or from any third party application store (respectively, Applications
These terms and conditions also apply to any of the services
accessible through any Application, unless separate or additional terms apply,

BY DOWNLOADING, ACCESSING AND/OR USING ANY APPLICATION OR
DOWNLOAD, YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND
ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY CONSTITUTE A LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT BETWEEN US AND YOU
(AND, IF RELEVANT, ANY ORGANISATION ON WHOSE BEHALF YOU ARE ACTING). IF YOU

We reserve the right to change the terms of this EULA from
time to time by changing them on the Website and notifying you (with the
updated terms being displayed on-screen or with a link to the updated terms)
when you next start the Application or download a new Download. These terms and
conditions were last updated on 5th May 2015.
Applications and Downloads may only be downloaded, accessed
and used on a device owned or controlled by you and running the relevant
operating system for which the Application or Download concerned was designed,
so you must make sure you have a compatible device which meets all the necessary
technical specifications to enable you to download any Application or Download
you wish to download and to access and use each downloaded Application and
Applications (or upgrades), Downloads and optional "in-App"
purchases (for example, of certain features, functions or content) you download
are made available to you immediately the download is complete and you
acknowledge and agree that this is the case and that, therefore (subject to any
cancellation right that the terms of service of the relevant third party
application store may allow you), you will have no right to change your mind
and cancel under the Consumer Contracts Regulations (sometimes known as a
‘cooling off’ right) once the download has started.
You will be assumed to have obtained permission from the
owner of any device that is controlled, but not owned, by you to download an
Application or Download to that device. You accept responsibility, in
accordance with this EULA, for all access to, and use of, any Application or
Download by you on any device, whether or not it is owned by you.
You acknowledge that the mobile service provider for the
device to which you download, or on which you access or use, any Application or
Download may charge for internet access (including mobile data usage) on that
We may, from time to time, restrict download of an
Application or Download from the Website or access to certain features,
functions or content of, or services accessible through, a downloaded
Application or Download to users who have registered with us. You are not
obliged to register with us, but if you do not do so, you may be unable to download
the relevant Application or Download from the Website or use the applicable
features, functions or content of, or access the applicable services through,
the relevant downloaded Application or Download (as the case may be). You must
ensure that any registration details you provide are accurate.
If you choose, or you are provided with, a log-on ID (such
as a username and password or other identifier) for accessing or using any
Application or Download, you must treat such information as confidential and
must not reveal it to anyone else. You are responsible for all activities that
occur under your log-on ID and must notify us immediately of any unauthorised
use of which you become aware. We reserve the right to disable any log-on ID,
at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the
provisions of this EULA or if any details you provide for the purposes of registering
as a user prove to be false.
We cannot and do not guarantee the continuous, uninterrupted
or error-free operability of any Application or Download or that any
Application or Download will respond at a certain speed (since this depends on
a number of factors outside our control).
The downloading of paid-for Applications (or upgrades),
Downloads and optional "in-App" purchases will require you to pay a
fee, the amount of which will be as set out either on the Website or on the
third party application store from which you download the relevant Application
(or upgrade) or Download or, in the case of "in-App" purchases,
within the relevant Application (as the case may be).
Certain Applications (or upgrades), Downloads and in-App
purchases involve a subscription (Subscription). The fee you pay gives
you access to the relevant Application, upgrade, features, functions and/or
content for the period of time selected by you from amongst the available
options indicated on the Website or the third party application store from
which you download the relevant Application (or upgrade) or Download or, in the
case of "in-App" purchases, within the relevant Application (as the
case may be). It is important to note that, at the end of this Subscription
period, your Subscription will automatically renew for an equivalent period
(and continue to do so), unless you alter your Subscription renewal settings in
accordance with the instructions to be found on the Website or the relevant
third party application store.
You may cancel your Subscription at any time on 24 hours
notice, however, where such notice is not given at least 24 hours before the
end of the current Subscription period, your Subscription will not be cancelled
until the end of the next Subscription period and you will be charged for that
next Subscription period.
Subscription charges are set out on the Website.
Payments for paid-for Applications (or upgrades), Downloads
and optional "in-App" purchases are made either via your itunes
account or, if you download from the Website, through our payment gateway
provider, Stripe. If pament is via Stripe, you will be providing credit or
debit card information directly to Stripe which operates a secure server to
process payment details, encrypting your credit/debit card information and
authorising payment. Information which you supply to Stripe is not within our
Where you pay to download any paid-for Application (or
upgrade), Download or in-App purchase, we warrant that it will substantially
comply with the description provided by us at the point of download and that any
services we provide through it will be provided with reasonable care and skill.
We may make available a 30 day free trial of the

to enter payment details (either via a Stripe account if you sign up via the
Website or via your itunes account, as applicable), in order to register for a

of the Free Trial unless you log in to your account and cancel the Subscription
before the end of the Free Trial. By providing your payment details to start

Certain third party platform providers with whose devices
and/or operating systems the Applications and Downloads have been designed to
be compatible oblige us to include certain additional provisions in this EULA. These
are set out at the end of this EULA under Additional third party terms. These
provisions come from the relevant third party platform providers, not us.
Third party application stores are operated by the relevant
third party platform providers and/or their affiliates. You must comply with
all applicable terms of service, rules and policies applying to any third party
application store from which you download any Application or Download. We are
not responsible for these stores or (with the exception of the Applications and

Downloads at all times.

Downloads and in any content of any Application or Download (including text,
graphics, software, photographs and other images, videos, sound, trade marks

expressly set out here, nothing in this EULA gives you any rights in respect of
any intellectual property owned by us or our licensors and you acknowledge that
you do not acquire any ownership rights by downloading any Application or
Download or any content from any Application or Download.
The Applications may contain code, commonly referred to as
open source software, which is distributed under any of the many known
variations of open source licence terms, including terms which allow the free
distribution and modification of the relevant software's source code and/or
which require all distributors to make such source code freely available upon
request, including any contributions or modifications made by such distributor
(collectively, Open Source Software). Please note that, to the extent
that any Application contains any Open Source Software, that element only is
licensed to you under the relevant licence terms of the applicable third party
licensor (Open Source Licence Terms) and not under this EULA, and you
accept and agree to be bound by such Open Source Licence Terms. A copy of the
source code for any Open Source Software contained in any Application and the
relevant Open Source Licence Terms will be made available to you upon request.
You agree that downloading, accessing and use of any
Application or Download that is made available for download free of charge are
on an 'as is' and 'as available' basis and at your sole risk.
We reserve the right to change the design, features and/or
functionality of any Application or Download by making the updated Application or
Download available for you to download or, where your device settings permit
it, by automatic delivery of updates. You are not obliged to download any
updated Application, but we may cease to provide and/or update content to prior
versions of Applications and, depending on the nature of the update, in some
circumstances you may not be able to continue using an Application until you
have downloaded the updated version.
Where an Application makes content available, you
acknowledge that such content may be updated at any time. We reserve the right
to cease to provide and/or update content to any Application, with or without
notice to you, if we need to do so for security, legal or, unless that content
is part of a subscription you have paid for, any other reasons.
Whilst we try to make sure that content made available by
any Application or Download consisting of information of which we are the
source is correct, you acknowledge that certain Applications and Downloads may
make content available which is derived from a number of sources, for which we
are not responsible. In all cases, information made available by any
Application or Download is not intended to amount to authority or advice on
which reliance should be placed. You should check with us or the relevant
information source before acting on any such information.

representation or warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, currency,
correctness, reliability, integrity, quality, fitness for purpose or
originality of any content of any Application or Download and, to the fullest
extent permitted by law, all implied warranties, conditions or other terms of
any kind are hereby excluded. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we

products or services that you may find useful or interesting. We are not
responsible for the content of these sites or for anything provided by them and

Nothing in this EULA shall limit or exclude our liability to
death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
other liability that may not, under English law, be limited or excluded.
Subject to this, if you are a consumer and not a business
user, in no event shall we be liable to you for any business losses, and if you
