(4)    Subscriptions

In these terms, “subscription” means a right to access the restricted areas of our website described in this Section 4, and “subscriber” means a person who has such a right by virtue of this Section 4.

Access to certain areas of our website is restricted to subscribers.  We reserve the right to restrict access to other areas of our website, or indeed our whole website, at our discretion.

You may become a subscriber by going to our registration page on the Star Student website and following the instructions of how to subscribe to our services.

You will have the opportunity to identify and correct input errors prior to ordering your subscription by following the instructions on the registration page of the website.

We will not file a copy of these terms of use specifically in relation to each subscriber and, if we update these terms of use, the version to which you originally agreed will no longer be available on our website.  For this reason, we recommend that subscribers print and file a copy of these terms of use for future reference.

These terms of use are provided in the English language only.

The subscription charges will be as set out on our website from time to time.  All subscription charges stated on the website are stated inclusive of VAT.

You must pay to us the subscription charges in respect of the first and any subsequent period of your subscription in advance, in cleared funds, in accordance with the instructions on our website.

We may vary subscription charges from time to time by posting new charges on our website.  However, such variations will not affect subscriptions that have already been paid for.

Your subscription will be activated automatically following receipt of your subscription charges in cleared funds.  Your subscription will continue for the relevant period set out on our website, subject to early termination in accordance with these terms of use.

We provide each subscriber with a login and password to enable the subscriber to access the restricted areas of our website.  You can then change your password if you want to something you find more appropriate or memorable.  Subscribers must ensure that their login and password details are kept confidential.

During the period of your subscription, you will be able to access, using the login and password details that we provide to you, your own ‘student dashboard’ area.

If you are contracting as an consumer, you may cancel a subscription at any time within 7 working days, beginning on the day after you received our acknowledge of payment of your subscription charge, providing that you have not accessed the restricted areas of the website during that period. If you cancel a subscription in accordance with this provision, you will receive a full refund of the price paid.  We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.  Your notice of cancellation should be sent to the address or email address at the end of these terms of use.

We warrant to subscribers that the subscription service will be provided with reasonable care and skill, that we will use reasonable endeavours to maintain the availability of the website (subject to scheduled maintenance) during the term of a subscription.

You acknowledge that some of the information published on this website is submitted by users, and that we do not usually review, approve or edit such information.  We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published on this website.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law we exclude all representations, warranties and conditions relating to this website and the use of this website (including, without limitation, any warranties implied by law of satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose and/or the use of reasonable care and skill).

(6)    Limitations of liability

Nothing in these terms of use (or elsewhere on our website) will exclude or limit our liability for fraud, for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or for any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

Subject to this, our liability to you in relation to the use of our website or under or in connection with these terms of use, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, will be limited as follows:

(a)    to the extent that the website and the information and services on the website are provided free-of-charge, we will not be liable for any loss or damage of any nature;

(e)    our maximum liability in relation to any event or series of related events will be limited to cost of subscription

You accept that we have an interest in limiting the personal liability of our officers and employees.  Having regard to that interest, you accept that we are a limited liability entity and agree that you will not bring any claim personally against individual officers or employees in respect of any losses you suffer in connection with the website or these terms of use.  This will not, of course, limit or exclude the liability of the company itself for the acts and omissions of our officers and employees.

You agreed to the publication of comments, reviews and/or feedback relating to you,  by others, on our website. You acknowledge that such comments, reviews and/or feedback may be critical or defamatory; and you agree that you will not hold us liable in respect of any such comments, reviews and/or feedback, irrespective of whether we are aware or ought to have been aware of such comments, reviews and/or feedback.

(7)    Indemnity

You hereby indemnify us and undertake to keep us indemnified against any losses, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including without limitation legal expenses and any amounts paid by us to a third party in settlement of a claim or dispute on the advice of our legal advisers) incurred or suffered by us arising out of any breach by you of any provision of these terms of use, or arising out of any claim that you have breached any provision of these terms of use.

8)    Breaches of these terms of use

Without prejudice to our other rights under these terms of use, if you breach these terms of use in any way, or if we reasonably suspect that you have breached these terms of use in any way, we may:

Where we suspend or prohibit or block your access to our website or a part of our website, you must not take any action to circumvent such suspension or prohibition or blocking (including without limitation creating and/or using a different account).

In addition to our rights and remedies above, if a subscriber breaches these terms of use in any way, or if we reasonably suspect that a subscriber has breached these terms of use in any way, we may cancel the subscriber's subscription.  Where we cancel your subscription for this reason, or take any other action against you under this Section, we will not refund to you the subscription charge or any element of the subscription charge you have paid.

We may also cancel subscriptions on 30 days' written notice without cause.  Where we cancel your subscription on this basis, we will refund to you all subscription charges paid by you to us in respect of any period of subscription after the date of effective termination of the subscription (which amount will be calculated by us using any reasonable methodology).
