2. Grant of Licence
Your contract with us begins when you make a payment, and you are brought to your account page (in accordance with Clause 5). This signifies our acceptance of your order and the beginning of your contract with us.
In consideration of your payment, we hereby grant you a licence to use the purchased supplementary eLearning revision materials (“the Products”). This licence is limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable, and is subject to the rights and obligations granted under these Terms.
This licence is personal to you and cannot be shared or exchanged with others.
We develop, distribute and maintain the Products and will also provide you with log in details. We will also manage your access to the Products and provide technical support to you, where reasonably necessary.
You shall not copy, modify, transmit, distribute or in any way exploit the Products or any other copyrighted materials provided other than for your individual training. Any other purpose is expressly prohibited under these terms. You shall also not permit anyone else to copy, use, modify, transmit, distribute or in any way exploit the Products or any other copyrighted materials.
We provide the materials ‘as is’ and without any warranties, whether express or implied, except those that cannot be excluded under statute. We also do not warrant that the materials will be error free, including technical inaccuracies.
4. Access to Materials
The starting date of your access to the Product(s) is deemed to be the date of purchase and will expire in 365 days from the date of purchase. We will attempt to contact you 1 month prior to the expiry date to inform you of this. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all Products purchased are completed within the allocated time period. If you do not think this will be possible, then extensions of time are available for purchase at an additional cost.
We will take all commercially reasonable steps to provide you with uninterrupted access to the Products. However, your access may be restricted from time to time for reasons beyond our control. Such reasons include force majeure events, power outages and actions from computer hackers and others acting outside the law. Your access may also be interrupted due to software issues, server downtime, increased Internet traffic, programming errors, regular maintenance and other related reasons. Where this is the case, we will take commercially reasonable steps to restore your full access within a reasonable period of time. ‘Commercially reasonable’ in these terms shall mean reasonable efforts taken in good faith, without an unduly burdensome use or expenditure of time, resources, personnel or money.
Our aspiration is to provide supplementary revision courses and materials of the highest quality. As such, improvements or changes to the Products or any other materials may occur at any time without prior notification in order to ensure they are up to date and accurate.
Where your access to the Products is restricted for any of the above reasons, we may provide you with a free extension of time at our sole discretion.
5. Pricing & Payment
We use third party payment providers, depending on the way in which you make payments – Stripe. Payment for the Products must be made at the point of purchase.
You agree to provide payment for the Products in the stipulated currency and you will be liable to pay any relevant conversion charges, as well as applicable sales tax in your region. Please note that we must receive your payment in full before providing you with access to the Products.
Your payment includes the licensing of the Products for a limited period of time that is appropriate for the eLearning revision content. We are unable to provide a refund if you fail to complete the content within the allocated time, except at our absolute and sole discretion.
We reserve our right to review and change the pricing of any of our Products. This will not affect products that have already been purchased.
From time to time our website may advertise discount codes. If for whatever reason you were unable to use the code on the date of purchase, we can refund the discount upon request IF the code was advertised as valid on the date of purchase. Please contact our support team for more information.
We are not responsible for any customer, student or any other person relying on our Products making omissions or mistakes in, or failing to pass or to achieve any grade in, any assessment, including the LPC examinations; nor are we responsible for any loss caused by any person relying on our Products in lieu of legal advice or independent verification of factual statements.
We only provide supplementary eLearning study aids for students to use alongside their own studies, learning and revision. Our Products are only intended to be used by UK based students to assist them in their own studies in preparation for LPC examinations, much as a student might write their own notes to consolidate their learning. Our Products should not be used as a replacement or alternative to students’ own work, nor should students rely on the approach and learning methodologies or style adopted in our Products. Students should continue to conduct their own research, read around the subjects and review written materials (such as journals, cases and text books and online materials such as the gov.uk website) that they would otherwise review, and should not rely on our Products.
We do not accept any liability where students do not make every effort in their own studies nor where students are taught the law by a third party by way of a different approach, style or level of detail to that contained in our Products.
We do not warrant the accuracy of our Products. We have made resonable efforts to write, review and edit the contents of our material. However, we do not represent or warrant that our material is factually and legally accurate. It is always possible that mistakes, ambiguities and errors are contained in our material. Our material is also only up to date as at the date it is published on the Website and in the Product. Bear in mind that the law changes regularly and sometimes subtly. You should use caution when using and/or reading our Products. Rather than relying on the accuracy of our material, you should use our material as a study aid alongside your own official learning material and independently verify the accuracy of statements contained in our material.
We do not accept any liability for errors of fact or law contained in our Products.
We do not warrant the accuracy of our questions. While we have made every reasonable effort to conform our questions to the kind of questions you may encounter in LPC examinations, it is impossible for us to provide every kind of question that might come up and, as there are no past papers, we cannot guarantee that our questions will resemble or be like the LPC questions you come across in your examination.
We are not a legal updating or Q&A service (question and answer service) , and only issue updates and corrections as we see fit. We reserve the right to issue corrections and updates to our Products as we see fit, in our sole discretion.
We are not a law school. Our products are limited to the material in the Product and on the Website which are intended to be used as set out above. We do not undertake any further obligation to any person to provide further material, corrections, updates or supplementary information. Nor do we undertake any obligation to explain or elaborate on the content of our material, nor to in any way tutor or teach the content of our material.
We do not provide any type of advice. The Product is strictly intended for UK based students preparing for their LPC examination only. None of our material, nor any communication from us, provides (nor should be read as providing) any legal advice, counsel or information, or indeed study material for any other kind of examination or learning other than the LPC. No person is entitled to rely on any product, service, goods or communication from us as, or in the context of, legal or any other type of advice. No reference to any part of our material having been written, reviewed or edited by qualified lawyers implies the giving or receiving of any advice.
These terms and conditions may be amended from time to time. Notification of any changes will be made by us posting new terms onto the Website. In continuing to use the Product you confirm that you accept the current terms and conditions at the time you use the Product. If you do not accept the amended terms and conditions, then you must cease to use our Website and Products and the previous terms and conditions will continue to apply pending termination.
7. Cancellation Policy
Where Products are delivered to you immediately, you will not have the right to change your mind. In other cases, you may change your mind within fourteen (14) days of purchase, so long as materials have not been provided to you, downloaded, streamed or otherwise accessed. If you do wish to cancel, please contact us via email.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet the system requirements, including compatible hardware, software, telecommunications equipment and Internet service, prior to purchasing any content. We are unable to provide refunds where your access to the Products is inhibited due to insufficient system requirements.
We may restrict your access to the Products if you breach these terms, including without limitation:
a) A failure to make any payment due to us; or
b) Failure to provide accurate information that is necessary for us to provide the Products to you
In these circumstances, we will inform you in writing with seven (7) days’ notice that your access to the Products will be restricted.
8. Your Rights
This is a summary of your key legal rights. For more detailed information, you can visit www.adviceguide.org.uk, or if based outside the United Kingdom, we recommend you review your local statutory rights.
Under the laws of the United Kingdom, the Products must be as described, fit for purpose and of a satisfactory quality. If the Products are faulty, then you are entitled to ask for a repair or a replacement and if the fault cannot be fixed, or it has not been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, then you can get some or all of your money refunded.

10. Loss or Damages
We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is either obvious that it will happen or if we are both aware it might happen, such as where you have discussed the possibility with us during the sales process.
We are not liable to you in any way for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive or consequential damages of any character, including without limitation damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, loss of data, loss of productivity or contract or any and all other commercial damages or losses.
We do not exclude or limit our liability to you in any case where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products (summarised above at 6).
If the Products damage your device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice, following installation/download instructions, or having in place the minimum system requirements as advised by us.
Our liability to you for any damage to your computer system or loss of data resulting from the downloading of content is limited to the amount you have paid for the Products. In no event shall we be liable for damages in excess of this sum.

You agree not to upload any filed or post, distribute or publish any filed on the Website and/or Product that contain viruses, corrupted files, or malicious code or any other similar software programmes that may damage the operation of another’s computer.
You must not misuse the Product and/or Website by knowingly introducing viruses trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful.

You must not attack the Product and/or Website via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of-service attack.
By breaching this Clause 11, you would committee a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990.

In the event of such a breach, your membership and right to use the Product will cease immediately.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by viruses, a distribute denial-of-service attack or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programmes, data or other proprietary material due to your use of the Product or to your downloading of any material posted on it, or on any website linked to it.
12. Other Terms
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing when this happens, and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
You need our consent to transfer your rights under these terms to someone else. We may not agree to this as these terms grant a licence for your benefit only.
Nobody else has any rights under these terms – they are between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 is hereby disapplied.
If a court finds part of these terms illegal, then rest will continue in force.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
