11 Subscriptions; Charges on Your Billing Account
Radar does not make a charge to a label/artist in the event that it employs a director and does not charge a further fee or take commission from a director who has secured work from the provision of the Service.
General. The fees payable by directors in respect of the Service shall be those fees as set out on the website from time to time. We reserve the right to vary the fees in accordance with these terms and conditions.
Radar bills you through an online account (your "Billing Account") for use of the Service. You agree to pay Radar all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorise Radar to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method") for the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. Radar reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.
Recurring Billing. Most subscription plans to the Service consist of an initial period, for which there is a one time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. Radar may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) without further authorisation from you, until you provide prior notice (confirmed in writing upon request by Radar) that you have terminated this authorisation or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Radar reasonably could act. To terminate your authorisation or change your payment method email firstname.lastname@example.org
Current Information Required. You must provide current, complete and accurate information for your billing account. You must promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date), and you must promptly notify Radar if your payment method is cancelled (e.g. for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorised disclosure or use of your user name or password. Changes to such information can be made by emailing email@example.com. If you fail to provide Radar any of the foregoing information, you agree that Radar may continue charging you for any use of the service under your billing account unless you have terminated your subscription for the service (confirmed by you in writing upon request by Radar).
Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method (the "Payment Method Provider"). If Radar does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to pay all amounts due on your Billing Account upon demand.
Change in Amount Authorised. You agree that Radar may accumulate charges incurred and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each billing cycle.
Auto-renewal. Your Radar subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same (or, at our discretion, shorter) duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate. To change or resign your subscription at any time, either unsubscribe from your profile or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you resign, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you won’t be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
Reaffirmation of Authorisation. Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that Radar is authorised to charge your Payment Method. Radar may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive Radar's right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the Service.
It is the subscriber's responsibility to manage their own subscriptions and ensure their subscription does not renew if it is not wanted.
As an aid, but not a substitution for this self-management responsibility, all subscribers are sent an email 7 days before renewal, alerting the subscriber to imminent renewal. It is the subscriber's responsibility to ensure they receive emails from Radar.
However all requests for manual cancellation by admins will be honoured and carried out free of charge.
The following rules apply to late cancellation refunds:
- Refund request up to 48 hours following re-subscription, £10 UKP administration fee will be deducted from the refund.
- Refund request between 48 to 72 hours following re-subscription, £15 UKP administration fee or the full subscription amount, whichever is the lesser, will be deducted from the refund.
- Refund request after 72 hours following re-subscription, no refund will be given.
It might be useful to note, as we sometimes get emails stating cancellation was made before a renewal, it is very easy for Radar admins to identify whether this is true.
12 Our Liability
