You agree to the terms and conditions outlined in this terms of use agreement ("Agreement") with respect to the Site. By using this Site, you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following terms of this Agreement. Please review the following terms carefully. If you do not agree to these terms, you have no right from RSDT to obtain information from or otherwise use this Site. In the event you fail to use this Site in accordance with the terms below we reserve our right to take legal action or to report any mis-use to the relevant authorities.

This Agreement constitutes the entire and only agreement between us and you, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, representations, warranties and understandings with respect to the Site, the content and computer programs provided by or through the Site, and the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement may be amended at any time by us without specific notice to you. The latest Agreement will be posted on the Site, and you should review this Agreement prior to each use of the Site.

Upon receipt of all relevant information provided by you at when you apply to use our service, we will provide you with access to your personal credit report and credit score ("Credit Reporting Services"). Please note we are not a credit reference agency. RSDT submits requests to our respected third party partner, Callcredit Consumer Limited in order to provide the Credit Reporting Services. Callcredit Consumer Limited provides us with data that we use to provide our services to you.

In order to access the Credit Reporting Service a monthly fee, as communicated at the time of your application, will be payable by Direct Debit to RS Data Tech Ltd. Depending on your bank, the description of our charge may vary on your statement.

An initial payment at the time of application (if required) will be payable immediately or on the date specified in our offer to you (e.g. 14 days after sign up) and thereafter the monthly fee in the amount of £19.95 will be payable on the same day of each month as our original billing. Your card may also incur a pre-authorization charge in the amount of £0.00, £1.00 or an amount equal to your recurring monthly subscription price.

A member may cancel or terminate this agreement at any time by calling us at 0330 124 3541 or by notifying us in writing at: Terminations, RS Data Tech, Ltd., PO Box 5474 Manchester M61 0NB

A refund may be requested by the member at any time by contacting us at the above referenced number or by mailing us at the above mentioned address. You can cancel UkCreditRatings.com services withing 14 days after the day when the contract for the applicable UkCreditRatings.coms service ends. We have set out when the UKCreditRatings.com services begin starting in paragraph 13 below. If you cancel within the 14 day period and you require a refund, you are entitled to a refund of the amounts you paid for those services. However, we will deduct an amount to cover the days of service you received before the time we were informed of your decision to cancel. Refunds will be given in the cases of fraud, and/or in the event of our partial or total non-performance or inadequate performance of failure to deliver the agreed upon services to the member (i.e site failure or service failure). If the member uses the services (i.e. signs up using a credit and or debit card and validates themselves) then services have been determined and agreed to have been rendered and therefore except in the circumstances referenced above, you forfeit the ability to demand a full refund for services rendered. For avoidance of doubt as soon as a sign up occurs for the membership, services have been delivered for that day and month and every day and month thereafter until membership is cancelled. Please note that if we have completed any of the UKCreditRatings.com services before you cancel the service, then you will not get a refund. To meet this cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to contact us to cancel before the 14 day cancellation period has expired. We will pay the refund without undue delay and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel. The refund will be paid using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction or by mail and you will not incur any fees as a result of the refund.

We reserve the right to terminate this Agreement (i.e. cancel Membership) upon giving you one week's notice (save for where there are serious grounds for doing so without notice). In the event of this occurring we will only credit your credit card or debit card in the amount equivalent to the remaining days left in the month i.e. pro-rata. For avoidance of doubt we will not refund your card for the entire month(s) charges or previous months charges because the service was being used and active. Once your membership is terminated we will not be required to continue to provide the said services to you after the termination of your membership.

You may terminate this Agreement (and cancellation of Membership) by giving us one week's notice.

Termination of this Agreement (and cancellation of Membership) will be effective within 1 week of the receipt by us of the Member's cancellation request or our notice to the Member.

Upon termination of membership and if the termination is within the Trial Period then no Membership Fees will have been payable or will be payable by the Member, and no Membership Fees will be re-credited to the Member's account. However if the termination is at any time after the Trial Period, then the Member will not owe any further Membership Fees in addition to those Membership Fees that are already due (and the Member will not be entitled to a refund of any past Membership Fees charged to the Member's account, (save for cases where there has been inadequate performance by us); and entitlement to access, make use of or benefit from Membership (including the Credit Reporting Service) shall cease.

MEMBERSHIP FEES AND CONTINUOUS PAYMENT AUTHORITY

When you sign up and agree to be a Member of our services, you provide us with a continuous payment authority ("CPA") so that we can collect repayments automatically from your bank account using the debit card or the credit card that you nominate for this purpose (Please see below for further information concerning CPA) .

A Member may be entitled to a Trial Period of Membership, details of which are located on the website you were shown or marketed to at the time of your initial sign up to be a member in our services. A member can cancel at any time in accordance with our "terms & conditions" located in the above paragraph or the link at the bottom of the said website with the link displaying refund policy.

After the Trial Period, the monthly Membership Fee of £19.95 is payable in advance and will be automatically charged at the end of the Trial Period or on Renewal by use of CPA.

If the attempt for the charge of the agreed upon Membership Fee at the end of the Trial Period or at Renewal is unsuccessful we shall make immediate attempts on that day to contact you by phone, email and/or text message and find out why you have been unable to meet your Membership Fee obligations.

If we have been unable to determine a method for you to pay your membership fee we shall use ("CPA") to make up to five (5) additional attempts for the full membership fee. For avoidance of doubt we will use commercially reasonable efforts to use the following schedule in an effort to allow you to fulfill your agreement to pay the membership fee for the services rendered. :

- one attempt will be made on the first Friday following the end of the Trial Period;

- one attempt will be made on each of the four successive Fridays following the attempt set out in the previous bullet point.

Throughout the period referred to in the above paragraphs your access to the Service may be suspended pending receipt of the Membership Fee.

The attempts set out in the above paragraphs will continue until payment in full has been received, an alternative payment plan has been agreed or the limit of 5 further attempts has been reached at which point the Membership will be terminated.

To cancel this CPA you may ask us to cancel it by using the contact details found in the above paragraphs. Please be aware that if you do cancel you will still owe any outstanding Membership Fees as agreed and your access to the Service will be terminated. Cancellation of this CPA will be effective from the date that we receive such notification.

We may increase or decrease the Membership Fee on 30 days notice on the Website and by notice by email or letter to the Member. If the Member does not agree with any such change, the Member may terminate this Agreement by calling us at 0330 124 3541 or by notifying us in writing at: Terminations, RS Data Tech, Ltd., PO Box 5474 Manchester M61 0NB.
