relevant laws and regulatory requirements and our business practices and procedures, including the
technologies and payment methods we use.

reasonable advance notice of the changes. We may ask you to accept our revised Terms the next time you
log onto your membership account and will also update the Terms on our Website.
We may make amendments to the Membership Services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory
requirements and to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a
security threat. These changes will not affect your use of the product. We will also be entitled to make
more substantial changes to the Membership Services, but we will provide you with at least thirty (30) days’
notice of these changes before they come in to effect.

6. Our Website & Membership Services
We do not guarantee that our Website will be available 24/7 or that it will be free from interruptions. We do
not therefore guarantee that Membership Services will be available for viewing on the Website continuously
or provided free of faults.
In the unlikely event that there is any defect or error with a Membership Service you have signed up to:
● contact us and tell us as soon as reasonably possible;
● give us a reasonable opportunity to repair or fix any defect (in any event not less than 14 days);
● we will use every reasonable effort to repair or fix the defect as soon as reasonably practicable.
We may suspend the provision of Membership Services to you to:
● deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
● update our services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
● make changes to the services as notified by us to you.
We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of your Membership Service, unless
the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend your Membership Service more than 14
days in any month we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for your Membership Service while it is
suspended. You may contact us to end the contract for your Membership Service if we suspend it, or tell
you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 1 month and we will refund any sums
you have paid in advance for the product in respect of the period after you end the contract.
We may also suspend supply of your Membership Service if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the
products when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you
that payment is due, we may suspend supply of your Membership Service until you have paid us the
outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products. We will
not charge you for your Membership Service during the period for which it is suspended. As well as
suspending your Membership Service we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments.
7. “Cooling Off”
You have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept
your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the
period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services at your request (using the form we
provide), you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your
mind. If you access our website using your log-in details then you will no longer have a right to
cancel the contract.
To cancel Membership Services using your cooling off rights, you just need to let us know that you have
decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete and return the cancellation form which can be
found on our Website.
You can also e-mail us at [email protected] or contact our customer services team

Spinningfields, Manchester, England M3 3EB.
We will refund you the price you paid for the products within 14 days of your telling us you have changed
your mind, by the method you used for making payment to us. However, we may deduct from any refund
an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it was supplied, ending with the time when
you told us you had changed your mind. The amount will be in proportion to what has been supplied, in
comparison with the full coverage of the contract.

result of our breach of these Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage

instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is

sign up and at least 30 days prior to any renewal of the contract under clause 9.The price for any renewal
