Special conditions e-books


The terms and conditions below regulate the legal relationship between Academic & Scientific Publishers (ASP) (NV) (hereinafter referred to as "ASP") and the customer (being the natural or legal person who has entered into an agreement with ASP and undertakes to ASP on that account, hereinafter referred to as the "Customer"), with regard to the sale of e-books (hereinafter referred to as "e-book" or in the plural "e-books").

By placing an order for an e-book through an online connection, the Customer (1) accepts these terms and conditions without reservation, (2) declares that he has read and understood these terms and conditions in full, (3) undertakes to comply with them and (4) acknowledges their validity as a document signed by the Customer. If the Customer does not accept these terms and conditions, the e-book may not be used and the Customer must immediately sever the online connection. If the e-book has already been downloaded via the download link received by the Customer, in the event of non-acceptance, the Customer must immediately stop using it and destroy all copies of the e-book in his possession or under his control. If one provision of these terms of use is inapplicable, or conflicts with a mandatory legal provision, such inapplicability shall not affect the validity or applicability of the other provisions.

The present terms and conditions are special terms and conditions (hereinafter "Special Terms and Conditions") that relate solely to the purchase and use of e-books and are to be supplemented by ASP's General Terms and Conditions, which remain integrally applicable to the legal relationship between the Customer and ASP and to which the Customer declares to agree with their content. In case of contradictions between ASP's General Terms and Conditions and these Special Terms and Conditions, the latter will prevail. ASP's General Terms and Conditions can be consulted on ASP's website ( or can be obtained from ASP upon simple request.

Offer, conclusion of agreement, delivery, download

ASP's offers and price lists do not imply any obligation/commitment on the part of ASP and may be withdrawn at any time. Obvious mistakes or obvious errors in the offer do not bind ASP.

An Agreement will be established the moment an order confirmation has been sent by e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the Customer. ASP and the Customer explicitly agree that a valid agreement will be concluded electronically. The absence of a written, ordinary signature does not affect the binding force of the offer and its acceptance. ASP also reasonably assumes that the person placing the order and thus accepting the offer is also entitled and competent to bind the Customer.

The delivery of the e-book takes place when the order confirmation with download link for downloading the e-book is delivered to the Customer via e-mail, this is within 24 hours after the order was placed. By sending the aforementioned e-mail, ASP has fulfilled its delivery obligation. If the Customer has not received an e-mail message from ASP within 24 hours of ordering the e-book, or if the download link does not work, the Customer should immediately contact ASP's customer service department via or by phone on 02/289 26 56.

As soon as the aforementioned e-mail with download link is delivered to the Customer, the Customer can download the e-book 5 times within a period of three months, starting from the day of receipt of the aforementioned e-mail. After reaching 5 downloads or the expiry of this three-month period, the possibility of downloading is no longer guaranteed.

Conditions for use

In order to use and read e-books on his mobile device and/or his computer or laptop, the Customer must have adapted software provided by third parties. ASP reserves the right to modify unilaterally and at any time the usage methodology and delivery process of e-books. If the Customer uses third-party software and/or applications for consulting the e-book purchased from ASP, ASP is not liable for the correct functioning of such software and/or applications, their availability and consequences for downloading and using the e-book.

Use of e-books

The e-books are intended for personal use by the Customer only, on a maximum of five different personal devices of the Customer. The Customer may not copy, sell, distribute, transmit, translate, distribute, display, reproduce, publish, rent, lease, sublicense, license or otherwise transfer the e-book in whole or in part
