Workshop Terms and Conditions of Booking
Full payment must be paid at least 7 days prior to a one day workshop. For bookings made within this time limit, full payment will be required at the time of booking. Any individual who has paid a deposit for the workshop who wishes to transfer to an alternative Digital Swaledale photography workshop will be subject to an administration fee of £10.
If it is necessary for you to cancel your booking then please inform us in writing or email as soon as possible.
It will not be possible to refund cancellations made less than 7 days prior to the date of the workshop unless we are able to re-sell the cancelled booking. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ATTEND THE WORKSHOP ENTIRELY AT YOU OWN RISK. Digital Swaledale aim to provide a safe and enjoyable day on our workshops. However no responsibility will be accepted by Digital Swaledale or any land owner for any loss, damage, injury or death incurred whilst attending a workshop we organise. A reasonable level of fitness is required for most workshops as hills and walking are involved on un-surfaced ground.
Should it be necessary for us to cancel or postpone the workshop, which would only be carried out in circumstances beyond our control, then we will endeavour to move the workshop to an alternative date. If you are unable to attend this alternative date, then a full refund of the monies paid will be made.
Confirmation of your booking will be sent to you by email on receipt of your deposit or full payment along with details of your course.
