- When you register on the Site, you will create a username and a password. You are responsible for keeping your username and password confidential, and you are responsible for any activity under your Anglo-Link account. Please take precautions to protect your password, and contact us immediately if you believe there has been any unauthorised use of your Anglo-Link account.
When you use the Site, you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and you agree not to:
- try to gain unauthorised access to the Site or any networks, servers or computer systems connected to the Site;
- use the Site in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair our servers or networks, or interfere with any other user's use and enjoyment of the Site; and/or

Subscription Fee and Credits
Much of the Anglo-Link Content is accessible only on payment of a Subscription Fee. Subscription Fees are either paid monthly or every six months depending on your Subscription Plan.
Subscription fee is non-refundable.
Payment & Renewals
Your subscription shall not commence until we receive the first instalment of the Subscription Fee. If you fail to pay any subsequent instalment of the Subscription Fee by the due date, we shall be entitled to:
1. downgrade your Anglo-Link account to the basic, free membership, and accordingly much of the Site Content will no longer be available to you; and/or
2. charge costs and interest on any overdue sums, accruing from the due date up to the date of actual payment in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
Unless you notify us before the next due date of your Subscription Fee that you want to end your Subscription Plan at this date or cancel your Subscription Plan in your Client Area, we will automatically charge the then-applicable periodic Subscription Fee using your preferred payment method.
If your preferred payment method becomes invalid during your Subscription Plan period, or if the charge is refused for any other reason outside our control, you authorise us to use any other payment method we have on file in your client account. If all your payment methods on file are declined, your Subscription Plan will be cancelled.
If you do not renew your Subscription Plan, we will downgrade your Anglo-Link account to the basic, free membership, and accordingly, much of the Site Content will no longer be available to you. You can opt out of automatic renewal at any time before the renewal date by either changing your renewal option in your Client Area, or by contacting us.
Cancellation by you and refunds
You agree that because Anglo-Link Content is downloadable, as soon as you have paid the Subscription Fee, there is no 'cooling off' period or other right to cancel and claim a refund under the Consumer Rights Act 2015. However, please contact us if you have any issues with any Anglo-Link Content that you use or download.
As an alternative to paying a Subscription Fee, you can purchase or earn Credits which can be redeemed against certain Site Content, including Lessons. All Credits must be used within 12 months of the date of purchase, and are non-transferable. Credits have no cash value and may not be redeemed for legal currency or items of value outside of the Site. You can claim a refund for all or part of purchased Credits provided that you contact us within 14 days of purchase, and we shall refund to you any part of the Credits that have not been used to purchase Site Content.
Free daily credits earned as part of the Silver and Gold memberships are capped at 1000 credits. Once this number is reached, you stop earning daily credits until some of these credits have been used and the total number has dropped below 1000.
You may only purchase Site Content in the amount and at times permitted by us at our sole discretion, and only for your personal use. We may change the price and/or availability of the Site Content at any time.
The costs of Lessons are set out on the Site showing the number of Credits needed to book them. All Credits due for a Lesson are deducted from your available Credit Balance in advance at the time you make the booking.
If a dispute should arise between a user and the payment processor regarding payment, the user will be responsible for resolving the dispute. To the fullest exntent permitted by applicable law, we will not accept any responsibility for the dispute. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorneys' fees and other legal expenses.
