We will do our best to be available when you need to call.

If your question is urgent, we will do our best to accommodate you, but do not guarantee that we will be immediately available.
Please respect the time of our legal advisors. Be clear with your questions and the solutions you are hoping to achieve. We can support you most efficiently this way.
We want to ensure you are satisfied with the value you receive from your subscription. We’re happy to discuss options with you to get the best value from your subscription.

If we form the view that your use of our services has become excessive, and falls outside fair use of the services offered, we will discuss this with you before taking any further action, such as terminating your access to our services.
