Newbubbles operates the following terms and conditions in respect of its training services:
All purchasers of Newbubbles training services are expected to adhere to our terms and conditions of purchase. As a purchaser, you agree to comply with these terms and conditions in full and accept that these take precedence over local institutional purchasing agreements.
When bookings are made onto our open events, we will assume that the person has the purchasing authority to make such a request
For bookings identified as 'provisional' by the booker, we will hold those places as provisional until we receive confirmation from the booker that these places are confirmed. However, once the provisional booking reaches a point less than 7 days from the event date, the bookings are automatically converted to live bookings and it assumed the places have been officially requested.
We want to reward our customers by making bigger discounts available to them. From time to time, Newbubbles discount vouchers will be issued to our delegates to save money on future events with us. To use your voucher at your chosen event, give this to your Newbubbles representative at the sign-in desk. The voucher will entitle you to a % saving on the cost of this event (displayed on the voucher).
Please note: there are strict rules for the use of Newbubbles vouchers.
One voucher is valid for one person only.
Vouchers can only be used for a single event.
Vouchers can be transferable - you can give the voucher to another person to use.
You cannot claim a discount without the voucher (so please do not ask our staff to do this)
Some events are exempt from our discount scheme (please consult our event listings for these exemptions)
If you cancel within 1 calendar month of your training date, you will get a full refund.
If you cancel between 14 and 28 days of your training date, you will get a 50% refund
If you cancel within 14 days of your training date, you will not be entitled to a refund
Newbubbles reserves the right to cancel courses without notice in the event of unforseen circumstances or where the event does not achieve the minimum quota of delegates. Where this occurs, delegates will be entitled to a full refund.
Newbubbles accepts no liabilities or damages from delegates or their associate organisations for courses that are cancelled for the reasons stated above. This includes courses that would have awarded individuals and/or the organisation a certificate, a professional accreditation or a designated quality stamp conferred by the delegate's attendance.
Your training place is booked when you send us an e-mail or order form confirming the details of the event(s) you wish to attend. You will have a seven day cooling off period to cancel your reservation*. After this time, our cancellation charges apply.
*(this does not apply for reservations made within 14 days of the event date).

For every month that the invoice is late, we will re-issue the payee with a new invoice that will include our monthly late payment fees. We will charge a re-issue fee of £12.00. After 90 days of non-payment, we will refer the matter to a debt collection agency.
Late payments will also attract a charge of 3% a week on amount overdue until final payment is completed and cleared in our bank account. Late payment will render any applied booking discounts invalid. If the matter is referred to a debt collection agency, all costs related to this debt recovery will be charged to the payee's account.
We reserve the right to remove discount privileges on purchasers who do not comply with these payment terms.
When you book a Newbubbles trainer, you agree to send all requests for repeat business back to Newbubbles who will be delighted to organise a new event for you.

Changes to Published Programmes:
Newbubbles reserves the right to change the trainer, venue or subsistence arrangements without further notice, whilst ensuring that such changes can be reasonably met by delegates who have already booked onto a specified course. Changes will be notified to each delegate via e-mail, text message or telephone as soon as possible. A delegate is not entitled to a refund where Newbubbles identifies that the change could be 'reasonably accommodated' by the delegate.
Reasonable changes include:
substituting one trainer for another of equivalent experience and/or expertise
changing the location but remaining within a 5 mile radius of the original venue
changing the catering offer, whilst maintaining the quality and quantity of subsistence provided to each delegate
