1 Agreement

Parallel Project Management Limited (“We”,”Our”,”Us”,“Ours”) agree to provide such Goods and Services that You (“You”, “Your”) may purchase to assist You in undertaking project management training and You agree to pay the sums identified to You on the order form or by other notification method for those Goods and Services.

In this context ‘You’ includes either
a) Corporate clients engaging in a contract with Us to provide Goods or Services to them or their employees (“Business Client”)
b) Private individual Consumers purchasing Goods and Services on their own account;
c) Private individual Consumers purchasing the Goods and Services for a Third Party.

All supply of Goods and Services is for the sole use of the persons named on the order and order acknowledgement (“The Named Individual(s)”). In the circumstances a & c above then You will be required to nominate the Named Individual(s) on the order form or pre or post contract communication.

Goods include physical products, shipped to You (for example study guides). Services comprise access to web site content, downloaded or streamed Licensed Material from Ours or third-party web sites (for example e-learning and podcasts) or attendance at one of Our Events (for example a classroom-based course at one of Our venues, Your venues or elsewhere with a stated start and end date and time).

If You are a private individual Consumer, then the Consumer Protection Act 2017 and the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling Regulations) 2000 apply. These Our Terms lay out how We intend to comply with this legislation in Our agreement with You and We do not seek to interfere in any way with Your statutory rights.

<h32. Order process

You may place an order with Us either through Our web site, via telephone or email. Irrespective of the mechanism, these, our standard Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) will apply. When registering Your order through the web site You will be asked to positively accept Our Terms, where other mechanisms are used then Your attention will be drawn to Our Terms as soon as is practically possible.

In some cases, You may require Us to register Your order on Your behalf and in these cases an account will be created in the name of the Named Individual according to Your instructions and these Terms will become applicable and we will provide You with copies of them (or a link to them) at that time. If upon receipt You decline to accept these Terms You should notify Us by any means immediately and Your order will be cancelled, and no payment or further liability will exist between us.

A contract exists between Us from the time of Our Acknowledgement which is the earlier of
a) an order acknowledgement from Us either by email, post or telephone, whether Your order was via the web site, telephone or by any other reasonable means.
b) Your written acceptance of a quotation (by email, post or telephone); or
c) Our delivery of the Goods or Services; or
d) Delivery of Our invoice by email to Your nominated email or postal address.

Any typographical, clerical or other accidental errors or omissions in any sales literature, quotation, price list, acceptance of offer, invoice or other document or information issued by Us shall be subject to correction without any liability on Our part.

Our employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning Our Goods and services unless confirmed by Us in writing. In entering into the agreement, You acknowledge that You have not relied on and waive any claim for breach of, any such representations which are not confirmed by Us in writing.

No variation to these Conditions shall be binding unless agreed in writing between the authorised representatives of You and Us.

Sales literature, price lists and other documents issued by Us relation to the Goods and Services are subject to alteration without notice and do not constitute offers to sell the Goods and Services which are capable of acceptance.

Unless the Goods and Services are faulty a sliding scale of cancellation or re-booking charges apply. A re-booking is where You choose to re-book a Named Individual (or a substitute) for another Service or Event. You must request a re-booking or cancellation in writing to us and we will act on it as soon as is reasonably practical to do so. In either of these cases We will charge a re-booking or cancellation fee depending upon the time at which the re-booking or cancellation is received by Us relative to the start date of any Service or Event and these charges are:

Notice period (dates are inclusive) Cancellation fee  / Re-Booking Fee
Less than 14 calendar days’ notice 100% / 100%
Less than 20 calendar days’ but more than 14 calendar days’ notice 50% / 50%
More than 20 calendar days’ notice 0% / 0%

Please note (and importantly) where We have made commitments on Your behalf (for example venue fees or exam bookings) We reserve the right to deduct such sums as may be reasonable (including re-booking or cancellation charges levied on Us) prior to calculating any refund irrespective of whether the Cooling Off Period applies as these constitute items ‘that were personalised or custom-made for you’. Please note that it is not uncommon for Us to enter into these sorts of arrangements as soon as the contract becomes effective.

In the event of You requesting a re-booking and We at Our sole discretion agree, your original order will have deemed to have been changed and the charges outlined above will apply. This modified order will be on the following basis

a) Payment terms remain in force from the date of the original order
b) We cannot guarantee to accommodate any requested changes
c) We will immediately substitute any Named Individual(s) and arrange with the relevant accreditation bodies (which may be irreversible)
d) Any discounts previously applied may not apply to the re-booking
e) Any current discounts will not apply to the re-booking
f) The charges above will be in addition to any changes in price for the Goods or Service reflected in our current list price
g) Any Cooling Off period will not apply to the new booking.Only one re-booking will be allowed

All prices regarding the examinations (where applicable) are set by external bodies and outside of Our control and as such are subject to change without notice and the terms under which these services are provided are covered by the requisite accrediting bodies’ own terms and conditions.

Such reasonable increases will be notified to You but will not be considered a substantive change that materially affects Our agreement. You may choose to cancel Your order if You consider any revised pricing unacceptable, but the cancellation terms above will apply.

4. Cancellation by Us

Our objective is to never cancel a face to face or virtual event once We have acknowledged Your booking, however from time to time and for reasons that are beyond Our reasonable control We may choose to cancel Your Event. When this occurs, We will inform You and suggest alternative reasonable arrangements if practical. If You choose to not take up these alternative arrangements,

We will return the full price paid by You as soon as reasonably practicable and no further liability will be due on either side.
We strongly recommend You check with Us prior to making any travel, hotel or other arrangements to ensure the Event details are confirmed and We will not be liable for any of Your out of pocket expenses whatsoever as a result of cancellation by You or Us unless We have provided written assurance that it is safe to go ahead and make such arrangements.

5. Payment

The price to be paid will be clearly stated on the order form and it will also show any relevant duties or taxes applicable to Your order. Payment is due at the time of the contract and We allow 30 days payment terms, notwithstanding this and in any event, payment must be made on or before the working day prior to the commencement of the Service or Event. You may be refused entry to the venue if this is not the case. It is Our policy in most circumstances to release Your log-in details for Services and ship Goods prior to payment to assist in speeding up Your learning journey but this concession does not affect the fact that these Services and Goods remain Our property until payment is received.
The time of payment shall be of the essence of these Terms. If You fail to make any payment on the due date in respect of the price or any other sum due under these Terms then We shall, without prejudice to any right which We may have pursuant to any statutory provision in force from time to time, have the right to charge You interest on a daily basis at an annual rate equal to the aggregate of eight per cent and the base rate of Nat West Bank Plc from time to time on any sum due and not paid on the due date. Such interest shall be calculated cumulatively on a daily basis and shall run from day to day and accrue after as well as before any judgement.
