Cancellation and RESCHEDULING

Contacting us. To exercise your rights under this section 6, you must tell us in writing by email at kneatacademytraining@kneat.com

Change of mind. If you are a consumer enrolled in a public open day course, you have 14 days from the purchase date to tell us by email of your decision to cancel your booking and request a full refund, provided that you have not accessed the course or the course materials. After the 14 day period, or if you have accessed the course or the course materials, you will no longer be entitled to a full refund, and you will not be allowed to transfer your enrolment to another person or to another course. If the course starts within the 14 day period you will still have the right to cancel and we will refund you a proportionate sum, but you must pay for the value of the service that was provided to you up to the point you cancel (for example, our administration costs, cost of materials and the amount of tuition time used).

Cancellation by you. Without limiting section 6.2 above, depending on the type of course you have paid for and how much advance notice of cancellation you give us, you may have a right to cancel your enrolment in an open day course and request a refund or a transfer to another date, as further described in this section:

Notice given by you (before start date of the first session of the course) Applicable process
More than 7 calendar days You can choose either:

• for us to transfer your enrolment free of charge to the next available date(s) for the same course; or

• to receive a full refund of the course fee paid by you.

Between 7 calendar days and 48 hours You can choose either:

• for us to transfer your enrolment free of charge to the next available date(s) for the same course; or

• to receive a full refund less an administration fee of 50% (plus VAT) of the course fee paid by you.

Less than 48 hours No transfers or reschedules permitted. No refund is payable for cancellation.

 

If you would like to transfer your place on an open day course to another person, you must tell us by email. If you notify us more than 7 days before the start date of the first session of the course there will be no charge. If you notify us less than 7 days before the start date of the first session we will charge you a €50 administration fee.

Rescheduling and cancellation by us. We have the right to reschedule the dates and timing of a Kneat Academy open day course or individual session at any time by giving you notice to the email address you provided during enrolment. You are not entitled to request any full or partial refunds for any rescheduled open day course or individual session. We have the right to cancel a Kneat Academy open day course at any time by giving you notice to the email address you provided during enrolment. In this case, we will try (but do not guarantee) to transfer you to an alternative course, subject to your payment of any applicable difference in course fees where the new course is more expensive. If this is not possible, or you do not wish to take up our offer to transfer, we will refund to you the fees you have paid for the open day course cancelled by us.

Your responsibilities. You must attend all Kneat Academy open day courses, meet all requirements, and pass all assessments and testing to successfully complete an open day course and be eligible for certification. We are not responsible if you fail any course requirements or assessment. It is up to you to ensure you give sufficient time to allow you to complete the course. You are not entitled to receive any full or partial refunds as a result of you failing any requirements or assessment for a course or as a result of you failing (for any reason) to attend or participate in any element of a course. We are not liable for any costs or expenses incurred by you in the event of cancellations or rescheduling of any course.

SOME FINAL TERMS

We may change these Terms or any other policies and rules at any time. If we make a change we will provide you with notice by posting a notice explaining the change on our website. If you do not agree to the updated Terms, you will not be able to enrol or participate in a Kneat Academy open day. These Terms (including any additional terms that we provide when you engage with Kneat Academy), are the only agreement between you and us regarding enrolments onto the Kneat Academy open day courses and supersede all previous agreements, representations, warranties and understandings between you and us in that respect.

These Terms are personal to you and there are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms. You are not allowed to assign, novate or transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone unless we agree in writing in advance. We may assign, novate or transfer any or all of our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation without your consent and we will tell you in writing if this happens.

If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your violation of these Terms, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and we may take any relevant steps against you at a later date. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines any provision of these Terms to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it will be deemed deleted, but that does not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Terms.

The formation, interpretation and operation of these Terms and any matters or disputes arising out of or in connection with them (whether contractual or non-contractual), are governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Ireland. The courts of Ireland have exclusive jurisdiction on any matter or dispute (whether contractual or non-contractual) arising out of or in connection with these Terms. If you are a consumer resident in the EU, you will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the member state in which you are resident. Nothing in these Terms affects your rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of local law.

If you are a consumer and wish to complain about your online purchase, you may be able to use the European Commission’s online dispute resolution (ODR) platform, which you can access at ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
