Training Terms & Conditions


These terms and conditions apply between the person, firm, company or other entity making a training course booking (“you” or “your”) and Paris Smith LLP a Limited Liability Partnership registered in England and Wales under number OC308962 whose registered office is Number 1 London Road, Southampton, Hampshire, SO15 2AE (“we”, “our” or “us”) for the provision of the training course requested (“Course”). Please read them carefully as they contain important information. By booking a Course you agree to be bound by these terms to the exclusion of all other terms. If you do not agree to be bound by these terms we will be unable to accept your booking.

Your booking via Eventbrite is an offer to us to attend a Course which is subject to our acceptance in writing. A binding contract between you and us will only be formed when written confirmation of acceptance is sent by us to you (whether or not it is received) using the contact details you provided at the time of booking.

2.1 You will pay us the advertised fee per delegate attending the Course.
2.2 Payment of fees must be received in full and in cleared funds at the time of booking.
2.3 Fees for each Course, where applicable, are correct at the time of publication. We reserve the right to change fees at any time but changes will not affect bookings which have already been confirmed by us.

If you cancel a Course booking, the full amount of the Course fee remains payable in full and no refunds will be given. You may however transfer any fees already paid to another Course within a period of 12 months from the date of cancellation.

Substitutions with employees from your organisation are welcome at any time.

5.1 We may (at our sole discretion) change the format, speakers, participants, programme or any other aspect of the content of the Course at any time and for any reason without liability. If we change a speaker and you wish to apply for a refund as a result of this, such refunds shall be at our reasonable discretion.
5.2 We may change the venue for a Course upon reasonable prior notice without liability, provided that we shall endeavour to ensure that the new venue is within a reasonable distance of the original venue.

6.1 We may change the date for a Course at any time for any reason. We shall give you as much notice as possible if we change the date for a Course. Subject to clause 6.2, where we change the date of a Course we shall offer you the option of attending any rearranged Course or claiming a refund in respect of your fees received by us.
6.2 Where the date for a Course is changed by us due to cancellation by the venue, contractor or supplier failure, or any other event outside our control, and you elect not to attend the rearranged Course, you shall be entitled to a refund to the extent that we are able to recover the fees claimed from the venue provider, or contractor or supplier (as applicable), or in the event of other events outside our control, through insurance, but not otherwise.

No permissions in the Materials are granted to you and no part of any of the Materials may be reproduced in any form or for any purpose without our prior permission.
7.2 The Materials have been designed to be an integral part of the Course solely for the benefit of the delegates attending the Course. The Materials do not necessarily stand on their own and are not intended to be relied upon for giving specific advice. Delegates acknowledge that the Materials may quickly become out of date as the law is constantly changing.

8.4 If we do not receive payment in full for your group booking at least 48 hours prior to the mutually agreed Course date, we reserve the right to cancel delivery of the Course and to charge you a reasonable sum in respect of our time and costs already incurred (such amount not to exceed £750 plus VAT).

9.1 Our Courses are designed to give delegates a general overview of the relevant area of law and practice. They are not a substitute for professional legal advice which takes account of your specific circumstances.
9.2 To the fullest extent permitted by law, we shall not be liable by reason of breach of contract, negligence or otherwise for any loss or damage (whether direct, indirect or consequential) occasioned to any person acting or omitting to act or refraining from acting upon the Materials or presentation of the Course or, except to the extent that any such loss or damage does not exceed the Course fees, arising from or connected with any error or omission in the Materials or presentation of the Course. Nothing in this clause 9.2 shall be deemed to exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
