CANCELLING, MOVING PLACES AND REFUNDS
Once a class has been booked and paid for, the contract is not cancellable by the customer. We are unable to offer any refunds for any reason if you are unable to attend. This includes if you cancel a place at any time for any reason or if you make a mistake in booking.
Due to the popularity of classes, we cannot move your place on a class to another date after you have booked so please ensure you can attend that date.
(The Cake Decorating Company strongly advises that students arrange insurance to cover unforeseen events which may prevent them from attending their class and seek to cover any class cost or any travel and accommodation costs that have been incurred. Students are advised to research companies who provide insurance to cover the position if you cancel your place. For example, www.cancelsure-insurance.co.uk. We do not recommend Cancelsure as a provider for you as you must make your own decision as to which insurance company to use.)
Taking out insurance is particularly important during the winter months when the likelihood of unfavourable weather and associated travel disruption is higher.
In the unlikely event that we have to cancel your place on a class, we will offer an alternative date(s) to you and if no alternative date is made available by us, we will provide you with a full refund of the cost of your class. Our liability is limited to the cost of the class place only. By purchasing a class, you accept that our liability is limited to the cost of the class place and cannot be greater than £(highest class cost). To the maximum extent permissible in law, The Cake Decorating Company excludes all liability for loss (whether direct, indirect, economic or consequential loss) however incurred by the customer, arising from any act or omission or failure by The Cake Decorating Company, its owner, employees or contractors in connection with the class.
We cannot be responsible if a tutor cancels a class as this event would be outside of our control.
You accept that you cannot make a claim for costs of other arrangements you may have made in order to attend a class whatever they may be. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes costs of transportation, accommodation or anything else.
In the event a class is cancelled by us due to bad weather such as snow, we will use best endeavours to reschedule your class place to another date and/or offer you a voucher so you can rebook for a date of your choice in the future.
In exceptional circumstances, if we have to cancel your class place for any reason which we consider appropriate (at our sole discretion), we will offer you a transfer to another class date.
We reserve the right to change the class content at any time.
All information given in courses whether online or face-to-face (or in any other way) is based on our opinion only and should not be taken as advice in any sense at all. Our opinion is nothing more than an opinion. By purchasing a class place, you accept that this is opinion only and not advice and you will not rely on any information given as advice. You should consult a competent professional such as an accountant, lawyer or tax adviser.
USING DESIGNS LEARNT IN CLASS
You will be taught many different designs at The Cake Decorating Company classes. By purchasing a class place, you are free to copy all of these designs for the purpose of your own cake making.
If you run classes or intend to run classes, you are strictly prohibited from using the designs you learn in our classes to advertise or run a class which is very similar. It is our intention to teach you skills which will enable you to come up with your own class designs, therefore offering the market place something novel. If you run classes or intend to run classes in the future, you may not use lesson plans, class format, outlines, structures, photographs, teaching techniques, pre class information, notes, wording from The Cake Decorating Company classes or website for your own classes or the promotion of your own classes.
TRANSPORT OF CAKES
We are in no way responsible for your cake after you leave the premises. Should anything happen to your cake during transportation, that is your responsibility and we bear no responsibility for you cake or other belongings once you have left the classroom. Leaving the classroom means once you have left the room and entered the hallway to exit the premises.
PROPERTY ON PREMISES
You bring all personal property onto our premises at your own risk and The Cake Decorating Company will not be held responsible for any loss or damage. We bear no responsibility for your property at time when you are on the premises or after.
BOOKING CLASSES FOR OTHER PEOPLE
You can book classes for yourself or for other people. If booking for someone else, please ensure you tell us of the name and email address of the person who will be attending. In default of this, all information will be sent to you rather than the attendee.
If we are not notified of the person attending the class, we reserve the right to refuse entry to a person who is not recorded as the attendee at or during the booking process.
We do not allow children under 18 to attend classes. With prior consent from The Cake Decorating Company and the tutor teaching the class, a child under 18 may be able to attend a class as long as there is one full paying adult per child. The adult would also have to purchase a place on the class in order to accompany the under 18 year old.
Once you have purchased a class, this class cannot be resold by you under any circumstances. The attendee must the person notified to us at the time of booking and held on our records. If you buy a place as a gift for someone else, please notify us at the time of booking.
All class bookings are bound by these terms and conditions whether made online, over the phone, via a PayPal request or in person. We refer you to the booking page which clearly states that by making a booking you are bound by the terms and conditions. We also notify you of this fact when you book in person.
