If the Course’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 materials provided to you.

18.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. You must use one of the available payment means on the Website to pay for your order. You must pay the Purchase Price to place an order with us.

22.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this.

22.2 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

22.6 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.
