Online courses & digital products: Terms and Conditions
Summary of your key rights if you are a consumer:
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that you have a 14 day right to change your mind and get a full refund on your digital content. However, you do not have this right to cancel once delivery of the content has started (i.e. once streaming has started), provided you have been told this and have acknowledged this (for which see clause 8 below).
The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says digital content must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If the digital content is faulty you’re entitled to a repair or a replacement or, if this is not reasonably practical, you can get some or all of your money back. If you can show that faulty digital content has damaged your device and we haven't used reasonable care and skill to prevent this, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation.
This is a summary of some of your key rights. For detailed information from Citizens Advice please visit www.citizensadvice.org.uk or call 03454 04 05 06. The information in this summary is not intended to replace the terms below which you should read carefully.
