3.2 It is your responsibility to make any and all arrangements necessary in order to access Our Site.
3.3 Access to Our Site is provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis. We may alter, suspend or discontinue Our Site (or any part of it) at any time and without notice. We will not be liable to you in any way if Our Site (or any part of it) is unavailable at any time and for any period.
- Business Customers and Consumers
4.1 This Licence Agreement applies to educational providers only, coaching companies, and individuals who act as professional coaches. They do not apply to individual consumers purchasing Paid Content for personal use (that is, not in connection with, or for use in, their trade, business, craft, or profession).
4.2 This Licence Agreement constitutes 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.
- Subscriptions, Paid Content, Pricing and Availability
5.1 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. We will inform you of any change in price at least three months before the change is due to take effect. If you do not agree to such a change, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 11.1.
5.2 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. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Paid Content, suitable information will be provided to you.
5.3 In some cases, as described in the relevant content descriptions, We may also make more significant changes to the Paid Content. If We do so, We will inform you at least one month’s notice before the changes are due to take effect. If you do not agree to the changes, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 11.1.
5.4 Where any updates are made to Paid Content, 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.
5.5 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 5.9 regarding VAT, however).
5.6 All prices are checked by Us before We accept your order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your order, We will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your order. If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the Subscription at the correct price or to cancel your order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing your order in this case until you respond. If We do not receive a response from you within 28 days, We will treat your order as cancelled and notify you of this in writing.
5.7 If We discover an error in the price or description of your Subscription after your order is processed, We will inform you immediately and make all reasonable efforts to correct the error. You may, however, have the right to cancel the Contract if this happens. If We inform you of such an error and you do wish to cancel the Contract, please refer to sub-Clause 11.4.
5.8 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.
5.9 Prices on Our Site are shown exclusive of VAT. If the VAT rate changes between your order being placed and Us taking payment, the amount of VAT payable will be automatically adjusted when taking payment.
- Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
6.1 Our Site will guide you through the process of purchasing a Subscription. Before completing your purchase, you will be given the opportunity to review your order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully before submitting it.
6.2 If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please Contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give Us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your order and treat the Contract as being at an end. We will not be responsible for any delay in the availability of Paid Content that results from you providing incorrect or incomplete information.
6.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order to purchase a Subscription constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your order does not mean that We have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Us sending you a Subscription Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you a Subscription Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
6.4 Subscription Confirmations shall contain an acknowledgement of your order. They shall be followed by an invoice containing your purchase order number.
6.5 In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your order for any reason, We will explain why in writing. No payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment, any such sums will be refunded to you.
6.6 Any refunds due under this Clause 6 will be issued to you as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of the day on which the event triggering the refund occurs.
6.7 Refunds under Clause 6 will be made using the same payment method that you used when purchasing your Subscription.
7.1 You will be invoiced upon activation. Payment is required within 15 days of this.
7.2 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).
7.3 We accept the following methods of payment:
7.3.2 Debit card; and
7.3.3 Credit card.
7.4 If you do not make any payment due to Us on time, We will suspend your access to the Paid Content. For more information, please refer to sub-Clause 8.4. If you do not make payment within 14 days of Our reminder, We may cancel the Contract. Any outstanding sums due to Us will remain due and payable.
7.5 If you believe that We have charged you an incorrect amount, please Contact Us as soon as reasonably possible to let Us know. You will not be charged for Paid Content while availability is suspended.
- Provision of Paid Content
8.1 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), or until the Contract is otherwise ended.
8.2 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:
8.2.1 To fix technical problems or to make necessary minor technical changes, as described above in sub-Clause 5.2;
8.2.2 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
8.2.3 To make more significant changes to the Paid Content, as described above in sub-Clause 5.3.
8.3 If We need to suspend the availability of the Paid Content for any of the reasons set out in sub-Clause 8.2, We will inform you in advance of the suspension and explain why it is necessary (unless We need to suspend availability for urgent or emergency reasons such as a dangerous problem with the Paid Content, in which case We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible after suspension).
8.4 We may suspend the provision of the Paid Content if We do not receive payment on time from you. We will inform you of the non-payment on the due date, however, if you do not make payment within 14 days of Our notice, We may suspend the provision of the Paid Content until We have received all outstanding sums due from you. If We do suspend the provision of the Paid Content, We will inform you of the suspension. You will not be charged for any Paid Content while provision is suspended.
9.1 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 and/or educational 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).
9.2 The licence granted to you under sub-Clause 9.1 is subject to the following usage restrictions and/or permissions:
9.2.1 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 except as permitted under the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 (Chapter 3 ‘Acts Permitted in relation to Copyright Works’), or as is necessary for using the Paid Content for educational purposes.
9.2.2 When your subscription expires for any reason, you must destroy all materials downloaded from, or based upon, the Paid Content.
