(b) update the course content to reflect changes in industry standards or practice, relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
(c) investigate any unacceptable conduct issues regarding your course participation.
7.2 Your rights if we suspend the supply of the Services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the Services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the supply of the Services for longer than 30 days, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for the Services whilst they are suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for the supply of Services if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 30 days and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Services in respect of the period after you end the contract.

We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the Services. As well as suspending the Services we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see Clause 14.6).
8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
8.1 Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer, then for most Services bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund for the part-time or full-time course. You will be refunded within 14 days of us receiving your request for a refund. However, this right to change your mind does not apply to software products such as the online course we provide, once the digital content has begun to be accessed, streamed or downloaded, or the performance of the digital content has started. By providing payment and receiving the digital content to your device you will be deemed to have commenced the accessing, streaming or downloading of the digital content, and you are therefore waiving your right to withdraw from the contract.
8.2 Cancellation due to faulty goods or services. If the digital content we have supplied to you is faulty, you will have a right to cancel your contract. See Clause 12 if you are a Consumer or Clause 14 if you are a business.
8.3 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has a right to change their mind (see Clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for goods or digital content is completed when the product is delivered, downloaded or streamed and paid for. A contract for Services is completed when we have finished providing the Services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before your full-time or part-time course is completed where we are not at fault and you are not a consumer who has changed their mind within 14 days, just contact us, by either of the methods set out in Clause 9.1) to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for aspects of the course not provided but we will deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) £100 as compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of you ending the contract.
9. HOW TO END YOUR CONTRACT WITH US (including if you are a consumer who has changed their mind)
9.1 Tell us you want to end the contract. To end the contract with us, please notify us in writing by:
(a) Email. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, home address, details of the order and, where available, your phone number and email address.
(b) Post. Print off the form in the Schedule of these terms and post it to us at the address on the form.
Or simply write to us at that address, including details of what you bought, when you ordered or received it and your name and address.
9.5 How we will refund you. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms we will refund you the price you paid for the Services including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment within 14 days of the date on which you have notified us of your wish to cancel the contract. However, we may make deductions from the price, as described below.
9.6 When we may make deduction from refunds if you are a consumer exercising your right to change your mind. If you are exercising your right to change your mind, in respect of the part-time and full-time courses, we may deduct from any refund an amount for the supply of the Service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract.
9.7 When your refund will be made. We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible, but in any event, within 14 days of you telling us that you have changed your mind. Please note that refunds will not be given for orders for digital content as customers are notified at the point of order that in providing payment and receiving the digital content to your device you will be deemed to have commenced the accessing, streaming or downloading of the digital content, and you are therefore waiving your right to withdraw from the contract or claim a refund.
10. OUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
10.1 We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:
