PSTEC Worldwide Ltd and also PSTEC LLC wants to encourage those doing self help. We also wish to support self employed therapists working one to one in a NON corporate setting and to make PSTEC as easy and affordable as possible.
Corporate use is also welcome and is already underway. Use within schools or for educational establishments, health organisations, councils, larger businesses and similar larger entities is covered by licensing and is subject to additional terms and controls. Lone therapists must also study the licensing section if they have any intent to use PSTEC in any corporate setting. Such use may be forbidden or require a license.
As such and in respect of these terms, "personal use" refers ONLY to the treatment of oneself using PSTEC. All professional users should certainly and carefully read the terms fully.
The standard PSTEC therapy system has been made freely available to any individual who wishes to undertake self help or to use PSTEC on themselves. As stated above, additional terms and conditions do apply to professional users.
Professional, businesses or corporate users wishing to use PSTEC should be especially sure to carefully study all terms including the section of these terms headed: "Copyright, Limitations of Use, Business Use & Corporate Licenses For Use".
For example: Staff welfare schemes require licenses. Schools require licenses for use. Third party services to schools are also strictly controlled. And some organisations may be refused licenses if their usage is not deemed appropriate or beneficial by PSTEC Worldwide Ltd. If you are unsure in any way then you need to contact PSTEC Worldwide Ltd and wait for a response..
The copyrighted PSTEC process is not warranted in any way. Dealing with serious issues requires the user to think about those issues and to recall things which may be painful. The PSTEC process has been represented as fully and honestly as possible and this representation is based upon feedback already received but you should make your own decisions as regards its appropriateness for any particular issue or problem. No therapeutic method is perfect or absolutely suited to every user.
PSTEC is not advocated for children or under 18s unless such use is under the guidance and supervision of an appropriately trained adult; therefore any such use should be monitored by a someone who has received special training via PSTEC Services or alternatively by a therapist who has studied PSTEC to advanced level and preferably one who has also passed the exams at that level. Use in or by schools or similar establishments requires a license (see licensing section). The licensing criteria are there to ensure such use is appropriate and that only well trained persons undertake it.
PSTEC is not advocated for pain control because whilst it may very well work you should always seek medical assistance for such problems. The process may trigger memories. If you have doubts about your ability to use the process then you may like to consider engaging the services of a therapist or mentor to guide you. Some people have reported physical responses. Some people have reported a churning in the stomach for emotional issues. Some people find the process tiring and so you may wish to avoid too many repetitions at any given time or to sleep on it afterwards. Occasionally people have reported other physical sensations including (very rarely) pain, which subsequently passed. You use the process at your own discretion and you accept full and sole liability for its use. Those with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, epilepsy or mental illnesses, or those who are receiving psychological treatment for a problem should always seek medical advice prior to use. Likewise if you are in any doubt as to its appropriateness for any issue or if you are medicating for a particular problem then you should seek professional advice. The information on this site should not be regarded as a substitute for the advice of a licensed medical practitioner and is not intended as such. With regard to the PSTEC weight loss tracks, no claim is made with regard to results any individual can expect, nor is any warranty implied.
Professional Ethics: It is expected that therapists/counselors and the like who use PSTEC will do so ethically and that they will also behave in a professional manner at all times. Therapists/Counselors and the like who purchase training materials and/or who choose to use the PSTEC logos or make reference to the registered PSTEC trademark may have their rights to do so completely removed if we believe there is any doubt regarding their ethics or standard of behaviour. The same would apply if they are deemed to have behaved in any way which would bring disrepute. Under such circumstances notice would be given in writing and no further use of the PSTEC materials or trademarked name would be permitted in any way thereafter. Therapists advertising PSTEC are not vetted. Just because a therapist may be advertising PSTEC, it should not be taken as an endorsement of their ability, ethics or experience. Likewise inclusion of therapists trainers or coaches on any PSTEC website should not be regarded as an endorsement of either them, their ethics or their abilities. Opinions expressed by third parties: Opinions and claims made with regard to PSTEC by affiliates or by other third parties should not be accepted as fact. The PSTEC copyright holder will not be held liable for any claims of efficacy made by third parties.

Copyright, Limitations of Use, Business Use & Corporate Licenses For Use
PSTEC took a huge amount of work to develop and so the PSTEC process is the intellectual property of the copyright owner. The audio files and the process are subject to copyright which means that without signed, and witnessed prior written agreement from the copyright owner you can't sell them. You cannot distribute them, or create derivatives but you are more than free to use them on yourself. Likewise if you are a self employed therapist you may use them in your therapy practice but ONLY for one to one therapy with private individuals who are paying for their own treatment. Without a valid PSTEC license you cannot use PSTEC for the benefit of any kind of corporate entity, health, business, education or otherwise (see details below). Business/Corporate work or similar work for is subject to additional terms.
For example, any business, organisation or public body numbering more than three people MUST be licensed and adhere to additional terms and conditions if wishing to use PSTEC since such use is considered corporate.
Likewise a therapist contracted to work for such an organisation, eg: a school, or health department or Council is deemed by PSTEC Worldwide Ltd and by PSTEC Services to be a employee of such an organisation and therefore the organisation MUST ensure that they have a valid license for use of PSTEC. With regard to corporate use and exactly as would be the case with other media (eg movies) the corporate use of PSTEC without valid licensing place would be a criminal offence and subject to state penalties.
Therapists working in corporate context must notify the organisation of their need for a license. Such notification must be made in writing to the client organisation and a full copy of the correspondence must also be sent immediately to the following email address: email@example.com and headed "CORPORATE NOTIFICATION HAS BEEN MADE". The email must also contain appropriate contact details for both the therapist and also the organisation in question. Use in breach of these simple terms is illegal and may be met with legal action.
As has been stated, corporate work, or work for the public sector is subject to certain additional terms and such organisations do require a "Corporate Usage License" for such use of PSTEC.
At its discretion PSTEC Worldwide via PSTEC Services my choose to offer a corporate license for a free trial. Licenses are issued for such use which specify duration and terms. Such organisations MUST purchase a license for the use of PSTEC if such use extends beyond the one off trial period of not more than 6 weeks or if PSTEC is to be used with more than 10 people.
Outside of such a one off trial period, corporate use of PSTEC is STRICTLY prohibited without a full and valid "Corporate Usage License" (hereafter simply referred to as license). These licenses are issued only by PSTEC Services agents under the auspices of PSTEC Worldwide Ltd or by PSTEC Worldwide Ltd itself. Such corporate use licenses are valid for no more than 12 months from the date of issue. Licenses must to be renewed annually or the right to use PSTEC will lapse immediately. (Full details are covered in the individual licenses since the contents may vary business to business, organisation to organisation.
PSTEC Services agents can be contacted via PSTEC Worldwide Ltd. Licenses for corporate use can only be purchased either directly from PSTEC Worldwide Ltd, or from PSTEC Services agents who are authorised to offer PSTEC Pro tools by consent of PSTEC Worldwide Ltd. In order to renew a license or to make an enquiry as to cost, either consult your agent directly (a list of authorised agents is available on request) or alternatively please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and title it "CORPORATE LICENSE REQUEST".
The cost of a license is dependent upon the intended uses and also on the size and nature of the organisation wishing to use PSTEC. The price will be determined based on information supplied by the registering organisation. Such information must be accurate and meaningful. If the level of use increases considerably then this should be notified so that the license may be reviewed. License requests are unlikely to be refused but PSTEC Worldwide or its agents reserves the right to refuse the granting of corporate licenses if it deems such a refusal appropriate. Failure to follow procedure or to pay license fees on time, may result in complete revocation of all rights to use PSTEC. Use of PSTEC by such bodies without an appropriate license must cease. Any failure to do so would be breach of copyright. And due to international law regarding copyright deliberate continuance may be subject to severe penalties. We recognise that people sometimes overlook things and we consider fairness and generosity important, and so rather than be punitive, the option to pay retrospective license fees may be offered. Therefore where an organisation can be shown to have inadvertently overlooked the license requirement it should be possible to pay a retrospective license fee. At the discretion of PSTEC Services, under the auspices of PSTEC Worldwide LTD, these may be charged either at the normal rate or at a higher than normal rate. Corporate entities numbering more than 3 persons who deliberately ignore these requirements automatically agree to pay any license fee deemed appropriate by PSTEC Worlkdwide Ltd. Wheresoever used, ownership of PSTEC™ and the PSTEC tools and processes remains that of the copyright holder Tim Phizackerley and PSTEC Worldwide Limited.
Use in 3rd party ventures, and additional information regarding Corporate or Government use:
Please remember that unauthorised distribution of the PSTEC audio is strictly prohibited. Therefore if you want to incorporate it in training materials or programmes, courses, CDs, books, other products or to use PSTEC as part of other commercial ventures, or for large scale programmes then you must seek, and first be granted written permission by the copyright owner. Any corporate or public body use will most probably require purchase of a license. (see above). This applies to both profit and non-profit ventures. (See Requests and Enquiries Regarding Commercial Use; below). Copyright violations, either direct or by means of derivatives will be subject to legal action.
Loss of goods following purchase:
Some people have requested that downloads be resent to them many months after purchase, simply because they changed or upgraded their computers. In other words they lost the files.
In exactly the same way as with shop bought physical purchases, responsibility rests with the buyer to look after their purchase and not to lose it.
Because PSTEC now has many thousands of users, such requests for resends can create a huge and completely unnecessary overhead in terms of support time. Therefore, whether products are resent is at our discretion. If we do offer to resend a product, there will be a $10 charge for each product resent.
Limit of liability with respect to goods offered:
If any PSTEC products have been downloaded or purchased from this or other copyright holder licensed PSTEC websites such as www.pstecaudiosource.org, the total limit of liability will not exceed the purchase value under any circumstances. For example, and with regard to something such as a defective CD, it may either be refunded or replaced at the discretion of PSTEC LLC. With regard to the purchase of sealed goods such as a CD: Right to cancel does not apply once the seal is broken. Notification of such should be sent by email. In the event of a number of products being purchased, but only a fraction proving faulty, the liability would be determined on a proportionate basis. The purchaser may be asked to arrange return of the goods in order to obtain such recompense. See also "Returns policy" (below).
With regards to PSTEC Worldwide Ltd or PSTEC Services, English Courts only will have jurisdiction with regard to any dispute of any kind. With regard to any dispute over payments or any services offered by PSTEC LLC, American courts have jurisdiction.
Requests and Enquiries Regarding Commercial Use
PSTEC is copyright. However since the PSTEC Percussive Suggestion Technique™ is so incredibly effective and so astonishingly predictable there may be those who would like to incorporate the technique into commercial ventures such as corporate training programmes, books, videos, audio programs, management or personal change training courses, CDs etc. All such use is prohibited without written permission from the copyright holder & PSTEC Worldwide Ltd. However rather than be completely protectionist in this regard we will be more than happy to discuss such things with you so please get in touch.
To discuss requests for commercial uses such as those just mentioned please call on the phone rather than by email since the PSTEC mailbox can get rather busy. Failure to do so and to get approval as stated above would constitute copyright infringement and legal action would be likely to follow.
--- Please Note: A special PSTEC package for corporate use exists. Please enquire ---
