3. Subscriptions

3.1 If you would like to order a Magazine, Our Site will guide you through the subscription process. Before completing your order, you will be given the opportunity to review and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully before submitting it. Subscriptions will start with the next available issue of the Magazine.

3.2 Only once We have sent you an email confirmation of your Subscription will there be a legally binding contract between us and these Terms are part of it.

3.4 In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your order for any reason, no payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days using the same payment method that you used when making the order.

3.5 When you order a Subscription, the information you provide must be accurate and complete. If any of your information changes at a later date, it is your responsibility to ensure that you keep Us up-to-date. If We incur any costs as a result of your incorrect or incomplete information, We may pass those costs onto you. We will not be responsible for failure to deliver if the details you have supplied Us with are incorrect.

3.6 We cannot guarantee that all of the content in our Magazines is appropriate for minors. If you are under 18 years of age, you must obtain your parent or guardian’s permission before ordering a Subscription and only view our content with their supervision.

Delivery dates are approximate and time of delivery is not guaranteed.

We have made every reasonable effort to ensure that the Magazines conform to illustrations, photographs and descriptions provided in our sales and marketing literature. We don’t, however, guarantee that all descriptions, illustrations and/or photographs will be precisely accurate.

6.2 If you discover that the Magazine does not meet this promise, you can either reject it within 30 days of receipt, or require Us to replace it, or (if we fail to do that) require us to refund the price (if applicable). This will only apply, however, if you have given Us a reasonable opportunity of examining the Magazine and returned it to Us at our cost, if requested. These rights do not apply if the defect is a result of normal wear and tear, misuse, abnormal storage, or intentional or careless damage.

7. Cancellation

7.1 You may also cancel your subscription (if it is placed with us online) within 14 days of receipt of the first delivery of your Physical Magazine. If you have already paid for the Physical Magazine, the payment will be refunded to you within 14 days of your cancellation (including delivery costs). You agree that this cancellation right does not apply to any Subscription to the Online Magazine where you have authorised us to download that digital content to you prior to the expiry of such 14 day period. Please note that the right to cancel during this 14-day period does not apply to purchases of single issue magazines.

7.2 We may cancel your Subscription at any time, including if we no longer have sufficient stock, if the Magazines have been discontinued, or for any event outside our reasonable control.
