10. YOUR RIGHT OF CANCELLATION AND REFUND
10.1 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Booking, or your Subscription if you are a Subscriber, during the period set out below in Clause 10.2.

10.2 Your legal right to cancel a Booking or Subscription is 14 days from the date of the acceptance of your Booking or confirmation of your Subscription (confirmed by e-mail and by Push Notification, where applicable, to you), which is when the Booking or Subscription is accepted.
10.3 However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of Services already provided.
10.5 If you cancel your Booking or Subscription in accordance with clause 10 or due to an Event Outside Our Control where we have not yet provided the Services we will refund you the price you paid for the Services or your Subscription Fee and make any refunds due to you as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days.

We will not process your Booking until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the booking process, we will treat the Booking as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
