  1. About subscriptions and billing

(a) Guest/Basic member fees / charges / “join for free”

There is no fee payable to access the Services as a Guest or as a Basic Member. However, please note that accessing the Services as a Guest or a Basic Member will only give you limited access to the use features and areas of the Services. Fuller or Full access will require to you upgrade to become a Premium Member, by paying for a subscription. When you see “JOIN FOR FREE” this means that you can sign up to the Services free of charge, however you will have limited access to features and areas of the Service and to some of the Services. Fuller or full access will require a Premium Membership respectfully.

(b) Premium member fees / charges

If you would like full access to all features and areas within the Services which also allow you to publish additional and fuller information about yourself, you should purchase a Premium Membership which is available on this website. As a Premium Member you expressly agree to us providing the Services to you immediately upon payment by you. In general, we offer: 1 month packages which can be automatically renewed on a monthly basis. The fees payable for our Premium Package is £5 per month and is set out on the Membership Categories page. Please review the payments required for your subscription membership very carefully when you come to make payment.

Please be aware that when you subscribe to a package, you will become liable for automatic renewal billing. THIS MEANS THAT THE MINIMUM DURATION OF YOUR CONTRACT WILL BE FOR THE FIRST PERIOD YOU SELECT (1 MONTH), AND THIS WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SERVICE. We reserve the right to alter the Basic Package or the Premium Subscription Package at any time and rename them and /or add items to them or delete items from them. If we alter the price of a Membership package that you are already paying for, we will provide notice of the change to you and you will have the option to cancel your membership if you do not agree with the new price being offered to you.

(c) Automatic renewal billing

We operate an automatic renewal billing policy. This means that once your first membership period has expired, for your convenience, your membership will automatically be renewed at the same rate that you signed up for using the original payment method. For example if you pay by PayPal, we will continue to debit this same PayPal as each subscription period expires. We will only debit these repeat payments when your current payment period expires and not before.

(d) Price changes

We reserve the right to alter our Membership Packages at any time and any change in your subscription price will be notified to you by email to the address you have provided when you signed up to the Services, at least 7 days prior to the new subscription price being implemented. You will then have the option to cancel your membership if you do not agree to this price change.

You must contact us by email at support@rentaskill.co.uk stating your reasons for dispute of the charge. This will enable us to accurately and promptly assess your complaint and, where justified, credit you with the disputed amount in a timely manner to avoid any further inconvenience to you.

(f) Promoted messages

We may from time to time offer users the ability to “Promote Me”. Activating this feature will mean that we will automatically broadcast custom messages created by any user, or selected from a default list of template messages, to other users. We reserve the right to select members to use the Promote Me feature. Members who use, view and choose to reply to a Promote My Account message may be charged additional fees for this service.
