This Part 3 applies to all Clients who purchase Paid Content, Online Courses, Subscriptions and/or become a Member through Our Site.
2. Age Restrictions
Clients may only purchase Paid Content, Online Courses and Subscriptions and/or become a Member if they are at least 18 years of age.
3. Subscriptions, Paid Content, Pricing and Availability
- We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions of Subscriptions, Online Courses and Paid Content available from Us correspond to the actual Subscription, Online Courses and Paid Content that the Client will receive.
- Please note that sub-Clause 3.1 does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on Our part and refers only to minor discrepancies. Please refer to Clause 8 if your Subscription, Online Course or the Paid Content is incorrect.
- We may from time to time change Our prices. Changes in price will not affect any Subscription, Online Course or the Paid Content that the Client has already purchased but will apply to any subsequent renewal or new Subscription. We will inform the Client of any change in price at least 10 days before the change is due to take effect. If the Client does not agree to such a change, the Client may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 10.1.
- Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Paid Content, Online Courses or Subscriptions, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address technical or security issues. These changes will not alter the main characteristics of the Paid Content, Online Courses or Subscriptions and should not normally affect your use of that Paid Content, Online Courses or Subscriptions. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Paid Content, Online Courses or Subscriptions suitable information will be provided to the Client.
- Where any updates are made to Paid Content or Online Course, that Paid Content and Online Courses will continue to match Our description of it as provided to the Client before the Client purchased the Paid Content or Online Courses. Please note that this does not prevent Us from enhancing the Paid Content and Online Courses, thereby, going beyond the original description.
- We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. Changes in price will not affect any order that the Client has already placed (please note sub-Clause 3.10 regarding VAT, however).
- All prices are checked by Us before We accept an order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact the Client in writing to inform the Client of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when the Client made the order, We will simply charge the Client the lower amount and continue processing the order. If the correct price is higher, We will give the Client the option to purchase the Paid Content at the correct price or to cancel the order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing the order in this case until the Client respond. If We do not receive a response from the Client within 10 days, We will treat the order as cancelled and notify the Client of this in writing.
- If We discover an error in the price or description of the purchase after the order is processed, We will inform the Client immediately and make all reasonable efforts to correct the error. The Client may, however, have the right to cancel the Contract if this happens. If We inform the Client of such an error and the Client does wish to cancel the Contract, please refer to sub-Clause 10.4.
- If the price of a Subscription that the Client has ordered changes between the order being placed and Us processing that order and taking payment, the Client will be charged the price shown on Our Site at the time of placing the order.
- All prices on Our Site include VAT. If the VAT rate changes between the order being placed and Us taking payment, the amount of VAT payable will be automatically adjusted when taking payment.
4. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
- Our Site will guide the Client through the process of purchasing a Subscription, Paid Content and/or Online Courses. Before completing the purchase, the Client will be given the opportunity to review its order and amend it. Please ensure that the order is carefully checked before submitting it.
- If We are unable to process an order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact the Client to ask to correct it. If the Client does not give Us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel the order and treat the Contract as being at an end. We will not be responsible for any delay in the availability of a Subscription, Paid Content and/or Online Courses that results from the Client providing incorrect or incomplete information.
- No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. The Client’s order to purchase a Subscription, Paid Content and/or Online Courses constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending the Client a Payment Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent the Client a Payment Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and the Client.
- Payment Confirmations shall contain the following information:
- Confirmation of the purchase ordered including full details of the main characteristics of the Subscription, Paid Content and/or Online Courses available as part of it;
- Fully itemised pricing for the purchase including, where appropriate, taxes, and other additional charges;
- The duration of the Subscription or Online Course (including the start date, and the expiry and/or renewal date (if applicable)); and
- Confirmation of the Client’s acknowledgement that the Paid Content will be made available to the Client immediately and that the Client will lose its legal right to change its mind and cancel upon accessing the Paid Content as detailed below in sub-Clause 10.1.
- In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil the order for any reason, We will explain why in writing. No payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to the Client as soon as possible and in any event within 14 calendar days.
- Any refunds under this Clause 4 will be issued to the Client as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of the day on which the event triggering the refund occurs.
- Refunds under this Clause 4 will be made using the same payment method that the Client used for its purchase.
- Payment for Subscriptions must always be made in advance. The Client’s chosen payment method will be charged when We process the order and send the Client a Payment Confirmation (this usually occurs immediately, and the Client will be shown a message confirming your payment).
- We accept the following methods of payment on Our Site:
- Debit and credit card via Stripe
- If the Client does not make any payment due to Us on time, We will suspend your access to the Paid Content. For more information, please refer to sub-Clause 6.5. If the Client does not make payment within 10 days of Our reminder, We may cancel the Contract. Any outstanding sums due to Us will remain due and payable.
- If the Client believe that We have charged the Client an incorrect amount, please contact Us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as reasonably possible to let Us know. The Client will not be charged for Paid Content while availability is suspended.

- Paid Content appropriate to the Subscription or purchase will be available to the Client immediately when We send the Client a Payment Confirmation and will continue to be available for the duration of the Subscription (including any renewals), or until the Client end the Contract.
- When the Client places an order, the Client will be required to expressly acknowledge that the Client wish the Paid Content to be made available to the Client immediately. The Client will also be required to expressly acknowledge that by accessing (e.g. downloading or streaming) the Paid Content, the Client will lose its legal right to cancel if the Client changes its mind (the “cooling-off period”). Please see sub-Clause 10.1 for more information.
- In some limited circumstances, We may need to suspend the provision of Paid Content (in full or in part) for one or more of the following reasons:
- To fix technical problems or to make necessary minor technical changes;
- To update the Paid Content to comply with relevant changes in the law or other regulatory requirements;
- To make more significant changes to the Paid Content.
- If We need to suspend availability of the Paid Content for any of the reasons set out in sub-Clause 6.3, We will inform the Client in advance of the suspension and explain why it is necessary (unless We need to suspend availability for urgent or emergency reasons such as a dangerous problem with the Paid Content, in which case We will inform the Client as soon as reasonably possible after suspension). If the suspension lasts (or We tell the Client that it is going to last) for more than 30 days, the Client may end the Contract as described below in sub-Clause 10.2.
- We may suspend provision of the Paid Content if We do not receive payment on time from the Client. We will inform the Client of the non-payment on the due date, however if the Client does not make payment within 10 days of Our notice, We may suspend provision of the Paid Content until We have received all outstanding sums due from the Client. If We do suspend provision of the Paid Content, We will inform the Client of the suspension. The Client will not be charged for any Paid Content while provision is suspended.
- Any refunds under this Clause 6 will be issued to the Client as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of the day on which the event triggering the refund occurs.
- Refunds under this Clause 6 will be made using the same payment method that the Client used when purchasing your Subscription.
- When the Client purchases a Subscription, Paid Content and/or Online Courses, We will grant the Client a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable licence to access and use the relevant Paid Content and/or Online Courses for personal, non-commercial purposes. The licence granted to the Client does not give the Client any rights in Our Paid Content and/or Online Courses (including any material that We may licence from third parties).
- The Client may not copy, rent, sell, publish, republish, share, broadcast or otherwise transmit the Paid Content (or any part of it) or make it available to the public except as permitted under the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (Chapter 3 ‘Acts Permitted in relation to Copyright Works’).
8. Problems with the Paid Content
- By law, We must provide digital content that is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, and as described. If any Paid Content and/or Online Courses available through your Subscription does not comply, please contact Us as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the problem.

- If the Paid Content and/or Online Courses have faults, the Client will be entitled to a repair or a replacement.
- If We cannot fix the problem, or if it has not been (or cannot be) fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to the Client, the Client may be entitled to a full or partial refund.
- If the Client can demonstrate that the fault has damaged your device or other digital content belonging to the Client because We have not used reasonable care and skill, the Client may be entitled to a repair or compensation. Please refer to sub-Clause 11 for more information.

9. Cancelling a purchase
- If the Client is a consumer, by default the Client has a legal right to a “cooling-off” period within which the Client can cancel the Contract for any reason, including if the Client has changed its mind, and receive a refund. The period begins once We have sent the Client your Payment Confirmation (i.e. when the Contract between the Client and Us is formed) and ends when the Client access (e.g. download or stream) the Paid Content, or 14 calendar days after the date of Our Payment Confirmation, whichever occurs first.
- After the cooling-off period, the Client may cancel its Subscription at any time, however subject to sub-Clause 9.3 and Clause 10, We cannot offer any refunds and the Client will continue to have access to the Paid Content for the remainder of your current Subscription (up until the renewal or expiry date, as applicable), whereupon the Contract will end.

Part 4 – ACCESSING ONLINE SERVICES
This Part 4 applies to all Clients who receive online Services from Us via a cloud based conferencing platform.
12. Online access to Online Services
- Where We offer the online Services, We will use technology which allows Us to provide the online Services to Our Clients. As a Client the Client will need to have the appropriate technology (see below) to receive the online Services. For this purpose, We may use the Zoom cloud-based web conferencing platform or an alternative provider (“Zoom”).
- Where We are to make any of online Services available to the Client by means of Zoom rather than through Our Site, it will be on the following basis.
- We will subscribe to Zoom and will pay any necessary fees to Zoom to maintain that subscription. It will enable Us to act as “host” and to provide the Paid Content, Online Courses or Coaching to Our Clients over the internet via the Zoom.
- To receive or participate in any of the online Services via Zoom, the Client will need to join an online session which is within the scope of the Client’s Subscription or Course or Training. The Client will not need to pay any fee or charge to use Zoom or join that session: the Client will only need to pay for the Subscription or Course or Training.
- We do not provide any PC, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other hardware (“Device”) or any Zoom App or other software for use on or with any Devices, nor any internet connection or service or other equipment or facilities necessary to enable a Client to use Zoom.
- It will be the Client’s sole responsibility to ensure that it has access to, and familiarity with all necessary technology so that the Client can receive and participate in the online Services via Zoom.
- It will be the Client’s sole responsibility to ensure that:
- An appropriate functioning Device which is adequately charged;
- An up to date Zoom App where applicable. It will need to be downloaded to the Device, and installed and working fully and correctly on the Device, so that the Client can receive the online Services;
- Stable, reliable, internet access with adequate speed;
- A safe location with a suitable quiet and comfortable environment in which to watch, listen, speak where appropriate, make notes, and otherwise to participate as necessary, without the presence of any other person to distract the Client or the Coach;
- Where the Device on its own does not provide an adequate microphone and/or loudspeakers for the purpose, external microphone and/or speakers as reasonably necessary; and
- Exercise/notebooks, pens, pencils, and any books, materials or equipment.
13. Privacy and security on each occasion when online Services are accessed
- Where any session that a Client accesses is two-way synchronous livestream audio and/or video technology (not a pre-recorded one-way transmission), on the occasion the Client accessing it, it will also be made simultaneously accessible to all others who have purchased it and choose to access it unless We specify that it is to be made available on that occasion only to a Client as an individual private session.
- Therefore, unless We specify that a particular two-way session is only accessible to the Client, the following will apply to such a session:
- When a Client signs in to Zoom, it should only indicate its first name only since its name will be visible to Our other Clients taking part;
- The Client understands and is aware that there is a risk that other Clients and other people may see and hear (via the video and/or audio facilities of the Zoom App and the Device) not only the Client but its space and its surroundings and other people in or near that space and its surroundings when the Client participating in the session;
- The space that the Client uses should be free of others and it should be difficult to see or hear via the Zoom App and the Device any interactions between people who are in or near that space and its surroundings. For example, the Client might decide to use a private room and/or wear headphones;
- There are potential risks in transmitting information over technology that include, but are not limited to, breaches of confidentiality and the theft of personal information;
- We cannot ensure privacy or confidentiality due to the nature of two-way sessions involving multiple Clients; and
- In any event, it will the Client’s responsibility to ensure that it has a suitable space to use when participating in any two-way session in order to protect its privacy and that of others in or near that space.
3. We do not claim to have any expertise or skill in relation to any technology that the Client need or use for the purpose of receiving the online Services. However, We may, if the Client request it, either before or during any session of the online Services, and without charge, offer suggestions in good faith to resolve any problem with that technology that the Client report, but it will not be in the nature of advice to the Client. We do not, therefore, take on any responsibility or accept any liability to the Client if any such suggestion does not help the Client to resolve any problem or if by following any such suggestion the Client experience any other problem, loss or damage to any technology or other thing.
4. We will not be responsible or liable to the Client if the Client is unable to access any of the online Services due to any failure or delay in performing Our obligations under the Contract resulting from any cause beyond Our reasonable control. In any such case, the Client will remain liable to pay for the online Services that We have made available for the Client. Such causes beyond Our reasonable control may include (but are not limited to):
- Where the Client is unable to resolve any technology problem (whether or not the Client has asked Us for or We have offered any suggestions as to how to resolve the problem); or
- Any slow speed, instability, temporary or other breakdown, unavailability or inadequacy of, or defect in, the Client’s internet service or any other equipment or service (e.g. telecommunications, computing, audio or visual) that the Client use or rely on; or
- Failure of or defect in the Zoom platform used by Us or the Client to access the online Services.
5. We will not be liable to the Client for any loss or damage arising from its failure to comply with the above requirements.
PART 5 – COACHING TERMS
This Part 5 applies to all Clients who receive Coaching from Ask Harriette either as part of 1-2-1 Coaching, group Coaching, online Coaching and/or part of Coaching provided as part of one of Our Online Courses or Training programmes.
- Please note that We will in Our discretion decide which Coach to assign to each Coaching session. Where the Coaching comprises more than one session, We may assign different Coaches to different sessions. We will ensure as far as We reasonably able to do so, that We assign the same Coach to those sessions, and will in any event try to minimise changes of Coach from one session to the next in relation to each session.
- In any event, the Coach who We assign to any session will be appropriately qualified and/or experienced at the appropriate level for that session and will be competent to conduct that session.
15. The Coaching
- Preparation for each session: The Client should attend each session prepared by completing any assignment, work, tasks set for the Client at the previous session. Adequate preparation for sessions is more likely to result in satisfactory progress. If the Client require guidance with an assignment or tasks between sessions, We are usually contactable by email/phone and may be able to provide some help remotely.
- Records: The Client should provide and maintain a tuition diary and this can be in the form of in which the Client can make notes, setting out any information useful or necessary to the Client when studying, practising or carrying out any task or assignment or to prepare for an examination.
- The Client’s Progress: Whilst We will use Our reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Client makes satisfactory progress, results will be different for each individual depending on various factors, including, without limitation, number and frequency of sessions, whether they are interactive rather than one-way recorded sessions, any preparation or other tasks or work done or activity engaged in by the Client set or suggested by the Coach, and the Client’s aptitude.
- Satisfactory progress cannot be guaranteed. We make no warranty or representation that any particular progress or result will be brought about (including, where relevant, passing any examination) as a result of the Client taking part in or viewing any session(s).
- Attendance: If the Client is not available for a session for any reason it is solely the Client’s responsibility to ensure that the Client makes up for that missed session by purchasing an additional session if necessary.
- Punctuality: We expect the Client to be ready for a session at least 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of the session to ensure that the Client are ready to start on time.
- Course or other equipment, items materials etc.: We may make suggestions as to any equipment, textbooks, videos or other materials or items that the Client should read, view, purchase or otherwise acquire where We think it is necessary or helpful for the Client to have a copy to use during or outside sessions but We cannot provide such materials or items for the Client.
- Practice/Homework/Tasks/Assignments: We will usually give the Client at the end of a session a practice and homework assignment or tasks to carry out, and the Client should complete it/them prior to the Client’s next session. It is best if the Client has a quiet place to practice, study, carry out tasks, and work on any assignment without interruption.
- Our commitment, amount of tuition needed: We agree to teach the Client at the agreed times and days. It is not always possible to determine at the outset how much tuition the Client will require. Where We decide that We are able to do so, We may recommend to the Client, as and when appropriate, when We consider that the Client are ready for any relevant examination. We may recommend additional opportunities to help with the Client’s study and training such as relevant workshops run by Us or third parties where We are aware of such opportunities and such workshops are available.
16. The Client’s commitments
- The Client agrees that full participation in the Coaching sessions is necessary in order to achieve best possible results and outcomes for the Client. If the Client does not participate or miss out elements of Coaching sessions or follow up actions then this is likely to have a negative impact on the effectiveness and potential of the Client’s outcomes. We are not responsible if the Client does not meet its desired outcome and results from the Coaching if the Client does not participate fully. As such, the Client commit wholeheartedly to being an active participant and present and on time for all sessions in the Coaching.
- The Client agree that it is its responsibility to attend the Coaching sessions, and to utilise the tools and resources made available to the Client. If the Client are unable to attend a session, the Client agree to provide notice of that cancellation 48 hours in advance, where possible. In the event of an emergency or the event that cancellation cannot be provided within 48 hours of the scheduled session, every effort will be made to accommodate a rescheduled session, but with a busy schedule, a nearby date cannot be guaranteed.
- The Client accept and agree that it is one hundred percent (100%) responsible for its own actions including its participation, progress and results during the Coaching. The Client agrees to communicate open and honestly, and complete all written information requested from the Client in a timely way. We will do Our best to support the Client with getting the maximum benefit and potential outcomes from Our provision of the Coaching but We cannot guarantee that Coaching, Online Courses or Training and Services will meet your specific expectations or that the Client will achieve any particular outcomes or results.
- The Client understands and agrees that it is participating in the Coaching for personal and professional growth and therefore gives Us permission to be honest, direct, supportive and challenging during provision of the Coaching and Our interactions with the Client.
- The Client agrees to conduct itself in a responsible and courteous manner at all times during your participation in the Coaching, and in particular not to disrupt or be offensive or cause distress to either the Coaches or other Clients. In the event that the Client breach this clause, then an Ask Harriette representative will contact the Client to put the Client on notice that its conduct is in breach of these terms. If the Client fails to take that remedial action, or continue to act in a way which (in the reasonable opinion of Us) breaches this clause then We reserve the right to terminate the Client’s participation in Coaching and/or any applicable Online Course or Training and permanently exclude the Client from the Coaching and/or any applicable Online Course or Training. No refund will be due to the Client in these circumstances and no further discussions will be entered into. Our decision on this will be both discretionary and final.
