References in these T&Cs to the singular will include the plural and vice versa and references to the masculine gender will include references to the feminine gender.
These T&Cs constitute the terms of the contract (“the Contract”) between us for the supply of services to you. Pilates HQ Limited may change these terms and conditions from time to time and by browsing the site you are accepting that you agree to vary the Contract and agree to be bound by the latest terms and conditions published by us. The Contract will only arise once we have confirmed to you by email the particulars of your order. The Contract cannot otherwise be varied otherwise than by express signed agreement with us in writing.
The management reserves the right to refuse entry or Online Classes to any Member or third party in its absolute discretion. We may also in our absolute discretion at any time accept or reject any person’s registration as a Member in accordance with these T&Cs and we reserve the right to expel from the Studio, suspend or refuse to renew the membership of any Member whose conduct is or in our opinion may be harmful to the character of the Studio, or which amounts to a breach of these T&Cs or where such expulsion is otherwise in the interest of any other Members. Any Member so expelled will forthwith cease to be a Member will not be entitled to any refund for any period during which his membership is suspended.
Our online booking facility shows the availability and prices of classes on the date and time you select and these will change when bookings are made or cancelled by Members. Details of session prices are available at either www.pilateshq.co.uk or directly from the Studio and will be such price as determined by us from time to time.
A member may not attend any session at the Studio without first booking and paying for the relevant session. Sessions are booked on a first-come first-served basis. A Member may use the waiting list facility at www.pilateshq.co.uk if his first choice session is unavailable. If a Member joins the waiting list for a particular session his booking resulting from a cancellation will become subject to these T&Cs in the same way as any other booking.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have made your booking and payment correctly. Bookings should generally be made online but should a booking and payment be made by telephone or in person, the price of the class you select will be the same as that displayed online. You can pay for your class or classes by credit or debit card. We accept payment from the following debit/credit card providers: Visa and Mastercard. By choosing to make a booking online, you will be asked to select the time and date of the class you wish to book. Once you have selected a class or classes, you will then be automatically directed to a page on which you will be asked to enter your payment details. Please note that the price paid by you for your class or classes is final and credits are non-refundable.
You are responsible for checking the details of your booking at each stage of the booking and payment process. If you need help with your booking please call us on 02078121132, or e-mail us at email@example.com and we will be happy to advise you further.
Credits are only valid for 6 months from and including the date of purchase. A binding contract is not formed until we accept your offer to make a booking for a class or block of classes. An offer will be deemed to have been accepted by us once we issue a booking confirmation by email. Once the confirmation is issued by email to your email address the confirmation will be deemed to be delivered to your email account even if the confirmation is not actually received by you. Prices are subject to change at any time by us before we accept your booking. All classes are offered by us subject to availability.
Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein, by agreeing to these T&Cs you confirm that you are aware that our Online Classes are only likely to be offered by us temporarily and we may therefore suspend or discontinued them at any time without notice. Should we elect to discontinue Online Classes, we may elect to refund you for them or where Members have sufficient credit (at least 5 Online Classes worth together at least £25) convert them to credit for one or more physical classes held at the Studio. As Online Classes are cheaper than physical classes held at the Studio, the conversion will result in you being awarded proportionally fewer physical classes at the Studio i.e. currently as at 18 August 2020, 5 Online Classes would equate to 1 physical class held at the Studio
Changes to Bookings
You may change the date and time of your booking at any time without charge, so long as you do so 24 hours or more before the date and time of the class you have booked. To change a booking 24 hours in advance, please go to our website, put in your username and password and follow the instructions. You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no additional charge for this service.
Changes are subject to availability of classes, and we cannot guarantee availability at any time, particularly if a change is made at short notice.
Failure to attend classes or arriving late
Please ensure you arrive on time for your class. If you are more than 5 minutes late, the trainer may not let you in and you will forfeit your credit.
In the event that you do not attend the class or classes you have booked or arrive late, and you do not notify us by email 24 hours or more before such class or classes of your non-attendance, you shall NOT be entitled to a refund.
Cancellations by us
In the event that we cancel a class or classes that you have booked, we will contact you by e-mail or telephone and offer you the choice of:
(a) having your card re-credited with the price of the cancelled class or classes; or
(b) being transferred to a class at an alternative date and time.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of a genuine website error or inaccuracy, we reserve the right to cancel all confirmed class bookings.
