We have no control over the nature, content and availability of those sites. The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them.

Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, ISTA takes no responsibility for and will not be liable for the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

Supply of products and purchase of membership: These terms and conditions govern the supply of products to you, whether these are goods or membership services.

These terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your purchase. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation.

If we need to contact you about your order, we will do so by telephone or writing to you at the email address provided to us in your order.

Our acceptance of your order for products available to purchase on the website will take place when we send an email confirmation of your order at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us for the purchase of the products. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will refund you the amount you paid minus any administration fees.

We may suspend the supply of products which are made available to you through the website to:

deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;

update the product to reflect laws and regulatory requirements.

If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within 30 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of products (including membership benefits) until you have paid us the outstanding amounts.

The price of the product you are purchasing through the website will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed the order.

For membership, you must make advance payment for your membership before we start providing the membership services to you. Payment for membership can be made through the website, by making a BACs payment in accordance with the instructions on the ‘Apply Now’ section of the website.

If you are renewing your membership, you must pay the renewal fee quoted to you with the renewal information we send to you. Your access to the membership services will cease on the expiry of your membership and your profile on the Global Directory area of the website will be withdrawn if you do not make payment of the renewal fee quoted on the renewal form prior to the expiry of your current membership.

You must pay all amounts due to us under these terms without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

We may end the contract for a membership at any time by writing to you if you do not make any payment to use when it is due and you still do not make payment within 30 days of us reminding you that payment is due.

If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of you breaking the contract formed when you place an order, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

Events outside of our control: We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.
