Terms of Your Agreement
Period of Commitment
You are agreeing to subscribe monthly for the services provided by the Service Provider and contracting to remain a subscriber for the minimum period shown overleaf.
Termination of Service
Limited right to cancel
During the minimum period of the agreement you may cancel the agreement only:
- If we materially and continually fail to maintain the standard of service you experienced when joining.
- If we materially alter the operating hours of the services.
- If you develop a medical condition which prevents you from using the services on an ongoing basis. An appropriate medical practitioner must provide written evidence that this is so.
- If you move away from the area by a distance which we consider, at our sole discretion, to be too far to travel to the services for regular use. We shall evidence that such a move has taken place.
If you cancel your subscription during the minimum contracted period, other than in the circumstances set out above, we shall be entitled to a termination payment. The termination payment will be calculated by multiplying the remaining months of your agreement by your monthly subscription rate, less the equivalent of one month’s subscription. If the Termination Payment becomes due it is payable in one amount within 14 days of the day we give you notice. If you fail to pay you will be liable for any reasonable costs we incur in collecting the money from you, including solicitors fees and/or debt collection service fees.
If you miss two payments you will be deemed to have breached your agreement. We, or Debit Finance Collections plc as our agents, may give you notice to terminate the agreement and we shall then be entitled to the termination payment as described above.
Giving notice to terminate
After you have completed the committed subscription period you may terminate the agreement by giving one month’s notice. The notice must be in writing or by e-mail and sent to us or Debit Finance Collection plc.
