In these Terms, "we"/"us"/"our" means Bootcamp Pilates Limited, and "you"/"your"/"yours" means you, the customer.

These Terms together with our booking confirmation (which may be oral or written) constitute the contract ("the Contract") between us for the supply of services to you. The Contract shall not be varied in any way whatsoever unless agreed in advance in writing between the parties.

BOOKING AND PAYMENT

Our online booking facility works by showing the availability and price of classes on the date and time you select. Class availability changes dynamically as and when bookings are made or cancelled by clients.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have made your booking and payment correctly.

Should you choose to book and pay by telephone, the price of the class you select will be the same as that displayed online.

METHOD OF PAYMENT

You can pay for your class or classes using credit or debit card. By choosing to make a booking online, you will be asked to select the time and date of the class you wish to book. Once you have selected a class or classes, you will then be automatically directed to a page on which you will be asked to enter your payment details.

Please note that the price paid by you for your class or classes is non-refundable unless you cancel your booking 12 hours or more before the time and date of the class. All prices are final and credits are non-refundable. However you may transfer your credits to friends.  Note: Special offer purchases or temporary deals are non-transferable.

UNUSED BOOKINGS

In the event that you do not attend the class or classes you have booked, and you do not notify us 12 hours or more before such class or classes of your non-attendance, you shall not be entitled to a refund.

MAKING A CHANGE TO YOUR BOOKINGS

To change a booking, please do so online, call or email us. There is no additional charge for this service.

Changes are subject to availability of classes, and we cannot guarantee availability at any time, particularly if a change is made at short notice.

CANCELLING YOUR BOOKINGS

You can also call us on 0330 010 0210 or e-mail us at the studio where you have your booking.  For email, simply add the name of the studio to @bootcamppilates.com.  There is no additional charge for this service.

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

If you cancel over 12 hours before the class starts then you will be automatically refunded.  Once inside 12 hours and, In order to be fair to clients, we do have the following guidelines:

Last minute emergencies sometimes happen and sickness can come on very quickly.  We accept this and we will accept a cancellation within the 12 hour period, on a once per calendar month, per client basis.  This cannot be used retrospectively and will reset on the 1st day of each month.  It is also NOT transferrable.

If you do cancel within the 12 hour period and we are able to fill your space from the wait list then we will consider a refund.  Note that the initial conversation must be had at least 60 minutes before the class commences, in order for you to qualify for the refund.  Once the class has commenced, you cannot claim a refund. 

You are responsible for checking the details of your booking at each stage of the booking and payment process. Alternatively, or if you are unsure as to what to do, please call us on 0330 010 0210 or e-mail us at the studio where you have your booking.  For email, simply add the name of the studio to @bootcamppilates.com and we will be happy to advise you further.

We regret that package purchase refunds are not given after a month from the date of the purchase of the credits, however, in exceptional circumstances, a refund may be considered.  Any refund will be calculated on a true class value basis and there may be a small administrational fee.

Example: If you purchased a 20 class card and only used 12 classes, the refund calculation will be taken back to the next value bulk purchase.  In this case (12 classes), the assessment means that you would be charged the price of a 10 class card and 2 'drop-in' classes.  This total would be subtracted from the original cash amount paid and a £10 administration charge would also be deducted.  The administration charge is to cover relevant banking costs and charges that were paid when the original transaction was carried out and also for processing the refund.

EXPIRY OF PURCHASES

The expiry date of each class package is clearly detailed on the website and the start date is the day of purchase. 

IF WE CANCEL YOUR BOOKING

In the event that we cancel a class or classes that you have booked, we will contact you by e-mail or telephone and offer you the choice of:

(a) having your card re-credited with the price of the cancelled class or classes; or
