7. Access - trial and paid subscriptions
7.1 To access the full Content of the Websites, it is necessary to register for a trial or to take a paid subscription.
7.2 Free Trials provisions:
7.2.1 Users may register for a trial by completing the registration form. Whilst most users will be accepted for a trial, completion of the form is not a right to access the Content. Field Gibson Media has complete discretion whether to accept the application and may suspend the trial if it wishes. The trial period shall commence once your application has been accepted which will either be shown on the website or sent in writing and will be for a period agreed by the parties. From time to time, Field Gibson Media may alter the length of a trial. Users will be entitled to one trial only within a period specified by Field Gibson Media. At our discretion, we may extend a user a second trial. If you believe you have a genuine reason justifying a second trial, please email us at [email protected].
7.2.2 During your free trial, Field Gibson Media will grant you a non-exclusive licence to search and view the Content for the purposes of deciding whether you wish to take a subscription. During the trial, you undertake not to download and save in electronic format, copy and paste, make print outs or copies or modify, publish, post, communicate or disseminate any of the Content.
7.3 Subscription provisions:
7.3.1 You may take out a subscription for a period of either one or two years.
7.3.2 In order to purchase a subscription you must provide complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details you are (a) making an offer to us to buy a subscription at the price we have communicated to you and (b) confirming you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. Once we have verified your payment details and email address and accepted your offer, a contract will be formed and we will provide you with access to your subscription.
7.3.3 Unless otherwise stated, the subscription price excludes VAT. All prices shall be subject to the addition of VAT (where applicable) or any other tax payable as will be indicated on your invoice.
7.3.4 Individual user subscriptions are only available to an individual email address and not to generic email addresses.
7.3.5 Corporate subscription licences may be purchased to allow multiple members of staff with the same email domain address, or with prior agreed email domain addresses, to access our content.

Field Gibson Media will discuss with you the benchmark size of the licence and the parameters of the licence with regards to the staff that will be covered i.e individual department, office, country or global. The cost of the licence will depend on the benchmark set.
7.3.7 Once the benchmark is set, Field Gibson Media is happy to add additional users during the year even if these additional users take the number of active email addresses above the benchmark. These users may be added by you contacting Field Gibson Media or by Field Gibson Media identifying new triallists to its Websites that fit the parameters agreed and automatically adding them. This means that the licence may grow during the term of the licence but there will be no extra cost to you. At renewal, Field Gibson Media will give you the option to remove the additional users and remain at the benchmark level or to move to a new benchmark.
7.3.8 You have the option to opt out of auto-adding if you wish, or to ask for all additional users to be run past you.
For payment by card, Field Gibson Media will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your credit or debit card details through the use of encryption technology and firewalls. However, "faultless" security does not exist on the Internet. Your card number and contact information will be provided to our subscriptions processor, Recurly, and payment gateway, SagePay, at the time of purchase.
