Terms and Conditions of Purchase
CUT (Cut a Long Story Limited)
Please read these terms and conditions of purchase carefully.
You will be asked to agree to them when you place an order for an e-book download on our website.
In these terms and conditions of purchase, “we” means “Cut a Long Story Limited (and “us” and “our” will be construed accordingly); “you” means our customer or potential customer for downloads (and “your” will be construed accordingly); and “e-book/s” means the e-book or e-books that you purchase from our website.
(3) Order Process
The advertising of downloads on our website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for downloads constitutes a contractual offer. The terms and conditions of purchase will not come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.
In order to enter into the download agreement, you will need to take the following steps:
(i) you must add any download/s you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout; (ii) at checkout, you must confirm your order and your consent to the terms and conditions of purchase; (iii) you will be transferred to the PayPal website, and PayPal will handle your payment; (iv) we will send you an email confirmation of your order, with your downloaded e-books attached.
We will not file a copy of the terms and conditions of purchase specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of the terms and conditions of purchase on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you print and retain a copy of the terms and conditions of purchase for your records.
The only language in which we provide the terms and conditions of purchase is English.
Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors by checking the contents of your basket. You may correct those input errors before placing your order.
The download/s will take the form of e-book/s as selected from our website.
(5) Price and Payment
Prices for downloads are quoted on our website. The website contains a large number of e-books available to download and it is possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a download's correct price will be stated when you pay for the download.
Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. We may withhold the download/s if the price is not received from you on time, in full, in cleared funds.
The prices on the website include all value added taxes (where applicable).
Payment for all downloads must be made by debit card, credit card, Paypal account, or other method indicated in our checkout process.
Prices for downloads are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect download agreements that have come into force.
(6) Your Warranties
You warrant to us that:
- you are legally capable of entering into a binding contract
- you have full authority, power and capacity to agree to the download agreement
- the information provided in your order is accurate and complete
- you have access to the necessary computer systems, software and network connections to receive and enjoy the benefit of the e-book/s download/s that you purchase
(7) Licence to Use Downloads
Subject to your payment of the applicable price and compliance with the terms of the terms and conditions of purchase, we grant to you a worldwide non-exclusive non-transferable licence to make any Permitted Use of any e-book; providing that you must not in any circumstances make any Prohibited Use of any e-book.

(15) General Terms
The terms and conditions of purchase may only be varied by an instrument in writing signed by both you and us. We may revise the terms and conditions of purchase published on our website from time-to-time, but such revisions will not affect the terms of any contracts which we have entered into with you.
If any provision of the terms and conditions of purchase is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect, and such invalid or unenforceable provisions or portion thereof will be deemed omitted.
No waiver of any provision of the terms and conditions of purchase, whether by conduct or otherwise, in any one or more instances, will be deemed to be, or be construed as, a further or continuing waiver of that provision or any other provision of the terms and conditions of purchase.
You may not transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract, sub-license or otherwise deal in any of your rights or obligations arising under the terms and conditions of purchase. Any attempt by you to do so will be null and void. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract, sub-license or otherwise deal in any or all of our rights or obligations arising under the terms and conditions of purchase, at any time – providing where you are a consumer that such action does not serve to reduce the guarantees benefiting you under the terms and conditions of purchase.
The terms and conditions of purchase are made for the benefit of the parties to them and they are not intended to benefit, or be enforceable by, any other person. The right of the parties to terminate, rescind, or agree any amendment, variation, waiver or settlement of the terms and conditions of purchase is not subject to the consent of any person who is not a party to the terms and conditions of purchase.
Subject to the first paragraph of Section 12: the terms and conditions of purchase contain the entire agreement and understanding of the parties in relation to the purchase of downloads from our website, and supersedes all previous agreements and understandings between the parties in relation to the purchase of downloads from our website; and each party acknowledges that no representations not expressly contained in the terms and conditions of purchase have been made by or on behalf of the other party in relation to the purchase of downloads from our website.
The terms and conditions of purchase will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any dispute arising under or in relation to the terms and conditions of purchase.
