Why do I have to regularly renew my subscription?
We respect your choice as to whether you renew your subscription, so we do not renew subscriptions automatically. We will send you advance notification by e-mail or mail when it’s time to renew.

Your subscription ends automatically after 4 or 8 issues, depending on whether you’ve subscribed for 1 or 2 years. We’ll notify you when your subscription is about to run out so that you can renew.

How do I renew my subscription?
When your subscription is about to run out, we will send you an e-mail or a letter to let you know how you can renew your subscription. Follow the link in the e-mail or renew via our online shop, using your subscription number and surname.
