Instructor led class orders: Once you place an order, the payment obligation cannot be cancelled and the sum paid is non-refundable (except as otherwise specified in this agreement).

You may not:
* make the products or materials resulting from the services available in any manner to any third party for use in the third party’s business operations (unless such access is expressly permitted for the specific program license or materials from the services you have acquired).
Unless the parties have signed a separate agreement containing more specific provisions in relation to confidentiality (in which case the provisions of such agreement will continue to apply in lieu of this clause), each party will keep any confidential information disclosed by the other secret. Neither party may use or take advantage of any such confidential information without the discloser’s consent, even after the end of an engagement. This obligation does not apply to (i) information known to the receiver before disclosure by the other party, or (ii) information which becomes public knowledge without fault on the part of the receiver, or (iii) disclosures made to the extent required by some applicable legal or regulatory requirement.
McKenzie Mills Partnership Ltd is not liable for any loss or damage in excess of 100% of the total fees payable in respect of an engagement, except where it may not lawfully exclude or limit liability. Each party expressly excludes liability for consequential loss or damage, loss of profit, business, revenue, goodwill or anticipated savings.

Relationship between parties
You are a client of BetterBusiness-Skills and it is not the intention of either to create or allow to arise any employee/employer relationship. Each party will indemnify the other against any claims brought by or in relation to its own employees, whether such claims relate to employment, tax, national insurance, or otherwise.
Consultant Not an Employee. The Consultant or personnel who may be delivering the Services under this Agreement are not employees of the Client and are not entitled to receive any employment benefits from the Client. Further, the Client shall not be required to make contributions for tax, national insurance, pension plans, workers’ compensation or similar premiums, employer health tax and other similar levies on behalf of any of the BetterBusiness-Skills employees or personnel.
Neither party shall be responsible for failure or delay of performance if caused by: an act of war, hostility, or sabotage; act of God; pandemic; electrical, internet, or telecommunication outage that is not caused by the obligated party; government restrictions (including the denial or cancellation of any export or other license); or other event outside the reasonable control of the obligated party. Both parties will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event. If such event continues for more than 90 days, either party may cancel unperformed services upon written notice. This section does not excuse either party’s obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal disaster recovery procedures or your obligation to pay for services provided.
You agree that BetterBusiness-Skills may engage BetterBusiness-Skills affiliates and third-party subcontractors to assist in delivering the products and services.
You agree that this agreement and the information that is incorporated into this agreement by written reference (including reference to information contained in a URL or referenced policy), together with the applicable order, are the complete agreement for the products and/or services ordered by you, and that this agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or representations, written or oral, regarding such products and/or services. If any term of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain effective. It is expressly agreed that the terms of this agreement and any BetterBusiness-Skills ordering document shall supersede the terms in any purchase order or other non-BetterBusiness-Skills ordering document and no terms included in any such purchase order or other non-BetterBusiness-Skills ordering document shall apply to the products and/or services ordered. This agreement and ordering documents may not be modified, and the rights and restrictions may not be altered or waived except in writing, signed or accepted online through the BetterBusiness-Skills website by authorised representatives of you and of BetterBusiness-Skills. Any notice required under this agreement shall be provided to the other party in writing.

In consideration for being granted access to the class location (the “Premises”), you hereby waive any and all claims against BetterBusiness-Skills and the owners of the Premises (if BetterBusiness-Skills is not the owner), and their officers, directors, employees and agents (the “Released Parties”) for loss, theft, destruction or damage to any property, including without limitation the business or personal property of your or your employees, agents, guests, invitees or representatives, in, on, or about the Premises, and for injuries to you or your employees, agents, guests, invitees or representatives, in, on, or about the Premises. The Released Parties shall bear no responsibility for the safety of you or your employees, agents, guests, invitees or representatives or their business or personal property while in, on, or about the Premises. This paragraph does not apply to any damages directly caused by the Released Parties’ gross negligence or intentional misconduct.
