5.4 Difficulty.

You must communicate this to our staff within 10 minutes of the class commencing.

6.4 Cancelled classes. In the unlikely event that an instructor cannot deliver a class (for example due to illness) or is running more than 15minutes late for a class (for example due to problems with public transport) we will use our reasonable endeavours to source an alternative cover instructor, however, we cannot guarantee that someone will be available at short notice. For the avoidance of doubt, you will not be entitled to a refund if the original instructor is not available to deliver the class you have booked but a cover instructor is provided.
6.5 In the event that we are unable to source a cover instructor to deliver a class we will contact you by email and text message immediately to inform you of a class cancellation. In such event you will be offered the choice of an alternative class of your choice on the same day (subject to availability) or a free class voucher.

7.2 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products or services is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

7.3 Collection by you. If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, you can collect them from us at any time during our opening hours as listed on our website.

If you do not collect the goods from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 10.2 will apply.

If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.9 Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:

We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments.
7.11 We may suspend supply of services for health reasons. If you advise us of a change in your state of health or fitness which may mean that it is not safe for you to continue using our services, we may suspend membership pending conclusive medical advice.
8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have paid for, whether there is anything wrong with what we provided, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
8.1.1 If what you have paid for is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get goods repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 12;
8.1.2 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
8.1.3 If you have just changed your mind about the product, see clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods. In relation to our provision of services to you, where you have started using the services, we are able to continue providing the services to you, even though any cooling off period may still be running. You acknowledge that by starting to use the service or by accepting our supply of the service, you waive your right to cancel during the cooling off period;
8.1.4 In all other cases (if we are not at fault and you are not exercising your right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
8.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for the following reasons set out below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided (though we shall not be obliged to refund you for any services used by you or supply by us to you) and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
8.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 6.2);
8.2.2 we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
8.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.4 we have suspended supply of the products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
8.2.5 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3 Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund (the ‘cooling-off period’). This right is subject to the services exclusion described at clause 8.1.3 above. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
8.4.1 digital products after you have started to download or stream these;
8.4.2 services, once these have been started, even if the cancellation period is still running;
8.4.3 products sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, once these have been unsealed after you receive them;
8.4.4 apparel that for health protection or hygiene reasons would be inappropriate to resale or reuse; and
8.4.5 sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them.
8.5 How long do consumers have to change their minds? How long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
8.5.1 Have you bought services (for example, membership or a package of classes)? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have started the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. Please see clause 8.1.3 for more information.
8.5.2 Have you bought goods (for example, apparel)?, if so you have 14 days after the day you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods.
8.6 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change their mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed. A contract for goods or digital content is completed when the product is delivered, downloaded or streamed and paid for. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end the contract in these circumstances, just contact us to let us know. Where our contracts run monthly from the date you first signed up, to give valid notice you should give one month’s written notice from your next monthly renewal date, such that if your renewal date is the 10th of the month, you must give 30 days’ notice no later than the 10th day of the previous month for the 30 day notice to apply to the month that follows. This clause shall not apply if you have agreed to a fixed term contract in which case you cannot terminate the term early.
9. How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind)
9.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
9.1.1 Email. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
9.2 Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You must either return the goods in person to where you bought them, post them back to us at Tram Depot, 38-40 Upper Clapton Road, London E5 8BQ or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. Please email us at email@example.com for a return label or to arrange collection. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind you must send off the goods within 14 days of telling us you wish to end the contract.
9.3 When we will pay the costs of return of goods. We will pay the costs of return:
9.3.1 if the goods are faulty or misdescribed; or
9.3.2 if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong.
In all other circumstances (including where you are exercising your right to change your mind) you must pay the costs of return.
9.4 What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
9.5 How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment.
9.5.1 The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
9.5.2 Where the product is a service, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
9.6 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible. If you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind then:
9.6.1 If the products are goods and we have not offered to collect them, your refund will be made within 14 days from the day on which we receive the product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the product back to us. For information about how to return a product to us, see clause 9.2.
9.6.2 In all other cases, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling us you have changed your mind
10. Our rights to end the contract
10.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
10.1.1 you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
10.1.2 you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the products, for example, payment details, address or health and fitness information as required by the physical activity questionnaire; and
10.1.3 you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the products to you or collect them from us.
10.2 You must compensate us if you break the contract. If we end the contract in the situations set out in clause 10.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
11. If there is a problem with the product
How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can contact our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 38-40 Clapton Tram Depot, Upper Clapton Road, London, England, E5 8BQ. Alternatively, please speak to one of our staff in-store.
12. Your rights in respect of defective products
12.1 We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. See the box below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the products. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
12.2 Your obligation to return rejected products. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject products you must either return them in person, post them back to us or (if they are not suitable for posting) allow us to collect them from you. We will pay the costs of postage or collection. Please email us at email@example.com for a return label or to arrange collection.
13. Price and payment
13.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT where applicable) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
13.2 VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, and may pass on changes in VAT at our sole discretion, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
13.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
13.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with most major credit and debit card providers. Please refer to our website for more information. When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:

13.4.2 For classes, you must pay in full at the time of booking through our online booking system, unless the terms of your membership, bundle or any other valid promotion provide otherwise.

If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

19.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
