General Terms and Conditions for Group Subscriptions

Specific Conditions and Additional Points of Detail

  1. The group rates shown in the accompanying text on this website are intended to remain at these levels for the long term – they will not be raised except insofar as it is necessary to adjust for price inflation.
  2. Late entries to a group can be accommodated, but groups will have a single renewal date.
  3. Group subscriptions are renewed annually. New members joining a group will pay at the rate for the group, but any members whose subscription lapses (anyone who dropped out from renewing) will be liable for the PEP entry fee if they chose to reuptake their subscription in the future. This provision is designed to prevent individuals subscribing some years and not others.
  4. The content on PEP-Web will be the latest PEP-Web Archive Version which will be updated as current content is received from the publisher. There is a three to five year embargo on most current content due to contractual obligations. For the embargoed years, only abstracts and article summaries may be read on PEP-Web, though the text is fully searchable. New journals and books may be added in January each year.
  5. Subscriptions are for personal use only. The subscription may not be used for teaching or other activities for a 3rd party (for example a university or public hospital) and access will not be possible from such computers in public institutions with an IP address logged in PEP’s systems.
  6. The terms and conditions and the way access is organized through PEP require Institutes to designate a Group administrator or someone to handle any initial difficulties members may have.
  7. There will be further enhancements to PEP-Web from time to time, including methods to allow students who are enrolled to access reading lists to be linked to PEP, special glossaries, and citation and reference functions.
  8. PEP will not issue refunds to any ORGANIZATION members who have purchased the CD/DVD version or any other access to the PEP-Web Archive at any time. It is important to make this clear at the outset of any consideration for Group subscriptions.
  9. PEP will make waivers so that an individual who is a member of two organizations pays for PEP-Web only in one. Claims must be supported.

General Conditions to be agreed by each user in a group

  1. Access is for all those on the roster of XYZ Society (XYZ) only (authorized users). No authorized user may assist anyone other than another authorized user to access PEP-Web, (including family members) and is expressly prohibited from doing so in any way whatsoever. Usage is monitored. Any breach of this condition will result in immediate removal of access rights without compensation and in the imposition of a liability to indemnify PEP for any lost subscription fees.
  2. Access is for personal use or for use in connection with teaching in the Institute or group organizing the subscription. The user may not print out or use PEP-Web in connection with any work for a university, hospital, or other institution. PEP needs your help here as in these days of budget cuts some universities and other organizations may try to get round purchasing access rights themselves.
  3. PEP-Web subscriptions usually contain an initial (year 1) and a subsequent (year 2) element. PEP intends that subsequent subscriber rates will be held constant in real terms. A society or authorized user whose subscription lapses will be liable to pay the initial rate, a late fee, or re-entry fee.
  4. Each authorized user will be assigned a username and password on the Psychoanalystdatabase.com (PaDS). You will subsequently be able to log into PaDS to amend any details.
  5. Authorized Users are not entitled to direct support from PEP Customer Support (CS). Support will be provided via a nominated member of XYZ who will be able to refer to PEP CS if necessary. PEP-Web and PaDS require a user to have Internet access, to use the current version an internet browser and to enable firewalls in such a way authentication codes work. In a few cases this may require adjustments to a user’s computer set up. There are no limits on use but users should log out when finished as not to do so may affect the performance of the system.
  6. Availability: PEP has contracted its suppliers for PEP-Web to be available from a link 24 hours a day 7 days a week in all reasonable circumstances.
