Terms & Conditions

Last Updated: 1 May 2023

Welcome to Elementum eBooks! Our guiding values are the universal Hindu Law of Karma (You reap as you sow) and the Confucian Golden Rule (Treat others as you want others to treat you). We strive to put this in action by basing our behaviour on:

  • Honesty, ie we do as we say;
  • Fairness and Reciprocity, ie we treat you the way we’d like to be treated;
  • Personal Accountability, ie we are responsible for our actions and we
    acknowledge our mistakes;
  • Rationality, ie our actions are based on logic and common sense; and
  • As large a dose of wonder, adventure, and humour as we are able to muster.

We hope you can give us some leeway when we fail.

We offer useful, authoritative eBooks at fair prices. We wouldn’t pirate something that belonged to you and ask that you don’t pirate our eBooks (the royalties ofwhich are shared amongst several parties).

Finally, remember our eBooks provide general information, not personalised advice. The author’s contact details are given at the end of the eBook; feel free to contact her or him if you’re after advice.

Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 1 May 2023

This Privacy Policy describes Elementum’s policies and procedures on the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information.

  1. What information do we collect?
    We collect your personal information (given name and family name, email address, and, if provided, payment information) only if you choose to create n account with us.

    Usage data (your IP address, browser type and version, data on Elementum website pages you visit, etc) is collected automatically when you use our service.

    In future, we may collect information from third-party social-media sites such as Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and Twitter if you create an Elementum account through them or otherwise grant us access to this information.

  2. How do we use the information collected?

    We use your personal information, usage data, and tracking data only to provide, monitor, and improve our services.

    Your personal information helps us to maintain a relationship with you (if you wish to maintain a relationship with us) and provide special services for registered users (eg, an education-focused newsletter).

    From time to time, we will use anonymised information for internal data analysis, identifying usage trends, determining the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, and evaluating and improving our products and services.

    Finally, we may need your personal data to comply with legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

  3. How will we disclose the information collected?

    We may share your personal information with business partners, affiliates, and service providers. Reasons may include strategic analysis and out-sourced marketing services. We will require all such parties to honour this Privacy Policy. If you interact with other users or register through a third-party socialmedia site, your contacts there may see your Elementum-related activity.

    Information collected may be stored or processed wherever our Website servers are found; at Elementum’s operating offices; and, if required, in other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. It means that this information, in whole or in part, may be maintained on and transferred to computers located in various jurisdictions.

    Elementum will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Elementum will allow no transfer of personal data to take place unless the receiving party has promised us it has established adequate security controls.

  4. How can I view, modify, or delete my personal information on Elementum? How do I make a complaint?

    If you are a registered user, sign in to your account to view or modify your information, or delete your account to remove the personal data we have about you.

    If you would like us to correct or delete your personal information, or you would like to make a complaint about our Privacy Policy, write to us at

    Note that we may need to retain some information for some time or in good faith disclose personal data to government authorities to comply with legal obligations or protect Elementum’s rights.

    Other than for these reasons, you always have a choice over what information
    about yourself is stored.

  5. Changes to this Privacy Policy

    We will be updating this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will keep things as simple as we can, will highlight all changes made, and will email registered users to inform them of major changes.


We value your faith in us. We treat your personal data the way we would like ours to be treated (Karma, Golden Rule). We have kept this Privacy Policy as short and simple as possible so you can understand what is happening with your information. Nevertheless, remember that no method of electronic storage or method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to adhere to commercially acceptable means of protecting your personal data, we cannot guarantee its security. We also have no control over and cannot assume responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.
