We may from time to time vary the benefits associated with a Subscription by giving you written notice of the variation, providing that, if in our reasonable opinion such a variation results in a substantial loss of value or functionality, you shall have the right to cancel your Subscription, and we will refund to you any amounts paid to us in respect of any period of Subscription after the date of such cancellation.
At the end of any period of Subscription for which you have paid, and subject to the other provisions of these Conditions, your Subscription will be automatically renewed and you must pay to us the applicable Subscription Fee unless you cancel the Subscription using the cancellation facility on the Website before the date of renewal.
For so long as your account and Subscription remain active in accordance with these Conditions, you will benefit from the features specified on the Website in relation to your Subscription type.

All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If we are unable to supply you with the Services in your order due to matters such as unavailability of stock, materials, key staff or an Event Outside Our Control or because we have identified a mistake in the description of the Services or the price stated by us, we will notify you. We will not proceed with the order and will refund any sums you have paid us.

If you think that there is a mistake in the Confirmation Notice or if you wish to make any changes, please contact us to discuss this. If you request a change, we will tell you if that is possible and about any changes to the price, delivery or performance dates or any other changes that we need to make as a result of your request. We will ask you if you wish to go ahead with the change.
If we make any changes in accordance with clause 10.7 we will give you written notice of the changes before we supply the Services. You can choose to cancel the contract if the change would be significantly to your disadvantage.
Any variation to these Conditions which have been incorporated into the Contract or to the Contract other than those mentioned in clause 10.7 shall only be binding when agreed in writing and signed by you and us.
The Services will be performed at the address or by the means specified by us when we accept the order.

If the Services provided do not conform to the Contract due to them not being provided with reasonable care and skill:
As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Services not carried out with reasonable skill and care, or if the materials we use are faulty or not as described. Nothing in these Conditions will affect these legal rights.

We cannot exclude or limit our responsibility to you for:
We are responsible for foreseeable loss or damage which you suffer as a result of a breach by us of the Contract or as a result of our failure to act with reasonable care and skill. 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. We are not responsible for unforeseeable losses.
You are purchasing the Services as a consumer. If you purchase the Services for any business purpose including for re-sale, we will not be liable for any business losses, loss of profits, loss of contracts, loss of business opportunities, loss of management time, loss of business data or losses due to interruption of your business.
We will not be responsible for any delay in performing the Services if
We will not accept liability for any damage caused by pre-existing defects in any fittings, walls, pipes, wiring, gas installations in your premises or to any goods to which we connect or install or attach the Goods unless we have been negligent in not realising that such damage may occur or in the way we did the work.
We reserve the right to terminate the Contract by writing to you if you fail to make any payment to us when due and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due.
Except for our obligations under this clause, we shall not be responsible for delays or failures in delivery or performance of our obligations to you resulting from any act, event, omission, failure or accident outside our reasonable control ('Event Outside Our Control').
We will take all reasonable steps to minimise a delay in performing our obligations to you which arises from an Event Outside Our Control.
We will promptly notify you of any Event Outside Our Control which prevents us from or delays us in performing our obligations to you, giving details of it and (where possible) the extent and likely duration of any delay.
Our performance will be deemed to be suspended for the period that the Event Outside Our Control continues.
You may end the Contract after we have notified you of an Event Outside Our Control and we will then refund you any money you have paid to us under the Contract for the Services which we have been unable to deliver to you.
Except for our affiliates, directors, employees or representatives, a person who is not a party to the Contract has no right to enforce any term of the Contract but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party that exists or is available to them.

If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under it or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with your obligations.
A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent default.

What to do with your documents
This following pages are to help you - you should separate them from the previous pages.
The first document is the terms and conditions for supplying services to consumers. It should be uploaded onto and used in conjunction with your website. On your website you should describe the services that you are supplying and state the prices and other specific details.
Before your customers place their order and click on your 'Pay Now' button, there should be a link to these terms and conditions. Alternatively your customer should have to scroll through them. There should then be an 'I accept' checkbox referring to these terms and conditions. Your website should not allow your customer to proceed with the order unless they have ticked the 'I accept' checkbox.
There is other 'pre-contract information' that you must provide to the consumer before they make the contract - we have summarised this in the checklist on the next page. We recommend that you provide this information on your website and in the confirmation notice (see below) to the extent that it is not already provided in the terms and conditions and to the extent that it applies to the particular goods/services being offered.
After you have decided to accept the order, send the consumer a confirmation notice on a 'durable medium' e.g. by email or post. If you have not yet provided the pre-contract information on a durable medium, you must include it in your confirmation notice. You must send this confirmation notice to the consumer within a reasonable time after the contract is made, and before delivering the goods or starting performance of the services.
The second document is the model cancellation form that you must provide to your customer along with your confirmation of the order (confirmation notice). You could provide the cancellation form by uploading it onto your website and providing a link to it in the confirmation notice. Alternatively, you could provide it as an email attachment or enclose it in a confirmation notice sent by post. The customer does not have to use it, and may cancel by clearly indicating to you that they wish to do so. If the customer completes and submits the cancellation form to you online, you must send them an acknowledgement of receipt on a durable medium without delay.
If you are selling goods and/or services to a consumer via a distance contract, you must give the consumer certain information before they place the order. You must provide this information in a clear, prominent manner that is appropriate to contracting via a website. You should also repeat the information in the order confirmation notice. This is usually an email sent to confirm that you are dispatching the goods or will perform the services. The confirmation notice must be in a durable medium, i.e. on paper, by email or in a form that allows the consumer to store and reproduce it. Note that these terms and conditions are not appropriate for contracts of indeterminate duration or subscription contracts.
The information that must be given to the consumer before they place the order is:
A description of the main characteristics of the Services
The total price, including all taxes, or the manner in which the price is to be calculated if the nature of the goods or services means it cannot be calculated in advance
Delivery and any other costs, where appropriate
The duration of the contract and minimum duration of the customer's obligations under the contract.
Whether any delivery restrictions apply and which means of payment are accepted.
In addition, before the consumer is bound by the contract, you must give them the model cancellation form set out in the Consumer Rights Directive 2014, a copy of which is found at the bottom of the terms and conditions and the following information. The information must be provided in a clear, comprehensible manner that is appropriate to contracting via a website. It is best to provide this information along with the information mentioned above on the website before the customer places the order. However, you could provide it after the order. At the very latest it must be provided in the confirmation notice.
Your business name and the geographical address, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address of your business (included - but we recommend that this is also provided on the website and in the confirmation notice).
The name and geographical address of any trader you are acting on behalf of (not included - provide on your website and in the confirmation notice).
How long prices quoted remain valid (not included - provide on your website)
Arrangements for payment (included but also include on website and in the confirmation notice)
Arrangements for the delivery of goods or performance of services, including the timeframe. You must deliver goods within 30 days of the purchase if you do not agree a longer timeframe with the customer. You must state any delivery restrictions clearly (not included - provide on your website and the confirmation notice)
The cost to the customer of communicating with you to conclude the contract when it will be more than the basic rate (not included - provide on your website and in the confirmation notice). You are not allowed to charge the consumer premium telephone rates for any helplines you operate in relation to the contract (e.g. for customer queries, cancellations and complaints).
If the consumer has a right to cancel, the time limit, conditions and procedures involved in exercising the right to cancel. (Included but you should also consider providing this on your website and a link to that page in the confirmation notice.)
If you are providing services and the consumer wants you to start performing the services before the end of the cancellation period, you need to ensure you have a request from them and their acknowledgement that they will lose the right to cancel once you have fully performed the services
Where there is no right to cancel or that right could be lost, a statement to this effect and the circumstances in which the right can be lost (included but provide on your website and in the confirmation notice.)
That the consumer will have to pay for services received if they ask you to start performing during the cancellation period and then cancel after you have started
Your complaints handling policy (not included, other than a term that customer should contact you. Include on website and in the confirmation notice)
Details of any out-of-court complaints redress. If you are required to do so by legislation or any rules of your trade association, you must tell the consumer the name and website address of the certified ADR body to submit the dispute to. See below. (ADR provisions are included but also provide on your website and in the confirmation notice)
Details of any guarantees or after-sales service (not included - provide on your website and in the confirmation notice)
Which, if any, codes of conduct apply to you, and where the consumer can get copies (not included - provide on your website and in the confirmation notice)
The existence and conditions of any deposits or other financial guarantees to be provided by the consumer (not included - provide on your website and in the confirmation notice)
Your company registration number.

A description of the technical means for customers to identify and correct input errors prior to placing an order.
Whether or not a copy of the contract will be kept by you and if so, if it can be accessed by the customer.
The languages offered for the conclusion of the contract.
Details of any professional liability insurance guarantee you may have including the contact details of the insurer or guarantor and the territorial coverage of the insurance or guarantee.

Any dispute resolution procedures provided by the professional regulatory body or under the code of conduct that governs your business.
