11. Price and payment
11.1 Where to find the price for the appointment. The price of the appointment (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the webpages when you make a booking. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the booking advised to you is correct. However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of your booking.
11.2 What happens if we got the price wrong. We are reliant on the information provided by the therapist. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the appointments may be incorrectly priced. Where the appointment's correct price at your booking date is less than our stated price at your booking date, we will charge the lower amount. If the booking's correct price at your booking date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, cancel the booking and refund you any sums you have paid.
11.3 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with most major credit and debit cards. You will pay for the therapy in full 24 hours prior to the appointment.
11.4 What to do if you think a price is wrong. If you think the price of the booking is wrong please contact the therapist promptly. If you cannot resolve it with the therapist, please email us at email@example.com.
12. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
12.1 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, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the booking process.
12.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you 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 as summarised at clause 10.2.
13. How we may use your personal information
14. Other important terms
14.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to cancel your booking.
14.2 You need our consent to transfer your booking to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. We may require the person to whom the booking is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they consent.
14.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). The booking is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
14.4 If a court finds part of these terms illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
14.5 Even if we delay in enforcing these terms, we can still enforce them 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 breach of these terms, 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.
14.6 Which laws apply to these terms and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English and Welsh law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English and Welsh courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English and Welsh courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English and Welsh courts.
