CLASS TERMS AND CONDITIONS
12 Class Agreement
(a) When you register for a Class on our Website, you are making an agreement with us to purchase the Class ticket according to the Terms and Conditions set out in this agreement.
(a) You agree to pay the purchase price of the Class ticket as listed on our Website.
(b) Purchasing a ticket signifies your intent to attend the Class. Class tickets may not be resold for a higher price, as part of a ‘package’, or for any other business venture or profit.
(c) 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.
(d) If we cannot accept your order for any reason, we will process a full refund within a timely manner, from when we are informed of any issue.
(a) The purchase price of the Class ticket is displayed on our Website and must be paid by the Participant in full. You must pay the purchase price amount by the due date stated at the online checkout.
(b) If, for whatever reason, you cannot pay for the ticket by the due date stated on our Website, contact us via email as soon as possible and we will work with you to find a solution.
15 Gift Certificates
(a) Gift certificates are valid for a period of 12 months from the purchase date. If someone has been kind enough to buy you a gift certificate, please take note of the expiry date and make sure it is used before it expires!
(b) Gift certificates cannot be exchanged for cash.
(c) The same cancellation rules for Classes also apply to Gift Certificates. If you are a no show on the night or cancel within 48 hours then the amount ‘spent’ from your Gift Certificate will be deducted and lost.
16 Age Limit
(a) Although our classes are aimed at adults, we allow children aged 18 years and under to participate when supervised by an accompanying adult.
(b) If you have purchased a ticket for any Participant under the legal adult age limit, you must make sure the Class does not involve any activities limited only to those over that limit by law (for example, Wine Tasting Classes). You must also make sure they are in a suitable venue for those under the legal age limit. If you are unsure what the Class or Venue involves, contact us via email at the time of booking.
17 Class Attendance and Conduct
(a) Participants and Teachers are what make up the Laneway Learning community. As a willing Participant and member of our community, you agree to follow these standard guidelines when attending a Class:
(i) Ensure you arrive on time: the Teachers and the Venues are often on a tight schedule, and by arriving late you disrupt the other Participants and the Class. Plus, you’re missing out on all the fun!
(ii) Be respectful to the Teacher, Venue staff, other Participants (and us!): everyone attending the Class is there to learn and have a good time. Treat others with respect and if a conflicting situation does arise, it is solved faster with co-operation and courtesy.
(iii) Have reasonable expectations: We agree to provide you with the Class you have purchased as described on our Website. Please do not expect more than what is advertised – however if you do feel the Class was not what you expected then please contact us via email for a possible solution.
(iv) Provide feedback where possible: we want to do the very best we can within reason, so please feel free to provide us with positive or negative feedback after the Class, either in person or in writing. If you are submitting a formal complaint, please do so in writing via email and we will try our best to resolve the situation.
(v) Inform us of dietary, health or other requirements: if you have any requirements, please send us an email at the time of booking to let us know. While we will try our very best to work to these requirements, this may not always be possible. In these instances, we will endeavour to let you know at least a week before the Class is scheduled, and you will have the option for a full refund as long as you respond before the standard 48 hour cut-off time for refunds. 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.
(vi) Follow the rules: you agree to comply with all health and safety, licensing, and other rules and regulations of the venue. It is the Participant’s responsibility to familiarise themselves with any rules and regulations that apply, and you agree not to bring in any illegal or hazardous items. You also agree to follow all policies and procedures as outlines on our Website.
(b) For everyone’s sake, we reserve the right to refuse any Participant admission, or ask any Participant to leave if we think 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. We will not issue any refund in this event.
18 Cancellations & Refunds
(a) Class Cancellation:
(i) In the rare event we have to cancel a Class, we will endeavour to give Participants as much notice as possible. We will contact all Participants via the email address they provided when Class tickets were purchased, and offer a refund or a credit.
(ii) Should the Class be rescheduled, all registered Participants will automatically be eligible to transfer their ticket over to the rescheduled Class, and will be contacted by email. If a Participant does not respond, then we reserve the right to refund the ticket and give the ticket to another Participant.
(iii) If the timing of a rescheduled Class does not suit, we will provide a full refund on the ticket. The same principle applies to any Class requiring a late change of time or Venue (‘late’ in this instance, is defined as 48 hours or less, before the Class was originally schedule to begin) – we will notify all participants and provide refunds where participants are unable to commit to the rescheduled Class.
(i) We understand that sometimes life just gets in the way. If you are unable to attend a Class for whatever reason, we offer a full refund if you notify us at least 48 hours before the Class starts. If we receive your cancellation within this 48 hour period, we will not be able to provide you with a refund, except for in exceptional circumstances judged at our discretion. Tickets cannot be transferred to a different Class within the 48 hour cancellation period.
(ii) Refunds will not be given to Participants who are a ‘no-show’ (meaning Participants who have paid, have not cancelled, and do not show up at the scheduled Class time). However, you are welcome to change the ticket holder’s name for that date and time only to someone else who can come along, provided you notify us via email at least one hour before the Class is scheduled to begin, and include the details of the class and the name(s) of the new ticket holders.
19 Risk & Judgement
(a) We have no control over who attends our Classes, and their actions and/or behaviour during the Class.
(b) You must exercise your own caution and good judgement when attending a Class. Although we don’t expect for anything dangerous to happen during a Class, you must be aware that by participating, there is the possibility you may be exposed to some risks and hazards.
(c) As we have no involvement with the control of the Class, you agree to release us from any claims, losses, damages or liabilities of any kind that may arise, either directly or indirectly, in connection with the Class.
(d) Furthermore, you must understand the content of the Class is given directly by the Teachers. We do not endorse and will not be liable for any wrong or misleading information provided by the Teacher to Participants of the Class.
20 Disclaimer of Warranties
(a) Laneway Learning will offer to provide participants with a range of unique, exciting, fun and interesting Classes. However, the Teacher is solely responsible for the presentation and the content of a Class. Although we hope the Class is to your satisfaction, we make no warranty that the Class that you attend will meet your expectations, satisfy any legal or curriculum requirements for accreditations or licences nor that the content will be free of error or defects.
(b) We do not warrant or represent that your use of materials which you may receive from our Classes will not infringe the right of third parties.
21 Limitation of Liability
(a) 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 Class or Classes giving rise to such liability.
(b) You attend and participate in Classes at your own risk. We accept no responsibility for any of the following:
(i) Costs or expenses whatsoever or howsoever arising out of or in connection with any Class or other event;
(ii) Loss or damage to personal property;
(iii) Personal injury in respect to any dietary, health or other special requirement of which we were not informed at the time of booking.
22 Photograph and Video Consent
(a) We love to share what happens at Laneway Learning, so we will film, photograph or otherwise record our Classes. By buying a ticket, you confirm the consent of you and any other Participants with you to be filmed or recorded. The recordings may be made available to the public via the website or by other means.
(b) You agree to allow us to use and publish a photograph and/or video which may contain an image of you in any of our publications or materials. You should be aware that by us publishing the photograph and/or video on the internet, it will be accessible to the public and other internet users and we will have limited control over its subsequent use and disclosure.
(c) You also acknowledge that you are not entitled to any remuneration, royalties or any other payment from us in respect of the use by us of the photographs and/or videos.
(d) If you are not comfortable with your image being used to promote Laneway Learning or any business or group associated with the Teacher of the Class you attend, then please advise us, in writing, at the time of booking. If you have any issues with the way content is used after the Class, please advise us via email and we will work on a mutually agreed solution.
