2.3 When You place an order for any Subscription through the Website, We will send You an email acknowledging receipt of Your order and containing the details of Your order. Please note that this does not mean that Your order has been accepted. Your order represents an offer by You to Us to purchase the relevant Subscription from Us. Your order is accepted by Us when We send You a further email confirming such acceptance. The contract between You and Us for the sale of any Subscription through the Website will therefore be made and become binding on both You and Us when We accept Your order by e-mail. That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to You at the time that We send the e-mail to You (whether or not You receive that e-mail). We reserve the right, at any time prior to Our communicating Our acceptance to You, to refuse any order made through the Website or any part of an order made through the Website, or to require further or better information to enable Us to evaluate and/or process the order.
Following receipt of confirmation of Your order through the Website, We suggest You print off a copy of these Terms and Conditions and the confirmation for Your records.
2.4 The risk in any Printed Reports which You purchase and the responsibility to insure them will pass to You when the relevant Printed Reports are delivered to You.
2.5 Within ten (10) Working days following Our confirmation of Your order, We will send to You a copy of all Printed Reports to which You have subscribed. These shall comprise those which have been produced by Us up to the year of Your Subscription (as well as any monthly or weekly parts issued to date if You purchase Your Subscription after the start of a year). During the year of Your Subscription, We will send to You all monthly or weekly parts of the Reports produced in the year of Your Subscription. For clarity, all Subscription prices quoted on the Website are for a calendar year.
2.6 For the avoidance of doubt, unless stated otherwise the Printed Reports and/or Online Reports shall include all archives of the relevant Reports since the date of their first publication.
ORDERS PLACED OTHER THAN THROUGH OUR WEBSITE
2.7 If You purchase any Subscription from Us other than through the Website, the provisions of Paragraph 2.8 shall apply.
2.8 Where You place an order for the purchase of any Subscription other than through the Website, You agree that each order shall constitute an offer by You to purchase the relevant Subscription subject to these Terms and Conditions. Such offer shall be deemed to be accepted upon the raising of an invoice by Us to You at which point a legally binding contract between Us and You shall come into existence (the date on which this invoice is raised being the "Commencement Date"). You and We agree that each invoice We raise in connection with each order shall expressly refer in writing to these Terms and Conditions and state that the invoice incorporates by reference these Terms and Conditions. The contract formed between Us shall consist of the Order Form and these Terms and Conditions.
3. FEES AND PAYMENT

3.6 Despite Our best efforts, some Subscription Fees listed may be incorrect. We are under no obligation to provide the Reports to You at the incorrect (lower) price, even after We have sent You a confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by You as a mis-pricing.
4. RIGHT OF CANCELLATION
4.1 If You purchase a Subscription to the Online Reports, or otherwise access the Online Reports, in each case as a consumer (in other words, where You are using the Online Reports other than for business or commercial purposes), then as long as you have not started using the Online Service You have the right, within seven (7) Business Days from the date after the date of Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, to cancel Our contract with You.
