handbooks in perfect, unopened, resaleable condition (in the original

We will access a credit less shipping,
insurance and handling/restocking charges once the returns are accepted
in perfect condition, inspected and processed (it takes about 6 -
12 weeks). Entire sets of the 12 / 24 / 33 / 55 Handbook volumes or
any Journal sets/backsets or any series is printed-on-demand (POD)
then no returns are permitted and no claims are processed. Cancellations
or order changes occuring during 'shipping-in-process', transit or
while 'shipped in transit via bonded warehouses' would generate and
require additional re-shipping, re-insurance and appropriate warehouse
demurrage charges that occured after changes to invoice activation
terms and/or notification of shipment and/or changes to the original
invoice terms and/or changes to trading conditions and/or changes
to associated trading terms stated in facsimiles, letters, voicemails
or email correspondence.

transmitted page of any journal or handbook. Unfortunately, no opened
or used handbooks or computer CD dataware can be returned (copyright
