At checkout, we may also collect your credit card number, expiration date, and security code. This information is passed to our payment gateway to process your purchase. The last 4 digits of your credit card number and the expiration date are saved by our site to use for reference and to send you an email if your credit card will expire before the next recurring payment.
A non-refundable deposit of £75.00 per person is required to secure your place; the balance of the course fee is due one month before the start date. We reserve the right to cancel courses if they are undersubscribed. If that occurred we would refund all monies paid, or offer you a transfer onto another course.
