12.4 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
12.5 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

12.7 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
12.8 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

12.9 These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto and supersede all prior agreements and understandings between the parties.

12.11 Whilst we will try to ensure you always have the same coach in a particular class, we cannot guarantee this as teachers may fall ill, leave or cancel for personal reasons. On occasion we may also need to have a new coach join or lead your lesson in order to complete their coaching qualifications. This will in no way affect the quality of your lesson.
12.12 Our Sessions are designed with a child’s physical, social, cognitive and emotional development in mind. Moving children into classes before a certain age could be challenging for them and detrimental to their progress. We have therefore applied a minimum and maximum age to each level, which is based around these considerations and must be adhered to.
12.13 We reserve the right to make amendments to our Terms and Conditions at any time to reflect changes in our business or statutory obligations. The new version will be posted on our website and will take effect immediately upon posting. If applicable these changes will be communicated to all our customers by email.
