TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please read these terms of service (“terms”) carefully before you make the decision to purchase a product, service or event (collectively “Services” and individually a “Service”) offered by Lydian Stone, a trading name of Lydian Stone Limited (herein referred to as “Lydian Stone”) through lydianstone.com (herein referred to as “Lydian Stone Site”).
Lydian Stone is a global training provider that specializes in providing training workshops and events via the following delivery methods:
- Training Workshops / Public Training – Training events sold on a per ticket basis, facilitated in person within a select number of city center locations across both the UK & US by a member of the Lydian Stone training team.
- Online Learning Programs – Training events sold on a per ticket basis, facilitated in a virtual online environment via conference call and screen-sharing technology by a member of the Lydian Stone training team.
- Bespoke Training – Training events sold on a per event basis, facilitated at the customer’s place of business by a member of the Lydian Stone training team. By nature, these programs are tailored specifically to meet business objectives.
Whilst the conditions laid out within these terms are consistent across all delivery methods, where variances exist, these are clearly marked where relevant.
Once a booking has been made it will be subject to the following terms:
Each booking has a “cooling off” / cancellation period of 7 days during which you may cancel your booking and receive a full refund. This period begins from the date the booking was made. Thereafter, you are not entitled to a refund.
In the event that you wish to cancel your booking outside of this 7-day period you will be able to move your booking to the next available date at an additional charge (including any applicable local tax such as, but not limited to, value added tax) – see Section 7: Right to Cancel / Transfer for associated obligations.
If you place a booking during the “Early Bird” period, you are required to clear the full balance listed on the invoice prior to the final date of the “Early Bird” period. Failure to do so will result in a charge for the full price of the event with the discount removed.
Lydian Stone will not be liable for damages, including the return of any payments, in the event that you are unable to attend a course by reason of strikes, lockouts, labor disputes, embargoes, acts of God (including, but not limited to, weather conditions that prevent travel or make travel difficult or dangerous), civil commotion, fire or other casualty or other causes beyond the reasonable control of Lydian Stone.
If you are under 18, you may purchase products or services only through a parent or guardian. You agree that billing and registration information you provide on the Lydian Stone Site will be accurate and complete. Lydian Stone and its affiliates reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in their sole discretion.
CANCELLATION OF PROGRAMS (Lydian Stone)
Lydian Stone holds the right to cancel any training session at any point. In this event, Lydian Stone will offer yourself or a colleague a course credit to attend an event run at a later date. Lydian Stone also has the right to change the training venue and trainer up to 7 days prior to the event date to a location within walking distance of the original location.
Lydian Stone reserves the right to change the date on which a course is offered.
Lydian Stone strongly recommends that you do not book travel or accommodations until 10 days prior to the date of a course. In the event that you should book travel or accommodations prior to this 10-day period and the course date should thereafter be changed you agree that Lydian Stone will not be liable for any costs incurred by you by reason of the change in the date of the course.
These terms are effective for all bookings, even if payment has not been received at the time of booking, and also include any person who is a “no-show” on the day. Lydian Stone reserves the right not to confirm a booking unless payment is made prior to the training course date.
RIGHT TO CANCEL / TRANSFER
These terms are effective for all bookings, even if payment has not been received at the time of booking, and also include any person who is a “no-show” on the day. Furthermore, Lydian Stone reserves the right to not confirm a booking.
In the event that you wish to cancel your booking, you will not be entitled to a refund. If you are no longer able to attend the course date, you have the option to substitute the delegate(s) with other member(s) of your team who may be available to attend the scheduled training at no additional cost. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Alternatively, if you wish to transfer the booking to a later course date, the transfer must take place as soon as possible and for a course date scheduled to take place within six (6) months of the cancellation date. All transferred bookings regardless of training delivery method are subject to “Transfer Fees”.
Transfer fees are a percentage of the cost of the original booking, which will be charged in addition to the original booking fee. The percentage is dependent on the period of notice you provide to Lydian Stone. Transfer fees are applicable to all rescheduled bookings, whether or not payment for the original booking has been received.
If the period prior to scheduled course start date is:
- Greater than 20 working days – no charge to transfer
- Less than 20 working days – 50% of your booking fee to be charged in addition to your original payment
- Less than 10 working days – 100% of your booking fee to be charged in addition to your original payment
These charges reflect the associated costs incurred and the associated effort of rescheduling by date of cancellation, respective to course start date. Once the course has started, any requests to cancel throughout the training period will be associated with a 100% cancellation fee, should the delegate wish to transfer their attendance to another scheduled date.
