To subscribe or purchase any of our services, products or any of our subscriptions, you are required to enter personal information. All of this information is subject to our Privacy Policy.

Eligibility: This Site is for users who are 18 years of age or older. By agreeing to the Terms of Use, you warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with the Company and meet all the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Site. If you are using the Site on behalf of any entity, you further represent and warrant that you are authorised to accept these Terms of Use on such entity’s behalf.

Registration: You are required to create an account in order to purchase from our Site.

Subscribing: By subscribing, you agree to pay your subscription fee for the digital and/or physical products that are delivered for the term agreed by both parties.

Subscription Renewal: By signing up for a Black Business Magazine subscription, you understand and agree you will be charged at the standard rate and that any promotional codes used as a new customer at signup do not transfer or apply to your renewal fee. If you cancel your subscription, you will be subject to the standard rate on renewal.

The Company do not accept any responsibility or offer refunds for ‘auto renewals’ proceeding if you have failed to cancel your subscription before your next renewal date. You understand and agree that you will be automatically billed after your current 3 or 12 months subscription expires unless the subscription is ‘set to cancel’ before your final payment date in your initial commitment.

Your subscription is continuous until you cancel. If you cancel your membership before an existing subscription period ends, you will not be due a full or partial refund.

 If you do not cancel your membership before your subscription renewal, your subscription will automatically renew for a new period of the same amount of time.

Cancellation: You may cancel your subscription by logging into your account on the Black Business Magazine website anytime. This does not initiate a refund if you fail to cancel before the renewal date.

Your subscription is continuous until you cancel, and if you cancel your subscription before the end of an existing subscription commitment period, you will be charged for the remainder of that subscription period. 3-month and 12-month subscriptions are payable in advance; if you wish to cancel, you have three working days from subscribing to cancel.

Where Black Business Magazine states you can cancel at any time, this directly refers to the renewal, and you must cancel by 11:59 pm on the day before your renewal date.

Black Business Magazine does not offer a ‘free trial’ or ‘£1 trial’ unless stated. A 12-month subscription differs, and you have agreed to pay in advance for the subscription period. Normal month-to-month subscriptions can be cancelled at any point.

Black Business Magazine discounts are one per household.

Black Business Magazine is a subscription service; by signing up, you agree it is your responsibility to cancel your own subscription by logging into your account profile. The Company do not accept responsibility to cancel your account on your behalf. It is up to the customer alone to cancel the subscription. Cancellations must be completed before the next renewal date. Your subscription will renew on the same date of the month that you signed up for a 3-month or 12-month subscription.

You must cancel your subscription 24 hours before the renewal date. All cancellation requests received after the renewal date of a subscription period will apply to the following subscription period.

Billing & Payments: You will automatically be charged each month on your renewal date for your ongoing monthly subscription. If you have committed to a subscription period lasting longer than one month (e.g. a three-month plan, a twelve-month plan), you agree to pay in advance for that subscription period.

Further, unless you cancel your subscription or membership prior to the end of your then, current subscription period, at the end of that period, your subscription will automatically be renewed for an additional subscription period of the same amount of time.

Prepaid credit/debit cards are not accepted.

For your convenience and continuous subscription benefits as a member, you do not need to edit your credit card information if your payment method reaches its expiration date. You have an ongoing subscription; you authorise us to continue billing that credit card on file, including extending the expiration date until we are notified by you or the credit card company that the account is no longer valid. Please update your payment method information or cancel your subscription should you wish to discontinue accessing our services.

Your Personal Data: Your security is paramount to us. We use a reputable third party to process all payments, ‘Stripe Europe Ltd’, and you agree that we can store your information with this party. You also acknowledge that we will not be held responsible for any third-party security breaches.

Shipping: Our listed prices include shipping fees unless otherwise stated. All orders placed on our website are subject to availability. Products will be shipped according to our Site shipping terms.

Loss of Goods: Royal Mail is responsible for delivering all goods ordered. Should your magazine not arrive by seven days after the date stated, please email us.

The Company has a return policy in line with distance selling laws; if there is a problem or defect with any product delivered by the Black Business Magazine box, we will do our utmost to rectify the problem; if you ‘do not like’ the product, then the product can be returned at the customer’s expense, as stated by distance selling laws.

Pricing/Errors: Product prices and product availability are subject to change without notice. We may cancel any offer and reserve the right to correct errors, including after an order has been submitted, whether or not your credit/debit card has been charged. If your credit/debit card has already been charged and your order is cancelled, the Company will issue a refund to your credit/debit card account in the amount of the charge. You accept that your subscription being ‘auto renewed’ on the date advised at sign-up is not considered an error liable for a refund.
