We will provide notice of any significant changes in Section 15 below.

ACCESSING OUR SITE
Access to our site is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on our site without notice (see below). We will not be liable if for any reason our site is unavailable at any time or for any period.
When using our site, you must comply with the provisions of our acceptable use policy (below).
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our site. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our site through your internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they comply with them
From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of our site, or our entire site, to users who have registered with us. Unless you purchase a subscription to use AllWorldLaws.com then your usage rights will be limited as set out at https://www.AllWorldLaws.com/membership. We offer various types of subscription: the options currently available are set out at https://www.AllWorldLaws.com/membership.
We reserves the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that it makes available to different categories of user. If you are a AllWorldLaws.com subscriber, any reduction in the scope of your subscription will take effect only after we have given you at least 30 days’ notice, and will apply from the date of your next payment following that 30-day period.
We will try to process your subscription promptly but does not guarantee that your subscription will be activated by any specified time. By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a subscription. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we have successfully verified your payment details and email address, at which point we will provide you with access to your subscription. We reserves the right to reject any offer in its discretion, for any or no reason.
When you purchase a subscription, 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. If we do not receive payment authorisation or any authorisation is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription. In suspicious circumstances we may contact the issuing bank/payment provider and/or law enforcement authorities or other appropriate third parties. If you are entitled to a refund under these terms and conditions we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment, unless it has expired in which case we will contact you.
The subscription price will be made clear to you on our registration pages or otherwise during the registration process and may vary from time to time or by country. You agree to pay the fees at the rates notified to you at the time you purchase your subscription. For certain subscriptions you can take out either an annual or monthly (or other frequency we offer) subscription. Other subscription services may only require a one-off payment. You can also take out any other fixed term or payment frequency that we may offer from time to time. The currency in which your subscription is payable will be specified during the order process, depending on the service and your country of residence. Eligibility for any discounts is ascertained at the time you subscribe and cannot be changed during the term of your subscription. We will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.
Where we provide a trial subscription, we will inform you of the full subscription price that is payable after the trial period. After the trial, your subscription will renew automatically at the full subscription price unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the trial. Please note that no more than one trial subscription per subscriber is allowed in any 12-month period. We reserve the right to cancel any trial subscription immediately, without refund, if we become aware that the subscriber has already had another trial subscription in the previous twelve months.
Unless otherwise indicated, prices stated on our website are inclusive of any applicable value added tax (VAT) or other sales taxes. The breakdown of any applicable VAT payable with your order is indicated on the invoice you will receive with your purchase. AllWorldLaws is registered for VAT in the UK. Our VAT registration number is GB 183 5437 90.
If we incorrectly state a price to you whether online or otherwise, we are not obliged to provide you with a subscription at that price, even if we have mistakenly accepted your offer to buy a subscription at that price, and we reserve the right to subsequently notify you of any pricing error. If we do this, you may cancel the subscription without any obligation to us and we will refund you any money you have paid us in full, or you may pay the correct price. If you refuse to exercise either of these choices then we may cancel your subscription and will refund you any money you have paid us in full. We will always act in good faith in determining whether a genuine pricing error has occurred.
RENEWALS AND CANCELLATION OF SUBSCRIPTIONS
If you chose to pay monthly, your subscription will continue until you tell us that you no longer wish to receive it, in which case you will stop paying the monthly fees. We will notify you at least 14 days in advance of any changes to the price in your subscription that will apply upon next monthly renewal. If you chose to pay annually, at least 14 days before each renewal you will be sent a reminder notice stating the rate that will apply for the renewal period. Unless you notify us before the end of your annual subscription period that you no longer wish to receive it, your annual subscription will renew for another year. We will charge the subscription using the same card or other payment method that you previously used.
By placing your order you agree that we may start your subscription immediately upon our accepting your order. This means that you are not entitled to a refund if you change your mind after we have provided you with access to your subscription. You do not have any right to cancel your subscription or any part of it until the end of your then current subscription period. Although you may notify us of your intention to cancel at any time, such notice will only take effect at the end of your then current subscription period, and you will not receive a refund (except in the limited circumstances set out in these terms).
You may notify us of your wish to cancel your subscription by contacting our Membership team at membership@AllWorldLaws.com.
AllWorldLaws reserves the right to suspend or terminate your subscription if you breach these terms and conditions, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. We may also suspend or terminate your subscription if we are prevented from providing services to you by circumstances beyond our control. If we terminate your subscription for any reason and/or permanently cease publishing AllWorldLaws.com, the AllWorldLaws content or cease to provide subscription services then, unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will provide you with a pro rata refund to your credit card. This means that we will refund you with any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your subscription.
If you are a registered user, but not a paid subscriber, than AllWorldLaws reserves the right to suspend or terminate your registration at any time, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. If you would like to cancel your registration then please contact our membership@AllWorldLaws.com.

As long as you do not create a Substitute, you may do the following:
Publish online, the original AllWorldLaws headline and a link to the article and the first 140 characters of an article (what we call teaser text);
Forward the original headlines, links and teaser text to other individuals;
Download our RSS feeds and view them for your personal use. We currently publish headlines and teaser text within our RSS feeds.
Organisations that may be using AllWorldLaws content without the appropriate permissions may approach us with a view to discussing the purchase of a licence to legitimise that use. Please email info@AllWorldLaws.com for further information.
The amount and types of AllWorldLaws content that you can view, and the platforms on which you can view AllWorldLaws content, depend on what type of user you are and what type of subscription (if any) you have. Registered users who are not accessing through a paid subscription can view up to three articles a month, as well as news, featured articles and certain other AllWorldLaws content. We can vary the access rights of registered users who are not accessing through a paid subscription at any time at our discretion.
For further access, we offer various types of individual and corporate subscription: see Section 4 for details of individual subscriptions, and email membership@AllWorldLaws.com for details of our corporate subscriptions.
