Terms & Conditions of Payment

for The Upcycling Business One Hour Mentorship Sessions

The House of Upcycling (the Vendor) acts as an agent venue for the purpose of securing payment bookings for mentorship sessions (Sessions). Once a booking has been paid for by the Buyer, the Vendor will contact them by email within 24-hours to confirm receipt thereafter passing the Buyer's payment less any commission together with contact details to the Mentor who will then make contact with the Buyer to make arrangements for the mentorship session to take place.

After payment has been made

Once payment has been made in full and the Buyer is in receipt of an acknowledgement email from the Vendor, all responsibility for the Session, its arrangement, effectiveness, suitability, duration and outcome passes to the Mentor. The Vendor has no control over any part of the Session and take not responsibility for the Mentor, their behaviour, credibility or suitability to host the Session.

Change of Mind

Buyers have the right to change their mind, cancel their order and receive a full refund before a Session takes place, up until 48-hours beforehand. After that time a Buyer has no legal right to cancel or receive a refund. Any requests for refunds and alterations of dates and times of Sessions should be make to the Mentor and not the Vendor. Mentors endeavour to accommodate any changes to bookings requested by Buyers however their decision is final.

Changing date and/or time of booking or giving the booking to someone else

In the event that the Buyer cannot attend the pre-arranged time and date arranged for the Session, if they contact the Mentor direct (and not the Vendor) before 48-hours of the time and date of the Session, they will be able to re-arrange the time and date and/or receive a full refund. After that time, re-arrangement may be available but this will be entirely at the Mentor's decision (the Vendor has no control over this). If the Mentor is unable to rebook the Session with the Buyer at another mutually agreeable time and date, the original fee paid to the Vendor for the mentorship session will not be refundable. 

 

If the Buyer is unable to attend a Session and wishes to transfer this opportunity, they must contact the Mentor (and not the Vendor) at least 48-hours before the time and date the Session. The decision whether the Session can be transferred will be entirely down to the Mentor (and not the Vendor). If the request is made after 48-hours before the arranged time and date of the Session, the fee will be forfeited.
