Provision of the product
The Product is provided by Booost Education Limited, a company incorporated in the United Kingdom under number 13039225 whose registered office is at 7 St John Street, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire NG18 1QH (“Booost”).
To purchase a licence allowing you to access and use the Product (your "Licence") you must either complete our online order/ registration form or sign or otherwise confirm your agreement to our offline order form which we have issued to you (the "Order Form"). Your Agreement with us will only start once we have confirmed in writing that we have accepted your Order Form and we reserve the right to decline to accept your Order Form if we consider it appropriate to do so (in our absolute discretion). You, or your Users (as defined below), may be required to use a product licence key to activate the Product, as part of this process.
Your Agreement with us will consist of the Order Form and these Terms and Conditions to the exclusion of any other terms you may seek to impose or incorporate, including any standard terms and conditions for the purchase of goods or Products you may issue to us, or make reference to, whether in any purchase order or similar documents or otherwise.
We offer two kinds of Licence. An “Individual Licence" allows a single named individual to download, access and use the Product in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. An "Enterprise Licence" can be purchased by a named University, school, college, business or organisation and allows an agreed number of their students, staff or personnel to download, access and use the Product. In either case, you are responsible for all use which is made of the Product by any individual, students, staff, personnel or other persons who are permitted to use the Product under your Licence (“Users") and for ensuring that all such Users agree to and abide by these Terms and Conditions.
Each User will be allocated a user name and password or other unique identifier (“User ID”) which must only be used by the person or persons who are authorised to access and use the Product as part of the Licence you have purchased. You are responsible for all use of the Product using any User ID issued in connection with your Licence and for preventing unauthorised use of any such User ID.
If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of any User ID, you must notify Booost immediately by emailing email@example.com. If Booost reasonably believes that any User ID is being used in any way which is not permitted by these Terms and Conditions, Booost reserves the right to suspend access/ usage rights immediately on giving notice to you in accordance with clause 10 and to block access/ use from the User ID until the issue has been resolved.
By purchasing a Licence to use the Product, you represent, warrant and agree that you have provided Booost with accurate and complete information in the Order Form and that it is your responsibility to update Booost of any changes to that information (including your email address) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Product enables Users to access time management tools, specialist study advice and mental health support. The precise features and functionality available to Users, as well as any limitations or restrictions on use of the Product (including limits on the number of permitted Users and fair usage restrictions), will depend on the Licence you have purchased. Further details of the various Licences which are available, as well as the features and functionality included as part of them, can be found on our Website.
Booost is continually seeking to improve the Product. Booost reserves the right, at its discretion, to make changes to any part of the Product provided that it does not materially reduce the content or functionality.

Limitation of Liability
Booost will use its reasonable endeavours to remedy material faults in the Product, or any breach of the warranties given at clause 5.1 above, which are reported to it during your Licence.

If you (or your Users) use the Product to process or store any personal data concerning third parties (including, for example, any third party contact details stored in the Product), you must ensure that you have obtained all necessary consents and permissions and taken all other action necessary to ensure that such processing of personal data is compliant with all applicable laws concerning privacy and data protection. You agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless in respect of any claim or loss, damage or expenses we may incur or suffer as a consequence of any breach of this clause.
In the event that you use the Product to process or store any personal data concerning third parties, then to the extent that Booost processes that personal data (as defined in ANNEX 2) on your behalf in providing the Product, we each agree to comply with the provisions of ANNEX 2 with respect to that personal data.
Term and Termination
Unless otherwise stated or agreed in writing, all Licences will commence on the date that Booost accepts your Order Form and will continue for the period of your Licence. Thereafter, Individual Licences will end (unless you agree with Booost to extend or renew it), and all Enterprise Licences will automatically renew for successive annual periods (in accordance with clause 3.3) unless and until terminated in accordance with clause 9.3.
If you are a Consumer (as defined in clause 9.1) and you have purchased an Individual Licence you may cancel your Licence within 14 days of the date you purchased your Licence in accordance with clause 9 below, in which event you may be able to claim a full or (to the extent that you have made use of the Product) partial refund of any Licence Fees you have paid.
In all cases, you may terminate your Licence for convenience at any time by giving us not less than fourteen (14) days' notice in writing. However, in these circumstances, you will not be entitled to receive a refund of any Licence Fees you have already paid prior to the end of your then current Licence period. In addition, if you have purchased an Enterprise Licence which is subject to a minimum term, you must pay all Licence Fees due in respect of the Minimum Term.

Booost may terminate your Licence, and/ or terminate or suspend your access to and ability to use the Product, at any time by written notice if: (i) you have failed to pay any Licence Fees (or other fees of sums) due in respect of your Licence by the due date for payment; or (ii) you are otherwise in material breach of these Terms and Conditions and/ or your Agreement with Booost and the breach is not remedied within the period of fourteen (14) days after written notice of the breach has been given to you.
Booost may suspend your access to the Product at any time with immediate effect, if it reasonably believes you are in breach of clause 4.
Booost may discontinue the Product at any time by giving you not less than thirty (30) days' notice in writing. In this situation, your Licence will usually cease on the next renewal date (or such later date as Booost may specify). In rare cases, Booost may need to terminate your Licence before the end of your current Licence period where Booost (acting reasonably) considers it necessary to do so. However, under those circumstances you will be entitled to receive a pro-rata refund of any Licence Fees you have paid for the unexpired (or unused) part of your Licence.
You may terminate this Agreement and receive a pro-rata refund of any Licence Fees you have paid, if Booost is in material breach of these Terms and Conditions and/ or its Agreement with you and the breach is not remedied within the period of thirty (30) days after written notice of the breach has been given to Booost.
