12 | RIGHT TO CANCEL OR TERMINATE – SPECIAL ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO THIS CLAUSE
Consumer rights to cancel under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (the “2013 Regulations”)
12.1 Under the 2013 Regulations, consumers have the right to cancel the Contract within 14 days of the Commencement Date (“Cancellation Period”) without giving any reason. This is known as the right to change your mind. Please note the introductory paragraphs contained within these Terms, which set out the circumstances in which you may or may not be a consumer. For the avoidance of doubt, where you are purchasing the Membership Services for use in your business or in a professional capacity, it is highly likely that you will not have rights to change your mind under the 2013 Regulations.
12.2 | Where you are a consumer, the Cancellation Period will expire after 14 days after the day on which we send you your Order Confirmation pursuant to clause 3.2 and it is sufficient for you to send your communication (in accordance with clause 11.7) concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the Cancellation Period has expired.
12.3 | If you cancel the Contract in your capacity as a consumer during the Cancellation Period, we will reimburse to you the price you paid for the Development Product, however we may make a deduction from the reimbursement for the value of any use you have made of the Development Product during that period. Such deduction shall be calculated by
comparing your use of the Development Product during that period with the use by other customers generally and what might be expected to be used over the usual course of the Contract but for your cancellation. For example, you may be subject to a significant deduction in the event that you used a significant proportion of the Membership Services within the Cancellation Period such that we reasonably consider that there has been unfair usage.
12.4 | For the avoidance of doubt, when you exercise your rights to cancel the Contract under this clause 11, you shall not be entitled to, and we shall not issue you with a VAT receipt for any Membership Services provided under this Contract receipt pursuant to clause 6.5 above. Furthermore, if, following your cancellation, it transpires that you are a business (and thus had no right under the 2013 Regulations to cancel), we reserve the right to charge the full price for the Initial Subscription Period or Renewal Period (as the case may be).
12.5 | We will make the reimbursement:
12.5.1 | without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel the Contract or where there is no payment run during that period (or the remainder of that period following the processing of the refund) and where making a dedicated payment would cause unreasonable business disruption having regard to the nature of the refund, on the date of the following payment run; and
12.5.2 | using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
Early termination by you
12.6 | Without affecting any other right or remedy available to you, you may have a legal right to end the Contract because of something we have done or are going to do. These reasons include:
12.6.1| we have told you about an upcoming change to the Development Product or these Terms (other than pursuant to clauses 4.1 or 4.2) to which you do not agree;
12.6.2 | there is a risk that our ability to provide the Development Product may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
12.6.3 | we have suspended supply of the Development Product for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 14 days.
12.7 | Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 11.1), you can still end the Contract before the end of the Initial Subscription Period (or applicable Renewal Period) but you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid. If you want to end the Contract where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind in accordance with clause 11.1, just contact us (in accordance with clause 11.7) to let us know and the Contract will end immediately.
How to end the Contract with us
12.8 | To end the Contract with us, please let us know by doing one of the following:
12.8.1 | by sending an email to us at email@example.com;

12.9 | If you are a business, any notification must be in writing confirming your name, address, email address you used to sign up to the Development Product, and any order or reference number.

13.1.4 | do not, within a reasonable time, allow us access to information required to deliver the Development Product to you.
13.2 | If we end the Contract in the situations set out in clause 12.1 we will refund any money you have paid in advance for Development Product we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the contract.
13.3 | Notwithstanding clause 12.1, we may terminate the Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to you. If we choose to end the Contract under this clause 12.3, we will refund you any money or fees you have paid in advance for the Development Product after the termination date.

18 EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
18.1 | We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms that is caused by, or, contributed to in any material way, an event outside our control nor where such an event outside makes performance with the Contract onerous to a degree not reasonably in the contemplation of the parties at the time of entering the Contract. An event outside our control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, changes in the law or the issuance of governmental orders, advise, recommendations or similar edicts, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.

19 | OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
19.1 | We may transfer our rights and obligations under the Contract to another organisation but this will not affect your rights under the Contract. We will always notify you by posting on our Website if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer does not affect your rights under the Contract.
19.2 | You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.
19.3 | Subject to clauses 18.1 and 18.2 no person shall have any rights to enforce any terms of the Contract other than you and us.
19.4 | Each of the clauses of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, then the affected clause(s) shall be interpreted with such minimum modification as is necessary to make it lawful or enforceable and the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
19.5 | If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under the Contract, or if we do not enforce our rights against
you, or if we delay in doing so, we can still enforce it later. Any delay will not mean that we have waived our rights in any way or that you no longer have to comply with your obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you, but continue to provide the Development Products, we can still require you to make a payment at a later date.
19.6 | Alternative dispute resolution (if you are a consumer). Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are a consumer and are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to CEDR via their website at www.cedr.com. You will not be charged for making a complaint and if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can still bring legal proceedings.
19.7 | Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings depends if you are a business or consumer.
19.7.1 | If you are a consumer, these terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Development Products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Development Products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Development Products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
19.8 | If you are a business, any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
