REGISTRATION AND FORMATION OF CONTRACT

Your application is an offer by you to enter into a binding contract with us, which we are free to accept or decline at our absolute discretion.
All applications are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail or other written notice. The contract between you and us (“Contract”) will only be formed on acceptance. We will begin performance of the Services as soon as reasonably practicable after acceptance of your application, provided that you have made payment to us of the relevant fees.
The Contract will have a fixed term of one month (in the case of monthly subscriptions) or one year (in the case of annual subscriptions) and will renew automatically at the end of each fixed term for a further fixed term. If you do not wish to renew your Contract with us, please notify us in writing at least seven days before the end of the current fixed term.

Because our Services are subscription-based, you acknowledge and accept that they will be made available to you immediately on formation of the Contract and during the Cancellation Period.

If you are a consumer, you may cancel the Contract by notifying us at the address above or at firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of the Cancellation Period.
