NO RETURNS POLICY
Due to copyright law we are unable to accept returned physical items. Downloaded products are also non-refundable. The only exception is the statutory 14 day 'right to cancel' for unused / unopened goods. I.e. If you wish to return a CD you have purchased within 14 days you may do so only if it has not been opened and remains sealed in the enlosed envelope. You then need to contact us to inform us of your intention to return the CD/s. You must then return the order at your own expense using recorded delivery or similar means. A refund will be processed once we have verified that the CD/s have not been used or damaged in any way. Regarding download products, you have 14 days to cancel your order provided the download has not been accessed. To clarify, our ordering system records every time a download link is clicked on. Every such click will be regarded as a complete download. Therefore once the link has been clicked on the right to cancel is lost. If when clicking the link the customer is unable to complete the download, don't worry, free technical support is available. We promise that you will receive all the material you have paid for one way or another. For further details please see our FULL TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Any faults reported by customers at any time must not include faults caused as a result of wear and tear, e.g. CDs that have become scratched/scuffed/marked/cracked. In these cases the customer will be offered a replacement CD at a reduced price.

INVOICING FOR DOWNLOADS
Regarding paying for your download via our invoice method of payment, please note that your computer's IP address will be recorded and payment will always be required.

Please note that the invoice method of payment is intended for exclusive use by UK based schools only (excludes private nursery establishments, day care establishments, crèches, toddler groups, church groups, playgroups, or any other private individuals, organisations or businesses).

ALL material on this website including images, sound clips and text are protected by copyright. ALL material is provided for advertising/approval purposes only, and may not be copied, used or resold in any way or for any other purpose, without the express written permission of Learn2soar Limited. By using this website you are agreeing to this policy. Any reported incident of a violation of this policy will be passed to relevant law enforcement authorities.
All our products are protected by copyright worldwide. We allow the purchasing establishment/individual to make one copy of the CD purely for back up purposes. Customers are strictly not allowed to make multiple copies of CDs, even for rehearsal purposes. Such actions will be treated as 'acts of music piracy' and legal action will be taken.
However, multiple copies of any of our products can be purchased on this website at the following discounted rates:
Additional "Back Up" CDs (i.e. A duplicate of what you already have) = £8 per CD (+£1.99 P&P)
'No Frills' Rehearsal CDs (i.e. Just the audio tracks for children to learn from) = £14 for a pack of 4 CDs. If ordering a large quantity further discounts are available. P&P extra depending on quantity of CDs purchased. Please contact us for details.
Regarding our offer to allow customers to make one free copy of CDs purchased from us for back up purposes: Please note that this applies to full priced products only. '£8 Extra Back Up' CDs and Rehearsal CDs may not be copied.
Furthermore, we will be under no obligation to provide a free back up CD if the buyer’s attempts to make one back up CD fail. We are happy to provide technical support and advice, but in the unlikely event that you are completely unable to make a copy yourself, then your only option to to purchase a back up copy from us for just £8.
UNAUTHORISED DISTRIBUTION OF LEARN2SOAR CONTENT
We do NOT allow any type of content from any of our products to be placed online, or broadcast in any way, shape or form, under ANY circumstances. The only exception is where the explicit written permission of Learn2soar Limited has been sought and granted in advance, and an appropriate royalty fee has been agreed.
This includes for example, displaying videos of your performance online, sharing scripts, song files, music files, lyrics or PowerPoints online, or broadcasting any of our material via film, television or radio. If you do place any such content online, or broadcast any of our material without permission, you will be required to remove the material immediately (if appropriate) and you will have to pay a fine.
To explain, an increasing number of buyers are attempting to place digital material from our publications on their websites, facebook, YouTube, etc... While we acknowledge that this is often done with good intentions, unfortunately it also allows other potential customers to access our products for free, thereby robbing us of our rightful income. We have also had the unpleasant situation of discovering that criminal gangs in remote areas of the world had downloaded several of our publications via unauthorised postings on various school websites. These gangs were then trying to re-sell our products via fake websites for criminal gain! We strongly advise against downloading anything claiming to be our products from any website other than this one. Criminal gangs who operate these fake websites will either steal your card details or infect the download with a virus. For all these reasons we are having to clamp down hard on users who post our material online, treating each case as an act of piracy.
Similarly, we have also found several circumstances of our material being broadcast via television and radio, where no permission has been sought. This means that Learn2soar writers are not receiving royalties due. For this reason we are also now clamping down on film / radio / television / broadcast companies and corporations who continue to try to use our material without permission.
Establishments or individuals who are caught having used material from our publications online will have the offending webpage or link/s recorded by an independent third party (so as to avoid any potential dispute). They will then be required to remove the offending page or link/s immediately and will be fined (see below). Companies and corporations who are caught having used material from our publications in film, radio or television without permission, will have the offending material recorded by an independent third party (so as to avoid any potential dispute). They will then be required to remove the offending material from public display immediately (if appropriate) and will be fined (see full terms and conditions document for details).
Individuals / establishments who are fined will be automatically invoiced for the amount due and will have 30 days to pay. For every day that the offending material remains online after we have asked for it to be removed, additional charges will apply. Please see our full terms and conditions for details.
WHAT IS ALLOWED: You may place digital content from any of our publications on an internal server ONLY, so that pupils / staff in your establishment can access the material. However, you will need to purchase a Digital Files Site Licence here, and you must ensure that the material cannot be accessed by the general public in any way. Additionally, broadcast / film companies may use our material if permission has been obtained in advance from Learn2soar and a royalties payment has been agreed.
Most of the musicals/plays that we sell require a performance licence to be purchased before the production can legally be performed. We are the only providers of the licence that you require. PRS/MCPS licences do not apply.
Therefore, in ordering from us, you agree that once you've decided that a performance will be staged (of any of our works which require a licence) you will order an appropriate licence from us (before the performance, not afterwards). There are a few circumstances where free licences are issued, but even here you must still inform us of your performance intentions so that a free licence can be arranged.
DVD/Video/CD Recording Rights Licences also must be purchased if the purchasing establishment is planning to record one of our works in any way shape or form.
Where we discover that an establishment has performed one of our musicals, or recorded any aspect of any of our published material, but an appropriate licence hasn't been ordered in advance, the establishment will be issued with an invoice for the full amount of the particular licence plus additional compensatory charges.
Please note that when ordering over the phone, our operators will not always ask customers about their potential licensing requirements at the time of ordering CDs, due to time constraints and due to the fact that most customers simply want to view/listen to the product in detail before deciding on their licensing requirements.
Our satisfaction guarantee relates to the technical ability for you to be able to satisfactorily access and use any product purchased from us. I.e. We know that some customers can be put off by the technical nature of our products as they come in the form of either digital downloads or physical enhanced multipurpose CDs. Therefore, we guarantee that in the unlikely event that you experience any difficulty in receiving, accessing or using any part of any product ordered from us, we promise that we will urgently provide you with as much support and assistance as is required, to guarantee that you WILL be able to access and use all of the material that you have purchased from us. In the unlikely event of a continual failure by the customer to be able to access any particular material purchased from us, this does not entitle the buyer to a refund or compensation. Instead we will always provide the customer with the material required via alternate means.
Here at Learn2soar Limited, we take the security and privacy of our customers very seriously. Learn2soar Limited does not disclose buyers' information of any type to any third party. The only information we ever store about customers is simple contact details and details of previous orders. We do NOT store credit/debit card information or bank account details in any way. Any information you do pass on to us is held in the strictest confidence. Furthermore, regarding the storing of your contact details, we guarantee that this will never be used to participate in activities like telephone 'cold calling', fax or email ‘spamming’ or deluging you with junk mail or sales marketing of any type (other than possibly sending you our brochure or similar advertising leaflet/letter once every year or so) By using our website you are agreeing to all privacy / copyright related policies detailed on this webpage. If you do not agree to any of them, then please do not use our website. Thank you.
