CONDITIONS

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall affect the Buyer’s statutory rights as a Consumer.

Acceptance of delivery of the Services shall be deemed conclusive evidence of the Buyer’s acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

Any variation to these Terms and Conditions (including any special terms and conditions agreed between the parties) shall be inapplicable unless agreed in writing by the Supplier.

Any special conditions applying to the provision of the Services are set out in the Schedule to this agreement.

Any complaints should be addressed to the Supplier’s address stated in the Contact Us Page

 

ORDERING

All orders for Services shall be deemed to be an offer by the Buyer to purchase Services pursuant to these Terms and Conditions and are subject to acceptance by the Supplier. The Supplier may choose not to accept an order for any reason.

Promotional and discount codes are to be used only once where applicable and may not be combined with any other offers. Should an offer code be used more than once, or is deemed by the Supplier to abuse the fair usage policy then the Supplier can withdraw, withhold or cancel the promotional code at any time.

 

PRICE AND PAYMENT

The price of the Services shall be that stipulated on the Website. Except where indicated otherwise, the price is inclusive of VAT. The shown price excludes delivery charges.

The total purchase price, including VAT, if any, will be displayed in the Buyer’s shopping cart prior to confirming the order.

After the order is received the Supplier shall confirm by email the details, Services together with information on the right to cancel if the Buyer is a Consumer.

Payment of the price plus VAT and delivery charges, if applicable, must be made at the point of ordering.

Where applicable, if any payment is not paid on time or any payment is rejected or refused, the amount owing will be treated as overdue and the Supplier will be entitled immediately to cease or suspend the provision of any Service or further until payment has been received.

 

PERFORMANCE OF SERVICES

The Supplier shall perform the Services with reasonable skill and care. However, where applicable, the Supplier does not guarantee that the Services will be uninterrupted, or error-free or that any data generated, stored, transmitted or used via or in connection with the Services will be complete, accurate, up to date, received or delivered correctly or at all. The Supplier may have to suspend the Services for repair, maintenance or improvement. If so, the Supplier will restore them as quickly as is reasonably possible.

 

RIGHTS OF SUPPLIER

The Supplier reserves the right to periodically update prices on the Website, which cannot be guaranteed for any period of time. The Supplier shall make every effort to ensure prices are correct at the point at which the Buyer places an order.

The Supplier reserves the right to withdraw any Services from the Website at any time.

The Supplier reserves the right to withdraw or suspend any promotional or offer code at any time.

The Supplier shall not be liable to anyone for withdrawing any Services from the Website or for refusing to process an order.

 

AGE OF CONSENT

Where Services may only be purchased by persons of a certain age the Buyer will be asked when placing an order to declare that they are of the appropriate legal age to purchase the Services.

If the Supplier discovers that the Buyer is not legally entitled to order certain Services, the Supplier shall be entitled to cancel the order immediately, without notice.

The Supplier shall use its reasonable endeavours to meet any date agreed for delivery. In any event time of delivery shall not be of the essence and the Supplier shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the Buyer or any third party arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date.

Title in the Goods shall not pass to the Buyer until payment of the price has been made in full.

 

CANCELLATION

The Buyer may cancel any order for Services for any reason up to the point of payments made by the Buyer shall be refunded in full within 28 days. The Buyer may cancel any Services at any time before seven working days has passed from the day after the Contract was made and any payments made by the Buyer shall be refunded in full within 28 days. If, however, the Supplier starts to perform its side of the Contract with the agreement of the Buyer before the Buyer exercises this right to cancel, the right to cancel is lost.

Where a claim of defect or damage is made, the Services may have to be cancelled within the best before date or use by date on the Service. The Buyer shall be entitled to a full refund.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Except as may be implied by law where the Buyer is dealing as a Consumer, in the event of any breach of these Terms and Conditions by the Supplier the remedies of the Buyer shall be limited to damages which shall in no circumstances exceed the price of the Services and the Supplier shall under no circumstances be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential loss whatever.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall exclude or limit the liability of the Supplier for death or personal injury resulting from the negligence of the Supplier or that of the Supplier’s agents or employees.

 

WAIVER

No waiver by the Supplier (whether express or implied) in enforcing any of its rights under this contract shall prejudice its rights to do so in the future.

 

FORCE MAJEURE

The Supplier shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations if the delay or failure results from events or circumstances outside its reasonable control, including but not limited to, acts of God, strikes, lock outs, accidents, war, fire, failure of any communications, telecommunications or computer system, breakdown of plant or machinery or shortage or unavailability of raw materials from a natural source of supply, and the Supplier shall be entitled to a reasonable extension of its obligations.

 

SEVERANCE

If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the provisions hereof shall continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed with the invalid illegal or unenforceable provision eliminated.

 

CHANGES TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The Supplier shall be entitled to alter these Terms and Conditions at any time but this right shall not affect the existing Terms and Conditions accepted by the Buyer upon making a purchase.

 

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.

Guidelines for students and employers

It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that students are free from any condition which would affect their capability to undertake their chosen course, and that they have the aptitude to cope with an intensive course of study. We welcome students with disabilities but it remains their employer’s responsibility to ensure that they are appropriately supported in their workplace.

Operational Security Professionals Group Ltd would welcome in advance, for setup purposes, notification of any assistance that a student is likely to need during the running of the course, if we are hosting the course. Our company premises are fully compliant with all Equalities legislation and we also audit any Third-Party venues for full compliance to the UK Equalities Act 2010.

If it is felt that the student doesn’t meet the learning outcomes of the course and or assessment process and is referred, they will be offered a free assessment; if this can be delivered at no-cost to Operational Security Professionals Group Ltd. If certification and accreditation is awarded by an outside body, then fees to resit exams and referral coursework might be levied plus an administration fee. Any further training or coaching over and above that provided on the course may be charged for.
