See also clause 7.3.
11. PRICE AND PAYMENT
11.1 Where to find the price for the services. The price of the services (which includes VAT) will be the price as told to you over the telephone and as displayed on our Website. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the services advised to you is correct. However please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the services you book.
11.2 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 services we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
11.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your booking so that, where the services’ correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the services’ correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your booking. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
11.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment by debit card, major credit cards, BACS and PayPal. Further information about our payment methods can be found on our Website.
11.5 Deposits We may ask our customers to pay a deposit at the time of booking. We will let you know at the time of booking or it will be displayed on our Website the amount of deposit required.
11.6 Final Balances If you are booking a course the final balance of the services is due 14 days before the date of the services. If you are a model an advance payment of 25% is required at the time of booking with the balance payable once your treatment has been provided.
11.7 Services booked within 14 days of services date For services booked where the services date is less than 14 days from the date of booking, the price of the services must be paid in full.
11.8 We will cancel your booking if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we cannot guarantee your place on the services and we may at our discretion cancel your booking.
12. PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS
12.1 If you are purchasing reduced price Services as you are volunteering as a model Deposits are to be paid on booking to secure the allocated appointment slot. Without a deposit payment, the appointment is not secured and therefore we may not be able to accommodate you at the time requested.
12.2 Model appointments are carried out by our students under supervision from our tutors. Models should be aware that they are receiving a discounted service and therefore we will not be held responsible for unsatisfactory results.
12.3 Cancellations or rearrangements made within 48 hours of the appointment time will result in loss of deposit. You will also lose your deposit if you fail to show up to your appointment.
12.4 Anti Wrinkle Injections The reduced price for Anti Wrinkle injections does NOT include a top up appointment. If unsatisfactory results have occurred, models should contact us to arrange for a nurse practitioner to assess the results and decide if further Services by way of a top up are required. If it is, this will be of no additional charge. Our decision in this regard is final and in our absolute and sole discretion.

- have your data corrected, updated or amended. Please note that we may ask you to verify any changes to your data such as a proof of change of address or name;
- Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it
- Object to and/or restrict processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. Please note that in some instances we may have to stop providing our services to you but we will notify you if this is the case.
- Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party, for example if you chose to use another business to provide services to you.
- Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at email@example.com Our contact details are at the top of this page. You will not normally have to pay a fee for this, but we will let you know if we feel that it is fair to charge a fee, for example if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive . Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances and will let you know if we feel that this is the case.
In order to be able to offer you Klarna’s payment options, we will pass to Klarna certain aspects of your personal information, such as contact and order details, in order for Klarna to assess whether you qualify for their payment options and to tailor the payment options for you.
