To book a course with Lanterna Education a user must first complete the account registration form found on shopify.com. A user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address) in order to create an account. By creating an account you do not enter any agreement on signing up for a course. In order to sign up for a course, you must complete the entire booking process where we request financial information (like credit card number, expiration date) from you. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.
