2.4.	By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy the Subscription.

We reserve the right to reject any offer in our discretion, for any or no reason.

3.	Prices and Payment
3.1.	You agree to pay the price at the rate notified to you at the time you take out your Subscription. We may modify the price of any Subscription, remove and/or offer certain other subscription services from time to time.

3.2.	When you subscribe 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.

For example, your mobile network operator may charge you for data or roaming services. 
3.4.	It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, the Subscription prices listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover a pricing error, we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Subscription at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Subscription to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
