DIGITAL VERSIONS - SECURITY AND DEVELOPMENT

Purchasing digital versions on the A&B portal assigns these items to your A&B portal customer/user account. For this reason, registration is required at the time of ordering. Digital versions of magazines assigned in this way go to the personal repository of A&B publications available in the "Magazines" section of the User's account. Purchased items are graphically highlighted in color. Monochrome versions are publications to which the User has not yet acquired access rights.

NOTE 1: Access to the file repository and User account is not part of the purchase agreement for any of the products in the A&B portal store and is an added value.

Digital magazines are automatically watermarked during download with a non-intrusive watermark with the owner's name and email address as legal proof of a non-exclusive, per-unit license to use a particular A&B digital magazine. Files are secured by the User's personal password known only to him and provided at the stage of downloading and encoding the publication.

NOTE 2: The Publisher does not directly store Users' passwords for the digital numbers licensed in a way that makes them readable. If you lose or forget your password, you must download the publication file again by defining a new password and confirming it in the file download window. The new password will be encrypted and assigned to the User's account, being the default password for subsequent downloads of digital publications.

The User has the right to download or browse online a digital publication from A&B servers up to five [5] times per month. The pool is renewed periodically every month.

NOTE 3: In random cases or failure of the User's hardware and/or software, it is possible to increase the download limit of a given number once.
For this purpose, please contact by email at: prenumerata@architekturaibiznes.com.pl

The user has the right to save a given copy of the digital publication on his/her storage media or terminal devices and dispose of it under applicable copyright law.

Sharing electronic publications with third parties is prohibited under penalty of civil liability.

When it is proven that a digital publication is intentionally made available and distributed (based on the User's watermark), legal steps may be taken to protect the copyright of the Publisher and third parties, including authors: texts, photos, statements or images.

Failure to comply with the above regulations may result in temporary suspension of access to the account on which the file repository is made available to the User, or its complete removal.
