How to contact us. To contact us, please email us at [email protected]
What these terms cover. These are the terms and conditions on which we supply products to you, whether these are services or digital content (“products”).
By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that we must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract between you and us is made. This key information is set out in these terms and on the sales page on our website for the product you are purchasing. The key information we give you by law forms part of this contract as though it is set out in full here.
If we have to change any key information once a legally binding contract between you and us is made, we can only do this if you agree to it.
Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think that there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss prior to making your purchase.
When buying any products from us, you also agree to be legally bound by:
- our Website Terms and Conditions and any documents referred to in them;
All of the above documents form part of the contract between us as though set out in full here.
Are you a business customer or a consumer? In some areas you will have different rights under these terms depending on whether you are a business or consumer. You are a consumer if:
- You are an individual.
- You are buying products from us wholly or mainly for your personal use (not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession).
If you are a business customer this is our entire agreement with you. If you are a business customer these terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation based on any statement in these terms.
OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
How to make an order from us. Below, we set out how a legally binding contract between you and us is made.
You place an order with us by adding the product to a shopping cart. Once you are ready to purchase, you will enter your name, email address and payment details. To purchase the product, you must click the “Complete my purchase” button. When you click the “Complete my purchase” button, you understand and agree that you will be charged for the product via the payment details you have provided.
Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it. Before you place your order you must check that the hardware and software requirements of your computer or device mean that you can download or access the product.
How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product, or we will immediately refund you if your payment has been processed. This might be because:
- of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for;
- we have identified an error in the price or description of the product;
- we are unable to meet a delivery deadline we have specified;
- the product is unavailable;
- we cannot authorise your payment;
- you are not allowed to buy the product from us; or
- we are not allowed to sell the product to you.
Our products are not for people under the age of 18 years. If you are under the age of 18 years, you may not buy products from us.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order on our website. We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order. The price of the product is in Pounds Sterling (£)(GBP), and includes Value Added Tax at the applicable rate.
Authority to take recurring payments. Where you purchase products from us that incur ongoing payments, you agree to being charged any such recurring fee, which will be automatically deducted from your chosen credit card, debit card or bank account. This ongoing fee will continue to be deducted, without further consent from you or notice from us, until such time as you or we terminate these terms.
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
OUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO THE PRODUCTS
Changes to the products. We may change the product:
- to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
- to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat. These changes will not affect your use of the product;
- to change the platform on which the product, or any element of the product, is provided, hosted, distributed or otherwise made available;
- to add or remove particular providers of the product, or any element of the product.
Updates to digital content. We may update or require you to update digital content, provided that the digital content shall always match the description of it that we provided to you before you bought it.
Our intellectual property rights in relation to the products. We are the owners or licensees of all intellectual property rights in the website, and the products you purchase, including any databases that hold relevant information about the website or its products. These rights are protected by copyright or trade mark registration and you may only use the products, or any part of them, in accordance with these terms.
Your licence to use the products. Upon payment of the price for any of our products we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable licence to use the products for your own personal, non-commercial use. You may not sub-licence or otherwise give access to this licence to anyone, whether for payment, exchange or for free.
Restrictions on your use of the products. You must not redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, rent, exchange, commercially exploit, broadcast, modify, adapt, copy, edit, sub-licence, share, lend, or transfer any products, or part of the products, that you purchase through this website or from us unless agreed with us in writing. To do so would be in breach of our intellectual property rights, and we reserve our rights to take legal action if this occurs.
Our rights in relation to your interactions. In the course of your interaction or engagement with the product, we may record or retain your contributions. You agree to our use of your image, voice and written contributions as we see fit and in accordance with these terms. You will not be entitled to any claim for payment, nor any imposition of conditions or restrictions for use, and we will not require any further consent from you to use such contributions.
PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
If the products are ongoing services or a subscription to receive services or digital content. We will supply the services or digital content to you until either the services are completed or the subscription expires (if applicable) or you end the contract as described in below or we end the contract by written notice to you as also described below.
We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received. Such events include but are not limited to acts of God, fire, flood, drought, earthquake, windstorm or other natural disaster, war, armed conflict, invasion, acts of terrorism, epidemic, pandemic, labour dispute, or interruption or failure of utility service.
What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information.
If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result.
We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
Reasons we may suspend the supply of products to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a product to:
- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
- make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you.
Your rights if we suspend the supply of products. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the product, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the product, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended.
You may contact us to end the contract for a product if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 14 days 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 the products 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 seven (7) days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the products 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 the products during the period for which they are suspended.
YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing, when you decide to end the contract and whether you are a consumer or business customer.
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
- we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to;
- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
- there is a risk that supply of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
- we have suspended supply of the products 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; or
- you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
We are constantly striving to enhance our products in order to better serve our customers. As a result, and in relation to sub-clause (a) above, the specific inclusions of any of our products may change over time as a result of developments in our business and improvements in our client offerings. While you may be entitled to end your contract with us as a result of such improvements, you will not be entitled to a refund of any monies paid for the products you have received, accessed or otherwise engaged with as a result of your purchase.
Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). If you are a consumer then for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
When consumers do not have a right to change their minds. Your right as a consumer to change your mind does not apply in respect of:
- digital products after you have started to download or stream these;
- services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
How long do consumers have to change their minds? If you are a consumer how long you have to change your mind depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
- Have you bought services? If so, you have 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, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
- Have you bought digital content for download or streaming? If so, you have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order, or, if earlier, until you start downloading or streaming. If we delivered the digital content to you immediately, and you agreed to this when ordering, you will not have a right to change your mind.

HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.
You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products or these terms in the English courts.
