6.2 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Product 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.

6.3 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 (and clause 9.2 will apply) 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.

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.

7. Your rights to end the contract

7.1 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:

(a)  If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the Product replaced or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11 if you are a consumer and clause 12 if you are a business;

(b)  If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 7.2; and

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 Product which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

(e)  you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

7.3 Exercising your right to change your mind if you are a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).

These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.

7.4 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 the Products after you have started to download or stream these.

7.5 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. If you have bought digital content for download or streaming, 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.

13.1 If you are a business customer we warrant that on delivery any Products shall:

(a) conform in all material respects with their description; and

(b) be of satisfactory quality (within the meaning of the Sale of Goods Act 1979).

13.2 Subject to clause 12.3, if:

(a) you give us notice in writing within a reasonable time of discovery that a Product does not comply with clause 12.1; and

(b) we are given a reasonable opportunity of examining such Product;

14. we shall, at our option, repair or replace the defective Product, or refund the price of the defective Product in full.

14.1 We will not be liable for a Product's failure to comply with clause 12.1 if:

(a) you make any further use of such Product after giving a notice in accordance with clause 12.2(a);

(b) the defect arises because you failed to follow our oral or written instructions as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the Product or (if there are none) good trade practice;

14.3 These terms shall apply to any repaired or replacement Products supplied by us under clause 12.2.

15. Price and payment

15.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the Product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you order. 

15.2 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.

15.3 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. 

15.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. Acceptable payment methods are listed on the order page of our Website. For digital content, you must pay for the Product before you download it.

15.5 Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

15.6 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount. 

15.7 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

16. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a consumer

16.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

16.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products as summarised at clause 11.1; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

16.3 When we are liable for damage caused by defective digital content. If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.

16.4 We are not liable for business losses. If you are a consumer we only supply the Product for to you for domestic and private use. If you use the Product for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose our liability to you will be limited as set out in clause 15.

17. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you if you are a business

17.1 Nothing in these terms shall limit or exclude our liability for:

(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors (as applicable);

(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or

(c) any matter in respect of which it would be unlawful for us to exclude or restrict liability.

17.2 Except to the extent expressly stated in clause 12.1 all terms implied by sections 13 to 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and sections 3 to 5 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are excluded.

19. Other important terms

19.1 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.

19.2 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.

19.3 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.

19.4 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.

19.5 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 Product, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

19.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Product in the English and Welsh courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Product in either the Scottish or the English and Welsh courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Product in either the Northern Irish or the English and Welsh courts.

19.7 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a business. If you are a business, any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with a contract between us or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales and the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
