3.2 On receipt of your order we will debit your card or process the Direct Debit payment or other electronic money transfer, or process your cheque for the price (as applicable). However, our acceptance of your offer remains subject to approval of it by us. Once a decision has been reached we will either confirm that your application for subscription has been accepted, at which point a contract will be formed between us, or notify you that we cannot accept your application. If we cannot accept your application for whatever reason we will confirm that your account has been re-credited (if applicable).

3.3 If we are unable to obtain payment authorisation from the issuer of your card or from your bank in the case of Direct Debit or other electronic payments and a subscription has already been issued to you, we will terminate the subscription and you will forfeit any benefits.

4.1 All quoted subscription fees are for a one-year subscription, set to renew automatically on an annual basis indefinitely unless cancelled.

4.2 We reserve the right to increase the price of your subscription on an annual basis if we deem it necessary. You will be informed of any fee increase by email.

5. Credit/Debit card payments

5.1 The credit/debit card information you provide us for a subscription transaction is used solely for the purpose of processing that subscription transaction. If we are unable to process payment from the credit/debit card details you have provided we will contact you immediately to verify your card details.

5.2 We strongly advise you against sending us any credit/debit card information via email. It is contrary to the rules of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) for us to accept credit/debit card payments by email and we will decline to accept payment by this means.

5.3 If you are not using your own credit/debit card to pay for the subscription, you must ask permission of the credit/debit card holder before entering payment details. When you apply for a subscription with Argyll FM, you are confirming that you have obtained the express prior permission of the credit/debit card holder.

6. Direct Debit payments

6.1 If there are any changes to the amount, date or frequency of your Direct Debit, Argyll FM will notify you 10 working days in advance of your account being debited or as otherwise agreed. If we request to collect a payment, confirmation of the amount and date will be given to you at the time of the request.

6.2 If an error has been made in the payment of your Direct Debit by us or your bank/building society, you are entitled to a full and immediate refund of the amount paid from your bank or building society. If you receive a refund you are not entitled to, you must pay it back when requested to do so by Argyll FM.

6.3 You can cancel a Direct Debit by contacting your bank or building society. Written confirmation may be required. However, cancellation of your direct debit is not the same as cancellation of your subscription which may require notice to be given to us. Please see Section 7 below. If you cancel or choose not to renew your subscription you must also notify us using the method set out in Section 7.9 below.

7. Your rights to cancel

7.1 As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel the contract formed between us (and receive a refund of the fees paid) within 14 days if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to continue your subscription.

7.2 Your legal right to cancel the contract starts from the date on which we confirm that your application for subscription has been accepted or from renewal, which is when the contract between us is formed. Your deadline for cancelling the contract is 14 days after the day on which this contract was formed. To cancel a contract in this way, you need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. Please see Section 7.8 below to find out how to notify us.

7.3 If you cancel the contract in accordance with Section 7.2 we will:

7.3.1 refund you the price you paid for the subscription. Please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect the period of time (if any) that the subscription was valid up to the date on which we were notified of your decision to cancel the contract; and

7.3.2 make any refunds due to you as soon as possible.

7.4 After 14 days have passed you will not receive any refund if you cancel your subscription. You must give us at least 3 months’ notice ahead of renewal to let us know that you have decided to cancel your subscription for the following year.

7.5 If you cancel the subscription contract in accordance with Section 7.4 your subscription will continue for 3 months during the notice period and we will not take any further payments after the end of the 3 months. However, we will not refund to you any payments already made and you may still have to make payments during the 3 month notice period (if applicable).

7.6 In the event that your subscription is cancelled for any reason you will no longer be entitled to receive any subscription benefits.

7.7 The subscription and any associated benefits shall cease on death but no refund shall be made.

7.8 To let us know that you wish to cancel your subscription or not renew your subscription, you must cancel your subscription via the Argyll FM website or notify us in writing at membership@argyllfm.com.

8. Gift Aid

8.1 Gift Aid is a government scheme that adds 25p to every £1 you give to charity - at no extra cost to you. It is an easy way to ensure that charities, like us, receive more benefit from the money given to them. Subscribers who sign up to Gift Aid will be making a much-valued additional contribution to the charitable work of Argyll FM.

Gift Aid allows us to claim tax back from HMRC on your subscription/donations. It doesn't cost you a penny and your support will help to fund our important work.

To sign up to Gift Aid, ensure you have consented to do so by agreeing to the Gift Aid declaration, if you are eligible to do so, in the registration form.

9. Data protection and use of personal data

9.1 When you apply for a subscription with Argyll FM (and throughout the course of your subscription) it will be necessary for us to obtain certain information from you (such as your name, address and date of birth). We will treat this as personal data for the purposes of data protection law. Argyll FM will collect, hold and process your personal data in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

10. Liability

10.1 Subject to Section 10.3, and to the extent possible by law, Argyll FM excludes all liability to subscription holders or to any other third party for any loss of profit, or any special, incidental or consequential damages (however arising, including negligence) arising out of, or in connection with services, benefits and/or products supplied by Argyll FM or any company associated with Argyll FM.
