Sharing of subscriber-only materials with non-subscribers for their use as learning materials is strictly prohibited.

If you access your account through a third-party computer, you must ensure you logout after use.

You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password.

5. Privacy Policy

We will treat all your personal information as confidential and will only use it in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

When you subscribe on this website, we will ask you to input personal details in order for us to identify you, such as your name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card or other payment information. We confirm that this information will be held by us in accordance with the registration we have with the Information Commissioner's office.

6. Protecting Your Security

To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we (or our payment processors) will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases.

We and our payment processors take the risk of Internet fraud very seriously. With the volume of fraudulent credit card transactions increasing, we and our payment processors make every effort to ensure all orders are thoroughly checked using the information already supplied. There is a possibility we or our payment processors may contact you to make additional security checks and we ask for your co-operation to enable us to complete them. We and our payment processors will not tolerate fraudulent transactions and such transactions will be reported to the relevant authorities.

By accepting these Terms you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency, which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and our Privacy Policy.
