    5. Course Content and Weather:
      1. The programs we publish in our literature and on our website and describing the courses are designed to be illustrative in order to best explain the scope and type of activities you will be undertaking. It is very unlikely that any one program could be or would be followed precisely as it is published. Several factors outside of our control will determine this and dictate what can be accomplished reasonably during your course. The most influential factors will be the weather the conditions physical fitness or course participants.
      2. Taking these factors into consideration and the aims of the course as described in our literature the Course Director will construct the best program possible. The Course Director will review and may alter the program as the course progresses in response to the changing influence of these factors.
      3. Once the course is underway the Course Director, guides, instructors or leaders may change the activities at any time. This applies to all courses.
      4. Circumstances may arise where we are forced to alter dates, duration or accommodation before a course stars. We will try to inform you of any such changes as soon as we know of them.
      5. Our Course Directors, guides, instructors and leaders will do their utmost to ensure that any problems are solved for the benefit of the course participants as a whole. Signing the booking form signifies your acceptance of the Course Director’s authority to make decisions affecting the group or individuals. For instance the Course Director may require an individual or individuals to leave the course if they believe that a person or person’s health is at risk, if a person is not coping or may not cope with the technical, physical or mental demands of the course, if an illegal act has been or may be committed or conduct is, may become or has been detrimental to the safety, enjoyment or wellbeing of the group or any individual within the group.
    6. Acceptance of Authority:
      1. Employees of W.Y.J.B. and staff will use their best endeavors to resolve problems to the benefit of the Client as a whole. The Client must refrain from any conduct which may give offence or cause danger or damage to any person or property. If W.Y.J.B. or any of its suppliers believe that the Client is in breach of this obligation, likely to breach it or is otherwise unfit to partake in the activity, W.Y.J.B. or its suppliers may in their absolute discretion refuse the booking or have the Client removed from any property or facility. W.Y.J.B. will owe the Client no liability in such circumstances and the Client will be solely responsible for any costs incurred.
      2. The Course Director may require an individual or number or persons to leave the group if they believe that the Client’s health and safety are at risk, if an illegal act has been committed or the Client has behaved in a way as to endanger safety, enjoyment or the welfare of the group as a whole. In the event of this action, the Client involved shall not be entitled to any refund from W.Y.J.B. and will be required to meet all expenses involved in their immediate extraction.
    7. Personal Health:
      1. Except as disclosed in writing to W.Y.J.B. the Client confirms that they are in good mental and physical health and are unaware of any reason why they may be particularly unsuited to take part in the activity and/or service agreed upon or may be likely to suffer illness or injury during the activity and/or service.
      2. Failure to disclose any information that is required in the “Application Form” may result in W.Y.J.B. terminating the contract and withdrawing the Client from the activity and/or service on the grounds of incorrect information.

    8. General Points:
      1. The contract is personal to the Client and is not capable of transfer or assignment without prior written consent of W.Y.J.B..; b) While it is the intention of W.Y.J.B. to perform the obligations under this contract directly, W.Y.J.B. may choose to sub-contract elements of its obligations under this contract.
    9. Complaints:
      1. If there is a problem during the activity and or service period you must report it in the first instance to the instructor of your activity.

      2. In the unlikely event that the problem cannot be resolved at this time and you wish to raise a complaint, full written details must be sent to W.Y.J.B. within 28 days of the activity and or service finishing. Please include your booking reference number, party details and exact full details of your complaint on your letter, please include your daytime and evening contact telephone numbers.
