2.0 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The following terms and conditions represent an agreement between The NEXT LEVEL COURSES LIMITED (NLC) trading as Event Crowd, and the student, (or any payee or guarantor on behalf of the student), booked onto the course. By accepting a place on any Event Crowd Course, the student accepts all terms outlined below in their entirety.

By enrolling onto the course, students acknowledge and agree to pay the course costs in full at the agreed time. Failure to adhere to the agreed payment schedule will result in legal action being taken in order to reclaim the agreed costs plus additional costs accrued during the process of reclamation.

2.2 SERVICE OR PRODUCT UPDATES OR CHANGES
Event Crowd reserves the rights to update, replace, change or remove parts of the course where Event Crowd sees fit. This includes, but is not limited to lectures, seminars, bonus content, assessments, templates, webinars, student learning portal, website, communication channels, policies and procedures.
Any updates or changes to the course or information will be communicated to students via their provided contact details upon or during enrolment for the course.

This includes audio/visual content, written material including any written or verbal communications, along with any and all work produced by students whilst on this course. This includes but is not limited to course materials, lecture notes, ancillary slide decks, websites, or any formal or informal guidance or advice given by staff, lecturers or course partners.
Course content can be updated, replaced, changed or removed at any time.
2.3 STUDENT AMENDMENTS
At Event Crowd’s sole discretion and on condition there is available space, students may defer the start of their course to a later start date by emailing a written request to Event Crowd at least 14 days prior to the start of the original course. Students may also bring their start date closer by emailing a written request at least 14 days prior to the start of the course. Students may be charged a £20 administration fee for this amendment.
Event Crowd courses are accessible to students for a period of 12 months (365 days) from the date of course purchase. The course must be completed within this 12-month period to receive the associated certification. After the 12-month period, whether the student has completed the course or not, students will no longer have access to the content of the course. This is a strict no-extension policy that is non-negotiable.
At Event Crowd’s sole discretion and on the conditions detailed below, a student may request an extension to the course beyond the 12-month period that the course can be accessed by the student. This is not a decision we take lightly, and we have a strict no-extensions policy, any decision upon this is reviewed by our internal leadership team and is decided on a case-by-case basis.
This decision will be subject to the following conditions:
- Whether the student has paid Event Crowd for the course in full and Event Crowd has confirmed that the total price of the course has been received by Event Crowd.
- The student presents a valid reason as to why they require an extension of access to the course.
- The student must present documentation as proof to support their reasoning.
- Written confirmation of the request, reasoning and associated proof.
To provide written proof please email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or send post to Event Crowd, Unit 6, Coy Pond Business Park, Ingworth Road, Poole, Dorset, BH12 1JY.
2.4 PHOTOGRAPHY CONSENT
Lectures, webinars or events featuring individuals may be photographed or filmed for marketing purposes, which can be used on our website, social media accounts, internal or external communications, in print material or on various Course partner channels.
By enrolling on any Event Crowd Course, students acknowledge this and agree to be photographed, recorded and featured in such materials.
The Event Crowd will never sell or pass images to third parties who do not have a legitimate business interest in the material.
2.5 VOLUNTEERING, PLACEMENT AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES
Any volunteering or paid opportunities advertised by the Events Crowd are done so in good faith for the professional development of students.
Event Crowd takes all reasonable action to verify the authenticity of volunteering and paid opportunities, but we cannot guarantee the exact experience of the offer being provided by external organisations.
Any volunteering or placements undertaken are separate agreements between the individual and the external organisation directly, and it is up to the student to ensure they have taken all reasonable to steps to ensure their wellbeing.
Event Crowd does not accept any responsibility for the volunteering or paid opportunities students are presented with in regard to:
- Monetary renumeration for expenses, time or work.
- Contractual obligations agreed to between the student and the employer.
- Any incidents, accidents or issues that are incurred before, during or after, or are in relation to or a direct result of, the volunteering or paid opportunity.
Any of the above points must be handled and dealt with, between the student and the specific employer. Event Crowd does not accept any responsibility and will not act as a mediator or communicator between the two parties.
2.5.1 EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES
In offering volunteering and paid opportunities to our students, Event Crowd ensures that we can provide equal opportunities to all students by offering the opportunity to each and every student.
Some volunteering or paid opportunities from external organisations may require the student to have completed a specific amount of the course (e.g. 75% of the course) or to have completed the course, due to the nature of responsibility within the opportunity. In this instance, these opportunities will be offered to the groups of students that this opportunity is suitable for.
Opportunities presented will be located across the United Kingdom and in some instances, travel outside of the UK may be required. In addition, application processes for specific opportunities may differ.
2.6 FEEDBACK & DEVELOPMENT
Throughout the course we will periodically request feedback from students in order to refine the product. This can vary from opinions on course content, lecturers, time constraints, platform usability, and other course-related data.
Students are expected to respond to this request for feedback in an appropriate and timely manner. The feedback in no way affects the outcomes of the course or the entitlements of the students to any Event Crowd offerings.
2.7 STUDENT ENGAGEMENT
As a customer and student of Event Crowd, students have the right to converse with our internal customer service and academic team to a reasonable standard. Appropriate communication channels include, email, telephone, webchat, webinar or by post.
