PURCHASES AND USE
Publications may be purchased via our Website in hardcopy traditional format or in digital format (“Digital Versions”). When purchasing a Digital Version, you are actually purchasing a license, and you do not acquire ownership rights in the Digital Version, or any intellectual property rights therein.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you are hereby granted a limited non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, revocable license to access and use the Digital Versions you purchase for your own personal use. You acknowledge that you shall acquire no other rights in any Digital Versions. You agree that, as between you and Company, all the intellectual property rights in the Digital Versions are owned or controlled by Company or its licensors. ALL RIGHTS NOT EXPRESSLY GRANTED IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE RESERVED BY COMPANY. You may not use, copy, reproduce, create derivative works from, perform, publicly display, adapt, upload, modify, edit, publish, post, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale, license, distribute or exploit, in any way whatsoever, the Digital Versions without the express written permission of Company or its licensors. Any modification of the Digital Versions or any portion thereof, or unauthorized use of the Digital Versions, constitutes an infringement of Company’s, or its third party licensors’, copyrights and other proprietary rights. You are not permitted to attempt to circumvent any digital rights management features contained in the Digital Versions. A breach by you of the rights granted and restrictions applicable for your use of the Digital Versions will result in the automatic termination of the license granted to you in the Digital Versions.
Company reserves the right to interrupt all or any aspect of online access to the Website from time to time on a regularly scheduled basis or otherwise with or without prior notice, for any reason (or no reason), including, without limitation, in order to perform maintenance. You understand and agree that delays and disruptions of other network transmissions are completely beyond our control. You acknowledge that your access to the Website and the Digital Versions may also be interrupted for reasons beyond the control of Company and Company cannot guarantee that you will be able to access the Website, Digital Versions, or your user account whenever you may wish to do so.
Company has the right at any time for any reason or no reason to change and/or eliminate any aspect of the Website as Company shall determine at its discretion. Solely for purposes of clarity and without limiting or waiving any term or condition set forth elsewhere in this Agreement, we are entitled, with immediate effect, to block your access to the Website where you use the Website in a manner that violates applicable law or in a manner that Company determines is a breach of this Agreement. Your right to access and use the Website is provided at our discretion, and your account may be suspended or terminated at any time and for any reason. Only individuals may apply for accounts and purchases, and organizations or companies are not eligible to register for the Website without the express written permission of Company, which it may withhold in its discretion.
The Digital Versions are downloadable onto certain mobile devices via one of our mobile apps, and the Digital Versions you purchase can also be accessed and viewed online via your account. As technology will likely change, Company reserves the right, in its discretion in the future, to discontinue current access methods and to provide you with access to your purchased digital copies via any other available and alternative formats. Such other formats may require the purchase by you of devices or technology capable of reading such copies, or, in Company’s sole discretion, Company may alternatively provide you with a hardcopy, as a full replacement for your Digital Versions. In such case, Company shall have no liability or responsibility to you other than providing you with such alternative access or copies, in the aforementioned manner, to your purchases, and you will have no right to claim any refund based upon being provided such alternative access or copies.
Some subscription plans may provide you with access to Digital Versions for a designated subscription term, in which case, access to such Digital Versions will terminate at the end of the applicable subscription term.
Company bills you through an online billing account for purchases of products and/or services. You agree to pay Company all charges at the prices then in effect for the products you or other persons using your billing account may purchase, and you authorize Company to charge your chosen payment provider for any such purchases. You agree to make payment using that selected payment method. If you have ordered a product or service that is subject to recurring charges then you consent to our charging your payment method on a recurring basis, without requiring your prior approval from you for each recurring charge until such time as you cancel the applicable product or service. Company reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. Company may change prices at any time.

You agree to promptly provide Company with legally sufficient tax exemption certificates for each taxing jurisdiction for which you claim exemption.
Your account will be considered delinquent if you or your payment method fails to pay the amount billed to it and that amount remains unpaid at the beginning of the next accounting cycle. Your account may be suspended, archived or purged from the Website if your account is delinquent for more than 30 days. Company may impose a charge to restore archived data from delinquent accounts. Company may choose to bill through an invoice.
