Last Updated 28 December 2023


These terms and conditions govern your use of our website and your purchase of any products or services offered by Architecting IT, a brand name of Brookend Ltd ("we" or "us"). Please read these terms carefully before using our website. By accessing and using our website, you signify acceptance of these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms, please close your browser tab now, and do not use our website. We reserve the right to amend these terms at any time.

Use of Website

You may only use our website for lawful purposes. You agree not to use our website:

  • In any way that breaches any applicable local, national, or international laws or regulations.
  • In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.
  • To transmit, or procure the sending of, any unsolicited or unauthorised advertising or promotional material.
  • To knowingly transmit any data, send or upload any material that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware, or any other harmful programs or similar computer code.

Registration and Accounts

    To access or purchase products or services on our website, you may be required to register and create an account. You must provide accurate and complete information and keep your account information updated. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password.  We do not permit the use of generic “free” email accounts or disposable and may actively block registrations for users attempting to register with non-permitted email address domains.  We frequently review accounts and will delete those accounts for which no valid email address exists, or which are disposable account domains.  Email account validation is performed using 3rd party commercial tools.

    For safety and security reasons, we may delete accounts after two years of inactivity.  This is defined by the last time a user logged into their account to view restricted content.  Accounts pending deletion will receive 28 days' notice before the deletion occurs.

    We reserve the right to suspend accounts at any time, without warning or explanation.  Accounts that do not follow the terms of service may be deleted without warning.

    Purchase of Products and Services

    We offer downloadable and restricted content such as eBooks, white papers, and blog articles.  You agree to pay the fees or charges for any products or services you purchase through our website.  All payments must be made US dollars unless otherwise specified (or converted by your credit card company).  Payments for individual account subscriptions are through credit card to a card owned by the registered user.  Enterprise and Vendor accounts are established offline.  Contact us at [email protected] for pricing and details.

    Refunds and Cancellations

    As all products offered are downloadable digital content, no refunds are offered once the transaction is complete and the content has been downloaded.  There’s no way to put the “genie back in the bottle”.

    Content and Intellectual Property
