  • you must not email the electronic download to anyone
  • you must not post the electronic download online anywhere, including publicly or in a private password-protected area (see our e-delivery via course area or app delivery option should you wish to do this); you can only use it to print in-house the number of copies you need for your course

  • you must use the electronic download only for the course you have named on your order; if you wish to use it again on a subsequent course, you must reorder the number of copies you need for the new course.
