From time to time, it may be necessary for us to review these terms so it is recommended that you check this page regularly. Once changes have been made, they will be posted on the website and continued use of the site or training materials constitutes acceptance.

1. Scope of Agreement:
Participation in each and any course, lesson, class, workshop or event (“Event”)- as confirmed in an email received before and after the Event – implies the Participant’s agreement with the Terms of that Event.
2. Handling of Personal Data:
Depending on the Event, Personal Data, such as the Participant’s name and contact information, may be shared with Trusted Third Parties (including, but not limited to Instructors, School Staff and Sponsors) for purpose of fulfilling contractual obligation with the Participant.
You are encouraged to familiarise yourself with your rights contained within the Sale of Goods Act 1979, Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete. You expressly agree that the Company is not responsible for any loss or damage arising from the submission of false or inaccurate information.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for certain reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons. You expressly agree that the company cannot accept any liability for loss or damage arising out of such cancellation.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud, an unauthorised or illegal transaction is suspected, or default of payment on instalment options.
4. Service Content:
- Start time, duration, materials, software and platform used may vary from Event to Event;
- Paid Events must be paid for in advance by the specified method;
- If a paid Event is cancelled or postponed due to the circumstances of Cross Media Limited or a particular Instructor or Host (including event quality significantly deteriorating due to the Host’s IT infrastructure or bad internet environment), the Participant will have the choice of an automatic refund or switching to an alternative date;
- If the Participant cancels after payment due to their own reasons subject to Clause 5, the fee will not be refunded (likewise internet or IT problems experienced by the Participant because of their computer or internet connection are not the responsibility of Cross Media Limited or any Instructor); and
Participants will purchase or prepare the requisite materials following directions provided by the relevant Instructor or Host (except for instances where an Event fee covers the relevant materials).
All materials for an Event, if supplied by us, and an Event fee come with a 14 day money back guarantee. A request should be made within 14 days of enrolment and addressed to Cross Media Limited office in writing at which point we will refund the course fees minus an administration charge of £5. Should this 14 day period have expired, we, the company, will return any monies paid for Event materials or cancel any instalment packages as follow:
|Cancellation by a Participant*||Cancellation Charge|
|Within 10 days of Event start||50%|
|3 days of Event start||100%|
Any materials provided on an Event must be returned in their original condition without any modifications to receive a refund on a qualification. If these are not returned then Cross Media Limited reserves the right to refuse a refund, whether in or outside of the pre-Event 10 day period. Should a Participant have accessed tutor support, had any assignments marked or accessed over 50% of the online materials provided then a refund is not available and Cross Media Limited reserves the right to refuse a refund.
