Transforming HR Subscriptions/HR Portal Access

When you sign up for your 12-month subscription, your first payment will be taken immediately. Your subscription payment is either annual or if agreed monthly installments and continues until cancelled (by you) or terminated (by us). In accordance with these Terms, subscriptions automatically renew each year on the anniversary of the purchase date. For example, if you purchase your membership on 1st January 2024, your subscription will automatically renew on 1st January 2025 for annual plans. You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as set out on our website). We reserve the right to change the subscription fees from time to time.

Subscription payment shall become due at the point of purchase or by installments as agreed when completing the subscription form by direct debit or monthly card payments. An invoice will be issued to the subscriber retrospectively. Where payment is not received either in full or in breach of the agreed installment option, we reserve the right to suspend the subscribers access to the Online Services until such time as payment is received.

Your subscription will be valid on a rolling annual basis. We do not offer refunds or credits for additional access for any unused subscription periods, change of mind, accidental purchases, medical reasons, or any other reason unless required to do so by law.
