ACCESS

Two purchase options are now available as outlined below. Payment is via a secure on-line payment process, which is quick and easy to use. These are one-off payments with no recurring payments. To purchase, click the appropriate Buy Now Button below and follow the on-screen instructions.

OPTION 1: A hard copy of the Library scripts on disc, cost = £44.99 inclusive of packing & postage worldwide. This comes with free on-line access to the Script Library guaranteed for the lifetime of the site (see below *).


I will be removing Option 1 shortly owing to a growing trend towards alternative ways of sharing files such as Option 2 below.

OPTION 2: A copy of the Library scripts via the popular file-sharing facility Dropbox. Cost = £39.99. A link will be sent to your specified E mail address. From this you can download all of the files directly to your device in one click. The download is a compressed zip file which you will need to unzip before use. You do not need to register with Dropbox nor do you need to have the Dropbox app installed on your device. If you are a Dropbox user you can choose to download them to your Dropbox folder. See notes below for more details ** and find out more about Dropbox here. This option also comes with free on-line access to the Script Library guaranteed for the lifetime of the site (see below *).

The Script Library has over 2000 scripts in all – what’s there is what’s listed on the Library Pages . The scripts are provided as pdf files, which can be viewed on-line and downloaded onto your hard drive or mobile devices for viewing off-line and printing. All of these scripts are also included on the disc and Dropbox downloads, and these can be copied in bulk directly onto your own devices. We believe this is the best value for money available in purchasing scripts.

* Those purchasing after 31st March 2019 will be guaranteed access until at least 31st March 2020 and will be granted free access beyond that time for as long as the site remains on-line. I have currently purchased web space until 31st March 2020 – I may keep the site on-line beyond that time subject to financial viability, but this depends on the level of interest in the site going forward. Please note that owing to the uncertain future of the site the annual subscriptions that we used to offer are no longer available.

Further information, including Terms & Conditions is provided below.

Additional Information, FAQ’s and Terms & Conditions etc:

Purchases are to be made via an on-line check-out which is secure, takes less than 5 minutes to use, and gives clear on-screen instructions as you go along. You can pay wherever in the world you are – the currency conversion is done automatically (but if you would like to calculate the costs in your local currency, you can use this currency converter).

Payment Options: You can pay either by using a PayPal account or directly using your credit/debit card (to pay directly by card, choose the Guest Check-Out/Pay by Card option). All major credit and debit cards are accepted. If you don’t have a PayPal account but would like to pay by this method, it is easy to set one up during your purchase, just follow the on-screen instructions. It is not possible to make a purchase by cash or cheque. (Note added February 2019: please note that at some point the direct card payment option had been inadvertently removed, but I’ve now restored it).

After clicking on the appropriate Buy Now Button, you will be directed to an on-line purchase form – purchases are acknowledged immediately by automated E mail (which can be used as a receipt). The purchase form for the disc option requires a postal address to be supplied. The purchase form for the Dropbox option requires an E mail address to be supplied.

Following completion of the purchase form, you will be directed back to our website to complete a registration form so that we can set up your access. If you pay using a PayPal account you will be automatically directed back to our site. For those paying directly by card, you won’t be automatically directed back to our site, although you will have the option to do so. (Please note that if you choose not to return directly to our website, the automated registration will be blocked – in this event, we will still process your order and register you manually, but there may be a short delay in your accessing the scripts).

Please note that the registration form requires you to select a username, password, AND an E mail address (omitting any of these from the required fields will again block the automated registration – we do still process your order and register you manually in this event, but there may be a short delay in your getting on-line access to the scripts). For security reasons we advise that you don’t use a username/password combination that you use on other sites.

Registration Options: There are two registration options presented, one for “new members” (that is those who aren’t currently registered including those with lapsed subscriptions), and one for “current members” (those who currently have an active subscription and are wanting to upgrade). If you don’t select the correct registration option, the automated registration process will be blocked – again, we do still process your order and register you manually in this event, but there may be a short delay to your on-line access.

Upon completion of the registration form you will be automatically logged in to the site (new members will be directed to our Welcome Page). New members will be sent an automated E mail from us confirming your log in details and will be automatically logged in and directed to our Welcome Page. For current members upgrading, there is no E mail – you simply get an on-screen message saying you are already registered – however, we will update your membership details so that your access is automatically extended, and you can then continue to access the Library using your current username and password, as before – disc/Dropbox orders are also processed automatically.

Discs are despatched for postage within 24 hours of purchase and sent by second class post within the UK and by Air Mail oversees. Please therefore allow 2 – 3 working days for postage within the UK and 1 – 2 weeks elsewhere (allow longer at Christmas time when post is frequently delayed). We advise that you make a copy of the files upon receipt.

** The Dropbox link will be E mailed to you within 24 hours. We recommend that you download as soon as possible as the link may not be operational long term. If you download direct to your Dropbox folder we recommend that you make a copy of the files elsewhere on your hard drive as soon as possible as the files may not remain available from within Dropbox long term.

Expiring Subscriptions: Subscriptions are cancelled automatically at midnight on the expiry date as specified at the time of purchase. Reminders are not sent out. If you wish to continue to access the site after this time you will need to make a new purchase under the terms currently available as above.

If you are unsure of the status of your subscription then please contact us by E mail at sdscripts@yandex.com.

Refunds may be issued at our discretion (but note there is now an admin fee of £0.20 for all refunds that is retained by PayPal).

If you forget/lose your username and/or password, please use the lost password facility on the right of the webpage. If that fails, E mail us and we will restore your access. We can’t tell you what your current password is (as it’s encrypted in our database for security reasons), but we can give you a new one. Passwords can be changed at any time by accessing your personal settings (link in the top right hand corner under the log in field). We would advise you to keep a record of your log in details somewhere safe (eg by keeping our initial E mail message).

The Script Library contains all official UK prize-winning dances from 1980 to 2009, most of the prize-winners from the seventies and most of the significant dances from before that, plus a selection of non-prize-winners and unofficial dances, some never previously released. This gives a comprehensive archive of the so called “golden years” of sequence dancing, plus a lot more. It covers most of the popular sequence dances enjoyed by social dancers across the world, including some very old dances, plus most dances of interest to current medallists and competitors. There are around 2000 scripts in total. This encompasses all genres ie Classical, Modern & Latin sequences. Indeed, we have the largest electronic on-line archive in the world and offer the best value for money available in purchasing scripts. The Script Library does not contain video demonstrations, just scripts. The scripts available both on-line and on disc are those listed on the Library/Latest Pages.

The Library Pages/Latest should be consulted to determine the availability of particular scripts that you may require (what’s listed there is what’s available). Those who purchase and then claim to have not realised that scripts of unlisted dances are not available will not be provided with a refund.

If you have any requests for scripts for particular dances not already in the Library, we will endeavour to include them in the future, subject to availability (having said that, virtually everything of any significance is already there – and please note we will not publish very recent dances).

We do not supply individual scripts or send scripts in paper form through the post.

Our electronic scripts are intended for personal use only and are copyright items that must not be shared or disseminated in any way – action will be taken for any infringement of rights.

It is highly recommended that you don’t share your username/password with any third party as it may affect your own access (the number of IP addresses that can access the site on any given username is limited to four per day).

We reserve the right to take the site offline temporarily for essential maintenance and upgrades etc. (however, in the 8 years it has been running there has been less than 7 days of downtime). Should the downtime exceed 7 days we will extend your subscription accordingly.

Once your account is set up you will not receive any unsolicited E mails from us, neither for marketing nor for operational purposes. You can stay up to date on operational matters by reading our News Page and/or our Facebook Page.

You can read our Privacy Policy here. We advise you to read this before purchasing/registering. The registration form requests your consent to our use of personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

Any Questions ? If you have any problems with purchasing, or if you have any other queries or comments, you can contact us direct by E mail at sdscripts@yandex.com.
