- Your Rights to End the Contract
9.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether anything we have provided is defective, how we have performed our obligations and when you decide to end the contract:
9.1.1 If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 9.2;
9.1.2 If you have just changed your mind about a Service, see clause 9.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions;
9.1.3 In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 9.6.
9.2 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. We will refund you in full for any Services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
9.2.1 we have told you about an upcoming change to any Services or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 7.2);
9.2.2 we have told you about an error in the price or description of any Services you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
9.2.3 there is a risk that supply of the Services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
9.2.4 we have suspended supply of the Services for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 3 days; or
9.2.5 you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
9.3 Exercising your right to change your mind The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation & Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
For most services bought online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. These rights, under
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation & Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 are explained in more detail in these terms.
9.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of:
9.4.1 digital Services after you have started to download or stream these; and
9.4.2 Services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
9.5 How long do I have to change my mind? How long you have depends on what you have ordered and how it is delivered.
9.5.1 Have you bought Services? Our paid service runs on a monthly basis. If you have upgraded our app to the paid service, you can cancel this via the app store and a payment will not be taken for future months. Please note on cancellation of any paid services, your app will be downgraded after the paid month has finished.
9.5.2 Have you bought digital content for download or streaming (for example)? 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.
9.6 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 9.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation where you are terminating in relation to any Paid Service. A contract for digital content is completed when the item(s) you have ordered or requested is downloaded, uploaded and any payment due for such Service has been duly made. A contract for Services is completed when we have finished providing the Services and you have paid for them (in the case of Paid Services). If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for Services not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if you have not made an advance payment, charge you) reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

- Price and Payment
13.1 Where to find prices. Subject to clause 13.3, the price of anything you purchase (including VAT) will be the price indicated at the checkout in the App when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Service advised to you is correct. However please see clause 13.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Service you order.
13.2 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 Service, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Service in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
13.3 What happens if we get the price wrong? It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Service'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 Service'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. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of anything we have provided to you.

13.5 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 greater of the rate from time to time applicable to County Court judgment debts and 4% a year above the base lending rate of NatWest Bank from time to time. This interest will 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.
13.6 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.
- Our Responsibility for Loss or Damage Suffered By You
14.1 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. While we use all reasonable endeavours to provide the Services to you and provide those correctly, we cannot accept any liability as a result of you providing incorrect or insufficient information.
14.2 Data storage. While we use all reasonable endeavours to provide the Services to you and provide those correctly, we cannot guarantee that our storage of your data will be error-free. We therefore advise that you retain copies of all data that you have input into the App/Website and is stored by us.
14.3 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. Therefore, our liability is unlimited in respect of 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 Services as summarised at clause 12.2.
14.4 When we are liable for damage to your property. 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.
14.5 We are not liable for business losses. If you use the Services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
