The publishing kit includes a Customer guide, parent order forms, a Customer order form, pages for writing and drawing and in some circumstances, a sample book. These publishing kits and the professionally bound books are the products we offer through our Services (the “Products”).

      • You are employed as a teacher, carer or social worker at the Education Centre designated in your order form;
      • You have informed the principal / head of your Education Centre of your intention to place the order for the Services and they have authorised the order on behalf of your Education Centre;
      • You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts on behalf of the Education Centre; and
      • You have received parental consent for all children that will be contributing to the book and availing of the Services.
    • Our vetting process for orders. Before accepting your order for a publishing kit, we will conduct a vetting process whereby we will review the information provided by you to confirm that you and your Education Centre have the capacity to order and avail of the Products. Where further information is required, we will contact you.
    • How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order for the publishing kit will take place when you receive the publishing kit, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
    • If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing via email. This might be because you do not meet the vetting requirements, the Product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the description of the Product or because we are unable to meet a submission date you have specified.
    • Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

    • Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the Products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the Products. Your Product may vary slightly from those images.

  1. customer PRICE AND PAYMENT
    • Price and payment terms. The publishing kit is provided free of charge. The price of the professionally bound books will be the price indicated on the parent order form issued with the publishing kit. You will be responsible for issuing the parent order forms to the parents, and for gathering the completed forms and payments. Once all completed forms and payments are gathered, you will submit them to us by credit card or cheque (as further detailed on the Customer order form). Payment must be received before the manuscript book is submitted for publishing to avail of the pricing outlined on the parent order forms.
    • Card payments. Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in payments taking up to sixty (60) days to be deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card.
    • Rejected Orders. Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, your bank or card issuer will “ring-fence” the full amount of your order. If your order is subsequently rejected or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the order to us and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. However, this may take up to 10 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that we will not be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
    • Refunds. We will provide any refund that is deemed appropriate for the Services directly to you, and you will be responsible for arranging the distribution of this refund amongst the parent(s) who paid for the Services.

      • each publishing kit to the Education Centre;

If our supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract.
