As an Talent you will be offered a length of duration of 1 year to be

existing subscription order. The auto-renewing of your subscription order will
continue until such time that your order cancellation request has been received

Each subscription order is subject to VAT when applicable, at the prevailing
Government rulings in operation at the time.
Each subscription order and Profile order can be paid via approved major
debit/credit card providers.
Each Profile order is paid in full at the time of order and prior to any
Service being provided by us.
Where a subscription order or Premium Profile order is being offered at a

Subscription order or Premium Profile order cancellation will occur at the end
of the subscription order or Premium Profile order length of duration that has
been ordered or auto-renewed. For example, if you have ordered a duration of 31
year, then the cancellation will come into effect at the end of the 1 year you
have ordered. The cancellation will stop future duration subscription orders or
Premium Profile orders auto-renewing provided that you give us sufficient time
to process the cancellation before the next auto-renewal takes place (not less
than three working days before the next auto-renewal subscription order or
Premium Profile order is due to be applied).

cancellation request (not less than three working days before the next
auto-renewal subscription order is due to commence).

time that you cancel your next subscription order or Premium Profile order.
Your contract is for the length of duration of each subscription order or
Premium Profile order at each renewal.
If you are an existing Artist, your first order payment will be taken as soon
as your order is approved by us. Thereafter each auto-renewing subscription
order or Premium Profile order payment will be taken on the auto-renewing order
date. We will notify you in advance of any changes to any order fees. The
subsequent subscription order or Premium Profile order fees will begin on the
next renewal date. We will send you email confirmation of the new length of
duration order, fees and payment dates once it has been placed.
If we are unable to collect your payment on the due date, we will attempt
collection a second time. You will receive an email to explain this. If we fail
to collect on our second attempt, our Services will be put on hold or
cancelled, depending on the circumstances, and you will receive an email
setting out the options open to you. Your subscription order contract will
continue to run until its original end date, even if Services have been put on
hold due to non-payment; your subscription order contract end date will not be
extended to compensate you for any time Services are on hold.

permanently where our staff or other persons are subject to abusive, offensive
or threatening behaviour.
You will be contacted on each order’s auto-renewal. Should you decide to
terminate your ongoing subscription orders or Premium Profile orders with us
then your profile will still be available for the duration of time quoted at
your last order renewal. Should your order lapse, we may endeavour to offer you
another chance to re-join before your details are removed. We may also
endeavour to contact you with one more opportunity to re-join after your
renewal order lapses. We do not guarantee to make any follow up offers. We

after your renewal order has lapsed.
