Terms and Conditions for the Supply of Services (External Online Training Events)

We are pleased you have decided to use my services or resources – please read the following important terms and conditions before you commit to using them.

This contract sets out:
• your legal rights and responsibilities;
• my legal rights and responsibilities; and
• certain key information required by law.

The intention is that it will bring clarity to our relationship and provide a good solid foundation for our working relationship, so that we can focus on the important things for you! Please let me know if there are any clauses that you do not understand or that contradict your understanding of my services.

In this contract:
• ‘I’, ‘me’, ‘we’ or ‘my’ means Simona Hamblet, and
• ‘You’ or ‘your’ means the person buying or using my services and resources.

If you would like to speak to me about any aspect of this contract, please contact me at e-mail team@simonahamblet.com.

Under this agreement I provide leadership, management, and business training to individuals in relation to their careers (‘services’) on specific dates set in advance. My services are not suitable for domestic tasks or consumers and therefore consumer protection legislation does not apply to this agreement. This agreement is only for individuals attending training events hosted by me externally from your business and does not apply to training provided in-house for businesses (for which there are separate Terms and Conditions).

I am a sole trader and my trading address is 1 Eagle Road, Guildford, GU1 4HX.

1.1 If you buy services from me you agree to be legally bound by this contract.
1.2 If you use any of my free resources (for example podcasts, workbooks, discovery sessions or any other resources I may offer free of charge from time to time) you also agree to be legally bound by this contract as appropriate, excluding the clauses relating to payment.
1.3 When buying any services or using any resources you also agree to be legally bound by:
1.3.1 my website terms of use and privacy policy;
1.3.2 extra terms which may add to, or replace, some of this contract, for example any specific written contract between us;
1.3.3 specific terms which apply to my services, for example service descriptions which may be set out on the webpage for those services or in email correspondence between us.

All these documents form part of this contract as though set out in full here.

2 Ordering services from me
2.1 Below, I set out how a legally binding contract to buy services between you and me is made:
2.1.1 You place an order either through a relevant site, ie Eventbrite by clicking on the relevant payment link, by transferring payment to my bank account or by making a paypal payment. Placing you order and making payment does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.
2.1.2 Any quotation given by me before you place an order for services is not a legally binding offer by me to supply such services. Any prices set out in a quotation remain valid for 7 days.
2.1.3 When you decide to place an order for services with me, this is when you make a legal offer to buy such services from me.
2.1.4 I may contact you to say that I do not accept your order, for example if I do not think my services are right for you or there has been a mistake in the pricing or description of the services, or my circumstances have changed since I gave you the quotation for the services.
2.1.5 I shall only accept your order when I confirm this to you by sending you a confirmation email or start to provide the services, whichever happens earlier. At this point:
(a) a legally binding contract will be in place between you and me, and
(b) I shall start to carry out the services as set out in the programme description on this website or in a services description agreed between us.

3 Carrying out the services
3.1 The services will be carried out with reasonable care and skill.
3.2 We shall use reasonable endeavours to carry out the relevant training on the dates provided at the date of your buying the services and, in carrying work in relation to the services, but time of performance is not of the essence of this contract. This means where we miss a timescale agreed with you, as long as we have used reasonable endeavours to meet the timescale, this will not entitle you to terminate the contract with us or ask for a refund or any form of compensation.
3.3 All services must be taken on the dates you have booked or they will expire.
3.4 Where, in any offering of the services, there is more than one training course or support session available or you have booked supplementary calls on offer, we will do our best to accommodate a change of date for you, providing we are given at least 7 days’ notice. For much of our training, the groups are small (6-8 people) and any last-minute postponements can therefore have an impact on the dynamics of the session. If you give us less than 7 days’ notice, fail to turn up for the services, or any part of them, or have already rearranged once, you will not be able to reschedule or be entitled to a refund or any compensation for missing it.
3.5 In order to avoid confusion and the possibility of missed or delayed communications, our main forms of communication are limited to emails and telephone calls. Although we may respond to other forms of communication, we can only guarantee a timely response to these forms of communication.
3.6 Our carrying out of the services might be affected by events beyond our reasonable control. If so, there might be a delay before we can restart the services, having made reasonable efforts to limit the effect of any of those events and having kept you informed of the circumstances. We shall try to restart the services as soon as those events have been fixed. Examples of events which might be beyond our reasonable control include internet failure or other IT problems, unexpected issues arising with the venue, or if one of our team is ill.
3.7 To the maximum extent permitted by law, we exclude any and all implied warranties in respect of the services, except as expressly set out in this agreement.

4 Your responsibilities
4.1 You will pay the price for the services as set out on the booking site (ie Eventbrite) or on the invoice provided.
4.2 You will provide us promptly with such information and assistance (and ensure that any information is complete and accurate) as we reasonably need to provide the services.
4.3 If you are in breach of this contract, we reserve the right to suspend or curtail the services as we see fit.
4.4 You agree:
4.4.1 to obtain and maintain all necessary licences and consents (where relevant) and comply with all relevant legislation in relation to the receipt by you of the services; and
4.4.2 to ensure that you have the right to share any information or materials you might choose to share with us, or other delegates, including any Intellectual Property Rights.
4.5 If the performance of our obligations under these terms is prevented or delayed by any of your acts or omissions, or those of your agents, subcontractors, consultants or employees, we shall not be liable for any costs or losses incurred by you that arise directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
4.6 You warrant that you have the right to disclose the confidential information and any materials to us and to authorise us to use it for the purpose of providing the services.

5 Prices and payment
5.1 All prices quoted are exclusive of VAT.
5.2 The price for the services is set out on the relevant booking site, our website, or in the invoice sent to you.
5.3 We require full payment at the time of booking for online bookings, or within 48 hours where an invoice is submitted, but in any event and in all circumstances, we require full payment in advance in order to provide the services.
5.4 The fees are non-refundable except, where we cancel the services (other than under 10.3 below), you are entitled to a partial refund for services which you have paid for in advance and which you have not received.
5.5 In view of our clear no-refund policy, we do not tolerate any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit or debit card company. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, without you seeking repayment from us first: you shall be in breach of this contract; you agree that you will owe us first the sum charged to us by our merchant service provider and secondly a sum based on time spent at £100 per hour in dealing with your breach; and we reserve the right to report the incident to credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as non-payment on your account which could have a negative impact on your credit rating.
5.6 If any of your payments are not paid on the due date above, your space on the training event will be released, and we can no longer guarantee a place at the training event.
5.7 We shall be entitled to charge to you any sums reasonably incurred by us in recovering outstanding sums from you including professional and collection agency fees.

6 Intellectual property
6.1 In this agreement, ‘Intellectual Property Rights’ means patents, rights to inventions, copyright and related rights, trade marks, business names and domain names, rights in get-up, goodwill and the right to sue for passing off, rights in designs, database rights, rights to use, and protect the confidentiality of, confidential information (including know-how), and all other intellectual property rights, in each case whether registered or unregistered and including all applications and rights to apply for and be granted, renewals or extensions of such rights and all similar or equivalent rights or forms of protection which subsist or will subsist now or in the future in any part of the world.
6.2 If we provide you with any materials during the services, whether digital or printed, any Intellectual Property Rights in those materials belongs to us and unless we agree otherwise you can only use those materials for your own internal business purposes to obtain the benefit of our services. You may not use such materials for any other purpose and you may not share them with third parties.

7 Confidential Information
7.1 All information shared by you will be kept strictly confidential, except when releasing such information is required by law and/or where I consider it necessary to do so because of concerns of risk to yourself or others.
7.2 During the provision of the services you may become aware of confidential information shared by other delegates. You agree to keep strictly confidential any information shared by delegates and not to share it with any third parties. You will not use the confidential information of any delegates of any training or other group sessions, for your own benefit except with the explicit consent of that delegate.
7.3 For the purpose of these terms, confidential information means any information one party, or a delegate, supplies to the other which it reasonably expects to be kept confidential including but not limited to client or attendee lists or information, contacts, financial data, sales data, supply sources, business opportunities for new or developing business plans and models, or trade secrets.
7.4 Each party shall keep the confidential information disclosed to it confidential and, except for the purposes of providing the services, or with the other party’s prior written consent, shall not:
7.4.1 use or exploit the confidential information in any way; or
7.4.2 disclose or make available confidential information in whole or in part to any third party.
7.5 The obligations in 7.2 will not apply to confidential information which:
7.5.1 has ceased to be confidential through no fault of the other party;
7.5.2 was already in the possession of the recipient before being disclosed by the other party;
7.5.3 has been lawfully received from a third party who did not acquire it in confidence; or
7.5.4 is required to be disclosed by law.
7.6 Neither of us shall use the other party’s confidential information for any purpose other than to perform our obligations under this contract.

8 Personal Data and Data Processing
8.1 In this clause:
8.1.1 ‘Data Protection Legislation’ means as applicable and binding on you and/or us i) in the United Kingdom, the GDPR, and/or any corresponding or equivalent national laws or regulations; (ii) in member states of the European Union: the GDPR, and all relevant member state laws or regulations giving effect to or corresponding with any of them; and (iii) any applicable laws replacing, amending, extending, re-enacting or consolidating any of the above Data Protection Legislation from time to time;
8.1.2 ‘Personal Data’, ‘Data Subject’, ‘Data Processor’ and ‘Data Controller’ shall bear the defined meanings allocated to them in Data Protection Legislation; and

9.2 The terms of this contract will apply to any re-performed services.

10 End of the contract
10.1 If a services description specifies a length of time for services to be provided, then subject to clause 10.3 below, the services will terminate at the end of that timeframe.
10.2 Either you or we may terminate the services and this agreement immediately if:
10.2.1 the other party fails to pay any amount due under this agreement on the due date for payment and remains in default not less than 14 days after being notified to make such payment;
10.2.2 the other party commits any other material breach of this agreement and, in the case of a breach capable of being resolved, the breach is not resolved within 30 days of a written request to do so. The written request must expressly refer to this clause and state that the contract for services and this agreement will be terminated if the breach is not resolved; or
10.2.3 the other party commits or threatens to commit or is threatened with any act of insolvency under the Insolvency Act 1986.
10.3 If this agreement is ended it will not affect our right to receive any money which you owe to us under it and it will not operate to affect any provisions that expressly or by implication survive termination.
