Services. When you request swim instructions services (a “Request”) from us either in person, by telephone or through our website, we reserve the right to accept or reject such request. If we accept your request for swim instruction services, these Terms will govern our relationship with respect to the provision of such swim instruction services (the “Services”).
Scheduling of Services. You may register for and order Services for your Child by telephone or in person at our location (the “Location”). When you register for the Services, you will be required to select a class schedule (a “Session”) from amongst the schedules offered by us. The Session will set out the times for each individual class included in the Session (each a “Class”). Once you have selected a Session, you will only be permitted to modify individual Class times or the Session generally in accordance with these Terms. Each Session is intended for specific age groups and skill levels and your Child will not be permitted to participate in Sessions not intended for their age group or skill level unless otherwise consented to by Aquastream. All Classes will be held at the location communicated to you at the time of registration. Your registration is not complete until we receive full payment of the required Fees and signature of all required documents by you and/or your Child. Aquastream requires a registration fee of $125 (or such other fee as is communicated to you by Aquastream) which will be applied towards the Fees (the “Registration Fee”).
Cancellations and Rescheduling by Customer. No refunds will be permitted for cancellations unless you cancel an entire Session at least twenty (20) days prior to the commencement of the first Class included in such Session. In no event are Registration Fees refundable (except as specifically set forth herein). In order to reschedule a specific Class, you must inform Aquastream in writing at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance of the commencement of such Class (the “Minimum Notice”). Provided that the Minimum Notice is provided in writing (at firstname.lastname@example.org), Aquastream will permit up to two (2) rescheduled classes for each Session (each a “Make Up Class”), subject to availability and these Terms. Aquastream will use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide a Make Up Class but cannot guarantee availability of the same instructor, time or day. Make up Classes must be within the original Session and no Make Up Classes will be carried over to future Sessions. In the event that the Minimum Notice is not provided in writing, no makeup Classes will be provided. In the event that a Make Up Class is provided by Aquastream and your Child is not able to or does not attend, you will forfeit your right to further Make Up such Class. Make Up Classes can only be rescheduled if we receive written notice seventy-two (72) hours prior to the start of the Make Up Class. No Make Up Class will be provided unless a Make Up Class is scheduled within three (3) days of a cancellation. In the event that a Session has commenced, and you or your Child can no longer attend the Classes in such Session, there will be no refunds, transfer of classes to another student and no credits applied to your account, provided, however, that up two (2) Make Up Classes will be available for such Session in accordance with these Terms.
Cancellations and Rescheduling by Aquastream. In the event that Aquastream must reschedule or cancel a specific Class, it will provide you with as much advance notice of such rescheduling or cancellation as possible. In the event of such cancellation or rescheduling, Aquastream will provide a Make Up Class; within the same Session, subject to availability. In the event that Aquastream is unable to provide a Make Up Class, it will provide a credit in the amount of the Fees attributable to such Class (not including the Registration Fees) which you may use towards a Class in the current or the following Session. In the event that Aquastream provides Make Up Class and your Child is unable to attend, you will forfeit your rights to any further rescheduled Classes on account of the Class rescheduled or cancelled by Aquastream. Make Up Classes can only be rescheduled if Aquastream receives written notice seventy-two (72) hours prior to the start of the Make Up Class. In the event that Aquastream cancels an entire Session prior to its commencement, the Fees for such Session will be refunded in full, including Registration Fee.
