CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY

We recognise how busy our clients are and that sometimes problems occur causing our clients to request to change or to cancel certain services. We value our client relationships and will do everything we can to accommodate a change of services or date although this is sometimes not possible due to availability of consultants and existing client demands. However, it can be very problematic when clients make these changes on very little notice. This means those services cannot then be offered to other clients. 

 

Our consultants run a fixed schedule specifically to try to accommodate the needs of our clients. Many are booking CPO hours a month ahead and meetings and/or travel may have been booked.

 

When contracted services are cancelled (these being less than 30 days ahead of the session or event) a cancellation charge of 50% of the contracted fee will be applied and invoiced at Spring CPO's discretion. In the event of a cancellation within 10 days of the upcoming session or event, we will apply a cancellation charge of 100% of the contracted fee (collectively “the cancellation charge”).

 

We have discretion to waive cancellation charges in exceptional cases.

 

We are always acting in the fair interests to all of our clients, however, we reserve the right to immediately (upon 2 days of the cancellation notice) cease in writing the relationship with a client if cancellations continue.
