4.2 Prices may include VAT. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Services in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
4.3 Whilst we try to ensure that all prices on our Website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover any error in the prices of the subscriptions you have ordered and this is greater than what you have paid, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of recommencing your order at the correct price or cancelling it.
