Terms and ConditionsClose

How you can use our service

We have written our Terms & conditions in plain English. Our Privacy and cookie policy forms part of the Terms & conditions, so please read that too. If anything is not clear, please contact us and we’ll do our best to explain.

If you use our services you must agree to these conditions. If you do not agree with them, you must not use our services.

What this covers: These Terms & conditions explain how you can use this website any other services we offer.

Who we are: This service is owned and run by Baylis Community Media CIC publishers of the Maidenhead Advertiser, Slough Express and Windsor Express.


What you can use the service for: You can use the website for personal, academic or non-commercial purposes, subject to these Terms & conditions.

Provide a reference if you use any material from the site: If you use any content from the website, whether online or offline, you must make it clear where you have found the material by including a reference to the Baylis Media Archive (www.baylismediaarchive.co.uk); The Baylis Community Media CIC Board and also the copyright statement that appears on the page you are on. If you’re using material from a newspaper, you can find the copyright reference on the back page of each edition and date of the publication (under the newspaper page image in the viewer).

Using site content for commercial purposes: Please contact us if you want to reproduce or share any of the content on the site (including images of newspapers) for commercial purposes. This includes commercial publishing or sharing in any media format now known, or invented in the future. In many cases, we can make a commercial licence available to you, but you will need to agree this with the copyright owners who licence material to us. You're free to use and share the content on the site for non-commercial use as long as you provide a reference and copyright statement.

Intellectual property rights (including copyright): All intellectual property rights in the website and the content in it belongs to us or has been licensed to us. You can only use it for the purposes described in these Terms & conditions. All other rights are reserved.


Personal data and payment security: Please read our Privacy and cookie policy to find out how we store and protect your personal data. We do not store credit or debit card information. All transactions are made through Paypal.

Registering on the site: You have to register and be signed in to use some features of the website. If you are over 12, you can register and use the services that we make available for free. However, if you want to pay for a service, you must be over 18 or have permission from your legal guardian (usually a parent).

Keep your personal information safe, and up to date: Keep your sign in details private at all times, do not share them with anybody, and let us know if you think somebody else has access to them. Do not use the “remember me” feature to keep yourself signed in unless you are using your own personal computer. You must keep your personal information accurate and up to date, especially your email address.


Paying for services: Searching the site is free, but to view the newspapers, you have to pay a fee using PayPal either as a guest using a credit card or debit card or using a PayPal account : the different packages are shown on our subscriptions page but generally include a single edition purchase and subscription packages. No contract between us exists until the order is completed and we have accepted your payment through PayPal.

Single Edition purchase: If you buy a single edition, it is a one-off payment and will remain active in your account until such times that you request for your account to be deleted.

Cancellation and your right to a refund: If you buy a subscription or a single edition, you can contact us and cancel within 14 days (starting on the day after you receive our confirmation email) and we will give you a full refund as long as you have not viewed any newspaper images during that period. If you have used the service to view images, we cannot offer a refund. We do not provide refunds if you cancel after this 14 day period.

Fair Usage: We have a fair usage policy which is designed purely for the (very rare) cases where people might abuse the service, for example by allowing multiple people to use the same account. If your page views are extremely high we’ll contact you to discuss your usage and reserve the right to terminate your access if this level of usage continues after we’ve been in contact, or if we can’t get in contact with you.

You cannot share your account: Each account can only be used by a single person at one time. If you are part of an organisation that wants to provide access to several people at one time, contact us to find out more. Multiple access will be considered for schools and libraries and anyone else who needs several people to have access at the same time.


Availability of the service: We do not guarantee or promise that our services will always be available or fully functional. We will not be liable to you for any losses you might suffer from lack of availability.

Changes to the service: Our services are provided on an “as is” basis and are subject to change. We reserve the right to withdraw elements of the service or any content within it at any time and will not be liable to you for any losses you might suffer. However where we remove content from your subscription, we will try to replace any content you have paid for with a comparable substitute.

Things beyond our control: We will not be liable to you for any loss you may suffer during any period where we cannot provide a service as a result of circumstances beyond our control. This includes circumstances such as Acts of God, strikes, equipment failure and anything else we cannot reasonably be expected to have control over. We will always try to notify you about such problems.

Some legal bits:

Liability: The only warranties or promises we give are set out in this document. We can’t accept liability for any indirect or consequential losses, loss of data or any unwanted use of your content you suffer from using the website, although we never limit liability for personal injury or death caused by our negligence, fraud or breach of statutory duty. For any other loss you suffer that is caused by us, we limit the liability we have to you to the total money you spent on the website in the 12 calendar months before the event giving rise to the claim. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Content Providers: If you violate the copyright of any copyright owner who licences content on the website to us, they can also take action against you directly.

Assignment: These Terms & conditions and our Privacy & cookie policy are personal to you, and you are not allowed to transfer your rights under this agreement to anyone else.

Severance: If any part of these Terms & conditions, or the Privacy & cookie policy no longer applies or is no longer legally enforceable, it will be removed and the rest will continue to apply.

The law: These Terms are made under English law, and any arguments about them will only be heard in English courts.

Changes to this agreement: Any changes we make to this agreement will be made on this page and dated. If they are material changes (as opposed to minor typographical, stylistic changes or those that will not affect the service provided to you) and you are not happy with these changes, please let us know. If you do not agree to the new Terms & conditions, we will (at our discretion) cancel your subscription or other payment package and provide you with a pro-rata refund.

When we might stop you using the website: If you break these Terms & conditions, regularly break the fair usage limit, or we cannot take a payment for a subscription when it is due, we reserve the right to stop you using the website and to terminate our agreement. In all these cases you will have no right to a refund.

Customer support and complaints: We always aim to fix problems where we can. If you have a question, suggestion or complaint about the website or any of the content featured on the website please let us know and we’ll do our best to sort it out.

We hope that’s clear (and fair). If you feel it isn’t or you have another question that isn’t covered, please get in touch.
