For advice specific to your circumstances you should seek the services of an advisor or consultant. (Please contact Terry Freedman Ltd for information about the consultancy service we can provide.)

24.4          The information on this Website is not designed with commercial purposes in mind.  Terry Freedman Ltd makes no representation or warranty that this Content is suitable for use in commercial situations or that it constitutes accurate data and / or advice on which business decisions can be based.

26.              Limitation of Liability

26.1          Terry Freedman Ltd's liability for any direct or indirect loss or damage, foreseeable or otherwise, including any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising out of our breach of these Terms and Conditions shall be limited to the value of a User’s current subscription.  For all other direct or indirect loss or damage, foreseeable or otherwise, including any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising from the use of the Website or any information contained therein, to the maximum extent permitted by law, Terry Freedman Ltd accepts no liability.

27.              Purchasing from Terry Freedman Ltd

27.1          When you place an order to purchase a product directly from Terry Freedman Ltd, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you, or which contains the information you require in order to access the product or service you have purchased.

27.2          At the moment, we do not sell anything from the website directly from ourselves; our online payments are handled by 3rd parties, such as PayPal, e-Junkie, Lulu or SWREG. You will therefore be taken to the 3rd party’s website in order to complete the transaction. Please see the appropriate website for details of the steps required to conclude the transaction, and how it treats your data. Please note that when purchases are made, except in the case of Lulu, we receive the purchaser's details via email, to which access is password-protected.

27.3          It should be noted that some services, such as SWREG gives all prices in US dollars, and that the exchange rate used by SWREG may not always be exactly the same as the current one. Similarly, because the exchange rate fluctuates, the actual exchange rate may sometimes differ from the one used on our website. For these reasons, the British pound price quoted for a product may be different from the one actually charged by SWREG, and the US dollar price quoted may be different from the one actually charged by PayPal. In all transactions, you will be able to see the actual price before you pay, and will be able to abort the process if you do not wish to purchase at that time.

27.4          We handle offline payments ourselves, if you send us your purchase order and payment direct.

27.5          Postage and packing rates are published on the relevant website as required, so you will be able to know these in advance of placing your order. If you place an order online for a physical product, the delivery charges should be itemised in the purchase order generated.

Delivery times

27.6          Delivery of digital goods and subscriptions is usually instant on completion of the payment process.

Purchase of digital products via cheques and orders sent directly to us

  1. As soon as we receive the order we will confirm that by email.
  2. If the order form is accompanied by an official school, local authority or company purchase order, we will email confirmation of receipt followed very quickly by an email containing details necessary to access the product(s) you have ordered, and dispatch an invoice to you within 30 days.
  3. As soon as the funds have been cleared, we will email details of how to access your purchase.

Please note the following:

28.              Pricing, availability and substitutes

28.2          If the product you ordered is not available, we will advise you accordingly.

31.8          Terry Freedman Ltd reserves the right to exercise discretion with respect to any returns under these Terms and Conditions.  Factors which may be taken into account in the exercise of this discretion include, but are not limited to:

31.9          Any use or enjoyment that you may have already had out of the Goods;

31.10      Any characteristics of the Goods which may cause them to deteriorate or expire rapidly;

31.11      The fact that the Goods consist of audio or video recordings or computer software and that the packaging has been opened;

31.12      Any discounts that may have formed part of the purchase price of the Goods to reflect any lack of quality made known to the Customer at the time of purchase.

31.13      Such discretion to be exercised only within the confines of the law.

31.14      By law, customers in the European Union also have the right to withdraw from (ie cancel) the purchase of an item within seven working days of the day after the date the item is delivered. Please note that this returns policy applies only to physical products; see below for digital items.

31.15      Please note that our refund policy applies to all of our products except for digital items (eg: e-books or a website subscription) where the item has been downloaded. In such cases, a refund will be made only if there has been an error on our part or if the product is technically defective (eg it will not open).

31.16      If you have paid for a subscription, you may cancel your subscription at any time. If you do so, you will continue to enjoy access to the appropriate areas of the website and emailed communications right up to the date and time at which the renewal payment would have occurred. Renewal payment will not be taken when the subscription period ends, but we will not refund payment for the time remaining on the current subscription period.

31.17      If you order any digital service, you may cancel up to seven days after the day the order was made, or after written confirmation is received. Please note that if you purchase the product over the internet, you will receive confirmation by email virtually immediately. Therefore there will be, in effect, no cooling-off period. In the case of physical products purchased directly from us, the cooling-off period ends seven working days after the day the goods are received.

31.18      If you need to return an item it will be at your own expense, unless you were sent the wrong product due to an error on our part.

31.19      If you order an item which is not in stock, we will contact you to enquire whether you would like us to refund your money, wait until the goods are in stock or send you a substitute.

32.              Prices quoted

32.1          The prices quoted on the website remain valid until they are changed, or sometimes until a specific date in the case of a special offer.

32.2          If you purchase a product and the price is changed before the transaction has been completed, the price charged will be the one that prevailed at the start of the purchasing process, up to a time limit of 30 days.

33.              Cancellation rights

33.1          Please see points 2, 3, 4 and 5 under “Refund policy”, above.

33.2          Please note that you must inform us in writing – by letter, fax or email – of your decision to cancel.

33.3          If you wish to return an item it will be at your own expense, unless you were sent the wrong product due to an error on our part.

33.4          Please note that there is no right to cancel once access to a digital product, such as a subscription, has started, or where the service has begun, by agreement, before the end of the cooling-off period.

34.              Cooling-off period

34.1          Please see points 2, 3, 4 and 5 under “Refund policy”, and “Cancellation rights” above.

35.              Guarantees and after-sales service

35.1          Should you purchase a subscription or digital product which has a technical fault, we will replace it or resolve, or help you resolve, the issue until you are able to enjoy the product you purchased.

35.2          In the case of subscriptions, if the fault is ours (rather than yours) and results in your not having access to the service for a prolonged period of time, we may extend the period of the subscription free of charge at our discretion.

35.3          Please note that from time to time the service may be unavailable due to technical reasons, as is the nature of services provided over the internet. We cannot guarantee 100% availability because we ourselves are dependent on other services, and cannot therefore undertake to compensate subscribers for every occasion that the service is not available. We will, however, attempt to minimise such inconvenience. If there is a prolonged period of inaccessibility, we may extend the subscription period free of charge at our discretion.

36.              Payment

36.1          Any and all invoices are due for payment on the date shown on the invoice, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed between the Purchaser and Terry Freedman Ltd.

36.2          Interest will be charged on a daily basis, commercial interest at 8% above the base rate of the Bank of England obtaining at the time. (The rate that applies is the rate in force at the end of the day on which the payment was due.)

37.              No Waiver

In the event that any party to these Terms and Conditions fails to exercise any right or remedy contained herein, this shall not be construed as a waiver of that right or remedy.

38.              Previous Terms and Conditions

In the event of any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and any prior versions thereof, the provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall prevail unless it is expressly stated otherwise.

39.              Notices
