How long do I have to change my mind? You have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming.

Phone or email. Call customer services on the number on our Website or email us at [email protected]. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.

If there is a problem with the resources/content
How to tell us about problems. If you have any questions or complaints about the resources/content, please contact us. You can telephone our customer service team at the address on the Website or write to us at [email protected].
Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply resources/content that are in conformity with this contract. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
Your obligation to return rejected resources/content. If you wish to exercise your legal rights to reject resources/content you must not have downloaded them and must contact us within 14 days.
Where to find the price for the resources/content. The price of the resources/content (which includes (where applicable) VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the resources/content advised to you is correct. However please see clause 15.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the resources/content you order.
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the resources/content, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the resources/content in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the resources/content we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the resources/content’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the resources/content’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with credit card or debit cards via our payment processor, all payments to us are completed via this portal. We will never contact you seeking our credit card details. When you must pay depends on what resources/content you are buying.
What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
Payments for classes and gift certificates in any amount are non-refundable and non-transferable unless otherwise stated in the Terms and Conditions. If a package is bought and only part used there will be no refund available for the remaining classes. In such circumstance where Bikram Yoga Cork deems a refund appropriate, any money received from you will be returned using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

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 during the sales process.
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 resources/content including the right to receive resources/content which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care, under the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980.
If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us. Our liability is limited to the value of the resources paid for by you.
We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the resources/content for domestic and private use.

Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
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 and it will not 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 resources/content, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
