Terms & Conditions of Service, & Payment Terms

Amount

The amount you must pay us is the fee described at the point of booking, or any other amount we have expressly agreed with you (including in a proposal accepted by you).

Payment

Unless we have expressly agreed otherwise (including any proposal accepted by you), payment for public courses and in-house courses are due as follows: Invoices for public courses (virtual or face to face) must be paid within the earlier of: (i) 28 days from the date of such invoice; or (ii) the date on which the public course is scheduled to commence (the “Start Date”). Invoices for in-house courses (virtual or face to face) must be paid within the earlier of: (i) 21 days from the date of such invoice; or (ii) the Start Date. Notwithstanding the forgoing, payment of any outstanding invoice for any particular course must be received by LTD before any of your delegates may attend such course – even if that takes place before the end of the periods described above.

Unfortunately, if payment is not received in full in accordance with these Terms, you and/or your delegates may not be allowed on the course, and you will still owe the total amount invoiced for the course. Subject to the sole discretion of LTD, details for accessing or joining the course will not be provided until such owed amounts are paid.

Payment Methods

We accept the following payment methods:

  • Bank Transfer OR Card Payment

Leadership Through Data uses Stripe to provide a Card Payment Platform to our Delegates for those wishing to pay by (Business Credit) Card. A link will be sent to pay with our Invoice.

In the UK & USA the charges will be calculated and included on your Invoice.

In Australia you will be presented with these charges at the time of payment.

If you pay us late then:

  • We reserve the right to impose a late payment administration fee of $30;
  • You will also pay us interest on the late amount at an annual rate of 7.75% above the US Federal Reserve bank base rate, or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, for each day the payment is late (both before and after any judgement concerning that debt); and
  • We are entitled to suspend provision of our services to you (including not allowing you or your delegates to access any courses) until any fees owed have been paid in full, including any interest thereon.

Changes by You – Cancellations or Postponement

If you cancel any course (or any delegate’s attendance on a course) for any reason, you will be subject to the following costs to cover administration, staffing and opportunity costs (based on how long before the Start Date you cancel). You will be invoiced separately for any cancellation fees that are incurred if your invoice has not been settled.

We will ask you or your delegates to ensure that you have a device (laptop, PC or tablet) that can ‘run’ MS Teams, that this software is downloaded (we will send a link to instructions on how to do this) and that the device has a camera and microphone connected to enable you or your delegates to participate.
