annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety;
- not harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other Member or Mastered employee;
- not impersonate any person, misrepresent his/her identity or affiliation

Mastered shall without limiting its other rights or remedies have the
right to suspend the supply of the Accelerator until the Customer remedies

Mastered shall not be liable for any costs or losses sustained or
incurred by the Customer arising directly or indirectly from Mastered's
failure or delay to perform any of its obligations as set out in this
clause 7; and
the Customer shall reimburse Mastered on written demand for any costs or
losses sustained or incurred by Mastered arising directly or indirectly
from the Customer Default.
Charges and payment
Mastered shall invoice the Customer immediately upon the Customer
placing an Order. Where a Customer places an Order for an Accelerator, payment of the
invoice must be received by Mastered either:
- (where the Customer elects to take advantage of a Mastered Payment Plan
as further detailed in clause 9 below) in accordance with the terms of the
- (where the Customer elects to take advantage of third party finance
options) immediately on placing an Order for an Accelerator; or
- immediately on placing an Order for an Accelerator.
Time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.
All amounts payable by the Customer under the Contract are inclusive of
amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable for the time being
If the Customer fails to make any payment due to Mastered under the
Contract by the due date for payment, Mastered has the right (but not the
obligation) to charge the Customer, and the Customer shall pay:
- interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per cent per annum
above HSBC's base rate from time to time; and
- an administration fee of '25.
Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until
actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The
Customer shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full
without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any
deduction or withholding required by law). Mastered may at any time,
without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to
it by the Customer against any amount payable by Mastered to the
Mastered Payment Plan
Mastered may provide the Payment Plan in respect of certain Accelerators which allows Customers to finance the cost of Accelerator(s) by paying an initial up-front deposit and the balance in monthly installments over a period agreed between the Customer and Mastered. Mastered will provide the Customer with a breakdown of the cost of the finance and the amounts payable by the Customer when the Customer enters into the Contract.
A Customer may cancel a Payment Plan within 10 days after entering into
the Payment Plan. Cancellation of a Payment Plan after this 10-day period
does not terminate the Customer's obligations to pay the fees due under a
Contract which would become immediately payable on termination of the
If an instalment due in accordance with the Payment Plan has not been
paid, Mastered shall be permitted to try to take the payment a further time
and charge an administration fee in respect of its costs in respect of the
In the event that the instalment is not paid within 14 days of the due
date, Mastered may terminate the Payment Plan at which point all sums due
under the Payment Plan (including any interest) will become immediately
repayable to Mastered.
In the event that an instalment is outstanding, Mastered may in its sole
and absolute discretion elect to suspend the availability of the
Accelerator and the other services provided by Mastered to the Customer
and/or in its sole and absolute discretion terminate the Accelerator as
regards the Customer. In the event that Mastered elects to terminate the
Accelerator, any sums already paid in respect of such Accelerator shall not
For avoidance of doubt, termination of a Payment Plan shall not entitle
the Customer to terminate a Contract. In the event of termination of a
Payment Plan, (and absent termination of the Accelerator by Mastered in its
sole and absolute discretion) the balance of fees due under the Contract
shall be payable.
Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional
Charges) Regulations 2013 (as amended) Customers who place an Order in the
capacity of a consumer do not have the right to cancel any Accelerator
purchased because the Accelerator provided by Mastered constitutes the
supply of services related to leisure activities which have a specific date
and/or period of performance.
For this reason,
Mastered does not offer an automatic refund of the fees for an Accelerator in the event that a Customer wishes to cancel after a 10-day period has expired. This reflects a variety of factors which are dependant on the type of Accelerator purchased. These factors include (but are not limited to):
- Where access to the Mastered community and/or platform is part of the Accelerator, as soon as reasonably practicable after Customers have signed up for an Accelerator, Mastered will provide them with access to the Mastered community and platform and commence provision of certain of its valuable services;
- Where an Accelerator has limited places or requires certain goods or services to be tailored or booked for each attendee, Mastered commences booking and/or tailoring the goods and services as soon as reasonably practicable after Customers have signed up for an Accelerator.
Customers may cancel their participation in an Accelerator in accordance
with the following:
|Date prior to the start of Accelerator on which the
notice of cancellation is received by Mastered
||Amount of refund due in relation to the full price at the
time of purchase
|Within 10 days of purchase
|Outside of 10 days and within 4 months of start date
|Less than 4 months before the start of the Accelerator
|Less than 3 months before the start of the Accelerator
|Less than 2 months before the start of the Accelerator
|Less than 1 month, or after start of the
In the event of a refund being issued, funds will be returned to the
source payment method used in the initial transaction. If the original
payment originated from multiple sources, each source will have the
appropriate proportion returned. If the amount of fees paid as at the date
of cancellation is less than the percentage of the total fees which
Mastered is entitled to retain, the Customer will be required to pay the
balance to Mastered.
Where the Customer cancels their participation in the Accelerator less
than 1 month prior to start of the Accelerator or after it has
started, the Customer shall remain liable to make all payments due under
any Payment Plan in full for the duration of the Payment Plan.
A Customer may cancel their participation in an Accelerator and receive
a credit note in respect of some or all of the fees to be used on other
Accelerators in the future if the consent of Mastered is obtained (such
consent to be given in Mastered's sole and absolute discretion) in the
- where during the first three months of the Accerlator, the Customer is
unable to participate in the Accelerator due to a serious illness suffered
by the Customer as evidenced by a medical note issued by a registered GP
which states that the Customer's illness prevents him/her from learning
online for 4 to 6 hours per week;
- If a Customer wishes to cancel an Accelerator in accordance with this
clause, the customer must notify Mastered in writing. Mastered's decision
under this clause shall be final.
Mastered reserves the right not to process an order for an Accelerator if:
- the Accelerator is fully booked;
- you are not eligible to take part in the Accelerator;
- the Accelerator has been or is going to be cancelled;
- the Accelerator was listed at the incorrect price; or
- in Mastered's sole and absolute discretion, decides that the Customer is
not suitable for the Accelerator.
If Mastered does not process your order for any of the above reasons,
Mastered will notify you by e-mail and will refund to your account any sum
deducted by us from your credit/debit card.
Mastered reserves the right to cancel any live event , and Mastered
shall not be responsible for any loss resulting from the cancellation. For
the avoidance of doubt, this includes but is not limited to, loss of
earnings and loss of monies for any transport or accommodation costs.
The cancellation criteria in clause 10.3, 10.4 and 10.6 do not apply to any deferred enrolment

failure to perform its obligations under this Contract as a result of a

specified to the other party in writing in accordance with this clause, and

invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be deemed modified to the
minimum extent necessary to make it valid, legal and enforceable. If such
modification is not possible, the relevant provision or part-provision
shall be deemed deleted. Any modification to or deletion of a provision or
part-provision under this clause shall not affect the validity and

is in writing and shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent
breach or default. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right
or remedy provided under the Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver
of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict its
further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial
exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further
exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
