    On receipt of your payment, you will receive an email from PayPal confirming your payment and, later, a second email from me with a Username and Password which will give you unrestricted access to the Technical section for one year. This email will only be sent to your PayPal email address. It sometimes takes me a few hours to get you your access information, depending on whether I am at my computer or not. I do my best to respond in a timely manner so there is no need to send me a separate email asking for your password.

    The longest I have ever taken to respond is 24 hours. If I am going to be away from my email for longer than that a warning notice will be displayed on the home page.

    Your access is good for 1 year from the date on which I issue your password.

    You will be reminded two weeks before expiration of your subscription with renewal details.
