9.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of Training where you have given us express consent to provide services during the cancellation period and the service has been performed (i.e. Training has been provided).
9.3 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Booking Confirmation (the date on which we e-mail you to confirm our acceptance of your order), which is when the Contract between us is formed.
