OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
1.1 The descriptions of the Products and Services on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to describe the content accurately, we cannot guarantee that an event, course or material will be exactly as described. This may be due to slight differences in tutor training methods or changes in the law between when you placed your order and when you receive the same. We have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, but changes are tailored to meet changes in law and practice.
1.2 We may update or require you to update downloadable training materials provided that such products shall always match the qualification standard that we described to you before you ordered the Product or applicable Service or training materials. Please note the LIGHT TREE MEDIA materials are provided “as is” and there is no retrospective update service once materials have been or made available to download as part of your course. Students must ensure materials are updated once they’ve completed the particular module or training course to which the materials are relevant.
1.3 We may change the content of any event, course or training materials:
(a) To reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
(b) To implement minor technical adjustments and improvements
In addition, as highlighted in the description of the course on our website, we may make more significant changes to these terms or the Product or Service, for example amending the date or varying the fees. If we do, we will notify you and you may then choose to end the contract before the changes take effect.
2. PRICING AND CHARGES
2.1 The price will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price advised to you is correct.

3.3 We may need certain information from you so that we can supply our Products and Services. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the course on our website. We will contact you in writing to ask for this information.
