We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched if we are supplying you with physical goods and/or with instructions of how to download the Products which you have purchased (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. 
    5. If we are unable to supply you with a Product for any reason we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

    3. We may revise these Terms as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect the following circumstances:
      • changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and 
      • updates or other improvements to the Products.
    4. If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Products or just the Products you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant Products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
  7. DELIVERY
    1. If your order includes physical products we will contact you with an estimated delivery date. Occasionally our delivery to you may be affected by an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 12 (“Events Outside Our Control”) for our responsibilities when this happens. 
    2. Delivery of any physical products which are part of an order shall be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us and risk in any such physical products will pass to you on delivery. 
    3. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we may leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the Products from a local depot.
    4. If you do not collect the Products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery or collect them from a delivery depot we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the Contract in respect of those Products in which case we may deduct reasonable compensation from any monies refunded to you for the net costs we will incur as a result.
  8. INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY
    1. If you order Products from our site and require delivery to any international delivery destinations offered through our site, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount. 
    2. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
    3. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined or in which they are used. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
  9. PRICE OF PRODUCTS AND DELIVERY CHARGES
    1. The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However please see clause 9.5 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you have ordered.
    2. Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.
    3. The price of a Product excludes VAT (unless otherwise indicated) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
    4. The price of a Product does not include any applicable delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
    5. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our site may be incorrectly priced. If the Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. However, if we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may cancel supply of the Product and refund you any sums you have paid.
  10. HOW TO PAY
    1. You can pay for Products using certain debit or credit cards as indicated on our site, or by bank transfer. Please note that you are responsible for paying any bank transfer, currency exchange, or other payment charges.
    2. Payment for Products and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not dispatch any goods or permit you to download any software or digital content until we have received your payment in full.
    3. Certain Products are available on a monthly or other subscription basis. Such Products and the relevant subscription period will be brought to your attention during the checkout process, and the following terms shall apply to that purchase:
      • (a) the price of each such Product shall be indicated during the checkout process, and shall comprise: (i) an initial licence and setup fee; (ii) a monthly licence fee; and (iii) an initial minimum period;
      • (b) by proceeding with the purchase of a subscription Product, you agree to pay us the applicable initial licence and setup fee at the time of your purchase, and thereafter the applicable monthly licence fee in advance of each subsequent calendar month throughout the applicable initial minimum period, and for each month thereafter unless or until either we or you provide the other not less than one month’s written notice that they do not wish the subscription to renew;
      • (c) at the time of your purchase, you shall supply us with valid, up-to-date and complete credit or debit card details or such other approved purchase order information acceptable to us and any other relevant valid, up-to-date and complete contact and billing details; and
      • (d) you hereby authorise us to bill such credit or debit card or other payment method at the time of your purchase, and on or around the start of every subsequent calendar month in respect of which payment is due, for the subscription fees payable in respect of that Product for that month.
    4. If we have not received payment on the due date, and without prejudice to any other rights and remedies we may have:
      • (a) we may, without liability to you, remotely disable your access to all or part of the Products to which that payment relates and we shall be under no obligation to provide such access, or any support or maintenance which we might otherwise be obliged to offer in connection with such Products, while the sums concerned remain unpaid; and
      • (b) interest shall accrue on a daily basis on such due amounts at an annual rate equal to 8% over the then current base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time, commencing on the due date and continuing until fully paid, whether before or after judgment.
    5. Subscription Products referred to in clause 10.3 above require occasional access to the Internet in order to confirm renewal of your licence to use those Products (this means that the relevant device will need to connect to the Internet at least once for a reasonable period of time and without restrictions on the extent of Internet access within the period between our receiving your payment, and the beginning of the following month, which is typically a period of 5 days). By purchasing such Products, you acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable for loss of functionality or access to the Products to the extent that it arises from your failure to ensure adequate connectivity.
    6. We shall be entitled to increase the price of any of the Products referred to in clause 10.3 above at any time after the expiry of the initial minimum period referred to in clause 10.3(iii) upon 30 days’ notice to you.

      • (a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
      • (b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or

    5. Except as expressly stated in these Terms, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Products. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Products are suitable for your purposes.

      • (b) our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control.

    4. You may cancel a Contract affected by an Event Outside Our Control which has continued for more than 60 days. To cancel please contact us.

    5. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
