Definitions

In these Terms and Conditions the following definitions shall apply:

 

“Centre-Based Training” means training delivered by Pearson at your premises.

 

“Event(s)” means any professional development or other training service that we may schedule at a fixed time and with one or more facilitators or trainers provided by Pearson.

 

“Public Events” means training delivered by Pearson face-to-face at a public venue or a Pearson office, or online.

 

Part A: General Terms

 

1. Quality and standards

It is a regulatory requirement that all qualification-based training events are audio recorded. We record and monitor all Events for internal quality purposes. We are committed to ensuring that our Events cover only information that is openly available and do not confer an unfair advantage on anyone.

Online Event recordings may be shared internally and externally. Recordings will always be reviewed before distribution to ensure delegate anonymity. Delegates will receive a copy of the recording of the Event they have attended, for personal use only. We are unable to send copies of online Event recordings to anyone who has not attended that Event.

Face-to-face Event recordings are not available for distribution to delegates or any other person outside of Pearson.

 

2. Event Objectives

It is your responsibility to ensure that delegates fully understand the objectives of the Event which can be found in the description provided by Pearson.

 

3. Intellectual Property Rights

Copyright and all other intellectual property rights in all training materials shall remain the property of Pearson. You agree not to reproduce, sell, hire or copy training materials or certificates (in whole or in part) and not to use such materials except for reference purposes after the Event. You agree not to audio or video record an Event or any part of an Event using any recording device. You agree not to post-training materials or certificates online or to distribute them, electronically or otherwise, outside of your centre.

Pearson reserves the right to send any training materials used during a live Event to other individual delegates after the Event has taken place and to place the training materials used during a live Event onto our website.

 

4. Event Feedback and Surveys

Pearson uses SurveyMonkey to collect feedback from our customers relating to our training Events. Pearson will collect and process your personal information in accordance with our privacy policy which can be found here.

What information does SurveyMonkey collect?

When you respond to surveys hosted by SurveyMonkey, they collect, on behalf and upon instructions from Pearson, information relating to you and your use of SurveyMonkey services from a variety of sources. To find out more click here for the SurveyMonkey privacy policy.

 

5. Force Majeure and Termination

We reserve the right to cancel, suspend or vary the operation of our contract with you if events occur which are outside our reasonable control and we shall not be responsible for any breach of contract, nor for any loss or damage, resulting from such an event.

We may (at our option) terminate this contract at any stage if it appears to us (acting reasonably) that you have not complied with these Terms and Conditions.

 

6. Liability

We agree to provide the Event using reasonable skill and care. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions, Pearson excludes all warranties, conditions or other terms implied by statute or common law to the fullest extent permitted by law. Where the booking of an Event is made on behalf of a person dealing as a consumer, nothing in these Conditions shall affect his or her statutory rights.

Personal belongings or other items brought with you to Events are at your own risk and Pearson accepts no responsibility in relation to their loss or damage, whether at Pearson’s premises or elsewhere.

Pearson accepts no responsibility in relation to technical faults occurring in your centre (if applicable) or with your IT equipment prior to or during an Event. No refund for a paid Event will be given if your equipment fails during or before an event and you are unable to take part. Pearson will not be liable for any actual or indirect losses or costs incurred by the participant in connection with any aspect of their equipment and/or its failure during an Event.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall serve to limit or exclude our liability to you in respect of fraud or death/personal injury caused by our negligence.

Our liability to you under these Terms and Conditions or in relation to your Event whether arising from an action in contract law, tort (including negligence) or otherwise shall be limited as follows:

We shall not be liable to you in respect of any loss of profit, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goodwill or injury to reputation, loss of business opportunity, loss suffered by third parties or any form of indirect, consequential or special loss;

Our total liability to you shall be limited to the amount of the total fees paid, if any, by you to us.

 

7. Miscellaneous

These Terms and Conditions and the booking process referenced in these Terms and Conditions constitutes the entire agreement between us and you. In entering into these Terms and Conditions you acknowledge that you have not relied upon any statement or representation from us except those as set out in these Terms and Conditions or as stated in writing as part of the booking process.

No term of any contract between us arising from these Terms and Conditions is intended to confer a benefit upon or be enforceable by any third party whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining Conditions shall not be affected.

We may change the terms upon which we make Events available from time to time without notice to you and any subsequent booking requests you may make will be subject to those changes.

The language of any contract formed will be English. These Terms and Conditions shall be construed in accordance with English Law and you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
