2.3 When you submit the Booking, this does not mean We have accepted your Booking. Our acceptance of the Booking will take place as described in clause 2.4. If We are unable to provide the Course, We will inform you of this and will not process the Booking.

2.4 These Terms will become binding on you and Us when We contact you that We are able to provide the Course, which We will confirm in

writing to you, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and Us.
