Please note that the payment process is handled on our behalf by a third-party payment services provider – we do not have access to any of your payment card details. Please see our privacy policy for further details on this. Once you have paid,
we will send you an order confirmation, at which point the contract between us for the supply of the eLearning shall come into force. You will then be re-directed to our LMS where you will be asked to register for an LMS account (or if you have one already, login, and then you will be able to access your e-Workout).

6.5 You will have the opportunity to identify and correct input errors prior to making your order by checking your basket before confirming your purchase.
