Terms & Conditions

Acknowledgment of E-Book Conditions

By agreeing to these terms and conditions, customers acknowledge the following e-book stipulations.

Our E-Books for Windows Products 
  • Our E-Books for Windows products are .exe application files contained within a zip file. The application is a bespoke PDF reader with the e-book embedded within it.
  • Such .exe files can only run on Microsoft Windows operating systems. They cannot run on Apple, Android, Linux, or other operating systems. 
  • The zipped .exe file must be downloaded by the purchaser through a link provided on the confirmation of purchase page and/or through the subsequent confirmation of purchase email. The purchaser must then (as per instructions given at purchase) unzip the file and move the .exe file to a location of their choice on their computer or in the cloud. The purchaser must then open and unlock the file using a registration key also provided in the same communications (on the confirmation of purchase page and/or through the subsequent email). The purchaser is wholly and fully responsible for download and installation. 
  • Note that the purchaser can use the download link 3 times to download the file.
  • Many antivirus programmes and/or firewalls will block or even remove .exe files. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to arrange for these antivirus programmes and/or firewalls to accept the ebook file. It may be necessary to do this after an initial warning by the antivirus programme and/or firewalls.
  • See the Refunds & Returns policy section below for terms involving requested refunds for our E-Books for Windows products.
  • The customer acknowledges that the words “ebook” and “e-book”, as well as any possible capitalisation variations thereof or reasonable other variables thereof, are equivalent.    
Other E-Books for Android, Windows, or Linux

 The Silk Route Press website also offers links to other sellers of our books, most notably Amazon Kindle for ebooks that can be read on non-Microsoft Windows devices. On redirection to such sites, the purchaser agrees to indemnify Silk Route Press of any responsibility for further processes or purchases of said external products, instead, the purchaser shall be bound by the Terms & Conditions of the external reseller of our products.

To be eligible for a return, a physical item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. Physical books with obvious signs of use may be eligible for partial refund depending on condition.
