The Classes are as described on the Site.

Prices of the Classes are specified on the Site and confirmed on the booking pages. We may change our prices at any time but that will not affect the prices for confirmed orders. Our prices are quoted inclusive of VAT. Payment for the Classes is to be made in advance at the time of booking by Paypal.
3.1 By placing a booking through the Site you acknowledge the applicability of these Terms of Supply. When you place a booking you will be allocated a booking number which should be quoted in all correspondence to us. These Terms of Supply will be binding on you and a contract will come into effect between us upon our written acceptance of the booking issued to you by email (“the Confirmation”). Please note we are not bound by any contract until we have accepted the booking in writing and issued the Confirmation. We reserve the right to refuse a booking without stating the reason why. In the event that we do so we will refund any payments made as soon as possible after the booking has been refused.
3.2 If you have already paid for the Classes and we are unable to supply them for whatever reason without being able to offer you a suitable alternative we will notify you and refund you the full amount paid as soon as possible.

For the purposes of this Contract a consumer means an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside that individual’s trade, business, craft or profession. However in terms of Part 3 Clause 28(1)(h) of the Regulations as the services being purchased are services related to leisure activities provided for on a specific date the right of cancellation under Part 2 Clause 29 under the Regulations is excluded and the provisions of Clause 4.2 shall apply to any cancellations and refunds if applicable.
4.2 If you wish to cancel your booking you can cancel by emailing us at mail@dadbookbinders.com or by post to Unit H Purdon Street, Partick ,Glasgow G11 6AF. If emailing or writing then your cancellation is effective from the date we receive the email or in the case of cancellation in writing two working days after you post the letter to us. If emailing or writing please quote the allocated booking number, Class name and date of the Class being cancelled. Upon receipt of the cancellation form we will email you confirmation of its receipt.
4.3. If you decide to cancel the booking the cancellation will be effective from the date that we receive your email or letter referred to in Clause 4.2 above and you will be liable for the following charges:
Number of days before the Class that the Cancellation is made
Over 28 days 25%
15 to 28 days 50%
14 days or less 100%
Where the charge is less than the full price of the Class a refund of the difference between the full price and the charge will be made to you
via Paypal in respect of the Class that has been cancelled.
In the event that you decide to transfer to another Class then we may at our sole discretion waive the cancellation charge but may elect to
charge a transfer fee of 10% of the purchase price of the Class in question. For the avoidance of doubt however any requests to transfer to
another Class must be requested in writing at least seven days before the date of the class booked which failing it will be treated as a
cancellation at short notice (“a Late Transfer Cancellation”) and no refund of the price of the Class will be given.
In the event that we are able to fill your cancellation prior to the date of the Class booked or to fill a Late Transfer Cancellation on short notice
then we may, at our sole discretion, refund you the purchase price of the Class in full under deduction of an administration charge of 20% of
the purchase price of the Class in question. In filling cancellations where there has been more than one cancellation for a particular Class our
policy will be to fill the earliest cancellations first. For the avoidance of doubt however nothing contained herein obliges us to actively seek
someone to fill any cancellations and such substitutions will only occur if the Class in question has been fully booked.
4.4 DAD reserves the right to cancel any Classes if numbers fall below a minimum requirement or for other exceptional reasons. In such an
event you will be informed of this decision as soon as possible and given the opportunity to book on the next available Class we have. If we
cannot offer you a suitable replacement Class you will be entitled to a refund in full for the cancelled Class. In the event that you do transfer to
another Class following upon our cancellation of a Class then no administration charge will be levied for doing so.
