DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY
MAKING AN ORDER
To place an order you will need to follow the order procedure set out on the Site. Details of the price payable in respect of any Service and the procedure for payment are displayed on the Site.
By placing an order via the Site, you indicate an offer to buy the Service and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. All orders are subject to acceptance by Us and We are entitled to refuse any order placed by you. We will provide written confirmation of your order to the email address that you submit when placing your order, but such confirmation will not constitute our acceptance of that order. We indicate Our acceptance of your offer when We have received full payment from you, at which point a contract is formed. We require payment for the Service in full before such Service is delivered. If we are unable to fulfill an order after accepting payment we may refund your money and cancel the contract.
We may revise, discontinue or modify products or services at any time without prior notice to you and products and/or services may become unavailable without notice. We shall have no liability of any kind if any product or service is not available.
You undertake that all details you provide to Us for the purpose of purchasing Services via the Site will be correct, that the credit or debit card, or any electronic cash, which you use is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of any Services. If payment is not received in full, We will be under no obligation to deliver the Services.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
Payment for all Services will be made via a third party provider payment service (Sage Pay). You will be required to submit your payment details to such third party provider and you may also be required to accept additional terms and conditions in relation to the use of that service. We cannot accept, and hereby exclude to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any liability arising out of or in connection with your use of such third party payment provider.
We may change the price of any Service before you place an order.
Despite our best efforts, some of the Services listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced or that the price may increase between your order and our acceptance of your order. If a Service’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions or reject your order and notify you of such rejection so that you can then re-order at the correct price if you wish.
If a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing we are under no obligation to provide the Service to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
Unless specified otherwise on the Site, prices include VAT and all other applicable taxes and/or import duties.
For certain of our Services (for example, in relation to some of our events), we may allow you to cancel your purchase upon sufficient notice in writing. Information relating to such cancellation and refund policy will be provided at the time of purchase and/or in the confirmation email following a purchase.
To cancel any contract or order, you must inform us in writing by email to email@example.com. The cancellation will only be effective when you receive notice from us of cancellation, after you send your request for cancellation. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
