6. Subscriptions, Paid Content, Pricing and Availability
6.1 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all descriptions of Subscriptions and Paid Content available from Us correspond to the actual Subscription and Paid Content that you will receive. Please note, however, that due to possible power, network or data outages, problems with relevant third party service providers, or other common technical issues, minor differences or discrepancies may occur.
6.2 Please note that sub-Clause 6.1 does not exclude Our responsibility for mistakes due to negligence on Our part and refers only to minor discrepancies. Please refer to Clause 11 if your Subscription or the Paid Content is incorrect.
6.3 We may from time to time change Our prices. Changes in price will not affect any Subscription that you have already purchased but will apply to any subsequent renewal or new Subscription. We will inform you of any change in price at least 7 calendar days before the change is due to take effect. If you do not agree to such a change, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 13.1.
6.4 Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Paid Content, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address technical or security issues. These changes will not alter the main characteristics of the Paid Content and should not normally affect your use of that Paid Content. However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Paid Content, suitable information will be provided to you.
6.5 In some cases, as described in the relevant content descriptions, We may also make more significant changes to the Paid Content. If We do so, We will inform you at least 7 calendar days before the changes are due to take effect. If you do not agree to the changes, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 13.1.
6.6 Where any updates are made to Paid Content, that Paid Content will continue to match Our description of it as provided to you before you purchased your Subscription to access the Paid Content. Please note that this does not prevent Us from enhancing the Paid Content, thereby going beyond the original description.
6.7 We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. Prices are updated to include VAT before your order is placed.
6.8 If We discover an error in the price or description of your Subscription after your order is processed, We will inform you immediately and make all reasonable efforts to correct the error. You may, however, have the right to cancel the Contract if this happens. If We inform you of such an error and you do wish to cancel the Contract, please refer to sub-Clause 13.4.
7. Orders – How Contracts Are Formed
7.1 Our Site will guide you through the process of purchasing a Subscription. Before completing your purchase, you will be given the opportunity to review your order and amend it. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully before submitting it.
7.2 If, during the order process, you provide Us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact Us as soon as possible. If We are unable to process your order due to incorrect or incomplete information, We or Paddle.com will contact you to ask to correct it. If you do not give us the accurate or complete information within a reasonable time of Our request, We will cancel your order and treat the Contract as being at an end. We will not be responsible for any delay in the availability of Paid Content that results from you providing incorrect or incomplete information.
7.3 No part of Our Site constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order to purchase a Subscription constitutes a contractual offer that We may, at Our sole discretion, accept. Our acknowledgement of receipt of your order does not mean that we have accepted it. Our acceptance is indicated by Paddle.com sending you a Subscription Confirmation by email. Only once We have sent you a Subscription Confirmation will there be a legally binding Contract between Us and you.
7.4 Subscription Confirmations shall contain the following information:
7.4.1 Your Transaction ID;
7.4.2 Fully itemised pricing for your Subscription including, where appropriate, taxes, and other additional charges;
7.4.3 A link to the cancellation page and Terms of Sale;
7.5 In the unlikely event that We do not accept or cannot fulfil your order for any reason, We will explain why in writing. No payment will be taken under normal circumstances. If We have taken payment any such sums will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 calendar days.
7.6 Any refunds under this Clause 7 will be issued to you as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of the day on which the event triggering the refund occurs.
7.7 Refunds under this Clause 7 will be made using the same payment method that you used when purchasing your Subscription, unless you specifically request that We make a refund using a different method.
8.1 Payment for Subscriptions must always be made in advance. Your chosen payment method will be charged when Paddle.com process your order and send you a Subscription Confirmation (this usually occurs immediately and you will be shown a message confirming your payment).
8.2 Our order process is conducted by our online reseller Paddle.com. Paddle.com is the Merchant of Record for all our orders. Paddle provides all customer service inquiries and handles returns.
8.3 If you do not make any payment due to Us on time, We will suspend your access to the Paid Content and We may cancel the Contract. For more information, please refer to sub-Clause 9.5. Any outstanding sums due to Us will remain due and payable.
8.4 If you believe that We have charged you an incorrect amount, please contact Us at [email protected] as soon as reasonably possible to let us know. You will not be charged for Paid Content while availability is suspended.

9.2 When you place an order for a Subscription, you acknowledge that you wish the Paid Content to be made available to you immediately. You also acknowledge that by accessing (e.g. downloading or streaming) the Paid Content, you will lose your legal right to cancel if you change your mind (the “cooling-off period”). Please see sub-Clause 12.1 for more information.
9.3 In some limited circumstances, We may need to suspend the provision of Paid Content (in full or in part) for one or more of the following reasons:
9.3.1 To fix technical problems or to make necessary minor technical changes;
9.3.2 To update the Paid Content to comply with relevant changes in the law or other regulatory requirements;
9.3.3 To make more significant changes to the Paid Content, as described above in sub-Clause 6.5.
9.4 If We need to suspend availability of the Paid Content for any of the reasons set out in sub-Clause 9.3, We will inform you in advance of the suspension and explain why it is necessary (unless We need to suspend availability for urgent or emergency reasons such as a dangerous problem with the Paid Content, in which case We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible after suspension). If the suspension lasts (or We tell you that it is going to last) for more than 7 calendar days, you may end the Contract as described below in sub-Clause 13.2.
9.5 We will suspend provision of the Paid Content and We may cancel the Contract if We do not receive payment on time from you. We will inform you of the non-payment on the due date, and We may suspend provision of the Paid Content until We have received all outstanding sums due from you. If We do suspend provision of the Paid Content, We will inform you of the suspension. You will not be charged for any Paid Content while provision is suspended.
9.7 Any refunds under this Clause 9 will be issued to you as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 calendar days of the day on which the event triggering the refund occurs.
9.8 Refunds under this Clause 9 will be made using the same payment method that you used when purchasing your Subscription.
10.1 When you purchase a Subscription to access Paid Content, We will grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable licence to access and use the relevant Paid Content for personal, non-commercial purposes. The licence granted to you does not give you any rights in Our Paid Content (including any material that We may licence from third parties).
10.2 The licence granted to you under sub-Clause 10.1 is subject to the following usage restrictions and/or permissions:
10.2.1 You may not copy, rent, sell, publish, republish, share, broadcast or otherwise transmit the Paid Content (or any part of it) or make it available to the public except as permitted under Swedish copyright law.
11. Problems with the Paid Content
11.1 By law, We must provide digital content that is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, and as described. If any Paid Content available through your Subscription does not comply, please contact Us as soon as reasonably possible to inform Us of the problem. Your available remedies will be as follows:
11.1.1 If the Paid Content has faults, you will be entitled to a repair or a replacement.
11.1.2 If We cannot fix the problem, or if it has not been (or cannot be) fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience to you, you may be entitled to a full or partial refund.
11.1.3 If you can demonstrate that the fault has damaged your device or other digital content belonging to you because We have not used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation. Please refer to sub-Clause 14.3 for more information.
11.2 Please note that We will not be liable under this Clause 11 if We informed you of the fault(s) or other problems with particular Paid Content before you accessed it and it is that same issue that has now caused the problem (for example, if the Paid Content in question is an alpha or beta version and We have warned you that it may contain faults that could harm your device or other digital content); if you have purchased the Paid Content for an unsuitable purpose that is neither obvious nor made known to Us and the problem has resulted from your use of the Paid Content for that purpose; or if the problem is the result of misuse or intentional or careless damage.
11.4 Refunds (whether full or partial, including reductions in price) under this Clause 11 will be issued within 14 calendar days of the day on which We agree that you are entitled to the refund.
11.5 Refunds under this Clause 11 will be made using the same payment method that you used when purchasing your Subscription.

12. Cancelling Your Subscription
12.1 If you are a consumer in the European Union, by default you have a legal right to a “cooling-off” period within which you can cancel the Contract for any reason, including if you have changed your mind, and receive a refund. The period begins once We have sent you your Subscription Confirmation (i.e. when the Contract between you and Us is formed) and ends when you access (e.g. download or stream) the Paid Content, or 14 calendar days after the date of Our Subscription Confirmation, whichever occurs first.
12.2 After the cooling-off period, you may cancel your Subscription at any time, however subject to sub-Clause 12.3 and Clause 13, We cannot offer any refunds and you will continue to have access to the Paid Content for the remainder of your current Subscription (up until the renewal or expiry date, as applicable), whereupon the Contract will end.
12.3 If you purchase a Subscription by mistake (or allow your Subscription to renew by mistake), please inform Us as soon as possible and do not attempt to access any Paid Content. Provided you have not accessed any Paid Content since the start date (or renewal date, as appropriate) of the Subscription We will be able to cancel the Subscription and issue a full refund of the most recent payment in relation to the Subscription. If you have accessed any Paid Content once the Subscription has started, We will not be able to offer any refund and you will continue to have access to the Paid Content for the remainder of the Subscription (up until the renewal or expiry date, as applicable).
12.4 If you wish to exercise your right to cancel under this Clause 12, you may inform Us of your cancellation in any way you wish, however for your convenience We offer a cancellation form on Our Site Cancelation Form and will include a link to it with the Subscription Confirmation.

If the change is set to take effect or apply to you before the end of your current Subscription, We will issue you with a pro-rated refund equal to the remaining time left in that Subscription.
