  14. Cancellation or Variation of the booking by SLE

    1. We will do our best to provide the contracted facilities but occasionally we may have to make a significant change to your arrangements. The arrangements for bookings are often made many months in advance and it is sometimes inevitable that changes may become necessary. We reserve the right to make such changes should they become necessary. Most of these changes will usually be minor and we will advise you of them at the earliest possible date. Examples of minor changes include alteration of your route during your day on the yacht and change of accommodation or restaurant to another type of a similar standard within the local proximity.
    2. We also reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your booking. We will contact you to discuss alternative arrangements.
    3. Force Majeure: This means that we will not pay you compensation if we have to cancel or change your booking arrangements in any way because of war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances that may amount to force majeure.
    4. We do not accept responsibility for cancellation if the fault is caused by you or any member of your party, an unconnected third party or an event which we or our supplier could not with due care have foreseen or avoided.
    5. We reserve the right in our absolute discretion to terminate without further notice the booking arrangements of any client who refuses to comply with the instructions or orders of SLE personnel, agent or other responsible person or whose behavior in their opinion is likely to cause distress, damage, danger or annoyance to other clients, staff, any third party or to property. Upon such termination our responsibility for your booking ceases and we shall not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you.

  15. SLE Complaints Procedure

    1. We aim to provide you with the best experience possible, but if a problem occurs you must report it to us as soon as possible. If you fail to follow this simple procedure SLE will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint at the relevant time and this may affect your rights under this contract.

  16. Our Liability to You

    1. Our agreement with you and the service we provide to you is to source and book the experience for you.  We promise to use all reasonable skill and care in selecting the supplier(s) who will provide your experience.  We have no responsibility for the provision of the actual experiences themselves or for the acts or omissions of the supplier(s) concerned or any of its employees, agents, suppliers or sub-contractors.
    2. Your use or reliance upon any of the information contained in the SLE websites (including www.luxurystagandhen.com and www.sandbanksluxuryevents.com)   or our promotional material is entirely at your own risk and we shall in no way be responsible or liable for any such use or reliance. Furthermore we shall not be liable for the unavailability of the websites or any inaccuracy or incompleteness of any material to the greatest extent permitted by law.
    3. We shall not be liable to you for any loss where such loss is a business loss or the losses were caused in the course of business.
    4. We shall not be liable to you for any loss of profits, loss of time, loss of opportunity, loss of data, damage to reputation, loss of use of money, any consequential or indirect loss, or for any loss which is not reasonably foreseeable to us as a consequence of our breach of these terms. This exclusion of liability shall apply to all such losses whether they are direct, indirect or consequential losses.
    5. To the extent that we are liable to you our liability shall be limited to the cost of the goods or services (paid by you to us) that gave rise to such liability.

    7. We cannot be responsible for the computer equipment and telecommunications equipment you use in relation to the website or for the internet and telecommunications infrastructure in general. You are therefore entirely responsible for you own computer equipment and for the transmission of any information to the Websites and we shall have no responsibility in relation to the security of such information.

  17. Insurance

    1. You are advised to take out personal insurance for your protection.  Such insurance should cover the cost of cancellation by you and/or any member of your party and the cost of assistance in the event of illness or accident.  We cannot be responsible for injury or loss suffered by you other than as expressly set out in these booking conditions.  For this reason we request that you be fully and adequately insured.  Additionally, should you participate in events which do not form part of the experience booked with us it should be understood that this is also at your own risk and it is your responsibility to obtain the relevant insurance. Please confirm with your insurers that your insurance policy covers the activities you will be participating in.

  19. Special Requests

    1. If you have any special request, you must advise us in writing at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we regret we cannot guarantee any request will be met unless we have specifically confirmed this.  For your own protection, you should obtain confirmation in writing from us that your request will be complied with (where it is possible for us to give this) if your request is important to you. Any additional costs will be invoiced to you prior to the commencement of your experience. 

  20. General

    1. You may not assign, sub licence or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these Terms as such rights are personal to you.
    2. If any part of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction that part shall be enforced to the maximum extent possible and the validity of the remaining terms will be unaffected.
    3. If we do not exercise any right or remedy under these Terms, this will not mean that such right or remedy has been waived.
    4. These Terms and anything else expressly stated, contain our entire agreement and understanding with and you agree that you do not rely on any statement, warranty or representation that is not expressly included.
    5. Nothing in these Terms shall be enforceable by any third party under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.
