Terms and Conditions

Subscription Services and Temporary Access Passess

unless you purchase a subscription or temporary access pass to use SatShare.co.uk then your usage rights will be limited as set out at http://satshare.co.uk . You may obtain broader usage rights by purchasing an SatShare.co.uk subscription or temporary access pass. We currently offer two levels of SatShare.co.uk subscription called Standard and Premium. In certain countries we also offer a bundled subscription which allows you to purchase an SatShare.co.uk subscription together with a subscription to buy the Financial Times newspaper (what we call a "Bundled Subscription"). SatShare reserves the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that it makes available to different categories of user which means that we may increase or reduce the content and services that are only available to paying subscribers or temporary access pass holders from time to time.

 

Contract formation:

SatShare will try to process your subscription or temporary access pass promptly but does not guarantee that your subscription or temporary access pass will be activated by any specified time. By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a subscription or temporary access pass. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your payment details and email address, at which point we will provide you with access to your subscription or temporary access pass. SatShare reserves the right to reject any offer in its discretion, for any or no reason.

Payment details:

when you subscribe or purchase a temporary access pass you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details you promise that you are entitled to purchase a subscription or temporary access pass using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorization or any authorization is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription or temporary access pass and may in suspicious circumstances contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities/other appropriate third parties. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms and conditions we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment, unless it has expired in which case we will contact you. If you buy a subscription or temporary access pass using a corporate credit card than we will treat your subscription or temporary access pass as being for the benefit of both you and the relevant company.

Pricing:

the subscription price and temporary access pass price will be made clear to you on our sign-up pages or otherwise during the sign-up process and may vary from time to time or by country. You agree to pay the fees at the rates notified to you at the time you take out your subscription or purchase your temporary access pass. For certain subscriptions you can take out either an annual or monthly (or other frequency we offer) subscription. Other subscription services may only require a one-off payment. You can also take out any other fixed term or payment frequency that we may offer from time to time. SatShare will charge you in British Pounds Sterling, United States Dollars, or Euros, depending on the service and your country of residence. You may also have to pay any applicable local taxes. Please click here for further tax information. Eligibility for any discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. We will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.

Pricing errors:

if we incorrectly state a price to you whether online or otherwise, we are not obliged to provide you with a subscription or temporary access pass at that price, even if we have mistakenly accepted your offer to buy a subscription or temporary access pass at that price, and reserve the right to subsequently notify you of any pricing error. If we do this, you may cancel the subscription or temporary access pass without any obligation to us and we will refund you any money you have paid us in full or you may pay the correct price. If you refuse to exercise either of these choices then we may cancel your subscription or temporary access pass and will refund you any money you have paid us in full. We will always act in good faith in determining whether a genuine pricing error has occurred.

Other costs:

in addition to any subscription or temporary access pass fees you pay, you are responsible for paying any internet connection or other telecommunications charges that you may incur by accessing SatShare.co.uk or using the services available on it. For example, if you use any of our mobile services then your network operator may charge you for data or messaging services.

Trials:

we may from time to time and at our discretion make a trial available to users, in which case we will only charge you for your subscription with effect from the expiry of the trial period. No more than one trial per subscriber is allowed in any twelve month period.

Renewals:

if you chose to pay monthly, your subscription will continue until you tell us that you no longer wish to receive it, in which case you will stop paying the monthly fees. Please see the "Cancellations by you" section below for details of how to cancel your monthly subscription. If you chose to pay annually, unless you notify us before the end of your annual subscription period that you no longer wish to receive it, your annual subscription will renew for another year. We will charge the subscription using the same card or other payment method that you previously used. We will notify you in advance of any changes to the price in your subscription that will apply upon renewal.

Cancellations by you and refunds:

unless you cancel your subscription before we have started providing any part of it to you (in which case we will provide you with a full refund), then you agree that once we have started providing any part of your subscription to you, you do not have any right to cancel your subscription or any part of it until the end of your then current subscription period. This means that you are not entitled to a refund once we have started providing any part of your subscription to you, except in the very limited circumstances which are referred to in these terms and conditions. Although you may notify us of your intention to cancel at any time, such notice will only take effect at the end of your then current subscription period. You may notify us of your wish to cancel your subscription by contacting our Customer Services team at info@satshare.co.uk

Cancellations by us:

SatShare reserves the right to suspend or terminate your subscription if you breach these terms and conditions, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. You will not be entitled to any refund in these circumstances. If however we terminate or suspend your subscription for any other reason and/or permanently cease publishing SatShare.co.uk , the SatShare Content or cease to provide subscription services then, unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will provide you with a pro rata refund to your credit card, which means that we will refund you with any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your subscription.
