The client acknowledges that it has not relied on and shall not be entitled to rescind the contract or to claim damages or any other remedy on the basis of any representation, warranty, undertaking or statement which is not set out in these conditions. These conditions may not be varied or waived except with the express written agreement of the Company.

All prices are as stated and are exclusive of VAT which will where appropriate be charged at the current rate.

Cancellations or postponements of course bookings:
We know that life often throws up the unexpected and so we offer as much flexibility on our courses as we commercially are able to.
However, when you book a place on a course it means that we can’t offer that place to someone else, as is the case with theatre bookings, and so that means that we need to put a limit on changes and cancellations.
(a) Confirmed cancellations or postponements received and confirmed via e-mail, facsimile or in writing more than 14 days prior to the date of the course incur an administration charge of £95.00 (+VAT) or 10% of course cost, whichever is the greater.
(b) Confirmed cancellations or postponements received and confirmed via e-mail, facsimile or in writing less than 14 days prior to the date of the course are payable in full.
(c) Bookings made within 14 days of the date of the course may not be cancelled or postponed without incurring a 100% cancellation charge.
(d) Bookings from private individuals received within 14 days of the date of the course need to be paid for at the time of booking. We will contact you for this payment upon receipt of the booking form.
(e) Substitutes may be made at any time without penalty. Acuity should be informed of any changes.
(f) Non-payment does not constitute a cancellation
(g) In line with your statutory rights, bookings made by private individuals for personal use have 14 days from the date of booking to cancel without charge.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment for each course is to be received no later than 14 days prior to the course start date.
Cheques should be made payable to ‘Acuity Training Ltd’ and sent to Acuity Training Ltd, The Surrey Technology Centre, 40 Occam Road, Guildford, Surrey GU2 7YG, BACS credits should be directed to: Acuity Training Ltd, A/c No. 75052695, Sort code: 60-09-21, Natwest, 151 High Street, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 3AH.

Provision of service: 
The Company reserves the right to cancel, postpone, alter or delay any booking.

Differing Needs:
It is the responsibility of the Client to advise the Company of delegates with any requirements that need additional arrangements to be made. The Company cannot accept responsibility for such delegates unless it has stated in writing that it is able to accommodate those needs.

Scheduled courses: 
(a) Please note that for scheduled courses trainers will aim to deliver the modules specified in each scheduled outline. In the event of a mixed ability course some delegates may find the pace and content unsuitable. Whilst Acuity endeavours to ensure delegates attending a scheduled course are of similar ability, it is the clients’ responsibility to determine that each course is the correct level for their delegate(s). Acuity cannot accept responsibility if any part(s) of the scheduled course outline are not covered.
(b) In a case where the delegate does not have the prior level of knowledge required for the course they are attending, we reserve the right to ask them to leave the course.
(c) In the case where you are the only delegate booked on a scheduled course we reserve the right to reduce the duration of the course to ½ the original duration e.g. a 2-day course will become a 1-day, a 1 day course will become a ½ day course. Alternatively, we will give you the option to be transferred to our next available course.

Exam payments are non-refundable although substitutions can be made at any time.

Holding Accounts: 
All holding accounts have a maximum expiry date of one year from the date of invoice. Any unused revenue is non-refundable. Acuity cannot accept responsibility for any unused revenue within this period.

The Company supports its clients in the utmost good faith. However, due to the complexities of any consultancy work undertaken the Company accepts no liability and offers no guarantees for its consultancy and associated work.

If as a result of contact made during their business with the Company, a client subsequently and within one year of the last booking, recruits a member of the Company’s staff whether then employed by the Company or not, a compensation fee of 50% of the final annual salary of that member of staff is payable to the Company.

Invoicing Details: 
As we are not able to accept any delay in invoice payment it is important that you tell us about any special arrangements you require for your invoices.

Software For Live Online Courses:
It is the responsibility of the client, not the Company, to ensure that:
(a) They have a fully functional version of the software required for their training on their PC in advance of their training commencing.
(b) Their internet connection/speed is stable enough to attend without interruption.
Training cannot be delayed or cancelled in the event that a client has not organised this in advance of a course.
For the avoidance of doubt, the 100% money-back guarantee that we offer is also not available in this circumstance.
The recording of online training sessions is not permitted under any circumstances.

Post-Course Support
We offer six months of post-course support on the topics that you cover during your course.
To access this support you need to email us a clear explanation of the issue (ideally including screenshots) and we will discuss it with your trainer and come back to you as soon as possible.
Please note this is subject to fair use restrictions and isn’t a consultancy service. We don’t provide broader advice or undertake development work on your behalf.
