6. SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES AND REFUND POLICY
6.1 Subscribers must pay certain charges in order to receive the relevant subscription Service (unless we agree otherwise for a trial period). In most cases, details of applicable charges can be found on the specific Sites relating to the relevant subscription Service. Where charges are not published on a Site, the applicable charges will be as agreed between you and us. All payments (including any applicable taxes) must be made in any currency that we may specify. We may direct you to make payments to another Group Company or third party payment agent. If we (or our designated agent) do not receive payment for any charges due, we may immediately suspend your rights in relation to the relevant Service (including any relevant Site and/or Content). You are responsible for the payment of all charges associated with the use of the Service, Site and/or Content using your user name and password.
6.2 If we cancel your rights in relation to any subscription Service in accordance with Clause 2.5(b) below, unless you are or have been in breach of these Terms, we shall refund you on a pro rata basis any subscription charges you have paid in advance (for the relevant cancelled subscription) which relate to any unexpired part of the subscription period at the date of cancellation. You will still be responsible for any fees or other charges incurred by you until the cancellation of your rights in relation to the relevant subscription Service.
6.3 If you cancel your subscription to any Service in accordance with Clause 2.4 below prior to the end of the subscription period:
(a) subject to clause 1.3(c) below, you shall be entitled to a refund on a pro rata basis of any subscription charges you have paid in advance for any complete months remaining of the subscription period at the date of cancellation beyond the Minimum Term;
(b) we shall deduct from the refund due an administration fee of £100, US$150 or €150 (depending on the relevant currency of payment); and
(c) if you were granted any discount on the full value of the subscription charges for the subscription period, we may recalculate the value of the Minimum Term of the subscription period on the basis that no discount was applied to such Minimum Term.
6.4 Without prejudice, the parts of the Sites showing Services or other products and services for purchase are intended as advertisements only and shall not constitute offers to sell those Services, products or services by us, our Sponsors or any of our divisions. All advertised prices for such products or services are subject to change without notice.

For the avoidance of doubt, where applicable law does require the retention of certain Content beyond the 30-day period, you agree that it shall only be retained to the extent required under such law and shall not be used for commercial purposes.
7.7 Cancellation of your access to and use of any Site and Content and/or your receipt of any Service on these Terms (including, without limitation, any registration or subscription), shall not affect our right to receive any outstanding sums due to us at the date of cancellation, which sums shall be payable within fifteen (15) days of such cancellation.
