5. LESSON DESCRIPTIONS, FORMATS AND DURATIONS
Details of lesson description, format and timings given on our website and in any other literature are intended only to present a general idea of the lesson, and shall not be considered binding. In particular, photographs are for illustrative purposes only and do not form part of the Contract. Delays, curtailments and breakdowns are not within our control and therefore we cannot be held liable if these should occur. Please note that we reserve the right to alter any part of the lesson where such an alteration is for safety reasons or has been imposed by the venue. We cannot be held responsible for descriptions on any third party or agent sites.
6.1 E-vouchers or printed vouchers are evidence of payment for, and entitlement to, a given lesson or gift. Each voucher carries a unique serial number, which must be quoted when dealing with us. Vouchers and the associated references must be kept safely and securely. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss you may incur as a result of voucher theft, impersonation or identity fraud. The unique serial number on the voucher should be used at the point of booking on the internet or alternatively sent to the operator if requested to secure the booking (we would recommend sending vouchers by secure mail as they are not replaceable if lost).
6.2 Vouchers are valuable documents and cannot be replaced if they are lost, damaged or stolen and are invalid if altered or tampered with. We accept no liability in these circumstances. Vouchers can only be redeemed once and therefore should be kept safe and not photocopied or distributed to others as we accept no liability for identity fraud. All vouchers are non-refundable unless you cancel the Contract under clause 9.1.
6.3 Each voucher is valid for a period of nine months from date of purchase unless otherwise stated.

By way of example, if a voucher is purchased on 25th February, it will be valid until 24th November in the same calendar year.
6.4 A voucher which has been re-sold (for example, through Internet auction sites or by any other means) without our prior consent will be considered invalid and neither we, nor any of our lesson operators, will be under any obligation to provide any service.
6.5 If a voucher expires, there is a 1 month grace period, where the voucher can be extended at a cost of £15. After a month of the voucher expiring, vouchers cannot be extended or used.
7.1 The price of a lesson or course of lessons will be the price set out on the relevant page of this website. We reserve the right to change the pricing at any time, however, if we accept a booking from you the price will be set out at the point of order in the Confirmation.

7.2 Payment must be made in full at the time of booking lessons or placing an order for vouchers by credit or debit card.
