Description
All descriptions, specifications, advertising, and overview information displayed on our website in relation to the Services are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Services to be provided. They will not form part of the contract between us. The Services delivered may differ in non-material respects from the information provided on our website.

We may make any change to the specification or design of the Services which are required to conform with any applicable safety, statutory or regulatory requirement, or do not materially reduce their quality.

Price of the Services
Unless stated otherwise, any prices stated on our website are exclusive of value added tax.

All prices are subject to change without prior notice.

Our website contains a large number of Services and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. We will not be obliged to supply the Services at the incorrect price, even if we have accepted your order.

Payment
We must receive payment in full for all the Services you order before your order can be processed. Any card payments for the Services will be taken through our third party payment provider (as we shall nominate from time to time). A Credit Card transaction charge is applied when receiving payments made on a credit card at 1.8% on the total payment amount for a personal card payment and 2.1% on the total payment amount for a commercial card payment plus VAT at prevailing rates.

Payment will be received by us upon confirmation from such provider that the transaction has been completed. BACS and cheque payments may be accepted where agreed in advance and the Services will only be provided once cleared payment has been received into our account.

Cancellation for online courses
You may cancel any order for Services (or part thereof) and receive a refund in respect of such at any time before such Services (or part thereof) are accessed. You will not be able to cancel an order for any part of the Services once they have been accessed.

If you do not access the Services during the six (6) months following the date on which they were ordered, we reserve the right to cancel the order and withdraw your access to such Services. You will not receive a refund if the order is cancelled as described in this paragraph.

The Services will be deemed to have been “accessed” when the relevant online course is commenced or any associated materials are loaded or viewed by someone utilising your account.

Cancellation for classroom based courses
Focale Training reserves the right to cancel or alter the dates or provision of service, the venue and the individual or organisation providing the service. In the event of cancellation, bookings will normally be transferred to the next available course unless the client specifically requests otherwise. If a booking is cancelled by the client the following fees will be payable:

NOTICE GIVEN           % OF FEE CREDITED ON CANCELLATION
More than 28 days           100%
15 – 28 days                        50%

We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All job applicants, employees, others who work for us and those who are trained by us will be treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds.

Decisions about recruitment and selection, promotion, training or any other benefit will be made objectively and without unlawful discrimination.

We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good management practice, it also makes sound business sense. Our equal opportunities policy will help all those who work for us to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be utilised fully to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.

This policy applies to all those who work for the organisation and those being trained.
