Each contractual agreement on the website is governed by the General Terms and Conditions that were valid on the date that the contractual agreement took place.

- Has read and understands what is outlined in said terms and conditions
- Is a person with sufficient capacity to enter into contractual agreements
- Assumes all obligations outlined in the present General Terms and Conditions

2. CONTRACTING A COURSE
When the contract for a course is finalised, in order for the User to be able to access the services on offer they should register through the website by creating a User account. In order to do this, the User should be willing to openly and voluntarily provide the personal details required.
Divulgación Dinámica S.L. will provide the student with a username and password to access the educational resources and services, and the user will take full responsibility for using them diligently and will commit to not making them available to third parties. The user will also commit to letting Divulgación Dinámica know if they are lost or stolen or if any potential unauthorised use by a third party has occurred, so that Divulgación Dinámica may proceed to block the account immediately.
Once the user account has been created, we inform that, in accordance with what is outlined in article 27 of the Ley 34/2002 de Servicios de la Sociedad de la Información y del Comercio Electrónico (LSSI), the contractual procedure will follow the subsequent steps:
- The client will sign up through the registration form made available for each programme, filling in all of the information that is asked of them.
- The client will receive an automatically generated email with the details for accessing the Online Secretary.
- The client will access the Online Secretary to complete the following processes:
- Completing the payment of the educational programme agreed upon contractually and providing proof of said payment
- Request of documentation (provisional certificates, receipts)
- Contacting the centre to mention any incident or comments that should be taken into account
- Obtaining the access keys to the learning platform
- Checking and noting the start and end dates of the agreed upon educational course.
- The students will be given access to the necessary technical and human resources in order to carry out the contractual course and personal data will be corrected if necessary.
- All documentation and content of Divulgación Dinámica will be provided in Spanish and in the language(s) that are indicated expressly.
3. INFORMATION ABOUT THE COURSES
Divulgación Dinámica gives a lot of importance to the essential characteristics of the courses offered through detailed descriptions of these characteristics. The User can request information about the courses by calling (+34) 954 28 60 37 or by emailing the address firstname.lastname@example.org
The prices indicated on the website www.ddfsocialelearning.co.uk include value-added tax (VAT).
Divulgación Dinámica reserves the right to modify its prices at any time; nonetheless, it commits to always guaranteeing that the costs indicated on the website at the moment the contract for the course is made are the ones that will be used for said contract.
In the case of there being a price that is erroneous and/or suspiciously low for any reason (a bug, manual error, technical error, etc.), the course contract will be annulled even in the case of its initial validity. This will be communicated to the User.
5. PAYMENT METHODS
Payments will be made through the Online Secretary via transfer, card or PayPal.
6. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL: SATISFIED OR REIMBURSED.
The User has FIFTEEN (15) calendar days to withdraw from a course with which they are not satisfied. This period of time applies from the first day of the contractual start of each course, which will also be the payment date of the course. The withdrawal should be done through written notification through the Online Secretary.
This right of withdrawal is not applicable to the electronic files that are made available online which may be downloaded or reproduced immediately for permanent use.
Therefore, Divulgación Dinámica will not make a refund of any kind if the User has utilised the Access keys to the training platform where they have been able to download the course materials.
In the case of a reimbursement:
– If the User withdraws from a course within fifteen days from the starting date of the contract, Divulgación Dinámica will reimburse them using the same method of payment through which the initial payment was made. If this reimbursement method is not possible, Divulgación Dinámica will reimburse the User through bank transference. Divulgación Dinámica will do everything possible to reimburse the User as promptly as possible.
– The cases that are excluded from this reimbursement are those in which the entry call for the e-learning programme has been made, but it has not been finalised on time by the User for reasons unrelated to the Centre.
7. LITIGATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Divulgación Dinámica is not held responsible for the present terms and conditions not being executed in a case of force majeure and in the case of the lack of a user or of an unforeseeable event on behalf of a party who is not involved in the contract.
Divulgación Dinámica is not held responsible for any loss of data, documents, or any damage in general caused by the User’s failure to make a security copy of the data contained within the acquired products.
Divulgación Dinámica is not held responsible for the consequences that could arise from an improper use of the courses sold on the Portal.

All of the User-written opinions on the Portal are looked over by the Divulgación Dinámica team. If the opinions violate the law, ethics or morals (abusive advertisement, defamation, insults, comments out of context, etc.) Divulgación Dinámica reserves the right to reject these opinions and make them known to the appropriate authorities.
