Terms and Conditions
JourneyCheck Alerts via SMS and email
Welcome to the London Midland JourneyCheck Alerts service.
This service offers the ability to register for the automatic provision of train service disruption information via email. The information supplied comes directly from staff in the London Midland Service Delivery Centre in the London Midland Control.
This service is being provided to you through London Midland and its parent company Go-Ahead Group and was developed by Nexus Alpha Limited. This service is subject to the following terms and conditions. You are legally bound by them even if you choose not to read them:
Warranties, Indemnities and Limitation of Liability
Although London Midland will take considerable effort to ensure that the service we provide to you is of good quality, there may be difficulties that can affect the service. Neither London Midland or Nexus Alpha Limited provide any warranty or accept any liability whatsoever for any loss or damage from: defects that may exist to the service and the website, omissions or errors, reliance on the service resulting from delays, service interruptions, inaccurate alerts, the customer's inability or failure to use the service, or suspension or withdrawal of any part of the service. London Midland accepts no liability or responsibility for technical inaccuracies, technical difficulties, loss of data, service settings, mis-delivery or storage failure of data, human error or other interruptions to the service. Liability is hereby disclaimed to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The very nature of train service disruption information means that it can take time for network and service problems to be reported back to the Service Delivery Centre, who then enter the information into the JourneyCheck Alerts system. Also, the nature of service disruption means that on occasion it can change quite rapidly. Disruption information is by nature an imprecise process, as the future is predicted from the present position:
Incidents can take longer to resolve than initially expected
delays can become more severe
cancelled services may be reinstated
The JourneyCheck Alerts service provides an "as is" snapshot of the reported state of the network in the context of the journey you have defined and at the time you have registered to be alerted.
London Midland and Nexus Alpha Limited reserve the right to terminate your subscription to this service at their discretion. The service is provided for the personal use of passengers and potential passengers of the transport system to enquire about journeys, and for no other purpose.
The customer warrants that they are the legitimate owner of the registered email address.
The customer shall indemnify London Midland and Nexus Alpha Limited (including its affiliates, staff, officers and agents) against any claim by a third party alleging loss and/or damage as a result of the customer's misuse, or inability to use the service.
Use of Service
There is a maximum number of journeys that can be registered.
An email address can only be registered once.
Travel alerts are received by email only
This Service is created solely for access from the UK mainland.
In order to receive the service, the customer must go through the process of registration and answer all questions marked by an asterisk.
Once the customer has registered for the service, they will continue to receive alerts until they unsubscribe, or the service is terminated according to these terms and conditions.
The JourneyCheck Alert service uses a defined set of rules to determine what message to send when there are a number of different incidents likely to affect your journey:
Priority is given to cancellations over train delays.
Cancellations to later trains will take priority for alert over earlier delayed services.
Where more general problems are reported on a particular route, the message will state that cancellations or delays "may" occur as appropriate.
Cost of Service
This service is being provided by London Midland with no intended cost to the end user. The subscriber should be aware that whilst the "desktop" delivery of emails is generally free, the delivery of emails to mobile devices can incur charges from your mobile service operator.

How do I enter the characters in the picture?
The image contains a combinations of letters selected only from the 26 letters of the English alphabet, and can be mixed case. There are no numbers.
The letters displayed in the image may or may not read as a real word. You must simply reproduce the letters in the text box below the image as you read them.
Why do you need me to complete this?
The purpose of insisting on this part of the registration process is to prevent computers registering multiple users automatically for malicious reasons. Sadly this is a common problem for websites these days and this is one of the few methods available to circumvent these systems.
The letters are purposefully (and randomly) irregular to make it difficult for them to be read by a computer. This may mean that on occasions the image is ambiguous even to the human eye. If you struggle to read the letters in the image, simply click on the refresh image button to get an alternative option.
