4.1 These terms set out in this section 4 shall govern your relationship with us in relation to any workshop or classroom training (“Workshop”) which is booked by you through the Website.

4.5 We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the Workshop that you order before your order can be accepted. Payment by you of the price for the On-Site Course represents an offer on your part to purchase a course, which will be accepted by us only when a confirmation of acceptance is sent by us. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us.
4.6 Once you have booked a Workshop, we shall use our endeavours to offer you alternative courses or dates if you or any Delegates are unable to attend on the agreed booking date. However, we are unable to offer any refunds in such a case.
4.7 All rights, including copyright, in the materials or content of any Workshop are owned by or licensed to The Specialists Hub Ltd. Any commercial exploitation of any material or content obtained from a Workshop, other than for your own personal or business use, is prohibited without our express written permission.
4.8 The recording, copying, loan, unauthorised hire, public showing or broadcasting of our materials and courses is prohibited. You agree to indemnify us from all costs, claims, loss or damage we may sustain as a result of breach by you or by a Delegate of this clause.
4.9 Delegates should enquire as to the content of the course before booking and ensure that the course is suitable for their purposes, and that they possess the required experience or qualifications (if any are necessary for the course these will be stated on the Website). Whilst we take all reasonable care and diligence in designing suitable courses, the courses are not to be taken as technical or legal advice and Delegates should not rely on the content of any course to act or to not act in any particular manner.
4.10 Delegates are expected to act at all times in accordance with the instructions of the course provider. Delegates are also expected to act with decorum and with appropriate concern for the safety and welfare of the course providers and other delegates. In the event that the course provider believes that any Delegate is not acting appropriately, the course provider may at his or her discretion remove such Delegate from the course and no refund will be provided.
4.11 We reserve the right to cancel an On-Site Course for any reason (such as there being insufficient Delegates registered for the course). In such a case, we will provide a full refund to you.

6.2 Whilst The Specialists Hub is pleased to introduce you to these External Course Providers, you should be aware that we are not a party to any contract between you and the External Course Provider for the provision of your course or content, and we will therefore not be liable to you in relation to that contract. In the event you are dissatisfied in any way, your remedy will be only against the External Course Provider. You are however welcome to provide us with your feedback in relation to any External Course Provider you may have been introduced to through our Website, and we will take your comments and feedback into account.

6.4 Whilst we have made all reasonable efforts to ensure that we provide courses and content from suitable and professional trainers and that they provide to us accurate information and descriptions of their courses and content, we are not able to guarantee the accuracy or suitability of any particular course or content offered by an External Course Provider through the Website.
