However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the 14 day period is still running.

A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we may refund sums paid by you for services not provided but we reserve the right to charge (or retain, as the case may be) the following:

      If you cancel within 3 weeks of the start of your itinerary – 100% of the fee is payable.

  10. If there is a problem with the services
    1. How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the services, please contact us at contact@yourlondontutor.com.
    2. Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply services that are in conformity with this contract. See the ‘Consumer Rights Act 2015’ below for a summary of your key legal rights in relation to the services. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

      Consumer Rights Act 2015 says:

      – if a service is not carried out with reasonable care and skill, you can get some money back if we can’t fix the issues.

      – if you haven’t agreed a price beforehand, what you’re asked to pay must be reasonable.

      – if you haven’t agreed a time beforehand, the services it must be carried out within a reasonable time.

  11. Price and payment
    1. Where to find the prices for the services. The price of the itinerary you have ordered (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of the services are correct. However please see clause 11.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the prices of the services you order.
    2. We will pass on changes in the rate of 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, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    3. What happens if we got the prices wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the service’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the service’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.
    4. When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Visa (credit and debit cards), Mastercard (credit and debit cards), American Express, Apple Pay and PayPal. Full payment is required at the time of placing your order.
  12. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
    1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
    2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services including the right to receive services which are: as described and match information we provided to you and supplied with reasonable skill and care.
    3. We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
  13. How we may use your personal information
    1. How we will use your personal information. We will use the personal information you provide to us:
      1. to supply the services to you;
      2. to process your payment for the services; and
      3. if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar services that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
    2. We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so.
  14. Other important terms
    1. We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
    2. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
    3. Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
    4. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    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. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
    6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the services in the English courts.
