Terms of use

In subscribing to the Australian manual of style (AMOS), by Biotext Pty Ltd and Macquarie University (the Publishers), it is assumed that you have read, understood and accepted the conditions of purchase as listed below. 

Individual subscriptions

The Publishers grant access to individual users to create their own unique profile, search, view, and add to the Bookmarks feature of AMOS during the specified term of the subscription. The customer’s card is debited by Stripe at the time of processing the purchase. After reviewing order details, the customer may opt to proceed to payment. After entering their credit card details (Visa or Mastercard only), the customer receives a message from Stripe as to the success or failure of their transaction, as conveyed to the stylemanual.com.au website. 

The Publishers do not have access to card details unless a customer calls the Publishers and asks a member of staff to complete an order on their behalf. In this case, the customer’s card details will be entered into the system by the Publishers, but the information will not be stored.

Data are encrypted for the customer’s safety. The Publishers cannot be held responsible for a security failure originating with Stripe or other suppliers. The customer may also request an invoice and pay through their own accounts payable department. Note that subscriptions will not start until payment is received.

The Publishers will email the user with confirmation of the receipt and acceptance of the subscription. The Publishers, at their sole discretion, may rescind acceptance, in whole or in part, of any subscription containing incorrect information, whether this results from technical malfunction or any other cause, or in cases where the order conflicts with these terms of use. Customers are not entitled to a refund of their subscription. Users may change login and password details through their login to the publication.

Individual users are responsible for safeguarding the username and password assigned to the account. They are also responsible for any violation of the terms of use for AMOS by anyone who accesses the publication by using the user’s username and password.

Group subscriptions

The Publishers grant access to groups with individual subscription accounts to AMOS during the specified term of the subscription. By registering for a group subscription to AMOS, the self-appointed group manager will act on behalf of the group and each of its members with regard to their access to AMOS. All group members agree to access AMOS subject to the terms of use for AMOS. Access may be denied at any time without liability in case of violation by any individual member of the group, either to that member or to the group as a whole.

Organisation subscriptions

The Publishers grant access to organisations with organisation subscription accounts to AMOS during the specified term of the subscription. An organisation subscription allows the specified number of members to access AMOS simultaneously during the term of the subscription.

By registering for an organisation subscription to AMOS, the self-appointed organisation manager will act on behalf of the organisation and each of its members with regard to their access to AMOS. The organisation will provide an IP address or range of addresses, and a subscription user is granted access to the address or within the range of addresses. 

The Bookmarks feature will not be operational because it is only suitable for individual user profiles. All organisational members agree to access AMOS subject to the terms of use for AMOS. Access may be denied at any time without liability in case of violation by any individual member of the organisation, either to that member or to the organisation as a whole.

The organisation is responsible for making all reasonable efforts to prevent access by anyone other than subscriber users, and is responsible for terminating any unauthorised access of which it has actual notice or knowledge. Failure by the organisation to take prompt and reasonable steps to terminate unauthorised use may result in suspension or termination of access.

Academic institution subscription

The Publishers grant access to academic institution subscription users to AMOS during the specified term of the subscription. Subscription users are members of an academic institution, and are limited to research and teaching staff, employees, students, and onsite users of the institution’s library and computer network facilities with lawful access to an IP address registered with the institution for this purpose.

The academic institution will provide an IP address or range of addresses, and a subscription user is granted access to the address or within the range of addresses. Off-campus users would use the institution’s proxy to connect from the supplied IP range. The Bookmarks feature will not be operational because it is only suitable for individual user profiles.

The academic institution is responsible for making all reasonable efforts to prevent access by anyone other than subscription users, and is responsible for terminating any unauthorised access of which it has actual notice or knowledge. Failure by the academic institution to take prompt and reasonable steps to terminate unauthorised use may result in suspension or termination of access.

Supply

The Publishers reserve the right at their sole discretion not to supply certain customers, or customers in certain countries, or to apply any limitations of quantity or value deemed appropriate.
