9. Free Access & Free Weekends

We may, from time to time, offer a period of free access to Records on the Site (Free Access). Where you hold a current Subscription or unused Credits we will send you an email to let you know when a Free Access period is about to start (Free Access Email).

We may limit Free Access to a weekend (Free Weekend), or such other time period we decide. To access Records during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend, you will need to be registered and signed in to the Site.

At our discretion, some Records may not be available during Free Access or a Free Weekend (Excluded Records). The Free Access and Free Weekend Emails will provide full detail of how your particular Subscription, Micropayments or Credits are affected during the Free Access or Free Weekend.

If you have purchased Credits to access Records, during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend, your Credits will not be used to access and view Records, except for Excluded Records. Access to Excluded Records will continue to require the use of your Credits or Micropayments.

We may remove certain product features during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend such as the ability to download Record images. Usage limits may also apply on the number of Records you may access during a Free Access period or a Free Weekend - please see further below.
