Terms and Conditions

22. CPD (Continual Professional Development)

These CPD terms are in addition to the terms stated in clauses 1-20 above.

Our online interactive CPD tools and related services involve the receipt, storage, and use of your personal information, firstly, for your own access and use, secondly, for access and use by your employer if they are also registered to use our CPD services, and finally, for our use for internal administrative purposes only.  Our Privacy Policy specifically covers this receipt, storage, and use of your personal information.  You confirm you have read and accept those terms (both from an employee and employer perspective as may be applicable).

If you are an employee and your employer has also registered to use the CPD services, your employer will be able to book and pay for CPD events on your behalf, and your personal CPDR file will be updated as a result.  Your employer will also be able to view summary information concerning your “Booked” and “Attended” (and completed) CPD events and view your current CPD year points total at any time.  You provide your consent for this information to be accessed by your employer. Your employer will not be able to view your CPD Plan, Reflections or other information concerning you.  If you change employers, please email us to confirm the change and the timing of the change.

If you represent an employer organisation which is registered to use the CPD service, then you undertake on behalf of your organisation that it has all required authorities and consents to access and use the employee member’s information as part of our CPD services, and that it will only use that information for its own internal purposes in accordance with your rights and obligations as employer (which may include reporting that information to one or more third parties). You will indemnify us for any loss we suffer as a result of a breach of this clause by you as an employer.

Our online interactive CPD tools and related services also involve:

a) The supply of CPD content to you or your firm (whether electronically, online, or otherwise). You acknowledge and confirm that all intellectual property rights relating to such content remain owned at all times by us or our licensors as the case may be. Your purchase only involves the grant of a limited licence to view the content, for the agreed number of viewers, for your internal training purposes only.  You do not have the right to copy or reproduce the content for any reason, or to allow any other viewers to view that information.

b) Involve the recording of your annual CPD points accumulation as triggered by the requirements set by law and also as communicated by us. You are responsible for the verification (if required) of any points allegedly accumulated from CPD events organised by third parties not associated with The Law Association. Subject to this clause, in the absence of manifest error as proven by you, our records in this regard will be final.

c) Involve the payment of certain fees and charges by you as displayed by us. You agree to pay these fees and charges in accordance with these terms.

You will indemnify us for any loss we suffer as a result of your breach of this clause 22.
