BY USING OUR SITE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By using our site, you confirm that you accept these Terms and Conditions and that you agree to comply with them.
You will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these Terms and Conditions when you use, access or browse the site, register your details with us or subscribe for email or online services or send us an email.
If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, you must not use our site.
We recommend that you print a copy of these Terms and Conditions for future reference.
These Terms and Conditions refer to the following additional terms, which also apply to your use of our site:
WE MAY MAKE CHANGES TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time. Every time you wish to use our site, please check these Terms and Conditions to ensure you understand the Terms and Conditions that apply at that time. These terms were most recently updated on 28 February 2022.
WE MAY SUSPEND OR WITHDRAW OUR SITE
Our site is made available free of charge, except in relation to any material available to Subscribers only.
We do not guarantee that our site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of our site for business and operational reasons. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any suspension or withdrawal.
You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and Conditions and other applicable terms and conditions, and that they comply with them.
Access to our email services and to some areas of the site (“Paid Content”) is restricted to users who have registered their details with us (“Subscribers”). Subscribers can be one of two categories:
- Private individuals who require a single Subscription (“Individual Subscribers”).
Individual Subscribers can choose between two subscription types:
a) a 3-month trial subscription, which provides them with unlimited access to the Paid Content, on a recurring monthly basis from the start date of their Subscription, until cancelled; or
b) an Annual Subscription, which provides them with unlimited access to the Paid Content for an entire calendar year, from the start date of their Subscription, as well as a paper copy of our magazine each month.
- Organisations who require a Corporate Subscription for their employees (“Corporate Subscribers”).
Corporate Subscribers receive unlimited digital access to the Paid Content for all their employees. Corporate Subscribers based in the United Kingdom are also entitled to up to 20 paper copies of our magazine per month.
Subscribers must not use a false name or email or provide any false information, nor impersonate another person when registering for use of the site and our email services. Subscribers shall not share or disclose to any third party their username and password for the site, nor allow any third party to use their password to gain access to the areas and services for Subscribers only. Violation of these terms will result in a termination or suspension of the Subscription in question.
You may purchase a Subscription and become a Subscriber by submitting an order via https://alternativecreditinvestor.com/subscribe/. We can only accept an order when we have successfully processed the payment details and emailed the Subscriber to confirm this. If we do not receive payment authorisation or any authorisation is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend the Subscription.
Where you are not a Subscriber, you will only be entitled to access three articles hosted on the site (which would otherwise amount to Paid Content) per month. For the purpose of confirming your compliance with these Terms and Conditions, we reserve the right to monitor and record activity on the Site and Paid Content. Using technological tools for the sole purpose of circumventing this limit is prohibited and would amount to a breach of these Terms and Conditions.
The fees (“Subscription Fees”) for the different subscription types shall be as follows:
- 3-month trial Subscriptions cost £1 for the first 3 months at £9.99 per month thereafter, paid monthly;
- Annual Subscriptions cost £95 per year, paid annually;
- Corporate Subscriptions cost £298.80 per year, paid annually.
Subscribers agree to pay the Subscription Fees applicable to their subscription type upon commencement of their Subscription. Payment of the Subscription Fees is made during the Subscription process, via Paypal, Credit or Debit card.
Unless otherwise indicated, the Subscription Fees stated are inclusive of any applicable value added tax (VAT) or other sales taxes. The breakdown of any VAT will be indicated on the relevant invoice.
We reserve the right to vary the Subscription Fees applicable to new Subscriptions from time to time. If this is the case, we will always update any existing Subscribers before their current Subscription is up for renewal.
Unless you notify us before the end of your current Subscription term that you wish to cancel, your subscription will continue to renew for further equivalent periods and will be subject to these Terms and Conditions. We will charge the subscription using the same card or other payment method that you previously used.
By placing your order for an Monthly Subscription, you agree that we may start your Subscription immediately upon our acceptance of your order and that you waive your statutory right to cancel our contract within 14 days of our confirmation email.
This means that you lose your right to cancel this contract once we have provided confirmation via email of your Subscription and that any notice of cancellation that you provide (whether before or after the 14-day period) will only take effect at the end of your current Subscription Period. Any refunds for cancellations by you are not guaranteed and are solely dependent on our discretion.
You have the right to cancel our contract for an Annual Subscription within 14 days of our confirmation email without giving any reason. To exercise this right, you can email your request at [email protected].
We may suspend or terminate your Subscription if we are prevented from providing services to you by circumstances beyond our control. If this is the case, you will receive a pro-rata refund for any outstanding period remaining of your Subscription.
We may also suspend or terminate your Subscription, without refund, if you breach these Terms and Conditions.
