Introduction

  1. These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) set out the basis on which you may browse and use our website, available at https://cambridgespark.com (the “Site”) and the services offered through it including your booking onto any of our training activities: workshops, series of workshops, summer schools or similar (the “Courses”) and your participation on our Courses.

  2. If you browse and/or use the Site, you are automatically accepting the parts of these Terms that apply to your browsing and use of the Site. The parts of these Terms that apply to your booking onto and participating in Courses will only apply to you once you have clicked to accept them when you place your order.

Booking Courses

  1. Individual places on a variety of our Courses can be booked through our Site. We currently use a third-party event management platform. Our third-party event management platform accepts payments through methods outlined in the provided order form when you make a booking for a Course. You will be required to fill out some registration information and will be required to submit your payment details in order to confirm your place on the Course.

  2. Once you have clicked to confirm the booking and payment for the Course has cleared we will send you a confirmation email to confirm your place on the Course at which point a binding contract between you and us will have been formed. After that time you may only cancel or re-schedule Courses in accordance with our cancellation policy set out in the below Cancellations section of these Terms.

  3. The prices applicable to our Courses will be as advertised on the Site. Unless otherwise shown, Advertised prices are stated inclusive of any booking fees charged by the event management platform.

  4. If we make any pricing errors on our Site we reserve the right to change the price of any Courses to the correct price at any time. If you have already booked onto a Course we will notify you of the pricing error as soon as possible and you will either be offered the chance to confirm your place on the Course at the correct price or you will be offered a full refund.

Participation in Courses

  1. Courses will take place at the date and time advertised on the Site. If there are any changes to the venue advertised on the Site for the Course, you will be notified of the changes via the email you provide us when booking the Course.

  2. It is your responsibility to make sure you arrive at the correct venue in plenty of time prior to the commencement of the relevant Course. We cannot be held responsible for any failure to arrive at the correct venue at the correct date and time and you will not be entitled to a refund or be able to book onto a substitute course if you fail to attend any Courses.

  3. You will be required to bring your confirmation email and may be asked to provide a form of identification when you attend any Courses booked with us. If you wish to change the name of the person who is attending the Course you may do so at any time provided you notify us in writing no later than 5 working days prior to the date of the Course. Failure to do so may result in the attendee being refused entry onto the Course.

  4. You will be required to use your own computer equipment required to take part in the Course. We may provide you with Computer equipment if requested. We will provide you with all the necessary additional materials required for you to take part in our Courses.

  5. Although we will try to avoid making any changes to our advertised Courses once we start to take bookings, it may sometimes be necessary to change the time, date or the venue of a Course from time to time and we reserve the right to do this at any time in our absolute discretion. We will provide reasonable notice to you prior to the Course date of any changes to the time, date or the venue that we need to make. If you are unable to attend any Course that you have already booked onto and paid for as a result of any change that we make you will be entitled to a full refund or offered a substitute place on the same Course on another date at your election (subject to availability).

  6. We reserve the right to refuse any attendee on any of our Courses at any time and for any reason. If you are refused attendance other than for a breach of these Terms you will be refunded any Course fees that you have paid to us for the relevant Course.

  7. You agree not to solicit or attempt to solicit, whether directly or indirectly the services of any of our employees, consultants, representatives or other persons involved in providing our Courses at any time after placing your booking for a Course for up to 12 months after your attendance on that Course.

Cancellations

  1. You may only cancel any Course booking made through the Site and obtain a full refund if you notify us in writing of your wish to cancel within 3 days of booking your place on the relevant Course and provided that the Course has not already taken place.

  2. If you are no longer able to attend a Course that you have booked onto you will be permitted to re-schedule the Course to a different date (subject to availability) without any further charge, provided you notify us in writing not less than 14 days prior to the date that the Course you initially booked onto is due to take place.

  3. If you need to re-schedule a Course, you may choose to re-schedule to a different Course. If you reschedule to a different course, you will be required to pay the price difference if the price of the other Course is higher. You will be refunded the price difference if the price of the other Course is lower.

  4. If you need to re-schedule a Course that is due to take place in less than 14 days’ time we reserve the right to charge a re-scheduling fee of 50% of the price of the booked Course in order to secure your booking on an alternative date for the same Course (the “Rescheduling Fee”).

  5. We reserve the right to cancel any Course at any time in our absolute discretion but we will offer a full refund or provide you with an alternative Course date at your election if we choose to cancel a Course you have already booked onto.
