  1. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US

2.1 After completing signup, you will receive an e-mail from acknowledging that we have received your first payment. Please note that this does not mean that your subscription has been accepted. Your subscription constitutes an offer to us to buy Products by subscribing to a Service. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that your subscription has been accepted (Welcome Email). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Welcome Email.

2.2 The subscription plan to our Services consist of an initial charge and then followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. Nufields Limited (TA Nufields) may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) without further authorisation from you, until you provide prior notice that you have terminated this authorisation or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Nufields reasonably could act. To terminate your authorisation or change your payment method, log into your Nufields account and manage your automatic subscription payment to us under the ‘pre approved payments’ tab in ‘settings’. Nufields cannot alter or cancel this for you.

2.3 By subscribing to our Services you are agreeing to pay recurring periodic subscriptions for an indefinite time until cancelled by you, on the subscription terms set out in the application form you have completed. You can cancel your subscription at any time. You will not be charged for any cancellation.

2.4 Account Cancellations. If you wish to cancel your monthly subscription with us, you must cancel 7 days before your next payment is due to be collected, in order to avoid receiving the following months’ box. Customers cancelling after their payment has been taken will receive the following months box as their last box.
