3.1 Terms and Conditions for the Subscription to Standards
A Subscription to Standards entitles the Buyer to compile their own collection from the standards that are electronically available in our webshop on www.standard.no.
3.1.1 Price calculation of standards in a subscription
The Buyer can add new standards to the Web Subscription service at any time. Calculation of the licensing price for standards facilitated in the Service is based on ISO rules (Rules for granting copyright exploitation rights for internal use of ISO standards in electronic format) which assume that it runs for at least three (3) years. In the year in which the contract is signed or new standards are added to an existing subscription, the remainder of the year is invoiced in whole quarters, including the commenced quarter, based on the annual licensing price.
3.1.2 Pricing of withdrawn standards in the Subscription
Standards that are withdrawn during a Contract year will be available at no extra cost until 31 December that year. If the Buyer chooses to continue the subscription for the withdrawn standards, the price for the following year of the agreement will be discounted in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions set out on www.standard.no. If the Buyer chooses to subscribe to withdrawn standards other than those previously subscribed to in the Subscription, these will be priced in accordance with the applicable terms and conditions set out on www.standard.no.

3.4.1 Offline Solution – applies to standards and standards collections
This solution enables access to read the standards in the Standards Collection without being connected to the internet. The standards can be stored locally at the user's premises, but will become inaccessible after 30 days to ensure use of updated and valid standards.

If the Buyer chooses the Offline Solution in addition to the Web Subscription, this will be listed in Appendix 4 with the price at the time the contract was entered into.
3.4.2 Direct Links – applies to standards and standards collections
The Buyer can subscribe to links to standards in the Subscription that can be used in the Buyer’s internal documents. Links that are inserted in such documents will take the user directly to the standard. The links are static and are suitable for documents that refer to a given standard that will also apply in the future. If the Buyer chooses the service Direct Links in addition to the Web Subscription, this will be listed in Appendix 4 with the price at the time the contract was entered into.
If the link refers to a standard that must always be the latest updated version, the link must be updated in the internal documents at each new revision. This is the Buyer’s responsibility.

The Project Module is a supplementary service in the eForm Service that enables forms to be linked to projects defined by you. This ensures a better overview of which forms have been used for which projects.
3.4.5 ‘Enhanced access’
The service ‘Enhanced access...’ grants the buyer the right to electronically reproduce all or parts of the standards that the buyer subscribes to in their own software.

Access to the ‘Enhanced access...’ service is governed by a separate agreement.
