2 Use of the Service

2.1 The Service is accessible only to Registered Users who have pre-registered for the Service and been allocated registration details by OPP, including a log-in and password.

2.2 Purchasers and Registered Users are responsible for ensuring the security of their subscription and registration details, including log-in and passwords. Registration details, including log-in and password details, shall not be shared between multiple users. Any loss or theft of such details should be reported to the OPP Group as soon as possible in order that replacement log-in and passwords may be created.

2.3 Use of the Service is subject to these Terms and the Guidelines for Ethical Use of Tests and Questionnaires. We reserve the right to refuse access to the Service if the Purchaser or the Registered User fails to comply with these Terms or the Guidelines.

3 Registration

3.1 We seek to uphold the guidelines established by the British Psychological Society (or other appropriate bodies outside the UK) on sale and use of psychometric instruments. Therefore, purchases of our psychometric instruments must be made by an identified Registered User who is registered with us as a qualified user of that psychometric instrument. In order to register as a qualified user of a particular psychometric instrument, a user must have successfully completed appropriate training provided or approved by us. Details of training offered by OPP are set out in the current catalogue and on OPP's website www.opp.com

3.2 The Purchaser shall ensure that the registration details, including a log-in and password allocated to a Registered User, are only used by that Registered User and that the Registered User at all times complies with these Terms.

3.3 If a Registered User ceases to be an employee of, or associated with, the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall inform us as soon as reasonably possible, and we shall delete the name of the Registered User from our register of OPPassessment users. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Purchaser fails to inform us of any change to its list of permitted Registered Users, and a former employee or associate of the Purchaser continues to use the Service, the Purchaser shall remain liable for any such use of the Service.

4 Ordering

4.1 When a Registered User requests a report in the 'Reports' screen of the OPPassessment website, and then confirms the request in the 'Checkout' screen, an order has been placed.

4.2 Orders cancelled after confirmation will not be refunded.

4.3 An order may be refused if OPP has reasonable grounds to believe that it has not been placed by a bona fideRegistered User.

4.4 Owing to geographical restrictions imposed by government embargo, OPP may refuse orders for the supply of certain questionnaires from Registered Users in certain countries. Further details can be supplied on request. In addition, OPP may, on occasion, refer orders for the supply of certain questionnaires from Registered Users in certain countries to its applicable regional office.

4.5 We will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that reports from the Service are emailed to the Registered User on the same day that the report is requested.

5 Payment

5.1 Subject to clause 5.2, and unless otherwise agreed in writing, we will process orders for reports from the Service only by online payment using a valid debit or credit card at the time of making the order.

5.2 As an alternative to online payment at the time of order, Report Credits may be ordered in advance as follows:

5.2.1 In the event that a Purchaser who is an authorised credit-account-holder orders Report Credits totalling £250 or more (ex VAT) in a single transaction, we will invoice the Purchaser, and such invoices will be paid by the Purchaser within 30 days of the date of invoice. The Report Credits ordered will be available on the Service normally within one hour of the order being processed.

5.2.2 In the event that a Purchaser who is an authorised credit-account-holder orders Report Credits totalling less than £250 (ex VAT) in a single transaction, the Report Credits will become available on the Service only once we have received payment in cleared funds.

5.2.3 Purchasers who are not credit-account-holders may purchase Report Credits, in which case such Report Credits will become available on the Service once we have received payment in cleared funds.

5.3 We reserve the right to charge you interest and costs of recovery in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 (as amended).

5.4 Unless otherwise stated, the price payable for the Service will be the price as set out in the current OPP catalogue; VAT will be added to the price where applicable.

6 Report Credits

6.1 Report Credits shall have a duration of use of twelve (12) months from the date of purchase, subsequent to which any unused Report Credits shall expire. 

6.2 Report Credits are non-refundable and must be for specific report types in specific quantities; we regret it is not possible to pre-pay for general credits usable for any of our range of reports. Report Credits are exchangeable for other OPP products and services provided that: (i) there is only one exchange during the twelve (12) month duration of use period; and (ii) the expiry date of the twelve (12) month duration of use period in respect of the original Report Credit(s) shall remain in relation to the product or service for which that Report Credit(s) is exchanged.

6.3 In the event that Report Credits are issued by OPP as part of a training workshop, for which the price is integral to the cost of such workshop, the duration of use of such Report Credits shall be limited to three (3) months, subsequent to which any such Report Credits which are unused shall expire.

7 Purchaser's obligations

7.1 The Purchaser understands and acknowledges that in order to use the Service certain technical requirements relating to hardware and software available to the Registered User and the test-taker will need to be met. Further details can be supplied on request.

7.2 The Purchaser may provide the Materials to individual test-takers in order for such test-takers to be assessed under the Purchaser's supervision; in no other circumstances may the Purchaser give, sell, or otherwise dispose of, the Materials or the Service, or any part of the Materials or Service, to third parties or act as agent or distributor of the Materials or the Service. Any on-selling or any unauthorised use, reproduction or modification of the Materials and/or the Service is strictly prohibited.

7.3 The Purchaser may not make use of data collected as a result of the Purchaser's use of the Service to create products for commercial sale or other commercial exploitation.

7.4 The Purchaser shall comply with the Guidelines for Ethical Use of Tests and Questionnaires.

OPP shall have no responsibility or liability in relation to any such customisation of the Service, including any infringement of third party intellectual property rights, misuse, or unlawful or inappropriate content.

7.6 In the event that the Purchaser is not also the Registered User, the Purchaser shall ensure that any and all Registered Users comply with the obligations set out in clauses 7.2 to 7.5 as if such Registered User were the Purchaser.

7.7 The Purchaser shall indemnify OPP in the event that OPP or OPP's licensors suffer any losses, claims, liabilities, damages, expenses or costs as a result (whether direct or indirect) of any breach by the Purchaser or the Registered User(s) of clauses 7.2 to 7.6.

7.8 The Purchaser shall further indemnify OPP in respect of any claims brought by a test-taker or client of the Purchaser against us or our licensors in relation to the Purchaser's use of the Service or the Materials.

7.9 All Purchasers and Registered Users shall be required, in using OPP's Materials to verify any local requirements and/or restrictions on using psychometric tests in general and the Materials in particular, in that jurisdiction, whether imposed by law, regulation or by a local regulatory or governmental body. Where any local requirements and/or restrictions exist that alter the criteria for, or prevent, use of Materials within a particular jurisdiction, it shall be the responsibility of the Purchaser and Registered User to ensure that it fully complies with any and all such local requirements and/or restrictions.  Where any individual or entity uses Materials in a particular jurisdiction in contravention of any local requirements and/or restrictions, whether knowingly or inadvertently, such individual or entity shall be solely responsible and liable for such use and shall hold harmless and indemnify the OPP Group in respect of any loss or claim by a third party against OPP arising from such. Further, in the event that a Purchaser and/or Registered User has failed to ensure that any Materials may be legitimately used within a particular jurisdiction and subsequently purchases Materials for use in that jurisdiction, such Purchaser and/or Registered User shall be liable for the costs thereof and the OPP Group shall bear no responsibility or liability for return of such Materials or the reimbursement of any associated costs.
