c. You agree to promptly install and use any ‘updates’ we may issue to you (an update is a permanent fix to a known problem or due to change to legislation released by us from time to time). The terms of
your licence for the software and any other terms we supply with an update and/or an upgrade will apply to that update and/or upgrade (as the case may be).
d. Access to support and our website.
We cannot guarantee that the support will meet your needs or that we will be able to fix any problem with the software which has arisen because you have used the software in a way not allowed by the
relevant software licence agreement, this agreement or by us in writing (for example where you have allowed a third party to configure or otherwise adapt the software), or if you have not followed our advice or recommendations from time to time or if you have not promptly installed any updates or upgrades (as appropriate) we may issue to you. We will do everything reasonably possible to make sure that the sections of our website which contain business information are free from viruses. However, we cannot guarantee this.

Unless this agreement says otherwise, we are not bound by any other contract terms, warranties or other type of promise. If, under any law, a particular term, warranty or other type of promise relating to the support would automatically be included in this agreement, we will only be bound by that term, warranty or promise to the extent set by law.
5. How you or we may end this agreement or suspend the support services
a. We may end this agreement at any time on giving you at least seven days’ notice and if we do, we will refund to you such proportion of the subscription fee you have paid for the year in question as is appropriate to the unexpired period of the duration of this agreement.
b. You may end this agreement at any time by giving to us at least seven days’ notice during your subscription period by calling us on 0844 414 2547. If you do, you will not be entitled to any refund of
your subscription fees and if you have not paid all of your subscription fees for that subscription period, you must also pay them to us immediately. If you owe us any other amounts in relation
to this agreement at the time you end this agreement, you must also pay them to us immediately.
c. This agreement will automatically and immediately end if you become bankrupt (or something similar happens) or your business cannot pay its debts or stops trading, or if any finance arrangement relating to the support has ended for any reason without you paying the full amount of that finance.

If the matter is put right in that time, no further action will be taken. If it is not put right in that time, the person who discovered the situation can then end this agreement by giving the other written notice that this agreement will immediately end. If this agreement is terminated because of something we have done or not done, we will refund to you such proportion of the subscription fee you have paid for the year in question as is appropriate to the unexpired period of the duration of this agreement. In all other circumstances, we will not give you a refund.
e. We may also end this agreement if you fail to pay any amount you owe to us within seven days of the due date, or, alternatively we may stop providing the support services to you until you have paid us those outstanding amounts.
6. Our liability and responsibility to you if something goes wrong
a. Our liability (including for negligence) in any year under this agreement will be limited to paying you an amount equal to the total of 125% of all fees you paid for the support in that year.
b. You are better placed to understand the risks to your business that may occur as a result of you using the support. Accordingly, we will not be responsible for any of the following, even if we knew or should have known there was a possibility you could experience the problem: financial or similar loss of any kind, including, for example, loss of profits, business, estimated savings or goodwill, however the loss is caused; any interruption to your business or damage to information, however that interruption or damage is caused (particularly because you should maintain regular backups of your own information); loss or damage which we could not have reasonably known about at the time you entered into this agreement; losses you suffer as a result of using any advice we give you via the business advice helpline or, if we let you use that advice to support your clients, using that advice to support your clients if (i) you do not promptly give that advice to your clients (where appropriate); or (ii) you or your clients (where appropriate) do not promptly follow that advice; or (iii) you do not provide us with all facts relevant to the issue that is the subject of that advice. (If we let you use that advice to support your clients, nothing in this agreement will create a legally binding relationship between us and your clients in relation to that advice); losses you suffer as a result of using the support, other than as described in this agreement and the relevant documents. We recommend that you consider obtaining insurance cover if you believe that you could experience anything that we have told you that we will not be responsible for.
c. Nothing in this agreement will prevent or limit your or our liability for: fraud; death of or personal injury to any person as a result of our negligence; or any legally binding promise, automatically given by law, that you can have the licence or that you can use the software without someone else claiming that you cannot.
d. Your and our responsibilities under this agreement are reasonable because they reflect that: we cannot control how, and for what purposes, you use the support we have not developed the
support specifically for you; and although we follow good industry practice, it is not economically possible for us to carry out all the tests necessary to make sure there are no problems with the support.
7. How we use information about you
We will use any information you give us under this agreement to:
meet our obligations under this agreement or any other agreement we have with anyone who licenses us (our licensors), or our subcontractors; contact you to see if you would like to take part in our customer research; contact you about our other products and services and those of others which we think you will be interested in.
(If we do contact you in this way, we will try to speak to the relevant person in your organisation, and we may contact you directly, or use other organisations which we have hired to contact you for us.) We may give information to other companies in our group of companies, our licensors and ontractors, and other organisations described in relevant documents. For example, we may give information to the following:
Your software supplier (if you have one)
The person or company (if any) providing you with finance
Our training providers
Companies which we use to help us send you post and other communications research
If you give us information which could give away the identity of an individual, you are agreeing that we can use it as described above. If at any time you do not want us to use such information in that way,
please call us on 0844 414 2547 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

a. Any supplier or business partner from whom you buy your support (or your licence to the software) does not have any authority or right to enter into any contract or provide any guarantee on our
behalf. We are not responsible for any changes these organisations have made to the software or for anything they do or fail to do.

if the wording that cannot be enforced could be enforced if part of it is deleted, we will both treat the relevant part of the wording as if it is deleted.
d. If you or we fail to, or delay in, exercising any rights under this agreement, that will not mean that those rights cannot be exercised in the future.

or written) between us for such use.
