b) Should a course for any reason be cancelled or rescheduled, STEPMaths will strictly only be liable for the value of the course ticket.
c) There are no refunds available for students who do not attend the course.
4. Cancellations or Variations by the Client and STEPMaths
a) Any notice of cancellation by the client of a booking or part of a booking must be made in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless the course in question is advertised as non-refundable, there is a 7 day cooling off period during which you are entitled to receive a 100% refund if you wish to cancel your booking for an in-person course. After 7 days, no refund will be made. If you book within 14 days of the start of an in-person course, then you are not eligible for a refund.
b) On the rare occasion that is becomes necessary, STEPMaths reserves the right to alter the course date, venue and presenters indicated at the time of booking. In such circumstances, we would endeavour to provide a substitute of equal standing.
c) STEPMaths reserves the right to cancel a course due to very low enrolment or any last-minute unforeseen circumstances. Any participant enrolled on that course will be contacted immediately, and refunded the full course amount paid.
d) All bookings are non-transferable.
e) Any promotional price is valid only for the event date offered at the time of booking.
f) After a student has attended the first course bought as part of a bundle, no refunds will be available for cancellations of the subsequent courses within the bundle.
g) If two courses have been purchased within a bundle and STEPMaths changes or cancels the dates for one course within this multibuy package, resulting in the student no longer being able to attend, then the customer will be charged the advertised price on the date of purchase for the unchanged course and the remainder will be refunded.
5. Online Courses and Fair Use Policy
i) No refunds are available for online courses.
ii) All subscriptions will continue until cancelled. If you wish to cancel your subscription, it is your responsibility to do so. Refunds will not be issued for forgetting to cancel a subscription.
iii) When you cancel your subscription, your order status will be changed to “pending cancellation”. This means you will have access to the material until the time when you would have been charged again, after which you will lose access. Cancelling your subscription is irreversible.
.iv) Once your subscription is cancelled, you will immediately lose access to its contents.
v) The amount of time between a monthly billing interval is one month. This means 30 days for some months (April, June etc.), 31 days for others, and then 28 or 29 days for February.
vi) If a subscription is purchased on the last day of the month, recurring payments will continue to be charged on the last day of the month. Likewise, if the day a payment is normally charged is not the last day of the month, but it is on the 29th or 30th day of the month, and the next payment is due in February, then that payment will be charged on the last day in February.
vii) Fair Use Policy: free trials exist to allow students to sample courses they are interested in purchasing; they are intended for the student named in the account only; STEPMaths reserves the right to take steps to prevent the abuse of free trials.
viii) Users are responsible for the security of their own passwords, which are not to be shared with any other party.
6. Special circumstances
Any student who disrupts classes with inappropriate or unacceptable behaviour will be required to withdraw, in which circumstance, no fees will be refunded and there will be no further liability of STEPMaths. A zero tolerance policy applies towards any verbal and physical abuse to STEPMaths staff and fellow participants.
7. Accommodation and travel
a) STEPMaths courses are non-residential.
b) Students are expected to make their own travel arrangements to and from the venue.
STEPMaths does not provide food or drink at any courses and participants should make their own meal provision. Students may bring a packed lunch and there are a variety of restaurants and coffee shops in the vicinity of the course venue, should participants wish to purchase food for lunch.
9. Force Majeure
STEPMaths cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or expense resulting from any delay, variation or failure in the provision of services or facilities relating to any programme or course arising from circumstances beyond STEPMaths’s reasonable control, including (but not limited to) earthquake, flood, storm, act of God or of public enemies, national emergency, invasion, insurrection, riots, industrial disputes, boycott, interruption of services rendered by any public utility, or interference from any local, national or supra-national government agency or official. The above limitations will not apply insofar as any liability may not be excluded under the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977.
STEPMaths shall not be liable for the cancellation of any booking or any unfulfilled Part thereof or for effecting partial delivery if performance by STEPMaths is prevented or delayed whether directly or indirectly by any cause whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of STEP Maths. whether such cause existed or was foreseeable at the date of acceptance of the Customer’s Order by STEPMaths or not and without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing any cause shall be deemed to prevent, hinder or delay STEPMaths if STEPMaths is thereby prevented, hindered or delayed from fulfilling their commitments whether to the Customer or to third parties.
10. Students’ property
While STEPMaths takes all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety and security of students at the course venue, it cannot accept responsibility, and expressly excludes liability, for loss or damage to students’ personal property (including computer equipment and software), including any financial or other consequential loss, where such loss or damage is as a result of theft, fire, flood, computer virus or any cause related to venue, computer facilities, or any other cause, except where such loss or damage is caused by STEPMaths’s negligence. It is recommended that students insure personal property against the risk of loss and damage.
11. Acts by other students and non-members of the organisation
STEPMaths cannot be held responsible for any injury to a student, or financial or other loss or damage resulting from such injury, or for damage to property, caused by any other student, or by any person who is not an employee or authorised agent of STEPMaths.
12. Financial loss
STEPMaths cannot accept responsibility for any financial or other loss suffered by a student as a consequence of any of the matters in respect of which liability is excluded within these terms and conditions.
