We offer two levels of annual subscription service called Individual Subscription and Corporate Subscription. We reserve the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that we make available to different categories of user which means that we may increase or reduce the content and services that are only available to paying subscribers from time to time.
The subscription services are available worldwide, subject to local internet access. We reserve the right to offer any subscription packages to residents of certain territories only. We may terminate subscriptions or registrations of anyone who is not a resident of those territories.
Subscribers must be aged 18 years or over.

- - LRI Reports;
- - The Live Rice Index;
- - The latest country specific rice market news;
- - The rice price history; and
- - Archive of rice market news.
(the "Restricted Content")
The Corporate Subscription allows the corporate subscriber to offer to its Staff (as defined below) access to the restricted areas of the Site via the internet and via mobile devices to include access to the Restricted Content.
We will provide the corporate subscriber with an access code which will allow its Staff access to the restricted areas of the Site as "Registered Users".
In these terms and conditions "Staff" means any employees of the corporate subscriber only and does not include, in relation to associations and trade bodies, members of that association or trade body.
By subscribing to the Corporate Subscription you warrant that you have the necessary authority to bind the company.
We will try to process your subscription promptly but we do not guarantee that your subscription will be activated by any specific time. By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a subscription on these terms and condition. Your offer will only be accepted by us and a contract formed when we provide you with access to your subscription or the access code as appropriate by email, which will be after we have verified your payment details. We reserve the right to reject any offer in our sole discretion, for any reason.
When you subscribe you must provide us with complete and accurate payment information. By submitting payment details you confirm that you are entitled to purchase a subscription using those payment details. If we do not receive payment authorisation or any authorisation is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your access to your subscription.
If you are entitled to a refund under these terms and conditions we will credit that refund to the card or other payment method you used to submit payment, unless it has expired in which case we will contact you.
The annual subscription price will be made clear to you on our sign-up pages or otherwise during the sign-up process and may vary from time to time or by country. You agree to pay the annual subscription fees at the rates notified to you at the time you take out your annual subscription. We will charge you in British Pounds Sterling.

If we incorrectly state a price to you whether online or otherwise, we are not obliged to provide you with a subscription at that price, even if we have mistakenly accepted your offer to buy a subscription at that price, and reserve the right to subsequently notify you of any pricing error. If we do this, you may cancel the subscription without any obligation to us and we will refund you any money you have paid us in full or you may pay the correct price. If you refuse to exercise either of these choices then we may cancel your subscription and will refund you any money you have paid to us in full. We will always act in good faith in determining whether a genuine pricing error has occurred.
In addition to any annual subscription fees you pay, you are responsible for paying any internet connection or other telecommunications charges that you may incur by accessing the Site or using the services available on it.
We may from time to time and at our discretion make a trial available to users, in which case we will only charge you for your subscription with effect from the expiry of the trial period. No more than one trial per subscriber is allowed in any twelve month period.
Your Cancellation Rights and Refunds
