9 PRICES AND PAYMENT
(1) We have provided you with the price of the services as either displayed on our website Order Form when you order, in the Purchase order e-mail which is either a fixed price or based on an hourly rate. Where we work on an hourly rate, we will submit an invoice to you either each working week or monthly, as we determine.

(2) Once you have submitted your Order, which can be by e-mail, telephone or any other method of communication, we will submit an invoice to you. Alternatively, if you order one of our fixed priced products available on our website, you can simply follow the instructions on the website and submit your order in this way.

(3) Payment for some services must be paid for in advance of the services commencing. Payment for all other services must be made in full, by the payment method displayed on our website for services ordered on the website, or by Cash, Standing Order, cheque or bank transfer within 7 days of the date of any invoice supplied and includes any taxes due. Please contact us for the Bank details should you wish to pay by Bank Transfer. You will have been deemed to have received any invoice if it is:

(a) Hand-delivered to your address

(b) Sent to you by Royal Mail and we have proof of posting of the invoice.

(c) Faxed or emailed (we retain a transmission log)

(4) If you do not pay or there are any problems with your payment, then once you have ordered services you are still responsible for payment. If we do not receive payment then we will charge you 2% interest per month until we receive full cleared payment.

(5) Where payment is a part of staged payments, such as weekly, then late or non-payment will automatically mean that all work will stop until such time that full payment (including any accrued or extra payment) is made. No refunds will be made.

(6) Where payment is to be made on a monthly basis for advertising or support you are charged 1 month in advance. Where you take more time than what is agreed, these overflow hours will be charged and must be paid for at the end of that month. Where you take less time than what is agreed, these remainder hours will accrue and can be taken as and when needed within the following month only. The remainder hours can only be taken for that following month and can not be carried over again. There will be no monetary rebate or discount for unused hours.
(7) We reserve the right to increase prices for either the services which arise because of an increase in parts or other outside costs beyond our reasonable control. If we do, then we will give you at least 30 days notice in writing. If you are buying as a consumer then you may cancel this agreement at any time up until 14 days before the supply of services.

On the Purchase Order you MUST specify when payment is due. I assume with the CV service that you will want payment in advance so that must be in the PO.

Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering with us, you remain anonymous to us. Cookies come in two flavours: session-based and persistent
(i) Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer
(ii) Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser. We use persistent cookies that only we can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a website user or prior website user (whatever the case may be) and to track your use. We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. These cookies expire after two years

Additionally, personnel authorised by us may update your registration information to accurately reflect any new information included in communications received from you.

If you have questions about our partner's privacy policy, you should review their policy before providing information to us. Of course, you can ensure that the personal information you provide to us is not shared with our partners (except in accordance with this policy), by visiting us directly instead of clicking-through from one of our partners.
