Our terms & conditions for bookings
Making a booking on the School of Life website involves creating a legally binding contract, the “Agreement”, between you, all of your Guests, and us. The parties to this Agreement are: (1) the person who makes the booking and enters into the Agreement and all Guests made under the same booking, referred to throughout the Agreement as “you” or “your”, and (2) our company, Campus London LLP, whose registered address is 930 High Road, London, United Kingdom N12 9RT and registered number is OC328999. Campus London is referred to in this Agreement as the “Company”, “we”, and “us”. By making the booking on behalf of one or more Guests you confirm that you are authorised to agree to these terms and conditions on behalf of each Guest.
We provide our events and services to you subject to this Agreement, so as always with a binding contract, you should read through it carefully before making a booking. We may make changes to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, but the latest version will always appear on this page. If you continue to use our website or services after changes have been made, you will be considered to have accepted the changes to the Agreement between us.
In this Agreement, the following capitalised words have these specific meanings.
‘Event’ means any event or facility offered on the website, including without limitation classes, events, intensives, workshops, meals, weekends, sermons, psychotherapy, MOTs, bibliotherapy sessions and hiring of premises.
‘Day Event’ means any Event not involving an overnight stay.
‘Guest’ means a person (including friends, relatives, acquaintances, employees, employers or any other person with whom you have a business relationship) attending an Event under a booking made by you.
‘Overnight Event’ means any Event involving the provision to you of at least one night’s accommodation.
‘International Event’ means any Event which takes place at a location outside of the United Kingdom.
When you book with us through our website, the booking won’t be confirmed until we send you your electronic ticket, even if you‘ve transferred money to us. We do reserve the right to refuse bookings for any lawful reason, although we don’t expect to have to do this very often.
We will usually email you your e-ticket, to the email address provided when you set up your account, within 48 hours of booking. If you have not received your e-ticket within 48 hours of booking, please check your spam or junk email folder or filter and then contact us. It is your responsibility to ensure that your email is set up to allow you to receive your e-ticket, and we cannot accept any liability for any consequences of your not doing so.
You’ll need to bring all your e-ticket(s) with you to the Event and show them at the door to be admitted, so make sure you have access to a printer and that you check the details carefully as soon as you receive the email. It is your responsibility to do this and we won’t be able to help if you get the date, time or location wrong, or to admit you to the Event if you forget to bring your e-ticket along. Incidentally, it’s fine to bring along any Internet-enabled device such as iPhones or Blackberries in order to show us your ticket, but make sure it’s charged and functioning, as we won’t be able to admit you unless the ticket is displayed to our satisfaction.
The price for each Event is displayed on the website and must be paid in full, and in the currency stated, by debit or credit card at the time of booking. On very rare occasions, the price might change due to unforeseen events, but you will always have the opportunity to cancel in the event that the price increases.
Gift vouchers must be used within 12 months of the purchase date. So if someone has been kind enough to buy you one, or if you’re buying a voucher for someone else, do make a note of the purchase date and remember to use the voucher before it expires.
If you have any special dietary, health or other requirements, please notify us at the time of booking at email@example.com. We will try to accommodate you, although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to. If it turns out that we are unable to meet your requirements, you can cancel your booking up to 10 days for Classes and Special Events/up to 30 days for Half Day or Full Day Workshops, Courses and Intensives in advance as normal and get a full refund. However, if you fail to notify us in advance and cancel within the stated period(s) as a result of our inability to accommodate you, we will not be able to offer a refund. In view of this, if you are booking within the relevant period, it is your responsibility to email us in advance of booking and obtain confirmation via email that we can accommodate you.
We offer 10% off events under £60 for over-65s, the un-waged on Job Seeeker’s Allowance and students. To access this offer please use the concessionary codes that can be found here. You will be asked to show appropriate ID when you attend the class: a driving licence or Freedom Pass for over 65s, proof of being in receipt of Job Seeker’s Allowance and a student card for students.
Cancellations or changes to bookings
We want you to book with confidence, and as such we will accept cancellations up to 10 days before Classes and Special Events or 30 days before Half Day or Full Day Workshops, Courses and Intensives, refunding your money in full. The refund terms and conditions will be clearly explained during the booking process for each event and will also be repeated in your e-ticket. You must notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we must receive your email, in order to receive a refund. Fewer than 10 days before a Class and Special Event or 30 days before Half Day or Full Day Workshops, Courses and Intensives, though, we won’t be able to offer you a refund.
IMPORTANT: please remember that cancellations or transfers for any psychotherapy session may only be made with at least two working days’ notice. If you cancel or need to transfer with less than two working days’ notice, you will not receive a refund except, at our discretion, in exceptional circumstances.
If you need to change the date of your ticket, or the name of the ticket holder, you’ll need to cancel, by emailing email@example.com, and rebook. Unfortunately, we can’t alter the dates of tickets or the names of ticket holders.
If we need to cancel an Event for any reason, we may do so at any time before the Event is scheduled to begin. We do not expect this to happen except in exceptional circumstances, and of course we’ll refund your ticket money in full, or offer you a choice of alternative date or Event, but we won’t be able to compensate you for any other expenses you’ve incurred in connection with the Event.
We will try to notify you of cancellations, but we can’t guarantee this, especially when an Event is cancelled at short notice. Keeping your details updated by logging into the website will give us a better chance of reaching you in time.
Attendance and conduct
Please ensure you arrive on time for your Event. For the benefit of all attendees, we will not admit you to your Event any later than: (a) for Day Events or International Events, 30 minutes after the advertised start time; or (b) for Overnight Events, one hour after the advertised start time. In addition, we may have to carry out security searches on occasion, and admittance will be conditional on your co-operation.
We may sometimes film, photograph or otherwise record our Events. Please note that your consent to being filmed or recorded as an attendee is a condition of this contract. By buying a ticket, you confirm the consent of you and all your Guests to being filmed or recorded. The recordings may be made available to the public via the website or by other means.
For everyone’s sake, we (and on our behalf, the staff of the venue) reserve the right to refuse you and/or any Guest admission or ask you and/or any Guest to leave if we think you and/or they are behaving in a disruptive way or in a way that violates the venue’s rules, or in a way that is likely to cause damage, nuisance, offence or injury. Just to be clear, this kind of behaviour includes using mobile phones after being asked to turn them off, or using recording or photographic equipment without authorisation. We will not issue any refund in this event.
We also request, and by entering into this Agreement you agree, to ensure that you and all Guest(s) attending an Event under a booking made by you comply with all health and safety, licensing, and other rules and regulations of the venue or applicable to the venue. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself and all Guest(s) with any rules and regulations that apply. You also agree not to bring in any illegal or hazardous items.
You also agree to comply with any reasonable request by the staff at the venue or supervising the Event (for example, without limitation, requests relating to health and safety).
Limitations of liability
Nothing in this Agreement excludes or limits our liability for personal injury or death caused by our negligence or in any other circumstance where such limitation of liability is not permitted by applicable law. The following two paragraphs apply subject to this paragraph, the provisions of which shall prevail in the event of any conflict.
Our total aggregate liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise arising in connection with this Agreement, shall be limited to the total amount received by us from you in connection with the Event or Event(s) giving rise to such liability.
You attend and participate in Events at your own risk. We accept no responsibility for any of the following:
- in respect of any person prevented from entering a venue, or asked to leave due to their conduct;
- costs or expenses whatsoever or howsoever arising out of or in connection with any Event
- loss or damage to personal property
- personal injury, except as set out above. Liability is specifically excluded in respect of any dietary, health or other special requirement of which we were not informed at the time of booking
- loss of data, profit, revenue, use, business, anticipated savings, goodwill, reputation or opportunity, financial or economic loss or any indirect or consequential loss or damage.
Data Protection: In processing your personal data, we comply with all applicable Data Protection legislation. Please see our Data Protection Policy for details.
Intellectual Property: All materials provided to you by us or by our staff or speakers or associates, and any intellectual property belonging to or associated with our company and/or services, including any website, trade mark or trade name, logo, software, text and graphics are the sole property of the Company or our speakers or associates, and you agree that you will not infringe any such rights in any way. You can make a copy of materials provided for your own personal use, but no other use of them is authorised.
Force Majeure: We will not be liable for any breach of this Agreement which is a result of circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to strike, lock-out, labour dispute, acts of God, acts of terrorism, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with a law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, insolvency or bankruptcy of either party or any third party, fire, flood, snow and storm, exceptional weather conditions, difficulty or increased cost in obtaining workers, goods or transport and other circumstances affecting the supply of goods or services.
Rights of Third Parties: A person who is not a party to this contract has no rights to rely upon or enforce any term of this contract. This does not affect any right or remedy of a third party which exists or is available outside of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
Assignment: You may not transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of your interest in this Agreement without our prior written consent.
Severability: If any provision in this Agreement is deemed to be illegal, unenforceable or invalid for any reason, it shall be deemed to have been struck out and the remaining provisions shall survive and continue to be binding and enforceable.
No waiver: Any failure by us to enforce any provision of this Agreement at any time shall not be construed as a waiver of such provision and shall not affect our right to enforce such provision.
Variation: This Agreement may only be varied by express written agreement of the parties.
Jurisdiction: The construction, validity and performance of this Agreement shall be governed by the law of England and Wales, and both parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
