3. PROVISION (AND LIMITATIONS) OF THE PROFITERO SERVICE
3.1 Use of the Profitero Service and the Website and access to Data are each subject to the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement (and any Contract).
3.2 To use the Website and/or the Profitero Service and/or to access Data, Client must not be a consumer and Client warrants and represents that, for the purposes of this Agreement (and any Contract), it is not a consumer.
3.3 The Profitero Service is available only through a Package (whether that Package is a Free Functionality or a Subscription).
3.4 Profitero uses proprietary algorithms and datasets which match different goods and services together and against each other, as well as grouping them in different ways. Profitero has, of necessity, made assumptions as part of those algorithms and datasets; and Client may agree or disagree with such assumptions. Nevertheless, Client represents and warrants that it uses the Profitero Service, the Website and the Data on the basis that:
3.4.1 it has no objections to the assumptions made with respect to such algorithms (which may include assumptions as to matching rules, averaging rules and availability rules) and it has no objection to the limitations of any algorithms, assumptions or datasets.
3.5 The Profitero Service and use of the Website does not include the provision of a computer or other necessary equipment or software to access the Website. To use the Website, Client will require Internet connectivity and appropriate telecommunication links and software. Profitero shall not be liable for any telephone or other costs that Client may incur.
4. PACKAGES AND PAYMENT
4.1 Free Functionality: The Package Attributes for Free Functionality are set out on the Website and/or otherwise made available by Profitero. As the name implies, Free Functionality is free of charge. Client may elect to use Free Functionality by just using that Free Functionality. However, Free Functionality may require registration by a Client (and/or may require use of a username and/or a password supplied by Profitero) before use of that Free Functionality is allowed. (Please see further Clause 8.) A legal contract comprised of this Agreement in respect of any Free Functionality is formed when the Client starts using or accessing that Free Functionality.
4.2 ‘Subscription Packages’: The prices and Package Attributes for Subscriptions are available on request from Profitero. Client may contact Profitero by phone or email for details on email@example.com or on +44 (0) 20 8123 3101. Client may also be contacted by Profitero by phone or email to discuss such details, if Client has registered on the Website (as to which please see Clause 8). Once a Subscription is applicable to a Client, any functionality that would normally be provided as part of Free Functionality, is deemed also to form part of, and is deemed also to be provided pursuant to, that Subscription. In respect of a Subscription, Client must enter into a Contract for that Subscription before use of that Subscription will be permitted. A contract is formed when Profitero and Client have each executed a Subscription Order in respect of the relevant Subscription.
4.3 Changes to Package Attributes: Package Attributes may be changed at any time by Profitero. However, in respect of Subscriptions which have already been purchased and paid for (and which are therefore subject to a Subscription Order), Package Attributes will only be altered via a new Subscription Order, provided always that Profitero can always (without a new Subscription Order) add new features to a Subscription (by way of trial or otherwise) by way of expanded Package Attributes (or otherwise) at no extra cost to Client, for whatever period Profitero see fit.
4.4 Renewing or upgrading a Subscription: The term of a Contract for a Subscription shall be 12 months unless specified otherwise in the relevant Subscription Order (but whatever that term is, Profitero call it the “Subscription Fixed Term”). In respect of any Clients who wish to renew a Subscription mid-term, such renewal shall take effect at the end of the Subscription Fixed Term. A Subscription Order may contain provision for automatic renewal of the a Contract at the end of its term. However, in respect of any upgrading (or other alteration) of a Subscription, unless specified otherwise in the any subsequent Subscription Order, such upgrade (or other alteration) shall take place within the Subscription Fixed Term (which Subscription Fixed Term shall remain unchanged, unless with the prior written agreement of both the Client and Profitero through a new Subscription Order).
4.6 Payment: Payment shall be by such method as Profitero indicates it is prepared to accept and in the currency noted on the invoice. Fees shall always be paid and payable without set-off, reduction or withholding on any account whatsoever.
4.7 Variation of Fees: Profitero may vary the Fees from time to time provided that it does not vary such Fees in respect of any Subscription during the term of the Contract applicable to that Subscription (but may do so in respect of that Subscription in respect of any renewal of that Subscription).
4.8 Late Payment: If Client is overdue with any payment due (including Fees) then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Profitero, Profitero may:
4.8.1 charge interest on the amount due but unpaid at the annual rate of interest set under Section 6 of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 from time to time from the due date until payment (after as well as before judgment), such interest to run from day to day and to be compounded monthly;
4.8.2 Profitero reserves the right to suspend the provision of the Profitero Service to Client until Client has rectified matters; and/or
4.8.3 terminate the affected Contract (or this Agreement) forthwith by notice in writing to Client.
4.9 Cost increase: If the cost to Profitero in providing the Profitero Service under any Contract increases as a result of any breach of the Agreement (or any Contract) by Client, or the supply of incorrect or inadequate information by Client, or any change to the law or any other reason beyond Profitero’ reasonable control, such increase shall be added to the Fees payable in respect of, and under, the relevant Contract. Profitero shall notify Client as soon as reasonably practicable in advance of any such increase.
5. WARRANTIES AND SERVICE LEVELS
5.1 Main warranty: Profitero warrants that it shall use reasonable care and skill in the provision of the Profitero Service, the Website and the provision of the Data (whether in respect of a Contract or not).
5.2 Non-responsibility for data source: When Profitero compares goods and services or displays business intelligence on any other matters including Data, although Profitero uses its reasonable endeavours to make such comparisons honestly and fairly, Profitero is dependent on raw data underlying the Data, which underlying raw data is sourced from outside Profitero. Subject to Clause 5.1, Profitero does not warrant and Profitero expressly excludes all liability in respect of the accuracy, completeness, fitness for purpose or legality of any Data or other information accessed using the Profitero Service or accessed via the Website or otherwise communicated to Client (by email, by hard copy printout from the Website or otherwise). Client agrees that sole responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, fitness for purpose or legality of information relating to a Retailer, Data or information as to goods or services or other data from a Retailer shall rest with the relevant Retailer (or manufacturer, if that information is sourced from a manufacturer, such as that on ‘back of pack’) or other person from whom such information or data is sourced; save to the extent that Profitero may not have complied with Clause 5.1.
5.3 Free Functionality: Subject to Clause 5.1, in respect of use of the Profitero Service and/or the Website and/or the Data which is subject to a Free Functionality, Client expressly agrees that use of the Profitero Service and the Website and Data is at Client’s sole risk and that the Profitero Service and the Website and the Data are provided on an “as is” and “as available” and “with all faults” basis and without warranties or representations of any kind either express or implied.
5.4 Subscriptions: Subject to Clause 5.1, in respect of use of the Profitero Service and/or the Website and/or the Data which is in respect of a Subscription, Client expressly agrees that use of the Profitero Service and the Website and Data is at Client’s risk. However, Profitero shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Data is updated regularly as further detailed below in Clauses 5.4.1 and 5.4.2
5.4.1 Service Levels in general: Client acknowledges that the Data is not updated continually and ceaselessly. It is Client’s responsibility to verify actual prices and other details from independent sources.
5.4.2 Service Levels in detail: The following service level is offered:
126.96.36.199 In respect of: (a) Online Retailers, price and price promotions which appear within the Data are updated daily except in the case of: (i) technical glitches at a relevant Retailer’s online store; and/or (ii) maintenance down-time at a relevant Retailer’s online store.
188.8.131.52 Technical errors affecting the Website and the availability of the Profitero Service and Data may happen but, in respect of Subscriptions only, will not usually occur on more than 5 occasions in a year (each such occasion lasting for maximum 24 hours).
184.108.40.206 The price of a good or service within a particular Retailer will continue to be displayed as part of the Data for several days, even if Profitero notices a temporary shortage of that good or service. However, if such good or service is not restocked by a Retailer after several more days (as to which, the precise time period varies according to tweaking of the Profitero’ relevant proprietary algorithms) then such good or service will be removed from current Data (but may continue to appear in historical Data); although Profitero only warrants this service level for Subscriptions.
220.127.116.11 The Data will display (and support) the vast majority of the common offer types, ‘special promotion’ types and ‘bundling types’ used by the Retailers. However, there may be non-standard offers or non-standard promotions or complex bundling deals, which are, or will be, offered by the Retailers that may not appear in the Data (or may appear inaccurately in the Data). The Profitero Service is used on this basis. Profitero continues to develop new algorithms on an ongoing basis to bring more offer types, ‘special promotion’ types and ‘bundling types’ into the ambit of the Profitero Service so as to continually attempt to improve the accuracy of the Data.
18.104.22.168 New goods or services offered by the Retailers or new goods or services from particular manufacturers and suppliers may take several days to be appear and/or to be updated within any current Data.
5.5 Profitero will use reasonable endeavours to correct any errors or omissions as soon as practicable after being notified of them in writing. However, subject to Clause 5.1:
5.5.1 Profitero does not guarantee that the Profitero Service or the Website will be free of faults; and
5.5.2 Profitero does not accept liability for any errors or omissions. In the event of a fault in the Profitero Service, Client should report it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

5.7 Profitero warrants that Profitero has taken reasonable steps (using industry-standard virus-checking software) with respect to the Profitero Service and the Website to check for viruses and anything else which may have a harmful effect on any technology; but subject to that, Profitero does not warrant that the Profitero Service or the Website is free from viruses or anything else which may have a harmful effect on any technology.
5.8 Subject to Clause 5.1, Profitero does not warrant and Profitero excludes all Liability (as defined in Clause 10.9.2) in respect of the accuracy, completeness, fitness for purpose or legality of any information or Data accessed using the Profitero Service or Website; and Profitero exclude all Liability (as defined in Clause 10.9.2) of any kind for the transmission or the reception of or the failure to transmit or to receive any material of whatever nature.
5.9 Profitero assumes no responsibility for the content or services of any other websites or services to or from which the Website or the Profitero Service has links.
5.10 Subject to Clause 5.1, Client acknowledges that Profitero shall not have any responsibility for any business decisions taken by Client as a result of the Profitero Services (or the Data) or any use of the Profitero Services (or the Data) by Client or any other person.

This is true generally save that in respect of a Subscription, this will only be the case for maintenance reasons or for reasons set out elsewhere in this Agreement (or any Contract).
6.2 Profitero reserves the right to change, modify, substitute, suspend or remove without notice any information or Data or service on the Website or forming part of the Profitero Service from time to time. Client’s access to the Website and/or the Profitero Service and/or Data may also be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. In the case of Subscriptions, Profitero will attempt to restore such access as soon as Profitero reasonably can.
6.3 Subject to Clause 4.3, Profitero may at any time withdraw any Retailer (or any goods or services of a Retailer) or data source from (or add a new Retailer or other data source to) the Profitero Service.
