Please read our terms carefully before using our site to make a booking. By making a booking you agree to the event terms set out below.
1. Information about us
Information that we are required to provide under regulation 6 of the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 and under rule 7 of the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct 2007 is set out on the legal and regulatory information page.
2. How to make a booking using this website
These are the steps you need to take to conclude a contract with us:
(1) Make sure you have read and understand our terms
It is your responsibility to read our terms carefully before you make your booking. Please save/print and retain our terms for future reference.
(2) Select the seminar you wish to attend
In the events section of our website, select the seminar you wish to attend by clicking on “view event” button. You will be shown further details of the seminar you have selected.
Complete the relevant fields of the online booking form headed “register me for this event” and click on the “Send” button to book your place.
(3) Provide details of your booking
You will be asked to provide certain information we need to process your booking, such as your contact details and the number of places you would like to book.
You can cancel your booking and return to the main events page at any time by clicking the “cancel” button, or clear the form using the “clear form” button. To go back to a previous page, use the back button on your browser. To edit your details just click on the text you wish to change and re-type it. Some information (marked ‘required’) is mandatory and must be completed so that we can process your booking. Other information you can decide whether or not to supply, such as your title, job title, fax and organisation. We would like this extra information to help us understand our audiences and improve our seminars, but we do not require it.
You can book up to 10 places at once by selecting the number of places from the drop-down box. When you click the “next” button, you will then be asked to supply contact details of any other attendees. Please first draw their attention to our terms and make sure you have their permission before putting their details on the form. In particular, please draw their attention to paragraph 9 below (Our liability to you) and let them know that to opt-out of mailings they should email email@example.com or tell us on the feedback form at the seminar.
You will now be asked to read and agree to our terms.
(4) Wait for confirmation of your booking
Once your order is complete, you will receive an email with confirmation of your booking. Please save or print and retain this confirmation for future reference. On receipt of our confirmation we will have made a binding legal contract with you.
3. Other information about the Contract
We can only conclude the contract with you in English and not in any other language.
We will not file the concluded contract between us online and you should therefore save/print and retain copies of each element of the contract.
4. Provision of the seminar
We may at any time make any changes to the seminar which are necessary to comply with any applicable safety or other statutory requirements, or which do not materially affect the nature or quality of the seminar.
We may, due to reasons beyond our control, have to provide substitute speakers or make other changes to the seminar. We will, if practicable, notify you in advance of any changes to speakers but cannot guarantee to do so.
Unless the seminar is free, please pay for it before the day (within 30 days our invoice if we send you one) if you do not pay online at the time of booking.
You may make changes to delegate names at any time without charge but we would appreciate it if you could give us at least one working day’s notice before the seminar if you can.
Please notify us of any dietary or access requirements you would like us to take into account.
Please comply with any other instructions and notices given to you in relation to the seminar, including any health and safety notices and other local policies and procedures that apply to the venue.
The prices payable for seminars, including any applicable VAT, are set out on our website.
6. Your right to cancel your contract
You may cancel your booking at any time up to and including the day of the seminar without charge, but please put your cancellation in writing (by post, fax to +44 (0)191 204 4098 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, we will reimburse any sum paid by you or on your behalf as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of cancellation.
7. Our rights to cancel the contract
We may cancel the contract between us if:
· we have insufficient places at the seminar to accommodate your booking; or
· we decide to cancel the seminar for any reason (including without limitation, reasons beyond our control, or due to lack of demand or the unavailability of any speaker or facilities).
Once we have notified you that we are cancelling your contract, we will reimburse any sum paid by you or on your behalf as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of cancellation.
8. Ownership of rights
Unless otherwise stated, the property and any copyright or other intellectual property rights in any material presented or supplied by us in connection with the seminar shall belong to us, or our licensors.
Except as permitted by law, you shall not be entitled to re-use or reproduce that material without the owner’s written consent. You are not permitted to make recordings of our seminars without our written consent. No part of the slides or handout materials may be reproduced in any form without our written consent.
9. Our liability to you
9.1 Please note that our seminars are informative not advisory, and you will not become our client merely by attending them. If you need advice about anything a seminar covers, you need to seek it from us separately.
9.2 Except as expressly and specifically provided in these terms, all warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from this contract.
9.3 Subject to paragraph 9.4, but otherwise to the fullest extent permitted by law, Ward Hadaway shall not be liable (including any liability for the acts or omissions of its employees, agents and sub-contractors):
(a) for any Loss occasioned to any person acting, omitting to act or refraining from acting in reliance upon the seminar material or presentation of the seminar; or
(b) by reason of any delay or failure to perform any of our obligations if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond our reasonable control.
9.4 Ward Hadaway’s liability for Loss arising from or connected with any error or omission in the seminar material or presentation of the seminar shall be limited to the price paid (if any) for the seminar.
9.5 “Loss” means loss of income or revenue, loss of business, loss of profits or contracts, loss of anticipated savings, loss of data, loss of goodwill, wasted management or office time, costs or expenses payable to any third party and any other loss or damage of any kind, however arising, whether direct or indirect and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise.
9.6 Nothing in this contract shall exclude our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for fraudulent misrepresentation.
9.7 If you are a consumer (that is, you are acting for purposes which are outside your business), your statutory rights are not affected by these terms.
If any part of these terms and conditions is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude or limit our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected.
A person who is not a party to this contract has no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of this contract but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party that exists or is available apart from that Act.
The contract documents listed under paragraph 3 above constitute the whole of our agreement relating to the provision of the seminar to you by us and may not be varied except in writing between the parties. All other terms, express or implied by statute or otherwise are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Note that we may revise these terms from time to time. Please read the terms each time you book a seminar through our site.
Ward Hadaway’s written consent may only be given by a partner of Ward Hadaway.
The contract between us shall be governed by and construed in all respects in accordance with the law of England and Wales, and you agree to submit any dispute which arises out of or in connection with it or its use to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
