Terms and conditions: tailored events
These terms and conditions are a legal agreement between the organisation or individual ordering the training event (“Client”) and the National Centre for Social Research (”we” or “us” as the context requires).
By providing a formal confirmation of acceptance of our training proposals the Client agrees to be bound by these terms alone.
All events are non-residential but lunch and refreshments are provided on each day.
We reserve the right to change the content and timing of the event, the speakers and the date and venue due to reasons beyond our control. In the event of such a change we will try to offer an alternate equivalent provision or we will provide a refund but we will not be liable for any additional losses incurred.
Costing rates are reviewed and normally revised on 1st July each year. Estimates, unless otherwise specified, are based on current rates and will be adjusted to cover rate increases for any training undertaken from July each year.
NatCen Learning will submit invoices within ten days of the completion of the training taking place. Payment of invoices is required within one calendar month from the invoice date. Where a series of training activities are required then the proposal will state explicitly when invoices will be submitted through the life of the contract.
We are entitled to charge interest on any sum unpaid from either one month after the issue date of an invoice or the date of the course whichever is the later at the rate of 2% per annum over the NatWest Bank base rate./
Where an event is cancelled by the Client, in writing, more than 6 weeks in advance of the scheduled delivery date then we will charge the Client 20% of the original agreed price to cover staff time and other expenses incurred in preparing the event.
Where an event is cancelled in writing between 2 and 6 weeks of the scheduled delivery date then we will charge 70% of the original agreed price to cover staff time and other expenses incurred in preparing the event. If cancellation is within 2 weeks of the scheduled delivery date then we reserve the right to charge the full cost.
Where possible we will try to accommodate reasonable requests for rescheduling events. We will hold the price of rescheduled events taking place within 12 months of the original date unless the rescheduled date falls into the our next financial year (NatCen’s financial year runs from June-July). In these circumstances, the quoted price may need to be adjusted to reflect new charge out rates.
