7.7 Your subscription will automatically expire at the end of the Subscription Term unless you renew your subscription. We will notify you of the start and end dates of the current Subscription Term by email.
7.8 We will send you an email before the expiry of each Subscription Term so that you have the option to renew your subscription before it expires. If you renew your subscription, your selected payment method will be charged for the fees for the Treatment for the next Subscription Term.
7.9 When you purchase a non-prescription Treatment, or subscribe for a prescription Treatment, we will ask you to provide us with valid, up-to-date credit or debit card details. By submitting an order to us through the Site, you are confirming that the payment details provided on your order are valid and correct.
7.10 If we are unsuccessful in charging your debit or credit card and have still not received payment within 7 days of informing you, we may (without responsibility to you) suspend or temporarily disable all or part of your access to the Service and we shall be under no obligation to provide the Service (or any part of it) while the relevant payment(s) remains unpaid. This does not affect any other rights and remedies available to us.

8.3 We and the Pharmacy are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the Treatment is delayed by an event outside our or the Pharmacy’s control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

8.4 If you are not at home when the Treatment is delivered. If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the Treatment cannot be posted through your letterbox, the delivery company that the Pharmacy uses to make deliveries may leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery.
8.5 When you become responsible for the Treatments. Any Treatment delivered to you will be your responsibility from the time the Pharmacy delivers the Treatment to the address you gave us.
8.6 When you own the Treatments. You will own any Treatment delivered to you once we have received payment in full.
9. Suspension of supply of Treatments
9.1 Reasons we or the Pharmacy may suspend the supply of the Treatment to you.
We or the Pharmacy may have to suspend the supply of Treatments to you to:
(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
(b) update the Treatment to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
(c) make changes to the Treatment as requested by you or notified by us to you.
9.2 Your rights if we suspend the supply of the Treatment. We will contact you in advance to tell you we or the Pharmacy will be suspending supply of the Treatment, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the supply of the Treatment for longer than one month, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Treatments that are not delivered to you. You may contact us to end the contract for a Treatment if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than one month and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the Treatment in respect of the period after you end the contract.
9.3 We may also suspend supply of the Treatment if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the Treatment when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within 10 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the Treatment until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending the supply of the Treatment. We will not suspend the supply of the Treatment where you dispute the unpaid invoice. We will not charge you for the Treatment during the period for which supply is suspended. As well as suspending the supply of the Treatment, we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments.
