Terms and Conditions for Bookings

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. You should understand that by booking any Harmony Courses, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. You should print a copy of these terms and conditions for future reference.

1. Description and Pricing of Courses

All prices quoted are exclusive of VAT at the current rate. Although we make every effort to ensure the descriptions and prices quoted are correct, mistakes may sometimes be made. If a mistake is discovered in the price of the Course that you have booked, we will tell you and give you the option of either reconfirming your booking at the correct price or cancelling your booking. Harmony reserves the right to change prices listed without notice. Harmony also reserves the right to refuse to supply to any individual or company. It is the Student’s responsibility to ensure they are booked on the correct course for their abilities. Certification is not guaranteed as minimum standards must be reached, but certification will not be unreasonably withheld.

2. Course Kits

Nail Harmony UK training courses are high level product and skill-building training courses using Nail Harmony, All That Jazz or Morgan Taylor products. We are unable to teach with LED lamps or products (including tips, files and buffers) from any other brand (except in the case of 36w UV lamps). Therefore students will be required to purchase suitable Nail Harmony and/or All That Jazz and/or Morgan Taylor individual products or full kits in order to successfully complete the course(s) they have booked. Students must also be prepared that further replenishment products may be required as their course runs and homework is completed. Nail Harmony UK will not require you to re-purchase items you already own but we will require proof of purchase from an authorised source by way of receipts or invoices where evidence cannot be found of their purchase directly through Nail Harmony UK or it's subsidiaries. This will be required prior to the course date. Arrival on the course without providing proof of purchase from an authorised source may result in the student being asked to leave the course. An exception to this rule would be in the case of the Georgie Smedley Ltd E-File course, where any brand of good quality e-file may be used. If you have not trained with Nail Harmony L&P systems, you may bring your chosen L&P brand of choice for the E-File training only.

3. Provisional Bookings

If a booking for a Course is made online, by email or over the telephone and is not accompanied by full payment or a formal purchase order (sent either by post or by email), the booking will be deemed to be provisional (“Provisional Booking”). Provisional Bookings are unconfirmed and as such the Student's place cannot be guaranteed. Provisional Bookings cannot be made online and so all information will be deleted on exiting the website.

When payment has been received in full, or a formal purchase order has been provided (either by email or by post), the individuals’ place on the Course will then be confirmed and a binding contract will have been entered into between Harmony and the booking party. Please refer further to the “How to pay” section below.]

4. Cancellation of Courses by Harmony

The Harmony Educator reserves the right to cancel or change a booked date by giving 14 days notice, except in cases of emergencies, when we reserve the right to give less notice. If the Harmony Educator cancels the course, the course payment will transfer to the next mutually convenient date.

Harmony and the Harmony Educator cannot be held responsible for costs, loss of earnings or accommodation and travel expenses due to course cancellations.

While ever effort will be made to notify you in writing of course cancellations, please accept that in some circumstances this written communication may take the form of an email or text message in order for the cancellation to be notified to you as quickly as possible.

5. How to Pay

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Solo and Electron, except in the cases of weekly payments for evening classes where cash only is accepted (your initial payment may be paid by card). We do not accept American Express.

If paying by purchase order, the invoice will need to be addressed to the booker or student’s employer. Payment must be made within 30 days from the date of the invoice or if the booking is made less than 30 days before the Course date, payment is required before the Course date in all circumstances.

Payment can be made in the following ways:

  • • Credit or debit card;
  • • Direct bank transfer to the Nail Harmony UK bank account, details of which can be found on your invoice;
  • • Cheques by post made payable to “Nail Harmony UK” and must clear prior to course commencement;
  • • Bankers’ draft by post made payable to “Nail Harmony UK”;

Please note that we do not accept payment by cash (except in the case of weekly payments for evening classes) or payments in any currency other than UK pounds sterling.

You are advised to notify the Education Team in advance if you wish to pay by direct bank transfer to ensure the swift confirmation of your booking. You will not be eligible to attend the Course until full payment is received.

In the case of late bookings payment must be made prior to attendance of the Course. If payment is not made prior to the Student attending the Course Harmony reserves the right to refuse admission until payment has been made in full.

6. VAT & Card Charges

Fees quoted are exclusive of VAT, which will be shown separately on the invoice. A VAT invoice will be sent to cover your payment. Fees will not be charged for payment via debit cards, credit cards, direct bank transfer, bankers draft or cheques but reasonable administrative charges will apply if cheques are returned unpaid.

7. Copyright

All materials (“Harmony Materials”) provided for Harmony Courses including manuals, graphics, code, text products, software, audio, music and design are owned by Harmony or Harmony’ third party Course providers. No content in whole or in part of the Harmony Materials may be copied, reproduced, uploaded, posted, displayed, linked to or used in any way without the prior written permission of Harmony. Any such use is strictly prohibited and will constitute an infringement of the copyright and other intellectual property rights of Harmony, or in the case of material licensed to Harmony, the owner of such materials.

8. Cancellations by Customers

Where a firm booking has been accepted by Harmony and is subsequently cancelled, the customer will be liable for the following charges. All cancellations must be received in writing (emails are acceptable).

Over 14 working days’ notice - Full refund or transfer to another date.

Less than 14 working days’ notice - 50% of booking charged, with the 50% remaining to be refunded or transferred to another date.

Less than 7 working days’ notice - 100% booking fee charged.

Polygel Training booked and paid for at trade shows where product has been supplied prior to the training is non-refundable under any circumstances. Only alternative dates will be offered.

The above cancellation conditions apply to ALL Harmony Courses, Skill-Building Classes and Workshops, (including the Universal Technician Course). You will be required to pay again for any day or days of a course that you have failed to attend unless the above notice conditions are met. If sufficient notice is given, your Educator may choose to rearrange the training to a mutually convenient date at their discretion, without additional charge.

In the case of pay weekly classes, the weekly payment is due and payable even in the case of non-attendance by the student. If the Educator rearranges or is unable to cover the pay weekly class on a particular date, then a further date will be offered at no additional charge to the student. Any additional classes that may be required in order to complete the course owing to missed classes on behalf of the student will be at the additional expense of the student.

9. Refunds

If you wish to exercise your right to cancel your booking, Harmony will refund the fees paid according to the above cancellation policy. If payment for the order was originally made by credit card, any refund will be made back to the same card. If payment for the order was made by another method, such as cheque or bankers’ draft, direct bank transfer will make a refund to a bank account that you elect.

No refund will be given for non-attendance or non-completion of a course, nor will it be transferred to an alternative date. In addition, once payment has been made, products and training must be received within 6 months of invoice date. Once this time has elapsed, refunds cannot be issued.

10. Written communications

We will contact you by e-mail or provide you with information by posting notices on our website. For contractual purposes, you agree to this electronic means of communication and you acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.

11. Specific needs

12. Claims

Claims arising from Harmony Education or about a Harmony Educator must be brought to the attention of the Head of Education or the Managing Director of Nail Harmony UK in writing within 7 days of the course taking place. Claims made outside of this time limit will not be accepted.
