Electronic Documents Help

Electronic documents provide you with enhanced flexibility – portability, convenience and keyword searches. With this flexibility comes the increased possibility of copyright infringement – accidental or otherwise.

Read Your e-Book on an e-Reader.

Starting in 2008, ASQ will include a visible “watermark” on electronic documents – specifically e-standards and our e-books. The watermark will include:

  • The name of the customer.
  • The name of the customer’s company (when applicable).
  • The order number.
  • The date of purchase.
  • Additional text that details the conditions of sale and use.

Sales of our intellectual property are one of the primary sources of funding for ASQ. It’s imperative that ASQ manages access to electronic documents based on copyright ownership and protecting content rights. This protection is essential to the continued cost-effective development, distribution, and promulgation of e-standards and e-books.

For more information specifically relating to content protection for e-standards, please review the brochure Copyright, Standards and the Internet (PDF, 644 KB) from ISO and IEC.

If you are not 100% satisfied with products you purchase from us, call and give us the opportunity to make it right. We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase from ASQ. Due to the nature of the product, electronic documents are not covered by ASQ’s guarantee. These items are nonreturnable and nonrefundable – all purchases are final. This includes ASQ’s e-standards and e-books.

If you wish to return merchandise, please call customer service at 800-248-1946 to arrange for a return, or send returns to: ASQ Distribution Center, 905 Carlow Dr Unit B, Bolingbrook IL 60490.
