Subscription Terms


Rates and payments

Prices are set by Upstream AS and displayed on the website and in the newspaper. Upstream reserves the right to increase the subscription rates. The prices quoted include the paper copy and full online access. Local taxes may apply. We accept bank transfers or credit/debit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard or American Express. Bank details are provided on all our invoices, and a credit card form is available on the back page of our invoices. We do not accept checks.


Credit terms

Upstream subscriptions are paid in advance. Credit terms are 28 days from date of invoice. Renewal invoice will be sent 6-8 weeks prior to renewal date.


Subscription terms

Upstream subscriptions are available for 3, 6, 12, 24 or 36 months. All subscriptions are automatically renewed, unless we are advised otherwise. As a subscriber you will receive letters and emails from Upstream unless you have unsubscribed. The content of the communication will be service messages, offers, news alerts or other useful information regarding the subscription and your benefits. Upstream will treat your contact details confidential and will not be shared.


Login details

Login details are sent to the subscriber only, unless prior permission has been given for login details and passwords to be forwarded to a different trusted individual. Your ID should be your email address and password may be chosen. If you forget your access details, please contact us via My Upstream; www.upstreamonline.com/myup select “Forgot my password” on the login page or contact your nearest Upstream office.


Number of licenses

Please note that the number of licenses (accesses) to upstreamonline.com is limited to the number of subscriptions on your account. Your username and password are personal and may not be shared by anyone else. Upstream offers a variety of corporate and multiple-access options. If you have a subscription that is shared with colleagues or you and your colleagues could benefit from wider access to our valuable print and or online services, please contact: subscribe@upstreamonline.com For any changes to your subscription, please contact us through My Upstream; www.upstreamonline.com/myup, email subscribe@upstreamonline.com or contact your nearest sales office.


Invoice copies

If you require an invoice copy, please email: accounts@upstreamonline.com.


Standard subscriptions

The standard subscription includes the weekly newspaper and full digital access including all articles from Upstream since the launch 1996.



Upstream is distributed via first class mail, and subject to deadlines stated by the individual mail service companies globally. If you are not receiving the paper as normal, please contact customer service either via email or by calling your closest sales office. Delivery inquiries are highly prioritized. Upstream is printed in the UK, and delivery date is dependent on your location.



All subscriptions are renewed automatically unless notice is given. We reserve the right to terminate the subscription at any time, due to lack of payment. Lack of payment is not considered a valid resignation, however, and a balance invoice will be issued if the subscription is terminated due to lack of payment. The subscriber will receive reminders from Upstream until payment has been received. Cancellation is always required in writing either by letter or email. If a cancellation is received after the renewal date, a balance invoice will be payable for the period used. Upstream reserves the right to make changes in the product as well as terms and conditions. Major changes will be notified in the paper and/or via email.
