More a question than a vent.

I have set up an unlimited pass with cineworld and must say it is excellent. NOT A CINEWORLD VENT!!!!!!!
I have set up a direct debit and filled in the application form online which means I am now in a 12 month contract.....or am I.
I have not signed a single piece of paperwork, nor have I signed any contract with Cineworld, as I said, it was all done online....So..
If in 6 months time I do not want the service could I just cancel the direct debit and let cineworld rant for a while although there is nothing legally they can do....or.
Would they be able to legally hold me to a 12 month contract even though I have not signed anything (just clicked the agree to the terms and conditions malarkiy on the small print).
As I said, it is not a Cineworld vent and I have no intentions of cancelling, but I am just curious as to whether a contract can be binding without a signature.

    You don't always have to sign things for an agreement to be binding nowadays. The T&Cs malarkey will no doubt answer your question...

    Cineworld seems fantastic if you live near one of the partaking cinemas!
    Should've = Should HAVE (not 'of')
    Would've = Would HAVE (not 'of')

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)

    The Unlimited Pass is awesome. You won't want to cancel. I've seen loads since I got mine last November.

    But you are committed - whether they would bother to chase you for it is anybody's guess.
    Don't grow up. Its a trap!

    Peace, love and labradors!
  • As there is no credit it doesnt need to be a written contract, verbal is fine and I would say you have done enough to be said to have accepted the contract on their terms
  • My wife and two daughters have these and have had the value back within 3 months ...... well worth it IMO

    I've had mine for two years and wouldn't be without it :j . If you go at peak times you only need to visit two or three times a month and it's more than paid for itself - it's a great moneysaver and enables me to see a lot more films than I'd see without it. :T
    Some people hear voices, some see invisible people. Others have no imagination whatsoever :D

    Now I know it is a great deal and that is not what I want to discuss, but as you can see from the T&C's anyone who takes out an unlimted card online will not have signed an agreement, so I want to know whether it is enforcable if anyone just cancels the direct debit?.
    .
    .Agreement Date:
    the date the Agreement is made, which is the later of the dates we and you sign the Agreement;
    2. GENERAL
    2.1 The Conditions apply to any subscription to the Unlimited Card and by signing the Agreement you and the Payer agree to be legally bound by the Conditions.
    6. PAYMENT OF FEES
    6.1 The subscription fee for the Unlimited Card for the Initial Period is the amount then in force on the date you sign the Agreement.
    MONTHLY PLAN
    6.3 The Monthly Plan runs from month to month for as long as you make your monthly subscription payments and the following procedure will apply:
    (a) The Payer shall pay the following amount at the time of signing the agreement:

    Electronic signature by ticking the agreement box would be acceptable in my opinion

    ....but surely I ticked the box to agree to the T&C's, therefore I agreed to pay WHEN I sign the agreement.
    I cant see how agreeing to the T&C's means I have signed anything.
    Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree here but when you apply in the cinema do you have to sign an agreement?
  • I rent a flat cash in hand for 6 months, they have proof I have paid the rent for that time, do I have a contract - yes.

    Basically if you don't dispute the charges to your account you're agreeing you have a contract - stop trying to scam people and grow up.

    From my original post....

    How am I trying to scam people you stupid little person?????
