Registering with us
To subscribe for any Service, you must first register to set up an account with us by completing the account registration form available on the Site. You are required to create a personal account and where you are authorised on behalf of the company or organisation for whom you work you must create an account for your company or organisation.You only need to register once.
To register, you must provide us with accurate, complete and up-to-date contact information, including name, postal address, telephone number and email address. You are responsible for the information you provide to us. You must update your account information online in the event of any changes to this information.
If you are registering as an organisation, rather than in your personal individual capacity, you must have the necessary authority, power and right fully to bind the legal entity or organisation on whose behalf you wish to be granted access to the Service(s) ordered. If you are not authorised to bind that legal entity or organisation, you must not attempt to register. By registering, you represent and warrant to us that you are duly authorised.
Username and password
Upon registration for an account with us, you will be asked to create a username and password. You must keep your username and password confidential at all times and use it only to access and use your account and not for any other purpose. You are the only authorised user of your account (unless expressly specified otherwise in the relevant subscription plan description on the Site) and, accordingly, you must not disclose your username and/or password to anyone else. You should contact us immediately upon discovering any unauthorised use of your account or error in the operation of your username and/or password (see Contacting us). Any breach of these terms and/or any use of your account by anyone to whom you disclose your username and/or password will be treated as if the breach or use had been carried out by you, and will not relieve you of your obligations to us.
The Services are described on the Site.
The subscription gives you access to the specific Service plan you have selected for the period of time selected by you from amongst the options available on the Site. It is important to note that, at the end of this subscription period, your subscription will automatically renew (unless we are no longer offering the Service, in which case we will notify you) for an equivalent period (and continue to do so), unless you have already cancelled your subscription (see Subscription cancellation).
Subscription fee and payment
The subscription fees for Services for the relevant subscription period are as quoted on the Site from time to time. Subscription fees exclude VAT which will be added at checkout prior to payment. Subscription fees may be changed by us, but will not be changed where you have pre-paid for a specific subscription period.Any change in subscription fees will be notified to you by us in advance, if you do not agree to the change, you can cancel your subscription.
Payment for all subscriptions must be made by credit or debit card. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards.
You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.
If your subscription to a Service renews (see Our Services), fees for each renewal period (at the same level as the preceding subscription period, unless the fees have increased, in which case we will notify you beforehand) will automatically be charged to your account, in advance, on the renewal date (or shortly before or after), unless you have already cancelled your subscription (see Subscription cancellation).
You are responsible for all fees to your account. If you have questions regarding fees to your account, you should contact us (see Contacting us).
If you do not pay us the fees you owe us on time (including if any correct charge to your credit or debit card is not authorised), we may suspend or terminate your access to any Service (and we reserve the right to pursue any available legal remedy to collect the amount owed by you). However, fees will continue to be incurred until the account is closed.
Changes to the Service, fees and terms
As it is our policy continually to review and update our Service offerings, we reserve the right to make changes to any Service, fees and/or to these terms from time to time, provided that we will not, unless you agree, make any changes in respect of any Service you have already paid for that would significantly reduce the type or level of service you receive (except if we need to do so for security, legal or regulatory reasons) and/or increase the fees you are obliged to pay. We will always give you as much notice as we reasonably can of such significant changes on the understanding that you have the option of accepting them or cancelling your Service subscription without penalty, in which case, you should notify us that you wish to cancel your subscription (see Subscription cancellation). If you do not cancel your subscription before the date on which the changes come into effect (which we will notify to you), this will mean that you have accepted them.
You normally have the right to cancel a contract within 14 days after the date you subscribe for the services. However, you acknowledge that we start provision of the Service immediately following payment of your subscription fees (which, by making payment, you request us to do) and that you will have no right to change your mind and cancel under the Consumer Contracts Regulations.
If you do not wish your subscription to a Service to renew automatically at the end of the then-current subscription period you must notify us (see Contacting us) or alter the subscription renewal settings of your account through the Site in advance of renewal. If you do not do this, fees may continue to be payable until the end of the following subscription renewal period. It is your responsibility to notify us in advance of renewal.
You can cancel your subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period but you shall not be entitled to a refund, unless:
- the Service to which you are subscribed ceases to be available or becomes degraded so as to materially and adversely affect that Service; or
- we make changes, in the circumstances described under Changes to the Service, charges and terms, to which you do not agree.
In any of these cases, you should notify us (see Contacting us) that you wish to cancel your subscription.
