Terms and Conditions - Newsletter subscriptions

Sep 29, 2016 by katemilligan

Corporate subscription

Corporate website subscriptions or other information or data services provided by PolicyTracker entitle the client organisation to online access for 12 months. It is non-refundable and must be paid in advance. 

PT Publishing does not permit any of the following:

  • any other person sharing your username and password
  • access through a single user name and password being made available to multiple users on a network
  • printing of more than one copy or photocopying of reports or newsletters delivered in electronic format
  • forwarding or copying a complete article or reports provided in electronic (pdf, html or xml) format or storing these electronic articles or reports on a computer accessible by a network


However, PolicyTracker subscribers may use the content supplied in a manner usually described as "fair use" or "fair dealing". Subscribers may copy extracts of up to 300 words or a single illustration from reports, articles or other material for their own internal or external purposes without seeking permission provided appropriate attribution is given. Longer extracts or multiple illustrations require permission from the publisher. 

The right to use the Licensed Information (Content) in the printed newsletter or on the PolicyTracker site is personal to the named subscriber(s) and should not be shared with any other person or entity.

For information on whole site licenses please contact PT Publishing Subscriptions Department

Users are responsible for all use of the Site made using the username and password issued to you. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your username and password or any other personal information, you are bound to notify PT Publishing Limited immediately by emailing:

On registration or purchase of a subscription, you must provide PT Publishing with accurate, complete information. It is your responsibility to inform PT Publishing of changes to that information (including in particular your email address) by emailing or writing to the registered office.

PolicyTracker is a professional journal aimed at business customers. You are buying a 12 month subscription to the newsletter and it is not our policy to make refunds midway through this period. However, refunds may occasionally be offered at the discretion of the management.

Subscription for academic institutions

PT Publishing also offers a subscription package for academic institutions under which five members of staff may access the electronic version of the newsletter or receive the printed edition under the conditions described above i.e. through the use of a username restricted to one individual.

However, as part of the package for academic institutions PT Publishing also gives open access to the newsletter website for a restricted number of computers, specified by IP address, which are usually located in the university library. These are intended to provide access to the site for all users of the library so for these computers the restrictions on individual use (i.e. the first three bullet points in the Corporate Subscription section above) do not apply. For these computers the "named subscriber" referred to above is the academic institution rather than any individual.

All the other provisions in this document apply both to corporate and academic subscribers.
