SECTION 6 - TRIAL OFFER, AUTOMATIC ENROLLMENT AND PAYMENT, AND CANCELLATION
Where we offer you a free trial of the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, such free trial will start immediately after your registration and continue for the free trial offer period as indicated on the Website at the time you register. Free trial subscriptions are only available to new subscribers of the DAN THORPE ACOUSTIC ACADEMY and for the limited periods as set out on the Website. Previous subscribers or those subscribers who have already benefited from a free trial subscription to Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy do not qualify for a further free trial period.
We will email a reminder that your trial is ending at least 7 days prior to you being charged. If you do not want to continue your subscription after your free trial comes to an end, you must contact us at least 24 hours before your free trial period ends by submitting a cancellation request to us via our support email address email@example.com, or by cancelling your free trial through your Account Dashboard, as detailed here. If you do not contact us at least 24 hours before your free trial period ends to cancel, your subscription will automatically continue and the payment card that you provided at the time of enrolment online will be charged the full DAN THORPE ACOUSTIC ACADEMY monthly membership subscription rate provided at the time of enrolment each month until you cancel.
For monthly subscriptions (including subscriptions for services), we require at least ten 24 hours notice of cancellation by email. If you provide such notice less than 24 hours notice before the first day of your next subscription month, your credit card may still be charged. You will not be entitled to prorate your last month’s use, nor will you be entitled to any refund for any payments to Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy . For six-monthly and annual subscriptions, we require at least ten 7 days’ notice of cancellation by email. If you provide such notification less than seven (7) days before the first day of your next subscription period, your credit card may still be charged. If you cancel before the end of your subscription period, you will not be entitled to a refund but we will provide you with a credit towards other Dan Thorpe Guitar Limited services.
SECTION 7 – SUBSCRIPTION TERMS AND AUTOMATIC PAYMENT
A Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy user is responsible for paying all sums due to Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy in connection with their monthly subscription in accordance with these Terms. The first fee payable in accordance with these Terms is due when the user account is set up and payment of the monthly fee is a condition of access, or after your free trial ends and you have not cancelled the automatic subscription with us. Every calendar month, your account will be charged up to the subscription fee plus applicable tax for the following month’s subscription, together with any other fees for the following month’s subscription plus any accumulated charges for the past period (collectively, “Fees”). Failure by the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy user to use any of the services available through the service provided by Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy does not relieve the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy user of their payment obligations under these Terms.
Potential users can pay by credit card or debit card. Payment details shall be collected by us through our secure financial data collection mechanism. You acknowledge and agree that we hold data relating to the transaction, including the last four digits and the expiration date of the card used to purchase the products or services together with details on when payment is due. You further acknowledge and agree that payments are due on a recurring basis in accordance with the payment terms for the specific service purchased (unless the subscription is cancelled in accordance with these Terms) and therefore authorize the automatic payment collection terms applicable to that specific service (e.g., on a monthly basis and for a specific amount). If for whatever reason, we are unable to process your monthly subscription payment, we may in our sole discretion, charge you a lesser amount to “pause” your account and retain your information as we attempt to contact you for updated payment information.
Dan Thorpe Guitar Limited reserves the right to immediately terminate a user’s account and/or service for any unpaid (in whole or part) period of the subscription (with or without notice). Termination of service in no way relieves or excuses the user from any obligation to pay outstanding charges or expenses.
In addition to any Fees, Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy may also charge applicable value added or other tax.
SECTION 8 – SHIPPING FEES
Unless otherwise stated on the Website at the time of purchase, if we ship you a physical product, we reserve the right to add applicable shipping and handling fees to your order. Unless otherwise stated, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to fulfil your order within a reasonable time after receipt of your properly completed and verified order. Accurate shipping address and phone number information is required. Although we may provide delivery or shipment timeframes or dates, such dates are good-faith estimates and are subject to change. If your order will be delayed, we will contact you at the email address you provided when placing your order. If we are unable to contact you or you would like to cancel your order, we will cancel the order and refund the full amount charged. We shall not be liable for any loss, damage, cost, or expense related to any delay in shipment or delivery caused by any third party carrier or other delivery service not owned or controlled by us. The risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to any third party carrier.
