In the prior mentioned case publication description and details will be extracted from the publication itself. The publisher can edit the publication details anytime.

3. Subscriptions

A user can view part of any publication without subscribing, purchasing or creating an account. Part of the publication is defined as 10% of total publication length. To view the whole Free publication a user must be registered on our website. If a user has an active subscription that subscription gives the user access to any publication graded below or equal to that subscription level. For a subscription to remain active it must be renewed each month.

We reserve the right to add any taxes required by law to these prices. A one time purchase grants the buyer full access to that publication and only to that publication. Publishers receive 70% standard or upward (if there is a signed contract and agreement between the publisher and Medbrary) from the net value of each publication.

Once a publication is fully accessible to a user in HTML format we cannot guarantee it will not be copied. There is no way to protect HTML output once on the internet. Publishers must accept this fact before publishing their material. We cannot be held responsible for publications or part of publications being copied by users.

7. Payments to publishers or users with active publications

Publishers will be paid by Medbrary in the following cases. 70% of active subscriptions and one time purchases will be paid to the publishers. 70% of active subscriptions (received in the current month) will be divided to each publisher according to total number of active publishers with active publications. This amount will be paid once a month to the publishers account. For one time purchases the publishers account will be automatically credited once a day with the amount received from daily sales. The amount credited for one time purchases is calculated as described in paragraph 4. The publisher chooses when to withdraw his account balance to PayPal. Upon account balance withdrawal any payment processor fees or additiional charges are supported by the publisher. Currently, the only way we pay our publishers is by PayPal. Publishers must have a PayPal account.
