13 CHARGES

13.1 Our Charges describe the amount you need to pay us for supplying the Service to the Premises in accordance with this Agreement. You must pay us the Charges for each Service (whether you have used them or someone else does). We have set out details of your Charges on the Order Confirmation and details of our Standard Tariffs are available on our Website.

13.2 Other than our rights described in clauses 13.5, 13.6 and 13.7, the Monthly Rental relating to the Service shall remain fixed during the Minimum Period.

13.3 Following the expiry of the Minimum Period, we shall be entitled to increase the Charges on giving you not less than one (1) month's prior notice. Any revised Charges shall become payable from the date set out in the notice we send you.

13.4 On top of the Monthly Rental (and any other Charges set out in the Order Confirmation), you may have to pay us for other things. Details of Miscellaneous Charges are available on our Website. These may include our costs arising from (a) any visits to your Premises (for example to install, maintain and work on the Equipment or any small moves and changes), (b) you not keeping an agreed appointment with us (or our agents), (c) reconnecting your Service, (d) your interference with our Service or Equipment and the steps we need to take to rectify this, (e) if you pay the Charges late or if we're trying to retrieve money that you owe us, (f) leaving the Agreement early in line with clauses 3.6 or 16.1.2. We reserve the right to impose any of the Miscellaneous Charges and the right to increase such Miscellaneous Charges from time to time.

13.5 We are entitled to increase the Charges on 1 December each year of the Service Period, in line with the Consumer Prices Index ('CPI') plus 3.5%. If CPI is zero or a negative amount, we'll only increase the Charges by 3.5% in the relevant year. On 1 December each year we will take the CPI percentage announced in October of the relevant year by the Office for National Statistics (or successor body) and we will round this up to the nearest whole pence. Changes to the Charges will be published on our Website or notified to you from time to time. Where you buy more than one Service from us and each is subject to the price increase, the amount of the increase is calculated on each Service separately. If you receive a discount on your Charges, the increase will be applied to this discounted amount. For example, if you pay £25 per month and the CPI value is 1.6%, this will mean your monthly payment would increase by 5.1% (CPI value of 1.62% plus 3.5%) or £1.28. So you would pay £26.28 per month from 1 December.

13.6 If we are required to replace any Equipment as a result of changes in the Law, you may need to pay us our reasonable costs in replacing the Equipment.

13.7 We reserve the right to adjust the Charges by giving notice to you at any time before the contemplated delivery date due to (i) any factor that is beyond our control (including foreign exchange fluctuations, increases in taxes and duties, and increases in labour, materials and other third party supplier costs or supply chain issues); or (ii) any request by you to change the delivery date(s), specification, quantities or types of Equipment or Services. In these circumstances we shall have the right to adjust the Charges accordingly or apply Miscellaneous Charges.
