Terms & Conditions

By placing an order you (acting as a representative, and on behalf of, your organisation) have agreed to be bound by these terms and conditions.

These terms and conditions have been written in the first person. The terms ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’ refer to Forum Business Media Ltd. The terms ‘you’ or ‘your’ refer to the purchasing organisation or purchasing individual (if the purchase is not being paid for by the organisation).

Our contract
Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a publication or make a booking for an event. We accept this offer when we process your order and send you our order confirmation. A lawful contract thereby exists between us. Prior this stage, we reserve the right to refuse the order.

Payment terms
Our payment terms for all publications/events are strictly 14 days from date of invoice. We reserve the right to apply a late payment charge of £10.00 on invoices that are still outstanding beyond this period. We also reserve the right to enforce the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Act 1998 on invoices that are still outstanding after 60 days; meaning a late payment charge of £40.00 plus interest will be added to the outstanding amount.

The content in our magazines and their websites have been written/broadcast to comply with the regulations and law of England and Wales. We cannot guarantee their suitability for other parts of the UK or abroad. In many cases the content will need to be adapted to take into account your organisation’s specific circumstances. The content in our publications/events is not intended to replace any legal or professional advice when dealing with specific situations; neither we nor our authors/presenters can accept any responsibility for any action taken or not taken as a result of any of the content.

We undertake to provide the publications and events offered with reasonable care and skill. We do not warrant that availability or delivery of the services will be uninterrupted or error-free. We will not be liable to you for any loss, damages, costs, claims or expenses incurred as a result of any customisation of or amendment made by you to any of contents available from Forum Business Media Ltd.

We reserve the right to increase our prices without prior notification. Unless a date of when an offer expires is notified on our order forms, the prices quoted on our order forms are valid for six months, after this time we reserve the right to charge the current price for the publication/event; please see our website for full and up-to-date prices.

Sample pages
We do not provide inspection copies of our publications. However, we are able to provide sample pages for better evaluation of many of our publications (though not all). Please see our website for details.

Magazine subscriptions
Our magazines are usually issued quarterly. Your subscription is for four issues. (Please see your original order form or website for the specific subscription period of your magazine title.)

Once you have received all four issues your subscription will be automatically renewed for the next subscription period; your subscription will also be automatically upgraded to the Premium or Premium Plus subscription rate. Re-subscription is not compulsory; however cancellation of the subscription will be necessary at the end of your current subscription period. We reserve the right to increase prices on renewal.

Magazine Returns and cancellations
You have 14 days from the date of receipt to return the first issue of the magazine and cancel your new order or renewal. You must return the magazine to us in its original condition. The cost of the return is made at your expense. Returns should be made to Forum Business Media Ltd, 3rd Floor, Regal House, 70 London Road, Twickenham TW1 3QS. Please ensure you quote your customer number with all returns – without this information we will be unable to identify who has made the return meaning that we will not be able to cancel your subscription and invoice. No returns will be accepted outside the 14-day cancellation period and our invoice will remain payable.
