By registering with us you represent that you:
After you place an order for Services from us, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note this does not mean that you order has been accepted.
We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending an email to you that confirms among other things that your order has been accepted, the details of any payments and setting out the dates between which the Services will be provided to you ("Confirmation").
The contract between you and us will only be formed once we send the Confirmation to you and incorporates these terms and conditions ("Contract"). If we are unable to provide all or part of the Services to you, we will inform you of this and will not process that part of your order.
The prices of our Services will be as quoted on our website and may change from time to time.
Depending on the Services which you order, you may be charged a subscription and other charges for the package of Services in advance from the date set out in your Confirmation and any charges for additional Services which you order, such as telephone calls or Video On Demand, may be charged to you in arrears, again as detailed in your Confirmation. Your payment option may also include a connection fee which is due upon ordering the Services.
We may collect the payments from you by using any of the credit or debit card details you have provided to us when registering, we would normally collect this via repeat payments unless we have agreed a Direct Debit facility.
We may increase the charges at any time by giving you one month’s notice. You are entitled to cancel the Services, if you are not happy to agree to such increase in our charges. Please see the "Cancellation" section of these terms and conditions.
Where you request additional equipment from us, such equipment will be charged to you according to our price list or leased to you on a monthly charge basis.
You agree that you are liable for any charges on your account regardless of whether you or anybody else (with or without your permission) runs up those charges (unless the charges result from fraud by someone else which you could have had no control over). If you do become aware of any fraud by someone else, you must tell us as quickly as you can. Under no circumstances should you give your passwords to anybody else (unless you're happy for them to use your account and add charges on your account).
Where you have been asked to pay a connection fee and not a monthly subscription you will be given an expiry date when you select the service. The connection fee entitles you to use the Services until the expiry date and cannot be cancelled, subject to "Cancellation" in the section below.
As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel your Contract during the period of 7 working days from the day after the date of your Confirmation ("Cooling off Period"). A working day means a day which is not a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday in England and Wales.
This means that during this period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to order the Services, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund.
To cancel the Contract, you must contact us in writing by sending an email or a letter to the address shown on our Contact Us page. You may wish to keep a copy of your notice of cancellation for your own records.
If you decide to cancel the Contract within the Cooling off Period, you will receive a full refund of any charges you have already paid for the Services (less any charges in respect of Services which you have used) and we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 calendar days from your notice of cancellation.
After Cooling off Period has expired, you may only cancel the Contract on 30 calendar days' notice.
If you choose to cancel the Contract before the expiry of your Services (as set out in your Confirmation) a cancellation fee equivalent to 75% of the remaining balance will be payable.
You will not be charged a cancellation fee, where you are cancelling because we have notified you that we intend to change the Services we provide to you or to increase the price of the Services.
Where we have breached these terms and conditions, you are free to cancel the Contract between us at any time. We would like the chance to put things right first and so we'd ask you to give us reasonable time to do that before you cancel your Contract.
We may cancel the Contract or suspend the provision of Services to you immediately on notice to you if:
Where we cancel the Contract due to your fault, we will be entitled to charge you the balance of the line rental (if this applies) or the usage charges (or both) that you would have paid for the rest of the minimum period of the relevant Services in additional to any other charges you are liable to pay under this Contract.
