1.4 Should a dispute arise between the Customer and the Supplier, all matters shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, Scottish law, and the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland.

2. Bookings

2.1 When booking your workshop on the Nature TTL website, you must ensure all of the information asked of you is correct.

2.3 Nature TTL acts only as the agency for the supplier of the workshop. Your booking contract is made with the workshop supplier.

3.4 Should you cancel your workshop up until, but not including, 30 days prior to the booking date, you will be refunded 50% of the workshop fee. The remaining 50% will be retained by Nature TTL.

3.5 No refunds will be given for cancellations made within 30 days of the confirmed booking date of the workshop session.

4. Workshops

4.1 Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. Whilst workshop leaders will make their best efforts to ensure you see the target species, we cannot guarantee this due to the nature of the task. You will not be refunded or offered another session in the event that you do not see or take photos of wildlife.

4.2 We cannot control the weather. Should your workshop go ahead, you will not be refunded or offered another session if the weather is bad.

5.2 Alcohol or drugs are not to be consumed during the workshop.

5.3 Smoking is not permitted from when you leave the collection point, until your return.

5.4 Your workshop leader has the right to terminate your workshop, with no refund or alternative session offered, should your conduct be deemed threatening or potentially damaging to either the natural environment, wildlife or the workshop leader themselves.

5.5 Any damage caused by the customer, or the customer’s party, must be paid for in full to the workshop supplier.
