ACCESS


VocalKit is proud to be accessible and open to all young people who wish to participate in the arts. For singers who require additional assistance in order to access VocalKit performance, including but not limited to those who may consider themselves disabled for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010, a carer must be present at all times whose job it is to care for and look after the relevant young person. A carer (not to the expense of VocalKit) must be available for any activity that takes place ‘off site’. We consider ‘off site’ to be any place where activity takes place that is outside of the rehearsal venue, including but not limited to performances, social events and trips. VocalKit strives to ensure that it offers a fair experience to all of its subscribers, but can not be held responsible should a VocalKit performance or event not be fully accessible. The reason a performance or event may not be fully accessible may be due to the location of the performance (outdoor events), grade listed buildings (theatres or museums without lifts) or any other factor. In the interests of safety, VocalKit have the final say in any decision as to whether any singer may perform. Should you have any questions about accessibility with VocalKit, please get in touch.


REFUND POLICY

  • Subscribers are able to self-terminate their account at any time via the VocalKit dashboard.
  • Refunds can’t be given should a school decide to cancel their subscription after a payment has been made.

FORCE MAJEURE

In the event of an unplanned local, national or worldwide crisis, such as a pandemic, epidemic or natural disaster, VocalKit reserves the right to close with immediate effect. Any crisis will be dealt with on a case by case basis and the VocalKit directors decision will be final. Subscribers always have the ability to immediately cancel their subscription by logging into their account via the VocalKit dashboard, which will stop any future payments and cease their engagement fully with VocalKit upon their next bill date. Alternative content or engagement may be delivered should a subscription offering continue, which could temporarily replace any face to face sessions that are unable to run, for whatever reason. Refunds will not be available for previous payments made and new fees may be considered to reflect the service offered. Terms and conditions will also be able to be fairly altered without notice by VocalKit HQ in this instance, to protect Sound Pop Academy Limited as a business and any of our amazing subscribers and their schools.
