Alternatively, we may offer you an extension to your subscription without charge in the event that you decide not to end the contract.

We will not charge you for our service during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending our service we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 12.5).
8. Your rights to end the contract
8.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
(a) If our service has been described incorrectly, you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get some or all of your money back), see clause 11;
(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 8.2;

(b) there is a risk that supply of our service may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(c) we have suspended supply of our service for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 1 month; or

For most our services bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund if you are dealing with us as a consumer. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms.
8.4 When you don't have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of our services, once these have been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running.
8.5 How long do I have to change my mind. You have 14 days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your application for membership. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind.
8.6 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 8.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end the contract in these circumstances, just contact us to let us know. The contract will not end until at least 1 complete calendar month has expired after the day on which you contact us. We will refund any advance payment you have made for our service which will not be provided to you. For example, if you tell us you want to end the contract on 4 February we will continue to supply our service until 31 March. We will only charge you for supplying our service up to 31 March and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the supply of our service after 31 March.
