We offer three levels of annual Subscription Services called “Basic Subscription”, “Professional Subscription” and “Business Subscription”. We reserve the right to vary the amount of content and types of service that we make available to different types of users or subscribers, which means that we may increase or reduce the content and services that are only available to paying Subscribers from time to time. It is at the discretion of Live Rice Index to determine if a Subscriber is accessing the LRI content and services under the appropriate tier of Subscription. 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.
The Basic Subscription provides only the individual subscriber (i.e. the “Authorised User”) access to the restricted areas of the LRI Website via the internet and mobile devices to include access to the following (without limitation):
(The "Basic Restricted Content") Basic Subscriptions are for the benefit of the named Subscriber only (i.e. the “Authorised User”). Further dissemination, sharing, reproduction, provision or use of the LRI information and content for the benefit of others, even internally, is not permitted. In order to download and use the LRI Data you will need an LRI Data License, which is available from the LRI Store. All use of the LRI Data will be governed by the LRI Data Agreement.

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 Subscription 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 prices 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 or United States Dollar upon request. You may also have to pay any applicable local taxes. We reserve the right to increase the price of the Subscription Services. However, we will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your Subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.
If any fees paid to Demeter Reports Ltd. hereunder are subject to withholding taxes by a country other than Demeter Reports Ltd. country of tax residence (“Home Country”), the Subscriber shall provide to Demeter Reports Ltd. an original receipt from the tax authorities of such other country evidencing the amount of tax withheld. The Subscriber shall furnish such receipt when the Subscriber pays such a fee to Demeter Reports Ltd. or as soon thereafter as is practicable. If Demeter Reports Ltd. is denied a foreign tax credit due to the failure of the Subscriber to provide satisfactory evidence of the amount withheld, the Subscriber shall pay to Demeter Reports Ltd. an amount sufficient to compensate Demeter Reports Ltd., on an after-tax basis, for the credit denied. The foregoing obligation of the Subscriber shall survive the termination of any Subscription. If a tax treaty exists between the Home Country and the other country subjecting the fees to withholding taxes, Demeter Reports Ltd. hereby elects to apply the withholding rate applicable under such tax treaty. If the Subscriber requires a special certificate from Demeter Reports Ltd. to make the election, the certificate must be provided to Demeter Reports Ltd. when the LRI Subscription is, or any additional products are, purchased.
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 LRI Website 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 (1) trial per Subscriber is allowed in any twelve (12) month period.
If you cancel your Subscription before we have started providing any part of it to you; in which case we will provide you with a full refund. If you cancel your Subscription after we have started providing any part of your Subscription to you; you agree that your Subscription will continue (unless otherwise terminated in accordance with these terms) for a period of twelve (12) months. This means that you are not entitled to a refund once we have started providing any part of your Subscription to you, except in the very limited circumstances which are referred to in these Subscription Terms and Conditions. This right to cancel does not apply to certain categories of products and services, such as those made available through the LRI Store, including digital products or software which are not supplied in a physical format (e.g. by PDF or on a DVD), once download or used (whichever is earlier).
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Subscription if you breach these Subscription Terms and Conditions, with or without notice and without further obligation to you. You will not be entitled to any refund in these circumstances. If however we terminate or suspend your Subscription for any other reason and/or permanently cease publishing the LRI Website, the content or cease to provide Subscription Services then, unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will provide you with a pro rata refund to your credit card or other payment method you used to submit payment, which means that we will refund you with any amounts that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your Subscription.
We aim to update the LRI Website regularly, and may change the Subscription Content for each Subscription tier at any time.

The LRI shall have the right to terminate the LRI Subscription by providing written notice to the Subscriber within thirty (30) days following receipt of such notice of change of control. If the LRI does not elect to terminate the LRI Subscription, the new owners of the Subscriber shall assume all of the Subscriber’s obligations under these Subscription Terms and Conditions and shall be responsible for adhering to all of the terms.
