Terms and Conditions
1.1 Who we are: We are BeLiminal LLP, a limited liability partnership, with registration number OC407403 and registered address 65 Deacon Road, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, KT2 6LS (“BeLiminal”, “we”, “us” or “our”).
1.2 How to contact us: If you have any questions or complaints about your booking you may contact us by emailing us at [email protected]
1.3 How we may contact you: If we need to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address you provide to us at the time you make your booking.
2.1 What these T&Cs cover: These T&Cs cover the provision of the public training courses that we organise and which are available to book via Eventbrite or email (the “Courses” and, in relation to the specific public training course you are registering for, the “Course”).
2.2 Why these T&Cs are important: It is important for you to read these T&Cs carefully and to make sure you understand them because they set out the obligations between you and us.
2.3 “Writing” includes emails: In these T&Cs “writing” or “written” includes emails.
3.1 Any description of the Course which we provide (on our website, by means of online advertisement or otherwise) is provided for the sole purpose of giving you a general idea of the Course, its contents and objectives. Subject to any obvious error the price of the Course will be as provided by us on our website on the date your booking is made.
3.2 When you request us to book individual(s) on the Course (the “Delegate(s)”), whether by means of an online registration form (via Eventbrite) or by email (the “Booking Registration”) you are making an offer to us. Your offer is only accepted when we give you confirmation of our acceptance of your booking in writing (a “Booking Confirmation”).
3.3 A Booking Confirmation brings into existence a legally binding contract incorporating these T&Cs and the Booking Registration (the “Contract”).
3.4 The Contract will commence on the date of the Booking Confirmation and will continue until either (i) completion of the Course and provision of the auxiliary items, services and related materials that we agree to provide you in the Booking Confirmation (the “Services”) or (ii) termination in accordance with Section 9 of these T&Cs.
3.5 Where you are not an individual consumer (i.e. you are acting on behalf of a business) you acknowledge and agree that you have authority to bind such business.
3.6 Where you are not an individual consumer, the Booking Registration, the Booking Confirmation and these T&Cs constitute the entire agreement between you and us, supersedes any previous agreement or understanding and may not be varied except in writing. You furthermore acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise or representation made by us or on our behalf which is not set out in these T&Cs, the Booking Registration or the Booking Confirmation.
4.1 We will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Course and the Services meet the description set out in the Booking Confirmation in all material respects. We do however reserve the right to substitute Course trainers and, subject to Section 8.1.2 below, to reschedule or cancel the Course or to change the Course venue at any time prior to the Course. Wherever possible we will contact you in advance to tell you we are cancelling the Course unless an emergency requires us to cancel the Course on the day.
4.2 We will deliver the Course and the Services with reasonable care and skill.
4.3 Course Joining Instructions (“CJIs”): CJIs include venue details, course start/finish times, course information and pre-reading. CJIs are usually sent directly to Delegate(s) once their place on the Course has been confirmed. If working through another organisation (third party vendor) then we may provide CJIs to the hosting organisation if requested. This will be agreed when the Course is set up. Please note that, regardless of whom CJIs are sent to, we do require the names and email addresses of those attending certified training courses so that we can complete registration with the appropriate certification body on their behalf. See Section 10 for more details regarding privacy and data protection.
All intellectual property associated with the Course and Services (including any Course materials) is entirely owned by us or our external providers and is protected by international copyright law and applicable national laws. Except as may be expressly set forth in a separate definitive licence agreement mutually agreed by us we do not grant any licence under our intellectual property rights to you. No part of any Course materials may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise, or translated into any language, without our prior written permission. This Section 5 shall survive termination of the Contract.
6.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, you agree to pay the appropriate Course fees as set out on our website (together with any applicable VAT and taxes and without any set-off or other deduction) by credit card (via Eventbrite) or by bank (BACS) transfer into such account as we shall reasonably instruct. The Course fees include tuition on the Course training day(s), lunch, light refreshments and all relevant course materials. Exam fees, certification and initial membership fees are included for relevant courses. For the avoidance of doubt the Course fees do not include accommodation or transport costs.
6.2 Payment must be received by us at least 14 days before the Course start date. For bookings made within 14 days of the Course start date, payment must be made at the time of booking. Where you do not pay the appropriate Course fees in accordance with Sections 6.1 and 6.2 this will constitute a breach of the Contract and without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may be entitled to (e.g. taking legal action to recover any outstanding fees) we may refuse the Delegate(s) entry to the Course.
6.3 Where you are paying the Course fees by bank transfer an invoice for payment of the appropriate fees shall be sent to the address you provide (whether a physical address or an email address) at the time of booking and it is your responsibility to ensure the address provided is correct.
6.4 If we accept and process your booking and the Course is incorrectly priced and the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable we may terminate the Contract, refund you any fees you have paid and cancel the Delegate(s) place on the Course.
7.1 All warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.
7.2 Nothing in these T&Cs limits or excludes our liability for death or personal injury resulting from negligence or for any damage or liability incurred by you as a result of our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
7.3 Our entire liability under or in connection with the Contract shall not exceed the amount of the fees paid by you to us in relation to the Course and, subject to Section 7.2 we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Contract, for:
7.3.1 Any loss of profit, business, sales or revenue;
7.3.2 Loss of business opportunity;

Please note however that, subject to Sections 8.1.4 and 8.1.5, where you have given consent to the Course taking place within the Cancellation Period, you will lose the right to cancel your booking on the Course.
8.1.2 If, in accordance with Section 4.1, we reschedule or cancel the Course or change the Course venue, you have a right, if you provide us with written notice within 14 days of our notification to you of the change, to cancel your booking and to receive a full refund of any fees paid or the right to transfer the Delegate(s) onto another scheduled course offered by us (subject to Section 8.2 below).

8.4.1 If payment for your booking was originally made by credit card any refund will be made back to the same card; and
8.4.2 If payment was made by bank transfer a refund will be made by direct bank transfer to a bank account you elect.

9.2 Termination in accordance with Section 9.1 shall be treated as a cancellation by you and you will be required to pay the cancellation sums specified in Section 8 (as appropriate).
9.3 Any termination of the Contract pursuant to this Section 9 shall be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies a party may be entitled to under the Contract or at law and shall not affect any accrued rights or liabilities of either party nor the coming into or continuance in force of any provision which is expressly or by implication intended to come into or continue in force on or after such termination.
