(a) your right to cancel the supply of digital content (such as our ultimate assessment guides) will be lost if you have expressly consented to such content being supplied before the expiry of 14 days; or
(b) your right to cancel the supply of other Services (such as our virtual assessment centre experiences) will be lost if you have requested services to begin before the expiry of 14 days and the Services have been completed during that period; or
(c) if you request other Services (such as our virtual assessment centre experiences) to begin before the expiry of 14 days, but they have not been completed during that period, then you retain the right to cancel, but will be required to pay a proportion of the fees for Services which have already been supplied up to the date of cancellation.
4.2. If you request cancellation of the Contract outside the 14 day period under clause 4.1, additional cancellation fees will apply, as described in clause 5.
