Part E – Accessing Computing Services
13. Accessing Computing Services
13.1 If we agree to supply Computing Services to you (i.e. accept your registration as a registered user or member of the kind prescribed by us from time to time that may access such Computing Services), you will be able to access those Computing Services through our System subject to these T&Cs.
13.2 Generally, you will only be able to access the Computing Services if:
(a) you have a current and valid registration or membership of the type that allows you to access the Computing Services;
(b) you have paid all subscription fees in relation to your registration or membership; and
(c) you hold sufficient current and valid Compute Credits for the nature and extent of the Computing Services you wish to access.
13.3 As a general explanation only, and subject to the terms of these T&Cs, the operation of the Computing Services will be as follows:
(a) we will load or install on the Third Party System the Programs;
(b) you will access the Programs on the Third Party System via our System;
(c) you will input data and other information into the Programs via our System (or our System may direct you to directly input data and information directly into the Programs and/or Third Party System); and
(d) the Programs will be processed by those Third Party System, and generate certain outputs that the Programs are capable of generating.
14. Compute Credits
14.1 Before you can access the Computing Services, you must purchase and hold Compute Credits, pursuant to clause 18.
14.2 Compute Credits will have attached to each of them, the right to use the Computing Services for a certain period of time as specified on our Website or System, or otherwise as amended pursuant to clauses 14.3 - 14.5 (Compute Credit Value).
14.3 We may amend or vary the Compute Credit Value at any time at our discretion (including any Compute Credits which have been previously purchased, but not used) by giving you 30 days’ written notice, or such longer time as we may determine.
14.4 If we amend the Compute Credit Value, such amendment will come into effect at the end of 30 days from when we give you written notice pursuant to clause 14.3 (or such longer time as stated in such notice), and that new Compute Credit Value will apply to:
(a) all previously purchased but unused Compute Credits; and
(b) any Compute Credits purchased after such dates.
14.5 Without limiting the generality of clause 14.3 and the reasons or circumstances in which we may amend the Compute Credits Value, we may amend such Compute Credits Value if or when:
(a) the cost or expense to us of granting you (or other customers, generally) access to the Programs and/or the Third Party System changes (including, for example, due to a change in the base price for accessing the Third Party System, or exchange rates); or
(b) the availability of access to the Programs and/or the Third Party System changes or becomes limited.
14.6 As you utilise the Computing Services, your Compute Credits will be automatically applied towards the period of time that you are utilising the Computing Services, and any Compute Credits so applied will automatically be cancelled.
14.7 The time it takes to run or execute a process or operation using the Computing Services, or the number of Compute Credits applied towards the execution of such process or operation, as measured or determined by the System, will be final and conclusive evidence of that fact in the absence of manifest error (and you will be responsible for, and bear the onus of, proving any such error).
14.8 If we provide (via the System) an estimate for the expected time to run or execute a process or operation using the Computing Services, or the number of Computing Credits required, while we will try to calculate such time or number as accurately as reasonably possible, such figure will be an estimate, only, and not a guarantee or warrantee that such process or operation can be completed in such time, or that the Compute Credits required will be limited to such estimate.
15. Insufficient Compute Credits
15.1 To the extent that you are operating a Program or processing data using a Program, or wishing to do so, but the unused Compute Credits you hold are insufficient (or in our opinion, not reasonably sufficient) to complete such operation or process, we may, at our discretion:
(a) if the operation or process has not started, refuse you access to the relevant Program, Third Party System or use of the Computing Service until, in our reasonable opinion, you have purchased sufficient Compute Credits to complete such operation or process;
(b) if the operation or process has started, suspend or terminate the operation or process until, in our reasonable opinion, you have purchased sufficient Compute Credits to complete such operation or process; or
(c) permit the operation or process to continue until completion, but subsequently charge you for an amount equivalent to the price of Compute Credits (as in force at the completion of such operation or process) multiplied by the number of Compute Credits you would have needed to complete such operation or process (based on the Compute Credit Value as in force at the completion of such operation or process).
15.2 Where we suspend or terminate the operation or process of any Computing Service, or your use of any Programs on the Third Party System pursuant to paragraph 15.1(b), we are not responsible or liable under any circumstances if you have to start or perform such operation or process or any part thereof again, and for the avoidance of doubt:
(a) where, due to such suspension, you need to perform any process or operation or any part thereof again, and require access to the Computing Services, you must apply new Compute Credits to that use of the Computing Services; and
(b) we will not give you any refund for or reinstate any Compute Credits applied towards your previous access to the Computing Services for the purposes of performing any operation or process on the Programs or Third Party System which need to be re-performed.
16. Expiry of Compute Credits
16.1 Except as otherwise expressly provided in these T&Cs, we will not be liable to give you a refund for any Compute Credits (including any unused or expired Compute Credits) whatsoever.
16.2 Subject to clause 16.3, we may elect that your unused Compute Credits automatically and immediately expire, and cannot be applied towards future Computing Services, if your registration as a registered user or member who can access Computing Services expires or terminates for any reason (including, for example, pursuant to clause 4.5).
16.3 Despite clause 16.2, we may, at our sole and absolute discretion, elect to allow Compute Credits to continue (and not immediately expire) following the termination, expiry, or other end of your registration as a registered user or member who can access the Computing Services, for any length of time as we see fit.

17.2 If you are a registered user or member of a particular type in relation to which Subscription Fees apply (Subscription Member), we may determine the length of time that you are able to remain as a Subscription Member given the amount of Subscription Fees paid by you (e.g. a monthly Subscription Fee will allow you to remain that type of registered user or member for one month) (Subscription Term).
17.3 If you are a Subscription Member, you immediately cease to be a Subscription Member of that type at the end of the Subscription Term, and you will cease to have the rights and privileges of that particular type of Subscription Member unless you renew your registration as a Subscription Member (which, for the avoidance of doubt, and for the purposes of clause 17.5, is taken to be the termination and expiration of your previous registration as a Subscription Member, and then you applying to be registered again to be a Subscription Member of the same type).
17.4 Any Content or material on our Website or System offering for you to become a Subscription Member is an invitation to treat only (i.e. an invitation for you to apply to become a Subscription Member of that type), and not an offer by us to you to for you to be registered as a Subscription Member.

(a) We are not required to agree to any proposed variation to the change in membership or registration type;
(b) if we agree to the change in membership or registration type, the new registration or membership type will end on the same date that your previous membership or registration would have ended on;
(c) if you are changing to a membership or registration type with a lower Subscription Fee for the balance of the Subscription Term, you will not be entitled to receive any refund of any previously paid Subscription Fees (including any difference thereof), and the difference will not be applied towards any future fees, costs or expenses whatsoever;
(d) if you are changing to a membership or registration type with a higher Subscription Fee for the balance of the Subscription Term, you must pay us, at the time of such change, the difference in the Subscription Fee for the balance of your Subscription Term and any benefits attaching to that new membership or registration type (e.g. bonus Compute Credits) will be granted to you pro-rata based on the balance of the Subscription Term at the time of such change as a proportion of the total Subscription Term.
17.7 Without limiting our remedies under these T&Cs or the law, we may refuse to process or accept your application to become a Subscription Member of a particular type if you fail to comply with clause 17.5.
17.8 Subject to the terms of these T&Cs and to the extent permitted by law, we are not required to refund to you any Subscription Fees in any circumstance, including:

18.5 Where we are entitled to charge you an amount equivalent to the number of Compute Credits you would have needed to complete a process or operation (in circumstances where you did not hold sufficient Compute Credits) pursuant to clause 15.1(c), you must pay us such amounts on demand from us (and an invoice issued by us for that purpose will be a written demand).
18.6 Subject to the terms of these T&Cs and to the extent permitted by law, we are not required to refund to you any amounts paid by you for Compute Credits in any circumstance, including:
(a) any change in the Compute Credits Value, pursuant to clauses 14.3 - 14.5;
(b) any Compute Credits not being used, or expiring, pursuant to the terms of these T&Cs; or
