Inovar is a private limited company, incorporated in the United Kingdom under company registration number 05386964.

6.2 Types of subscriptions and what is included

6.2.1 Each publication or service we offer has multiple subscription options and therefore you should check the type of access and period of subscription/access on the web page which sets out its price and period of access.

6.2.2 For print subscriptions, these will be delivered to your nominated address, based on the number of issues stated on the subscription page, for 1 year starting with the current issue at the point of contract, unless otherwise agreed in writing. We cannot be held responsible for postal or customs delays. Digital subscriptions will be delivered to you by email during the week each issue is released.

6.2.3 We reserve full editorial control over our publications and services and reserve the right to make changes, including but not limited to, our editorial approach, the right to remove certain content which may be or become contentious, complained about, unlawful, or which has not been compiled in accordance with our requirements and includes the look, feel and functionality of our publications and services.
