THIS SECTION EXPLAINS ABOUT PAYMENT INCLUDING AUTO-RENEWAL OF SUBSCRIPTIONS AND PRICE CHANGES
Payment is in advance on subscription. Prices, subscription periods and payment methods are as explained on our Service. The prices shown include any applicable VAT or other sales tax unless we say otherwise.
You are legally committed to make your subscription payment once we confirm your order.
If we have mis-priced any part of our Service, we are not obliged to supply the Service at that price provided we notify you. If we do notify you, then you can decide if you want to continue with the Service at the correct price.
Your subscription will continue to be auto-renewed for the subscription period you signed up to unless you end your subscription before the renewal date by following the instructions on our Service. Ending your subscription does not entitle you to a refund. You authorise us and our payment provider to place a hold on, or charge, your payment card for the relevant amounts or otherwise take payment whenever payments are due in accordance with this agreement. It is your responsibility to update your payment card details as necessary.
We may at any time change our subscription prices. We will give you notice by email at least one month before any price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the new price, you should end your subscription by following the instructions on our Service. Otherwise, the next renewal of your subscription after the one month’s notice will be at the new price.
You must contact us immediately with full details if you dispute any payment.
You agree that you are legally bound by the terms and conditions of any payment providers whose services you use on our Service. We aren’t responsible for what they do or don’t do.
If any amount due to us is unpaid (including unjustifiable chargeback), without prejudice to any other remedy that may be available to us, we may charge you: (1) a reasonable additional administration fee; (2) the amount of any third party charges imposed on us; and/or (3) interest (both before and after judgment) on the amount unpaid at the rate for the time being that would be applicable if the debt were a qualifying debt under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
We may offer discount codes from time to time. Such codes may only be applied to purchases made through the account in respect of which the discount code was offered and registered and are not transferrable or redeemable for cash. Unless otherwise stated: codes (1) are only available for future new orders placed online; (2) cannot be used retrospectively; (3) can only be redeemed once per customer; and (4) expire after 12 months. You cannot use more than one discount code per transaction unless we state otherwise; if we do so, the order in which the codes are to be applied is in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to reject any discount code if we consider that it is being used in breach of these terms. Discount codes are subject to any additional specific terms and conditions which are specified at the point of issue. We reserve the right to discontinue or otherwise modify any discount codes at any time without prior notice.
THIS SECTION EXPLAINS IF WE OFFER SUPPORT AND, IF SO, ANY RESTRICTIONS THAT APPLY
The Service includes support only if we specifically say so within the Service and, if so, by the specified contact methods. Any support service is only intended to address configuration and proper use of, or any errors or interruptions arising from, our Service.
Unless we say otherwise, support is only available between 9am and 5pm (excluding non-business days in England) and we do not guarantee any particular response times or outcomes. Any response times given are English business hours/days unless we say otherwise.

Our liability of any kind (including our own negligence) for any act or omission or series of connected acts or omissions is limited to the total fees paid or payable by you to us in connection with our Service in the 12 months before the first act or omission complained of.
In no event (including our own negligence) will we be liable for any of the following (even if we have been advised of the possibility of any such losses): economic losses (including, without limit, loss of revenues, profits, contracts, business or anticipated savings); or loss of goodwill or reputation; or special, indirect or consequential losses; or damage to or loss of data.
We shall have no liability of any kind for any losses or damage to the extent that they result from your breach of this agreement.
You will indemnify us against all claims and liabilities arising out of or in connection with your use of the Service and/or breach of this agreement (except insofar as we are at fault).
To the extent allowed by law, you and we exclude all terms, whether imposed by statute or by law or otherwise, that are not expressly stated in this agreement.
This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between us with respect to its subject matter and supercedes any previous communications or agreements between us.

Liability for misrepresentation (excluding fraudulent misrepresentation) relating to the terms of this agreement is excluded.
Intellectual property rights (IP)

We and/or our suppliers own the IP in all Content (excluding your Content and that of other Users) used on or in connection with our Service.

You may also share our Material in the “Resources” section of our site (only) with parents/students provided you take reasonable steps to ensure that the parents/students won’t themselves distribute our Material to other people. You must not otherwise use such material including copying, publishing (on the Internet or otherwise), selling or adapting it or taking extracts from it unless we specifically say so in writing (except to the extent specifically allowed by this agreement). You must not misrepresent the ownership or source of such material, for example by changing or removing any legal notices or author attributions.
