8          PURCHASING FROM US – OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR SUPPLY

8.1       Introduction

This paragraph 8 sets out the terms and conditions on which we sell to you, whether we are selling goods, services or digital content (together we call these activities for sale ‘Services’). These terms tell you how we will provide Services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.

Given the nature of the Services available for sale online on our website, these terms and conditions assume you are purchasing as a business or in furtherance of your business or profession rather than as a consumer for personal consumption. In the unlikely event this is not the case, please let us know and we can discuss more appropriate terms and conditions.

Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us.

If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact [email protected] so that we can discuss it.

8.2       Lightning Process

We are an associate for Phil Parker’s Lightning Process Head Office Team.  You can book directly onto the Lightning Process training through the clinic website and bookings are subject to their terms and conditions: www.lightningprocess.co.uk

8.3       Ordering

You may order Services via our site or direct from us after discussion in email, phone or in person.

After placing an order for a Service,  you will receive an email confirming your order and acknowledging that we have received it.

The legal contract between us will only be formed at the point that we send your order confirmation email. The contract between us is based on these terms and conditions.

For online purchases, your credit or debit card, or (where accepted) PayPal account, will be authorised when your order is placed and processed. In relation to online Services,  you may not be charged for the Service until the point that you are granted access to the online platform upon which you will access the Service.

Where our Services are not ordered online, we will send you an invoice and payment will be due in the timescale set out in the invoice.

Our approach to payment does not affect your statutory rights.

8.4       Rejection of Your Online Order

Occasionally, we may not be able to accept your online order. If this is the case, we will inform you by email and will not charge you for the Service. This might be because an online product is out of stock or temporarily unavailable, or because there is an error in the price or description of the Service, or because we are updating the content.

8.5       Content of Our Services

We make every effort to describe the content, usage and purpose of the Services which appear on our website as accurately and completely as possible. However, we do not give any assurance that the Service supplied will meet your exact need or the purpose for which you require it (unless we are providing a bespoke Service or Consultancy Service designed after discussion with you).

Where you are buying a Service online, it is your responsibility to take all necessary steps to ask questions prior to purchase to satisfy yourself that the course or programme is suitable for your individual needs.

Please contact us at [email protected]  if you require further guidance, prior to purchase, as all sales are final.

If you wish to make a change or request for additional services to be added to the Service (such as additional coaching) you must contact us in advance of purchase. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price, the timing of delivery or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

We may have to suspend the supply of a Service to:

  • Deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
  • Update it to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
  • Make changes as requested by you or notified by us to you.
  • In these cases we will give you as much notice as is reasonably possible.
8.6       Accessing and Using Online Services

In the case of online training and education Services, you will usually receive access to the Service online within 24 hours. You will be supplied with a URL and a unique login username and password. This is strictly for your use only and not to be shared with anyone else. If you become aware that someone else has accessed your login details you must contact us immediately.

8.7       Delivery of Other Services

If you have purchased a bespoke or consultancy Service, we will begin the services on the date set out in the invoice or on the date agreed with you during the order process. The estimated completion date for the Service is as told to you during the order process.

8.8       Intellectual Property Rights in The Services

Unless the Service or an aspect of it is already covered by the intellectual property rights referred to in paragraph 7.6 (relating generally to free Content on our site, in which case the terms in that paragraph apply), you will not copy, modify, re-use or publish any aspects of our Service without our prior written consent. You will not attempt to re-sell any aspects of our Service  (or the content within) whether for commercial gain or otherwise.

Any costs involved in downloading, accessing, printing or using the content will be met by you.

Whilst we do our best to keep the content in our Services accurate and up to date at all times, we are not liable for any inaccuracies in the content and you will take responsibility for validating the information you receive before taking any active steps to implement it within your business.

8.9       Delays and Refunds

There is no general right of refund on the Service you have purchased. Sales are final.

We hope this never happens but we are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Service is delayed by an event outside our control - or suspended for a reason set out in paragraph 8.5  - then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any Service you have paid for but not received.

If you are not happy with your purchase you may contact us within 30 days of purchase and provide feedback and reasons, in which case we may be willing to make a discretionary refund based upon the individual facts of the situation. You will be asked to give full details upon which we can make this decision.

8.10     Cancellation of Training Courses/Workshops by You

If you are an individual and have bought a place on one of our training courses/workshops, once you have paid for the event you have seven days to cancel your booking and receive a full refund as long as the event has not commenced.  After this, we do not offer refunds in the event of a cancellation on your part, or a failure to complete the course/workshop. Please read the event description carefully and email Helen Harding,  [email protected] with any questions you have before buying so you can ensure you are making the right decision to purchase.

In the case of training courses/workshops commissioned by organisations, separate terms and conditions apply which will be communicated directly to you.

8.11     Cancellation of Training Courses/Workshops by Us

On occasion, unforeseen circumstances may make it necessary for Helen Harding Ltd to cancel an event and accordingly we reserve the right to cancel events where appropriate.  In such circumstances, you will be given as much notice as possible and we will either refund the full event fee or, if you request, move the event to an alternative date.  Liability for any losses other than the event costs will not be accepted.

8.12     Ending the Contract

Unless provided for elsewhere in these terms and conditions on supply, the contract between us will terminate on fulfilment of the Service you have purchased.

If the Service you have bought is an ongoing service or subscription, we will tell you during the order process when and how you and we can end the contract.

8.13     Price and Payment

The price for the Service will be the price indicated on the order page or the shopping basket area of the website at the time you placed your order, or the agreed price for bespoke Services as set out in the invoice to you.

In the event of any invoice not having been paid when due we reserve the right to suspend providing Services and to decline to provide any further services. We reserve the right to charge interest if payment is not made within 1 month of the due date on the invoice. In this situation, interest will be charged on a daily basis at 8% over the Bank of England base rate and will accrue from the date falling 1 month after the due date.

We accept payment methods listed on the website at the time your place your order. You must pay for the Service at the time of purchase unless specifically agreed otherwise with us in writing.

8.14     Limitation of Our Liability

We need to protect our business and manage risk associated with providing products of services for sale. The content of this paragraph 8.14 aims to do just that, but we do not exclude or limit our liability for anything that cannot be excluded or limited by English law, such as our liability for personal injury or death caused by our negligence or for fraud.

To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all conditions, warranties, representations or other terms which may apply to our site or any content on it, whether express or implied.

If we fail to comply with these terms of supply or fail to use reasonable care and skill, we are responsible to you for any loss and damage caused by us, provided that such loss or damage is foreseeable or obvious that it will happen. We will not be liable to you for any loss or damage, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, even if foreseeable, for any of the following arising under or in connection with the contract between us for supply of the Service:  

  • loss of profits, sales, business, or revenue;
  • business interruption;
  • loss of anticipated savings;
  • loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation; or
  • any indirect or consequential loss or damage.

You must follow any instructions or manual provided with the Service and any other care or implementation advice we may give you. We may include disclaimers within the Service where we need to draw your attention to specific areas requiring us to limit our risk. We cannot accept liability for any damage caused by your failure to follow the advice provided.

Subject to the above, our total liability to you shall be limited to the purchase price paid by you for the Service.

Nothing in these Terms of Supply will affect your statutory rights as a consumer that may not be legally excluded.

8.15     Other Terms of Supply

The legal contract for the supply of our Service is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

These terms of supply, in this paragraph 8 set out the entire agreement between us in relation to the Service we provide to you. They supersede any and all prior agreements, communications and proposals.

If a court finds part of these terms of supply unlawful, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

These terms of supply are governed by the laws of England and Wales and you and we have agreed to submit to the jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales.
