The terms and conditions below specifically relate to the courses that can be bought from Elena Peresvetova Fine Art.

Please read these terms and conditions in full before you buy any course from the Author. If you buy any of the courses from the Author, you agree to be legally bound by these Terms and Conditions.

Course details

The complete list of courses provided by the Author and available tariffs is published in the Courses section of the web-site https://www.peresvetova.com/courses.html .

This information includes:
  • the main characteristics of the courses you want to buy;
  • the information about the Author, the way of conducting the course and contact details;
  • the total fee of the course including any taxes and
  • cancellation procedure.

Ordering a course

Any information including fee structure that is published on a course web-site page does not form a binding offer to supply such a course.

When you decide to place an order for a course and execute a payment, this is when you offer to buy such a course from the Author.

The Author will accept your order when you will receive email to confirm this (Confirmation E-mail). At this point a legally binding contract will be in place between you and the Author.

The Author may contact you to say that they do not accept your order. In this case, the Author will try to tell you promptly why the order is not accepted. This is typically for the following reasons:
  • the Author cannot carry out the course;
  • failure to authorize your payment;
  • you are not allowed to buy the course from the Author;
  • the Author is not allowed to sell the course to you;
  • there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the course.

You may transfer to an alternative course without charge.

If you are under the age of 18 you may not buy any course from the Author.

Carrying out of the course

The course must be paid in full to guarantee an entrance to the course.

All the courses are carried out online. The following information will be specified on a course web-page:
  • whether the course is live, or video recorded
  • the timeframe of the course including all specific timings for live sessions

The delivery of the course might be affected by the events beyond Author’s control. If so, there might be a delay before the Author can restart the course. The Author will try to restart the course as soon as those events have been fixed, making a reasonable effort to limit the impact of this change and keeping you informed of the circumstances.

In the unlikely event that the Author cancels an event and does not reschedule, the Author will refund any pre-paid booking fees. Liability will be limited to the amount of the booking fee paid.

Course Fees

The structure of course fees will be as quoted on the web-site. All fees on the Web-site are stated in British Pound Sterling and follow the GBP currency sign - £.

The course fees are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders, for which a Confirmation Email has already been sent. If the Author has to change any key information once a legally binding contract between you and the Author is made, they can only do this if you agree to it.

The Author’s website refers to a number of courses and it is always possible that, despite their best efforts, some of the courses listed on the website may be incorrectly priced. The Author will verify fees as part of preparing the Confirmation E-mail and will get in contact with you if there are any deviations prior to the dispatch of the Confirmation E-mail.

The author is under no obligation to provide the course to you at the incorrect fee, even the Confirmation E-mail has been sent to you, if the fee error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mistake.

All deposits and course fees are non-refundable unless you cancel within 14 days after payment.

Rights to cancel the course

The Author reserves the right to terminate the course immediately without liability if in their opinion you cause disruption on any course or take any action which brings the Author (or any of their employees or sub-contractors) into disrepute or adversely affects their goodwill or reputation.

You have the right to cancel the course within 14 days without giving any reason. The cancellation period will expire after 14 days starting from the date of payment.

To exercise the right to cancel the course, you must inform the Author of your decision to cancel via email info@peresvetova.com

In case the course starts during the 14-day cancellation period, you agree to enter the course before 14-day cancellation period expires.

You still have the right to change your mind and cancel the course during 14-day cancellation period, however, the Author will charge you for the cost of the course that was carried out until the time when you tell the Author that you want to cancel the course. The amount the Author charges you will be proportional to the course that has been carried out.

You acknowledge, however, that you will lose the right to change your mind and cancel the contract during the 14-day cancellation period once the course has been fully carried out by the Author. If this happens, the Author will charge you for the full cost of the course that was carried out.

The reimbursement will be made without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which the Author was informed about your decision to cancel the course.

The reimbursement will be made using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction.

Social Media

For promotional purposes, there may be a professional photographer, videographer or live social media streaming taking place during the course.

You have the right to post information about the course on your social media accounts, tagging the Author’s respective social media channel.
