5.3         Minor changes may, from time to time, be made to certain Paid Content, for example, to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, or to address technical or security issues.  These changes will not alter the main characteristics of the Paid Content and should not normally affect your use of that Paid Content.  However, if any change is made that would affect your use of the Paid Content, suitable information will be provided to you.

5.4         In some cases, as described in the relevant content descriptions, We may also make more significant changes to the Paid Content.   If We do so, We will inform you at least 7 before the changes are due to take effect.  If you do not agree to the changes, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 12.1.

5.5         Where any updates are made to Paid Content, that Paid Content will continue to match Our description of it as provided to you before you purchased your Subscription to access the Paid Content.  Please note that this does not prevent Us from enhancing the Paid Content, thereby going beyond the original description.

5.6         We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. All pricing information is reviewed and updated every 30 days.  Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 5.11 regarding VAT, however).
