9.7 Where specified on the website (but not in any other case), we offer a 30 day money-back guarantee in respect of course fees. In order to exercise your rights under any such guarantee, you must send to us - and we must receive - written notification of the guarantee claim within the period of 30 days following your purchase. To avoid abuse, you may only take advantage of our guarantee on one occasion, and you will not be entitled to take advantage of the guarantee if you have breached any provision of these terms and conditions.

and for the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back for the purposes of this Section 10.5.
