5.2 The contract between us (“contract”) will only be formed when your payment is processed and confirmed by us on the “order summary” screen.
5.3 Each separate registration for our services constitutes a separate legal contract between you and us for the provision of our services on the basis of these terms and conditions.

7. MEMBERSHIP FEES AND PAYMENT TERMS
7.1 The membership fee for our services will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error (“membership fee”). Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars.
7.2 Membership fees are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which you have already received an order summary. All changes to membership fees will be posted on our site.
7.3 It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the membership fees listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify membership fees prior to processing your payment so that, where a service’s price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when charging you. If a service’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before processing your payment, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it.
7.4 If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
7.5 Payment of membership fees must be paid in full by credit or debit card at the time of registration. We accept payment with Visa, Mastercard and American Express. We will charge your credit or debit card at the time you submit your order for membership. Membership fees are non-refundable, subject to clause 8 below (Cancellation).
7.6 All memberships are for provision of the services for a 12 month period and all memberships carry an automatic renewal agreement. You will be notified 14 days in advance of automatic renewal. You can cancel this automatic renewal at any point during this 14 day period. The credit or debit card used to purchase the original membership will be charged the full and current membership fee on the day of renewal. This will constitute a separate order for services and a separate contract between you and us for provision of the services on the basis of these terms and conditions.
8.1 If you are contracting as a consumer, you have a statutory right to cancel your contract for any reason in accordance with this clause 8 and receive a full refund. You will receive a full refund of the membership fee in accordance with our refunds policy (set out in clause 9 below). Your statutory right to cancel a contract starts from the date that your payment is processed, which is the date stated on your order summary, and ends 7 days from this date (“cancellation period”). If you access our services before the end of this cancellation period you will have no right to cancel the contract.
8.2 To cancel a contract, you must inform us in writing. You can do this by emailing us before the end of the cancellation period at firstname.lastname@example.org. This provision does not affect your other statutory rights as a consumer.
8.3 If you are contracting as a business you will have no right to cancel the contract once we have processed your payment and you have received an order summary.
8.4 No other cancellation rights apply save for those expressly stated in this clause 8.
9. OUR REFUNDS POLICY
9.1 If you are a consumer and you cancel your contract with us under the provisions of clause 8 above we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation. In this case, we will refund the membership fee in full, normally by using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
9.2 No refunds will be given by us other than as expressly stated in this clause 9.
