Changes will apply to new users immediately.

We endeavour not to link to irresponsible websites but cannot intervene in disputes regarding the nature or content of any linked sites or the effect of them on your computer system nor can we accept responsibility for any loss arising from use of such linked sites. The terms of use and privacy policies of those sites will apply to their use.

These terms are not intended to benefit anyone other than you and us. In any dealings between users and third parties introduced through this website (whether via advertising or otherwise), you will agree your own terms and we cannot and will not intervene or accept liability for any loss to you arising from that relationship.

We will be constantly developing and maintaining our website to enhance the service to you, which may involve our website being unavailable for some time ("downtime"). We will not be liable to any user during downtime, however, we promise to use all reasonable efforts to keep downtime to a minimum.

We reserve the right to alter or remove any of the services on our website at any time.

If we do not strictly enforce our rights under these terms at any time, we reserve the right to do so in future both in respect of a particular breach and in respect of any future breach.

We reserve the right to terminate services to you without refund if you materially breach these terms.

In the unlikely event that any of these terms and conditions is held to be unenforceable by a court of law, you agree that this will not affect the validity of the remainder of the terms and conditions which will remain in full force and effect.

4. Service Standards, Start Dates and Termination
We promise to use all reasonable efforts to ensure that our website produces a great experience for all users.

We will not refund subscription fees paid because, though you may only want to use the service for a limited period, the cost of providing that service to you have been spread over the subscription period and it would be unfair to us to have to issue a refund after you have used the service for a portion of the subscription period (say 8 months of a 12 month subscription period).
