Provision of the Services

We will provide you with access to the Course Materials once you have enrolled. You will need to log on using your chosen user name and password to access the course materials on-line.

You can log onto the Website from any computer using your assigned user name and password but you should be aware that not all computers have the software that will enable you to access all of the Course Materials. Please check the software requirements held within the course catalogue on the Website. In the event that your computer does not have the necessary course players installed, the catalogue will inform you of this and will provide a link to a web-page or a website which will allow you to download the player that will enable you to access the Course Materials. If this does not help you should contact Innergy, details of which will be on the Website.

If learners require technical advice they should always contact their Innergy provider in the first instance.

You acknowledge and accept that periods of downtime may be required in respect of the Innergy IT infrastructure in the circumstances outlined in these Terms and that technical support may not be available during such periods of downtime. You accept that you will not have a claim for breach of contract (either against us or your Innergy provider) or otherwise in respect of such period of unavailability.

We exclude all other warranties, express or implied, as to the performance and availability of the technical support service, except as expressly stated in these Terms and Conditions. We do not guarantee that the technical advice provided by us will resolve your technical problems.  If you decide to take advantage of such technical advice, you should ensure that such advice is strictly followed. If the technical advice provided by us does not resolve your technical problem, you will have a number of options under your contract with your Innergy provider as outlined in Paragraph 12.

Your Right to Cancel the Course

Once you have enrolled for a Course, if you decide that you wish to cancel your enrolment, you may do so provided that:

  • you notify Innergy that you wish to cancel your enrolment; and
  • you have not accessed the Course Materials or obtained tutorial support.

Quality of the services

We will use reasonable skill and care in the performance of the services. We will provide the services in accordance with the course description which is set out on the Website.

Innergy uses reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Website is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Innergy reserves the right to suspend access to the Website between the scheduled maintenance window of approximately 01:00 and 02:30 GMT each day. There may also be occasions when access to the Website is interrupted for emergency maintenance or repairs or to carry out upgrades to improve the performance or functionality of the Website. Access may also be interrupted due to failures of telecommunications links and equipment which are beyond the control of Innergy.

We do not make any commitment to you that the content of the services will meet any specific requirements that you have (except to the extent that your requirements match the course description which is on the Website when you enrolled) and we expect you to take reasonable care to verify that the course in question will meet your needs. Further, we do not make any commitment to you that you will obtain any particular result from your receipt of the services or that you will obtain any particular qualification from your receipt of the services (unless stated otherwise in the course description on the Website when you enrolled, subject to your successful achievement of that qualification).

Except as described earlier in this statement, we do not make any commitment that the Course Materials will be compatible with or operate with the software or hardware on your computer.

In the event that we recommend that you either enable cookies or download certain publicly accessible software to ensure that your computer is capable of accessing the Course Materials, you do so at your own risk.

Additional charges may be payable to third parties for use of the software necessary to view and download the Course Materials.

All representations, warranties and/or terms and/or commitments not expressly set out in these Terms (whether implied by law, conduct, statute or otherwise) are hereby excluded to the maximum extent permissible at law.

Payment by you of the Course Fee

You agree to pay Innergy the course fee (including VAT where applicable).

We reserve the right from time to time to change the amount of the Course Fee. The current Course Fee for any course at any given time will be displayed on the Website.  In the unlikely event that due to a technical error, the amount of the Course Fee is incorrect, we will notify you as soon as we reasonably can. You will then be entitled to choose between receiving a refund of the monies that you have paid to us (in which case you will not be enrolled on the course) or to pay the balance of the Course Fee to us.

Our Rights to Stop Providing the Services to You

If you are an on-line learner, we will make the Course Materials available to you via the Website from Enrolment until the earlier of:

If you wish to subscribe for the Services after your access to the Course Materials has been terminated, you will need to enrol again. We reserve the right to stop providing the Services to you immediately in the event that:

  • you fail to comply with the paragraph of these terms which deals with the manner in which you are permitted to use the course materials and the Website; or
  • you fail to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner when communicating with or receiving support from us. By this we mean that you act in such a way as to threaten, intimidate or otherwise harass our staff, or that your conduct is violent or threatens the physical safety of either our staff or any other person associated with Innergy.

If we exercise this right we will notify you via email or your chosen route. We will then immediately suspend your access to the Course Materials.

Each provision of this paragraph shall be construed separately as between you and us. If any part is held by a court to be unreasonable, inapplicable or unenforceable, then the other parts shall still apply.

Your Right to Use the Course Materials and your Related Obligations

In consideration of receipt by us of the course fee, we grant to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license [i.e.not to be used by, or transferred to, another person] for you to use the Course Materials for the sole purpose of non-commercial home or work use in connection with the receipt of the Services.
