Terms of Supply

Important: the terms and conditions included in these Terms of Supply apply to Account Managers (who are purchasing or facilitating accounts for other people, as defined below), not to individuals who are purchasing a single User Membership or to Account Users (who have had an Account User Membership purchased for them). Terms and conditions for people who are not Account Managers are covered in the User Terms.

INTRODUCTION

Transparency is very important to Aptimore Limited (“us”, “we” and “our”), so our full Terms of Supply are set out below, but to make it easier for you here is a short overview of the most important points:

  • Purchasing an Account User Membership entitles a user to access Aptimore’s learning and development platform for 365 days from the date of registration.
  • You may cancel and claim a credit or refund on an Account User Membership within 14 days of purchase, provided the user has not completed their initial profiling questionnaire. If you do wish to cancel, you may do so by completing and returning the cancellation form. The right to a credit or refund ends once the user has completed the initial profiling questionnaire.
  • You may purchase Account User Memberships online or, if purchasing for more than ten people, may contact us on accounts@aptimore.com to discuss an invoicing arrangement. Non-payment of an invoice may result in suspension of access for your Account Users until payment is made.
  • As an Account Manager, you will have access to certain information about your Account Users’ programs, such as when they started and completed each training unit and when they have completed their personalised development report. You will also have access to some aggregated data about areas where your Account Users feel they have gained insight or wish to learn more.
  • You will not have direct access to your Account Users’ personalised profiles, feedback, results, reactions or chosen options for action, or to any exchange of messages that your Account Users may have with Aptimore. Instead, each Account User will create their own comprehensive personalised development report and they will be able to make print or pdf versions to share as they see fit. They will be able to choose how much of their report they wish to share with you, with their line managers or with any coach, mentor or trainer who may be supporting their ongoing development.

  6. REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT TERMS

    Formation of contract for Services

    1. The process of purchasing Account User Membership(s) on the Site allows you to check your order before you complete your purchase: please check the details of the order before you confirm your order or proceed to payment. We will send you a confirmation email each time that you purchase Account User Membership(s) or any additional User Service. The contract between you and Aptimore for the relevant Account User Membership, which is subject to these Terms of Supply, is formed at the time we send such confirmation email.
    2. Each Account User Membership you purchase entitles one Account User to register under your account to use the User Services.
    3. Payment

    4. Account Users may choose either to pay online at the time of purchase or (for more than ten Account User Memberships) to set up a corporate account with us and receive monthly invoices. If you would like to set up a corporate account, please email us at accounts@aptimore.com.
    5. By placing an order, you agree to pay the stipulated fees for the relevant Account User Membership(s) and/or Service(s) along with the VAT (if applicable) and any other fees or amounts associated with the Service(s). Unless you are paying by invoice, fees for Account User Memberships and other Services are payable upfront in a single instalment. Any price changes will not affect existing current year’s subscriptions (so if you have paid for Account User Membership for a certain price, price changes will not affect your existing subscription, and will only apply to any future subscription purchases).
    6. Aptimore uses secure payment service providers to protect your payment details.
    7. Invoices

    8. If you have a corporate account with us and have chosen to pay by invoice, we will issue one invoice to you on a monthly basis for the Account User Membership(s) and/or Services purchased in the previous month. You must pay each invoice in cleared monies within 28 calendar days at the date of invoice by credit card or any other form of payment accepted by Aptimore.
    9. If you do not make any payment due to us by the due date for payment, we may suspend any unpaid Account User Memberships and Services until your payment has cleared. We may also charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the Bank of England base rate. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
    10. However, if you dispute an invoice or invoiced item in good faith and contact us to let us know promptly after you have received an invoice that you dispute it or any of the charges on it, clause 6.5 will not apply to the relevant charges for the period of the dispute.
    11. Expiry

    12. Each Account User’s Account User Membership will expire 365 calendar days (inclusive) after the relevant Account User has been registered with us and upon expiry the relevant Account User will no longer be able to access the User Services or the Materials. Access to the Services and the Materials may be extended by payment of a further fee. You can check on the status of the Account User Memberships registered to your account at any time by viewing your account information.
    13. Promotions and Free Offers

    14. Aptimore may run promotions and free offers which may be subject to additional terms or restrictions. These promotions and offers may not be shared among different Account Managers or Account Users.
    15. Refunds

    16. Please be advised before you pay that, unless and to the extent expressly set out to the contrary in these Terms of Supply (and in particular as set out in clause 7.1 below), any amounts paid in advance will not be refunded.
  7. TERMINATION

    Termination by you

    1. You may cancel any purchase of Account User Membership(s) or Services and claim a refund from Aptimore for any reason within 14 working days of your purchase (except as set out in 7.1.1 and 7.1.2 below). You may do this by returning or completing the cancellation form and returning it to us by email or post, or by sending an email to us clearly setting out your request with details that will allow us easily to identify your payment transaction. However, you will lose your right to a refund as soon as an Account User:
      1. in the case of Account User Membership, registers under your account and completes their personal questionnaire; and/or
      2. in the case of any other Service, when the Account User first uses or accesses that Service.
    2. Termination by Aptimore

    3. Aptimore may suspend or terminate your account and your access to any one or more Account Manager Services immediately, without notice and without liability if Aptimore has reason to believe that you are in breach of or have acted inconsistently with these Terms of Supply.
    4. Likewise, Aptimore may suspend or terminate any Account User Membership(s) registered under your account immediately, without notice and without liability if Aptimore has reason to believe that the relevant Account User is in breach of or has acted inconsistently with the User Terms.
    5. If Aptimore terminates an Account User Membership or access to any other Services in accordance with 7.3 above, Aptimore will credit your account with an Account User Membership representing (in Aptimore’s sole judgement) any Account User Membership(s) so terminated only to the extent that:
      1. such membership(s) are unallocated and have never been used; or
      2. if such membership(s) have been allocated to Account User(s) who have registered for the Services, that such Account Users have not completed their initial profiling questionnaires.

      Such a credit is your sole remedy in respect of such a termination. Alternatively, you may be refunded in cash at Aptimore’s discretion.

    6. Changes in Account Users

    7. You must notify Aptimore if you wish to dissociate an Account User or an Account User Membership from your account (such user being an “Outgoing Account User”), and/or if you wish to terminate any Services purchased for an Outgoing Account User. You may do this by emailing us at support@aptimore.com.
    8. We will credit your account with a replacement Account User Membership only if the Outgoing Account User had not completed their initial profiling questionnaire. Likewise, you will receive a credit on your account for any Services purchased but not accessed by an Outgoing Account User.
    9. Please note that we are unable to offer refunds or credits if an Outgoing Account User has completed their initial profiling questionnaire or otherwise accessed the Services. We regret that this also applies in the case of Outgoing Account Users who are leaving your organisation for any reason.
  8. REGISTRATION INFORMATION AND UNAUTHORISED USE

    Registration Information

    1. You must ensure that:
      1. all of the information you submit to us at the time of your registration (which includes any payment information) is true, accurate, current and complete; and
      2. you keep all such information (such as your email address) up to date.
      3. If any of the Services or Account Manager Services are suspended or cancelled, we may delete or stop your access to any related information contained in the Account Manager Services.

    4. Amounts paid to Aptimore before you report an unauthorised or fraudulent use of your account will not be refunded. Aptimore has the right to close or cancel the account of any Account Manager or Account User in the event of any unauthorised or fraudulent use of their account or any Service.
