PRODUCT PURCHASE CONDITIONS

 

Once a product is purchased, the User or Client related to the purchase accepts and declares that the following terms have been acknowledged and are true:

 
  • The Client / User has carefully considered the suitability of the chosen product and has make an appropriate choice.

  • The purchase is not cancellable once it is done.

  • SFAD does not ensure that a particular product will be available on the future, so the Client / User has to download it on his/her own machine and save it immediately after the purchase.

  • Once an product is purchased, the User / Client acquires a non-exclusive license to use the product under the terms set out in the license file and in these Terms and Conditions (non-exclusive means that others may also have the same item covered by the same license).

  • The author (SFAD) retains the ownership of the product.

  • SFAD and/or the Company have the right to enforce against any User / Client the terms of the acquired license.

  • Any User / Client has no right to redistribute or resell any product bought or provided by SFAD.

 

SFAD and the Company, as product and Service providers and author of the product, hereby declare that:

  • Owns the rights to use the intellectual property rights in that item.

  • The product is not false, inaccurate, misleading, fraudulent, unlawful or defamatory.

  • The product does not violate any applicable law or regulation, including those governing export control, consumer protection, criminal law, pornography, antidiscrimination, trade practices or fair trading.

  • The file does not contain malicious code, viruses, rootkits, trojans, web shells or other software created to limit or destroy of other computer software or hardware, or to gain unlawful access to any other computer software or hardware.

 

Despite the Company’s reasonable efforts, the product may occasionally be listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information. If this happens, SFAD’s Staff may cancel or reverse a transaction, even after it is completed and a payment has been processed. If this happens, the Company will promptly arrange for any payment to be credited or refunded, and the Client must not use any product gained by this transaction.

 

REFUNDS

 

Given the nature of downloadable digital products and the availability of a fully browsable preview, SFAD does not offer a refund or credit on a purchased download. There is no obligation to provide a refund or credit in situations like the following:

 
  • the Client has changed his mind about a product

  • the Client bought a product by mistake - as the payment process is very clear

  • the Client has no sufficient expertise to use the item

  • the Client can no longer access or download the item because it has been removed from SFAD by any member of the Staff or the Company.

 

DISPUTES WITH PAYMENT AGENTS

 

If a Client / User lodges a dispute with a payment agent, this will result in a freezing of the SFAD account related to this Client / User until the dispute raised with the payment agent has been closed.

 

This makes it very complex to resolve any related issues, and means that we cannot make payments or issue refunds out of a Client / User SFAD account. So, SFAD and the Company hereby encourage the Users and Clients to contact the Company directly first to assess if the Staff can help to resolve any concern.

 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND COPYRIGHT

 

The Company owns all the SFAD content which is visible and browsable by the web. This includes the design, compilation, and look and feel of the SFAD site and products, copyright, trademarks, designs and other intellectual property on SFAD.

The images used are not guarenteed all freesource, the Company only takes the effort to take freesource images. The Company does not ensure that those sources are always the correct ones, despite the Company’s effort to mention the right ones.

LINKING TO THIRD PARTIES

 

SFAD and the Company would be delighted if someone decides to link SFAD from other websites, but anyone interested in doing so, will have to get a written permission by enquiring the following email address: info@siteforadollar.com . The Company does not tolerate any abusive, racist, pornographic, spamming or false informative websites. Approved websites and authors must link to a full version of a page as seen as normally browsing SFAD, and look as intended. Linking to single components of existing web pages (images, scripts, styles) is not allowed. “Framing” any component of SFAD, surrounding it with someone else’s content, materials or branding is not allowed. The Company reserve the right to insist that any link to SFAD will be discontinued, and revoke the ability to link to SFAD. The Company does not accept any form of spam linking.

 

SFAD’s sites may contain links to other non-SFAD websites. The Company, SFAD and the Staff have no control or responsibility over any content of those websites, and do not endorse or sponsor those websites, even if they are affiliated to SFAD.

 

SFAD welcomes and uses the contribution of the Staff, SFAD’s Developers and broader community, who offer applications that work and enhance the SFAD’s Products. A Client / User will have to form his/her own view regarding those applications and their developers, as we’re not able to warrant or endorse those applications and disclaim liability for them.

 

INDEMNITY

 

Membership (the process of becoming a Client) is not an automatic right on SFAD and it’s accomplished by registering to SFAD - which implies an acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Membership on SFAD is a benefit for all the SFAD’s Users, Clients, Developers, Staff and the Company itself, and SFAD hopes to keep its members for long time. In the meantime, SFAD reserves the right, based on the Company’s reasonable discretion, to determine whether or not your use of SFAD complies with these Terms and Conditions.

 

SFAD’s Staff or the Company, can suspend or terminate any account on SFAD at any time for any reason, while always acting reasonably. If the Company decides to terminate any SFAD account, the owner must not apply for a new one as he/she will be considered as not welcome in the community anymore.

  • The Company’s use of SFAD

  • SFAD content breaching the intellectual property belonging to others

The Company strives to keep SFAD and its components up and reachable 24h per day, every day including holidays. Despite this, a User / Client can be unable to reach SFAD, SFAD’s services and SFAD’s products. This may happen because of any reason, which may be related to a decision undertaken by the Company or SFAD’s Staff, as it could be caused by different unexpected events. The Company will not be liable to any Client / User for any loss due to any service unavailability.

 

If a Client / User is accepting these Terms and Conditions in behalf of a third party, he/she hereby promises that he/she has full legal authority to bind that third party.

 

In some places there may be consumer or fair trading laws that apply and that may give you rights that the Company cannot exclude, restrict or modify (‘non-excludable law’). The Company does not exclude or modify any non-excludable law, except as provided in a non-excludable law, the Company is bound only by the express promises made in these terms and the Company is not bound by implied terms. Except as provided in a non-excludable law, the Company’s and each author’s liability for breach of any implied warranty or condition which cannot be excluded is limited, at the Company’s or the author’s option, to either replacement or paying the cost of replacement.

 

Nothing in these terms is to be construed as constituting a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between any Client / User and the Company, or between any User / Client and any other member. Neither any User / Client nor the Company can bind each other in any way.

 

The Company is, however, an agent of the authors only for the limited purposes of the authors’ providing warranties to buyers in these Terms and Conditions and the disclaimer of authors’ liability to buyers.

 

Although the Company can change any of these Terms and Conditions at any time, we will take reasonable steps to let you know when we do so.

 

Words like ‘include’ and ‘including’ are not words of limitation and where anything is within the Company’s discretion we mean our sole discretion.

 

We control and operate SFAD from our offices in UK. The laws of UK govern these Terms and Conditions, and all the Users / Clients submit to the jurisdiction of UK laws.
