Term and Termination
By commencing a subscription, you are electing to commence the service of the website with
immediate effect. This waives any right, from any law, to make use of a capability known as 'the
cooling off' period, which allows you a period of time to postpone the commencement of the
service. You may change or cancel your authority for Red Snapper Media Ltd to continue with recurring
billing at anytime, by calling the subscription helpline on 020 3119 3361, Monday-Friday between
09:00 - 17:00. This excludes public/bank holidays - if you wish to cancel your subscription during
this period please ensure you call the office during the above hours before this holiday period
begins. No pro-rata refunds will be issued to you if you should choose to cancel your subscription
but full membership benefits will still be available until your current subscription expires. Giving
notice of your cancellation will not affect charges submitted before Red Snapper Media Ltd could
reasonably act to cancel your subscription.
Cancellation of a subscription will cancel future payments not payments that have already been
processed. The cancellation process must be undertaken at least 48 hours prior to the next
subscription due date as subscription payments are initiated at this point to allow for the banking
process and so would be non refundable once this process has been initiated. Your full subscription
access will remain active until the end of the current paid period. Red Snapper Media Ltd reserves the
right to immediately suspend or terminate your access to the service, without notice and without
refund upon any breach of this Agreement by you, which may be brought to our attention.
If your subscription is up for renewal and we are unable to charge your credit/debit card or
paypal account for any reason, we may discontinue your subscription temporarily until we receive
your next subscription payment. We reserve the right to continue to make attempts to bill you,
as per the 'recurring billing' section of these terms and conditions (above) until you cancel your
subscription with Red Snapper Media Ltd using the correct cancellation procedure.
