You will be required to read and accept these Terms of Sale when ordering a Subscription. If you do not agree to comply with and be bound by these Terms of Sale, you will not be able to purchase a Subscription and access Paid Content through Our Site. These Terms of Sale, as well as any and all Contracts are in the English language only.
1.1 In these Terms of Sale, unless the context otherwise requires, the following expressions have the following meanings:

3.1 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions of Subscriptions and Paid Content available from Us correspond to the actual Subscription and Paid Content that you will receive. Please note, however, that we reserve the right to update and alter course content from time to time so that it remains relevant and aligned with current best practice.
3.2 We may from time to time change Our prices. Changes in price will not affect any Subscription that you have already purchased but will apply to any subsequent renewal or new Subscription. We will inform you of any change in price at least 30 days before the change is due to take effect. If you do not agree to such a change, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 12.1.
3.3 Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Paid Content, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address technical or security issues. These changes will not alter the main characteristics of the Paid Content and should not normally affect your use of that Paid Content. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Paid Content, suitable information will be provided to you.
3.4 In some cases, as described in the relevant content descriptions, We may also make more significant changes to the Paid Content. If We do so, We will inform you at least 7 days before the changes are due to take effect. If you do not agree to the changes, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 12.1.
3.5 Where any updates are made to Paid Content, that Paid Content will continue to match Our description of it as provided to you before you purchased your Subscription to access the Paid Content. Please note that this does not prevent Us from enhancing the Paid Content, thereby going beyond the original description.
3.6 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. All pricing information is reviewed and updated every 6 months. Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 3.10 regarding VAT, however).
3.7 All prices are checked by Us before We accept your order. In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake. If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your order, we will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your order. If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the Subscription at the correct price or to cancel your order (or the affected part of it). We will not proceed with processing your order in this case until you respond. If We do not receive a response from you within 14 days, We will treat your order as cancelled and notify you of this in writing
3.8 If We discover an error in the price or description of your Subscription after your order is processed, We will inform you immediately and make all reasonable efforts to correct the error. You may, however, have the right to cancel the Contract if this happens. If We inform you of such an error and you do wish to cancel the Contract, please refer to sub-Clause 10.4
3.9 If the price of a Subscription that you have ordered changes between your order being placed and Us processing that order and taking payment, you will be charged the price shown on Our Site at the time of placing your order.

3.11 If our price later decreases then you may request your subscription to be reduced to the new rate. We will not be responsible for changing the rate nor will any refunds be applicable.

4.2 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 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.
4.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order to purchase a Subscription constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept.

8.1 By law, We must provide digital content that is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, and as described.
