You are responsible for all activities that occur under your user identification code, password or other information.
4.2 We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by You or allocated by Us, at any time, if in Our reasonable opinion You have failed to comply with any of the provisions of the Agreement.
4.3 If You know or suspect that anyone other than You knows your user identification code or password, you must promptly notify Us.

You agree to maintain and promptly update this information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.

5.    Bookings & orders:
5.1 You may use the Website to make bookings and orders for Courses or Goods provided by Makers and Service Providers. These may be made on an ‘instant’ or ‘on request’ basis and this is specified during purchase.  Instant bookings/orders are confirmed immediately (and both Makers/Service Providers and Customers are issued a confirmation email) and requested bookings/orders become confirmed at the point at which the Maker/Service Provider accepts the booking (at which point both parties receive a confirmation email). If a booking is not confirmed or accepted for any reason, then no funds will be taken. On the instant option, the full fee will be taken when You checkout (via debit/credit card, PayPal or gift voucher or a combination) and the booking/order is confirmed via an email issued to the address You have specified during the checkout process. The ‘on-request’ model means that your payment will be ‘authorised’ by Your payment provider, but not captured until the Maker or Service Provider has accepted the order. This will take place within 72 hours, and you will receive an email confirmation of the Maker’s or Service Provider’s response. Until that point the funds may show as ‘pending’ on Your statement; and if the booking is not accepted no funds will be taken. The on-request option suits many of Our artisan Makers and Service Providers as it offers more flexibility and reflects the independent and bespoke nature of Our industry and Courses and Goods offered on the Website.
5.2   Throughout the booking process You may chat directly with the Maker or Service Provider to ask any questions you may have; the chat can be easily accessed via the listing page or any of the booking emails. Only once a booking or order is confirmed will the Maker or Service Provider receive more detailed contact information, to deliver your Course or Good efficiently. 

6.    Refunds & cancellations
6.1 If You wish to cancel a Course
6.1.1 Schedulable Course bookings (in-person and live online course bookings) may only be cancelled if they fall within the cancellation period of that Course, as stipulated by [a Service Provider] during the purchase and on each booking email – and in these cases a full refund will be issued without delay. Service Providers specify their chosen cancellation policy when publishing their listings and these policies exist to protect our Service Providers from late cancellations and no- shows. For example, a Course that requires a lot of preparation and prior investment usually requires a stricter cancellation policy than a short course that requires little preparation and can be cancelled at short notice. 
6.1.2 If a refund is eligible, it will be processed on the same method used to make the original payment. 
6.1.3 If payment was made in full or in part with a CraftCourses gift voucher, the gift voucher will be reactivated to use to book another course. If the expiry date is within 3 months, the gift voucher will automatically be extended for up to 3 months to ensure sufficient time for the gift voucher recipient to choose something else. Refunds can only be made to the person who made the booking and credited to the payment method used at payment. 
6.1.4 Please note that cancellations or postponements outside of the cancellation window will be at the sole discretion of the Service Provider. 
6.2 If a Service Provider cancels a Course
6.2.1 If the Service Provider needs to cancel a Course that You have booked attendance on at short notice for reasons beyond their control, such as adverse weather conditions, illness or mechanical breakdowns, you have these options: a. rearrange at a mutually convenient date; b.  move onto a different course and c. receive a refund. 
6.2.2 We regret that in the event of cancellation for any reason, We are unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or any other expenses you may incur in relation to the cancelled Course.

In order to avoid any confusion on the day it is always worth checking any dietary or other specific requirements or restrictions directly with the Service Provider in advance of the Course.
