You will likely receive this confirmation by email within 72 hours if you supplied an email address.

We will not be responsible if you fail to receive the written confirmation because you have supplied us with an incorrect postal address or email address.

Cancellations and refunds

Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 , consumers have certain rights to cancel contracts concluded at a distance. The Contract between you and Future Publishing Limited is such a contract and you have the right to cancel it within 14 days after the date the Contract is entered into (so if you enter into the Contract on 1 January, you may cancel any time before the end of 15 January) (the “Cancellation Period”). Because our Services are subscription-based, you acknowledge and accept that they will be made available to you immediately on formation of the Contract and during the Cancellation Period.

Please note that all credit card refunds will be issued in sterling. Your Credit Card company will convert the sterling amount into your local currency and may charge an additional fee for completing the transaction.

If you make ongoing subscription payments we reserve the right to increase our prices at any time after the first year of your subscription has elapsed and will notify you in writing with at least 10 working days notice of any such price increase.

Although we try to ensure that all prices are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of your order, we will inform you as soon as possible. You will have the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled. We will refund you in full if you cancel the order and have already paid.

If you are under 18 or are not using your own credit/debit card to pay for the subscription, you must ask the permission of the credit/debit card holder before entering the payment details.
