It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Authentik will be going into liquidation. Throughout the recession we have put forward all our efforts to survive despite cuts in spending to education, despite reduced numbers taking languages and despite huge challenges in the publication sector. Unfortunately, these efforts have not been enough and we will be closing the doors on Authentik Language Learning Resources Ltd.
We were unfortunately not able to complete the production of our Summer 2013 editions. We know that this means that some of you will not have received your full subscriptions for this year and we apologise for all the inconvenience this will cause. In lieu of the publications, we are providing all customers with free Digital Exam Practice Books to download here:
AS/A2 Digital Listening Practice Tests 2009
AS/A2 Digital Reading Practice Tests 2009
GCSE Digital Listening Practice Tests 2009
We hope that your classes will find the Exam Practice Books a useful resource for the summer term.
We hope that you have enjoyed using our language products during the past 32 years and we wish to thank you for your custom and your support over the years. We have been very proud of our products and of the wonderful team of editors and designers who have produced them and it is with great regret that we have to stop production of these resources for language teachers and learners.
We wish you every success and happiness in the future!
The Authentik Team
No contract will subsist between you and Authentik for a sale to you of any product or service unless and until Authentik accepts your order by e-mail confirming that it has dispatched your order. That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time Authentik sends the e-mail to you (whether or not you receive that e-mail).
The price listed on the Website (the Price) for Authentik Bookstore products (the Products) will be as stipulated at the time when you place your order on the website. We are entitled to make adjustments to the Price to take account of any increase in our suppliers prices, or the imposition of any new taxes or duties, or if due to an error or omission the Price for the Products on the Website is wrong.
We will endeavour to deliver the Products to you within 3-7 working days of your Account order, where this is practical. However, Products are subject to availability and delays may sometimes occur that are outside of our control. Any dates specified for delivery are therefore approximate only. If delivery is delayed for more than 21 days, you have the right to contact us and refuse to accept the Products. In these circumstances, we will refund any money paid by you for those Products and any delivery monies you have been charged. However, we will not be responsible for any other losses, costs, damages or charges that you may suffer if we delay in supplying or do not supply those Products. At the time of delivery you may be required to validly sign-off on the delivery of the Products, after which time the Products become your sole responsibility.
