The Agreement shall continue until the end of the Program, when the Agreement shall expire other than for the T&Cs that are specifically stated to remain in force.

On or before the date of termination of the Agreement, you shall immediately pay any unpaid fees or other sums payable under these T&Cs (which for the avoidance of doubt shall include any remaining installments regardless of the point at which the Contract is terminated). Termination of this agreement shall not affect either of our accrued rights, remedies, obligations and liabilities of either of us as at the date of termination of this Contract, including the right to claim damages in respect of any breach of the Contract which existed at or before the date of termination. Any delay by us in exercising our right to terminate the Contract shall not constitute a waiver of our right to terminate or to seek any other remedy.
Paragraphs which expressly or by implication have effect after termination of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect after the date of termination of the Agreement.
This section ("Term and Termination") shall survive termination of the Agreement. Where the Agreement expires, this shall be treated as a termination for the purposes of all paragraphs that refer to “termination”.
Nothing in this section ("liability") shall limit our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any matter for which liability cannot be legally excluded or limited. We shall not be liable for any loss of profits, loss of business, loss of health, depletion of goodwill and/or similar losses, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goods, loss of contract, loss of corruption of data or information or any special, indirect, consequential or pure economic loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses suffered or incurred by the you as a result of you entering into the Agreement and/or us providing the Program.
Our total liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the Agreement shall in all circumstances be limited to the price paid by you for the Program. If we are prevented from or delayed in performing our obligations by your act or omission or by any circumstance outside of our control, we shall not be liable to you for any costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by you that arise directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
We shall not be not liable for additional costs incurred by you as a result of changes in (i) the Program, (ii) any other content, (iii) the location of venues, (iv) the time and date of sessions or (v) trainers, instructors or assistants.
The provisions of this section ("Liability") shall survive termination of the Agreement.

The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between us and supersedes any previous arrangement, understanding or agreement between us relating to the provision of the Program (which shall be deemed to have been terminated by mutual consent);
In entering into the Agreement you have not relied on any undertaking, promise, assurance, statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether in writing or not) of any person (whether party to the Contract or not) relating to the provision of the Program other than as expressly set out in the Contract.

This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
We may vary these T&Cs (other than the price payable by you for the Program) as we see fit from time to time and if we do, we shall notify you by email of the change of terms. Your continuation with the Program will be deemed to be your acceptance of any new T&Cs.
The Agreement is personal to you and you may not assign, transfer, charge, subcontract, sub-license or deal in any other manner with all or any of your rights under the Agreement. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of a Agreement, or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of the Agreement.
If we fail to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Agreement, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Agreement, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default. No waiver by us of any of these Terms shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is in writing.
If any of these T&Cs are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
A person who is not a party to the Agreement shall not have any rights under the Agreement (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of the Agreement.
The rights of the parties to terminate, rescind or agree any variation, waiver or settlement under the Contract are not subject to the consent of any person that is not a party to the Agreement.
