Terms & Privacy
SERVICE & PRICES
Public Sector Travel is a website and email news service aimed at buyers and other procurement professionals with responsibility for travel in public sector organisations, ranging from central government departments and quangos to local authorities and education bodies.
Corporate subscription price: £395 per annum
A corporate subscription entitles up to 10 named recipients in one organisation to receive not only the weekly insight newsletter but also to have full access to the private site. The private site enables you to download data on the public site as well as access to premium data and valuable content, such as information on upcoming tenders.
This Subscriber Agreement governs your use of the Public Sector Travel website located at https://www.publicsectortravel.org.uk (“Website”) and is a legal agreement between you (“Subscriber”) and businesstravelwire (“Provider”).
BY PLACING A CHECK MARK IN THE “I AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE” CHECKBOX OR OTHERWISE USING PROVIDER’S WEBSITE, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, UNDERSTAND IT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
If you agree, place a check mark in the “I agree to the Terms and Conditions of Use” checkbox on the first page of the Website’s new account registration process. If you place a check mark in the “I agree to the Terms and Conditions of Use” checkbox without actually reading this agreement, you will nevertheless be legally bound. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, do not place a check mark in the “I agree to the Terms and Conditions of Use” checkbox. If you do not place a check mark in the “I agree to the Terms and Conditions of Use” checkbox you will not be able to proceed with the Website’s registration process, will not become a subscriber of the Website, and will not be granted access to restricted content of the Website.
ACCESS TO WEBSITE CONTENT
Access to subscriber-only content of the Website is provided to users of the Website who register as Subscribers and who have an active Subscription. Specifically, in consideration of Subscriber’s completed automated recurring payment to Provider according to the terms of the subscription plan elected by Subscriber during their new account registration process or a subscription plan subsequently elected by Subscriber from their existing Website account (“Subscription Plan”) Subscriber will be permitted access to that content of the Website restricted to subscribers.
AUTOMATIC CREDIT/DEBIT CARD / PAYPAL PAYMENT METHOD AGREEMENT
By accepting this Agreement, Subscriber authorizes an automatic recurring payment to Provider from the Subscriber’s credit, debit, bank card or PayPal account (the “Automatic Recurring Payment Method”).
AUTOMATIC RECURRING PAYMENT FAILURE
If a payment demand on Subscriber’s Automatic Recurring Payment Method is declined, Subscriber’s Subscription will be suspended and access to Website’s subscriber-only content will be denied. In the event of such a decline, Subscriber gives Provider the authority to make corrections to any information and resubmit the demand. Provider may permanently restrict Subscriber’s ability to use a certain payment method if that payment method fails multiple times.
In the event that payment is not received and Subscriber does not pay the amount due in full, Subscriber’s subscription will be terminated and access to Website’s subscriber-only content will be denied.
The Subscriber has the right to cancel within seven days of the start of the subscription and will receive a full refund of the subscription cost. After seven days the Subscriber understands that any Automatic Recurring Payment Method authorization shall remain in effect until withdrawn by the Subscriber or cancelled by Provider. The Subscriber must provide one month notice prior to the cancellation of the subscription. Subscribers will be refunded £20 per month for the remainder of the subscription after the one month notice period. The Subscription Plan will remain in effect until Subscriber gives notice of cancellation to Provider and Provider has successfully relayed such notice to their payment provider. Please allow Provider up to one month for processing cancellation notices.
The Subscriber can give notice of cancellation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once this is completed, the Subscriber will be sent written confirmation via e-mail within 24 hours to their email address specified in Subscriber’s Website account. If such confirmation email is not received within this timeframe, please send an e-mail to email@example.com indicating this situation and requesting assistance. The cancellation process must be completed within 10 business days of Subscriber’s scheduled Subscription billing date to ensure Subscriber is not charged for the next billing period.
Subscriber will have access to Website’s subscription-only content for the remainder of the currently paid billing period. In the event that the cancellation request is not completed (and notification has not been received at firstname.lastname@example.org) before Subscriber’s next recurring payment is processed, Subscriber’s account will be charged for the following billing period. If Subscriber fails to contact email@example.com regarding any problems Subscriber may experience, Provider cannot be held responsible for charges incurred.
CHANGES TO THIS PLAN
Subscriber understands that these terms and conditions may be amended or modified by Provider at any time with or without notice; however, Provider will endeavor to provide reasonable notice of any amendments or modifications.
