Property Rights. Non-Exclusive and Non-Transferable License. SRPC owns all rights, title, and interest in SRPC trade names, service marks, trademarks, inventions, lesson plans, Services, materials, copyrights, trade secrets, patents, and know-how relating to the design, function, or operation of plans and of the hardware and software systems and resources necessary to provide the individual Service elements of which they consist. This Agreement does not constitute a license to You to use SRPC’s trade names or Servicemarks or to re-publish the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You hereby consent to SRPC’s non-exclusive use of our trademark and/or logo for the purpose of displaying Your status as a customer of SRPC. Pursuant to this agreement, SRPC grants a non-exclusive and non-transferable limited license to you for the Services. SRPC may terminate this non-exclusive and non-transferable limited license at any time upon notice to you.

Courses (Face-to-Face and Online). Payment must be received in full prior to the course start date. Customers who do not attend on the day of the course or seminar will be considered ‘no shows’ and will be charged the full course fee. Access to the course and all the materials is on an individual basis. If you share access with any other individual, you will be liable for the full course fee for all parties you have shared the Services with. Confirmation of your booking will be emailed to you automatically on receipt of your booking. Full joining instructions, including program timings and special instructions, will be sent no later than one week prior to the course or immediately for those booking within one week of the course date. Please note that no joining instructions or materials will be provided before receiving proof of payment for the course. Due to circumstances beyond SRPC’s control, speakers, venue, content, and timings of courses, training, and seminars may vary. SRPC reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any training, seminar, course, or event if necessary. In the case of cancellation by SRPC, a full refund of course fees will be made (if not rescheduled by SRPC within 60 days). In the event of a re-schedule course, fees will be transferred to the new date. It is the Customer’s responsibility to have a stable and reliable internet connection; SRPC will not issue any refunds for lack of internet connection or the Customer’s inability to log into a course.

If you have any questions about the terms and conditions or wish to cancel your place for any of the training above, you must put your request in writing to our customer service team. Discounts and offers are subject to change and cancellation by SRPC at any time, without notice to You.
