These terms and conditions apply whenever you access the network, on whatever device. In these terms and conditions, when we say SAMsource.com we mean this network, regardless of how you access it.

By using the network, you are deemed to have accepted these conditions.

Some areas of samsource.com require registration. By completing the initial registration form and by entering your email address and password, you will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions. Also, by subscribing to any of our services, you are deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions. If you register with samsource.com you should read our privacy policy.

If you have registered with us and subsequently change your details, you should immediately notify us of any changes by emailing the user support team - Contact the source

Any changes we make to the terms and conditions will be reflected on this page.

1. Registration
When you register, you are registering as a personal user of samsource.com. Access to registration areas is via your email address and password.

We allow you access to the registration areas of the site on the basis that:

(i) Your email address and password are personal to you and may not be used by anyone else to access samsource.com

(ii) You will not do anything which would assist anyone who is not a registered user to gain access to any registration area of samsource.com

(iii) You do not maliciously create additional registration accounts for the purpose of abusing the functionality of the site, or other users; nor do you seek to pass yourself off as another user

(iv) You comply with these terms and conditions.

If, for any reason, we believe that you have not complied with these requirements, we may, at our discretion, cancel your access to the registration areas of samsource.com immediately and without giving you any advance notice.

2. Termination of registration
If we wish to bring the agreement to an end, we will do so by emailing you at the address you have registered stating that the agreement has terminated. The agreement will terminate and your email address and password will become invalid on samsource.com immediately.

3. Use of material appearing on samsource.com
For the purposes of this agreement, "material" means material including, without limitation, text, video, graphics and sound material, published on the samsource.com network, whether copyright of SAMsource Limited or a third party.

You may download and print extracts from the material and make copies of these for your own personal and non-commercial use only. You are not allowed to download or print the material, or extracts from it, in a systematic or regular manner or otherwise so as to create a database in electronic or paper form comprising all or part of the material appearing on samsource.com

You must not reproduce any part of samsource.com or the material or transmit it to or store it in any other website or disseminate any part of the material in any other form, unless we have indicated that you may do so.

4. Fees
The right of access granted to the subscription areas of SAMsource under these Terms is effective only upon payment of the membership fees, which are strictly non-refundable other than as expressly provided herein. SAMsource offers three (3) subscription plans to gain full access to the SAMsource Library: Single user, Up to 5 users and an Unlimited site licence. Each of these membership levels is an annual subscription plan. The annual subscription automatically renews, and SAMsource will charge the subscription fees to your credit card, every one-year period unless you cancel the subscription as set forth herein.

The subscription fees will be charged on the same date of each corresponding year. For example, a subscription commencing on May 1, 2009 will be renewed, and the annual subscription fees charged on May 1, 2010.

You may cancel your subscription up to seven (7) calendar days after the renewal date and receive a full refund of the new subscription fees. If you do not cancel your subscription within seven (7) calendar days after the renewal date, you shall be obligated to pay all subscription fees for the new subscription period.

Subsequent subscriptions will be charged at the same rate as your original membership fee.  For example, if you took advantage of our launch offer, then that is the fee that you will always pay, unless you upgrade from a single or 5 user subscription to a higher level, when the full fee for your new chosen subscription level at that time will be charged.
