- The Culturevist Service, the Providers and our role.
2.1 Culturevist provides a booking and payment service allowing you to find services and content from third party suppliers (the “Providers”) of training and coaching services, advice or content (the “Provider Services”) via the Culturevist Service and facilitating the necessary purchases and access. Culturevist and the Culturevist Service acts as an interface in the transactions with the Providers, including facilitating the payment process between you and the Provider.
2.2 Culturevist is not the supplier of the Provider Services or content. When you make a purchase from a Provider you are entering into a contract with the Provider via the Culturevist Service. Culturevist is not a party to any agreement between you and any Provider and Culturevist accepts no responsibility for the Provider’s services or your actions.
2.3 Culturevist is a listing and market place service in relation to the Provider Services. We do not endorse any Providers and are not making any recommendations in relation to their services.
2.4 The Provider may provide its Provider Services through its employees, contractors or other authorised providers (“Specialists”). The Provider will at all times remain responsible for and directly liable for their Specialists’ acts or omissions. As appropriate, all references to the Provider will include a reference to the Specialist.
2.5 Whilst we hope to provide you with a credible range of providers to choose from, we do not take any responsibility for a Provider or your relationship with them, and in particular we make no representation or guarantee as to:
(a) any Provider or their service (whether through the platform or not);
(b) any information regarding the Provider, including but not limited to the information included on their profile;
(c) that the Providers are licensed, accredited, insured or registered in any way;
(d) the competence of any Provider or their appropriateness for your individual needs;
(e) a Provider’s availability and responsiveness;
(f) the relevance and usefulness of a Provider’s guidance, responses, advice or sessions; or
(g) the success of any sessions or contact with Providers.
- 2.6 You should take care in selecting a Provider and a session, and you do so at your own risk.
- Subscription Packages
3.1. Separately from the Provider marketplace and listing of Providers and Provider Services, described above, Culturevist also makes available bundles of content or other materials in packages on subscription (the “Subscription Packages”). These packages may include content licensed to Culturevist from Providers.
3.2. These Subscription Packages are sold by Culturevist, and in this instance you are buying access to the relevant content from Culturevist, even if it includes content licensed from a Provider.

To the extent that the Provider does not incorporate any further terms, the Provider / User Minimum Terms will govern the relationship between the Provider and a User. To the extent The Provider does incorporate any further terms, the Provider / User Minimum Terms will be deemed amended to the extent of any inconsistency.
