Terms and Conditions

Please read the following important terms and conditions before you apply for any courses, or commit to paying for any services as described on our website and check that they contain everything you want and nothing that you are not willing to agree to.

Summary of some of your key rights, if you are a consumer:

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that in most cases, you can cancel within 14 days. If you agree the services will start within this time, you may be charged for what you’ve used.

The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:

you can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it’s not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can’t fix it;
if a price hasn’t been agreed upfront, what you’re asked to pay must be reasonable;
if a time hasn’t been agreed upfront, it must be carried out within a reasonable time.

1 Introduction

1.1 In applying for a place on our courses, or engaging our services, you agree to be legally bound by this contract.

1.2 These terms and conditions apply only if you are buying services on our site as a consumer (i.e. acting as an individual in your personal capacity, or for purposes outside of your business, craft or profession). If you are buying services on our site in the course of business, certain provisions of these terms shall not apply (see below for further details; terms which apply to consumers and terms which apply to businesses).

1.3 This contract is only available in English. No other languages will apply to this contract.

1.4 In line with the terms set out below, once you have applied, been accepted upon and paid the balance of the course fees due under any of the courses or services set out on our website, these terms and conditions will apply to all subsequent dealings you have with us, unless we specifically inform you otherwise.

2 Information we give you as a Consumer

2.1 By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that we must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract between you and us is made. If you want to see this key information, please:

2.1.1 Check out the information on our website regarding the service that you are interested in (setting out the price for the services and the timeframes/methods of delivery for those services);

2.1.2 read the information sent in communications from us to you about the services you are engaging; or

2.1.3 contact us using the contact details at the top of this page.

2.2 The key information we give you by law forms part of this contract (as though it is set out in full here).

2.3 If we have to change any key information once a legally binding contract between you and us is made, we can only do this if you agree to it.

3 Your privacy and personal information

3.1 Our Privacy Policy is available at: carolineflanagan.com/privacy-policy/

3.2 Your privacy and personal information are important to us. Any personal information that you provide to us will be dealt with in line with our Privacy Policy, which explains what personal information we collect from you, how and why we collect, store, use and share such information, your rights in relation to your personal information and how to contact us and supervisory authorities if you have a query or complaint about the use of your personal information.

4 Ordering services from us

4.1 Below, we set out how a legally binding contract between you and us is made.

4.2 To apply for a place on any of our coaching programmes or courses, you must

4.2.1 submit an application through our website at: www.carolineflanagan.com on such dates and within such time period as designated by us and communicated on our website from time to time (the “enrolment period”).

4.2.2 Please consider and check your application carefully before submitting it. In making the application, you are committing to enter into a legally binding contract with us (and paying further sums), should your application be accepted.

4.3 After you have submitted your application, we will confirm whether or not you have been accepted on to our course, within 4 working days (commencing from the day after the last day of the enrolment period). We will confirm whether or not we have been able to accept your application by email. On receipt of our email confirmation that you have secured a place on our course, you will be obliged to pay the balance of the fees for the course, within the timescale set out in the Confirmation Email in order to secure your place. Your place on the course is only secured and a legally binding contract comes into existence between us, when we have received full payment of the course fee (see clause 4.6 below).

4.4 We may contact you to say that we do not accept your application. This is typically for the following reasons:

4.4.1 we cannot carry out the services;

4.4.2 you are not allowed to buy the services from us;

4.4.3 we are not allowed to sell the services to you;

4.4.4 there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the services; or

4.4.5 for any other reason as we may see fit, in our absolute and sole discretion.

4.5 We will only accept your application when we email you to confirm this (Confirmation Email). At this point:

4.5.1 a legally binding contract will be in place between you and us; and

4.5.2 we will provide the services in line with the details contained on our website.

4.6 If you are under the age of 18 you may not buy services from our site.

5 Right to cancel if you are a Consumer

5.1 You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. It is unlikely that we will accept applications for our course within 14 days from the start of the course. However, you do not have the right to cancel if you apply within 14 days of the start of the course, since in doing so, you are effectively requesting for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period, and as such, the services will have been partly performed during this period. This is further explained in clauses 5.6 and 5.7 below.

5.2 The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which the contract is made (being the day on which we send the Confirmation Email to you).

5.3 To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or email) using the contact details at the top of this page.

5.4 To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

5.5 As stated above, we do not envisage performing the services during the 14-day cancellation period, unless you make a late application and we accept your application during this time, in which case you are asking us to start performing the services within the cancellation period. If you submit your application to us within 14 days from the commencement date of a course, you will be given the option to tick a box to request for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period. By ticking the box, you acknowledge that you will lose your right to cancel this contract without liability, at least for the part of the services which have been performed by the date on which you seek to cancel the contract. If you do not tick the box, we will not be able to start providing the services to you until the cancellation period has expired, which may mean that you miss some of the course. We are not obliged to accept your request.

5.6 This means that if you requested for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period and the services have commenced during this period, you lose your right to cancel without liability and you will be required to pay an amount reflective of the portion of the services performed under this contract, even if the cancellation period has not expired.

5.7 For the avoidance of doubt, where you have applied and been accepted on to the course 14 days or more from the commencement date of the course, and where the cancellation period has expired, you lose your right to cancel this contract, whether the course has started or not, and you will not be entitled to any refunds.

5.8 This does not affect the rights you have if your services are faulty. A summary of these rights is provided at the top of this page. See also clause 10 below.

6 Effects of cancellation

6.1 If you cancel this contract within the cancellation period, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you unless you requested for us to start providing the services during the cancellation period, in which case you must pay us for the services we provided up to the time you told us that you want to cancel this contract, which will be an amount in proportion to the services performed up to that point in comparison with the full price under this contract; or

6.2 We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.

6.3 We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

6.4 Should you wish to cancel this contract outside of the cancellation period, you will lose all monies paid and shall not be entitled to any refunds.

7 Right to cancel if you are operating in the Course of a Business

7.1 If you have applied for a course and been accepted on to that course (in line with the provisions of clause 4 above), acting in the course of your business or making the application on behalf of an employee of your business, then you will be liable to pay the remaining balance due on receipt of a Confirmation Email from us (the provisions of clause 5 shall not apply).

7.2 For the avoidance of doubt, you shall not be entitled to any refund of any monies should you attempt to cancel this contact after acceptance of your application for a place on a course, that is, after we have sent you a Confirmation Email.

8 Carrying out of the services

8.1 We will endeavour to carry out the services in the timeframe or within the period set out on our website, however this is not of the essence and maybe subject to change.

8.2 We reserve the right in our absolute discretion, to deliver the services howsoever we see fit, which may include (but not be limited to) using third party guest speakers, coaches or other providers to deliver the material or content of the courses, either in part or in whole.

8.3 Due to the length of the course, our carrying out of the services might be affected by events beyond our reasonable control. If so, there might be a delay before we can start or restart the services, or an alteration to the timing/duration or days on which the services will be provided, having made reasonable efforts to limit the effect of any of those events and having kept you informed of the circumstances, but we will try to start or restart the services as soon as those events have been fixed.

8.4 It is your responsibility to make yourself available on the times and days that are identified for us to provide the services and for the duration of the course. If you are not available or present on any of those days, you will not be entitled to any refund.

8.5 Whilst we will exercise due skill and care in delivering the services, we do not guarantee any end results and cannot accept any liability for any perceived failure in meeting any standards, objectives, personal goals or outcomes.

9 Payment and pricing

9.1 We reserve the right to review and adjust the pricing of any of our courses as described on our website at any time and will update the details on our website accordingly, such changes to take immediate effect. We will not, however, change the price of a course once you have received a Confirmation Email from us and paid the total amount due in respect of that course.

9.2 We accept payment by credit cards or debit card.

9.3 We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure that all of the information you give us when paying for the services is secure by using an encrypted secure payment mechanism. However, in the absence of negligence on our part, any failure by us to comply with this contract or our Privacy Policy (see clause 3) or breach by us of our duties under applicable laws, we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you give us.

9.4 Your credit card or debit card will only be charged when we receive your application or when we have issued the Confirmation Email to you (in respect of the balance of the amount due for the course)

9.5 All payments by credit card or debit card need to be authorised by the relevant card issuer.

9.6 If your payment is not received by us in accordance with clause 8.3, we may charge interest on any balance outstanding at the rate of 4% per year above Bank of England’s base rate.

9.7 Nothing in this clause affects your legal rights to cancel the contract during the cancellation period as set out in clauses 5 and 6.

9.8 All prices are in pounds sterling (£)(GBP)and excludes VAT, which is due and payable at the applicable rate.
