Terms of Sale

By placing an order you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.

Dispatch times may vary according to availability and subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible. 

In order to contract with Fashion Stylist Institute you must be over 18 years of age and possess a valid credit or debit card issued by a bank acceptable to us. Fashion Stylist Institute retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with. This will usually be Fashion Stylist Institute or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third party Fashion Stylist Institute is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. The cost of foreign products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.

(a) Our Contract 

When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order: this email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. A contract between us will not be formed until we send you confirmation by e-mail that the goods (or course/s) which you ordered have been dispatched to you. Only those goods listed in the confirmation e-mail sent at the time of dispatch will be included in the contract formed.

(b) Pricing and Availability

Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.

(c) Payment 

Upon receiving your order we carry out a standard authorization check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Your card will be debited upon authorization being received. The monies received upon the debiting of your card shall be treated as a deposit against the value of the goods you wish to purchase. Once the goods have been dispatched and you have been sent a confirmation email the monies paid as a deposit shall be used as consideration for the value of goods you have purchased as listed in the confirmation email.

d) Refunds

FSI does not refund the course payments since all material is accessible and obtainable online immediately. Open courses are considered to be accessed.

Non Completion - FSI holds no responsibility for students who abandon or do not finish their course on time. Effective time management will secure your completion within the generous 12 weeks allotted for you to finish the course.  FSI is NOT approved to extend the time limit for students beyond the 12 weeks. We do NOT extend and students are responsible for completing their course work within that time period. Twelve weeks (90 days) is ample and sufficient time to complete your course. Please plan your study plan accordingly. We can make NO exceptions to this policy. Note that upon completion of your course all materials and training modules complete and cannot be accessed again.

Other:

1courses are locked and must be taken in sequential order.  You will not be able to jump ahead to take a final exam without first completing all assignments and modules assigned to you in the numbered order therefore material for each lesson is only available in that lesson. FSI does not furnish manuals up front, by course end all material is supplied (materials listed in course description). 2FSI is not authorized to and does not extend set course time limits (up to 12 weeks, 30 days etc.) to students who do not finish their course in the generous time frame allotted.  Bulk purchases are considered as one purchase when a discount is applied and accepted by the student therefore NONE of the courses can be refunded even if one or more have not been accessed. 5 Final certification is awarded when all requirements of the course are achieved. Certification is generated with ten days of completion and is digitally transmitted. 6 Changing your mind is not a valid refund reason. If you have uncertainty about taking an online course you must contact us first. We do not refund the course payments since all material is accessible and obtainable online immediately. Open courses are considered to be accessed.
