1. Foreword

1.1. These terms set out the obligations between you (the Client) and CMP (CMP, We, us, or Our). These terms explain what happens once you have confirmed a booking and how we manage your attendance and data.

2.2. Written confirmation will be sent from CMP to you within 5 working days of your booking.

2.3. Online bookings can be withdrawn within 15 working days of booking, without penalty, to convey the bookers rights under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.

2.4. Joining instructions will be sent within 15 working days of the event starting.

4.1. CMP reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a Public Course and in these situations every effort will be made to accommodate delegates on an alternative course or refund payment in full.

4.2. CMP cannot be held responsible for any extra costs incurred as a result of a cancelled or relocated training course.

4.3. Cancellation fees are charged in accordance with 4.5 below, as a percentage of the total value of the course fee, as set out in your booking confirmation. Nonattendance on a course constitutes a cancellation.

4.8. Changing your booking (postponing) to a later course will attract an administration fee of £250. Postponements must be notified to us in writing at least 35 working days before the start of the course, with new course dates chosen, or it will be treated as a cancellation.

5.3. Special Offers on courses are periodically available and are not available to delegates who booked or paid for the public course prior to the special offer
becoming available.

6. Confidentiality and Data Protection

6.1. CMP acts as a data controller under the Data Protection act 2018 and EU’s GPDR, and the client is also a data controller. Each party shall comply with its own regulatory and legal obligations to comply with relevant legislations for processing data.

6.2. We have identified that the lawful bases for our data use under this engagement are:

  • The ‘legitimate interest’ of the parties and those involved in the course
  • Compliance with our ‘legal obligations’
  • Where relevant, to ensure the performance of a ‘contract’ between us

6.3. The parties shall cooperate with each other to ensure mutual compliance under relevant legislation, at the reasonable expense of the party requesting cooperation.

6.4. The Client will notify CMP of any special requirements regarding confidentiality.

6.5. Where applicable, any correspondence with delegates from CMP will be sent by email to the address given to us by the delegate in their pre-course information.

7. Qualification

7.1. Registrants on endorsed or accredited courses should note that successful completion of such courses requires delegates to demonstrate an understanding of the underlying principles and capability in the competencies concerned.

7.2. CMP will make every reasonable effort to ensure a high standard of training and impartiality in such awards, but no guarantee is given that every participant attending will achieve the qualification.

8. Copyright

8.1. The copyright and all other intellectual property rights in all course materials remain the sole and exclusive property of CMP Resolutions.

10.2. CMP will not be liable to the Client or its employees for any act or omission in the course of delivering our services save in relation to the consequences of conscious and deliberate acts of bad faith.

10.3. In the event of any CMP employee or subcontractor being requested to take part in a subsequent process, such as legal proceedings or an appeal, CMP’s daily charges apply, these fees will include time in preparation, meetings and involvement in the process.

12. Disputes

12.1. These terms and conditions shall be governed by English Law and any matters arising in relation to them are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.

12.2. The client agrees that once an invoice is issued, any queries or disputes must be raised within 28 days of the issue date. Once the 28 days have passed the client shall be deemed to have acknowledged the accuracy and validity of the invoice.
