Subscription Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions govern your use of one of Practice Pal's subscription services which are provided to you by Practice Pal using Stripe as a payment processor. Please read them carefully.

  1. What are Practice Pals subscription services?

    1. Student supervised practice subscriptions

      Students can subscribe to a regular supervised practice session with our trained practice supervisors. These sessions occur at a regular time and date each week booked in advance. Sessions frequency and times can be managed via the account holders dashboard. Practice supervisors help students focus during their practice time encouraging them to work through their teachers notes, but practice supervisors do not teach their instrument during these sessions.

    2. Teaching application subscriptions

      Teachers can subscribe to be able to use the safeguarded online teaching application. This gives tools including lesson scheduling and note taking alongside the ability to connect with their students for online lessons. Students can download and use the mobile app for the lesson for free.

  2. Registration

    1. You must ensure that the details provided by you during the registration process or at any time are correct and complete. You must only register your own credit or debit cards and bank accounts that you have the right to use.

    2. To avoid having an interrupted auto renew service, you must inform us immediately of any changes to the information that you provided when registering by updating your personal details.

    3. We reserve the right to decline your application for a subscription account.

  3. Password and Security

    1. During the registration process you will have created a username and password. You must keep this username and password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone. You will be responsible for all activities and orders that occur or are submitted under your username and password. If you know or suspect that someone else knows your username or password you should notify us by contacting Practice Pal via [email protected]

    2. If we have reason to believe that there is likely to be a breach of security or misuse of this auto renew service, we may require you to change your password or we may suspend your account at our discretion.

  4. When your agreement begins

    1. After you've registered and submitted all relevant personal information and your initial payment is accepted by Stripe, your agreement with Practice Pal runs from the date of this payment.

  5. Changes to your agreement with us

    1. We can change this agreement at any time by placing amended auto renew terms and conditions on the Practice Pal website. We will give you reasonable notice of any changes. We will notify you of material changes directly, for example by email to the address you provided when you registered for your subscription service. If you do not agree with the new agreement, you may stop using the service. If you continue to use your subscription service after the date on which the change comes into effect, your use of the subscription service indicates you agree to the changed agreement.

  6. Cancelling supervised practice sessions

    1. You may cancel mentor sessions at any time online through your account. If you cancel a mentor session with less than 48 hours' notice, you will be charged for that session since Practice Pal will already have paid the mentor for their services.
