    1. How a contract is in place. If you have requested to either pay for a membership or book a class pass you will be prompted to make payment online or in  person for the service. Once you have paid, we will email you to confirm. A legally binding contract is in place between you and us once these terms have been accepted, which will be deemed to have occurred as soon as you have made payment for a membership or for any class passes which do not require a membership. In addition, when using particular services provided by us you will be subject to any posted guidelines, FAQs, or rules applicable to such services, which may be posted or modified from time to time.
    2. If we cannot accept your order. We reserve the right to reject your order for whatever reason, and if we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and we will not charge you for the relevant service.
    3. We only sell to the UK. Our website and these terms are solely for the promotion of our services in the UK.
    1. From time-to-time we may offer a trial membership that includes a free private class with an instructor and/or other similar promotions (each a Trial). Unless otherwise communicated, a trial begins at the moment of sign up and ends once you have completed the free class or similar promotional activity. Trials may be redeemed as described in the specifics of the promotion and may be subject to additional or different terms.
    2. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, Trials are not transferable, may not be combined with other offers or redeemed for cash and are void where prohibited. You understand and agree that unless we expressly state otherwise, Trials are available only to new users that have never had a account with us before and it is a violation of these terms to sign up for a Trial if you have signed up for an account or trial in the past or to have more than one account or trial at the same time. Alliance reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial.
    1. Number of classes. If you have purchased a pass without purchasing a membership you will be entitled to attend the number of classes commensurate with the pass you have purchased.
    1. Number of classes. If you have purchased a membership you will be entitled to attend any number of classes during the time your membership remains active.
    2. Services may vary slightly from their pictures. Any images of the services we provide to you are for illustrative purposes only.
    3. Class changes: class timetables and instructors may be subject to changes from time to time, we will endeavour, where reasonably possible to do so, to notify you in advance.
    4. Freezes. you may temporarily freeze your membership for up to three (3) calendar months per calendar year if we deem in our discretion that it is reasonable for you to do so based on the reasons provided (eg pregnancy, serious illness or injury). We may require you to produce proof which is satisfactory to us of any of these reasons that you are relying on to freeze your membership.  Freezing your membership is not the same as cancelling your membership – freezing is a temporary suspension; cancellation is terminating your membership. To cancel your membership, you must follow the procedure described in section 14 below.  If you want to freeze your membership, you can request us to do so in writing or by completing a form which we will provide to you.
    1. If you wish to make a change to your membership or class pass you have ordered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the service or anything else which would be necessary because of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
    1. We may change the services we provide or your membership at any time:
      1. to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
      2. to implement minor adjustments and improvements, for example to address a safety feature. These changes will not affect your use of our services.
    1. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our delivery of the services is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.
    2. What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the services to you. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (see clause 15.1) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result.

    2. Your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply services that are in conformity with this contract. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
    1. Recurring billing. By completing your monthly membership purchase, you authorise us to charge you a monthly fee at the then current rate. Increases in the current rate will be notified with one month’s notice.
    2. When you must pay (monthly membership). When you complete a monthly membership purchase, your first purchase will be billed immediately. Your membership will auto-renew on the same date each month (being the date on which your membership was activated), provided that, where such date does not exist in a particular renewal month, your membership will be deemed to auto-renew on the day immediately following the date of expiry of your monthly membership.  If you want to end your monthly membership, you must give us notice in writing. Any such notice will take effect at the start of the next monthly renewal date, being the day of the month on which the monthly membership was activated.
    3. When you must pay (yearly membership). When you complete a yearly membership purchase, your first purchase will be billed immediately. Your membership will auto-renew on the same date each year (being the date on which your membership was activated) unless: (a) you give us at least three months’ notice in writing prior to the end of the term that you wish to end the membership, or (b) you give us at least one month’s notice in writing prior to the end of the term that you wish to switch to a monthly membership (in which case that monthly membership will switch at the end of the term).
    4. When you must pay (private lesson or class pass): payment for any private lesson or individual class or classes will be taken at the time of booking.
    5. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the service, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the service (including delivery costs) in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
    6. Payment method. We take payments via debit and credit card through the GoCardless platform. We may, entirely at our discretion, accept other payment methods to start, restart, transfer or upgrade your membership. You may edit your payment method information by contacting Alliance in writing or in person and updating accordingly. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your payment method information, provided that you have not cancelled your account in accordance with these terms, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
    7. 18 and over: you must be 18 years of age or older to purchase any pass or membership (including on behalf of a person who is below the age of 18).  This means in particular that any child under the age of 18 wishing to use our services can only do so where they have been signed up by a parent or guardian who agrees to bear sole responsibility for that child in their use of our services.
    8. No refunds: unless expressly stated to the contrary in these terms, or as provided under applicable law, payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds available for partially used periods.
    9. Cancelling private lessons. If you cancel any private lessons booked before the lesson starts or fail to show up for the lesson then we will give you the option to reschedule the lesson within the 30 day period from when the lesson was due to take place. If you do not reschedule within that time period or cancel the rescheduled lesson/do not show up for it then we are entitled to keep the fees you have paid for it.
