REPP has the
following terms and conditions of sale for all costumers:
1. All orders for books, CD Roms and other publications
('Goods') placed with Reed Educational & Professional Publishing Limited
('REPP') will be accepted by REPP subject to these terms and conditions
until further notice. Where a prior written agreement exists between REPP
and the customer in respect of any order the terms of that agreement will
prevail. Goods which contain computer software are also sold subject to
the terms of software licenses contained within the Goods. These terms
and conditions do not apply to online products. They shall be interpreted
in accordance with English law.
2. Orders are accepted subject to availability of
stock and may be delivered in 2 or more instalments. Time of delivery
is not of the essence and REPP shall not be liable for any loss of trade
or profit resulting from delay for any reason.
3. Goods are supplied on a firm sale basis unless
otherwise agreed in writing by REPP. Returns will be accepted only in
accordance with REPP's returns policy current from time to time.

5. REPP shall deliver Goods to the business address
of the customer or its agent or to a carrier nominated by the customer.
Carriage to an address outside the UK or Eire shall be at the cost and
risk of the customer. REPP shall not be liable for loss or damage of Goods
in transit unless notified in writing:
(i) of claims for damages or partial delivery within 7 days of delivery
to an address in the UK or Eire or 28 days of delivery to any other address,
(ii) of claims for complete loss of consignment within 21 days of the
date of the invoice if addressed within the UK or Eire or 21 days of the
date of the statement of account for the period in which the invoice was
raised where the delivery address is outside the UK and Eire.
6. Except where the customer has a credit account,
orders must be accompanied by payment in full.
For Credit Account Customers Only
7. REPP may set and vary credit limits for any account
and may refuse to supply any order which causes the account to exceed
the current credit limit. REPP may also withhold supplies if the customer
is in breach of these terms and conditions or fails to make any payment
by the due date.
8. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the customer
shall pay the total amount stated on the invoice by the date for payment
stated on the invoice. Payment shall be in pounds sterling drawn on a
bank based in the UK. REPP may charge interest on overdue payments at
the rate of 1% above National Westminster Bank's base lending rate from
time to time and shall be entitled to recover from the customer all expenses
(including legal costs) incurred in enforcing payment.
9. In spite of delivery having been made, property
shall not pass from REPP until the customer has paid the invoiced amount
in full and no other sums whatever are due from the customer to REPP.
REPP shall be entitled to recover the amount invoiced for the Goods notwithstanding
that property has not passed. Until property in Goods passes to the customer
in accordance with this clause the customer shall hold the Goods and each
of them on a fiduciary basis as bailee for REPP. The customer shall store
the Goods (at no cost to REPP) separately from all other goods in its
possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as
REPP's property. Until such time as property in the Goods passes from
REPP the customer shall upon request deliver up such of the Goods as have
not been resold in the ordinary course of the customer's business. If
the customer fails to do so REPP may enter upon any premises owned occupied
or controlled by the customer where the Goods are situated and repossess
the Goods. On the making of such request the rights of REPP to recover
the amount invoiced for the Goods shall cease.
