11.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply Products that are in conformity with this contract. This means that (i) if your product is Materials or digital content, it must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality; and (ii) if your Product is services, it must be carried out with reasonable care and skill. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.
12.1 The price of the Product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your Order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of Products advised to you is correct. However please see Clause 12.2 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Product you Order.
12.2 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the Product’s correct price at your Order date is less than our stated price at your Order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Products correct price at your Order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order. If we accept and process your Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may still end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and have no further legal obligation to you.
12.3 When you must pay and how you must pay:
12.3.1 All Materials must be paid for at the time of submitting your Order.

12.5 Methods of payment are as stated on the Website.
12.6 We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% a year above the base lending rate of The Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
12.7 Our right of set-off if you are a business customer. If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).
12.9 We reserve the right to change our prices without notification to you. Any changes in price will not affect any Order that you have already submitted and that we have accepted.
12.8 Value Added Tax (VAT). The prices shown on our Website do not include any element of VAT.

14.1 If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
14.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Products.
14.3 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
14.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products to individuals for domestic and private use.

(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors (as applicable);
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
(c) breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or section 2 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982.

15.3 Subject to Clause 15.1:
(a) we shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any loss of profit, or any indirect or consequential loss arising under or in connection with any contract between us; and

17.1 Special offers and discounts. Any special offers or discounts on the Website can be withdrawn at any time, without notice and must be used as stated on the Website.
17.2 We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer, you may contact us to end the contract within 10 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Products not provided.
17.3 You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
17.4 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

17.6 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
17.7 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact an ADR provider however, as we are not members of an ADR, we shall, at our sole discretion, have the right as to whether to accept or reject your nominated ADR. In addition, please note that, as long as the UK is part of the European Economic Area, disputes may be submitted for online resolution to the European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform.
