4.1              Member Registration. In order to become a Member and use some of the Services, and access certain parts of the Website, you will need to create an Account with us by completing the Registration Form. When you register an Account with us, you agree that you will:

4.1.1                 at all times provide us with true, accurate, current and complete personal information, including a valid email address, and promptly update your personal information associated with your Account if and when it changes;

When you complete and submit your Registration Form to us (and provide us with your payment details), that is an offer to DTTT to become a Member which is subject to DTTT’s acceptance in writing. A Membership Contract between DTTT and you will only be formed when a Confirmation is sent by DTTT to you (whether or not it is received) using the contact details you provided at the time of registration, after your Fee has been received in full and in cleared funds by DTTT.

4.3              Membership duration. Membership Contracts last for a period of 12 months from the date on which the Confirmation is sent by DTTT to you, save in circumstances where termination occurs earlier in accordance with these Terms.

4.4              Upgrading your Membership Level. You may upgrade an existing Membership to a higher Membership Level in one of the following two ways:

4.4.1                 during the first month of any Membership, by paying a sum equivalent to the difference in the Fee already paid for the current Membership Level and the Fee required for the new Membership Level (in which case the original Membership will continue at the new Membership Level); or

4.4.2                 at any time, by paying the full amount of the Fee charged for the new Membership Level, in which case a new Membership at that new Membership Level will begin for a period of 12 months commencing on the date of the payment of that Fee.

4.5              Group Memberships. No group Accounts are permitted without our prior written consent. Where a Membership allows for a number of Users to have access through a single Membership, each Member will be able to add and remove other Members. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure that any Users who access the Website or the Services through your Membership are responsible and fully comply with these Terms.

4.6              Activity under your Account and Membership. You are responsible for all use of the Website and the Services which occurs under or in connection with your Membership and/or Account, and for any breach of these Terms which occurs as a result of such use whether an unacceptable use occurs or is attempted, whether you knew or show have known about it, whether or not you carried out or attempted the unacceptable use alone, contributed to it or acted with others or allowed any unacceptable use to occur by omission.

4.7              Membership within an organisation.

5.1              Where to find the Membership Fee. Information about the different Membership Levels, and the associated Fee for each Membership Level, can be found on your Confirmation.

5.2              Making payment. We accept payment via the Payment Providers, and also directly from you (via bank transfer and credit card, as set out in more detail in your Confirmation) in cases where we issue you an invoice (an “Invoice”). In the absence of negligence on our part we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you give us.

5.3              Fees are immediately payable. Any Fees are usually immediately payable online prior to the activation of your Membership (unless we notify you otherwise in writing). In the case of any Fee invoiced by DTTT in an Invoice, any such Fee shall be paid by the Member within 14 working days of the date of the invoice in question (unless we notify you otherwise in writing).

5.4              Your agreement to pay the Fee and taxes. When you submit your Registration Form to us, you agree to pay the Fee for any and all Services you purchase from us (including, for the avoidance of doubt, your Membership). You acknowledge that you shall be responsible for paying any and all applicable taxes due and payable in any jurisdiction with respect to your Fee (including but not limited to VAT in the EU).

5.5              Your Membership automatically renews. You acknowledge that your Membership (regardless of which Membership Level you have purchased) will automatically renew on an annual basis. You will be notified in advance of any such automatic renewal. Where an automatic renewal requires payment of a Fee, payment will be taken automatically in full on the renewal date using the payment details your provided in your Registration Form (and no Special Offer(s) that applied to your Membership when you initially purchased it will be continue or be carried forward without our prior written agreement).

5.6              Renewals constitute a separate order for Services. Any Membership renewal in accordance with paragraph 5.5 will constitute a separate order for Services and shall be treated as a separate binding legal contract between you and DTTT subject to these Terms.

5.7              Prices. The Fee and any other charges are payable in the currency stated on the Website and/or in your Confirmation. If no currency is specified, all fees are quoted in UK Pounds Sterling and shall exclude any and all applicable taxes in any relevant jurisdiction (including but not limited to VAT and/or GST).

5.8              Changes to the Fee. DTTT reserves the right to change its payment policy and the Fee charged for the Services from time to time, with such changes becoming effective immediately.

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

12.5           If you are a Consumer. These Terms are not intended to and do not change or exclude any statutory consumer rights that cannot be lawfully changed or excluded.

12.10        Whether you are a Consumer or a Business User – events beyond our control. We do not, in any event, accept responsibility for any failure to make the Website available and/or to provide the Services as a result of circumstances or events which could reasonably be considered as unforeseen and/or outside our control (including, but not limited to, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes; breakdown of systems or network access; or flood, fire, explosion or accident) or as a result of our obligations under any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

13.2           You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.

13.3           Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of these Terms.

13.4           If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

13.5           Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

13.6           Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These Terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Terms in the English courts.
