5. EXCLUSION OF THE RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL. CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT AND LATE ARRIVALS
5.1 Please note that according to the Italian Consumer Protection Law, in case of distance contracts, the right of withdrawal of consumers does not apply to contracts having as object services such as accommodation, transport, catering or leisure services, when the Seller undertakes to provide these services on a certain date.
5.2 As a consequence, the right of withdrawal does not apply to the Services commercialised on the Website, since they consist of courses, webinars, programs and session which are provided on a certain date.
5.3 Notwithstanding the above, Chiara Cattaneo recognise the right of the Client to cancel a single treatment with a 48h prior notice. If a cancellation is made more than 48 hours before a treatment at a clinic, then the client will not be charged. If a client misses or cancels an appointment, giving less than 48-hours notice, then the full payment for the session will still be due, except in certain circumstances where Chiara Cattaneo, at her discretion can opt for another solution.
5.4 Due to Chiara Cattaneo other clinic commitments, treatments will end at the scheduled time. Therefore, the clients who arrive late will have their treatment time reduced by the number of minutes they arrived late. The treatment will finish at the pre-agreed time. The full cost of the treatment booked will still be payable by the client.
6.1 The Client, in giving his consent to the conclusion of the contract, declares to have well understood the content of the programs, courses, webinars, sessions and other Services displayed on the Website. The Seller declines any and all liability where the contents of the Services do not meet the expectations of the Client.
6.2 The Seller and or its employees and independent contractors do not practice a health care profession, therefore no Service constitutes in any form a diagnosis or a therapy, conventional or unconventional. While AcuEnergetics® can be used entirely on its own, it is not intended as a substitute for medical or psychological diagnosis and treatment. If you suspect any disease, you should consult your physician. The health of you and your loved ones is important and it is not our purpose to replace the services of your doctor or traditional medicine. If you are currently taking medication that you wish to discontinue using, you should consult a doctor to help you do this. If you decide to stop the medication without the approval of a physician, you assume full responsibility for this decision.
6.3 The Seller will not be liable for the failure of the Services or its cancellation due to an unpredictable event independent of its will, such as natural calamities, riots, national strikes, fires, pandemic, etc. In this case, The Seller will try to adopt solutions that make it possible to avoid, or at least limit, the consequences of force majeure.
6.4 If you purchase an event, retreat or program and it includes course materials, these materials will only be made available to and accessed by you. You must not make available, copy, distribute, sell, broadcast or otherwise supply in any medium or manner these materials (or any part of them) to any third party.
