1.1. What these terms cover. Under these terms and conditions, we will provide the course “Photoshop Breakthrough Formula” and any related services and digital content to you (“Course”).
1.2. Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order for the Course to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the course to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
2. INFORMATION ABOUT US AND HOW TO CONTACT US
2.1. Who we are. The Course is provided by Ruth Chornolutskyy, a sole trader established in England and Wales.
2.2. How to contact us. You can contact us by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.3. How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
2.4. "Writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
3.1. How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order for the Course will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.2. If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order for the Course for any reason, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Course. This might be because the course is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Course.
3.3. Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order for the Course. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
4. THE COURSE
4.1. The course is an online course. The course is provided via an online membership area. After you purchase the course, you will receive an email with your login information to enable you to access the membership area and all of the learning materials.
4.2. You must purchase your own Photoshop package via the third-party provider. The Course provides training on photo editing using Photoshop, however it is your sole responsibility to ensure you have access to Photoshop as this is not provided as part of the Course. We also make no recommendations as to which version of Photoshop to purchase and where to purchase it from. You must do your own research through the third party supplier of Photoshop.
4.3. Please be aware that Photoshop has regular updates. The Course will not be updated every time there is a Photoshop update so some Photoshop functions demonstrated in the Course may be a little different at the time you watch the course to what they were at the date the Course was created and recorded.
4.4. If you do not complete the course. If you choose to leave or not complete the Course, you will still be liable for the fees for the whole Course.
4.5. Where you submit edited images to me for mentoring as part of the Course, you acknowledge that I may use the images in my marketing material.
4.6. Only one image may be submitted for feedback and recommendations under Module 4 and the image must be submitted within 9 months of the date of purchase of the course, otherwise we do not guarantee that feedback and recommendations will be provided for any image submitted outside of this time period.
4.7. Any tuition given as part of this course and/or feedback or recommendations given as part of Module 4 represents the personal experiences, views and opinions of Ruth Chornolutskyy. Photography and photo editing is subjective and therefore, tuition is given based on Ruth's personal experiences and any feedback and recommendations given are based on Ruth's opinion and subjective views only. Such advice should not be relied upon and you are solely responsible for any action you take following any tuition, feedback or recommendations given. Unless we have been negligent, we cannot be responsible for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of any acts or omissions.
4.8. Results are not guaranteed. You acknowledge and accept that you are responsible for putting the training into practice and creating your own results.
5. YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
5.1. If you wish to make a change to your order for the Course please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Course, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 8 if you have the right to do so under these terms and conditions, Your rights to end the contract).
6. OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
6.1. Minor changes to the course. We may change the Course:
6.1.1. to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
6.1.2. to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements. These changes will not negatively affect your use of the Course.
6.2. Updates to digital content. We may update or require you to update digital content, provided that the digital content shall always match the description of it that we provided to you before you bought it.
7. PROVIDING THE COURSE
7.1. When we will provide the course.
7.1.1. Course and Services: Upon purchase of the Course, you will receive an email with your login details to get instant access to the membership area of the Course. We will supply the services and digital content to you until either the services are completed or you end the contract as described in clause 8 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 10.
7.1.2. Digital Content: Some digital content is provided as part of the course. We will make the digital content available for download by you as soon as we accept your order for the Course.
7.2. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Course, the services or digital content is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any parts of the Course you have paid for but not received.
7.3. What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the Course to you, for example, a valid email address. If so, this will have been told to you on the order form. If you do not give us the correct information we require, we may not be able to provide the Course to you. Where you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 10.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Course late or not supplying any part of it if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
7.4. Reasons we may suspend the supply of the Course to you. We may have to suspend the supply of the Course to:
7.4.1. deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; or
7.4.2. update the Course to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
7.5. Your rights if we suspend the supply of the Course. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Course, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency.
7.6. We may also suspend your access to the Course if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the Course when you are supposed to (see clause 12.4), we may restrict your access to the Course until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. As well as suspending your access to the course we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12.5).
7.7. We may also suspend or stop the supply of the course or aspects of it where your behaviour is unreasonable, destructive or threatening. We also reserve the right to withhold the Course or any services or digital content, particularly any personal mentoring aspect of the Course, were we reasonably consider that you are responsible for unreasonable, destructive or threatening behaviour. In such cases our decision is final and if your access to the Course is withdrawn in such circumstances you will not be entitled to a refund of the price of the Course or of any part of it.
8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1. You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
8.1.1. If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract, see clause 11;
8.1.2. If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;
8.1.3. If you have just changed your mind about the Course, see clause 8.3 and clause 8.7. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period or the period of our goodwill guarantee, but this may be subject to deductions;
8.1.4. In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 8.6.
8.2. Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at 8.2.1 to 8.2.4 below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any parts of the Course which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
8.2.1. we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Course you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
8.2.2. there is a risk that supply of the Course may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
8.2.3. we have suspended supply of the Course for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 2 months; or
8.2.4. you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
8.3. Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms. Please note our Goodwill Guarantee under clause 8.7.
8.4. When you don't have the right to change your mind. Subject to clause 8.7, you do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
8.4.1. digital products after you have started to download or stream these;
8.4.2. services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
8.5. How long do I have to change my mind? Subject to clause 8.7, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services or provided the digital content you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind. In respect of digital content, you have 14 days after the day we contact you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming the digital content.
8.6. Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for digital content is completed when the Course is delivered, downloaded or streamed, therefore once you have accessed the membership area of the Course, full payment for the course is due. This clause is subject to clause 8.7 and you may still take advantage of our goodwill guarantee.
8.7. Our goodwill guarantee. Please note, these terms reflect the goodwill guarantee offered by us, which is more generous than your legal rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations in the ways set out below. This goodwill guarantee does not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed products (see clause 11.2):
Right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013
How our goodwill guarantee is more generous

9.3. Deductions from refunds if you are exercising your right to change your mind. Subject to clause 8.7, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the service or digital content for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.

12. PRICE AND PAYMENT
12.1. Where to find the price for the course. The price of the Course will be the price as set out on our sales and checkout pages. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the Course advised to you is correct. However please see clause 12.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Course you order.
12.2. What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, the Course may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check the price before accepting your order so that, where the correct price of the Course at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price of the Course at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and remove your access to the course.
12.3. When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment via Stripe. You must either pay for the Course in full at the time of order, or if we agree that you may pay by instalments, you must pay each instalment to us in full in accordance with the instalment arrangements. If your credit card details have been taken, you irrevocably authorise us to automatically collect payment from that credit card on the dates agreed.
12.4. Where you fail to pay any instalment on its due date. Where you fail to pay any instalment on its due date then all monies owing by you to us for the Course shall become immediately due and payable. We may suspend your access to the course until you have paid us any monies due.
12.5. We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Bank of England Plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
12.6. What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
13. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
13.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. Subject to clause 13.5, if we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
13.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Course as summarised at clause 11.2.
13.3. If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by you failing to correctly follow our instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us. As advised under clause 4.2, you are solely responsible for obtaining a Photoshop package from the third-party supplier and we shall have no liability for any problems with any Photoshop package you purchase.
13.4. We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the Course for domestic and private use. You have no rights to use the Course or any materials, services or digital content provided with the Course for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose. We will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
13.5. Limitation of Liability. We make no warranty concerning the exact content of the Course or the effects of the implementation of any elements of the Course by you. We shall have no liability where you chose not to complete the Course. To the extent we are legally able to do so, we:
13.5.1. exclude all terms, conditions and warranties implied by custom and the general law or statue; and
13.5.2. limit our liability to you for any claim (whether arising under contract, tort or otherwise) for loss or damage suffered by you to the price of the Course actually paid by you.
14. HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
15. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND OWNERSHIP
15.1. Intellectual property and ownership of the materials in the course. By placing an order for the course, you acknowledge and agree that the ownership of all lessons, materials, services and digital content provided with the course and the intellectual property (including without limitation copyright, patents, design right (whether registered or unregistered), registered and unregistered trademarks and service marks, know-how, processes and rights in inventions or ideas) comprised in such belongs to and remains owned by us at all times.
15.2. No rights given for commercial, business or resale. You have no rights to use the Course or any materials, services or digital content provided with the Course for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose.

Breach of this clause by you shall enable us to immediately withdraw your access to the Course and seek any legal remedies available to us, including but not limited to an injunction and/or compensation.
16. OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
16.1. We may transfer this Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
16.2. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
16.3. Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
16.4. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
16.5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide access to the Course, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
16.6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Course in the English courts.
