If we need to talk to you
From time to time, we may need to contact you about your account. We’ll normally do that by email, which is why we need a valid email address from you.

Product terms and conditions
If you buy any product or service we’ve mentioned on this website or app, you should check these terms and conditions, and the terms and conditions of the product or service itself. If there’s any contradiction between the two, the specific terms and conditions of the product or service will apply.
Nothing in these terms limits our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any matter that we cannot exclude or limit as a matter of law.
We provide the website and app free of charge and on an "as is" basis. To the extent permitted by law, (a) we disclaim any warranties, express or implied, and (b) other than as set out above, we are not liable for any loss or damage — direct or indirect and whether arising in contract, tort, or otherwise — even if we have been advised of the possibility of this loss or damage.
These limitations don’t affect your statutory rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, if applicable and any laws that replace it. If you want independent advice about your rights, you can speak to Citizens Advice or Trading Standards.
