1.2 Each subscription/access right is personal to the subscriber, and is a non-exclusive, non-transferable right of access from the date of contract unless otherwise stated.
1.3 For paper subscriptions (where offered) these will be delivered to your nominated address, based on the number of issues stated on the subscription page, for 1 year starting with the current issue at the point of contract, unless otherwise agreed in writing. We will make every effort to deliver print goods within 30 days of each publication, but cannot be held responsible for postal or customs delays. Non print delivery will occur once your order has been accepted, via your access online.

You are not entitled to cancel your subscription during that 12 month period. The 12 months will start in accordance with Clause 2.3 below. However where a shorter subscription is being ordered, this will be for the stated period stated on the subscription page, brochure via telephone or other quoted period and no cancellations shall be permitted. If you wish to cancel any subscription, you will have no contractual right to do so and as you are requesting access to a “periodical” there is no statutory right of cancellation.

A binding contract comes into effect between us once we contact you within to confirm your order with your access details (for non-print subscriptions) but this is conditional upon these Subscription Terms and Conditions applying. If accepted, delivery will be made to you as specified above.
