a company registered in England and Wales with the number 4756692. These terms and conditions shall apply and take precedence for delegates attending any public course we run unless we agree alternative terms with you.

Booking Procedure for Public Courses run by Positive Purchasing Ltd

1. A binding agreement subject to these terms and conditions will be made as between you and Positive Purchasing Ltd when:
a. we receive a purchase order by post or email;
b. we receive a formal instruction by email, SMS text or by post;
c. you complete the booking online via our online store;
d. we receive a completed booking form by post or e-mail;
e. you book a course over the telephone paying in full.
2. Where you expressly state that any booking is provisional, then we will hold any such provisional booking pending for one week until you confirm that booking. You can confirm your booking by completing one of the actions specified in condition 1 above.
3. Where you make a booking on behalf of a corporate entity, you and the corporate entity will be bound jointly and individually to the agreement. Where you make a booking on behalf of the corporate entity you warrant that you have the authority of the corporate entity to do so.


Payment Terms
4. You will be sent confirmation of your booking, with an invoice by e-mail. Where you have already paid the course fee as part of the booking procedure we will provide a receipted invoice.
5. Where payment has not been made during the booking procedure, the invoice must be paid within 15 days of the date of the invoice, or no later than the working day before the booked course, whichever shall be the earlier.
6. The course is offered on the basis that payment will be straightforward either by credit card or timely payment of an invoice without the need to have to engage in additional activities such as vendor set up procedures or chase
payment in which case we reserve the right to reasonably increase the course fees to cover our additional time or decline the sale.
7. We reserve the right to refuse entry to the course where payment has not been received in full.


Cancellation and Postponement Policy
8. If you seek to cancel your attendance for any course being organised by us, it is likely we will incur irrecoverable costs and expenses and loss of profit.
9. Accordingly, once a booking has been made, you are entitled to cancel the booking subject to the following:
a. If we receive a notice of cancellation from you more than 30 working days prior to the scheduled start date of the course, you must pay 30% of the course fee. If you have already paid the full fee, you will be entitled to a
credit of 70% of the course fee.
b. If we receive a notice of cancellation from you less than 30 working days prior to the scheduled start date of the course, but more than 15 working days before the scheduled start date of the course, you must pay 50% of the course fee. If you have already paid the full fee, you will be entitled to a credit of 50% of the course fee.
c. If we receive a notice of cancellation from you less than 15 working days before the scheduled start date then the whole of the course fee remains payable. Under conditions a and b above, no monetary refunds will be given, only course credits.
10. If you cancel a course and are entitled to receive a credit this may be used towards any future public course run by Positive Purchasing Ltd within 12 months of the receipt by us of the notice of cancellation from you or longer agreed by us.
11. Any notice under condition 7 must be sent by e-mail to team@positivepurchasing.com and will only be effectivewhen it is received by us.
12. Whilst we try to ensure all public courses run as scheduled, sometimes it is necessary to postpone a course if there are insufficient numbers to run the course or for other operational reasons. We may postpone the course
by notifying you by email and offering you alternative dates for the course. You may either accept these new dates by notifying us by email, in which case you will have been deemed to have booked a new course. Alternatively, you
may inform us that you no longer wish to take the course by notifying us via email and you will be entitled to a full refund of the fees you have pre-paid for that course. We accept no liability (other than to provide a refund in accordance with this condition) if, for whatever reason, the course is postponed or fails to take place.
13. We reserve the right to vary or cancel any course if in our opinion circumstances so require. Should the course be varied or cancelled, you will be entitled to a full refund of the fees you have pre-paid for that course. We accept no liability (other than to provide a refund in accordance with this condition) if, for whatever reason, the course fails to take place.
14. We reserve the right to review our fees and booking terms and conditions as and when appropriate on notice to you. Should our fees and booking terms and conditions be varied to your detriment you will have the option to cancel your booking for the course and we will refund the fees you have pre-paid for that course. We accept no liability (other than to provide a refund in accordance with this condition) if you cancel your booking in accordance with this condition.


Attendance Policy
15. If you have booked a course you are entitled to substitute the delegate booked onto the course for another delegate by advising us by email at least 5 days prior to the event.
16. Where either;
a. the course duration is more than one day or one online session, and you are absent from the course for one or more of those days or online session, or;
b. you do not attend more than half of any live, online, instructor led session or keep you webcam switched off and do not interact; we reserve the right to refuse entry to the remaining days/sessions. In such circumstances, and for the avoidance of doubt, you will not be entitled to a refund of any of the course fees or to transfer to another course in order to take up the days/sessions you have missed without the written consent of Positive Purchasing Ltd. Should such
consent be given and a transfer agreed, we reserve the right to make a reasonable charge for such transfer to cover any differences in the costs of the course and our administrative costs of dealing with the transfer.


Intellectual Property
17. Before or during the course you will be provided with or sent hand-outs and other supporting materials. Subject to the terms of the course you are attending you may be given access to one or more of our online platforms. Please
