If someone used your account to sign-in on a separate machine/browser your authentication session will be terminated (forced logout), and you will be presented with a message informing you of the reason. Should this happen to you we recommend immediately changing your password. Should an account show an unusual count of forced logouts we reserve the write to lock the account.
Excessive usage: For the smooth operation of the system and integrity of the performance of the website, the system is designed to restrict the consecutive resets allowed on any resource (100). If you hit the maximum limit of resource resets the reset functionality will be removed for that resource.
Multi user accounts: While we do not support multi user accounts we do provide licences for organisations with a need to give access to multiple employees. For further details please refer to our multi user packages.
Access to the WACS Website
We try to ensure that website availability is uninterrupted and that transmissions will be error-free. However, we cannot guarantee that your access will not be suspended or restricted from time to time, including to allow for repairs, maintenance, or the introduction of new facilities or services. We of course try to limit the frequency and duration of any suspension or restriction.
Accounts and Passwords
If you have registered or subscribed to use any service within the WACS Website, any user identification code or password is personal and non-transferable. Your login details must be kept confidential and can only be used by you (unless agreed in writing with Advosci Ltd) for the specified term of your subscription or registration period (which may be terminated at the discretion of Advosci Ltd). We reserve the right to take action should this requirement be breached.
Our Products and Services
WACS is an online study website. A description of what is included in each WACS subscribed service is contained on our website, including the period of each subscription. The Blog and any other services which are currently available without a subscription are also indicated on the website.
Placing an Order and our Acceptance
When you request an online purchase, the language that we offer to you for the conclusion of this process will be English only.
For online payments, we may at that time allow you to have temporary access online to the WACS service that you wish to subscribe to, but this is a gesture of goodwill and does not represent acceptance of your offer. Access will need to be made via the username and password supplied. Irrespective of an online payment, our contract will not become binding until five working days have elapsed after a successful payment is made online and only if we do not contact you. This is in case any pricing errors have occurred and if so we will contact you. For Cheque, Postal Order or International Money Orders our contract will become binding upon receipt by Advosci Ltd of clear funds and notice of acceptance. Subject to the foregoing, delivery will be deemed to have taken place once the login details have been sent by us to you.
Please note that if you wish to cancel any subscription that you have purchased after our contract comes into effect, cancellation shall be at our discretion and if accepted may be subject to a cancellation charge. You hereby agree that no cancellation is allowed after these services have started to be supplied. This does not otherwise affect your statutory rights.
WACS services are supplied subject to availability and remaining in current circulation. In the event that we are unable to supply any WACS services for the agreed term, we will inform you as soon as possible and provide you with a pro rata refund in the event that you have paid for a period for which we cannot comply. We will not however be liable to the full extent permitted by law, for any direct or indirect loss caused as a result of not being able to supply to you within the subscription for all or any of the periods subscribed to.
Prices and Payments
The price that you pay for the WACS services you order should be the standard pricing as indicated on the website. These prices are inclusive of all taxes and delivery unless otherwise indicated. They are valid for purchases during the calendar year which they relate to. All subscribers are required to make payment in pounds sterling. Should you be paying from an account outside of the United Kingdom, the exchange rate will be calculated by your bank.
We try to ensure that all of our prices on our website are accurate, however errors may occur. If we discover any errors in the prices of the services that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of recommencing your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If you do not respond to our contact, we will treat the order as cancelled. If you order and we have already processed your payment, you will receive a full refund.
Payments may be made through the methods specified on our Order Summary section of our website. We take all reasonable precautions to keep the details of your order and payment secure. Unless we are negligent however, we cannot be liable for losses causes as a result of unauthorised access to the information provided by you.

Browser Support Statement
WACS is built using the Bootstrap framework. Bootstrap works best in the latest desktop and mobile browsers, meaning older browsers will be fully functional, but might display the components in a different style.
Specifically, we support the latest versions of the following browsers and platforms. On Windows, we support:
- Internet Explorer 8
- Internet Explorer 9
- Internet Explorer 10
- Internet Explorer 11
Although they are not officially supported, Bootstrap should look and behave well enough in Chromium and Chrome for Linux, Firefox for Linux, and Internet Explorer 7.

As you browse the website, we collect information about your use of the site including but not limited to traffic data and location data.

We will not be able to identify who you are from the information we store, but we will be able to identify where you are located.
What else do we collect when you use our website?
Each time you use the internet, an IP address is assigned to your computer via the internet service provider. This number may either be the same or different each time. Each time your computer requests information from our website, we log your IP address on our server and may log operating systems and browser types for system administration and to report aggregate information. We may use this in order to gather information about the website traffic and usage.
Whether you are a registered user or not, our web server collects certain information such as: (a) IP address; (b) host names; (c) domain name; (d) time and date information as requested; (e) the browser version and platform when it is requested, (f) a record of which pages have been requested.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence and use it to contact you in response and/or to update our records.
We may use all information to adhere to any legal requirements to disclose to third parties, enforce our legal rights, and protect against unauthorised access, use, activity and/or copying, either personally or via third party contractors and advisors. This may involve using your name and subscription details on a database with other publishers' data for detection purposes.
What else do we use personal information for?
Other than for fulfilling any obligations to you (where these exist), on some occasions we use the information provided to produce anonymised aggregate statistics in relation to pages being accessed and the demographics of our users. We may also use it to monitor usage patterns on the website in order to improve navigation and design features to help you get information more easily. In order to help us develop the website and our services, we may provide such aggregate information to third parties. The statistics, however, will not include any information that can be used to identify any individual. We may contact you to notify you about changes to our service.
How long do we keep the information we collect?
We keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil our obligations to you, protect our legal interests and undertake analysis of our website to assist you and future users.

- as required to enforce our legal rights (including property, safety, our customers or others);
- fraud protection and credit risk reduction;
- where our company or its assets (to which your data relates) are to be acquired by a new company, location data may be shared.
How personal information is stored and protected
We use Internet standard encryption technology ("SSL" or "Secure Socket Layer" technology) to encode personal data that you send to us when placing an order through the Website. To check that you are in a secure area of the Website before sending personal data to us, please look at the bottom right of your website browser and check that it displays an image of a closed padlock or an unbroken key
