Terms and Conditions

Privacy Policy

  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
  • We will collect and use of personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations apply to students who pay for Private Online Classes or Self-Study Courses through Britlish.

Cancellation of booked classes

You can cancel a booked class by using the automatic cancellation feature of the booking calendar. This is available to you as soon as you book your classes and full instructions are provided.

You must cancel any booked class at least 24 hours before the start time (Teacher Time). If you do not give at least 24 hours' notice of cancellation of a booked class, it will be deemed a missed class and the minutes booked will be deducted from your account as if you had taken the class.

If you give more than 24 hours' notice, the minutes booked will not be lost and you are free to use them when you wish.

Missed Classes

If you miss a class for any reason, without giving 24 hours' advance warning, you will lose the minutes that would have been used if you had taken the class.

Transfer of Class Time

For technical reasons, class time you have bought is not transferable and can only be used by the student to whose account the minutes were added. For companies who have a number of employees taking classes through Britlish the minutes bought will be allocated as needed to each employee taking classes. I am happy to discuss special arrangements for such clients.

Introductory Classes

An Introductory Class time and date must be agreed between you and me before the class. I will confirm this by email.

Students must make every effort to attend the Introductory Class at the agreed time and date. If a student fails to take the class at the agreed time and date, another date may be offered. The student must agree to this second offer of a class time and date. This will be confirmed by email.

Students must make every effort to attend the Introductory Class at the second agreed time and date. If a student fails to take the Introductory Class at the second agreed time and date, no further class times or dates will be offered. No refunds will be given.

However, depending on the circumstances, I may, at my discretion, reschedule the Introductory Class a second time.

Class Start Time

Classes start promptly at the time booked. Classes last for as long as the student has requested, up to a maximum of 2 hours - 120 minutes. If you attend class late, the class will nevertheless have begun from the booked time.

If you are more than 15 minutes late for the class, the class will not be started and will be considered to be missed.

Refund Policy

Applies to all personal teaching services (one-2-one classes) provided by Richard at Britlish.

Introductory Class - the fee charged for the Introductory Class is non-refundable once the time and date of the arranged class has passed. The arranged class time is the time and date agreed between you the student and me the teacher by email. Introductory classes can be booked up to six months from the time and date of purchase.

Minutes - If you are not completely satisfied with your classes, you can have a refund for any remaining minutes bought within 14 days of your first purchase. After 14 days have passed since you took your first online class with me, no refund will be given. Any refund given will be of remaining minutes less payment procesessing fees.

Technical Failure

You are responsible for ensuring that you have a fast enough Internet connection, working headphones or speakers, and a working microphone at the time of your booked class. A webcam is optional.

If you cannot take your class because of problems with your equipment or Internet connection, the class will be classed as missed and all booked minutes will be deducted from your account.

If I am unable to give your class at the booked time for any reason beyond my control, you can use the minutes to book a new class at a time and date to suit you. However, no refunds will be given.

How Long are Your Bought Minutes Valid For?

Any standard minutes are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.

Special offer minutes are valid for a period of 1 month (30 days) from the date you book your first class after purchase as stated at the time of purchase, or for the number of days indicated at the time of purchase.

Expired mintues will be removed from a students account without prior notice. It is up to the student to make sure that they use the minutes that they have paid for in the time allowed.

Public Holidays

During periods of public holidays in Spain, such as Christmas and Easter, and on any other normal working day on which I am not available, an equivalent number of days will be added to the 30 day expiry period of a student's purchased classes covering such a period. This is to ensure that, in the interests of fairness, students always have a minimum of 30 days available over which to book their classes. These additional days will only be added for days which I am not available, and will no time will be added for holidays of days off that a student chooses to take.

Can I give my unused minutes to someone else?

Minutes are not transferable between different student accounts.

Booking Classes

Students must give 24-hours notice when booking classes and all classes must be booked through the student class booking form. Any classes requested with less than 24-hours may well be refused.

Digital Products

Due to the nature of downloadable digital products, refunds cannot be given. If you are genuinely disappointed in any digital product you have bought, please let me know as soon as possible and I will work with you to see how best we can satisfy your expectations.
