Purchased content may be purchased for PERSONAL USE only, consistent with the terms defined in this Agreement. For DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY and INDEMNITY conditions see above under 'GERNERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS'.

RESTRICTIONS OF USE OF PURCHASED CD CONTENT
All of Ancientnile's purchased content, including physical compact discs, are covered by International Copyright Law. Therefore you must not modify, copy, publish, digitally stored, transmit, transfer or sell, reproduce, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display, reverse-engineer, or in any way exploit any of Ancientnile's PURCHASED CONTENT, in whole or in part. No content / music must not be offered for download / listening to on any other website or computer, nor offered through any file sharing device, Peer-to-Peer transfer, membership area, or online auction area.

(See 3.2a below). All purchased material from ancientnile is COPYRIGHTED by Ancientnile with ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

REPLACEMENT AND REFUNDS OF 'PHYSICAL' COMPACT DISCS:
All Compact Disc purchases are posted using Royal Mail 'Signed For' (UK) or 'Internationally Signed for' (Rest of World) postage to ensure against loss. If the purchaser does not receive the CD after a reasonable time then the purchaser must notify us and we will pursue the loss through the Royal Mail postal insurance service in order to recover the cost of the lost item(s). In the meantime purchasers will be offered online digial downloads of the same music as a subsitute for the lost CD(s) until costs have been recovered and a replacement CD(s) can be sent out.

We DO NOT offer refunds on our CDs, except in the case of postal losses - which are recorded and monitored. This is due to the nature of Compact discs which can be copied. However we do offer a viable and working alternative in the case of damage. (see below)

In the case of damage caused by the postal service this must be pursued by the purchaser using the online claim facility at the Royal Mail website. All of our Compact Discs are played on various computers and HI-FI systems and thoroughly checked for any defects before dispatch, (e.g. scratches, warping, blemishes, chipping etc). However if you do encounter any problem playing the music CD you must notify us within 24 hours of receipt. Purchasers will then be offered online digial downloads of the same music as replacement for the CD. Please note: You must accept this viable alternative as a condition of sale. If you do not wish to be offered digital downloads in the case of damage, do not purchase our music.

We refuse refunds of any purchases due to,'change of mind', or 'not what I expected' or 'I don't like them', or 'I don't understand them', or 'incompatibility' or customer mistakes and ordering errors. This is because each song has a sample supplied online via our site which clearly demonstrates the content of each Compact Disc, thereby giving the purchaser a clear understanding of what he / she is purchasing. Music samples, both 'poor quality' (30 seconds) and 'purchase quality' (10 seconds) are available to listen to online via our website before deciding whether you wish to purchase. In the case of our music and ebooks there are 'downloadable demo files' also available which you can save to your computer.

If, for any reason, Ancientnile does (at our discretion) agree to replace any defective CD, the original CD must be returned to us within 28 days from the date of purchase. You must email to obtain a Return Authorization Number (RAN). Returns cannot be accepted without this number. Purchasers / customers are responsible for return shipping charges. The purchaser must also agree to return the original CD, at their own cost, via 'Signed For' (UK) or 'Internationally Signed for' (Rest of World) trackable postage to ensure against loss. Ancientnile can not be held responsible for any losses due to postal errors therefore the purchaser must ensure that the CD is insured against such losses using the postage method mentioned above, in exactly the same way it was sent to the purchaser from Ancientnile. If, upon evaluation (since your hardware may be defective), the returned good(s) are found not to be defective, or not in its original condition, or damaged, or has missing parts since being originally dispatched by Ancientnile, then no replacement CD will be offered and we will recommend that your hardware be serviced. If however we verify that it is indeed defective, we will send a replacement CD to you.
