  • We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Products we provide via the Site without notice. We will not be liable or responsible if for any reason any of the Products are unavailable at any time or for any period.
  • Use of the Products requires compatible devices, Internet access, and certain software; may require periodic updates; and may be affected by the performance of these factors. High-speed Internet access is strongly recommended. The latest versions of required software (as specified in the Help/FAQs section of the Site) may be required for certain transactions or features and to download products from the Site. You agree that these requirements, which may change from time to time, are your responsibility.

You understand and agree that such Products are made available for download by way of a non-exclusive, revocable and personal license only. We do not transfer title to such Products to you and this license shall not be considered a “sale” of the content. You own the media on which the Products are recorded, if any, but we retain full and complete title to the Products (whether on any fixed media or otherwise). You may not:- (i) copy (save as expressly provided in these Terms), redistribute, sell, rent, lease, transfer or sublicense the Products; (ii) circumvent, avoid, bypass, remove, deactivate, impair or otherwise defeat any encryption, rights signalling or copy protection technology in which the Products are wrapped or otherwise associated with; (iii) edit, modify, translate or create derivative works or adaptations of the Products; (iv) decompile copy, reproduce, reverse engineer or disassemble the Products (other than to the extent permitted under applicable law); or (v) operate the Products from a network or mainframe system unless with our prior written consent. Your licence to use the Products automatically terminates if you fail to comply with any provisions of this license.
  • You must not attempt to avoid or undermine any protections we put in place for the security and operation of the Products.
  • You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to the Products, the server on which the Products are hosted or any server, computer or database connected to the Products or to attack the Products via a denial of service attack or by any means other than through a normal web browser in the generally-accepted manner, and in accordance with these Terms. By breaching the provisions of this clause, you may be committing a criminal offence. We shall report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them and your right to use the Products shall immediately and automatically cease.
