  9. The Order Process

  10. The order process is as follows:

    • After choosing your product, and before you pay, you need to register with us.  This is so we can tell you when you can access the Programme and enable us to provide it to you (i.e. the system knows who you are when you login)
    • At the point of payment, you will be transferred to a secure page on Paypal's website.  Paypal will take payment from your debit or credit card, or your own personal Paypal account, and will provide you with a payment receipt.
    • On receipt of your payment we shall email you
      • confirmation of your order
      • advice that the Programme is available to use
      • and a reminder of your login details (i.e. login ID and password).
    • At this point your order is accepted, the contract to provide the service is formed and the subscription period begins.

  11. Cancellation Rights and Refunds

  12. By law, consumers in the European Union have a 7 day 'cooling off period' during which time they can cancel a contract for the purchase of an item or service.

    If you change your mind about purchasing the programme within 7 days of the day after the purchase date simply contact us (at admin@numbershed.co.uk) stating your name, your Order Reference Number and Registration Number (you will find these on your welcome email).   On receipt of this notification we will cancel your membership and you will receive a full refund within 30 days.

    In addition to this, we also offer a money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with the programme within 30 days of the purchase date.   The terms of this offer are as follows:
    • Claims must be received by us within 30 days of your purchase date.
    • We will refund the full purchase price (less 50p processing fee).
    • Refunds will be to the same method of payment as your original payment. Please allow 4 weeks for processing.
    • A customer is only entitled to receive one refund per level under this money back guarantee. If the same level is purchased again, this offer will not apply.
    • We reserve the right to amend or withdraw the money back guarantee at any time. Any such change will not apply to contracts already in place.

    If you are not satisfied simply send us a message from our Support Centre (this will help us to access your records quickly).   Or, if this is not possible, send an email to us at admin@numbershed.co.uk quoting your Order Reference Number and Membership Number (as provided in the order confirmation and welcome email).   It would really help us if you could also tell us why you are not satisfied with the programme.

    This paragraph does not affect your rights in the event that you have a genuine and valid complaint about the way we have provided a Practice Programme to you.

  13. Dissatisfaction with the Practice Programme

  14. Our most important task is to ensure your absolute satisfaction.  We will always strive to reach that target.  However, we acknowledge that mistakes are made occasionally.  If you are not wholly satisfied with the Practice Programme, please tell us at the earliest opportunity:

    • exactly why you think we have failed, the date, if relevant, of the failure, when and how you discovered the failure and the result of the failure;
    • your suggestion as to action we should take to resolve the situation and restore your faith in us.

    To do this, please contact us through our Support Centre (see Parents' Page).  This will help us to quickly identify you and the Practice Programme you have bought.

  15. Amending and Renewing Membership

  16. Users can check and amend their registration details by going to Membership Page.  Since we do not process payments, no personal financial details are stored here.  You agree to provide and continue to provide accurate, up to date, and complete information about yourself.

    Before the expiry of the period for which you have paid, we shall send you a message to your registered email address to tell you that your licence to use the programme is shortly to expire and to invite you to renew.  At any time, you may go to the "Membership" page of our Site to access your membership information and renew your subscription for a further period.

    If the subscription is not renewed, then the User no longer has access to the account or records associated with the account.  We reserve the right to delete the stored data after the User has ceased to subscribe.

  17. Linking to Our Site

  18. You can create a hyperlink to the home page of our Site, for the purpose of promoting an interest common to both of us, without specific permission on condition that you do not:
