We are not liable or responsible for the content or operation of third-party sites or resources. You should read any user terms and privacy policies and the like on third-party sites, as they are likely to differ from ours.

All the articles published in the Advanced Materials Letters require a subscription to be accessed. These are the terms and conditions with respect to the subscription:
Your organization may have a corporate subscription permitting you as an authorized user to access additional content on the site. Alternatively, you may have an individual subscription that gives you access to additional content on the site. If you benefit from a corporate or individual subscription, the relevant subscription terms will govern your access to and use of that additional content (it may, for instance, give you wider rights to print and copy that additional content). These terms, however, will still apply to any other content on, and to any content that you submit to, the site. If you wish to submit a manuscript or any other work to us for review and/or potential publication in Advanced Materials Letters, you will normally be asked to complete a license to publish agreement which will govern the publication of your manuscript or other contribution in the Advanced Materials Letters. These Terms, however, will still apply to other content that you submit to the site.
The information contained on the site is for information purposes only and does not constitute advice. You should check any information on the site and use your own judgment before doing or not doing anything on the basis of what you see. We make no representations or warranties with respect to the site or its contents. All warranties, expressed or implied, including (without limitation) the implied warranties of satisfactory quality and fitness for purposes relating to the site and/or its content and/or any website to which it is linked are hereby to the fullest extent permitted by law. No warranties are given as to the accuracy or completeness of the information provided on the site, or any website to which it is linked.
Except for liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or deliberate breach of these Terms by us, we are not liable for anything else such as:
*any action you may take as a result of relying on any information provided on the site or for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of you taking such an action;
*any dealings you have with third parties (e.g. other users, advertisers or promoters) that take place using or facilitated by the site;
*any liability for loss that is not a foreseeable or likely consequence of
i. your use of the site, or
ii. a breach of these Terms;
*any business loss connected with your trade, business or profession.
Without prejudice to the generality of the exclusions of liability contained in both these clauses and in the Legal Notice, we are not responsible if you cannot access the site properly or at all or if some of its features are unavailable to you because of any event outside our control, for example (without limitation) the performance of your or our ISP, your browser or the Internet or limitations in the capability of your accessing device. The site relies in part on software to work. The software has bugs. Whilst we will monitor the site and try to fix bugs, we cannot guarantee that the site or any individual feature of the site will be error free, available all the time, and/or free from viruses. However, nothing in these Terms will affect any liability we may have for death or personal injury arising from our negligence or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited by law.
Maintenance of the site
Making your use of the site enjoyable means we need to fix bugs, install updates, and do general diagnosis and maintenance of the site. We perform scheduled maintenance during times when we anticipate that online use is lower than normal. We also need to be able to do emergency maintenance and/or suspend access to the servers where, in our reasonable discretion, we see the need to do that. We will try to have the site available again as soon as we think it is safe to do so.
Validity of these terms
If any part or provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful or unenforceable, it shall not affect the validity of any other part or provision.
Jurisdiction and applicable law
These Terms are governed by Swedish law. The Swedish courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute relating to these Terms.
