Updated July 2020 – During the current global crisis, we have amended our standard cancellation policy to ensure students can book a class with confidence. Until further notice, if you book a class by either paying a deposit, paying by instalments or paying in full you will get a full refund of payment(s) made in the following circumstances:-
- If you have to cancel your place if you contract the Coronavirus.
- Having someone living in the same place as you contract the Coronavirus and having to self isolate.
- Having someone living in the same place as you test positive for the Coronavirus and being advised to self isolate.
- If CSACJ have to move the class dates and you cannot commit to the new dates.
- If the government prohibits travel away from your home in your local area.
- If the government imposes restrictions which prevent people coming to Cornwall.
Classes running in 2020
As a class date approaches, you will receive an email from CSACJ giving you a deadline by which you MUST request a refund if you cannot attend. This will be your chance to make a choice about coming even if you do not fulfil any of the criteria listed above, for instance if you are fearful of travelling or staying away from home.
After that deadline, you are committed to attend the class or course and NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN unless you fall into one of the categories above.
In the event that CSACJ have to cancel a class, you will get a full refund in line with our normal policy. Please note – We will give you as much notice as possible, however, we cannot be held responsible for your travel or accommodation costs.
Coupons offering a discount are only valid for the specific classes, courses or products specified. They have a limited life and once they have expired they can no longer be used. Once a class, course or product is sold out, the coupon can no longer be used for that item. Full payment is required at the point of booking. Once a discounted class or course has been booked and paid for, it is subject to our standard cancellation policy. In the event that a class or course is cancelled by CSACJ, a refund will be given for the amount paid, not the full value of the class.
Cancellation Policy – currently suspended, see above
Places on our courses and classes are limited. Please check the dates and class or course content BEFORE booking as we regret that we cannot offer refunds or transfers to another date on any of our courses if you are unable to attend the date you have booked for any reason. You may request to transfer your place to someone else you know, just let us know the attendees name has changed and their email address so we can send them the joining instructions.
If you are booked on a class or course and you do not turn up on the day for any reason, no refund will be given.
Please always phone to let us know if you can’t attend or are going to be late.
Please note, if you secure your place on a class by paying a deposit, the deposit you paid is non-refundable. Every instalment payment made is also non-refundable.
Our class descriptions on the website explain the content of the class, the level of previous experience required and any additional costs or purchases you may incur in attending the class. It is your responsibility to ensure you book on a relevant class and fully understand what is involved, additional costs you will have to pay and our terms and conditions before you book. By booking and paying for a class, you confirm your agreement to these these terms.
Health and Safety Rules
If you turn up and we consider you to be incapable of working safely due to alcohol, drugs or general ill-health or fatigue, you will be excluded from the class with no refund. We reserve the right to exclude any student we feel may be a danger to themselves or other students.
All our classes are professionally run and most involve hot work – butane or propane torches – chemicals and/or acids, spinning equipment and heavy tools. Students must come dressed appropriately for this environment. Closed in shoes, NO SANDALS, FLIP FLOPS ETC are allowed in the studio. Floaty, flammable fabrics should not be worn, dangling sleeves, scarves etc are also a hazard. Aprons are available in the studio to protect your clothes but it is prudent to wear clothes you are not worried about getting dirty.
Some activities require you to wear protective goggles and/or masks. All health and safety rules must be observed at all times. If you arrive at the studio wearing inappropriate clothes or open shoes/sandals you will not be allowed to participate in activities involving hot work, chemicals or heavy tools. This is for your safety so please ensure you have a professional approach when you attend our classes.
We strongly suggest you take out travel insurance and check if this covers the class costs should you have to cancel.
If we have to cancel a class or course
Occasionally we may have to cancel a course. You will always be offered the choice of an alternative date or a refund. We will give you as much notice as possible, however, we cannot be held responsible for your travel or accommodation costs.
When you book a place you are agreeing to the above terms and conditions.
