You may be required to confirm in writing that you are no longer using any resources that have previously been downloaded.

4.2 The Company will send you an email to acknowledge acceptance of your order which will bring into existence a legally binding contract between the parties, subject to these conditions.
4.3 After activation of your username and password, all Resources which are included as part of your Membership, will be made available to your account in a format for you to download.
4.4 Resources will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
4.5 It is your responsibility to ensure that School procedures are adhered to when you register to become a Member and/or place an order to purchase certain Resources via this website.
4.6 Where an order has been placed in error, you have 24 hours to notify us in writing of your wish cancel. Failure to do so will result in the continued application of article 4.2 above.
5.1 Membership includes those who buy membership. Where you register to become a Member, please note the following:
5.1.1 If you choose to ‘buy full membership’ an invoice will be issued immediately. Once you have sent payment to AssemblyBox via BACS or credit card payment, your account username and password will be activated.
5.2 The Membership Fee is payable within 14 days, at which time your account will be activated. As soon as payment is received, accounts are activated.
5.3 If you do not wish to renew your Membership after the first year or subsequent years thereafter, you must contact us in writing or via email at least 30 days before the Due Date. Our contact details are below. If we do not receive such written notification then Membership will run for a further year and we will automatically issue an invoice for renewal.
5.4 Any correspondence relating to your Membership will be sent to the teacher who is addressed in our most recent correspondence with the School. If this contact name changes, it is the responsibility of the School to inform us to enable us to keep our records up-to-date. Should the named teacher leave the School, Membership remains with the School.
5.5 From time to time, we may have special offers which entitle the member to an extended trial period. For these special offers, members are granted the licence to use the resources fully for the specified time. Supplemental terms will be supplied with these offers and are in addition to the main terms and conditions stated.

6.3 Prices are subject to change at any time (in the Company’s sole discretion) upon the posting of such prices on the website.
6.4 Prices exclude VAT and any other applicable taxes (which will be charged at the current rate at the time of order).
