credit and debit card. We regret that we cannot accept cheques, credit notes or cash as payment. Credit and debit card payments made online via our site are processed by Stripe, a leading independent internet payment service provider (“Payment Processor”). When you make an online payment for a Course or Event, your credit or debit card details, name and email address are transmitted directly to the Payment Processor using SSL/TLS encryption technology. In order to process your payment we will need to share some of your details such as your name or email address with the Payment Processor. However, no credit or debit card payment information is transmitted to our own servers. You hereby consent to the transfer by Us to the Payment Processor of such information.
Alternatively, should You wish to make a booking online but do not wish to make a payment over the internet, We shall raise an invoice for payment of the Course or Event and send it to You for satisfaction. Payment shall be due strictly in accordance with Our standard invoice terms (seven days from date of invoice). Payment must be made in advance before the course is attended or in the event of online courses, you will not be able to access the course until payment has been made. We shall be entitled to charge You interest on late payments in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 (as amended from time to time).
Please note that We cannot guarantee the security of data which You send us by email. Accordingly, please do not send Us payment information using email. Unless We are fraudulent, We will not be liable to You for any losses caused as a result of unauthorised access to the personal and transactional information that You provide Us when making a booking.
Our refunds policy
If You cancel the Contract between us by giving Us in excess of 48 hours notice in writing prior to a Course or Event starting, You shall be entitled to a credit note for the full value of the Course or Event booked (which is not personal to You and can be redeemed against any of Our other Courses). Such credit note must be used within the financial year of issue (please note that Our financial year runs from September to August). We will process the credit note due to You as soon as possible. If You cancel the Contract between us by giving Us notice in writing less than 48 hours prior to the Course or Event starting, You shall not be entitled to any credit note or other form of refund.
Substitute Delegates may be accepted by Us, at Our sole discretion, provided that the substitute Delegate meets any applicable eligibility criteria for the relevant Course or Event. If You fail to attend a Course or Event for which You are registered and have not given Us prior notice then You shall not be entitled to any credit note or otherwise pursuant to Our refunds policy.
We shall be entitled to cancel Your booking where We need to do so due to circumstances outside of Our control (including, but not limited to, situations where sufficient numbers have not booked for the Course or Event or the speakers are unavailable or cancel the Course or Event or if You are more seven days in arrears with any payment due to Us, or if it may prejudice Our reputation). We shall have no liability for losses or costs which You may incur due to such cancellation but We shall refund your booking payment (in full as soon as possible) or offer You an alternative Course or Event if one is available. You have the choice of accepting the refund, a credit note or attending the alternative Course or Event.
There will be no refund of online Courses once payment has been made and we have accepted your booking request.
We will usually refund any money received from You using the same method originally used by You to pay for Your purchase but reserve the right to refund using an alternative method.

If We fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of Your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if We fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which We are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve You from compliance with such obligations.

If any of these terms and conditions or any provisions of a Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Our right to vary these terms and conditions
We have the right to revise and amend these terms and conditions from time to time to reflect changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in Our system’s capabilities.
You will be subject to the policies and terms and conditions in force at the time that You place a booking with Us, unless any change to those policies or these terms and conditions is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to bookings previously made by You), or if We notify You of the change to those policies or these terms and conditions before We send You the Booking Confirmation (in which case We have the right to assume that You have accepted the change to the terms and conditions, unless You notify Us to the contrary within seven working days of receipt by You of the Booking Confirmation).
