1.3 You can only pay for HITuni Services and Products using a debit card or credit card, or as otherwise detailed in our payment pages. We use a third party payment provider to process payments on our web site and you should carefully read the terms and conditions you enter into with them before making any payment for Products or Services. Payment for the Services and Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance unless we agree otherwise in writing. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until we dispatch your order or provide you with access to our Services.
1.4 Our payment pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process. After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that contains the information you need in order to access the Services and/or Course Materials (Access Confirmation) or by sending you an e-mail to confirm that physical products have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you Access or Dispatch Confirmation. If we are unable to supply you with a Product from our website, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date or because of an error in the price on our site, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.
1.5 The prices of the Services and Products on our web sites will be as quoted on our web sites at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Services and/or Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. Prices for our Services/Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed. The price of Services/Products includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Services/Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect. The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
1.6 Our site contains a large number of Products/Services. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services/Products on our websites may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Services/Products you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Services/Products at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Services/Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
1.7 If you are a consumer, you have the right to cancel this CA within 14 days without giving any reason. However, due to the way in which our Services are provided, some of your cancellation rights under the under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 will not apply. If you cancel this CA, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you. However, if you have requested that we start providing services to you during the 14 day cancellation period, on cancellation, you will pay us an amount which is in proportion to the cost of services which have been provided to you to that point, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract. Normal cancellation rights apply in relation to the Products you purchase from us.
