Spyder Forensics will accept no liability for deliveries delayed by the manufacturer, the shipping company or any other external condition over which Spyder Forensics cannot be reasonably expected to have any control.
- Reservation of Title
Notwithstanding delivery or anything contained in these terms or conditions, the title to the products shall not pass to the Purchaser until receipt of the full and final amount has been paid to Spyder Forensics, or a valid, signed Purchase Order has been received and accepted by Spyder Forensics. No sale or arrangement to sell to a third-party may be undertaken by the Purchaser until these conditions have been met in full.
The Purchaser agrees to pay the full amount invoiced by Spyder Forensics without deduction or set off within the period set out in writing on the invoice issue by Spyder Forensics.

This payment shall not be offset against any future training.
For Products, any cancellation outside the 21-day period shall be negotiable depending on whether Spyder Forensics has been charged by the manufacturer(s), or if Spyder Forensics has already made any payment or been caused any expense. For training classes, cancellation outside the 21-day period will be subject to the assessment of the reasons of such cancellation by Spyder Forensics, and Spyder Forensics reserves the right to retain or require the Purchaser to pay up to 50% of the training fees.
For the avoidance of doubts, the Purchaser agrees that any amounts payable under this paragraph 8 to Spyder Forensics shall constitute liquidated damages and not penalties. However, that if said damages shall be limited by law to a lesser amount, Spyder Forensics shall be entitled to recover the maximum amount permitted by law.
- Non- attendance or absence from the classes
Any student, who fails to appear at the commencement of class without a legitimate reason, as accepted by Spyder Forensics, will be liable for the full class fee.

Any medical absence must be justified by a Medical Certificate and any appearance at Court must be witnessed in writing. Such absence will result in retention of the attendance certificate and Spyder Forensics shall offer the student to make-up the missed hours in a future Spyder Forensics class, without further cost to the student. Spyder Forensics shall not be liable to pay any additional costs associated with the student’s subsequent attendance.
