5.2 You may: (a) use the software for your personal development purposes on one personal computer or device at any one time if the Licence is a single-user licence; (b) if the software fails, contact us and We shall use our reasonable endeavors to remedy the defect within a reasonable time frame.

5.5 You will not lend, sell, swap or otherwise compromise the integrity of your personal login details.
5.6 Unless otherwise agreed between yourself and Hudson (or specified anywhere on the Hudson website), the duration of your course will last for a period of 12 months (unless stated otherwise on the course page at the time of purchase) from the date your login details are emailed to you.
5.7 In the email we send your course activation code, we will clearly state when you must take your exams by. This is usually within 12 months from the date the email containing your course activation code is sent. For the avoidance of any doubt, the duration of your course will last for a period of 12 months (unless stated otherwise on the course page at the time of purchase) from the date your login details or course activation code are emailed to you.
5.8 Some courses on our website auto-renew after 12 months. All courses that do auto-renew, have this information clearly specified where they are advertised on our website. For these courses, once 12 months has lapsed since you enrolled on the course, you will automatically be switched to a rolling monthly subscription at a cost of £39 per month. This will be debited from the payment card you used to enrol on the course the first time. Payment will be taken on the 1st of each month commencing on the 13th month from the date of enrolment. The auto renew is not applicable to Mile2, classroom, Diploma, or live online courses. If you have purchased a course bundle with exam vouchers and the exam vouchers have expired within the 12 month period, the auto course renew feature will not extend your exam voucher expiry dates. Exams must taken within 12 months from the time of enrolment. If you do not wish to continue to access your course account after 12 months, you can cancel the auto-renew feature at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
5.9 If we have strong grounds to believe that you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of this Contract, we have the right to revoke your Licence.

6.2 If you have purchased a course or course bundle with exams included, your exam voucher/s will be valid for 12 months from the date of enrolment onto the course. Exam vouchers cannot be requested in one lump sum. Additional exams cannot booked if you already have a pending exam date. Request for an exam voucher must be made upon completion of each course and passing the course assessments.

6.5 If you have purchased a course or course bundle with exams included, and it includes MeasureUP, Kaplan, or any form of practice tests, you must score 90% four times consecutively in certification mode on the practice tests before we can book your official exams. You will have 6 months access to each practice test and can use them as many times to prepare for each exam.
