The amount and types of EN Magazine Content that you can view, and the platforms on which you can view it, depend on what type of user you are and what type of subscription (if any) you have. We can vary the access rights of registered users who are not accessing through a paid subscription at any time at our discretion.

4. Personal Subscription Services and Temporary Access Passes

We offer subscription services through envsionmag.com and recommend that you read our Frequently Asked Questions for more details and before purchasing a subscription.

Types of subscription: Unless you purchase a subscription to use envsionmag.com then your usage rights will are limited.

EN Magazine reserves the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that it makes available to different categories of user.

Contract formation: By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a subscription. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your payment details and email address, at which point we will provide you with access to your subscription. EN Magazine reserves the right to reject any offer in its discretion, for any or no reason.

Payment details: when you purchase a subscription, you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details you promise that you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorisation or any authorisation is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription.

In suspicious circumstances we may contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms and conditions we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment, unless it has expired in which case we will contact you.

Pricing: The subscription price will be made clear to you on our sign-up pages or otherwise during the sign-up process and may vary from time to time. You agree to pay the fees at the rates notified to you at the time you purchase your subscription. For certain subscriptions you can take out either an annual or monthly (or other frequency we offer) subscription.

Other subscription services may only require a one-off payment. The currency in which your subscription is payable will be specified during the order process. Eligibility for any discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. We will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.

Trial subscriptions: where we provide a trial subscription, we will inform you of the full subscription price that is payable after the trial period. After the trial, your subscription will renew automatically at the full subscription price unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the trial.

Please note that no more than one trial subscription per subscriber is allowed in any twelve month period. We reserve the right to cancel any trial subscription immediately, without refund, if we become aware that the subscriber has already had another trial subscription in the previous twelve months.

Pricing errors: If we incorrectly state a price to you whether online or otherwise, we are not obliged to provide you with a subscription at that price, even if we have mistakenly accepted your offer to buy a subscription at that price, and we reserve the right to subsequently notify you of any pricing error. If we do this, you may cancel the subscription without any obligation to us and we will refund you any money you have paid us in full, or you may pay the correct price.

If you refuse to exercise either of these choices then we may cancel your subscription and will refund you any money you have paid us in full. We will always act in good faith in determining whether a genuine pricing error has occurred.

5. Renewal and Cancellation of Individual Subscriptions

Renewals: If you chose to pay monthly via credit or debit card, your subscription will continue until you tell us that you no longer wish to receive it, in which case you will stop paying the monthly fees. If you chose to pay annually, at least 14 days before each renewal you will be sent a reminder notice stating the rate that will apply for the renewal period.

Unless you notify us before the end of your annual subscription period that you no longer wish to receive it, your annual subscription will renew for another year. We will charge the subscription using the same card or other payment method that you previously used. 

Cancellation: You may notify us of your wish to cancel your subscription by contacting us. Please then include: The subscribers full name (person on the billing information if different from the user), Email address and your contact telephone number.
