General rules for paying subscribers.
If the type of subscription you have requires you to make a payment for such subscription the following applies. Our invitation to you to order a subscription to the Sushi Service is not an "offer" by us to sell you a subscription at the prices on the website. Instead when you complete the registration form, you make an offer to us to buy a subscription, which we can accept or reject. The order is finalised (and a legal contract is created between us) when we send a confirmatory email accepting your order. If there is a mistake in the subscription pricing on the website then, when we receive your order we will email you and set out the correct price and give you the opportunity to request a subscription at that price or you may decide not to subscribe. Unless otherwise agreed by us in advance in writing, you must be a business or sole trader that is established in the United Kingdom and the place of supply of services must be in the United Kingdom.
General rules for non-paying subscribers
If the type of subscription you have does not require you to make a payment for such subscription the following applies. Your subscription is premised upon an invitation by us to you. When you complete the registration form, you make an offer to us to register for a subscription, which we can accept or reject. The validity of your subscription is finalised (and a legal contract is created between us) when we send a confirmatory email accepting your order. Aside from the payment obligations, the terms governing your subscription to and use of the Sushi Service and the Site is no different as otherwise contained herein. Notwithstanding, we may agree with you a bespoke billing model (e.g. a click price per booking by an End Customer) which shall be agreed with you in advance, the details of which will be confirmed in the confirmatory email we send to you and which you agree will be binding.
Can I cancel my subscription?
Does my subscription renew automatically?
No. We will let you know in advance when you need to renew your subscription, together with any changes to the subscription charges. The subscription prices we agree with you will not change during the period for which you have ordered and paid for access to the Sushi Service. We can change the subscription prices for any other period by contacting you by email, and you should always check the latest pricing on the Site before registering or re-registering.

Suspending and termination your subscription
We will use reasonable efforts to provide the Sushi Service to you, an interactive online diary system which you can log onto access and manage.
The Sushi Service will allow you to arrange, rearrange and cancel Services that are made available by you to End Customers. We also provide a booking mechanism for your End Customers to pay for the Services. The Site sets out the various options available for you, or your End Customers, to do this.
The legal relationship for the provision of Services in return for payment exists between you and your End Customer. Clock sushi shall have no responsibility in relation to this legal relationship. So, for example, if your End Customer has booked a Service through the Site but fails to turn up to the Service, you will be responsible for arranging a refund (if any) with your End Customer.
All payments will take place through the clock sushi nominated payment provider, currently Google Checkout.
We do not make any representations that you will experience an increase or decrease in the number of End Customers bookings Services with you as a result of your subscription to clock sushi.

Subject to the restrictions imposed by us or your Service Provider, the Sushi Service will allow you to view the calendar of your Service Provider. Unless you pay for your Service, when you make a reservation in a Service Provider's calendar, this will not form a binding contract with that Service Provider. The Service Provider reserves the right to overrule, cancel and rearrange the reservation at his/her discretion.
Paying for Services

After submitting an order to us, you will be sent an order acknowledgement email with your order reference, details of the Service you have ordered, (including location and time of the Service) and the Service Provider's contact details. Please note, the order acknowledgment email is merely an acknowledgement that your order has been placed and is not an acceptance of your order.
Acceptance of your order and the formation of a contract between you and the Service Provider will take place when you turn up to the Service Provider and the Service begins e.g. you arrive for a lesson with a tennis coach and you begin your lesson.

Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards, in accordance with the Google Checkout payment rules. Payment will be debited from your account upon placing of your order.

We are not responsible for your card issuer or bank charging you as a result of our processing of your credit/debit card payment in accordance with your order.
In the unlikely event that the price of any Service has been incorrectly advertised on the Site, we will contact you by email or telephone to ask whether you wish to proceed with the order at the correct price.

You can do this by following the appropriate on screen prompts when you are logged in to your personal area. If you cancel or amend your booking within this time, you shall have the option (at your discretion) to either: (a) have a refund paid back to you in full with 7 days of your cancellation (which we will credit to the card that you used to pay for the Service); or (b) use the money that you have paid as a credit against a Service at another date. If you fail to attend the Service on the date set out in the acknowledgment email, or do not cancel or amend your Service time at least 24 hours before the start of your Service the money that you have paid shall be non- refundable.
The legal relationship for the provision of your Service in return for payment exists between you and your Service Provider.

General legal bits for Service Providers and End Customers
Our liability to you is not excluded or limited for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for statements we make knowing them to be untrue.
As we are only acting as the agent of the Service Provider, to the extent not prohibited by law, we will not be liable to you for any loss or other liability in relation to any Service and/or any Service Provider. Any claim or complaint you may have should be directed, in the first instance, to the Service Provider which is responsible for supplying the Service. Since all we can do is control the servers hosting the Sushi Service, we are not responsible if you cannot access it properly or at all because any elements outside our control are inadequate or functioning badly or not at all. These include the software, hardware and Internet or mobile network connections you use. If you cannot access or use the Sushi Service properly or at all because any of these reasons, we will not refund any money you have paid.
We may need to fix bugs, install updates and do general diagnosis and maintenance of the Sushi Service. We will try to do this kind of scheduled maintenance during what we anticipate will be relatively low levels of use. We also need to be able to do emergency maintenance and/or suspend access to the servers where, using our reasonable discretion as an online publisher, we see the need to do that. That could be because there are attempts to get round our security measures, because there is a serious problem with the functioning of the website or if we have a legal or regulatory issue with the Sushi Service or its content. We will try to have the Sushi Service available again as soon as we think it is safe to do so.
Software has bugs. Whilst we will monitor the Sushi Service and try to fix bugs that we spot or are notified to us, you accept that we cannot guarantee that the Sushi Service will be bug-free or will work all the time. We will not be treated as giving assurances about the Site or the Sushi Service just because some assurances may be customary in software or online access agreements.
