These are the terms of supply for Subcriptions ordered on https://scriber.to (Domain). The Domain is operated by or on behalf of Tellimer Technologies Ltd trading as Scriber (we, us and our). We are a limited company, registered in England. Our registered company number is 12495876, and our registered office is at 34-37 Liverpool St, London, EC2M 7PP, UK.
As a subscriber to a newsletter via Scriber your access or purchase of any of the publications offered by Publishers via the Scriber technology (Subscription) is subject to these terms, and by placing an order for a Subscription you agree to be bound by them.
We regularly enhance the Scriber services and reserve the right to change these terms from time to time.
When we update and amend these terms in any material way we will email you, and/or notify you through your Scriber account. If you object to the change, you are not obliged to carry on using the Scriber service; however if you carry on using the Scriber service you will be deemed to have accepted that change
Publishers and the role of Scriber
The Domain allows you to select and sign up to receive newsletters offered by a third party publisher (each a Publisher). These may be free newsletters or ones that you have to pay for to receive.
When you sign up to any Subscription from a Publisher, you will deal directly with the relevant Publisher (not us) and the contractual relationship in relation to the newsletter will be only between you and that Publisher.
Subscribers are responsible for selecting the Publishers they follow and Publishers are responsible for delivering their newsletters to their subscribers.
The Publisher is responsible for the delivery of the publications under the Subscription and our role is limited to providing technical means to allow the distribution of the publication on behalf of that Publisher. We also collect your payment on behalf of the Publisher.
We do not have any contractual obligations to you and you do not have any contractual rights against us regarding any Subscription you enter into with the Publisher or any of their Subscription content. Accordingly any complaints, claims, issues and requests about any newsletter or Publisher should be directed to the Publisher. We have no obligation to respond or support with any communication between you and the Publisher in relation to a Subscription or any of their Subscription content.
Please be aware of the Scriber Content Rules (https://scriber.to/legal/content-rules) which set out the acceptable matters that Publishers can and cannot write on using Scriber.
Setting Up an Account
Publishers and subscribers are required to sign up for an account and select a password when using the Scriber service or subscribing to a newsletter. Once set, your password should be kept safe and not shared with anyone else. You agree to provide us with accurate, complete, and up-to-date registration information about yourself as required by the onboarding process in the Scriber system. Your account is specific to you and must not to be transferred to anyone else without our prior agreement.
Both subscribers and Publishers agree that the Scriber service and any Subscription is for the subscriber and Publisher’s own personal or organisational use. You may not use Scriber or any Subsciption on behalf of any third party or otherwise attempt to redistribute its contents.
Subcriptions are set up by you selecting to subscribe for the relevant Publication. In the case of newsletters that require a payment to access them, subscribers must enter a valid payment method (a credit or debit card) while setting up their susbcription.
After placing an order, you will receive an acknowledgment from or on behalf of the relevant Publisher that your order has been received. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to the relevant Publisher to buy the Subscription. All orders are subject to acceptance by the relevant Publisher. Where your order is accepted, such acceptance will be confirmed by sending you an email confirmation.
You acknowledge that all intellectual property rights in the publications anywhere in the world belong to the Publisher and you have no rights in, or to, the publications sent to you as part of your Subscription and you agree not to distribute, copy, reproduce or share the publication with any third party. Failure to comply with this section may result in the immediate termination of your account. The publications may only be used for your own private purposes.
What you will receive on subscribing to a newsletter
If you subscribe to a newsletter you will be eligible to receive an email newletter from the relevant Publisher and also to access that content via the Publisher’s sub-domain on Scriber.
Price and payment
Some newsletters are free to read, others require a paid subscription. The price of a paid Subcription is as quoted by the Publisher and (if applicable) includes VAT and any other applicable taxes.
Payment for all Subscriptions must be made by credit or debit card via our third party payment processor indicated to you.
You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and the relevant Publisher is not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. The relevant Publisher is not responsible for this.
All Subscriptions automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, unless your payment card is declined or you actively cease your subscription. If you do not want to renew your Subscription you must “unscubscribe” from the relevant Publication in advance of renewal.
Nothing in these terms shall limit or exclude any liability to you:
- for death or personal injury caused by negligence;
- for fraudulent misrepresentation;
- for breach of any term implied by the UK Consumer Rights Act 2015 and which, by law, may not be limited or excluded;
- under Part I of the UK Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
- for any other liability that, by law, may not be limited or excluded.
In no event shall we be liable to you for any business losses and if you are a business customer, in no event shall we be liable to you for any indirect or consequential losses, or for any loss of profit, revenue, contracts, data, goodwill or other similar losses.
Please remember that the legal contract for the supply and purchase of the Subcription is between you and the relevant Publisher. Scriber has no control over the actions or omissions of any Publisher and accept no responsibility for the publications which form part of your Subscription including but not limited to claims related to quality and suitability of the publications as well as any other legal or contractual disputes which may arise in relation to the publications such as copyright claims, claims related to data protection legislation, defamatory content, and online safety.
Consumer rights and cancelling your Subscription
Our cancellation policy allows you to cancel your Subscription through your Scriber account at any time. If you cancel a paid for Subscitpion part way through a subscription period (which is typically a month, but please ensure you understand the terms of the subscription when you sign-up to it), then you will still be charged until the end of the relevant Subscription period. During that time you will continue to be sent the newsletter to which you have subscribed and your access to the Publisher's sub-domain will continue to be granted until the end of the subscription period in which you cancelled. In other words, you will never have to pay for any services that you do not receive.
For the purposes of the UK’s Consumer Contracts Regulations you may have the right to cancel a Subscription within 14 days after signing up to it. However, you acknowledge and agree that by signing up to a Publication via Scriber, the Subscription starts immediately following acceptance of your order and that you will therefore have no right to change your mind and cancel the Subscription under the Consumer Contracts Regulations once the Subscription has started. Accordingly, we do not offer any refunds on behalf of the Publisher should you wish to cancel your Subscription part way through a subscription period.
If you do cancel your subscription to any newsletter, no further payments will be taken from your payment card in relation to that publication beyond the end of the relevant subscription period, and you will no longer be able to view the Publisher’s newsletter or sub-domain once that period has ended.
You may not transfer or assign any or all of your rights or obligations under any contract.
If any provision of these terms is found to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain unaffected.
These terms may not be varied except with our express written consent.
These terms shall be governed by English law.
