2.8 Depending on your subscription package, your Account Owner will be entitled to link a certain number of additional Users within your organisation to your Subscribed Entity Account. However, each individual User must register for his or her own User ID to gain access to the Subscribed Entity Account. It will be the Account Owner’s responsibility to link up other Users within your organisation to your Subscribed Entity Account but these Users will only be given such functionality with respect to the Subscribed Entity Account as prescribed by the Account Owner and your Subscribed Services.
2.9 Subject to paragraph 2.8, you are not allowed to share your Subscribed Entity Account information (including your User ID) or give access to the Services or any Content through your Subscribed Entity Account to anyone else. You will procure that your Users comply with this provision, and keep their own User ID confidential.

2.10 You are responsible, both to Profilir and to any third party, for all use, activity and charges associated with or occurring under your Subscribed Entity Account (including that of any Users linked to your Subscribed Entity Account) and for preventing unauthorised use of your Subscribed Entity Account and User ID. We may rely on any activity taking place under or through your Subscribed Entity Account and may treat such activity as being authorised by you. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your User ID or any payment information, you must notify us immediately. We recommend that you and your Users do not select an obvious password and that you change it regularly.

Subscription fees and taxes
3.1 For the current fees payable for subscribed Services and other features offered in connection with our site (Subscription Fees), please refer to our Services Pricelist. All Subscription Fees are shown inclusive of VAT. Profilir reserves the right to change the Subscription Fees it charges or introduce new fees from time to time provided Profilir will not increase the Subscription Fees payable by you at any time during the current term of your subscription. Unless otherwise notified to you, all Subscription Fees are payable in advance. Profilir will provide you with reasonable prior notice of any increase in the Subscription Fees payable. If you object to any such change, your only remedy is to cancel or opt out of renewing your subscription (refer to paragraph 4 below) prior to the change coming into effect. If you do not cancel your subscription within that period, you will be deemed to have accepted the change.
3.2 Unless stated otherwise by us, in order to purchase a subscription for the Services you must submit valid payment details (credit or debit card or bank account details) to our online system. We will not collect, process or hold any of your payment details at any time. Valid payments will be processed through a secure third party service provider on an external website. You may be required to accept the third party provider’s own terms and conditions relating to the use of their payment site before proceeding with payment of your Subscription Fees. The third party provider will notify you via email of the receipt of your payment and the commencement of your subscription, and an electronic invoice will be generated and sent to your Account Owner’s registered email address.
3.3 If any Subscription Fees or other charges billed to your credit or debit card or to your bank account are declined or unpaid for any reason, we will have the right to suspend your subscription until such Subscription Fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all costs (including legal fees) incurred by us in collecting any unpaid Subscription Fees plus interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% per annum above Barclays Bank Plc's base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. Notwithstanding our other rights and remedies for non-payment in this paragraph, if payment in full is not received from you on the due date, we reserve the right to cancel your subscription. Subscription Fees will apply whether or not you or your Users actually use your subscription.
3.4 Your subscription may be renewed in accordance with paragraph 4 on the expiry of your subscription term (as applicable and as selected by your Account Owner). Unless you notify us otherwise, Subscription Fees and all other fees and charges associated with your subscription (including but not limited to any applicable taxes) will be billed automatically to the credit or debit card or bank account provided by your Account Owner at the time of registration for the Services. It is your responsibility to keep your billing details updated and notify us of any changes. For the purposes of any automatic renewal, we will assume that all of the information related to your credit or debit card or bank account remains valid and we will instruct our third party service provider to process the relevant Subscription Fees.
