In addition to the terms and conditions detailed for each individual event, the following additional terms and conditions shall apply in respect of any John Lewis Partnership virtual event (JLP virtual event).
These terms and conditions set out the basis on which the John Lewis Partnership will provide services to you and anyone you book a JLP virtual event for. For the purposes of these terms and conditions, the John Lewis Partnership includes John Lewis Plc and Waitrose Limited ("John Lewis", "us", "we", "our"). These terms and conditions apply to your use of our Virtual Events Services (the Services). The Services means all services provided by John Lewis to you for the purposes of booking, accessing and attending events remotely via digital conferencing facilities and the provision of online classes and seminars on a variety of subjects.
We may amend these terms from time to time. Every time you wish to use the Services, please check these terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time. Your continued use of the services following such change shall be deemed to be your acceptance of such change.
John Lewis has taken every care in the preparation of the Services and will provide the classes with reasonable care and skill. However, to the extent permitted by applicable law, John Lewis does not represent or warrant the accuracy or reliability of any of the information or content about any goods or services, software or advertisements which are provided or distributed through, or linked, downloaded or otherwise accessed by way of the Services.
We will endeavour to run the JLP virtual event as advertised. However, we reserve the right to make changes, including to the running order and timings for the event prior to the event. Where reasonably possible, we will provide prior notice of such changes. In the event of a significant change to the content of the event then we will on request refund the event ticket price (if any).
No warranty is given that the JLP virtual events or associated services shall be available on an uninterrupted basis.
You must be at least 18 years old to book a JLP virtual event or 18 years old to book and participate in a JLP virtual event which has alcohol as a subject matter. Children may attend classes which are unrelated to alcohol but must be accompanied by a parent/guardian over the age of 18. The accompanying adult will be solely responsible for any child or children attending a JLP virtual event. By booking any JLP virtual event, you warrant that at the time of the event you will be at least 18 years old or over, or, in the case of events relating to alcohol, 18 years old or over.
Payments & Cancellations
We will not be responsible for any remedy for inconvenience or other related costs that you may incur resulting from the cancellation, postponement or changes to any JLP virtual event.
We will not tolerate any behaviour or conduct which, in our reasonable opinion, poses a danger or causes or is likely to cause nuisance, annoyance, offence or distress to any participant of a JLP virtual event, and we may terminate a class immediately if any participant displays conduct of this kind. We reserve the right to blacklist you from our services and/or take any appropriate legal action, in the event that a legitimate complaint is made about your conduct during a JLP virtual event.
You must not use equipment for recording or transmitting (by digital or other means) any audio, visual or audio-visual material or any information or data of the JLP virtual event. Any recording made of an event in breach of the conditions shall belong to us.
You may be refused admission to, or be asked to leave, the JLP virtual event at any time if:
(a) you fail to comply with any of the Conditions or any instructions given by us, our employees or agents;
(b) in our reasonable opinion you are unfit to attend the event;
(c) your ticket(s) are void; and / or
(d) the host (acting reasonably) considers it appropriate.
If you are asked to leave, you will not be entitled to a refund nor will we be responsible for any other loss or expense incurred in association with attending the event.
If you are asked to leave a JLP virtual event, you must do so promptly and without disturbing others.
Privacy & Security
The personal data we collect about you may include your name, date of birth or age, email, address, telephone number, debit/credit card details, image/video and audio recordings (when you attend or participate in a virtual class), and marketing preferences.
We will process your personal data in order for us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you (e.g. to provide you with the service you have asked for, such as virtual classes), for compliance with our legal and regulatory obligations, where you have consented to us processing your personal data (e.g. to receive marketing and updates from us) and where such processing is necessary for the fulfilment of our legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests include, being able to effectively communicate with you about the services you have asked us to provide, keep effective records, sell part or all of our business to a future purchaser, to effectively manage and administer our business, to ensure the safety and security of the Services and those that use it, and sending you marketing and updates.
In certain circumstances, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such as the USA. This will usually be the case where our trusted third party partners and suppliers are based in non-EEA countries. Where we transfer any personal data to a country outside the EEA, we will always do so in compliance with applicable laws (including data protection laws). This will normally involve transferring your personal data to a non-EEA country:
- on the basis that the recipient country offers an adequate level of protection for your personal data;
- under EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses; or
- under an approved data sharing scheme, such as the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.
We will not retain your personal data for longer than necessary to provide you with the services that you have requested, or if longer, the period of time required by applicable laws and regulations.
JLP virtual events may include a feature that allows video, audio and any documents and other materials to be exchanged or viewed during a session and we may record JLP virtual events for safety and security purposes. The recordings may capture any images, video and audio transmitted during a class by any participant depending on which communicative features are enabled. By joining a JLP virtual event, you consent to such recordings.
If you choose, or you are provided with, any user identification code, password or any other piece of information by us, or by a third party provider, as part of the Services, you must treat such information as confidential.
We do not guarantee that our site, or the provision of the Services, will be secure or free from bugs or viruses. You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programmes and platform to access our site. We recommend that you use your own virus protection software.
We are the owner or the licensee of the intellectual property rights in our websites and the JLP virtual events, as well as any JLP virtual event materials. Those works are protected by copyright law, and all such rights are reserved. You must not use any part of the JLP virtual event content or materials for commercial purposes without obtaining a licence to do so from us or our licensors.
These terms and any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with them or their subject matter or formation shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales. The courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute arising under or in relation to them. If any provision of these terms and conditions is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable by a court, then that provision shall be deemed severed from the rest of these terms and conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. No delay or failure by us to exercise any powers, rights or remedies under these terms and conditions will operate as a waiver of them, nor will any single or partial exercise of these powers, rights or remedies preclude any other or further exercise of them.
Any questions regarding these terms and conditions, or if you have any issues or complaints, should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
