3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1 How to enrol on a course through our enrolment site. To enrol on a course, you must first register as a user on the enrolment site, as only registered users can enrol on courses through the enrolment site, or access an online course through our online courses site. You will only be required to register on the first occasion you wish to enrol on a course, and on all subsequent occasions you will only need to login and accept these terms in order to purchase a course. Our booking pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to book a course with us, and you will be required to pay a deposit at that stage. Our booking process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your enrolment to us and paying the relevant deposit and / or course fee as set out in clause 6 below. Please take the time to read and check your booking at each page of the process.
3.2 How we will accept your enrolment on a course. After placing a booking request, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your request and your deposit. Please note that this does not mean that your booking has been accepted. Your request constitutes an offer to us to buy a place on a course. All bookings are subject to acceptance by us, and to your payment of the deposit as set out in clause 6 below, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the course booking has been accepted, (Booking Confirmation). The contract between us for the sale of the course to you will only be formed when we send you the Booking Confirmation.
3.3 If we cannot accept your enrolment. If we are unable to accept your enrolment for any reason, we will inform you of this. This might be because the course you selected is over-subscribed, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because of the unexpected unavailability of a speaker or consultant, or of the venue at which the course was to take place, because you have not satisfied the relevant educational requirements for the course, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the course. In these circumstances, we will not charge you for the course in question and any deposit you have paid through the enrolment site will be refunded to you without delay.
3.4 If you are outside the UK. Our sites are principally for the promotion and sale of our courses to businesses and professionals in the UK. However, we may at our discretion accept enrolment from businesses and professionals outside the UK. However, if you live outside the UK, please note before enrolling on a course that:
(a) if you purchase a course from the enrolment site which is delivered face-to-face in the UK, you will be solely responsible at your own expense for making any arrangements in relation to travel to and from the course venue, and any accommodation requirements you may have;
(b) you will be responsible for the payment of any taxes which may be imposed on your purchase in the country in which you are situated; and
(c) you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country in which you are situated. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such laws or regulations.
3.5 Any description of the course shall not form part of the contract. Any descriptive matter or advertising issued by us, and any descriptions contained in our brochures or on our sites, are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the courses described in them. They shall not form part of the contract or have any contractual force.
4. OUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
4.1 We own all intellectual property rights in or arising out of or in connection with the courses, any materials in any medium which are supplied in connection with our courses, and our sites. For the purposes of this clause 4, “intellectual property rights” means all patents, rights to inventions, utility models, copyright and related rights, trade marks, service marks, trade, business and domain names, rights in trade dress or get-up, rights in goodwill or to sue for passing off, unfair competition rights, rights in designs, rights in computer software, database right, topography rights, moral rights, rights in confidential information (including know-how and trade secrets) and any other intellectual property rights, in each case whether registered or unregistered and including all applications for and renewals or extensions of such rights, and all similar or equivalent rights or forms of protection in any part of the world.
4.2 Licence. Access to any course under these terms (whether such course is delivered online or face-to-face) shall constitute a single-use, non-exclusive licence to access and complete the course, and for no other purpose whatsoever. Such licence is personal to the person identified as the attendee when you submit your enrolment to us through the enrolment site, and no third party is entitled to access and / or complete the course or make any use of it whatsoever. The content of the course may change between the date on which a licence for it is purchased and the date on which the course is undertaken, as we continually review and improve the content of courses, including (but not limited to) changes to laws, regulations and best practices.
4.3 Scope of our licence to you. The licence referred to in clause 4.2 shall not entitle you to copy, disseminate or otherwise duplicate in any media whatsoever any course or sample or extract thereof without our express authorisation in writing. You agree not to permit or facilitate any third party to use, to copy, disseminate or otherwise duplicate in any media whatsoever any course or sample or extract thereof without our express authorisation in writing.
4.4 We reserve the right to withdraw the licence and cancel the registration on our sites with immediate effect and without notice, in the case of any registered user who we perceive to be abusing our sites, misusing the course, or who is in breach of this clause 4, or of these terms more generally. The judgment as to whether there has been such an abuse or breach, and the consequences of such, will be at our absolute discretion.
4.5 The content of each course is up-to-date at the time at which it is undertaken, but clearly may become out-of-date afterwards. The purchase of a licence to access and complete a course does not entitle you to re-take the course if it is subsequently updated. If you wish to undertake an updated course, you will need to buy a new licence for the updated course.
5. YOUR OBLIGATIONS
5.1 Your authority to enter into a contract with us. By enrolling on a course through the enrolment site, you confirm that you have the authority and legal capacity to bind any business on whose behalf you register on our sites and / or use our sites to book any courses or access any online courses you have booked.

(h) each course is allocated CPD with MCQ questions and course attendance. If you do not attend or fail to complete the MCQs or course then you will not receive the full course CPD.
5.3 What happens if you fail to comply. If we discover, or have reasonable cause to believe, that you or the specified individual have breached any of the requirements of clause 5.2(a) to 5.2(g) above, we may in our sole discretion:

6. DEPOSIT, COURT FEES AND PAYMENTS
6.1 The deposit. You will be required to pay a deposit of £400 plus VAT each time you enrol on a course through the enrolment site. The deposit is non-refundable if you cannot attend the course, however we will refund the full amount of the deposit to you if:
(a) your place on the course you are unable to attend is subsequently filled by a third party; or
(b) we are unable to process your enrolment and / or provide you with your chosen course for any of the reasons set out in clause 3.3 above.
6.2 The course fee. A course fee will apply if you choose to book a course via the enrolment site. The course fee shall be as set out on our sites from time to time, and is charged per course, per attendee.
6.3 When the course fee is payable. The course fee is payable either:
(a) in full within 30 days of the date on which we send you your Booking Confirmation (the due date); or
(b) in instalments, with an initial deposit of £400 (plus VAT) payable immediately on booking (at which time we will send you your Booking Confirmation) and the remainder divided into the stated number of instalments, the first of which is payable 30 days after we send you your Booking Confirmation and each subsequent instalment is payable on the same day of the month thereafter (in each case, the due date) until such time as the course fee has been paid in full.
In the case of online courses, the first module of the course will be made available to you when the course in question is released, and subsequent modules will be released to you according to the timescale referred to on our sites. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to revoke access to online courses in the event that an instalment is not paid by the relevant due date.
6.4 We may change our course fees. Course fees are subject to change at any time and the current course fees will be those displayed on our sites at the time you make your booking. If we change our course fees, the revised course fee will not apply to any course you have already paid for, however you will automatically be charged the revised course fee on the next occasion you purchase a course from the enrolment site.
6.5 How to pay. Payment for all deposits and course fees must be made through the enrolment site by credit or debit card, or, in the case of the course fee if you choose to pay it in monthly instalments as set out in clause 6.3(b) above, by credit or debit card or by direct debit (direct debit availability varies depending on your location – if available, it will be offered as an option during checkout). We will charge your credit or debit card for the full amount of the deposit when you enrol on a course through the enrolment site.
6.6 VAT. All amounts payable by you under the contract are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable for the time being (VAT). Where we make any taxable supply for VAT purposes to you under the contract, you will, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from us, pay to us such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the course in question, at the same time as each payment in respect of the course fee is due.
6.7 No refunds. Except in the limited circumstances set out in clause 6.1 above, we shall not be obliged to make any refunds to you in respect of any deposit or course fee you have paid (whether in full or in part) if you:
(a) cancel once you have enrolled. We will make a cancellation charge of 50% of any unpaid element of the course fee if you have only paid part of the course fee at the time you cancel; or
(b) are unable to attend any particular part of your chosen course (although we will send to you any written materials that you would have received had you attended that part of the course).
6.8 Interest is due on late payments. If you fail to make any payment due to us under the contract by the due date, you must pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per cent per annum above Lloyds Bank plc’s base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
6.9 No set-off. You must pay all amounts due under the contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). We may at any time, without limiting our other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to us by you against any amount payable by us to you.
