BACKGROUND

I run Embodied Wellness Retreats, Workshops and Women’s Circles and I wish to enter this agreement to set out the terms and conditions that will apply in respect of my services and offerings.

1. Introduction

1.1 If you book a place on my retreat/workshop/womens circle you agree to be legally bound by this contract, including the details of the event which are set out on the webpage for the relevant event at taniameacher.com.

1.2 You also agree to be legally bound by my website terms of use and privacy policy.

2. Information I give you

2.1 By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that I must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract of sale between you and me is made. I shall give you this information in a clear and understandable way either in this contract or the webpage for the event. I shall give you information on:

    • The main characteristics of the event in question

    • Who I am, where I am based and how you can contact me

    • The total price of the event

    • The arrangements for payment

    • How to exercise your right to cancel the contract in the 14 day cooling off period

    • My complaint handling policy

3. Reserving your place on the Event

3.1 Below, I set out how a legally binding contract between you and me is made.

3.2 You place an order on the site by clicking on the ‘book now’ button and filling in the booking form or you may place an order with me by sending me an email.

3.2.1 When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process by clicking on the payment button, or you send me an email, I shall acknowledge it by an automated email. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.

3.2.2 When you decide to reserve your place on the Event, this is when you make a contractual offer to me.

3.2.3 I may contact you to say that I cannot offer you a place, for example if I do not think the Event is right for you or there has been a mistake in the pricing or description of the Event.

3.2.4 I shall only accept your request for a place when I confirm this to you by sending you a personal confirmation email. At this point: (a) a legally binding contract will be in place between you and me, and (b) I shall reserve you a place on the Event.

4. The Retreat/Workshop/Circle:

    • Your protections under consumer rights legislation

    • Correspondence of the event with its description

    • Use of third parties in connection with the event

    • My ability to provide the events in case of events beyond my reasonable control

5. Your responsibilities:

    • Payment for the event

    • Providing necessary information and assistance

    • Acknowledgment that attendance at the event is not therapy or counselling

    • Confirmation of consultation with a doctor or healthcare professional

    • Responsibility for physical capability during movement practices

6. Fees and payment

6.1 The price for each Event is set out on the webpage for that Event.

6.2 Payment is via direct bank transfer or any other method described on the webpage for the Event or as agreed between us.

6.3 A non-refundable deposit of £100 is payable when you book The Goddess Honouring Circle. The final payment is due 4 weeks before the Event.

7. Refund and cancellation policy

7.1 The fees are non-refundable except for:

7.1.1 Where I cancel The Goddess Honouring Circle, you are entitled to a refund for any payments you have made in advance; and

7.1.2 If you book your place more than 14 weeks before the start of the The Goddess Honouring Circle, you have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period as described below. As I am a small business and I have to uphold my commitments to my own suppliers, unfortunately, I am not able to make any exceptions to this no-refund policy, not even for personal emergencies. For this reason, I strongly advise you to take out travel insurance to protect yourself against illness, emergencies, and changes in your circumstances.

7.2 In the event you are unable to attend The Goddess Honouring Circle:

7.2.1 You may transfer your The Goddess Honouring Circle place to a friend, subject to my prior approval of your replacement; or

8.1 If you book your place more than 14 weeks before the start of The Goddess Honouring Circle, you may cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

8.2 The cancellation period will expire 14 days after the date of the contract.

8.3 If you book The Goddess Honouring Circle within 14 weeks of its start date, you will not have a right to cancel.

9. Effects of cancellation in the cooling-off period

9.1 If you cancel this contract in accordance with the cooling-off period in clause 8.1, I shall reimburse to you all payments received from you and I shall make the reimbursement promptly and using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless we have expressly agreed otherwise.

10. Intellectual property:

10.1 If I provide you with any materials, whether digital or printed, any intellectual property in those materials belongs to me and unless I agree otherwise you can only use those materials for your own personal use and you may not share them with third parties.

11. Photograph release:
