PACKT PUBLISHING LTD MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THIS SITE OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, OR PRODUCTS INCLUDED ON THIS SITE. YOU EXPLICITLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THIS SITE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, PACKT PUBLISHING LTD DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Packt Publishing Limited reserves the right to make changes to this site, policies, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
Packt Publishing Limited may immediately suspend or terminate your access to the Site without notice if any breach of these Terms and Conditions of use by you is brought to our attention.
If you breach these Terms and Conditions and we take no action, we will not have waived any of our rights and may still use any rights and remedies that were open to us when you broke them.
Furthermore, your registration maybe terminated and your profile and any content or information that you have posted on the Site maybe deleted at any time.

The sale and purchase of products via this application website is by a contract between you and us, formed when you have placed an order. Once your order has been placed, the purchased eBook shall appear in your ‘Owned’ or ‘My Library section’. Alternatively, for a hardcopy book purchase, once we have accepted your order, we will send you an order confirmation.
Please note that as soon as we confirm your eBook order, it will enter our electronic system and we will be unable to prevent it being dispatched to your account. In addition, no refunds or exchanges will be given on eBooks unless the supplied file is faulty or a fault occurs during the book made available to you, i.e. during download. If either case should sadly arise, then you should contact Customer Care (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be able to resolve this issue for you.
Furthermore, in making a purchase, you agree and recognise that:
• eBooks will be supplied for in-app reading or downloadable in a number of formats. It is therefore the responsibility of the purchaser to obtain a copy of the appropriate software necessary for viewing the eBook.
• Packt Publishing Ltd reserves the right to make changes to the books’ format availability at any time and for any reason so long as a copy of the eBook remains available elsewhere.
• Any purchase of an eBook file entitles the purchaser to a copy of that file, which may be shared between any device(s) owned by and registered to that purchaser.
• All products listed and sold via this application are copyright ownership of Packt Publishing Ltd, and making illegal copies of your ebook files will be considered a breach of copyright, against which legal action will be taken.
• The premises for delivery will be the address (e-mail or otherwise) supplied by the purchaser at the time of purchase, and that these details are ultimately the responsibility of the purchaser. For eBook purchases, these will also be held in your ‘My Library’ area.
• Packt Publishing’s eBook files are safe for download and do not carry any malware that could harm and/or damage the purchaser's eReader/computer/device or smartphone. However, all eBook files are bought at the purchaser's risk, and purchasers should take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of their eReader, computer, device or smartphone.
• That the purchaser is solely responsible for the storage of any physical and downloaded content, and that Packt Publishing Limited cannot be held responsible for the loss of eBook files or any of our products, after their initial receipt, i.e. purchases are held at the purchaser's own risk and that accidentally deleted/damaged files cannot be replaced by Packt Publishing Ltd. The sole exception to this rule being purchases which are held on the Packt web app where a technical fault/unforeseen error has occurred with the app or the eBook. In this instance, Packt Publishing shall make any previously purchased eBook(s) available to the purchaser as soon as is practical to do so and once any fault or error has been rectified.
Specific web app T&Cs
In using this app, you agree that:
• Packt Publishing Ltd, or approved contractors, may need to make essential maintenance to the application website without advanced warning, or prior notice. In such a case your ability to access your account maybe temporarily unavailable or limited.
• Any attempt to misuse the site will fall in line with wider Packt Publishing terms and conditions, and may result in the suspension or cancellation of your account.
• That any purchase(s) made from your account, whether by you or not, shall be treated as a genuine purchase(s) and will therefore follow the normal procedures of purchases. Instances of error shall be at the discretion of the customer care department. For further information, please visit the ‘Refund and return‘ area.
