Terms & Conditions
Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Full payment is required at the time of booking, and before the start of the course. The person making the booking must be over 18 and have parental responsibility or the ability and authority to make decisions regarding participants under the age of 18.
Money Made Simple reserves the right to cancel or change a course. In these circumstances we will endeavour to arrange an alternative date and offer participants a change of date, or, if this date is not convenient, an alternative course. If neither is possible, a full refund will be offered.
We provide students with material for each course which is for personal use and may not be reproduced for any commercial purpose.
We use email (and WhatsApp if needed) to communicate with participants signed up to our online courses. At the time of booking, the participant’s parent or guardian will be asked to consent to us communicating in this way with the participant.
Parent and/or guardian responsibility
Participants under the age of 18 years need to have a supervising adult whilst carrying out their activities on the programme.
