Terms and Conditions ("Terms")
Last updated: January 2019
Please read these Terms and Conditions ("Terms", "Terms and Conditions") carefully before using the http://www.asys-publishing.co.uk website (the "Service") operated by aSys Publishing ("us", "we", or "our").
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.
The manuscript must be submitted in its final form. That is; it should have been checked and rechecked by the author and be ready for formatting and publication. Unless specifically requested, aSys Publishing does not offer proofreading or editing services. However, if after the document has been formatted by aSys Publishing, ready for publication and at this stage the author wishes to make substantial changes then further charges may apply.
Each service comes with a set number of post-formatting changes. Once this number has been exceeded, additional fees may apply.
The author must have all legal permissions and rights to publish all of the material in the manuscript. This includes, but is not limited to; textual content, diagrams, illustrations and photographs.
It is not normally acceptable to simply copy and paste material that is found on the Internet even if it is in the public domain. Please contact us for clarification.
The manuscript must not be of a nature that would make it illegal to be published in the United Kingdom, United States of America or any other country.
By accessing or using the service you agree that you, the author, are fully responsible for the entire content of the book and agree that aSys Publishing is not liable for any damages that could be caused by content contained within the publication.
Following the author's approval of the proof (Soft or Printed) any remaining errors or omissions will be the responsibility of the author
If you wish to use a pseudonym for your publication, then please state this clearly before publication
The copyright of your book remains entirely with you, the author
Liability and Errors
Following the author's approval of the proof (Soft or Printed) any remaining errors or omissions will be the responsibility of the author.
aSys Publishing requires a 20% deposit before work can begin. Full payment is then required after you have seen a physical or soft proof of your book and the funds must have cleared in our account before publication.
Our preferred methods of payment are by Credit / Debit Card (taken over the phone) or Bank Transfer. We accept cheques, made payable to aSys IT, however work cannot start until the cheque has cleared.
aSys Publishing is not a book printer. Because we keep our publishing prices as low as absolutely possible it is not possible to give "free" author copies with any of our services.
We have business arrangements with printers and can arrange on behalf of the author to have books printed at cost effective unit prices. The prices usually become cost effective for the author when 25 or more copies of the book are ordered. For numbers less than 25 it is usually cheaper for the author to order them direct from the print on demand provider after their book has been published.
The Enhanced Distribution service does not guarantee that bookshops will stock any particular book. This is because bookshops are an independent business of which aSys Publishing has no control over.
aSys Publishing does not subscribe to Nielsen's Enhanced Metadata. This effectively means that some online retailers will not list a synopsis, however, most will. If this is a concern then contact us for alternatives to our standard ISBN assignment.
aSys Publishing is unable to guarantee that any book will sell well. Whether a book sells well or not is dependent upon a number of factors that are outside of our control. For example;
The overall quality of the writing within the book
The overall appeal of the book to readers in general
The extent of the people interested in the subject matter
The extent of the book's marketing
There are many other factors which can effect the sales of books. However, aSys Publishing will provide a professional publication service which will give your book every chance of success.
Links To Other Web Sites
Our Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by aSys Publishing.
aSys Publishing has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that aSys Publishing shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.
We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third-party web sites or services that you visit.
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of United Kingdom, without regard to its conflict of law provisions and excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Service.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us.
