1. TRIAL AND SPECIAL OFFERS
We will often offer you a trial period at the start of your subscription or a longer term special offer subscription rate. The length and cost of any trial or offer will vary from time to time, but full details will always be made available at the time of your application. We will only offer you one trial or special offer subscription in any 12 month period. We have no obligation to keep any offer open for a certain length of time.
At the end of your trial or offer period, your subscription will continue automatically at the standard rate that we have advertised as part of that offer. You may cancel your subscription at any time during your trial or offer period.
If you are taking advantage of one of our trials or special offers, you will pay in full for the relevant trial or offer period in advance. Similarly, when your trial or offer period ends and your membership continues as a monthly or quarterly subscription, we will collect your payments each month or quarter in advance. Details of the cost and your payment dates will be provided to you when you subscribe.
Some of our offers are only available by direct debit through our website. Others may be paid for by credit or debit card through the website or over the telephone. We accept Visa, Mastercard and Amex.
All credit or debit card payments will be subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment to us, then we will not be able to confirm your order and no contract will exist between us.
You may cancel your subscription at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org , by calling us on +44 (0)1737457826 (between GMT 0800-1600 Monday to Friday) or by writing to The Phoenix Comic, c/o Intermedia Brand Marketing Ltd, Abbey House, Clarendon Road, Redhill, Surrey, RH1 1QZ. If you are on a regular payment plan such as direct debit or continuous credit card payment, your cancellation will take effect from the day before your next payment would have been due, unless you request an earlier date. You should also cancel any instruction with your bank.
We will normally refund the unused portion of any subscription you have paid. For monthly subscriptions, however, we are unable to provide refunds in respect of periods of less than one month.
If you have received a free gift as part of a subscription offer that is rewarded after your trial period is over and after your first payment has been made, we will not award any refund until the following payment periods. So for example if you receive a comic book after a 6 week trial period AND after making a quarterly payment of £24.99, you waive the right to a refund for that first payment of £24.99. You are still free to cancel your subscription before the next quarterly payment, however. If you make that payment and then decide you wish to cancel we WILL offer a refund for that payment only.
