  3. Payment
    You must pay my charges for the Services as agreed in writing between us. Unless agreed otherwise, all my charges are exclusive of any applicable value added or other tax. I reserve the right to suspend the Services if my charges are overdue for payment by you.
  4. Your Obligations
    You agree that you will:
    ensure that you and your staff and representatives (if any) co-operate with me in relation to the provision of the Services;
    promptly give me such information as I may reasonably need to provide the Services and you shall be responsible to me for the accuracy of such information;
    allow me access to your premises, data or personnel and use of such equipment which may be necessary for me to deliver the Services (if access to the premises is required to deliver the Services and you do not provide that access I may charge you additional costs incurred by me as a result);
    pay my charges for the Services.
  5. Intellectual Property
    I warrant to you that no material will be provided by me as part of the Services which infringe any third party Intellectual Property rights. You warrant to me that no material will be provided by you to me for use in the Services which infringe any third party Intellectual Property rights.

  6. Extent of Liability
    Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as restricting or excluding the liability of either party for death or personal injury resulting from its negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
    Subject to the immediately preceding sub-clause, I shall be liable to you under this Agreement in respect of all direct loss or damage caused by my acts or omissions or those of my employees, agents or sub-contractors, other than Excluded Loss (whether or not the possibility of such loss arising on a particular breach of contract or duty has been brought to my attention at the time of making this Agreement). In this clause the expression “Excluded Loss” means all special loss and all third party claims, lost management time, economic loss or other loss of business, production, revenue, profit, goodwill or anticipated savings, anticipated tax mitigation, loss of data, others whether arising in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise.

    For the avoidance of doubt, in no event shall either party be liable to the other for any indirect or consequential loss of any nature and howsoever caused.
  7. Termination and consequences of termination
    You have the right to exercise termination of my services if you are within the first 14 days of purchasing my services (see section 8).
    In the event of a no fault for either coaching or speaking services whereby you do not give me the required cancellation notice, then the service can be rescheduled but this is only in a no fault case. Failing to give notice and it is not a no fault will mean no reschedule or refund for the missed session or talk.
    Either you or I shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement immediately by written notice to the other if the other commits any material breach of this Agreement and, in the case of a breach capable of remedy, fails to remedy it, within 21 days after receipt of a written notice giving full details of the breach and requiring it to be remedied.
    Either of us can also terminate this Agreement if the other is the subject of a bankruptcy order
    (or the equivalent in any other jurisdiction) or the other becomes insolvent or make any arrangement or composition with, or an assignment for the benefit of, its creditors or if any of its assets are the subject of any form of seizure. If either of us is a company, the other can terminate this contract forthwith if the first party goes into liquidation, either voluntary or compulsory, or if a receiver or administrative receiver or administrator is appointed.
  8. Cancellation of pre-booked services
    If you are a consumer for the purposes of the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, you have 14 days after the day that I email you to cancel the provision of my Services. If you wish to cancel after the 14 days or after any guarantee given we have started the services, you must pay me for the services provided up until the time. If you cancel in accordance with this clause, I will return any money that you have pre-paid to me in respect of Services not yet delivered by me. The amount returned by me will be in proportion to the services that have been supplied in comparison with the full coverage of the Services to be delivered under this Agreement.
  9. Refunds
    Where you are entitled to a refund from me after you have cancelled the services, your refund will be made within 14 days of your telling me that you have changed your mind.
  10. Confidentiality
    Each party shall keep secret and treat as confidential all information obtained from the other which is either stated to be confidential or could reasonably be regarded as confidential and shall not disclose such information to any person other than its employees, agents or sub-contractors where such disclosure is required for the performance of the party’s obligations under this Agreement. This clause shall not extend to information which was already in the lawful possession of a party before this Agreement or which is already in the lawful possession of a party before this Agreement or which is already public knowledge or becomes so subsequently (other than as a result of a breach of this clause) or which is trivial or obvious. The obligations of confidentiality under this clause shall continue after the end of this Agreement.
