Your commitment to Eden Personal Training:

In respect of this the maximum length of time that we will extend your package is equal to 30 further days.

For example: If only 3 sessions have been used of a package of 12 then 50% is non refundable at signing and the remaining 50% of the fees will be proportioned 3/12 retained and 9/12 refunded. For example a package cost of £600 for 12 sessions. 50% non refundable = £300 the remaining £300 is proportioned £75 retained and £275 Refunded. In accordance with 7.2 above, if in the case a refund is requested at a date after the agreement expiry has already passed (generally 120 days maximum from signing unless agreed otherwise in writing) then all remaining sessions will become null and void with no opportunity for usage, extension or refund regardless of circumstance.
