The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says digital content, such as our Plan, must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality:
- if your digital content is faulty, you are entitled to a repair or a replacement
- if the fault cannot be fixed, or if it has not been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, you can get some or all of your money back

13.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of our Services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where our Services’ correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If our Services’ correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

14.2 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these Terms of Business, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
14.3 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Plans; and for defective Plans under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
14.4 If defective digital content that we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage that you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage that was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
14.5 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply our Services for domestic and private use. If you use the Plans for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
