Terms and conditions

These terms and conditions apply to any HeySpanish course that your children attend. By paying the class fees and attending a course, you agree to be bound by these Terms. You should read them carefully.

1. Formation and Acceptance of Contract

1.1. Registrations must be made through our website. You will be asked to provide certain information about you and your child that we will store in accordance with our Privacy Legal Terms.

1.2. You will be asked to pay online after attending the trial class or at the beginning of subsequent periods. Failure to do so within the stipulated time frame will result in the loss of the place. Our online payment system accepts most credit and debit cards used.

1.3. A binding contract between you and us will be formed on the date you pay the Fees. This contract will not have a fixed term.

1.4. These Terms govern the contract, which is formed between you and us when we accept the Student in a Course.

1.5. If we cannot place the Student in the Course, we will inform you of this and no contract will be formed between you and us. In these circumstances, we will refund any Fees you have already paid for the Course.

1.6. Parents may only join their children during online lessons if they are with them in the same location and using the same screen.

2. Changes to the Terms

2.1. These Terms may be modified by us at any time and such changes will be notified to you.

2.2. No variation of the Terms will be binding unless agreed by us in writing.

3.3. We may increase the fee for a subsequent teaching period with 28 days written notice. If we notify you of a Fee increase or a substantial change in these Terms, you may terminate the contract between you and us by written notice within 7 days after the date of our notification.

4. Your Cancellation Rights

4.1. The fee must be paid in full before the start date; otherwise, we may not allow access to the class except if you are on the monthly subscription plan.

4.2. Once a period/class has been booked and paid for, you have the right to change your mind within ten business days to transfer to another class/location.

4.3. No refunds are offered in the event of illness, absence, or cancellation by the client; however, we will attempt to offer make-up classes (up to 2 per term per student) if possible. To benefit from a make-up class, you must notify us by email or WhatsApp at +447784628261 about your absence at least 2 hours before the class you will miss in the case of a group session. We will then agree on a suitable date and group to make up the class, and once agreed upon, that class will count as taken even if you do not attend. If it is an individual class, we can coordinate the make-up in this format if you notify us at least 24 hours before the class; otherwise, we can offer you a group make-up session.

5. Our Cancellation Rights

We may suspend all or part of a Course without liability if we cannot meet our obligations due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including force majeure, government action, war or national emergency, acts of terrorism, protests, riots, civil commotion, fire, explosion, flood, adverse weather conditions, epidemic or labor disputes. We will not be responsible for any loss, damage, or expense arising from such suspension. In these circumstances, the fee will not be refunded, and we will restart the course as soon as we can.

8.5. Our maximum aggregate liability under these Terms will not exceed the Fee.

9. Your Legal Rights

However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland, you may also initiate proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also initiate proceedings in Scotland.

10.9. We record all educational sessions in order to carry out a rigorous evaluation of the teaching quality. In these recordings, both the instructor and the students are visible when actively participating in the class. It should be noted that access to these recordings is restricted exclusively to the coordinator of teachers. All recordings are deleted one week after the class date.

If you have any concerns regarding the privacy of your children, you have the option to turn off their camera so they do not appear in the video. It is important to mention that we do not disclose or publish these recordings on any public or private platform. All recordings are securely stored in Zoom's cloud and are automatically deleted seven days after the class date.

We recommend reviewing and agreeing to these terms before proceeding with booking a session.
