Software Terms of Use & Copyright

Most of our publications and software (e.g. ebooks) are registered to an individual, or a site, as the buyer, with name and locality stamped within the file, for use only by the individual for his/her own students or by a site on their one physical site under our Terms of Use. This is not only a condition of our copyright but it is also a condition you accept once you buy and/or use our resources. Please ensure you keep a back-up copy of your software.

The buyer agrees to abide by the following:

Except as permitted by the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth), you may not reproduce or communicate any of the contents of these publications, without the written permission of the copyright owner.

You may be entitled to reproduce or communicate from these publications for educational purposes under Part VB of the Copyright Act, or for government purposes under Part VII Division 2 of the Copyright Act. For more information, contact us or visit www.copyright.com.au and www.copyright.org.au. Any and all reproductions made from these publications during copyright sampling must be documented and acknowledged to author Neil J Waddington or the copyright owner stated on the page.

No part of these publications may be disassembled or used in any other way without permission. Any reproductions made, if permissible, must preserve any embedded user registration identification.

Please note that our copyright provisions may alter without notice over time and such alterations will take precedence and be enforceable over any earlier provisions.

We rely heavily on users (e.g. schools) attributing any copying of our works to the author when they are surveyed as the sales of our resources alone do not cover the cost of their development. For example, the Waddington Diagnostic Standard and Advanced Reading and Spelling Tests 1 & 2 Third Edition took over 3 years to create. The sales of that ebook, either registered to a school or an individual, does not cover its development cost alone. That is why we rely heavily on users recording and attributing any copying if sampled by copyright agencies. By doing this, you help the vast majority of schools and individuals to buy our resources at a reasonably low cost and then being able to copy what they need under Statutory Licence, when they need it, without time limiting or annual subscription restrictions - as long as that copying is attributed when sampled. Like we say, we rely on YOU!
