No condition, warranty, misrepresentation or other terms, express or implied, are binding on us except other than as expressly stated in the Agreement. Any condition, warranty, misrepresentation or other term concerning the supply of the Licensed Materials or our services which might otherwise be implied into, or incorporated in, the Agreement, or any collateral contract, whether by statute, common law or otherwise howsoever is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
3.3 You agree that Licensed Materials:
3.3.1 have not been developed to meet your individual requirements and that it is your responsibility to ensure that the facilities and functions of the Licensed Materials meet your requirements.
3.3.2 are not free of bugs or errors and you accept that the existence of any errors which do not materially interfere with the overall functioning of the Licensed Materials as a condition of supply and licensing of Licensed Materials;
3.3.3 may rely upon the proper functioning of third party computing infrastructure which we do not control, and you accept that where such infrastructure fails products or services made available by Licensed Material may not be available to you;

If you choose to pay the Fees on a monthly basis you shall do so in accordance with clause 4.3 of these General Terms. You irrevocably authorise us to use any credit card details to take payments due to us. If you do not provide us with credit card details, you must pay the Fees within the time period allowed for such payment.

4.3 Fees payable monthly for a licence or Service under the Agreement shall be due on the commencement date of the Initial Term and on that date on each month thereafter during the Term. Alternatively, we reserve the right to take payment for the first monthly Fee for the Initial Term calculated on a pro rata basis for the remainder of the calendar month in which it falls due ("First Partial Month") and the monthly Fee in full for each calendar month thereafter (for which payment will fall due on the first day of each calendar month). If we exercise this right, the Initial Term shall be deemed extended by the duration of the First Partial Month.
4.4 We shall be entitled to increase the Fees payable under the Agreement once per calendar year for each licence or Service we provide provided that such increase shall not exceed an amount equal to 7.5% of the Fees payable for the licence or Service 12 months prior to the effective date of the increase.

4.6 We accept payment by credit card and this payment method shall apply by default under all Orders. If you pay Fees by credit card, we will take payment automatically on or around the due date for payment. You may request in writing to pay using an alternative payment method. If we accept payment by an alternative method, we shall be entitled to charge you an administration fee in respect of each payment you make notified to you in writing at the time we accept your request. The administration fee shall be payable by you at the same time as the Fees. We may adjust the administration fee at any time by providing written notice to you.
4.7 Except as specified in the Order, all Fees shall be non-refundable.
4.8 If you fail to pay the Fees in full when due and payable, the licences set out in the Agreement or the Services may be suspended without notice to you; (2) replaced with other data chosen by us in our sole discretion and without notice, and/or (3) terminated on 7 days' notice in writing by us. We reserve the right at all times to exercise such rights in sequence or in any order and vary such measures we see fit from time to time
5.1 You shall, within 24 hours of receiving our written notice, provide us with any records or other information we reasonably request to demonstrate that you have and will comply with your obligations under the Agreement.
5.2 If you do not provide the information requested by us under clause 5.1 you irrevocably agree that our records relating to your compliance with your obligations under the Agreement or relating to the use or misuse of the Licensed Materials (whether by you or any person authorised by you) shall be deemed conclusive.
6 Your Account
You shall maintain an account on our Website at all times during the Term. You must not share your login details for your account with any third party, and we reserve the right to suspend or terminate access to your account if we suspect or become aware that you are misusing it or that it is being used by anyone other than you.
7 Term and Termination
7.1 The Agreement shall commence on the date we accept your Order or the commencement date expressly specified in the Order. The Agreement shall continue in force and effect for the Trial Period and, subject to our receipt of the applicable Fees, for the Initial Term. Upon expiry of the Initial Term, the Agreement will automatically renew for successive periods of the same duration as the Initial Term excluding any First Partial Month (each a "Renewal Term"), unless either you or we give written notice of non-renewal to the other of not less than thirty (30) days (such notice to expire prior to the date of expiry of the Initial Term or Renewal Term, as applicable). If we do not receive payment from you on or before the expiry of the Trial Period, the Agreement will automatically terminate on expiry of the Trial Period without notice and without liability to you.
7.2 We may terminate the Agreement immediately by written notice to you if you are in material breach which is incurable or if you fail to remedy a curable breach within 14 days of your receipt of written notice specifying the breach and requiring you to remedy the same within the said period, or are in persistent breach of the terms of the Agreement without notice to you. It will be a material breach of the Agreement to fail or refuse to comply with any of the provisions of clauses 2 to 6 of these General Terms.
7.3 We may terminate the Agreement for convenience immediately by written notice to you within 14 days after we accept the applicable Order. Non-exhaustive examples of when we may do so are where we believe that you are our competitor or may intend to misuse any Licensed Materials, but we are not obliged to state any reason for such termination. We will refund all Fees paid by you in respect of the Order up to such termination.
7.4 We may terminate the Agreement by giving 7 days’ written notice to you if you fail to pay any sum payable to us under the Agreement by the due date for payment.

8.2 The expiry or termination of the Agreement shall not affect any right to damages or other remedy to which a party is entitled at the date of expiry or termination and, in the case of termination, which the terminating party may have in respect of the event giving rise to the termination.

10 Force Majeure
Neither party shall be in breach of the Agreement nor liable for delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under the Agreement if such delay or failure result from events, circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control. If the period of delay or non-performance continues for 10 days, the party not affected may terminate the Agreement by giving 14 days' written notice to the affected party. This clause 10 shall not apply to your payment obligations under the Agreement, whether in respect of the Fees, under your indemnification obligations or otherwise.

If you do so, we will reimburse Fees for the future period of Services or applicable licence.
12.4 If any of the terms of the Agreement are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, that term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Nothing in this clause 2.8 shall reduce or otherwise affect our rights under clause 2.1 of this Data Addendum.

As between you and us, you shall be responsible for responding to and fulfilling to all such rights.
