Delivery of Subscription

STAT Communications Ltd. imposes no restrictions on which country or countries it will deliver its information products. However, in order to receive this product customers need a valid email address and a computer with a valid and working connection to the internet.

STAT Communications Ltd.'s information products are deemed to have been delivered to each and every customer when each individual article, chart, and other information product is made available via the STAT website. All customers are given user names and passwords, which they can use to access all material on the website as it becomes available.

By default, customers only receive email messages needed to maintain their account. Articles are only sent if the customer chooses to reeceive them. Most statistics and some articles are only available at the website.

While customers have the ability to request delivery of articles by email as they are published, STAT Communications Ltd. cannot guarantee each email message will arrive in a timely manner. Problems beyond the control of STAT Communications may prevent articles transmitted by email from arriving, whether in part or in full and/or in an ungarbled state. Therefore, even though an article may not be delivered by email, it is considered to have been delivered when it becomes available for viewing and/or download via the internet at the website.
