Refunds Policy

Please note, this Site is an online bookstore and there is NO cooling off period for the purchase of eBooks or Digital Content. Therefore eBooks are not able to be returned or refunded.

  • Did not realise there are restrictions on eBook usage
  • Do not have the right system or software specifications required to access and read your eBook properly

Ebooks’r’us reserves the right to change or discontinue the offer of any Digital Content or other products and services at any time.

Purchase options

We may offer the option to choose the format you would like to purchase an eBook in. Further information regarding these formats can be found in our FAQs.

The format you choose depends entirely on personal choice and the computer or device or application you intend to use for reading your eBook.

By purchasing any Digital Content from us, you acknowledge that you understand and agree it is your responsibility to ensure your computer, tablet or smart device meets the minimum system and software specifications required for the eBook to read properly and for the necessary software to work. If you are not sure, we strongly recommend you review the technical specifications needed for Adobe Digital Editions (which is the free eReader software we recommend for reading your eBooks).

Restrictions on the downloading and use of Content

Our Site does not sell products for direct purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you're under 18, you may purchase from our Site only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

In placing an order you confirm that you are aware of the age restrictions that may apply to the Digital Content and assert that you are old enough to purchase such content.

No Content from this Site may be copied, republished, reproduced, uploaded, posted, transmitted or distributed in any way other than for personal, non-commercial use.

Ebooks’r’us grants you a limited, non-transferable and revocable license to access and personally use our Site. This license allows you to buy your eBook(s) by permanently downloading it and agreeing to keep intact all copyright, trademark and other proprietary notices.

All eBooks sold on this Site are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM).

DRM allows publishers to prevent unauthorized reproduction of their books. It includes the copy and print rules that have been set by each of the publishers.

All of the eBooks available to buy on our Site are DRM protected before they are sent to you. This means that there are some security controls built into the downloaded eBook which prevent copyright infringements such as excessive copying or printing.

We recommend you download your eBook(s) using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).

ADE is a free eBook reader software program that is used for acquiring, managing and reading digital content. ADE implements DRM and ensures user authentication through an Adobe ID.

ADE is like a virtual bookcase and allows you to create book shelves to arrange your eBooks, just like a library. It also allows to add, remove or sort books easily.

ADE is also required to transfer books between your personal computer and other devices that you own such as an eReader, tablet or smart phone. The software allows you to transfer your eBook content to several other devices on the condition that you ensure your devices are authorised with the same ADOBE ID BEFORE any eBooks are downloaded.

Please note, if you do not register the devices that you own with an ADOBE ID prior to downloading your eBook, then your eBooks will be tied to the device that you downloaded it onto and will not be able to be shared with other devices you own.

For further information, we suggest you visit the following pages on the Adobe website:
