TERMS & CONDITIONS

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ACCESS TO THE MILLION DOLLAR FITNESS ACADEMY LIMITED WEBSITE AND ENROLMENT


1 Introduction
1.1 Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using the website operated by Million Dollar Fitness Academy Limited (company number NI 619611) (‘MDFA’). In particular, we draw your attention to paragraphs 3 (Fees), 4 (Withdrawal and conditions relating to refunds), 11 (Applicability of Course Materials and other online materials) and 15 (Liability). By enrolling on our courses you are agreeing to enter into a serious financial commitment. MDFA strongly recommends that prior to enrolment you satisfy yourself you fully understand and are able to comply with that commitment. If there is anything you are unclear about or if you have any questions, please contact us immediately by e-mail or through the website.

1.2 Without prejudice to the above, by using or accessing our website, you agree to be legally bound by these Terms and Conditions of use, as they apply to your use of or access to our website and enrolment on our courses.

1.3 If you do not wish to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, then you may not use our website or enrol on our courses.

2 Nature of our Website
2.1 Our website is a place for you to enrol on our courses (including optional modules). Details of the courses and fees you will be required to pay are shown on our website. Terms and conditions that are specific to ordering goods can be found under “Terms of Use” in our web shop and on the homepage under “About MDFA”

2.2 Please note that the contents of our website are aimed at users aged 18 years and above, and you must be over 18 years to purchase the courses. MDFA may be prepared to enrol students between the ages of 16-18 but in these circumstances a third party such as a parent or guardian will need to guarantee the contract on your behalf.

3 Enrolling on Courses on our Website and Fees
3.1 To enrol on a course and select optional modules, you will need to follow the procedures set out on our website.

3.2 Details of fees and the procedures for payment are displayed on our website see FAQ section. By enrolling on a course and where relevant, selecting optional modules, you are agreeing to be responsible for the payment of the applicable fees in full.

3.3 MDFA is entitled to refuse any enrolment application made by you or on your behalf. If your application is accepted, MDFA’s acceptance of your application to enrol on a course will be notified to you electronically. This will normally happen when arrangements for full payment for the course have been made by you and been confirmed as satisfactory by MDFA or any third party acting on our behalf, and at that time the contract between us will come into force. The Enrolment Notification, which will be sent to the e-mail address you gave us when enrolling, will normally be sent to you when we (or any third party acting on our behalf) receive cleared funds for payment in full for the course

3.4 If a third party such as your employer is paying for your fees, you are required to give the name and address of the payer on your application to enrol. MDFA will contact separately such third party who will be required to confirm to us in writing that they are prepared to pay your fees. On receipt of the appropriate confirmation of guarantee and payment in full, an Enrolment Notification will be sent to you and to the third party who is responsible for your fees.

In certain limited circumstances where the third party is proposing to make payment by alternative method[s], we may (at our sole discretion) send out the Enrolment Notification and allow you to commence a course before the financial arrangements have been finalised but not before we have received a deposit. Under these circumstances you agree to procure that the third party will take all necessary steps to apply for, secure and finalise the financial arrangements as soon as possible. In the event that the third party fails to secure financing, you warrant and represent that you will be personally and fully responsible for all the fees relating to the course and optional modules that you have enrolled on. It is recommended that you do not commence a course or optional module until full financing is in place.

3.5 If you have enrolled and paid for your chosen course but your acceptance to MDFA is then not approved, your payment will be refunded to you within 30 days of Notification

3.6 You undertake that all details you provide to us (or any third party acting as our agent) for the purpose of enrolling you will be correct; that the credit or debit card, or any electronic cash, which you use is your own and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost.

3.7 MDFA reserves the right to require you to provide any additional information that it may deem necessary in order to approve your enrolment.

4 Withdrawal and Access to Course Materials
4.1 As part of undertaking an MDFA course, you will be granted access to various materials (“Course Materials”)

4.2 On condition that the service has not commenced you may withdraw from a course (or de-select any optional modules that you may have selected) for any reason (including if you simply change your mind) within 7 working days of us (or an agent acting on our behalf) sending the Enrolment Notification. Your ability to withdraw from a course (or de-select any optional modules that you may have selected) expires after this period whether or not the services have commenced. To withdraw, you must notify us in writing or other durable and recordable medium (including e-mail) within those 7 working days. In circumstances where we have not received your notification, you will be required to provide evidence. You are therefore required to retain evidence of dispatch such as recorded delivery if sending your notification by post or a read receipt if sent by e-mail. You will then be entitled to a refund from MDFA in respect of the course or the optional modules you have withdrawn from (as the case may be) less any registration fees already incurred.This will be paid as soon as possible, but in any event within 30 days.

The right to withdraw within 7 working days of the Enrolment Notification being sent as referred to above does not apply to online learning once you access any part of the Course Materials relevant to the course or optional modules that you have selected or area of the website that is only available to enrolled students. You agree that your cancellation rights will end on the expiry of 7 working days or as soon as you commence the service (whichever is the first to occur), even if this is within the cancellation period of 7 working days from the date the contract is concluded.

You may de-select any optional modules within the 7 working days provided you have not accessed any Course Materials or areas of the website relating to that particular module. Your refund will be limited to those optional modules that you have de-selected less any registration fees already incurred

4.3 Following the expiration of 7 working days from the date on which MDFA (or our agent) has sent the Enrolment Notification, no refunds will be given

5 Computer Specification, Software Support and Alterations to the Website, Courses and the Awarding Body
5.1 You are responsible for providing and maintaining suitable computer and communications equipment and software necessary to gain access to www.milliondollarfitnessacademy.com and www.activeiqacademy.com/ to be able to download Course Materials that will enable you to complete the course for which you have enrolled.

5.2 If you are using the computer of a third party (e.g. your employer), it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the necessary consent to do so. If your circumstances change (e.g. if you change employer or if your employer changes its computer, equipment or software) and you no longer have access to a suitable computer for any reason, MDFA is not responsible for this and no refund of fees will be given in these circumstances.

5.3 MDFA does not provide software support and this is for you to arrange with your software provider.

5.4 We reserve the right to alter, suspend or discontinue any aspect of our website or the content or services available through it. This includes but is not limited to changes that we are required to make in the content and structure of our courses in order to ensure continuing compliance with the requirements of national standards and the awarding bodies.

In particular but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, we reserve the right to change the awarding body of the courses offered through our website provided that any substituted awarding body will provide a qualification of equal level on the national framework as set by the sector skills council “Skills Active” or its successor.

6 Information You Provide
6.1 The following applies to any information you provide to us, for example during any registration or ordering process:

  • You authorise us to use, store or otherwise process any personal information which relates to and identifies you, including but not limited to your name and address, to the extent reasonably necessary to provide the services which are available through our website. You understand and agree that MDFA may disclose to third parties, on an anonymous basis, certain aggregate information contained in your registration application. MDFA will not disclose to any third party your name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number without prior consent, except to the extent necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable laws or in legal proceedings where such information is relevant. MDFA reserves the right to offer third party services and products to you based on the preferences that you identify in your registration and at any time thereafter; such offers may be made by MDF or third parties. If you send us personal correspondence such as e-mails or letters, then we may collect this information into a file specific to you (together, the various purposes set out in this paragraph shall be known as ‘the Purposes’). All such information collected by us shall be referred to in these Terms and Conditions as ‘Personal Information’;
  • You must ensure that the Personal Information you provide is accurate and complete and that all ordering or registration details (where applicable) contain your correct name, address and other requested details. It is your responsibility to ensure that MDFA is updated on any changes to such information. Most correspondence will be sent to your e-mail address but certain certificates and other non-electronic correspondence will be sent to your postal address.

6.2 Processing and Disclosure Rights

By accepting these Terms and Conditions you agree to the processing and disclosure of the Personal Information for the Purposes. You also agree that the Purposes may be amended to include other uses or disclosures of Personal Information following notification to you by means of a notice on our website, which you should check regularly. If you would like to review or modify any part of your Personal Information, then you should email us.

7 Practical Assessment Enrolment and Live Classroom Teaching
7.1 Enrolment into a practical assessment module is possible at any time. Enrolment on a specific practical assessment date is only possible once you have fully completed the prerequisite theory module. Enrolments are taken on a first come, first served basis and once a practical assessment has reached maximum capacity, no more enrolments for the assessment will be taken. Enrolment into practical assessments is not automatic and each student will be prompted to enrol once they have successfully completed the related theory module. MDFA accepts no responsibility for any student who fails to enrol in a practical assessment date in which they wish to attend. All enrolments are your own responsibility and must be made at least 14 days in advance following the date on which you successfully complete the prerequisite theory module.

7.2 Depending on the course you have enrolled in, you will be required to bring one or more friends to your practical assessment to participate in a class and act as “mock clients”. MDFA accepts no responsibility for such people and they will be attending entirely at their own risk.

7.3 If you wish to change the date of your practical assessment, you must contact admin@milliondollarfitnessacademy.com at least 14 days prior to the assessment date. After this time no refund or transfer to another practical assessment will be granted.

7.4 If you fail to attend a practical assessment in which you have enrolled, a deferral for that module will be recorded. No refund or transfer to another practical assessment will be granted without additional charge.

7.5 MDFA reserves the right to change and/or cancel the dates and venues for practical assessments and training days. You will be notified of any change by telephone, post or e-mail (which will be notified to the contact point you provided on enrolment) and you will be able to transfer to another course at no extra cost to you. MDFA is not liable in any other way for any additional expenses, costs or other charges that you may incur as a result of such change or cancellation, and you are responsible for ensuring that MDFA has up to date contact details for you.

7.6 Certain modules include distance and classroom-based teaching which is delivered on the same day during a set number of consecutive weeks. Once you have enrolled on a series of training days, if you need to change your dates there will be an administration fee of £150 (including VAT) to transfer to an alternative series of dates. MDFA makes no guarantee that space will be available on your chosen alternative dates and reserves the right to select alternative dates on your behalf, if necessary. You are therefore advised to ensure that you are available on all dates before you enrol on a series of training days.

7.7 MDFA reserves the right to change and/or cancel the dates and venues for distance and classroom-based teaching. You will be notified of any change by telephone, post or e-mail and you will be able to transfer to another course at no extra cost to you. MDFA is not liable in any other way of any additional expenses, costs or other charges that you may incur as a result of such change or cancellation.

7.8 You are required to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner at all assessment and training days. If you behave in a manner which in the opinion of MDFA is threatening, abusive, offensive or otherwise unacceptable, MDFA will have the right to remove you from that and all future assessment and training days. You will remain liable for the fees for courses and modules on which you have enrolled.

7.9 In addition to your general responsibility to ensure that you are fit to undertake a course, you are specifically responsible to ensure that you are physically fit on any occasion when you attend either a training day or an assessment day when you will be required to complete a physical activity readiness questionnaire. If the results of this questionnaire indicate you require your GP’s consent to perform physical activity, you will not be permitted to perform the physical components of that day. This may prevent you from continuing on to the next section of your course. In these circumstances you will need to obtain the appropriate medical clearance and guidance from your GP and re-book another training or assessment day, as appropriate. Fees for such training or assessment days will not be refunded and MDFA will not be responsible for your travelling costs or other expenditure that may be wasted.

7.10 You acknowledge that you are fully aware of the risks involved in participating in training and assessment days which can be physically and mentally demanding. You represent and warrant that you discharge MDFA, its agents, employees and representatives on a continuing basis from any and all liability for injuries or damages resulting from your participation in any of the FIE training and assessment days, and or in connection with performing, conducting, teaching or instructing course material to the fullest extent permitted by law. This exclusion shall not cover death or personal injury caused by the negligence of MDFA or its employees, agents or sub-contractors.

7.11 You agree that you may be videotaped, audio recorded and photographed by MDFA as part of your training and assessment days and you consent to MDFA using your photograph, video and tape recordings and any other likeness of you for any and all promotional and training purposes.

8 Assessments, Progress Reports and Certification
8.1 Course certificates are issued on successful completion of each module. Once all modules in the MDFA course have been completed, the relevant awarding body will be notified and they will issue the qualification certificate which will be sent to the postal address you have provided. Third party awarding bodies may take up to six months to issue certificates due to internal and external verification requirements.

8.2 All certificates will be issued in the name held on our records at the date you successfully complete the course or module. It is your responsibility to inform MDFA in writing of any change of name and to provide appropriate evidence, such as a marriage certificate or deed poll.

8.6 If you lose a certificate and require a replacement, a fee of £30 (sterling) will be payable. If you change your name or address prior to the date you successfully complete the course or module but fail to notify us and require MDFA to issue a new certificate, a replacement fee of £30 (sterling) will be payable. Please note we are unable to issue replacement certificates in a new name if the change of name occurred after the date you successfully completed the course or module.

8.7 Courses are organised in modules and must be completed in order. In the majority of cases you will not be permitted to progress to the next module unless you have successfully completed the prerequisite module/s preceding it. You may undertake modules as and when you are able to do so, depending on your circumstances, provided that you have commenced the final module in a course on or before the second anniversary of the date you commenced the first module of that course. There is no guarantee that any course will be run for more than two years and it is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the course within this time frame. You will be deemed to have commenced the first module of a course on the date that the Enrolment Notification is sent to you. You will be deemed to have commenced the final module of a course on the date that we receive your application for final certification with all the pre-requisites having been met by you. Failure to commence the final module of a course in accordance with the time scale explained in this paragraph will result in you being unable to undertake any remaining modules in that course. No refunds will be given for courses that are not completed.

9 Tutor Support
9.1 Tutor support is offered via email. Students requiring tutor support via the telephone must call their tutor support number at a pre-arranged time. Some telephone calls may be recorded for training purposes.

9.2 MDFA reserves the right to change the level of support including but not limited to costs, hours and method of service.

9.3 Whilst receiving telephone support, you are required to conduct yourself appropriately. If you behave in a manner which in the opinion of MDFA is threatening, abusive, offensive or otherwise unacceptable, MDFA will have the right to ban you from all future tutor support.

10 Security and Data Protection
10.1 Access to and use of the online learning is through a user name and password. You are solely responsible in all respects for all use of and for protecting the confidentiality of the username and password that you select for use on the e-learning platform.
