We are Ark Innovative Technologies & Services Limited, a limited company registered in Ireland with company number 600940 (“we” “us” “the Company”). Our office is The Ark HQ, Cube Building, Monahan Road, Cork, T12 H1XY.
To cancel a contract, you need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. Please notify us of your decision to cancel by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting the electronic purchase sale number, the date of the transaction and the items purchased. This letter must contain a categorical statement that goods that have been delivered have not been copied, duplicated or used in any way.
This cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
Sealed audio or sealed video recordings, or sealed computer software, once these products are unsealed after you receive them;
Software or electronic subscription products or downloadable templates, documents, books or reports in pdf or other electronic formats (digital content, the value of which is inherent in the information and/or analysis that has been delivered and which, by its nature, cannot be returned) in respect of which consumers waive, on receipt of the digital content, any right of contract cancellation;
Any products that become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery;
Any products that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised;
Any services where you have specifically requested a visit to carry out urgent repairs or maintenance;
Any services after the service have been fully performed. Where you have requested that we commence provision of any service, whether training or consultancy, within a period of 14 days from the day on which the service was purchased, then you may still cancel the service during the cancellation period, but you will have to pay us an amount that is in proportion to the services already provided. Further terms, set out below, apply specifically to the purchase of training courses through our sites.
If you cancel your contract, we will:
refund you the price you paid for the products. However, please note that we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods if this has been caused by your handling them in a way that would not be permitted in a shop.
We will refund you on the credit or debit card you used to pay. If you paid via PayPal or some similar payment processor or bank transfer, we would refund by the same route.
Price and Payment
The product’s price (which may or may not include VAT) will be the price indicated on our site when you place your order through our website. We take care to ensure that the product’s price advised to you is correct, but it is always possible that errors may occur. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price listed on our website, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. Payment is due in full at the point you place your order. If we cannot accept your order, we will refund you via your original payment method.
The cost of delivery will be as displayed on our website. Digital content will be made available on acceptance of your order. Where the product is a service, we will begin delivery of the service on the date stated during the order process.
Training course terms and conditions
All Ark Innovative Technologies & Services Limited training courses, including all those for which we act as booking agents for third-party training providers, are subject to the terms and conditions set out below and, by booking a training course or a third-party training course through us, our customers (‘you’) accept these terms and conditions.
Prices for individual courses are as advertised on our website and are exclusive of VAT. Where required, VAT will be added to the advertised price to arrive at the final total cost. The course price includes trainers’ time, training rooms and necessary facilities, all necessary training materials, and morning and/or afternoon refreshments. It does not include travelling or other subsistence costs.
Bookings can be made by credit card online via our website www.thearkhq.com by telephone (021 601 9319), by sending a booking form by email to email@example.com our sales office.
Once a booking has been accepted, cancellation terms (below) apply.
Delegate cancellation charges
You may cancel your booking without penalty, providing written notice within 7 days of originally booking the course. No refunds will be given if course participants fail to attend/complete a course for which you have booked.
Delegates may in certain circumstances, be transferred from one course to another, or alternative delegates may be substituted for those already booked on a course.
Ark (and its selected training partners) reserves the right to cancel training courses. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Ark will not be liable to you in contract, tort, negligence or otherwise for any loss, damage, costs or expenses of any nature whatsoever incurred or suffered by you as a direct, indirect, special or consequential nature arising from such cancellation.
Those booking the course are responsible for ensuring that the backgrounds of your delegates are suitable for the training course(s) that they are attending. Ark will not be liable for any refund if delegates decide that the course material is inappropriate for them or where they are unable to participate fully for any reason. In no circumstances will Ark be liable to refund course fees.
Copyright and intellectual property
All copyright and other intellectual property rights in or relating to any course materials provided or made available in connection with the course are and remain the sole property of Ark and/or its third-party providers. Course materials may not be used, copied, reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, distributed or transmitted in whole or in part, or in any form or by any means, whether electronically, mechanically or otherwise, or translated into any language, without the prior written permission of Ark and/or its third-party providers.
Our right to terminate or suspend our contract with you
We may terminate or suspend our contact with you at any time if:
If we end our contract with you in these circumstances, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for products we have not provided, but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of you breaking your contract.
We may also have to suspend the supply of a product for technical reasons or comply with applicable law. We will aim to contact you in advance in these circumstances, but this will not always be possible. You may contact us to end your contract for a product if we suspend it or tell you we will suspend it in each case for more than 14 days, and we will refund any sums you have paid in each case advance for the product.
You do not make payment when due;
You do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver or otherwise supply the products to you;
You do not, within a reasonable time, provide us with the information we need to carry out our obligations under the contract; or
You become, or in our reasonable opinion are likely to become, insolvent.
Effect of Termination
The parties’ accrued rights, remedies, obligations, and liabilities as at expiry or termination shall be unaffected. The provisions of the contract expressed to survive, together with those which are intended to survive termination, shall survive the termination of the contract.
