  2. Entire Agreement

These Terms of Sale constitute the entire agreement between Us and you with respect to your purchase of Subscriptions and Paid Content from Us.  You acknowledge that you have not relied upon any statement, representation, warranty, assurance, or promise made by or on behalf of Us that is not set out in these Terms of Sale and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based upon any statement herein.

  1. Subscriptions, Paid Content, Pricing and Availability
    • We may from time to time change Our prices. Changes in price will not affect any Subscription that you have already purchased but will apply to any subsequent renewal or new Subscription.
    • Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Paid Content, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address technical or security issues. These changes will not alter the main characteristics of the Paid Content and should not normally affect your use of that Paid Content.
    • Where any updates are made to Paid Content, that Paid Content will continue to match Our description of it as provided to you before you purchased your Subscription to access the Paid Content. Please note that this does not prevent Us from enhancing the Paid Content, thereby going beyond the original description.
    • We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online.
    • If the price of a Subscription that you have ordered changes between your order being placed and Us processing that order and taking payment, you will be charged the price shown on Our Site at the time of placing your order. Subsequent Subscriptions (and renewals) will be charged at the new price.
  1. Payment
    • Payment for Subscriptions must always be made in advance.
    • Payments due must be made in full, without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction, or withholding (except where any deduction or withholding of tax is required by law).
    • If you do not make any payment due to Us on time, We will suspend your access to the Paid Content.
  1. Provision of Paid Content
    • Paid Content appropriate to your Subscription will be available to you immediately when We send you a Subscription Confirmation and will continue to be available for the duration of your Subscription (including any renewals).
    • In some limited circumstances, We may need to suspend the provision of Paid Content (in full or in part) for one or more of the following reasons:
      • To fix technical problems or to make necessary minor technical changes, as described above in sub-Clause 5.2;
      • To update the Paid Content to comply with relevant changes in the law or other regulatory requirements, as described above in sub-Clause 5.2; or
      • To make more significant changes to the Paid Content, as described above in sub-Clause 5.3.
  1. Licence
    • When you purchase a Subscription to access Paid Content, We will grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable licence to access and use the relevant Paid Content for commercial purposes. The licence granted to you does not give you any rights in Our Paid Content (including any material that We may licence from third parties).
    • You may not copy, rent, sell, publish, republish, share, broadcast or otherwise transmit the Paid Content (or any part of it) or make it available to the public.
  2. Ending Your Subscription
    • You may cancel your Subscription at any time. We cannot offer any refunds and you will continue to have access to the Paid Content for the remainder of your current Subscription (up until the renewal or expiry date, as applicable), whereupon this contract will end.
    • If you allow your Subscription to renew by mistake, please inform Us as soon as possible and do not attempt to access any Paid Content. Provided you have not accessed any Paid Content since the renewal date of the Subscription We will be able to cancel the Subscription and issue a full refund.  If you have accessed any Paid Content once the Subscription has renewed, We will not be able to offer any refund and you will continue to have access to the Paid Content for the remainder of the Subscription (up until the renewal or expiry date, as applicable).
    • Refunds under this Clause 9 will be issued to you as soon as possible using the same payment method that you used when purchasing your Subscription, unless you specifically request that We make a refund using a different method.
  3. Our Liability
    • Subject to sub-Clause 10.3, We will not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit, loss of business, interruption to business, for any loss of business opportunity, or for any indirect or consequential loss arising out of or in connection with any contract between you and Us.
    • Subject to sub-Clause 10.3, Our total liability to you for all other losses arising out of or in connection with any contract between you and Us, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall be the most recent sum paid by you to Us under the contract in question for the Subscription in place at the time.
    • Nothing in these Terms of Sale seeks to limit or exclude Our liability for death or personal injury caused by Our negligence (including that of Our employees, agents or sub-contractors); for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or for any other matter in respect of which liability cannot be excluded or restricted by law.
  4. Events Outside of Our Control (Force Majeure)

We will not be liable for any failure or delay in performing Our obligations where that failure or delay results from any cause that is beyond Our reasonable control.  Such causes include, but are not limited to: power failure, internet service provider failure, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, riots and other civil unrest, fire, explosion, flood, storms, earthquakes, subsidence, acts of terrorism (threatened or actual), acts of war (declared, undeclared, threatened, actual or preparations for war), epidemic or other natural disaster, or any other event that is beyond Our reasonable control.
