Limited Warranties

10. p4c.com will use its reasonable skill and care in making the Site available to you and in ensuring its continuing availability. However, because of the number of sources from which p4c.com obtains the Content and because of the nature of the Internet, p4c.com does not give you any other warranties. In particular, you should not take the accuracy or availability of the information for granted and p4c.com makes no warranty that the Site is free from infection by viruses or anything else that has contaminating or destructive properties.

Limitation of Liability

11. In respect of the Content which is available free on the Site, p4c.com will use its reasonable endeavours to resolve faults but because this content is free you agree that p4c.com will not be liable for any losses you may incur as a result of your use or non-use of that Content. With regard to the Subscription Services, you agree that your exclusive remedy (in respect of any claim for breach of contract, negligence or otherwise) shall be limited to correction of the relevant Subscription Service or, at your option, a refund of the amount you have paid to p4c.com to receive the relevant Subscription Service less any reasonable allowance for your receipt of the functioning service.

12. Except where we have expressly agreed otherwise, neither you nor p4c.com will be responsible for any losses that the other suffers as a result of a breach of this Agreement except those losses which are a foreseeable consequence of the breach. Neither party will be responsible for indirect losses which happen as a side-effect of the main loss or damage and which are not foreseeable by p4c.com and you (such as loss of profits or loss of data).

Privacy Policy

13. The information that you provide about yourself to p4c.com will only be used by p4c.com in accordance with its Privacy Policy (see below). Please read the Privacy Policy carefully and if you have any questions please email steve@p4c.com.

Changes

14. p4c.com is continually seeking to improve the Site and services offered. p4c.com reserves the right, at its discretion, to make changes to any part of the Site. In respect of any Subscription Services, we will ensure that any changes do not materially decrease the functionality of those services.

15. In respect of non-Subscription Services, p4c.com may change or add to this Agreement as a result of its policy of updating and improving the Site or for security, legal or regulatory reasons. p4c.com will give you notice of any changes or additions. If you do not agree to be bound by those changes, you should not use the Site any further after receiving notice. Such changes will not affect any contract that relates to ongoing Subscription Services that you have with p4c.com at the time of the changes.

Links

16. The Site contains links to other web sites and resources (either directly or through frames) and, where possible, p4c.com will make clear where such links are being made. Independent third parties provide these sites and p4c.com is not responsible and shall not be liable for the availability or content of these outside resources.

General

17. In respect of the free parts of the Site, there is no specific time limit applying to your access and use. However, p4c.com reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access and use of the free parts of the Site at any time. It may exercise the right with or without notice.

18. You may not assign, sub-licence or otherwise transfer this Agreement or your rights of access to the Site.

21. English law will apply to this Agreement and both you and p4c.com agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.

PART B: SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

22. p4c.com offers some services for which it charges a fee (“Subscription Services”). Details of what is included in those services (and the fee payable) are described in the relevant area of the p4c.com web site (the “Site”). Clause 23 The Terms below sets out provisions which are specific to certain Subscription Services. Part A (above) The General Terms also applies to Subscription Services and include certain exclusions and limitations on p4c.com’s and your liabilities under this Agreement. If you have any questions, please email steve@p4c.com.

The Terms: Provision of All Paid-For Subscription Services

You must provide p4c.com with accurate and complete registration information, including (if applicable) valid credit card details. On registration, you will choose to be assigned a user name and password (“ID”). It is your responsibility to update p4c.com of any changes to that information (including your email address) by emailing membership@p4c.com. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID, you must notify p4c.com immediately by emailing membership@p4c.com. p4c.com will try to process your subscription promptly but does not guarantee that any Subscription Service will be available to you by any specified time. By submitting your order you are agreeing that we may process your subscription and begin the service — once we have done so, you will not be able to cancel the order and receive a refund of the fee paid.

Each subscription for any Subscription Service is solely for use by you. p4c.com reserves the right to monitor usage of the Subscription Services using your ID. In the event that unauthorised users are accessing any Subscription Service using your ID then, without prejudice to its other rights and remedies, p4c.com reserves the right to charge you an amount equal to the charges which would have been payable had each unauthorised user subscribed for the Subscription Services themselves.

If p4c.com reasonably believes that your ID is being used in any way which is not permitted by this Agreement, p4c.com reserves the right to suspend access rights immediately on giving notice to you and to block access from your ID until the issue has been resolved. p4c.com may terminate this Agreement by giving notice to you if you are in breach of this Agreement and in such case, p4c.com is not obliged to refund you any fees. p4c.com may terminate this Agreement if it discontinues a Subscription Service, in which case it will give you reasonable notice and you are entitled to a refund of that part of any fee which relates to the unexpired period of the relevant service.

Any other refunds will be given at the discretion of the Company Management.

At p4c.com we collect information about our users for two main reasons:
