These terms take precedence over any that may exist in your purchase order when paying for a subscription, or any template agreements or contracts in use by your organisation for the purpose of purchasing goods and services, and this fact is referenced on your Shortlist invoice for your records.

Payment and pricing

All invoices must be paid by the due date specified by Shortlist. Should debt collection or legal action be required to collect payment any costs incurred will be passed on to the subscriber's organisation.

Shortlist reserves the right to restrict, suspend or terminate service at any time.

Single-user subscriptions are for use by only one person and are not to be shared, reproduced or redistributed.

Subscriptions can be transferred, on request, to another person working for the subscribed organisation.

Fair usage of your Shortlist subscription

Do not forward or share Shortlist login details or email alerts.

Forwarding a Shortlist email alert jeopardises the security of your subscription details, including contact information, passwords, invoicing and subscription history and permissions, while also breaching our copyright.

Our fair usage policy makes generous allowances for occasional sharing within your organisation (see fair usage policy below), however sharing our content with external organisations (including clients, service providers, and subsidiary organisations) is strictly prohibited.

Fair usage policy

The Shortlist fair usage policy is designed to ensure subscribers are aware of how they can share the information we publish.

We understand that there are occasions when you want to share a particular article with others.

We think it's important for you to be able to do this, but please follow the rules below. Doing so will ensure you don't breach copyright law, or hinder our ability to provide the best, most affordable service we can for our subscribers.

Under our fair usage policy:

  • Subscribers can print paper copies of any article published by Shortlist for distribution and/or display within the subscribing organisation only (this does not include subsidiaries or clients).
    Printed articles must not be altered in any way and should clearly display the Shortlist logo. Click the printer icon at the top or bottom of any article to print a page that is appropriate for display.
    Examples of distribution permitted under the policy include sharing printed articles among management, displaying them in a reception area, or posting them on a noticeboard.

  • Subscribers can obtain permission to reproduce Shortlist articles in internal publications or with external parties. Certain conditions apply – please contact us with requests.

Subscribers are not permitted to:

  • Forward any email update from Shortlist – this is a breach of our copyright. (Forwarding our emails also compromises the security of your account and can block your access to the site.)

  • Make or distribute web copies of articles published by Shortlist.

  • Share subscription login details.
