Your subscription lasts for one year unless agreed otherwise.


We will alert you when your subscription is due for renewal.  If you wish to terminate your subscription you should then tell us so in writing (e.g. email). Failing that we will send you an invoice for the next year’s subscription. You will have a further ten days from that invoice to tell us that you wish to terminate your subscription. If you do not do so your subscription will be continue for the next year, on the same terms, and you will be liable to pay the invoice.


Our fees normally vary according to the number of people in your organisation and according to their role. If your number of staff increases during a subscription period for which you have paid we will not normally make an additional charge, but we reserve the right to do so if the numbers increase by more than 20% or if it seems the information you provided to us about your numbers was not accurate.


We may agree a discount with you in return for you committing to a subscription for more than one year. Your annual fee will then be fixed accordingly for the duration of your commitment (give or take any adjustments that may arise due to significant changes in your staff numbers).
