3. Our contract with you

3.1 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we tell you that we are able to provide you with the lessons, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the lessons. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan.

4. Your rights to make changes

If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the lessons, their timing or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

5. Providing the lessons

5.1 When we will provide the lessons. We will supply the lessons to you for the time period set out in the order. The estimated completion date for the services is until either you end the
contract for the services as described in clause 6 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 7.

5.2 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our performance of the services is affected by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.

5.3 What will happen if you do not provide required information to us. From the very beginning, we will need certain information from you so that we can provide the services to you, for example, address, health conditions. Please complete a Cotswold RDA Application Form for the rider. If you do not, before booking any lesson, provide us with this information, or you provide us with incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (see clause 7.1) or not be able to allow the rider to take part in a lesson until it is complete. We will not be responsible for providing the services late or not providing any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

5.4 Reasons we may suspend the services. We may have to suspend the services to:

(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
(b) update the services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
(c) make changes to the services as requested by you or notified by us to you (see clause 4)
(d) conditions not being appropriate or safe for lessons to go ahead.

5.5 Your rights if we suspend the services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending the services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend lessons we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for lessons while they are suspended.

5.6 We may also suspend the services if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the lessons when you are supposed to (see clause 9.1) and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will not charge you for the services during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the services we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 9.2).

6. Your rights to end the contract

6.1 You can always end the contract before the services have been supplied and paid for. You may contact us at any time to end the contract for the services, but in some circumstances we may charge you certain sums for doing so, as described below.

If you are ending the contract for a reason set out at (a) to (d) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any services which have not been provided or have not been properly provided. The relevant reasons are:

(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the services or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause Error! Reference source not found.);
(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the services you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
(c) there is a risk the services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
(d) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

6.3 What happens if you end the contract without a good reason. Unless you have a right to end the contract immediately (see clause 6.2), the contract will not end until the end of the agreed academic term. We will refund any advance payment you have made for services which will not be provided to you outside of this. For example, if you tell us you want to end the contract on 4 February the services will stop on the last day within that academic term. We will only charge you for services up to the end of the academic term and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for services after that term.

You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

10.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and
you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us.

10.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services including the right to receive services which are as described and supplied with reasonable skill and care.

12.4 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things or prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the services, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
