9.16 Behaviour. We or any person in authority can terminate your Trainings if your behaviour or that of any delegate(s) is likely in the reasonable opinion of ourselves or any person in authority to cause distress, damage, danger or annoyance to other customers, other delegates, employees, property or anyone else or if any delegate(s) is or appears to be unfit to participate in the Trainings. In this situation the delegate(s) concerned will not be able to complete the Trainings and we will not be liable for any refund, compensation or any expenses or costs you/the delegate(s) concerned have to pay or incur. We cannot accept liability for the behaviour of others in your accommodation or any persons taking part in any event or activity associated and/or in the same environment which forms part of your Trainings or if any facilities or services are removed as a result of their action.

We, the venue provider and any other supplier reserves the right within our/their reasonable opinion to terminate the Trainings in question of any delegate(s) due to misconduct. Full payment for any damage or loss (reasonably estimated if not precisely known) caused by you or any delegate booked onto a course by you must be made direct to the venue owner or manager or other supplier or to us as soon as possible. If the actual cost of the loss or damage exceeds the amount paid where estimated, you must pay the difference once known. If the actual cost is less than the amount paid, the difference will be refunded.

You will also be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us or any of our suppliers and all costs incurred by us / the supplier (including our own, the supplier’s and the other party’s full legal costs) as a result of your actions or the actions of a delegate booked onto the training course by you.

You agree to ensure that all delegates comply with all event timetables. Failure to keep to the timetables may result in either discontinuation of the course or cancellation of the course. We will not be liable for any refund, compensation or any costs that may be incurred by you/any delegate(s) as a result.

You agree to ensure that all delegate(s) act at all times in a safe responsible manner and comply with all safety procedures, listen and be present at all safety and information briefings which are relevant to the trainings booked, make supervisors or any persons in authority immediately aware of any equipment or site deficiencies or concerns, dress suitably for any event as advised by our suppliers and observe and obey all laws, requests, conditions of use of any supplier.

9.17 Health. If any delegates have an existing medical condition, allergies or disability which may affect the Trainings you must let us know the details of such condition before you make your booking. If in our reasonable opinion we believe that your chosen Trainings are not suitable for the delegate(s) concerned taking into account the delegate(s) medical condition or disability or the delegate(s) are not being accompanied by someone who could provide all the assistance the delegate(s) may reasonably require where it is reasonable for us to require this we can refuse to accept the booking. If we find out after you have made the booking that a delegate(s) has an existing medical problem or disability and is not being accompanied by someone who could provide all the assistance the delegate(s) may reasonably require as referred to above and you have failed to give us this information at the time of booking, we reserve the right to cancel the booking without refund.
