As with any Membership system, it is possible for one of our Student Motorsport visitors to signup, and then possibly share their Username and password access credentials with someone else; or even post it online for the whole world to see. This is well known as 'Link Sharing' (or Username Sharing). It is not likely that we will see this on our website but we have to prevent against it and being attacked in this way. Measures and IP Restrictions have been put in place to protect Us and our valuable members such that a single Username, Access Link, and/or Entry Point is only valid for a certain number of unique IP addresses.

Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you begin utilising the service or upgrade and will cover the use of that service or upgrade for a monthly or annual subscription period as indicated. We regret that these fees are not refundable.
Unless you notify Student Motorsport at least 14 days before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel a service or upgrade, your subscription will automatically renewed and you authorise us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee (as well as any applicable taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you.
Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time by contacting Student Motorsport via the 'Contact Us' page where we will proceed to withdraw your account and profile content. We ask that in this instance you please state your reasons for wishing to terminate your account, this is so that we may remedy any negative situations, or reasons for termination and make the necessary improvements to our service accordingly.
Termination of Access
Student Motorsport may terminate your access to all or any part of the Website at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your Student Motorsport account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using the Website. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
Careers/Work Experience Packages & Consultancy
- Changes: Unless you notify Student Motorsport a minimum 21 days before the start date of your careers/work experience that you want to change your subscription it is unlikely that we will not be able to make the necessary changes in time. In this instance payment(s) for our service cannot be refunded. (unless we have been able to ‘fill’ the position you were taking and/or in extenuating circumstances which we are more than happy to discuss with you and make alternative arrangements for) If and when we receive such unexpected cancellations from you, in most cases we are unlikely to re-secure a placement due to the time constraints and nature of the industry.
- Feedback: If in the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with your work experience, you can contact us to advise your intentions to withdraw your booking or provide us with some feedback. We do however hope that this will not be necessary and that you fully enjoy and take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in this experience and our community.
- Payment: By booking with us you authorise us to collect the subscription fee/payment (as well as any applicable taxes/charges) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. (All payment information is protected by our website servers host and payment system hosts we use for example PayPal)
- Refunds: Applicable refunds will be made to you within 14 days of request via the same means of payment you made to us, unless you specify otherwise. They will also be made per invoice to you rather than one ‘lump sum’ in the case of multiple bookings. Refunds will also be minus any booking fees or charges made to us via our payment gateways for example PayPal.
- Work Experience Duration: We take every effort to ensure you are provided with the stated duration of hours or days during your work experience. When undertaking work experience, on occasion ‘hours or days’ can be affected or may fall short or fluctuate slightly due to 'unforeseen circumstances' such as a racing incident, (if working at a race event) or a differing situation which may arise at a motorsport facility or organisation. It is not unreasonable to expect ‘hours’ stated days to vary in motorsport, particularly if your experience booked is for attendance at a race or test type event. Duration(s) of work experience is/are estimated and often expected to fluctuate between 10-20% during any said event, or event be affected by the number of days. Time spent at a motorsport facility or organisation may also be stipulated as days rather than hours and are far easier to forecast. This is almost always out of our control, that said we will do everything we can to ensure you are supported and that your outstanding hours/days are substituted within reason and where possible.
- Travel, Accommodation & Your Expenses: Your expenses, leading up to and throughout the duration of your careers package and work experience with us will not be covered by Student Motorsport or the organisation you are working with unless you have been notified otherwise. Unless you are being covered by us or the organisation for expenses throughout the arrangement and duration of your careers package these costs will not be recoverable or refunded to you in the case of changes or cancellation(s) or of your package by you or the organisation you are working with unless stated otherwise.
- Cancellation: Subscriptions/bookings to our service can be cancelled at any time by contacting Student Motorsport via the 'Contact Us' page where we will discuss alternative arrangements or proceed to refund your work experience. We kindly ask that in this instance you please state your reasons for wishing to change or cancel your order, this is so that we may remedy any negative situations, or reasons for termination and make the necessary improvements to our service accordingly. Cancellations outside the 21 day period will incur a 20% booking fee of the cost of the package to cover our costs. Cancellations where we have worked to arrange and manage a work experience package will also be liable for a charge of 40% of the total cost of the package. This will be pro-rata basis for example: Careers package 3 booked includes 2 weekends experience. If we arrange and secure the first weekend experience, then the package is cancelled by you, you will be charged 40% of half of the value of the package. We will always work where possible to avoid this by securing the package with another candidate, so that you are not charged.
