2.3 How we may contact you. If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
2.4 "Writing" includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
3. Our contract with you
3.1 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. These terms will form the basis of that contract.
3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock and we do not know when we will be able to restock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product, because we cannot deliver the physical product to the country or state in which you reside, or for some other reason beyond our control.
3.3 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. You should tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order. You must retain this information as you will be required to supply it when discussing your order.
3.4 We only sell to customers in countries to which we can deliver.
Please note our prices do not include taxes and duties applicable to your country. We can only sell physical products to customers in countries or states to which we can deliver. If we can’t deliver physical products to where you live, we will not accept your order. We are not responsible if you are unable to download our digital content, whether this is because of legal restrictions in the country or state in which you live, or otherwise. If we are aware that you will be unable for legal reasons to download any of our digital content, we will not accept your order for such content.
4. Our products
4.1 What we do and what we offer. We supply books in the Octunnumi series and offer other products and content. These terms will apply equally to such further products and content as they do to the products currently available from us.
4.2 Goods, digital content and products. In these terms, where we refer to “goods” we are referring to physical products, namely printed books (and any other physical products that we may offer for sale, now and in the future), and where we refer to “digital content” we are referring to the app and to any other digital content that we may make available now and in the future, whether for free download and/or purchase – this might include an e-book, an audiobook or any other content that can be downloaded or streamed or otherwise obtained by electronic means). The expression “products”, as used in these terms, includes both goods and digital content.
4.3 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website and social media accounts are for illustrative purposes only. Although we make every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colours of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.
4.4 Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the physical product is an important part the product itself, and it may vary from that shown in images on our website or social media accounts, as we endeavour to improve and refresh the packaging style from time to time. Further, physical products shipped to locations outside the UK may be packaged in an outer wrapping, but this is purely for protection purposes only and does not form part of the physical product itself. Similarly, the black cardboard box in which books are dispatched is only for protection during postage and does not form part of the product.
4.5 Product content may vary. Each printing (edition) of the printed book is and will be slightly different from any previous editions in some subtle way or ways. There may also be differences from time to time in the digital content. See if you can spot the differences!
4.6 *Release dates and dispatch dates are guides and are subject to change.
5. Your rights to make changes to your order
If you wish to make a change to an order you have placed, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and we will ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change (for example, because the product has already been despatched to you) or if the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 8 - Your rights to end the contract).
6. Our rights to make changes
6.1 Minor changes to the products. We may change the products:
(a) to provide some content that is subtly different to previously available content;
(b) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

threat. These changes will not affect your use or enjoyment of the product.
6.2 Changes to these terms.
We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without notification, and they take effect once placed on the website. It is your responsibility to check for updates to these terms, and by continuing to use our website and placing orders, you are agreeing to any update to these terms.

This is because our production standards are very high and our products unique, and we will not compromise on quality in order to despatch products more quickly than would otherwise be possible. Multiple items may be shipped together - this will affect despatch times stated.

11. Price and payment
11.1 Where to find the price for the product.
The price of the product (which includes VAT, where applicable) will be the price indicated on the order pages of our website when you placed your order. Please note: all prices are displayed on our website in GBP (pounds sterling) and if you are ordering from outside the UK, the price will be converted into your local currency. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However
please see clause 11.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
11.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT where applicable. If the rate of Value Added Tax (VAT) changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay on any affected products, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
11.3 What happens if we have got the price wrong.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
11.4 When you must pay and how you must pay.
We accept payment with Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and Amex (including prepaid Visa and Mastercard). When you must pay depends on what product you are buying:
(a) For goods, you must pay for the products when placing your order.
(b) For paid digital content, you must pay for the products before you download them.
11.5 What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know.
12. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
12.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us.
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
12.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.
This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the products, including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information we provided to you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
12.3 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.
12.4 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose, we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
13. Digital content use, rights and requirements
Digital content that we supply to you is subject to the following specific terms (the Digital Content Terms):
13.1 You can use the digital content for your personal, non-commercial use only.
13.2 You can store digital content on your personal computer, e-book reader, tablet or smartphone, or on any other personal device owned by you and which is capable of storing the digital content.
13.3 If any of our digital content has the capability to be exported, then this is solely for your personal use and does not constitute a grant or waiver (or other limitation or implication) of any rights of the copyright owners in any text, audio or video content, sound recording, underlying musical composition, or artwork embodied in any digital content.
13.4 You do not have any commercial or promotional use rights in the digital content, nor do you have any right to copy any digital content for the purposes of distributing such copies to another device or online.
13.5 Our digital content may be subject to digital rights management, which allows you to use the digital content but may restrict the ability to copy, paste and print from the digital content.
13.6 You agree that you will not attempt to, or encourage or assist any other person to, circumvent or modify any security technology or software that is part of our digital content or used to administer these Digital Content Terms.
13.7 Digital content may not be copied, adapted, translated, made available, distributed, varied, modified, disassembled, decompiled, reverse engineered or combined with any other software, except to the extent that:
(a) this is permitted in these Digital Content Terms; or
(b) applicable law expressly provides such a right which cannot legally be excluded by contract.
13.8 Except to the extent expressly provided by us in writing, digital content is provided 'as is' – that means that it is supplied without any warranties, terms or conditions as to quality, fitness for purpose, performance or correspondence with description, and we do not offer any warranties or guarantees in relation to digital content installation, configuration or error/defect correction.
13.9 Use of the digital content requires one or more compatible devices, Internet access (fees may apply), and certain software (fees may apply), and may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time. Because use of the digital content involves hardware, software, and Internet access, your ability to use the digital content may be affected by the availability and performance of these factors. High speed Internet access is strongly recommended. You acknowledge and agree that such system requirements, which may be changed from time to time, are your responsibility.
13.10 We reserve the right to modify these Digital Content Terms at any time.
14. How we may use your personal information
15. Other important terms
15.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract. If you are unhappy with the transfer, you may contact us to end the contract within 21 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for products not provided.
15.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
15.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
15.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
15.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
15.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts. If you live elsewhere, the question of where you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products will depend on what the problem is and where you live. Please be assured that we will always try to resolve any issue that you have without the need for either you or us to initiate legal proceedings.
15.7 Alternative dispute resolution. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a process where an independent body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact us again to ask whether we can resolve the issue by means of an ADR process.
