Our Terms & Conditions For Bookings
Making a booking on the Amsterdam Flower School website involves creating a legally binding contract, the “Agreement”, between you, all of your Guests, and us. The parties to this Agreement are: (1) the person who makes the booking and enters into the Agreement and all Guests made under the same booking, referred to throughout the Agreement as “you” or “your”, and (2) our company, Human Experience, registered at KvK under number 66392071. Human Experience is referred to in this Agreement as the “Company”, “we”, and “us”. By making the booking on behalf of one or more Guests you confirm that you are authorised to agree to these terms and conditions on behalf of each Guest.
We provide our events and services to you subject to this Agreement, so as always with a binding contract, you should read through it carefully before making a booking. We may make changes to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, but the latest version will always appear on this page. If you continue to use our website or services after changes have been made, you will be considered to have accepted the changes to the Agreement between us.
In this Agreement, the following capitalised words have these specific meanings.
‘Course’ means any event or facility offered on the website, including without limitation classes, events, workshops, courses, corporate sessions.
‘Guest’ means a person (including friends, relatives, acquaintances, employees, employers or any other person with whom you have a business relationship) attending an Event under a booking made by you.
‘International Event’ means any Event which takes place at a location outside of the Netherlands.
When you book with us through our website, we do reserve the right to refuse bookings for any lawful reason, although we don’t expect to have to do this very often.
We will usually email you a confirmation email, to the email address provided when you set up your account, within 48 hours of booking. If you have not received your confirmation email within 48 hours of booking, please check your spam or junk email folder or filter and then contact us. It is your responsibility to ensure that your email is set up to allow you to receive your confirmation email, and we cannot accept any liability for any consequences of your not doing so.
The price for each Course is displayed on the website and must be paid in full, and in the currency stated, by iDeal payment, debit or credit card at the time of booking. On very rare occasions, the price might change due to unforeseen events, but you will always have the opportunity to cancel in the event that the price increases.
Gift vouchers must be used within 12 months of the purchase date. So if someone has been kind enough to buy you one, or if you’re buying a voucher for someone else, do make a note of the purchase date and remember to use the voucher before it expires.
If you have any special dietary, health or other requirements, please notify us at the time of booking at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to accommodate you, although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to. If it turns out that we are unable to meet your requirements, you can cancel your booking up to 14 days in advance and get a full refund. However, if you fail to notify us in advance and cancel within the stated period(s) as a result of our inability to accommodate you, we will not be able to offer a refund. In view of this, if you are booking within the relevant period, it is your responsibility to email us in advance of booking and obtain confirmation via email that we can accommodate you.
Cancellations Or Changes To Bookings
We want you to book with confidence, and as such we will accept cancellations up to 14 days before the course date, refunding your money in full. Please note, refunds can only be made to the original card used to make the order. If this is not possible, then we will raise a gift voucher for the correct value. You must notify us by email at email@example.com, and we must receive your email, in order to receive a refund. Fewer than 14 days before a course, though, we won’t be able to offer you a refund.
If you need to change the date of your ticket, you’ll need to cancel, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and rebook. Unfortunately, we can’t alter the dates of tickets.
If we need to cancel a Course for any reason, we may do so at any time before the Course is scheduled to begin. We do not expect this to happen except in exceptional circumstances, and of course we’ll refund your ticket money in full, or offer you a choice of alternative date or Course, but we won’t be able to compensate you for any other expenses you’ve incurred in connection with the Course.
We will try to notify you of cancellations, but we can’t guarantee this, especially when a Course is cancelled at short notice. Keeping your details updated by logging into the website will give us a better chance of reaching you in time.
Whilst floral designers, topics and timings confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of Amsterdam Flower School may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the designer, timings and/or topics. Any substitutions or alterations will be updated on our web page as soon as possible.
Attendance And Conduct
Please ensure you arrive on time for your Course.
We may sometimes film, photograph or otherwise record our Courses. Please note that your consent to being filmed or recorded as an attendee is a condition of this contract. By buying a ticket, you confirm the consent of you and all your Guests to being filmed or recorded. The recordings may be made available to the public via the website or by other means.
For everyone’s sake, we (and on our behalf, the staff of the venue) reserve the right to refuse you and/or any Guest admission or ask you and/or any Guest to leave if we think you and/or they are behaving in a disruptive way or in a way that violates the venue’s rules, or in a way that is likely to cause damage, nuisance, offence or injury. We will not issue any refund in this event.
We also request, and by entering into this Agreement you agree, to ensure that you and all Guest(s) attending an Event under a booking made by you comply with all health and safety, licensing, and other rules and regulations of the venue or applicable to the venue. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself and all Guest(s) with any rules and regulations that apply. You also agree not to bring in any illegal or hazardous items.
You also agree to comply with any reasonable request by the staff at the venue or supervising the Event (for example, without limitation, requests relating to health and safety).
Limitations Of Liability
Nothing in this Agreement excludes or limits our liability for personal injury or death caused by our negligence or in any other circumstance where such limitation of liability is not permitted by applicable law. The following two paragraphs apply subject to this paragraph, the provisions of which shall prevail in the event of any conflict.
