    • We reserve the right to change pricing of our Paid Content from time to time. Changes in price made after you have purchased any Paid Content will not affect your access to any Paid Content that you have already purchased, but such changes will apply to any subsequent Paid Content purchased, even if the same item of Paid Content is purchased again.  All current prices for Paid Content will be clearly displayed on Our Site.
    • Changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Paid Content (or any portion of it), for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address technical or security issues.

    • All purchases of Paid Content attract VAT at the prevailing rate and a VAT invoice can be issued by Us upon purchase at your request.
  1. Contract
    • Our Site will guide you through the process of purchasing Paid Content. 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.
    • 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 you 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.
    • Your order to purchase Paid Content 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 Purchase Confirmation by email.  Only once We have sent you a Purchase Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
    • 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.

    • Paid Content will be available to you immediately when We send you a Purchase Confirmation and once purchased you may download the Paid Content and it may be viewed any number of times by you. Please note of course that Paid Content may eventually become out of date and hence we warrant only that Paid Content is up to date as at the date of purchase by you and not necessarily when that Paid Content is viewed by you.
    • 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;
      • To update the Paid Content to comply with relevant changes in the law or other regulatory requirements; or
      • To make more significant changes to the Paid Content.
    • If We need to suspend availability of the Paid Content for any of the reasons set out in sub-Clause 8.2, We will endeavour to make a note as to why upon Our Site together with an indication as to when said Paid Content may be available. We will also try to note revised Paid Content as ‘new’ or ‘updated’ or similar on Our Site.
  1. Licence
    • When you purchase Paid Content, We will grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable licence to access the relevant Paid Content.

Therefore, 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 or any use/misuse by you of, or your reliance upon, our Paid Content.
    • 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 total sum paid by you under the contract in question.
    • Nothing in these Terms and Conditions 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.
