Section 2: Subscription terms

  1. Your Subscription

Contract with PPG. By submitting your payment and other subscription details you are making an offer to PPG to buy a subscription (a Subscription, and Subscribing will be construed accordingly) to our online products and/or any print versions of our products (together the PPG Materials). Your offer will be accepted by us and a contract formed in respect of your Subscription only when we have verified your payment details at which point we will confirm your Subscription (by sending you a confirmation email or letter to the postal address you have given us) and provide you with access to (and if applicable, deliver to you) the relevant PPG Materials for the selected Subscription period. If we are unable to accept your order for any reason, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the Subscription.

Print materials. Where included in your Subscription, print versions of PPG Materials will be delivered to the address specified by you during the order process. The costs of delivery are included in the cost of your Subscription, unless otherwise stated. PPG will deliver the number of issues stated on your order confirmation. PPG will make every reasonable effort to deliver the PPG Materials within 30 days of each publication date, but cannot be held responsible for postal or customs delays. Any claims for non-delivery must be notified by email to [email protected] as soon as possible and any claim notified later than three months after the publication date of the relevant issue will not be upheld where PPG has evidence that the PPG Materials were dispatched to you.

Payment details. You must provide us with complete and accurate payment information and details including your geographical location. By doing this, you are representing to us that: you are entitled to purchase the Subscription, and that we may use such payment information and details in order to pay for the Subscription (and for us to process such payment) throughout the period of your Subscription. If you are entitled to a refund at any time, we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment (unless it has expired, in which case we will contact you using the contact details you have provided).

Price. The price you pay for your Subscription (and the currency in which you pay) will be stated on the relevant web page of the Website from which you began the Subscription ordering process. Such price will be re-confirmed to you as part of the ordering process. It is your responsibility to pay any charges that might be applied by your bank or payment provider in paying for your Subscription, including in relation to any currency conversion required.

Incorrectly stated prices. Whilst we use reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices we display and quote are correct, errors may occur. If we incorrectly state a price, we are not obliged to provide you with a Subscription at that price. If we become aware of a pricing error after having accepted your offer to buy the Subscription at the incorrect price, we will notify you of such error and you may either pay the correct price or cancel the Subscription in which case we will refund any money you have paid us that relates to the unexpired portion of your Subscription. If we cannot contact you or you do respond, we shall be entitled to cancel your Subscription.

Taxes and customs. Unless otherwise indicated, the prices we state for our Subscriptions are exclusive of VAT (or other similar sales tax) which, if applicable, must be paid in addition to the Subscription price. Where your Subscription includes a print publication for delivery overseas, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.

Renewals. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each Subscription period. We will use reasonable endeavours to contact you (using the contact details you have provided) at least 28 days in advance of expiry of your then-current Subscription period to inform you of the renewal, but we make no guarantees to this effect.

When Subscribing, you must provide us with accurate and complete information and it is your responsibility to update and maintain changes to that information through your user account. We are entitled to rely on any information you provide to us during the Subscription process, and to assume it is up-to-date and accurate unless you tell us otherwise.

  1. Cancellation

Cancellation by you. You can cancel your Subscription at any time by contacting us at [email protected] stating that you wish to cancel your Subscription and including your name and Subscription reference number(s). Your cancellation will take effect at the end of your then-current Subscription period (for example, if you have a monthly Subscription, at the end of the then-current month; or if you have an annual Subscription, at the end of the then-current year). Once cancellation takes effect, no further sums will be payable in respect of the cancelled Subscription, but you will not receive a refund of any sums paid up to the point of cancellation.

Ending your Subscription early because of something we have done or are going to do. You may also cancel your Subscription, effective on our receipt of written notice, if: (a) we have told you about an upcoming significant change to your Subscription or these Terms to which you do not agree; (b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of your Subscription and you do not wish to proceed with the Subscription at the correct price; (c) we have informed you that there is a risk that supply of the Subscription may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or (d) we have suspended the supply of PPG Materials for technical or other reasons, or we notify you that we are going to suspend the PPG Materials for such reasons, in either case for a period of more than 30 days. If you cancel for any of the foregoing reasons, we will refund you any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your Subscription.

Cancellation by PPG. We reserve the right to cancel your Subscription if you do not make payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due. We may also cancel your Subscription on giving you at least 30 days’ notice in writing (or less, where we cannot reasonably give such period of notice) where we cease to provide (or to be able to provide) the relevant PPG Materials to which you have Subscribed, or in the unlikely event that we cease to provide Subscription Services generally. If we cancel your Subscription for any of these reasons then we will refund you any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your Subscription.

Suspension by PPG. We may suspend your Subscription: (a) where printed PPG Materials are returned because you are not known at the address you provided to us; (b) to deal with technical problems or make technical changes; (c) to update the PPG Materials to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or (d) to make changes to the PPG Materials as notified by us to you. We will use reasonable efforts to contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending your Subscription, using the contact details you have provided to us. If we have to suspend your Subscription for longer than 30 days in any 12 month period we will either (at our election) adjust the price so that you do not pay for your Subscription during the period when provision of the relevant PPG Materials is suspended, or extend the period of your Subscription to cover the period when the provision of the PPG Materials was suspended (at no additional cost), or (in the case of print publications) ensure that you receive all the PPG Materials that you were due to receive during the Subscription period even if there was a delay in your receiving them. You may contact us to end your Subscription if we suspend provision of the PPG Materials, or tell you we are going to suspend them, in each case for a period of more than 30 days and (if you do so) we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the relevant PPG Materials in respect of the period after you end your Subscription.

Individual & corporate Subscriptions. We offer individuals Subscriptions (Individual Subscriptions) and corporate Subscriptions (Corporate Subscriptions).

Individual Subscriptions. Individual Subscriptions are personal to the individual Subscriber. If you are an Individual Subscriber, you may not share with, give, license or transfer to any other person any of your rights or entitlements under these Terms (including to access and/or use PPG Materials under your user account using your password and login details). You are responsible for all access to and use of all PPG Materials that occurs under your user account, whether authorised by you or not.

Account Administrators are responsible for all access to and use of all PPG Materials that occurs under their corporate account and for the prevention of unauthorised use of such account. If you are (a) an Account Administrator who shares their user account details with anyone other than the Permitted Users, or (b) a Permitted User who shares their user account details with anyone else, we may (in either case) cancel or suspend your Subscription without further obligation or liability to you. If you believe that your user account is being used by anyone who is not authorised to access it under these Terms, you must inform us immediately via [email protected].

  1. Your use of PPG Materials

PPG hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to access and use the PPG Materials for non-commercial purposes during the period of your Subscription (and, in the case of any printed PPG Materials which you have received as part of your Subscriptions, thereafter).

We may make changes to PPG Materials and to the way these are made available to you to reflect changes in the law and regulatory requirements, to implement minor adjustments or improvements (for example to address a security threat), or for editorial or legal reasons. If we need to make more significant changes to the PPG Materials and/or these Terms, we will notify you using the contact details you have provided. If you do not agree to the changes we are proposing, you may contact us to cancel your Subscription before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any PPG Materials paid for in advance but not yet received.

While PPG will (a) use reasonable skill and care in developing PPG Materials and in providing you with access to PPG Materials as part of your Subscription; and (b) use reasonable commercial efforts to remedy any faults or errors of which we become aware, PPG Materials are provided and made available to you via your Subscription on an “as is” or “as available” basis. We make no representations, warranties or guarantees of any kind, whether express or implied, in respect of the quality, completeness or accuracy of the PPG Materials or the information published therein.

PPG Materials in no way constitute professional advice. You should obtain professional or specialist advice before taking, or refraining from, any action on the basis of the content contained in the PPG Materials.

  1. Our Liability to You
