2.3 Where split payment options are available, each instalment must be paid on time, and failure to pay any instalment on time may result in the Trainer cancelling or amending the Services, in their sole discretion.
2.4 Payments are collected automatically through Stripe, the platform which hosts the payments. If the platform attempts to collect payment for the Services from the Client three times without success, then the Services are automatically cancelled, and the Client shall have no further access to the Services. In such circumstances, the Client shall remain liable to pay the full Price.
2.5 The Price will be paid at the time of booking and payment is not deemed to have been made until the Price has been paid in full. If payment is not made in full and within time the Services may be suspended and payment in advance may be required before the Services are re – commenced.

Time for performance
5.1 The Trainer shall use reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates (what does this mean?), but such dates shall be estimates only and time is not the essence of the contract.
5.2 Each party will keep the confidential information of the other party and any third party confidential and secret, and only use it for the purposes of supplying the Services or making proper use of the Services.

The Trainer shall be entitled to be paid for all Services delivered to the Client up to that point. The Trainer shall not be liable for any additional losses incurred by the Client in such circumstances.
Variations to the Services
5.6 Variations to the Services by the Client may only be agreed in writing. Variations to the Services by the Trainer may be essential if Services or suppliers need to be substituted. In such event, the same level of Services or goods or suppliers will be provided but limited changes are inevitable. The Trainer will endeavour to maintain quality and value as far as reasonably possible.
Intellectual Property Rights
5.7 The Trainer asserts their intellectual property rights, including copyright, over the written materials produced by the Trainer as part of the Services. The written materials shall not be reproduced, copied, shared or used elsewhere without the written permission of the Trainer. If you wish to use any of the Trainer’s materials either internally with others in your business, or externally, please ask us first. We will normally grant permission, although we will charge a licence fee if extensive use is requested eg for producing your own training packages. All rights are entirely reserved by the Trainer.
