All prices quoted are inclusive of applicable taxes and delivery costs. Free trials and special first year price offers are only available to those who have not previously subscribed and are limited to one subscription per household.  The period for which you are subscribing will be set out in the order form.

Direct Debit and Continuous Credit Card payment renewals

If you pay for your subscription by direct debit or continuous credit card, your subscription will continue automatically until you cancel it. By opting to subscribe in this way, you are agreeing that your subscription will renew automatically at the rate then in effect (less any discount which might apply).

We will notify you in advance of any change to your subscription price. If you wish to cancel, you may do so at any time and claim a full refund on the unexpired part of your subscription.

Refunds

We offer a free trial period for our own subscription products. If you are not completely satisfied with your product, you can cancel your subscription during this period and any payment taken will be refunded. After the free trial period we also offer a pro-rata refund. This means that, at any time, you can claim a full refund on the unexpired part of your subscription.
You may cancel orders for one-off reports at any time before we email the report or links to you (in which case we will refund in full any payment taken from you), however we do not offer a refund on all reports after that email has been sent.  Please check the order form for details.
Any refund will be processed within 14 days of your request to cancel the subscription.

From time to time we promote other companies’ products. Whilst we encourage our partner companies to offer as generous a refund policy as we do, their refund policy may differ, so please ensure you check their refund policy before ordering.
