Legal Principles for Training
Last updated: 02/12/2020
At Young Foodies, we believe in goodwill and trust. We do not believe in overcomplicating things and having long legal agreements with our brands – instead please refer to these legal principles which we use to govern any course, programme or package you book through us.
By confirming a place on our courses, you confirm that you agree to these principles which we reserve the right to update from time to time. Please read these carefully and ensure you are comfortable with them before committing to anything with us.
- We are delighted that you are joining us for an entire year of learning and development.
- An individual that has subscribed for the full year package can attend as many courses as they would like, however they can only attend each course once.
- An Individual package is non-transferrable between people, meaning it cannot be sold on or passed on to a different individual to the person that originally signed up for it.
- If you would like to cancel a place on a course, please give us at least 8 calendar weeks’ notice. Any cancellations on shorter notice will see you charged 50% of the face-value course price as available on youngfoodies.co.uk at the time of cancellation to reflect the fact that you have taken the spot from other people.
- YF cannot be held accountable for non-utilisation and will not provide any refunds in this event so please do use it
- A business that has subscribed for the full year package can have their team attend as many courses as they would like, however they can only attend each course once.
- If you have new people joining your team during the 12-month contract, please notify us so we know to expect their name signing up.
- If you would like to cancel a place on a course, please give us at least 8 calendar weeks’ notice. Any cancellations on shorter notice will see you charged 50% of the face-value course price as available on youngfoodies.co.uk at the time of cancellation to reflect the fact that you have taken the spot from other people. This will not apply if, within 4 weeks of the course, you assign your space to someone within your organisation on the same contract as you.
- YF cannot be held accountable for non-utilisation and will not provide any refunds in this event so please do encourage your team to use it
- We quoted you based on a timebound 12-month contract, with the value of the contract being payable 1/12th per month during that period. By signing up to the package you are committing to the full 12 months of payment resulting in the full contract value being paid by the 12th
- The timing of the contract cannot be changed once booked and it is the responsibility of the brands and their team members to utilise the service during this period.
- If the number of people in the team increases materially during the course of the contract length, YF may reserve the right to discuss pricing with you. In these events, we will be fair and pragmatic to usage.
- YF will release the specific course dates in the first 2 weeks of the quarter for the next quarter of courses. For example, in the first 2 weeks of January, the course dates will be released for courses taking place in Q2. At this point, you can book onto the courses.
- We will set you up on GoCardless and take the payments once per month at the beginning of the month. We ask that you do not cancel this DD – cancellation of direct debits will trigger an invoice for the remaining annual value to be payable in full – no payment terms will be provided.
- The contract itself can be cancelled at anytime with 8 weeks notice however upon cancellation you will owe us the face-value price of any courses already booked at the point of cancellation, including any courses attended already or booked on in the coming 8 weeks after the point of cancellation. For the purposes of illustration: if you cancel in March and have already attended £2,300 worth of courses at face-value according to the Young Foodies website price – and have a ticket worth £500 for a course next month, you would owe YF £2,800, minus the sum already paid via direct debit for the package. Note this is all excluding VAT.
- The full invoiced amount is due upon course booking. The programme is non-refundable however you can change the attendee name up to 2 weeks before the programme start date.
- Sign up is personal and only the name of the attendee provided upon sign up can attend
- If you do not turn up to the days for whatever reason, we cannot offer any refunds.
- It may be necessary for YF to change the content and timing of a programme, the trainer or the date. In this instance, YF will provide new details to all attendees. No refunds will be payable.
- Whilst we are confident that the third party trainers delivering the programme are appropriately skilled and qualified, we are not responsible for the views, advice and opinion they express.
- The programme content and materials are provided for guidance purposes only on an “as is” basis, and are not intended to be advice specific or tailored to your particular circumstances on which you should rely. We do not promise that the programme and/or any information obtained by you through the programme will meet your specific requirements, and we are not liable for any losses suffered by you or a business you work for if you place any reliance on the programme content or opinions and views expressed during the programme.
- All programme materials are for your personal use only and you will not share the programme materials with any person, whether within or outside of your brand.
- You will not post any programme materials or content publicly.
- You acknowledge and agree that we and/or our licensors own all intellectual property rights in the programme materials and content. Young Foodies will enforce in full all its rights and interest in the programme content.
- If you breach any of these principles, you will be asked to leave the programme without any entitlement to a refund.
- You provide YF with the right to use your brand name in marketing materials for this service.
