Free Trials and Subscriptions
Where we offer a free trial, it begins when you sign-up (even if you choose not to first use our App or services until a later date) and ends 48 hours later. If you want to cancel your trial, you must cancel before the trial period expires. If you do not cancel the trial within the trial period, you will be charged for the full month, with your subscription automatically converting to a regular monthly fee.
Trials are not transferable, may not be combined with other offers or redeemed for cash or credit. Trials are available only to new users who have never used our services before and there is only one trial permitted per user and payment method. It is a violation of these terms to sign up for a trial if you have previously signed up for an account or trial in the past or to have more than one account or trial active at the same time. We reserve the right to determine your eligibility for a trial and if we believe you are not eligible for a trial, we may cancel your trial. If we cancel your trial for any reason you will not be eligible for recourse or refund.
When you sign up to use our Apps and services you’ll have the option to select one of our subscription plans. Each subscription starts when you sign up and make payment via a valid payment method. The billing cycle will be one calendar month, six months or one year based on the subscription option chosen and your subscription will automatically renew, unless or until your subscription is cancelled or terminated. Where possible, you will be billed on the same date which will be the date you signed up. Where such a date does not exist in a particular renewal month, you will be billed on the date immediately preceding.
By choosing to continue with your subscription, you authorise billing to your payment method and agree to keep your payment method current and valid at all times. If your payment method expires then you must update it and we may end your subscription if you fail to make payment when it is due.
We will notify you of the price of your subscription when you sign up. However, we may change pricing at any time. We will endeavour to notify you of any price change through the App or by another method such as email. Any price changes to your subscription will take effect on or after the start of your next billing cycle. If you do not agree to the price change you may cancel your subscription at any time before it renews. If you choose not to cancel your subscription, you will be deemed to have accepted the revised pricing. Following cancellation you will continue to have access to your subscription until the end of your billing cycle. All subscriptions are non-refundable and you are responsible for paying for your subscription until you cancel it in accordance with these terms.

Cancellations and Refunds
By placing an order through our “Sites”, you confirm that you have read, understood and agree to these General Terms and Conditions of Sale in their entirety and you agree to be bound by them.

- Digital content: Starts the moment you sign up for the contract and ends 14 days later. This right automatically ends if you access, utilise or stream the content.

[@K1]Would it be an idea to revise this Disclaimer? Ideally we should avoid processing “Health Data” as it could be categorised as SCPD which has additional obligations attached.
