25) Can I pay for my monthly subscription by stop order instead of direct debit?

No. In order to keep administration costs to a minimum we do not have a debtors department to control the large volume of payments. For this reason we have teamed up with an independent, secure payment company to handle our collections. We can assure you that you will not experience any problems should you wish to terminate, as we are in control and not the banks.
