Terms & Conditions


In some respects, I am quite old-fashioned, and I would prefer a good old, binding handshake to a lot of rules.

Saying that the terms & conditions are quite simple for present purposes.

Purchase & Delivery

You can buy the e-books directly from this page, using the purchase button and then choosing a payment method (this website uses Mollie as payment service provider.)

You will receive a link for your copy of the e-book after paying per email. And in addition you will be redirected to this website, where you will also find a download link.

All in all, you can download the e-book three times. However, each copy is for your use alone and may not be resold or passed on.

Alternatively: If you prefer a payment method not provided on this website, you can contact Easy Town Books via the contact form and state your preferences.

Payment

via PAYPAL: payment is due directly.

And that could be us done, except for four points:

Cancellation & Refund / Right to return: You have the right to return the e-book within fourteen days after receiving the e-book. There are slightly different approaches in different countries. But since I am based in Europe, I’ll go by the 14 day cooling off period. Generally, I think that the right to cancel and to return goods is a good rule. In the case of digital goods, I find it a little unsatisfactory.

The fact that I could use a rule to exempt you from a refund, doesn’t really help. The rule states that online digital content is exempt from refunds, if you have already started downloading the content, and you agreed that you would lose your right of withdrawal by starting to read. How would I tell whether or not you’ve started reading the book?

So, reluctantly, I decided to allow for the 14 day cooling off period. This means, if you return the e-book within 14 days of receiving the e-book, I’ll refund the price you paid for the e-book and do so within a month. This only applies if you purchase the e-book from this website. And please, do us both a favour and only ask for a refund if you haven’t read the book, or no more than a few pages and you realised that this is not for you. I have a great dislike for people who think that screwing others is clever.

As for copyright: Don’t be a dick and feel all clever about handing out free copies of the e-books. The Easy Town Books are protected by copyright law and are not available for free distribution. Nor is it permitted to use any part or idea of the books without prior, written permission by the author. Any copyright infringement will be prosecuted.

About the price: For the German and the Austrian market, the prices fixed until the December 2021 in compliance with German law.

Disagreements: Should there be any trouble, German laws apply, since I am presently based in Berlin.
