Bitcoin Beats Ltd complies with Consumer Contracts Regulations for online courses and services.
You can claim a refund within 21 days of receiving your product or service if you want to cancel.
Did you book the course for work or personal interest?
As long as you’re a consumer, the Consumer Contracts Regulations give you the right to cancel a contract entered at a distance - for example, when you purchase a course online or over the phone.
The definition of ‘consumer’ in the Consumer Contracts Regulations is an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside that individual’s trade, business, craft or profession.
If you’re booking a course for professional development purposes and this is close to what you do professionally already, you may not be seen as a consumer.
Here are some examples where you are unlikely to be regarded as a consumer when you book your course:
You work as a digital marketer and have booked an online course on email marketing to improve your skills
You work as a nutritionist and have booked a conference and day course on food and mental wellbeing so you can move into this area of your profession
You work as a journalist and have booked a three-day course on sports journalism to cater for a gap in your reporting knowledge
If you’re booking a course out of personal interest (which could also include you taking a course because you’re considering a career change), you will be seen as a consumer.
Here are some examples where you will be seen as a consumer booking a course:
You work as an HR administrator and have booked a two-day course on cake decorating because you enjoy it and sometimes make occasion cakes for friends and family
You work as a lawyer and have booked an evening course on fiction writing to have fun and meet new people
You work as a GP and have booked an online course to learn beginner’s French for your holiday later this year
This guide caters for consumers wishing to cancel a course they booked at a distance.
I’ve changed my mind about the course
As a consumer, if you change your mind about a course you purchased online or at a distance, you have 21 days from entering into a service contract in which you can cancel it.
This right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations applies regardless of whether the course will be taken online or in person.
The course provider shouldn’t start providing the service before the 21-day cancellation period has ended, unless you’ve requested this, booked on last minute, or the online course is already open for you to start.
If your course starts within the 21-day period
In this instance you will still have the right to cancel, but you must pay for the value of the service that was provided to you up to the point you cancel.
For example, if you buy an online course and then change your mind within the 21-day time period, you should be refunded a proportionate sum but could be charged for any admin or materials costs and the amount of teaching time you used.
If the course is provided in full within 21 days
The right to cancel will be lost during the cancellation period if the service is provided in full before the 21 days elapses.
Check the terms & conditions
The minimum cancellation period that consumers must be given is 14 days, but some course providers may choose to exceed this.
You should always check the terms and conditions in case you have longer to change your mind.
When you purchase a product or service from this site, the fulfillment process will be as follows.
The account that purchased a product or service will be given access to week 1/2 sections of the course and will be given access to the rest of the course upon request or weekly until the entire course is accessible.
The account that purchased the indicator subscription will be messaged directly via Email, Tradingview.com or Telegram. Once the consumer provides their Tradingview name, their account on Tradingview will be given invite-only access to the indicator for the subscription-specified amount of time.
