PAYING FOR THE SERVICE

The current pricing is advertised on our website and we may vary this from time to time, but the subscription fee shall apply for the initial subscription period.

how payments are made: we use a third party to manage our customer subscription transactions for online purchases. Payments are arranged using a direct debit.

term of subscription for online purchases from our website: we will continue to supply the customer’s subscription and take further payment using the credit or debit card details provided to us or updated by you and/or invoice you every month or year thereafter until your subscription is cancelled and your account is closed. Our third party payment provider will notify you before taking payments in accordance with the prevailing terms and conditions of the Direct Debit scheme.

The customer must ensure that we have complete and accurate billing and contact information throughout the subscription period, including the full name of the customer, its business address, and a billing contact email address. If subscription fees become overdue, because for example the customer’s credit card has expired, we reserve the right to suspend your access to the service until the balance is paid and/or we may close your account permanently without notice. If the service is suspended, the customer must contact flick directly to correct the payment error.

Please note: all subscription purchased via flicklearning.com are self-managed and will automatically renew unless an administrator of the account has selected the ‘cancel subscription’ button within their admin dashboard.

VAT: prices on our website are quoted in UK pounds sterling and exclude VAT, which is also payable.

Where purchases are agreed through direct contact with the team at flick, an invoice will be issued to the customer for the subscription period requested, which must be paid in full before an account is opened, and the service may be accessed.
