- Contract Formation
1.a When you purchase online or through an email or a telephone conversation, your booking constitutes a request to us to reserve a place for you on a specified course with a specified commencement date.
1.b The contract between us will form when we send you a confirmation acceptance email of your place on the course. Where a purchase is made online, this will occur in addition to the online confirmation documentation.
1.c Acceptance will be complete at the point at which we send the confirmation email to you.
1.d VHE LTD recognises that a mere request for information does not constitute an intention to enter into a legally binding contract and the above clauses only apply to online purchases and clear requests to reserve a place on a course.
- Cancellation of Course Booking Policy
2.a Customers in the European Union are entitled to a statutory coolingoff period of seven business days. This is where the ‘Consumer’ is a consumer within the meaning of the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.

2.b VHE LTD will make a full refund of any course fees already paid provided notice is sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within that seven-day period.

VHE LTD enters into contractual liability with third party teachers/therapists and refunds are therefore not available for this reason.
