We reserve the right to terminate your membership or place your membership on hold if we suspect your account security has been compromised.
Charging and cancellation
Where to find the price for the product. The price of your YP Academy membership will be the price indicated on our website when you register with us. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of membership advised to you is correct. In the event we discover an error in the price of membership advised to you, we will notify you of the correct price and refund any overpayment within 14 days of notifying you.
Charging cycle. The membership fee for access to YP Academy will be charged in advance to your Payment Method on the first day of your paid subscription, and on the first day of each auto-renewal period. Your charging cycle will be either monthly or annual, depending on the choice you made during registration. We reserve the right to offer alternative charging cycles from time to time. In some cases your payment date may change (e.g. when your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month). Your next payment date will be shown in the “Subscription” section on the YP Academy website.
Free Trials. Your YP Academy membership may start with a free trial. Availability of a free trial is not guaranteed and, if one is available, it is only available to those who have not previously used one for YP Academy. Your first payment will be charged to your Payment Method following the end of the free trial, unless cancelled in accordance with the instructions for cancellation below. We will provide details of the free trial when you register as a YP Academy member, but you may not receive a separate notice that your free trial is about to end or has ended, or that your paid membership has begun.
Changes to our prices. We may change the prices we charge for the Service from time to time. We will notify you of any price changes at least 45 days before they come into effect.
Payment Method. To use YP Academy, you must provide a payment method which is accepted by our third-party payment provider (“Payment Method”). You authorise us (and our third-party payments provider) to charge the Payment Method registered to your YP Academy account for payment of your membership fee. Where the Payment Method belongs to a parent or guardian, you confirm that you have obtained their consent. You are responsible for any unpaid amounts. If any payment is not successfully made (e.g. due to the Payment Method having expired, or insufficient funds), we may suspend your access to the Service until any unpaid amounts have been paid. We will not be liable for any fees relating to the processing of payments (e.g. card issuer fees). Please check with your Payment Method provider if you are unsure about this.
Updating your Payment Method. You can update your Payment Method in the “Subscription” section on the YP Academy website. Following any update, you authorise us to continue to charge your Payment Method.
Cancellation. You can cancel your YP Academy membership at any time. Save for any payments which are outstanding at the time of cancellation, we will not charge you any further amounts. All payments are non-refundable, and we do not provide refunds or credits for any partial membership periods or unused YP Academy content. If you cancel your membership, we will automatically close your account at the end of the charging cycle. You have a statutory right to cancel your membership within 14 days of signing up to the Service, and if you choose to do so you will not be charged, and we will refund any payments you have made to us within 14 days.
How to cancel. In order to cancel your YP Academy membership, open the “Subscription” section on the YP Academy website and select “turn off” auto-renew. Once you have clicked this option and confirmed you wish to cancel, your membership will automatically expire at the end of the charging cycle. If you experience any issues with cancellation via this method, please contact us via any of the methods above.
Service failure. If we fail to provide you with the Service (either partially or completely), you can terminate your YP Academy membership by contacting us using any of the methods listed above, and we will refund your membership fee for the portion of the charging cycle unused at the time of termination, in addition to any portion of the charging cycle during which you did not have access to the Service as a result of our failure.
Termination. Upon termination of your YP Academy account, whether terminated by us or at your request (except for cancellation of your membership in which case your membership will continue until the end of the charging cycle), you will immediately lose the right to access the Service.
How we may use your personal information
Other important terms
Our liability. Nothing in these Terms affects your statutory rights. If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. We only supply the Service for domestic and private use. To the extent not prohibited by applicable law, we shall not be liable to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption or loss of business opportunity resulting from the use of, or inability to use the Service. We will not be liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting from causes beyond our reasonable control. Under no circumstances will our liability to you (howsoever arising) exceed one thousand pounds (£1,000).
Your statutory rights. Nothing in these Terms affects your statutory rights. Legally, any digital content we provide to you must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If your digital content is faulty, you are entitled to a repair or replacement. If a fault cannot be fixed, or if it hasn’t been fixed within a reasonable period of time and without significant inconvenience, you may be entitled to a partial or full refund. If you can show that the fault has damaged your device and we haven’t used reasonable care and skill, you might be entitled to a repair or compensation.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Service, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
Governing law. These terms are governed by the law of England and Wales and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Service in the English or Welsh courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Service in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Service in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
Changes to these Terms. We may, from time to time, change these Terms. We will notify you of any changes to these Terms at least 45 days before they come into effect.
