Fees

The charges for our services are published on our web site. We maintain the ability to change them at will, however changes are not retrospective.

Charges for a service are those published at the time you request for the service. Special, promotional or bundled pricing for particular services may be limited on a per year/member/email address basis; prices displayed after account login and prior to payment will indicate eligibility for such pricing. You agree to pay for all the services you request and/or use. Charges that you pay are non-refundable, except where we have expressly consented otherwise.

You agree that failure to pay or failure of payment being honoured will void your application and relieve us of any responsibility with regards to the provision of the services applied for.

You acknowledge and agree that we may, at our discretion, choose to send notification of expiry but are not obliged to do so, but that it is your responsibility to ensure that your electronic contact address is valid, active and correct. You agree that we cannot be held responsible for any loss/suspension/termination of any service arising from a failure to renew your services.
