5. Terms of Supply
Subscriptions run for a full year and no credit will be given for cancellations during the year.
6.1 Orders are accepted by the Supplier subject to availability of stock and may be delivered in two or more instalments. Time of delivery is not of the essence. The Supplier has no liability for any loss of trade or profit occurring to the customer as a result of delay in delivery or delivery of incorrect or faulty goods.
6.2 Delivery will be made to the business address of the customer or its agent or to a carrier designated by the customer. Delivery to an address in the UK or Eire is subject to such delivery charges, if applicable, as appear in the Supplier’s price list or catalogue.

10. Supplier’s Liability
The Supplier’s liability in all circumstances is limited to the cost of replacing the Goods ordered. It is not intended that any contract between the Supplier and the Customer for the supply of Goods should be enforceable by any third party.
11. Free copies
The publisher reserves the right to refuse an application for a free copy.
12.1 Any waiver by the Supplier of any of these terms and conditions shall be limited to the particular instance and shall not operate or be deemed to operate as a future waiver of that or any other term.
